Crystal Energy Grid - February *2015*
By Tara Mideaker
The Universe shifts on January 20th with the Sun's move into Aquarius, a New Moon in Aquarius (a "Super" Moon) and Mercury's first retrograde for 2015. Aquarius will dominate the energies of February and it is symmetrically the perfect time of take advantage of its benefits. Aquarius is rebellious, inventive, unexpected and innovative. It is about changing the mind - whether it is yours or others - and this is the foundation to enact great and lasting change in your life. Once the mind is committed and determined, then all the rest will fall into place. Use this month to relax, refocus and emerge revitalized just in time for the first stirrings of spring that will breeze in with the elements of March.
As a reminder, this grid will follow the "astrological" month of January 20th to February 18th. While this Grid follows that pattern, the energies will prevail throughout the month so you can put your personal Grid together at any time. The energy is always available whenever you need it so don't be concerned with the illusion of time. Here are some suggestions for your February Grid:
CENTER OF GRID
Your center crystal represents The Sun in Aquarius as the energy that will dominate throughout the month. This energy is analytical, ground-breaking and inventive. It will not only help you to figure out what you need to do and where you need to go, but it will offer interesting options to help you get there. This is powerful energy for change and Amethyst Cacoxenite is a perfect conduit for it. Use it to enable you to receive insights, process them and add your innovation and personal power to create new ideas (see photo 1). Amethyst Cacoxenite combines Amethyst, Clear Quartz, Smokey Quartz, Rutile, Goethite, Lepidocrocite, Cacoxenite and traces of Hematite. Use a combination of these crystals instead of a single one if that is more convenient. Please see photo 2 as an example. The crystal is amplifying your intention so follow your instincts when it comes to choosing your crystal(s) for the most powerful energy.
TOP OF CENTER
This crystal will represent the New Moon in Aquarius which prepares you internally for the month ahead. This will be our first “Super” Moon of 2015, which means it appears closer to Earth and you may feel its energy more intensely. There is also a lot of tumultuous activity in the sky so there is a potential for tension. If you can, block out the extraneous energy for now and focus on the opportunity that this New Moon presents, which is a clear and powerful call to action. Use this energy to understand what needs to change within you in order for you to get what you want. This may demand a personal commitment that won’t be easy, but if you accept the challenge and set your intention you will take a huge step in the right direction. Cavansite will encourage self-reflection, offer inspiration and enable you to make positive choices. (See photo 1 & 2)
This crystal will represent the Full Moon in Leo on February 3rd. This moon phase always marks a moment of completion and this month you will recognize that now is the time to make things right for yourself and others. You are done with compromise and surrender and you are prepared to do whatever is necessary to achieve your goal. Amber will reinforce your confidence and faith in your personal strength. The combination of Leo and Aquarius energy will help you create successful plans, act upon them and feel assured of your inevitable success. (See photo 1 & 2)
The Quarters of your Grid will represent the significant transits of the month. When considering the placement on your Grid remember that the Left side is receptive and will open you to new ideas, while the Right Side is productive and will assist you with putting those ideas into action.

Top Left: Mercury is retrograde in Aquarius and it is time to let go of old misconceptions about yourself. Use this energy to turn any feelings of “I can’t” into “I can”. Are you already confident in your abilities? Good! Now use this energy to push you to get moving and commit to what you will do next. Bloodstone will combat stress while it boosts your endurance and creativity.
Top Right: A Sun/Mercury conjunction on January 30th will offer a chance at renewal. You may need to revisit things that you thought were complete but that can work in your favor as long as you approach it from a positive mindset. A second chance to do something differently is a rare gift and you don’t want to see it as a burden. Use Fuchsite to feel rejuvenated and joyful at the opportunities that come your way.
Bottom Left: Venus and Neptune in Pisces will mix to produce an idealistic atmosphere on February 1st. Enjoy the fantasy but be cautious about buying into the unrealistic energy. Your dreams can and will come true - but they need a strong dose of practicality and reality to grow beyond your imagination. Black Onyx is supportive and provides vital grounding.
Bottom Right: A Sun/Jupiter Opposition on February 6th will increase your drive to grow but will also produce intense conflict as you realize the difference between duty and desire. You want to objectively consider your goals and make necessary revisions to see if it is possible to satisfy both while controlling urges to go overboard one way or the other. This is a tricky transit that occurs only once a year and it can be very powerful. Larimar will remind you of how powerful you are, so that you can use the advantages of this transit while finding peace to replace any stress and confusion.
Finish your Grid by surrounding it with crystals to amplify the energies. Amethyst is perfect for February since it connects you to higher sources while encouraging and supporting your inner strength. Try to use at least one crystal to represent the month and then any others that with amplify the energies. I am using Clear Quartz . (See photo 4)
Remember to clear and charge your Grid periodically throughout the month and to focus on your intentions for the Grid when working on it. Be open to working with other crystals. Here are suggestions for February: Ammonite, Angelite, Azurite, Garnet, Hessonite Garnet, Halite, Fluorite, Aqua Aura, Lodolite, Shattuckite, Hematite, Feldspar, & Rhyolite.
Have a great month and be sure to rest and clear away the clutter that you don't need so you will be ready for new energies next month.
