We have made it to the Month of the Wild Women Symposium. I hope some of you lovely ladies will join us for the adventure and exploration into your Divine Feminine. It will be May 29-31, at the Salt Lake Community College, Miller Campus.

Mercury is in Gemini from May 1-July 5, giving you a doorway opening to pathways of communication that can help you move forward in your life. For some of you, that may be in a work area, but others may expand and learn communication with the deeper aspects of your self. Mercury is retrograde from May 19-June 12, so it’s an excellent time to fix patterns of communication that have caused problems or misperceptions in the past. Sometimes, it is all about saying “I’m sorry” or having a new awareness that makes the past communication no longer applicable.

Regardless, you will want to remain calm and clear in all areas that may require those around you to feel your heart and the deeper intention of what you want to accomplish.

Everything this month is about changing out of the old and discovering a deeper “old” that is surfacing in a new and vitally alive way. This is a month of self-empowerment experienced through choosing to create profound and powerful anchors of calm resolve in the midst of the present storms that surround you. It is time to replenish your life force by discovering ways to retreat and cultivate quiet.

Safety is the key to being in a place of inner calm. You may notice that there is a place where you feel as if your tank is reaching the empty level. Sometimes you have to drop into a place of retreat in order to see that you have been burning the candle at both ends and you need to have a much-needed break to recharge your batteries. This month the gifts that you are seeking require you to not push but to accept. Permission comes from loving yourself more than the desire to accomplish an activity or goal.

When you push you can create resistance inside that does not allow for a full and deep interaction with your deepest self. When you are trying to access the higher vibrations it requires an inner calm.

The Jaguar energy is asking for you to move from a place of integrity and impeccability. You have behaviors that are no longer appropriate and your integrity can no longer live with the present expression of your essence. You will notice where you have abused authority or have judged another. It is time to step into a place of forgiveness to yourself and others and make the necessary corrections that keep what you are doing and your creation in balance with your spirit. You are stalking about inside your inner domain seeking that which has eluded you up until this moment. But with the power and intensity of a Jaguar, at the moment you find it you must leap upon it without hesitation. There are moments where the door is open and what you seek is right in front of you. If you decide you are unworthy you may hesitate and if you do that you will miss an opportunity that may not come around again.

This month there are places that you must be willing to go into alone. That does not mean you cannot have support but the choice will be yours and yours alone. This is how you discover your power and learn to have confidence in your own personal journey. Jaguar allows you to journey into the places of dreams and magic. These are places where others cannot follow you but where you will discover guidance along the pathways to your inner sanctum. You are being asked to deepen into what you already know and discover hidden doorways and treasures that you did not know existed when you first ventured into this place.

The Universe is conspiring to bring you something that you have been yearning to discover. It will be up to you to decide if you love yourself enough to allow it in. The messages are right in front of you. If you just slow down and take a moment to reflect you will see what you have been longing for is standing there with open arms ready to be received. You are worthy, you have always been worthy, and it is time to accept that as truth and step into your higher potential.
