A lil' update from us:
Who was very stoked for Mercury to station direct? It was almost like immediate relief from old patterns and shitty thought loops for me. And I STG I rarely feel affected by them! Either they're getting stronger or I'm getting more sensitive to them, either way I am here for the lessons and integration. But still, shit was BRUTAL.
Brit and I are officially not living in the same space for the first time in like 6 years?! While it makes spontaneous creating a bit more difficult, I think it also frees up some space for us to tackle projects that we've wanted to do, like a podcast! We tried it but honestly sitting down across from someone you live with to record the conversations you have felt inorganic. I feel like recording over Zoom now will give it a bit more space to grow. We will see tho! If you'd be interested in a podcast, please shoot us an email or DM with what you'd love to hear us talk about!

Our personal power comes from the fire within. How this internal fire supports us, is a reflection of how we tend to it. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and represents the energy of initiation and beginnings, the spark that ignites action in our life.
As the Moon swells in her peak of light, illuminating the sign of Aries, we can look at the things within our life that were once sparks, that have now grown into fires which fuel our life.
What are you currently celebrating that is a result of your willpower and strength put into action? What are you proud of? How has your independence and self-confidence supported you over these past six months?
Identifying your strengths, take this moment to honor yourself for all you’ve overcome and the confidence you have in your abilities. How our internal fire is burning, is the key to how we feel about ourself and our abilities. If you feel you are lacking self confidence, fan the flames. Eat warming foods, bathe in the Sun, strengthen your core. This is a time to honor yourself, your passions and the life you’ve created from your independent spirit.
Scents for Aries
Aries are the natural born leaders of the zodiac. They aren't afraid to capture an entire room with their fiery energy and passion. So on this full moon try strong + impressive scents that make you feel like a boss. We're looking at tobacco, musk, coriander, leather, anise, patchouli, or even pink peppercorn. Get creative, stand out.
Colors and Fabrics for Aries
Normally when you think of Aries red and other fiery colors may come to mind. For this full moon however, we want to transition from that Libra energy slowly with softer versions of these eye catching colors. We suggest fuchsia red, apricot orange or saffron yellow. Even white can be a great option for a softer entrance to this full moon energy. For textiles we're gravitating towards fabrics that make you feel like a boss. So wear whatever makes you feel ready to take charge! Whether that’s getting dressed up in a fitted suit, workout gear, or even throwing on a touch of lace- wear what makes you feel empowered.
Gemstones for Aries
Indulge the best of Aires qualities with bloodstone for a boost of bravery and courage. Carnelian for empowered leadership and amplifying your creative flow. Amber is another lovely stone for this full moon as it aids in decision making, strengthens intellect and helps your desires come to fruition.

Ritual for the Aries Full Moon
This ritual is about creating an amulet for bravery. You can take this amulet with you anywhere and use it whenever you need a little extra confidence going forward. This ritual is best on the Aires full moon, as this is perhaps the bravest sign of the zodiac.
To get started, you need the amulet or object you wish to dedicate to this ritual- ideally a red gemstone or crystal. A gemstone is recommended so that you can wear it or just carry it with you in your pocket or purse. But if you don’t have a red stone, substitute any other hard, palm sized or smaller object, so long as it is red or symbolizes bravery in some way and you don't mind if it gets dirty/wet. Feel free to get creative in what you choose!
For the first step of this ritual if you have a yard where you can bury things, that is best, but if not, set up a small pot with some soil. First, bury your object either in the pot or outside in your garden (just leave a marker so you don’t forget where!). As you bury it, meditate on how you are also burying your baggage and visualize yourself moving forward bravely, with confidence.
The next morning, or when you're able, unbury the object and bring it to your altar/sacred space. Now set up your blessing tools. Gather some thyme or another herb that symbolizes bravery and strength. Bundle it or toss it in a fireproof bowl to burn. Lay out a small bowl of water as well.
Next, burn the thyme, put the fire out and pass the object through the smoke. As you do, think about the smoke obscuring your fears. Finally, pour the water over the object, cleaning it and also meditating on how you are washing away any hesitancy. Now your object is ready to be used as an amulet. Simply carry it with you whenever you need extra support or need a boost of confidence to go about your day.
