Cleansing Crystals with Sunlight and Moonlight

The easiest of the cleansing techniques involves using your  stone in a windowsill where the direct sunlight or moonlight will hit it. The number of days or nights you’ll have it will depend on how much negative energy has collected in the stone. Set the stone on a mirror to enhance the effect. Be careful not to handle that mirror so that is flashed the reflection of the light into the eyes, as it can damage eyesight,. Make sure that the reflection doesn’t focus on a flammable surface for an extended time, either.

Cleansing Crystals with Running Water

If you’re fortunate enough to live near a stream, tie your stone in a pieces of cheesecloth or old pantyhose and with a piece of string fasten it to a branch or stone on the bank. Let the fabric wrapped stone rest in the water for at least twenty-four house. If you’re in an urban environment, you can set the stone in a strainer or colander and put it in your sink. Turn the cold water tap on and leave it three for a while. However, this method wastes a lot of water, so I don’t use it. Instead, I pour bottled spring water in a dish, and set the stones in it. Water absorbs energy whether it’s running or not, the movement simply add more energy to the process and gets it done faster.

Water is an excellent purifier. If you add a pinch of salt to it, it becomes even more powerful. Again, however, if there’s any metal attached to the stone, skip the salt and use pure water. Don’t subscribe earth for that pinch of salt in the technique, or you’ll end up having to rinse off the stone under the tap anyway.

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for June 22 is 57:Gentle Penetration

57: Gentle Penetration

Hexagram 57

General Meaning: The general situation here points to subtle penetration. Reeds bend softly in the wind, symbolizing flexibility and endurance, symbolizing quiet, relaxed effectiveness in action. A gentle influence is at work, but just as the wind is ceaseless in its efforts, so too small forces can persist to produce lasting results.

Gentle penetration bodes well for new relationships of all kinds. Just as a summer breeze slowly penetrates the woods to cool the forest, the brilliant ideas of gifted leaders or the sincere feelings of warm-hearted lovers slowly penetrate the minds and hearts of others. In personal relationships, a gentle beginning is often linked to a long-lasting union.

When employing a force that is weak but persistent, careful aim is necessary, for only when a small force continually moves in the same direction can it have much effect. In human affairs, this kind of influence comes more through strength of character than by direct confrontation or seduction. It’s important to have, and stick to, clearly defined goals. Maintaining a strong vision and following a steady course of least resistance often brings good fortune.

Today’s Tarot Card for June 22 is The Hanged Man

The Hanged Man

This Tarot Deck: Old English

General Meaning: Traditionally, the card known as the Hanged Man usually indicates a lack of ability to help oneself through independent action. This energy is arrested and awaiting judgment. With this card, there is no avenue for the will to regain control until the situation has passed.

This represents a good time to be philosophical, to study and meditate upon the position you find yourself in, and form resolutions for the moment you become free again. Only those who possess wisdom, patience and optimism will be able to see through limitations, including possible humiliation, to grasp the inspiring lesson one can gain from such an experience.

Your Daily Horoscopes for June 22

The imaginative Pisces Moon tempts us to choose fantasy over reality. Meanwhile two aspects highlight Pisces’ key planet Neptune, further spiritualizing and mystifying our lives: Assertive Mars squares Neptune, provoking us to act foolishly. While we can inadvertently mislead others or confuse ourselves, the Sun’s harmonious trine to Neptune indicates that our best ideas are still intuitive. Ultimately, our dreams can help us grow in many ways.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Saying something with authority doesn’t make it true, but pushy Mars’ square with deceptive Neptune tempts you to try this ploy as a strategy today. You may actually believe that you can talk someone into seeing the world through your eyes. But overpowering others by insisting you’re right only makes you sound foolish, because your rationalizations are more transparent than you realize. There’s no need to pretend that you’re in control when you’re not. Those who know you love you simply for being yourself.

 

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Your future is looking bright today, but you may not be heading in the right direction to actually make your dreams come true. It’s not that your goals are unrealistic; it’s just that you can underestimate the resources necessary to reach your destination. Thankfully, if you let your imagination wander, you can see possibilities that others miss. Just remember to draw a line to separate fact from fancy or you could be rudely surprised by the outcome.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You may be happy that your brightest dreams are ripe for picking, but don’t let your confidence run away with the show while confusing Neptune is in your 10th House of Status. You might believe that you can be successful without working harder, but this illusion will dissipate as circumstances change. If an idealistic fantasy fades as you get closer to it, it’s best to let it go and move on to something else.

 

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

It may seem as if you have all the words necessary to describe your hopeful feelings today, yet you still cannot initiate a conversation about your dreams of the future. Don’t waste energy being self-critical now, for you are wise to keep your vision to yourself until you have a good reason to share it. It’s not useful to reveal your plan prematurely or you might create an awkward moment. Be patient and remain quiet just a little bit longer.

 

 

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

It feels as if you’re in an idyllic social situation today and that everyone seems to support your decisions. You’re not even thinking about what you should do next; you’re in the flow and everything is just happening naturally. However, your desire for a deeper connection doesn’t play well with your current energy, which may be more scattered now. You can maintain the status quo by temporarily keeping your emotions to yourself.

 

 

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

It’s challenging to relax today because you’re afraid of what may happen if you don’t resist the prevailing emotional currents. You would prefer to be rational and in control one hundred percent of the time, but unfortunately you are not. Therefore, your most logical strategy is to avoid getting hooked by your desires. However, attempts to deny your needs give power to whatever you fear most. Escape your regular routine; lead with your imagination and not your analytical thoughts.

 

 

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Starting your job early in the day sounds like an intelligent idea, but nothing seems to go as planned. Your positive attitude is the most important deciding factor now in whether you can put your schedule back on track or if it will completely derail. Don’t become too rigid now if you run into an obstacle; being flexible will actually enable you to regain control later.

 

 

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may be quite eager to take the easy way out today. Typically, you stick to your principles, even if your idealistic approach complicates your life. But you have a long-term plan now and you’re not willing to jeopardize it over any one particular issue. Although choosing your battles wisely is always a smart strategy, compromising your values can create even more problems down the road.

 

 

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your imagination is extremely vivid today, encouraging you to mix up your daydreams with your reality. You may actually believe that you can get more done than is possible because everything happens so smoothly in your mind. Unfortunately, each task takes more time than you think. You could end up in trouble if you race through a chore, believing you can make up for lost time. Instead, promise less and deliver more.

 

 

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may fool your workmates today by pretending to be busier than you actually are. If you want to be recognized for your contribution to a project, don’t try so hard to make yourself look good. If you take your little song and dance too far, you might inadvertently overstep your bounds. You are better off by just working hard and then letting the chips fall where they may.

 

 

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You are extra creative today as Mars, now in your 5th House of Self-Expression, is agitated by imaginative Neptune. However, your production can be delayed or even blocked by your lack of a concrete plan. Nevertheless, you could feel as if you’re wasting time managing the unexpected interruptions, but it’s wise to just handle them as they occur. Oddly enough, the distractions might inspire you to even greater heights.

 

 

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

A personal issue — domestic or romantic — may rattle your nerves today, yet you don’t quite know how to settle yourself down. It’s all too easy for you to shut out your problems for a while by withdrawing into your imagination. But escaping into Fantasyland works best for only brief moments of time, prior to returning to the real world issues. Working on tangible solutions is productive, though tensions may not ease until tomorrow.
