There is a lot going on this week with Christmas and the holidays right around the corner! Last minute shopping, parties, and dropping off gifts may have you feeling a bit stretched.
On top of the holiday buzz Mercury recently went retrograde, on December 19th. This can cause communication issues and making decisions difficult. Remember to stay calm if you are feeling confused or discombobulated. Breathe deeply, if you can hold onto a grounding stone l to help find center.
> Amethyst can help with peace of mind and appreciating what you have vs buying more and more gifts or feeling bad you can't afford everything on your list.
> Rose quartz can help you vibe with love, generosity and a positive viewpoint. Kindness. Helpful with family members sometimes.
Hold on to your rose quartz when cousin Lisa does that thing that drives you nuts & breathe.
> Emerald will bring you into the heart, and allow any blocks or confusion to be cleared through its powerful healing energy. Opening to love.
December 21st was the winter solstice, traditionally referred to as Yule and marks the shortest day of the year. Beginning, today, December 22nd the days will begin to get longer and lighter. Yes!
In older times Yule was seen as The Rebirth of the Sun. Despite the bit of chaos of this season, take comfort. This was considered a sacred time to our ancestors and was celebrated as a spiritual event.
Take this time to find to your own inner light, as well as a divine source if you feel inclined. If you want to strengthen your connection use a clear quartz crystal while praying or meditating to magnify your intentions. Start visualizing and working on our vision board!
Mercury retrograde can serve as a time for detaching from the external world and going inward to strengthen patience, clarity and relaxed perception. Yule is a time for celebrating the power of rebirth and hope.
>> This holiday season remember that love, generosity and sharing are keys to staying connected during these short days and long, dark nights.
Share your light with others and let love guide!
Happy Yule! Happy Hanukkah! Merry Christmas! Happy Kwanzaa! And Happy Holidays to each one of you!
