Butterfly Journal: Expansion (Month 8, Entry 2)


Art by Josephine Wall

In Entry 1 for the eighth month of Butterfly Journal I discussed empathy, compassion, the differences between the two, and how both connect us to in this interconnected web of existence. Since posting that post, I have been both observing and contemplating on how much expansion I have experienced just in the past couple of months:

  • I’ve moved to a new location that I love.
  • My Tarot, Astrology, & Energy Healing practice has been expanding in busy-ness and in growing internationally.
  • I’ve been expanding my personal yoga practice once again to an almost daily practice.
  • Locally I have been expanding my connections – meeting new people and regularly exploring new locations.
  • And without even trying and with people just appearing to me, I have begun to attract and build a local client base.

I definitely have been “bursting out of the bonds of the cocoon,” as this month’s journal prompt states!

As many of you know, two months ago I took a big leap of faith and stepped into the unknown like the Fool of the Tarot, and moved to a new place where I knew no one. I had completed a cycle of ancestral, shamanic, and healing work in the family home, and the signs were all there that it was now my time – time to complete the move I began three years prior and time to catch up with myself. (You can explore some of the early Butterfly Journal posts for the background on this here.)

And as I stepped into this magnificent void of unknowing and emptiness where everything and anything is possible based upon my openness and upon my knowing that all the seeds of intentions that I had planted over the past few years would now sprout and grow and expand into a beautiful garden, I knew that I, myself as an individual, and my work (which is what I do and a part of me) would ride this growing flow of momentum of expansion. Faith and allowing are powerful, powerful means of manifestation!


Jupiter, the planet of expansion, turned retrograde this month. During his retrograde phase it is an excellent time to revisit and return to things from the past or things put on hold that will now be able to better grow and expand. With this energy I am returning to teaching and facilitating workshops and webinars! The first one is a writing and journaling workshop:

Transformational Journaling for Personal Growth

During this 12 session interactive teleconference workshop, we will journey through Butterfly Journal together:

What will you gain and benefit from taking this workshop and going on this transformational journey?

  • Skills in self-reflection 
  • Awareness and acknowledgment of your shadow side
  • Healing of old and newer emotional and psychological wounds
  • A clearer view and perception of yourself, your actions, and how they affect others
  • A greater understanding and compassion for yourself, others, and the planet

  5. Such wonderful inspiration to us all Julianne, to step out beyond our fear and find out who we can become! It’s great to see this abundance come to you after moving with courage.

  6. I am so happy for your abundance! ❤

    • Thank you Alethea! I’ve been meaning to tell you that the one card reading you did for me last summer was one of the biggest signs/messages that helped me to take that step into the unknown. I forget what the card was, but it was something similar to that. ❤
