Weekend Energy – August 8-9

In Energy Update by SonjaLeave a Comment

This weekend has some big energy in it as the moon moves through three very powerful I Ching Hexagrams: 51, Arousing; 42, Increase; and 3, Difficulty in the Beginning (or “Sprout,” my new favorite translation). “The Arousing” – where we are right now – is made up of two “Thunder” trigrams. For those of you familiar with Tarot, is a lot like the Tower card (which is also an influence this weekend). It’s big change, a shake up, a lot going on. It’s a burst of “doing”, yang energy. 🤓Other influences this weekend for those who enjoy the details: Moon’s …

Weekend Energy – August 1-2

In Energy Update by SonjaLeave a Comment

Today I’m going to tell you a story about a lovely lady, the Marrying Maiden, and the movie she’s staring in, right now. It’s not a short story, but it’s a good one. (And no, this isn’t about the Brady Bunch, though I suppose, it could be.) Today – or rather, right now – the moon is in Human Design Gate 54. The gates are originally based on the I Ching, and in this case, Hexagram 54 – “The Marrying Maiden.” DUDE. WTF Sonja? Yeah I know. Okay. This is gonna get boring for a hot hiccup so bear with …

Weekend Energy Forecast – July 25-26

In Energy Update, Uncategorized by SonjaLeave a Comment

The moon is connected to our feelings, our sense of meaning, our “why.” Not only does it impact who we are when we’re born, but it also has an impact on our day to day experience. These energies move through us like a background beat, and the same beat is there for all of us.​ We won’t all experience them in the same way – your chart, your Human Design authority and strategy, all impact how these energies might impact you.  Sometimes having access to this can help you execute your decisions more smoothly (more on this below). Sometimes, just …

Your Passion Is Not Your Job Title

In Podcast, Your Values by SonjaLeave a Comment

It’s an idea that has been imprinted on you since you were a child.  “What do you want to be when you grow up?”  How often do you think you heard that question? More than once? More than once a year? More?  From the time you were able to form complex sentences, people have been asking you what you want to be.  As though you aren’t “being” sufficiently already.  As though you are supposed to transform into something new when you become an adult.  And they would ask you as though you must certainly have an answer. It was rare …

Your Future is Hurting You Now

In Confidence and Courage, Podcast by SonjaLeave a Comment

Today, I want to talk to you about how your future is destroying your ability to make decisions in the present. … Just saying those words fucks me up a little bit, so I just want to take a moment to say it again so we are both clear on the topic today. Your future is destroying your ability to make decisions today. Once upon a time, there was a girl. That girl was me. I had a job that wasn’t terrible, but over time it drove me into the ground. I didn’t feel like myself there. I didn’t feel …

Why Goals Fail

In Podcast, Your Values by SonjaLeave a Comment

Every new moon, I take a little time to set intentions for the month. I like to base it on the star sign that the Moon is in, mostly because it’s fun – I also feel there is a synchronicity between astrology signs and the time of the year. A few days ago I was giving an online group session around setting intentions, and an excellent question came up, Why intentions and not goals. I want to offer a challenge. In this world where goals are idealized. Don’t set any. Don’t set any this month, don’t set any for the …

Eliminating Perfectionism

In Podcast by SonjaLeave a Comment

I love listening to the intro music as a way to warm up for these podcasts. So I’m sitting here with my headphones on, snapping along, thinking wow, my snaps sound great! And then I realize … I can’t hear my snaps at all, that’s the music. Womp woomp! Today I want to talk to you about a topic that’s near and dear to my heart: perfectionism.   It wasn’t until very recently that the idea was even floated that maybe “perfect” as a goal was not helpful, and more recently had the realization that shook my understanding of perfectionism to …
