The week ahead: March 20th through March 26th:

Happy Spring Equinox to those in the Northern Hemisphere and Happy Autumn Equinox to those in the Southern! Today marks the day in the Northern Hemisphere as the first day of spring and also serves as the new year on the astrological calendar. Today is a celebration of fertility, longer days, new ideas and new beginnings. There’s a perfect balance of light and dark as the day and night are equally as long. Now would be the perfect time to both symbolically and actually integrate all sides of yourself—both light and shadow—into the powerfully whole person you are. I feel like acceptance will be a huge theme coming up for all of us right now, so pay attention to those things in your life that you’re not accepting of and ask yourself why.

We’re also in Aries season too (yay!). Aries are known as the leaders (besides Leo), innovators, and adventurers of the zodiac. Ruled by the planet Mars, these guys are fiery and intense go-getters and they will never take no for answer; obstacles only makes them work harder. Being the first born of the zodiac gives them a fresh, child like perspective on the world that some might even call naive. Aries don’t care though and it’s this very thing that gives them the hope and excitement to go places other fear to tread. These guys are also known for a being a bit selfish, so watch out this week for making it all about you, or forgetting the people most important in your life by getting stuck in your own story.

So how can we us the energy of this week to help us? My advice is this: Where can you take courageous action in your life? How can you “give birth” to a new you or creation/project that you’ve been working on? How can you balance both the light and the shadow of yourself so you accept all that you are? This time of year always feels special to me: it heralds my birthday coming up (April 19th! Whoop!), Spring is in the air and the flowers and bunnies are EVERYWHERE, and it feels like the world is coming alive again. I’m thinking about drawing a bath tonight and filling up the tub with Epsom salts, magnesium salts, pink Himalayan salt, and some of my ritual salts from a batch of Florida Water I made (can you tell I’m obsessed with salt?). I’m going to drop in my favorite stones and essential oils I work with and I’m going to bless the water, giving myself permission to give birth to the greatest evolution of me yet. I’ll hop in for my 30 minutes and I’m going to play music that soothes me while I contemplate what my next moves are for everything I’m trying to accomplish. When I’m done, I’ll pamper myself with some Argan oil and remind myself that I’m here on a sacred mission to love. This will become my new birth story for this year. I want to do something that symbolically feels like giving birth (water felt the most natural to me) and if you’re looking for the same and a bath sounds like the worst, consider going for a run, digging in the earth and planting flowers or herbs, painting, singing a song and dancing, writing what you’d like to give birth to this year, or just starting on whatever you’ve put off. Whatever you decide to do, this week, take courageous action in your life. You have a perfect time to be bold, so use this Aries energy and don’t take no for an answer ❤

Go ahead and pick a card from above (pick one, two, or all three cards–pick what you’re drawn to). The stone you see in the picture above is white adventurine. The sparkling mica inclusions within white aventurine are said to mirror the soul. By virtue of its reflective traits, one can see and know the truth of each person they meet, and can love them with integrity just the same. It provides clarity; it enables you to understand the meaning of dreams and visions, and it enables you to define issues within you and intelligently resolve them. As well, it helps you to make your point known, and to understand more fully and clearly what others are saying to you. White aventurine helps you to connect with the divine feminine, alleviates insomnia, enhances fertility, and emanates energies of peace. It guides us to make choices that are morally apt, encourages sincerity; and as it draws such positive energies, it is effective to use as protection – especially during spiritual journeys. This stone also tempers one with humility, eliminates phobias and fears, and allows one to see each opportunity as being full of potential.
