It’s October stoner Aquarius! The first full month of Fall. The days are growing shorter while the trees are shedding their leaves in anticipation of the frosty winter blanket they will soon be wearing. As you look around you will notice most others in your orbit are stocking up their stash jars, pulling out their warmer wardrobe, and generally preparing to be holed up in their smokey sanctuaries until the Sun returns.
But not you stoner Aquarius. You might switch out your rope sandals for cozy mukluks, trade your bathing suit for the warmth of your comfy hoodie, and make sure that your own stash is both frosty and FULL; but you have no plans of letting a little cold or cloudy weather slow your roll this month!
While your more complacent cannabis cohorts may be content spending hours on the couch binging shows, you will be busy making moves and manifesting the change you want to see.
Remember this on your stellar journey: Sometimes it is the changes you can’t see which will be the most significant.
You play the role of the mindful marijuana mediator, and cannabis confidant to the smoke circle. You are there for the canna-fam. Whether they just need someone to share a bowl with, or a sounding board of empathy, your well-balanced wisdom is appreciated.
But, this month stoner Aquarius, before you start in on your selfless service of others, you have to ask yourself a most quintessential question: What do YOU need?
This season, it is your turn under the magnifying glass. Not only in a critical light, but with a contemplative gaze, and constructive intent. You are always ready with sage advice for others, but identifying and working through your own emotions can feel like a foreign concept.
This month you must toke time for self. Maybe you are contemplating a substantial switch up; like changing your occupation or career path. It could be as simple as diversifying your smoking credentials by switching from Indica to Sativa strains. Or, something somewhere in between; like telling your cannabis companion that you just need a little more space.
Toke time for solo smoke sessions to calm and clear your mind. Just you, the sacred herb, and your favorite pipe.
My well-meaning Water Bearer, by no means should you skip out on social smoke circles, or actively avoid helping your cannabis companions grow and rise above. Just make sure you are putting in the care required to make your own garden flourish and thrive.
