Late summer is that sweet spot in the year when we see the fruits of our labour in full bloom and part of us is relieved we’ve done it!
If you’ve taken the Earth Rhythm Archetype Quiz, the archetype guiding the summer season is the Cosmic Magician.
✨ Energetic Theme
When looking at the plant kingdom, this is a time when the first harvest is in full swing.
To get to this point a lot of work and tending of your work, projects, and relationships has been done and a lot of your energy has been spent. It’s a space where you might be feeling like you need a break from ordinary life as your energetics need to be replenished.
Take this moment in time to slow down and replenish before the business of the fall harvest will demand more of your energy. You don’t want to enter into September tired and burn out by October.
You’ll need to explore how can the energy of commitment and responsibility not feel constricting but instead allows you to feel alive and free.
