Our Journey - January 2016
Balancing the Elements of Your Birth Chart

Manifesting the Best Year of Your Life!
January 5, 2016



Have you ever wondered if there was something more you could be doing to achieve better balance in your life?

  • To have more quality time with your family and friends?
  • To have a balanced diet and time to exercise.
  • To have ease with your finances?
  • To have time to learn new things?
  • To explore your spirituality?
  • To experience more joy?

If any of these thoughts have crossed your mind, I invite you to read on and explore the Realm of Astrology & Sacred Stones with me in an ALL NEW monthly feature called “Our Journey”.


Each month “Our Journey” will be about encouraging you, to get to know more about yourself, through your Birth Chart and Sacred Stones:

  • To assist you in bringing your elements into balance
  • To provide you with insights about your Sun Sign & Birth Chart
  • To help you release all that is no longer serving you in a positive way
  • To strengthen areas of challenge and build on areas of strength
  • To connect you with the supportive energies of Sacred Stones
  • To provide resources to help you navigate the current Astrological Energies (with a little help from friends and mentors)


There are a number of directions we could go to start this journey together and after considerable thought, I am guided to go back to where my journey began with “The Elements”. Back to 2013-14 when we worked on creating the final “Weekend in the Woods” event, where we focused on the Healing Elements of Nature. So this will be our first focus, starting with sharing with you some of the basics I have learned around “Balancing the Elements of Your Birth Chart.

But before I dive in, we need to make sure you have the tools you need, to go on this journey together… Starting with your Birth Chart!

Don’t have a Birth Chart? I am offering one FREE to all members of my mailing list!  Visit my website, fill out the form and I will send you your Birth Chart so you can follow along as we share different aspects of our Birth Charts each month.

Once you have your Birth Chart, locate the area that looks like this…


This is where you will find the balance of your Elements on the day you were born. (Fire, Earth, Air & Water)

You can see here that in this Chart, this persons Water is low, sitting at 2 and their Fire and Earth are both a little high. So for this person, it is going to be important that they support the Element of Water, as a priority and be mindful of keeping the Elements of Fire and Earth calm.

Steps to Guide You Through this Journey…

1. Your Birth Chart:

Have a look at the Elemental Breakdown of your chart. What Elements are strong and balanced, what Elements need support?

2. Learn About the Elements:

Achieving  balance and mastery of our Elements is a lifetime journey. We have the ability to achieve this with a little focus and guidance.

I have put together some great information for you about each of the Elements, to support you on this journey:  

  • A Description of each of the Elements
  • What it looks like when specific Elements are in or out of balance
  • Sacred Stones to support each Element
  • Tips on how to bring better balance to each Element
  • Affirmations to utilize right away or inspire you to write your own

Now all you have to do is Visit Our Elements Page to learn more about how you can work with these different energies, to help you strengthen them.

3. Create A Plan

Once we have learned the different ways we can bring our Elements into   Balance, we can then set intentions and begin to manifest our desires, with our   thoughts, our words and a plan! Baby steps and a little structure is all that is   needed.

What steps will you take to bring about more balance in your life? 

Born January 21st - February 18th?
Here’s a little extra for all you beautiful Aquarians out there!


Happy Birthday to all my family, friends and Visions in the Woods Members born with the Sun is in the Sign of Aquarius…January 21st to February 18th. Wishing you all a year filled with abundance and peace!


Want to know the Sacred Stones that are most common to your Sun Sign?

I have prepared a list of Sacred Journey Birth Stones that are linked to our Astrological Sun Signs instead of the monthly calendar. Birth Stones linked to your Sun Sign and Birth Chart have much more significance and power for us than general monthly stones created by the jewelry industry.

If you are considering a Birth Stone as part of a gift, this is a great list to utilize. Visit Visions in the Woods Crystal Birth Stones page and also remember to always trust your intuition.

I have also shared a few characteristics about the beautiful Aquarians in our lives, be sure to scroll down to the bottom of that page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at  I welcome your questions, thoughts and feedback!

My intention is for all of us to grow and expand our experiences, to a place of living our lives here on Earth to their fullest! I truly believe Sacred Stones & Astrology can assist us to achieve this. More to come in February!

Until next time!
Lots of love, Deborah
