A powerful yet gentle healer and cleanser, Amber draws out and transmutes negative energy of all kinds on all levels. Amber aids in physical self-healing, emotional healing of depression, and environmental clearing. Amber opens and cleanses all of the Chakras. In very simple terms, in order to qualify a piece of resin as true Amber, a couple of things need to have happened. First, the molecules must have formed a polymer (a compound where two or more molecules have joined together) and secondly, the specimen must be at least 100,000 years old.
Highly protective, Amber also aids in the manifestation of ideas to reality. The life force trapped within Amber promotes fertility, and its protective and environmental clearing properties make it a good stone to use to prepare a healing or birthing room. Use it with the Solar Plexus Chakra to increase confidence, mental clarity, and creative self-expression.
Physically, Amber helps with the organs of elimination, including the liver, kidneys, bladder, and stomach. Also a stone of the Throat Chakra, Amber can help with laryngitis and goiter.
although aries give the impression of invincibility, they are profoundly sensitive and quite emotionally charged. aggression tends to compensate for their personal insecurities. they are emotionally complex people, and capable of severe, unexpected outbursts of feelings
her mirrors are not (just) about beauty, or vain imaginings of self, but an invitation to see yourself as you really are and not how others (or you) wish you to be.
be you..be original…be truth
truth = beauty. something you are not = something someone else already was/is
Card of the Week [8.4.14]
Our card of the week to kick off August is the Queen of Cups. As a Cancerian, she is near and dear to my heart as she is the Queen of Water and therefore represents those water women (Cancerians, Scorpions, Pisceans) who have mastered their emotions and their intuitive selves.
This woman is unafraid of her watery depths and is often a mystery to those she encounters. Unbeknownst to them, she is sometimes a mystery unto herself! She walks through life feeling, the quintessential empath; and this can sometimes get her in trouble when those with less emotional honesty and bravery are in her cipher. Think of a calm lake and then a pebble tossed into its waters. This is how things affect her. Ripple effects. The smallest of disturbances in her environment are sensed by her and affect her to her core.
So yes, she is sensitive, no doubt, but all this means is that her senses are heightened. She picks up on the subtlest vibrations, making her a sponge. She therefore, has to be careful of her environment and the people she allows close to her. This makes her seem standoffish or shy as a result, and perhaps, at times, she is. But more than anything, she is feeling things out…as she should! She has to protect herself so she can be herself and exude the intuitive power and majesty that is her gift to the world!
At her worst, she is over-emotional, and sensitive to a fault. At her best, of all the Queens, she is the most in tune with the All. She is watery water, the feminine principle to the utmost degree. She can be those blue-green waters of the sea, teeming with life, or the mighty mighty depths where no one knows what lies in its realm. She can be that calm lake, or the roaring ocean, so don’t get caught up in her sensitivity and forget the strength and furor that water can hold and unleash…
And how appropriate that she would appear on this Monday (Moon-day) since her ruler is indeed the moon. And today’s Moon is in her domain, as it presently lies in 22deg Scorpio (my natal moon! :) Her presence then, reminds us to pay homage to this celestial power and become more in tune with its movements. New moons, Full moons and all the phases in between. If the moon affects the tides of the vast oceans, surely, as human beings comprised of mostly water, the moon affects us too. We all need to be aware of these cycles so we can take a bigger step towards being aligned with the All.
So here is to our women who guide us and nurture us, our mothers, the Moon, and the feminine principle within us all! Look deep. Be deep. Now, deeper. Okay, even deeper! (The Scorpio moon says so!) Your dreams are speaking, both those in your waking life and those that come to you in your sleep…take heed! Be your intuitive self and listen to your inner voice, the waters within, the messenger of your Soul!

It’s a 7-7-7 day, so what better day than today for the Wheel of Fortune to appear? So what is a 7-7-7 day? It’s the 7th month, the 25th day of the month, (2+5 = 7) and we are in a 7 year (2+0+1+4 = 7). Many know 7 to be a lucky number, or a divine…
