Self Care Sundays: Therapeutic Crystal Sets

Posted On: September 30, 2018

Therapy differs for each individual. In the visuals for Young M.A's song 'Car Confessions,'  riding through the city is her meaning of therapy. This is how Young M.A clears her mind and the conscious part of it, how she is able to look at things from different angles and analyze them, to discover meaning and understanding. For Young M.A, solitude is therapeutic as she rides the city streets and relieves herself of stress.

For others, it might be going to the gym, listening to music, quiet moments near the ocean; or talking to someone like a therapist. Some might relieve themselves of stress in moments of solitude, while others need assistance in helping them to release their stress.


Crystals are another form of therapy. It is the utilization of metaphysics and spirituality in dispensing stressful energies and also, harnessing essential and vital energies. In transmuting stress, anxiety and etc.

With that said, we came across these Crystal Sets  (pictured below) from Gem State Boutique, which can be applied as therapeutic sets.

The crystal sets vary, most of them include crystal bracelets that can be worn anytime and once you charge them in the sun (solar energy) or during a full moon (lunar energy), the bracelets will heal or enhance your energies. That's what makes these crystal sets therapeutic. Most of the sets also include: crystal infused rollerball perfume, not only will you be smelling good but your energy will be feeling good. Last but not least, the crystal sets vary in their inclusion of: crystal angels (pictured below), crystal jewelry, crystal points and obelisk, crystal hearts; and etc.

Some of the crystal sets consist of palm stones (pictured below), which are very good in generating energies when rubbed between the palms of hands. And also, a great alternative to stress balls. The difference between palm stones and stress balls are, energies are being provoked or generated with the use of palm stones.

It's Self Care Sundays and although, self care is every day. If you're looking or finding alternative ways to relieve stress, alleviate yourself of anxieties and healing methods, crystals are very effective. For overall wellness, vitality and well being.

Energy Forecast of The Day: 'The Next Cycle'

Posted On: September 30, 2018

"The Next Cycle."


Just like the earth, Mother Nature goes through seasons which are actually, cycles; and so do we. The moon goes through cycles as well, just like we do. Wherever you maybe in your life right now or whatever you might be going through, just know with all cycles there's always an ending that brings in a new beginning. Whatever it maybe, if it's not good, tomorrow will be better. And in order for that tomorrow to be better, your mindset must be able to envision it in your present moment. That is the gift of the future.

In The Moon Tarot's Energy Reading for Today, it is advised to prepare yourselves in strength with the impression of one thing being accomplished or completed. To usher in the new aspects of what will become your testimonies.

Check the full reading below.

With its Tarot divination of The Seven of Wands, Lord of Valour card. As expressed by The Moon Tarot, there are new tests. So, have no fear and whatever the challenges are, those challenges are designed to mold changes in you for the betterment of yourselves.

Energy Forecast of The Day: 'Protect Your Energy'

Posted On: September 28, 2018

'Protect Your Energy'


It's an act of self care.

Energy has always been around, it's nothing new. It's the universe's language. Energy as expressed before is spiritual currency, in the manner of exchanges but on an energetic level. Energy currencies and exchanges.

Whenever you come in contact with other people, there is always a form of energetic exchanges. One way to identify it is how do you feel around a person or persons? and after they've left? Energetic exchanges can either nurture, fortify and magnify your energies, or deplete and drain them as depicted in The Moon Tarot's Today's Energy Reading. In other words, energetic exchanges add, subtract or synchronize.

There's regular energetic exchanges and then, there's sexual energy exchanges (sex) through sexual relations (I will get into that some other time).

Your energies are a form of currency, view it as that and it is very, very valuable. Without it, you can't do anything. It is your life force. It is the power that empowers your life and everything around you. It's your power source. You apply energy to create, you apply energy to manifest, objects can't move until you apply your energy to physically move it; and etc.

They've even tried to manufacture energy and sell you it in a can, that's how beneficial and valuable your energy is.

There are some people when they get really mad or upset, the lights in their homes flicker or the fuse of the light bulbs blow out, that's how magnifying a person's energy can be. Or a person has a Midas touch energy. Whereas, energy is amplifying if charged, harnessed from within and generated properly.

With that said, below is the full energy reading for today.

You can feel or sense when your energy is being drained, so take the proper precautions in protecting oneself and honor yourself in that act of self care. And the rest of the reading is self explanatory. Self care is healthcare, it's not just a lifestyle but a way of life.

The Tarot divination is The Prince of Swords who defends and protects their inner peace.

Insights: Venus Retrograde in Scorpio (Part 2)

Posted On: September 27, 2018

This is part 2 of Venus Retrograde in Scorpio, I will try to be brief with this one but informative. The irony of this part 2 is Venus goes retrograde in Scorpio and goes direct in Libra

As expressed, Scorpio's symbol is the scorpion which likes to unearth things and in Tarot divination, The Death card is the tarot symbology for Scorpio. Not literal death but transformations and evolution. Something has to end, in order for something new to start or begin. Venus and its cosmic energies is divine femininity that oversees love, relationships, harmony, finances and value in itself as what is valuable to you; and etc. We've covered some of this in part 1. Venus is everything that is feminine, she's like the softness of a flower petal.

With Scorpio, to me it's a sign that is masculine in its energies, it's also dominant, although Scorpio's element is water, because of its intensity, it feels more like fire. Scorpio's unearthing of things peels away at layers to the core. So basically, Venus Retrograde in Scorpio is Venus going through hell, walking through that fire and going through a tsunami and uncharted waters, in order to heal, transform and evolve. This is the unearthing of your spirit and soul, peeling away at all those layers to get to the authenticity of your spirit and soul. And live boldly in it.


Scorpio's trait also, deals with things that are taboo when it comes to secrets and all that is hidden, or even swept under the rug. Venus retrograding in Scorpio has to face all of that. Your dark side coming to light and seeing yourself in your own shadows. Venus retrograde in Scorpio is a good time to do shadow work and exercise your demons in training them to serve you.

This will help, guide and strengthen a person to face external demons. There are somethings some people don't want to face and would rather escape them through projections. And project the pain from those things unto others. It can be anything from sexual traumas, abuse of any sort relating to love and relationships: either from parents, families or those that were trusted and failed to love and protect these people in love and harmony; and etc. With this whole #MeToo movement, it's one thing to face the people who assaulted you and want justice but how about the demons that assault created, you got your justice and the person went to prison, but yet you're imprisoned with the pain, the shame, the demons that wreak havoc on your spirits and souls. The avoidance of healing because healing is so painful and messy. Rape is not just a physical assault that affects a person psychologically but it also affects the psyche, the heart and womb spiritually.

Yesterday, I saw a video of a woman speaking out about what's going on with Brett Kavanaugh and shared her experience of being raped and assaulted. This woman was filled with pain that I shed some tears for her. And I could feel and sense that she carries this pain with her and is imprisoned in it. And yearning to be free.  When a woman gets raped, she carries the energy of that experience in her heart and womb and she carries the energy of her assaulter's energy in her heart and womb. This is an aspect of it that nobody talks about because it is taboo, the spiritual aspect of it that some people are afraid to face.  And how utilizing the tools in spirituality helps a person cleanse, purify and redeem themselves from the energies of their assaulter and the energies of that traumatic experience. In also cleansing, purifying and redeeming their hearts and wombs.

I also, observe a lot of women speaking out against their assaults and I admire all of you for your strength and courage. One thing that baffles me is: nobody has open up the forum to talk about healing and self care to help these women move forward, to release the pain and traumas they carry and their energies, to break free from the prisons they've built from their traumatic experiences; and etc.

With this Venus Retrograde in Scorpio, now is the time to heal, to go through the fire to find yourself again and filter out what is not you. To restore and redeem yourselves because you deserve it! To restore your heart, your womb and all that is divine in your essence.

May all that's been broken, damaged and shamed in you, be restored in wholeness of the beautiful person you are.




Energy Forecast of The Day: "Step Out of Your Own Way"

Posted On: September 27, 2018

"Step Out of Your Own Way"


That is one of the key points in the Energy Forecast of The Day to help you unlock the person you were created to be, to help you unlock your divine gifts, blessings, hidden potentials to manifest; and etc.

With that said, the full Energy Forecast of the Day is brought to you by The Moon Tarot's "Today's Energy Reading."  below.

How does this reading resonate with you? What do you have to do to step out of your own way? There is no greater enemy than the enemy of self. The only way to diminish enemies outside of you is to confront the internal enemy and discover the friend within. 

Another key point with The Moon Tarot's energy reading for today is: "the blockages that you resist are also blocking your blessings." How does that relate or pertain to you? What are your blockages? What are the things that you are resisting dealing with or healing from? Where you are choosing to escape through projections and projecting these things or situations unto others. It's basically how you see a wall, do you see it as a blockages? Or the opportunity to build a door? Perception is your tool and how you utilize it creates or destroys.

The Tarot divination is The Chariot and everything that's expressed in this reading of facing your obstacles with confidence and strength.

And the other highlighted key point is: "you can balance both light and dark within you." The Moon Tarot's expression of that key point is basically alignment from within is your source to freedom. With Libra Season, balance restores all.

Energy Forecast of The Day: Gather the Power to Make a Change

Posted On: September 26, 2018

"Gather the Power to Make a Change."


That's a hint of Today's Energy Reading. But it's self explanatory.

Change starts with thyself. It's not about anybody else changing or what anybody else is doing, change is about self and starts with self. In order, for everything else to change. Everybody has the power to change and make a difference in their lives, it's your life and your responsibility. Inhale, exhale, breathe in and breathe out. Notice how nobody else can do that for thyself so therefore, nobody else can make a change in your life but thyself. It could relate to anything from changing your eating habits, you career, environment and etc. It all starts with self.

With that said, check out the full Energy Reading below by The Moon Tarot.

And its Tarot divination of the Ace of Wands.

Full Moon Aries Invocation

With soul conviction, as you repeat these words, may your spirit fortify their truths.

Aries Full Moon Energy Ritual

Posted On: September 24, 2018

Today's Aries Full Moon is the peak of lunar energy. The full moon draws in many other energies such as: cosmic energies with Saturn and Chiron, the shift of season from Summer to Autumn, the beginning of Libra Season; and the Autumn Equinox. And it's also, a Harvest Moon. Which makes Aries Full Moon a very powerful moon, especially with Aries' elemental fire energy. Fire and air (wind) are spirit energies because it's easier for spirits to flow through them. Fire is solar energy in alignment with the sun and solar energy is associated with the soul.

This Aries Full Moon Energy Ritual is two parts with the combination of all these other energies, especially Libra season. The first part is about releasing what no longer is serving us for our highest and greatest good, releasing it into the fire and re-birthing ourselves out of those ashes.

The second part of the Aries Full Moon Energy Ritual is about harnessing, drawing and consuming this Aires Full Moon's energy, to refine ourselves in the midst of its fire, revive or vitalize our energies. 


1 Brown Jumbo Altar candle (Release & Grounding)

1 Orange Jumbo Altar candle (Strength & Ambition)

1 Red Jumbo Altar candle (Passion (fire) & Vitality)

Florida Water or Holy/Anointed Water

1 sheet of brown paper, can use brown paper bag

18 Bay Leaves

9 Mint Leaves

Frankincense Essential Oil or

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

Holy or Anointed Oil

Small Cast Iron Cauldron

2 Small Plates


Clean environment. Shower, turn off all TV's, phones and etc. so you will not be distracted. If you have an altar, you can do this energy work on your altar, if not, find a small table or clear a table to do this work. Pour some Florida Water on your hands and rub your hands. Then clean all three candles with either Florida Water or anointed water. Clean plates and the cauldron as well. Then anoint the candles and plates with Holy Oil or anointed oil. Wash hands and pour some Florida Water on hands and rub them.

Anoint yourself with the Holy or anointed oil. Dab some Frankincense or Ylang Ylang essential oil into your hands and rub them in a circular motion to arouse your energy. Then smell your hands, inhale the aroma of the essential oil to get you in the mood. Now that your vibe is right, meditate. 


Clear your mind and meditate. Allow your vibes, your vibration to flow. Envision yourself in the midst of the Aries Full Moon, inside this giant ball of fire. Take the jumbo brown altar candle and hold it in one hand. Visualize what it is you want to release and envision it searing in this giant ball of fire. Let it ignite and scorch until it becomes ashes. Now, take the jumbo red altar candle and hold it in your other hand. Visualize and step on the ashes, as you're gleaming, enkindled and illuminated as one with this Aires Full Moon. Re-birthing and emerging as the Phoenix.

Put both of the activated candles on the table.

Pick up the jumbo orange altar candle and hold it with both hands. Visualize yourself as the Phoenix, grounded in some of Aries' traits (strength, ambition & etc.) that you need to incorporate into your own. Then put the orange activated candle on the table.

Take one of the plates and make a circle with nine bay leaves, and place the jumbo brown altar candle in the middle. Strike a match and light the candle.

On the brown sheet of paper, write what you want to release. After that's done, take the paper and rub it between your hands and say, "I release and let go." Anoint the paper, fold and place the brown piece of paper inside the cauldron. Along with the nine Bay leaves and blow on it nine times. Dab a little Holy or anointed oil into the cauldron, strike a match and set it all on fire. Let it cool down and flush the ashes in the toilet bowl.

Wash your hands to signify the release of those things.

Again, pour some Florida Water in your hands and rub them. Let the jumbo brown candle burn for at least an hour, play some music about releasing and letting things go.

After an hour, make a circle with the nine mint leaves and place both of the orange and red jumbo altar candles in the middle. Strike a match and light the candles. As both candles burn, sit in front of them and focus in on the light. As you're focusing on the light, harness and consume its energies of vitality, passion, strength, ambition; and etc. Visualize yourself as the light, dancing and illuminating as its energies.

Play some upbeat or motivational music, dance, let the energies flow through you; and vibe out to it. As you are now reborn and a new emergence as the Phoenix in the midst of today's Aries Full Moon. Burning away all that no longer is serving you for your highest and greatest good. And rising out the ashes, refined and polished.

As the candles burn out, give thanks with a prayer of gratitude and much blessings! There's More To You Than You Think


Libra Season: The Balancing of the Scales

Posted On: September 23, 2018

Libra season is officially here and ushering in the energy of balance, to teach us areas, aspects in our lives we need to balance.

To adjust and balance these scales, there has to be a tipping point. For any kind of transformation, evolution, change to occur; and etc., one must reach a tipping point.Tipping points are what inspires and motivates balance to be restored.

Meditate on this and ask yourself, what is your tipping point? Or what are your tipping points? A tipping point is usually something that leads to nothing. Where the scale is leaning too much on one side, it’s heavy, it’s a burden; and causing an imbalance. One would have to rid themselves or eradicate this heaviness and burden, in order to adjust and redeem/restore balance.


A tipping point can be anything such as: it can be where a person is giving too much and there’s no balance of reciprocity. This could be a career, a job, a relationship; and etc. There’s an imbalance of reciprocal energy in the form of energy exchanges. A tipping point can also, be letting an issue or a problem build up, where it’s become a burden. The tipping point motivates and leads to the solution for a resolution.

Adjusting and balancing the scales, to lighten things up and elevate.

Libra season can teach us how to balance the solar and lunar energies in our magick. To serve and benefit us for our highest and greatest good. Also, balancing these energies within ourselves and our connections to the earth, spiritual and cosmic realms; and Mother Nature.

Balancing the laws of duality in the universe and nature from within ourselves, in as above, so below. Light and darkness, divine feminine and divine masculine energies in the form of Goddess and God, crown and root chakra, the higher realms and lower realms; and etc.

Utilizing this Libra energy also, to align and balance the scales of our crown chakra and mental energies. In accordance to our heart chakra and energies in motion (emotions, feelings).

Libra season’s significance and symbology is liken to the Justice card in Tarot divination. Where justice shall prevail, vindication and the restoration of wholeness.

In numerology, Libra season’s significance and symbology is the number 2. It represents duality in the alignment of things being whole. How two becomes one. Without duality, there would be an imbalance of the uni (the law of one) in the universe. This one verse in the universe that brings all things together as one.

May the commencement of Libra season and its energies serve us well.

Bless it be!

And Happy Birthdays Libras!

Insights: Aries Full Moon

Posted On: September 22, 2018

Full Moons are a culmination of lunar energy. It's also the height of completion from intentions and seeds cultivated during a New Moon. During a full moon, it's a time to start reaping the seeds that were sowed on a new moon or in general, obtaining the fullness of a desired manifestation. At the same time, the Full Moon's culmination of lunar energy can be viewed as a giant ball of fire, to release and burn away at impurities and what is no longer serving you for your highest and greatest good.

Aries' element is fire. During this Aries Full Moon, what needs to be burned? And also, how can you refine yourself in the midst of that fire?

Employing Aries' element of fire to awaken and rekindle the fire of passion within you. As well as, implementing Aries element of fire to harness and generate a fiery disposition from within you in assisting with being: assertive, ambitious, independent, energetic; and etc. Which are some of Aries' traits.

Mars is the ruling planet of Aries astrologically and its cosmic energies focal points are: desire, energy, drive, assertiveness, determination, action and movements, survival, aggressiveness; and etc. Mars' cosmic energies aligns with the traits of Aries.

The recent New Moon in Virgo on September 9th was all about setting intentions towards a new beginning and Virgo season was about decluttering, and making space for that new beginning.


With the crowning (culmination) of Aries Full Moon in alignment with Aries' traits and Mars' cosmic energies, it's time to grow in some horns. Energetic horns pertaining to: energy itself, determination, desire, ambitions, being assertive with what you want and need, your survival instincts, action and movements; and etc. Applying those energetic horns towards the intentions and seeds that were sowed during this past Virgo's New Moon for a new beginning. Utilizing these energetic horns in manifesting this new beginning.

Whatever that new beginning is for you. Also, to burn away any remnants of energies that is no longer serving you for your highest and greatest good, towards this new beginning. The cresting (culmination) of Aries Full Moon is a Harvest Moon, a time for reaping and gathering up your blessings. Or yielding and getting yourself in position to harvest those blessings.

Full Moons and New Moons are portals with powerful and strong lunar energies. New Moons are portals of sowing, intention settings, portals of new beginnings or portals of a new cycle. Full Moons are portals to harvest, retrieve, portals of completion or the end of a cycle. Full Moons are also, portals of releasing, the completion, finale of its lunar energies are a giant ball of fire to incinerate and cremate whatever energies are being released.

The Aries, Harvest Full Moon is on Monday, September 24, 2018.

May it be a bless one!

A time of introspection. This is not time to be fearful but to harness cosmic energies to benefit and serve you. Venus Retrograde in Scorpio is not the end of the world but a time of rebirth.

Venus goes into retrograde on October 5, 2018, 3:07 PM, at 10° Scorpio.

Venus is a Goddess that oversees: love, harmony, beauty, relationships, creativity, sex; and etc.

Eight years ago, Venus was retrograding, with this Venus Retrograde one can reflect on where they were at that time. What was your life like when it comes to: love with self, others and love as a whole, harmony with self and others, beauty based on how you see your self, relationships with self, significant other, family, friends; and others, creativity based on your gifts, skills and etc. Reflecting on that, what progress have been made?

And with this Venus Retrograde also, this a time to do some soul searching. Introspect in matters of the heart concerning love, harmony, relationships, your innate abilities and skills, confidence in oneself; and etc.

Scorpio’s traits are: passion, intuitive, intensity, rules over sex, heart chakra centered sign because Scorpios feel on a deep level, just like their symbol of the scorpion, Scorpios like to unearth things, they’re mysterious, secretive, their element is water; and etc.

With Venus Retrograde in Scorpio and based on Scorpio’s trait, introspection and reflection can be applied about passion like what are your passions and what are you passionate about, introspection about your intuition and how intuitive are you,
