Clear it Out: A Smoothie for Releasing

Make-Green-Smoothies-for-the-Whole-Family.jpg (600×746)Greetings beloveds,

I hope you all are having a beautiful new year. With the setting of goals, intentions, and resolutions many are looking to change, renew, or improve their health through their eating habits and lifestyle. For me, this past year has been a struggle for me to maintain a consistent diet (eating habits) and movement schedule. I would get into a good flow and then get scooped out of it through travel, work obligations, spiritual quests, and emotional personal events. The blessing that came from this was a bit of freedom as I had to let go of my strict routine and begin to let the experiences that wanted to be in my life come through. Now you may be thinking, food doesn’t have that much power or that much purpose. I beg to differ. If truly, all is made of energy and that energy has its own drive and direction then the atoms that make up food also has these qualities. We align or do not align with that flow. So as we work to release resistance and fear (how many times have we demonized different types of foods from fats, salt, and even meat) throughout our lives here’s a quick recipe for a soup that will get you going *wink wink* in more ways than one.

Rose’s Clear You Out Smoothie

1 Tablespoon of Chia Seeds

2-3 Stalks of Fennel

Handful of Dandelion Root

4-5 Leaves of Kale

2 Stalks Celery

1 Lemon

2 Apples (Honey Crisp are delicious)

Here’s to getting things moving in the New Year!

April Writing Prompt

Good morning lovies,

April brings us fully into the Aries/I AM energy. As the first Western zodiac sign, the beginning of a new season, and the representation of the Magician card we look at our WILL. What we are able to create through our desires, strength, and refusal to give up because we believe so deeply that we can MANIFEST from our own sovereign power.

Sovereign: New Moon in Aries

What do you stand for? Family, love, justice, peace? Now is a time of contemplation of where and how we have developed our culture, values, and beliefs. The ways that WE in the I form decide what is valuable, what has worth. Over the past decade we have felt the shift in power as social capital produced in the form of mass-produced culture, messaging, and media has become overtly visible.

What are your values, your principles, your morals? There’s a beauty to the 2nd house that assists us in developing our talents into wealth. Not just financial but emotional, mental, social, and legacy wealth. But wealth without principles is just fertilizer in the bull’s field. It’s nothing. It does not stand. So, develop your values, find your principles and stand on them. Take in the lesson of the 8th house as guide. What are you leaving as an inheritance? What have you picked up as a part of your lineage? Your ancestral patterns carry on in much the same way as wealth and poverty are generational. What you cultivate MUST be GROUNDED in a strong ethical practice focused on equity and love.

The 2019 New Moon in Aries is a time for personal development. You’ll feel like taking some time away from external influences to find your own compass. There is strong 12th house energy that is active during this time and will remain active. With Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn in the 12th house this pull inwards takes us out of the surface and into the depths of cosmic truth, faith, trust, and love. What do we do with this energy? Use the energy of Capricorn to create a structure that allows you to access these realms without losing yourself. As you come to find your values, truth and purpose take small steps to align with your being through ritual and practice. The only difference between the sacred and the profane is our perspective and intention. Set the intention that your journey is sacred and let that shape your routine.

One step at a time lovies.
