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!

June’s Planetary Placements

June Placements 12 Mercury moves into Cancer

Our communication softens and becomes more nurturing. It’s time for us to connect with our hearts and speak our truths. Mercury in Cancer will cause you to find a cuddle buddy or someone who you can have all the deep heart wrenching discussions about your family, friends, and dreams.

June 13 New Moon in Gemini: This is a super busy new moon that I’ll cover soon in the New Moon reading. For now, here’s the planetary breakdown.

Pluto/ Saturn in Capricorn and Jupiter in Scorpio are in retrograde.

Mercury, and Uranus in Taurus

Mars in Aquarius

Sun in Gemini

Mercury in Cancer

Venus in Leo

Neptune in Pisces

June 16 Uranus semi-square Neptune

Uranus the planet of revolutions and advanced communication creates a bit of friction against Neptune the planet of dreams and the subconscious. On the surface you are rebelling against conditions that cause oppression for yourself and others. This could be in the realm of economics in that you are wanting to become a part or support more radical different forms of commerce. Yet, you might be too scared that you will lose the little bit of control you do have if you get directly involved. This is a good time to review of where you invest your time and energy. Be brave and willing to stand up for what you believe in. This is a time to action against oppression. A new world is coming.

June 18 Saturn quincunx True node and Neptune retrograde

Saturn quincunx True Node: You are called to following your true purpose. It is time to connect your vocation with your higher calling. Doing so through a voice of just power that is confident but not self-centered is vital to your success. You are being tempted to exploit your influence or wield it over others to serve yourself and not the greater good. Prejudice and judgement are signs that you are not moving towards your purpose but being sidetracked. Use your powers for equality not oppression.

Neptune Retrograde in Pisces: Retrograde season is in full swing! Neptune in retrograde in Pisces at this time is all about love, friendships, and our dream relationship. We are diving in deeply to the fantasy of what our love lives or life in general could be. We may encounter people or situations that seem to be the perfect manifestation of what we desire. Remember that in the sign and planet of dreams things are not always what they seem. Key words are to MOVE SLOW!! Enjoy yourself but take a realistic stance. Hold off on jumping into relationships or other dream propositions until Neptune stations direct on November 24th.

June 21 Summer Solstice sun in Cancer – Summer Solstice Reading coming next week!

Pluto/ Saturn in Capricorn, Jupiter in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pisces are in retrograde.

Uranus in Taurus

                Shadow of Mars retrograde in Aquarius

Sun and Mercury in Cancer

Venus in Leo

June 26

Mars Retrograde in Aquarius (Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune all in retrograde)

Mars in Aquarius represents a desire for independence and liberation. We are wanting to explore our ability to provide for yourself in an innovative way. You might be experimenting with new forms of technology, media, or currency. We are wanting to try new things and approaches to fixing our personal, community, societal, and global issues. Just be mindful of only wanting to try things your way. If you find yourself pushed into a corner you will rebel to keep your freedom. As this is Mars in retrograde we won’t be making progress as quickly as we could. There will be resistance to changing our society and how we make money. We’ve seen some of this coming in the decline in mining, farming, and other industries. We are on the verge of a surge in technological advancements. Stay on your toes, stay open to change, be patient.

Pluto Quintile Chiron

Pluto in Capricorn in reverse quintiles Chiron in Aries. Pluto in Capricorn (6th house) gives highlights the importance of hard work in achieving success. You are putting this energy towards healing and things that bring you back to life. We have been living according to what OTHERS want for us or what society says we should be doing. Pluto in Capricorn quintile Chiron in Aries gives us a push to align with our personal purpose through a creative outlet. This could be reinventing yourself, regenerating your business or approach to your job, or a literal creative pursuit. IF you have been working on debuting something new to the world now is the time when you may get that spark to really go after it or begin to share this information with others.

June 28 Full Moon in Capricorn – Check out the full moon reading to get this astrology breakdown.

Pluto/ Saturn in Capricorn, Jupiter in Scorpio, Neptune in Pisces and Mars in Aquarius are in retrograde.

                Mercury, and Uranus in Taurus

Sun and Mercury in Cancer

Venus in Leo

June 29 Mercury in Leo

Mercury in Leo in the 1st house brings us a great opportunity to develop our communication skills. If you are confident in your ability to engage others and speak your truth be mindful of the power that you hold during this placement. We are very magnetic, and you might draw to you more attention than you want especially if your opinions or truth triggers others. If you are not confident in your speech or presence, then you may be susceptible to others influence. Develop your own truth and opinions. Find productive ways to express yourself. If others are not open to what you have to say they many not be the audience for you.

Burn it Down Baby! 2018 Full Moon in Sagittarius

by julia wens (1)

It’s the last full moon of spring and we are going out with a party! It’s Gemini season with a full moon in Sagittarius meaning it’s time to take adventures, have fun, explore, break out of your doldrums and start connecting with the world around you. Here’s the thing, it may not feel like a party right now. There’s a lot of changes going on in the world. Uranus moved into Taurus, Jupiter trine Neptune, and Saturn quincunx True Node- all pointing towards us being aggressively pushed towards our purpose.

This is a full moon about learning to have hope during the hard time. Sagittarius is the sign that takes us into winter. Into a time of reflection and internal work. It is the curious energy that makes us curious enough about the darkness to cross over into death because it is only through death or change that we can be reborn.

During this full moon take a moment to connect to your ancestors and deities that protect you. Lean on them and their ability to see beyond this current moment to the outcome. This will build your energy and give you support so your heart can be open to new ways to let love in.

Above all else at this time find out what your dreams are, be brave, and follow them. There is so much love and magic available to you. When we trust in the universe then we trust that we have access to this power and love. We acknowledge that it is our right to be great and fulfill our purpose. For some this shift will come from leaning into their higher power. For others it will mean trusting that YOU are magic. Follow whichever path feels right for you. There is no wrong way to go about this process other than to avoid the healing and growth.

 

The Phoenix can not rise if it has not burned. Burn it down baby.

Spring Foods: Liquid Gold

Copy of Fire Cleanse

Greetings beloveds,

While we are working with the energy of fire, we cannot forget the magic of the liquid gold known as honey. Honey is a healing food which can be used in many different types of remedies both intentional and unintentional.

As it is fire’s season, finding ways to add a bit of fire to our foods helps align us with this seasons energy. There are so many ways to utilize honey whether it’s adding some to your tea, dessert, biscuits, oatmeal, bread, and countless other dishes. As one of the most versatile ingredients the options are almost limitless.

When you find yourself feeling sluggish take your favorite tea, add some honey and a tap of chili powder. This will add that spark that you need back to your physical form and spirit.

It is vital that we feed our spirit. That we support our bodies, heart, mind, and soul. That we find ways that allow for us to even if for a moment let ourselves focus on our own growth. Spring starts with the fire sign of Aries grounds in Taurus and ends with the sign of connection through communication Gemini. Honey creates those binds between the animal world, the plants, and us.

If you are opposed to the use of honey, there are other forms of sweeteners such as dates or stevia that also can provide a connection to the world around us. These additions to your diet will sweeten your disposition and view of the world without the sharpness of processed sugars that tax our bodies.

How do you incorporate honey or other sweeteners into your lifestyle?

Yoga to Improve Blood Circulation

Greetings beloveds,

We have moved into Taurus Season and it’s time to slow down a bit. Taurus energy is a slow but steady flow which grounds the fire energy of Aries which woke us up from our winter’s rest. We are slowing not to stop but to be more intentional in what we do. To carve out our actions so that everything we do is with purpose.

The circulatory system is ruled by fire and the blood. To improve your blood circulation and assist your reasoning process here is a quick yoga  routine to promote blood circulation.

Enjoy!
