I hope you all have the best week babes! <3
Happy New Moon Lovers!!
I looooove Taurus energy! ♉️ An earth sign ruled by Venus, it is full of grounded abundance! 🌿 Our bodies, nature, self care, money, sensual pleasure, good food, good sex, good rest,... are all Taurean things! 🌸
I created this spread for you to try if you desire! You can randomly pull cards or consciously select each one to build your intentions or to do a little ritual! (A... tarot vision board!) 🌑
I will be doing both, the first to see what energies are at play for me and the second later in a manifesting ritual for what I want to create in my life!!
🌸1 • How can I get grounded and access my strength?
♉️2-3 •What is ripe and abundant in my life? If these are things you want, celebrate and be grateful! If they are things you would like to get rid of (i.e. Fear), be aware and start to move that energy!
🌸4,5,6 • What is fertile and ready to be implanted? (Intentions!!)
♉️ 7• How can I harvest my desires?
🌸8 • How can I treat myself well?
I love you all to the new moon and back!! 💕🌿🌟🌑
Hi my loves!
I was at the gym today, doing a particularly annoying exercise where I had to hold on to something and stay very still. The point of it was to activate the abs and strengthen them through the holding. And I just kept thinking to myself, "I hate this. I would rather be moving and doing an active exercise than just standing here and holding!" But I had to admit to myself that it was working. My abs were on fire! ha ha ha! And in that came the realization that I am not good at inaction. I want to be making progress and making moves all the time. I want to feel productive. I want evidence of my work, and I want it right now! :D
It made me think of our psycho/spiritual/emotional lives. Our goals in other areas, like being abundant in money, having great relationships, healing, changing habits, etc. Don't we always want to be moving forward? We hate sitting still! We hate feeling like we aren't making progress or not seeing evidence of that progress. Or maybe we want something soooo badly, but we cant act on it just yet. Oh the frustration of stillness!!!
Yet, just like that exercise where I looked like a weirdo standing still and not moving, (with abs on fire!!), even if we don't see evidence of the growth or are in a temporary holding pattern, WE ARE STILL GROWING. In fact, this can be one of the times of the biggest growth of all! Sometimes it builds MORE muscle (physical or spiritual) to be patient. To wait. To endure. To grow more subtly in the stillness.
So don't lose heart, dear one!! Every season serves a purpose. Instead of focusing on external action and markers of success, focus inward and work on strengthening your core (metaphorically of course :D)! You are growing through this.
love you to the moon and back

Hello Loves! This weeks tarot forecast (which can be found on my instagram here) talked about the need to let emotions flow without allowing them to overcome us. We all have times of intense emotional energy - fear, anger, pain, etc. In this video I talk about how we can view + navigate those "storms".
How do you deal with difficult emotions? I would love to hear!
Have a beautiful day!
Happy Valentines Day Lovers!!
I am that girl who loves this day because I LOVE LOVE! Single or coupled, I adore any excuse to express my love for the people in my life! It's also a great opportunity to remember self love and to give ourselves a little extra special attention. So in that spirit, here is a list of some self love ideas for today and any other day!
♥ Take a luxurious bath! Light some candles, throw some rose quartz and essential oils in the tub (rose, jasmine, sandalwood would all be great choices) and soak up the loving vibes!
♥ Do a rose quartz/heart chakra meditation. Sit or lay with some relaxing music on in the background and hold rose quartz (or place it on your heart chakra). Let your mind relax, breathe deeply, and see what the crystal has to say to you.
♥ Take yourself on a date! I love doing this! I go to my favorite happy places - either the beach or a bookstore or a crystal shop, and just allow myself to wander and enjoy! Extra points if you buy yourself something ;)
♥ Go on a nature walk!
♥ Set the mood in your house or room and read a book you love while enjoying your favorite tea or wine or coffee!
♥ Write a list of everything you love about yourself and accomplishments you are proud of. Be generous with your self-praise.
♥ Eat your favorite food, guilt free. Enjoy and savor every bite!!
♥ Put on some music and have a dance party! This is sure to get your blood and endorphins flowing!
♥ Do something creative like writing, painting, or collaging.
♥ Take a nap :)
♥ Do a tarot/oracle reading - use positions such as: What are my strengths? How do I shine? How can I love myself more?
What do you like to do for self love?! Please share!! And have a wonderful Love-Filled Day!

Happy Imbolc to my northern hemisphere loves!!
This Sabbat on the wheel of the year is in celebration of the passing of winter and the first signs of spring.
It symbolizes the shift from the crone to the maiden and the birth of the sun. ️
Imbolc honors Brigid, who is the goddess of inspiration, poetry, divination, smithcraft, midwifery, and healing!!
Here's a tarot spread for you to try!
1- what am I leaving behind in winter?
2- what new seeds are starting to sprout?
3- how can I feed the fires of inspiration and new life?
4- spring blessing or intention
Some other ways to celebrate or honor Brigid include:
+lighting a candle and praying (talking to her)
+reading or writing poetry
+Spring cleaning and decluttering
+placing fresh flowers around your home
+doing something that inspires you and thanking her for the gift of inspiration!
May you all have a wonderful Imbolc and coming Spring!
Whether you believe in the chakras as actual physical "things" or not, they can be useful tools to reflect on the different aspects of your psyche, just like Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs or other psychological systems!
The ROOT chakra explores your feelings of security, your early family life, your stability + relationship to survival.
The SACRAL chakra explores your creativity, sexuality, artistic and playful expression, & relationships.
The SOLAR PLEXUS can represent your gut instincts, your will, your external drive and ability to get stuff done + manifested.
The HEART chakra looks at love- self love, love for others, empathy, emotional connection, connection to your souls calling.
The THROAT chakra can look at all areas of expression, how you communicate, how willing you are to be heard, your message to the world, honesty, vulnerability within connection, and to an extent the way we outwardly show everything within us.
The THIRD EYE is all about intuition and inner knowing, communing with people, animals, and spirits on an esoteric level, accessing knowledge and wisdom that is not available in tangible form, and most importantly our inner guidance on our path.
The CROWN chakra can uncover the area of connection to the divine, our higher self, and angels or ascended masters. It is the part of us that allows us to be open to guidance in meditation or dreams. It is the part that is accessed in prayer.
And that is just the tip of the iceberg! Each chakra also correlates to different parts of your physical body and can look at balance or imbalance in those systems.
You can balance and work with your chakras through color, food, scent, essential oils, yoga poses, exercise, meditation, sound, tarot, or simply through reflection and awareness!
So whether you see these as actual energy wheels or concepts or archetypes, they discuss essential parts of our humanity! That's why I find value in exploring them!

So there you have it! I cant wait to see how my relationship with each of these deepens in 2017 and what new treasures will come into my life and practice as well!
Look at all this vibrant fire energy! We are focused on something and ready to take action! We are expanding and preparing to take our unique soul shine out into the world. What projects are you excited about? What adventures do you want to embark on this weekend? All signs point to YES. Be the explorer, have fun, pick a spot on the map and go!
As we take action toward our excitement, our energy emanates on everything around us. We begin to magnetize universal assistance and new possibilities. With each step we take in laser sharp intention, both we and our dreams grow. Have the enthusiasm of a child; don't overthink it, just go!!
Our lives are a series of interconnected events. There is an energetic web that we are a part of, for better or worse, based on our decisions, beliefs, thoughts, heritage, ancestry, and actions. We will continue to repeat cycles until we finally break free and learn to see the patterns. When we become conscious of what is going on beneath the surface, we can then determine, from a place of lucidity and observational detachment, if we want to keep perpetuating this karma. Because karma only continues until consciousness touches it and makes a decision to keep going down this path or forge a new one.
So choose. Use your sword to cut away the strings of attachment that you no longer wish to be tethered to. Break the habits. As you have new thoughts and take new actions, your "web" will evolve, and you will be able to see in black and white the effects of your efforts. This requires a level of transcendence. Step out of the emotional muck for a minute and be logical. Get a higher view. Consciously, with awareness and intention, DISCERN + DECIDE. Today is the day.
Things to Ponder:
- What is showing up in your life and how do you feel about it?
- Where are these things stemming from? (thoughts, beliefs, habits, actions, old wounds)
- How can you start to change these root causes to see a different effect?
Happy New Moon in Sagittarius loves! This energy is perfect for thinking about goals and expansion because that's what Sagg loves to do - explore! Sagittarius season is a time of truth seeking, higher wisdom, exploration, and adventure. It is a fire element sign and it loves to get out there and spread enthusiasm and joie de vivre! It is passionate and bold and unafraid to step outside of boundaries in the name of truth.
I hope you find the weekly energy forecast helpful - and then scroll down to find the spread positions for a new moon reading you can do!
