This week, I’ve got my head down, and I’m working.

Articles, client work, working on the move.

All I can do is hold my lines and keep moving forward.

There are things that must happen this week.

It is up to me to MAKE them happen.

I’m meeting this week with determination.

What’s your intent for the week?

Mon. Feb. 1, 2021: Intent for the Week — Fresh Possibilities

image courtesy of Nico Wall via pixabay.com

Today is Imbolc Eve. Tomorrow is Imbolc, the time of things stirring under the surface, preparing to come forth.

My intent for the week is to listen to what is around me. Listen to what is under the words, feel what’s under the actions. The Mercury Retrograde complicates it, but by listening to what is around me, and listening to my own gut reactions, I hope to find fresh possibilities for this next chapter of my life.

What do you feel stirring under the surface?

Mon. Jan. 25, 2021: Intent for the Week — Preparing for Mercury Retrograde

image courtesy of Free Photos via pixabay.com

These are the last few days of no retrogrades before Mercury goes retrograde on the 30th. That’s my least favorite retrograde, although I plan to use this one to resolve issues that need attention.

I’m backing up my work, getting things organized, checking security on passwords, keeping my fingers crossed the car keeps running.

Mercury Retrograde is a terrible time to purchase big ticket items or electronics, or to sign contracts, so I’m hoping I won’t be in a position where any of THAT comes up. It’s a great time for hitting thrift shops or yard sales and finding great deals, but I’m not going out amongst people, so that’s out.

I’m going to try to be as quiet as possible (messy communications are more likely). I’m not traveling (travel delays are often a part of it).

I just want to get through it with minimum damage, and come out of it with a better idea of where we’re moving.

I’m going to do as much preparation, especially psychologically as possible, so I have the resources to deal with what’s bound to be thrown at me.

How are you preparing for the retrograde?

Mon. Jan. 18, 2021: Intent for the Week — Personal Stability

This week has the potential to be bloody and violent, on both physical and emotional levels.

I plan to work on personal stability within the chaos.

I’ve already been called selfish for making choices to protect those boundaries. I choose to still hold them.

Stay safe, friends.

Mon. Jan. 4: Intent for the Week — Start the Year Gently

Instead of barreling into the new year, as is my normal way, I am tip-toeing in, rather gently this year. I want to be gentle with both myself and others (although that will not stop me from working for justice).

Gentle, quiet, soft — those are words I will use as my mantra this week, in order to be kind to myself and others.

What’s your intent for this week?

Mon. Dec. 28, 2020: Intent for the Week — Breathe

I hope you had a lovely, peaceful, happy weekend.

This week, between the end of one year, and the start of new year (which we all NEED to be a better one on oh, so many levels), I intend to take the time to breathe.

Not fret, not punish myself. I will push away those who do not wish me well, in preparation for removing them permanently from my life. I will attempt to do so with compassion.

I want and need quiet, reflective time.

What is your intent for this week?

Mon. Dec. 7, 2020: Intent for the Week — Isolation

I’m in isolation this week, in preparation for my surgery.

I’ll be working remotely, but also working at the mental and physical preparations for Friday, and then taking the weekend to recover.

What are you working on this week?

Mon. Nov. 30, 2020: Intent for the Week — Scheduling

The last day of November, sliding into the final month of the year.

Neptune went direct on Saturday; now we only have one retrograde (Uranus) to deal with for the next few weeks.

This week is about scheduling. On Tuesday, I find out if next week’s surgery goes forward, or if it’s being postponed due to the rising COVID numbers.

Either way requires a lot of planning.

I’ve pushed to get everything holiday done before the surgery. I have no idea how fast I will bounce back, or if the is bad news after it. I’m moving ahead as though it is going forward, but if it’s postponed, quite a bit is readjusted.

Scheduling and flexibility seem to be in opposition, but I have to hold them in balance, both this week and next.

What is your intent for the week?

Mon. Nov. 30, 2020: Intent for the Week — Prep

The overseas cards and packages are done and mailed.

The domestic cards and packages will be mailed latest by tomorrow morning.

My gift shopping is done.

My intent this week is all about prep.

I need to finish my holiday decorating.

I need to start my holiday baking. I will then need to pack, quarantine, then deliver or send the cookie tins.

I need to get the car inspected.

I need to promote the holiday shorts as they go live, and promote TRINITY OF TEASERS.

I need to prep for next week’s surgery.

This week is about prep, mental and physical.\

What’s your intention for the week?

Mon. Nov. 23, 2020: Intent for the Week — Gratitude

This week, I am going to try to temper my anger and remember that for which I am grateful.

I want to say home as much as possible, focus on the holiday, and then start the winter holiday decorating.

I realized, in the years I’ve been traveling to Maine for the holiday, I never got to actually rest.

I would prepare the Wednesday night meal ahead of time, and bring it up (feeding anywhere from 6-12, after driving from wherever I was to Maine).

I helped cook all day on Thursday.

I helped clean up all day on Thursday.

I drove back to wherever I was living on Friday.

I never had any time to rest.

Part of this holiday, staying home, will be rest, even though I’m cooking.

Gratitude.

And rest.

What’s on this week’s agenda for you?

Mon. Nov. 16: Intent for the Week — Move Forward

This is a lovely photo above, and I prefer horses to people, so that’s what I chose for the week’s inspiration.

Mercury and Mars are both direct, so some of our biggest obstacles are out of the way.

In spite of the pandemic, in spite of the need to stay at home, I have a need to get certain elements into play and move forward. I intend to do them remotely and safely, but enough faffing around already. It needs to happen.

This week is about taking the steps to move forward, while following health and safety protocols, not putting myself or anyone else at risk.

How’s your week starting?

Mon. Nov. 9, 2020: Intent for the Week — Breathe

Sorry this posted so late. I don’t understand why the scheduling tool isn’t working on Mondays.

Last week was stressful, we had some joy this weekend; we’re moving into a rough period for the next few months.

I have some stressors bearing down on me this week.

So, whenever possible, I am going to take even a moment or two, and just breathe.

Follow my breath.

Know that those who are causing my stress are only passing through my life, because I CHOOSE not to let them stay.

Just breathe.

How’s your week starting?
