March 2013 -Time To Clear Energy Leaks and Get Prepared!

personal growthIn this monthly forecast, you’ll find tips to boost your personal growth and tips to get the most out of this month!

The primary theme for March is MOVEMENT.  March is a split personality month, with the first couple of weeks giving us more of February’s watery course. During this time, watch for continued unexpected emotional debris surfacing from the depths. It may seem like nothing is moving and the surface is quiet, but there is a lot going on underneath. We have called this time period “Roll With the Punches”.

Mid month, the underwater movement comes to the surface as the storm gathers and unleashes its energy in full force much like a sprinter at the Olympics. This sprinter has set goals, dreamed, trained and remained very focused to get where they are and this is the time to put it all together. We are calling this time frame “Ready, Set, GO!”

During the first part of the month it may seem like not much is active as the movement is subtle, unfocused and subconscious. Beware of letting down your guard as we are still in the time of unpredictability. Earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, strong tides, storms and floods are not always apparent until they actually unleash their power. Remember not to underestimate what goes on beneath the surface and pay attention to the subtle (or not so subtle) signs. Even if you spend a lot of time feeling “spaced out”, just know that there is lots going on that you may not be consciously aware of.

This is a good time to continue to clear out the old. Your goals and intentions that were set at the end of 2012 at the time of the solstice put certain things into motion. All the emotional clearing, dissolving of old patterns, forgiveness, acceptance and flexibility are all very necessary for personal growth AND for the preparation for what hits us later this month. Even Mercury in retrograde has taught us valuable lessons in paying attention to what is present and in front of instead of impatiently surging ahead before the timing is right.

One of the most important things to do during this time of preparation is to differentiate between what is yours and what belongs to someone else. Expectations, judgments, thought forms, dreams, plans, disappointments and reactions all need to be scrutinized and sorted appropriately. You do not want to be going into the later part of the month with any energy that is not completely yours. This is the time to evaluate and clean house of all energy leaks so that when the action hits, you are ready to go without distraction.

Another important reminder is to stay present and wait for right timing. Don’t try and anticipate the movement but pay close attention so you can ride the wave like a good surfer. If you are not distracted and concerned with other people’s energy, you will instinctively know when the timing is right and be able to make your move without any extra effort.

Protection is also highly recommended during this time. Some of you work daily with the concept of protection but for those of you who are not in the habit, it would be advisable to start a practice of protection for yourself energetically. You can do this through visualization or using a protective smoke such as sage or even placing stones that are good for protection around your immediate environment. Working with protection will help you protect your own individual process from energy leaks and the attention points of others as well as protect you from strong energetic blasts that may come at you from others once we move into the highly action oriented time later this month.

The reason we named the first part of the monthRoll With the Punches” is to address the part of it that feels like being rolled around in a wave of water. No matter how hard you try, you may not be able to clearly see which way is up and which way is down. Anyone who has ever been caught in a wave knows it does not help to fight. The only way out is through surrender or “rolling with it”. The waves in this case are the surprising ways that energy and events will be flowing in and out of your life, washing some things away and bringing you others that were quite unexpected. If you resist, it will not go well. So surrender and “roll with the punches and you will have a much easier time and perhaps even end up in a better place than before.

The second part of the month called “ready, set, GO” pretty much says it all. You better be prepared and preparedness is 30% eliminating what’s in the way, 30% being clear about what you want, and the rest taking action and trusting the support behind you. This could be a phenomenal time of manifesting (finally) what you have been hoping and hoping for. To insure success, you must eliminate all mixed messages to spirit that indicate you are not ready, or you are afraid, or you are uncertain, or you don’t believe it could happen, or you don’t think you deserve it, or that you really don’t want it because then others won’t love you, and a variety of other mixed messages.

It is also important that your actions match your intentions. Don’t ask for something if you are not really willing to accept the consequence of having it happen. Be VERY careful what you ask for at this time because you will probably get it.

So be ready. Have all your ducks in a row, your closets cleaned, your plumbing working. Be set and clear about what you want. Make sure its what YOU want. And GO. Take action, say yes and go for it. If you are not focused during the second part of the month you could be sideswiped by big waves of energy coming at you from the wrong direction when you are not paying attention. So pay attention, be directive, be proactive, be focused, and take action. Only go straight!

How the month shows up:


This is one of the best times to finalize “cleaning house” of old subconscious debris as well as eliminating old behaviors and really feeling like you can have a new lease on life as well as new opportunities to have exactly what you want.  To reap the benefits of personal growth, you will need to spend time on inner work. Your discipline this month will be to stay focused and stick with what you put out there. It is an opportunity to show up in a new way, to stretch your wings and to feel a new sense of power, security and ability to create.

Watch for the self-deprecation that tells you that the good things in life are for “someone else”. Make a choice as to which voice you listen to. This is your time. If you do not take it, someone else will. There is an aggressive nature to the last part of this month that can either be a high octane fuel for your intentions or it can blast you into negativity. The heat of this energetic fuel is intense so it is up to you to decide how to use it. Your experiences will either be intensely wonderful or intensely difficult or maybe even a bit of both.


Good communication is essential during these watery times especially during the first part of the month. It is good practice to communicate clearly what you want, what you expect and what you are asking for. With relationships, this is not a good time to assume the other person will be able to guess what you are thinking, what you want, or what you need.
There is too much miscommunication in relationships and this time frame gives us the opportunity to set the communication piece on the right track.

Fear of rejection or rejecting, avoiding conflict, fear of loss and fear of reaction all play a part in avoiding good communication. If relationships are to take advantage of the coming time where there is great movement forward and the synergy of partnership will be able to provide an exquisite fuel to manifesting dreams, clear communication must be mastered. Don’t wait for the other to make the first move. That is not the position of power. Say what you want and communicate clearly.
