journey forward is the theme for the month of June. The combination of
water, earth and fire with additional earth found in the horse month
branch, bodes well for taming the peaking fire element for the upcoming
In today's newsletter, I'll review the qualities of these elements and the best way to navigate through them for best results.
Elevate Your Consciousness!
This month the one water element takes front and center. Water is in
direct opposition to the fire quality of June. The two elements come
together to form steam. In essence, steam can be viewed as prana, chi,
life force that comes to rise in a new form.
Everything that was created, developed and matured now experiences its
own dissolution. On the flip side, the fire element reaches its peak
this month representing the summer solstice. The action of fire is to
expand, illuminate and bring clarity to our vision and goals that are
hopefully in alignment with our soul's mission.
Putting the Two Together:
The benefit of water is adaptability. Regardless of the circumstances
that arise on your journey, water can fit in and play the part. Paying
attention to your intuition, and listening to what others have to say
will help in moving the energy forward. This is important, as there is a
tendency for things to change easily under the influence water,
especially when it comes to career.
The fire element is reaching peak this month with the upcoming summer
solstice. Everything expands, widens and comes to light. There is a
strong discriminating awareness to lead, communicate and mastermind
ideas and situations. You can use these qualities to further develop
your direction, goals and passions.
Earth to Fire - Pillars:
rises above the fire horse pillar this month, and in doing so, creates
stability. The rotational quality of earth gives the fire room to
expand. This bodes well for making decisions.
The earth horse
combination adds the aspects of caution and perceptivity when making
changes this month. These are wonderful qualities to take advantage of
when evaluating your next move, especially since the power of fire can
cause us to react instead of respond when situations arise.
The one water star represents the north portent of your environment. Here are a few pointers for this direction:
Add a moving water feature such as a table-top water fountain.
Incorporate cascading or curved patterns and shapes.
Add metal decorative elements to build the water quality.
Powerful images such as building or bridges in artwork. Water scenes also will bodes well.
water element prefers metal and water foods such as celery, onion,
turnips, fish, seaweed, fennel, cabbage and eggplant. Try to incorporate
these foods into your menu this month to absorb metal and water energy;
two elements that work side-by-side. Furthermore, it will help to cool
down the peaking fire element of the summer solstice.
Other Areas of Concern:
one-water is the highlight trigram for the month, the remaining
trigrams move to different positions. On a very basic level, we are able
to see how other aspects of our life take on this moving energy. Here
are some things to consider:
it comes to family this month, there are plenty of rich resources to
spend time together. Take advantage of this powerful star and engage in
and finances are illuminated this month. There is opportunity for
financial gain. Make sure your goals are in alignment with planned
expenses. Then, take the rest and bank it!
