The Astroenergetic Tapestry Report for the week of April 21-27,2014
Monday April 21, 2014 – The moon is in Capricorn all day so we will feel that earthy grounded feeling throughout the day. The energy of the moon as it recently passed over Pluto yesterday is giving us an opportunity to see more clearly the pathway that we want to take that will catapult us into the next level of our passion.
In the early morning hours, as we either sleep or are still awake we will feel that our emotions and what we are attracted to and love are in harmony with one another. We will either be up at this time, feeling lighter and more harmonious or we will be sleeping cozy in our beds feeling that we are in sync with the world.
More towards the morning time when we are awake and beginning our day, we will sense a form of structure in our lives. It is almost as if we see the framework that we have been manifesting in many different ways in our lives — and we are prepared to take on the world and get it started.
The Gemstone suggestion for the Morning:
Working with Rutilated Quartz in the morning time (not sleeping with it as it can give one lots of energy) will be great at helping us feel energetic and like we want to get things going. Fluorite will also be a helpful gemstone for us to work with if we feel the need to focus our energies on something.
The Essential Oil Suggestion for the Morning:
Cassia, a close relative of cinnamon, is notable for its wonderful fragrance. Mentioned in the Old Testament, cassia has literally been used for thousands of years both for its fragrance and calming properties.
In the afternoon Uranus and Pluto make their exact square to one another in this grand cross that is even more exact as the next couple of days go by. In this we may feel a high level of inspiration that we are driven towards achieving something that we have deep within us. To some of us, that sort of deep driven feeling will translate into stress and difficulties – to others it will translate into inspiration and feeling like we can take on the world. The important thing to remember is that no matter how it is affecting us, remain grounded and focused and if we are one of the people that this energy is difficult for – then its a great idea to take a deep look, and take note at what is deep within us over the next few days.
This energy reminds us of the metaphor of, what comes out of you when you are “squeezed” is it love, inspiration and drive, or is it anger, frustration and compulsive behavior? Depending on how you answer that question, you should act accordingly to help you grow throughout this grand cross that is among us.
In the evening you may sense a connection between your desire to communicate and express yourself in a deep and meaningful way. You might feel that expression is something that is important to you, and it is – so in whatever way you express yourself, through writing, verbal communication or even some mental communication about your heart’s desire – this is a good evening to do some of that. If you do not feel like talking to others and expressing yourself in that way, then try journaling it out.
The Gemstone Suggestion for the Afternoon/Evening:
Working with Black Tourmaline is a beautiful gemstone for allowing you to feel centered and grounded. At the same time it will bring some happiness to the possible heavy or intense feelings that are around you or other people. Towards the evening when the energies of expression are stronger working with Sodalite and even sleeping with it overnight will be a great idea. Sodalite helps us to communicate our feelings and get our expression out in a creative and healthy mannor.
The Essential Oil suggestion for the Afternoon/Evening:
Patchouli is an excellent essential oil to work with to help keep you grounded while the energy of the earth and universe are busy working overtime this afternoon – and during the grand cross that is among us. Patchouli is a great essential oil for bringing in that feeling of connection to our physical bodies too, so with the sun and moon both in an earth sign this is a good oil to use at the time. Also Grapefruit essential oil would be good to work with, it is fresh has a very invigorating aroma and is sure to uplift the mood and please the senses.

Working with Black Tourmaline or Tourmalinated quartz would be really helpful for you in balancing your energies, allowing the high vibrations of some of those energies to pass through you and quickly and in the calmest and smoothest way possible.Essential Oil Suggestion for the Morning:
Ylang-Ylang essential oil has a very gentle energy which reconnects us with our hearts, it helps restore our lighter childlike nature and innocence and it helps us release emotional trauma. It is used to aid in the treatment of anxiety, arterial hypertension, mental fatigue, palpitations.In the afternoon at 3:28PM EST Mars and Jupiter make an exact square, bringing the energy of the Cardinal Grand Cross even closer into play, so it might be that we are noticing the high energies and even possible tensions or cathartic expressions may be coming out. What is best to do is allow these energies, emotions and inspirations that come to us to have their place and honor them so that we can eventually move into a space where we feel more calm and serene and if we feel like we can not get to a place where we feel calm and serene, then just going with the flow as much as possible and enjoy reminding yourself to live in the moment is advised.Towards the later evening the energies do start to get a little bit more intense, not necessarily in a negative way but in the late night, almost early morning there are a few aspects that happen that are giving us the space to really want to get something moving, be that our body or we simply feel energetic and wired at this time.
The Gemstone Suggestion for the Afternoon & Evening:
Keeping on working with Black Tourmaline or b is a good idea, in fact you might want to keep some of it with you as you travel through the next week. I would also like to add that Pietersite may help anyone that is having a difficult time through this whole transition and navigating through some of the storms.
Essential Oil Suggestions for the Afternoon & Evening:
In addition to continuing to work with Ylang-Ylang; as was suggested in the morning time. Also, working with Tangerine would be helpful, as it brings lots of cheer and joyfulness into our lives. It helps us feel better and lighter when we feel overburdened with responsibility in some way. It invites us to tap into our creative side and bring more spontaneity into our lives.

Wednesday April 23, 2014 – The moon is in Aquarius all day, lending a lighter, airy feeling to our emotions today. It will be a day of other heavier energies so the Aquarius Moon will help us to feel somewhat less weighty when it comes to our emotions.
In the wee hours of the morning at 3:08AM EST Mars connects with Uranus making an aspect to the Grand Cross and with it, brings with an energy that is intense and on point. We might notice this is a night that is challenging for you to sleep because you feel so charged. If that is the case – then just go with the flow and find ways to release the energy in a constructive manner.
Then at 5:16AM EST Mercury slides from the fiery, initiative taking energy of Aries; into the more grounded and earthy energies of Taurus. This will help us communicate ourselves in a bit of a calmer and have it flow out of our mouths in a smoother way. This energy will be more prominent tomorrow as today the shift of Mercury into Taurus is just beginning to take an effect on us.
The other aspect this morning happens at 9:38AM EST and is when Mars connects with Pluto exactly; this is intensifying the energy of the Grand Cross even more – so this morning might be a very deep and intense one where you feel things that are deep down inside of you – come out. Whatever it is that you are either holding down or hiding is likely to come up so that you can face it, understand it either let it go or deal with it in some way. This energy doesn’t need to be negative; it is simply an energy – up to the individual person to decipher how they interpret it.
Gemstone Suggestion for the Morning:
Black Tourmaline (again) is a suggestion for this morning as it was for yesterday too – in fact you can just hang on to your black tourmaline for a couple of days if you like! This gemstone will bring some grounding and happy energy to you. You also might enjoy working with Lapis Lazuil this morning, especially if you are noticing yourself and your communication being a little off or different than usual, lapis will help you be grounded in your words and speak from the heart.
Essential Oil Suggestion for the Morning:
Patchouli is an excellent essential oil to work with to help keep you grounded while the energy of the earth and universe are busy working overtime this afternoon – and during the grand cross that is among us. Patchouli is a great essential oil for bringing in that feeling of connection to our physical bodies too.
In the afternoon we have an aspect at 12:10 between the Moon and Saturn that may have us feeling a little heavier and a little like doing the work we need to accomplish so that we can move into the next phase of our lives, although we might not FEEL like moving into the next phase, the energy is there that we WILL be switching gears soon. Sometimes we need that grounding energy to bring things to a space of being really OK with everything that surrounds us, and this Moon/Saturn connection will give us some stability.
After this aspect the moon goes into its Void of Course phase and stays there until the early morning hours of the following day. This might have us feeling like we just want to get the day over with or that our emotions seem to be weighty even though we feel airy because the moon is in Aquarius. All this is fine and we will push through this, just know if you are having a rough time with anything – which this too shall pass. If you are feeling stress or anxiety then try to do some deep breathing exercises to calm and smooth over any stresses you feel.
Gemstone Suggestion for the Afternoon/Evening:
Aside from keeping that Black Tourmaline around you, you might also like to couple that with Tigers eye. With the energy that is present in the day with the Sun already in Taurus and Mercury moving into the Taurus along with the energies of this intense and exciting grand cross that is among us – Tigers Eye is awesome to help you remain grounded and centered to the point that you are simply observing what is around you, instead of participating in any sort of negative or challenging behavior.
The Essential Oil suggestion for the Afternoon/Evening:
Birch helps us feel supported and for us to feel strong like we are able to stand strong within ourselves. It helps us to have courage as well. Orange or any other type of citrus would be a great one to compliment the others – allowing us to bring joy, focus and optimism into the equation.
Until Tomorrow ~ Starlene & Wendy
The day is a bit calmer than the last several days, but we are still under the spell of the Grand Cross – even though we have a lot of healing, positive energies out today, there could still be some energy zaps and downloads or flares in people’s lives pop up. See them for what they are, learn the lessons you need to learn from them and let the stresses melt away.
The Gemstone Suggestion for the Day:
Sticking with Black Tourmaline, just because it is a staple stone and will help you still remain grounded and centered throughout the shifts and changes is a good idea. You might also like to add Amethyst to the mix which will bring in the Pisces energy that the moon is adding to the table for the day.
The Essential Oil Suggestion for the Day:
Two Essential oils are suggested today, first Palmarosa which will be helpful for the rest of the month. It is helpful for emotional growth and maturity. It helps us overcome any sort of victim mentality, or emotional barriers – allowing us to let go of things that no longer serve us and weigh us down. Also Geranium Essential Oil is great to work with, it is a nice oil used as an emotional healer and helps us to grow and be taken care of.
Friday April 25, 2014 – The moon stays in Pisces all day, allowing us to be tapped into our emotions and dreams. This would be a good energy for us to do meditation, reiki or healing work. We may also work on being compassionate and connect with Spirit in whatever way we do. In the early hours of the morning at 1:01AM EST Venus connects with Saturn and stays connected for the next few days. This energy helps us to feel real with our emotions and creates and sincerity towards things that we love. If there are things or people in your life that are not “real” then we might notice ourselves feeling less drawn to them. It is a perfect time to take inventory of situations and people we are intertwined with and then decide if they are to stay in our lives or its time to move into another direction.
The very early morning hours of today might have us sleeping well or feeling like we are doing some ethereal traveling in our sleep. We might be given some insight to situations in our waking life via our sleep and dreams so when you wake up in the morning journal them down and reflect on them later.
The afternoon gives us an energy of feeling accomplished and satisfied with ourselves there is a caveat to this energy is that we are asked to have some patience with everything. We have to remember that we still have the grand cross happening in the sky and that it still shifting energies and our lives in ways that are continuing to grow – so feel happy and accomplished in what you do but do not be hard on yourself if you are not moving as quickly as you want to. When Mars turns direct in mid May, we will have more energy!
The moon and Venus connect with one another at 4:03PM EST, this energy is very nice and soothing to the spirit as they are in the sign of Pisces together. This may have us wanting to do something artistic or bringing beauty in our lives on some level, so explore your desire to the arts, beauty and what you love this evening.
At 11:27PM EST The sun and Mercury conjoin in the sky, this would give us energy towards communicating ourselves with others and reminds us to pay attention to the smaller details of things.
The Gemstone Suggestion for the Day:
If you’re feeling like you have a difficult time with these energies present, then iron pyrite is very helpful at clearing up any difficult energy you are dealing with. In healing you can also use pyrite to help detoxify your body. Amethyst is also suggested today to help you tap into the energies of the Pisces moon.
The Essential Oil Suggestion for the Day:
Lavender, as it helps with clear, calm communication and gives a good energy for the day in particular.
Saturday April 26, 2014 – The moon slips into pioneering Aries this morning at 6:01AM, this will carry us through the weekend – allowing us to begin the lunar cycle of the zodiac all over again (as Aries is the first sign of the zodiac). This energy is wonderful for us starting our projects and beginning things that over the last few weeks, we have been thinking about.
We might still be feeling a little slow or stuck as Mars is still in retrograde right now, but if not – then start some of those ideas and projects that you wish to start and become part of your “new” year this year. If you recall from the past, we have mentioned numerous times that the recent past and slowly unwinding grand cross is a pivotal point in the year, so treat it like a new year and start your projects, let your ideas flow and begin your process at manifesting that which you desire!
The afternoon brings us a beautiful energy when Mercury kisses Neptune ~ allowing us to express our inner most ideals in a loving and kind way. If we haven’t been writing or journaling our ideas, this energy is an awesome way to get started. This energy strongly supports expression of our biggest dreams and desires so enjoy it and express it and let it all flow out!
The Gemstone Suggestion for the day:
Sodalite is a wonderful gemstone for expression and creativity. If you feel like you are one of those that feel stuck and slower moving than you would like, try sticking some of this in your pocket!
The Essential Oil suggestion for the day:
Tangerine would be helpful, as it brings lots of cheer and joyfulness into our lives. It invites us to tap into our creative side and bring more spontaneity into our lives.
