DAILY POWER ANIMAL
Lizard spirit | Dream bigger.

Lizard spirit returns to us today so that we may accomplish unfinished business. Are you dreaming a dream that’s big enough? The gauntlet has been thrown down, and 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. 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 are most likely well-calculated, intelligent, adaptive, creative, resourceful, and stable. 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 animal is here to guide you. 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-goal oriented, stable, protective, intelligent, and adaptive. 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 animal will help you stay on your way and achieve all of your goals.

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 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 Animal 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.


DAILY ORACLE CARD
VI | 6 OF SWORDS

The image in the Six of Swords shows a woman and a child in a boat being rowed in the water to a land that is on the other side. We can gather from the images that the woman and the child are leaving something behind, as their backs are faced towards us. The woman’s head is covered with a cloak – perhaps she is fleeing something, and must go without others knowing her true identity. We can assume that because of this, she is undergoing great loss or sadness. The symbolism within the Six of Swords is that of loss or change, as well as moving towards a future that looks more promising than the one that we left behind. The six swords alongside the boat symbolize the strong power of the

The meaning of the Six of Swords is that you are experiencing a transition of some kind, but one that is not happy and filled with regret. This transition will most likely be the result of decisions you made in the past, and now they are forcing you to leave something behind in order to move forward. Despite your sadness, you need to remember that moving on is the ideal option for your future.

Despite your sadness, you need to remember that moving on is the ideal option for your future.

Life is filled with moments when you are going to be forced into letting go of things that you have become attached to. This will be challenging. The Six of Swords shows the sadness that you may be feeling, but you have to remember that the pain will not last, so you should look instead to the future for strength.

In life, there will be times that the only way to fix a problem is to leave it and move to start anew. You may feel like this is the coward’s way out, but escape is the only approach that is left when you have tried all other methods. The important part is to plot your new course that will lead you to happiness. The Six of Swords in this case, is to plan using your logic, clarity, and objectivity about where you are now, where you have been and where you want to go. Intuition can help, but you need to think logically to ensure your success.



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.
