Messages From Spirit for May 26, 2023 ✨
Weekly Card Reading for the week of March 21, 2022
The crystals I am working with for the week are Dragons Blood, Bloodstone, and Unakite. I use these crystals to connect to the energy, to connect to the message meant for everyone who reads this, and to send you the healing energy of the crystals.
Dragons Blood – A tool for manifesting abundance and happiness. Helps us feel more positive and optimistic about the future. Urges us to step into our power and be bold. Represents tough skin with a loving heart.
Bloodstone – Centering and grounding. Increases adaptability and organization. Lessens confusion, stress, and anxiety. A stone of courage. Brings renewal by releasing blockages. Heals emotional traumas and grief. It enhances the intellect. It is used to bring energy in many ways, including abundance, success and prosperity.
Unakite – Helps you to visualize the things you desire in your life. Helps balance your emotions, bringing you more into alignment spiritually. It will assist you to sleep better, and will also help to relieve stress. It will help any addictive habits that you have had difficulty dealing with, as it helps you to break through the barriers that are keeping you down. It brings serenity and optimism about the future. This is a good stone to use during the difficult situations the world is undergoing right now. If you have been feeling depressed or feeling that you don’t know what the future holds for you, this stone is here to help you. A stone of love, especially self-love.
When I chose these stones, I was like, what is with all the blood references! What it represents is our heart, which is the green chakra, and the red color represents our life blood, our passion, desires, romance, and loving, healing, rooted energy. I’ve been struggling a bit lately, especially with anxiety, and these crystals are so perfect. I know that I am going to choose to be strong and face my fears. I do believe I am going to have an abundant and magical future, full of opportunities and adventures. In order to get there, I have to be brave and say yes. I have to be willing to put myself out there. I have to stop letting anxiety keep me small. It’s funny, I was just going through my message requests on facebook, and I had a message from one of those “spell casters”. I couldn’t tell if it was a spam message or an actual person, but in their message to me, they said: “Hi ma’am, I’ve been drawn to you…It’s been revealed to me that you have a brighter future and there are blessings that you should have received a longtime ago but there are some blockages that has been delaying you from getting these blessings and until these blockages have been casted before you can start moving forward financially, spiritually and in every other aspect of your life.” It is one of many signs lately telling me that it is time for us all to overcome the vibration of fear. We are meant to rise higher and be happy. We deserve all of the abundance as much as anyone else. Believe it. Love yourself so much. Expect blessings to be on the way to you. Feel optimistic and positive about the future. We have to stop stressing and worrying all the time. Trust that everything is always ok. We have to enjoy life while we can. It’s like me when I was 18, I thought I was so fat. I wish I was my 18 year old self now, but even at 37, I still have this lingering belief that I am not good enough… pretty enough… skinny enough… trendy enough.. accomplished enough… etc. Yet, I could have things so much worse! When I am 50, I’ll be missing my 37 year old body. I need to learn to embrace who I am now and appreciate it fully. I am pretty enough, smart enough, accomplished enough. I don’t have to prove myself around every corner. I can relax and enjoy life. I can put myself out there without concern of what others might think of me. I can be strong enough to love myself more. I can love myself deeply and whole-heartedly. I can appreciate my body for what it is. Stop hating your body, and start loving it. When you truly love yourself, you care for yourself much better. You want to eat healthier because your body deserves it. You want to feel good and energetic. You want to move your body because you can! Step into your power and be bold. We are now in Aries season, and Aries is all about powerful rebirth. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, and Aries is all about personal power. Feel the fiery Aries energy rising in your body. Allow yourself to transform and be rebirthed and renewed. You’ve been through so much. Use those lessons to propel you forward. Understand the strength you’ve gained. You have tough skin, and a loving heart because of it all. Take the positivity and leave the rest behind. This is a new astrological year! You can handle the things that are coming your way. Try to stay centred and grounded, and being organized can help manage anxiety and stress levels. Have courage and bust through the blockages that are holding you back. Heal your emotional traumas. Don’t allow your life to be guided from that place any longer. Align with your higher self. Constantly ask yourself, “what would my higher self do?” Embody your higher self and share that wisdom and intellect. People need what you to offer, so you must overcome your fears and share yourself with them. You will see rewards in your life for overcoming your fears and putting yourself out there. Success is abundant when you live from the heart. Visualize the things you desire that you want to see manifest in your life. Do meditations to help you visualize and get centred and grounded. When we can break through our fears and truly love ourselves, we can drop the addictive tendencies that we used to distract ourselves. Those addictive tendencies might have once served a purpose, but when you can fully align with your higher self, you understand and appreciate your body, and want to treat it the best you can. We are working through these things, and we can be successful. Our path forward isn’t always clear, especially during these uncertain times of pandemics and war. We ALL need to align in faith and love with our higher selves. I don’t know who can bomb innocent human beings without considering what it would be like to happen to them…. But we don’t get to make those choices for anyone else. All we can control is our own selves, and living the best lives we can, in a vibration of love. The more of us who can live in a evolved way, the better off all of our futures can be. I can’t stop the war, but I can spread love and overcome by own personal issues. I can do my own part to heal and walk in a better way with Earth and all of the Universe. Loving yourself fully is a key to unlocking so many doors of opportunity. Believe in yourself. People can tell you a million times you are worthy, but it’s only when you believe it in your own heart that the beauty and magic can unfold. Let’s see what the cards say!
These cards are so beautiful. The trees on the Nature Spirits card look like blood vessels to me. We are gaining awareness of how we are feeling, and working to release these issues and rejuvenate our energy. I was just looking up spiritual reasons for my chronic shoulder pain, and it was all about bearing life’s burdens. I honestly have to learn how to lighten up. Feeling more joy, optimism, and hope is important for us all. We are not meant to be constantly burdened all the time. We are the ones who allow ourselves to continue carrying these burdens. Yes, things may have hurt you in the past, but that is not your fault and you are a different person now. You don’t have to carry the weight of all the things you’ve gone through… it’s ok to let them go. We have to understand that, sometimes, life is going to sting. It is inevitable. That doesn’t mean we are going to feel stung forever. We can heal and we will get over it. The best thing about it, is YOU are in charge of how you find more joy and create more abundance in your life! You get to open the cage to your own freedom. Choose to be open. Choose to be free. Choose to heal. Choose to live a magical life free of worry. Spending time in nature, or using nature-based products, can help you heal. Happiness is on the way for us. Be open to receiving magical gifts from the Universe! Be open to receive all the good things. Visualize people sending you money for your services. Visualize your bank account adding up. Practice receiving gifts so you are ready and willing when they show up for you. The fairies are here blessing us. Welcome their joy and magic. There is so much magic happening behind the scenes. There is greatness coming for us. That is why we need to overcome our fears and blockages now. All the things we desire are trying to come to us, but if we are too sad and looking down, the opportunities for happiness might pass us by. So relax. Know all is well. Keep your head up. It’s all about taking the lessons and leaving the rest behind. Sometimes, the sting leads us to something better than we could’ve planned for ourselves. Spiritual teacher/healer was never on my list of career choices growing up, and if it was, I’m not sure if I would’ve ever known to consciously choose it. We are guided by all of our experiences in life, the good and the bad. They all form part of the beautiful whole that is existence. Spirit always has a plan. Trust in the plan for you. Be grateful, open, and ready to adapt when necessary. Remember how strong you are. Don’t hold onto anger just because you got stung. Let the anger go, and trust that there is a blessing and a lesson. Jealousy is a false belief that you can’t have what you want. When you feel jealous, understand that is really misplaced desire. Know that you can be just as much as the person you feel jealous of. You can have all those things and more, too. Trust and align with spirit. Be inspired where you once felt jealousy. Stop telling the story of how much something hurt. Start telling the story of how you are healed and whole. The Full Moon is the perfect time to let go of what no longer serves us, and we had a beautiful Virgo Full Moon this past Friday. Let go of what holds you back. Let yourself come to completion with these issues. Your life does not have to be defined in that way any longer. You have completed this cycle, and it’s time to move forward. We’ve gone through so much and overcome so much… how can we let anything stop us now? There is nothing to lose, and soooo much to gain. Gain joy, happiness, and abundance. Feel content and satisfied with your life. Allow yourself to relax. Trust you’ve done more than enough. Have a beautiful week!

Sun in Aries / Spring Equinox / Ostara / Astrological New Year – March 20, 2021
Tomorrow we have a few things happening! The Sun moves into the sign of Aries, which also means it’s the Astrological New Year! This is a fresh start for us as we move through a new astrological cycle. 🌞🌱
Last year in March, the energy was tough with the Sun conjunct Chiron and a Capricorn Stellium. This year is shaping up to be much more optimistic, with the Sun being closely conjunct to Venus. 👫
Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, and brings fresh, motivated energy. Aries is fiery, bold, enthusiastic, and always ready to take action. ♈️🐏
March 20 is also Spring Equinox and the Pagan Celebration of Ostara. This is a time of balance, and a time to celebrate life and Spring! 🐣
In researching the origins of Ostara, I found some conflicting information, as is usually the case when it comes to how holidays came to be.
In some interpretations, Ostara (Eostre or Eastre) is the Germanic Goddess of Spring and dawn. It is said that Pagan Anglo-Saxons held festivals in her honour. The symbols of Ostara are hares/rabbits (fertility), eggs/seeds (creation), serpent/dragon (kundalini energy is high!), flowers, and the colors green, yellow, purple, pink, blue, and orange. This is where coloured eggs and most Easter traditions originated from. It is said that when Catholicism tried to take over, they changed the name to Easter and changed the day it was celebrated to coincide with the resurrection of Jesus.
In the Catholic Faith, there are 2 holidays that get mixed up with the Vernal (Spring) Equinox. The first, occurring on March 25th, is the Feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This is the day that Archangel Gabriel announced to Mary she was “with child”. This occurs 9 months prior to Jesus’s birth, December 25th.
The other holiday that gets mixed up with this is Easter. Easter too, celebrates the victory of a God of Light (Jesus) over darkness (Death), so it makes sense to be celebrated at this time.
It is said that Easter is named after Eostre, the ancient Teutonic (German) Goddess of the Spring Moon. This coincides with the German Goddess origins of Ostara, except for the fact that Eostre was a lunar Goddess. Eostre is where we get the name Estrogen from, the female hormone. Her holiday, the Eostara, was held on the Full Moon AFTER the Vernal Equinox. Of course, the Church doesn’t celebrate Full Moons, so they chose for Easter to be on the following Sunday. Thus, Easter is always the following Sunday, after the Full Moon, after the Vernal Equinox. It should be noted, that the Church was so adamant about not incorporating Lunar Goddess symbolism, that they added a further calculation; if Easter Sunday falls on the Full Moon itself, the Easter is postponed to the following Sunday.
The other theme we see around Easter, is the decent of the God or Goddess into the Underworld for a period of 3 days. We see this when Jesus died on the cross and went to the Underworld for 3 days until he ascended into Heaven. We also see this in Pagan religion, and other historic traditions too. The fact that we are dealing with a 3 day period, indicates a lunar theme for Easter, and not a solar one.
Another piece of conflicting information said that there is no evidence of Ostara being celebrated at all in Pagan times, and that evidence doesn’t show up until the 1800’s.
It can be hard to pin down the origins of our traditions, but it is quite obvious to me that most, if not all of our traditions, began as an effort to honour nature and it’s cycles. Somewhere along the lines, Ostara became about celebrating Spring, and Eostara is the lunar celebration of the Vernal Equinox. 🌞🌝
Enjoy this time of celebration and growth! Enjoy the increase in the light! Celebrate new beginnings! Look to this next season with optimism and hope. 🌷🐞
Also, on March 21, Venus enters Aries too, ramping up the love energy! It brings a renewal of the heart, and reminds us of our innocence and that we instinctively know what we want. 👩❤️💋👨👨👩👦👦
Happy Spring Equinox! 🌷🌞🌱
