This month is all about one thing: expansion, says “RockStar Shaman” Alyson Charles. The only trick? Avoiding self-sabotage. Here’s how to do that—plus the full energetic forecast for October, divined by Charles. (And don’t worry, there will be spirit animals!)

The expansion is real! Wow, have you been feeling the stretch, the growing pains and activation of so much of your new? Once we hit the Autumn Equinox and full moon last month we truly entered into a much more activated phase of energy, and you may have felt a distinct shift that marked a pivot point from a more slumbered, internal energy to one of more electricity and things suddenly happening. With this combination of expansion and activation, be compassionate with yourself and others as the beginning of this month can bring up more worries or overwhelm as our systems are acclimating to these changes!

And this brings us to our main theme for October: conscious awareness of resistance. Whenever we are growing in a big way, it can be infinitely fascinating to then be very consciously aware of how our unconscious comes in to try to hold us back—constricting tightly in order to stay where we are and hold on what we know.

So, as we are in this time of energy, movement, breaking through, and major expansion, I urge you to be extra awake and aware of how you may get in your own way or subconsciously sabotage the growth.
