New Moon in Gemini with Total Solar Eclipse – June 10, 2021

We have a New Moon in Gemini with a Total Solar Eclipse coming up June 10th! 🌚✨ Peak time for the New Moon in Alberta (MDT) is 3:54am, with max eclipse time 4:41 am, although it will only be visible if you are far enough North. It will be fully visible from parts of Russia, Greenland, and northern Canada. Northern Asia, Europe, and the United States will see a partial eclipse.

Our New Moon is at 19 Degrees Gemini. It’s Gemini season! Gemini deals with intellect, curiosity, communication, and play.

Solar eclipses are like a New Moon on steroids. Make sure you are setting clear intentions for the type of life and energy you want going forward. This is another chance to start again… and yes, we’ve had lots, and we will continue to have lots, but every small change you make matters.

We have been pondering and evaluating who we are now, and what do we want out of life? Things are going to be actively shifting and changing, and there are going to be discussions and decisions to be made. We have a lot of options though, so it’s normal to feel a little overwhelmed.. especially when we wish we could see the complete picture right now. Get comfortable being a little uncomfortable.

Try to let go of the stress by holding faith in the Universe. There is no rushing ahead, we must have patience. We are extra intuitive and sensitive with the opposition of Neptune in Pisces. Keep reminding yourself that things are coming together, and feel your way through it. Follow your intuition when it encourages you to try new things.

Mercury is conjunct to the Sun and Moon on this day, meaning right next to them, and Mercury is currently retrograde. This is going to intensify communications. It’s up to you if you allow that to be in a positive or negative way. Stay out of the arguments and power struggles. Remember that there is nothing to be won or lost. Stay in your own energy and keep it as high as you can.

This is a time to have patience and to go with the flow, as the pieces start coming together. We can’t see the whole picture now, but we can choose to put together the pieces we do have with love and intention.

This is going to be a good time to chat with your friends and ponder all the questions of life. It’s also going to be a good time to be creative and read or write… or do a Moon Magic Worksheet!! Learning should be enjoyable and fun.

Things are going to be speeding up, so try to enjoy a little rest, relaxation, play, and exploration while you can.

If you want a Moon Magic Worksheet, let me know! carrielynngallop@hotmail.com

Have a magical New Moon Eclipse! 🌑✨💫

Full Blood Super Flower Moon in Sagittarius – May 26, 2021

The Full Moon on May 26 will be a Full Blood Super Flower Moon with Total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius at 5 degrees. It’s called a Blood Moon because the Moon will appear red in color in areas where you can see the Total Eclipse. Although here in Alberta, we won’t be able to see the Total Eclipse, we will be able to see part of it, with peak viewing time for Edmonton/Lloydminster at 5:09am, although it begins at 2:47am, on May 26. The Full Moon itself peaks at 5:14am (MDT). 🌕✨💫♐️

This is a huge Moon for us. I always feel this calling from the future, but I really believe that a shifting and turning point is upon us. This is a time for us to let go of the past and everything that no longer serves us, so we can look to the future with optimism and hope. We have to let go of the trauma from the past, and believe in a better way forward. We especially, have to believe and trust in ourselves and our potential.

We have to let go of the stress and pressure we put on ourselves for perfection. There is no such thing, and you need to let that idea go. Instead, enjoy the moments. Laugh, take an adventure, and be happy. We have to exude the type of vibration that we want coming back to us.

We are in eclipse season and things are going to be shifting and changing rapidly, especially between now and the next New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse. We have to get some closure and lighten our load. We have to go with the flow a little more, and let go of the need to try to control outcomes.

This is an important time to listen to your own intuition, and not follow the crowd. Especially when it comes to the New Moon, things won’t always be what they seem, so we need to be keen and rely on our own instincts to direct us. Truths and realities may be coming to light. This can be truths such as love being expressed and new relationships formed, or truths that cause relationships to dissipate, in love or business. What’s important is that we are doing what’s best for our highest good and aligned with what we believe in and want for our future.

We need to see ourselves in a new light and focus on new goals that set us on path to attain all that we desire. We need to truly believe we are deserving of all the good things.

We are going to feel like taking an adventure and being free, so make sure to incorporate that in some way, even if it’s just a backyard campout or a hike close to home. Find space within the limitations that are surrounding us. Make your own happiness and tend to it like a flame.

If you need to make waves in order to be heard and create positive change, that’s fine, just make sure it’s well thought out. You don’t want to push boundaries that aren’t necessary right now. Focus on preparing yourself and expanding your mind. This is a good time to prepare things you may want to say. You could also take a course, write that book, or try your hand at a new hobby.

This is also an excellent time to get physical activity and take care of your health. Get those checkups and take care of yourself well. Show the Universe how good you intend to take care of you, so it showers you with love and care too.

My Moon Magic Worksheet reminded me of how protected we are during this time. Believe it to be true, and do what you can to protect your energy too!

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!

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! 🌷🌞🌱

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!

Full Cold Moon in Cancer – December 29, 2020

We have a Full Cold Moon in the sign of Cancer on Tuesday, December 29, 2020, peaking at 8:30pm MST here in Alberta. 🌕✨❄️ It’s fitting after all the intense energies we’ve had lately, that this is more of a relaxing moon. It’s energy is very feminine, nurturing, loving and caring. It might get emotional, so make sure to rest and observe the emotions that arise. Take good care of yourself. This is a moon to do all your releasing for the year. Let everything go upon the full moon. This is a time to start fresh… just in time for the new year. We are all changing, growing, and evolving so quickly. Things might seem bleak right now, but there is so much promise and hope for the future. There are opportunities and rewards on the way for us. Things are going to change in positive ways. One thing that came up a lot when I was creating the Moon Magic Worksheet is purity and innocence. We are truly getting back to the people we were meant to be all along. You can always begin again, no matter how far you’ve fallen… and this is your chance to do so. You have to be strong and believe in yourself. This moon has a positive sextile aspect to Uranus, which brings intuition, excitement, and stimulating encounters! The moon is also in positive aspect to a star that brings good health, honor, riches, pleasure, and domestic benefits. That sounds pretty good to me! Lol. The point is that you need to stay positive, stay open… stay ready for life to deliver you these gifts and encounters. If you are stuck in a negative mindset.. if you are hiding yourself away.. you are putting up blocks to abundance. Believe they are on the way. Be open and ready. Behave in a way that is deserving, and make positive life choices. Be reminded of the blessings already present in your life. Be grateful for your home and family. Believe in the good things to come. Hold on to hope and love. Take care of yourself and honor your needs. You don’t need to prove yourself to anybody… you only need to soothe your own soul. It doesn’t matter what anyone else says… it matters what is in your heart, what you believe about yourself. Let everything that’s been weighing you down go upon the full moon. Write down what you want to release and burn it. Make sure to clean and organize your home too. Let’s get right and rock 2021. ❤️🌕🥂💪

If you want a copy of my Moon Magic Worksheet, the cost is $5 (cdn). Message me if you are interested!

The Moon Magic Worksheet is a 4 page PDF document filled with items and properties that resonate with this full moon. It has affirmations, journal prompts, goal setting questions, a card pull, ideas to celebrate the moon, and more! It will help you organize your thoughts and set intention to them. It will help you recognize synchronicities that come with this full moon! It will help you understand the energy we are moving through. It is very casual, and something for you to sit with while you honor the moon. It is simply a guide to help us all learn, and connect to the moon!

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of June 11, 2017

Oh my gosh you guys! I’m so sorry I’ve been on a hiatus again.. for over a month! It’s now been one year since my son was diagnosed with Leukemia, he was 3 at the time. I just happened to be organizing pictures from my cell phone, and it was like re-living those days. We are still living those days, although things are going well and we get are getting through this thing. I have been feeling so overwhelmed with how far we’ve come, and how far there is yet to go. I guess I was feeling a little overwhelmed with life in general. Just the everyday mom duties were taking a toll, and I was feeling uninspired and run down. I just knew in my heart is was ok to take a break. I know nobody probably cares anyway!! I didn’t know how long I needed, but I knew I would be back when I was ready. Let me tell you, it’s been a slow process getting this reading done. The energy is still a bit heavy. I have been learning a lot lately, I have been taking a Certified Mediumship Course with Carmel Baird, and I think my mind and body just needed time to integrate everything I’ve been learning. It’s been a lot. The astrology readings I’ve seen lately go along with this energy, so I’m just trying to accept it how it is and try to nurture myself (I wrote this before doing my reading… nurture is definitely a key word this week!). So thank you for your understanding! Thank you for being here to read my blog! I truly appreciate it!! Let see what the message is for the week. 


The crystals I am working with for the week are Tree Jasper, Lava Rock, and Rainbow Moonstone. 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 crystals to you. 


Tree Jasper – The “supreme nurturer”. It holds and supports during times of stress, bringing a sense of completeness and tranquillity. Used to help with dream recall and shamanic journeying, it is a stone of protection and absorbs all types of negative energies. Balances the physical, mental and emotional bodies. It is a stone of strength, courage and determination. Jasper stimulates creativity and imagination, encouraging ideas into action. It can really assist people who need more focus, organization abilities, and motivation. 


Lava Rock – Grounds and calms the emotions. A stone of rebirth and shedding unneeded layers of emotional attachment. Lava stones are good for stabilizing and grounding because of the strong connection to the Earth and it’s creation within the centre of Earth. In folk remedies, it was given to soldiers to help them remain calm during battle. A stone of courage and gives people stability as they go through changes in their lives. When a person is drawn to lava rock it might be because they need the fire or energy in their life.


Rainbow Moonstone – Has a gentle, calming energy. It helps to strengthen intuition and psychic perception, and enhances creativity, compassion, endurance and inner confidence. It is a stone that brings balance, harmony, and hope. The Rainbow effect brings in a spectrum of light, and can help with clearing and bringing in uplifting energies. It has been said to have the power to grant wishes. Rainbow Moonstone encourages introspection, yielding easier decision making. It also enhances one’s emotional vision, bringing greater creative abilities and freedom of expression. This is enhanced by Rainbow Moonstone’s ability to open one up to increased synchronicity that we often cannot see due to being wrapped up in our daily routines. Rainbow Moonstone can also offer increased patience and allowing, so those newly found synchronicities can flow into our lives unimpeded. A stone of intuition and insight, Moonstone helps us to connect to all the different cycles we experience in life. Moonstone helps balance the emotional body, especially any aggressive tendencies. Many people find moonstone to be very soothing and use it to help relieve stress.

The crystals are telling me we’ve been a bit stressed out.. We need to cool it and calm down a bit! We need to ground and nurture ourselves. We are working and pushing so hard, there’s a lack of balance. What we need to do is find our calm. Our inner zen. Our place where we can just let life and inspiration flow. We need to spend more time nurturing our creativity. That’s how the heart expresses itself and releases energy. There is a lot of Earth energies within the crystals too, so we need to be nurtured by the Earth, and in turn be inspired to create. Relax a bit. Stop and smell the flowers. Feel the breeze on your face. Don’t be so wrapped up in life that you miss the synchronicities, because they will be there! Watch for the Earth signs, the animal signs, the songs, the things that mean something to you. I promise there is a deeper meaning, and all you have to do is be open, notice, and appreciate the signs. We are changing and growing and birthing new ideas, and that can always be scary and stressful. Find ways to get creative and release that stress, and share your creations with world! Let’s see which cards are chosen for this week.


The cards confirm that we are in a period of transforming and growing, shapeshifting. Every moment we move, learn and grow. Try not to worry when things get tough, because just like the clouds, things will continue to shift. I love that there was the Moonstone crystal and a Moon card! The New Moon card show us there is so much beauty and promise on the horizon. Just try to relax and enjoy the view! We don’t need to be so angry and worked up all the time. We can calmly speak up and express ourselves. We can make our boundaries clear with those around us who push us and try to take advantage of us. Do not internalize this anymore. Speak up for yourself. Take your power back. If we don’t speak up for ourselves, who will? How will people know how to treat us or what to expect from us? Are you just going to keep letting life and other people take control? Or are you going to take your power back, and do what it takes for you to be whole, and happy? If you don’t ask, nobody will ever answer you. Although this week is still a bit rocky, things are shifting, and there is beauty and promise of new beginnings on the horizon. Just try to stay calm and let the dark clouds dissipate, and stay in your power by being true to you. 


Clouds (Shapeshifting) – When tiny droplets of water or frozen crystals are surrounded by billions of other droplets or crystals, a cloud is formed. Each of these tiny droplets diffuse and scatter light so that the tops of the clouds are white then fade to gray towards the base. The nature of cloud formations affects our mood as well as the temperature on the ground and in the air. Their shape, movement, and colouration tell us what weather to expect in the near future, and they nourish our visual hunger during breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. Most of us have had an opportunity at one time or another to notice the shapes and forms clouds take as a drift gently or boldly across the sky, constantly shifting and changing, adjusting themselves to the requirements of their nature. When we take time to simply observe, we can see the cloud people – images that are an elegant collaboration between nature and our imagination. In both subtle and more dramatic ways, you can shape shift your choice of clothing, hairstyle, adornments, and even mannerisms (such as facial expression, gestures, and the way you walk). By adjusting these along with your internal attitude, you can actually display different personas. When you experiment with these variations of self-expression that are not how you ordinarily present your self, others will react to you, depending on the degree in which your persona contrast with the one they are most for familiar with. Be like the clouds as you try out different forms, stretching your limits at times, willing to move and adjust as necessary. Lift your head up, square your shoulders, and stand tall such that your chest and heart open to the world, and note how this feels. You may feel vulnerable at first, but stay with it. Then let your shoulders fall forward slightly, pull your chest inward an inch or two, and let your head drop a little, observe how this feels. Experiment with contracting your aura, (your energy field), then expand it as far as you comfortably can. By this kind of shape shifting you can consciously choose your expression into the world. Just remember who you are at the core.


New Moon (Promise) – Gazing at the sliver of the new moon smiling down upon them, the couple embraces each other, welcoming the promise of their love. The fading sun drapes the clouds and waters with a tinge of luminescence, as the crescent opens its arms to the nearby planet Venus, named after the Roman goddess of love. This is a time for manifestation, beginnings, and renewal, with the promise that our desires will come to fruition. Here Grandmother Moon initiates another lunar cycle, moving from darkness to fullness and back again over approximately one month. Her promise of what is to come is embedded in the first glimmer of her light as she emerges from behind the curtain of darkness that had recently encompassed her. It is a promise that has been kept for as long as she has existed. This is the time to launch and project, a new relationship, or renew something that has been put aside for a later date. With your intention and willingness to allow a full cycle to complete itself, that which you desire will manifest. The seed of that idea is ready to emerge from the darkness of your subconscious into your full awareness. The next step is to put into action what is required to fully realize this idea. A promise has two meanings: It can be a commitment and guarantee to yourself (or someone else) that a particular thing will happen, or it can apply that something specific is expected to happen. When your will is aligned with the will of Spirit and your attention is focused upon what you wish to have happen, there will be fulfillment, and the promise is kept.


Polar Bear – When you express yourself from your heart AND from a place of power, it’s an unbeatable combination. You don’t need to growl or bully, nor do you need to fade into the background and deny yourself the opportunity to directly affect the situation. By showing up and being completely present, even when you’re simply listening, you’re a force to be reckoned with. Ask for what you want, and see what happens. Don’t get worked up about how it turns out. You may or may not get what you want, but at least your chances are much better if you ask. As for setting boundaries with others (such as saying no to request or demand) when you do so, they may respect those boundaries or try to test them. If they do test the limits you’ve set, stand your ground, be clear, and don’t apologize. Approach the situation with the purity and innocence of a child and the focussed intensity of a true warrior – one who doesn’t speak or act from anger, but from a place of truth and dignity. Know that when you do so, you’ll have nothing to fear. Associations: Fearlessness; Purity; Leadership; Powerful; Provider; Self-control; Strength; Wisdom; Nobility; Conservation; Intensity; Playfulness; Adaptability

Angel Card Reading – Week of Feb 21, 2016

  

I used this card deck a month ago… And look what showed up again this time! The Full Moon card. It will be a full moon tomorrow, February 22nd, so we are likely already feeling the effects, and will into the early week. I have been extremely tired and irritable! So let’s look deeper into what the cards are telling us for this week. The first card Crystals, relates to the intensity of the full moon, and reminds us of the power in this time. Doreen Virtue’s reading today spoke of how our psychic senses and abilities would be enhanced during this full moon, and I believe this card completely coincides with this. I recently started working full time again, and I was concerned that when I did this, I would lose time and attention towards my reiki, and spiritual practice. It sure has been lacking… Doing reiki on myself once a week, if I’m lucky, is just not going to cut it. I feel myself sliding back to complacency… So this card is a perfect reminder that you get what you focus on. It’s a reminder to nourish our spiritual selves, and think as positively as possible, so that we can support wonderful manifestation in our lives. Try out a crystal! Even browse some pics, and spend some time just looking at the images, and seeing how you feel inside and how you can connect to it. Better yet, go outside and touch a tree, and breath in nature’s fresh air. Don’t let life run you over. Stop and take charge of your life, and do what’s right for you. Spend the time on what’s important to you. This is the time to release what no longer serves us, release it all to the full moon, and focus on moving ahead. Committing to where we want to go, and not focusing on where it is that we don’t. The third card, Music (Harmony) confirms for me that after this full moon, we will feel more in harmony with the world around us. Doreen’s reading spoke of new beginnings awaiting us later this week, and I believe this card coincides with that as well. Although this feeling won’t last, as it never does, we are reminded to capture the emotion we feel when things are smooth and happy, and try to harness that feeling next time things seem to be going wrong. Life is a perpetual lesson.. Learning to harness our emotions and patience is a huge lesson. I am reading Sylvia Browne’s book “Insight”, and she speaks of how tough our existence on Earth is, it is a place of learning and growth, because “what have you learned from the easy times?” It’s very true. So know that things may come up in the future that push your buttons and get under your skin.. But the more we can harness our positive emotions and use those when outside circumstances seem to be bringing us down, the more we will be able to conquer the lessons we are here to learn. We must learn to draw our happiness from inside ourselves. Music is a huge resource for me, when I’m feeling down, listening to music that reminds me of certain things is a way I bring my feelings back to a happy state. So for this week, focus in on any guidance or feelings you have, especially for the next few days, release anything that no longer serves you to the full moon, and move forward in your life more harmoniously! 

Crystals – Focus – Here we see an amethyst crystal cave bathed in water from a river, the points of light representing the spiritual force that these crystal beings generate. Amethyst, as well as other types of quartz crystals, have been used for thousands of years in magic and healing, as well as for intensifying psychic capabilities. Since it’s violet color is the same as the crown chakra, it has often been referred to as a spiritual stone. The nature of Quartz crystals, the second most common element in earths crust, is that they help focus the power of our life force, or spirit. Where attention goes, power flows, and crystals magnify this power tenfold. Our intention influences where our attention goes. When we’re consciously aware of our intention, it facilitates the focus of that spiritual power and supports the manifestation in material reality of that intention.

It is time to bring your complete focus to the subject of your inquiry. Eliminate all distractions, and give this your undivided attention. Whether this is a project, relationship, or simply a relaxing time spent walking in nature, be fully present to the situation. The sharpening of focus will expand your awareness and allow your inner guidance to penetrate your consciousness, which can then be parlayed into appropriate action. By being focused with crystal clarity, you are in the flow of your life force and, in fact, have become one with it. It is not a hypervigilant or tension filled state, but one of relaxed attention. Keep your eyes, ears, and heart focused on that what you need to pay attention to, and miracles can be created. To paraphrase a fictional Elder, “use the force”, and use it in life enhancing ways.

Full Moon – Completion – Every 29.5 days grandmother moon shines bright and full in the sky, illuminating the landscape with her muted brilliance, casting a delicate canopy over the sky and the physical features of earth. Having gradually etched her way over the last two weeks to fullness, she now stands like a guiding beacon in the night. She has completed this round of her perpetual and periodic monthly journey, and will now start her slow but steady retreat into shadow. In this card, we see the grandeur of the moon at its peak, blazing brightly and creating a silhouette of a tree. This beautiful orb reminds us that all cycles have their time of completion and fulfillment, one that will inevitably be followed by a decrease until yet another cycle is initiated.

You can now take pleasure in knowing that whatever you have been working toward has now reached its culmination. It may have been a relatively brief cycle or a much more extensive one, yet regardless of the length of time you have arrived at the stage of completion. Let yourself feel the contentment and satisfaction of this accomplishment. It is like when you take a deep breath and reach the point where your lungs are pleasantly full and your body is ready to release that breath. It is important not only to enjoy this completion but also to let go and allow yourself to relax afterwards, just like exhaling slowly and consciously. People are much too eager to rush to the next item on the agenda without giving proper time and space to appreciating and honoring the natural cycle of release that follows a point of resolution. Give yourself the time to relax and rest before tackling spirits next assignment.

Music – Harmony – Ah, Music! What would life be like without it? It’s not something that we humans invented, rather, music has been around since time began. Subtle and dramatic textures of sound have existed as long as there have been beings that could hear them. For our ancient ancestors, paying close attention to sounds, rhythms, and vibrations from the environment help them survive. Of course, it has also been compelling for humanity to create music through our own voice and musical instruments. As we have evolved, so have the instruments we’ve created, some of which when played mimic the music of the natural world. Where there is more than one instrument played or two or more people singing, the resulting harmonies blend into one unified sound that is pleasing to the ear. If the notes are out of sync, there’s a notable dissonance that can be disturbing. Here, we see two women with stringed instruments creating a harmonious blend. They’re so absorbed in their playing that they appear to be in a trance, as if they’re simply allowing the music to flow through them.

This is the time of considerable harmony for you, one where the various elements in your life are flowing together smoothly. Just as in musical harmony, it is that interface of these elements that merge into a cycle of symmetry and balance that evokes feelings of harmony. The challenge is to sustain this inner accord even when there is considerable dissonance outside of your own heart, mind, and body. Note the sensations, emotions, and thoughts you experience when everything seems to be moving along well. Take three deep breaths, and let your breathing be the anchor that reminds you of the state of consciousness. Whenever you perceive chaos around you, know that it is a mirror for your inner turmoil. When you recognize this, take three or more breaths to bring forth the memory of those moments when your life was a symphony. Then every time you exhale, you are releasing the energy of your internal state of harmony into the world and it will have amazing effects.
