Preparing crystal or gem elixirs

Preparing crystal or gem elixirs

Elixirs are traditionally water that contains the essence of the energies of the healing substance (the crystals) which is placed within them. Crystal or gem elixirs are easy to make if you have the crystals ready at hand. Gem elixirs are one of the best ways to multiply the healing energies of water manifold, by empowering it with thought using the crystals as the tools.

Water (H2O) is the basic building block of life, and has been found by an eminent Japanese scientist, Dr Masaru Emoto, to be one of the easiest elements that can be manipulated through thought and intent. Dr Emoto has shown that water crystals can change their basic crystalline shape or form altogether, just by focusing a thought on it. Actually, this principle also applies to our entire universe and all matter in it. It is easily demonstrable in water only because water is not solid matter.

In much the same way, we can impart thought energies to water via programmed crystals which facilitates the transfer of the energies from the crystal into the water. The reason why you are urged to program your crystal is because without programming, the energies from the crystal are not directed, and the elixir just ends up as a general tonic (although that is also beneficial for health when drunk). But when you program a crystal, say for healing a specific illness, and soak it in water to make an elixir, the elixir’s effect becomes a lot more enhanced.

Studies done on elixir water have shown that elixir water tastes “sweeter” and is more “alive” than normal tap water. Fruit juice and wine also taste better if “energized” with gems and crystals.

PROGRAMMING YOUR CRYSTALS

PROGRAMMING YOUR CRYSTALS

All quartz crystals and gemstones will respond to the ‘intent’ of  your own
personal will; whether in word or in thought.

By simply wishing – or visualizing – the crystalline energy to be used in a
particular way – it will be! It really is that simple…….

Quartz crystals are usually ‘programmed’ for the following purposes:-

* a) Meditation
* b) Healing
* c) Absent Healing
* d) Manifesting

a) Meditation

Throughout the world – every day of the week, every minute of every day –
countless thousands of people practice their own form of  meditation. Each
person finds solace and comfort in their own particular way…..

By holding a quartz crystal or an amethyst in your hand whilst participating in
whichever type of meditation is appropriate to your own individual needs, you
will enhance and enrich the spiritual depths of your own meditative experience.

The quartz crystal or amethyst enables you to undertake a new and wondrous
journey within the inner recesses of  your soul. Unknown pathways, hitherto
previously uncharted, will open up in front of you.

A new dimension of self-expression will rise to the surface and expand your
inner consciousness and awareness.

The amethyst, of course, is well known for being able to relieve mental and
physical stress and tension. It is the stone containing inner peace and
tranquillity; the stone of sublime relaxation.

Every member of your meditation circle or group should have their very own piece
of  quartz crystal or amethyst to hold throughout the meditation session. As
time passes, perhaps very slowly at first, each person will gradually become
aware that their breathing has become far deeper and far more rhythmical and
they have now entered a completely new world of inner peace and harmony.

All meditation rooms would greatly benefit from having large quartz crystals
placed  at all four corners of the room with their single-terminated points
directed towards the center of the room. The crystals should be placed either on
the floor or affixed to the corners of  the ceiling.

Each of  the four quartz crystals in the meditation room should be ‘programmed’
to project gentle, loving, relaxing, crystalline energy towards all those
present within the Meditation group. The quartz crystals will then generate a
field of  positive  crystalline energy surrounding everyone in the room.

In addition to every member of the meditation group holding their own individual
amethyst or quartz crystal, a large amethyst or quartz crystal cluster may be
placed in the middle of the group. This large cluster should then be
‘programmed’  to  release beautiful cosmic crystalline energies into every
corner of the room.

It is very important that one member of the meditation group should be nominated
to look after the group’s amethyst or quartz crystal cluster – and to make
absolutely  certain that it is properly ‘cleansed’, ‘dedicated’ and
‘programmed’.

Whilst  holding your crystal or amethyst when meditating with music you will
often discover that some quite amazing effects are being  produced. On some
occasions you might even be able to ‘see’ the music in terms  of color and
shape.  Even should you be just listening to a piece of music whilst holding
your stone – and not even consciously trying to  meditate -you will find the
depth of experience greatly enriched by the  presence of your crystal or
amethyst.

Whenever  harmonious  music  is being played in  the  presence  of  your crystal
or amethyst, the mood and thoughts of the composer become deeply embedded within
the very heart of the crystal and if you ‘listen’ to the crystal afterwards,
with your inner ear, you will often be able to pick up the esoteric meaning of
the music itself.

You may use your crystal or amethyst in so very many ways when meditating. Do
not be afraid to experiment and try new methods.  Listen to what your crystal is
saying and try to respond accordingly. You will find the results truly amazing
and very worth while.

b) Healing

Once you have chosen your quartz crystal – and ‘cleansed’ and ‘dedicated’  it  –
you  are ready to commence using it for healing purposes.

It is very important to note, however, that for best results your quartz crystal
should only be used for either healing or meditation. Not for both! The
‘vibrations’ and ‘energies’ used in healing and meditation are very different
and to use the same quartz crystal for both occasions would result in the
dissipation of the crystal’s unique energies. Quartz crystals are, in all
reality, only ‘tools’.  By themselves they can only be described as passive; but
when they become activated by the human mind they can become extremely powerful
indeed……..

Each and every one of us, as beings of the human species, possess an inherent
healing energy. In the majority of people, of  course, this healing ability lies
totally dormant and inactive.

But when we possess the knowledge to enable us to ‘channel’ our own healing
energy through our quartz crystal friends we are then able to amplify this
healing  power and the resultant energy that we have ourselves created  – ours,
that is, in conjunction with that of  our crystal – may be used for many
positive healing purposes.

Even though you may not wish to become a qualified crystal healing therapist
yourself  there are still plenty of opportunities for you to use your quartz
crystal to heal your family and friends.

When my youngest child, Cameron, was only a few months old, I returned home
one day after having given a crystal healing workshop to discover that he was
very ill. My wife, Judith, had taken him to our local doctor who had told her
that if he did not improve within the next couple of days he would have to go
into the hospital.

Obviously, I had to do something! When Cameron was ready for bed that evening I
cradled him in my arms and placed an electro-crystal therapy ‘wand’ on his
stomach.  I also held my personal healing quartz crystal and directed its
healing energy to completely envelop Cameron’s body. I gave him crystal healing
for only thirty minutes, at the end of  which, my little Cameron was fast
asleep.

The next morning, he was almost completely cured! And so there was no need
for Judith to take him back to the doctor or for him to go into hospital.

When treating a patient the following guide-lines may prove helpful:-

At the beginning of the healing session you should hold your quartz crystal in
whichever hand feels ‘right’ to you; and calmly attune yourself to the inner
energies of your quartz crystal. You will probably experience energies
‘throbbing’ within your hand.

Now direct the single-terminated end of your healing quartz crystal towards your
patient and gently move the crystal around the perimeter of their whole body in
a clockwise direction. As you do this, at the same time visualize a blue-white
crystalline light emanating from the apex of the patient’s body and flowing
towards the patient and surrounding him. Do this several times. This will help
to strengthen the electro-magnetic field of  energy around the physical body of
the patient.

The single-terminated end of the quartz crystal should then be directed towards
that part of the patient’s body which you believe or ‘sense’  to be most in need
of healing.

Visualize, as strongly as possible, a lovely blue-white light emanating from the
apex of your crystal once again and direct this light, like a laser beam, to
that part of the patient’s body where you feel that the healing is most needed.

This lovely blue-white becomes stronger and stronger, brighter and brighter, and
the energy between the crystal and your patient slowly begins to intensify.

The crystal healing session itself may, in theory at any rate, last any length
of time,  but intuitively you will become aware when the time is right to bring
the session to an end.

To finish the crystal healing treatment session you should visualize the blue-
white light gently flowing back into your quartz crystal. Once more you should
direct and project the healing energies around the  perimeter of your patient’s
body in a clockwise direction. Then allow your patient to relax for a few
minutes……

Many of my own patients regularly fall fast asleep so it is very important that
you bring them back to the present in as relaxed manner as possible.

Whenever practical it is best for your patient not to have to drive a car for
some time after the crystal healing session as the patient often becomes so very
‘de-stressed’ and almost ‘spaced out’ that it can  take some considerable time
to re-orient themselves!

Whilst I quite often do discuss a patient’s medical history with them before
offering any form of treatment, from my own personal experience I have found
that it is not always absolutely necessary to know, in advance, what is
medically wrong with my patient.

One lady whom I visited on one occasion whilst I was in London was keen for me
to demonstrate some of my crystal healing techniques upon her!  I duly obliged
by first directing some crystalline healing energy  towards her third eye
chakra.

Immediately she told me that she had felt the crystal healing energy ‘hit’ her
third eye and then travel downwards through her body and into her stomach.
Apparently, so  it transpired, she had had a serious operation on her stomach a
couple of weeks previously (which I had no way of knowing!) and, naturally, that
was the part of her body which most needed the crystal healing energies.

My own personal believe is that all dis-ease occurs purely as a result of an
imbalance of our normal bodily ‘vibrations’.  Therefore, whatever health
condition from which we may suffer, however serious or however mild, whether it
be cancer, multiple sclerosis, tumors or simply a dose of  influenza or the
common cold,  the basic treatment remains much the same.

All that is really necessary is for the disharmonious or imbalanced ‘vibrations’
to be re-harmonized, re-energized and re-balanced. This may, at first sight,
appear to be an over-simplification but years of experience has shown me that
all too often we can over-complicate our diagnoses.

The main difference between allopathic medicine and natural medicine is that
allopathic medicine treats symptoms whilst natural medicine concentrates upon
finding the root cause of the health problem.

Simply put – if we can discover the originating cause or ‘imbalance’  of any
health  condition or dis-ease then by using our crystal healing techniques to
rebalance all the ‘vibrations’ which are out of alignment, we must be able to
effect a cure or, at the  very least, a gradual improvement in the patient’s
overall health!

You may also, of course use your quartz crystal for self  –  healing purposes.
All that you have to do is to direct the single-terminated end of  your crystal
towards the appropriate part of your own body and, as you did before when
treating your patient, visualize a lovely blue-white light radiating from the
apex of your crystal,  like a laser beam, into your own body.

Crystal Healing is one of the most powerful – and successful –  methods of
re-balancing,  re-energizing  and re-harmonizing every part of  the physical and
mental bodies of either yourself or of your patient.

c) Absent – or Distant – Healing

Quartz crystals are often used very successfully in all forms of  absent –  or
distant – healing. Whether you are three miles, three hundred miles, three
thousand miles or thirteen thousand miles away from your patient, crystal
healing can prove most effective.

For best results it is recommended that the quartz crystals which you use for
absent healing purposes are used solely for absent healing and for no other
purpose.

It is only really necessary to have the name of the person who wishes to receive
absent healing. Absent Healing, using the unique power of quartz crystals, can
work solely on the name ‘vibration’ alone.

All you have to do is to visualize the crystalline energy pulsating within your
absent healing quartz crystal being projected towards your patient, wherever he
or she may live. Your quartz crystal will then do the rest!

If, however, you should have in your possession an actual photograph of your
patient – or, if you have already met the person and therefore know what they
look  like – just hold your crystal in your hands and visualize, as strongly as
possible, the crystalline energy totally surrounding the patient.

In addition it is very helpful after the absent healing session has been
completed if you were to place your absent healing quartz crystal on a
photograph of  your  patient;  this assists the amplification of  the
crystalline energy which is being projected by the crystal towards your patient.

In my own personal healing center I use a Master absent healing quartz crystal
which I use for all my absent healing treatments. Whenever I am asked for absent
healing I inscribe the patient’s name and relevant details in my absent healing
book and I then place my Master absent healing quartz crystal on top of this
book with the  ‘program’  that every name entered in the book will receive
healing from the crystalline energies; each according to his or her needs.

I ask that everyone tries to link up with my Master absent healing quartz
crystal at 10pm every evening. Those of you reading these words and who may, for
whatever healing purpose, need my crystal healing, prayers, powers and energies,
please try to sit quietly by yourself at the hour of  10pm each evening, relax
and visualize the  crystalline energies flowing into your crown chakra.  Think
of me and you will receive crystal healing energy from the divine crystalline
source.
d) Manifesting

Very simply, manifesting is a method of  ‘programming’  your quartz crystal to
help your subconscious mind to create something tangible in your life that you
may need.  Notice that I use the word need not want. There is a very big
difference!

Before you proceed with any form of  manifesting it is extremely important that
you examine your conscience and decide exactly what it is you wish to achieve.
Decide,  in as much precise detail as possible, whatever it is you need to
acquire.

In order to avoid dissipating the crystalline energies, as already stated
previously, it is most essential that you only use your chosen crystal for
manifesting purposes only!

Let me repeat once again. Need, not want, should be your main criteria! For
example, we might all say that we want to win a first dividend on the football
pools of  $2,000,000.  But that is most definitely a want  – not a need!

So be warned……..

Now, make yourself  comfortable in an easy chair and let us  begin to start
manifesting your innermost needs.

First, hold your quartz crystal in front of you, with both hands. Stare at it
intently and visualize yourself entering into the crystal through a door cut
into the crystal.

Once through this door you will find yourself in a long narrow hall. At the end
of  this hall is a green door inscribed with the words ‘MANIFESTING ROOM’
written upon it.

Open the door of this ‘Manifesting Room’ and step inside and look around.  The
walls are solid gold; the floor is green; the ceiling is studded with millions
of precious gemstones, sparkling with all the colors of the rainbow.  The room
is filled with a warm, rich feeling of  prosperity.

Bring into your mind a complete and exact image of whatever it is you wish to
manifest. Visualize as much detail as possible; concentrate as hard as you
possibly can and imagine that you actually possess whatever it is you are
manifesting. You are extremely happy and relaxed, secure in the knowledge that
your need has been met.

Take your time; 5, 10 or even 15 minutes, it doesn’t matter. Then, when you have
finished, slowly walk back out of the manifesting room, closing the door firmly
shut behind you.

Walk back along the hall and step outside of the crystal. Take a large deep
breath,  relax your body and when you feel comfortable, open your eyes.

Do your manifesting at least twice per day (morning and evening) until your
need has been fulfilled.

THE HEALING PROPERTIES OF GEMSTONES

THE HEALING PROPERTIES OF GEMSTONES

Although, quite obviously, no guarantee of any permanent cure or even
improvement can ever be given, there have been many occasions when the stones
referred to in this text file have considerably helped to bring about a positive
improvement in many different diseases and health conditions.

Hundreds of people who have successfully received healing from their gemstones – have found that the  most effective way to use any gemstone for healing purposes is to wear it as close to the skin as possible.

Some ladies seem to ‘hide’ their gemstones within the deep inner recesses of
their bras but the vast majority of people prefer to wear their chosen gemstone
around their neck on a silver or gold plated chain.

In addition to the healing energies of the gemstone being able to penetrate the
subtle body more easily, the gemstone pendant is a beautiful piece of jewelry –
and is always aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

Remember – a stone of beauty is a joy forever!

Gemstones may, if  so desired, be held in the hand whilst you are watching
television during the evening, or whilst you are reading a favorite book or
magazine.

You may also place your gemstone under your pillow at night whilst you are
asleep;  thus allowing the energies of the stone to gently penetrate your subtle
body throughout the course of the night.

The healing – and therapeutic – power of crystals and gemstones has even reached
boardroom level!

In recent natural health exhibitions, for example, I have sold some fairly large
amethyst clusters to Managing Directors, Sales Directors etc. who have acquired
these big clusters to place on their office desks – or within their boardroom!

Amethyst or quartz crystal clusters are now the ‘in’ executive toy.

Certain stones can help you to develop your spiritual abilities and gifts. Use
an amethyst for developing your intuitive awareness; a lapis lazuli for
acquiring  wisdom and truth; a moonstone for obtaining humanitarian love and
sensitivity.

Use your gemstones wisely in the pursuit of all your ambitions and needs.

Be aware, however, that your gemstones can never become miracle workers. They
need your loving care and attention, your mental attunement with their unique
properties and energies, before they are able to truly help you!

Cleansing Negative Energies From Your Gems, Crystals, Jewelry and Pendulums

Cleansing Negative Energies From Your Gems, Crystals, Jewelry and Pendulums

By Mary Kurus

Why Do Gems, Crystals, Jewelry and Pendulums Need Cleansing and Energizing:

Gems and crystals come from within Mother earth. They are alive and intelligent, having the intelligence of nature within every cell of their beings. They are mined either by hand, machine, but grow in the earth and are removed from the earth to be used for many different purposes.

When gems, crystals, or rocks of any type are in the earth, they are exposed to earth energies including magnetic energy fields and electric energy fields. These energies come in a variety of ways including the inner workings of our planet, energy grids surrounding our planet, and from energies from the broader Universe, of which our planet Earth is a very active member.

For example, when lightening strikes the earth, it sends enormous amounts of energy into the earth, and the gems, crystals and rocks within it. Think of the molten lava pouring out of active volcanoes and the energy the heat and minerals within it and how it affects the energy of things within its range of influence.

All planets, including the Sun, the Moon, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, Pluto, Saturn, and all other planets, stars, and energies in the broadest Universe influence the energy of gems and crystals.

It’s important to remember that gems and crystals are alive. To remain alive and energized once removed from within Mother Earth, gems, crystals, and objects made from elements taken from the earth, need to be cleansed and energized on a regular basis.

Gems, Crystals, Jewelry and Pendulums Attract and Absorb Energy:

Your gems, crystals, jewelry, pendulums, basically anything around you, or on you, can attract positive and negative energy and hold that energy unless the object is cleansed. I remember many years ago visiting an energy worker who had a large clear crystal cluster in the room where she worked. She laughed and said this crystal automatically cleansed the aura of everyone who came into that room. But it was important for her to cleanse that crystal or it would slowly loose its cleansing power.

The jewelry you wear, the pendulum you hold in your hand, absorbs the energies you have within you as well as the negative energies around you. Therefore these objects need to be cleansed very regularly.

Suggested Methods for Cleansing Crystals, Gems, Jewelry, and Pendulums:

The following are a few suggested methods for cleansing crystals, gems, pendulums and jewelry. These methods can also be used to cleanse other objects. I have my favorites and try to keep my gems and crystals exposed to the sun and moon on an ongoing basis as well as using Black Obsidian Concentrate.

  1. The Sun and Moon: Place your gems, crystals, pendulums, jewelry, all types of objects, in a place where they will be fully exposed to the energizing rays of the sun and moon. Even if the day is cloudy or you cannot see the moon, their rays will energize the stones as long as they are directly exposed to these elements of nature. They will normally be cleansed within 24 hours of exposure.

    However, stones such as black tourmaline which are being used to deflect negative energies or help release negative energies in your physical and energetic bodies, may require up to 48 hours to become fully cleansed and regenerated.

    Stones such as aquamarine and amethyst will fade in the sun so you will have to use another method for cleansing and regenerating these gemstones.

  1. The Earth: Place your gems, crystals, jewelry, whatever, in the earth, either directly into the earth or you can place the gems and crystals into a cloth covering, preferably a natural fabric such as cotton or wool or silk. Leave the gem or crystal buried for at least 24 hours to ensure that they become fully re-energized. If possible, find a spot where the soil is not being spread with chemicals through fertilizers or pesticides. This cleanses all negative energies and re-energizes the stones.

  1. Choming Black Obsidian Spray Concentrate: For a quick and guaranteed method of cleansing your gems, crystals, pendulums, or jewelry, I make a Black Obsidian Concentrate. This is a concentrate that you mix with water into a spray bottle. Spraying your gems, crystals, pendulums and jewelry with this spray will break down and eliminate negative energies in and around them. The energetic vibration of the Black Obsidian will remain on a gem or crystal for about eight hours, after which it just fades away. For more information about ordering Black Obsidian Spray Concentrate please visit my website at www.mkprojects.com.

  1. Smudging With White Sage: Take some white sage and begin to burn it until a good strong smoke is coming from your sage. Hold the crystal, gem, pendulum, or piece of jewelry in this smoke for at least one minute and preferably three or four minutes. This clears all negative energies that have become attached to this stone but does not energize the gem or crystal. To re-energize the stone, place it in a window so it can be exposed to the rays of the sun and moon. Remember, they re-energize even when it’s cloudy.

    White Sage is the only herb that I use to cleanse. Others may recommend other herbs but I find that White Sage guarantees that the cleansing will be deep and complete.

  1. Cleansing By Using Your Intention:For those who are practiced in using intent to make energetic changes, place the crystals or gems in front of you, focus your mental energies upon these stones, and ask the powers of the Universe to cleanse them of all negative energies and to re-energize your stones for their maximum potential. This method however requires much concentration and focus and you need to practice for some time to ensure whatever you are trying to clear is actually cleared. And please remember to thank the Universe for doing this beautiful work for you.

  1. Using Another Crystal: You can place the gems, crystals, jewelry, pendulums etc. you would like to cleanse on another crystal, preferably a large, and I mean large, quartz crystal cluster. This will clear negative energies and will re-energize your crystals. However, you must cleanse and re-energize the large quartz crystal cluster regularly to ensure it retains its cleansing and re-energizing powers. Some people believe that negative energies can be cleansed off pieces of jewelry by placing this jewelry on an amethyst stone. I find that this approach has very limited results, depending on the amount of negative energy on the jewelry and the energy of the amethyst.

  1. Running Water: If you live where you have access to good clear well water that is guaranteed to be free of chemicals, or running water from a creek or river that you know is not polluted, place your crystals and gems in a small container, and let the water run over them, preferably for at least two hours. This will cleanse and re-energize your gems and crystals. Please do not use tap water, since it is full of chemicals. Be careful though because certain stones will actually dissolve in water, e.g. Red Selenite.

  1. Salt Water: Some people suggest using salt water but I personally find this method to be a harsh and abrasive method and never would cleanse my gems, crystals, pendulums or jewelry in such a severe solution. Remember that your gems, crystals, metals, and even synthetic materials are alive and have an inherent intelligence. You need to treat them with tender and loving kindness. How would you like to be washed in salt water? Never do to a crystal or gem what you would not like done to yourself.

Whatever methods you choose, treat your gems and crystals with tender and loving kindness. These stones can do so much to heal at all levels including the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual levels. They are magical gifts from the Universe and we need to treat them with respect and gratitude. If you no longer want to keep a crystal or gem, take it outside and bury it so it may return to Mother Earth, from whence it came.

I use gems and crystals for making certain Choming Essences. In making these essences I have found the spirit world that is part of these stones. Each gem or crystal has its own personality. Thank your gems and crystals for being here to work with us in our healing journeys. And keep them clean of negative energies and vibrantly alive so they can do want they want to do, in love and service.

Do These Recommended Methods Cleanse and Re-Energize Everything:

Many antiques are filled with negative energies and require specialized cleansing to release these energies. During a trip to Nepal, I purchased five wooden masks in Katmandu. These masks were authentic and had been used in hundreds of ceremonies in a temple for about 175 years. There were so many different energies in these masks and it took some time and many different types of clearings before I was able to release all negative energies.

In the past year I was asked by someone moving into a new apartment to check for negative energies and to cleanse whatever required cleansing prior to him moving there. It was relatively simple to cleanse all areas except for a section about six feet long and about 3 feet wide. It took many hours and different types of processes to eliminate these energies. I found out that the previous tenant had been an alcoholic, and a very angry man. He had spent many angry hours on the sofa that rested on that space. His anger and violence had imbedded that specific space with deep negative energies.

I provide these examples so you will understand that some negative energies are very difficult to eliminate and require the effort of someone experienced in releasing and cleansing these negative energies.

How to Choose a Crystal

How to Choose a Crystal
As we are becoming more and more aware of the healing effects of crystals and gemstones on our health, it is only natural to look for information on how to use them.

In simple, easy to understand terms, the reason why crystals and gemstones make wonderful healing tools is because of what science calls its piezoelectric effects. You can see this effect in modern Quartz watches. Crystals and stones respond to the electricity that is coursing through our body, if the energy is unbalanced, the constant electrical vibrations of the stones will help to harmonize, balance, and regulate the flow of these energies.

Now that we know how crystals work to aid in our healing process, let’s learn how to choose one.
There are many methods of selecting your crystals and gemstones, these are just a few.

The first method is to simply close your eyes and quietly meditate for a few moments. When you are ready, open your eyes very quickly and pick up the first stone to which your eyes become naturally drawn.

The next method is to run your left hand, your receiving hand, over all of the stones available for purchase. (You use your left hand because the left side of the body brings energy/information in more strongly in most people.) You will soon discover that one of the stones will make the palm of your hand tingle or get warm, this is your stone!

You may also intuitively ‘know’ which stone you should choose and which is right for you. You might feel as if the stone is jumping up and down and shouting “choose me, choose me!!” You may also sense or even ‘see’ white light radiating from the stone drawing you in like a magnet!

If you are a competent dowser then you should be able to choose the appropriate stone with your own individual techniques.

Sometimes you even feel as if the stone is choosing you! They come to you with a particular purpose and have a special reason for wanting you to work with them. Just accept this when it happens and count
it as a blessing🙂

Unfortunately many of us do not have access to retail shops that carry a good line of healing stones and crystals. But in today’s world we have the internet and mail order catalogs that offer just about any stone you could possibly need. It is very easy to choose stones over the internet if pictures are provided on the web site. Just look through the photos of the stones and let your intuition guide you into choosing which stones are best for you. It is really that easy!
Once you have chosen your new ‘stone fr

CHOOSING YOUR CRYSTALS

CHOOSING YOUR CRYSTALS

All crystals and gemstones ‘vibrate’ on their own individual frequency. In that
respect they are similar to us human beings.

We have all had the experience of meeting a perfect stranger for the very first
time and either liking that person immediately or feeling an antipathy towards
them – without in any way being able to explain our feelings or emotions.

To fall in perfect love is a beautiful and wondrous experience – the coming
together of two minds, two spirits and two physical bodies, both ‘vibrating’ on
the same beautiful frequency!

Crystals and gemstones should be chosen in exactly the same way.  It is so very
important that the stones which we choose and use should ‘vibrate’ on a
frequency as close as possible to our own.

Individual methods of choosing crystals and gemstones vary from person to person
but normally include:-

* 1) Close your eyes and quietly meditate for a few moments. Then open your eyes
very quickly and pick up the very first stone to which your  eye becomes
naturally drawn.

* 2)  Run your hand (either your left or right hand depending upon which you
prefer to use) over all the stones available for selection. You will soon
discover that one stone will ‘stick’ to your hand as if it is ‘tacky’ or
surrounded with glue. This is your stone.

* 3)  Intuitively you will instinctively ‘know’ which stone you should choose
and which is ‘right’ for you! You might feel as if the stone is jumping up and
down shouting, “Me! Me! Me! Choose Me!”

Or you might sense or even ‘see’ a strong crystalline white light radiating from
the stone and attracting you like a magnet.

* 4) Should you happen to be a competent dowser then you should be able to
select  the most appropriate stone by using your own individual  dowsing
techniques …………

And sometimes you truly feel as if your stones are actually choosing you!

This has often happened to me. All my most powerful and energized quartz
crystals have all arrived on my doorstep (so to speak) for a particular purpose
and have a  special reason for wanting me to work with them. Normally they have
been either absolutely free or have cost me very little money.

Should you wish to choose a quartz crystal or a gemstone for one of your friends
who,  perhaps, lives some distance away from you, follow exactly the same
principles as if you were choosing a personal stone for yourself  but on this
occasion visualize, as strongly as possible, a picture of your friend within
your mind’s eye.  With a little practice you will soon discover that it is very
easy to select just the  right quartz crystal or gemstone for any of your
friends who are unable to choose their stones in person for themselves.

Although more and more retail outlets are now selling crystals and gemstones
there  are still many towns and cities here in the United Kingdom where it is
still extremely difficult to purchase your own crystals and stones in person.

For many people, the only real opportunity they have to select a crystal or
gemstone  personally is to attend one of the regular  workshops and seminars
that I run under the auspices of ‘Crystal 2000’. At all these workshops and
seminars there are  always a large selection of crystals, gemstones and books
available for purchase.

However, there are always a great many people, living in all parts of the United
Kingdom who, for one reason or another, are unable to participate in  any of
these workshops and seminars and who rely on my personal intuition to select the
most appropriate crystal or gemstone on their behalf. In such cases I find that
I am either able to work on their name ‘vibration’  alone or on the ‘vibrations’
emanating from their original letter. From all the feedback which I receive it
would certainly appear that this method works extremely well in most instances.

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Jan. 10th is The Sun

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

The Sun



Only The Universe card of the Crowley Tarot can match the blessings that come with The Sun. While it certainly doesn’t promise a life’s path without some bumps in the road, The Sun indicates all will be well. The Sun is our Cosmic Nurturer. Life flourishes under its radiant beams. It provides the illumination to find Truths and lights one’s path so they do not get lost. To stand in the rays of The Sun is to shine. To absorb its energy promotes growth, exceptional physical and mental health, and good fortune. The Sun is empowering, elevating and fills those who bask in it with confidence and sense of self-worth.

 

Learn The Tarot – The Tower

The Tower


Because of circumstances beyond your control, you have no choice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

General Meaning

In practically all renditions of the Tower card, disaster is striking or has just struck. The demons of madness and despair are released from ancient hiding places, and nature conspires with human failings to destabilize a society. The upheaval is collective and impersonal. Let us remember these images were created for the educated nobles and clergy — reminding them that they have the most to lose if the hierarchy is toppled.

Lightning is a fitting karmic payback for the guilt of those whose fortunes come from the exploitation or abuse of others. A modern subtitle might be “revolution,” indicating that through drastic social change, oppressed people can find renewed hope of better times. The Tower experience comes like a flash of lightning to topple the hierarchy of the old order, after which everyone can have a fresh start on a more equal footing.
In the Advice Position

You are the one to serve as a catalyst for change.

The card in the Advice position suggests a course of action which will harmonize what you want with what is currently possible.

With the Tower card, think of yourself as an agent of transformation. This self-sacrificing role is likely to create stressful situations. Your vision shows you that a radical change has already been unleashed by forces much larger than mere mortals, and therefore you are no longer resisting.

Now you may be at the forefront, acknowledging and accepting the bracing presence of the future bursting in on the present. Try to mediate the harsher parts of the changes as they unfold, so the most vulnerable are the most cushioned. Acknowledge yourself, as well as the others in your life, who are offering their resources to usher in a better future.

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

Temperance



Temperance denotes balance and harmony. The forces behind Temperance are those that keep us from succumbing to temptation or over-indulgence; steer us away from developing unhealthy addictions or behaviors. The Temperate Spirit avoids extremes, spreads harmony and brings opposing sides together. They find a happy, healthy median between what they want and what they need. Temperance provides an environment in which most will thrive, and a haven where the injured may heal, reenergize. Through Temperance success and contentment are found by practicing self-restraint, and using balance to create your own “shelter from the storm.”.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, January 11th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope

This morning is good for feeling accomplished and decisive, but as the day advances, dear Aries, instincts might tell you one thing, and people say something else. You want to do more than is currently possible, and you’re getting conflicting messages from your ambitions and from what others seem to want you to do. Keep things as real as possible. Don’t be swayed by promises made now, as they may be hard to keep. Watch for errors made as a result of ignoring or glossing over details, and avoid skipping steps in your haste to accomplish something. Recognize that pushing too hard towards a goal can wear you down or overwhelm you, which is counterproductive. Aim to pace yourself, but do keep your mind open to new ideas and possibilities. In fact, we’re building towards a Full Moon, and this is a time for reaching a little further than you usually do. It’s an imaginative time!

Taurus

Taurus Horoscope

This morning is good for feeling connected to someone or excited and motivated by a personal interest or cause. As the day advances, emotions build. You can have fabulous business ideas now, but they may not yet hold a lot of weight. Don’t discard them! Instead, take note and aim to fill in the details later. Restlessness can lead to mistakes today if you’re stuck in a routine. You can be feeling some pressure and a sense that you don’t have the time or energy to accomplish your larger goals. Avoid skipping important steps so that you can reach a goal. Pacing yourself is difficult today but can be the key to success. Remind yourself that going bigger isn’t necessarily better. Becoming overwhelmed by things to do will not help you to achieve more, and right now, the desire for some freedom from restrictions and routines is strong. Fortunately, the Full Moon tomorrow brings true feelings to the surface, and it can be an excellent time for great ideas.

Gemini

Gemini

More than usual today, dear Gemini, you need happy company, but you may be swinging from a generous mood to a more serious frame of mind. While you can be very playful and affectionate, there can be some confusion as to the depth of your feelings and whether you want more or less from someone! There can be questions about commitment, whether to a person, idea, or project. Some of you could be unsure about a person’s feelings about you or the viability of a project. Jupiter has been encouraging you to take a risk with your heart or your creativity these days, but the Sun is stimulating a desire for deeper bonds and connections, and this mini struggle can come to a head now. Watch that you don’t take risks that are over the top, particularly with money, as instincts for financial matters may be out of step. A Full Moon is building and is likely to reveal buried feelings or open your eyes to something you’ve been overlooking, however, which can help you make better decisions about money.

Cancer

Cancer

The Moon is in your sign all day, dear Cancer, and emotions are in the spotlight. A Full Moon will occur in your sign tomorrow morning when feelings come to a head. This can be a very revealing and creative time for you. Today, going overboard is a potential problem. You may think you can keep the peace by pleasing everyone, but this is a taller order than you think! A Sun-Jupiter square energizes your sectors of home, family, and partnerships, and all of these things can place demands on you. Restlessness is a possibility if you feel overwhelmed with things you want to do or if you are caught up in a dilemma that leaves you wondering what your next step should be. You have a stronger need for security as well as a sense of belonging now, but it’s important to take independent steps to achieve these rather than wait for others to fill these needs. Certainly, the Full Moon will help draw out the need for extra attention to your personal needs and plans.

Leo

Leo Glyph Symbol Horoscope

This can be a time for taking stock of a recent project or endeavor, possibly something that began in September, dear Leo. You are assessing just how far you’ve come or how much you have accomplished. If you’re falling short, there may be a need to adjust expectations or to renew your motivation. There could be some moodiness if your personal “report card” isn’t up to par. Try not to move forward on a new idea right now, at least not too quickly, and avoid taking on too much in an effort to catch up or get somewhere fast. Spreading yourself out too thin will not lead to success. With a Sun-Jupiter square tonight, look for areas of your life where you’ve been overextending yourself, particularly related to your daily affairs, communications, studies, and other forms of busy work. If you’ve been putting too much pressure on yourself to do it all, it’s time to focus more on priorities, especially with a Full Moon occurring tomorrow morning in your privacy sector, encouraging you to take some down time.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol Horoscope

We are building towards a Full Moon that will occur tomorrow morning in your social sector, dear Virgo. It happens at one of the most romantic times of the year for you as Venus and Neptune come together in your partnership sector. This can be a time for discovering your feelings for someone or a heartfelt project. Some of you could be learning how someone feels about you or could receive praise for your work or creativity now. However, today there can be a tendency to go a little overboard. Whether it’s about wanting to impress someone you love or simply because you’re in a good mood and want to share today, the tendency is to go over the top. Other possibilities are spending too much or making big statements or promises. You can have a good time today, but it’s best to know your limits. Gambling is unlikely to pay off right now. If you’re investing yourself into the wrong things, moodiness can ensue. Remember that bigger isn’t always better, and look for ways to simplify.

Libra

Libra

With a Full Moon about to occur at the top of your solar chart, dear Libra, you may need to take the lead or you could be called to perform. In the meantime, there is a tendency to feel restless and to blow things out of proportion, and this should be monitored. Optimism can trip you up right now if it’s blind to practical elements. Your confidence radiates, and it could very well attract good things to you, as long as you control the tendency to go over the top. As well, some of you could experience a conflict between nurturing your high need for security and safety and your similarly big desire for personal experiences and expansion or freedom. Avoid exaggeration or dramatic displays of independence in favor of managing your expectations. Plans that haven’t panned out or moved fast enough may reveal themselves now, but the answer is not to push yourself too hard but rather to prioritize and simplify.

Scorpio

Scorpio Horoscope

The Full Moon occurring tomorrow morning can feel a little chaotic, dear Scorpio, but has its magical side as it lights up your feelings and awakens you to important insights into your life. Today, the Sun and Jupiter form a square, and you may be swinging between overoptimism and disappointment. Try not to take on too much, particularly when it comes to serving and helping others, which you have been doing more than your fair share of in recent months. Instead, take a deep breath and open your eyes to flaws in your plans that need some polishing. Consider your needs and aim to balance things out. Aim to look at the big picture and consider whether you’re headed in the right direction. Get all the facts before you jump into something or to conclusions. If you’ve become a little too short-sighted recently due to a hectic schedule, you’ll feel the need to broaden your horizons and outlook today and tomorrow, and this is very good for you now!

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Horoscope

The Sun in your solar second house these days turns your attention to the practical side of your life, dear Sagittarius, but also to creature comforts and comfortable routines. Its clash with your ruler, Jupiter, in your social sector today can point to some feeling of being torn between wanting to do something different and exciting and preferring to stay put and stick with what you already know. A friend or even a project or idea seem to promise more than can be delivered, or there can be a sense that things are not coming along quite as well or as quickly as you had anticipated. The answer to this is not to push yourself harder or to take on more endeavors, but to work on problem areas and make improvements. There is a general feeling that we can do more than we actually can today, and while there are likely good intentions involved, it’s better not to bank on promises made now. As well, tame spending and overdoing. A Full Moon will occur tomorrow morning, and there can be a sense that feelings are reaching a bursting point now! It’s a good time to awaken to your feelings about a matter.

Capricorn

Capricorn Horoscope

This morning brings wonderful energy for credibility, dear Capricorn. Your enthusiasm runs high, but as the day advances, there is a tendency to blow things out of proportion or to hitch your horse to the wrong wagon. Allow yourself to dream and think big, but try not to overdo things, as you’ll end up too exhausted when true opportunities present themselves. You may be reassessing a recent business or professional endeavor now, and it’s best to aim to make changes that get your expectations down to earth before going forward. Tonight, the Sun in your sign magnifies your ambitions through a square aspect to Jupiter at the top of your chart. The trick is to avoid investing too much of yourself or your hopes into ideas and feelings that may not be realistic. Draw upon your huge stores of common sense. Enjoy yourself and celebrate, but keep things real and avoid going over the top. The Full Moon occurs in your opposing sign tomorrow morning, and this can serve to draw out your true feelings and desires. It’s a somewhat chaotic but quite magical time!

Aquarius

Aquarius

The day begins with a pleasant sense of a mission, dear Aquarius, but as the day advances, we have a harder time feeling satisfied with the status quo. A Full Moon will occur tomorrow morning and can serve to pull up feelings that have been buried or ignored. With a rather charged atmosphere, debates can quickly turn into arguments. Be discreet today. A part of you can be very restless and hungry to experience something different, but a plan or specific direction is not yet in the offing. As well, you may be uncertain about pursuing these things, held back by guilt or tied to obligations. Plans are compelling, but part of you may be clinging to the past or finding excuses. Where you’re headed may not yet be clear, but that’s just fine — don’t push this realization or decision-making. What you should push, however, is the usual boundaries of your imagination, as this is an excellent time for coming up with unusual but workable ideas.

Pisces

PiscesThis morning is good for connecting with others or for feeling connected to an idea or cause, dear Pisces. There is a nice sense of mission. As the day advances, there is a tendency for people around you to dramatize or exaggerate, so take things with a grain of salt. There can be some pressure on you from friends or groups or difficulties balancing your intimate life and your social life. If you’ve been expecting more from a recent endeavor or even relationship, this can be a time when you question what needs to be done to either revive it or put it behind you. Any waning in enthusiasm may only be temporary, so keep this in mind before making final decisions. While thinking in big terms is useful sometimes, today’s energies point to a tendency to be immoderate or to overshoot. Avoid overcommitting, which can be the go-to tendency as a way to appease others or to put something behind you. Consider dreams and ideas that emerge now, but avoid investing too much of yourself into these things. We are building to a feel-good and possibly a romantic or exotic Full Moon, and emotions run high.

If Today is Your Birthday: January 10

peygamberimiz-gc3bcl

If Today is Your Birthday: January 10

You are exceptionally hard working, organized, intelligent, and efficient. Some of you can be accused of being workaholics, and sometimes this comes from a fear of being poor or needy. You are a friendly person and you carry yourself especially well so that others easily respect you. Others generally appreciate your straightforward approach to life, as well as your practical and sound mind. Famous people born today: Rod Stewart, Linda Lovelace, Pat Benatar, Ronnie Hawkins, George Foreman.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

You crave and seek more freedom this year, and how you deal with this issue makes all the difference as to the overriding themes of the year. If you recognize your need for changes in key areas of your life and adapt accordingly, this can be an exciting year of discovery. However, if you resist change and insist on keeping things status quo, you are bound to feel very restless, tense, and rebellious. Either way, making healthy changes should be the focus instead of change just for the sake of change. Spontaneity, not impulsiveness, is the key to success this year. Optimism is wonderful, but when it’s blind optimism, life becomes a rollercoaster ride, so aim to keep your feet on the ground. Fortunately, you have a lot of cosmic support for this.

Business benefits from a more creative approach, but you should be especially careful that you aren’t missing important details. This can be a year in which you are building faith and confidence in your personality, skills, and talents. You can experience a stronger desire to seek out meaning, wisdom, and mental stimulation in your life during this period. Others might frequently turn to you for guidance.

You might find that you become more goal-oriented this year, as superficial goals no longer satisfy you. You want your objectives to reflect what you’re really about, and you are likely to rid yourself of unsatisfying goals this year. You benefit from being more decisive than usual, and your ability to concentrate and focus helps you to achieve what you set out to do. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting. Your sexual and physical activities tend to be more intense, passionate, and focused. It’s an excellent year in which to make a lifestyle change, as your ability to concentrate on what really matters to you is enhanced.

Venus conjunct Neptune in your Solar Return chart this year is an extremely romantic influence. This could be a year in which romance enters your life or is enhanced. The only real danger with this aspect is the tendency to be starry-eyed about your romantic and social relationships. Fresh beginnings on creative levels are likely. Heightened sensitivity to, and awareness of, beauty and spirituality characterize the year ahead. You are easily influenced, seducible and seductive, and given to strong powers of imagination. You are more attuned to the world of beauty and romance, and gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy. It can certainly be a magical time on a romantic and social level, but it could also be a confusing or illusory influence as well. You should be more vigilant with money matters and watch for a tendency to glamorize your situation or relationships at times.

This can be a powerful year for friendships. You are especially concerned with being fair to one another in your relationships. You seek out balance and peace, and the platonic elements of a relationship may be emphasized now with great success. There can be a focus on sharing or blending beliefs, morals, and values; or there can be a strong focus on growing and improving through one another. This can also be a very creative, artistic time.

This can be a year in which you reassess your love relationships or friendships to determine whether they’re helping you grow or holding you back.

The year ahead is an enterprising one, particularly along creative lines. It’s also a very important period for making lifestyle changes. You have much energy to pour into your pursuits, although you can be a little moody when it comes to motivation for your projects – you need to feel inspired for the energy to flow well. Romantic and creative energy runs very high this year. Work on your ability to pace yourself, as it will lead to greater happiness and health. As well, temper enthusiasm with practicality for best results.

 

2017 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.

2018 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, January 10th

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, January 10th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope

As ambitious as you are these days, there can be many distractions preventing you from mastering all that you want to accomplish, dear Aries. Today, it may be your inner need for change that’s doing all the interfering! Watch for a tendency to challenge authority or tradition in ways that stir up trouble rather than help bring positive change. Look within for a need to make changes and answer that call, rather than simply reacting to others and circumstances. Tone down rough edges and consider ways to make changes without making so many waves. Fortunately, you become far more strategic as the day advances. You might decide to take charge of a private, past, or health matter now as you instinctively hone in on your priorities. Good energy is with you for tackling long-standing problems or work. Working anonymously or from behind the scenes can prove beneficial.

Taurus

Taurus Horoscope

While you’re seeking out new ideas and experiences these days, dear Taurus, there can be roadblocks along the way, mostly in the way of unmet responsibilities. Today, you may be your own worst enemy in this regard. Unresolved problems from your past or issues that were left up in the air can stand in your way. There can be surprising new information or circumstances that throw off your schedule or plans with a Sun-Uranus square coloring the first half of the day. Seek to satisfy your cravings for something different by varying your routine, learning something new, or enjoying a new activity, rather than stir up trouble or remain in limbo, doubting yourself. Later today, good energy is with you for networking and for feeling that you are part of a team. If it means giving up something for the sake of the group, be willing. Group work can be beneficial, or a friend can build your confidence or convince you to pursue your goals and desires.

Gemini

Gemini

Surprises or changes in plans and moods can point to the need to adjust expectations and attitudes today, dear Gemini. If you’re feeling especially tense or restless, try to channel excess energy into worthwhile pursuits. Investigating new approaches and experimenting with new methods can satisfy an itch for doing something different and unusual. While it can seem natural to part with things or even people now, wait until you’ve thought or talked things through. There can be uneasy feelings about commitments temporarily. As well, there can be conflicting feelings as you crave intimacy and independence in equal measure. With Mars in your career and reputation sector, you’re feeling more ambitious these days, and later today, either people or
circumstances seem to work entirely in your favor. You are especially detail-oriented, and with research and analysis, you can solve a difficult problem.

Cancer

Cancer

A square between the Sun and Uranus colors the first half of today with some tension and rebellious energy, dear Caner. It may be particularly challenging following all of the rules or sticking to a schedule. There can be some difficult or erratic energy in a relationship, particularly with a partner, parent, or authority figure. If a change in approach is needed, try out one now. Rigidity seems to create more resistance, so aim to be flexible. While you crave more understanding in a close relationship, if long-term goals are clashing, find ways to work around and accept this. You’re not in any mood for others telling you what to do today, but as the day advances, you see the benefits and strategic value of working with instead of against someone. You may be teaming up with a significant other to achieve a goal with great success. It’s a commitment-friendly time. Your instincts are excellent for putting your energy into activities that are likely to thrive and leave you feeling accomplished or empowered.

Leo

Leo Glyph Symbol Horoscope

You may stumble upon a new way to approach an old health or work problem today, dear Leo, so try to stay positive and centered if your schedule changes abruptly. There can be difficulties concentrating with numerous things distracting you. There can be a real disdain for routine now, however, and even if you want to stick close to your plans, something can come up that changes them. New interests can distract you from the task at hand. Aim to find ways to fill your need for change, new horizons, and learning new things, but keep your routines going so that you stay grounded. The key is to find a better balance. The second half of the day has great potential to be increasingly more productive and satisfying. You are rather fearless when it comes to problem solving and might discover a solution to a problem now, or you can turn a negative situation into a positive. You are willing to make important changes and to put the necessary effort in as well. Sharing work with someone can be enjoyable and productive now.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol Horoscope

In the first half of the day, a Sun-Uranus influence challenges you to better understand your feelings and expectations of others, dear Virgo. The atmosphere can be a little excitable or chaotic, and it can be difficult to discern how you feel. However, Uranian energy is also useful for awakening your mind to new ways of doing things that pull you out of ruts. You might find creative inspiration right now. Expect the unexpected and avoid hanging too tightly to traditions or the past. If you can manage to work at your own pace today, take the opportunity. Consciously pull your energy away from tense situations and let go of stress, but keep an open mind to new approaches and fresh perspectives. In the second half of the day, you are in a more focused and deliberate frame of mind. There can also be very productive activities with a significant person in your life. You seek out more intensity and passion in a relationship or project, and you’re likely to find it now.

Libra

Libra

Competitive energies with family or a partner may keep you on edge in the first half of the day, dear Libra. Uranus is active today and can be a fickle and rebellious energy, but it also has the effect of awakening us to new ways of thinking and new spins on old traditions. Change can be unsettling, but if it helps us to move forward and away from bad habits, then it’s beneficial. What’s important now is to work with Uranus instead of resisting it. Think of new ways to relate to others, freshen your mind with alternative possibilities, and open your heart to change. Interruptions to your plans may set you on a detour that ends up feeling right. In the second half of the day, focus improves tremendously, and you can barrel through tasks that usually would take much longer to complete. Concentration and commitment are the keys right now. This is a great time to get a leg up on work or health routines.

Scorpio

Scorpio Horoscope

A Sun-Uranus square aspect today suggests some unrest or interruptions of plans, dear Scorpio. However, this can inspire a new perspective on a matter and, ideally, sends you in happy new directions. A minor work or scheduling crisis may need managing. If you’ve been suppressing frustration, it might emerge suddenly. It can be difficult to be productive with scattered energy, and stress can have a way of aggravating health problems, so do what you can to center yourself and relax. Today and tomorrow as well, remember your limits and avoid over-scheduling. In the second half of the day, your confidence builds. You can successfully channel your energy into creative or productive pursuits. This can be a great time to begin a new project or to apply yourself to important works in progress. You have more influence and persuasive power than usual.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Horoscope

The desire to stick with what’s comfortable and familiar is strong these days, dear Sagittarius, but today, there can be some wild cards that keep you on your toes. Playing it by ear is necessary. Changes in plans can stimulate new approaches and ideas, so keep an open mind. Watch for some impatience, particularly in dealings with romantic interests or friends. Also be careful with your valuables, as you are a little more inclined to lose or misplace something. Later today, you might consider getting a new project started as you have the foresight and patience for devising a long-term strategy. This is also a strong time for romantic relationships and interactions with children. Home renovations may be in focus, but reorganization may just as well be in order. Take a closer look at expenses and think in terms of what you already have and how to better use these resources.

Capricorn

Capricorn Horoscope

With the Sun and Uranus forming a square to one another today, if you’ve been burying frustrations, they may very well emerge and disrupt things now, dear Capricorn. Family relationships can be a little tense or strained, or unexpected events in your personal life have you feeling off schedule. Try to take a break from the routine and find new ways to enjoy yourself if your current setup seems stifling. However, be sure to entertain ideas for incorporating more stimulation into these things going forward so that abrupt mood changes are less likely. Changes of plans can sometimes lead to new ways of looking at a matter, and this can be helpful even if the initial disruption annoys you. Later today, your energy reserves are strong, so you may want to take on projects that require concentration or competitive activities. You may uncover answers to complex problems.

Aquarius

Aquarius

This morning, there may be changes to plans to deal with, dear Aquarius, or possibly news or conversations that touch a nerve. There may also be a tendency to speak of a matter prematurely. You can be quite stubborn when it comes to doing things on your own or your own way, and this can lead to conflicts with others now. Don’t be afraid to look within for answers. Uranus is your ruler and is also known as the awakener, stimulating change. Even if disruptions seem abrupt, they offer you a chance to see yourself and your inner motives more clearly. Boredom with your routine can lead to new adventures or a bit of mischief now! Later today, focused energy and determination can help you turn around a financial or emotional matter. Satisfaction comes from a job well done. This is a great time for getting rid of excess baggage in your life, as you have a stronger ability to see what needs to be left behind.

Pisces

PiscesThrough the events of the day, and possibly disruptive ones, dear Pisces, you become aware of the need to make changes to your long-term goals or approach to friendships. People may be emotionally excitable, and schedules may not be honored as the Sun and Uranus clash in the first half of the day. You can feel pressure to come up with ideas for new projects. Erratic returns on your projects can be a source of tension. Some of you may feel motivated to fix a friendship, or you may want to break free of someone’s hold on you. Address the need for change and a little more freedom, but aim to make these changes consciously rather than reacting abruptly to the limits or restrictions you may be feeling. Later today, your display of strength of character can open up opportunities to you, as others are seeing you as particularly competent. Your desire to make things happen has been strong recently with Mars in your sign, and now you benefit from the support of Pluto to make positive changes and improvements.
