Happy New Year!
The Year of Living Creatively is what I'm currently calling 2017.
That came to me as I was thinking about the major alignments that color this year including the Jupiter/Uranus Opposition, Jupiter/Pluto Square, and Saturn/Uranus Trine as well as the fact that the moving-forward North Node will be royally perched in self-expressive Leo beginning in May for the subsequent year-plus.
It feels like being adaptive, experimental, and flexible may help us not only mitigate challenges but also invent new opportunities. This creative, out-of-the-box, orientation may also include a greater level of commitment and determination to mine hidden terrain and unearth--and honestly embody--deeper motivations and desires.
Connecting to the Art of Living, leading from our heart, and giving ourselves permission to tap into and express our creative potential can mobilize our ability to powerfully take a stand for ourselves as well as the world around us.
The Year of Living Creatively is a riff on the book/film title The Year of Living Dangerously, and it's not devoid of the notion that this year could feel imbued with the need to galvanize courage if we perceive there to be threats to a sense of security, of how we connect to and define fairness and peace. Plus, there's oftentimes a sense of danger in stepping outside of the box and pursuing creative inspirations that emerge from our imagination. Many people aren't used to feeling empowered; it's a new space to inhabit. Yet, once creativity is harnessed, what ends up feeling more dangerous is to not revel in and honor it.
I have been thinking for a while how I wanted to kick off this year, how I wanted to invest it with a new approach, something that could fulfill my desire to make a difference in a new way. Here's what I decided...
For the month of January, I will donate 20% of proceeds from my Stellar Guidance Sessions held this month (or gift certificates purchased) to a non-profit organization focused on upholding civil rights, women's reproductive rights, and/or supporting the environment. These include:
When you have a session you can choose which organization you would like to support and I will donate the money to them. And if they accept donations made in another's name, I will make the donation in your name.
I hope that this year brings you the gifts of joy and freedom, an opportunity to re-invent your path as you deeply desire. I look forward to being one of your guides for this, whether through my writings, classes, and/or personal guidance sessions.
All my best,
