The Lunar Eclipse-Supermoon today is a perfect opportunity to cleanse and charge your crystal collection.
After clearing them all under running water, I put my whole crystal 'family' out last night, and burnt Palo Santo (sacred South American wood for clearing) around them as a means of protecting them as well. I leave them outside for the full 24 hours around the time of the full moon.
My crystals are my allies in the healing sessions I do, whether it's a tarot reading, Reiki, vibrational healing, spiritual guidance, meditation and guided journeying, or Family Constellation work, I use them as grounding Earthy allies and amplifiers.
I've had some of them for more than thirty years, and they are my companions in the journey.
Annular Solar Eclipse on April 29th at 4:17pm (AEST)
So how are you faring in the midst of this group of powerful planetary, and lunar aspects? (see my last article)
The Solar Eclipse tomorrow marks a brief end to an intensive regrouping, letting go, opening up and staying true to yourself, courtesy of the Cardinal Grand Cross we had last week, and the ongoing relationship between Uranus and Pluto (until March next year).
It brings with it the possibility to shift your consciousness. Eclipses usually bring disruption, so use this time to interrupt your usual ways of operating and dealing with situations, which perhaps haven't been as effective as you would like. Allow for other possibilities to unfold. Always with the intention for the best outcome for all concerned ofcourse.
Surrender to the force of change which is in the air and stay conscious.
The emphasis of the Annular Solar Eclipse does seem to be on relationships and how we experience what we call love. Stand back for a moment and ask yourself about the nature of love. Is the love you share with your significant other and your close friends governed by attachment and fear? Or is it a blending of great souls who bring more than the sum of each into the picture in an overflowing of inclusive humanitarian and compassionate love?
The eclipse, which is a new moon, is in Taurus. And Venus the ruler of Taurus is in Pisces. Enquire into the nature of your love. Is it about indulging in the senses, reveling in sensual bliss and delights. Or is it about a bigger picture and a sense of belonging to the whole? Either way, and with an unconditional heart allow your curiosity to linger on these questions.
