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!🌈💃

Chinese New Year – Year of the Metal Ox – February 12, 2021

Chinese New Year is on February 12, 2021 and is celebrated for up to 16 days. The festival signifies the beginning of spring and a new year according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar. We are transitioning from the Year of the Rat to the Year of the Ox. The message for this year: Success will come to those who work hard. 🎎🐂🧧

The story of the Ox: According to some old mythological traditions, there was a race held by a great deity to determine which creatures, in which order, would be the namesakes of the twelve-year cycle. The race was run, and swum, the finishing line being across a great river. The Rat and the Ox crossed easily enough, the Ox due to being large, powerful, and adept both on land and in water: the Rat asked the good-natured Ox for a ride on its back, but then ungratefully jumped off at the last minute to cross the finish line first. 🐀🐂

In preparation for the new year, the Chinese will clean their homes and put up red decorations and lanterns. The celebrations will then officially kick off with a New Year’s Eve family dinner, with fish and dumplings being served to encourage prosperity. Shou Sui, which translates as “after the New Year’s Eve dinner”, follows the traditional feast, where families stay awake throughout the night and gather for fireworks at midnight to banish evil. Adults typically give children red packets containing money at Chinese New Year, to help them avoid evil and wish them good health. 🏘🎇🏮

These are things to try to avoid during Chinese New Year: Taking medicine, eating porridge, doing laundry, washing hair, using knives or scissors, leaving the house, sweeping, theft, debt, an empty rice jar, damaged clothes, animal blood, white or black clothing, giving gifts of clocks, scissors, and pears.

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! 🌑🙏🐊

If you would like a Moon Magic Worksheet, message me, leave a comment, or email carrielynngallop@hotmail.com!

Super New Moon in Scorpio – November 14, 2020

There might be a lot of crappy things happening in the world right now, but the astrology reminds us that the troubles of today will pass eventually. We need to respond with grace and faith, and keep a positive outlook! 🌈🌞

This is the 3rd and final super new moon of 2020. It’s really so simple… I mean, all we can do is keep doing what we are doing. Moving forward and staying positive. On the other hand, it’s so much more emotional, complicated, and deeper than that… which is a sure sign of Mercury and the Moon in Scorpio. ♏️ Allow this new moon to show you through this time of transformation. 🌑🔥✨

Mars just went direct in Aries, which has lasting positive effects. We are ready to move forward with power and determination.💪Jupiter and Pluto are forming their 3rd and final conjunction. Jupiter is the planet of expansion. We have learned how to adjust to changing conditions, and we understand more fully how to work with the awareness we have gained.🙌 Mercury is direct is Scorpio, making us better at expressing our emotions.👫

Deep faith is found in the darkness. If you face your fears, you will receive boundless rewards. This new moon is an emotional fresh start, and we are ready to move forward. We are going to rise, like a Phoenix from the ashes…🔥 How do you see yourself? Who do you aspire to be?

I highly recommend writing intentions and specific goals on this new moon! 🖊

Wishing you a beautiful new moon! Stay safe ❤️

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of October 4, 2020

The crystals I am working with for the week are Turritella, Ocean Jasper and Botswana Agate. 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.

Turritella – Deeply connected to the earth and home, to one’s personal roots and ancestry, even the events of one’s past. It is a survival stone, one of strength and protection. Ancient life held within its form lends the power of wisdom and healing. Protects against danger, alleviates fears, and keeps the connection to loved ones at home. Agate promotes inner stability, composure, and maturity. Its warm, protective properties encourage security and self-confidence. Agate stops the burning desires for things we do not need, and assists those juggling commitments or multiple jobs.

Ocean Jasper – Increases expression of love in words and actions. Gently brings into focus the positive aspects of one’s life. Brings relaxation and cooperation to the home or workplace. This powerful stone lifts negativity so one can fully appreciate blessings. Encourages a feeling of joy and increases optimism. Enhances your personal power, helping you understand yourself better, have greater self-confidence, self-esteem and self-worth.

Botswana Agate – A comfort stone, beneficial in overcoming depression, and being strong during grieving. It helps alleviate obsessive thoughts and destructive mental patterns, and assists in overcoming fears, such as agoraphobia and panic attacks. A stone of protection and luck. Helpful for finding partners who are in tune and share their dreams. Promotes inner stability, composure and maturity. Encourages security and self-confidence. Encourages you to see the bigger picture in life.

I used the Turritella and Ocean Jasper together back in September 2018, the week of the 23rd. This is an excerpt of what we were going through then:

“Everyday, we are at war with ourselves. Some days are better than others. Some days, there are so many reasons to feel sad and frustrated. Some days we are exhausted. Still, we must forge on, and there is definitely no reason that we need to be miserable and angry. Every single day, we have to remember why we choose to be happy. We have to appreciate all the things we do have. When things get tough, and you want to break down and quit, you have to find a more optimistic perspective. It might not always work, but at least keep trying, and do your best. Surely, you will experience a shift in your reactions and mindset. It doesn’t serve you, in any way, to wallow over the past. Positivity is the way forward. Find the humour, or a way to laugh.. it’s truly the best way to shift your perspective.”

The energy lately has been so intense. Deep shifts are happening within us and are being reflected in our outer world. Feelings that have been bubbling deep down inside, are demanding to come out to be expressed and released. You can only ignore the truth for so long. Truth always eventually comes to the light. If you have been ignoring your own needs, they are going to be screaming out to you now. You are likely feeling irritable and exhausted. You’ve done so much, for so long. I hear you and I see you. We mustn’t allow ourselves to wallow there though. We are strong and we can do all that is required of us. We just have to pace ourselves, and never give up. Yes, we deserve to relax more and have more prosperity, and we have to trust that is coming. For now, we have to keep working with what we have, where we are. It’s going to be much easier to manifest a positive attitude over a lottery win. Which one would serve you better in the long run? We don’t need to long for all the extra things in life. We need to find satisfaction in what we have right here and now. We have what we need, and we don’t need to constantly live in fear. The important thing to look at now is our own thought processes. The pressures we put on ourself. We have to understand that we are the ones who create our own happiness. If you are going to work all your life and not put your foot down for what you deserve, then nothing is going to change. If you are going to allow yourself to struggle and stress endlessly, life is going to be hard. You have to make the changes you need. It might not be easy, but only you understand the needs of your soul, and only you can change the way things are. Brainstorm some ideas of things you can change to create a happier life. What do you love to do? What do you want to do? Write it down. Remind yourself of your goals and inspirations. Find ways to start incorporating those ideas into your life. We need to start living a more relaxed life, which in turn will open us up to receiving more. Appreciate blessings and joy, and be happy. When we are truly happy… when we let go of the fears and worry… we have so much self-confidence and self-worth. When you love yourself, you appreciate yourself and the moments you have here. You want to make the best of it. This is where your power lies. In the choice… in the conscious choosing of being happy and healthy. You can overcome depression and anxiety. Grief can heal. Obsessive thoughts and fears can be soothed. It’s not always going to be easy, and there will be bumps in the road. The more you practice, the easier it will be to continue to heal. We are protected, we are safe, and we are lucky. We are coming into our maturity, and we are composed and ready. Be confident. Create opportunities. See the bigger picture in life, with optimistic positivity. Let’s see what the cards say!

The Harmony card is asking us to create more harmony for ourselves. Music is a great tool when you need to express your emotions or even change how you are feeling. Use music to feel… good, or sad, happy or nostalgic.. whatever you need to feel, there is music that can help you. I find this card especially interesting, as Elf Angels Creations store in Lloydminster, Alberta, had a sound healing last night with Denise Tournier from Energized Mandalas. She played a beautiful crystal harp. The sound was so angelic and powerful. You can watch the video on Elf Angels Creations Page on Facebook where she demonstrates her tools and plays some music. It is fitting to see this card after watching such beautiful sounds. This card is about creating a harmonious life with the people around us. This is about letting life flow through us, and making the best of it. Creating with what we have. This card tells us we are moving into a phase of harmony and balance. The hard part is going to be maintaining those things. There are always going to be bumps in the road. It’s about learning that, even when things get hard, we still have our own harmonious life we can create. When you are feeling down, remember a time when you felt amazing. What can you do to feel more like that today? The Spirit of Fire is this transformation we have been going through. It’s about facing our fears and letting go of the old beliefs and experiences. This is about trying new things. It’s about creating new habits and lifestyles and believing in yourself. You are a thunderbird rising from the ashes, who are you going to be now? How do you appear as you visualize yourself rising from the fire? Make small changes to work towards that vision of yourself. This is about balance. You have to take care of others, but you also have to take care of you. “Fire that burns too brightly, burns out… but a fire that’s left to smoulder, dies.” The Camel is here to remind us of our resiliency. It feels like this journey has been so long and hard. Things can look bleak. If you take time to rest, you can look to your inner resources for satisfaction. You can realize that in this moment, in the now, things are always ok. Use music, meditation, visualizing and dreaming, to create any reality you choose. You can call on the wealth of knowledge you have accumulated to help you overcome anything with courage and determination. What have you got to lose? First, identify where you want to go. Make a list of those dreams and goals, no matter how spectacular they are. Then, proceed slowly towards those goals, making small steps and adjusting as you go. Cast away fears, doubts and hesitations as they arise. Know that all is well and you are protected at all times. Call upon your Spirit Guides and Angels to help you and continue to guide you forward. You have what it takes, and you will get through this! That is why we need to make the most of it… make the best of it.. I feel so many good things are on the way for us. If you keep putting in the work… being a good person… and letting the stress go.. you will live a harmonious life. Keep taking those steps and moving forward!

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! 🌑🙏✨

Full Worm Super Moon in Virgo – March 9, 2020

We have a Full Moon in Virgo coming up tomorrow! 🌕🐛 It is called the Worm Moon because it is a time when the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw. Earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. The 1st of 3 Super Moons, this Virgo Full Moon is full of energy and emotion. This Full Moon is cleansing us with it’s powerful light and drawing out the things we are ready to let go of. Feel all the emotions that are wanting to be expressed and let them out. Come to full acceptance of your past and what has happened, and let it go. Move forward with a clean slate and fresh energy. It is the perfect time, with Spring Equinox approaching on March 19th. Mercury Retrograde ends on March 10th, the day after the Full Moon. This is illuminating and bringing awareness of what needs to be seen. What is being shown to you? When you are feeling fearful, find reasons to have faith. Keep practicing shifting your energy and making it work better for you. Virgo is all about being practical, logical and systematic. How can you make your life work for you? How can you change old patterns of thinking? How can you change your habits to benefit you? You are in control of your life. Take the lessons from your past and use them to propel you forward on your journey. Focus on turning your energy inward to find clarity and awareness. Clean out your life in every aspect over the next few weeks. Wishing you all a wonderful Full Moon! 💗🙏✨

We have a beautiful New Moon in Pisces coming up in a couple days. 🌑✨ This New Moon is wonderfully positive, although Mercury Retrograde could impact the positive energy.

Make sure you are setting your intentions and exuding the type of energy that you want for your life. Peel away any shallow layers and be ready to reinvent yourself. Feel free to change and explore. Now is the time to be confident and free! 💗💫♓️

We have a New Moon in Scorpio tomorrow at 9:38pm in my time zone (MDT). For some, it falls on the 28th. This New Moon is going to wake us up so we can live to a fuller potential. Harness your strength, power and energy, and laugh in the face of fear. Be brave. Let go of everything you no longer need to carry. Embrace everything that happens and flow with it. See the beauty in it all and emerge better than ever before. ✨🦂🌙

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of September 22, 2019

The crystals I am working with for the week are Sardonyx, Citrine and Desert Rose. 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.

Sardonyx – A stone of protection and strength. Holds a vibration of happiness, optimism and confidence. Increases stamina, vigor and self-control.

Citrine – Cleanses and rejuvenates your Spirit. Assists with self-improvement and self-healing. Increases energy and motivation. Encourages a fresh start. Holds the energy of the sun, and helps you feel cheerful.

Desert Rose – A stone of the mind, as well as Angelic stone. It is said to bring mental ability and clarity, as well as perception of all kinds, including intuitive perception. It helps you to make sense of things. Quiets worries and stills the mind from distractions. It rids the mind of outdated thought processes. A stone of strength and standing your ground. Helps you to have heart-centered thoughts and brings understanding one’s own emotional body.

We have been through some tough times lately… not only just recently, but for the last while. We are slowly on an upswing, making the changes and adjustments in our life that we need to be happier. This week we are continuing to find more happiness in our life. Things can be so monotonous, exhausting and overwhelming. There has been so much anxiety and depression. We wonder why we have to endure these types of emotions, but everything in life is a lesson. When we go through tough times, we grow and learn the lessons we need to help ourselves not only cope through hard times, but also thrive. I saw a quote today, by another cancer mom, and I loved it so much. It truly embodies how I feel about everything I’ve been through in my life.

“There is something so empowering about knowing that you’ve already experienced the worst thing you will experience in your life.” – Morgan Rachel Shanaghan

Be empowered by your struggles. You’ve been through so much and came out ok.. so why hold yourself back? There is nothing to fear. You’ve handled challenges before and you can do it again. Don’t fear the challenges that arise. See yourself as competent and capable to handle whatever comes your way. When you stop worrying about what could go wrong, you allow for everything that is good. Always remember, that life wants you to be happy. Life wants you to experience the beauty and the joy. Have optimism and be confident in yourself. Life is so much more enjoyable when your happy! You have control over what you want to focus on. When you are in a more positive mindset, it also helps to increase energy levels. When we focus on how hard everything is, it weighs us down. Worry when you must, but take every opportunity you can to turn things around and see them in a positive light. As much as we would love to stop the world from turning, we don’t get to do that. You have to appreciate each moment while you can. The less time you live in depression, the more time you can live being happy. The Citrine is here to cleanse your Spirit and bring in more happiness. The Sardonyx is here to protect you from the things that bring your energy down. See yourself as protected in a bubble of white light. Also, see yourself, or particular body parts, wrapped in green healing light. Self-care is such an overused term, but being kind to yourself and doing caring things for yourself is one of the best ways to find healing. Get a reiki treatment or go for a massage. Find ways to release and heal. When we live in a state of self-love, where we truly care and are compassionate for ourselves, it helps us feel more motivated to do even more for ourselves. This is a great time for starting a work out plan. The more you take care of yourself, the more energy you will have to take greater care. When I did the Autumn Equinox post, the energy was all about fresh starts each and every day. Truly see everyday as another opportunity to do better. Even taking one step towards your goals can be so rewarding.. and then keep building on that. The Desert Rose is here to quiet our mind, and help us find calm and clarity. It wants us to let go of the worries. There has been so much uncertainty lately… people unsure of their path or how to heal.. but the Desert Rose is here to help us make sense of everything. It’s going to help you understand what you need to be truly happy, and help you to stand up for your needs. So many external forces and people affect how we feel about ourselves, so make sure you stay protected in your bubble and do what’s right for you. That’s how you find true happiness! Let’s see what the cards say.

I LOVE these cards. It has to be one of my favourite decks. They are truly so wise! Treasure Island is all about positive thinking. This turtle has no idea what’s on his back, all he knows is it’s heavy. He keeps trekking on, without knowing the rewards he will reap when he reaches his destination. It will all be worth the effort, even though he can’t see that now. This card tells us, the more positive we can think and handle the situations in our lives, the more we will be rewarded. We can’t afford to live a life of lack and worry. Stop putting your energy into all that you don’t have. Be thankful for what you do… for the work you are putting in now. It’s going to pay off, so believe in yourself! When you do the inner work and truly work on healing yourself, it will pay off externally. This is a time of good fortune. Make sure you are enjoying it and sharing it with others. When we hoard and worry, the Universe cuts off our flow of abundance. Treasure that is shared multiplies by magic. Keep your heart open to relationships now too. Things may not always be perfect or easy, but they can bring you great gifts and valuable lessons. This is a positive aspect for business and creative ventures as well. Generosity and gratitude should lead you now. Affirming a sense of not having enough comes at a high cost… Do you really want to proclaim yourself a victim of disappointment and failed expectations? Expectations are the killer of all joy. Live life without expectation, whenever possible, keeping space open in your heart to allow the best possible outcomes… perhaps outcomes you haven’t even considered. What else is possible for you? Really, anything. There is so much love and abundance. Remind yourself how lucky you are to have all that you have. Remind yourself that you are open to receiving blessings of all kinds. See your heart as wide open, ready to receive all the magic the Universe can offer. Just like last week, this is about us getting out of our self-confined limitations. Just because you can’t see the goodness all around you, doesn’t mean it’s not there… maybe you just have to look a little closer or travel a little farther. Open the doors of opportunity and say Yes to life! We have a Deep Knowing of what is right for us. Even though, it isn’t always clear. See everything as a blessing and a lesson. Everything you have been through has taught you something about yourself. Our intuition is always guiding us, so trust what feels right for you. It may feel horrible, or like a huge mistake… but maybe that is just your expectation of the situation, and maybe it’s leading you to a treasure you can’t see yet. If your gut tells you to pursue an opportunity, make sure you do. Sometimes we worry that we don’t have enough experience, but we all have a deep knowing we can tap into, that you can trust in. Trust in what you feel and what you know. Past the busy mind, your genius awaits… and it truly comes from your heart. You know what is right for you and what isn’t, so listen to that inner knowing and trust in it. Go The Distance is all about how strong we are now. We can handle whatever comes our way, and can do so efficiently. Focus on what you are working towards, and not on the hiccups along the way. There is no need to fear the occasional obstacle. You have what it takes to overcome anything and be successful. It is important you remain true to yourself, and listen to your inner guidance. If you are doing the best you can, it keeps you in alignment with the energy of miracles. This is also about relationships and listening to your intuition. Do they have a larger purpose in your life? If you feel the need to let them go, do it. If you feel there is a greater purpose to your union, then trust in that. Things may get tough along the way… but imagine the satisfaction when you have made it so far together. There are always so many lessons we can’t see or understand at the time. Whoever is meant to stay in your life will do so. This is about continuing on our path even when we can’t see the finish line. Life is about the journey, not the ending. Trust that you are always in the right place at the right time, learning life lessons that pertain to you. You only get stronger for every hurdle you endure. If you need to conserve your strength, be selective about where you spend your energy. Stand up for yourself and be willing to say no when needed. Listen to the call of your soul, because it will never lead you astray.

I pulled an extra card for guidance from the Universe, and it’s so perfect. You don’t have to say anything at all… just live in your bubble of happiness, and people will see and mirror your magic! Have a great week!
