Birthday Tree Advice 13: January 29 to February 4
December 23rd - January 1st – Apple Tree
When you get knocked down do you tend to stay down?
Or do you bounce back, ready for more? You might like to think
you can always take on more, but recently, you are just feeling like staying down and pretending you are in a total knocked out state. It’s fine to fake it, rest, recoup, and plan for your future attack.
January 2nd – January 11th – Fir Tree
This week will be like a tasty morsel to you and you are ready to gobble it up! And it’s about time, too. While things haven’t been
out and out bad, they also certainly could be better! Enjoy this
week and have gratitude for all the goodness it will bring.
January 12th - January 24th – Elm Tree
Sometimes it just feels like fate has stacked the deck against you.
It isn’t anything personal—sometimes things just don’t go your way even though it doesn’t seem fair. Look for what is right about all of this—maybe something better awaits and you just wouldn’t have seen it otherwise.
January 25th – February 3rd – Cypress Tree
You are like an ostrich and are really great at tucking your head
in the sand to avoid problems, confrontation, or just because something has you afraid you just don’t want to look at it. This means things will be all well and good until this behavior affects you negatively. You cannot avoid problems forever and this delays your abilities to actually deal with them.
February 4th – February 8th – Poplar Tree
You are wishing for that heady, in-love rush that you get when you are experiencing new love, either of a person, place, or new item. Things are feeling a little stale to you lately. Make a few changes and invite something new into your life.
February 9th – February 18th – Cedar Tree
Far flung ideas will hit their mark this week. Take notice and start asking for your ideas to show up! You have great ideas, but no one will ever know unless you start sharing.
February 19th – February 28th – Pine Tree
You have been worrying over something lately and you are also worried that your worries are really going to bring this thing to pass. You are probably right in this regard. Really take an in-depth look at what you fear. Do you see the worst possible outcome? Worst case, is it something you can deal with? If not, take action now to put the necessary change in motion so that the worst case will not show up and you can start to rest easier.
February 29th – Poplar Tree
You’ve been feeling like experiencing something that was your favorite as a child. This desire to revert for a fleeting moment into the comfort of childhood is fine. Don’t judge yourself for wanting
to feel like a kid again. You are too realistic to ever be like that, anyway. But a little fun never hurt anyone.
March 1st – March 10th – Weeping Willow
When your cup runs over, what do you do to catch the extra?
This is the week for solving for “the extra” that your original cup simply will not or cannot hold. If the cup runs over with the good stuff, even better. If it is the opposite, you will still need to deal
with “the extra”, it just won’t be super fun.
March 11th – March 20th – Lime Tree
You really are a tough cookie, and you have a love/hate relation- ship with being viewed this way and operating this way. You at times wish that people would treat you better, but you know that you don’t want to be viewed as a victim or a sissy. You like that people are blunt and honest with you, but this can also hurt your feelings. You never really took the time to nurture the kind and soft side you have—maybe now is the time to investigate this malnourished part of you.
March 21st – Oak Tree
You are very stubborn and headstrong. You really think your ideas are the best, your way of doing things far trumps others, and that if everyone just did like you, the world would clearly be a better place. These points of view, while they do make you feel powerful, do really limit you and make it hard for others to interact with you. Just know this and choose what and how you’d really like to be.
March 22nd - March 31st – Hazelnut Tree
You find that you are ending up with your feelings hurt, pretty much on the daily. You are beginning to wonder if there might just be something wrong with you—no one else seems to be this sensitive. There isn’t anything wrong with you—did you ever consider that
you are just picking up on what is going on from those around you? What if your feelings of upset really don’t have anything to do with you? What if you are able to experience this to help other people?
April 1st – April 10th – Rowan Tree
You are a lean, mean, working machine! You easily get done in a few hours what takes the average person a full day. The catch is: when you want to. When you want to, you can flip that switch and hyper focus. The trick is being able to do it all the time, not just when you are excited about something.
April 11th – April 20th – Maple Tree
Bring someone you know friendly flowers or another small gift of friendship. Chances are, you will make their day, and really help improve their overall outlook. It’s funny how these small details
and touches can really make a difference.
April 21st – April 30th – Walnut Tree
You are feeling a little bitter this week. You didn’t get exactly what you had in mind and you are struggling to come to terms with this. It isn’t like this is a bad situation, either, it just isn’t as grand as what you were envisioning. Hopefully you won’t let yourself stay bitter for long. Otherwise you might end up missing out on something unexpected and beneficial.
May 1st – May 14th – Poplar Tree
Love, work, play. Love, work, play. These are the three things you seem to be doing the most of these days. Not like this is really a problem, you just might be getting a little bored with the expected and routine. Mix something new in and see what happens.
May 15th – May 24th – Chestnut Tree
It’s nice to know how people really feel about you, right?
The problem is that you never really asked for people’s opinions. Sometimes things are best kept to themselves, even if the opinion
is good. What if you didn’t live up to their thoughts of you?
What if they are just plain wrong in their assessment?
It all seems to cause you much stress!
May 25th – June 3rd – Ash Tree
Some things are just meant to be. You don’t usually have a
problem accepting this when things are positive and work to your advantage. You do have a problem, however, when things don’t
go in your favor. What you need to understand is that the unfortunate things always have a hidden right and correct for
you hidden within. You just need to look for it.
June 4th – June 13th – Hornbeam Tree
You seem to spend a lot of time seeking the approval of others.
You feel torn between many masters and struggle to find peace
and happiness since everyone is full of interesting thoughts on what you should do! Maybe it’s time to consider that you need to choose what is best for you and leave everyone else out of the process.
June 14th – June 23rd – Fig Tree
You are actively learning new and exciting concepts. These types of tasks suit you and you enjoy them. Think about what you can do to keep the ball rolling with this.
June 24th – Birch Tree
No one likes a party pooper, and that’s what you've been lately.
You can’t seem to help yourself since everyone just seems so
out of touch with reality! You don’t really need to police the fun;
just let everyone find out the hard way while you focus on creating something that would be fun for you—even if you are the only one who thinks this way.
June 25th – July 4th – Apple Tree
Friends are going to come calling this week. Be sure to answer them since what they will offer will be interesting, exciting, and be
a real adventure. The details will work themselves out, so don’t
get caught up in thinking things through too much. You might ruin the magic if you do!
July 5th – July 14th – Fir Tree
The recent changes with your home life are still upsetting to you. Something feels like you got lost in the process and you feel less secure. Let time heal these wounds and who knows? What was lost might re-materialize. Stranger things have happened!
July 15th – July 25th – Elm Tree
You are feeling scattered like a dandelion that had its seeds blown in the wind. You might even be running around frantically trying to collect up all the seeds, to put the “pouf” back together, and just when you think you’ve picked up every last one, a new gust of wind comes along and the game starts all over again. The purpose of the dandelion is to scatter its seeds far and wide. Wherever they fall is the best place for them to be.
July 26th – August 4th – Cypress Tree
Sometimes people just do the meanest, most hurtful things!
You just don’t understand how people can treat each other like this. While it boggles your mind, it also offends your soul. See if there
is something you can do that will directly help others. Be the inspiration. Others will follow suit.
August 5th – August 13th – Poplar Tree
There is a little black spot on the sun today. You have been having this nagging concern — maybe about your health, or about your family? You don’t typically like to verbalize your concerns since you don’t want them to become a habit or reality; plus, you find things are just simpler and happier this way. It might behoove you to address this concern, however, and get things in order, that way you can get back to being happy and unburdened.
August 14th – August 23rd – Cedar Tree
You have endurance! You have been inching along for quite awhile now, with a substantial goal in your sights. While you might not be there yet, give yourself credit for your tenacity and strength of will. Not many people would have come this far.
August 24th – September 2nd – Pine Tree
When it comes to other people you just don’t understand why they don’t want to be with you all the time! As far as you are concerned, you are the life of the party, are super funny, and super giving. You might just need to add new people into your life who see these parts of you.
September 3rd – September 12th – Weeping Willow
This week you will be very productive. You never really give yourself enough credit in this department. You think that everyone is just like you and are able to get everything done in the same fashion. News flash! This is not so! Give credit where credit is due and claim some great talents and abilities.
September 13th - September 22nd – Lime Tree
Reach out to a friend or loved one. They are feeling alienated and lonely. A friendly voice and a welcoming hug might be all they need. Don’t be surprised if they cycle back around when times get good and remember your friendly ways.
September 23rd – Olive Tree
Sometimes you don’t feel like you actually belong here. You look up at the stars and wonder if you have relatives out there somewhere. It’s a strange thought, or so you think. Listen to these inner voices and maybe start to take notes. You never know where it will lead.
September 24th – October 3rd – Hazelnut Tree
Time to dream, wish, hope for, and plan something or someone new. If you can see it, you can create it. If you can choose it, you can have it.
October 4th – October 13th – Rowan Tree
No one really likes being told what to do, and you are no different. You sometimes keep parts of your life hidden to avoid this situation all together, or deliberately withhold information to keep these issues at bay. Just don’t be surprised when people come to the wrong conclusions about you because they do not have the whole story.
October 14th – October 23rd – Maple Tree
You never know when trouble will start or when you will be at a disadvantage, especially with a certain someone. Now is the time to work on this. Ask questions. Draw their attention to their behavior. Don’t be surprised if they throw the blame on you—but you will make them think. This will lead to positive resolution.
October 24th – November 11th – Walnut Tree
You do not have the whole picture or did not get the entire story,
and yet you have been acting like you know everything. Stop,
think, and consider. You could be mistreating a friend and judging them too harshly.
November 12th – November 21st – Chestnut Tree
Work on calming your nerves. Something has you a bit off your game and feeling unsettled. Drink tea, take a nap, walk in nature. Do something that helps you feel grounded and happy. Make an effort to do this every day and this will help shift this strange and unsettling aspect in your life.
November 22nd – December 1st – Ash Tree
You have a number of really great friends that would all like to spend time with you, hear your thoughts, get your advice, and share a fun time. The trouble is you can’t seem to find the time to have the fun! Make an effort to organize your schedule this week. Make sure you leave some room for fun and friends, even if you are very, very, busy.
December 2nd – December 11th – Hornbeam Tree
You are feeling like you might need a “mental health” day. You have been working very hard and looking after the needs of others. Usually you find this rewarding. This week you might find a change and experience it more as a drain on your energy and vitality. If you call in sick, no one would blame you. In fact, it might be the best thing for you if you took a day, just for you, to enjoy and not have to do anything!
December 12th – December 21st – Fig Tree
The energy is building up on a certain project. Make sure you
don’t loose steam or get derailed by the small little details. It is easy to get hung up on these things, yet you know that your success rests on your ability to think clearly and decisively. If you need a nap, take one. Then get back to work!
December 22nd – Beech Tree
You’ve been embarrassed, and while others might not realize it,
or know about it, you certainly feel the grip of shame. Try not to worry about it. What seems like a big deal to you really isn’t to everyone around you. Try to live your life from a little lighter and more forgiving place. You will find that you are generally happier for it.
你就像一只鸵鸟,真的很擅长把头埋在沙子里, 回避问题, 不想面对,或仅仅因为你害怕看到你所可怕的事物。这意味着天下太平直到这种行为消极地影响到你。你无法永远回避问题,这会影响你处理问题的能力。
你最近一直很担心某件事,你也担心,你的担忧会真的使这件事发生。在这方面，你也许是对的。好好看看你到底害怕什么。你看到最坏的、可能的结果了吗?最糟糕的情况是你可以处理的吗? 如果处理不了, 那现在就做一些必要的改变,这样最坏的情况就不会出现,你也可以放心了。
你非常固执和任性。你真的认为你的想法是最好的,你做事的方式远远胜过其他人,如果每个人都像你一样,世界显然会是一个更好的地方。这些观点, 虽然它们让你感到很强大, 会真正限制你，并且使别人很难与你互动。要知道这一点，然后决定你真正想要成为的人是什么样的。
你发现最终你的感情总是受到伤害,几乎每天都是这样。你开始想你是否可能有什么问题 ---似乎没有其他人这么敏感。你并没有什么错---你是否考虑过是周围的人们影响了你？万一你心烦的感觉真的和你没什么关系呢? 万一你能够体验到这些是因为你可以帮助其他人呢?
给朋友送上一束友好的鲜花或其他代表友谊的小礼物。机会是, 你将使他们度过美好的一天,真正帮助提高他们的整体状态。有趣的事, 这些小的细节和联系真的可以改变一些事情。
了解人们对你的看法是件不错的事,对吗?问题是,你从未真正问过人们的意见。有时，事情最好不公开,即使意见是好的。如果你辜负了他们对你的评价怎么办? 或者如果他们只是做出了错误的评估呢? 这一切似乎给你造成太多的压力!
你感觉像蒲公英, 种子散落在风中。你甚至可能在四处疯狂地收集所有的种子, 来把“蒲公英 团”凑回在一起,当你认为你已经捡起每一颗种子的时候,另一阵风又刮了过来, 一切又要重新开始。蒲公英本来就是要更远地散播它的种子。无论它们落在哪里都是最好的选择。
11月12日- 11月21 -栗树
你感觉你可能需要一个“ 平复心情”的一天。你一直都很辛苦, 忙着照顾别人的需求。通常你发现这样做很值得。本周你可能会经历一个改变，更多的感到是对你能量和精力的消耗。如果你请病假,没有人会责怪你。事实上, 如果你能花一天只是为了你自己, 去享受，不需要做任何事，可能对你是最好的!
有一件事变得越来越重要，引起更多的关注。确保你不要泄气或在小细节上关注的太多而不能顾全大局。这些小事情很容易误导你, 但是你知道,你的成功取决于你清晰的、果断的思维能力。如果你需要小睡一下, 那就去吧。然后赶快回到工作中!
你一直感到很尴尬,而其他人可能没意识到, 不了解,你确实觉得很羞愧。不要担心。对你看起来好似一件不得了的事情, 可对你身边的人来说这件事不算什么。尽量活的更轻松一些，对自己更宽容一些。你会发现，因为这样，你将更加快乐。
