Having An Oracle In Your Pocket During The Venus Retrograde (and Post-Retrograde)

Having An Oracle In Your Pocket I Pendulums Crystals Oracles Abundance

With smart phones today, it is almost like having an oracle in your pocket. You can reach out to your astrological app, your YouTube tarot reader, your oracle app in the touch of the fingertips. However, sometimes you just need a little more support from the universe, and I found that not only in crystals, but in the most amazing baby crystal wand.

I found this small business online that creates these amazing vibrational essences. I have been getting more into astrology, how the planets support us. I found this astrological divination set (think like an astrological Ouija board without the evil possessions, ha ha) where I could connect in meditation with the Nakshatras. The Nakshatras are the lunar houses in Hindu and Indian astrology. If we think of Western astrology as being your personality and 3D interactions with the world, Vedic astrology is mutable and unfixed as the stars are always in movement. I found myself so interested in this because I know that my Vedic Sun is different than my Western Sun, but when I look into my Mercury, Mars and Venus, it is a much more similar pattern to what Western astrology says about my personality.

Mars can be that influential planet that and creates a stubborn attitude in regards to your Mercury and Venus. My Vedic Mercury and Venus are both Venus, and my Sun and Rising in the traditional Western astrology are both Venus. So no matter how far I try to move away from it, I am very much the double edge sword of Venus. I feel that is why when Venus retrograde comes into play, it kicks my ass. Add into this year where Venus retrograde retraced it steps in post-retrograde through Gemini (until tomorrow, July 29th) and I have been in the most extreme internal conflict. I guess that it is lucky that I am not a Gemini, because Gemini got their ass handed to them having the Venus retrograde happen during their season.

Because I was so alone during this retrograde/post-retrograde I actually was drawn into the Nakshatras and ordered the Nakshatra divination set which comes with the 27 Constellations Temple Essence (helps you become aware of the Star energies of each Nakshatra and how this energy can contribute to your daily life) and a set of Celestial Gemstones representing the 10 planets and planetary positions. I also decided I was drawn to buying the Ardra Nakshatra Essence (helps those who are prepared to make radical changes in their lives and those who need to make sense of it all after experiencing a major emotional disasters) and the baby crystal wand, which started acting like a pendulum almost the second I brought it out of the box.


I started wearing the crystal, and found that it guided me in ways that I didn't quite expect. I would make decisions, and later find that they were fully to my advantage even when I wasn't sure initially. And when I wear it out of the house, since I don't have it on a chain yet, just the string it came on, I usually put it in my pocket (you could totally put it in your bra) and I just feel like I have this tiny oracle in my pocket that I can use when I feel less than secure in making a decision. This crystal wand that I chose has the Peridot, Emerald, Amethyst, Citrine and Clear Quartz crystals. The Emerald and Citrine complement each other by attracting prosperity and abundance in all things. Peridot opens up new doors of opportunity and amethyst awakens our psychic ability and intuition, allowing the prosperity to flow in. It connects to the planetary influence of Saturn, Venus, Sun and Jupiter - which are all very aligned to my charts. Also it will support the 2nd, 4th, 6th and 7th chakras. During Venus retrograde having the extra support for my sacral, heart, third eye and crown chakra has been super helpful. You can often see me wearing the wand when I am doing my readings on YouTube or Patreon.

Yes, the King of Cups still messed me up in the retrograde, and I still felt a lot of energy that felt like I was being punished for being open in terms of the love I felt - but Ardra has helped me release a lot of those emotions via tears, and with the oracle support I feel like I am being true to myself, and my path. I know that as we exit out of the post-retrograde things should become clearer. I hope so because with the summer heat here in the Pacific Northwest having arrived, too many more teardrops will leave me dehydrated. I already had my first sob of the day on the way home today, minerals in, gemstones in, sadness out.
