Weekly Card Reading – Week of May 16, 2021

The crystals I am working with for the week are Calcite, Yellow Feather Jasper, and Yellow Jasper. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystal to you.

Calcite – Cleansing, big changes, and fresh starts. Clears out old energy patterns. Mental expansion and learning new skills. Protective against negative energies. Increases motivation and drive. Enhances trust in oneself and strength to overcome setbacks. Increases self-confidence and hope.

Yellow Feather Jasper – Stimulates the Solar Plexus Chakra. Amplifies self-confidence, courage and empowerment. Facilitates the release of toxins. Provides protection during Spiritual work. Wind, faith, lightness, mobility, air, flight, joy, contemplation.

Yellow Jasper – A stone of protection. Provides inner strength and mental clarity. It holds a deep connection to the Earth and is good for grounding. Amplifies self-confidence and courage, bringing energy and enthusiasm. Deflects jealousy, and makes an excellent shield if you are the object of petty gossip. Eases chronic worries and self-consciousness about what others say or think, and helps to overcome fears of being alone in public. A good stone for dieting, it lends emotional support and strength in self-discipline, as well as boosting physical energy levels. Soothes the digestive system. Promotes inner strength, helping one to bear life’s frustrating experiences and providing the tenacity and perseverance to overcome them. It encourages enthusiasm and joy, and helps attract positive friendships. Yellow Jasper brings new interests and new relationships, helping you to see things in a different light. It adds clarity, zest, optimism, and meaning to your life.

I love yellow crystals. Today, I felt such an earthy energy… a very grounded and beautiful energy. The yellow signifies a sense of optimism, confidence, and happiness. We, as human beings, are being called forth to our destiny. Our inner knowing of what we need to pursue during our time on earth, can no longer be ignored. We are growing in spiritual consciousness, wether you want to jump on the band wagon or drag your heels. We are moving into a new era of social justice, where people will speak their truth with freedom and respect. We are going to come together in love and mutual respect, because we have no other choice if we want a harmonious future for humanity… and we do want that for our future generations. Whatever you are being called to speak upon, share your truth. Even if you think nobody cares or listens, they do, and it does matter. I listened to Episode 11 of BASAC’s podcast yesterday (Battlefords & Area Sexual Assault Centre) and they had a guest on, Krista Fox, who was speaking about Ashley Morin who has been missing from North Battleford, Saskatchewan since 2018. Ashley was a classmate of my sister. She was a bright, athletic, caring young woman. Krista really inspired me, because not only was she speaking up for all Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, but she was speaking up for all missing people as a whole, noting that they are not merely a case number, but they are sons, daughters, siblings, parents… they are real people with hearts and stories to tell. She is doing a walk across Canada to raise awareness for all missing people, and what really stuck with me, was when she said that she had to do something because this can’t and should not keep happening to our people. She is so right. When are we going to stand up and say no more. When are we going to change how we take care of each other. No, not everybody is going to do their part, but the more we stand together in strength and solidarity, the more we can effect change and hold people accountable. Do your part and get involved in your community. Get some cameras installed. Use your voice to effect change. This is a time of power and potential. We are cleaning house (physically and spiritually) and making room for grander things to come. We are making changes in our lives for the better. This is a fresh start. This is a perfect time to step into a new version of you. We have been working hard on healing toxic patterns that we’ve carried, and it is paying off… we are healing. We are expanding, learning, and growing so much. We are motivated for the future and feeling passionate about our dreams and goals. Trust yourself. You can get through any challenges that arise. You are being protected and being distanced from negative energy. Be confident in yourself and your abilities. Fill your stomach chakra with hope and joy. It’s summertime. It’s time to be happy and feel childlike wonder again. This will be hard to experience if you are weighed down with worries and stress. Have the strength and clarity to focus your energy on the positives. Have confidence, courage, and enthusiasm. You have the strength and willpower to create the changes you desire. No more being hard on yourself. Love yourself and trust yourself. Get outside and feel connected to the Earth. Ground yourself with activities that keep you feeling calm and peaceful. This is a time to add some positivity and zest to your life. Have some fun. Visit a friend. Try a new activity. Enjoy some lovely summer weather. Let’s see what the cards have to add.

These cards are so beautiful! We are definitely in strong Earth energies. My family can’t really have pets, we are all allergic, but I still LOVE the animal energy in my life. We live out in the country, so everyday I get to have animals visits with snakes, owls, deer, mice, rabbits, foxes, eagles, hawks, moose, birds, cats, etc. I always feel blessed when I have an animal encounter. We are going to benefit a lot this week from spending time with Animals. Animals can help keep us grounded and soothe us in times of stress. They add such beautiful energy to our life, and even provide us much needed guidance. For me, I saw a Hawk a few days ago that flew right in front of our vehicle. Hawks symbolize freedom, flight, and creativity. When you encounter an animal this week, treat it with the respect it deserves. If there is a spider in your home, find a way to remove it and take it outside. Treat other beings with the respect that you would want. This card, Animals, really is reminding us of our connection to Earth, the Universe, and to all things. The natural world is a part of you, and you should feel connected to it. Every animal has its purpose on Earth, as do we. You need to find your gifts and share them. You weren’t born for nothing, and you have a plethora of talents. Put them to use and make something of yourself! We all do our part here, so make sure you are doing yours. This doesn’t mean you have to be something grandeur, it simply is about creating a meaningful life where we care about the Earth and do good things for each other. We have to stand up for the animals too. If they lose their habitats, they lose their ability to play their part, which in turn will affect us as well. We are being reminded that we are no better than any other animal to be on this planet, and we have to work with the animals instead of against them. We have to create this change. Air is telling me that things are in motion. The changes we desire are happening. The things that we have done, have not gone unnoticed. I find the image of the horses very powerful. Every minute, we are a new version of ourselves and have the chance to start again. I sense a different emotion in every image of the horse on the Air card. Remember that emotions will pass, so don’t let them get the best of you. Feel what’s going on, and find the best way to get through it, then be better for it the next minute. We have to be flexible, yet grounded. We have to reach for the sky and for our dreams, while keeping our feet on the ground and obliging to our responsibilities. This is about freedom for all of us on Earth. We have to use our voices and stand up for what we believe in. We also must do it respectfully, so our communication can be effective. Air is also telling us that we gave many great ideas swirling now. Put them to paper. Use them wisely. Make sure you are breathing, that is the most important to stay grounded. Find your own space and make your own choices that are in your best interest. See things differently and be willing to start fresh. The Meadow reminds us, that if we want to actualize our dreams, we are going to have to be Vulnerable. It’s the only way to get to where we are going. We have to stay grounded, and in a place of faith and trust. You might not be able to see the whole path, but you can see the general direction your aiming to go. We can’t control the way things are going to go. We need to be vulnerable, flexible, and allow the Universe to provide even better than we could ever dream of. We need to make the best of things. Enjoy the journey. Revel in the beauty. Take your time and relax along the way. There is no rush. Feel comforted by the sky above. You may still fee vulnerable, just make sure to build your vulnerability on a foundation of trust. There is no room for fears of any kind. Trust your instincts know where you need to go. Trust that not only is it ok, it is encouraged that you relax and enjoy it all. You are in a great place in your life now. Don’t be scared anymore. Take risks where you feel it is appropriate. Do not let conditioned fears ruin your life. Yes, it might get tough, but you have the skills, knowledge, and experience to overcome anything. Trust that you have the strength you need, and be confident in yourself. Confidently allow yourself to be vulnerable. Always holding back from speaking your truth creates an illusion of safety, but you will finally feel free when you can share your authentic truth with the world. There will be nothing left to hide, and only more to experience. The crystals made me feel like we are really enjoying the summer weather this week, and the first line of the Lizard Spirit card says “When was the last time you basked in the sun and allowed yourself to daydream, to imagine who you might be and who you might become?”. This week is important for spending time in nature, at a beach or on the grass, and feel the warmth of the sun, and let your mind wander and dream. That’s where the best insights and inspirations come from. We are dreaming a new existence into reality, all of us together. Imagine how beautiful it can be, if we all dream a beautiful dream? If we all worked together in mutual harmony, for the benefit of all? Visualizing is so important right now, make sure your mindset is on positivity. This is a great time for business inspirations, but also creative ones too! Poetry, music, art, sports. Let yourself truly experience each moment fully and appreciate the revelations that come along. Dream it and be it. Never stop dreaming bigger. Stop focusing on what is wrong, and look at all the things that are right, and all the things you can make better. Honor and trust your ability to dream new dreams, and be new things. We move into a powerful Full Moon and eclipse next week, so use this week to enjoy and get grounded and prepared for things to shift! Have a beautiful week!

New Moon in Aries – April 11, 2021

On Sunday, April 11, the first New Moon of Spring peaks at 8:30pm here in Alberta, Canada, at 22 degrees Aries. Aries is the 1st sign of the Zodiac and is a Cardinal Fire sign, which is all about leadership, courage, and moving forward. 🌑♈️🔥🐏

A New Moon represents the start of a lunar cycle, so this is a huge time of new beginnings and fresh starts. We are entering into a new phase of our life… a new chapter. This New Moon is a blank slate, a chance to start over again. We get to choose what we do with it. 💃💇‍♀️🧘

Make sure you use this opportunity to make everything more beautiful. Speak softly and encouragingly to yourself… make strong and positive choices that benefit your well-being… stay true to the things you want and where you want to be. 💞👩‍💻👩‍🎨

At the time of this New Moon, we have Venus, Mercury, Chiron, the Sun, and the Moon, all in the sign of Aries, making for some strong fire energy. The energy of fire is about passion, moving forward, and allowing our desires, rather than our fears, to guide the way. 🔥👩‍❤️‍💋‍👨

Fire energy can be impulsive, which can actually help us to move forward and shift out of any stagnancy we may be experiencing. 🙋‍♀️😴

This New Moon brings strong forward-moving energy. Use courage and good judgment to take advantage of opportunities, especially for personal growth. This Moon is great for overcoming personal limitations, such as shyness and depression. It is also good for breaking barriers to progress! 🏃‍♀️👍

If you have an opportunity that you are hesitating on because it seems out of your comfort zone, now is the time to overcome that. Making choices to get out of your comfort zone can help you grow immensely as a person and see more of your true potential. You will be much better off taking chances than continuing to do what you have always done. 🗣👫🥀

You don’t need to live in fear. Have optimism that you can handle anything, and that things will work out. Whatever you are pursuing, have confidence and go for it. Have a beautiful, and fiery, New Moon! 🌑✨💫🔥💥

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of February 15, 2021

The crystals I am working with for the week are Jasper Mookaite, Aragonite, and Bronzite. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystal to you.

Jasper Mookaite – Increases self-confidence, self-worth, and realizing one’s full potential. An ideal tool for overcoming procrastination by revealing the true reason for avoiding certain tasks and bringing the motivation needed. Its constant energy keeps one focused and grounded while soothing the mind and quieting distracting thoughts. It is great for focusing on a specific goal or for a motivational boost in the workplace. It emanates the energy of animal knowing, or instinct, and may be used to amplify one’s own instincts when making decisions.

Aragonite – Encourages conservation and caring for the Earth. Assists healing and balancing of the emotional body, and help you to overcome stress and anxiety. They send light out in a variety of different directions, to create an outcome of heightened light and energy in their surroundings. They relieve anger and resentment, and they are known to help you if you have anxiety, stress or other negative emotional feelings. Increases energy. Boosts self-confidence and feelings of self-worth.

Bronzite – Promotes peace and harmony, increases compassion and forgiveness. Helps you stay calm, maintain composure and harness your temper. Helps boost harmonious energy. Helps fatigue.

We are feeling so tired and depleted of energy! Covid is dragging on and on… things are so restrictive and making money just isn’t happening the way it used to. People are feeling the stress and anxiety. The message I have been getting is that we need to get creative in coming up with ideas to generate income. I always seem to have this outlook that earning money is so “hard”…. but why? Why do I think that? Why do I not believe in my worth and value? Why do I not believe I will be fully supported by the Universe? Why do I not believe that I am truly deserving of limitless abundance? Why??? I’m not exactly sure of the answer to that, but all that really matters is the realization that I don’t have to have that outlook anymore! My new outlook: Making money is easy! Money comes to me easily! People are happy to pay me for my talents. Truly believe that you are deserving of being showered in money, because you are!! How can you follow your passion and create a niche for earning money? Believe in yourself and realize your full potential! Stop procrastinating, and just do it. Get creating. Get experience. This is a great time to be setting positive goals for the future. The Aragonite is healing us and our surroundings. We need to let go of the resentments. Honestly. Keep trying to let them go for good. Spend time relaxing and allowing yourself to heal. You need to let go of stress and negativity, so you can have the energy you need you need to more forward. Believe in yourself. You can do this. Stay calm and composed. You can handle whatever challenges arise. Have compassion and forgiveness. Promote peace and harmony. You get to direct the energy of your life, making it harmonious! Let’s see what the cards say!

These cards are beautiful. We got the lucky Rabbit! Not only is it a time of luck, but it’s also a sign of Spring! The Rabbit is leading you out of the darkness and into the light. Life is a fertile and beautiful experience, but you can’t see that if you hide yourself away. Take risks in being vulnerable and creating new things! This is a new time, a new beginning. Spring is the best for that! Whatever you plant, whatever you are working hard towards, will be bountiful. There are no mistakes.. only tremendous possibility. Have trust and faith in life, and let yourself be playful. The Pig is very interesting to me, because I was dreaming about it last night. It’s odd, this week I’ve been dreaming, and then remembering my dreams during the day when I do a certain task. When I saw this Pig card, I remembered I was dreaming about a Pig. This card is about using our mind wisely. Are you using it to worry and feel resentful and dwell on the past? Or are you using your mind to dream, create, love, and think positively? Look at the energy on the Crown and 3rd eye Chakras. Use your mind and intuition to help you! Use it to create and manifest. This is about finding intelligent solutions to your problems. This is about expanding our mind even farther, being open and receptive to learning more, and becoming more. Use your mind to generate ideas and formulate plans. Anything is possible, if this Pig can learn to fly. Otter Spirit is here to comfort us, and remind us that we are never alone. Even if we are separated from people we love, the bonds and connections are always there. Spirit is always with us, guiding us. You have many friends and community members that appreciate you and love you. Lean on friends for support and encouragement during this time. Be present with those you care about and make time for them. When you do reach out to your friends, you will be reminded how many people truly love you. You are never alone, ever. You are always loved. See the love available in all directions. Have a beautiful week!

Saturn Square Uranus – February 17, June 14, & December 24, 2021

February 17, 2021, we have our first of three Saturn Square Uranus transits for this year. Saturn Square Uranus is a major planetary aspect that occurs every 14 years. Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius and has a huge impact in the astrology of 2021.🪐✨

We can’t keep escaping life and the damage we’ve done. When life would get too much… when we didn’t want to face reality… we would escape it and get away. Now…. we can’t really do that. We have to face ourselves and our lives. The Universe is forcing us to get in check with what is really happening in our life. We have to face our truth and really work towards what makes us happy. If you weren’t happy with your home life before Covid, it’s probably not been a very fun time. That’s what this is all about. Forcing us to face what needs changing, wether we like it or not. It’s time to do things differently, and we can’t ignore the message. We have to make the changes we need… especially if they are hard. If we keep doings things the same way we always have, then nothing changes… We have the capability to make things better, so why waste the opportunity? Are you truly happy with yourself and your life? What could you do to feel happier? What could you do to help the Earth or make the world a better place? What is possible for you? Find the opportunity within the restriction.🌸💐

This is a new time! This is the Aqe of Aquarius. This is the time to stand in your power. You DO have the power to create the life you desire.🌹

Whatever themes or projects you start around the date of this first direct square, will be part of your life throughout 2021.👫🪴🏡

Pay attention to the houses Saturn and Uranus are transiting in your Natal chart, if you want to know which areas of your life might be impacted. (If you want help with this, message me!)

For example, for myself, my Saturn is in the 4th house of Home and Family. I can worry too much and I have a need to control everything and protect my home. Uranus is in my 5th house, the house of Pleasure, Knowledge, and Creativity. This helps me find the pleasure in the small things. This is definitely a theme for me… that I have a lot of responsibility to home and family, but yet, I seek that balance of freedom and personal happiness. I know I need to have more fun and joy in my life. I do find joy in my creative endeavours, which I definitely plan to do more of in 2021! The lesson for me… is more joy. That, I can try to do.😎

Face whatever challenges you and adapt to it. Create a structure and routine that incorporates the changes you need to make. Get creative and innovate. Try new things. You never know where it might take you. Change is not only possible… it’s inevitable. Find some ways to make it fun!🌈💃

The Great Saturn/Jupiter Conjunction & Winter Solstice – December 21, 2020

Welcome to the new Age of Aquarius! ♒️🌬

Jupiter and Saturn meet roughly every 20 years, due to Jupiter’s orbit of less than 12 years around the sun lining up with Saturn’s, which is 29.5 years long. This event marks the official shift from a 200 year period during which Jupiter and Saturn made conjunctions primarily in Earth signs into a 200 year period of conjunctions in Air signs, marking the start of a new era in a larger 800 year cycle.

This conjunction is occurring at 0 degrees Aquarius. Aquarius is the sign of social change, humanitarianism, and justice.

Jupiter signifies expansion and growth, while Saturn represents limitation and structure. There are a lot of limitations right now, but it’s all about what you make of it. You do have a choice. This is all about how we handle our own expansion, and reevaluating where our own limitations are. Do we let people hold us down? Does our own perspective hold us back? This is a new beginning. This is a chance for us to come together in a positive, forward thinking way. We are stepping into our power and understanding that it is our own choosing that decides how our future unfolds. What decisions are you going to make for yourself going forward? What choices are the best for the greatest good of all? How can we bring our ideas together and work to make our planet a better place to live? We are leaving a focus on materialism, control, and hierarchies, and we are entering a time of decentralization and spirituality. We have levelled up. That’s the whole point of cycles, to continue growing and evolving. Yes, stuff is messed up right now… but what are you going to do about it? What are WE going to do about it? Are you going to wallow and exude negativity? Or are you going to find a way, and make your world a beautiful place anyway? Can we work together to make everyone’s world beautiful? How can we think in new ways?

Having Winter Solstice on the same day as the Great Conjunction? It truly is a fresh start… a clean slate. This is a turning point in the darkness. You get to choose who you are and what you are about.

You already know what you have to do… you know where you are headed. You just have to keep being brave, putting yourself out there, and showing the Universe you are ready… because you are.

You, just as you are.

Let’s walk into this new age together. 👫🪐✨

Full Buck Moon in Capricorn with Lunar Eclipse – July 4, 2020

We have a beautiful Full Buck Moon in Capricorn, with a Lunar Eclipse, while the planets are “parading”, many are in retrograde, and it’s American Independence Day! I can already feel the energy!! 🌕🦌✨

We should be able to see the Lunar Eclipse here in North America, the max view for Alberta is 10:29pm. It will start around 10:15pm and end around 11:50pm. It is not a full eclipse, only part of the Moon will catch the Earth’s shadow, so it will not be completely black and may be very subtle.

2020 has been a crazy year, and in September, the energy is going to intensify again with Mars retrograde, and another eclipse season starting in November. Normally, we have 4 eclipses in a year, but this year we have 6.

We are currently in the Sirius Gateway from July 2-7. Sirius is our “Spiritual Sun” and is beaming energy down to Earth to help us. Sirius energy is magical. Did you see my post about seeing my last name everywhere! There is so much magic and beautiful energy now. This is a perfect time to nourish and recharge. The energy is very strong, and we are receiving intuitive guidance and spiritual downloads.

The Full Moon is the perfect time to release whatever you have been holding onto. If you wrote down intentions during the New Moon, the Full Moon is the perfect time to burn them and release them to the Universe with faith that they will be fulfilled. Wether we like it or not, this Full Moon/Eclipse is going to take away whatever is no longer necessary in our lives. It will be easier if you allow things to flow and change, and fall away as needed, instead of resisting. Trust that whatever is happening is for a reason. Embrace it with hope and faith.

The energy lightens up as we move toward Leo season July 22, and we should get a bit of a reprieve until September.

Enjoy these magical Moon vibes!! 🌕✨💫

15 Tips for Relaxation – How real people, and especially moms, find relaxation and stress relief

Image

This is exactly how I feel when I go to the dentist these days, something I hated before is now like a mini vacation, Lol. Frustration is an emotion I seem to be struggling with a lot lately. I find it hard to find time for myself and for stress relief techniques, heck, I feel like I am lucky to get through the week and keep up with just the regular things. Every now and then, I find a moment to do something that I am passionate about or that makes me feel good and relieves stress. Writing this blog right now after my children just went to bed, and before my boyfriend gets home from work, is one of those little things that bring me happiness and feels right, and lets me have a moment to myself to process my thoughts and feelings. I wanted to see what other people, and especially moms, had to say about their favorite things they look forward to, that bring them happiness and stress relief. Here are what some people said, and they are in no particular order:

1. Getting hair and/or nails done

2. Hot bubble bath – The Stress Relief Bath Soak Salts, especially the Eucalyptus Spearmint scent from Bath and Body Works are amazing and the best I have tried!! They will relax you! Also, I will never live without a Jacuzzi tub again.

3. Exercise – Walking, running, yoga… – I sure love my Wii Fit. The best yoga for me.

4. Watching something funny – Funny videos online, Ellen, Americas Funniest Home Videos, Ridiculousness, anything that gets you chuckling.

5. Shop online, or go out shopping and buy yourself a treat, such as clothing or something that makes you feel good and new.

6. Writing down your feelings and throwing them away/burning it.

7. Go for a drive – And rock out! Go find somewhere beautiful to take pictures or just to enjoy! A good suggestion was to take the kids out of the city and find some horses and cows for them to look at! Great idea Tonielle!!!

8. Get a coffee

9. Take photos, paint, make music or make a collage vision board – Do anything creative!

10. Have a visit with another mom and kids, and have a treat like a snack or coffee!

11. Get a massage

12. Focus on your breathing/Meditate

13. Lay in bed and read

14. Check out vacations or take a virtual vacation online – Thank you Google earth!

15. Visit family

As you can see, there are some great ideas, and definitely some things I would like to try to do more of. Thank you so much to everyone who gave me feedback and input, it is greatly appreciated! I hope you liked my blog. Thank you for stopping by!
