For many horizon-edge walkers and vision-seeders, transformation agents, and similar culture-shifters, transformation fatigue and burnout are occupational hazards.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and to become fatigued or heavy hearted at what seems a daunting task in the face of myriad epic challenges that roll in like waves from the ocean.

I’m pretty resilient, and devoted to The Work and the practices that allow and support it, but sometimes I — like all of us — feel the bone-weariness of transformation fatigue and other occupational hazards.

I’ve learned from experience that dipping often into the deep, rich wellsprings of inspiration from our kindred-spirit edge walkers and vision-seeders is vital … as are other disciplines and practices that help us to be as we are (and as we’re here on this planet…

A Season of Focused Vision-Tending

Ahhhh, yes, we enter anew into the Season of Vision-Tending and renewal.

It’s always a fine time to renew, revitalize, regenerate, and re-vision, of course.

But there are also times that are potent in their adding support to just that. This is just such a portal of time in the coming weeks and few months.

Plus, we all know how it feels to be anxious, frazzled, and ‘behind’ as we move through the often-stressful (for many) holidays and into the new year.

Tending these fires, strengthening our connection to what truly matters, and stirring vision and attending to renewal, eases the way considerably.

That makes visioning and renewal very, very practical.

So in the Spirit of the season, here’s an updated Season of Vision-Tending …

What Vision-Seeds and “new greenings” will grow in your garden in the coming weeks and months?

Big Love and Evocative Vision-Tending,

It’s the perfect time for checking in with the deepest stirrings of heart-and-soul … a Season of Vision-Stirring, Vision-Seed Planting, and Vision-Tending.

I’ve got a Vision-Stirring feature-page on the Sophia’s Children work-table, but for right now, here’s some Vision-Season inspiration.

It’s prime visioning time.

Even the current astro-mythic and Seasonal energies support Vision-Tending:

We already know that the uber-transformative and “Are you being true-you?” Uranus is in Aries and Pluto in the “bring Wisdom to Earth” landscape of Capricorn, Neptune and Chiron travels through heartful, soulful, Divine-connected Pisces, and Saturn the master-magi-teacher is fresh into the sign of the Archer asking us this question:

Just what fiery arrows are we aiming, and at just what destinations … and in service to what (or whom)?

Venus has joined vision-expanding Jupiter and energizing Mars in fire-tending Virgo, before she moves onward, like Inanna or…
