Happy, happy glorious Magickal, Magnificent, Marvelous, Mellow, Manifesting, Miraculous, Mischievous Monday!. How are you delicious lovely? How is your month going so far? How has it been working with Truth, Choice and Action? Before we dive into that I will say there is so much to share this week with Elements, Double Full Moon in Libra, Easter and Earth Day. So grab a cuppa, this might be a longer post!
Okay, if you have been feeling a tad in a funk, or just “grrrrrrrrr”. Keep in mind we had the New Moon in Aries on the 5th of this month and Aries is Fire baby, fire to ignite the dreams, desires and a bunsen burner under your passions. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac so now we start a whole new solar cycle as well as the energy of fire that accompanies Aries, thus destruction and creation.
Aries is a very initiatory energy which invites us to plant seeds pertaining to one idea and nurture it with fire (passion) to bring it into our future. Think about it, there are places in the woods, in the desert scape where when a wildfire happens and there is that intense, intense heat that seems to destroy everything, afterwards there are plants and flowers that haven’t been seen for years upon years. Why? Is it magic? Did random birds drop these seeds after the fire? No, it’s because these seeds lay dormant and needed the fire to get them to germinate and to grow. So remember to give those glorious seeds you planted at New Moon some chutzpah and passion (no this isn’t another thing to add to your to-do list, it’s intention and celebration!)
So let me ask what Elements do you most relate to? If you are unsure of what I am talking about, think about Air, Fire, Water, Earth. Which element do you really resonate with? Now, if someone had asked me that 10 years ago I would have said “ALL OF THEM”! I love when a wind picks up and I open my window to let it howl through. I love sitting around a fire with friends and family, sharing stories, music and just watching the flames. I love playing with Water! (If you ever come visit in the summer you may be splatted with a water gun as you walk up the path!) To walk amongst the trees, play in the garden put my hands and feet in the dirt is stupendous for me. All of these are good, but they are short and sporadic, what if the element is the whole season? For example, the element for Spring is Air, wind, rainstorms, big gusts, lightness, communication, growth and her direction is the East (also smudge). Summer is Fire, passion, wildfires, smoky skies etc. Her direction is South. Do you see where I am going? (If you have never listened to Vivaldi’s 4 Seasons I highly recommend it. Spring is all string instruments and is light, delightful and challenging.)
I asked this question of a client last week and she responded with her Sun sign, Moon sign, Saturn etc. Nope! I don’t want the labels, I want to know where makes you feel replenished over, over and over again. For example I have huge Fire and some Air in most every label you can name. For me, Water and Earth balance me out, when it gets too hot or the wind is too strong, that doesn’t make me feel fantabulous, yet walking in the woods, being by the ocean daily is like nectar to me. So what element(s) do you resonate with? I know my 6 month old puppy is most certainly Air and Earth. A wind picks up she goes bat shit crazy and dances and plays. Put her in the woods and she frolics like a faery on acid! Try and put her in Water it is a “Hell no” (even walking by the ocean every day) and if she gets too hot, or the fire that is burning is too loud – another – ummm, fuck no!
So let me ask again “What Elements resonate for you and how do you tap into them to nourish you?”
Okay, on Easter Good Friday we have the Full Moon in Libra, aka the Pink Moon! (That title makes me giggle.) The Full Pink Moon won’t actually be turning the perfect shade of millennial pink. BUT this moon means that spring is officially here and flowers are beginning to bloom. In fact, this moon’s name comes from the Herb moss pink phlox, or “wild ground” phlox, which is unsurprisingly a beautiful pink flower that blooms this time of year. This is also the second Full Moon in Libra in a row (we had one in April). The main theme are the patterns or cycles in relationships, which merit a conclusion.
It should be noted that the term relationships, seen from the perspective of modern astrology and Libra’s optics, involves both the treatment you give yourself and the feelings you cultivate in the interaction with others (partner, partners, family, friends). So if you have energy about yourself, or any relationship (whether work, family, friends, Uncle Tom Cobbly), what a perfect time to release it! Yes? (If you don’t have an Uncle Tom Cobbly don’t fret, lol).
Easter is quickly approaching and how are you going to celebrate? Time outside, visit with family, a large dinner, an egg hunt or just relaxing and watching it all happen? In normally create an egg hunt that is at least 2 km long, but for the first time in forever, I don’t have small people here to do that with. Hmmm, I think I shall have to create one for my neighbours and friends! Okay, a couple of jokes for you for Easter!
What do you get when you pour hot water down a rabbit hole? Hot cross bunnies!
Why did the Easter bunny cross the road? Because the chicken had its Easter eggs!
Hey, nowhere in this did I say they were good jokes lolol!
Then, last but not least we have Earth Day on Easter Monday (the 22nd). So my invitation to you is to get the heck outdoors with family or solo, all good. And go play in nature. Put your feet flat on the Earth, breath in the Air, celebrate the dew or snow (Water) and if you are somewhere warm and there are red flowers (Fire), celebrate it all. We live on a glorious, amazing Earth that nurtures and supports us, take a moment to let Mother Earth know you appreciate her and her bounty. Look up at the Sky and watch the clouds go by (even just for a moment).
Okay, I have chuntered on a shed ton. (I did tell you it might be a long post, hence why things are changing). When I went to the cards and asked who wanted to support, inspire and guide this glorious week I was quite intrigued to see that the Earth Warriors Oracle were adamant. The reason I was intrigued is this deck doesn’t tend to often come out for public readings, but hey, I just go with what I am told! Lol.
Now if you haven’t met these gorgeous guides before, please let me introduce you:- There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water. And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. The time for the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word “struggle” from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”
The crystals that most certainly were clear about coming are:- Fire Agate – Historically, Fire Agate was used in alchemy because it was believed to contain the essence of fire. In many traditions sacred to fire deities, it encouraged timid adults and shy children to speak up and not be ignored or bullied. It is a stone of integrity, encouraging high standards of behavior in self and others, and promotes passion in love and in life. Merlinite – is known to be a stone of duality. It speaks about light and dark, and the black and white. It’s a seemingly simple stone that can attract good luck and powerful magic into your life. It’s a stone that will invite you to discover the deeper and darker parts of your being. Rhodochrosite – Wherever you happen to be on your spiritual journey, whether it’s crying on the bathroom floor at the heartbreak hotel or floating on clouds sprinkled with fairy dust, the Rhodochrosite crystal brings the most healing medicine of all – unconditional love. And of course Selenite to amplify!
The delicious flowers that chose to join in are cherry blossoms and a delicious bluebell (they most certainly went in water afterwards).
Ready? Settle yourself. See in your mind’s eye the Element that calls to you. Just breathe in the place that nourishes you and makes you feel whole and clear. Whether it’s the woods, the water, paragliding, the heat and the furnace. Just breathe it in and let your shoulders drop and nestle along your spine. Then when you are ready pick the card or cards that resonate for you.
Did you remember to pick?
Okay, let’s go look, yes?
Ch’aska, Star of Venus, supports an inner shift to higher consciousness. Whether or not you consider yourself to be financially skillful, part of your sacred power and purpose includes the healing of economic and financial matters in your own life and the world. You are meant to experience abundance, creating and sharing prosperity from a place of inner spiritual security. A healing liberation from poverty consciousness allows the Universe to work through you more easily without the obstruction of negative conditioning.
You are being guide to give up false shame of not having enough, or guilt for having too much. Your true worth is a matter of soul and has nothing to do with material things. As you relax and acknowledge the love that the Universe has for you, your material reality will unfold with grace and divine support.
Financial healing is indicated. Let go of fear and trust unconditionally that the Universe is supporting you. What brings you a sense of joy, purpose and passionate devotion? Focus on that. Believe in your ability to thrive by being and expressing your authentic self. Notice how you relax into flow and more easily attract what you need when you acknowledge that the Universe wants you to flourish through being you. Focus on putting your beautiful beliefs out into the world, not in consuming the negativity or fear of others. Give of your spirit abundantly!
WHITE BUFFALO WOMAN
Have hope, for you are pure of heart, and White Buffalo Woman appears as the divine sign of rebirth and harmony. She is the way shower who lives as one with Great Spirit. She teaches the practices that will free and empower us all. She heralds the birth of the divine upon a new Earth. You are held in her heart, and you will recognise her beautiful grace of spirit in your own.
In the Native American tradition, the Sioux Mother, White Buffalo Woman, is a symbol of rebirth and spiritual promise. For those of us attempting to awaken higher values in closed hearts that are unwilling to shift from more self-serving ways, White Buffalo Woman brings a message of divine justice. This is not about revenge or a mean-spirited definition of karma and people getting what they deserve, for if one is disconnected enough from the heart to be self-serving, then one is already in a living hell. The divine justice that White Buffalo Woman heralds is the restorative and correcting power of Great Spirit that will always find a way. If Great Spirit needs to use an unlikely candidate to do that, then it will. The Divine is not limited to what we think is going to work. It is powerful in ways that are beyond human comprehension. It is able to enact divine law and elicit restoration even when we wonder if it’s all falling apart before our eyes.
This doesn’t mean that we give up our fight, but, rather, that we are renewed with optimism and enthusiasm to embrace our journey with the greatest ally working alongside us. We find comfort knowing that Great Spirit is with us, not doing for us, but neither turning away from us in our need. We feel a more peaceful trust in the ultimate success of our purpose, for, no matter how many twists and turns the path takes, behind and in front of every unexpected obstacle, Great Spirit is present.
You are Kaitaki, guardian of the Divine Feminine. Your relationship with Mother Earth, Papatuanuku, is sacred, empowering and healing. You are destined to become more spiritually intimate with her, sharing in her creative potency and wisdom. Lean into her and trust in her support, even as you serve her by courageously voicing truth. She is your great ally, friend and healer, and as you dedicate yourself to her, she dedicates herself to you.
Make peace and let go of past issues around being abandoned or not understood or of feeling unsupported, as those experiences need no longer colour your worldview. Trust that you belong here, and that your connection to the Earth Goddess will support you in all ways. You are sensitive, and rightly so. Never judge your sensitivity or feel that you are overreacting – but also allow nature to calm and soothe you, so that you can be focused on accomplishing your soul mission.
If you feel that you are on your own, when you would like some help, allow the Divine Mother to be your friend and guide, whilst trusting that at the right moment, more allies will arrive. The Earth Mother has her own sense of timing, and you are not forgotten. You are just growing according to her wisdom and grace. Have faith in yourself and in her!
Happy Elements. Happy Full Moon. Happy, Hippity Hoppity Easter!

And when things get a tad tweaky – fucking breathe! Huge hugs and squeezes! See you in two weeks.
