Your Perfect Summer Style, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
This is the time of year that you have been longing for, Aries, and you are ready to step into summer in all of your fiery fabulousness, as you should!
For the Aries woman, you want to play up the feminine graces, and instead of your usual wild popping colors and lines, think sweet and flowy fabrics that give hints to your awesome figure. The color of the season for both men and women Aries is purple. Try a shade of lavender or lilac, while the Aries man could try a bold plum.
Instead of choosing bold prints, either men or women Aries, choose clothes that are solid colors, and make your wild statements this summer with accessories. Famous Aries to model your style after are Peyton Manning, Lady Gaga, and Emma Watson.
Most importantly, channel your “inner you.”
Elegance and indulgence are your middle names, Taurus, and that goes for men and women. Stick to the earth tones in all of your summer staples, khakis and chino shorts for the Taurus men, and long green and earthy colored maxi dresses for Taurus women.
Bring your garden to your wardrobe with wild prints, but not on your main staples. Let your accessories do the talking, Taurus.
Your big floppy hat, Jackie O shades, and scarves will be your go-to, as they always are. Timeless pieces for all Taurus’ are going to be what helps you to stand out. Crisp white shirts with a flowered skirt will bring out your Earthy Venus goddess, or for men, denim and the same style top is ruggedly sexy.
For women, matte lips and your Jackie O shades are all you need to leave the house with when it comes to your gorgeous face. Famous Taurus’ to model your style after are Adele and Queen Elizabeth!
Being symbolized by the twins, Gemini, you always have the best sense of style, and you can go either way your mood takes you. Trying adopting two personalities when it comes to your summer style. One for your inner bad boy or bad girl, and one for your good side.
Keep your day look clean and structured with pencil thin black skirts or denim with a brightly colored button down shirt. For the Gemini woman, plunge a little with the V-neck. Try stretchy fabrics that show off all of the right things, and don’t be shy with the color silver Gemini men!
Textured fabrics like leather, suede, or a little bit of rhinestone will send the message of your inner wild child. When trying to channel Gemini style this summer, think of the two very different looks in Gemini fashion icons Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, the poster girls for Gemini. This summer, you get to channel every look you want.
Go for it, Gemini.
If you haven’t splurged on you in a while, now is the time to do so. The Cancer woman should model fellow Cancerian Princess Diana’s iconic sleek look with a sexy twist in all of the watery shades that Cancer loves: mellow blues, soft pink hues, and turquoise pops in all of the right places.
Think of the sunset on the beach when you choose your colors for summer, Cancer, whether you are male or female. A new party dress, or two even, will be worth the splurge, and you won’t regret it either.
You also can get away with the odd animal print, but only in bite sized chunks. Other Cancers you can model that embody the sleek and classic looks of Princess Di include Selena Gomez and Tom Cruise.
You want to hit the ground running with bold colors that show off your fiery personality, Leo, but since that’s your usual forte, try something different.
A new haircut may be the only fashion staple you need this summer, and we’re encouraging you to go red, maybe with some fun highlights. You also want to pile on the gold whenever and wherever possible. Whatever you wear, you will attract attention, because the Sun is shining on you in abundance.
Just want to have some fun? A flirty cocktail dress for the Leo woman, or a sexy new print shirt for the Leo man will be all you need to turn heads. Sexy and saucy Leos you want to model your fashion sense after this summer include President Barack Obama and Jennifer Lopez!
The period of late spring is one of your favorite times of year, Virgo, as the spring supports your inclination to reap success from your work. You have been cautious all winter when it comes to your style, so now is your time to break the mold a little bit and show off what you got.
Simple staples are generally your thing, but this summer you are going to want to take that up a notch. Loosen your collars, shorten your hemlines, and think of yourself as the sophisticated school girl that is playing hooky on the Upper East Side. Be bold, and choose Earth tones like emerald greens. Animal prints are also in your favor for summer fun for both the Virgo man and Virgo woman.
Famous Virgos you can model your style after including Michael Jackson, and the iconic Beyonce Knowles.

Being ruled by Venus, you particularly love your bling and your luxury, and this summer is the summer for you to really bring it out, Libra.
Being an Air sign, you often want to make sure that you are crisp and clean at all times. Spice it up a little bit by adding rhinestone to your shades, your handbag, or even your white top. Libra men and Libra women can be stylish and elegant this summer with accessories such as a new watch, or a new pair of shoes. Splurge a little bit as you move into this new season, rather than reusing what you have in your closet.
Famous Librans you can model your style after including Avril Lavigne, Will Smith, and Hilary Duff.
You feel like you have suffered an extreme winter, and your style has started to show it, dear Scorpio. Perhaps you are tired of getting up every day and getting to the grind, and this is precisely why you need to amp up the wardrobe this season.
You want as many bright colors as possible in your wardrobe this summer, especially if you are single. Time to break out the cuts and the skirt lengths as well, so you can finally start getting that attention that you deserve. Cropped jackets on top of a neutral palette will be super sexy, especially for the cooler evenings you are going to want to drag out as long as you can.
Your mission, whether you are a Scorpio male or Scorpio female, is to experiment and remind the world how fun you are with your new summer wardrobe. Think bold greens, popping purples, and reds that turn heads. Famous Scorpios you can model this summer if you are stuck are Leonardo DiCaprio and Katy Perry.
High on your summer agenda should be travel and literature, Sagittarius, and you want to look that part as well. Channel two sides: be part sexy librarian by day with long bohemian skirts and peasant blouses, and then let your hair down with a pair of extra-large sunglasses by night to show off your fun side.
Bright colors in the fire shade family are also going to stoke your fancy. Orange will be the new black for Sag this year, as will poppy reds, mustard yellows, and bold bright prints that combine all of those shades. This goes for the Sagittarius man and the Sagittarius woman.
Sexy Sags you can model your style after including Taylor Swift and Brad Pitt.

You have spent the winter working diligently as usual, and even you are ready to break the mold a little bit Capricorn. It is about time!
Tropical earth tones are going to be your friend this summer. Long and flowy blouses, skirts, or dresses will cater to the Capricorn woman’s sensual and Earthy side. For the Capricorn man, you can accomplish the same goal in shirts and shorts that are lighter in fabric, and less structured than what you would wear to the office. Amp up your office look with tropical hued accents, like a turquoise tie and matching socks, or an emerald green scarf tied around your waist, instead of your neck.
Be as luxurious as you want to be, and invest in that item you have been secretly eyeing all winter. It’s time to treat yourself! Famous Capricorns you can model your style after include the royalty of Kate Middleton and the King, Elvis Presley.
When it comes to fashion, Aquarius, you don’t really fuss too much no matter what season it is. You prefer to spend your time worrying about the world at large. That’s fine, but this summer you won’t have to spend a lot of time on your look to attract the people and situations that will help you with those world-sized problems.
You can accomplish that goal by keeping it clean and classic, and keeping those lines as crisp as possible. That doesn’t mean boring. Instead, this gives you a little leeway to get those structured pencil jeans you have been craving. For the Aquarius woman, pair the jeans with a simple but off the shoulder top, and you will leave them wondering.
For the Aquarius man, try a V neck under your sport coat for a bold yet classic look. When it comes to accessorizing Aquarius, leave it to the imagination of your audience. If you do put on some bling, keep it as simple and classic as possible. A silver chain for the woman, and a vintage bracelet for the men.
Aquarians can model their summer style from Jennifer Aniston and Taylor Lautner.
Pisces, you are ready to come out of your cave and celebrate summer, and you want to do it in a style that makes you feel good.
For you, soft fabrics that are sheer and feel smooth on the skin will work in your favor From lace, to eyelet, to silk, to satin … you get the picture, there are lots of choices! Pisces men and Pisces women will do well with loose-fitting clothing over a tailored structured look, as this will lend more comfort in their mutable ways.
Choose colors that are soft as well, such as the ballet pink, or a soft blue when choosing your summer staples. Not sure what to channel? Think ethereal, fairy like and bohemian styles when working up your summer wardrobe.
Fellow Pisces you can take some clues from include Carrie Underwood, Rihanna, and Jon Bon Jovi.
So, which style will you rock this summer? All of us are extremely unique, so don’t be afraid to spice up your wardrobe in whatever way you want to. Maybe you’re a Pisces who is more drawn towards the style we’ve written about for a Capricorn. Go for it!
Embrace the summer, and have some fun.

Are you crushing and your co-worker, unsure of how to make your move? Are you experiencing misunderstandings or disagreements with your current partner? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, this guide is for you.
You’ve probably heard of astrological compatibility, a concept that typically looks at the Sun signs of two individuals to determine whether or not their personalities will mesh well together. But, did you know that your natal chart – or birth chart – contains much more information that is useful when exploring your love life?
In fact, one of the most important signs in your chart – your Moon sign – can be just as effective, if not more, at determining astrological compatibility.
This is because your Sun sign represents the core of your personality, and who you are on the deepest levels. However, your Moon sign is connected to your emotions, and how you relate to others emotionally, which are both important factors in a romantic relationship.
When you understand the dynamic between your Moon sign and the Moon sign of another person, it’s easier to understand that person on an emotional level.
Today we’re going to look at the Moon sign and its effect on our romantic relationships, allowing you to discover even more about the dynamics between you and your crush, or your partner.
Make sure to get your free birth chart reading done so that you can discover your unique Moon sign!
How Does the Moon Affect Your Love Life?
Think about the beginning of a new romantic relationship, the feelings involved, the butterflies you get when you see that person or receive a new text message from them. These feelings stem from your emotional center. And while logic and reason may have their place in romance, emotions are what tend to govern our hearts and our feelings about another individual.
The Moon is the celestial body that governs your emotions and how you choose to share (or hide) your feelings with others. The personality traits and characteristics of a certain zodiac sign still apply in this position, however they shift from the spirit to the heart.
For instance, Leo is a sign that is warm, friendly, and outgoing. When someone’s Moon sign falls under Leo, they’re likely to share their feelings with their loved ones enthusiastically, and they don’t shy away from public displays of affection. Conversely, someone with a Moon in Aquarius may be hesitant to participate in public displays of affection or the sharing of emotions.
This is why it’s so important to look at more than one sign in your chart when determining compatibility with someone. Your Sun signs might flow beautifully together; but, if your Moon signs disagree, it can be a challenging union.
And when two Moon signs flow well together, you can expect a relationship that is overflowing with empathy, understanding, and passion.

Most & Least Compatible Moon Signs
Now that you know a bit more about how the Moon affects your love life, let’s take a look at some of the most and least compatible matches between Moon signs.
Most Compatible Moon Signs
Aries & Leo
Because these are both Fire signs, a union between an Aries Moon and a Leo Moon can be fiery, passionate, and adventurous.
Aries is a self-motivated, driven person who goes after what they want in life – no matter the cost. Leo’s playful spirit helps Aries lighten up and have a little fun. On the other hand, Aries helps Leo focus and stay motivated, allowing them to follow through with their plans.
The only downside here is the potential for anger or emotional outbursts, but Aries and Leo are both good at calming down almost as quickly as they became upset.
Sexually, this union is powerful and passionate, thanks to the Fire energy flowing through both parties. If Aries can learn to be less serious and Leo can pay a bit more attention in the bedroom, this can be a wildly fulfilling union.
Cancer & Taurus
While Cancer is a Water sign and Taurus is an Earth sign, these two Moon signs join to form a deeply loyal bond – and they actually have quite a bit in common.
Both Taurus and Cancer appreciate a beautiful home where they feel surrounded by comfort and security. Additionally, these signs share a desire for financial stability and success. Taurus and Cancer can appreciate a loving, peaceful home where each party is dedicated to the other.
It may not seem like the most passionate union, but this sense of peace and stability brings both Cancer and Taurus joy.
Intimacy between these two will be deep and loving. If you crave comfort and appreciation in your relationships, this will be a perfect pairing.
Gemini & Libra
These Air signs are the social butterflies of the zodiac. Both Libra and Gemini Moons love to spend time near people in deep, stimulating conversations.
This couple will never get bored, as there are always ideas and visions flowing through their consciousness – and they will enjoy sharing these ideas with one another. Gemini and Libra tend to relate their emotions through thought and communication rather than depth of feeling, and this couple will find comfort in the lack of over-the-top displays of emotion.
The keyword for this couple is “fun,” which is exactly what their romantic and sexual life will entail.
Capricorn & Virgo
As Earth Signs, both Capricorn and Virgo Moons are responsible and grounded. They don’t take their feelings out on the people around them, but rather they try to find appropriate outlets for emotions and solutions to their problems.
These two Moon signs will work together to overcome any obstacle that stands in their way. And while this union may not possess a sense of emotional passion, that’s the way these two Moon signs prefer it.
Your shared love of Mother Nature means you’ll be spending a lot of time outdoors together. There is a sense of comfort and stability in their love life that helps these two form a secure, committed attachment.

Sagittarius & Aquarius
Sagittarius is a Fire sign, full of passion and creativity, while Aquarius is an intellectual, independent Air sign.
Both Sagittarius and Aquarius Moons desire a deep sense of freedom and individuality in their relationships – neither one of these individuals cares to be tied down. This couple enjoys their alone time, and doesn’t feel insecure when they aren’t together each and every day.
As the two signs of the zodiac that are most likely to travel, this pair can enjoy adventures all over the world together.
While neither Moon sign is likely to adore public displays of affection, their chemistry is fully realized when they are at home alone with one another.
Pisces & Scorpio
These two Moon signs share the common ruling element, Water. As such, both Pisces and Scorpio tend to experience their emotions on a deeper level than most other signs.
When these two form a couple, you can expect open, honest communication, and the respect of one another’s feelings. Pisces and Scorpio Moons are both creative and intuitive, giving them an advantage over other unions – it’s almost as if they can read each other’s minds.
While there may be jealousy within this relationship, you should be able to talk to each other lovingly about it.The keyword in this union is “romance,” and you can expect lots of it.
Least Compatible Moon Signs
Cancer & Aquarius
This pairing can bring disagreements and misunderstandings, as these two Moon signs relate emotionally in very different ways.
Whereas Cancer likes to talk openly about their emotions and digest them thoroughly, Aquarius would prefer to think them through and quickly move on. Cancer Moons are affectionate and romantic, while Aquarius Moons prefer a more subtle approach.
Capricorn & Leo
A Capricorn Moon’s grounded, responsible nature can seem stuffy, even boring, to a Leo Moon. Leo wants to go out on the town and have some fun, but Capricorn knows there are chores to be done at home, and prefers tending to those responsibilities.
Likewise, Capricorn Moon may be turned off by Leo Moon’s carefree approach to life. While these two may enjoy flirting, a sustainable, long-lasting relationship may be difficult to maintain.
Pisces & Libra
While these two Moon signs are friendly and often romantic, their common interests are limited. Libra is all about balance and diplomacy, while Pisces prefers romance and daydreaming.
Libra’s detached relationship to emotions may hurt the feelings of sensitive Pisces. While these two may be able to work things out with lots of patience, it can be difficult for them to relate to one another on a deep, emotional level.
Looking Beyond Astrological Compatibility
Astrology can absolutely help you determine whether or not you might mesh with someone, but there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to astrological compatibility.
Two Moon signs might be completely compatible, and end up not getting along at all. On the other hand, if two people are willing to work hard enough, they can make nearly any union flow smoothly. The point is, don’t panic if you didn’t find yourself and your partner or crush listed as the most compatible Moon signs in existence – you can still work it out!
This guide is meant to give you the basic information regarding compatibility and Moon signs, as well as help you understand how to relate to your partner emotionally based on their Moon sign. If you want to know how to connect with someone on the deepest level possible, read up on their Moon placement to learn about how they prefer to relate emotionally.
Full Moons represent the completion of a lunar cycle, but they’re also about the completion of something in our own lives. If you started a new project, relationship, or manifestation ritual during the previous New Moon, those things will be starting to complete or fulfill themselves during the Full Moon. This lunar phase represents the beginning of a fresh new cycle, allowing you to release or let go of things from the recent past that no longer suit you.
A Full Moon in Aquarius is currently approaching, bringing us closer to the end of this lunar cycle and the beginning of a new phase in our lives.
Aquarius is a Fixed sign ruled by Air, and those falling under this sign will feel the effects of this Full Moon more deeply and intensely than other signs. Additionally, other Air signs – Gemini and Libra – will also experience this Full Moon more profoundly. However, every zodiac sign can harness the energy of this Full Moon in Aquarius and use it to their fullest advantage!
Upcoming Full Moon Dates
The Full Moon in Aquarius occurs on August 3rd of this year.
The following Full Moon will be in Pisces, and it takes place on September 2nd. Following that is a Full Moon in Aries occurring on the 1st of October. This year, we’ll see two Full Moons in October, with one taking place on Halloween – something that only happens about once every 20 years.
This Full Moon on Halloween will be in the sign of Taurus.

Key Themes of The Full Moon in Aquarius
Each planet takes on the qualities, traits, and themes of the sign (or constellation) that it’s currently traveling through. Therefore, when the Full Moon takes place in Aquarius, you can expect the traits and themes of this sign to enter into our emotional lives.
Because Aquarius is an Air sign and the Moon rules over our emotions, you can expect your emotions to take on a rational, thoughtful quality. In other words, you may find yourself thinking about your feelings more than actually experiencing them. Aquarius asks you to set your emotions aside and think things through carefully.
What the Full Moon in Aquarius Means for You
When the Full Moon falls in Aquarius, you can expect any eccentric aspects of your personality to be amplified.
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, a planet that admires eccentricity and rebellion over blind compromise. Uranus brings unexpected energy and shirks tradition, encouraging you to let your freak flag fly.
An Aquarius Full Moon urges you to anticipate the unexpected – especially when it comes to your emotions.
2) Humanitarian Energy
Aquarius is a sign that wants to change the world one action at a time. Aquarians want to use their energy for the good of humanity. And when the Full Moon is in this sign, you’ll begin to take on this energy as well.
The Full Moon’s influence can be felt for a couple days before and after the Full Moon takes place – so you may spend this week trying to determine how you can use your own talents and skills to help make the world a better place.
3) Innovation & Big Ideas
This sign represents the brains of the zodiac. Think of Aquarius as the Einstein of the astrological calendar. The Air element ruling Aquarius stirs your thought process and helps you come up with creative new ideas, while Uranus encourages thinking outside the box.
When these aspects come together, you may receive flashes of insight from the Universe. Brilliant thoughts are flowing through you during this time, so pay attention to them!
4) Search for New Truth & Perspective
The airy nature of Aquarius is always seeking new information and nuggets of wisdom in this life.
This transit will encourage you to seek truth and explore the hidden areas of life. Uranus, Aquarius’ ruling planet, is a lover of spontaneity and new experiences, encouraging you to see things from a different point of view.
Aquarius may not be considered the most romantic sign in the zodiac, as they tend to keep their feelings to themselves, and they aren’t the biggest fans of public displays of affection.
However, this sign is loyal to their loved ones, even if they approach romance from a logical point of view.
During this Full Moon, your sense of romance will take on this logical stance, allowing you to view your relationship from a new angle. This logical stance may help you realize why you care for and appreciate your loved ones so deeply, allowing you to express your loyalty in new, exciting ways.
8 Ways to Use the Aquarius Full Moon’s Energy
You might be wondering what the best way to take advantage of this Full Moon is. If you aren’t exactly sure how to properly channel the energy of the Full Moon in Aquarius, here are a few tips that will help you make the most of this lunar phase.
1) Make Time for Your Loved Ones (And Yourself)
Aquarians are fiercely independent, but they also appreciate time spent with friends and family. This sign enjoys group activities and projects, making this an excellent time to share moments of joy and appreciation with your friends and family.
However, you can’t neglect the part of yourself that needs alone time to rest, relax, and recharge. Follow your intuition – when you feel like socializing, call your loved ones; but if you need a moment to yourself, take it.
2) Practice Self-Restraint
Because Uranus encourages spontaneity, you may find yourself experience random cravings or bursts of unexpected energy. This spontaneous vibe can make you feel a bit wild, like you’re not sure what to expect from yourself.
This can lead to indulging and impulsive behavior, and it’s crucial that you learn to reign that energy in.
Like a wild horse running through an empty field, this energy can take you on an unexpected ride. Try to take a moment or two to think things through before making any decisions or taking action.
3) Focus on Projects Rather Than Problems
The Full Moon brings a lot of energy, and it typically surrounds our emotions. With the airy, intellectual nature of Aquarius affecting you, you may feel the urge to think or even ruminate about your problems. And if you allow yourself to fall into this cycle of overthinking, you may end up taking your frustrations out on those around you.
But this is the time to start focusing on the solutions rather than the problems themselves.
Allow the intelligent energy of this Full Moon to wash over you, helping you focus on new projects rather than the things that are bothering you. Turn that frustration into motivation!
4) Spread the Love
The humanitarian nature of Aquarius makes this the perfect time to be generous and kind to those around you. When you spread the love and share your positive energy with the world, you’ll start to feel more positive and supported yourself. When you share your love and light with the world, you can expect it to come back around to you.
Practice generosity right now for a generous helping of good karma in the future.
5) Seek Truth & Knowledge
All this intellectual energy encourages you to gather more information about life, to seek knowledge and wisdom in all things. Additionally, seeking truth and knowledge can serve as a distraction from negativity or frustrating emotions.
Use this time to study and learn about things that you find interesting, expanding your mind and helping you grow both mentally and emotionally.
6) Embrace Your Quirky Side
We all have little habits or facets of our personality that are a bit quirky, or even weird. This is the time to embrace those parts of yourself, and practice gratitude for the interesting and unique traits that make you so wonderful.
Be as weird as you want to be right now – make up new sounds or dances, record yourself doing a one-person skit, or write a science-fiction themed short story.
It doesn’t matter how you embrace your quirks, as long as you aren’t holding yourself back.
7) Reconsider Your Values
Aquarius is a sign that urges you to stand up for what you believe in – which is much easier when you know exactly what it is that you believe in. This is the perfect time to reassess your values to determine if they’re still working for you.
The world is changing right now, especially as we move into the Age of Aquarius. Allow yourself and your beliefs to change alongside the world, growing and shifting with the times.
Re-evaluating your values can also help you understand the ways in which you’ve grown as an individual, encouraging you to practice gratitude for your personal growth and transformation.
8) Use This Aquarius Full Moon Ritual
Aquarius is an Air sign, and when the Full Moon is in Aquarius, you will benefit from purifying the air around you.
While it sounds simple and self-explanatory – we all want clean air, after all – many of us forget about the benefits of cleansing your home and the sacred space within it. The following suggestions can be done in any order and will work to cleanse your home and help you feel more peaceful.
Light Candles or Use Essential Oils
Light your favorite candles, especially those with teal, blue, or aquamarine colors in it. Or, try diffusing your favorite essential oils throughout your home. (If you have pets, just be sure to research which essential oils are safe to use around animals.)
You can also fill a spray bottle with filtered water, a few drops of essential oils like lavender or peppermint, and small chunks of clear quartz or citrine to create a healing, uplifting room spray.
Use Sage or Palo Santo
Another great way to clear the energy in your home is by using sage or Palo Santo. It may seem counter intuitive, but certain types of smoke actually work to clear negative energy from the home.
Just remember that Palo Santa will clear negative energy only, while sage clears all energy – both positive and negative.
Depending on the type of cleansing you prefer, light a stick of Palo Santo or a bundle of sage and carry it throughout your home, allowing the smoke to fill and cleanse each room. Be sure to waft the smoke into corners and doorways for the best results.
Clearing the air of stale or negative energy in your home will also help you clear your mind, promoting mental and emotional clarity.
Take Time to Journal
The Full Moon is also a great time to purge any emotions, thoughts, or beliefs that might be holding you back right now. Grab a notebook and a pen and write down any negative feelings or ideas that are bothering you, and then imagine these feelings flowing out of your body and away from you.
Use Crystals or Herbs
There are also many crystals that can help you clear your home and your mind of negativity:
- Clear Quartz is a master healer that absorbs negative energy and heals emotional wounds.
- Amethyst is an emotionally soothing stone that will help you feel stronger in the face of overwhelming emotions.
- Aquamarine connects to the energy of Aquarius, clears the mind, and makes it easier for you to communicate your thoughts and feelings to others.
- Hematite is a grounding stone that will help you remain calm and peaceful when dealing with emotional upsets.
- Tiger’s Eye will protect you and prevent you from taking on the negative energy of others.

Additionally, there are many herbs that are beneficial to work with right now, including rosemary, sage, valerian, and mint.
Use the Energy of the Full Moon to Your Advantage
The energy of any Full Moon can feel overwhelming – but you’re not alone with these feelings. We all feel a bit more tender when the Moon is at its fullest, causing our emotions to spill over. And with the unconventional, surprising energy of Aquarius influencing this Full Moon, you shouldn’t be surprised when unexpected, spontaneous emotions begin to flow.
But, if we can all learn to accept this zany energy and use it for good, this can be a healing time that encourages growth of the spirit and transformation of emotional energy.
Keep your heart and your mind open to new possibilities right now. Expect the unexpected. Don’t judge yourself or others during this time, because we’re all experiencing similarly confusing, emotionally charged energy right now. If you can learn to accept and appreciate this energy, this can be one of the most healing moments of your life.
Let the energy of Aquarius and spontaneous Uranus wash over you and fill your life with exciting surprises.

Transit: Mars in Aries (square) Jupiter in Capricorn. We will have an opportunity present itself, or something special will surface with this influence. It will be up to us to have the courage to accept it and move beyond our old patterns that really don’t serve our goals.

Not only is Jupiter, the biggest planet in your solar system, it is also one of the most liked. The truth is, Jupiter is just so likeable and lucky that you can’t help but smile when you think of it!
If you imagine the planets as people, you can get a good idea of what Jupiter is like. Take a look at the schoolyard:
Mars is like that fiery kid everyone’s afraid of, but who’ll stand up against the bullies when everyone else is too scared to; Venus is the pretty, popular one with dozens of admirers; Neptune is the dreamy one who goes around with a smile on their face, quoting from books and spouting poetry; Mercury talks lots and acts on it; Uranus is the wacky-looking one who’s obsessed with gadgets; Pluto is the strange kid in the corner who wears all black and likes to talk about morbid things; Saturn is the stern and boring one who sends everyone up when they’re breaking the rules; and Jupiter?
Jupiter is that happy, smiley kid who gets along with everybody, is always happy to help, and brings a ray of sunshine wherever they go! Whether you’re the tough one, the popular one, the odd one, the stern one – you simply cannot help but like Jupiter.
This is why Jupiter is known as a benefic planet. It is known to bring good fortune and expansion. Wherever Jupiter is in your natal chart is often where you will experience the most fortune.

About Jupiter: The Lucky Planet
Jupiter is the largest planet, and so its effects on our lives are humongous. As the “God of the Gods,” he is the keeper of the big picture. In Greek mythology, Jupiter was aligned with Zeus, the king of gods.
Jupiter & Money
Jupiter rules gain and increase, which makes it an excellent ally in money matters.
Jupiter also gives clues as to where you are most likely to make your fortune. For example, if you have Jupiter in Pisces, then this combination means that wealth will come to you through showing benevolence and compassion to others.
If Jupiter is in your second house, then this is extra lucky for you, as this is the house concerning money matters.

Jupiter & Love
Since Jupiter is the planet of expansion and growth, it’s a wonderful companion to have when you’re trying to catch someone’s eye.
If Jupiter falls in your fourth or seventh house, you may experience benevolence and closeness in your relationships. The fourth house is the house of the home, and the seventh house is the house of relationships.
Jupiter thrives here because it can expand its love and guidance to others.
The Positions of Jupiter
Sign of Dignity: Sagittarius & Pisces
These are the signs ruled by Jupiter.
Jupiter bestows optimism, adventure, and the desire for freedom to Sagittarius, while Pisces gets the bulk of his kindness and benevolence.
All of these traits are shown in the Tarot card, Temperance, which represents Jupiter’s qualities at their best – the aiming of a higher ideal and merging differences as one.
Sign of Detriment: Gemini
Jupiter is detrimental in Gemini, which is opposite Sagittarius.
Jupiter can struggle in Gemini more than any other sign because Gemini keeps presenting Jupiter choices, and Jupiter struggles to find answers to match its ideals.
Sign of Exaltation: Cancer
Jupiter is exalted in Cancer and is very happy here!
In the sign of this nurturing crab, Jupiter can expand on all the watery goodness that Cancer possesses. Jupiter in Cancer makes one more loving, kind, and generous than they already are.
Sign of Fall: Capricorn
Jupiter is in fall in Capricorn, which is opposite Cancer. Jupiter struggles in Capricorn, which is ruled by strict Saturn.
Jupiter is all about freedom and expansion, while Saturn is about restriction and limitation. Therefore, in Capricorn, Jupiter’s influence is limited, and there can be difficult struggles. However, as the person grows older, they learn to work with Jupiter and find a balance between freedom and restriction.
Jupiter’s Major Planetary Aspects
During various times of the year, Jupiter opposes many planets, which can be challenging for Jupiter.
Opposition transits are usually challenging. When a planet opposes Jupiter, Jupiter’s natural energies are stifled. There may be trouble expressing oneself freely or experiencing restriction of some kind.
Jupiter direct is always a welcome event because it means Jupiter has come out of retrograde, which can slow down and delay its progress.
Jupiter direct frees Jupiter’s energies, and we can reflect on our wealth, abundance, and happiness. We may also experience freedom from negative feelings or emotions that have been weighing us down.
When Jupiter squares off to a planet, this is not always the best news. Jupiter’s negative qualities are triggered, such as extravagance and a lack of stability or focus.
During a Jupiter square transit, it’s important to maintain an inner balance, so you don’t get thrown off by the competing and conflicting energies.
Jupiter trine is a lovely aspect and enhances Jupiter’s natural qualities. When Jupiter trines with another planet, fortune and peace are usually guaranteed.
Often, it means finding peace and harmony during conflicting times.
Jupiter conjunct often promises good times as two planets merge to make one and bring out the best of each other.
Even where Jupiter is conjunct with a conflicting planet – like Saturn – the upheaval that is experienced shall pave the way to better things.
Jupiter sextile is not as powerful as Jupiter trine but is still a very good aspect to experience.
Sextile is about opening paths to growth, and as Jupiter is the planet of expansion and growth, when he sextiles another planet, then growth (especially of the spiritual kind) is on the way.
Jupiter retrograde indicates a powerful time of reflection and often brings about great change, especially in finance and relationships. Jupiter retrograde is not always easy but brings about the changes that are necessary to move forward.
This transit happens every year and lasts around four months. When Jupiter turns retrograde, we are encouraged to focus on money matters, spruce up our learning skills, and exercise moderation.
It’s important we don’t do things in excess, engage in destructive spending, narrow our ways of thinking (such as joining a cult or committing to one zealous frame of mind), and be lazy. These are all signs of Jupiter’s “dark side,” and we are susceptible to the shadow side of this planet during this time.
With Jupiter retrograde, there is a danger of being excessive, self-indulgent, and neglectful, especially of the physical body and money matters. We can become careless, and then, when Jupiter turns direct again, we think, “Oh no – what did I do?”

Jupiter return occurs every twelve years, and this is when Jupiter will return to the place he started in when you were born. In Chinese Astrology, Jupiter will return every year that your sign dominates.
So if you were born in the Year of the Rat, Jupiter would return in the next Year of the Rat, and the next one, and the next one …
There is a misconception that Jupiter is the planet of luck that Jupiter return automatically means it will be a lucky time. But as a matter of fact, sometimes Jupiter must shatter current foundations to make way for better ones.
If something during this twelve-year period is restricting you and hindering you from progress, Jupiter return will tear it down so that you can truly expand and become a better version of yourself. This is sometimes a painful process, but it is a necessary one.
Think of what you went through at age 12, then 24, then 36, and so forth. Significant changes and thinking patterns happen to break down a new structure and make way for a new one.

Look to Jupiter for Luck!
Jupiter is a benevolent planet, and everyone loves Jupiter!
The largest planet in our solar system also rules Thursday, so if you want a little bit of extra luck, schedule something for that day.
Remember, don’t get too cocky with Jupiter’s benevolent energy! One of the downsides to a benefic planet is that the individual can become careless or lazy, failing to harness their gifts and talents to the fullest extent because things just happen easily for them.
We see this with people who have a Grand Trine, which, while highly fortunate, can backfire when the individual allows themselves to become lazy and indulgent.
Next time you look up at the sky, say a bit thank you to our friend Jupiter.
His influence truly is one of benevolence, compassion, and higher thinking. We can learn a lot from him. Wherever Jupiter falls in your birth chart, focus on this area, and if you need help, just ask him!

Beautiful November rising, the powerful “11” vibration of self-mastery, descending into the final act of 2020 and the restoration of our soul foundation.
This month brings us into core alignment through the mirror of oneness, representing the final stages of alchemical transformation. Mystical portals open up during the month that possesses ancient powers and streams forth energy for personal growth and success.
November is a month of major transition when the Northern Hemisphere shifts from fall to winter. A reminder that as the leaves fall, new seeds become buried in the ground during the cold winter, rooting and preparing to bloom anew in spring.
The month starts on a powerful note a day after the dynamic Taurus Full Moon and Sun Uranus opposition. We’ve been experiencing rapid changes as we fully ground in the new Earth paradigm. We had to dig ourselves so deep this year in healing, so we could root securely in Mother Earth and allow our authentic self to rise through the darkness.
All souls on the planet are undergoing an amazing transformation as we awaken to our authentic state and shed the past’s limitations. Shifting into the final phase of 2020, it’s important to breathe, ground, and relax. We are clearing lifetimes of karma and entering into a new cycle aligned with our soul’s purpose.
Many of us have been training for this shift, and now here we are, leaving our energetic mark on this physical realm, grounding, and restoring the template of unity consciousness.
Let’s explore some of the amazing transits creating energetic waves in November.
Keep track of the stars and all of the upcoming transits with our free November 2020 astrology calendar!
November 1, 2020
Venus in Libra Oppose Chiron in Aries, Healing the Wounded Heart
This aspect brings our attention to deeply embedded wounds with our decision-making process and evaluating function, along with wounds within our interpersonal relationships. With all the shadow work that was required this October, Venus, and Chiron connect for you to get down to the bottom of your heart, clear the debris, and ask yourself these questions:
Do you love yourself, wholeheartedly? Flaws and all? Are you willing to accept the shadows, not as a driver of fear or a song of pain, but as the key to your success and victory?
The energy suggests that underlying insecurities are present and play a major role in your self-doubt and self-worth. Allow the fire of purification from Chiron in Aries to burn through old templates of self-doubt and restore your inner faith.
November 3, 2020
Mercury Direct (Libra 25 Degrees)
The revealer of shadows and truth, Mercury stations direct in Libra but remains in his shadow for a two week period. During this time, expect for mental fog to slowly subside, granting clarity and relief. Once Mercury fully regulates his orbit, you will begin to feel an increase of energy and a spike in your intuition.
Don’t jump to conclusions or make fast decisions. Continue to use this time as a period for inner reflection and attunement. Mercury moves back to Scorpio on November 10th. Remember that Mercury stations retrograde at least 3 times a year. He is the innermost planet, the function of our lower mind.
Mercury retrogrades are an amazing period for re-attunement, recharging, and reflecting.
November 9, 2020
Venus in Libra Opposite Mars in Aries, Building the Bridge Between the Poles
After meeting with Chiron burning through the calcified walls of our heart, Venus now has a chance to meet with Mars. Mars is currently in retrograde, helping the divine masculine reclaim their righteous power and allowing the feminine to ground their inner fire.
This aspect speaks highly to the healing of soul mate and twin flame unions and the internal feminine and masculine. These two planets play a significant role in our physical archetypes and govern the ego’s relationship to our external world. Both Venus and Mars seek to build the bridge to unify the poles between men and women worldwide.
Once you can rise above gender duality and the material world, you can integrate the amazing functions of Mars and Venus to push you forward. This energy also suggests finding healthy outlets to work through anger and impulses that impose bad financial decisions and relationship problems.
November 12, 2020
Final Jupiter-Pluto Conjunction (22 Degrees Capricorn)
Two heavy hitters of this year’s grand conjunctions meet up for their final act of 2020, before the Aquarian conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn on December 21st, 2020. As we expand our limitless nature, Jupiter shines a light on Pluto’s shadows invoking transformation and expansion at the highest levels.
It’s important to move beyond the misuse of power, the greed for wealth, and the thirst for sexuality. Review the areas in which you over-expand your energy or create material obsessions. The key to this aspect is understanding that true power is source, and you are always connected to source.
When channeled for good, that power will fuel your life in positive directions. Finding a balance between the material and the spiritual world is needed. Allow the rays of Pluto to transform your inner truth and heal the dark side of the subconscious.
November 13, 2020
Venus in Libra trine Soul Star Chakra (North Node in Gemini), Sextile Earth Star Chakra (South Node in Sagittarius), Soul Opportunities
During this time, Venus gives our hearts a boost by grounding it in the future and helping us shed the past mistruths. Trine the North node. This is a great aspect of creativity, arts, and attracting all things aligned with your highest purpose.
This energy also reveals that relationships pave the path towards karmic lessons and fulfillment once learned. Stop singing songs of the past and turn on the melodies of your future.
Energy is all around us. Take the quiz: Do You Have Yin or Yang Energy?
November 14, 2020
Mars Direct (15 Degrees Aries)
Mars has journeyed a significant path this year, reclaiming his righteous power and initiating a brand new 32-year cycle. Although he remains in his shadow until the end of the year, we will gain the ability to overcome any roadblocks and harsh cardinal T-squares experienced during his retrograde when stationing direct.
Continue to ground your inner fire and use this time to fuel new goals and projects.
November 15, 2020
Scorpio New Moon (23 Degrees Scorpio), Phoenix Rising
November’s New Moon in the alluring and sensual sign of Scorpio is the dynamic transformation of “what was” to “what truly is” as we learn the art of letting go.
There is something powerful about the space we gain when we let go and release the space, which allows us to bring more light in and is ripe for potential and new possibilities. This New Moon is about healing from past conditioning influences and emotional trauma that blocks your intuitive nature.
This energy suggests a need to make peace with your emotions and explore the deeper side of self. Scorpio energy invokes our highest vision’s wisdom and the place where the soul’s light may rise. We have been through an impactful year that has helped the collective consciousness evolve.
It is time to let your power shine through, do not be afraid of who you are. There is power in every piece of you!
November 21, 2020
Venus in Scorpio (2:22 PM ET), the Awakened Heart
The doorway to our awakened state and higher consciousness opens as Venus travels into the underworld of Scorpio. We must release fears and pain trapped around our heart space, restoring our sacred heart vibrations and infinite connection to source.
One way to release those fears is to review the areas in which you obsess over intimacy and power in your relationships. Find the root cause of needing to be in control or the tendency to manipulate others. Check the ego’s defense mechanisms that cloud your judgment and cause suspicion.
This transit has the ability to transform your heart into its awakened state, bringing forth new channels of abundance and wisdom. Let the energy awaken your sensual side and let your magic soar to new heights.
Sun in Sagittarius (9:40 PM ET)
The Sun shifts into the Mutable sign of Sagittarius activating higher wisdom and a final opportunity to finish out the game right. The physical wisdom provided by Sagittarius gives us the ability to release our attachments and move beyond this realm.
Sagittarius is the Fire sign that transmutes the previous cycle and grants us the energy to start again. This season sparks a wonderful peak of abundance and optimism.
November 30, 2020
Gemini Full Moon Lunar Eclipse (8 Degrees), Confronting Self
Before we say goodbye to 2020, we have to kick off eclipse season with Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, in the Mutable sign of Gemini, activating our mental body and diamond self. Gemini represents the cosmic light that beams, revealing all that opposes duality. It brings our attention to the conscious light of the relationship between spirit and matter.
This Full Moon is about making peace with our lower self and healing our ego, bringing the mind-body connection into play as we ground our minds in our hearts. This cycle awakens Universal vision and marks the ascension point where the heart reveals the truth.
November offers us dynamic shifts that will help us gain the power and strength to close out the year on a higher vibration. It is a busy month, and while things are moving quickly, it is important to remain grounded in your actions, curb your impulses, and bring balance to your inner fire.
Everything we do from here on out sets the wave for our soul’s expression to come forth in 2021.
Remember that Magic is Flowing Through You
This season is a time of alignment, miracles, synchronicities, and an opportunity to finally shed lifetimes of baggage and karmic debris. We have started so many brand new cycles this year, and as we finish November and December, we will finally see our hard work and dedication pay off.
Follow these essential tips for November to capitalize on this new energy:
- Practice breathwork
- Ground and hydrate
- Sing and dance
- Be present and surrender to hear divine communication from higher realms.
Happy November rising!

How many times have you heard someone say, “Make a wish, it′s 11:11?”
If you’ve ever wondered why this might be, or what more this mysterious sign may be trying to communicate with you, you’re not alone. As auspicious as it is curious, the real truth behind 11:11 can be referenced to multiple meanings and different kinds of signals from the Universe.
Because of this, breaking down what this special set of numbers is trying to share can seem like a daunting task at first. After all, if there are so many different messages, it could be trying to communicate. How are you meant to know which one is for you?
Rather than have 11:11 approach us, we’re going to be approaching 11:11 first today. Read on to discover more about what 11:11 really means — and how you can use it to your advantage as well!
What Does Seeing 11:11 Mean?
First thing’s first: if you’ve been seeing this mysterious number everywhere and have been desperately trying to crack its code — breathe a sigh of relief before stressing over what it means! This is because, at its core, repeating numbers like 11:11 are a distinctly positive sign no matter what the circumstances are.
That said, there are still various meanings attributed to 11:11, and you may have to put in some elbow grease to connect with your intuition in understanding, which makes sense for you given your present situation.
Theories Behind 11:11
When you notice that you see the numbers 11:11 on your clock, or in other areas of your day to day life, many times you′ll get a little twinge of feeling something, but you just aren′t sure what. But with practice and a little more knowledge on 11:11 in your back pocket, you’ll be a pro at decoding it in no time!
1. It Ties to Numerology
In numerology, 11 is known as a master number.
The number 11 represents intuition and trusting your instincts. It also is considered to be a number having to do with duality, the mixing of our realm, and the next. For example, in practice, when someone has a life path number of 11, they are considered highly intuitive beings.
So, to see 11:11 can be a callback to this numerological understanding of the number, especially since its power is now doubled!
2. Angel Numbers
It is common lore that the sequence 111 or 1111 can be a sign that your angels or spirit guides are near. Perhaps they are trying to get your attention, making you more aware of the things going on around you (or from within you). Or perhaps you’ve been in need of assistance and have been looking for a sign yourself.
This also means your angels are paying close attention to the things you are doing and the things you need most in life at the moment. You may be at a crossroads or at a time of spiritual significance in your life’s journey, so with the sign of 11:11, you may be being called to look within for more spiritual or esoteric wisdom and knowledge.
3. It’s a Message from the Universe
Ultimately, you do not need a semi-colon or colon or any particular format to receive a message from the Universe through 11:11. It could be in a phone number with the last four digits being 1111, a store receipt, a gas tank number, a mileage number, or a house address that catches your attention for “no reason.”
What does it mean?
If not a sign from the angels or a strictly numerological tie, the sign 11:11 could be a nudge, message, or reminder from the Universe trying to pull your attention to something. However, the “something” that you’re being called to is likely to be something you and you alone can really understand.
On an intuitive and soul level, 11:11 speaks to you to remind you of something that deep within, you already know.
How to Make the Most of 11:11
Looking for more clarity and considerations on 11:11? Here are 11 things that you can do when you see the 11:11 phenomenon:
1. Stop, Look, & Listen
Abraham Hicks, the author of the Law of Attraction, says that when you see 11:11, it’s the Universe’s way of “knocking you out” to show you physical evidence of your alignment.
In other words, it’s the Universe’s way of saying, keep going, you’re doing everything exactly right, and the blessings are coming. So, when you see this little symbol, stop and appreciate it for what it is, and have faith that you’re on the right track.
2. Make a Wish!
11:11 wishes are very popular and common, and they do come true. Of course, you don’t have to wait until 11:11 to make a wish each day, but there is certainly strength in the process of utilizing the power of numbers that we know to hold spiritual significance.
In the beginning, the best way to try out the process is to be realistic and ask for little things. This way, you’ll gain more faith in the process as you watch the smaller things come true first. Similar to the law of attraction, the more gratitude you show for this gift of unconditional love that comes your way, the more often it will happen to you.
3. Write it Down
Start keeping track of when and where you see occurrences of 11:11!
If anything really awesome also happens that day, write it down. You won’t see the pattern for a while, but in a few months, take a look and see if you can discover for yourself what is trying to be communicated to you through this symbol.
Let’s say you get a letter or a text from someone you are crazy about every day that you see 11:11.
That is not a coincidence, but at the moment, it can be hard to see what exactly the “random” number is trying to tell you. With time, you will begin to understand what it means to you specifically, especially if you keep track over prolonged periods of time.
Remember though. This number is about expanding and spiritual growth, so it may not mean just one thing forever. Be open to the process of change, and use your log or journal to simply take note and keep track of that progress as needed.
4. Follow Your Intuition
No matter what you are doing right then and there, listen to your intuition at the time of seeing 11:11. Take a moment of pause, and try to take notice of the first things that came to mind as you stumbled upon the sign of 11:11.
If you have already forgotten or are struggling to decipher an intuitive knowing versus a typical inner dialogue, take a step back and wait it out rather than overthinking it.
You may spot another 11:11 soon that will guide you to the right place, so don’t stress over it!
5. Consider Your Twin Flame
Beyond the lore of angels and spirit guides, there is also the concept of twin flames that is often associated with 11:11.
Connecting twin flames is not the only purpose of 11:11 in astrology or numerology today, but the tie still exists if you feel the call in this direction. While not everyone will resonate with the concept of a twin flame and experiences may vary, it is highly likely that if you’re already acquainted with a twin flame, the sign of 11:11 may hold a special kind of significance for you.
It is perhaps a sign that your twin is out there sending you a message, or one from the Universe that you’ll be meeting them soon.

6. Embrace Leadership
Many leaders throughout history have 11 as their Life Path number (for example, Barack Obama).
In numerology, all those born with the Life Path number 11 are seen as intuitive leaders that are born with a direct purpose on earth. So when you see 11:11 appear, embrace your inner leader and consider how you can take charge of your life.
What is your first hunch when you see it? Follow it and do so with a spirit of leadership.
Especially if you’re balking at decoding what your intuition is trying to tell you, meditation is a very powerful tool if you have been given the gift of 11:11 in your day in some way. If it happens and you have the time, stop there to just close your eyes and ask the angels, Universe, or just your own inner eye to show you what it is that you need to know about that sign, at that moment, on that day.
There is always a message when 11:11 appears, and meditation is the best way to open your own channels up to receive that message.
8. Ask for What You Need
Asking questions can be a good way to use 11:11 to aid in your personal growth and spark a dialogue with yourself.
Do you really want to connect with your twin flame? Do you really want to make a life-changing job decision? Ask for signs that you are on the right path and seek out the signs that you will receive.
This works best when it becomes part of daily practice. Once you start looking for and asking the right questions, you can start to seek answers.
9. Plan Ahead
If feeling rooted and grounded in the present moment doesn’t feel like the right move, perhaps it’s time to write up that plan for the future that has been put off. Whip out a pen and paper, think up a to-do list, and write out what intuitively feels like the best move for your next journey.
Whether it’s for a project, a trip, or something else that is close to your heart’s desire, the fortuitous collision of 11:11 and your future can make some magic for the road ahead.
10. Cultivate Friendships
The 11th house in astrology revolves around friendship and relationships, so when you see 11:11, it might be the Universe telling you to take some time to let those you love know how much you care.
Sometimes we don’t always realize how much we need a shoulder to lean on until we are reminded of how helpful our interpersonal connections can be, so the Universe sends this as a helpful nudge. Alternatively, you may not be the one who is in need at the moment, but someone else in your personal circle. Either way, it’s time to reach out!

11. Embrace the Moment
If nothing else, when 11:11 appears, embrace it as a moment of possibilities. We don’t know exactly what wishes it grants. We just know all of the clues that it provides. That’s why it’s called a phenomenon. When it happens to you, don’t question it. Would you question a rainbow if it arrived?
How Will You Use 11:11?
There is ultimately an abundance of ways to approach witnessing 11:11, as well as a variety of ways that you can interpret the message or call. At the end of the day, it will be as unique of a signal as your connection to your intuition is — extremely personal and special!
However, using some of these tried and true methods of approach, or discovering alternative ways to interpret 11:11, can all contribute to furthering your understanding of this unique little set of numbers. Try them out and see if you unlock a new meaning of 11:11 at any time!

Imagine the feeling you might get holding a sparkling, luminescent piece of shimmering labradorite in your hand, or how you feel beholding the beauty and shine of a jagged but enchanting chunk of clear quartz, shining like a diamond.
There’s a good chance that you’ve heard of the many healing benefits of working with crystals – that is unless you’ve been living under a rock! Crystals are magical, mystical tools that work to heal emotions, clear mental fog, physical ailments, and so much more.
These mesmerizing crystals and gemstones are given to us by nature, dazzling in their inherently healing qualities and natural beauty.
Whether you’re working with a bright, yellow chunk of citrine to attract prosperity and abundance, or you’re carrying a healing piece of pink rose quartz in your left pocket to promote unconditional self-love, crystals and gemstones are the ultimate tools to add to your esoteric routine.
While crystals are known for cleansing and balancing energy, it’s important to remember that many crystals also absorb energy – and therefore need to be cleansed of any negativity they may have soaked up from the environment around them. If you want your healing crystals to be at their most powerful and potent, it’s crucial that you cleanse them regularly.
Crystals need your special care and attention for them to work most effectively.
There are myriad ways to cleanse your crystals, and the method you choose is really up to you! Clearing your crystals by the light of the Moon is one popular method, allowing the crystals to take in the healing light of our lunar guide.
You place the crystals you’d like to cleanse in a glass or a jar of purified water. (Some crystals dissolve in water, so do your research beforehand to make sure you don’t accidentally damage your stones.) Leave the crystal somewhere where it will rest directly under the light of the Moon and leave them there overnight. Voila! Your crystals are now cleansed and more powerful than ever.
Let’s dive in to learn more about what crystal cleansing is, when and why you should cleanse them, and how!

What is Crystal Cleansing?
Crystal cleansing is the activity of removing stagnant or negative energy from your crystals. It can be done in many ways – from cleaning with purified water to the Moon’s light and many ways in between.
One of the most popular crystal cleansing methods is bathing your crystals in purified water; however, it’s important to note that some crystals are damaged by water and should be cleansed in another way. Crystals to avoid exposing to liquids include:
- Red coral
- Fire opal
It may be easier to remember that crystals ending with “ite” should not be exposed to water. You can also do a quick internet search before cleansing your stones with water to make sure those stones are safe.

Why Should You Cleanse Your Crystals?
One of the ways that crystals work to send healing energy surging throughout our body is by absorbing negativity into their own being. Certain stones, like jet or black obsidian, absorb more energy than others, meaning that they can become muddied with negativity over time.
Crystal cleansing is the process of clearing this energy from your stones, leaving them cleansed, refreshed, and more effective at healing. Further, the more you work with and cleanse your crystals, the deeper and more harmonious your relationship with your stones becomes.
Clearing the energy from your crystals allows them to heal your own energy more efficiently.
When Should You Cleanse Your Crystals?
This question is a bit more subjective, as you can really create your own schedule for cleansing your stones. One factor is how often you use them, as the more you work with your crystals, the more frequently they’ll need to be cleared of negative energy.
If you’re making sure to cleanse your stones at least once a month, that will make sure that they’re working efficiently. This is also a perfect rule of thumb if you plan on cleansing your crystals with moonlight, as setting them out under the Full Moon each month infuses them with the wisdom and healing energy of the Moon.
On the other hand, you can also cleanse your stones anytime you feel they aren’t as bright and healing as they usually are. If you pick up a stone and it feels heavier or duller than usual, try giving it a rinse or running it through the smoke of burning sage or Palo Santo.
And if you’re short on time, there are plenty of ways to quickly cleanse your crystals in a pinch. Here are seven ways to cleanse your stones in less than 10 minutes!
7 Ways to Cleanse Your Stones in Less Than 10 Minutes
Fire is another natural element with cleansing properties, although you won’t be touching your stones to the flame. This method simply involves lighting your favorite candle and waving the stones that need to be cleared over the flickering flame’s heat.
Most stones are rather resilient, and passing them over a lit candle will not harm them.
This method infuses your stones with positive or neutral energy, just as they should be. However, like water cleansing, this method is not the best for fragile stones like cerussite.
A Quick Rinse
Water is a remarkably effective cleansing agent for stones, as it washes away any negative energy that they have acquired during your work with them. As long as you’re paying attention to which stones should not be cleansed with water, a quick rinse is efficient and easy to do.
If you happen to live near a natural body of water, you can run your crystals through the healing waters. Or, you can simply pour purified water over your crystals or allow them to soak in a bowl of it. Each crystal should be cleansed for approximately one minute.
Smudging the Stones
Have you ever allowed the smoke of burning sage or Palo Santo to cleanse the negative energy from your body? If so, did you know that this method can also cleanse stagnant or gloomy energy from your crystals as well?
Both sage and Palo Santo are ancient, mysterious cleansing tools that just happen to smell delightful. Try lighting your favorite smudging tool, letting the smoke rise, and passing your stones through that healing smoke the next time you need a quick crystal to cleanse!
Sea Salt Soaks
Sea salt, especially the Pink Himalayan variety, is a wonderful medium for cleansing your stones, and it can be done in as little as 10 minutes. Simply fill a jar or a glass with a bit of your sea salt, place your crystals over the salt, and then add another layer on top of them. Allow them to soak in the healing energy for 10 minutes, take them out, and sweep off any residual salt.
You can also place sea salt on a plate or a display case for your crystals and set them on top. Not only does this look like beautiful, original décor for your home, but it will work to keep your crystals cleansed at all times.
Don’t forget to take the crystal quiz: Which Crystal is the Key to Your Success?
If it’s a rather sunny day outside, you can utilize the restorative powers of the Sun to clarify your favorite stones. Place your stones on a mat or a tray where they have enough space to breathe and keep their energies separated.
Then, take your tray outside and place it directly under the sunlight. Wait 10 minutes and remove them for purified crystals that will work stronger than ever before! This is also an excellent time for you to soak up some sunshine for yourself.
Sound is another great way to cleanse certain energies and raise vibrations. You could try using a singing bowl to quickly cleanse and heal your crystals with sound, or you could even use your own voice as a restorative tool.
Sacred chanting can help you program your crystals and set your intentions for healing within them.
Om is a chant that is often referred to as the hymn of the Universe and is considered the “ultimate vibration,” as it is said to contain every vibration that has existed or will ever exist in the future. Try holding the crystal you need to cleanse in your right hand (which is the energetically giving side of your body) and chanting “om” for at least one minute to infuse your crystals with healing energy and raise their vibrations.
Crystals Healing Crystals
There are certain crystals that are so powerful that they never need to be cleansed, and they can even work to cleanse other crystals around them. Among these super-charged crystals are citrine, selenite, quartz, carnelian, kyanite, and amethyst.
Simply place the crystal that needs to be cleansed on a tray with one of the stones mentioned above for 10 minutes to refresh and recharge them!
It’s Time to Cleanse Your Crystals!
As you can see, there are not only many reasons why you should be cleansing your beautiful, healing crystals regularly, but also many quick and effective methods for restoring their original vibrations. When you create a routine for clearing your crystals of any negative energy they’ve absorbed, your stones can begin to work even harder for you, providing you with the healing energy you need each and every day.
It’s crucial that you work on and maintain your relationship with your stones, which includes caring for them and tending to them. And over time, your own energy and the energy of your crystals will combine to create a magical, symbiotic connection that will never fade.
Take care of your mystical crystals now so that they can take care of you for life, allowing your own energy to shine like the glittering speckles of a piece of glowing labradorite!

It’s that time again, folks! The time when the Sun dances its way into the sign of mysterious, enigmatic, sensual Scorpio – the zodiac sign that may be the most misunderstood, and perhaps the most magnetic, as we all seem to be inextricably drawn to the intoxicating energy of a Scorpio.
Since we’re in the thick of the Scorpio season, it’s also the perfect time to learn more about this sign and the astrological compatibility between Scorpios and everyone else under the Sun. After all, Scorpio is the sign most associated with sensuality and even sex, and these themes might be on your mind more in the following weeks.
It’s important to remember when learning about astrological compatibility that while our Sun signs are very important in our natal charts, it certainly isn’t the only sign that contributes to a particular relationship’s health and happiness. For a truly detailed and accurate portrait of a relationship and its potential, it’s important to contact an experienced astrologer and request a relationship synastry chart or composite chart to learn more about your true destiny with someone else.
Now that we’ve gone over the fine print let’s dive into Scorpio traits – the things that make them so unique and enchanting – as well as Scorpio compatibility with other signs!

Scorpio Personality Traits
Before we dive into this sign’s compatibility possibilities, it’s useful to look at the personality traits and aspects of Scorpio’s sign that make it so unique and lovable!
Positive Scorpio Traits
Negative Scorpio Traits
Scorpios are Water signs, meaning that they are ruled by this emotional, creative, intuitive element. They are deeply connected to their instincts, and they follow their heart in most situations rather than their head. In other words, if a Scorpio isn’t feeling it, they aren’t doing it either.
Scorpios are one of the most mysterious signs under the Sun, and they certainly enjoy their secrets. While Scorpio follows their heart, they also keep it close to their sleeve. You have to work to earn a Scorpio’s trust, but they’re loyal for life once you do.

Scorpio Love Matches & Relationship Compatibility
Certain signs seem to naturally match this sign’s vibration and energy when it comes to Scorpio compatibility. However, it’s important to remember that the Sun sign is the only sign considered here, and it’s also far from the only sign that matters for a compatible relationship.
So, if you’re crushing on a Scorpio, or you’re a Scorpio yourself, and you see a match on here that looks less-than-stellar, don’t give up hope! You may have Rising or Moon signs that make you a perfect match. That’s where an astrological advisor can help you out by creating a synastry chart!
The point is, if you’re vibrating on a positive, magnetic level with someone, don’t give up just because your Sun signs may not be a match.
Another thing that’s important when considering compatibility is astrological elements and their connection to the signs. Each sign is ruled by a certain element – Fire, Air, Water, and Earth. And signs ruled by the same element tend to get along right off the bat.
Let’s take a look at the most compatible and least compatible signs for entering into a romantic relationship with the mysterious and charming Scorpio.
The Best Love Matches for Scorpio
Scorpio Love Compatibility With Cancer
As a fellow Water sign, Cancer may be the most compatible Sun sign for Scorpio.
These signs share a depth of emotion and a knack for intuition that helps them understand each other on an intense level. The connection shared by their understanding of emotion is something that doesn’t necessarily translate to every other element – Earth signs are grounded and more focused on responsibility than feelings, Air signs tend to connect more deeply to their thoughts, and Fire signs are ruled by passion and impulse.
Cancers and Scorpios alike understand what it’s like to feel emotions on such a deep level that they feel embedded in your veins, part of the blueprint that makes you who you are.
These are two signs that acknowledge their need for emotional connection within a relationship. And the best part is that Cancer knows how to hold a grudge, so they don’t judge Scorpio’s selective refusal to let go of certain upsets.
That’s the one thing this pair will need to work on – letting things go and learning to forgive and forget. Even though they understand each other, each relationship is bound to have its ups and downs, including misunderstandings and arguments. If you both commit to finding a compromise and being more self-aware, this can be a match made in heaven.
Both Cancer and Scorpio are prone to bouts of moodiness. Cancer, the crab prefers to retreat into their shell, while the stinger of the scorpion’s tail is erect and ready to go to battle when they’re upset. Scorpio, you’ll need to learn to be gentle with sensitive Scorpio, or you may end up making them feel insecure and unwanted.
Scorpio Love Compatibility With Pisces
Pisces is the third and final Water sign of the zodiac. They’re the dreamers of the astrological calendar, with a wild imagination that can encourage them to keep their heads in the sparkling, glittering clouds of their unconscious minds. Pisces are wildly creative, and their dripping creativity will drip right onto Scorpio, encouraging them to embrace and expand their own artistic nature.
This couple would very likely enjoy a rather romantic union, filled with wandering evenings of exploration, creative nights of paints and music, and candlelit dinners with decadent wine. The sky is the limit with this pair because their combined imaginations encourage them to try new things.
Pisces isn’t afraid to share their feelings and affections with those they love – even more so than Scorpio. In fact, Pisces is a sign that is so open and honest about their feelings that it might feel like a bit much for a Scorpio. Pisces is understanding and empathetic, but they can get needy with those they love – which can be hard for some to handle.
If you both commit to open communication, setting boundaries, and talking openly about your needs, this can be a harmonious romantic relationship that you won’t soon forget.
Scorpio Love Compatibility With Capricorn
While they are an Earth sign, Capricorns are level-headed and patient, two traits that Scorpio appreciates on a cosmic level.
Scorpios possess a rather creative imagination that can lead to jealously and distrust. Simultaneously, Capricorn’s ability to stay calm and reasonable helps them wade through these periods of jealousy without losing their footing. Capricorn has a sense of self-confidence and security that allows them to thwart Scorpio’s fears while remaining loyal and faithful.
That being said, both Capricorn and Scorpio can be as stubborn as a bull. You both know how to take a problem and chew on it until there’s no flavor left, and you’ll both need to practice being able to back down for this relationship to run smoothly. But if you can learn to communicate through your issues, you’ll enjoy the harmonious vibrations of one another’s company.

The Worst Love Matches for Scorpio
Scorpio Love Compatibility With Gemini
Geminis are an Air sign, and as such, they spend a lot of time in their heads with their thoughts.
Scorpio is more aligned with their instincts and focused on taking action by following those instincts. While Scorpio has no problem making up their mind, Gemini can mull over a decision for days, weeks, even months before taking the plunge – which can drive Scorpio crazy. Gemini might take an hour to decide whether they’d rather have a smoothie or a milkshake, while Scorpio has already finished their lunch.
There’s a lack of common ground here that can lead to misunderstandings and the butting of heads. Gemini is a social butterfly, content to engage in superficial or surface conversations for the sake of socialization, while Scorpio wants to get to the bottom of things and really figure people out. Without a compatible Moon or Rising sign, this match may be fraught with tension.
Scorpio Love Compatibility With Leo
As a Fire sign, Leo is the center of attention in most situations.
They naturally gravitate towards the spotlight, which can grate on Scorpio’s enigmatic nerves. Scorpios are used to beguiling and intriguing those around them, making it more difficult to achieve when they’re fighting a Leo for the limelight. While these two might not necessarily have an outright battle for attention, this union may experience internalized resentment.
As Fixed signs, both Leo and Scorpio can be extremely stubborn.
They know what they want, and they know how they want to go about getting it – and those desires might not always match up for each person in this relationship. Furthermore, Leo has more of an outward desire for attention that Scorpio finds unnecessary or even trivial. You’ll both need to make an extra effort to understand where each of you is coming from – and respect the answer – for this union to flow smoothly.
Scorpio Love Compatibility With Libra
Libras are another Air sign that acts as one of the most prominent go-with-the-flow social butterflies of the zodiac.
Their carefree attitude may clash with Scorpio’s deep and intense feelings about right and wrong in the world around them. Scorpios are passionate about what they believe in, and they’re not afraid to stand up to those they disagree with.
Libras, on the other hand, are compromising and love to find common ground with anyone. They’re quick to forgive and far more concerned with negotiation than being right. This pair may disagree about how to handle perceived slights or disrespect coming from others.
Scorpio may also feel the urge to take advantage of Libra’s willingness to roll with the punches and find a compromise. You’ll need to discuss boundaries and dealbreakers openly for this union to have any success.
Scorpio Love Compatibility & the Rest of the Zodiac
Scorpio Love Compatibility with Aries
Aries are passionate and fiery, and they know who they are just as well as Scorpio does.
If you happen to be on the same page with things, this relationship can be stellar! But, if you both want different things in life, this might not be the best match. You’ll have to remind one another frequently that you’re a team and avoid being stubborn with each other. Compromise is the name of the game for this union.

Scorpio Love Compatibility with Taurus
Scorpio and Taurus are both sensual creatures, and the sexual tension may be palpable with these two.
You may seem to complement each other quite well and have fun getting things done together. Intimacy is certainly not lacking in this union. However, you’ll both need to be willing to be open, honest, and gentle with each other for this relationship to avoid tension or intense, negative emotions.
Scorpio Love Compatibility with Virgo
Virgo has a sense of logic and a keen mind that will initially draw Scorpio in – and the fact that you both pay attention to detail is a bonus.
Both Scorpio and Virgo probe into things to find information, diving deep into topics and subjects that interest them. But Scorpio may not realize that Virgo can be just as intense as they are. If you can both simmer down when tensions rise, this can be a loving, lively partnership.
Scorpio Love Compatibility with Scorpio
When one Scorpio attracts another, there’s a deep sense of comradery and understanding.
You’re like doppelgangers, each one as intense and curious as to the other. But if you’re not on the same evolutionary path, you may butt heads on a level that you’ve never before experienced in a relationship. There’s plenty of passion here, but even more jealousy in a union between two Scorpios.
You’ll need to create mental and emotional connections outside of the physical passion for this relationship to find its footing.
Scorpio Love Compatibility with Sagittarius
These two signs are naturally different in myriad ways, and there will need to be plenty of compromise and devotion on behalf of both of you for this relationship to blossom.
Sagittarius is like a wild horse, not easily tamed and bound to run free.
When a Sag feels tied down, they can get aggravated or grumpy, and Scorpio might feel like their natural independence is flighty or flaky. Sagittarius wants to go with the flow, while Scorpio wants to be the master of their reality. Adjusting to one another’s personalities is crucial for this relationship to flourish.
Scorpio Love Compatibility with Aquarius
Aquarius is a sign that possesses an intellectual quality that entices and delights Scorpio’s curiosity.
However, these two can clash, as each sign has persistent tendencies that can lead to conflict. Aquarius is not used to sharing their affections, as they prefer to keep their feelings to themselves when possible – which may frustrate the affectionate Scorpio. Scorpio will have to allow Aquarius’ actions speak louder than words for this union to unfold harmoniously.
Are You Ready for Love?
Scorpios are reliable, sensual, and full of insight that seems as though it was handed to them straight from the deep well of celestial, Universal wisdom. They act as magnets to anyone who enjoys deep, profound conversations, and their charming demeanor never fails to entertain. Their natural proclivity for sensuality makes them an excellent lover, while their emotional depth makes them a loving partner.
If you’re a Scorpio yourself, you’ll have to remember to watch out for those obsessions and bad habits that sometimes plague you in relationships. Start fresh and give a new partner the chance to shine, letting go of the heartaches of the past.
What matters more than Sun sign compatibility is the willingness on behalf of each partner to communicate openly, respect each other’s boundaries, and compromise.
If you’re not a Scorpio, but you find yourself enchanted and beguiled by one, you need to know that you’re in for a whirlwind of deep conversations, intense intimacy, and a lifetime of mystery.

What is a Soul Mate?
Quite frankly, an explanation of soul mates isn’t quite necessary – because it’s a concept that your spirit understands on an instinctual level. Your soul already knows the answer to this question. Unfortunately, we are often too caught up in the thoughts floating around our noggins to pay attention to what our spirits are trying to tell us.
One of the trickier things about soul mates is that you may have more than one in your life.
We tend to think of soul mates as the one person that you’re meant to be with. But the definition of a soul mate looks less like one singular person you’re destined to spend your life with and more like someone who complements your soul on such a deep level that you feel complete when you’re with them.
When we think of a soul mate in those terms, it’s much easier to see how there can exist more than one soul mate in this incarnation of your life – and easier to understand how you may have already met many soul mates in this lifetime.
Many people confuse soul mates and twin flames, but the difference is that your soul mates are the ones you started this journey with during your very first lifetime. Your current astrological chart acts as the blueprint you created for this particular incarnation, including each of your soul mates within the wheel. They not only helped you create this blueprint, but you also helped them carve their own natal chart and map of this life.
A twin flame, on the other hand, is said to be your second half. You existed as one before, and your spirit was separated into two halves. You each have different journeys in this life, and you may be the perfect romantic pair (twin flames often highlight our shadow, and it can feel difficult for us to be near them in some cases). Not everyone has a twin flame, and if you do, you only have one. However, you can have multiple soul mates – and not all of them will be a romantic partner.

When Do We Meet Our Soul Mates?
The truth is that you can meet your soul mate (or soul mates) at any time in your life.
You have already been around for many lifetimes and traveled through many incarnations, learning the lessons that help make you who you are today. During the course of these journeys, it’s likely that you’ve already met several soul mates – the people who you seem to know instantly upon meeting.
The trick is learning to recognize them when they cross your path. However, astrology can help you recognize the signs!
How Do You Know?
Understanding how to recognize a soul mate is crucial when trying to determine whether you’ve met them yet or not. And there’s a very good chance that you’ve met at least a couple. You may be hoping that a certain someone in your life is a soul mate – and looking for the signs is the easiest way to find out the truth.
Your Ultimate Soul Mate Checklist
We’ve compiled this checklist to make it easier than ever for you to learn whether or not you’ve currently got a connection with a soul mate in your life. Let’s look at some of the biggest signs that you’ve met your match!
Do You Have a Romantic Connection?
A romantic or sexual attraction may be the first clue that you’ve been with someone very special, with soul mate qualities.
The chemistry, the connection, and the heat that flows between you are among the first signs that a soul mate has entered into your existence. While soul mates don’t always turn into lovers, this special spark is the first clue. True compatibility in love inherently possesses carnal, karmic, tantric, passionate qualities.
Do You Have a Subconscious Connection?
Soul mates tend to share very similar unconscious minds, emotional reactions, and deep empathy for one another’s feelings. If you’ve ever found yourself in the midst of a heated argument with your partner only to feel their own pain, there’s a good chance that your connection exists on a soul-level.
Feeling your soul mate’s pain may seem like a heavy burden to bear, but this emotional exchange also applies to joy and gratitude. When a soul mate partner gets good news, you feel the joy emanating through them as if it were your own. If you can physically and emotionally feel this individual’s vibrations, there’s a good chance that your relationship is meant to be on a cosmic level.
Do You See the Signs?
There’s a difference between a coincidence and synchronicity. While coincidences may be random, there is meaning behind a synchronistic occurrence.
In other words, there are certain circumstantial events that occur in this life that are absolutely related. This explains why one artist working on a certain project on one side of the world may be subconsciously mirroring another artist across the world, working on a very similar project.
Everything is connected.
When you are about to meet a soul mate or are on the path, you may experience certain repetitions or occurrences that seem eerily familiar. You might see that soul mate’s name repeated throughout your day or encounter strange signs with numbers. Perhaps you seem to glance at the clock at 11:11 or 12:34 each day, or maybe a song that reminds you of them keeps playing on the radio.
Learning to recognize and acknowledge these moments – along with expressing your gratitude for these synchronistic gifts – will encourage them to appear more and more in your life. These events prepare you for the initial meeting with your soul mate, allowing you to recognize this union and bring the two of you even closer together.
Are They a Synastry Match?
This is a more complicated aspect of this relationship that may require an experienced astrologer’s advice – someone who can create a relationship synastry report to determine how aligned your separate natal charts are.
However, there are certain astrological connections to look for to determine whether someone is your soul mate or not. For instance, a harmonious connection between your Rising signs is one of the first clues that your relationship is destined to be.
Another aspect that points towards soul mate status is a connection between the Sun and the Moon in your synastry chart. If your Sun is aspecting their Moon harmoniously – or the other way around – you can expect certain karmic energy to flow within this relationship.
Do You Love Yourself?
Sometimes our soul mates come into our lives during a period of loneliness, isolation, or insecurity. And they may leave – and take their time coming back – until we begin to honor, respect, and love ourselves once more. If you’re feeling low or down-and-out, your soul mate may pick up on this sense of unworthiness and feel compelled to give you the space you need to get back into a good place with yourself.
The Universe also senses this, and it paves the way for you to be able to create a more harmonious relationship with yourself – which often means spending some time alone and learning to move on from past heartaches or mistakes. It’s time to forgive not only those who have hurt you but yourself.
Loving yourself unconditionally is a surefire way to open up the doors of your spirit and allow your soul mate to step through.
If you aren’t taking care of yourself and keeping up your faith in yourself, the Universe may determine that it’s not the right time for you to meet your soul mate. After all, you want to be the best version of yourself for them, don’t you?
When you learn to respect and love yourself, that gives your soul mate the opportunity to respect and love you as well. And when they begin to pick up on those vibes of unconditional love, they know that it is a safer time for both parties to allow this union to blossom.
Are You Speaking the Truth?
You’ve probably heard this phrase before: “The truth will set you free.”
When it comes to the Universe, this phrase is key. The Universe requires complete truth from your spirit in order for you to get the love and connection you deserve. If you’ve been playing games with yourself or others, the Universe will recognize that you’re not ready for the depth and the naked truth that comes along with meeting your soul mate.
Don’t get down on yourself if you haven’t been the most authentic, genuine version of yourself in the game of love – we’ve all been there. It can feel very difficult to be open, honest, and vulnerable – sometimes even with ourselves.
But, if you want to attract your soul mate into your life and be able to recognize them once they’re present, it’s crucial that you learn to be honest both with yourself and others – and especially with the energy of the Universe.
Speaking the truth is like an act of unconditional love that both you and those around you deserve. Being honest and being grateful are two factors that mean the most when it comes to meeting your soul mate – and the Universe will recognize these actions and reward them.
Soul Mates Take Work!
While there is an unbreakable bond of unconditional love between yourself and your soul mate, it’s not all a walk in the park. Any relationship takes work, and your relationship with your soul mate might require even more effort than you imagined. In fact, this deep bond that you share may exist to test you and encourage you to evolve in this life – meaning this relationship will include more than its fair share of challenges.
We often allow our human “stuff” – insecurity, fear, anger, resentment – to get in the way of these cosmic connections.
Sometimes these insecurities or fears destroy a relationship, but they always teach us a valuable lesson or two. When you meet your soul mate, you’ll want to be in the best place of confidence and gratitude to truly appreciate this magical union.
You can meet your soul mate, (or soul mates,) anytime and anywhere throughout your life. The important thing is learning to recognize these meetings and pay them the honor and respect that they deserve. A soul mate union may not always be the most smooth-running relationship in your life, but these relationships teach us the most about who we are and why we were put here on the planet.
Learning to recognize your soul mate(s) will help you make the most of your connections in life, even encouraging you to build a better relationship with yourself. And when you understand that you may meet many soul mates in this lifetime, you will begin to pay closer attention to those people with whom you seem to share an instant connection upon meeting.
Keep your eyes open, your heart full, and let your truth flow to begin attracting more soul-mate connections into your life once and for all!
Tarot has taken the world by storm, and it’s not unlikely that you are already well-acquainted with this magical divination tool. But it’s also not the only form of divination out there — and if you’re not looking closely, you may just be missing out on some powerful divinatory systems!
It’s not a secret that many divination systems are shrouded in some veil of mystery and mystique, even if they have become more of an occult staple like Tarot cards.
Whether or not you are satisfied with just working with astrology or have found something amiss about the esoteric wisdom you have stumbled upon thus far, reading up on some divination systems outside of what you know can be truly enlightening. Branching outside of what we know to seek alternative answers or systems is one of the reasons divination exists in the first place, so digging a bit deeper to explore other systems is ideal no matter what!
Today, we aim to unveil a bit of the magic behind divination and let you in on some “new” divination systems that you may love.
5 Underrated & Powerful Divination Systems
Mirror, mirror on the wall… who is the easiest divination system to access of them all? (Hint: it’s scrying!).
Scrying is achieved by tuning in with your inner eye and vision, and decoding whatever comes to mind in order to relay a message. Like Tarot, this is a divination method that often relies on you intuiting symbols and images, but unlike Tarot, the symbols and images are seen in your mind’s eye. Often, a reflective surface is used to gaze into and focus upon, but at the end of the day the visions, symbols, and concepts come from within.
Chances are, you have seen depictions of scrying across multiple forms of media, like in TV or the movies. Psychics are often depicted staring into a crystal ball and foreseeing the future — this is what scrying is!
However, you don’t need a crystal ball in order to successfully scry. Tools can range from a bowl of water, a mirror, smoke, or oil — any reflective surface works!
Also more commonly known as a tea leaf reading, tasseography is a divination system that calls for a cup, hot water, some loose leaf tea, and your intuition!
Practicing tasseography can be both fun and as simple or as complicated as you wish.
Brew up the tea, focus on a question, and allow the querent to sip the tea until only the tea leaves are left. Some may add steps here, including rotating the cup, or stirring the tea a certain amount of times, as an example. Like all other forms of divination, there are many ways to go about it, and you should ultimately do what feels right for you.
After the tea leaves are set and ready to be read, you will begin to make out symbols, images, or concepts that you can see in the shape of the leaves. Often, they will look like animals, numbers, letters, or miscellaneous objects. Similar to scrying, this is a form of divination that will require you to think intuitively about what messages are being relayed in these (sometimes abstract) symbols.
Overall, if you already are a tea lover yourself, or enjoy extremely interactive forms of divination, tasseography may be a match made in heaven.
Runes are very similar to the Tarot in that they are visual tools with a specific set of meanings assigned to different pieces.
Instead of cards, however, the symbols of this divination tool are put on a series of stones. One other difference is that the Tarot cards are 78 in total, while runes are usually only about 24. Just like the Tarot, however, you draw stones when seeking your answers.
The symbol on the stone you draw will reveal the answers that you seek. You can also do readings with Runes, and draw three or five or even 10 if you want detailed answers! Runes are a very powerful divination tool that have been used for thousands of years for everyone from mystics to witches to famous philosophers to get detailed answers to some of life’s biggest secrets!

Sometimes, the simplest answers are the best. As much as astrology or Tarot answers many of our general questions, sometimes we just need a yes or no answer. Should I take this job offer? Should I answer this phone call? Do I go to this party?
These are questions that won’t always require a full-blown Tarot spread, but we may still need some extra guidance on it. This divination tool is so simple, and it does just that.
Ask a pendulum your question, and wait to see which way the pendulum swings! If you have your own pendulum, you simply need to calibrate it so that you know what answer means no, and what answer means yes. For example, you can do this by asking the pendulum if your name is… whatever your name is.
Watch which way it swings for your known Yes answer, and you’ve just calibrated your pendulum. Whenever you need a quick fix and quick answers that more complex forms of divination can’t provide right away, the pendulum is your go-to!
5. Lenormand Cards
If you love Tarot, chances are you’ll love Lenormand cards, especially if you’re looking for something a little more focused on specificity or future-based readings.
Like Tarot, Lenormand is a card-based divination system that has specific meanings and definitions assigned to each card. However, whereas Tarot often shows us how and why things are happening, Lenormand is significantly more focused on the “what.”
This means that if you’re interested in more “fortune-telling” based forms of divination, then Lenormand may just be an ideal choice.
This option is particularly great for card readers looking to branch outside of their comfort zone, or are looking to expand their deck inventory to a more diverse state that can accommodate many different kinds of questions and readings!
Which Divination System Will You Choose?
These are just five divination systems among many others, some that have grown to be as popular and more mainstream like Tarot, and some that have been lost in the sands of time as centuries have passed.
Learning and growing with your intuition can be a little more fun with tried and true divination methods and systems at your disposal no matter what, so don’t be afraid to try something new every now and then.
Ultimately, it may take a lot of research and practice, as well as trial and error, to discover what divination systems do and don’t work for you — and that can be part of the fun too!
What is the definition of the perfect job? Is it a job that pays well and doesn’t challenge you at all? Or is it a position that helps you grow as an individual and find your passion in life? The truth is, one of the biggest features of the perfect job is its ability to make you tick!
Once you know where your passions lie, it becomes much easier to filter through positions that might cause more stress than reward for your unique personality. You deserve a job that appreciates your challenges and what you bring to the table, while it also helps you horn in on and expand your talents. But how can we learn more about what we need from a job?
One of the easiest ways to learn more about yourself and what you crave from your career is by taking a look at your Life Path Number. And, as an added bonus, once you’ve learned how to calculate a Life Path Number, you can help your friends and family learn more about their own unique personalities. Seeking that perfect work-life balance can be hard, but numerology can help.
Astrology and numerology are two different systems that flow flawlessly with one another. Both numerology and astrology illuminate you, and help you understand yourself more deeply. Astrology places an emphasis on our mystical connection to the stars, while numerology focuses on the mystical connection between numbers and events.
You can also use the info gathered from your Life Path Number in conjunction with traditional Western astrology along with your Chinese zodiac to learn even more about the careers that best suit your personality. Take note of the information that seems to overlap – you may be surprised by how well these three metaphysical areas correlate with one another.

How to Boost Your Mood, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
As a natural born leader and a Fire sign, Aries is full of spark, magic, and passion. Aries may have a bad day that leads to their tempers flaring up if things aren’t going their way.
The best thing to boost your mood when this happens, is to remove yourself from the situation. Did you just have a fight with a co-worker or a partner? Take yourself outside for a refreshing walk, or go somewhere by yourself for lunch.
Another way to lift your spirits is by switching up your routine when your day goes off track. It becomes harder to dwell on the negative when you’re tackling a new project, or trying out a new fitness class. These are just a few things you can pour your Aries energy into!
Taurus is an Earth sign and is loyal to the core. This can make Taurus quite stubborn, which can lead to a not-so-great day if they can’t see eye-to-eye with someone.
When you are down in the dumps, Taurus, do something that captivates one of your senses. Feel something pretty, touch something pretty, or taste something pretty.
Stop in at a department store and buy a new perfume scent. Listen to the calming sounds of the ocean, even if it is just a recording. Buy yourself a new outfit and go out on the town to show it off. When Taurus feels attractive, Taurus feels great.
Feed your senses this way and you will give yourself, or a Taurus in your life, an instant pick me up.
Gemini is an Air sign, and ruled by Mercury. This makes Gemini the “Chatty Cathy” of the zodiac.
If you need an instant mood boost, find your favorite person, or people, and get connected.
Send out some texts, or just call up your favorite pal to see what they have been up to lately. You are a social sign, and nothing will put you in a better mood than talking to the people you care about.
As a Water sign, you are the nurturer in the zodiac, Cancer. You feel good when others are comfortable and taken care of. You usually feel down when you aren’t receiving enough nurturing yourself, though.
If this is the case, it might be time to boost your mood with some much-needed self-care.
This could be anything from a long hot bubble bath to a night on the town with your favorite person. You may want to try a new recipe or restaurant, preferably a restaurant where you can be served for a change. Put the apron down, call a babysitter if needed, and treat yourself.
Hey! Don’t forget to read this next: Your Personality Secrets, Based on Your Zodiac Sign.
You just want to have fun, Leo. Ruled by the Sun, something big has to happen for this sign to be in a bad mood, like someone testing their loyalty.
Improve your mood by giving yourself a boost of self-confidence.
Engage in an activity that makes you feel like a superstar, like karaoke, or public speaking. When you feel admired, you feel good. Connect with others that make you feel good at the same time, and this becomes a winning combination!
Virgo is the Mutable Earth sign that is picky, health conscious, and likes things in order. You are usually pretty flexible and can cope with a lot; you don’t often need a mood boost. When you do, some serious down time is in order.
It’s time to retreat, relax, and engage in a digital detox, Virgo.
We’re talking unplug from your phone and work e-mails. You may also want to splurge on some retail therapy. You usually have a practical approach to money, so spending a little money on yourself can feel good. Go all out, and really pamper yourself.
Libra is the harmonious relationship-oriented sign, and also the Cardinal Air sign. Libra is easy to please, being ruled by Venus. You love your organization, so why not focus on that when your day isn’t going well?
Libra likes to make their home beautiful. So, do something around the house to make it look beautiful! Color code your closet, re-organize your pantry, or clean out your basement. This will almost instantly boost your mood.
All it takes to pick you up, Scorpio, is a good mystery or a good secret! You can do this a number of ways, by getting into deep, meaningful conversation with someone you love the most, or by engaging in some detective work.
As the Fixed Water sign, still waters run deep with you, and you love to explore what is beneath the surface. Anything that stimulates the desire to solve a problem or a puzzle will be a great distraction for you.
If you need an escape from the world, a nice bottle of wine and a marathon of 48 Hours Mysteries or Making a Murderer is your perfect evening setup to help you unwind.
You are the philosopher and the traveler of the zodiac, and as the Mutable Fire sign, you always seem to have a lot going on, Sagittarius. You are creative and passionate, but when you are in the dumps, your inner sparkle really fizzles out.
You can pick that mood up again by a short bout of escapism
Daydreaming and fantasizing about a future trip, or mapping out a career plan will be super helpful for you. Let your mind and your heart go wherever it can. You’ll have fun just dreaming about what could be! You may even feel the fire lit under you to pursue a few dreams, and that’s never a bad thing.
Capricorn is happiest when they have some productive work goals aligned, created, in development, or launching. As the Cardinal Earth sign, you also love to be the boss.
You aren’t able to connect with your feelings as much as others, and so when you are having a bad day or need the mood boosted, you are better off on your own. This is especially true if a person has annoyed you and put you in a bad mood.
If you aren’t feeling like yourself, go somewhere you can be alone to write out your feelings, or do some yoga to get re-centered and aligned. One good thing about you is that you never stay upset for long, because you have work to do!

As a Fixed Air sign, Aquarius can come off as a bit begrudging sometimes. Some call you stubborn, and others may even find you cold. You don’t get in bad moods often, but when you do, there’s a definite chill.
You feel most productive and accomplished in life when you have given back to the world. If you need a mood boost, you simply need to focus on how you can give back.
Try volunteering for something you are passionate about. For a quick boost, simply clean out your closet and take a bin of clothes to your local shelter. This reminds you about the bigger picture in life, and that what has upset you is just a small bump in the road.
As the Mutable Water sign, Pisces can frequently get blue. You are more prone to mood swings than others, and you even have a reputation for retreating into “your cave” on occasion (sometimes physically, and sometimes mentally).
Try a different approach next time, Pisces. When you need a mood boost, find a creative outlet.
You can be the most creative sign of the zodiac. If you do feel down in the dumps dance it out, paint it out, draw it out, or write it out, whatever works best for you. When you do, it will be amazing for your heart and soul.
