August: The voice of Love
Ancestors in Nature near Earth. The Ancestors and Allies call our attention to the power of transformation that comes through Love. They are asking us to take our love and make it an active love. Part of this transformation requires us to be in a primary relationship with our "voice." Our voice can be literal, coming through in the words we say to others, in expressing our truth and it can also indicate our relationship to the inner voice. Do we speak to ourselves as we would speak to the Ancestors and Allies, or to a beloved? Do we speak with the voice of Love? If we explore and find that we need to make changes here, as always, they are here to support us and will communicate with us if we listen.
A radical shift can happen if we embrace the flow of life and the flow of our personal medicine (our offering to the world and who we naturally are). Flow with who you are. This is the key. Flow implies that we are not resisting; we are finding fluidity. The Ancestors and Allies nudge us to "lighten up" here! There is an abundance of gifts that we have and carry.
The adversary to our independence will try to get close to the stronghold of our wisdom this month and requires decisive action to clear it away. When you see or feel the presence of foreign energy (energy that is not you and is not wanted), name it and send it away. This will usually happen on an energetic level, so what you're doing here is keeping your domain safe and clear. Don't let unwanted or unexamined energies undermine your spiritual resources or planning. Be the master of your personal space by being aware of this.
We can wake up this month by recognizing the sacred collaboration between our eros, our heart's desire for service and devotion to others and the way that we emanate light. Bringing these elements together within will generate brightness and brilliance that blesses many.
You have established a clear foundation of affinity with your Ancestors and Allies that brings your genius alive. Well done.
Lastly, we are being encouraged to get out of the house and explore the other arenas of life this month!
Ritual suggestion: Take a walk to a nearby river, lake or stream and speak to the water spirits and your Ancestor and Ally team. Bring an offering for them because they are offering to lend you a hand this month. The invitation is to tell them where you need help finding your strength.
