DAILY POWER ANIMAL
Lizard spirit | Dream bigger.
Are you dreaming a dream that’s big enough? If Lizard has appeared before you today, the gauntlet has been thrown down, the challenge made. Stop hiding your light beneath a rock—be willing to be bigger than life, to dream bigger than your imagination, to throw caution to the wind, and aim for the target you’ve spent a lifetime avoiding.
Lizards are colorful, stealthy, adaptive, intelligent, and creative animals. They are not afraid to sacrifice parts of themselves for a great cause. Ressurection and rebirth are only two things they are associated with in different parts of the world. The lizard spirit knows how to adapt to any situation. It changes its skin and is willing to go to great lengths to survive and thrive. Of course, that is because it instinctively knows that it can bring anything it wants to this world. That is why it is not afraid to lose a tail – that is a small price to pay for its goals. It is remarkably goal-oriented and can change its appearance, speed, and overall personality to fit the situation.
You can wait and create the perfect plan and will do everything in your power to execute it with precision. That is highly valued, but what steals the show is your ability to calculate risks and to know what and when to let go of. Those are qualities of a true leader – whether you have them or are currently developing them – your spirit guide is here to help.
Here are some facts about them that may surprise you and help you see the whole picture of their character. Most lizards don’t need to live near water, can survive with three meals a year, can regrow parts of their body, change color, and look in different directions – but since they are cold-blooded – can’t survive in cold temperatures. In other words, there are very few conditions that they can’t adjust to. We can learn from these diverse animals to stay focused on one goal. The other quality they can provoke in us is – to boldly change ourselves according to our surroundings. Lizards are associated with light, magic, resurrection, warmth, and rebirth. The lizard – evolutionary speaking – has mainly lived in warmer areas. It embodies the Element Earth – it is resilient, goal-oriented, stable, protective, intelligent, and adaptive. The lizard spirit will inspire you to find these qualities in yourself. It will help you become focused, stable, and resilient. Being so resourceful that you can adapt to any situation is an admirable trait. This spirit will help you stay on your way and achieve all of your goals.
The Spirit Lizard will help you become resilient for your goals yet adaptive on the way. It’s advisable to stay focused on what you truly desire in life. However, the means of achieving it should be adaptive. It’s impossible to predict every movement or decision that will happen around you. However, when you have a set of goals – how you get there should change depending on the circumstances. This spirit guide knows the importance of standing your ground and fleeing – it is a master planner. Lizards know how to make well-calculated decisions, and how to adjust their behavior accordingly so that they can execute their plan flawlessly. You will become inspired to live a life led by a dream. Nothing else will be of the same importance as the goals you have set for yourself. You will become the master of your own life, you will be able to plan events with precision, and follow the steps to success. Undoubtedly, this level of professionalism and idealism comes at a cost. It will be necessary for you to learn how to balance the wants and needs of others and your goals. Sometimes you may need to make personal sacrifices with your plans for the people important to you. The Spirit Lizard will guide you in setting your priorities straight. It will help you organize your life and stay on track with your tasks – while remaining open to daily changes.

JANUARY 2023 LUNAR CALENDAR
1/6/2023 FULL WOLF MOON IN CANCER: Your feeling of safety is now related to your home, family, and similar activities such as cooking and gardening. You may be prone to emotional fluctuations; you should learn to forgive and forget in order to avoid depression from thinking too much about things. Your perception of the world can be very subjective; try to create a certain distance without being bitter. Due to your rich emotional manifestation, you can create a real sense of belonging in the world.
1/14/2023 LAST QUARTER IN LIBRA: You might have a strong need for balance and harmony now. You probably desire to keep things nice rather than venturing into fundamental questions in order not to disturb the peace. You must learn to share your good and bad feelings. Do not be afraid to be who you really are, despite what is expected of you.
1/21/2023 NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN: Your relationship with your emotions might be more complicated because Moon in Aquarius has a strong need for emotional freedom. However, when you are in a group of people, it is easier for you to understand your feelings and free yourself from negative emotions such as fear, anger, and jealousy.
1/28/2023 FIRST QUARTER IN TAURUS: Your safety depends on the need for stability, which is not easy to satisfy now. You have to learn to accept change as part of your life. The basic problem is finding your own self-respect in order to ensure that you do not mistakenly seek it in material things. When you accept yourself for who you are, it will become easier for you to find peace and tranquility in the outside world.
