The week ahead: September 8th through September 14th:


Today is the full moon in Pisces! Check my Facebook page ( later tonight for a helpful article to understand the aspects at play. I love full moons. I always feel energized and excited for the energy that builds. Full moons are also a time of culmination, so you may see a lot of projects coming to fruition or partnerships that no longer work may end. This full moon is in Pisces and Pisces rules the realm of illusion and disillusionment, fantasy, drama and art, and spirituality, so you may see some secrets revealed or a hidden aspect of you may come to light. Your living dreams may reach actualization or your sleeping dreams may show you what you’ve been searching for. The real lesson here is to figure out what is illusion and what is real in your life. What is attainable for you and what is just a wish? It’s important that you’re clear with yourself about what you truly want from any aspect of your world. This way when you start to question what it is you’re working towards, you have a clear understanding of your motivations and needs. These examples are just that; examples, so pay attention to how this full moon affects you and what comes to light during this time.

Go ahead and pick a card from above. The cards are numbered from left to right; 1, 2, 3. The stone in the picture above is sodalite. Sodalite Stone has a strong vibration that will bring your attention to the qualities of idealism and truth. Its energy may stimulate you to live up to your own ideals and ideas, about the nature of truth. It has strong metaphysical properties that may stimulate latent creative abilities and it aids teachers, writers and students to understand the deeper philosophical principles. Its energy is particularly helpful to aid the development of psychic abilities, and with developing intuition. It is excellent to aid communication and may help you if you are doing public speaking. It may help you to understand the patterns behind such things as astrology and the tarot.


If you chose card #1: Your message this week is to take time to rest and recuperate rather than continuing your striving. Your card goes on to say that the irony of this is that resting and conserving your energy, you can actually mobilize your internal resources for the next cycle of work and accomplish that much more. In this fast-paced world with all of its pressures that impinge upon you, it’s difficult to take regular periods of time off, yet it’s critical to your health and well-being to do so. Let this rest period be an opportunity when you do things that help your body recover from the stresses and strains of your most recent activities. Sleep in, get a massage, spend some time playing with a friend, take a salt bath, get out of town and explore the woods–anything that will bring you peace of mind. At the conclusion of along spell of continuous, stressful activity, even when it has been productive, many people don’t allow themselves a period of respite, and instead jump into another task right away without relaxing and enjoying the fruits of their labor. It’s most unnatural, but in a caffeinated society where technology has created instant access to phones, e-mails, and the Internet, it’s easy to give away your power of choice by reacting to a false sense of immediacy and urgency to these trappings of civilization. Turn off your phone and computer, and enjoy the sunset. These periods of rest needn’t be lengthy, but you do need to implement them–especially right now. Additional Meanings: Perseverance • Migration • Levelheadedness • Loyalty • Family • Determination • Resourcefulness • Quest • Integrity • Purposeful • Imprinting • Compassion • Conservation. 

If you chose card #2: Your message this week is that you’re overlooking some important details, so pay close attention to what’s going on. Your card goes on to say that you need to pay closer attention to other people’s body language–how they move, their gestures, facial expressions, and general posture. When you focus not only on what individuals are saying but also on their body language, you’ll find that you have considerably more information that you can use to understand what they’re really communicating, for body language typically reveals far more about people than what they’re verbally expressing. Sit back when there are people around, and simply observe for awhile. Look to see if what others say is congruent with their body language, and watch for any discrepancies. In other words, don’t always take other people at their word. Also pay closer attention to agreements and contracts right now. Take your time to completely understand any agreement, finding out as much as you can by asking questions and consulting friends and experts to get their advice. Be careful, however, not to get bogged down in too much detail. Walk the fine line between scrutinizing a contract (verbal ones included) for an inordinate amount of time, thus remaining stuck in indecisiveness due to your need to be 100 percent certain that you’ve covered everything, and rushing into something impulsively and reflexively based on emotional appeal. Additional Meanings: Caution • Scrutiny • Details • Fertility • Alertness • Efficiency • Thoughtfulness • Determination • Nit-picking • Orderliness • Fastidiousness • Abundance.  

If you chose card #3: Your message this week is to trust your instincts to discern the truth of the situation. Your card goes on to say that your instinctual self is that aspect of you that sends signals to your brain directly from your body. It’s what’s responsible for your survival–particularly when you’re in a life-threatening situation and must avoid danger by fighting, fleeing, or remaining still and quiet. Your instinct dictates which choice most likely ensures your perpetuation. It’s much more primal than intellect, and it’s what connects humans with all other animals. The trust for your instinctual signals can be modified and distorted by conditioning, especially childhood conditioning. While you’re repeatedly told to distrust what your body is telling you or you’ve faced life-threatening situations with no escape, this exquisite survival mechanism becomes clouded at the least and completely suppressed at the extreme. It’s replaced by a generalized fear and agitation that gets projected onto relatively benign situations, or else a psychic numbness that anesthetizes the senses and severely limits your body’s ability to process environmental cues for danger. This sensory numbness also limits your ability to fully experience pleasure. Take the time to tune into your gut feelings, using slow, deep breathing as an access code. Listen with all your senses to discern what your body is telling you, and use your intellect to interpret whether it’s a conditioned reaction or instinctual response. With practice, you’ll refine your perceptual capabilities so that you can completely trust what you feel. Additional Meanings: Confidence • Secrets • Protection • Respect • Survival • Authority • Focus • Action • Unpredictability • Ancestors • Shape-shifting • Solitude • Endurance • Assertiveness • Divinity.

My hope for you this week is that you’re clear about the direction you want to take in whatever endeavor suits you. I hope that you take the time to clearly understand your feelings, wants, needs, and motivations. By separating what’s most important from what isn’t, you can cut a clear path towards wherever you want to go. Be brave, be bold, and be you. We’ll all be cheering you on!

This is your week! Make it an amazing one 🙂
