Our sun has just past the marker and we have now entered the Yin of the year and it is the perfect time to do a review. Here are some questions to ask yourself as you plans for the next season:
As you look back over the past six months what has happened in your life? What are some of the results you have achieved with your plans? The yin of the year is considered the feminine aspect according to Chinese astrology. Yin is the dark half of the yin and yang symbol. It means the shady place, and it is cold, wet, and yielding. But yet, there is always a bit of yang in the yin, and a bit of yin in the yang so always look for the balance as you review.
Review what you have achieved since the Winter Solstice.
What has gone well? Take a look at your plans and see how they manifested. Look at all the areas of your life that you feel good about and are happy with the way they are proceeding.
How will I celebrate my outer achievements? Did you take the time to celebrate the steps along the way? Sometimes when you look at the progress you have made in your attempts at achieving helps you to feel better about results that are yet complete.
Who has helped me and how can I show my gratitude to them? Recognize the people in your life who have supported you along the way.
Which seeds have failed to germinate and how would I do things differently to ensure success next time? See the gift in seeming failures as these are the gifts to show you a better way.
Your Angel Guidance is to plan what you want to incubate in the yin phase of the year:
What do I wish to encourage in my life over the next half of the year? Make some plans and write them down so during the winter solstice you can do a review and see the results more clearly.
What do I want to nurture and develop in myself over the coming months?
What's important to me? Take a really deep look and be sure that the dreams you are holding for yourself are yours. Oftentimes we do things out of tradition or obligation and it is time to do things that are important to you.
Which projects do I want to prioritize? Pick a few things that are most important to you. Think about smaller projects and bigger ones, and then work on both. The smaller projects offer faster rewards to help keep you motivated for the bigger ones.
What do I want to harvest and what will bear fruit? Take a look at your projects and see which ones are working and which ones aren't. This is the time to adjust the ones that are not working for you or try something different. The solstice is the perfect time to renew your commitments as well.
Tons of love, Sharon and the angels xoxox
