Crystal Energy Grid - September *2015*
By Tara Mideaker
Virgo rules the sky in September and it is time to get down to business. You want to use this energy to determine your purpose, establish your base of operations and create a detailed plan to achieve your goals. A plan is great to kick things off, but actions will be vital to the successful use of this energy. Virgo can keep you focused in your efforts, while it lets you recognize your challenges and figure out how you will get the best of them. This is your month to become grounded, so let’s find the crystals that will help you to find your place and push you to move forward.
Top of Center: New Moon in Leo - August 14th
A Leo New Moon generates a flow of providence that will follow you as the month progresses. Remember this energy continues to grow right up to the Full Moon, so you have plenty of time to work with it. Leo is always successful, so now is when you want to follow your passions and know that, while things may not end up as you expect, they will end up in the best possible place for you. One of the greatest benefits of this New Moon is that it will get you started on creating new possibilities. It is also going to get you noticed, so be sure to show the world your best, because really good things can come from this recognition. Use Picture Jasper to create the abundance that you envision for yourself and others.
Center of Grid: Sun in Virgo - August 23rd
It is a big shift in energies from fun-loving, prideful Leo to modest, labor-focused Virgo. This is a definite sign that it is time to get back to work with Virgo's attention to detail, quest for perfection and willingness to do whatever it takes to create an ideal situation to help you out. Virgo is a practical Earth sign with a lot of heart, so expect healthy habits and philanthropic activities to rise to the top of your priorities right now. This can be a very productive time where you can put your dreams and ideas into motion - but you are going to have to work for it. Wishing and hoping won't work with Virgo energy, so use Amazonite for stamina and motivation to follow through and make things happen.
Beneath Center: Full Moon in Pisces - August 29th
The Full Moon in Pisces signifies that it is time to wrap up anything that you have been dreaming about and turn it into a reality. You have all the Virgo energy to help you initiate the process, so there are no more excuses. It doesn't have to be an all-out effort, but you do need to make a physical effort to achieve your desires or recognize that it may be time to let them go. Releasing goals that are no longer in alignment with who you are is a practical and heroic achievement, so if that is what you need to do, be proud of your courage. If doubts about your ability to turn your dreams into reality pop up, then use this energy to recognize how far you have come and realize that you can do anything. Green Fluorite will keep you energized and positive during the process.
The Quarters of your Grid will represent the significant transits of the month. When considering the placement of crystals 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: Sun Conjunct Jupiter - August 26th
You can make anything happen right now, so do not waste this energy! Go after what you want because success is imminent with the Sun and Jupiter in a conjunct transit. This energy will take your determination and inner strength to the next level and that is how you will get what you want for yourself. This is a truly awesome transit and you will feel nothing but complete confidence in yourself and your ability to get everything that you want. Rhodonite will enhance your efforts and help you to find the best use for this vital energy.
Top Left: Jupiter Opposite Neptune - September 17th
A Jupiter/Neptune opposition can make it challenging to find any joy in your dreams and goals. There is simply so much potential for disappointment with Neptune's evasive nature in conflict with Jupiter's expectations for grandeur. It can seem impossible for these two planets to find a common focus that will bring you any satisfaction. Fortunately Jupiter is in Virgo, which grounds it's extravagant vibe and that will enable you to see how it is possible to take your wildest fantasies and make them real. Instead of being distracted by doubts, you can use this combination of faith and sensibility along with Howlite to strengthen your belief in yourself and your abilities.
Bottom Right: Venus Direct- September 6th
Venus has been retrograde since July, giving you a chance to see what is and isn’t working with the most valuable things in your life. During the retrograde you had time to figure out how to capitalize on what is good and fix what is not right for you. Now Venus is direct and it is time to enact those changes that you have been considering. Remember that change is never easy, so you will need to trust your instincts and have courage when the time to act arrives. Have faith in yourself because you know what it takes to bring more value into your life and you have what it takes to make that happen for yourself! White Aventurine will help you to recognize what you need to do to be fulfilled...and then do it!
Bottom Left: Mercury Retrograde - September 17th
Mercury goes retrograde for the last time in 2015 in the sign of Libra. This is a period of contemplation rather than action and you want to use it constructively. Libra has the ability to successfully join opposing forces and make them stronger as they focus on a common goal. Where is there struggle in your life that you could direct this energy towards finding a resolution? When Mercury is retrograde it is best to begin your journey within, so make this your time to heal any damage that you are doing to yourself. Sugilite will enable you to recognize and resolve your inner conflicts.
Something to note: Saturn is finally ending its tour through Scorpio for good and will head into Sagittarius until 2018. This brings us a powerful period for growth in all areas of your life. Be sure to relax and release anything that is preventing you from being open to taking advantage of new opportunities. Try adding a Labradorite to your grid to realize the power of positive transformation.
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. Moss Agate will represent August 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. Other crystals that work with Virgo energy include Garnet, Peridot, Sapphire, Watermelon Tourmaline, Green Aventurine, Jasper, Charoite, & Petrified Wood.
