The week ahead: April 30th through May 6th:


MOTHER OF GOD. That full moon yesterday was a tidal wave of emotions, including the good ones. Overwhelming was a good word to describe that energy, but I also want to continue the theme from last week about going to excess, as well. What came up for you last week? Was it your addictions or obsessions? Did you get a clearer look into what motivates you? How about that appetite of yours? What’s it for and does it get more intense when you ignore it? All of this could have been coming up for you, coupled with the background feeling of wanting to get grounded and realistic about your situation, thanks to the addition of Taurus season.

Which we’re balls deep in, as we speak. Taurus season has always been one of my favs: a time where expressing yourself creatively, updating your fashion and self care routine, good soul food, and surrounding yourself with beauty (they are ruled by Venus), is everywhere I want to be. This is an Aries with a love of the finer things in life (my Mars is in Taurus) and who LOVES to eat, so sign me up for everything Taurus brings. And these guys bring the extra, especially when it comes to extravagance with their belongings. What’s so interesting about them is that they’re an earth sign, representing practical, grounded, logical thought and action. So on one end, these guys love entertaining in their homes with lavish parties and meals with ALL the trappings, but rest assured they’ve worked very hard for and squirreled away the money to be able to do this. Their wealth and power will show in their homes, furnishings, bank account(s)/savings, their clothes, and in the extra stuff that makes them feel loved and pampered. Only downside (if it gets taken too far) is going overboard in food, drink, partying, or anything that they enjoy. Watch out this week of going overboard yourself, and ground yourself in reality again by going for a walk in the woods, cooking a good meal, or doing something that makes you feel Venus just jumped off her clam shell and spoiled you.

So how can we use the energy of this week to help us? My advice is this: Where are you going to excess, and how can you find a more healthy, grounded, sustainable way to deal with the emotional gap? Have you been getting in touch with your needs? If so, look for practical, grounded, logical ways to take care of them. If not, it’s time to look at where you’re going to excess to understand where your needs are calling to you for help and revision. Where in your life can you benefit from adding more security? 10 points to Gryfindor for adding in a safeguard where your money flow is concerned. This week, safeguard your security. If you’re clear on your needs, you know exactly where to shore up your self-love <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 card is black kyanite. Black Kyanite aids in the manifestation of vision and clairvoyance. Full of healing energy, Black Kyanite is a favorite among energy healers, and is especially helpful in body layouts. Black Kyanite can be placed on any chakra to send healing energy to any tears or holes in the chakras and the aura. Its fan shape can help to sweep away any unwanted energies. Black Kyanite can also help to open the lines of communication between people. Keeping a piece with you can help out in situations of conflict or misunderstanding. Use Black Kyanite for grounding during a chakra alignment or meditation. Black Kyanite works with all Chakras, focusing most on the Root Chakra. Many crystal healers like it because it can be grounding and energizing at the same time. Black Kyanite is an excellent meditation tool. Meditating with Black Kyanite can help one to come up with important insights resulting from exploration of the subconscious mind. Often used to explore past-lives, Black Kyanite can also help one to anticipate how current actions affect future lives. In general, Kyanite transmits and amplifies high-frequency energies, making it a great stone for attunements and meditation. Kyanite brings a calming, tranquilizing energy to the body. Kyanite clears and calms you in preparation for meditation, and assists in receiving intuitive and psychic thoughts, as well as dream recall. Kyanite restores Qi (or Ki) to the physical body, and balances yin/yang energies. If you’d like to learn more about this stone, please go here.
