Week of August 28-September 3, 2017
Dear Tribe of Stargazers: I’m quite the crystal and stone collector. Although my collection is modest in number at best, each storied piece is precious to me. One of my many mentors along the metaphysical path – Ms. Valencia Chan, owner of Angel Light Books & Gifts in Berkeley, CA – just gave me a Crystal Divination reading this summer. It blew my mind because the reading was so helpful and I got to keep the ten stones I picked, housed in a special pouch. This is just to show you that Astrology and Tarot are not the only tools for divination and more importantly, problem-solving. If you are more comfortable using crystals and stones in a long distance reading – for example, you just dread that Death card or the Devil card in Tarot, or you can’t be bothered by the seeming “complexity” of Astrology, or you just have this inner affinity for rocks and minerals – then we can try using Ms. Valencia’s “Crystal Wisdom Cards” in our reading. As always, mga Ka-Tribu, the choice is yours.
ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19) This week, you come up with a wonderful new idea! Run it past by your colleagues, road-test it, and don’t be discouraged by the initial rough spots. You will make a great deal of progress as long as you clear up communication tangles with others. Weekly mantra: I speak my truth with confidence.
TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20) Romantic, introspective, dreamy – could they really be describing you? This week you may be hit by the love bug, or otherwise your committed relationships become stronger than ever. You find yourself in situations or discussing topics that make your heart pitter-patter with poetry. And that suits you just fine, Venus-ruled native. Weekly mantra: My love is enduring and strong. I am love.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may be going through difficult challenges now, but the rule book did not say anything about requiring you to go it alone. Therefore take advantage of all the help that is at hand. Keep your thoughts positive and uplifting, as negative thoughts may just create self-fulfilling prophecies. Weekly mantra: My usually sharp Gemini mind accepts only the dominion of positivity. I banish all else.
CANCER (June 21- July 22) This may be a period when you’re apt to prioritize your career rather than relationships. The good thing is, with the benefit of your experience, you know exactly how to strike the right balance. Your killer sense of humor softens your brilliance while your insights allow you to be more self-reliant. Weekly mantra: I am calm and steady.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22) In your heart of hearts, you know that in several important aspects of your persona and relationships, you have now come full circle. You realize that you’ve been here before and you’re now ready for a more advanced iteration of the cycle. More learning, more growth – you can’t wait! Weekly mantra: I value my spiritual growth and insight.
VIRGO (Aug 22-Sept 22) How do you know that you have grown in spiritual strength, Virgo? That comes when you reach the point of forgiveness of self and others. The perfection you seek is actually already within you, and it’s not about being faultless and undefeated. This perfection is the type that is developed through grace, self-confidence, and kindness. Weekly mantra: I am perfect in the ways that matter to me and my community.
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 22) You’ve put in the conceptualization and creative hours. You really believe you have a winner. Well, what are you waiting for? This is the right time to act upon your plans, considering Mercury goes direct by Sept. 5 and should be totally on course within 10-14 days. Time enough for refinements before you launch your baby. God and Goddess bless! Weekly mantra: My creativity is appreciated and rewarded.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21) If you find that the information you’re getting from your psychic self is uncannily accurate, then maybe this is a sign to take it seriously more often. Surely if you follow your heart, especially in the areas of home and family this week, then you can be more giving, understanding, and imbued with empathy. Weekly mantra: My love and charity begin at home and spread across my community.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21) What do you know? Your wildest dreams are fulfilled this week, child of Jupiter. Well, you were born unusually lucky in the first place. It also doesn’t hurt that you’re a hard worker, an enthusiastic team player, and an inspirational leader. Carry on, then. Weekly mantra: I am grateful for my abilities and blessings.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19) Death and rebirth are terms usually associated with the Pluto-born. But this week, you will experience peace – yes, peace – because of the passing of a situation and the birth of a new, more promising circumstance. There is a more fulfilling future that will come to pass. Set your heart and mind at ease. Weekly mantra: I let go and let God and Goddess.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18) Really, you worry unnecessarily. Rather, focus your precious mind power on the positive outcome of your desire. If you deserve it, then it shall be given to you. If it’s not for you, then it will be taken away. Release guilt, worry, or regret to Divine Spirit. Weekly mantra: I am at peace. My faith is not on outcomes but on my Creator alone.
PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20) There are plenty of promising opportunities for you, but only if you break free of procrastination and self-doubt. Embrace your true Self and express the co-Creator in you. What’s revealed will bring you freedom and confidence. Weekly mantra: I am changing my life for the bigger, brighter, and better.
Maraming salamat, Mabuhay, Namaste, and Blessed be!
Rx: My readings are good medicine.
