The week ahead: January 19th through January 25th:

We have new moon in Aquarius at 0 degrees on the 20th. This new moon is another one of those super moons, which means it’s closer to the Earth in its orbit. It also means this moon will pack more of a punch for whatever house Aquarius sits in for you. You can find this out by googling free natal chart, or by going to cafe astrology and getting a free chart there. Radical, powerful, and lasting change is promised here if you’re able to let go of the past. This new moon is all about being present while prepping for your bright future. On the 20th, I suggest writing on a piece of paper all the things (based on which house Aquarius sits in for you) that you’d like to let go of. For example, Aquarius sits in my 7th house, which talks about partnerships, relationships, social life, and all that carries us beyond our personal self into an awareness of other people, community, and the like. If you’ve been following me, you know I’ve been focused on my friendships and setting boundaries lately. So it makes sense that this new moon would be helping me to start a radical new change to the way I handle my relationships, how I may start to choose more wisely the people in my life based on what I want, and how it makes me more aware of the type of community that I want to be apart of going forward. At this new moon, I would write down what I no longer accept in my relationships and social life, and below that, what I do want/expect in my life right now and going forward. I literally see it as me shedding the old skin and emerging into my new life. You can burn or bury the piece of paper (I like burning. It’s WAY more dramatic and fun 🙂 ) and do something else to make it feel like a ceremony or ritual to welcome in the new. I would normally say to initiate your new rules right away, but we have a mercury retrograde occurring the very next day (the 21st until the 11th of February) and it’s not advised to start anything new yet. Take your time and make sure what you asked for is really working for you. Slow down and examine other areas of your life as well and see what else needs tweaking or adjustment. Once the 11th of February rolls around, do what you gotta do and make this change have roots. For me, that would mean letting go of relationships that no longer work, putting my effort into the ones that do, while welcoming new relationships aligned with what I asked for. Whatever house Aquarius lies in for you, I promise it will be a time of letting go, allowing, and integrating the highest good for you into your life.

Go ahead and pick a card (or as many as you’d like) from above. The stone 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 chose card #1: Your message this week is about ancestors. Your card goes on to say that you have within you the blood of your ancestors. You are deeply connected to your lineage, the most immediate proof of that being the physical resemblance you have to your mother and father and perhaps even your grandparents. Yet beyond that, although unknown to your usual senses, you are connected to an ancestry that reaches back through the millenia. This is the time to call upon those ancestors, those who are of your bloodline as well as those ancient ones who have walked the land that you now walk. In many indigenous cultures, it is believed that the essence of your ancestors inhabits many of the physical aspects of the land. In other words, they are in the trees, the water, the air, the animals, the stones – – their blood being in the very dirt and sand you tread upon. Next time you are outside, allow your senses to open to those ancestors who abide in the physical world. And anytime at all, allow your heart to open to the spirits to whom you are related through your heredity and those to whom you are connected by virtue of the land upon which you live.

If you chose card #2: Your message this week is about communion. Your card goes on to say that whenever you experience a heartfelt communion with some physical expression of life — plant, animal, human, or anything else — it is only then that you can truly feel how your life force is similar to the life force that is all around you. It is only a matter of the differences in form. An essence is articulated into the physical world in a multitude of ways that is the same in everything and everyone, although it manifests in various shapes and characteristics. This essence is Spirit emanating from the core of all things. Communion with Nature is essential for you now. Take some time to do an open-eyed meditation with any nearby animal or plant. Relax your body as much as possible, breathe consciously, and keep your attention in the life form you are communing with. After a few moments, you will notice a sense of the boundaries dissolving, a melding of the “I” and “Thou”. You may even receive messages or impressions as you find yourself in the flow of unspoken communication.

If you chose card #3: Your message this week is about ancient healing wisdom. Your card goes on to say that all illnesses, whether physical, emotional, or psychological, stem from an illness of Spirit. It may be due to soul loss, psychic intrusions, ancestral karma, or any other spiritual causes that could be contributing to the manifest condition for which you seek help. Whatever other methodologies or remedies you pursue, weather allopathic, alternative, or a combination, let the healing of your spirit be your priority. Know that the deepest spiritual wound is the illusion of being separate from Source, God, Great Spirit, or whatever name you give the Creator. It is the trick of the mind that created this sense of separation. This is a time for deep healing, starting with your relationship with Spirit. Call upon your spirit guides and ancestors to help you with any emotional, mental, or physical healing that you need. Call upon the Creator to assist you in mending any rift in your relationship with spirit. Choose thoughts that support wholeness and well-being. Allow any darker thoughts or shadows to appear as well, but simply observe them as they arise in consciousness, then dissolve. See yourself as healed, whole, and complete, and it shall be.

My hope for you this week is that you’re brave in the face of what you must change. That you can shore up your strength and find the courage to cut the ties to the past that may be holding you back, and forge new, strong bonds with the person you wish to be. Know that you have control over what happens, and you make the choices and decisions here. Make an intention before you initiate anything that you’re enacting change for the highest good of yourself and all involved. This is the best way to keep you choosing the right path for you. I believe in you and your success 🙂

Happy New Moon!

This is your week! Make it an amazing one 🙂
