Crystal Energy Grid - October *2015*
By Tara Mideaker
This time of year is one of extremes when it comes to nature. Bright green leaves are suddenly gold and red. One day the weather is warm and sunny and the next is dominated by dark and cold. We are clearly in the midst of change, but fortunately the Universe provides us some wonderful astrological resources to help us continue to thrive by embracing the transformations and making them our own.
Top of Center: New Moon in Libra - October 12th
A Libra New Moon is the perfect opportunity to focus on your relationships - particularly if you have any that could use a fresh start. Libra energy has a natural ability to bring people together and forge meaningful connections that benefit everyone. Remember that the New Moon is your monthly chance for renewal. You want to use this opportunity to view your current relationships (personal, business...all of them!) with a different perspective that will help you find ways to improve upon them. Lepidolite will help you strengthen current relationships and build new connections.
Center of Grid: Sun in Libra - September 23rd - October 22nd
The Sun in Libra brings us balance and harmony that are essential to feeling happy and fulfilled. We live in an intense society where everything feels so imperative that we are driven to operate under so much stress. It is easy to believe that this is the only way to thrive. Use this period to recognize where you need balancing energy and then look for new ways to create new and healthier patterns for yourself. Lapis Lazuli will strengthen your awareness and help you develop more balance in your life.
Beneath Center: Full Moon in Taurus - October 27th
The Full Moon in Taurus will give you the solid foundation you need to complete whatever you have started. We all have things that we just haven't mustered the energy to end once and for all. This Full Moon can give you the confidence to know that you are ready to take those final steps. You don't want to make a mad rush to get something done so that you can move on. Taurus is self-assured and relaxed in its approach because it knows it will be successful. Orange Aventurine will show you how to use this energy to take measured steps that will get you closer to your own personal triumphs.
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 Right: Jupiter Trine Pluto - October 11th
There is an abundance of hope and certainty with a Jupiter/Pluto trine leading the advance for you to achieve personal happiness. You are ready to go after whatever it is that you want for yourself and others and you’re completely confident in your ability to gather the resources needed. You’re going to want to improve something and you’ll be able to do what it takes and see some real results. Blue Topaz will help you build and maintain your personal momentum.
Top Left: Venus Sesquiquadrate Uranus - October 12th
Venus and Uranus will create an atmosphere where you are driven try something different. Anything that is comfortable or predictable is going to feel like shackles keeping you in place while you long to run free. Uranus and Venus are intense planets and their combined energy can feel urgent and demanding. You are going to need to answer the call for change, so use this opportunity to create a new attitude and behaviors that will produce more prosperous energy in yourself and your life. Star Sapphire will provide support while you are in a transformation phase.
Bottom Right: Mars Trine Pluto - October 15th
Mars and Pluto in a Trine will give you a powerful boost of proactive mental and physical energy. Your objectives feel clearly defined and you are more than ready to do whatever it takes to achieve them. You will be especially creative as you figure out different angles to work through any obstacles in your path. If there is something that you abandoned because it seemed too hard or just impossible to accomplish, then use this energy to take a second look. Your renewed perspective and fearless determination will make a huge difference. Smokey Quartz will help you capture the motivational spirit of this energy and use it to resurface buried goals and strengths.
Bottom Left: Saturn Sesquiquadrate Uranus - October 22nd
Saturn’s diligence is being challenged by reckless Uranus and you’re going to feel that conflict within your own daily operations. You will simply don’t want to do what you don't want to do! What you will want to do is be innovative by bringing these very different energies together and making them work for you. Uranus will release some of those limitations imposed by Saturn so that you can find different – and probably better – ways of completing your tasks. Saturn will corral the impetuous energy of Uranus and make it a productive element rather than a deterrent to achieving your goals. You’ll need to flow with the energy, so use Hematite to adjust your process to match the energy.
Finish your Grid by surrounding it with crystals to amplify the energies. Use at least one crystal to represent the Month and then any others that with amplify the energies. Carnelian will represent October and Clear Quartz will amplify the energies of the crystals. I am also adding cards from our Zodiac Crystal cards for more energy. Remember to clear and charge your Grid periodically throughout the month and to focus on your intentions for the Grid when working on it.
