Daily Chakra Healing (Part 2) Monday – Root

MONDAY: ROOT

Today’s focus is safety and shadow side, stagnation. This chakra helps us cultivate the foundation necessary to survive and thrive, and without this stable base, it’s challenging to manifest what we need. We might feel as if we’re one step forward and two steps back, never able to gain a solid footing. On the flip side, we can become so attached to stability and supports that they become constraints, preventing us from evolving and remaining flexible. Today, get curious about where you feel safe or unsafe (physically, emotionally, spiritually, or intellectually) and where you feel stuck. If you imagined breaking free from stagnation, what might that look like, and what thoughts and feelings arise?

Color: Red

Location: Base of the spine

Crystal: (wear, carry, or meditate with): Garnet, hematite, red calcite, jasper

Food and Drink: Red potatoes, red beans or lentils, radishes, beets, rooibos or hibiscus tea, dandelion root for deep grounding

Daily Chakra Healing (Part 1) Introduction

The seven major chakras are vital pieces of your energetic puzzle, and what better way to boost their health than by devoting and entire day of the week to each one? Start each day with the following mediation, plugging in details from the individual chakra sections below [Each Chakra will have its own post].

Sit in a comfortable position and bring awareness to the area of the chakra, noticing any sensations. Does it feel open, heavy, jumpy? IS it east or difficult to connect with this area?Imagine the color of the chakra filling this area, and say three times, “I heal and balance my (name of chakra).” Ponder the qualities for the day, and take a few minutes contemplating how they appear in your life. Be open to thoughts, feelings, image, and other clues, and when you’re done, briefly journal your insights. Continue checking in through out the day.

The colors, crystals, and foods listed here serve as reminders of the focus chakra as well as spiritual allies in their own right. For example your red bracelet might remind you of your root quality of safety during a work meeting, which differs from your root chakra experience during yoga, and comparing the two leads to an aha moment. As allies, rose quartz could trigger heart chakra insights, while a sniff of rosemary might bring to mind and important memory in relation to your solar plexus. Keep in mind that this is less about isolating definitive answers and more about letting one question lead you to the next, like spiritual breadcrumbs that take you deeper into self-awareness.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, May 3 to Saturday, May 9, 2020

All Signs

We’re staying at home, for everyone’s good, but it’s tough. First there was novelty, funny jokes and clever videos. Then the frustration of living in each other’s faces. Then boredom, angst and ultimately depression. But it’s encouraging that Saturn is in Aquarius. It was in Capricorn from 2018 until the end of March promoting worldly power, status and authority. Saturn in Aquarius is different. It bodes well for science, social justice and a concern for impartial truth. Yes, Saturn will return to Capricorn in July until mid-Dec.; but after that, Saturn will stay in Aquarius until 2023. Let’s take a look at what this means, because regardless of how you might feel – you do have a future. It’s okay to buy green bananas.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This week you are focused on earnings and cash flow and how to nail a new income stream or perhaps a new job? This could be successful; keep working on this. Since 2010, you have been more focused on your career and outer achievements. Also, from 2010 to 2012, it was not an easy time for partnerships and relationships. (As well as 2014!) Opportunities in higher education, the media, publishing, medicine and the law were solid in 2015 to 2018. After that, you had a chance to shine! And yes, this wonderful window of achievement is still operating for you. Identify what works. Let go what doesn’t work. Work with what you’ve got.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This continues to be a powerful time for you while the Sun and Mercury are in your sign. This week you might want to improve your appearance as well as your education and knowledge of the world. This will be wise and timely because even though you were busting your buns around 2010 to 2012-13, since then you have come far! Between 2015-2018, things were challenging because debt was heavy and you had to get along with less. But 2018 was a game changer. Since then, you have been preparing for the “big-time,” which will arrive in 2021. Therefore, learn a new language, get further education, get new skills, in other words, you get performance ready! (“How do I dress for success?”)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Things are hit and miss. With Venus in your sign, you’re charming and diplomatic. You enjoy schmoozing on line – whatever. However, the Sun and Mercury are hiding in your chart, which means you’re happy to keep things low key. Around 2008-2011, you worked hard to create a home base for yourself. Then around 2012-2015, you were busting your buns at work. In the last few years, many of you have received less from your partner or external sources, and this has thrown you back on your own two feet. The result of this is you’re learning how to be independent and take care of yourself. Fortunately, this year, goodies and favours have started to come your way! This will continue, so keep your pockets open!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

For the last few years, partnerships and close relationships have been challenging. (And that was before lockdown. Oy!) Fortunately, things have eased since Jupiter entered Capricorn this year. Prior to this time, you were busting your buns at work from 2015 to 2018. But hey, you got a lot done. In fact, in 2019, many of you got a better job or improved your existing job. Glory Hallelujah! Take note that next year, in 2021, things will come easily to you, especially in material terms. It will be relatively easy to get a loan or a mortgage. You might inherit. Your partner might earn more. You actually have much to look forward to! Meanwhile, enjoy interacting with friends on Zoom or social distancing on backyard decks. (“Where can I pee?”)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

The Sun is still at high noon in your chart along with Mercury, which makes you look great in the eyes of everyone, especially bosses and VIPs. Don’t hesitate to spout your views because others will listen. The not-so-good news is that fiery Mars is still opposite your sign, which make you annoyed with partners and close friends. (Be patient.) You have worked hard in the last few years, especially since 2018, because you have had a lot on your agenda, perhaps to the extent it was overwhelming. Fortunately, this year brings opportunities to improve your existing job or get a better job. Likewise, you can improve your health! Partnerships will be cozy in 2021. Smoochie boochies!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You have lots of energy to get things done. If you’re still at work, you’re hustling! If you’re working at home or doing your own thing, you have energy. Venus at the top of your chart guarantees smooth relations with parents and bosses. Nevertheless, you’re restless. You want change and stimulation! Many of you went through a change of residence or jobs around 2012 to 2015. Following that, for the next few years, you worked to stabilize your home base. Since then, many of you have had increased responsibility with children. Others have dealt with serious concerns with love affairs. In the year ahead, you will work hard and improve your job (or get a better job).

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You feel playful and flirtatious this week. (Do with that what you will.) You gave up stuff and did some downsizing between 2008 2010 so that you could begin an entirely new cycle around 2010. A new world! Many of you had residential moves and job changes between 2015 in 2018 when things were uncertain and you had to go with the flow. In the last few years, your primary aim has been to improve your home and solidify your base so that you feel secure for yourself and your family. This is a good year to make home improvements or buy things to make your home more attractive. Some of you might explore real-estate opportunities. If so, you will profit.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Please get more rest and sleep because your energy is flagging this week. However, while the Sun is opposite your sign, this is your chance (perhaps the best all year) to have an objective understanding of your style of relating to those who are closest to you. It’s tougher to kid yourself. (Which we all do.) Increased activity and chaos at home are challenging; however, the placement of Jupiter at this time in your chart boosts your optimism and makes it easy to take a positive point of view about everything. This is your saving grace. Next year, you have great opportunities to improve where you live or find better digs. It will also be a good year to explore real-estate opportunities.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You’re in work mode, which is why you’re accomplishing so much! You are hands-on at work or with anything you choose to do. You’ve also got moneymaking ideas percolating in the back of your mind. Relations with partners and close friends are sweet because fair Venus is opposite your sign. Admittedly, Mars makes you forceful in your communications with others. This continues to be a great year for you to boost your earnings or increase your wealth and your assets. This will be good timing because in the next few years, you are looking at a residential move or a change of jobs or both. Start packing your bags.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Despite whatever difficulties you are undergoing, this is a lighthearted, playful time for you according to your chart. In the bigger picture, you have divine protection this year because lucky Jupiter is in your sign. This blessing is also giving you a more positive attitude about everything, which is why you have been a source of strength for others. Right now, you want to earn money because you’re spending it! No worries because next year in 2021, you will increase your assets and feel richer. Your health is favoured now but go easy on the sweets. (A balanced diet is not a cookie in each hand.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Home, family and your private life continue to be your main focus. Family discussions are taking place along with home repairs. Fortunately, with fiery Mars in your sign, you have the energy to pull this stuff off. Furthermore, the placement of Venus in your chart now promotes good relations and fun, lighthearted activities with kids. This year has been a time of downsizing and letting go of people, places and possessions. You’re clearing the decks because next year you might strike off in a new direction. One thing is certain, things will be positive because lucky Jupiter will be in your sign for the first time in 12 years. Yay me!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Despite the restrictions that you are undergoing, this is a harried, busy time for you. Many of you are taking short trips. You’re also conversing with siblings and relatives. This is why you feel mentally and physically busy! Fortunately, things at home are smooth because Venus introduces a nice vibe. In fact, you will enjoy redecorating projects and making things look prettier. Something is gnawing at you in the back of your mind. Don’t let this overtake you. In many ways, this is a popular time for you, which means you will have meaningful talks with friends and groups (online or over the back fence). Embrace ambitious goals!
