The week ahead: August 3rd to August 9th of 2020:

We have a full moon tonight in the sign of Aquarius–get ready for shit to get weird 😂

I’m kidding, but not really; ruled by the planet Uranus, Aquarius is known for sudden insights out of thin air, unexpected changes of course, being authentically themselves, and genius that teeters on bonkers. Most importantly, these guys give all the fucks for their communities and the world at large, especially if there are concerns around human, environmental (especially water) or animal rights. Being an air sign, boring them is tantamount to torture, so you may be feeling like you’re ready to be your with friend group or community, longing for mental stimulation. Being quarantined has been hard on all of us for a multitude of reasons, but this week, you may feel like you’re ready to break free and be with your people, come what may.

Just pull on that innovative Aquarian energy and use technology to make that happen so no one has to potentially get hurt– masks count as technology, so please use one if you’re going out into public and especially if you’re joining in on any of the BLM marches. I have a feeling that during and after the full moon, the numbers at the marches are only going to get bigger and more beautiful. Even though Aquarius is an air sign and not particularly known for being emotional, with a full moon, these themes (and our emotions) will be tugging at our heart strings, begging us to do something, or be in involved in some way to help the greater masses, and hopefully too, bring us together in a way that solidifies us rather than being further divided.

Allow inspiration to guide you right now and pay attention to any repeating messages you receive. If you’re not sure which way to go, tap into your inner child (Leo season) and ask your 10 years old self what they would do. Something tells me your inner child is actually an inner badass and is asking you to take a stand and let your weird flag fly. Whatever happens, be true to yourself, connect with your community, and stay weird 💖

So how do we work with the energy of this week? My advice is this: Cleanse yourself in water, do your psychic work with water, do your spell work with water, and drink more water! I now Aquarius is an air sign, but they’re also the water bearers, so working with water corresponds with them, and it being the full moon, I highly recommend you put out a bowl of water tonight to soak up all the beautiful Aquarian energy and use it to water your plants, do any magickal work, and to drink.

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 sunstone. Sunstone is an abundance stone. It encourages independence and originality, is inspirational in revealing talents, and attracts fame and unexpected prosperity. It is an excellent “good luck” crystal for competitions. Wear Sunstone to feel alive and enthusiastic. It increases vitality and is beneficial in starting, and maintaining, a fitness program or aerobic activity, and for occupations requiring high energy throughout the day. As a workplace crystal, Sunstone increases your profile and brings opportunities for leadership and promotion. Place next to your computer when advertising your own business or services online. Sunstone provides a source of strength if you are dependent on others emotionally, or have suffered the sudden loss of a partner. It helps alleviate fearfulness and stress, and protects against those who drain your energies or finances. It is also an excellent crystal for phobia sufferers to ease fear of the dark, enclosed places, or the presence of other triggers. Worn as a ring on the receptive hand, Sunstone helps one receive what is needed and desired. On the transmitting hand, it channels multiple healings and blessings to others. Worn as a pendant, Sunstone brings the heart’s wisdom into alignment with the mind’s inspirations. If you’d like to learn more about this stone, please go here. 

Overarching theme: The Empress: When the empress shines through, don’t be surprised if new sparks of inspiration begin to stir within your heart. This is a soulful awakening that cultivates fresh projects, adventures, or spiritual insights. It may also point to birthing energies, evoking a vital resonance with the natural rhythms and cycles of creation. Ruled by Venus, The Empress embodies a potent symbol of sensuality and divine feminine love, encouraging us to reconnect with that sacred part of ourselves. How can you nurture this gentle gift and celebrate its wisdom? When we tap into her loving guidance, we become more in-tune with our mind, body, and spirit, which speaks to the very root of this harmonious key. She is a life force. The Mother. The Universal spark. Questions to ask yourself this week: What am I now cultivating in my life? How can I reconnect with my mind, body, and spirit? Additional Meanings: Goddess • Nature • Divine feminine • Abundance.

 

 
If you chose card #1: Your message this week is about the Five of Pentacles. Your card goes on to say that the Five of Pentacles speaks of clouded states of disharmony or loss that appear through misfortune. This may also indicate an actual state of illness, a lack of finances, or a feeling of rejection that leaves us deflated or scorned. Very often, these painful phases corrode a lasting impression on our spirit, slowly depleting our sense of security or peace. Over time, if we continue to dwell in this void, we may end up accumulating feelings of helplessness and victimhood, and may become co-dependent on others. Know that despite the hardships you may be experiencing, there is still hope and support available. You have the power to come out of the situation in a new and positive light. Help may be closer than you think – is there a friend, loved one, or person you trust, who you can reach out to at this time? Questions to ask yourself right now: How can I shift this challenge by reaching out for help? Are there any burdens or pains that need my attention? Your mantra: I rise above the ashes that divide me. I am ready to shake the shadow free. Additional Meanings: Lack • Hardship • Over speculation • Manifestation.
 

 
If you chose card #2: Your message this week is about The Hanged Man. Your card goes on to say that if you are feeling as though you are standing at a crossroads, it may be an opportune time to fully absorb the directions or options that are being presented to you. It could be that you need to let go of something, or make some kind of sacrifice, which may initially leave you feeling vulnerable, raw, or exposed. Know that despite the sense of unease, this is a transitional phase in which you can recalibrate your beliefs, situation, or life goals in the long run. This key may also come as a result of life altering moments or experiences that have the potential to radically transform or shake your worldview. Connect back to the root of your intent and the inner pathways of your heart. Where do they want to lead from here? Questions to ask yourself right now: What are my options at this time? How am I honoring the path of my heart? Additional Meanings: Crossroads • Patience • Surrender • Intention • Sacrifice.
 

 
If you chose card #3: Your message this week is about the Knight of Wands. Your card goes on to say that 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 also one of the most visionary people in the Tarot, but 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 is 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 upon a quest of my own making? How can I plan ahead and make a concrete plan? Your mantra: I walk through every guiding doorway. I break free from all limitations. Additional Meanings: Restless • Quest • Impatient • Daring • Adventure.
 
This is your week! Make it an amazing one 😊
