Saraswati is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, wisdom, and the arts. Call on Saraswati for assistance when you’re studying, deepening a creative pursuit, or starting a new job. She’ll also help increase confidence and charisma in conversations where your knowledge is being put to the test.
Here is a message from Saraswati.
Beloveds, you think that you must know it all, see it all, and have all of the answers in order to be worthy. It is true that you must have some requisite knowledge in the areas in which you practice, of course. But this has nothing to do with worthiness. Your worthiness is inherent in everything that you do, that you have, that you be. For you are your worthiness, and your worthiness is you. They are not separated based on some human ideal of merit – knowledge-based, career-based, status-based, or other. In fact, you must know and understand this in order to truly embody your worthiness – to know that you, too, are a devi.
I must tell you to work with the energies, with the changing tides. Do not struggle against them based on some definition that you’ve developed, like the definition of worthiness above. Once you flow with the energies and allow things to happen, you will understand how little is truly set in stone. So many things are flexible and ever-changing . . . you miss the magic and the miracle of it if you’re constantly focused on one set path.
Allow us to talk to you through your world – you will see better and will understand your magic as well as the Universe’s. Magic is irreplaceable, no matter what you do . . . magic is the seed from which all art develops. Allow the magic to take root in your soul, in your mind, and in your body. Move with the wind, with the world. You will be much more satisfied and joyful. Be as a bird . . . free and flying through life, certain of your path only because you know that your senses will guide you. Control is stifling; enjoy this new freedom.
We love you . . . we are here for you. Things have been changing lately more than ever, we know. But this is a good thing, I must assure you. Focus on yourself and your needs; focus on your magic. Move with the wind and fly through life. Surrender to the shifts so that there’s nothing to overcome. It is then that you will know true freedom.
Welcome to the full moon in Pisces! This week’s energy is all about integration of the magical with the mundane, which means that it’s time to infuse some light into your standard routine. Have you been holding back in some way or hiding yourself from the spotlight? In what ways do you shine that you’ve neglected to share with others?
It’s likely that your special brand of amazing is needed right now in some way – be it at work, among friends or family, or in your community. What unique traits can you offer to help others? The Pisces moon is the perfect time to discover those traits and bring them to the surface for enjoyment.
If you haven’t yet been called toward your deeper purpose but are starting to feel the yearning to know what exactly it is, this moon offers some serious potential for manifestation of your highest self. What are your dreams and values? How do you wish to impact the world? What is the legacy that you wish to leave? Pisces, the emotive idealist, can inspire you to reach new heights, especially when paired with the practical and hardworking Virgo sun.
Work with amazonite, dendritic opal, Botswana agate, or polychrome jasper to ground the etheric Pisces energy while motivating you to achieve new heights.
Archangel Aurora is the twin flame of Archangel Uriel; together, they are known as the Angels of Peace. Call on Archangel Aurora when you’re looking to increase inner peace; improve harmony in relationships; and boost self-love and self-satisfaction.
Here is a message from Archangel Aurora.
Loved ones, thank you for all that you do each day. Thank you for your love, for your hope, and for striving to do better always. We recognize the efforts that you’ve made and that you make continuously – we are happy.
Please, we must tell you, do not be so hard on yourselves! Things happen. Mistakes occur. Meanings are tarnished, words are missed, feelings are perceived incorrectly. There are moments where you may feel like making an outburst, regardless of your age – screaming, crying, lashing out. This is normal. Do not blame yourself. Love yourself through all of it.
You are human. You process things as they happen. When they do, it’s an invitation to observe, to discover, and to grow. Never be hard on yourself for learning and for growing! You’re here to learn and grow, that’s the very purpose of your existence on this planet. Reactions are simply opportunities for growth.
Know that you’ll never feel you have it all “right.” And that’s perfect. You have it right according to your soul’s plan; that’s the only thing you need to know, really. Everything works out the way that it does for a reason; you’ve designed it this way for a reason. Darkness comes because darkness, too, cultivates growth.
Please note that times of immense darkness can also bring times of immense light – you must lean into the darkness, be one with it, in order to transform the darkness into light. When you do so, you become the alchemist – perfectly in control of your universe and at one with all that is. It is from this space that you can expand, flow, and create.
So take your mistakes, your pain, your darkness, and transform them into light. Everything that you go through is for a purpose. You must simply find the lesson in the mix.
The first quarter moon in Scorpio has arrived, inspiring us to turn inward and focus on our thoughts, beliefs, and areas of our being that we’d like to transform, awaken, and hone. Never one to shy away from the depths, Scorpio encourages us to take a probing look at our shadow side. Instead of hiding the parts of yourself that you find less than ideal, try this week to appreciate those facets of yourself and recognize the gifts that they’ve given you. Self-care and self-love are about caring for and loving all aspects of ourselves, not just those that appear pretty and shiny on the outside.
What traits do you have that you don’t enjoy? What interests, reactions, or segments of yourself do you shy away from? Do you ultimately push them down or work on them? Do you share these things with others, or do you cover them entirely so that they aren’t visible? We’re often more sensitive than others around us to our perceived “faults,” so you may be surprised if you do discuss these aspects with your loved ones – you may discover that they’ve already noticed and that they love those parts just as much as the rest of you. Growth, transition, and transmutation may be necessary in some areas, but think how much more whole and satisfied you’ll feel once you’ve done the work and are no longer ashamed, self-conscious, or frustrated with any part of yourself.
Tomorrow brings the end of Mercury retrograde, which means that some of the stress and strain involving communication, transportation, and agreements will lessen. Be aware that the shadow period is still active until September 2, so the effects won’t fade entirely for a couple of weeks. With five other planets in retrograde, too, an intense period of personal discovery is bound to continue for awhile. This entire year is all about release, transformation, growth, and manifestation of your highest good, so continue to work with the planetary energies to achieve your overall goals in these areas.
Work with malachite, Smithsonite, labradorite, rhodochrosite, or rainbow sheen obsidian to access, uncover, analyze, shift, and integrate those shadow parts of your being that you’ve hidden from yourself or from others.
