      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: Full Moon in Virgo

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: Full Moon in Virgo

      We have a Virgo Full Moon flying in on the 27th of this month folks. With the end of this lunar cycle, we can concentrate our focus on the intentions we set for the New Moon and see what we can do to make motions to fulfill those goals or work to make progress for the next Full Moon.


      The Influence of Virgo on the Moon:

      The Moon represents our internal drives and characteristics while drawing out our unconscious tendencies of how we interact with the world around us. It is often thought to represent our emotional journey through the cosmos.


      You can expect to find comfort in small routines that usually go overlooked but make a world of difference when it comes time to conquer larger obstacles. Whether that means having all the dishes done before the heavy lifting of a big house project, or the simple act of balancing your checkbook (do people still do that?) which can bring peace of mind once it’s done. 


      If you’re feeling like you’re not accomplishing enough right now, or feel you’re destined for more, remember that these down moments are necessary. Take this time to get everything in order for when it’s time to make moves and really get down to business–because that time is coming sooner than you think!


      What this moon means for Fire Signs; Leo, Aries, Sagittarius:

      You may have to focus a little harder to get those typically mindless tasks done this cycle. We know you’re looking at the big picture, but don’t forget to shine some light on the details that will make your bigger plans come to life.


      What this moon means for Earth Signs; Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn:

      The ambition to better your position for growth is strong right now. Use this energy to be your true self and let that light pour over into the cups of those around you. While you’re indulging in this moment of bliss, be sure to make time to get the necessary tasks done.


      What this moon means for Air Signs; Gemini, Libra, Aquarius:

      We know we’ve been saying this over and over, but clearing out the clutter is extra important right now. It’s going to make room for what you truly need more of in life. Call a friend to help you through the process if you need and make time to check in with your mystical side. 


      What this moon means for Water Signs; Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces:

      It’s all about romance and communication for you right now, so take a close look at what the vibe is and be smart about the actions you make. If you’re giving too much of yourself and not getting back what you need, is it worth it?

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: Pisces Seasonal Horoscopes

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: Pisces Seasonal Horoscopes

      Hi friends! Welcome back to another change in the zodiac season! There’s a lot happening in the cosmos this time around and we want to make sure you have all the info you need to be prepared for what might come. On February 19th the sun moves into Pisces and we begin to see the effects of this as our hemisphere starts to make moves into that Spring lifestyle. 

      Pisces is known for being understanding and empathetic, mystical and intuitive. All of which are great qualities to have especially when we are approaching the anniversary of the year that we have been through. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself lost in deep reflection through this period as it is an important time for all of us to process what we’ve been through in order to grow into the coming seasons. 

      With Mercury coming out of retrograde on February 21st, just a few days after Pisces takes center stage, challenge yourself to be flexible with plans. It might be best to double-check any important emails or texts a few times too and not to make any decisions in haste. 


      Aries (March 21-April 19)

      Enjoy your morning coffee and those few minutes after lunch before you get back to work. See those small moments for what they are and center on the calm they have to offer. It is this peace that will help with the rest of the crazy that you’ll experience this season. 


      Taurus (April 20-May 20)

      Are you feeling that burnout? Reconnect with your community in ways you don’t usually think of. Write a letter to someone you admire or send a surprise gift to your friend that’s furthest away. It’s the little moments that make a difference and you always have the power to make someone else's day better. 


      Gemini (May 21-June 20)

      Retrograde has definitely affected your communication but rest assured, it’s almost over and soon you will be able to fully express your ideas. Focus in on the power that’s been rallying for your attention the last few weeks and see how you can harness that to meet your goals.


      Cancer (June 21-July 22)

      A change in routine and lifestyle can be uncomfortable but remember that even a caterpillar turns into a pile of mush before it becomes a butterfly! You’ll begin to see an end to this transformation soon and when you do, everything will feel much more at ease. 


      Leo (July 23-August 22)

      Are you thinking about finances right now loyal lion? The stars say it might not be the best time to spend, but it is the perfect time to invest in what makes you happy! With some small change see how you can make moves to feel those little moments of joy. 


      Virgo (August-September 22)

      This whole year has been a learning experience and has taught you many lessons on what you’re willing to handle in order to reach your goals. Pisces season and Mercury retrograde will challenge you still further, but you have the tools and experience to handle it with grace and empathy like the boss you have always known you are.


      Libra (September 23-October 22)

      If you haven’t figured out how to relieve yourself of that toxic energy in your life, keep working at it. If you notice your energy is being drained in the pursuit but the results just don’t add up, then weed out the processes that aren’t benefiting your time. Make a list and a plan if it helps! 


      Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

      How’s that journey going? You were just beginning when Aquarius energy enveloped the cosmos and now that Pisces is leading the way there are some details you shouldn’t overlook. Take time to communicate what you mean with your partner and don’t shy away from tough talks. Your other half will support you through the most difficult paths without tearing you down. 


      Sagittarius (November 22-December21)

      Look forward to the Full Moon, Sag! Some exciting news will come your way around March 9th but you’ll have to practice some patience before you can celebrate fully. Before you get too carried away, take a moment to meditate on the choices you made along this path to your accomplishments. 


      Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

      Try to read between the lines of any important interactions you have this month. The true intentions of those you’re engaging with will be visible but may be masked by words meant to distract you. You’re usually pretty good at this, but reach out to family if you have any doubts. 


      Aquarius (January 20-February18)

      In retrograde be aware of how you correspond with your friends and family. Miscommunication will impact these relationships the most so tread lightly. If your self-esteem is a bit lower than usual then take some time to invest in yourself and do something that brings you joy. 


      Pisces (February 19-March 20)

      You made it around the sun again and we’re so proud of you! Indulge in the creative passions that lift your spirits–even if you don’t think you’re very good at it! It’s these small moments that add up and make a world of difference to you and your community.

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: FEBRUARY NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: FEBRUARY NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS

       

      On the 11th the New Moon will rise into the sign of Aquarius and bring with it a fresh beginning, as all new moons do with the mark of a fresh lunar cycle. It is an ideal time to take stock of what goals you hoped to achieve on our previous new moon and what more you could work or invite into your energy field in order to see those needs are met for the next full lunar beauty. 

      Aquarius energy, a trend for 2021, tends to be known as the free spirit of the zodiac, something I think we can all relate to here at Mexicali Blues. Those who associate themselves with this sign are often strong willed, trust their instincts and have a wild creativity that lends them to be comfortable on their own yet self confident enough to feel at ease in crowds. It’s a delightful balance of playfulness and structure and for that we love this flowing air sign!

      As the moon does its dance with the water bearer constellation this month, think about the ways this energy will affect you. Take a moment to meditate and focus on your needs and what you wish could be fulfilled to fill your heart with happiness. 


      What this moon means for Fire Signs; Leo, Aries, Sagittarius:

      It’s all about balance for you right now sweet fire sign. There's a good opportunity for some professional development and should you invest in it, the reward will be big. We also stress that you create small moments of joy while you continue the hard work. Maybe that means taking a long bubble bath in the middle of the week, or maybe it could be the true joy of bringing home that stellar sweater you saw on sale. 


      What this moon means for Earth Signs; Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn:

      We get the sense that you may be feeling flush, whether you got a bonus recently or if you just have way more affection to give than usual, it’s clear that whatever is going on is working. But don’t get caught up in this or expect it to last. A new routine is coming your way and if you can slowly introduce those new steps then the dance won't be too difficult to learn. 


      What this moon means for Air Signs; Gemini, Libra, Aquarius:

      Learning in the moment will be important this moon cycle and we know this one can be a little tricky for the breezy and beautiful air sign that you are. If you enter into a situation where you feel not quite yourself, step back and allow yourself to really soak in what’s happening and if your reaction is justified. If so, carry on, but if there’s a moment when you doubt yourself lean into those feelings and meditate a bit more. 


      What this moon means for Water Signs; Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces:

      Whew! We know there’s a lot going on right now and it might be hard to break out of that tunnel vision. We all go through that from time to time and it’s important to prioritize some time off to focus on you. Do some journaling, rearrange your crystals, or declutter the space you spend the most time in. Sometimes just having a clean desk can make all the difference.

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: January Full Moon in Leo

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: January Full Moon in Leo

      We made it through the first lunar cycle of 2021 to be rewarded with the Full Wolf Moon rising on the 28th in the constellation of Leo. With the sun challenging it from Aquarius it’s sure to be an interesting time. Think back to a few weeks ago and the intentions you set and congratulate yourself for the progress you made, even if it was just one step closer to your goal.


      Leo is known for being outgoing, strong and creative. There is a lot of love that the lion has to offer and with the Full Moon taking center stage it brings this emotion out in all of us. See where you can invest a little more love into every aspect of your life. The changes that occur may surprise you in the best way!


      What this moon means for Fire Signs:

      Leo, Aries, Sagittarius

      The intentions you set for yourself are creating change in your life. Let nature take its course and try not to force it to happen before it’s time. Now is the perfect opportunity to focus back on yourself and touch in with the needs you want met in your personal life. Use this Full Moon energy to reach out to someone you’ve admired for a long time. 


      What this moon means for Earth Signs:

      Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

      If you’re feeling the burnout then it’s time to rest sweetly Earth signs. Take care to listen to your body and mind, honor your feelings and invest in yourself. If there’s any clarity or healing that can come through conversation, search for the power within yourself to make it happen. It’s been a long time coming. 


      What this moon means for Air Signs:

      Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

      The time you took to listen to your inner voice recently is paying off, even if it seems like nothing has changed. If you feel so inclined, share your discoveries with those closest to you. You will be met with warmth and understanding, and if you’re not, then you know that there’s more growing to do on their part. 


      What this moon means for Water Signs:

      Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

      Give yourself a moment for introspection and see if there are any adjustments you want made in your day to day life. If you can bring more love into the tasks before you, peace will surely follow. Tie this into your professional life and realize a sense of fulfillment can make all the difference. 

      GEMSTONE MAGIC + MEANING: CRYSTAL HEALING FOR BEGINNERS

      GEMSTONE MAGIC + MEANING: CRYSTAL HEALING FOR BEGINNERS

       

      Crystals have been getting a lot of attention and hype recently and we know there are a lot of skeptics out there. On the other side of the spectrum, sometimes people put too much trust into their precious gems. It’s important to remember that while crystals carry their own energy, at the end of the day they are tools to help you connect to your own power. Yes, they are precious and come from our collective mother earth. However they (probably) won’t make all of your problems magically disappear, but they can definitely help amplify the power within yourself to find the resolution or peace that you’re searching for. 


      How do I choose my crystal?

      Pendulums

      Once you identify what kind energy you want to bring into your life, or what you need a little extra support with, then you can begin the search for your ideal–not necessarily perfect–crystal. We love to use a pendulum to make this choice and to help guide some of our decisions when it becomes too difficult to make a decision on our own. Pendulums are crystal tokens of a certain density that are attached at the end of a fine chain. To use them, simply hold the pendulum by the end of the chain and ask the pendulum to “show you the answer for yes”. Study the direction it is moving, sometimes it is a simple back and forth movement, other times it may reflect a circle pattern. Once you have the movement for yes, ask it to “show its answer for no”. It will change from use to use, so touch base every time you want to use your pendulum in this way. If you’re having trouble coming to a decision or looking for answers then they can be great tools to invest in. 

      Touch

      If Pendulums aren’t your thing, then we highly recommend going by how it feels in your hand and trying to connect with the energy of the crystal before you bring it home. While this might be more of a challenge in the covid era, we can guarantee that all our try on procedures at our Maine locations are focused on helping you find what you need in a safe, sanitized and supportive environment. 

      Rough vs. Smooth

      Some individuals are more sensitive to the energies of crystals and gemstones than others. This isn’t necessarily a good or bad thing, and if you have a difficult time feeling the energy of crystals it by no means implies that you are bad at it. If you do find that it is more difficult to connect to the energy of your stones, then perhaps try meditating with rough or raw crystals. They are said to have a more intense and powerful vibration. It is not always necessary for this kind of powerboost in every crystal ritual, but in certain circumstances we have experienced their benefits. 


      When should I use my crystals?

      Any time you please! We are fans of daily crystal use and wear. It’s no secret that we love to be on the move (usually) so most of our gemstone and crystal energy comes from our jewelry. When in the form of necklaces and rings, we can take along our precious crystals without fear of it slipping out of our pocket and finding a new home. Plus this gives us the opportunity to absorb and direct the stones energy through all day wear rather than individual healing sessions. Crystal healing can also be beneficial when we’re feeling lost and in search of guidance. Even if all is well in your life, you can use your crystals to say thank you and put the overflowing gratuitous energy back into the universe for others to absorb. 

      Like everything, from time to time it is necessary to recharge and evaluate what a crystal is doing for you. Moonbaths can be a great way to cleanse the energy which your stones absorb. It is good to cleanse your crystals often, ideally with the emergence of each full moon. As an extra precaution, be sure to check in on the care guides of any of your crystals and gemstones before beginning this ritual. 

      Each type of crystal has a different property and can help in different areas of your life. Just because one stone is said to have an effect on a singular aspect of your life, does not necessarily mean that it won't help in other ways. Crystal healing and understanding the energy of the stones you keep around you is a very personal and intuitive journey. What may work for some, is not always the way for others.


      How can I use my crystals?

      Crystal healing is a unique experience to the individual. It’s important to first determine why you’re sitting down to heal and what kind of energy you’re reaching out into the universe for. Before jumping into any kind of ritual, we think it’s important to center yourself in meditation and reflect on what your body is feeling before altering the space with powerful energies. Once you feel you are ready, you can begin these techniques with cleansed crystals:

      When your mind is focused, it is important to set your intention for this process. If this is done with pure intentions and a true desire for guidance, your crystals can help you find the power to make huge changes in your life. Holding your gemstones in your hands and concentrating on your connection to the energy within, try to visualize the energy that is being transferred and absorbed. Picture this within your mind and focus deeply on how you feel and what your goals are. Do this so that every time you are near this gemstone you think of the intention you set with it and watch as the energies within your life begin to shift.

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: Aquarius Seasonal Horoscopes

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: Aquarius Seasonal Horoscopes

       

      The Sun moves into Aquarius on January 21st this year and will remain there until February 19th when we transition into Pisces. Aquarius is one of the oldest constellations to be recognized among the stars. Its accompanying myth is known as the “water bearer,” and throughout history has been associated with the floods of Babylon and Egypt. 

      Based on current events, it seems fitting that Aquarius should be entering the centerfold of the cosmos at this time. Even those who have been doubtful of astrological messages in the past are beginning to see how our collective experience is being orchestrated by the tides of the stars. As the myth goes, Zeus was said to have poured the heavenly waters from Mount Olympus into the Earth to cleanse it of the wicked and evil men, and thus bringing a fresh start for those to come after. As the first shift in the astrological season of the new year, the allure of a fresh start definitely still has it’s appeal. But what does this beginning mean for your sign?


      Aries (March 21-April 19)

      The calm and cooling energy of Aquarius is going to help your sudden impulses this season, Aries. This is going to be a most valuable time of learning and reflection. Whether you’ve been hard at work to be more mindful of this aspect of yourself, or if you’re newly continuous of it, this moment is important for you. 


      Taurus (April 20-May 20)

      You’ve had ample time to reflect on what you want out of your daily experiences this past year. Now is the time to start making adjustments to see those positive changes. Remember that it’s ok to change your mind and develop new beliefs. Those who understand and cherish you will not have any less love in their heart because of these changes and will understand your reasons behind any important decisions you make.


      Gemini (May 21-June 20)

      If you’re feeling an overwhelming urge to experience new things and discover a side of yourself that has been dormant, we’re not surprised. The energy Aquarius is giving you, sweet Gemini, is that of a determined explorer. Use this boost to learn something new and satisfy your search for knowledge and understanding. 


      Cancer (June 21-July 22)

      Much like Gemini, you too are about to experience great change and will come to a new understanding of yourself. While this change comes to be, remember that it can only truly be completed if you are in an environment that will support this transformation. Perhaps it’s time for you to let go of what might be holding you back. 


      Leo (July 23-August 22)

      We know something doesn’t feel quite right. We’re right there with you. Getting out of the routine you’ve been stuck in might help. Spend a whole day engaging in activities that bring you joy, or at least remember to schedule time for whatever brings you joy throughout the week. 


      Virgo (August-September 22)

      We understand the desire for a change of scenery or shift in your daily routine. If you can do so safely, a journey down a new path might be just what you need! There may even be a way to do so without going too far. Explore those options that you would have otherwise ignored. 


      Libra (September 23-October 22)

      This season will help you settle into your genuine and true self. Whether that means you’re distancing yourself from toxic energy which has been clouding your judgement or else seeking out experiences you were once too scared to engage in. Pay attention to your breath in stressful situations and you’ll know when to make the right choice. 


      Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

      You’re just at the beginning of a long and exciting journey. Before you get too far along, make sure you have all the tools you need to succeed. Check in with your loved ones and see if there’s anything you forgot. They might have some words of wisdom and insight you wouldn’t have thought of.


      Sagittarius (November 22-December21)

      We know this line gets old, but remember that slow and steady wins the race. The universe is priming you for exciting changes in the most important areas of your life, but be cautious not to skip any of the important steps—otherwise those milestones may not come to fruition. 


      Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

      As we leave your sign it might be hard to keep a level head, yes even for you. Remember you’re not the only one who is going through a transitional moment and that your words have lasting meaning to those around you. You will succeed, but be sure you don’t tear others down to achieve your goals.


      Aquarius (January 20-February16)

      You’ve come full circle once again and we are so proud of you! Your path is shifting and that’s ok, everyone has to adjust as the changes continue to flow. Allow yourself some time to relax and soak in the energy which the universe is generously providing. If you ever need a hand, you can count on your air and water signs to support you. 


      Pisces (February 19-March 20)

      Oh the anticipation! We know it can be difficult, but waiting your turn is one of those lessons that should never be taken lightly. Soon the moment for you to shine will come, but for now, continue putting in the hard work.
