Hands-on Healing

imageMary-El Tarot

Upcoming Chiron direct has led me to dig a little deeper into healing. 
Good healers tend to have the Sun in a fire sign or Scorpio.  Uranus and Neptune strong indicate absent or faith healing, the kind of healing used in reiki attunements across time and space.

Naturopaths are strong in Virgo and Scorpio, they tend to have natal charts that show adaptability and magnetism.  Magnetic healers tend to have Scorpio strong at birth, with Sun or Rising, or Neptune in good aspect to Venus and Mercury, Jupiter trine Moon, or Mars in the 12th in good aspect.  Also note hands are Mercury ruled.

Symptoms of the ill often fluctuate with the magnetics of both the body and the earth, worsening at night when the Moon (feeling) is the stronger luminary force.  Also because healing often is taking place with the assistance of another, know that those with harmonious rising signs/6th house/Saturn aspects will indicate compatibility and therefore, greater healing exchange.  The energies will support one another, allowing greater trust, energy exchange and speedier healing to occur.

I drew a card with the question:
What need we know to help us heal with Chiron’s direct motion ?

We must free ourselves from the prisons of our own minds.  The reverberations of doubt that echo must be shaken.  Change your perspective, see your situation from a different vantage point.  Perception shifts will open the door to knowledge that will change you forever.  Keep your eyes on the outcome, not the distractions that slow your progress.  Know thyself.  Be true to your brave heart.
Chiron moves in square to Sagittarius Venus, quincunx Uranus in Aries.  Higher seeing experience/knowing meets fresh new mindsets ala Aries.  Be the change.

imageNext question:
Easier said that done.  How do we begin to go about it?

Know their are wheels within wheels of Fire.  Creation, destruction, transformative power manifested on the material plane so we may experience and grow. This is the hero’s journey we call life.  Inspiration, sweat, blood and tears that form and shape the energy of our souls. We live, we learn.
Rise above everything, see the world from a divine perspective.  This is you and your life: falling on occasion, once again rising to meet your destiny, your true greatness.

Be humble for you are made of earth. Be noble for you are made of stars.

Neptune direct at 4 Pisces November 16, interp here on Tide Turns.

I found it curious that the best time to hypnotize someone is an Air Moon – particularly an Aquarius Moon.  It’s an intellectual moon, mind over matter/mindset.  Interesting, yes ?

What makes a subject easily hypnotized ?
Not too surprising is it ?  
Easily swayed like the tides, emotional and permeable, Neptune is hard to get a handle on, hidden in fog, smoke and mirrors.  Deception and illusion and/or the creatively inspired artist.
Tortured…?…well, that’s optional.

Those who are easily hypnotized show Negative Yin signs strong in the natal.
Negative signs are Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces.
Strong negative = Ascendant, Midheaven, angles, holding luminaries and/or Mercury.

Those who are easily hypnotized have Neptune in hard aspect aka conjunct/square luminaries or personal planets showing inner conflict resolution, great build up of tension/release.

This hard Neptune is particularly dangerous for those with afflicted Neptune at ASC or in the 6th, 8th, 10th or 12th.  Be cautious of water, emotions, qi vamps, hypnosis or dabbling in the occult without the good sense to back it up.

Think about these things as Neptune stations direct, for at this time more than any other, there is vulnerability – seeing around corners requires several perspective shifts and/or intense divination sessions.

This card I drew specifically for Neptune direct – to see behind the veil, around the corner and through to the heart of the matter.

Q: What do we need to know about Neptune direct that we cannot see ? 

A: Defense of what is valued.  
Think love, money, power and personal zen.
Stuff and things are Taurus, love and emotions are Venus which rules Taurus.

Bull-headed stubborn ownership of personal place on earth, wherever or whomever that is/or you consider it to be.
Is home four walls and a roof (TWD ref haha) or is home where the heart is ?
Or have you given up on love and chosen career instead ?
Work to defend and protect what you truly value.
Only you know.

Look to your natal Venus (lower octave of Neptune) for clues.
Also note that Venus moves into Sagittarius soon after Neptune stations direct (click Tide Turns above) and that means Scorpion possessiveness gives up the ghost for more adventurous travels.

Late Venus Scorpio is richly saturated in sexual power, self-possession aka internal metamorphosis.
Make it work !

Look also to your natal Taurus house as well as natal Mars.
Note also Mars is in Capricorn, an earthy achievement sign which considers itself for good reason to be the Big Kahuna.  Mars is exalted in the sign of work, career and achievement.

New Moon in Capricorn, folks.  Draw up your maps, plot your course  !

New moon signals a time of planting seeds for future growth, new moon in Capricorn – specifically long term yield and growth on the material plane.  Capricorn is the career driven 10th house sign – the midheaven – the peak of public achievements.  Capricorn rules time, building, Earth and stones.

I am a Capricorn rising with this new moon conjunct my Ascendant, quintile (spiritual gifts) Mercury, trine my Venus /Jupiter on the 8th (my Pluto is also in the 8th which rules mines) so ~ a timely I love rocks / crystals post !

Sun and Moon are coming up to conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, which rules mines and the underground where crystals are formed…hmmm…perhaps this is the light in dark places I was referring to in a previous post !

Pictured above is a specimen of rainbow moonstone, ruled by Moon and Neptune.  (I have Moon exalted in Toro, opposite Neptune which is my most highly aspected planet, and I wear rainbow moonstone often.)

Moonstone is a feldspar, a type of rock which makes up to 60% of the earth’s crust.  You may come into contact with feldspar every day without even knowing it.  Resistant to chemical corrosion, it is used in glassmaking, ceramics, as a filler in paint, plastics, and rubber.  Moonstone is formed by twinning which is the layering of atoms between chemically compatible (high temperatures) and incompatible (low temperatures) intergrowths which separates the layers causing shimmer and refraction of light.
A few words about my kinship with stones :

The person carrying the stone must seek enlightenment within/without, but I DO see stones as lower frequency fortifiers, if you will, while on the journey.

A cleanse/ prayer/ intent fashioned as an energy to work in accordance with the stone, which I feel holds the frequency of the intent longer and over a more drawn out period of time because of its slower vibration.

Then it works as a ‘helper’.  For example, if in a busy moment in a noisy crowd, it can be a ‘touch- stone’ reminder of the committment made during the longer cleanse/prayer ceremony.

Like a mental breaker switch- touch it- get a reminder of the direction of personal will and intent.  When under stressful energies, it is there to fortify.

With that said, an acorn, buckeye, piece of driftwood, shell or whatever could hold the same gift from an above ground/ in the sea standpoint, particularly if it was a gift from a loved one ~ which adds a zing to the vibe.

While river stones and crystals are earthEarthEARTH underground and hold power in a different way since they are formed over eons by pressure.

I feel they offer a solid document, if you will, of the agreement humans make coming into this Earth arena.  They are remnants of our ancestors and carry knowledge of other times in rock form.

When I hold a fossil, ammonite in particular, I am reminded of time and my small, yet important place in it – am reminded to act accordingly as the spiral of life reaches ever outward.

Think of the stones as allies on the journey.  My stones will remain long after I’m gone … gives perspective, you know..?

Moonstone is the stone of the High Priestess, the keeper of divine feminine mysteries.

It can be used to aid the journey inward, reveal emotions, instincts and hidden memories.  It is helpful in dealing with fluctuation, cycles, changes, and it fosters serenity, sensitivity, and nurturing.

Moonstone can help guide you on your spiritual journey with the aid of the Great Mother, Gaia.  Moonstone teaches the cycles of life and how to work with them, it helps give insight, a higher perspective, a higher vibration, and increases empathic abilities.

Rainbow moonstone is a protection stone that diffuses a rainbow prism of energies throughout the aura, it helps deflect negativity and clears the emotional body.

Historically, (it wouldn’t be a Cappy Moon, and I wouldn’t be a Cappy ASC if I didn’t go into the history) moonstone is said to predict the future if held under the tongue on a full moon.
Hindus believed it was moonlight, hardened.  It was used to aid in birth (I am currently having Pluto square Saturn – my chart ruler and am using it to aid in re-birth), restore balance and harmony between feuding lovers (pass the same moonstone between each other every two weeks) as well as to cure sleeplessness.  It is a good stone for teenagers as it helps balance and soften the emotions and alleviates mood imbalances.

On a subtle energy level, moonstone when used as an elixir, is beneficial for female health of all kinds.  It alleviates stomach (moon ruled) and digestion problems by activating the Manipura, or solar plexus chakra behind the navel.

It also is very beneficial for alleviating anxiety and stress by bringing balance to the emotional body.  On a cellular level, moonstone elixir regenerates human skin tissue and stimulates the pituitary (master of hormone production) gland.

Moonstone aligns the astral and emotional bodies.
