On Spiritual Sustainability

You know you’re in the process of letting go when all you want to do is hold on to it. Our basic instinct is to save what is dying because we are not conscious in our conception phase. This is when the universe takes the reigns for a short bit while we are in a jumbled mess of emotions. We end up feeling extra emotional during transitional phases because we are being forced to follow our feelings like an invisible thread. Following that thread usually takes you to the unconscious beginning of that end. For example, when a relationship is ending you naturally feel sad. When you follow that sadness it will lead you to the feeling that got you into you that relationship. Maybe it was a lack of self love? Things end as they began, so perhaps the key to sustaining something is through growth. A seed is never meant to be a seed forever. It has to flower eventually. When a plant dies it returns every part of itself to the soil and becomes a seed once again. I have known people who owned the same plants for 20 + years. It’s not unheard of but does require tender loving care a.k.a sensitive attention to its needs. When we experience a positive new beginning we are excited and optimistic. Unfortunately those feeling soon ware off once we become caught up in routine, responsibility, expectation, and the need for recognition. These become blocks to our conscious awareness. We bottle up irritability, hurt, and stress out if fear that if we were to express them, we would lose our relationship or job or whatever it might be. Imagine what would happen to our plant if we stopped enjoying the beauty of the plant and got caught up in having to water it everyday and remove its dead leaves? You would lose interest in the plant, ignore it, and eventually it would die. The minute we stop being conscious participants in our own growth, that relationship or job dies.

With all of the Astrology and occultic subjects I have studied, I have come to learn that the only free will we have is how we choose to respond to events in our life. If we take time to be present in our endings we will realize that we abused the gift of its beginning. If you are someone who has experienced alot of death and rebirth in your life it’s because there is some major theme that has not been made conscious in order to be released. There is a huge difference between abrupt endings and death and that is…..Consciousness. Most of us have not experienced a true death ( I don’t mean physical death)  more often we have experienced things ending suddenly or unexpectedly. This is the higher self’s way of giving you a time-out. Death on the other hand is when you have reached a maximum exaltation point in a karmic lesson. These are usually preceded by an emotional breakdown and are succeeded by a major life changing event. Too often we experience loss because the person we are with or situation we are in, are no longer facilitating our growth because it wasn’t consciously chosen by us in the first place. How many of us entered a new relationship or job with the goal of growing as a person? No, we want security, money, lifestyle, acceptance etc. The more aware we are of why a new beginning is happening, the easier it will be for us to see that invisible thread that is guiding us to our truth. That sight is how you can sustain something in order to fulfill your karmic lesson, as opposed to having to go through tons of people and situations to fulfill it. Maintaining your conscious participation will allow you to live a fuller life.

Happy Hypatia Day!

Hypatia was a famous astronomer, astrologer, pagan philosopher, mathematician, numbers theorist, astrologer, experimental scientist, political figure and teacher of Ancient Alexandria. Profoundly liberated for her time, she refused to marry and drove her own chariots through the streets of the city. The invention of the astrolabe is accredited to her.

Hypatia was a free thinker, and was murdered by a Christian mob as a result of her open mind. Her murder is thought to have commenced the dark ages.
Many believed that Hypatia was actually a sorceress, as centuries later a Coptic Egyptian Bishop said this about her “she was devoted at all times to magic, astrolabes and instruments of music, and she beguiled many people through her Satanic wiles”.

Waxing Crescent Moon in Aries Oracle

The waxing crescent phase is all about being on a mission to manifestation. In this phase we feel a very strong pull towards making our dreams that were imagined during the New Moon phase, a reality. Amazonite assists in manifesting, and carnelian aids creativity.

Leaves #octoberoracle

As I watch the leaves fall, what I am really doing is observing the passage of time. This year has been reflective and transformational for many of us. What I love about leaves, is that when they wither away, they don’t turn black, but golden, red, and orange, as if to remind us, that we too will hopefully become golden the older and older we get. Golden with wisdom and grace.

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces Tarot Spread

Hi all, I thought I would share a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Tarot spread that I have come up with. The spread itself, is a pretty standard Full Moon spread, however, I have tweaked a couple of questions, and have added my own questions as well. This spread uses 9 cards, which I feel is super appropriate since we are in a triple 9 vibration all month long.

I can’t wait to try this out tomorrow during our Eclipse, and I hope you all enjoy it as well!

There is also another fun Tarot reading that you can do during this Eclipse, which involves finding The Moon card in your deck, and seeing which card is behind it. The card behind The Moon is what is presently being eclipsed in your life, or what your shadow is at this point. I would recommend using The Moon as opposed to The High Priestess, since The Moon card is associated with Pisces, which makes sense since this lunation is happening in the sign of Pisces!

Enjoy, and many Eclipse blessings to you all!

Virgo: The Cosmic Mechanic

Now that the celebratory season of Leo is over, and you have embraced your inner lion king or queen, it is now time to put your kingdom in order. With Virgo, the divine is in the details. Virgo season is one of cleaning and fixing up your life! The symbol of Virgo is the virgin, representing the purity and innocence of this time of year. Virgo’s remove any impurities from their life, whether that be mental, emotional, physical, or material. Out of all the times of the year, now until September 22, is a time when the connection between mind and body is of the utmost importance. Impurity is the root cause of sickness in all its forms. Have a clean state of mind, and the physical body will show the same. Physical toxins represent spiritual toxins.

Virgo season is a time to pay attention to the details, analyze what needs to be removed and what needs to be introduced in your life. Since Mercury is the ruling planet during this time, repairing the broken is to ensure life runs more smoothly down the road. Making adjustments now, is not for the present, but for the future.

Virgo season is the season of fixing things up! This is the time when the cosmos will shine a blaring light down on what is broken. When we find things in the external that have are in shambles, this is only a reflection of what needs to be fixed spiritually within us. Virgo’s are givers, and represent the spiritual gift of service. How can one be in service, if their spiritual selves are cluttered with all that does not serve them? Get our your Book of Shadows and start making notes of what needs to be done. Remember, our outer worlds are always reflecting back to us our inner worlds, so use the Virgo ability of observation to closely observe the omens, signs, and symbols which are communicating to you about your higher self.

So Roll up your sleeves, and become your own cosmic mechanic this season by channeling the divine to know how to fix what is broken, and you will start to see that what needed to be repaired, was only you!

Tips

Green Moss Agate is the perfect crystal for Virgo’s as the green colour correlates to the earth sign and groundedness of this time. It also promotes physical health.

Green Aventurine sharpens the eyes, which will help you to “see” during this very analytical time. This stone is also a lucky stone to bring forth opportunities!
