Newsletter - November 21st

Thanksgiving is this Thursday (wishing you all a very delicious one!) meaning two things. One: Small Business Saturday is this weekend! Be sure to pop by to catch our amazing sale. And then, two: the holidays are right around the corner. It’s time to buy presents! Stock up on heartfelt gifts for everyone. Happy Holidays!

The Week Ahead

Monday, November 22nd → The Moon finds itself in its home sign of Cancer for the next two days. This gives us access to a stronger well of emotions than we might normally have access to. Use this transit to reflect on this year & truly understand how everything has made you feel. Now might be a great time to draft those Thanksgiving toasts!

Tuesday, November 23rd → Venus sextile Mars is still going strong in our skies, and will remain within an orb of 1º until December 1st! Pair this with the invigorating energy of the Sun in Sagittarius, and you should be able to walk through the next week with your shoulders back and your head held high. Lead with your heart. It wants to open new doors for you—don’t be scared of what the future holds!

Wednesday, November 24th → Today, talkative Mercury will move into expansive Sagittarius. Sagittarius is the sign of the archer, often depicted by the fabled centaur. We often find that Sagittarius possesses a kind of mythic quality to it, what with it’s bold, fiery, expansive optimism & tendency for the grand. Mercury, a thinking planet, will definitely find itself affected by this transit. Prepare for grand ideas on a very grand scale. Dramatic speeches are a must during this transit.

Thursday, November 25th → We’re wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving! This year, we’re definitely thankful for all of you & your support throughout the year. We’re so grateful to have been able to keep our doors open in spite of all the difficulties the past couple years have thrown our way. Seeing and connecting with you has always been a consistent delight. So, thank you! In observance of Thanksgiving Monarch will be closed Thursday, 11/25.

Friday, November 26th → Fast-moving Mercury is now quickly gaining on the Sun in the sign of the archer; it will move into conjunction tomorrow. This essentially doubles the energies of both celestial bodies, fusing the vibrant, life-giving energy of the Sun with the active, stimulating energy of Mercury. Your curiosity will surely find itself piqued during this transit, and you’ll love a good, activating challenge that requires you to stay on your toes. Family game night, anyone?

Saturday, November 27th → Mark your calendars: it’s Small Business Saturday! This is essentially Black Friday for those of us who don’t open our doors at midnight or sell flat screen TVs. We will be open all day, from 11 to 6, with… drumroll please… 20% off everything in the store! This is a one day only sale, so be sure to pop in on Saturday!

Sunday, November 28th → It seems like most of the aspects in the stars of late have been challenges. Mars trine Neptune is here to break this pattern. The red planet of sex & aggression, still residing in fixed water sign Scorpio, finds itself in perfect harmony with Neptune, planet of dreams & spirituality in its home sign of Pisces. This creates a sensual energy for today as your passion is linked to what lies just below the surface. You might find yourself connecting with people on a much stronger level than you typically would.

A Message from Monarch

This week we got in shipment of our delightful soapstone carvings from Kenya as well as a new shipment of our $20 earrings! Did someone say stocking stuffers? (Or they could be a little gift from you to yourself—we won’t tell anyone.) We will also be getting in more candles soon, as well as some tarot cards, so keep your eyes peeled for those. Our featured item of the week are our elephant boxes! They will be 10% off through Saturday (11/27).
