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.

28 Days of Love: Basking in the Glow of Love

Screen-shot-2012-07-23-at-12.57.02-PM.png (558×310)

Greetings beloveds,

Can you believe it? 28 Days of Love is coming to a close today. Over the past 4 weeks we have connected with our heart, mind, body, and home/living spaces to find clarity and bring ourselves into alignment with the energy of love.

How do you feel? Take a moment to integrate the information and lessons that you have learned over the past month into your life completely. It may take some time to feel and know what changes you have made or may still need to make. Behavior and thought process changes enhance our states of being. Above all else I hope that this time has brought about compassion for yourself and others. Love is so much more than warm fuzzy feelings. It is the basis of our existence. Through love we find ourselves. Through love we find our purpose.

So I send you forth with love, always and forever.

28 Days of Love: Day 7 Soul Love

Greetings beloveds,

It’s the final day of week one in our 28 Days of Love. This week we focused on connecting to our hearts, bringing our hearts into alignment with our higher-self, and nourishing our hearts through our diets. Our hearts long for us to listen to them. To let them take the lead while it works with our spirit, mind, and body. We may speak of our souls, thoughts, beliefs, actions, and heart as if they are separate entities existing outside of each other. Yet they are always connected. Always acting in coordination with each other even when we find ourselves in dangerous or painful situations. Our souls are love. When we are disconnected from our true state of being, we believe in scarcity, separation, division, and lack. We are not these things. We are not bound by the rules of society, the government, or religious bodies. We our bound only by what we can imagine. So now I ask you to dream. To use these exercises from the past week to consciously connect your heart and soul.

We will soon cover the importance of shifting our thoughts towards love, moving our bodies in in ways that connect with our heart, and creating sacred space. Open yourself up to the possibilities of what your life could be. These 28 Days are just the beginning to a lifetime of Love.

New Moon in Capricorn: The Value of Your Talents

Greetings beloveds!

This new moon is ruled by Earth energy. Not only is this moon in Capricorn but it is joined by Pluto, the Sun, and Saturn in the 6th house then Mercury in the 5th house. 6th house energy calls our attention to discernment, knowledge, talents, and learned skills. This placement of planets suggests that now is a wonderful time to access our current skills:

Your close friends or social circle may be able to help you identify these skills or have ideas on where you can build or use these skills.

Concentrate on ways to bring comfort to others and yourself. Things that provide safety, nurturing, and a space where folks feel that they can be their true selves.

If you find that you have a difficult time with this process this indicates shadow work surrounding root, sacral, solar plexus, and heart chakra characteristics. An exploration of how to integrate and acknowledge these truths can be obtained through reflection upon the reasons why you would not be interested in using your talents to assist others. Are there fears around this surrounding you not being worthy or good enough to help others? An idea that others are not deserving of this assistance? Or perhaps you have tried this before and was unsuccessful. A fear of humiliation, failure, judgement, and shame cloud your drive to follow your purpose. Through shadow work you can acknowledge the drive behind these barriers and find ways to use them to your benefit.

This reflection and shadow work are grounded in mindfulness, meditation, and ritual. Being willing to sit with your dreams, fears, and ask for divine assistance takes a level of trust and acceptance that Capricorn energy is uniquely built to support. Capricorn is represented by the goat-fish. A being that is grounded in earthly energy of hard work and perseverance while also being able to navigate the depths of our emotions and subconscious. This is the energy of devotion which comes from communion with Spirit and building a relationship of trust.

With love,

Fall Equinox Reading: Reaping Abundance

Copy of Autumn Equinox

Welcome to fall lovebugs!

It’s pouring rain as I write. The days are getting shorter and the temps are slowly dropping. Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin bread, and soups of every kind are advertised everywhere. Although, it was still summer, the stores have been full of fall décor. Energetically, we are slowing down. Taking more time to see, feel, and be in the world around us. We move from our external to an internal focus. It calls us to see ourselves as more than feeling beings but thinking logical persons who can take their emotions and will power to turn it into more. To be more than just selfish beings that live for creating an amazing world for themselves but a General Reading.

This fall look at the areas of your life where you are flourishing. Have you been writing, drawing, working on a business, decorating, saving up funds for a trip or purchase. Whatever you have been working towards over the past 2 seasons is starting to blossom into a bountiful harvest. At this time, clear out what you picked up over the summer that is taking your attention but not building towards your greater goals.

 

October

October sees us prospering! We are growing, expanding and dreaming of even more ways to bring more love, money, and community into our lives. But are you too comfortable? Are you afraid to break out of your routine to see what else might be available for you? This is a time to explore your perspective towards limits. When we avoid or resist expansion we are expressing that we do not trust ourselves or the universe to provide. Examine where you can grow and begin to put out some feelers. You never know what can come from taking a step on faith.

November:

November shows us the power of community and networking. We are not solitary beings even if we do not have many human connections, the plant and animal kingdom are just as important to our well-being. Take time to build and support your community. As we enter into the season of thanksgiving, give thanks for things big and small that bring you joy. The more that you express how much you enjoy your life and world the more that you will receive more positive experiences. At best, it will make the negative experiences less impactful.

December:

We focused on our community in November and now as we are in the depths of the underworld we are called to look at our personal stories. This month write down you current life story. What happens to you during the day? What thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations did you experience today? Now, around the 20th as we get closer to the winter solstice, spend a day or so dreaming of what you would like your life to look like. Write out what a day, week, month, or even a year would look like for you if you were living completely from a space of expansion and love. Find items that represent this energy and place them on your persona altar to be energetically charged over the winter.

This is a season of getting our thoughts clear. I love you.

Find Your Water Type: Solid, Liquid or Gas

 

IN PARIS (1)

 

Greetings beloveds,

We are firmly in the season of water, rebirth, and healing. To expand our concepts of how we relate to water let’s talk about the different versions of water and how we take on these characteristics.

Solid: When water is  a solid, the molecules are moving slower and spread out taking up more space. This makes them less dense so that ice weighs less than water as a liquid. Ice represents slowing down and taking our time. It is the energy of observation, being outside of time, and rumination. When we are dealing with heavy issues we need that density to feel closer to the earth and ground ourselves in the reality of what needs to be addressed.

Shadow: When it is too cold, there is a limitation in what is possible because everything SLOWS down. During the winter, in areas that experience ice and snow, this type of weather can bring death. Either from blocking access to resources, freezing temperatures, or other complications. In all forms water can give life and water can take life. When we slow down to the point where we are frozen in place no longer growing or living fully, we lose our most valuable resource: time.

Liquid: This is the form of water we are most familiar with. It is the water we drink, use to cook, bath, clean, play, and restore our souls. This is the energy of temperance-balance. Too cold and it begins to freeze. Too hot and it’s uncomfortable to work with. Yet water flows throughout our world providing life without discrimination.

Shadow: Anyone who has ever been in a thunderstorm, tropical storm, hurricane or other weather occurrence knows the power of water in it’s liquid form. On the other hand, not having enough water is just as catastrophic causing our bodies, the land, all living things to eventually shrivel up and die. Through the shadow of liquid water, we come to appreciate the importance of balance, compassion, and the fragility of life. We realize that in order to survive we must take care of ourselves and each other, otherwise we will perish.

Gas: Vapor as the form of water that is least visible is as a gaseous state. It is ALWAYS present around us. Vapor represents the lighter side of water energy that does more than flows, it flies. The same element that fuels our body and allows for us to create also calls us to throw off the baggage which keeps us captive. Vapor is free of restraints and cannot be contained. It is the spark of life that lifts us out of the doldrums into the freedom of infinite space.

Shadow: What could be the shadow of such a light and airy form of water? Lack of depth. When we move to far into our imaginations, lack connections to our physical realm, or avoid responsibilities because they feel like “too much” we eventually evaporate into air. We completely disconnect from who we are and where we came from. Although it is tempting to not have anything that holds you down or has negative energy, without doing the work we miss the opportunity to grow. Allow yourself to expand without forgetting that this is a process that will bring you back to this moment of weightlessness again and again.

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.
