Sometimes in the act of creating our lives it looks like a big chaotic mess. Other times we feel that our actions on what we add and what we take out are very deliberate. And then there are those times where you feel like nothing is happening.

I read tarot cards for others and for myself for personal development and insight. It’s super interesting for me to look at what yearly cycle I’m in (according to the numerology of the Major Arcana). It can be helpful in learning how to navigate and plan as I go through the year. Last year was a Chariot year and this year is an Adjustment year for me.

Chariot years are all about movement while keeping your calm center. That was definitely true for me. I took lots of actions to expand my growth and potential both personally and in my business. This year is an Adjustment year-it’s about bringing in all that you activated the previous year in practical real ways in your daily life. All while coming back to balance and integrating the new skills and ways of being.

This can come down to the subtle, as in how I think about things, how I communicate or in concrete ways as in what habits to release and which ones to nourish.

 
The Adjustment year is one of fine tuning. A pinch of this- a bit more of that or just take that out. The sometimes overwhelming chaos of the Chariot year is coming into wholeness and form. I can see what it is all distilling down to and what actions to take to fully realize the new insights, actions and learning.

 
This mix (creation) of your life is always up to your intentions, actions and desires. Yes, even in the chaos, especially then. Sometimes when everything is up in the air or coming straight at you- is when you can make powerful and defining choices that can really change your trajectory.
What’s important to remember is to come back to your sacred center and listen to your heart. From this space take a look at the big picture and then make an inspired choice. Feel that it is right (or a least a step in that direction) inside. Get as much clarity as you can.
Often times you may not know what the best next step is.  Maybe it is time to wait-to integrate and let things clarify before you take that next step. Let it ferment. Then add that little pinch to the creation of your life and watch the beauty of your luscious life grow.
So this is where I’m at this year, keeping in balance and integrating just a pinch at a time.

Blessings & light, di
