Zodiac for Daily Goals to Inspire Intuition 

Moon Zodiac for daily personal goal setting 

The moon affects changes as it passes through the zodiac constellations that Astrologists believe influences our life.  Its gravitational pull makes it the second strongest influence after the sun and Astrologers use the path of the moon as a guide to explore human personality and activities.   

Scroll down under Astrological signs for 3 step exercise to integrate these signs into daily use and to read more on why they are an effective integration tool that can support understanding the labyrinth of your mind and those of others to improve relationships.

 


Renee began exploring the moons influence on the essence of human emotions and their reactions to certain situations as a way to broaden the perspective of what her students/clients were learning to lighten up the process of inner change.  The moon can influence human creativity, imagination and ability to attract other people and it is a great guide for cutting through the constructs of black and white (right and wrong) thinking that lacks mindfulness, understanding and empathy.  This personal journey into the labyrinth of ones mind can create an emphatic understanding into the labyrinth of another’s mind.


Moon Zodiac daily goal exercise

to inspire intuition

A daily 3 step exercise Renee recommends as a template for increasing a mindful connection between emotional wellness and ones focus of attention.  A shift in ones focus of attention can increase understanding, clarity and intuition and reduce destructive reactions inside oneself or with others.  Actions can become mindful and be constructive versus destructive.  Try these 3 steps as a daily exercise using the 12 astrological moon signs as a guide.

  1. Start by reading the daily zodiac sign influence and choose up to 3 actions for the day.  This can be done in the morning, or evening before.  (If it is done the evening before you may be pleasantly surprised by the difference in your motivation upon rising.)
  2. As you take actions in the day pause a moment before you check it off your mental to do list.  Begin to notice any sensations that you may have and remember to make a mental note of it.
  3. At the end of the day stop to check in to your daily action plan. Reflect upon the feelings of celebration for completed tasks or the feelings of regret for uncompleted ones.
    1. Notice the felt sense differences between the two; celebrations and regrets.
    2. Try to cut through any stories you are telling yourself that try to justify why you did or didn’t complete your task.  Instead,  “*Focus your attention on what your emotions are and begin to observe what you are feeling instead of reacting to them.” 
    3. Be constructive and put names to your emotions. Start replacing destructive judgments.  This builds a mental-emotional feelings vocabulary that is an essential to a  mindful-heart connection in Dr. Marshall Rosenberg’s model of Nonviolent Communication.
 *This is one missing step in our cultural social emotional education.  However it is never too late to learn how to become more mentally and emotionally resilient and flexible.

Learning  to be in your feelings is the start of retraining your mind to be curious about them.

The next step is to identify the root cause of the feelings inside that you are beginning to name and become more comfort with exploring the environment they are creating from which you act from.  To learn more on how to make this connection consider an upcoming workshop with Renee or an on-going dialogue series.  Go to her calendar or list of communication workshops for more information, or connect with her for a personal one on one for those difficult events.

Sand Labyrinth @ @yyj’s Gonzales Beach for Fall Equinox ’18

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP

Last night we celebrated an evening labyrinth under the growing moon at Gonzales Beach.  It was to acknowledge and celebrate the start of fall and the equinox.  The sand labyrinth was drawn by Maria Vanderham and Renee Lindstrom and decorated by those attending.  Shells, seaweed, drift wood large and small, candles, sand castle and personal items of meaning.

It was a playful and meaningful way to enjoy an evening and to acknowledge that it is the start of sowing seeds of intention for 2019.

What seeds do you want to sow for 2019? Fall is not only the harvest, its time to sow.

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP

Did you know that fall is the best time to set your intention for 2019?  If you organize your goals according to natures cycle, fall is the time to sow seeds and winter is the time to let them gather the nutrients they need to sprout the following spring.  Winter is not the time to plant seeds?  Unfortunately the goal setting habits are out of sync with natures rhythm.  We have been taught to wait until after Winter Solstice to set our intentions for the coming year and to have a high expectation for achieving them immediately.  There is no grace period for consideration or integration sometimes leading to self-criticism and depression.

What if you spent time now to consider your wishes for the coming season and give yourself time to refine them before you commit.  Once you begin considering your dream, you begin to make room for them in your lifestyle without evening thinking about it.  Making room for your dreams is actually a pattern of creating new habits.  It’s not declaration!

So with this in mind here is a reminder of the nine life areas you may wish to consider as you begin reflecting to have balance.  These are; wealth, fame, relationship, ancestors (1st family), health, creativity, knowledge, career and helpful people.

Fame is what you want to be recognized for
Helpful people are support in the community
Career is more than work, it include the essence of what you are known for in this life

Did you know goals start out as Intentions?  
 
Your intentions for 2019 are not your goals. Your goals are what you create to achieve your intention.  An example of this is a vision board.  If your create a vision board this represents your intention.  However if you don’t do anything different to manifest your dreams, they may not emerge.  If you haven’t made room for your dreams they may not fit into your life easily.
Manifesting your intention is just like your clothes closet.  If it’s too full nothing new can go in it.    However if you clear the clutter it makes room for something new to enter.

Recently I have hosted a circle for women over 50 to explore finding love.  We began with a vision board exploring the above nine life areas and what that means in finding a relationship.  Not only have we been looking at making room in our life for a lover and how to maintain balance in these areas, we are considering if we are living our best life prior to manifesting a partner.  After all, if we are not living it, we won’t attract it.

So whether you are looking for love or wanting social change in other areas you too can begin to focus on your intention which is simply another way of saying, becoming conscious to what is meaningful to you.  Goals are then what you follow-up with!

n easy way with turning intention into goals is an 8 step pattern following the lunar calendar.  Replace making goals the night before and then beating yourself up for not being accountable, explore a way of integrating intention into goals that are doable.  Read more on these steps.
