Weekly Card Reading – Week of April 11, 2021

The crystals I am working with for the week are Aventurine, Fancy Jasper, and Prehnite. 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.

Aventurine – Known as the “Stone of Opportunity”. Thought to be the luckiest of all crystals, especially in manifesting prosperity and wealth, or for increasing favor in competitions or games of chance. This beautiful stone, however, is not merely an attractor of luck, but one that aligns conditions to be favourable for opportunities. Releases old patterns, habits and disappointments so new growth can take place. It brings optimism and a zest for life, allowing one to move forward with confidence and to embrace change. It enhances one’s creativity and motivation, and encourages perseverance in maneuvering life’s obstacles.

Fancy Jasper – Brings wholeness and healing to an environment or situation. Helps with letting go of bitterness and resentment. Eliminates negativity and strengthens insight. Promotes forgiveness, peace and tranquility. Helps you to lighten up and enjoy yourself more. It can also relieve fear, guilt and frustration, building inner strength and confidence. Helps one to better connect with nature.

Prehnite – Boosts prophetic abilities. Enhances visualization and spiritual “knowing” and aids in connecting with higher realms. Helps induce lucid dreaming. Prehnite is said to “heal the Healer,” and can be used to revitalize your personal healing environment. Fosters a strong sense of trust in the Universe. As such, Prehnite stops hoarding of both possessions and of love by fostering a belief in the abundance and power of the Universe to manifest whatever is needed. It clears toxins from the body and balances the meridians. It helps you say “no”. Prehnite encourages acceptance, emotional release, forgiveness, and compassion. It helps you to remain true to self, uplift the spirit and find clarity of heart and mind.

Honestly… we are undergoing such beautiful transitions right now. It is the New Moon in Aries today, and there is so much power in the air. One of the Angels that came up on my Moon Magic Worksheet was Guardian Angel Malahidael – “Angel of Courage”, who summons the power of the sun and imparts a ray inside each person, giving them courage, stamina, and hope during difficult times. I was lying in my bed this afternoon, listening to music with my eyes closed, and then all of the sudden, the sun got so bright in my room and I felt a spear of sun go right into my heart. I could feel the light in my heart. Maybe it just felt like that because I was aware of this information, but that is pretty coincidental to actually happen to me physically, out of nowhere, on the New Moon. I really believe it is Spirit’s way of confirming that they are happy with what I am doing in sharing what I learn. These experiences are such gifts, and if I don’t document it, I might forget it! I have a lot of experiences every day, and I should document them more, but that’s another story for another day! This New Moon has brought movement, drive, and motivation. There are so many opportunities for us to pursue! This New Moon in Aries was very competitive and athletic, so it’s nice to see the Aventurine crystal here telling us that we will come out on top as winners. This is a time for us to go out there and get it. Not only are we lucky, we are prepared… we are ready… we are open and willing to accept the abundance and gifts that are coming our way. Sometimes life can be so hard… but it can’t stay like that forever…. and sometimes, it can be crazy good. Expect the miracles and blessings that are coming for you. Release those old patterns that hold you back. This is going to be good to do, especially as we lead up to a Full Scorpio Moon later this month. We have grown so much. We have to keep treating ourselves healthfully and beautifully so that we can continue to unfold. We have to believe in ourselves and in our gifts and talents. We have to believe that we are deserving of all the goodness life can bring. Be ready to move forward and embrace change. Yes, obstacles might arise, but you have what it takes to deal with them. Don’t let fear and worry hold you back from opportunity. We are healing. We are forgiving. We are learning to love ourselves better. Lighten up and enjoy yourself and your life as much as you can. If you’ve been working too much, you need to take some time to connect back to yourself and your true nature. The Prehnite is here to offer us energy for where we have felt depleted. Please accept this energy of renewal and healing. Trust in the Universe. Things are happening. Things are moving forward. Things are gonna be amazing. Let go of the fear and believe in the abundance. Know that your needs will be met and you will be provided for. Take back your power and let yourself be realigned. Say no to the things that aren’t helpful to you. Come to terms with where you’ve been and what you’ve been through, and who you are. Find clarity of what you want and be true to yourself. Uplift your Spirit and remember that it’s all good. Everything is always all good. The Unicorns have a message for us this week, so let’s see what the cards say!

Wow, such a beautiful message. The first step is the forgiveness and letting go… seeing the light within your heart and all the people around you. Understanding that we are all the same, and we are all learning the best we can. Things are you might appear dark right now, but you have so much light within yourself. Everyone has light, and they have the potential to glow like this Unicorn. The more you focus on being healthy and happy, and sharing in the health and happiness of others, the more you will see the light shine. People see you, and they can empathically know how you feel. If they see someone radiating joy and positivity, it is going to be contagious. If there is someone you are worried about, see them surrounded in light (white for protection, green for healing, blue for calm, pink for love). When you focus on seeing and feeling light, you’ll be able to tune into messages from nature even easier. I love the One Step at a Time Card, there is a fire burning within the circle of stones. This is perfect with this Aries fire energy we are in now. Our inner flame is burning bright. We are spiritually protected. Rainbows always represent joy, and good things to come after a storm. We have to take it easy on ourselves. Things have been super hard and exhausting. We have big dreams and places we want to go. Patience is one of the hardest virtues, but we have to have patience on our path and trust that we are getting where we need to be. We can’t force things or push too hard, or nothing positive can come from it. So take your time. Take in the Rainbow. Tend to your fire. We don’t have to know the whole way and have it all figured out right now. We just need to keep taking steps in the right direction. We just need to focus on ourselves and what we can do to be better today. We do not have to live life by anyone’s else’s perceptions or expectations. Listen to your intuition and what it wants to do. Do you need to relax? Do you need to get creative? Do you need to workout? Do you need to get working on a project? What do you feel inspired to do right now? Get doing it! Just keep being you and walking your path, and you will be seen, noticed, and acknowledged. The best way you can keep walking a path of good? Share. When you share, everyone feels happy. These are hard times we are in, and the way we get through them is together. Share what you have with others. Don’t hesitate to be generous. When you give away old things, new things come to you as if by magic! This is also about sharing our hearts with each other. If we keep ourselves closed off, nobody gets to see the beauty. What we have to share doesn’t have to be of of monetary value. Sharing smiles can mean everything. Let’s keep spreading the light. ❤️🙏 Have a wonderful 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! 🌷🌞🌱

New Moon in Capricorn – January 12, 2021

The New Moon peaks on January 12, 2021 at 10:00pm MST here in Alberta, and falls at 23 degrees Capricorn. 🌑💫♑️ The Sun and Moon are conjunct next to Pluto (as well as quite a few other planets), bringing us deep soul growth. Hard work gets you to the top. Taking the easy way never does. Although we are feeling driven and ready to tackle our hard work, you also have to remember not to push too hard or you could create more resistance. There’s a certain amount of going with the flow that’s required, but I guarantee you will be feeling motivated to work on yourself, your work, and your inspirations and ideas. The hard work you put in now will pay off. You can’t force change, just for the sake of change. Follow the signs and your intuition. Use your emotions to guide you on how to handle the things that aren’t feeling right in your life. Use your discretion on what opportunities to pursue. Mars square Saturn can cause frustration, but Venus trine Uranus is going to help relieve that frustration. This New Moon, we will likely be shaken from our calm, causing us to have to make a decision. It’s the way the Universe motivates us to change. Luckily, we have positive aspects that are going to offset these challenges and help us to not only overcome them, but to learn and grow from them. There is a chance for a financial windfall, so keep your intentions super positive! It’s important to stay grounded and balanced to navigate this time. Connect to the Earth, to your family, and to your roots. Remind yourself of who you truly are. Just like the Capricorn Sea-Goat can swim the deepest depths and climb the highest mountain, you too can overcome your challenges. You are strong, and have learned and changed so much. There is no going back now, only moving forward. This Moon is a perfect time to set intentions, being the 1st New Moon of the year. 📝🌑✨

If you want some help working with this New Moon or setting intentions, you can purchase my Moon Magic Worksheet for $5 (cdn)!

The Moon Magic Worksheet is a casual 4 page PDF that you can print or look at while you celebrate the Moon. It has tons of information about items and properties that relate to this New Moon. It has questions to help you set your intentions. It has affirmations, a card pull, and more! 🌑🙏🐊

Super New Moon in Virgo – September 17, 2020

We have a Super New Moon in Virgo, peaking at 5am on September 17, 2020 MST. 🌑♍️✨This is the 1st of 3 Super New Moons leading up to a total Solar New Moon Eclipse in December, which leading us to bright new beginnings. We are getting there… slowly but surely.

There’s going to be a lot of potential for anger, irritation and frustration to arise. Try your best to choose love over anger.

Virgo is the sign of the Virgin, and it’s all about independence and inner strength. We are realizing how strong we truly are, and how much power we hold to create the lives we long for.

The Moon is aligning in a 90 degree angle to the lunar nodes, causing a Moon Wobble. We may be literally feeling off balance and noticing where our lives are out of balance. This is only presenting us an opportunity to correct ourselves. Uncertainty can lead to great awakening.

We are already walking the path we need to be on, each and every day. We innately know where we are headed and what we need to do. Now we just need to handle the challenges that arise head on, and keep working towards our dreams and goals. Know that you can, and will, get through anything.

Choose where to focus your attention, and keep it positive. Prioritize your goals. Draw ideas onto paper. Plan, organize and create steps. Turn the impossible into reality. With hard work and determination.. with consistency and patience.. we will get there.

Remind yourself of your sparkles. You are an amazing creation of love and light. You are an important part of this Universe, and you are deeply connected to everything around you. Celebrate your self-worth.

There’s no point in worrying or stressing. Just handle what comes your way and keep pressing forward. Remember to set your intentions and make them clear!

Have a wonderful and blessed New Moon! 🌑🙏✨

New Moon in Taurus – April 22, 2020

Although the Moon itself is in a positive position for home life and finances, there are many challenging aspects to this Moon. 🌑💫✨ Last month’s Moon cycle was focused around healing. This month, we move into letting go of those fears and wounds for good. We are being forced to look within ourselves and make new choices for our life. We are seeing how far we’ve come and how much we’ve grown. We have the power too choose how we flow through life. We get to choose how we react to the events going on in the World. What kind of karma do you want coming back to you? The choice is yours! Not choosing is a choice too. Don’t let negativity pull you under. Remind yourself of the grace and beauty of this World, and be grateful. What are you needing to choose for yourself to be happy and healthy? What type of freedom do you need to live your full truth? The key word for this New Moon is freedom. We have so many restrictions getting to us all. How can we unlock our inner freedom? How can we create freedom right where we are? How can we free ourselves without worrying about the things (and people) we can’t control? What seeds do you want to plant for the future? Now is the time to be making a plan and taking small steps to work towards that. Finding small ways to create more freedom and joy in your life, no matter what is going on around you. Yes, there is a lot of crazy and scary things going on right now. Yes, our lives our changing rapidly… but there is so much beauty in change. As always, the energy is what you make of it! Try to make the best of it and stay positive. If you keep waiting for life to be perfect, happiness will continue to elude you. Find it right now within yourself. Create it for yourself in your daily life. It’s all up to you! You have the power to change your life. Don’t be scared of your power. Use it to conquer your fears and be happy! Life is good, no matter what. ❤️🙏✨
