Mercury Wed-New Moon Sunday

How do we heal? How can we try to heal ourselves when so many are suffering? How can we think about ourselves when the prison system is modern day slavery, when people in Puerto Rico still have no running water or roofs over their heads, people can’t afford their medicine, black men are being killed for being black, black women cant escape stereotypes, sex workers aren’t respected, people aren’t listening to women, etc? How can we heal? What does it even mean to heal? Healing in our modern society means that we are stable and strong enough to help and give to others that are suffering. Now is the time to be strong enough to give your time and money to causes that actually help people, careful of the Red Cross and Salvation Army. Now is the time to be a real ally. Pay attention to where you spend your money, especially at the grocery store. Look at the parent company of everything you buy. Chances are, they are one of the 5 major corporations giving money to our corrupt government, testing on animals, and supporting causes that are anti-lgbtq+, anti-people of color, anti-women, etc. Our government has proven that money is everything to them right now. Your money is your power. Support your local business. Support black-owned businesses. Support LGBTQ+ owned businesses. Go out of your way to put your money where your mouth is. It’s going to be inconvenient because that’s what society has done to us. It’s made our conviences contribute to causes that are against the people. Back to healing. Let us heal. Let us be the strong warriors in this fight of government vs the people. Strong minds, strong hearts, and strong wallets.

Do you see the little jasper frog in the picture of the cards? Frogs are a totem for healing and abundance. I’ve included this frog today because we’re experiencing a deep universal healing, and it will only get deeper at the end of the week when Saturn makes its shift into Capricorn for the first time in 30ish years. The healing process is hard. Troublesome situations come forward, people/situations from your past come forward, and it can feel like you’re being handed a series of bad luck. This is all  coming forward for you to deal with. On a larger scale, the mass reports of racism and sexism are coming forward to help us heal. We can’t get over a problem if we pretend it doesn’t exist. Pretending a problem doesn’t exist is oppressive to our souls. Let’s heal!

Take a deep breath. Ask the spirits around you what you need to heal. “What is my personal journey toward healing my soul?” Choose your card(s).

The card on the left with the Dalmatian Jasper is the Knight of Cups. The card in the center with the Snowflake Obsidian is the Four of Cups. The card on the right with the Selenite is the Seven of Swords.

*

*

The Knight of Cups, “Sensual Oasis”

The Knight of Cups controls our dreams and cravings. This card wants us to transform our action through carnality. Our healing process comes through our lower chakras with this card, which is where the Dalmation Jasper comes in. This stone specializes in the lower chakras, and in helping our bodies tune into crystal/mineral energies. If you’re a person who has a hard time vibing with stones and crystals, this is a great stone to start you off. This will assist in the healing of your lower chakras, and this card wants you specifically in tune with your sacral chakra. What is your relationship with sex? It’s time to conquer the fears surrounding your sex life. If you have a partner, it’s time to have an open conversation with them about how you feel about your sex life. If you don’t have a partner, it’s time to address your trauma surrounding sex, even if you don’t look at your relationship with sex traumatic. Be completely honest with yourself. Address your carnal desires. It can be difficult to admit these desires to yourself, but there’s no better time than now. If you don’t know why this card has come forward for you, meditate on it. Bring the frog into your mind as you think deep about it. Let your mind inform you.

I ACCEPT AND LOVE MY DEEPEST DESIRES

*

*

The Four of Cups, “Luxurious Love”

The Four of Cups comes forward when we need help loving ourselves. It comes forward when we place blame on ourselves without giving ourselves a second chance. Look at this card. We’re seeing green life emerge upon the banks of the Nile and desert of Egypt. It is the most natural, harmonious process on this planet: life finding a way to thrive. This natural process comes with a sense of tenderness. Now isn’t the time to compare yourself to others. You are in your own journey. Do away with timelines. Maybe this isn’t where you saw yourself at this age, but you can’t decide those things for yourself. It’s not your job or anyone else’s to decide where and when you should be completing certain aspects of life. You are following your journey. Everything you want to happen, will happen with time. Accept yourself and your process. You can achieve balance and harmony with the soft, abundant life that love gives. The Snowflake Obsidion is a volcanic stone that grounds and protects. When we have certain things we need, it’s easy to get wrapped up in how we can make those things better. Be slow about spending money now. Ground yourself and take life da by day. If you have extra, consider giving it to people that have so much less.

AS NATURE FINDS BALANCE, SO DO I.

*

*

The Seven of Swords, “Pesky Influences”

The Seven of Swords comes forward when we are damning our own selves with negativity, or when others are coming at us with heavy negativity. Perhaps you don’t feel you deserve your success? Perhaps we feel like imposters? This card asks you to take credit for your hard work. This card asks you to wake your inner lion. Stand up for yourself. Know that you are exactly where you need to be and own it. Bringing selenite into your life will not only aid in healing, but it will protect against any psychic attacks. It will help protect against harsh words. Grabbing some carnelian couldn’t hurt as well.

I LISTEN TO THE GUIDENCE OF MY LOVING THOUGHTS

Wednesday, Mercury conjunct Saturn

We are fully saturated in Mercury Retrograde energetics by now, and before we know it, miscommunication is misfiring all around us. This week is about listening. It’s about putting what’s going on inside our heads aside and actually hearing the other person speak. We aren’t waiting for our turn to talk or to give advice. We are just listening. We are here to know what the speaker is truly saying. If you need to ask, “what did you mean by that?” Ask away. Ask all the questions you need to ask to fully understand what that person is saying to you. Don’t make assumptions this week. When it is your turn to talk, make sure the audience receives what you’re saying with perfect understanding. Saturn, the dad of the Universe, the teacher of hard lessons, is firing all cues with our communication. So, listen to what others are saying. Really listen. Don’t put your own spin on their voice. Gain new levels of understanding, and speak with clarity. Convey exactly what you’re feeling and what you need to say.

The calendula flowers you see around the cards are a great metaphysical tool to keep up with clear communication. They are also healing. They work well in skin care, if you need a new moisturizer, toner, mask, or something. Burn them with lavender flowers for an immediate response. (They don’t smell great on their own. I also like to burn them with cinnamon and copal resin.)

Now, take a deep breath. Hold your breath in for three seconds. Count it, 1 2 3. Let it out for three seconds. Count it. 1 2 3 Breath in for three seconds. 1 2 3 Hold for three seconds 1 2 3. Breath out for three seconds 1 2 3. (Read to yourself or out loud) These cards were chosen for me. I am the earth, the air, the fire, the water, and spirit. I am everything and everything is me. Now choose your card(s).

If you chose the card on the left with the Smokey Quartz, you got The Fool. If you chose the card in the center with the Barite, you got Justice. If you chose the card on the right with the Lapis Lazuli, you got the High Priestess. You may have noticed all three cards are from the Major Arcana. What was wild to me, was that I knew what each of them was before I flipped it over. When we consider the energetic shift we went through on Sunday, it’s not a surprise that we are seeing such intensities. December is a month that shapes our years to come. Every decision you make this month is making a greater decision for you. For example, when I chose to side with the local Queer Community instead of a local business, that decision will stick with me for the next couple of years. Especially if I keep choosing human rights over business. I will probably see myself  being reached out to by more people in the community, and when people think of me, they will associate me with that community. Sometimes we don’t think how small decisions will effect us in the long term, but for this month, especially, we should.

*

The Fool, The Hero’s Leap

This is the first card in the Tarot deck. It’s not number 1, it’s 0. This card signifies a total rebirth. New ways of thinking, of looking at life, new experiences, new, new, new. This card comes up when something BIG is on the horizon. For some of you it might be the separation of a partnership, and for others it might be a new spiritual outlook on life. Whatever it is, it’s changing the course of your life. The Unicorn on this card represents our purest self- free of fear, of inhibition, and predetermined ideas. Trust yourself and your instincts right now and surrender to the pull of the Universe. Communicate your needs clearly to who you’re severing ties with. Let them know exactly why you’re leaving.

I GIVE MYSELF TO THE GREAT UNKNOWN

*

Justice, Sushumna Root

If you chose Justice, you’re familiar with what I’m about to tell you. You’re being asked to live simply. Reduce the extremes in your life. Pack a lunch for work, and make your own coffee. Wake up earlier to stretch. Take time for self care. This is a time to mitigate financial stress and take care of yourself. Do less. Since Justice is the 8th card in the deck, it signifies that you need this reminder regularly. Maybe you like certain luxuries in your life, or you party hard on the weekends. This is a reminder to slow down a bit a live a little more simple, a time least for this month. Now is the time to redirect or temporarily avoid relationship conflicts, reduce workload, and simply, regulate the storms as you see fit. This is a time to strengthen for you. Communicate to everyone that you need some personal time. Get a massage, do a float tank, face mask, whatever helps the rejuvenation process is yours, but take time for home. Be in your home with both feet on the ground and provide for yourself. It will help ground you, and you’ll find decision making to be easier after a week of this.

I FIND BALANCE IN MY CORE, AND DON’T TAKE ON MORE THAN I CAN HANDLE.

*

The High Priestess, Guardian of Shadow Dreams

This card comes up to say that your strengths rely in the shadow. If you missed your opportunity to get to know shadow self during Scorpio season, then you have some work to do. If you spend lots of time confronting and trying to understand the darker sides of self, then you already know that it’s one of your strongest attributes. I work so closely with my shadow self and it does make you stronger when you admit to your deepest desires and own your faults. A misconception of the shadow, is that it’s bad. The shadows are ruled by the mother, the Moon  they are inherently divine feminine and can be examined using philosophy, music, or environmental studies. Your gut instincts are very powerful, and so are your dreams. Now is a good time to listen to your inner self and give it what it wants.

I LISTEN TO THE GUIDANCE OF MY INTUITION

Wednesday into Retrograde

Today’s choose your own adventure is inspired by transition and change. We’re being asked to elevate our perception. I’m going to say that again, and please read it as many times as you need to to understand it. We’re being asked to elevate our perception. We’re being asked to elevate our perception of one another and our surroundings alike. We’re being asked to step out of societal, mundane standards and celebrate one another. It’s time to put aside our competitive nature. It’s time to put aside jealousy and envy. It’s time to truly feel happy for one another and KNOW that the universe is giving you everything as you need it. Everyone carries a life on their shoulders. Everyone has bad luck from time to time. We all experience humanness and sing happy for someone who’s life is on the rise is very important. You are sending them the energy to keep elevating them, and in return, you will receive the energetics that you need to thrive. Offer happiness. December is going to prove to be a challenging month. We have aspects squaring each other that we haven’t seen in years, and we’re going to be transported to a time when we could have made better decisions. Now is that opportunity. This is your chance to feel proud and confident  of advice you give to your friends, decisions you make, and the smile you give to strangers. Mercury Retrograde will put a cloud over a couple weeks in the month, and our minds will get a little foggy, but stay strong in your self care and sleep. You have the ability to accomplish a lot in that time.

Onto the cards!

If you’ve never participated in the choose your own adventure card selection, now is the time to shut your eyes and take a deep breath. Before you open your eyes, tell yourself that the cards were chosen for you, and one or more of them has the answers that you seek. Give them one more look before you shut your eyes. Let them work on you. Open your eyes and choose. Let’s look at the reveal.

The Cards: left to right

Page of Pentacles, “Mother of Harmony.” Ace of Swords, “Illuminated.” The Sun, “Light Consciousness.”

*

*

The Page of Pentacles.

Pentacles, the suit of Earthly delights and misadventures. The Page, the conception and birth of ideas and beginnings. The Mother, at one with the Moon and shadow, steady as the tide, and strong as the roots of forests in our fantasies. Here we see Stevie Nicks, goddess, a matriarch, and our divine feminine, levitating on water. She is holding a soft, white parrot. Behind her is a 3/4 Moon, representing fertility. You have the ability to focus deeply during this time. This isn’t necessarily a time for collaboration for you. It’s more of a time to figure out exactly what you need to gather and organize before you begin your big ideas. This is a time of action. If you move now, you can achieve your highest goals. You’re experiencing a spiritual opening that allows new energies to enter your life. Let go of fear. Don’t worry about not succeeding now. You will if you make the effort. Jump into your dreams. Take the first step toward manifestation

“I AM FULL OF LIGHT”

*

*

Ace of Swords

Swords is the suit of our mind. It’s the suit that discusses perception, intelligence, and thought process. An Ace is a brand new start. It’s a new beginning. On the card we see a woman laying on her back and facing the sky. She lay in an open room representing the ethereal mind. She is receiving divine guidance. This is a time for aloneness. This is a time to find out what YOU need. It’s not a time to find out what you need to be for others. It’s a time to listen to yourself. Be alone for a few hours. In silence, if you can, but if you can’t, simply being alone will do. Listen to your mind. Have any conversation with yourself. Address what comes forward. This is a time for creative endeavors, oneness with yourself, and philosophical pursuits.

“I AM OPEN TO DIVINE INSPIRATION.”

*

*

The Sun

This card is of the Major Arcana, the suit of fate and destiny. We are experiencing many energies right now. They have lots of power and can manifest in fear. This is not the time to be afraid! This is the time to put into action your manifestations. This is the time where you realize that you are the one that has to take action, and there is nothing you need to wait for to make what you want to happen, happen. This is a time to be fully ready to love and give yourself to your dreams. Take each day as it comes and with great strength. Light is radiating from you! Make plans and drive forward. This is a great time to be wholly devoting yourself to the ecstatic nature of love.

“THE LIGHT THAT SHINES WITHIN ME LEADS ME TO MYSELF”

The Freekin Weekend (11/10-11/12)

The choose your own adventure reading is back. I’ll go over how this works for any newbies around here. Shut your eyes and take a deep breath. Try to access a goal, or emotion you’ve been overcome with lately. Take another deep breath. Open your eyes and choose a card that feels like yours. Before you open your eyes, know that one of these cards is yours. It’s here for you. It’s here to describe your weekend. It knows you. Choose with confidence. Every now and then it feels right to choose two cards. That’s ok too.

*

The cards this week are a reflection of the underworld. We’re dripping with Scorpio venom and elbow deep into the underground. Scorpio is relentlessly dredging up skeletons from the past and trauma we tucked away. We felt this hard at the end of October, but some may still be feeling that scorpion sting. Scorpio and Venus like to cook when they get together, and they’re favorite thing to make is humble pie. They make it nice and bitter, and we have to try it. They’re so proud of their creation. So, we have to look at how we contribute to every situation. Did that person cut you off this morning on your way to work? How did you react? Did you exacerbate the situation by honking and yelling? Why? What did that do for your blood pressure? What did that do for their morning? Why is your ego so bothered by it? Have you ever had to cut someone off? Sometimes, it happens. Maybe they hadn’t had any coffee yet and spaced that they need to turn soon. Maybe they’re just a dick. But, what does that make you if you honked and yelled? Also, a dick. Examine how your ego reacts to other people. Everyone needs some tenderness right now, and maybe all that person you encounter needs, is compassion and patience.

*

I’m going to mash all the cards for the weekend together into one big shepherd’s pie of energy. We’ll take that energy and see how it’s mixing with the card that you pulled. So, for new-comers, this means that I pull a card for every single day of the month. (I usually post it here, but I haven’t in a while because I’m cooking up something big for you all.) When I do the choose your own adventure set up, we look at the card of the day, the astrology, and the card that you chose for yourself, to see what we can expect over the next day or so. Since it’s been a while since I’ve posted and I’m crazy overloaded with work right now, I thought we’d lump the weekend together as one. So I’ll put the three cards for the weekend up and we’ll talk about how they are interacting with each other and with the astrology right now. 

Together, these cards mark great transformation, ahem, within our relationships. Sort of like what I was mentioning with Scorpio + Venus and Scorpio + Jupiter. This is the time to leave a lasting imprint on the people we meet. We are the warriors of light. We have woken up matriarchal ideas and know that our world doesn’t work right now. The ways we access food and buy ‘things’ are wasteful and destroying the planet, the laws only serve a few, people full of hate are in power (not just nationally), and we still act like the natives of this country and people of color’s voice is lesser than white voices. Things are changing though. People are waking up everywhere. We’re seeing it in Virginia, Germany, France, etc. We just have to keep the momentum going. It doesn’t require constant canvassing or protesting either. It just requires us holding love and infinite possibilities for everyone we meet. We just need to give everyone the benefit of the doubt that, if they felt more love, they would have treated you better also. The hard parts is calling out the people you see exhibiting hate, but, again, you’re a warrior. If anyone can do it, it’s you. Now that we’re holding realistic expectations on everyday people, we need to have this space for ourselves. No 0-100 attitude toward your feelings.We are in the upside-down right now, and some of you may be doing a lot of crying and working through some deep shit. That’s amazing! Don’t be upset with yourself over it. These emotions have to surface for them to leave your body. It’s like you’re puking up a demogorgon in your sink. Crying kills it on sight, so it won’t develop into a demo-dog. If you just kept your emotions bottled up, or felt them but didn’t release, well, you might just turn into a shadow monster. But, in all seriousness, this is the time for release. It’s been a tough year. Every day you have to show up as a warrior, and it’s exhausting. So, take this weekend off. Rest without guilt. Cry without being mad at yourself about it. Eat snacks in your bed and binge Stranger Things again. Make pie and eat the whole thing. Take the time to love yourself. Speaking of yourself, let’s finally flip those cards over, eh?

Ok, so, for the people who chose the card with the smokey quartz on the left, your card is the Page of Swords, “Lightning Strike.” The card in the middle with the lithium quartz is the Queen of Cups, “The Vital Creatress.” The card on the right with the chevron amethyst is the Eight of Cups, “Labyrinth.”

*

The Page of Swords meets Societal Transformation

On the card you see a woman standing in a pose of power. She is receiving a dynamic, multifaceted lightning strike of clarity. We’ve been spending a lot of time trudging the murky depths of Scorpio season, and we’re starting to finally see the fog lift. Friday, we’re being asked to heal ourselves by the King of Pentacles. If you can take the night off, it will only further help you gain that sense of clarity. You’re walking toward a precipice, and plans definitely need to begin to finalize. Decisions have to be made before 2018. Saturday, The Chariot swoops in to remind us that clarity and preparedness are essential in moving to the next chapter of our lives. The Chariot always comes in when cycles need to be broken. You’ve been doing the same thing in some aspect of your life, and it’s not getting you anywhere or going anywhere. The Chariot wants you to execute ideas and plan for a break in that cycle. So, use this newly found clarity for progressing forward in your life. Sunday, Three of Cups, is a change in perspective. The women on the cards are converging their powers to make something new.  While you’re making plans and moving  forward, make sure you’re keeping in check wild expectations you could be placing on yourself. If you feel like the clarity isn’t coming forward, maybe that’s because you’re looking at the situation in the wrong way. Don’t give yourself unrealistic timelines. Don’t tell yourself that you have to be at a certain place in life by a certain age. Most people find their destiny and path by accident at a random time in their life. Do your best to stay present in this time and moment, and use the clarity and planing time for realistic goal setting. If you need to reach out to others, Sunday is a great day for teamwork. Ask for deep honestly, and take it as part of the humble pie. True honestly from friends is a gift that helps us grow.

I AM ONE WITH THE ELECTRIC PULSE OF THE UNIVERSE. I WALK WITH CLARITY OF PURPOSE

*

The Queen of Cups meets Intuitive Harmony

On this card we see Frida Kahlo engaging us steadily and openly from a simplistic and dominantly violet palette. It is specifically your duty to remain open to others despite personal trauma. The more you do this, the stronger you become. You will start to walk with more authenticity and love than you thought possible. Friday, the King of Pentacles asks us to rest. Take the night off and rest. Take a bath, listen to music, and sleep. Sleep as long as you can. It’s going to be challenging to walk with tenderness for everyone, but, at some point, our strength has to overcome the trauma. You are not what happened to you. Don’t let your abuser win like that. You’re not alone is these experiences. Use your strength to lift up others that are having a hard time looking at the world through the eyes of a victim. They can take off those glasses, they just need to be shown that they are more then what happened to them. They have an inner light and a sense of humor we all need. They have a smile the world wants to see. You have the power to show people this. But, you’ve got to be strong. Rest up this weekend. The Chariot rolls in to remind you to break out of a cycle. You’ve been doing something the same for years and it isn’t getting you anywhere. Time for a new approach. You may need to wait until Sunday to figure out exactly what the approach is going to be. The Three of Cups ushers in a new perspective on Sunday. So, if ideas or strength doesn’t hit you Friday, don’t worry. Just rest and open your mind on Sunday.The women on the Three of Cups are converging their powers to make something new. Your situation is fully based on your perspective of it. Try seeing yourself through someone else’s eyes. Try getting outside of yourself to figure out your next move. In the meantime, smile at everyone on the street. Try to hold love for everyone, even the people that remind you of your abuser. There’s a video circulating the internet on dealing with bullies through love. Try to find it, message me if you can’t. It might help you with your perspective. Seek out others on Sunday. It’s a great day for teamwork. Ask for feedback on situations you need help with. Receive true honestly as a gift. Hear what you don’t like to hear and be open to what is being said. Don’t let your ego get in the way. Both negative and positive feedback is a gift.

I AM FULL TO THE BRIM WITH ENRICHED FEELINGS

The Eight of Cups meets Death and Decay

How do you see yourself? Do you see yourself as others see you? Do you know how others see you? Do you wish they saw you differently? The Eight of Cups is a perspective card. Are the hands on the card emerging from the depths or are they sinking? That is entirely up to you to decide. If you want people to see you in a certain light, be exactly what you want them to see. Even if it takes a note on your door to remind yourself every day, be the person you dream of being. You’re the only one stopping you. This weekend will allow you to organize these thoughts, as long as you don’t overbook yourself. The King of Pentacles is asking you to take Friday off for rest, at least after work. Do some self care. Read that book you’ve been wanting, build that shelf, do that face mask, eat an entire cake. Whatever self-care looks like for you, indulge on Friday. The Chariot rolls through on Saturday asking us to break cycles we’ve been stuck in for the past few years. What do you keep trying that never works out? Do yourself a favor and stop it. A better opportunity will present itself. Sunday is the Three of Cups. Sunday is for teamwork. Seek outside opinions and take them with a grain of salt. Listen to both positive and negative feedback and receive it as if it were a gift. Honestly helps us grow. It’s part of the humble pie.

INSPIRATION LIES DEEP IN MY HEART

LIBRA** NEW MOON**

This is an intense period of time astrologically. This Moon is not going to be any different. This Moon is bringing out what has been swept under surfaces, unchecked, and not talked about. It’s shaking loose anything and everything from our lives that isn’t working for us. How are we going to walk with our higher selves through this one? Read on for some inspiration.

*

As honestly is primal in Libras, it’s important to keep honesty within oneself. Shut your eyes and take a deep breath. Open your eyes and look at the cards above. Select one or more, whichever you feel drawn to. Feel through confidence.

*

*

Let’s flip them over.

*

If you chose the card on the left with the Quartz, your cars is The World. The card in the center with the Lithium Quartz is the 9 of Wands, and the card on the right with the pyrite is the 6 of Cups.

*

*

The general card of the day today is, The Wheel of Fortune.

With this card, we are reminded that no matter what type of changes come our way, good or bad, we are ultimately responsible for how things turn out. The way we handle a situation is our future and fate. Keep this in mind for all the upcoming changes you’ll be seeing.

*

*

The World meets the Wheel of Fortune

Both of these cards are from the Major Arcana. During a large astrological shift like this, you can expect things to take some twists and turns you never saw coming. Destiny has stepped in and is either going to push you along on your path, or she’s going to completely rearrange your goals and plans. The World signifies the end of a cycle. The New Moon is the beginning of a cycle. How fitting! Open your heart to gratitude. Thank the gods for your lessons and wisdom you’ve gathered over the past Moon cycle. You are ready for the major life shifts ahead. You’re ready for the next plateau.

*

The 9 of Wands meets the Wheel of Fortune

You’re being tasked with looking through new eyes. There are societal pressures working on you. You have to look beyond what you think people want to see when they look at you. Look beyond your own ego. Look beyond what you think people expect when they encounter you. Follow your instincts when making decisions. You’ll have to make some unpopular choices, but that’s why you’re called into these situations. You know the truth. You just have to follow through with your gut. If you’re making decisions that are best for the whole, you’ll come out on top. Don’t fear your subconscious now. Embrace who you are, for better and worse. You have the strength to get through this cycle more fierce then when you started.

*

The 6 of Cups meets the Wheel of Fortune

Sexual desires are at the forefront of our society. Sometimes, feeling sexy can empower us, and sometimes it belittles us. This card wants you to achieve sexual fulfillment. Speak up about your needs. Give your partners expectations and be vulnerable. Release fears, talk about trauma, and find enjoyment in this area of your life. Build trust with your partners. Emotional renewal will come from this work. Release yourself to the rhythms of love. Let it lead you this month.
