Crystal Oracle Message for April 19-20, 2023

Happy new moon in Aries solar eclipse!!! Thursday, April 20, 2023 | 12:12am EST.

A few days ago I was inspired to do a crystal oracle reading for the new moon in Aries solar eclipse. Before now, I hadn’t done any readings or messages in conjunction with the eclipses, but I was so excited to do this for the mere fact that I was curious. I’m always curious… about everything, almost.

As I was inspired, I began shuffling The Crystal Spirits Oracle Deck by Colette Baron-Reid, asking Spirit for any messages it would like to share as it regards the new moon in Aries solar eclipse. The Crystal Spirits Oracle card that flipped out was Amethyst. While I’m familiar with Amethyst’s message, I was curious to see how it connected, but as I read through it, I saw how it speaks directly to and connects to everything that is happening and what we’re all experiencing individually and collectively. I’m so excited to share this message with you. My intent is that you’ll be able to receive clarity and direction for whatever area of your life this resonates with. I request the most benevolent outcomes for you on your journey of ascension, may it be more than you expect or imagine. Thank you Guardian Angels. Thank you Universe. Thank You!

The Crystal Spirits Oracle: Amethyst

Essential Meaning: Familiarity, unconscious habits, old patterns in need of being released

Autopilot takes over when we require a rest from mental overload. While this reaction can serve us well, Amethyst Spirit brings a reminder to stop surrendering to the familiar, be mindfully present to the now, and examine your habits. Are they working for you the way you want them to? Are you overdue for a new routine, perhaps a small, simple shift that can make a huge difference? What could you say more often to those you love, or do more often to nurture yourself when your “go-to” is to sacrifice for others? What habits could you begin to develop today to build your security and increase your prosperity? Can you see how the old habits these replace should have been discarded long ago?
Amethyst Spirit’s message to you is to be conscious of your habits so that you don’t fall asleep to your potential for transformation and healing. You deserve so much more than you have right now, so awaken to your ability to co-create anew, one replaced habit at a time.


Relationships can be like a comfortable pair of slippers, well broken in. But amethyst is here to awaken you to the exciting possibilities of an even richer partnership or relationship with someone you feel a connection to. Step out of the same old same old and into a new way of interacting, perhaps something as basic as saying “thank you” or “I love you” more often, or speaking your truth with love and conviction even in relation to seemingly trivial things. Big journeys of healing start with small steps, such as asserting your need to be listened to even when you say something that might make someone you care about uncomfortable – or to pause when someone is giving you new information that might make you feel defensive. The energy of rediscovery is calling to you to deepen your trust and intimacy – don’t be shy! You can do this!

Playing it safe can mean not taking risks or, paradoxically, taking big risks to create that familiar and comfortable drama. Are you aware of some money habits that are ready to be questioned and changed, so that you can get off the roller coaster of Oh no, it’s a disaster!/Oh yes, I’m on a roll and everything is going to be fantastic! Or, are you afraid to even look at your relationship with finances because you don’t trust yourself to be able to build your wealth? Amethyst is here to urge you to give up the drama and fear and simply pay attention to your patterns related to prosperity. Trust that wealth is your natural state. The Conscious Universe is supporting you in making the inner changes you need so that outer conditions can begin to reflect your new internal state. Free yourself to enjoy the wealth you deserve by breaking the chains of old habits.


Amethyst calms our minds, helping us release attachment to all we think we “should” be doing and allowing us to relax into being. Meditation with amethyst clears the mind of extraneous thoughts, disengaging us from the busyness of our daily lives and offering us the opportunity to connect to Spirit. It is a wonderful stone to assist in exploring and trusting our intuitive abilities.

In All Things Give Thanks

Gratitude is the #1 key for me. It has helped me immensely along my journey and transformation.

This is how. . .

I have a picture in my home that says, In All Things Give Thanks.

But what does this really mean?

For me, this was looking at everything that has ever happened in my life, from my childhood on up. Everything I’ve ever experienced – I had to choose to be grateful for. I had a pretty tough childhood, to say the least, but who hasn’t? When I decided to be grateful for it all, that’s when my life changed. I moved from a place of being the victim and taking full responsibility. That’s a very hard thing to do, a very hard pill to swallow for most. But doing this I chose to sit in the seat of gratitude. Understanding this, all of the series of events from the time I was born until now is what made the person I am right now today. It played an important part in shaping my perceptions, how I perceive and view things, my current thought process, and my evolution – has made me into who I am, right now today, and guess what? I love who I’ve become and still yet becoming.

So, in essence, I appreciate what the neglect, the hurt, the pain, the traumas, the abuse – all of it, produced. At the time is was happening, of course, I didn’t like it, and didn’t understand it. All I knew was that it hurt. Now later on in life I am able to innerstand that it was all necessary, and that’s why I can say I’m grateful.

You see, when “I” healed myself of the past it was then that my present begin to align for me. When you don’t heal yourself of your past, all of those programs and blocks follow you in every aspect of your life. They follow you in every decision you make because everything you do is from the lens of your past, by this, you create walls and more blocks in your life. When you free yourself of that, everything you do now is from the present. That was a very big one for me. Once I understood that the past nor the future exists and that all we ever have is the present, that completely shifted my entire life.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that what we feel about the past in not valid and that it’s not true, however, what I am saying is understand that everything and every person is a lesson; a teacher. Choose to understand what those experiences and persons taught you about yourself. See the lesson in the hurt, and that’s what you choose to become grateful about. I like to say it like this…. Life is never happening to you, but life is happening for you. When you look at it from that position, it really does put everything into perspective. That’s how you live in the present, knowing that all things are working together for the good. Even what we may feel is the worst possible thing ever, it’s actually working for your best good.

The key thing is this, resistance. When we are resistant to the things we feel are bad or negative, we’re actually attracting more of that same energy back into our lives. So don’t get stuck there. Understand this, what seems bad or negative is a lesson or a teacher. So instead of focusing on what seems bad or negative, we’re able to appreciate the lesson from it and grow thereby.

This is how you find good in the bad always, and that’s how you’re able to fully embrace this concept, the idea of “In All Things Give Thanks.” As this becomes a model for your life, instead of the resistance, you will see that you will begin attracting more favorable outcomes in your life! Energy begets energy, whether good or bad. The more bad energy you put out, the more you get in return. The more good energy you put out, the more you get in return.

Find gratitude in all things! By doing this, you are collapsing old time lines, paradigms, programs, blocks, and old systems in your life. You now create new paradigms, reconstructing your neural pathways and essentially your DNA.

When you consistently sit in a seat of gratitude, you are able to give thanks in all things.
