CRYSTALS FOR 2013: JULY
by Tara Mideaker
Close your eyes...just for a moment...and imagine that you are in your "happy" place. The place the you go in your mind to feel peace and joy.
Welcome back! Was there water wherever your imagination took you? Maybe you were on a beach watching the ocean, or in the mountains with a lake or spring nearby, or even in the shower letting a long, hard day wash off of you. Water is the element that allows us relax and feel protected. It is also a vital and powerful resource that encourages us to reflect and reassess. The month of July is filled with amazing Water energy as we head off into the 3rd Quarter of 2013. The first half of the year is behind you and you want to use the energy of the next few months to consider one question: How do you feel? You have made changes and reached some goals and you should be proud of your accomplishments. But how do you feel? If you feel good that is wonderful and now you can start thinking about what is next and how to keep that feeling. If not, this energy is perfect to help you uncover what will make you happy and discover ways to make that happen.
We get the challenging days over with early in the month. Carry Pink Calcite to combat the pessimistic attitude brought on by Venus and Saturn on 7/1. Abalone Shell will brighten the day while the Sun and Uranus square off on 7/4 bringing low expectations and unexpected disruptions.
And now the awesome news…a Grand Trine between Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Mars from July 17 – 22 could make this one of the best months all year. Keep Selenite & Hematite close for the whole amazing ride. Here are the specifics:
Emerald boosts your many accomplishments when Jupiter Trines Saturn

Moonstone will be your inspirational guide as Mars Trines Neptune

Botswana Agate lets you feel and use the enthusiasm when Mars conjuncts Jupiter
Blue Lace Agate will be helpful during the cosmic reminder to take it easy while Mercury remains retrograde in Cancer for most of the month (until 7/20/13). Morganite enhances another lovely trine with the Moon and Mercury on 7/22 that puts your thoughts, feelings, goals and values all in perfect alignment.
This is a great month for honest assessments, inspired actions and a refreshed outlook that could take you in a new and abundant direction. Enjoy!
