Here in Santa Fe, the sidewalks are getting crowded as the tourist season picks up…this year I’m noticing more visitors mention they come here to “calm down” rather than shop. The skies are blue again after the fires, and the trains are going to be running on the weekends. The International Folk Mart and Spanish Market were great successes, and the biggest of all, Indian Market, is just around the corner in the middle of the month. Down on the plaza, the crowds are huge for the bandstand’s summer concert series’ best year ever. Viva Santa Fe! a great choice for a weekend or forever.
I”ve been tweaking and writing for my new website as I want to post a lot more short and simple informative pieces about intuition and other metaphysical topics. Right now I’m working on “what’s an intuitive ‘yes’ and what’s an intuitive ‘no’?” More people are asking about their own inner guidance as life gets uncertain…
Lately I’ve been fascinated by the Mayan calendar as it winds down (the 9th and last wave is between March 9-October 28 2011) and have written many messages and articles about these weeks on my blog at www.elissaheyman.com/blog.
Although in the back of my mind is a prediction from January 2011 about “the biggest event of the year happening in late summer or early fall”, I don’t feel drawn to divinate on or predict anything about August, except practical psychic hits like the ones below. Whatever’s changing about what’s coming through to me from the cosmos, may it be interesting and helpful to both of us!
Best wishes, have a wonderful time with whomever’s around,
Pictograph: The 5th Day shows two different phenomena, one inner and one outer. Many people are angry in this country with the consequences of American politics, for instance. Within individuals, many are lit up with inner ambition to live a true life they can love. Many are more willing to shed what needs to be shed, and share what they’ve got.
In honor of the Mayan calendar’s ancient incredible prescience about this time of striking change, this month’s spiritual guidance messages are inspired by its current phase: “The 5th Day”, between July 31st and August 17th. In the evolution of our consciousness, according to calendar scholar Carl Johan Calleman, PhD, (who is respected by the elder Mayans today) the 5th day is associated with “budding”. Budding” is part of a growth cycle that traces the path of the development of “unity consciousness”. A shift towards unity consciousness doesn’t mean it manifests abruptly. It shows up now as it already has in global instances of connection and action. It seems likely more “unity consciousness” will manifest in response to future austerity, producing people who need help.
I interpret the time of budding to be about what’s inside: People are dealing with what they want to bring out of themselves and offer–what they want to be involved in. Or, they’re dealing with what has emerged as being inside of them they now recognize and are able to release. People are setting new patterns as a culmination of inner alignment and choice. Designated so long ago by the Mayans as a significant choice point, it’s essential to keep focused on what you want to grow in your life. What do you really want? You can get on that path now, or something you can’t get rid of can put you on a path. One way or the other, we’re all moving. For some it will be to go deeper.
Spiritual Guidance for August 2011
Be extra tolerant of who comes into your life at this time. A lot of past life karma gets activated in these days, and you might be seeing old friends, or an opportunity to grow through an experience with someone new (who is really old.)
Metaphorically speaking, “Stay out of the sun”. There’s an unusually bright, intense energy in the atmosphere, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Have somewhere cool and shady to retreat to, a place where you feel calm and not pressured. People with no garden or nice empty room of their own, can create a state-of-mind place to go through meditation or guided imagery.
People are in very unusual circumstances these days. Before you judge another as inattentive, a rip-off artist, or annoying in some way, maybe they’re in some sort of an emergency. Give people the benefit of the doubt.
It’s Mercury retrograde basically all of August 2011. Do not make assumptions the route is clear. Don’t just expect people to react to you the same, or do what they always did. Don’t turn off a side road just hoping it goes through. More likely, there’s a gate across it you can’t see.
2011 Mayan 5th Day and August New Moon Readings for the Astrological Signs
Fire signs: (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): Where is home? Zeroing in on home (or what you can commit to, center around) is important now. Clarity about change is galvanizing. Overall, there’s a very positive way forward from where you stand. Sagittarians will get better ideas. Aries are learning about or defining their boundaries and getting established on new roads. Leos are radiating energy– they need to be in a good locale/position and place to make the most of their energy. Protect it!
Water signs: (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): You have to have a lot of faith, because although things are getting to a much better, deeper place, chances are you can’t see that now. If you can feel yourself changing, know that all that happens is on the way to a heart’s desire being fulfilled. What is budding, yet also hidden by time, is a more focused and engaging life.
Air signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius: A cryptic message for you: “Going round and round in circles? STOP! Be still–the truth won’t kill,but dissolve, and what’s left standing you can trust.” You are on the verge of the next phase, let it be one that gives you peace of mind, even if it’s challenging.
Earth signs: (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): What is stirring is new strengths and daring ideas, new inspired directions and gifts. Believe that you have the potential to go in terrific new directions! They are supported and made realizable by your strengths. Bud on!!
