transits

Great time to declutter your mind

Okay so we’ve got this gorgeous square between retrograde Mercury and Uranus, sun and Pluto are conjunct … I want to share something I do periodically, especially during transits really invite us to make decisions and mentally cleaning house.

Close your eyes, take 3 slow deep breaths, then make a list on paper (not electronically) of all the projects, ideas to explore, stuff you’ve been meaning to do, stuff you should do etc.

Include everything.

Learn a new language, clean out the frig, read more to your kids, have that difficult talk with your neighbor, eat healthier, exercise, clean out your desk, clean out the pics on your phone, paint the bathroom …

List ALL of it. All the stuff running through your head that you need to be doing.

Once you’ve gotten it all down, do 3 more slow deep breaths and review the list.

First, circle anything that supports your well being. We’ll come back to those at the end.

Next, cross off everything you don’t really want to do, stuff you feel obligated or pressured to do. You can revisit each later if you ever want to do so, but for now you don’t want to it so cross it off. These things get no more of your daily mental energy.

Next, cross off things you do want to do, but now is not the time. If it isn’t something you have actual plans to start or do in the next few weeks, cross it off. Doing so doesn’t mean you will never do it, now is not the time. These things get no more of your daily mental energy.

Look at everything that isn’t circled or crossed off and ask yourself how important each is to you right now. Today. Does it soothe your soul, bring you joy or exquisite pleasure, energize you, amplify love in your life? If so, circle it. If not, cross it off.

Now look at the circled items. If the list of circled items feels overwhelming, cross some more off. This isn’t a list for your whole life, this is a list for your life now and you can only do so much now.

Once you have it narrowed down to a few things, do three more slow deep breaths and consciously choose to do them, then cross them off as well, because they are now part of your daily life and no longer require you to contemplate doing them.

You may not eat perfectly healthy every day, but you’ve decided to make it part of your daily life. So do it and if you have an off day, eat better the next snd move on. Maybe you don’t read to your kids every night, but do your best and when you miss a night, get back to it.

The point here is to stop thinking about all these things you believe could improve your life and just start doing some of them that fit your life now.

It’s incredible how freeing, light, productive and energized we become when we clear the mental to do list we’ve got running in the background on a loop.

Let me know if you do it.

November 2021 New Moon

This new moon is happening on November 4th at 5:14pm ET at 12 degrees of Scorpio. I love that’s it at 12 degrees, because 12 is such a magical number. Perfect for a Scorpio new moon. Twelve is the one of self combined with the two of relationship that adds to a three, the number of creative self-expression, communication, and divine time where past, present and future exist together.

As if the 12 magic wasn’t enough for the new moon, it exactly opposes Uranus at 12 degrees of Taurus and Uranus always brings sparkle and surprise.

Looking at the whole of it, I feel like this new moon offers an opportunity to demonstrate a deeper level of self acceptance by doing something that you have been too scared to do.

Surprise yourself! Look inside, look at the scary stories your mind tells you about yourself and choose to trust yourself. Choose to move through the fear and into deeper self-acceptance, then DO SOMETHING. It can be a little thing or big thing, just something that you have been telling yourself that you are not _________ enough to do it.

Maybe you’ve been telling yourself that you’re not smart enough, pretty enough, loved enough … whatever it is, believe that you are already enough.

It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been scared, or how many times you could have already made this shift, what matters is that you can make it now. You can trust yourself now. You can accept yourself more deeply now.

Wield some of that mystical magical Scorpio energy for yourself and let the scary self-talk fade.

Have a beautiful new moon away

Getting started offering metaphysical services

Do you offer a metaphysical product or service? Have you been thinking about it? Tell me, I’d love to know.

Making the switch to charging a fee for metaphysical services is exciting! Whether it’s astrology, numerology, Reiki, tarot … here’s some advice and a lesson learned from me.

Naica Selenite

First do it for free

If you’ve never actually done a reading or session, you’re not ready to charge a fee. Get some experience first. You learn by doing. It’s part of any reputable training.

Then make the jump. Do it.

Once you’re consistently getting great feedback, make the switch. If possible, have another source of income or financial support to rely on at first so you feel less anxious about getting clients.

Start with a lower fee

It will ease off the pressure. It’s a start and that start will propel you forward to more clients, more experience and more compensation. Consider this, even if you tell someone just one thing that’s helpful, it’s worth the $10 or whatever you’re charging and what you’re learning with each reading becomes priceless to you.

Then raise your fees.

It’s okay to start off lower. Part of your compensation is learning every time you do a reading. You’re not wasting your time or under valuing yourself. You’re doing a paid internship. Reconsider your fees every 6-12 months in the early years. You’ll know when the time is right to adjust.

Consider your needs

I wish I would’ve managed my schedule better in the early years. When my business took off I let myself get booked months in advance and it made me nuts. I got so overwhelmed I ended up taking a long break from seeing clients. What I evolved to is a better system of booking for about a month at a time and keeping more time open so I have more maneuvering room. Everyone else goes on a list.

It’s okay to be paid well

Being kind and generous is a beautiful way to live and you’ll have more energy and resources to help those you love and be an agent of love in the world if your earthly needs are met.

Poverty isn’t spiritual. Helping others get out of poverty and live well is easier to do when you have resources.

October 2021 Full Moon

This full moon is exact on Wednesday, October 20th at 10:57am ET. The moon is in Aries opposite the Libra sun, both at 27 degrees.

The cosmic mirror of this full moon is reflecting back to us our part in our lessons. It’s about being willing to acknowledge our karmic patterns that play out in relationships, or that we attribute to relationships, so that we can heal them.

It’s tempting to look at our pain or struggles and focus on something outside of ourselves. This is especially true with relationships. She lied. He cheated. They wouldn’t recognize my value, etc.

Yes! People are 100% responsible for their actions. This isn’t about excusing anyone or blaming victims.

I’m talking about owning your part in every encounter and relationship. That includes your choices, your fears, your insecurities, your needs, your gifts … everything you bring to relationships, including your expectations, fantasies, hopes, dreams, and agendas.

This full moon is an invitation to look at relationships in your life and instead of focusing on what they did or didn’t do, look at you. Look at what feelings, fears, and beliefs come up in you.

Instead of thinking about how you wish they would change, be open to owning what scares you, what hurts you, what beliefs keep you from seeing how lovable you are.

Seeing your own patterns is a huge first step in changing them. If you’re not ready to change, that’s okay. It’s okay to recognize something and not be ready to take action. The recognition is important. Too often we ignore facing truth because we aren’t ready to then take action. Be gentle with yourself and know that just being willing to see things differently is brave and valuable.

If you are ready to make a shift, the wind is at your back. You’ve got this.

Have a beautiful full moon.

houses

Empty Houses

Empty houses have value and meaning. The sign on the cusp shows the style you most often use in that area of life.

Empty houses are so interesting to me. Sometimes they show our blind spots, areas of life that have few conflicts and lessons, and parts of our lives that we kind of float in and out of oddly and easily.

Sometimes it’s more obvious why houses are empty, like when there are placements in the sign that naturally rules that house. For example, an empty sixth house with Virgo placements in the chart.

Sometimes it’s less obvious. I was talking with a friend recently about this and joked that when the house is empty and nothing is in the natural ruler, you’re screwed by blind spots. That’s not true. I have an empty second and nothing in Taurus. The whole chart always makes sense. There’s always a story and the why of an empty house is revealed just as much as those with planets.

Besides, there’s also always a way to deal with everything in the chart. In my experience, the folks that talk gloom and doom when looking at a chart just don’t understand it very well.

The crystal pictured is hiddenite. It’s a piece I’ve wanted for a while. I could see it in my mind and then for reals via VirgoGems which is perfect since the sign of Virgo seeks to make dreams real.

October 2021 New Moon

This new moon is exact on October 6th at 7:05am ET. It’s in Libra and is conjunct the sun and Mars all at 13 Libra and this trio is quincunx Uranus at 13 degrees.

So the energy of thirteen really colors this new moon. Thirteen is such a cool number.

As you most likely already know, thirteen is a very witchy number. It’s the one of self using the 3 of mind body spirit, to create a 4 of traditional nurturing and control. It isn’t aggressive, but it sets the table to get a desired result.

This new moon feels like an excellent time to emotionally connect in a deep way to what you want, especially when it comes to parts of yourself that you have kind of suppressed, ignored, or held back in some way because you didn’t feel like you had the freedom to really embrace and accept this part of yourself.

It’s also a time to look at how partnerships can support your desires and ambitions and how they can also limit your freedom. Being connected to others includes making agreements with them, and those agreements often have to get renegotiated over time. The circumstances of our lives change, we grow, evolve and change, and so relationships have to shift and change.

When you make any change within yourself, the people around you are required to make some sort of adjustment. The same is true for you. It can be tempting to want to keep people just as they are, for better or worse, because if they stay the same it gives us the option of staying the same.

So this new moon is also an invitation to not only support your desires and ambitions, but also to be open to allowing your partners and people you are close with to grow and expand and trust that you can adjust to who they need to be.

I’m going into to this new moon with the intention of increased clarity of both what I most want in life now and how I can stay true to going after what I want while supporting those closest to me as they go after what they want.

Have a beautiful new moon.

Mercury Retrograde

Have more conversations. I feel like there’s an abundance of opportunities now to hear your soul through your conversations with friends, both what they say to you and you say to them. Capricorn gives tangible value to these conversations.⁣

Regarding what to watch out for …⁣

⁣Everything you can imagine is happening in someone’s life right now. People are dying and being born … people are at war, others are making peace … people are falling in love, learning knew things, having their heart broken, getting hurt, finding their strength, moving to a new home …⁣

⁣Everything is possible and happening in someone’s life right now. Follow your intuition, your heart, your higher self that wants the best for you regardless of how much Gatorade people talk about. ⁣

⁣Do what’s right for you. Follow the timing your soul urges you towards. It is more profoundly reliable and impactful than any transit.⁣

⁣Thanks to the friend that inspired this post. I love talking with you. 💕⁣

September 2021 Full Moon

This full moon is exact on Monday 20 September 2021 at 7:55pm ET and this great cosmic mirror is bringing a huge opportunity this month. Huge.

I’m looking at the full moon happening at 28 degrees and the exact Jupiter Mercury trine at 23 degrees, and what this all shows is an amazing opportunity to recognize a karmic pattern that you are repeating again in this life and have a breakthrough moment where you see it, know it and you’re done.

You can stop repeating it. You can get out of the loop, jump off the wheel. Allow yourself a moment of grace where you see and do things differently.

How do you do this? It’s an opportunity to deal with regret by being so completely honest with yourself that you get it in a way you never have before. It’s like looking at yourself in the mirror and while doing so you look yourself straight in the eye. No hiding, avoiding, pretending … no guilt, no beating yourself up … none of these distractions. You are totally and wholly honest and something finally falls into place. You get it so clearly that you can finally move on and start fresh.

Having a conversation with yourself in your head is perfectly fine, though I’m going to urge you to take it a step farther. Do something to bring the thoughts into the material world for release. At a minimum, talk aloud. Have the conversation with yourself out loud so the words are spoken. You could also journal, write a letter to yourself, talk to some else, try to do something to communicate whatever feelings come up for you. You can even send me a DM and tell me what you release. However you do it, take some kind of step to move it out of you to fully acknowledge and release it.

A great intention going into this full moon is to be open to releasing repetitive karmic patterns to experience and express your highest good.

Have a beautiful full moon.

Pluto transits

If you have something at 24 Capricorn (or within a few degrees) in your natal chart Pluto has been transiting it for a few months now. Have you felt the invitation?

Transits are what outside energy will or won’t do for you. If you’re open to this transit, there is a huge amount of support for you to work with the energy Pluto is touching. It’s time to dig deeper into understanding this part of yourself, to understand your choices, to release and transform.

Smoky Quartz

It may not always feel like an easy opportunity, but it is empowering. The universe isn’t cruel and doesn’t toy with you. The more open you are to making a shift, the more it feels like an opportunity.

Transiting Pluto touching your Jupiter, what an incredible opportunity to be empowered by facing the truth about yourself and drawing strength from your integrity and willingness to share your truth. If it’s touching your Mercury, you understand more clearly the power of your words and the transformation available through communication.

When transiting Pluto lands on anything in your natal chart, it’s an invitation to feel more empowered through that part of yourself.

Pluto will at 24 degrees of Capricorn for a few more months. It goes to 25 degrees in December. Transits with outer planets last longer, because they take longer to advance through the zodiac (they take longer to complete a revolution around the sun).
