Moon Phase: Waning Crescent, Aquarius Your relationship with your emotions might be more complicated, because Moon in Aquarius has a strong need for emotional freedom. However, when you are in a group of people, it is easier for you to understand your feelings and free yourself from negative emotions such as fear, anger and jealousy.
Word of the Day: Nurture Defined: care for and encourage the development of
WOO Cards: To the Sea (7) Being in flow, Returning to Source, recognizing how pieces fit together, a natural pattern of events. Allow trust and faith to guide you forward as you flow like a river into the sea of life. —-thanks to Collette Baron-Reid and Wisdom of the Oracle
Nurturing IS being in the flow. The nurturing occurs in that space. I can see it and feel it when things are serendipitous. Does this mean a Santa Claus moment? Yes, and no. The moments I can be aware, are simpler due to the flow. I tend to enjoy, to look forward to them—I want MORE of them. This nurtures belief, that when I take action upon it, sometimes by doing nothing to get in the way of things, faith is then nurtured in turn. Picking and deciding what is ‘good/nurturing’ or ‘bad/not nurturing/detrimental’ has me doing the all or nothing, the binary. Perhaps too simple, but when my insides are whoosh, everything clicks, is just right, grounded, I have experienced nurturing.

“The greatest need is to always search for something. In order to feel safe you might find that you need to have a goal, mission or philosophy that gives your life meaning. With Moon in Sagittarius you have an optimistic approach to life and you believe that things will get better even if you get into trouble.” —Mooncalendar, Astroseek.com
Word of the Day: Thinker
Defined: someone who considers important subjects or produces new ideas
Came from a WOO Card: face value, logical path, simple, things are as they appear/Analysis paralysis. Thinking has its place, but trying to figure everything out logically is not going to work right now. Your conclusions will likely be faulty, and you may act upon false assumptions that will get you in a jam. Give your mind a rest. Do something creative, exercise, or meditate. Soon you’ll come to your senses and an ”Aha” moment will bring new clarity.
Remember Think, Think, Think
WOO Cards: Blessed 22, Message in A Bottle 15 (R), Building Blocks 28 (R)
Grace, Awe, and Gratitude
“Are you refusing to acknowledge the signs because you want things as you want them? Red flags are not pretty decorations for you to admire; they are warning you for a reason. If something doesn’t sit right with you, trouble could be hiding in the bushes. Don’t ignore the signs. Spirit always has your best interests at heart and will draw your attention to what you are overlooking.”
“Now is the time for you to address the cracks in the foundations of your life. Perhaps your values have changed and it is time to strengthen your convictions and let go of things that no longer serve the vision you have for your life. Or perhaps you chose to ignore the signs that a situation or agreement you have entered into is not right for you. Remove the rotten pieces and reinforce your core moral strength and integrity. Now is the time for rigorous honesty, for you are called to renovate and upgrade your consciousness! You will be so happy when you do. Spirit has a spectacular blueprint for your life far beyond your wildest imagination. Don’t be afraid to replace what’s not solid. “

Stone Ally: Euclase, Malachite
Euclase: Wisdom from Within, Inner Truth, Aligning with Divine Intelligence, Trusting your own earned wisdom.
“You know for more than you think—trust your inner wisdom, for it is guided by the Conscious Universe. You are learning that fear can distort your intuitive intelligence, so release any worry and tune in within. You have a vast library of knowledge available to you and wise and loving guidance that will help you.”
Malachite: Clarity of thought and emotions, the right use of intellect, integrating thoughts and intuition.
“Overthinking can make you feel like you are starting to lose it, but Malachite Spirit has appeared to let you know that there is a difference between unproductive ruminating and taking the time to apply logic that can help you make sense of what you know. Reasoning with clarity means the right use of your intellect as you consider all of the evidence you have encountered…Your reasoning powers are at their peak right now, so let go of any old beliefs that would make you doubt Malachite Spirit’s message, which is to trust that you are smart enough to sort through all the information before you.”
“ Malachite is a beautiful stone that helps integrate our personal power, hearts, and intellect simultaneously. It allows us to come from a place of authority without losing sight of what is for the highest good of all. It is a useful stone to work with when exploring issues around the next right action in families and organizations.”
The greatest need is to always search for something. In order to feel safe you might find that you need to have a goal, mission or philosophy that gives your life meaning.

Unfinished Symphony 10 (R), Fork in the Road 13 (R), New Life 39 (R)
“When unfinished business casts a shadow over your life, it is a reminder that procrastination is a form of self-sabotage. It is not in your best interest to stall. Even stumbling forward is better than holding back. Don’t overthink things or let yourself get distracted—just tie up any loose ends and deliver the results. Don’t quit before the finish line. Spirit wants you to win.”
“Indecision is extremely frustrating and will lead to anxiety, loss, and confusion. At this juncture you can’t remain in place without losing your way altogether. Avoid the tendency to let others choose for you, which amounts to a subtle refusal to take responsibility. Don’t give your power away, not even to this oracle. By not making a choice, you are making a choice, for which you must be accountable. If that choice leads to undesirable circumstances, take heart: Spirit never tires of giving you second chances. You can always start again once you’ve learned this valuable lesson.”
“You must acknowledge your inexperience and gently allow yourself to be like the delicate new bud opening. It’s okay to admit you might not know something. You are at the beginning of things and haven’t yet hit your stride. Be immersed in the newness of it all, and don’t try to rush the learning process. New life has its own timetable for maturity. Be here now. Life loves you.”

Stone Ally: Lepidolite
Simplification, manageability, organization, next right thing at a time. Help to remain present, rather than refocusing over and over (unmanageable due to constant overuse of energy). One simple action at a time restores manageability and balance occurs as situations work out while I am focused on the work portions.
Raw Morganite (fell from deck)
Sensitivity, gentleness, empathy, compassion, the gift of vulnerability, self-forgiveness. Rock is hard, water is patient idea. There is no need to forceful when you can simply be open to what you are entitled to receive. No need to engage in battles that serve no one.
“Morganite is a gentle heart-cleansing stone that is valuable when we wish to release old patterns, wounds, and blockages that are obstacles to loving relationship with others. Meditation with this stone allows connection to divine love, which eases fear of vulnerability and allows us to be open to receiving love from others and from Spirit.” —Colette Baron-Reid, The Crystal Spirits

WOO cards: Imagine 20 (R), Truth Be Told 14, Higher Power 4
Catastrophizing and Awfulizing—see things as they really are, a misuse of the imagination, work on grounding and clearing fear and old ideas contributing to active dysfunction.
Honesty accepting things at face value, end denial, disease of perception—what tied me to an illusion/delusion.
Concious contact, Highest Good, how to best be of Service
Is my relation to spirit number one? Do I work at it the same way I work at other things? Do I berate myself, rather than taking the connective steps?
Thanks to the Wisdom of the Oracle and Colette Baron-Reid
Stone Ally: Obsidian, Identifying and clearing old thought patterns.
The cards talked about my relationship with money and abundance, which I ignored, as I asked about relating to the word of the day, however…hmmm
Plant Ally: Strawberry gives of herself until the young plants are well established, Strawberry knows deep down no matter what the present conditions appear to be, she has the power to succeed. Strawberry magic is the magic of success through inner vision that sustains until the outer world is ready to receive. Properly preparing oneself (see cards above!)
Moon Phase: Last Quarter, Gemini Moon in Gemini manifests itself by the need for changes and spontaneity. Safety lies in thinking about your feelings and sharing them with others. You can be more talkative and speak with ease these days. You might have a better ability to keep a cool head, but beware, cold heart can discourage others. Harmony of thinking and feeling is important. (Courtesy Moon Calendar, Astroseek.com)

WOO cards: Come to the Edge 36(r) and Never Ending Story 37 Fear based thinking, victim story, look about apply determination in a direction that is aligned with HP. Feeling stuck and OMG it’ll never get better this ONLY happens to me. I chose these cards and the word of the day when I was upset after working for 2 days on opening a new wordpress blog. I was successful when I simply altered a current one, that I hadn’t used in a while! What can I choose beyond fear and not feeling good enough, what can I choose beyond comparing with others. What will bring me joy and be right action?
Stone Ally for the Above: Spessartine Garnet 53 Real self shine! Powerful manifester of abundance (on whatever I am focused upon).(Colette Baron-Reid, The Crystal Spirits) Must for building self confidence, personal power, and creativity. It encourages one to take action toward one’s dreams visions and goals. Assists on overcoming fears of new experiences and fear of failure, will encourage one to be more impulsive, spontaneous, and intuitive. (Ahsian, The Book of Stones)
Lemurian Quartz 31 Free myself to dream big. What do I see for myself? How do I picture myself in this future? What kind of person have I evolved into as I strive to fully embrace and enjoy my life? Remember to see struggles as allies and things gained that carried and helped me to allies, epiphanies and inner wisdom, from the experience gained from having had them. Think big, no need to humble self (false pride/sense of modesty) OOOO combined with the garnet! See how any prosperity imagined can be of service and benefit to others. (Colette Baron-Reid, The Crystal Spirits)
Plant Ally: Rosemary Carried and used in healing poppets for good health, used in love/lust spells, worn to improve memory, used in dream pillows to prevent nightmares, burned as incense for purification and removing negativity. Wear or carry while reading or completing tasks to improve memory of the material and aid clear thinking (great for students!). Use an infusion of rosemary to wash hands before any healing magick. Use in bath magick for purification. Associated with faeries. (Coven.the thrifty witch.com) Personal experience: lifting, surrounding, as in feeling of grounding in conscious contact or aura shielding. Freedom combined with clarity of focus. Not a specific point or item, however, the space to see what might be focused upon, outside of the itty bitty shitty committee, or outer seeming busyness or chaos. Like a cloud lifting. Reset.
