One of the coolest things I get from tracking the movement of the planets is the corroboration of world events with the planetary influences. Occasionally, like this week of Uranus stationing retrograde – revolutionary, rule-breaking, ceiling-smashing history will be made at the Democratic National Convention: a woman is being selected to run for president of the United States. Not only that but she stands in an election that is hers to lose. The Republican party is in smithereens, shaken to the core by a low-vibration Uranian expression of the wild card – the power of the unexpected, the shocking. Hilary, on the other hand, is the higher-vibration Uranian expression of innovator, visionary, care for the community and their needs, a more widely resonant thought form in the American public: people just want to be nice with one another, be decent, and alleviate suffering where we can. So what a perfect week to bring in the highest vibration, breakthrough, expression of personal and collective freedom through interconnectedness and mutual support, the perfect expression of Uranus stationing retrograde at 24 degrees Aries, the sign of the fearless warrior, the one who never gives in, never gives up, ever. A warrior for the people. This is Diana, the huntress, at her Divine Feminine power expression. It is amazing to be alive at a time when the Divine Feminine in her protective, caring, compassionate warrior guise is so exquisitely expressed in Hilary Clinton and all the fabulous women who made her political rise a reality.
Yellow calcite is a warm, inviting crystal that supports a vibrant 3rd chakra, activating and stimulating your Will center, the solar plexus. A vibrant 3rd chakra allows for Leo’s full expression: LOVE for all, beginning with your SELF. LEO, ruled by the Sun, is life-giver and sustainer, to be respected and managed with awareness and care. Yellow calcite is rich in layers of honey-colored crystal, smooth and inviting to be touched, resinous in appearance. Meditating with yellow calcite reminds the body to align with hope, possibility, and creativity – warm, Sun-kissed possibility that is born of your natural creative impulses.
Calcite is one of the families of crystals that should not be cleansed in water. Water will dissolve calcite. To cleanse your calcite after meditating smudge with sage, holy palo santo wood or sweetgrass. You can also place your calcite on a slab of selenite. Selenite, a self-cleansing crystal also not to be placed in water, clears and cleans other crystals. A must-have in your crystal arsenal!3rd chakra, calcite, crystal care, crystal cleansing, crystal prescriptionmeditation, palo santo, sage, selenite, Sun in Leo, sweetgrass, Yellow calcite
Sodalite is one of the deep blue stones used by the ancients to access full contact with Divine Guidance. Sodalite is solid, grounding you to EARTH energy while supporting full, open contact through your 5th and 6th chakras. You want to keep yourself grounded and connected to the Earth as the Moon peaks to full, while feeling the full illumination to be able to release what no longer serves. Feelings will definitely rise to the surface as you release – let them! As you meditate with Sodalite ask for the wisdom of the ancestors, who also had to navigate extremely challenging times, for guidance and support.
Remember to cleanse your Sodalite after meditating. Submerge the crystal into a bowl of water. Sprinkle with Himalayan salt. Let sit for at least 2 hours, overnight is best. Keep out of sunlight, like you would for all your crystals. Crystals are born and grow deep in the Earth so in order to keep their brilliance, keep out them of the sun.
