16 May The week ahead: May 16th through May 22nd:
We have a full moon in the sign of Sagittarius on Saturday the 21st, and it looks to be fiery one. Sagittarius is a sign that loves to travel, learn new things and expand their horizons both spiritually and physically. They’re also quick to anger, acting rashly, and not tending to the details; something we’ll need to be on the lookout for this week. When full moons show up, they highlight our relationships and bring to a culmination something we started at the new moon (this recent new moon being on the 6th of May). Since Mars is also in the sign of Sagittarius right now (and retrograding–yay…) others as well as yourself might be crusading for your personal beliefs. I would normally see this as an empowering position, but if ego is attached to that belief, be careful how you respond to others or be ready for the possibility of some emotionally violent outbursts. So what can we do to work with this energy or make it work for us? First, make sure you get out and get active. Move your body or move your mind and expand what you think your capable of. Challenge yourself and show yourself what you can do! Sagittarius is an incredibly active sign, so follow suit and go on an adventure. Exercise is an amazing way to burn off some steam and to help you think clearly so you can respond to your situation instead of just reacting. Second, and most importantly, bring some higher ideals to the table. If someone is reacting like a lunatic, don’t green light yourself for some righteous rage right back–although it would feel mighty nice in the moment, you’ll be doing more harm than good. Instead, forgive and see this person for all they are–the good and the not so great. See how their ego is tied to their beliefs and learn how best to give distance when needed–see them as a teacher too! Some people are not going to be convinced of anything other than what they want (want being a key word here) to believe, so let them and then do what’s best for you. If you’re bent on making them see your side of the situation (especially if this is your millionth go around), your ego is too involved as well, so don’t get it twisted. Sometimes, silence is the best answer and speaks volumes our words could never carry. Be wise, be centered, and when is doubt, challenge yourself and you’ll be using this fiery energy to it’s greatest potential.
Think about drawing down the moon on the 21st. If you like to do incantations, prayer or mediation at the full moon, this will add some pep to your step. I like this Pagan/Wiccan incantation I found that says, “Mother Goddess, lend me your light. Give me your power on this faithful night. I invoke you into my being and soul. Fill up my vessel, make me feel whole. I stand before you in awe and in love. I cherish your gifts you send from above. I ask you tonight to show unto me. My mother, my Goddess, So Mote It Be.” Feel free to change this in any way you like or to make it your own, any way you see fit. Make sure to face the full moon and out stretch your arms so you can take everything in. Enjoy this intense energy!
Go ahead and pick a card from above (pick one, two or all three cards–pick what you’re drawn to) The stone you see in the picture above is scolecite. Scolecite is one of the high vibration crystals, and is a strong stone to aid communication, especially with spirit, and has a strong resonance within the chakras from the heart up. It is a stone that awakens the heart, and facilitates deep inner peace and spiritual transformation. Once you have used it you will appreciate the wonderful gifts that it brings into your life. This lovely crystal helps you to bring the things that you desire into your life, as it helps you to take control of your life. It is wonderful crystal to aid you to feel calmer and more relaxed, and having a tumble stone under your pillow is very beneficial to aid restful sleep.

If you chose card #2: Your message this week is about important psychic insights. Events behind the scenes. Release fears that hold you back. Your card goes on to say that everyone experiences times in their lives when they are afraid or insecure. Sometimes these fears are based on external factors you can see, and sometimes worries stem from irrational or unreal concerns. In both cases it’s important to go within and listen to your intuition as to what to do next. Ask your inner self about the source of your anxiety, and trust your guidance. The Angels sent you this card because this is a time of powerful intuition and psychic ability. However, your greatest insights will be about yourself. Embrace this period of self-awareness to overcome past blocks that have held you back. Awaken to truths about yourself that you’ve kept hidden, and see your brilliant light.

Your card goes on to say that if this is about a situation: Now is the time to stretch your wings and really fly. You’ve been underestimating yourself and your abilities. Believe in all that you can do and accomplish. You’ll naturally attract other people to assist you. Assert your independence and creativity. If this is about a person: A person with a magnetic personality who is good-natured and loves life. Someone with great self-confidence who is astonishingly well-rounded in terms of talents and skills. Attractive. Warm. Intelligent. Graceful. Capable. Active. Convincing. Difficult to throw off guard. Additional Meanings: Trusting your intuition • Balancing home and career • A desire for attention and recognition.
My hope for you this week is that you can stay calm under fire. I hope that you can respond in the moment instead of reacting and that you can see with clear eyes and heart the person in front of you–especially if it’s yourself. When in doubt, shut your mouth and let your silence do the talking. Pay attention to the details in your work and focus on what your mission is, too. It’s time to expand your horizons, so back your bags and go an adventure! Express your anger or frustration by moving your body or mind in healthy ways, so when you come back to the table for more discussions or choices, you’re anchored in unconditional love.
This is your week! Make it an amazing one 🙂
