Plan With Me – October: Astrology Forecast, Tarotscope, and Goals & Intentions

September was the month I finally started to get my shit together. After a tough few months dealing with constant anxiety, I was prescribed an antidepressant. This is my first time taking medication like this and, while it’s quite nerve-wracking, I’m feeling more hopeful about the future. I also took a beautiful 10 day vacation (recap coming to the blog soon but posted below some pics from my Instagram!) that was the perfect reset I needed. All in all, I would say September was a pretty good month!

#ThursdayThoughts: A Discourse on Consumerism

Shopping is fun, it’s so much fun. One of my favorite pastimes is to go to the mall on the weekends and window shop. I’m too impatient to try things on, so I’ll look at everything in person and mull on it for a few weeks and, if the want is still there, purchase it online. That way I can look forward to the package arriving, my very own mini Christmas that takes place every few weeks. My bank account is my own, so no one can see the charges I’m putting on it, and I usually get home before my boyfriend does so I have time to unpack my gifts and throw out the evidence. It’s all a fun game to me, or it was.

Plan With Me – September: Astrology Forecast, Tarotscope, and Goals & Intentions

August was not the gentle month I was hoping for. I struggled with a lot of anxiety for the majority of the month, something I haven’t had to deal with so consistently in so long, and then my dog passed away. August really decided to test me, huh! Reflecting on it now, I can see that during these hardships I leaned on my family and friends for support. I was very open and vulnerable with my anxiety and started a support group chat with others that confided in me their similar struggles. It was terrifying to be so vulnerable but I found a supportive community of people because of it. When Jake passed away, I immediately sheltered myself in my family’s love and we got each other through the first few days without him. This month just proved to me how crucial family and friends are during times of need.

A Peek Inside a New Moon Ceremony

Hey guys! I mentioned in a recent post that I had plans to go to a new moon ceremony and I got a few questions about what that sort of thing is like so I thought I would share my experience. The ceremony was hosted at Sacred Roots in Long Beach, CA. They host new moon ceremonies every month and I had been once before, back in December when I was really going through it with my anxiety. It was a bit of a tough experience solely because of my anxiety, so I was excited to head back and give it another go now that I’ve been in a better mindset. Plus, I was going with my sister and doing anything wellness-related (or pretty much anything at all) with her absolutely makes my day. We both had relatively stressful days so the magical night that followed was exactly what the holistic doctor ordered.
