Daily Crystal Horoscope Monday *05/02/16*
Crystals for the day: Ametrine & Septarian.
We are in the midst of a major cosmic slow down with several planets in retrograde phases. If you’re feeling the change in the energy, don't just push through it because that will defeat the purpose and the only thing you will gain is frustration. Understand the energy that is being produced and make it work for you! Mercury in retrograde wants you to allow your mind to relax and process the present and past internally before you move past it. Mars in retrograde encourages you to stop acting on impulse and starting thinking strategically. This is an amazing opportunity to gain self-control for direct, focused moves that will be far more effective at achieving your goals than randomly scattering your energies. Saturn is also retrograde, so when you get stopped in your tracks you can use its energy to devise a new plan. This period enables Saturn's energy to be more adaptable while retaining its purpose. Pluto is retrograde and this means it’s time to release what is no longer working for you. That will likely leave a space, but it won't be vacant for long because one major planet will be moving forward very soon. Jupiter has been retrograde since January, so expansion has been slow and stagnant. That will begin to change when Jupiter starts moving direct in the next week, so use your energy wisely and prepare to take advantage of all the good that’s ahead. Ametrine will enable you to see all the positive opportunities that these retrograde periods offer to create more peace and happiness in your life. Septarian will encourage you to use the energy for increased self-awareness and to take the time to strengthen your greatest asset...You!
