The main theme for the month of November is PRESSURE.
This month we enter the labor that will birth our own transformation and change. And just as in actual childbirth, once the process begins, there is no going back. The pressure we feel is that of being in a container that has grown too small. It is time to face the unknown, our own fears and resistance, and move ourselves to the next level.
Everything this month will be pressurized. You will feel pressure from the outside as well as pressure from the inside. The image is that of a large balloon being inflated until the pressure of the hot air forces it to rise. We have been filling ourselves up with new dreams, new intentions and a commitment to balance, personal growth and change and now we are at that point where the pressure of our own needs and desires is pushing our container to a higher level of vibration. It is an exciting time but can also carry much anxiety and fear as we move into a place of the unknown. It is a big new world out there and we will be like chicks just having broken through their shells to emerge into a new environment.
This new environment is one of many dimensions that will provide for a much richer experience of life. There will be a more conscious connection to the astral world, the quantum field, frequencies of light and sound, and a fuller more multidimensional experience of the senses. This is the culmination of the artisan energy we have been working with this year, creating the next step in our evolution.
But growth is not easy. There are growing pains; there is irritation, fear of change, sometimes blame, lots of doubt and always some resistance. It is a tricky time where we will experience all sides of the creative coin. There will be incredible breakthroughs in ideas, perception, intuition, creativity, invention, realizations and personal growth. There will also be times of witnessing, grieving and allowing for the destruction and meltdown of old structures and limited containers as we move beyond our comfort level and expand into new territory.
The pressure coming from inside is our own higher self, our essence, pushing us to be bigger, to be more, to disengage from the past, to move out of our shell, and to break through the barrier of small and diminished experience into the vast ocean of possibility. The pressure can feel like dissatisfaction, confusion, impatience and irritation. This is our own inner desire and intention for change that is prodding and poking us to get on with it. The path is not yet clear. This month it is enough to work with being ready by allowing what is holding us back to fall apart. The big work will be to allow the fear and anxiety to dissolve and to move into a place of trust. Remember that theme from September?
The pressure coming from the outside is coming from the environment itself, the environment being anything you come into contact with. It could include all the people and all the containers that you have been operating all of your projects, work and life out of. Your environment acts as a mirror and will put pressure on you based on what you said you wanted. There is a saying, be careful what you ask for. This is certainly true for this time frame as your intentions and desires will be magnified and expanded. It is as if everything has grabbed the energy of Jupiter and filled itself with hot air and helium. There is tremendous pressure that has built up that can be used to take the whole planet to the next level of functioning.
We have created the opportunity to add a higher octave to our experience. We have no idea what this will look like and how it will affect the future. The task in the present is to be willing to use this pressurized energy to assist in the necessary dissolution of the containers that have become too small. The pressure of the times can also be an ally in helping you create the next step in your life.
How the month shows up
Watch for feeling cranky and irritated especially around what you think others expect of you. Watch for judgment and don’t take anything personally as others react to the pressure around them. Monitor the pressure you put on others and make sure you are always in integrity around what you are asking. Monitor the pressure you put on yourself and make sure it is in balance and in harmony with your highest goals. You may have to re-prioritize what is important especially if you have a lot on your plate.
Everyone will need a pressure release valve this month. For many of you it will be physical activity, and for some it will be something creative you do for yourself; art, music, cooking, gardening etc. It will also be crucial to build in some alone time into your busy lives for assimilation and integration of the changes that will be occurring in bursts this month.
There is an opportunity to expand your container, step into a bigger dream and move beyond what you thought you could ever handle in this life. Choosing to move forward no matter how anxious the unknown makes you feel is always better than remaining in the pressure of a container that is too small.
The containers of relationships are always interesting ones in how they give us the greatest lessons and provide the greatest growth. This month all relationships will be influenced by the pressure of the month and will behave according to what the pressure is demanding. Some will move towards completion, some will move towards commitment, some will move in different directions, some will part ways, some will rekindle important aspects and some will self destruct.
It is important to pay attention to what is happening in your relationships and not just to ignore the signs of discontent or attraction. Some women will feel the pressure of their internal childbearing clocks and all of us will feel the pressure of moving ahead with whatever we are here to do on this earth. If our life task work needs to be modified or changed or evolved, we will be feeling the pressure to get on with it. There is a sense of needing to call in all of our support and to make sure that all of our relationships are providing what we need and not becoming energy leaks. There is an opportunity to complete karma, forgive ourselves and others, and to push through the membrane of debt into an experience of greater cooperation, partnership and collaboration.
The environment provides the mirror for us in these times. Big pressure systems, highs and lows, will bring big weather systems, some beyond what we have experienced before. Big pressure brings big power and it is empowering to take advantage of the power in big pressure instead of hiding from it in fear.
Your personal environment will produce pressure both from the inside and from the outside. Pressure from the inside will hound you to continue clearing out the old and to pay attention to your spaces to make sure they are supporting change and expansion. The pressure from the outside will come if you ignore your intuition and do not take your own internal hints. They may come in the form of imposed changes such as a system break down forcing you to improve things. If this happens do not get irritated. It is what it is, fix it, improve it and move on.
Completions are important in these times and completing projects where results can be harvested and loose ends tied up will remove some of the mental pressure you may feel when things are incomplete. So complete what you can so you can make space for something else.
The pressure here will be related to deadlines, time, performance, completions and beginnings. Be aware of imposing unnecessary pressure especially if it is coming from an old pattern. Observe where change needs to happen to encompass a new way of thinking about how your projects and partnerships are supported. It is becoming clearer and clearer that we cannot go about it alone and that the structure of our accomplishments needs a new architecture that includes more trust in spirit that the necessary help, seen and unseen, will always be there for us.
We are moving from a linear way of thinking about how things are done to a multidimensional experience of creating and manifesting from the quantum field. This process is not yet complete but we feel the pressure to be moving in that direction. It does require trust and it does require not believing the limiting thoughts our minds come up with about what is possible and what is not.
It is a good time to begin projects and an even better time to complete projects. Anything you begin should be done with a strong intention but a “don’t know mind”. Follow the pressure of your own intuition and inner desires. Be creative, courageous and innovative. Try new things, take a few risks and go for it. Since this time frame includes the experience of higher centers, inspiration is a key to any success.
DATES AND TIME FRAMES
November 1-7: You are feeling the pressure of what is on your plate and it may feel like too much. Practice seeing this pressure as made much worse by your own worry and mental judgment. Observe that when you let go and trust that it will all work out, how the feeling of pressure diminishes. Practice being very present and doing what is in front of you instead of worrying about what you may have to do tomorrow. Often the pressure felt is about something that has not happened yet and the mind’s definition of how difficult it is going to be or how you wont have time, energy or support.
When you feel the burden of pressure taking you down into negativity or worry, refocus on beauty, gratitude and love and anything else that inspires you.
November 8-15: The theme for this time frame is discernment. You have an idea and lots of intuition about what pressure is appropriate and what pressure is not. This is the time to sort through the different pressures in your life and prioritize what is truly important. If you are feeling a pressure being imposed on you by someone else’s fear or projection, don’t take it personally. You have the opportunity to forgive it and neutralize its influence on you.
Sift through the demands of others and set new boundaries and rules about where you are willing to engage and where you need to cut ties. This may be a cranky time for relationships as everyone is vying for being heard and being supported. Dependency and dysfunction may surface as aspects of relationships that spur necessary changes.
November 11: The New Moon is Wednesday November 11, at 10:48 AM MST, Mountain Standard Time. Watch for cranky irritation around any pressure you feel from others, yourself or your environment. Take a moment around this new moon for yourself and focus on something that needs completion. Cranky energy can always be transformed into a fiery inspiration that fuels action. Be physically active today and do something physical that expands your space, clears something out and provides you with an opportunity to take action towards something you desire.
November 16-22: This time frame is marked by pressure coming from the inside. You will be tested as to your priorities and your true intentions. If something is not authentic it will be mirrored back to you in a way that you will not able to ignore. You will feel pressured by yourself to make sure you are on the right track. There is a feeling of urgency about making sure you are doing what you want to be doing, being with those you wish to be with, and in an environment that is compatible and supportive to that. If you have been in a container of a relationship, work, home, career or otherwise, that is too small, you will definitely feel pressure to do something about breaking through beyond those limitations.
This is also a time when your spiritual evolution is demanding some attention. If you are doing your practices you will feel irritated and pressured. It is important to have something of a daily practice for putting the pressure into perspective as well as to support the expansion of your container.
November 23-30: We have arrived at the time when the labor is in full swing and there is nowhere to go but through the birth canal. The other side is a new landscape and potential. It is a higher centered time frame, a bit challenging for the personality but with its own gifts of heightened perceptions, deeper essence connections, and greater intuition. You may experience feeling alien in your own world and that is a good thing. Acknowledge anything that feels different and remember to stay in gratitude, to focus on beauty and to embrace all that is new or potentially new in your life.
November 25: The Full Moon is Wednesday, November 25 at 3:45 PM MST, Mountain Standard Time. This is a time for quiet celebration, acceptance of change, and making choices. If you have been ambivalent or in resistance around certain issues that require a choice, this would be a good time to finally make that choice. If you have been afraid to take the step out of your limited container, you feel the pressure to do so and now would be the time.
