SPRING EQUINOX

SPRING EQUINOX

The Spring Equinox is the crossing of the sun when day and night are at an impasse and come together. From here the day progresses and the night recedes as we move into the 1st day of Spring.

In this new astrological year it's time to take and eagle eye view of our path and the progress. Are we headed where we aimed to be? Or are we floating through our decisions on a path that we had no hand in creating.

We are drifting out of Pisces and into Aries, the holder of action. A power play if you will to put those things you've been ruminating about into real motion. This doesn't mean patience has come to an end. NONO! In fact, once the message for inspiration has come down, then begins the real test of patience as you work through the weeds tweaking, testing and perfecting this rumination.

Write today. Write today reviewing your goals, action and progress from the past year, then set the intention for what is to come. BE DELIBERATE. BE THOUGHTFUL. BE BRAZEN!

Did you set an intention to work with crystals more this year?

Written by Charissa Moore at estesenergetics.com

Whether you’re a crystal lover, jewelry fiend, or wanting to spiritually enrich your life, new moons are a great time to set intentions. As the new moon energy comes closer, we want to be laser-focused on what we want to manifest and the seeds we’re sowing to bloom at the full moon.

This can look like wanting to find new ways to incorporate crystals into our lives and work. I have favorite crystals I use often, and I’d thought I’d share a few of them as well as information about the properties of each. These are all incredible energies to align with during the new moon.

Citrine - It is common to find citrine ranging in color from pale lemon yellow to deep golden yellow. It is beneficial for cleansing and re-energizing each chakra. It boosts optimism, self-confidence, and concentration. Citrine is excellent for detoxing, so it makes a perfect additional to any health-related resolutions you set for yourself. If you've added exercise to your schedule in the new year, citrine is amazing for alleviating fatigue and increasing motivation! It is best when worn in contact with skin. *warning*: when buying citrine make sure to ask if it's natural or heat treated so you're aware of the type of product you're purchasing.

Rose Quartz - Speaking to the heart and higher heart chakras, rose quartz is a very gentle but powerful quartz crystal. Needing Cupid to speed things up in the love department before Valentine’s day? Try placing rose quartz by your bed or in the love corner of your home. A beautiful emotional healer, it strengthens empathy, promotes receptivity, encourages self-acceptance and forgiveness. Opening the chest and lungs, it can foster more receptivity to beauty of all kinds. Rose Quartz is a high-vibration crystal and one I often use for new moon intentions surrounding partnership, love, and teamwork.

 

 

Clear Quartz - Considered to be the master stone, clear quartz is a very high vibration crystal. Harmonizing and aligning all chakras this is a very powerful crystal. It is a powerful healer and energy amplifier. It stores, absorbs, releases, and regulates energy. It is common to find this crystal in necklace or earring form. Key chains are quite popular as well. Clear quartz enhances metaphysical abilities and is a stone I carry with me at all times. It improves energy, has a cleansing effect upon the organs, protects the immune system, and brings the entire body into balance. When held against the body with the termination (pointed end) pointing away from the body, you can draw off negative energy in the energetic field before it takes root in the physical form.

I hope you take the time to slowly incorporate these quartz crystals into your life and benefit from their amazing and healthful properties. Use them to help strengthen your new moon manifestations, intentions, and dreams.

Why The New Look

Why The New Look

I will make this quick, but I felt it was important to talk about why I dedicated so much time and resources to our new site. When I was doing the daily vlog (which will be coming back shortly), I really felt that I wanted to reach out and connect more to my consumers. I was hearing such great feedback that I knew I needed to skew my platform to be more content friendly. 

With that said I took on creating a bigger space here for content and hopefully that allow everyone who is interested to engage more. Eventually I'd like to also open up a question section to allow people to ask either about the products I sell or more importantly about some of the interesting information I share about on social media.

I will come back to share more later about my intention for this new site, but in the meantime it's the new moon in Aquarius and it feels more important to share about that.
