Gypsum; Selenite and Desert Rose (thank you for that, btw. You know who you are.)
Cancer Mars opposite Capricorn Pluto today and I did a quickie read for highest most benevolent insight for all – from The Faeries Oracle.
Is asking for help hard for you ? Do you accept your limits gracefully ?
Mars in Cancer HAS to bob & weave to survive – it lives in the Moon-ruled sign of Cancer and that means fluctuation. Apply pressure, rest, repeat.
This concept was so evident in the video I was watching this am, Cueva de los Cristales, or the Cave of Crystals in the Naica mine, Chihuahua, Mexico. Explorers have to accept their physical limits while in a cave with air temperatures reaching up to 58 °C (136 °F) with 90 to 99 percent humidity. Popped in comments – is fantastic !
Caves are ruled by Saturn/Capricorn; heat is ruled by Mars; humidity is ruled by Moon/Cancer. Pluto is the struggle to bring the hidden to the surface.
Long gone family stuff is getting a bit of a re-boot in order to cleanse and heal. Think mineral springs, salt baths and saunas. The big salty, ugly cry. Toxin removers, all.
Selenite is used to enhance spiritual activation and communication with the higher self by stimulating the Ajna (Third Eye), the Sanhasrara (Crown) and the etheric chakras above the head. Promotes flexibility and alleviates problems with the tongue and prostate when taken as a gem elixir.. Some specimens are enhydro, or containing water pockets, which would presumably help the bearer tap higher emotional states of being.
Associated with Taurus, vibrates to the number 8.
The card I drew above is The Laume, a woodland fae, and guardian spirit of orphans in Eastern Baltic mythology. She represents unconditional giving and receiving.
We are asked to find balance in these areas – be generous with others, kind, compassionate and nurturing – giving of our time and efforts to help ease the path for others. When we fall out of balance, our spiritual life becomes blocked, we are unable to process effectively and this blockage can hinder the physical and mental planes of existence as well.
Moon is yin; Mars is yang – fluctuate – give & take. Dealing in signs of Cancer and Capricorn means well of psyche, old stuff, tribal turf. Nurture others and self – walk the path of balance.
Think inclusively, la familia, ALL ONE.
The best use of Mars in Cancer – power with caring.
