The week ahead: April 27th through May 3rd:

Hey lovelies! Let’s chat today about this Uranus/Pluto square that’s now releasing it’s titan grip on each other up in the heavens. For the past 3 years, Uranus and Pluto have been squaring each other in the eye, working in cahoots, and making us feel that EVERYTHING needs to change RIGHT NOW. Uranus is known as the great awakener, and it demands that the truth be seen, heard, and understood at any cost, no matter how crazy or shocking. Pluto rules the shadow part of ourselves that we rarely (if ever) take a look at or confront. When two planets square each other, we literally feel forced to take action. A fire has been lit and it’s right under your butt! 😉 True progress and deep transformation are the end games of Uranus and Pluto here, but really, these two planets just wanted you to be confronted with the consequences of being someone you’re not, refusing to stake a claim on your life, or living small and safe when it’s your right and obligation to live large. So for those that just wait out the storm and “endure”, you’re in luck because this square is now dissolving in the heavens as the two planets move away from each other. Life should go back to “normal”, and if you’ve refused to participate in the last 3 years, your life will go back to being the same as it ever was; except for everyone else around you. For those of us that participated in this transformational time (this could have started 3 years ago or last week for you), take a look back and try to recognize the person you were then. I bet $50 you don’t even know who that is anymore. For all the stress and pain (emotional, physical, mental) that these two planets have brought us, they also brought a beautiful unfolding of our story. Strength and courage are now our allies, where once one could never dream of being such things. Options we didn’t even know we had are now open game, and the real possibility of a beautiful life seems more tangible than ever. Trauma and tragedy may have claimed the beginning of this transformation, but now new life and new beginnings will be the next evolution. I know it’s hard to go through times like this, but the experience and effort is worth it. Waking up is never easy (in the morning or in life–that’s why there’s coffee for both), but being fully present and tuned into your choices everyday is the freedom and reward you receive when taking responsibility for your life; you are the one in control. Stand tall in your power and give yourself a pat on the back today. You made it through this square and it’s given you the ability to go farther and higher in your life. You definitely came out on top. Tally-ho!

Go ahead and pick a card from above (you can pick one or them all). The stone you see in the picture is agate. Agate is a stone of strength. It was used by the Ancients on the breastplates of armor to give warriors strength and make them victorious in battle. Energetically, it is considered to give strength in both battle and physically. Agate enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. It is also known as a good luck stone. As a stone of harmony, one of the things agate does is balance yin/yang energy. Agate increases energy. However, because it is a grounding stone, it does not increase energy at all times, but rather enables bursts of energy as needed. In this way, agate is a conservation stone,  and enhances longevity.

If you chose card #1: Your message this week is to make time for those around you. Take a sensible approach. Deal with challenges in a kind and understanding manner. Your card goes on to say that if this is about a situation: Remember to enjoy time with other people. You have much to give, whether to family, friends, or those less fortunate. Handle any challenges with understanding and warmth, but also with confidence and resourcefulness. If this is about a person: Someone who cares about others and is quick to lend a hand. A person who is warm, creative, intelligent, and able to efficiently solve problems. Unselfish. Family oriented. Sensible. Excellent with money. Down to earth, yet enjoys beautiful things.

 If you chose card #2: Your message this week is to look at things from a different perspective. A temporary standstill. It’s important to be yourself! Your card goes on to say that it’s time to review your plans, according to this card, and look at things from a new perspective. Ask yourself: is it possible that a different approach would work better? Although it may feel like events have come to a standstill, this is temporary. So, make use of the extra time you’ve been given to rethink your strategies. You may need to step outside of the norm and the mainstream right now and embrace your unique and eclectic beliefs or attitudes. It’s also a good moment to be generous with your time, attention, and gifts. This “tithing” is returned by the Universe manyfold to you! Additional Meanings: Epiphanies • Selflessness • Unexpected life changes • The need for patience • The power that lies in being oneself • Unusual solutions.

If you chose card #3: Your message this week is Victory! Good news is on its way. Public recognition or awards. Your card goes on to say that, bravo! This is a time of great achievement and success. People think highly of you, and your reputation is excellent. You’ve made good decisions and worked hard. There may be some sort of public acknowledgment of your contributions, or you may be given an award for your achievements. Good news is on its way. It could be a promotion or a new job offer. Additional Meanings: Victory! • Feeling good about yourself • Good fortune.

My hope for you this week is that you strive for authenticity in your life. Whether it’s to be authentically you or do authentic work, being who you are is central to this. Fly your weird flag high and bedazzle it with glitter, my lovelies. This is your life. LIVE IT.

This is your week! Make it an amazing one 🙂
