The week ahead: August 3rd through August 9th:


Venus is back in Leo, who is still retrograde. According to the astrologer Madame Zolonga, during this retrograde time, our values change, our relationships change, and so do we. Don’t be surprised if you hear from an old flame now, or old high school pals that want to reminisce about the good ‘ol days. I’ve received a few panicked messages and requests for readings, asking if an old flame/old friend is ok to let back in. The answer is that it all depends. Is this someone who treated you with respect before? Why did you break up? What good would it do if you did let them back in? How has this person changed from the last go around? These are just a few questions, but important ones to ask. Maybe you don’t want clingy people in your life anymore. Maybe you grew up too and have more confidence in yourself, allowing you to really be a part of a relationship. Or maybe this person needed to come back around so you realize how much you’ve outgrown this kind of relationship. However this plays out for you in the love/friendship department, pay attention to your likes and dislikes. These feeling are your indicators about what’s right for you. Above all, enjoy yourself during this time, especially if the old memories are fun ones! Once Venus goes direct on September 6th, this excitement will chill out and everyone will go back to reality. So ham it up! Have a blast! Make new, happy memories that will sustain you until the next Venus retrograde. If you still have questions about how this retrograde time is affecting you, do yourself a favor and get a reading with Madame Z, or go over to my etsy page and get a reading done with me. Clarity never hurt anyone, and sometimes it’s nice to get an outside perspective. 🙂

Go ahead and pick a card (one, two, or all three if you like!) from the picture above. The stone you see is celestite. Celestite, also known as Celestine, is revered for its high frequency and Divine energies, and is known as a powerful healing crystal. Celestite has been called a “teacher for the New Age”, as it will connect one with the Angelic realms, allowing for the free-flow of these higher frequencies into the Crown and Third-Eye Chakras, and also down into the Throat Chakra for expression.  Bringing mental calm and clarity in the midst of any chaotic circumstance, Celestite can allow one to easily flow through a traumatic period and still come out on top.

My hope for you this week is that you tune into your emotions. See what these emotions are trying to tell you, and respond with the decision that’s for your highest good. If you need help in making a decision, Madame Z or I would be honored to help you. You can even ask a trusted friend or therapist. Whatever you decide, make sure it aligns with the values you have set in your life. Once you have those established, making a good decision will be a million times easier.

This is your week! Make it an amazing one 🙂
