2020 Chakrubscopes: A Channeled Message from the Crystals

Just as fast as you can snap your fingers, another year and a new decade is upon us. The new year tends to represent a time for evaluation, adjustment, and goal-setting, but it is important to keep in mind that the Gregorian calendar is just one way of keeping time and it’s perfectly fine if these themes don’t resonate with you. You might find more alignment with the astrological calendar that begins at the start of Aries season or perhaps you take each moon cycle as an opportunity to reset and release.

Recent world events might also have you thinking about the future in a different way. In America, white supremacist sentiments are rising and the nation has recently declared war with Iran. In Australia, numerous species face extinction as a wildfire roars through the outback. Already this year is asking us to realign with our values and challenging us to take bold action to protect future generations of human, animal, and plant life on our planet.

Now is the time to draw additional support from our spiritual practices, to nurture ourselves to our fullest expression so that we can show up strong for others. Crystals are just one option for finding support as we journey ahead. A literal touchstone, crystals remind us of the love we carry within, they can help root us into the present moment and pull us away from destructive, spiraling thoughts.

Your 2020 Chakrubscopes reveal which crystal is reaching out to you this year, hoping to extend its healing properties and guide you along your path. Infuse this crystal with a word, phrase, or intention that can carry you through your most joyous and difficult times.

Read your sun, rising, or moon sign if you know them and see which one most resonates.



ARIES

Black Obsidian

As flight attendants say before the plane disembarks, you must put on your own oxygen mask before you can assist anyone else. You might have a tendency to meet others’ needs before your own or to discredit your needs, settling for less than what you deserve. Black obsidian will give you the courage to speak up for yourself, to claim what is your birthright, whether that is happiness, stability, love, or all of the above. Ask yourself where you are compromising in your life and be patient as an answer makes its way to you. Black obsidian will offer protection and loving support as you do the shadow work that is necessary to understand the spiritual and emotional blocks that are preventing you from stepping fully into your power. Perhaps they harken back to childhood or maybe you developed these coping mechanisms as an adult. Whatever the case may be, this year you will gain the strength to stand up for yourself and to recognize your deepest desires not as selfish or excessive, but worthy of being actualized.


TAURUS

Pink Rhodonite

Slow and steady wins the race (except there is no race, only a divine path for you to walk along). Trust in the work that you are doing and be patient with your progress. We live in a world that favors instant rewards, but true growth is a slow burn that occurs under the surface. Pink rhodonite will keep you grounded in your purpose and balance your emotions, allowing you to release any tendency to compare your journey to others. Accept that you are exactly where you’re supposed to be at this moment and look for the lesson, especially in difficult, frustrating moments. Know that every action has an equal and opposite reaction and even if you cannot see the results yet, trust that the foundation you have built will bring them forward. Let go of the desired outcome and believe that whatever is meant for you will find you. Pink rhodonite will help you keep a soft and receptive heart, open to whatever the universe sees fit to send your way.


GEMINI

Orange Aventurine

This year you must remain dedicated to the practices that allow you to create from an authentic and inspired place. You cannot force magic, it is something that you must nurture through intentional acts and visioning. This year might ask you to release old patterns of thinking or behaviors that are blocking you from seeing yourself as worthy of meeting your potential. Orange aventurine wants to light you up, to show you how sacred and powerful you are, to connect you with your desires, to encourage you to play and find the joy in creation, communication, and connection. First you must believe that you can release old stories, that in fact, it is necessary in order for you to truly thrive in your purpose. Ask yourself what allows you to feel safe expressing your deepest truths. How can you create this environment in your everyday life? Orange aventurine will invite a sense of sacred play, nudging your inner child to reveal themselves and share their wisdom.


CANCER

Clear Quartz

Cleanse yourself of the past, of any old attachments or beliefs that are shrinking you from your best self. Clear quartz wants you to step purposefully into the future, to break free from your comfort zone, to have the courage to face the unknown as well as your fears. We are all creatures of habit, but we must also be honest about which habits are serving us and which need to be released. Clear quartz reminds you that you were placed on this earth at this moment for a reason and invites you to get familiar with your power — no, to celebrate it! You are a magical being capable of so much, you only need to decide how you will direct your energy. Clear quartz will help you recognize and heal your shadows, it will help you understand how these thoughts and behaviors once protected you and it will assist you in transforming these qualities so that they can serve you in a more aligned way.


LEO

Rose Quartz

As bold and strong and willful as you are, you are just as much soft and open and vulnerable. Or at least you could be. Rose quartz wants to reacquaint you with your vulnerabilities, to show you that an open, receptive heart can protect you just as much as the outward armor you wear. It will show you that not only are you worthy of giving and receiving love from others, but that in your purest form, you are love. It will reveal the blocks shielding you from this truth so that you can have deeper, more authentic connections with those around you, but most importantly, with yourself. Rose quartz offers a different type of strength, an inner strength that must be nurtured and tended to. This year you are being asked to slow down and listen to your heart’s desires. Often these desires are not so external, but of the more subtle variety. Rather than demanding that you work or do, your heart wants you to notice, to be present, and to appreciate what’s right in front of you.


VIRGO

Blue Aventurine

You must be accountable to your choices and blue aventurine will help you move forward from a place of calm reassurance. If a change of direction is needed, it will assist you in grounding so that you can successfully reroute yourself. Hindsight is 20/20 and we should not berate ourselves for not knowing what would come when we acted in the past. All we can do is absorb these new revelations and commit to honoring them as we move forward. Blue aventurine will help you release judgement and anxiety about where you are and where you’re supposed to be. It will help you find your voice in situations where you feel dismissed or powerless. It will connect you with a higher vision so that you can move forward in clarity and not rely on the ego for direction. Finding balance in your emotions and your mind is a central theme for you this year. Remember that intuition is not fear-mongering forced, but a gentle nudge or whisper that always gives you the option of choice.


LIBRA

Green Aventurine

You must prune the weeds and the decay in order to make room for new growth. You have paved the path for abundance, but now you must clear it so that it has the space to make its way to you. Green aventurine is a stone of opportunity and fortune and keeping it with you will bestow you with blessings. However, the most important element in this equation is your self-belief that you are worthy of receiving and that you have done the work that will bring it forward. Remember that there is a season for everything — for planting seeds and watering them, for trimming the excess and harvesting the bounty. Green aventurine indicates that you have done the work of tending to your garden and that now you must trust in the growth that is occurring under the surface. Try not to anticipate what will break through the soil, but be receptive to whatever growth occurs and embrace it as a gift.


SCORPIO

Nephrite Jade

Do you know that you are royalty, a divine being worthy of love and abundance? You do not need to prove this worthiness nor is it something that can be taken away. It’s an ancient quality that has been instilled in your soul long before you arrived earth side. Nephrite jade wants to remind you of your innate value, that you are someone who deserves tenderness, honesty, and affection. This year you will work on opening up your heart center and beginning to perceive the love that exists within and healing any blocks that prevent you from recognizing this truth. Once you recognize your true value, you can begin to acknowledge the hopes and wishes you have for yourself, the most ambitious dreams that perhaps you never let yourself admit. This stone will also awaken your dream life, sending you messages from your subconscious and creative solutions for any problems you might have. When you find yourself wavering in your self-confidence, nephrite jade will be there to help you find your footing and calm any anxiety you’re experiencing.


SAGITTARIUS

Red Jasper

There is a lot of power and energy available to you, but it won’t come if you’re constantly exerting yourself, in search of the next shiny object to pursue. Red jasper asks you to slow down, to tune into what allows you to feel safe, stable, and secure. Only then can you act as a channel, creating space for your visions to move through you and guide you. Red jasper will give you the strength to find and hold onto your truth when others attempt to deny or belittle it. If you are seeking to heal deep wounds or conduct shadow work, red jasper can act as a powerful grounding tool, reminding you of all that you have survived and the power you hold within you. If you are feeling discouraged, this stone will imbue you with determination and endurance, affirming all that you have to live for and the destiny you are bound to fulfill. It will calm your fire with soothing earth energies, allowing you to feel safe coming home to your body.


CAPRICORN

White Jasper 

If anyone can build from the ground up, it’s you. White jasper will help you let go of all that you’ve outgrown — relationships, patterns, ideas, or behaviors — in a gentle and loving manner. You can recognize the lesson without attaching yourself unnecessarily. It will help you release the guilt or self-judgment that comes from having to begin again in some aspect of your life. As the supreme nurturing stone, it will help you parent your inner child and allow you them to grow without restriction or conditions — a privilege you might not have had in your actual childhood. This is not a year for outward goal setting, but for turning your gaze within and recognizing that you are already whole, that you are perfect as is, and have all that you need. It will unify the areas of your life that are in conflict, instilling calm and tranquility.


AQUARIUS

Amethyst

This stone has the power to take you to alternate dimensions, but first you must clear the cobwebs in your mind and all that unnecessarily weighs you down. The ancient Greeks believed amethyst had the power to sober a drunk mind, and you too can tune into this wisdom. Use it to decipher what in your everyday life is clouding your vision and compromising your clarity. It will give you the strength to commit to new, enriching habits that are in your highest interest and prepare you to release the patterns that are no longer serving you. Amethyst will elevate you above your analytical thinking mind and allow you to see that true clarity comes from a higher place, outside of logic and reason, a place that can only be visited when you are present and still. It will help you approach spirituality with consciousness and intention, tempering your emotions so that otherworldly experiences do not overwhelm you. 

PISCES

Black Obsidian 

As flight attendants say before the plane disembarks, you must put on your own oxygen mask before you can assist anyone else. You might have a tendency to meet others’ needs before your own or to discredit your needs, settling for less than what you deserve. Black obsidian will give you the courage to speak up for yourself, to claim what is your birthright, whether that is happiness, stability, love, or all of the above. Ask yourself where you are compromising in your life and be patient as an answer makes its way to you. Black obsidian will offer protection and loving support as you do the shadow work that is necessary to understand the spiritual and emotional blocks that are preventing you from stepping fully into your power. Perhaps they harken back to childhood or maybe you developed these coping mechanisms as an adult. Whatever the case may be, this year you will gain the strength to stand up for yourself and to recognize your deepest desires not as selfish or excessive, but worthy of being actualized.
