Within you is a wildness that is attempting to be seen. It is attempting to rip apart your old world to show you a new and vibrantly alive potential that was always your birthright. What will that look like? That is up to you.

This is a month to look deeply into the patterns and strategies that have been hiding you from some truth. The sword of truth is cutting away the dead wood and pruning your tree, so you can blossom more vibrantly. When you prune a tree, that tree may not at first produce so much fruit. But it strengthens the tree and increases capacity over time.

This month you are being asked to make decisions that serve you over the long haul, knowing full well that you are not going to reap the benefits right now. There is conflict in the manifestation right now as you work through the dissonance that has been eating away at your energy and reserves. Pull back and wait until you have clarity.

The controls you believed you had now seem like moonbeams in your hand. No matter how attached you are or how well it worked before, let go of what is not working.

You are in a place of controlled growth, being coaxed to move in a particular way and direction. It may feel unnatural, inauthentic. But you are being molded and shaped into a place that you never perceived of as important. You are becoming something very different from what your soul has expressed up to this point.

Don’t worry. It is going to be okay. Eventually this will make sense. It is just that, right now, it is out of alignment with your former self. But you did not come here to maintain the status quo. You came to be magnificent. However, comfort and repetition lulled your powerful potential to sleep.

You are struggling to awaken. Yes, it’s so much easier to fall back into the numbness of the old dream. But something is calling to you. Now is the time for you to be and do what you are really here for.

The Divine Feminine is poking at you to listen to her, hear her, and hear to the calls from the earth. Are you willing to surrender to the Divine? Are you willing to allow her to show you what you forgot you carry as a great gift? You are being asked to help ignite a fire that will tear down the world of deception and suffering.
