Your August spirit animal + energy horoscope: the patient power of the ant!
“RockStar Shaman” Alyson Charles is here with her energy forecast for August—and a spirit animal that will help you get your fall mojo going way before Labor Day. Here’s everything you need to know about the ant, and why its medicine is the perfect tonic for our times.
We are exiting out of July, a month that brought much fiery energy—the kind that, if you didn’t watch it and weren’t extra mindful, may have caused some arguments and situations that were quite intense or tumultuous. But through it all, these frictions were here serving us to initiate much-need realizations and change, creating the sparks that ignite transformation.
The energies of August now beckon us to stay very strong, grounded, and clear, to continue to step forward with any changes we implemented recently. Be anchored in your choices and do not retreat back to old patterns and ways.
The spirit animal who you can call upon to keep you persevering is the ant. Ant medicine is so divine, reminding us that mastery of patience in key areas of your life is everything.
You are at a pivotal moment in life right now, a time where you are literally ripping away from, and pivoting out from, old ways that previously held you back—and kept you playing small and bringing toxic situations or people into your life.
Keep plunging forward into your new path and new ways of behaving, and be consistent with your change. Don’t let the old, more “known” or more comfortable (simply because it’s how you did things for so long) sneakily pull you backwards. Stay strong and optimistic, knowing there is a much-enhanced way of living, feeling, and functioning that comes with the entirely new ways of doing things that you are bravely birthing. And with that, your season of stepping into long-awaited prayers being answered is coming!
The spirit animal who you can call upon to keep you persevering is the ant. Ant medicine is so divine, reminding us that mastery of patience in key areas of your life is everything—that living patiently can be ideal, transcendental, and most exalted. Think about it: In our culture of rushing and instant gratification, being patient is mastering one of the biggest aspects of life.
If you can do this, and remain in a blissful, sublime state—moving forward patiently in insistence of your goals in total trust—you are truly winning at life! You can enjoy
