Potential - MONTH - 8
(To find the specific directional influence of any Month in the Medicine Way, start counting clockwise around the Sacred Circle beginning with 1 in the South then 2 in the West and so forth, until one finds the location of the month in question.)
As the East is the place of Share and Review as well as Reflection these will be the ongoing influences for this month together with a consciousness and awareness towards Resources. The East is the Flowering time of the tree and similarly August is the time when the harvest is usually in full swing in the northern hemisphere. It is little wonder or surprise that this combination of Medicines and awareness towards resources of this eighth month tend to make one more conservative as well as want to prepare and plan for the colder season to come. Just as in the storing up of firewood and gathering of nuts and berries of our ancestors in tribal times, there will be an undercurrent of an awareness to resource needs and desire to procure more during this period. While the summer season started with a more care free attitude in the West, now the energy seems to shift almost 180 degrees towards thrift and caution.
While certain projects might be started this month, more success will be resulted more easily in applying more of one's efforts towards tying up loose ends of projects and issues that have been already started or are ongoing. As the East and West are places of Balance as well one will find oneself considering one's own condition of Balance especially as relates relationships and outside influences. This is a month to finish up ongoing projects and tasks of the past and to be considering all of one's Life conditions and desires as well as reviewing one's actions and choices in the recent past. This also is a period to Spend Some Time Alone in Reflection, but also Contact Family and Friends that have been somewhat estranged as well as clearing out old things that are no longer of use. This is also and excellent month for Planning New Beginnings such as career, and so forth and sowing the seeds of one's desires to the Winds of Fortune and Change. However, this is also a month to be patient, as this is Not a month to make big changes or starts, but Plan for those that one wishes to instigate Next month.
Many more Violent climatic shifts will be experienced this month as well as shifts in consciousness towards what is Real, Honest, and more permanent. This is also an excellent time for travel and the meeting of old friends and making of new relationships. This is also a perfect time to clean the closet of one's past so as to make room for more pleasure and fruition in the Future. This is a time to do one's own part in making things better for those to come as well by making one's voice heard and taking the initiative to stop the waste and mismanagement of resources that is the current pattern of the prevalent culture.
More of the evidence of Mother Earth experiencing a Shift will occur at this time and continue to be felt and realized. This is a time to prepare for that which is soon to come and is unexpected by most. How? Do all that one can to ensure in the continuance and wellbeing of All things, after all that is our responsibility and ability and hence greatest Resource in Self.
The Color of this month is Brown which is that of Fertility and Fruition, and the Animal Spirit is that of the Dolphin which is about Perception, Caretaking, Nurturing, and Playfulness. The Plant Spirit is that of the Hyssop with a Medicine of That is That or Completeness or Self-sufficiency. The Mineral Spirit is that of Jasper which has great Pot Stirring Medicine as well as that of Will. The Consciousness or Word for the month is Poh-Toah or Completeness and the Sound for the month is Kiaah.
This is the Month to:
forth in Respectfulness and Thanksgiving,
One's own measure of Support, Participation, and Share,
For the Wellbeing of the All in the present and Future.
Thought of the Month:
One can see the good or bad in any condition or thing,
As these are just two facets of One’s Perspective of the same thing.
Therefore, It is better to seek not to judge as good or bad,
But to Embrace so as to know and Understand completely any of a thing.
So, I pray that your path of this Month of August be full of:
Fulfillment, Openness, Love, and Joy!
