This is a tricky month where we can be challenged at every turn. Impatience is not our friend and mindfulness is a necessary practice for survival of these times. We will need to pay special attention to what we say, how we act, and what we think. We will need to have patience to accept and adapt when things do not go as planned. We will need to strive for balance around the fiery action that threatens to take us down into exhaustion, overwork and poor health.
