04 Aug The week ahead: August 3rd to August 9th of 2020:
We have a full moon tonight in the sign of Aquarius–get ready for shit to get weird 😂
I’m kidding, but not really; ruled by the planet Uranus, Aquarius is known for sudden insights out of thin air, unexpected changes of course, being authentically themselves, and genius that teeters on bonkers. Most importantly, these guys give all the fucks for their communities and the world at large, especially if there are concerns around human, environmental (especially water) or animal rights. Being an air sign, boring them is tantamount to torture, so you may be feeling like you’re ready to be your with friend group or community, longing for mental stimulation. Being quarantined has been hard on all of us for a multitude of reasons, but this week, you may feel like you’re ready to break free and be with your people, come what may.
Just pull on that innovative Aquarian energy and use technology to make that happen so no one has to potentially get hurt– masks count as technology, so please use one if you’re going out into public and especially if you’re joining in on any of the BLM marches. I have a feeling that during and after the full moon, the numbers at the marches are only going to get bigger and more beautiful. Even though Aquarius is an air sign and not particularly known for being emotional, with a full moon, these themes (and our emotions) will be tugging at our heart strings, begging us to do something, or be in involved in some way to help the greater masses, and hopefully too, bring us together in a way that solidifies us rather than being further divided.
Allow inspiration to guide you right now and pay attention to any repeating messages you receive. If you’re not sure which way to go, tap into your inner child (Leo season) and ask your 10 years old self what they would do. Something tells me your inner child is actually an inner badass and is asking you to take a stand and let your weird flag fly. Whatever happens, be true to yourself, connect with your community, and stay weird 💖
So how do we work with the energy of this week? My advice is this: Cleanse yourself in water, do your psychic work with water, do your spell work with water, and drink more water! I now Aquarius is an air sign, but they’re also the water bearers, so working with water corresponds with them, and it being the full moon, I highly recommend you put out a bowl of water tonight to soak up all the beautiful Aquarian energy and use it to water your plants, do any magickal work, and to drink.
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 sunstone. Sunstone is an abundance stone. It encourages independence and originality, is inspirational in revealing talents, and attracts fame and unexpected prosperity. It is an excellent “good luck” crystal for competitions. Wear Sunstone to feel alive and enthusiastic. It increases vitality and is beneficial in starting, and maintaining, a fitness program or aerobic activity, and for occupations requiring high energy throughout the day. As a workplace crystal, Sunstone increases your profile and brings opportunities for leadership and promotion. Place next to your computer when advertising your own business or services online. Sunstone provides a source of strength if you are dependent on others emotionally, or have suffered the sudden loss of a partner. It helps alleviate fearfulness and stress, and protects against those who drain your energies or finances. It is also an excellent crystal for phobia sufferers to ease fear of the dark, enclosed places, or the presence of other triggers. Worn as a ring on the receptive hand, Sunstone helps one receive what is needed and desired. On the transmitting hand, it channels multiple healings and blessings to others. Worn as a pendant, Sunstone brings the heart’s wisdom into alignment with the mind’s inspirations. If you’d like to learn more about this stone, please go here.
Overarching theme: The Empress: When the empress shines through, don’t be surprised if new sparks of inspiration begin to stir within your heart. This is a soulful awakening that cultivates fresh projects, adventures, or spiritual insights. It may also point to birthing energies, evoking a vital resonance with the natural rhythms and cycles of creation. Ruled by Venus, The Empress embodies a potent symbol of sensuality and divine feminine love, encouraging us to reconnect with that sacred part of ourselves. How can you nurture this gentle gift and celebrate its wisdom? When we tap into her loving guidance, we become more in-tune with our mind, body, and spirit, which speaks to the very root of this harmonious key. She is a life force. The Mother. The Universal spark. Questions to ask yourself this week: What am I now cultivating in my life? How can I reconnect with my mind, body, and spirit? Additional Meanings: Goddess • Nature • Divine feminine • Abundance.
