The crystals I am working with for the week are Sardonyx, Zebra Jasper and Snowflake Obsidian. 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.
Zebra Jasper – Encourages us to stop considering failure as an option. Holds the energy of balance, uniting masculine and feminine, Yin and Yang. It also balances the chakras, and the physical, intellectual, emotional and etheric bodies. An anti-apathy stone. It allows you to be optimistic, despite life’s stresses and gives you more initiative to tackle those problems. Encourages you to dream and turn those dreams into reality. A grounding stone, allowing you to tune into Mother Earth and find joy in your surroundings.
Snowflake Obsidian – A stone of purity, Snowflake Obsidian brings about a balance to body, mind and spirit. Snowflake Obsidian helps to keep centered and focused when any type of chaotic situation presents itself. Snowflake Obsidian can remove negativity from a space or person with ease. Volcanic in origin, Snowflake Obsidian helps to draw emotions to the surface and to examine harmful thought patterns.
There has been a strong energy of wanting to give up.. Feelings have been surfacing, asking us to examine our thought patterns and emotions. The crystals make me feel like things are complicated, yet simple at the same time. Things are mostly black and white.. but there are some shades of grey we can’t deny. There is always good within the bad, and bad within the good. This week is about embracing the duality of life, in all aspects. Embodying both masculine and feminine qualities. It’s an understanding that choices can be simple.. but feelings and emotions are not. It’s important that you feel and honour the emotions you experience, while having a higher knowing that this experience also serves you in some positive way, with lessons always being learned. No matter how tough things have been for me, the readings all say we are moving into a positive, abundant and joyful time of life. I choose to believe that and expect that. I have to trust that the energy will pass and work itself out. That things aren’t as bad as they seem, even if they feel really horrible at that moment. When you start to feel renewed, you can look forward to this week with optimism and hope. Yes, things might still get stressful at times, but you will be feeling much better and ready to overcome any hurdles. There is so much optimism for life. Look around and enjoy this moment, enjoy the day, enjoy the week. Get as much joy as you can out of it. Appreciate the beauty and wonder that is life. Allow yourself to be happy, whenever you can, as often as possible. The energy of giving up will be replaced this week with increased optimism and enthusiasm. Keep working on the projects that resonate with your soul.. the ones that truly make YOU happy. Let’s see what the cards have to add.
I’m excited to use these astrology cards. I used them last night doing a reading for myself, and they were amazing. I’m hoping to do some free 1-card readings with them soon, so stay tuned for that!
I feel like Spirit is making us take a deep look at what is and isn’t working in our lives. If there was ever a time to make a change, it is in this fresh Aries New Moon energy! The way you feel about situations gives you insight into things you may need to change or look at differently. What are you asking for and manifesting in your life? What intentions did you set for the new moon? Which way are you trying to move toward? Let your emotions guide you, by clearly showing you what you want and don’t want. There are some domestic issues, making us consider where (and what) home truly is for us. This could indicate a good time to move. It could also mean you have been spending too much time on the home and family matters, and less on the things that give you personal joy and happiness. Maybe you just need to get out of the house for a while! The Fourth House is about who you are at the core, that only a few people in the world truly know and see. Its about accepting yourself as a whole, the good with the bad, the pretty and the ugly.. loving yourself fully and completely.. and considering this same acceptance for those you love and share your home with. Feel what you have to feel, and get over it and get back to love. This is also a message about connecting to your ancestors that contributed to who you are today. I have tracked back my ancestors to the 1700’s, and it’s so interesting to piece together the story of how I came to be, and how it relates to who I am today. I can see how they guide me. Spend time with your parents and take in as much knowledge as you can. There may also be potential issues with financial matters. Make sure you aren’t living in a “lack” state of mind and worrying too much. Trust that abundance and opportunities will present themselves in the best way for your highest good. This week, we need to get in touch with our true selves. Pay attention to dreams as there is a lot going on with them now… integrating past lessons, highlighting trouble areas, and helping us find pathways to move forward. This is about allowing yourself to be seen, especially when you feel vulnerable. Make some space and take some time to process all the things you have been going through. Your feelings will help you understand what’s going on. Find ways to release the energy and get balanced. Let your instincts guide you, and allow your family to support you. Repeat the manta, “Everything is working out for my highest good.” A sincere Thank You to the Universe never hurts either!
