Painfully Beautiful

The pain is quite unbearable at times. I have to breathe through it. The planetary transits overlaid on my birthchart is something to behold. It’s my personal April 2015 Grand Cross in all the same signs as last year with many of the same planets. Last year’s energy was gentle and lovingly supportive. This time it’s tough love.

Things have been hyperactive for me since the coronal mass ejection energies of March 17, 2015. It feels like a scouring of deep wounds prior to finally wrapping them in bandages for healing. This isn’t the part where I am thinking too much about the healing. I only notice the energetic movements around my heart space. They come in at various speeds, densities, amplitudes, frequencies, colors, vibrations, patterns, and can be like smoke.

Here is the bird’s eye view of the energies at work in my life over the last four weeks (red lines are challenging):

Thank goodness the challenging aspects are leveling out! Ascension is painfully beautiful.

The tumbled stones I have been carrying around for the last four weeks include malachite, tiger eye, hematite, black tourmaline, and flourite.

Deep Cleaning Tumbled Stones

Every morning I choose new or different ones to carry. Maybe they choose me? These ones keep coming up. Helping me heal (malachite) through understanding (tiger eye), grounding (hematite), bringing in new energy (flourite), and protecting me all the while (black tourmaline).

Solar Eclipse Crystal Grid

My March 2015 Solar Eclipse Crystal Grid was set up a few days ago with the intention of providing loving support for healing and health. My $2 thrift store wooden serving dish holds my collection of tumbled stones. My flat drum sits right on top. It is the perfect crystal grid layout compete with light language inspired details. Synchronicity in its perfection.

Synchronicity in its perfection.

This is my sacred space complete with Native American Tarot Card Deck and a lovely smelling candle. My parents have been under the weather since late last week. I chose the stones in this grid specifically to increase health and vitality as well as love.

The dark stones on top are green aventurine. They bring a sense of peace, harmony, and gentle strength. Green aventurine is quite pretty with shimmers of fuschite embedded in its quartz structure.

The pink stones are rose quartz. They brought up some old relationship issues needing transmutation. I attribute this to the eclipse effects. Rose quartz typically provides a sense of comfort and acceptance from a place of unconditional love. Which is actually what they did in this case as I was ready for it.

My parents met me for lunch today. It took them a little over a week to feel better. It only took two days for them to feel better after setting up the grid with intention to provide loving support for healing and health.

I believe the tumbled stones hidden under the drum greatly enhance the energy of the stones on top. Crystals are amazing!
