January 2018 Capricorn New Moon

By Krista Mitchell

Crystal Support for the Capricorn 2018 New Moon

The new moon in Capricorn, sign of ambition, industry and goals, happens this Tuesday January 16th at 9:17pm ET.

What to be aware of for this new moon:

  • This new moon phase is being described as a “rollercoaster”. With six planets sitting in the sign and the building of eclipse season energy, the next few days could feel tumultuous and overwhelming, potentially giving rise to conflicts and endings in your relationships, friendships, careers, lifestyles, travel plans, and home life.
  • While this new moon comes at the start of the year, a time when you may feel the need to be proactive in planning and pursuing your goals for the year, the emphasis is on going within, taking care of yourself, and focusing on introspection, contemplation, and meditation until a couple of days after the new moon.
  • There may be a tendency to act impulsively, feel fatigued, irritable, and argumentative, so the more you can give yourself quiet time, self-care and nourishment, and solitude, the better.
  • Intuition, insight, and sensitivity will be heightened at this time, and steps taken in the next few days will initiate major shifts in your life that can have very happy and beneficial results IF you work at remaining grounded, rational, and balanced when making decisions.

Overall guidance for this new moon in Capricorn: take these next few days as an opportunity to find quiet time, amp up your self-care routine, connect with your inner wisdom, and invest in your soul journey, and all will work out for the best! 🙂

Winter Blues ~ Healing Crystals

By Tara Mideaker

I never thought that it would happen to me.  I watched it happen to others and empathized with the urge to just give in to the cold, dark days that make you want to forego your normal routine.  While it is natural to rest during the winter months, it can be a challenge for most of us to give in and let go of our busy schedules.  It is very healthy and beneficial to change your routine and “play hooky” from your life every once and a while.  But you want that rebellion to come from a place of fun and whimsy and not because your current circumstances are depleting your energy.  Here are some ideas to help when you feel overwhelmed and tired of it all.

Charge your water with Green Tourmaline.  Green Tourmaline has so much fiery, aggressive, masculine energy that it cannot help but revive your spirit.  I keep a bottle of water in my refrigerator with a Green Tourmaline bracelet on it.  I drink it in the morning and it fuels my energy for the rest of the day.

Change your light bulbs.  I know this sounds goofy but I recently ran out of light bulbs and could only find those that simulate Daylight.  It is amazing how they have completely changed the energy in my home. Every room feels brighter and lighter and my crystals love them.  Just try one and see if it doesn’t make a difference.

Carry and/or wear Tiger Eye.  Powerful Tiger Eye gives you courage and strengthens your willpower.  Whether you use Brown, Red, or Blue, it can help you trust yourself and that inner voice that will let you know when to keep going and when to stop.  Carry all three with you for a day and see how it feels.

Try something new.  There is nothing more exciting than doing something different.  Maybe you always wanted to try a dance class or learn how to make jewelry.  Now is a great time to go for it and many places offer free trials.  You will feel happier doing something that you love.

Surround yourself with Clear Quartz.  Clear Quartz chases away any negative energy, increases the positive vibrations and draws in more light.  It will brighten everything, including your mood and outlook.

*If you believe that you may be depressed, please seek medical counsel. Crystals are for healing and should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care. Please consult your healthcare specialist for your particular needs.

Incense

secretsoftheserpent

The word incense comes from the Latin ‘ incendere’ meaning “to burn”. Incense has been found in every culture and civilization. Most of incense burning is done for religious purposes, but was also used for medicinal purposes, perfuming an area, time keeping, an aphrodisiac, aesthetic purposes or just any ceremonial purposes. Why is incense so widely used around the world? What is the true purpose of incense? To get the answers we must go to Ancient Egypt.

Luck

secretsoftheserpent

Luck is seemingly random events that happen to us all. If the events are good, we see them as good luck. If the events are bad, we see them as bad luck. Witches and Wizards know they create their own luck. They will set intentions, take action and luck happens. When you sit and do nothing, bad luck is normally what you get. Things happen to you instead of making things happen.

The Wolf Moon also brings another interesting astrological movement— Uranus moves into Taurus. This pairing can mean a few things, but most expert astrologers conjecture that it means we will experience some extreme weather events in 2018 that will likely be sudden and unexpected. On a more energetic level, Uranus in Taurus also brings our connection to nature into awareness. Taurus has to do with agriculture, food distribution, and finances, so look for lots of innovation and growth in this space. On a more personal level, we may also experience a distorting of technology and ourselves. How have cell phones and addictive apps impacted human connection, mental health, and physical health? While you may already feel the effects of this in your life, this theme will be explored more in 2018. With it hopefully comes to a renaissance of getting dirty in nature and understanding how plants can heal the…

Full Moon In Cancer ~ January 1st

By Brana Mijatovic, Ph.D., Crystal Cosmopolitan

     Full Moon coinciding with the beginning of a New Year is quite a rare thing! I would not go as far as to say that it will determine the unfolding of the whole year, but it will certainly give us a big theme to develop within 2018!
     Full Moon in Cancer is asking us to take better care of ourselves and understand how important self-nourishment is. The last year has had quite a few dramatic astrological events, and this year should be somewhat calmer, at least in terms of its aspects.
     However, we have experienced what it feels like being under almost continual pressure throughout the year, and many people have experienced recurring health challenges.
     So I will keep it short and sweet — take care of yourselves and your loved ones much more than ever before. Pay attention to your emotions, your imagination and your intuition and let go of any memories that no longer serve your highest good. Use the Element of Water to help you release those memories. Strengthen the energy of your heart. The stone to work with for this is Rhodochrosite and any other stone that you intuitively choose during the Full Moon on Monday and Tuesday.
Have a wonderful and a prosperous 2018!!
Till next time — stay healthy and happy!

I have had several emails referring to my last post. The questions are asking, “How can you say what we are here to do is grow?” I’m going to get very deep on this post, so if I give you a headache for the New Year, I’m sorry. I admit, this post will not be understood by many. Hell, most of my writings are understood by very few and this one will be understood by even fewer. We are not here to bow down to some bearded man who wants to be praised all the time or to consume as much as possible and who ever has the most when they die wins.

Growth

Everything has cycles … Expansion – Contraction … Construction – Destruction. It is all part of daily life.

secretsoftheserpent

Growth is what we are here to do. Growth is creativity. It does not matter what you grow in, just as long as you grow. Growth is not possible without practice and training. All to often we think of victory as growth. Nature does not care about victory, she is only interested in growth. Growth is possible only to the one who is constantly expanding his or her abilities. When you think you have won, you stop growing. A team that is not challenged will not get better. If you are playing a video game and it is to easy, eventually you will get bored with it. I am not saying accept defeat. Defeat is a state of mind. The person who realizes all growth possibilities are with in themselves never accepts defeat.
