Stone meditation: Selenite

What is it?

Selenite is one of the four very different crystal formations of gypsum, the others being satin spar, desert roses, and gypsum flowers. The word selenite comes from the Greek "selenites," meaning “stone of the moon.” Gypsum is the most commonly occurring of the sulfate minerals and can be found throughout the world, though the crystal forms of selenite are less common. All varieties of selenite are very soft, rating a 2 on the Mohs scale, and are easy to identify as they are easily scratched with a fingernail. This mineral can come in a variety of colors, including grey, green, brown, red, orange, pink, and yellow, but is most commonly clear to pearly white or sand colored. In all of its crystal structures, selenite is slightly bendable, though it will break if it is put under too much strain. Selenite is slightly water soluble, and will pit and mar, or even dissolve altogether, when exposed to moisture.

What can it do for you?

Selenite is a strongly healing and balancing stone. It helps to remove energy blockages throughout one’s physical and mental being. One can use the a wand-shaped crystal to brush away negative energies around the body. After an extended illness, one can bathe with selenite (though it will dissolve with repeated use), which will help remove the energetic garbage that illness can collect in the auric field. This unwanted energetic “junk” will literally wash down the drain. Selenite can aid one in finding clarity of mind, especially when used as a focus for meditation. It can also open us up to spiritual growth and can aid in connecting with spirit guides and angels, as well as strengthen one’s intuition and psychic abilities. Selenite promotes mental flexibility and an open and honest approach to all things.

What can it teach us?

Selenite teaches us the value of flexibility. While under pressures that would break other crystalline minerals, selenite crystals begin to bend. The lesson for us is that being rigid, unyielding to others as well as new experiences, can keep us from discovering new and beautiful things about ourselves. Of course, both we and selenite have our limits: Ask either of us to bend too much, and we will break. It is good to understand our limits, but still be open to compromise and going with the flow.

Astrology trends for the week of June 20

Be ready for a busy day, astrologically speaking, on Monday. First up is the Full Moon in Sagittarius. This is the time when your projects for this Moon Cycle are coming to fruition. Monday is also the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, when the forces of light are at their strongest. This is also the first time in 50 years that the June Solstice occurs during a Full Moon.

Summer officially begins at 6:34 PM. A few hours later, Mercury in Gemini moves into opposition of Saturn in Sagittarius. Shortly after that, Mercury squares off against Neptune in Pisces. A Mercurial mind may sabotage your long-term plans today. When the sun is shining and the flowers are in bloom, it can be quite difficult to put in the hours of hard work that propel us toward our goals, and getting your mind to focus on what is in front of you may feel impossible. Flitting from project to project, like a hummingbird looking for nectar, isn’t going to get you where you want to be. Definitely take some time to enjoy the season today, but balance that with getting some work done, too.

Finally, as Monday evening approaches, the Sun moves into the deeply emotional territory of Cancer. For the next month, we will find ourselves very sensitive, but we are likely to keep this hidden under a protective shell. We will be very influenced by the emotional vibe of our surroundings, responding deeply to kindness, sympathy, and approval and also equally sensitive to fear, harsh words, censure, and ridicule. One of the biggest dangers during this month is that we may keep these deeply felt reactions hidden from those around us. They won’t know when they are causing us pain, and if we lash out in reaction, they will have no idea why. We may keep it hidden when others cause us joy, as well. Making yourself impossible to read, emotionally, will put everyone in a difficult place.

Tuesday is a much less tricky day, as the Capricorn Moon trines Jupiter in Virgo. This is a day that will be good for your happiness, health, and bottom line. Of course, with Virgo and Capricorn involved, you may treat achieving health, wealth, and joy like it is a business venture, but sometimes finding your bliss is serious stuff!

Be careful on Wednesday evening, when Mercury in Gemini is square to Jupiter in Virgo. When Mercury is in Gemini, we can find ourselves being swayed by the latest bit of news we’ve heard, even if that news is only part of the story, or even completely untrue. This puts us at risk of falling for faulty reasoning. You may think you’ve found the opportunity to buy the goose that laid the golden egg and Jack’s magical beans at a bargain price, but it is much more likely that you are paying too much for a cranky old bird and some dried up beans. Best to keep your cash in your pocket and reach fame and glory through more conservative means, at least for a few days.

The same message is repeated on Thursday morning, when Mercury in Gemini is quincunx to Pluto in Capricorn. This is another day in which your reasoning is a bit shaky. Snap judgments and rash actions will undoubtedly shake your world up in dramatically unpleasant ways. Instead, try to keep your mind open to new information as it comes in, allowing yourself to change tactics to get what you want, instead of abandoning the project at the first sign that it will require some hard work.

Friday morning brings us a trine of the Libra Moon and Mercury in Gemini. This aspect highlights your common sense and shrewdness. That desire for change and variety you’ve felt over the past few days can be put to good use today. As long as there is well-considered purpose behind your change, trying new methods or playing with new ideas can bring you benefits.

After a fairly challenging week, emotionally speaking, Saturday brings us a very welcome trine of the Pisces Moon and the Sun in Cancer. This aspect promises us a peaceful day with little strain on our sensitive souls. Today would be an excellent one in which to spend some time meditating, or even just communing with nature in the garden, whatever it takes to recharge your emotional batteries.

The week closes as astrologically busy as it opened. Sunday morning brings us a trine between Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Pisces. This is the second time this year that these two planets have trined, but it won't happen again until 2024. Both serve as a promise that the future is bright, in terms of increased opportunity for happiness and financial security. Later, Mercury in Gemini is quincunx to Mars in Scorpio. This is a reminder to not allow your ambitions and relentless drive toward success to turn you into a ruthless, fault-finding mercenary, willing to sacrifice others to your desire for success. Enthusiasm for your projects is great, but remember that all the money in the world is meaningless without people with whom you can enjoy your spoils. Shortly after, Mercury is sextile to Uranus, highlighting your originality and inventiveness, and this ability will be key in reaching your goals. But a late night quincunx of Venus in Cancer and Saturn Sagittarius once again reminds us not to sacrifice our humanity to reach those goals. Instead, a sensitive touch, handing out praise when earned, and being gentle in criticism can help you build a team that will support you as you reach for the stars.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Stone meditation: Lake Superior agate

What is it?

Lake Superior agate can be found in the upper Midwest, from Minnesota to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. They were formed in air pockets that were found in the sea of lava that covered this region about a billion years ago. The pockets filled with concentric bands of fine-grained quartz which were stained by iron-rich materials, giving these agates their distinctive red, orange, and yellow coloring (white, brown, tan, and black bands can be found in Lake Superior agates, as well). Running water and chemical disintegration broke up the lava, and agates were washed out into the soil and Lake Superior. Many Lake Superior agates show distinct banding, often in fortification, waterline, or eye formations. Lake Superior agates are prized for their beauty and are collected for display specimens or cut and polished for use in jewelry.

What can it do for you?

Lake Superior agates are very protective stones and can help give a sense of personal power and courage. They can increase your confidence and strength of will. These agates also stimulate passion, sensuality, and fertility. They can help those who feel like their love has cooled to reconnect. Lake Superior agates can help to stoke one’s fires for living, reigniting your passion for life. Agates are closely related to the element of water and can help us to connect to its calming, life giving energy.

What can it teach us?

Lake Superior agate teaches us to not give up when we feel trapped or pinned in. There are periods in our lives in which we can see no way to move forward. We feel our route blocked in every direction we turn. This closed off pocket of reality may make us want to curl up into a ball and give up on the dea of progress. It’s okay to give into this feeling briefly, but then use the situation as a challenge to creatively find new solutions to your dilemma. What have you missed, what options haven’t you tired? Is it time to ask for someone else to give you a hand to break you out of this void? Or, what can you do to be your own “geologic event,” truly breaking new ground for yourself so that you can push forward?.

Reader Spotlight: Ewa

Ewa (pronounced “Ehva”) has always been strongly intuitive and empathic. “I have been able to read people since grade school. As I got older, I began receiving premonitions and would tell the people who were in them what I saw. Usually, these premonitions were warnings specific to that person. I saw that this helped people. Helping people is what drew me to be a reader, and it brings me closer to God. I also enjoy connecting someone here to a loved one on the other side.”

As a natural intuitive, Ewa never had to be taught to read, but she did seek out mentors to help her better understand her gift. “These people helped me to understand that this ability is a gift, not a curse.” Two of Ewa’s mentors are faces that are familiar to Michigan Psychic Fair regulars: Carol Grace, “who helped me understand mediumship more accurately,” and Laura Moody, “who taught me the etiquette of doing readings.”

When sitting down for a session with a client, Ewa uses a combination of her gifts, such as mediumship, empathic and intuitive abilities, and clairvoyance/clairaudience, as well as photo reading. "When I read a person, I feel people’s energy and can read that. I see and hear things, and I feel what the client is feeling. I do not use any tools in my sessions. During all of my readings, I know that my client is protected by the love of God. I only tell people what I am instructed to tell them. I am just the messenger! I don't tell people what they want to hear. I tell them what they are supposed to be told. I have a few rules I establish before doing a reading:

1- I remove my opinions – They are not allowed in any reading.

2- I remove any ego of mine – Also not allowed in any reading.

3- Judgment is not allowed into any reading whatsoever!

4- All of my readings come from pure love and are the truth.

Of joining Michigan Psychic Fair, Ewa says, “Working with Michigan Psychic Fair has always been a dream of mine. The environment has wonderful energy- very positive, and full of love. The fair brings in wonderful clients and for this I am very thankful. The opportunities have been endless. The energy that is here is truly amazing. I have met very fascinating people.”

Astrology trends for the week of June 13

Monday, shortly before midday, Venus in Gemini is quincunx to Mars in Scorpio. If you’ve been feeling the urge to cheat on your significant other, now is not the time. Staying committed while Venus is in Gemini is more challenging than usual, as we tend to feel there might be something better, or at least more exciting, around the corner. Under this aspect, acting impulsively on sexual urges is guaranteed to get you into dangerously deep waters, and secrets aren’t likely to stay hidden. If the spark has gone out of your relationship, it’s time to have a frank conversation with your partner. A solution to your dilemma can only be reached through open and honest discourse. And, who knows? Your partner might be as eager as you to creatively reignite those fires. You won’t know unless you talk about it.

Late in the afternoon, Neptune begins its annual Retrograde, which will last until mid-November. This is unlike the Retrograde of some other planets, as Neptune’s dreamy and mysterious influence isn’t reversed. It is, instead, intensified and turned inward while the planet moves backward. This is the time of year you are likely to find yourself more lost in your own thoughts. It is a good time to explore your deepest hidden thoughts and desires, as well as to further explore your spiritual, mystical side. One of the down sides is that, for those of us who are used to being front and center, we can now feel ourselves lost in the crowd, with our contributions going unappreciated. The inverse is also true: Those who usually work behind the scenes can find themselves getting the recognition they deserve while Neptune is retrograde. Due to this shifting spotlight, now is a good time for us to take stock of our productive and creative efforts, to value them outside of the kudos they may earn us, allowing us to understand the intrinsic value of our contribution to the world.

Tuesday may just be the day to try something new, as the stars are lining up to support us in breaking new ground. First up, the Sun in Gemini is sextile to Uranus in Aries, early this morning. This is an aspect that encourages us to put our most original plans into motion. It promises rewards for those who are willing to take the risk to see their ideas realized. Tuesday evening, the Sun trines the Libra Moon. This is an aspect that puts a positive light on relationships and partnerships. While this can mean that you find yourself suddenly socially in demand, it can also mean that you now can find the right people to help your newly begun plans succeed.

Early on Wednesday morning, it is the Sun’s turn to be quincunx to Mars in Scorpio. Unlike Tuesday, this is not the day to take risks. We are likely to be aware of our own power, which will lead us in to trouble, be it through headstrong, combative confrontations, or by taking rash and impulsive actions that make us our own worst enemy. Instead, today is a good day to move others through subtle diplomacy instead of force, and to show our leadership potential by steady work and flexibility.

The Scorpio Moon is sextile to Jupiter in Virgo on Thursday afternoon. My mother always used to tell me that, if I found something I truly loved, I would find a way to make a living from it. This aspect supports this idea. Do not expect that living to fall into your lap: It is guaranteed to take work, and lots of it. Thus, spend some time today to search your mind (and maybe the internet) to find the way to turn your passions into a living, and develop a step by step plan to make it happen.

On Friday afternoon, Venus enters Cancer, making things much trickier in our emotional life. In general, this is a very family-centered, nurturing time. Love, now, is often expressed by us in terms of providing material security, and we’d like the same given to us. Between now and July 12th, our need to know ourselves to be loved becomes pressing. The problem is that we will also feel the need to wrap our emotions in a protective outer shell. We want others to pursue us, to prove that they truly love us, without us ever letting them know we need this reassurance. This makes it very difficult for others to know what we actually need at any given moment. Watch out for passive-aggressive tendencies. In fact, spend some time over the next four weeks trying to find ways to nurture your sense of emotional security, instead of seeking it from others. Also, it is important that not expect our loved ones to understand that doing the grocery shopping is our way of saying, “I love you.” They, like us, are also likely to be swaddling themselves in a protective shell, which can cause subtle expressions of love fail to hit the mark. Try to speak up, both in terms of what you need and what you feel.

The Moon and Saturn pair up in Sagittarius on Saturday evening. This is a good time to turn your efforts toward your business affairs, as you will have an attentive and critical eye. However, this is an aspect that can drive such efforts to an extreme, bringing out the never satisfied perfectionist in you. Today, yes, you will want to get some productive work done, but make sure you also give yourself some time to breathe in some fresh air, clear your head in a garden, or even find a friend with whom you can goof off and laugh at the world. Finding the time to let go of your ever-critical self is important to your ability to produce good work in the long run.

Very early on Sunday morning, Mars in Scorpio is quincunx to Uranus in Aries. This is a day when we run the risk of self-confidence turning into over-confidence, leading us to trouble. You may feel sure of yourself and even more sure of what you know, but this can also mean you are shutting out some important information, or that you are operating on prejudices. If you rush forward, acting on this faulty information, you are likely to see an end to your plans. Instead, try to keep yourself open to new information, give yourself time to think things through calmly, then follow through with practical, not forceful, action. Uranus always means we should expect the unexpected. Today, we need to make sure we are receptive to these surprises and flexible enough to shift our own actions as they arise.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Stone meditation: Kyanite

What is it?

Kyanite is a metamorphic stone whose name is derived from the Greek “kuanos,” meaning deep blue. While blue is the most common color for this mineral, it can also be found green, black, colorless, and, very rarely, orange. It generally grows in bladed crystals, though it sometimes forms in radiating clusters. This mineral is most notable for its strong anisotropism- its hardness is different along its two axes. On the short axis, it rates a 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs hardness scale, on the long 4.5 to 5. Kyanite is also very heat resistant, and is therefore used in many industrial processes where this characteristic is important, such as in the porcelain found in spark plugs. It can also be used in industrial abrasives, as well as cut and polished for use as a semi-precious gemstone in jewelry.

What can it do for you?

Kyanite is most often used to aid in aligning the chakras and to facilitate physical healing. Kyanite helps us reevaluate the ideas of blind faith and karmic debt, allowing us to better understand our own role, via the choices we make, in the outcome of our actions. Blue kyanite calms the body and mind, and soothes fears. It can also help create a feeling of connection between people who otherwise feel unconnected, and help them work together. Black Kyanite is protective and can help us understand our personal power. Green kyanite increases creative powers. Kyanite, in general can help clear away unwanted energy, including energy collected by other gemstones as they have been used. Kyanite is able, unlike any other stone, to then self-cleanse itself, and will never need any additional cleansing.

What can it teach us?

Kyanite can teach us the value of flexibility and versatility. Like kyanite crystals, we are at times strong, at others less so. This is okay. Sometimes, being hard helps us make it through difficult or painful circumstances. But if we are always strong, hard, and unbending, we will undoubtedly miss out on making emotional connections with others. If we are softer, open to the influence of others, we can make emotional connections and find the love we want. But always being emotionally open leaves us unnecessarily vulnerable to others who don’t have our best interests at heart. The trick is to find the balance- to be strong when our survival requires it and to be open, when the time is right, to the emotional experiences that lead to satisfying connections to others.

Astrology trends for the week of June 6

You’re likely to start this week feeling a bit frisky, when the Sun and Venus move into conjunction in Gemini on Monday evening. This is a very good aspect under which to have a flirtatious, lighthearted fling, but bear in mind that Gemini’s influence probably means it won’t turn out to be a long-term thing. You’ll be ready to move on as soon as the New Relationship Energy begins to cool. If such an affair isn’t your thing, this is a good time for social gatherings, or even a money-making business venture.

Early on Tuesday morning, both the Sun and Venus are quincunx to Pluto in Capricorn. This serves as an extra warning to keep things light and be honest about your intentions with any fling you’ve started. Possessiveness, jealousy, selfishness, or less than ethical behavior will result in some serious turmoil in your life. I’m a true advocate of the idea that consenting adults get to do what consenting adults want to do. But part of consenting is that all parties have to be fully aware of exactly what it is that they are agreeing to. If you can’t handle this rule, it would be best that you take a break from matters of the heart (or other bodily parts) to figure out what it is you truly want, and why it is you can’t be honest with everyone, including yourself, about it. And if your partner can’t play by those same rules, it is time to walk away.

Wednesday evening sees Mercury in Taurus sextile to Chiron in Pisces. Now is the time to talk it out and find some emotional resolution. If you’ve been trying to process through some emotional turmoil, such as grief or feelings of guilt, but just not getting the closure or clarity you need to move forward, this is an excellent time to start talk therapy, or at least to seek out an impartial ear to unburden yourself to. But you must make sure you listen to what is being said, both to you and by you. There are likely more lessons you need than you are anticipating. Try to put aside your fears and listen up.

Watch what you do and what you say (or at least how you say it) on Thursday. Mercury in Taurus moves into opposition of Mars in Scorpio early in the afternoon, leaving us all spoiling for a fight. Our mood is going to be touchy, argumentative, and excessively fault-finding. And we aren’t likely to sugarcoat our opinions. More likely, the sarcasm and backhanded compliments will be flying today. Do your best to keep your temper in check, as well as your comments to yourself. I’m not generally one to advocate leaving things left unsaid, but, if ever there was a day to make an old adage your mantra of the day, this is the one: If you don’t have anything nice to say, it’s best to say nothing at all.

The need to self-edit continues into Friday, when the Leo Moon squares off against Mars in Scorpio. Under this aspect, you are likely to feel the need to draw attention to yourself, making every head turn your way as you make your Grand Entrance. Remember there is a very fine line between stealing the scene and making a scene. This aspect guarantees that sarcastic tongues will be wagging, and your capital D Drama is likely to cause hurt feelings, jealousies, or lingering resentments. Today it’s best to remain one of the crowd to avoid conflicts you don’t need in your life. There will be other days, ones astrologically better suited, in which to get your attention whore needs met.

Saturday offers us a very welcome chance to change gears, in the form of the Moon and Jupiter moving into conjunction in Virgo. Here, we will be looking for the stimulation of a new challenge, especially a challenge that will stimulate our bank accounts. Your judgment and reasoning will be sound, making this an excellent day to lay out your step-by-step strategy for realizing your financial or career goals.

Late Sunday morning, Venus in Gemini is sextile to Uranus in Aries. This aspect is one that favors the risk-taker, as well as being good for business. It's also an aspect that strengthens business relationships. This is the time to surround yourself with progressive-minded people, those who not only think outside the box, but aren’t even sure where the box is. Now is the time to break new ground if you want to reap the rewards. Sunday evening sees Mercury leave the slow and steady energy of Taurus and enter the vibrant and novelty-seeking energy of Gemini. During this time, you’re likely to be interested in accumulating facts and knowledge, at least surface knowledge, about a broad range of topics. Gemini is a fickle sign, so as soon as your new interest stops being new, you'll be ready to move on to something else. The good news is that this is home territory for Mercury, and your ability to communicate through the spoken and written word will be very strong over the next month. You will be able to size up your audience at lightning speed, and tailor your message so that it will be best received. This is a good time for negotiating to get what you need and what you want.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Stone meditation: Lapis

What is it?

Lapis lazuli is a stone that has been prized since antiquity. This stone is actually a collection of minerals, primarily lazurite, with white calcite and small flecks of glittering pyrite. Beads and carved figures of the dramatic blue stone have been found in Neolithic burial sites, as well as at third and fourth millennium B.C.E. sites in Mesopotamia and Iran. Lapis, as it is informally known, was ground in the Middle Ages for use as the pigment ultramarine, used in dyes and paints. Lapis continued to be the primary source of ultramarine until fairly recently, when synthetic ultramarine became available. Afghanistan and Pakistan have been the primary source for lapis; more recently, a major find of the stone was discovered in Chile. Smaller amounts can be found in Russia, the United States, and Canada.

The name lapis lazuli comes from the Greek word for stone -lapis and a Greek variation of the Arabic and Persian word for blue- lazuli. There has been some confusion over the stone’s identity in early times. Early accounts refer to the stone as “sapphire.” The blue corundum we now know as sapphire was not discovered until the time of the Roman Empire, and was largely unknown through the Middle Ages. An early Greek scientist described "the sapphirus, which is speckled with gold.” That description clearly is describing the stone we know as lapis lazuli. Exodus 24:10 in the King James Version says “As they saw the God of Israel, and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone." An early Latin translation uses the term “lapidus sapphire,” a phrase which meant, to the Latin speakers of that era, lapis lazuli. Later translations of Exodus often use "lapis lazuli" in this passage.

What can it do for you?

Lapis lazuli encourages truthful and meaningful communication and helps us attain wisdom and good judgment. It strengthens relationships, especially friendships, and encourages honesty in our dealings with others. It helps us communicate with the spiritual realm and can aid us in connecting with spirit guides and angels.

What can it teach us?

Lapis teaches us that our value in not what we are called, it is in the work that we do and in what we accomplish. Many of us often feel that our work goes unnoticed. We work behind the scenes to Make Things Happen, but don’t get the recognition we deserve. We should feel proud of our accomplishments even if no one else knows what we did. Ultimately, our contributions make the world a better place, and our efforts are appreciated, even if those who notice the differences we make don’t know our names.

Astrology trends for the week of May 30

Monday evening brings us a trine of Mercury in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn, allowing you to change the game, if you are so inclined. You’ve been sizing up the scene, seeing deeper connections, and getting yourself completely ready for your next move. And now is the time to set it in motion, resulting in the transformation in your life you’ve been wanting. It isn’t that you’ve been expecting a fairy godmother to wave her wand and make you the queen of the realm in an instant. No, you’ve been working your derrière off to get where you are. This trine will help you create your own fairytale ending.

This trend of realizing your dreams continues on Tuesday, when the Aries Moon trines Saturn in Sagittarius. Here, the perspective you’ve gained by putting in the hours of hard work will help you know where to make your next best move.

Things get a bit trickier on Wednesday evening, when the Sun in Gemini squares off against Neptune in Pisces. Be on guard for being too influenced by others. You’re not thinking all that clearly today, and your head is likely to be more lost in the clouds than focused on the business at hand. You may find that anyone with a torrent of sparkly words can sell you bags of used kitty litter while making you think you’ve gotten the deal of the century. Avoid signing on any dotted line today. Use this unfocused dreamy state to do some creative or spiritual work, instead.

Things are back to rosy on Thursday when an earthy Grand Trine sets up between the Moon in Taurus, Jupiter in Virgo, and Pluto in Capricorn. This Grand Trine is an extremely beneficial influence on the material aspects of our life: our health, wealth, and happiness. Good changes are promised by these planets, and you’re in the mindset to embrace them. Success can be grabbed in your productive life, especially if you are willing to break with tradition or (diplomatically) challenge the status quo.

Friday sets up a couple of speed bumps for us, first in the form of the Sun in Gemini moving into opposition to Saturn in Sagittarius in the morning, followed by Venus in Gemini opposing Saturn in the evening. Both oppositions promise some hiccups in our best laid plans. You may find yourself questioning yourself as you face opposition and obstacles. You also may feel you are stepping out alone, without the support of those you love. None of these obstacles will really deter you from the goals you’ve set for yourself. They are a reminder to not get ahead of yourself. Your dreams are not of the get-rich-quick variety. So, sadly, there will be no shortcuts on your road to success. Do your best to slow down and enjoy the process, not just the promise of rewards at the end of the long haul.

Saturday is a busy day, astrologically speaking. First, Jupiter in Virgo finds itself squaring off with both Venus and the Moon, both in Gemini. These squares are similar to yesterday’s speed bumps. They serve as warnings to not compromise your honesty nor try to gain through insincerity. Lack of truthfulness will set you back significantly today. Now is not the time to play fast and loose with the truth. The day closes with the New Moon in Gemini, which occurs at 11pm. This marks the time to launch new projects for this Moon Cycle. The Gemini Moon brings us a great deal of fast-moving energy, but don’t forget those speed bumps of the past two days. If you rush ahead, heedless of speed limits, you can expect a few difficulties. Take your time and don’t sacrifice your support network nor your own sense of truth, and you will be able to make steady progress toward your goals.

The week closes with one more positive aspect for your future: The Gemini Moon is sextile to Uranus in Aries around midday. This aspect ensures that you will be able to adjust your tactics as challenges arise, allowing you to continue to move forward. Trust your intuition to lead you to workable solutions to the problems that you face, even if, on paper, these solutions seem a bit risky. Uranus will reward those who are willing to take a new path to reach their goals.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Stone meditation: Tigerseye

What is it?

Tigerseye is a metamorphic stone composed of asbestos fibers and quartz. It comes in a range of colors, from golden brown to red (dragonseye) and blue (hawkseye). Its most striking feature is its silky chatoyancy (cat’s eye effect). This is caused by the quartz crystals and asbestos fibers having a parallel growth in the stone. South Africa and Asia are the principal sources of tigerseye, but small amounts can be found in the US. It has long been treasured as a stone for jewelry and carving. Due to its asbestos content, tigerseye should only be cut or polished by experienced lapidarists.

What can it do for you?

Tigerseye is a protective and grounding stone. It increases the courage of its bearer. This stone is known for its ability to draw wealth and abundance to its user. It is also a stone that can can activate our third eye and help our intuitive vision. Golden tigerseye is known to help increase the personal power of its user, and aid them in using this power wisely. It also stimulates the intellect and memory, making it an especially useful stone for students. Hawkseye is protective of travelers and helps the bearer be aware of obstacles or dangers in their journey ahead. It also aids in calm communication, as well as ensures the integrity of the message being communicated. Dragonseye is protective, especially against bullying. It gives its wearer a sense of calm power, and helps them find their way skillfully through difficult or stressful situations.

What can it teach us?

Tigerseye teaches us that we need to organize some of the chaos in our lives in order to live to our full potential. Asbestos in a disorganized jumble looks like a mess of fibrous snow, the mess we associate with insulation and mesothelioma. Organized and captured in parallel bands with quartz, it turns into a beautiful and safe gemstone. Our lives are similar: When we let too much chaos overwhelm us, we can miss out on the beauty, or even find ourselves lost, not sure where to go next. If we spend some effort to tame some of our chaos, be it a good spring cleaning or a daily period of meditation, we can find our way to a more rewarding life.

Astrology trends for the week of May 23

Now that Mercury has gone Direct, we are ready to embrace the future, and a Monday morning trine of the Sagittarius Moon and Uranus in Aries reinforces this optimistic feeling. As Mercury gathers forward momentum between now and the end of the month during its Storm period, we can begin to lay the groundwork for new projects. This is an especially good time to surround ourselves with other inventive people for an anything-goes brainstorming session. Let these fellow creative people shake to life those brain cells that went dormant during the Retrograde, and get cracking on reinventing the world for the better. This aspect rewards entrepreneurial risk takers.

Early on Tuesday morning, Venus leaves the steady, plodding energy of Taurus for the flirty and social realm of Gemini. Over the next month, our focus will be more on romantic play than emotional commitment. Our attitude toward love will be lighthearted and fun, and the idea of being tied down to one person not very appealing. Romantic exploration will be the main goal. Be careful of spending too much money, as Gemini can cause us to spend freely, whether or not that money is actually in our bank accounts.

One of Venus’s first acts upon entering Gemini is to face off against Mars in Sagittarius, which it does Tuesday night. This is an especially difficult aspect for relationships. We are likely to feel argumentative, hypersensitive, and generally discontent with our love lives, even if there is nothing especially wrong. Gemini will tend to make us think there is likely something better, or at least more interesting, around every corner. This is not the time to give in to this grass-is-greener attitude. Wait a day or two, at the very least, until Mars eases its confrontational energy from our thoughts. Now is not the time for impulsive decisions, as you are extremely likely to regret them, when cooler heads prevail.

Those cooler heads do make a brief appearance on Wednesday, when the Capricorn Moon trines Mercury in Taurus. Common sense is the theme of this aspect, as Capricorn encourages us to take a sober, organized, and businesslike approach to things, while, with Taurus’s resistance to unnecessary change, we are much less likely to rush into anything without careful consideration and preparation. This can be a very productive time, and it is an especially good aspect under which to build upon those newly embraced ideas from Monday.

A square of Jupiter in Virgo and Saturn in Sagittarius on Thursday morning makes it likely that we will find some obstacles in our paths toward success. This aspect can cause us a crisis of confidence, or could make us feel like giving up on our dreams in the face of opposition. The challenge is to resist this temptation. Instead, view today as a Material Reality Check. Instead of giving up, this is the time to really figure out what it takes to achieve your goals. If others are calling your dreams Pie in the Sky, figure out what it will take to build a ladder tall enough to get your slice. Find creative solutions, based in concrete realities, to tackle each of the obstacles in your path, and plan your attack one step at a time.

Friday, Mars slides back into Scorpio again, where it will remain for the last four weeks of its Retrograde cycle. This is a time for hidden secrets to surface, and you may find some of these causing you intense emotional pain or discomfort. Ruthlessness, jealousy, anger, and resentments will be common, so watch your back. This is an especially good time, however, for your imagination and creative drive.

Saturday afternoon, the Aquarius Moon squares off against Mars in Scorpio. If you’ve been feeling bored or stuck in a rut, you'll likely hear a siren’s call to rebel against all and everything, just to experience something different. You may even pick a fight just for something to do. Giving in to your egotistical side or indulging your quick temper is guaranteed to cause regret, at the very least, and could even keep you from reaching our long-term goals. Keeping your cool and resisting the urge to act out is a much wiser course of action.

Sunday afternoon brings another square, this time between the Moon in Pisces and Saturn in Sagittarius. This is another day where unanticipated obstacles are likely to come into our paths. We are likely to feel like we’ve been working hard, and that it should be our time to reap the rewards, but things just keep not working out. This is likely to hurt our confidence, as well as cause anxiety and doubt. It’s okay to admit you’ve had disappointment, even to spend some time grieving a lost opportunity. But don’t get stuck there. There is an old saying, “It isn’t how many times you get knocked down, it’s how many times you get back up that counts.” Today, this should be your mantra. Spend a bit of time crying over your skinned knees, then start making plans for how to pick yourself off the ground and start moving forward again.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Reader Spotlight: Karen

As a young child at the beginning of her journey as one who communicates with Spirit, Karen was labeled a dreamer: “I found it difficult to come back down to Earth every time my mind drifted off with the clouds (which was often). I used to lay on the grass and gaze, doing cloud readings - watching their ability to constantly change, making up stories about the beings I saw above as they moved through the skies and were transformed into my own personal cloud story.”

From that dreamy beginning, Karen spent years studying with a number of teachers and shamans to become the reader she is today. “I began my metaphysical journey by attending the Alhambra Institute, where I was guided by a great many teachers in astrology, channeling, crystal ball, meditation, reading playing cards, psychometry, runes, tarot, tea leaves, and other methods. I have continued to study with many gifted and talented people. I seem to have an unquenchable desire to learn as much as possible.” Karen discovered early on that she loved working with stones but could not find the right method to work with them. So, for over a decade, she mostly offered her skills in palmistry, numerology, and reading the tarot. “Throughout my journey, I have been mentored and guided by a strong inner voice that kept opening doors, and wouldn't stop pushing me until I started walking on the path being created for me.” With fifteen years’ experience as a reader under her belt, she finally came back to the stones.

“I now do Shamanic Stone Readings and chakra attunement with the Bowl. This is a technique that draws upon my knowledge of astrology, numerology, chakra energy, mudras, energetic healing, and, of course, the powerful stones. A group of stones are cast onto a board in the Bowl to explain the energy surrounding you now, and how you might be able to use it to enhance your life through seeing what opportunities are waiting to come in for you, and what is ready to leave. With every tool I have, the client is given an opportunity to let go of being stuck or being hurt, and is more clearly able to see the path of life's possibilities available and waiting. As the energy of the chakras connect, the stones assist to greatly enhance the energy flow, to find the perfect frequency or vibration level that is right for you at the moment. The Bowl creates a state of high vibration, and helps build a connection to see one's path in life more clearly.” This high energy combination generates a powerful experience for both the client and the reader. “I love being able to help people connect, watching them get the big ‘a-ha’ - that's what it's like - and instantly I know we are both hearing the same message.”

Healing, both emotional and physical, is an essential part of a session with Karen. “On my journey, I spent seven years working toward my Reiki Master certification. Along the way, I added Healing Touch, foot reflexology, medical intuition, and Sound Healing, which includes Holographic Sound Healing, tuning fork therapy, Tibetan and crystal bowls, and Toning. All of this introduced me to the chakras and the knowledge of methods to clear and assist in moving this great force of energy through the central channel of the body.”

The sum of her studies and practice, she feels, has put Karen exactly where she needs to be. “Each step of my journey has led to the next and every aspect has enhanced the other. The moment I am supposed to be learning something new, a great new friend comes into my life with an interest in teaching me, or learning right along with me. I simply have to trust in the Universe to guide me along the way and catch me when needed.”

That guiding Universe has led Karen to work with the Michigan Psychic Fair. “The Michigan Psychic Fairs provide a unique opportunity, one which I am very glad to have been introduced to. This is a wonderful adventure, connecting people who are destined to meet, learning from one another. Customers always enjoy being able to have an in-person reading, and I love the schedule of traveling and taking the fair to different locations. The energy at each venue is radiant and clear, with a fun atmosphere, allowing those who enter to feel comfortable and at ease. A place where you're sure to smile, let go of life's concerns, and find out something new about yourself you never noticed before. It truly has the feeling of a welcoming and loving home”.

For more information on Karen, please see her website. Contact us at Michigan Psychic Fair for a current schedule or more information about the fairs, and to inquire about Karen's appearances.

Stone meditation: Rose quartz

What is it?

Rose quartz is the name given to the pink variety of quartz. Its color comes from exposure to a variety of mineral materials, including titanium, manganese, and iron. In Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the rose quartz found there has been stained by the heavy presence of hematite. It is almost always found massive, and only very rarely as crystals.

What can it do for you?

The traditional use of rose quartz is to draw and enhance unconditional love. It is a stone the helps us to remember to love ourselves, as well as strengthens friendships and familial relationships, especially those families that we create for ourselves (as opposed to those we are just born into). It enhances our compassion and stirs our kinder selves. Rose quartz can be used to heal emotional wounds, and open the heart to receiving new love. It is also a stone that can strengthen our connection to the feminine aspect of the Divine.

What can it teach us?

Rose quartz can teach us that we are the sum of all of our experiences: Everything that we are exposed to affects us in some way, permanently changing us from what we were. As quartz is exposed to other minerals, it changes from a white or clear stone into the warm and lush colors of rose quartz. So, too, with us. Even those difficulties that we must carefully work through, things that we feel will scar us for life, make us stronger, more compassionate, more understanding of the suffering of others. In short, they make us the beautiful individuals that we are.

Reader Spotlight: KaTEE

For KaTEE Loch, being a psychic reader is being part of the family business: KaTEE is a third-generation psychic, having followed her mother, astrologer Linda Sopko, and grandfather in offering her abilities to the public.

After an accident, KaTEE found herself confined to bed for many years. Spirit came to her, telling her that she would be healed, and that she needed to return to psychic work and heal others. “I have great empathy for people and love to aid them in getting on to a higher level.”

KaTEE offers a variety of options in her sessions, such as cards, numerology, and mediumship.

Astrology trends for the week of May 16

The week starts on a productive note, when the Sun in Taurus trines the Virgo Moon on Monday morning. This trine kickstarts your drive to get things done, with focus on making your home space more beautiful, or putting in service to help out loved ones. Mercury is still Retrograde, so this isn’t the time to take on any large projects, but today will be a great day for spring cleaning orother “homework.”

On Tuesday morning the Libra Moon is sextile to Saturn in Sagittarius. This is the day to make any needed adjustments to the emotional balance of your partnerships and relationships. With your diplomatic and patient side highlighted by this aspect, you can make sure that you are surrounded by the people who can, as well as are motivated to, help you reach your long term goals.

You will want to make sure that you take advantage of this window to tweak the dynamics of your relationships, because Wednesday will be much more of a challenge to them, when the Libra Moon squares Pluto in Capricorn. Those relationships that remain out of balance, today, are apt to change radically, and this transformation is likely to be a bit painful. Resentments built upon things left unsaid for the sake of cooperation are likely to erupt. Compromises that run counter to your true values are likely to fall apart. The silver lining is that walking away from relationships that require you to betray yourself is, often, in the long run, a healthy step, a step, in fact, that can open the way for more authentic and beneficial relationships to bloom.

Venus in Taurus is sextile to Chiron in Pisces on Thursday evening, allowing you to lick your wounds from relationships past, perhaps those that crumbled after Wednesday’s square. Chiron will help you find the perspective to process the lingering hurt feelings of an ended relationship, especially those that your logical side tells you that you should be “over.” Sometimes, admitting that the pain is still there can be the hardest thing to do, but there can be many lessons to learn when we admit that we are vulnerable, that we were affected, that we are still grieving the loss of an ended romance. Today is the day to allow yourself to process these emotions.

When the Sun moves into Gemini on Friday morning, expect a shift in energy. While the Sun is in Taurus, energy is slow and steady, even a bit sluggish. Once in Gemini, things feel a bit more busy, active, and versatile. This can be a very productive time for us, as long as we are able to work in our own way. Being locked into an unvarying routine can feel like torture under this influence. Our imagination will be stirred by Gemini’s energy, and our ability with words, especially the written word, will be enhanced. This is an affectionate and kindhearted time, and we will find ourselves easily influenced by the kindness of others, sometimes to our own detriment. Luckily, Gemini’s energy is inquiring and skeptical, so we can usually find our way to the truth of the matter, if we are willing to look.

Saturday evening brings us the Full Moon in Sagittarius. The Moon and Sun are in opposition, so expect this day to be full of conflict. This can bring about an inner struggle to find balance between two polarities; this month this struggle will be between your desire to do the work to steadily progress toward your long-held dreams, and your need for novel and diverse activities. Add to this the fact that the Moon and Mars move into conjunction about an hour later, setting them to gang up, energetically speaking, against the Sun, and things could get rough. When the Moon and Mars face off with the Sun, it is usually a very argumentative, antagonistic time, one in which a major blowup is almost guaranteed. This time, this energy is a bit tempered by the fact that Mars is currently Retrograde, turning this combative energy inward. Do your best to forgive yourself for your failings and foibles over the next couple of days.

Perhaps the best news of the week comes to us on Sunday morning, when Mercury goes Direct, though it remains in its Storm period until the 31st. Between now and the end of the month, as Mercury gathers forward momentum, the areas of our lives that Mercury oversees – communications, travel, commerce, thought processes, and technology, should slowly begin to return to normal

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Stone meditation: Apatite

What is it?

Apatite comes in many colors, but is most well-known in its lovely blue-green variety. Its name is derived from a Greek word meaning to deceive or to be misleading, as stones in the group are often it is often mistaken for other minerals. In fact, it is one of the primary components that make up tooth enamel and bones. It is an extremely useful stone. One form of apatite is a naturally occurring source of fluoride. This mineral can also be used as a source of phosphorous for agricultural and industrial uses. At one point, apatite was used in fluorescent tube lighting. Apatite can sometimes be found to contain significant amounts of rare earth elements, but, unlike other sources, it is not radioactive. Recently, apatite has even been proposed for use in a nuclear waste containment system. The blue and green varieties are often used for pigmentation. And, of course, this beautiful stone has been used as a gemstone in jewelry. Apatite can be found throughout the world and traces of it were found in rocks brought back from the moon.

What can it do for you?

Apatite strengthens many processes of the mind: It assists mental focus, stirs imagination and creativity, and increases our sense of personal power, helping us to achieve our goals. It can help us find the means and strategy to bring our ideas into being. It also can help us get motivated to tackle the work we have in front of us. Apatite can strengthen our ability to contact Spirit, as well as help us focus during meditation.

What can it teach us?

Apatite teaches us to look deeper before we judge. It is easy to dismiss it as just a pretty stone. It truly is lovely and one understands why it is popular in jewelry. If you look into it further, you find this mineral can do a large variety of useful things, some of which are vital to our own continuing health. This is true of people as well. Don’t assume that someone with a pretty face has an empty head. People are much more fascinating and complex beneath their surface appearance.

Astrology trends for the week of May 9

The best news of the week is that Jupiter goes Direct on Monday morning, making joy, luck, and good fortune easier to come by than they have been since the beginning of the year. Jupiter will be in Virgo through the summer- not the ideal situation to reap the planet's rewards, but you will be aware that it is beginning to free itself from some of the chains that have been binding its energy.

Also, at 11:12am today, Mercury crosses in front of the Sun. This fairly rare occurrence, called occultation, only happens about 13 times a century (the next one will be in 2019). This is an excellent time to reflect on what you value most in your life. Remember that our reasoning can be a bit faulty when Mercury and the Sun are in exact conjunction. So, today should be a thoughtful and meditative one, not one in which to make long term commitments.

On Tuesday afternoon, Venus in Taurus trines Jupiter in Virgo. This is a good aspect for both relationships and your bank account. With Virgo’s influence, you will best show your love by being of service to your loved one, not by showering them with extravagant gifts. This would be an excellent day to cross some items off the Honey Do list, or to surprise your partner by picking up a few extra chores. These simple gestures will be well appreciated today.

Wednesday is a trickier one for romance, with Venus quincunx to Saturn in Sagittarius. Taurus often spurs us into very affectionate and generous behavior toward our beloved, but this can easily cross the line into being smothering. If we want the relationship to last, we must relax, take things slow, and allow our partners to have the freedom to live their own lives. It may be cliché to say “If you love someone, set them free,” but, today, these words need to be taken to heart. Failing to do so, under this influence, will guarantee you will soon find yourself alone.

Mercury in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn on Thursday night. This influence turns our thoughts to deep matters, seeing important connections that hide under the surface. This may be an evening in which to reconsider your relationship with family or other authority figures, perhaps allowing you to redefine yourself in a way that encourages growth and new opportunities.

On Friday afternoon, Mercury pairs up with Venus in Taurus. This influence heightens your charm, allowing you to be the most dazzling jewel of any social gathering. Later in the evening, Venus trines Pluto in Capricorn, which may signal a positive change in your love life. You may find yourself interested in someone you never before considered as a potential mate. Now is definitely the time to give such a relationship a chance.

The Sun in Taurus is sextile to Chiron in Pisces on Saturday afternoon. Today is the day to put in the work to confront those things that we fear. Seek out the root of these fears and the role that they play in your life. If you are willing to put in this soul-searching work today, you are likely to find some important lessons, or reach a catharsis that frees you from these things that currently bind you.

The Moon and Jupiter are in conjunction in Virgo on Sunday morning, bringing out your protective side. You are likely to want to spend time working for the safety and physical or mental health of those you love. Vsit an elderly loved one today, help with household chores, or bring them a healthy meal. Giving generously of your time will be rewarding and appreciated.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Reader Spotlight: Readings by Laura

Finding solutions to problems is exactly what a reading with Laura Moody is about. “I feel that if I am being shown something negative, there is a reason, and help must be presented to make this painful information beneficial.”

Having worked through some troubled times in her own life, Laura is happy to be able to offer help to those who are in need. As a sympathetic ear or a spiritual counselor, Laura works to set her clients on a beneficial path, helping them see their way through to better times. “I am positive and optimistic. I offer practical readings to help the client meet their goals. I do tarot readings which include mediumship and clairvoyance. I call them Life Path readings. They can cover all areas of one’s life.”

Laura began her own spiritual journey many years ago, and has studied with a variety of teachers, working in several different disciplines. “My first teacher was a gentleman in Royal Oak named John. He had psychic development classes once a week. We would do a variety of exercises each week, which included psychometry, meditation, and channeling. He passed away suddenly,” leaving Laura in search of new teachers. Ultimately, she studied tarot and channeling with two local practitioners, as well as participating in a weekly meditation group to further enhance her psychic abilities.

When it came time to offer her skills to the public, Laura found herself drawn to working with tarot cards, as this was the type of session she preferred when she felt the need to consult other psychics. Eventually, Laura further developed her readings to include psychic ability, clairvoyance, mediumship, and pet communication. She is also an accomplished teacher of tarot and other psychic modalities. (We at Michigan Psychic Fair are proud to offer some of her former students as readers at our events.)

Laura finds herself at home at Michigan Psychic Fair. “I love the professional environment and the opportunity to meet people and share my gift.”

For more information about Laura’s readings and classes, please see see her website. For a current schedule of Michigan Psychic Fair dates and locations, or to find out when Laura will be reading with us, please see our website.

Stone meditation: Halite

What is it?

Halite, more commonly known as rock salt, forms when a body of water evaporates, causing the minerals in it to precipitate out, leaving a sedimentary deposit of those minerals. It is commonly found and has many uses, including keeping roads free from ice, and seasoning and preserving our foods. Salts such as halite are vitally important to many life functions in the human body.

What can it do for you?

Halite aids those seeking emotional stability, protects from negativity, and provides a gentle, grounding energy. Salt can be used to purify and detoxify physical items, as well. The use of halite candle holders or lamps helps to detoxify the environment, reducing odors and allergens, as well as casting a healing energy in the surrounding area.

What can it teach us?

Halite teaches us that, as our circumstances change, we need to change with them. We should be ready to put our skills and our resources to new uses when the need arises. We also should be mindful of releasing patterns, energies, and material things that no longer serve a useful or positive purpose in our lives. By clearing away that which no longer benefits us, we are open to new opportunity and gain.

Astrology trends for the week of May 2

If it's more difficult than usual to pull yourself out of bed Monday and set your mind on the work week ahead, blame the Pisces Moon moving into conjunction with Neptune. Today, you'll be much more in the mood to create, meditate, or just spend the morning lost in dreams. If you do have to venture out into the workaday world, be aware that your head is likely to be lost in the clouds and your decision-making skills will be hazy, at best. The good news is that you will be ready to think the best of the world today; the bad news is that you are likely to keep thinking that, even when you shouldn’t. Best to leave any task that requires critical thinking for another day.

Once the fog has cleared from Monday, Tuesday begins the trend that makes this a very good week for your finances, as well as launching projects (but bear in mind that planets are currently Retrograde so things may not always go to plan). Early Tuesday morning, the Sun in Taurus trines Jupiter in Virgo. Your steady and solid approach to work will dovetail beautifully with your ability to find the surest route to the biggest reward. This is an aspect that guarantees to reward hard work and optimism with success and financial gain.

Wednesday afternoon sees another trine, this time between the Aries Moon and Saturn in Sagittarius, that will help you on your path towards reaching your goals. Here, Saturn lends you the patience and determination to know you can handle the long journey to get where you want to be, while Aries will give you plenty of decisive energy to tackling any obstacles in your way head on. Aries energy can sometimes be very confrontational, but this aspect encourages you to work through subtlety and diplomacy to get what you need.

Shortly after midnight on Thursday, the Sun in Taurus is quincunx to Saturn in Sagittarius. Here, the challenge is to understand that obstacles will come up as you work toward your long term goals. The trick to dealing with them is to know that disappointments aren’t personal failings, they are a part of life. Get yourself organized, laying out the steps you need to take to overcome your issues, then patiently and steadily do that work yourself. Later in the morning, Venus in Taurus and Mars in Sagittarius are quincunx, as well. This aspect encourages you to be enterprising in an effort to meet your financial goals, but also reminds you to keep your interpersonal relationships in proper perspective while doing so. Here, allowing yourself to become consumed in a romance will definitely distract you from the work you need to do, and starting arguments with productive partners may cause material losses. Finding that work/life balance will be key to your long term ability to get to the finish line.

Friday brings us the New Moon in Taurus. As with all New Moons, now is the natural starting point for this Moon Cycle's projects, but you will need to keep in mind that Mercury is Retrograde through May 22, and projects begun now will face obstacles. Also, Taurus is not a sign that is overly fond of risk or change. Therefore, this New Moon it's better to focus on reigniting your passion for projects already begun. Ventures which involve territory with which you are already familiar, or surround things you already value, will be most successful and least problematic.

Saturday brings another happy trine, this time between the Sun in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. This trine makes it possible for a mental Spring Cleaning: Now is the time to let go of habits and patterns that have been holding you back from attaining your goals. With Pluto Retrograde, this is an especially good time to excise those things in our lives that no longer serve a purpose.

This Sunday, prepare yourself for the Mothers’ Day from Hell: the Gemini Moon, Neptune in Pisces, and Jupiter in Virgo set up to square off, with Saturn in Sagittarius in opposition, keeping you in the crosshairs of a very uncomfortable day. Long-hidden family secrets may rattle loose, upsetting someone’s sense of who they are or where they stood within the group. Miscommunication is almost guaranteed, stymieing any attempt to clear up the matter. Luckily, this unhappy set of aspects will only be an influence for one day. We can all hit the reset button come Monday.

I hope this helps you have a great week!
