The week ahead: August 28th through September 3rd:


Health and healing are going to be some major themes this week! We’re officially now in Virgo season, so get prepped to get clean, organized and make practical, grounded, logical decisions (earth sign). Virgo’s are the zodiacs healers (they own the 6th house in astrology; the house of health), making us focus on our health, and they’re also known for color coding and categorizing the crap out of anything that comes across their desk, or yours, if you let them. I know WAY too many Virgo’s who should drop what they’re doing and just become (insert anything that needs it) organizers for others, or at the very minimum, someones assistant that can’t seem to get their life together. That hot mess express person is like crack to my Virgo lovelies, and they find more often than not that they seem to get into relationships (both romantic and friendship) with people that avoid discipline or structure like the plague. Virgo’s always end up being the adult in the situation, but I kinda think they like it that way; low key control issues might be to blame, but is it really their fault if they know the best way to do something? 🙂 I gotta say though, these guys are all about service and it’s so nice to meet a sign that loves to take care of you (Cancer is the other world’s mother). These guys are ruled by Mercury (so is Gemini), the planet of communication and travel, so their brains are going a million miles a minute, with a million tabs open, and all this brainpower only helps them to get EVERYTHING done. You should be in awe of them–we should all be, but good luck trying to compliment them; they’ll probably smile at you and then shrug it off and move on to the next thing on their to-do list, so don’t be offended. Honestly, the best thing you can do for a Virgo is to tell them you need their help,  and then (AND THIS IS IMPORTANT), follow their advice or just allow them to help you. I think I just heard a gang of Virgo’s collectively cheer and put down their riot gear, so do your Virgo person a solid this week and help them to help you.

It’s still Mercury Retrograde time too, and if you remember, it’s in the sign of Virgo as well until the 5th of September. Now is the perfect space if you’re having a rough time working through some emotional, physical, or metal pain, and go into the past and see where the root of the issue is. Rip that crap out of the ground and replant, rework, redo, revision, or restructure something that better suits your needs now. It’s also a great time to go through your closets, pantry, or fridge and clean out, remove, trash, or gift away anything that you don’t need. Decluttering is going to be a story that will keep coming up for you, so don’t be afraid to let go of what no longer serves you and your highest good. It’s the only way to make room for the new adventures and things coming your way after the eclipse season put some major life transitions into play.

So how can we use the energy of this week to help us? My advice is this: How’s your health lately? What can you do to get in better shape, mentally, emotionally and/or physically? How’s your schedule look? What can you do to plan your day in a better way that allows you to have time for yourself, too? What’s up with that place you keep all your shit in (mental, emotional, or physical)? What can you do to declutter, remove, uproot, gift away, wash out, or straight chuck in the garbage can what’s taking up precious space in your life? This week, get your shit together and ask your Virgo person for some help. You’ll both be a lot happier if you do <3

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 gold sheen obsidian. A black or deep brown Obsidian displaying a golden chatoyance when viewed in strong light, created from gas bubbles aligning across the layers during formation. Gold Sheen Obsidian is an excellent tool for gazing, to view the future or access knowledge from the past, but more importantly to reveal the heart of a problem or situation in the present. While Gold Sheen reflects that which is needed in one’s life for healing, it does not provide the healing. It does, however, give insight into the paths of action available to bring it about. Gold Sheen Obsidian dissolves negativity and purifies the aura, and is particularly useful for clearing blockages of the Solar Plexus Chakra, the seat of the Will. It is highly effective for exposing and releasing ego conflicts and power abuse, and dispelling any sense of futility or cynicism. Gold Sheen Obsidian allows one to commune with the Source of all being, and to realign one’s personal power with the Divine to better direct one’s life. It is useful for bringing out hidden talents and to manifest one’s true calling. It is a favorite with Reiki workers and those advanced in the shamanic and healing arts. As Gold Sheen gets to the root of any problem, it can be worn or carried for all diagnostics work, from medical or psychological, to finding faults in machinery or circuits. It is particularly strong for Earth-healing, and can be used to locate areas of disturbance in the Earth’s energy systems. If you’d like to lean more about this stone, please go here.


If you chose card #1: Your message this week is about the Six of Wands. Your card goes on to say the arrival of positive news! You are victorious and should be proud of your brilliant accomplishments. Your enthusiasm has paid off three fold, as you realize your limitless potential. There is nothing you cannot achieve, and others also recognize this. Creativity comes through connecting with your higher Self–you have learned to harness this, and are an inspiration to those around you! This card represents a harmonious state that comes from finding a healthy and comfortable balance in all areas of your life (mind, body, and spirit). Additional Meanings: Great news • Diplomacy • Conquests • Good fortune • Cooperation • Popularity • Success.

If you chose card #2: Your message this week is about the Ace of Crystals. Your card goes on to say that the Ace of Crystals signifies a new and prosperous beginning. It is the fruition of wealth and abundance, and the attainment of your dreams. You are capable of manifesting your goals into reality, and also appreciate the payoff of your success. From this state if understanding, comes the ability to identify opportunities as they arise, and those routes that align best with your spirituality. This speaks of your innate trust in your heart and Higher Self. Remember, the power of positive visualization combined with a sense of gratitude will only attract more abundance into your life. Additional Meanings: Prosperity • Stability • Possessions • Opportunities • New ventures • Fertility.

If you chose card #3: Your message this week is about The Sun. Your card goes on to say that when the Sun shows up in a reading, it is time to acknowledge your wonderful blessings. It is an expensive, love filled radiance that indicates a joyous time in your life. Along with a renewed sense of abundance, you have reached a higher state of consciousness–this elevates  your own spiritual vibration and connects you with the divine source of all. The sun indicates an overall positive approach in how you choose to live your life and interact with the people around you. You are succeeding in new and vibrant ways, and are able to pour all of your enthusiasm and vitality into your dreams. When you resonate this way, it is only natural that more light will shine down upon you and the ones you love. Bask in this healing and transformational energy–it has guided you this far. Questions to ask yourself right now: How can I maintain this positive mindset and approach to life? Am I ready to receive the payoff for all that I have worked for? Am I ready to see the light in myself, and others? Additional Meanings: Happy relationships • Warmth • Pleasure • Sincerity • Good health • Joy • Accomplishment • Success • Abundance • Celebrating your inner child.

 My hope for you this week is that you take the time to go deep and uproot what’s toxic. Just let that shit go, my friends. I’m in the same boat as you, so know that you’re not alone in any of this. If you need extra support, make sure to reach out, and at the very least, do something for yourself so that you feel loved <3

This is your week! Make it an amazing one 🙂
