This Scorpio new moon is already hitting me and it's not actually new moon until Saturday. As I continue to grapple with frequent migraines and recover from a cold, I have been contemplating the wonderful ways I am supported. This led me to choosing to use two items that were gifted to me, both the card and the feather. It's interesting how these small items )and acts of kindness in general) are capable of carrying us through our struggles.
The card was designed by my lovely soul sister Val in Edmonton. Val is a curator of magnificent crystal specimens and she makes the most magical and powerful crystal creations. You can sneak a peek at her Etsy shop Luna Blue Boutique.
I feel this Illumination card fits perfectly with the Scorpio new moon. Scorpio is well known for being able to get to the truth of any matter. It's laser vision is supported by stellar intuition and powerful magick. The illumination card urges us to shine a light on areas we are seeking to transform in our life.
The blue jay feather came to me this past week from my gem gal, Jenny White of Jenny Story Stones. She often sends me a feather with my gem orders and the medicine is always perfectly timed. I have such admiration for Jenny and her generous heart. Her authenticity always shines and I love witnessing her journey.
I feel the blue jay urges us to embody our truth. It is confident, bold, and adaptable. It is regal and loves to flaunt it a bit. And why not?! We need to remember to loosen up and enjoy life. I know that I often can get stuck in the all work and no play mentality, especially lately as I prep for a busy market season and offering a new product. I am using the blue jay to remind myself that, as my friend Susan so often says, "presence is the prayer."
I chose black tourmaline for the crystal this time. Black tourmaline is highly protective and it grounds us. It assists us to be present, in the moment, and solidly rooted to the earth. Scorpio is a water sign and is super sensitive. I have so.much. Scorpio going on in my chart right now, including my Jupiter return. To say I am feeling a little raw is an understatement. I have been working with black tourmaline quite a bit lately, welcoming it's protective and purposeful energy. Allowing myself to come back into presence, working to let go of anxiety and welcoming in the support that is offered to me.
Wishing each of you a blessed new moon. Below is the mantra for this lunar phase. xoxo
Boundaries allow me to honor and evaluate the expectations I set for myself.
This permits me to embrace my innate sacredness,
and welcome the types of support I most need.
Support will arrive, often times in packaging that is foreign and unexpected,
But delivering the medicine, truth, and nurturing that I so desperately need.
