As we graze through Spring, we encounter major astrological phenomenons such as the retrograde, planetary changes, and the discovery of the Black Hole in space. The best way to survive the upcoming cosmic energy is to use the following projects to aid in such transformational energies—if only to help us manifest our goals and to get our seasonal groove back!
Let’s start off our list with “White Sage” from The Hoodwitch to cleanse ourselves, our homes, and personal space. The act of lighting sage, call smudging, gets rid of stale and stagnant energy, adding a pungent vibe to our lives.
Blue June Tarot’s “Joy” bath soak helps us cool down our passionate tempers, brought on from hot headed Aries Season, and helps us calm our tempers, bringing a seasonal “mood boost” to us.
In case the opposite is true, and we need to add a little pep to our steps—the perfect solution is just a soap bar away. Add “The Flying Ram Soap” by Frvje to spice up the bath routine with Aries scents, spices, and flavors.
Chiquita Brujita’s “You Got This” candle will help inspire our creativity as we exit Aries Season and enter Taurus Season. Aries is the spark and manifestation of the dream. Taurus serves to put such visions into tangible reality. This candle will help motivate us all to implement our desires, even when they seem unattainable.
Renee Watt’s “Spider Web Brooch” gives us the inspiration to manifest and bring forth change during Jupiter’s moonwalk, which begins April 10th. Pinning this mystical force to our clothes or bags will align us with our spiritual side.
As we move into earthy Taurus Season on April 20th, it’s high time to keep our energy safe. Applying the lovely “Aura Shield Primer” from The Hoodwitch x Smashbox Cosmetics collab before and after our daily makeup routine will spruce up our vibe with a fresh aura and energetic field.
Taurus Season brings us closer to the artistic side of ourselves, and also allows us to flaunt our best life. With Love by Luna’s nail polish (made for every astrology sign) and crystal nail decals, we can show off our creativity.
The Hoodwitch’s “Obsidian Sphere” will make the biggest mystical cynic a believer. Obsidian is used to protect against negativity (ahem...psychic attacks) from others, as well as helping us heal from past traumas. This is especially helpful during Pluto retrograde, which begins April 24th.
Another protective product for Pluto’s backwards spin is “Florida Water” from Olde Ways. During this metaphoric transit, we may feel anxious (mostly due to fear of change). Florida Water helps spirituality and mentally cleanse the mind, body, and soul.
April 29th brings another retrograde. This time, task master Saturn starts to glide in backwards motion. The “Howlite Mala Bracelet” by Hanuman Heart will keep frustrations at bay, while allowing us to peacefully understand and asses mystical lessons within.
During the Gemini ingress on May 21st, we all may need a break from the rumor mill, which is why Witch Baby Soap’s “Gossip Stopper Hand Salve” will work wonders by allowing our fingers from starting drama before hitting send on emails and text messages.
Another great mystical treat during Gemini Season, is the gift of Tarot. With the “Neo Tarot” deck and book by Jerico Mandybur, we can get the answers all the Mercurial questions we crave by igniting our higher minds and spirits.
