My Zodiac Box “Leo” Review November 2018
When you first sign up for My Zodiac Box, you’ll answer some preference questions like your zodiac sign (of course), birthday, jewelry colors and sizes, if you have a bathtub, and if you’d like to receive clothing. This means each box will be curated specifically for you!
It comes with a booklet with all the details you need to enjoy your box.
The inner page has all of the items featured in the box.
On the back, you’ll find your horoscope for the month.
Let’s dive into the items!
This candle has a beautiful cinnamon and vanilla scent. It also has a hidden tigers eye in it that I can’t wait to discover and add to my collection. The wick is one of those really fun cracking wooden types, which I love listening to on a quiet night.
Cast Iron Mini Cauldron
This is the cutest little thing! This tiny heavy cauldron is just the perfect size for burning incense or storing your favorite stones. I also used mine for smudging.
I have very mixed feelings about commercial dream catchers, but I can understand why they wished to include on in this month’s box with its focus on dreaming and astral travel. It would have been nice to know a little more info on where this one came from. It is wrapped in faux suede and has naturally colored feathers. If you would like to purchase a dream catcher of your own, I highly recommend buying a piece made by a Native/Indigenous American, as these pieces have deep cultural significance and it is always a good idea to support artisans from the culture of the item you are purchasing.
Carved Dreamcatcher Box – Retail Value $4.45
This is a beautiful box, but once again I really wish this item came with more info about its origins. This subscription always sends super curated items and I wish they took the opportunity to explain where the products came from and if they are Native-made since they specifically use Native American imagery. The box itself is really beautifully carved and perfect for stashing special letters, jewelry, or your favorite dried flowers or stones.
Dream Spirit Smudge Stick
This smudge stick smells lovely. Smudging is another Native ritual that has become really “trendy” lately, so I feel it is only right to mention that the smudging ritual is sacred, meant for purification, and not to be taken lightly. There is also a lot of discussion right now regarding the sources of sage that ends up in commercial stores and I firmly believe in knowing where your botanicals come from and who they support. I highly recommend finding a responsible source for all your sage related smudging needs, or better yet, grow and make your own! Many different plants can be used in bundles. My personal favorites are a combination of lavender, my own garden sage, and rose petals.
This herb is said to encourage lucid dreaming, which seems really exciting! I have tried lucid dreaming a few times, always without success. I am totally going to stash this little sachet under my pillow tonight to see if I can finally do it!
I never have enough journals and I love this one because I am very proud to be a bold Leo! I tried to find its value online, but the Etsy page on the back of the journal is not active.
Gemstone Trio- Lodolite, Kyanite, and Angelite
Blue Kyanite is an interesting stone because it neither accumulates or retains negative energy. It is a great stone for truth-speaking.
Lodolite is a type of included quartz and is also one of my favorite stones because the inclusions often look like little landscapes. Use this one for healing, cleansing, and energizing your space.
Angelite is one of the prettiest blue stones in my opinion. It is a soothing and spiritual stone that is known to be comforting in times of transition. Basically, it is the perfect stone to have close by for a new year.
The Verdict: My Zodiac Box always does a great job in curating items around a specific theme. Each item is always well thought out! I wish there had been more info regarding the items referencing or borrowing from Native American culture, but I did appreciate the extra info on how these items influence dreaming and astral walking practice. I also loved the beautiful stones and darling little cauldron sent this month. The candle had such a delicious scent and I never have enough journals!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? The first box you’ll receive is their Welcome Box that will look something like the one Marne received in April and it should ship right away. After that, you will get charged on the 7th of each month and boxes ship around the 27th of each month, so you most likely won’t get it until early the following month.
