It’s Scorpio season until Nov. 22! Scorpio season is a time of intense emotions and revealing truths, which can be overwhelming for some people.

The Moon is in Taurus as of Nov. 7, and on Nov. 8, we have a Full Moon. Full Moons tend to heighten our emotions, as it is a time of high energy.

Full Moons are an opportune time to release things that no longer serve us, and begin anew. Due to that, it’s a good time to let go of any resentment.

This is a good time to write a letter to the universe and describe what you are grateful to get rid of. For example, “I am thankful to be letting go of my oversensitivity.” It’s also a great time to place any crystals you may have on a window ledge so that they can be cleansed by the Moon.

Mars is currently retrograding in the sign of Gemini. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, which is the planet of communication and thought processing. Mars is the planet of passion and action.

This may mean that until Jan. 1, 2023, we may feel more argumentative. Our thoughts may also be chaotic. The good thing about retrogrades is that it forces us to change for the better, and after this time period, we may find ourselves better at setting boundaries, communicating our thoughts, and having more breakthroughs.

The crystal of the week is black tourmaline!

Black tourmaline is good for grounding, protection, and easing anxiety. This will help keep us calm during Mars retrograde, and bring us peace as we push through the Full Moon.
