Breathe Deeply

Breathe Deeply

Sometimes the most effective way to decompress, de-stress, and relax is to breathe deeply.

Stop thinking about that job/relationship/family situation/financial hurdle. Focus instead on your breath and your being.

Let everything else go, and feel yourself becoming calmer in the process.

Full Moon in Capricorn: Insight, Assessment, & Healing

Full Moon in Capricorn: Insight, Assessment, & Healing

Welcome to the full moon in Capricorn!

You’ve likely been feeling this powerhouse all week, along with the multiple retrogrades that are happening right now.

The good news is that despite the seeming chaos, we are actually whittling things down to what truly serves us – the other things that don’t serve are going by the wayside. The key to handling this transition with ease is detachment and fluidity; attachment and expectations will only lead to disappointment right now. Whatever it is that’s been holding you back, LET IT GO. Once you have, you’ll find an entirely new experience on the other side.

It’s important to remember that forward movement equals growth: even if it’s painful in the moment, change is ultimately for our highest and best good. Give in and allow the release – it’s okay to cry as you’re letting things go, and it’s actually an amazing way to shed any negative energy that you’ve accumulated. Allow yourself to truly feel everything as it comes up – that’s how you’ll clear it for good. Planetary forces right now aren’t going to allow you to hold onto much, anyway – karma, conditioning, outdated patterns, and non-beneficial parts of our being are all up for review and release, and we’ll fare better if we allow it to happen. Ask Archangel Jeremiel to help you take stock of your life, and ask Archangels Uriel and Jophiel to surround you with light, peace, love, and beauty as you surrender to the Universe.

Work with:

  • shungite
  • malachite
  • blue sapphire
  • rainbow calcite

… for insight, assessment, and healing.

 

 

Take the Leap

Have you been considering an activity, achievement, or growth step that you just know you’re meant to do, but you haven’t been fully ready to take the plunge?

Today you’re urged to take the leap.

Kill the fear. Follow your instincts.

Success requires commitment, and you can’t fully commit while you’re hesitating.

True growth can only occur with action, and this week’s energy is perfectly supportive of any action in your highest and best good. The waxing moon and the summer solstice combine for major oomph and energetic potential.

Tap into the flow however you feel called.

Summer Solstice: Inspiration, Motivation, and Accomplishment

Summer Solstice: Inspiration, Motivation, and Accomplishment

Happy summer solstice! The moon is waxing, and the theme of structured and purpose-driven action continues throughout the week. The summer solstice supports this energy and adds an air of inspiration, motivation, and accomplishment. Congratulations! We’re now on the other side of the energetic wall that we’ve all been feeling.

Pyrite, amber, carnelian, and clear quartz are wonderful crystals for enhancing energy, achievements, and a purpose-driven life.

First Quarter Moon in Virgo: Action Supported by Purpose

First Quarter Moon in Virgo: Action Supported by Purpose

Today is the first quarter moon, and it’s a week of clear action supported by higher purpose. We’re being called to increase our knowledge and overall awareness not only of ourselves but of our loved ones, our communities, and our countries. Cultural and patriarchal situations have spiked, and while intermediate measures have been taken, there is more to learn, more to integrate, and more to do.

At the same time, Virgo urges us to be organized and methodical in our choices. Assess your skills and resources to determine where you would be most helpful. Acting without a plan isn’t the best move, but make sure that you don’t let the plan hold you up – it’s more important to move forward than to have things perfect before doing so. Use your intuition to feel out how you can be most effective in your responses.

Though this first quarter moon began in Virgo, it’s interesting to note that it had an almost immediate shift into Libra, which rules the house of partnership. Libra brings with it reason, justice, unity, and love. Along with those qualities, Libra infuses us with hope and idealism. If we can truly join together, love one another, and treat each other with respect and equality, we’ll make great strides as people, communities, and nations.

Work with almandine garnet, petrified wood, chalcopyrite, and chiastiolite for structured and purpose-driven action.
