14 Oct The week ahead: October 14th through October 20th of 2019:
How are you guys feeling, fresh off the stank of yesterdays full moon in Aries? You might be a bit hungover from the energy and asking yourself what your next steps are. I feel like the full moon offered a vantage point where you could see some possibilities present for you, but maybe you’re also unsure of how to reach these budding dreams and it’s leaving you feeling frustrated. Maybe instead of taking a next step, this full moon was asking you to continue to look at your dreams and aspirations and envision something bigger and better for yourself. If you still feel frustrated or uninspired, it’s a call to see that you still haven’t found your solution, next step, or big aspiration–so don’t give up the search for what sets your soul on fire (in a good way) or even, don’t give up finding a way to your goal. If Aries love anything, it’s a good fight, so use this energy to relentlessly pursue your happiness.
On the other hand, if you feel energized and ready to take on the world after you discovered where your passion lies, this time will be about setting up foundations to support your next leap. It can even solidify for you that your dreams and aspirations, or possibly even what you stand for, is a true calling inside of you; answering this call is no longer an option, and you must follow the path that calls your name.
This week is all about that passion and drive of starting something new too, especially considering that the overarching theme is the Knight of Wands. This dude doesn’t slow down for anyone, and once he gets a solid idea in his head, all possibilities break wide open and show promise and excitement. The Knight needs adventure and a journey to take him to new heights, fueled by drive, curiosity, and wanting to win. If we take away anything that we’ve learned from the full moon yesterday, may it be a clear understanding (or push in the direction) of where we want to be, doing what brings us joy, that offers endless possibilities for growth, expansion, and personal power.
So how can we use the energy of this week to help us? My advice is this: How can you beak free from any fear or limitations that may be holding you back? What goal makes you feel joy or excitement at the pure thought of it, and how can you bring more of this into your life? What did you want to be as a kid and are you doing that now? This week, begin your adventure–you’re ready.
Go ahead and pick a card from above (pick one, two, or all three cards–choose what you’re drawn to). The top card is the overarching theme for everyone and it’s something to keep in mind or to remember, no matter what energy shows up for you as the week goes on. The stone you see in the picture above is aragonite. Aragonite calms, centers, stabilizes and increases the ability to remain patient, even in the most challenging of circumstances. It will enhance and encourage sensitivity and generosity. Aragonite can be an aid for those who lack discipline and self-control, and can help one to overcome stagnation in their personal growth. Physically, Aragonite’s ability to raise vibrational energies of the body can assist with all types of healing. Aragonite can help to speed up the recovery from broken bones and nerve damage. Its highly grounding energies allow Aragonite to help relieve stress and nerve problems that may lead to restlessness, twitching or spasms. Sleep with Aragonite under the pillow to relieve insomnia, or carry in your pocket for continuous grounding influence throughout the day. Aragonite can also be used to enhance the absorption of calcium throughout the skeletal structure and to ameliorate pain and chills. If you’d like to learn more about this stone, please go here.
Overarching theme: Knight of Wands: the Knight of Wands embodies a knack for adventure that goes beyond logic and convention. This is the type of spark that surges within you when you have nothing to lose, with no fear, no doubt, and an optimized sense of freedom. This confidence leads this person forward with no thought of potential consequences along the way, because hey, what could possibly go wrong when you have raw inspiration driving you? The Knight of Wands is one of the most visionary people in the Tarot, as they seem to exist outside of the space of their body, living in liminal doorways that lead them anywhere they could ever possibly imagine. This is a powerful frequency to align with, and of course, it has its risks when proper planning or foresight are not taken into consideration, but with all the leaps and bounds, the dreamer has the power to move mountains, break paradigms, and build entirely new worlds and inventions. Questions to ask yourself right now: Am I ready to embark on a quest of my own making? How can I plan ahead and make a concrete plan? Your mantra for the week: I walk through every guiding doorway. I break free from all limitations. Additional Meanings: Restless • Quest • Impatient • Daring • Adventure.
