18 May The week ahead: May 18th through May 24th of 2020:
We have a new moon coming up this week on the 22nd in the sign of Gemini but first, we move into Gemini season on the 20th.
Gemini is an air sign who loves to communicate. Information is power here, and the exchange of new, useful, and exciting news makes these guys light up. You need something from a Gemini but you don’t have anything to trade? If you’ve got some juicy gossip, you do now! Really I’ve found the keyword with my most beloved Gemini’s is “new”, and if you start to bore them or you aren’t bringing in fresh data, these guys will just tune you out. They need to be stimulated mentally, so you need you need to bring the wit, the humor and some serious debating skills.
I grew up in a house where my father and both of my sisters are Gemini’s (the girls were born 11 months a part), and after that insanity, I promised myself I’d never marry one, but of course, what did I do? You guessed it, I was dumb and fell in love and I married a Gemini. But, my own personal Venus is in Gemini, meaning I too need mental stimulation in love including someone with a good sense of humor, I need new and exciting things to be happening on a regular basis, and honestly, someone to spill all the tea with–I don’t know if anyone but a Gemini could fulfill my requirements.
This new moon, and with retrograde Venus in Gemini right alongside it, is going to have us busying ourselves with all the themes previously expressed, but there may be an emphasis on how we communicate about who we are and what we value, maybe what we personally value or find beautiful about ourselves, sharing what we’ve been up to behind the scenes, and ready for connections that makes us laugh, challenge us mentally, or make us feel alive again.
This week should be buzzing with verbal activity.
So call the people you love and miss. Let them know what you value about them and how they make you a better person because of their existence, but throw in a couple laughs to keep it airy. Write a letter to your state rep and let them know they’re fucking up and how you’d like things to be fixed. Do your research into new and exciting things coming up in your industry and spread the word to those you think will appreciate it. Most of all, remind yourself of your importance and keep the channels of communication open to your higher self. Sometimes the only info we need, comes from our very own well of knowledge 💖
So how do we work with the energy of this week? My advice is this: Bloom where you’re planted. Sometimes the only thing we can do, is to work with the energy, the information, the materials, or the resources we currently have. Instead of pinning away for that day in the future where we pretend everything is back to normal and can live our previous lives, it behooves us to be present in this moment and make the best of what we have right now. On the surface, there may not be anything magical to this, but I promise that if you make this a daily activity to go with the flow and work with what you’ve got, not only do you become more resourceful, you also learn ways to overcome obstacles, and you transform what was once stuck, into an open road of your choosing. And if that ain’t magic, I don’t know what is.
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 pearl. Pearls bring centering and a calming reflection, as well as attune you to the ebb and flow of life. They promote faith, honesty, purity, wisdom, charity and personal integrity. Pearls soothe and heal the negativity and struggle that occurs in your life be it occasionally or for a long period of time. It surrounds negative energy with light and as a result heals negative thoughts and thought forms. This stone moves negative attachments and psychic attacks out of the aura, helps to release negative karmic patterns and fills the aura with healing light
During meditation this stone will encourage money to flow into your life, and see yourself using it wisely. Money is energy and squandering it leaves you little in return. Pearls will assist you in manifesting what you need at that time and place. Pearls have water and lunar energy. As they easily absorb both positive and negative thoughts and emotions they need to be cleaned and recharged often, as they will hold the energy indefinitely. Place them in moonlight to recharge these crystals. Pearls help in the search for higher wisdom and truth. It will assist you in seeing and dealing with the truth of your self and others.
