Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of July 2, 2017

The crystals I am working with for the week are Blue Apatite, Star Ruby and Aqua Aura Quartz. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Blue Apatite – Stimulates thoughts and ideas. It is used to increase intellect, imagination, and intuitive/psychic awareness. Helps you maintain focus, learn, concentrate effectively, think clearly, and communicate better. It can clear the aura, enable spiritual attunement, and bring powerful psychic awareness. Increases creativity and imagination. Having apatite near you or wearing it can bring harmony on all levels, and bring inner peace. This occurs because it helps release old feelings. Apatite is reputed to physically assist with nail problems, allergies, arthritis, bones, eyesight, glandular problems, muscles, nervous system, weight loss. 


Star Ruby – Ruby in general stimulates circulation and amplifies energy. Increases vitality, overcoming exhaustion. Ruby is a stone that deepens a couple’s relationship and encourages closeness and commitment. It is a stone of courtly love and may honour admiration from a distance. Ruby increases passion. It can also ease physical ailments related to pregnancy and menstrual pain. Ruby helps banish nightmares. It promotes a clear mind, increased concentration and motivation, and brings self-confidence. It propels one toward prosperity and achievement. Ruby encourages you to enjoy the simple pleasures of being in the physical world. It increases desire and sexual energy. Star Ruby has the same metaphysical properties as Ruby, but with increased healing and magical energy. The Light of the Soul is reflected and grounded within the star of the Ruby. It is extremely helpful for those inclined to self-harm or self-neglect, and is quite beneficial in overcoming sexual dysfunction or the trauma of sexual or power abuse and suppressed anger. As a stone of spiritual Light, it can be used by Light workers and healers to integrate high-frequency energy into the body. It assists one in recognizing the true abundance of life. 


Aqua Aura Quartz – Enhances communications of all kinds. This also assists with growing and using self-expression in a calm and loving manner. Aqua Aura is called both a success stone and an abundance stone. Helps enhance psychic abilities. Aqua Aura is said to assist in conscious awareness of one’s own motivations and patterns. Aqua Aura is used by crystal healers and others to calm the emotions and the emotional body. It is a powerful stress reliever. It is also a strong energy for reducing or eliminating anger. Physically Aqua Aura is reputed to help with throat problems, stress-related physical or mental illness, depression and anxiety disorders, thymus bland, vertigo, immune system disorders. 

We have been stressed out and exhausted lately. 😕 I know, I’ve been feeling it too. We have been lacking energy, feeling tired, and maybe depressed. We have been letting life pass us by just trying to keep up with the regular stuff. I know… I’m guilty! This week FINALLY looks like a turn around point! We are going to become more in-tune and spiritually aware. We are going to release our angers, fears, frustrations, and past traumas in healthy ways. Expressing yourself creatively can really help process emotions. I feel like we are also subconsciously processing things, and this week will be one of letting go and moving forward, even if you aren’t consciously doing so. We are going to have more energy, ideas and clarity to pursue our goals in life. We are going to get our vitality back. It’s time to have some fun, and enjoy the simple pleasures of life!! Having fun is a perfect way to let the shit go! And hey, it’s summer! So why not get out there and do something that’s fun, that you enjoy, that reminds you of how awesome life can be. We are going to see how amazingly abundant our world is this week! Let’s see what the cards say for this week! 


These cards are just so beautiful… as always! But seriously though ❤️ For what we’ve been going through, this is exactly what we need to be reminded of. We have the power to shape our destiny. So much more of it needs to be shaped from our heart and soul, and less of it from the mind. When you get wrapped up in the thoughts in your mind, this is when anxiety takes over. Depression, nervous system issues, immune system disorders, stomach ailments, you name it! We need to ground our awareness back to our heart, and even deeper into the soul. We need to operate from there. The place where you were safe as a child, when you knew you could do anything you wanted and didn’t worry about the details. The child that let fun, and their heart guide their pursuits and goals. The child that didn’t care what they looked like or what they had, only how they felt. This card also says that we can’t live in a dream world either. If you are too spaced out and not conscious in each moment, you miss out on life. If your too focused on responsibilities then your life will be out of balance too. You just have to find a better level where you feel happy and grounded. We have a lot of work to do, but make sure you incorporate passion and fun into your life, and care for the child within you. Ground yourself by looking at the picture of the Star Ruby, and feeling yourself be grounded to the Earth through its beautiful energy. The anxiety, depression, low energy, etc. that we have been dealing with is a result of us stressing over the past. Let the past go. It’s what you have to do to lighten your load. You HAVE to. Feel the fire igniting within you, and the smoke releasing everything that ever weighed you down. Do it however you want to. It can be as easy as saying to yourself, “I’m letting this go.” It doesn’t have to be complicated. It doesn’t even have to be something specific, you might not even be aware of what’s really bothering you. Just let it all go. It is not helping you or serving you to hold on. It’s basically just forgiving yourself and anyone else, and choosing to let it go. Making a more conscious choice to live a more positive life. Now…. What DO you want? What does a happy life look and feel like to you? You have the opportunity to achieve and attract your heart’s true desires. Clearly decide what you want. Try writing it down, that helps bring it into the physical reality. Most importantly, know that you are truly deserving of everything you desire. Love yourself. Feel the fire and passion of the ruby, and heat up your life with self-love, desire, creativity, love for others, joy and happiness. Success, achievement and abundance are a result of our positive actions in life! 


Ground Yourself – This card is a signal that your energy and attention need to be grounded. If you’ve been feeling spacey, confused or forgetful, this card speaks to the reason. “Ungroundedness” means that your attention is directed too high – as if you’re not in your body. A balance is needed between a focus on Spirit and a focus on Earth. You can ground yourself by walking barefoot on grass or soil, by eating foods from the ground like potatoes or carrots, by rubbing your bare feet, by touching a tree or plant, or by visualizing roots coming from the bottom of your feet into the Earth. Grounding will help you better concentrate and focus, and will also increase your connection to the Angels. Additional meanings for this card: Spend time gardening; Work with flower essences; Adjust your diet and other lifestyle habits so that they support your mental and physical awareness; Make sure the words you speak or write are practical, grounded and understandable; Be down-to-Earth and authentic in your relationships; Send love and light to Mother Earth.


Let Your Past Go – You received this card because your thoughts and feelings about the past are holding you back. You’re repeating a pattern because of unfinished emotions from your past. This card is a sign to forgive and move on, to stop painful patterns. It doesn’t mean that you need to be with the person you’ve forgiven. It simply means that you’ve let toxic feelings go in exchange for peace. Additional meanings for this card: Approach a new situation or person with positive expectations; Avoid routines; Speak to a councillor or support group; Forgive those who’ve hurt you; Forgive yourself; The worst is now behind you; Keep your thoughts about this situation high and bright. 


What Do You Desire – This card comes to you because you’ve been waiting for external signs of what you should do next. The Angels say the answer comes from inside of you. You must decide what you want before anything can change. Carve out time to meditate upon your true heart’s desires, and know that you deserve the best, as we all do. Additional meanings for this card: Use affirmations and positive visualizations to manifest your desire; Clarify your desires; Release any guilt or fear regarding asking for what you want.

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of March 19, 2017

The crystals I am working with for the week are Specularite, Amethyst and Black Tourmaline. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Specularite – Dissolves negativity in all forms. Balances the meridians and yin yang energies. Assists mental functioning, memory and development. Calms the mind and instills deep inner peace. Boosts confidence and self worth. Helpful for past life recall and connection to the energy of the soul, Angelic realm and otherworld communication.


Amethyst – A meditative and calming stone which promotes calm, balance, and peace. It is used to eliminate impatience. Beneficial for legal problems and money issues. Increases spirituality and enhances intuition and psychic powers of all kinds. It is used to open one’s channels to telepathy, past life regression, clairaudience, clairvoyance, and communication with Angels. A stone of protection. Promotes peacefulness, happiness, and contentment. Brings emotional stability, inner strength and helps to enhance flexibility and cooperation. To be flexible at need is a sure sign of strength. A well known sobriety stone. It is used to assist in getting rid of addictions to alcohol, drugs, smoking and destructive compulsive behaviours of all kinds.


Black Tourmaline – A protective stone which removes and repels negative energies. Cleanses, purifies, and transforms dense energy into a lighter vibration. It is great for grounding. It balances, harmonizes, and protects all of the Chakras. Removes fear and boosts self-confidence. Very calming. Those who face challenges from negativity, frequent worrying or OCD can work with Black Tourmaline to help heal these issues. Carry a piece of Black Tourmaline in your pocket to increase physical vitality throughout your day.

We are still very much in need of protection. There are some negative energies either around us, or within us. This may be you or someone else in your life that may be dealing with negative energy in the form of addictions, legal issues, frequent worrying or compulsive disorders. If you find yourself dealing with these types of issues, please do an energy cleansing, cord cutting and shielding of your chakras. (Google some YouTube videos if you need assistance) If this pertains to someone in your life, please still do those things, and do them for that person too (using visualization). This negative energy needs to be transmuted into positivity, into confidence and self-love. Most, if not all, self-destructive behaviours really stem from a lack of self-love. When you don’t love yourself, you don’t honour your body, your mind, or your soul. You allow the negative energy to weigh you down and affect your life in negative ways, such as legal issues, money troubles or addictive behaviours. Only when you have the courage and love for yourself, can you truly know you deserve the best in life. When you believe you deserve the best in life, you get the best out of life. It’s all about the law of attraction, about how we feel, and how much we love. We are creating our lives everyday, and without love and positivity in your life, negativity is bound to breed. It’s not always going to be easy. There is going to be times where you need to dig deep, to hold on to your strength in times where you would give in. The crystals tell me that these issues could stem from many past lifetimes of experiences, so they could be deeply engrained. Don’t be so hard on yourself, just make the decision to move towards healing, and to love yourself. The crystals, Angels and Elemental Spirits are here today to help us cleanse and transmute this negative energy. They are here to calm us, and help us find some emotional flexibility. They will help boost our self-confidence and happiness. They are going to help us move towards the harmony that we seek. Let’s see which cards the Fairies have for us this week.

The Princess of Autumn is our little shove to get our crap together. Get those plans in order, get your emotions in order, get your health in order, get your life in order. You will have wonderful prospects with respect to your career or education, and they will play out perfectly if you can pull up your socks and get it together. You can do this!! And the time IS now. If you keep procrastinating and saying tomorrow, next week, next year, you will just keep doing that and getting nowhere. Make the changes you need to now, and then things will improve! Be fearless and choose happiness. Face those swords like we talked about last week and handle it like a boss. Pursue your dreams, because amazing career opportunities are in the cards. Take back your power and make decisions that empower your life. Be responsible and make good decisions. If you make positive choices in your life, you will be rewarded with abundance. If you over analyze, you just waste time and stay stuck. Do what’s in your heart, that you know is right, and get moving. You are more than capable, and it’s going to benefit you! After you are out of the darkness that you have been hiding in, you will emerge to beautiful gardens teaming with life and beauty, and you will find the power to harness rainbows in your life. Anyone can bounce back from where they have been. Take the hard times and use them as lessons to move forward. The rainbow on this last card is proof that there is beauty and rewards waiting for you, if you can walk yourself out of this storm, and choose a new direction. The crystals will be sending their healing energy to help you find your inner strength.


Princess of Autumn – “You can never know too much!” – or so says our Princess of Autumn. This optimistic and happy young lady simply loves to learn. She’s charming and reliable, upbeat, and so very clever. She does have a bit of a mischievous streak running through her, so you may want to keep an eye out for that! Besides being an absolute joy to be around, she’s also responsible and wise beyond her years. Did we mention that she loves to learn? This gal can be the perpetual student, taking longer than usual to get out into the “real world”. She may also think things through way too long before acting. But when she does move into action, everything will go perfectly! The Ace of Autumn has grown up, and the books that were closed to her before are now open! The knowledge she has gained has provided the abundance accumulating on the desk. Addition meanings of this card: Time to go back to school. Study and research. Seminars or courses. Good news about finances. Needing a push to get started. Working your way up the ladder. 


Ace of Spring – The time to act is now! The fairy of Spring presents you with a wonderful new opportunity that will allow you to achieve what you desire. Your fledgling hopes are now about to take flight, and all that’s needed from you is the courage to see things through. Be daring, be fearless, and then happily pursue your most treasured dreams! If you don’t have every little detail worked out, don’t let that hold you back. All the steps will reveal themselves as you move forward. The youthful fairy in this card is tending to the young Hawthorne tree, which sprang from the Staff of Joseph of Arimathea. The sapling is sparkling with Divine Love, to indicate that your new plans will be fruitful and abundant. Additional meanings of this card: New beginnings. Career changes. Birth announcements. Promotions. 


Seven of Summer – There are pros and cons to virtually every decision. The situation you’re currently in is demanding a choice from you, and procrastination is simply no longer an option. What you decide involves actions that may benefit you physically, emotionally, financially, intellectually or spiritually. Recognizing that you always have a choice is a great realization about your personal power. However, it also means that YOU are responsible for the outcome of your choices. The moment to choose has arrived! You could make a list of every possible alternative and evaluate it, or your could ask God and your Angels for guidance. But the time to choose is now. Daydreaming can be a lovely way to get insight into a challenging situation… or it can be a way to avoid taking action. Make sure that your imaginings serve a productive and positive purpose. Make a plan to put your dreams into action, one step at a time. A fairy allows sunlight to shine through a prism, onto a bed of white roses. The roses indicate that his intentions are pure, but the prism shows that there are many possibilities. Additional meanings of this card: Needing to regain focus. Overanalyzing. Too many choices. Receiving guidance to detox.

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of February 26, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Bloodstone, Aquamarine and Tree Jasper. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Bloodstone – Used to centre and ground. Helps to stay calm. Increases adaptability and organization. Heals stress and anxiety. A stone of courage. Releases blockages. Heals emotional traumas and grief. Enhances the intellect. It is used to bring energy in many ways, including bringing abundance, success and prosperity.


Aquamarine – A stone of courage and fortitude that can bring great power. Assists with quick intellectual response. It brings inner peace, hope and self-love. Shields the aura, and bring Angels for their guidance and protection. An excellent crystal for meditation. Dispels anger and fear. Assists with calming communication issues. A wonderful good luck stone. 


Tree Jasper – Known as the “supreme nurturer”. It holds and supports during times of stress, bringing a sense of completeness and tranquillity. It is used to help with dream recall and shamanic journeying. It is a stone of protection and absorbs all types of negative energies. It balances and aligns the physical, mental and emotional bodies. A stone of strength, courage and determination. Stimulates creativity and imagination, encouraging ideas into action. Helps with focus, organization abilities, and motivation. 

The first thing I noticed about the crystals is that they represent Earth, Water and Blood. Very elemental energy, very symbiotic. Times may be stressful, but what’s called for now is courage and calm. It can be easy to be wrapped up in all that is going wrong, but the crystals not only are here to help us with solutions, they are also reminding us of the positive energy that comes on the other end. The abundance, the success, the luck, the power, the peace, the tranquility, the prosperity… it’s all there and it’s coming. It’s all symbiotic. Life is symbiotic. There has to be bad with the good, that’s just how it is. Get creative with solutions. Get organized. Being organized can relieve stress and anxiety. Find ways to be calm. Be adaptable. Most of all, have courage and keep moving forward in the most balanced way you possibly can. The crystals are sending you healing. You can and you will get through this period of stress, and before you know it, things are going to be be ridiculously amazing. Let’s see which cards get drawn for this week. 


The cards are just perfect. It looks like we are going through some changes in our life, maybe work related. You may be stressed out, overwhelmed or feeling like you are unsure of yourself. Just keep working and practicing. Practice makes perfect and that’s how you master a skill. You are on this path that leads to an abundant future, so don’t let the fear and stress overcome you now. Do not give up. Have courage and push through, keep practicing. Definitely Yes is a sign of everything positive that is coming in the future. It’s that confirmation that Yes, this is worth working towards and it will pay off! Believe in yourself. You are more than worthy, you are as talented as anyone else on this planet, and you can do this. Think as positively as possible! It can only help. Stressing out causes serious physical effects, and drains your energy. When you feel the stress coming on, allow yourself to feel it. It’s not going to magically go away. Just don’t allow it to bring you down. Be adaptable. When you say to yourself, “Oh my gosh, I’m feeling so stressed out and overwhelmed…” recognize that thought. Do something to care for it and turn it around. Take a time out and watch some funny videos, listen to a meditation, have a bath, get a reiki or energy healing treatment, dance, sing… do something to turn your mindset around. Gratitude exercises work well to remind yourself all you have to be thankful for. Think positive and act positive. You will get over it so much faster! The more you do it, the more it becomes a habit. Soon you will quickly notice whenever something isn’t positive! Good things are coming, positivity is the lesson and it is key here! We don’t have to be perfect by any means, there always has to be the symbiotic positive and negative. There are always times that are going to be hard. Just don’t stay there. Have courage and get back up again. Practice some more. Choose to see the beauty. Take good loving care of yourself. You truly are worth it, and wonderful things are to come if you can have courage. Practice is one way to make your dreams come true! 

Practice – Do you want to know why some people are really good at sports, music or art? They practice these skills a lot! This card is a sign that you need to practice a skill that’s important to you so that you can be really good at it. As you practice, some days you’ll feel stronger than others, yet you’ll notice that your skills improve the more you use them. So have patience with yourself and your teachers. It may take time to learn how to do something in the best way. Practice really is the best way to improve your skills. As you practice, you’ll learn new ways and methods. You’ll also enjoy yourself more as you get better and better at your new skills. So whether your dream is to paint, write, dance, sing or do crafts, practice is one way to make your dreams come true. 

Definitely Yes – What you’re asking about will definitely happen, provided that you keep your thoughts positive. You can bring about your own desires more quickly by paying attention to thoughts, feelings, words, or visions that repeat themselves to you. When this inner guidance asks you to take positive action, it’s important for you to do so. For instance, if you have a strong feeling to call a certain person, then make that call. Your Angels will always guide you to take actions that have positive and healthy effects on you and others. This card asks you to set aside doubts or worries, and to feel secure that everything is positive. Your desires are going to happen, and probably in better-than-expected ways. Imagine that your dream has already come true, using your inner vision and your feelings as you do so. You just need to stay filled with faith and hope, and take action when your guided. 

Believe in Yourself – This card asks you to hold positive thoughts and feelings about yourself. If there’s something you need or want, then hold a vision of yourself doing well. Only think positive thoughts about yourself, such as “I can do it” and “I am good at this”. The more you believe in yourself, the better everything will go. If you expect success, you’ll have good results. But if you worry about failing, you won’t enjoy your experiences. You can enjoy life more if you believe in yourself. If someone else tells you that you won’t succeed, then picture a big “X” through their words to cancel them. Don’t let someone else’s words take away your belief! Instead, act in a way that makes them change their mind and see what you can really do. Belief means making a decision such as “Yes I can do this!” When you clearly decide to do it, instead of just trying, you approach the situation with confidence. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing something new. What matters is that you believe that you can do it. Each time you do something new, you learn and grow. And you’ll thank yourself for learning that you can do anything you truly believe you can do.

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of January 15, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Angel Aura Quartz, Rose Quartz, Clear Quartz and Rhodochrosite. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Angel Aura Quartz – A stone of high spiritual energy. It is said that it is very helpful to the aura which it can protect, balance, and bring energetic health. It is said to help with Angelic communication and communicating with Higher Self and inner wisdom. It is used to help access Akashic records and past life recall. It is said to bring peace and tranquility because of the angelic protection it brings. Physically, it is helpful for general health, vitality, and miraculous cure of illness. 


Rose Quartz – Often called the “Love Stone.” A stone of unconditional love that opens the heart chakra. Enhances every type of love: self-love, family, platonic, romantic, and unconditional. Bringing love in to life and daily situations not only brings inner warmth, but it also lowers stress and soothes those around it. Rose Quartz also inspires the love of beauty, in oneself and others, in nature, and especially that which stimulates the imagination – art, music and the written word. Rose quartz is a very happy stone. Rose quartz is used to raise self-esteem and gives a strong sense of self-worth. Its loving energies teach us to apply this love to ourselves and thereby find ourselves more worthy. It is used to balance emotions and bring peace and calm. This calm emotional balance brings stress relief and easing of anxiety. All these things carry energies of forgiveness, tolerance, and compassion, enabling us to see the good in both ourselves and others. Physically, Rose Quartz is a beautification stone. It is helpful to clear the skin, reduce wrinkles and promote a soft complexion. Rose Quartz stimulates the proper functioning of the heart and circulatory system. It aids in relieving tension and stress. It is especially supportive of the female reproductive system. It assists in alleviating sexual difficulties, post-partum depression, and is thought to help mothers heal after complicated births. 


Clear Quartz – A power stone. It has been called the “Universal Crystal” because of its many uses. It enhances energy by absorbing, storing, amplifying, balancing, focusing and transmitting. It channels universal energy. Quartz also enhances thoughts, as they are a form of energy. Because it directs and amplifies energy, it is extremely beneficial for manifesting, healing, meditation, protection, and channeling. Due to its ability to balance, quartz is excellent for harmonizing and balancing one’s environment. Quartz is also good for energizing other crystals. Quartz is a stone of clarity which dispels negativity and clears away negative energy. Quartz enhances spiritual growth, spirituality and wisdom. It can also help particularly with concentration, studying, and retaining what one learns. Physically, it protects from negative energy. It is a very good stone for astral travel, manifestation, scrying, channeling, dream recall and dream work. Quartz is a Master Healer stone. It is an excellent all purpose crystal healer stone. It is said to amplify healing energy and is used to perform diagnostic healing. It is said to draw out pain. Quartz is used in crystal healing to strengthen all body systems. Quartz is reputed to be particularly effective for chronic fatigue, arthritis, bone injuries, depression, diabetes, fibromyalgia, intestinal troubles. 


Rhodochrosite – Rhodochrosite is a self-confidence booster. It brings a sense of realistic balance to life. It is also used to help cope with problems in life in a graceful, balanced manner without avoidance or denial. Eases issues caused by past lives. It is used to elevate the mind to a higher plane in meditation and energy work. Rhodochrosite balances and enhances love on all levels. It is also said to be a stone of freedom because of this helping to balance inner conflicts. This can bring a deep sense of happiness and relief from ongoing stress. Physically, it has been considered good for the digestion, the heart, the kidneys, spleen, pancreas, the pulse rate, and the thyroid. It is also used for stress related illness by transforming the energy of the illness with a balanced love of self and the universe.  

The message I am getting from the crystals is one of balance and love. Balance is a quality of every single crystal. It seems like we are giving too much away, and we need to make ourselves more of a priority. We have talents and love to give to the universe, and we can’t do that if we are exhausting and stressing ourselves out daily doing everything for everyone else. I know as a mom, the days to fly by, and it’s easy to give up on the things we love. We need to find the balance in our life so that we can be happy. We need to find the time to express and nurture ourselves, because we have so much to give. We deserve to be happy. You are worthy of investing in yourself. You have beautiful talents and love to share with the world. Let’s see what the cards have to say for the week. 


The cards are telling me that things may have been tough lately. There have been some inner struggles surrounding self-worth. We may be reliving past hurts that affected us in ways we are still processing. I can be a people pleaser, and when the giving/receiving energy is out of balance, it can amplify feelings of resentment and stress. We can find the balance we seek by accepting and making peace with the past. Forgive yourself. Forgive everyone else too. What’s done is done and everyone makes mistakes. That’s how we learn and grow. Let it all go. Start forward on a new path of positivity and love. Accept yourself for the beautiful ever changing spiritual being you are. Step in to the person you want to be, and exude the energy you want to attract in your life. Step into your power and accept the love you deserve. Show yourself love and know you are worth it. Radiate love, and it will come back to you. You have so much wisdom to share, not only from past experiences that you have learned from, but from experiences you are going through presently or have yet to go through. Show yourself love so you can learn and show others the way. Show them the way to happiness. Show them the way to freedom. You are on your way, all you need is love. I am sending so much of it out to you today, and so are the crystals. The energy is amplified by the Clear Quartz crystal. Lots and lots of beautiful love. 💗💝💖💓


Acceptance – You are built to question everything as part of your mission of making healthful changes to this planet. However, this characteristic may cause you to reject a part of your life that’s necessary in order for you to get to the next step. This card is a message for you to search through your life and determine if there is anything (or anyone) you are rejecting. Accepting your life completely is the best thing you can do for yourself right now. While this may not be easy or even seem right, know that you simply cannot change everything you do not like, and certain things must be tolerated in this lifetime. Ask the Angels to bring you strength and comfort to make letting go and accepting easier. 


Apologize – This card asks you to take the high road in this situation and apologize to either the people involved or yourself for things that have been bothering you. Your honesty and fiery nature may inadvertently lead you to say things that might hurt others’ feelings. Saying that you’re sorry is one of the best ways to let the pressure off and defuse tension. Even if you perceive that you’ve done nothing wrong, the Angels ask you to apologize in general for any disappointment or frustration that arose. Be sure to have an honest discussion with yourself or the other person about the underlying feelings that led to the conflict. The Angels certainly don’t want you to cover up your true emotions! Know that while saying sorry may not be easy or even seem fair, in this situation it’s being asked of you because it serves a higher purpose. This is a lesson for you to put aside your pride and do something for the greater good. 


Share Your Wisdom – Within you is ancient and powerful wisdom about the true rules of right and wrong. You came to this planet to make big changes, and you’re not alone in this mission. As you learn more about the changes that should be made to society, this card guides you to share this awareness with like-minded others. The more people who know their true purpose (because people like you awaken them to it), the more effective this collective mission will be.

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of January 8, 2017

The crystals I am working with for the week are Dumortierite, Smoky Quartz and Lapis Lazuli. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Dumortierite – A stone of order. It is used to enhance self-discipline, organizational abilities, and general orderliness. It is an excellent stone for lifting depression. Due to its energy of self-discipline it is often used in weight loss or attaining ideal weight. 


Smoky Quartz – Is a very protective and grounding stone. It brings physical and psychic protection. It is also an excellent stone for protection from negative energy, as It removes negativity and negative energy of any kind and transforms it to positive energy. It is used in assisting making wishes come true by grounding their essence in reality. Thus, it is a stone that brings abundance, prosperity, and good luck. Engenders creativity. Assists in prioritizing needs and wants, and brings wisdom to every day life. Excellent for elevating moods, overcoming negative emotions, and relieving depression. Helpful for enhancing courage and inner strength. Smoky quartz is very comforting and calming. Helps to relieve grief. 


Lapis Lazuli – Creates a strong spiritual connection. Is a manifestation stone. It is also a powerful crystal for positive or white magic. Helps with dream work. Protects from psychic and physical attacks. A stone of communication that can bring truthfulness, openness, and mental clarity. It is said to enhance creativity. Its energy can help organize daily life as well as organizing and quieting a busy or restless mind. Helps to overcome abuse issues and trauma, as well as depression and grief. Partly this is due to its energy of bringing inner power and hope. This strong inner power can also build courage, confidence, and overcome shyness. Hope brings trust that things will work out in spite of past traumas. It also is used to decrease irritability, whether caused by trauma issues or day to day frustrations.

Sorry I have been on a bit of a hiatus again! With the Christmas season, my son’s cancer treatments, the awful chest cold we had for weeks, and everything else going on in my life, I just haven’t taken the time to sit down with my cards. I prefer to do my card readings when I’m alone, in peace and quiet, and that sure isn’t happening as often as I’d like! I can say all the stress in my life has been wearing me down, and I have been feeling a bit down and depressed lately! The crystals are definitely showing a pattern of stress and depression that they are here to help with. The crystals also show a pattern of protection, so there may be negative people or situations in our life that we require protection from. It also may be our own negativity we require protection from, like being too stressed and worrying all the time. Either way, the crystals are helping to protect our soul, and transmute negative energy into positive. You can tell it’s the new year, everyone is starting their diets and resolutions, and cleaning house. The crystals are enhancing self-discipline and orderliness in life. They are also here to assist you with your weight loss goals. The crystals want us to overcome shyness and have courage. Use your creativity as a means to express yourself, heal and relieve stress. I love to sleep with this particular Smoky Quartz by me, I have intensely vivid dreams, and seeing that the Lapis Lazuli is such a good stone for dreamwork, I will be making sure to have them with me for bedtime. I will be using a more traditional tarot deck I received for Christmas, so let’s see what the cards have to say for the week! 


All three of the cards I have pulled are major arcana cards, representing major lessons to be mastered in our lives, a turning point if you will. Just like the crystals, the Sun card is telling us to have confidence! Express yourself and don’t be sorry for who you are. You are beautiful and bright like the sun. Share that radiance and positivity. This will bring positive things into your life, like a promotion or success! The Tower represents people in your life that put on a pretty front. This could even represent you trying to put on a front. This is a time to be real, a time to be true to yourself. Some people appear to have it all together, but guess what? They don’t, just like you or I, and eventually things come crashing down. Not to hurt anyone, but to reveal the truth. The truth will always come to light. I have a feeling that these are the type of people you would be needing protection from. Don’t be upset if things don’t go your way, or you lose someone from your life. Have faith that what’s real will always prevail. I think this is a message for our inner selves too. We can stress ourselves out thinking we need to keep up to what everyone around us is doing. Eventually, it all falls apart and we need to acknowledge the realness of who we are and what it is that we need. Priorities right! There are only so many hours in a day. Use them to your best advantage. Try to compromise and see the viewpoints of others, but also try to keep a healthy balance of what you need as an individual. The Empress wants us to have courage and go after our goals. Have courage to see past your perceived faults, and know that you are worthy of all your dreams coming true. It is perfectly ok to not be perfect. All those resolutions and dreams you have for the year, get moving towards them. The crystals are assisting with creativity, organization and self-discipline to help you work on your goals. Make sure they are your own dreams though, and not just something you want to do because everyone else you know is doing it. If you follow the crowd and don’t stay true to yourself, things fall apart just like the Tower card. I feel like this is a week of setting the foundations for what is to come for this year, and for this next phase of our life. I read somewhere that the foundation we lay this year will determine the next ten years of our life, so make sure your doing all you can to move toward achieving your dreams and goals. 

The Sun – Any personal growth you achieve now will be linked to self-expression. Say what you feel when you feel it. Accept criticism and admit mistakes. Enthusiasm and self-assurance bring results. A promotion is on the horizon.

The Tower – Everyone wants to be admired. Others embellish the truth, but what’s necessary and real will prevail. Illusions will be shattered, enemies revealed. Don’t be upset if things don’t turn out as planned. Try to compromise and see others’ point of view.

The Empress – Express your ideas and take calculated risks. Getting what you want is your responsibility. Your passions are of primary importance to you now. News of a wedding, pregnancy, or children arrives.

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of December 18, 2016

The crystals I am working with for the week are Jet, Apache Tears, Blue Goldstone and Black Tourmaline. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Jet – Purifies and protects. Protects against sickness, negative energy and violence. Protects finances and business pursuits. Good for cleansing the aura. Has a calming energy and heals grief. Eases anxiety and depression, calming anxious or fearful thinking. Brings about inner growth, increase self-reliance, and ease change in any areas of life. Used to treat ailments ranging from epilepsy, migraines, colds, lymphatic problems, congestive heart failure, tumors, toothache, stomach pains, menstrual cramps, fertility of male and female, scrofula (lymphatic tuberculosis), clinical depression, manic-depression or bipolar disorder, liver, kidney, and glandular problems.  


Apache Tears – The Legend of the Apache Tear is this: One day a party of Apache Indians was ambushed by an enemy tribe. The Apaches fought bravely but were greatly outnumbered and driven to the top of a high bluff. Their arrows gone and unable to fight and unwilling to be taken captive, they leaped from the cliffs to their death. Their women were understandably grief-stricken and wept over the bodies. Their teardrops froze when they hit the ground to become the lovely stones we know today as Apache Tears. It is said that whomever owns one of these stones will never cry again, for the Apache women shed enough tears already. Apache Tears are said to relieve grief and sadness. They assist in giving and accepting forgiveness. They can help release negative emotions and balance one’s emotional state. They are good luck stones, said to bring good luck to anyone who has one. Apache Tears are a gently grounding stone. Apache Tears are reputed to alleviate muscle spasms and eliminate toxins from the body. 


Blue Goldstone – A good deflector of unwanted energies. Highly regarded as a protection mineral. It is a nervous system stimulant and enhances transmission of healing energies from the hands. Protects the psychic and empathic sensitivities. While this is technically a man-made piece, it does contain copper, which in itself is extremely helpful in the areas of inflammation and increasing ones blood flow.


Black Tourmaline – Grounding stone. A well known purifying stone that deflects and transforms negative energy. It can transform and remove negativity from an individual or an environment. It is often used as an aura cleanser, and can help one attain higher levels of awareness. Also used for repelling and protecting one from black magick, evil spirits, and is often said to return the negative spell to the sender. Deflects EMF radiation from tv’s, computers, etc.

You can tell by the crystals that we are moving into the Christmas season. A time when we need to be protected from energies around us. A time when we need to protect ourselves from negative energy. You may be experiencing anxiety or grief during this season, and these crystals are here to help you ease those emotions. We are also being reminded of purification, so be mindful of overindulging or doing things that are harmful to your mind, body, spirit. Let’s see what the cards have to tell us for the week. 


The cards tell us to have faith and trust this holiday season. Try to let go of worry and stress, and know everything will work out. Turn to your trusted friends and family to get support. Take time to rest and rejuvenate yourself. Give yourself love instead of feeding yourself worry. When you allow yourself rest and give yourself love, you can trust in the universe will provide all the resources you need. Relax and enjoy the holiday season! 

Camel – Sometimes it feels like your on a journey across a vast, lifeless desert that stretches beyond the horizon with no end in sight. Traipsing across the seemingly barren landscape before you, your thirst for comfort and solace during these times can most readily be satisfied by looking to your inner resources. All the experiences you’ve had in your life time, the challenges you’ve successfully faced, and the wealth of knowledge you’ve accumulated can be called on to not only cope with any type of adversity that presents itself, but to help you move forward with courage and determination. First, identify where you want to go and then proceed slowly, steadily, and deliberately toward that objective. As you move along, castaway your fears, doubts, and hesitations wherever they arise, letting the four winds lift them up to the sun to be burned away. Ease your mind and heart, and know that all is well and that you’re protected at all times. Call upon those helping spirit to have assisted you up until this point in your journey. You have what it takes, and you will get through this! Associations: Resourcefulness; Determination; Steadiness; Fortitude; Endurance; Stamina; Focus; Optimism; Containment; Centeredness; Adaptability; Equality; Justice; Strength; Survival; Replenishment; Positivity; Accomplishment

Meerkat – The people in your life would love to offer their support to you, your only job is to receive it and, indeed, sometimes even ask for it. Those whom you feel closest to and trust the most are the individuals you can rely on to be there for you, especially when you really need it. People who are dealing with dire illnesses and have the support of friends and family members usually fair the best, however, you certainly don’t need to experience such an extreme situation to take advantage of the love and care that others have to offer. Write down a list of names of people you trust the most, and then go back through it and identify three traits in each of these individuals that makes you trust them. When you’re finished, you’ll not only have a good idea of the qualities in those you rely on, but you’ll also have a clear notion of the characteristics that make a person trustworthy in your eyes. Sure, you’ve been burned or disappointed at one time or another when you trusted someone and were let down or betrayed. Everyone has experienced this. So now you may be afraid that if you let others in and count on them for support, something similar will happen. Those memories, consciously or subconsciously, will not only filter out any chance of being disappointed or hurt, it will also serve to keep others who are trustworthy at a distance. Look under that filter and listen to what your gut instinct tells you about a particular individual. How do they match up with the list of characteristics you find trustworthy? Take a chance and let yourself receive love and support. Associations: Family; Community; Group Support; Vigilance; Observation; Intelligence; Energy Conservation; Communication; Resilience; Protectiveness; Grooming; Playfulness 

Goose – The irony of this is that by restricting and conserving your energy, you can actually mobilize your internal resources for the next cycle of work and accomplish that much more. In this fast-paced world with all of its pressures that impinge upon you, it’s difficult to take regular periods of time off, yet it’s critical to your health and well-being to do so. Let this rest period be an opportunity when you do the things that help your body recover from the stresses and strains of your most recent activities. Sleep in, get a massage, spend some time playing with a friend, take a salt bath, get out of town and explore the woods, anything that will bring you peace of mind. At the conclusion of a long spell of continuous, stressful activity, even when it has been productive, many people don’t allow themselves a period of respite, and instead jump into another task right away without relaxing and enjoying the fruits of their labor. It’s most unnatural, but in a caffeinated society were technology has created instant access to phones, emails, and Internet, it’s easy to give away your power of choice by reacting to a false sense of immediacy and urgency to these trappings of civilization. Turn off your phone and computer, and enjoy the sunset. These periods of rest needn’t be lengthy, but you do need to implement them, especially right now. Associations: Perseverance; Migration; Levelheadedness; Loyalty; Family; Determination; Resourcefulness; Quest; Integrity; Purposeful; Imprinting; Compassion; Conservation

Daily Angel Card Reading – November 22, 2016

The crystals I am working with today are Blue Flame Aura Quartz, Tangerine Sun Aura Quartz and Star Ruby. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Blue Flame Aura Quartz (also known as Titanium Aura) – Has the ability to heal the human energy field. It enhances ones physical vitality and brings more energy into the auric field. It is stimulating to the auric field and meridians, acting as a prism for soul-level energy, infusing the aura with a rainbow spectrum of light. Titanium (Flame) Aura allows for one to go deep into meditation to receive spiritual attunement. Overall this crystal is one that brings insight, compassion, energy, excitement and joy into life’s experiences. It is capable of carrying higher frequency range, excellent for trance channels, mediums, psychics and maintains grounding while in a higher state of consciousness.


Tangerine Sun Aura Quartz – This crystal has a dynamic energy, connected to higher forces and deeply supportive of spiritual exploration. It is great for visualization and gaining profound insight. A six-sided form is ideal for opening a blocked or un-awakened Third Eye. Use to disperse dark moods and uplift the spirit. It makes one more responsive and imparts the ability to face life’s challenges with equanimity and cheerfulness. Tangerine Aura unites the Base, Sacral and Solar Plexus Chakras to provide a cleansing, energetic flow throughout the body and to stimulate one’s creativity. 


Star Ruby – Star Ruby carries the same properties as a normal Ruby but it is thought to have stronger healing and magical energies. It is said to assist in recognizing the true abundance available within ones life. It is also said to help recognize and release suppressed anger. Ruby healing properties – Ruby has always been a talisman of passion, protection and prosperity. It actively stimulates the Base Chakra, increasing vitality and chi, the life-force energy, throughout the physical body and into the spirit. It promotes a clear mind, increased concentration and motivation, and brings a sense of power to the wearer, a self-confidence and determination that overcomes timidity and propels one toward prosperity and achievement. Stone of love and passion. 

The crystals are making me feel like there is a very exciting, creative and passionate energy going on today. I feel very connected to higher beings when working with these crystals, and they have a message that is very high vibration. Love, passion and creation. Let me see what the card is that goes along with this message. 


The card I pulled for today is the Queen of Summer. Summer is a rich and fulfilling season. We often spend time near or in the water, also symbolic of emotion. It is a time of wonderful experiences. Summer is a suit of emotional wellbeing, family bonds and joy in life. In the depths of our emotions, we experience our intuition and psychic gifts more fully. And so this suit brings us spiritual growth that leads to an understanding of what really matters in our lives. We are learning what really matters in our lives. We are learning what is most important is self-love, and growing as a human beings and spiritual beings. We have learned that we have to balance ourselves to be emotionally well and whole. We have learned to love and appreciate our families and friends that surround us. We are doing the work and we are growing. The crystals and the card is telling me we need to keep taking the time we need, to spend time honing our creative spirits, to reenergize our souls, and to find the emotional balance we need so that we can raise our level of consciousness. If your not doing enough of that, do something today that is just for you, that makes you feel happy, relaxed, creative and allows you to express yourself. Spend time in water. Maybe have a bath with some earphones in, and listen to some music or meditations. Spend some time with your significant other, today is a great day for love. Listen to your heart. Make sure to take the time you need, so you can create the beauty you need in your life, and allow yourself to grow spiritually. You have things to teach others as well. Fill up your cup so you can fill up the cups of others too. 

Queen of Summer – The queen of summer is beautiful and serene. You enter her presence and a sense of calm envelops you. She radiates love and peace. She also knows what you’re thinking! Extremely intuitive, she understands your heart better than you do. This queen has a deep love for friends and family and will be there for you. In fact, she’s pretty much there for everyone. Tenderhearted and charitable, she can give too much. For this reason you may experience the queen of summer as and exhausted and conscious person. She has given a great deal and hasn’t always been given to in equal measure. She has experienced loss. And in that loss, she may have become wiser and more discerning about whom she lets in. The queen stands in a field, surrounded by other fairies. The sunflowers indicate she can create happiness, which is why so many are vying for her attention. Additional meanings of this card: A close and trusted friend. Taking on an important cause. Protecting those who need assistance. Being sure to give and receive. A spiritual teacher.
