Unsurprisingly, the cards this week reflect a need for presence, grounding, and facing our darkness. Take a moment, set your intention/inquiry, pick a card, and dive in....
From the Visions oracle deck guidebook:
Rainbow hematite is a powerful grounding and protective stone. It is here to invoke and encourage deep thoughts and process. If rainbow hematite is showing up for you today, it is encouraging you to go about a certain situation from a deep grounded place using a logical thought process. While your heart may want certain things, this is a time to use the “what makes the most sense” kind of thought process. Rainbow hematite is offering you will power and confidence to get to where you need to be with your decision process.
Zodiac: Aries and Aquarius
Tarot: Queen of swords
Black lava is a mineral derived from the aftermath of a volcano eruption. Ruled by the zodiac sign of Aries and its fiery nature, black lava is used for grounding and calming strong emotions. Associated with the cycles of death and rebirth, it helps us shed unhealthy layers of emotional attachment. In a lot of ways, I would associate this mineral with the Death card from the Major Arcana. If you are unfamiliar with this tarot card, know that whatever changes are currently unfolding before you, some things must die in order for them to be born. Strong emotions may come with these changes, do not ignore them! The clearing and releasing of these negative attachments is imperative to your growth. Black lava is here to assist you with this process.
Tarot card: Death
Aragonite is a very grounding stone. It connects us to earth energies and assist us in being present in our bodies. It may be showing up for you right now to remind you to check in with yourself. Are your needs being met, are you getting enough rest, water, and food? If you are feeling out of sorts, confused, or stressed right now, center yourself and ask if there is anything you need to let go of. What is standing in your way? What or who is bringing you down? Release these things, whatever they may be as they no longer serve you. Stay present and grounded within yourself.
Zodiac: Capricorn and Cancer
Tarot card: 6 of pentacles
