We’ve got a full moon this week on the 12th in the sign of Gemini. Information is power with this sign and maybe only secondary to Libra, loves to chat, socialize, and gather information. This full moon is going to have you feeling like you want to share the knowledge you’ve gained or philosophy of life (also a bi-product of Sagittarius season). Full moon’s are known to bring things to a culmination with a big dash of emotional umm… we’ll say passion, so even though Sagittarius and Gemini aren’t known for being emotionally forward, this full moon might bring out the feels in even the airiest of air signs.
I for one am pulling for big information that’s emotionally satisfying to come through, maybe even something that changes my philosophy or outlook on life, cause I don’t know about you guys, but 2019 shook quite a few foundations for me (in both really good and really bad ways), and I could use a little boost in faith.
Or maybe that’s what this full moon might be about; our faith and the data we need or find to support it, or put it in something bigger and better that’s more tailored to who we are now.
Whatever you find, whatever information you give and share, and whatever emotions come up for you, please trust it’s leading you on to the next chapter that requires bigger philosophies and bigger convictions gained from a life lived from being open to the new knowledge presented to you, just when you need it.
So how can we work with the energy of this week? My advice is this: On the night before or right before the moon goes full, get a couple of bay leaves and write out first what you’re letting go of and burn those mothers while stating this is what you’re cutting cords of attachment to. Then, get just as many more bay leaves and write out what you’re now bringing in to replace what you’ve let go, burn them while stating it so. Extra points for asking with the themes of this full moon.
Go ahead and pick a card from above (pick one, two, or all three cards–choose what you’re drawn to). The top card is the overarching theme for everyone and it’s something to keep in mind or to remember, no matter what energy shows up for you as the week goes on. The stone you see in the picture above is green fluorite. Draw on Green Fluorite to clear negative energy from a room or work space, and to absorb pollution from the environment. Place in an area where children play to minimize conflict, and place in the pocket of children who travel fume-filled streets to school or play in urban areas. Keep a Green Fluorite crystal in the garden to attract butterflies. Use Fluorite to clear mental fog, confusion or conflicting ideas, or to quiet worried thoughts and anxiety. It is ideal for overcoming any form of disorganization, and is perfect for increasing thought and concentration. An excellent study and learning tool, Fluorite helps absorb new information, and improves memorization and retention. Used regularly, it nurtures the intelligence and is even believed to raise the I.Q. Fluorite clusters are particularly conducive to working with modern technologies. Their frequency harmonizes with computers and electronics, and draws off environmental stress and negative energies from electromagnetic fields. Their presence in work areas, labs or places of study helps the mind stay focused, organized and clear. They are remarkable talismans for analysts, accountants, scientists, engineers, researchers, processors, programmers or designers. They benefit anyone who works under pressure or lives life at a fast pace to keep the mind calm and productive. Fluorite gives form and structure to energies, ideas and concepts, stirs creativity and opens the mind to new possibilities. As “dream crystals,” Fluorite protects the mind and is marvelous for freeing the spirit at night to explore, travel and expand without fear or disturbance. Place one under the pillow to heal to heal night terrors and sleep paralysis, and to prevent unwanted out of body trips. Fluorite angels, spheres and eggs provide soft energy and breaks down barriers between our world and angelic realms. Fluorite is an excellent “focus stone” for maintaining discipline in a health or fitness plan by incorporating structure into daily life and garnering strength and endurance for physical activities, such as Pilates, yoga, running, or muscle training. It also assists in balance and coordination. If you’d like to learn more about this stone, please go here.
Overarching theme: Seven of Cups:Your card goes on to say that the Seven of Cups is a card of choices and temptations, that may come at a time when you feel overwhelmed with options or bouts of the imagination. This card may also point to illusory notions of what we can and cannot do, feeding an unstable disconnect from reality; a dreamy sort of mindset the pushes us to indulge in certain things that aren’t necessarily healthy or productive in the long-term. In the end, we may be faced with consequences of our short-lived spurts of irresponsibility and grand illusions. The underlying key of this card shows us that the twisty path of our choices may be faced with fears, illusions, and imaginary scenarios, but in the end, our heart must inform our higher calling. This is the difference between forging pathways in your mind or truly deciding to pave your way forward in the real world. Which option feels best for you in the long run? Questions to ask yourself right now: What small steps can I take towards my true goals? How am I putting off the inevitable dreams I wait for? Your mantra: I visualize my choices and see where they take me. I feel out my options with my mind, body, and spirit. Additional Meanings: Temptation • Choices • Disillusionment • Daydreaming.
If you chose card #1: Your message this week is about the Knight of Wands. Your card goes on to say that the Knight of Wands embodies a knack for adventure that goes beyond logic and convention. This is the type of spark that surges within you when you have nothing to lose, with no fear, no doubt, and an optimized sense of freedom. This confidence leads this person forward with no thought of potential consequences along the way, because hey, what could possibly go wrong when you have raw inspiration driving you? The Knight of Wands is one of the most visionary people in the Tarot, as they seem to exist outside of the space of their body, living in liminal doorways that lead them anywhere they could ever possibly imagine. This is a powerful frequency to align with, and of course, it has its risks when proper planning or foresight is not taken into consideration, but with all of the leaps and bounds, this dreamer has the power to move mountains, paradigms, and build entirely new worlds and inventions. Questions to ask yourself right now: Am I ready to embark on a quest of my own making? How can I plan ahead and make a concrete plan? Your mantra: I walk through every guiding doorway. I break free from all limitations. Additional Meanings: Restless • Quest • Impatient • Daring • Adventure.
If you chose card #2: Your message this week is about the Four of Cups. Your card goes on to say that as our own reflection fades into shadowed obscurity, it can be difficult to see the world around us as a place of support. This card speaks of the tormented emotional states that can often impair our grasp on reality. When depression, self-pity or sadness sink in, and we retreat into our own world, our sensations and feelings can be overpowering and illusory. We may feel lost, hopeless, or even complacent, which may be an indication that we should consider our emotions head on, and examine the roots of our anguish. If you’re fearful or indifferent about making a change, you may continue to dwell in a perpetual state of limbo. This card may also suggest there’s something you are overlooking; perhaps a solution is closer than you think. You have a system of love support in your life: how can you connect with this? It may be time to shift your perspective beyond this clouded veil. Questions to ask yourself right now: How can I work with a depth of my shadow? How can I break out of any stagnant patterns? Your mantra: I seek to shift the illusions. I retreat into peace instead of apathy. Additional Meanings: Reorientation • Doubt • Introspection • Stress.• Apathy.
If you chose card #3: Your message this week is about the Five of Cups. Your card goes on to say that the Five of Cups reflects the deep transitions of change that emerge through uncertainty or loss, when something destabilizes your life or an inner survival mode kicks in. This pushes you to lengths you never fathomed possible, and may come as a result of unfulfilled expectations. Perhaps the course of your path has not turned out the way you envisioned. This disillusionment may also be caused by an inability to learn or move on from past mistakes that keep repeating in your life. Perhaps there is a deeper need for some kind of inner or outer forgiveness at this time, as you take stock of the choices you have made, with honest love and great compassion. A period of reorientation, release, and gentle healing. Questions to ask yourself right now: Is there another solution or option being presented? How can I reflect on the steps of my journey so far? Your mantra: I surrender to the Universe and my own learning. I release what no longer serves me. Additional Meanings: Obsession • Self-pity • Forgiveness • Adjustment • Choices.
This is your week! Make it an amazing one 😊
