The week ahead: May 7th through May 13th of 2018:


This Taurus season has been a spicy one, my lovelies. Earth signs know how to amp up the sensuality, and being ruled by Venus makes them the earth goddess and gods of the zodiac. Venus also rules money, so Taurus’ make great bankers and financial advisers; earth signs are practical, grounded, and realistic about everything, especially when it comes to their investments. These guys need something tangible to touch to know that their hard work is paying off, and you can always count on a Taurus to be real with you. Especially if it comes to food (their fav subject), or anything relating to beauty and/or beautifying a space or person.

I want to remind you guys of the themes we felt at the full moon we just had, too–developments in the love and money category should continue to unfold right now, until we make it to the new moon next week on the 15th/16th. How’s that going for you? Completely frustrating and confusing? Well, welcome to the thunderdome, and it’s up to you to get real about your feelings on either subjects. There’s something you’ve been hiding from and it’s time to face it. Full moons in Scorpio are intense to say the least, but they also bring secrets to the surface, so come to terms with what comes up for you and don’t allow shame, guilt, fear, or old paradigms to keep you trapped. Full moons are when things come to culmination, so as you’re closing doors on some things and feeling like all hope might be lost (or possibly found again), please let me assure you with the new moon coming up next week, new horizons will meet you, but you gotta be honest and face your shiz, first.

So how can we use the energy of this week to help us? What have you been avoiding or refusing to see in relation to a love/money issue? Can you see how coming to terms, unashamed, can actually set you free? Been thinking about changing your look? Consider approaching your upgraded style with the new found sensuality you’ve been feeling, by adding in pieces that celebrate your inner goddess or god. Been thinking about changing your diet? If so, bonus points for adding in more veggies and organic items, like the rockstar you are. This week, be real with yourself. It’s your turn for a reality check, so don’t shy away <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 obsidian. *WARNING* If you work with this stone, expect ALL your shit to come to the surface, so use the stone sparingly, or only use if you’re ok with everything coming up for you.* Obsidian is a pure, glossy black that may appear deep brown when light is shined on thin edges. Ruled by the planet Pluto, Black Obsidian is a teacher stone and could be deemed the “Warrior of Truth.” It is the most powerful of the Obsidians and does not cater to the ego; rather it exposes darkened areas of the subconscious to force one to face one’s true self. It assists in examining unresolved issues and harmful attitudes inhibiting one’s personal and spiritual growth. Black Obsidian works quickly and can be overwhelming as it rushes negative emotions and difficult truths to the surface to be experienced and released. It should only be used if one is educated on its power and prepared to withstand the process in order to achieve deep healing. It is best used under the guidance of a qualified therapist or healer, and other, gentler forms of Obsidian may be used for this process. Black Obsidian also carries the inherent frequency of protection, sealing the aura and removing energetic attachments, hooks and cords, as well as eliminating negative energies within the self and one’s environment. This protective shield enables one to go back into past lives for healing and to work on ancestral and family lines. It is ideal for use in shamanic ceremonies to remove physical disorders. Black Obsidian slabs, mirrors and spheres are excellent gazing and scrying tools for meditation, divining insight into the future, inducing creativity, and communicating with souls who have passed over. It is an excellent talisman for self-control, reversing previous misuse of power, and addressing power issues on all levels. If you’d like to learn more about this stone, please go here. 


If you chose card #1: Your message this week is about Persistence and New Possibilities.  Your card goes on to say that a guardian of wishes fulfilled, Ladybug delivers luck and protection. She’s savvy in illuminating the spirit during times of stress and worry. Laced with the energies of renewal, Ladybug is your guide in designing a path for new found happiness. Realign yourself with what you need in order to move upward and onward, and new opportunities will present themselves. Take time to review what you want in life, and believed that you can achieve it. Additional Meanings: Persistence during challenging times • Finding strength • New opportunities• A turning point.

If you chose card #2: Your message this week is about Perception and Truth. Your card goes on to say that with a sharp perception, Bat’s keen radar cuts through that which is hidden. A mistress of the naked truth, she doesn’t stand for being fooled. She’s gained spiritual depths through struggles, and is objective and rational in her approach. Dashing wherever she needs to go, she isn’t afraid of the darkness. A bringer of new perspectives, Bat will offer constructive criticism for any situation. She’s experienced at applying logical ideas to work out a sensible and fair solution. Bat will assist you in facing your fears when you need to stand up for what you believe in. Confront the darkness and you’ll discover the reawakening of light. Heighten the force of clarity and truth by seeing through illusions, and maintain a balanced mind. Additional Meanings: Sharp perception • Truth • Integrity • Realistic • Self discipline • Direct • Clarity of thought • Freedom.

If you chose card #3: Your message this week is about Release and Revelation. Your card goes on to say that Chameleon is the shaman of adaptation. Seizing the power of cloaking, he changes color to blend with his shifting surroundings. Life is change, and you have the choice to either accept change or to resist it. By clinging to ideas that no longer work within the structure of your spiritual evolution, the winds of revelation will force you to go with the flow. Chameleon is here to help you shift the colors of your state of being, setting you on the path to your highest truths. Relax, place trust in yourself, and release fear. By attuning yourself to the magic of Chameleon, you become more receptive to the powers around you. Additional Meanings: Change • Sudden shift • Release • Upheaval • Revelation • Divine intervention • Liberation.

My hope for you this week is that you trust that you can handle what you’re going through. So many times, we can be on the break of something big for us, but fear can hold us back and keep us small and stop us from going bigger and better. Don’t allow that to happen for you. Stay vulnerable, and stay true. THIS is where your power lies right now, so utilize it.

This is your week! Make it an amazing one 🙂
