Crystal Astrology Report
Venus and Mars are in a square today stimulating our passions and creativity. This can be an exciting influence but be cautious of overindulgence and the urge to be too competitive. Venus in Gemini will scatter your attention making it difficult to focus and easy to become stressed. Stilbite will help you to ease the frustration of wanting it all and wanting it now! Botswana Agate will keep you focused as you make the most of this energy.
The action planet Mars has been retrograde since January 23rd causing delays and stoppages in many areas. As frustrating as it is when things just don't move at the pace you would like, it can work to your advantage. Now is the time to take a breath and take a second look at anything you've had in the works. You've got a second chance to adjust or halt any project before Mars turns direct and it all starts moving ahead. White Aventurine will assist as you review where you are and where you are going. Celestite will offer clarity.
There's a quirky vibe today that is perfect for taking risks and pursuing new and unusual adventures, particularly when it comes to relationships and money since it's Venus and Uranus supplying the experimental energy. This is an especially favorable aspect for events and social interactions. Star Sapphire will help you uncover your wild side and Chalcopyrite will guide you to the perfect outlet.
Pluto turns retrograde today and unlike other planets that lose energy during a retrograde period, Pluto's energy will actually intensify. That is because Pluto is one of those planets that affects us internally more than externally. And retrogrades are all about our internal activities. From now until September you can expect a lot of intense insight, the unwavering need to eliminate old patterns and situations, and a profound opportunity for rebirth. There will be challenges - especially emotionally - but overall this will be an extremely beneficial, "house-cleaning" period for all of us. Snowflake Obsidian will offer comfort for any emotional crisis and Carnelian will stimulate your efforts at release and renewal.
This is a great week for accomplishing tasks with Mars turning direct and now a Sagittarius moon giving our efforts a healthy boost in a positive direction. Use this energy to make progress on work that is already begun rather than starting something new. Labradorite will provide inside and motivation for your efforts.
If you've got insecurities (and who doesn't?) they will be highlighted today as Venus squares Chiron. Instead of focusing on yourself, use the energy to learn more about others and work on building intimacy by sharing your thoughts in a caring manner. Tiger Eye will boost your confidence and Chrysocolla will enhance your personal interactions.
Luck may be on your mind this Friday the 13th but it's all good news as Mars turns direct and plans move forward. This is a wonderful day for positive actions both internally and externally so use Moss Agate to spark anything that's been stalled during the retrograde and Sunstone to begin new projects.
It will be difficult to remain rational today as Venus and Pluto cause us to reassess our relations and commitments. Do your best not to be overcome with thoughts of betrayal and jealously. Rose Quartz will let you remain in control of your situation. Serpentine will guide you if something really does need adjustments.
