They are amazing!!

Sacred & Spiritual Crystals: Fulgurite: “The Finger of God”

By Andrew Pacholyk, MS L.Ac

The power behind Earth’s minerals can be felt the minute you put a crystal in your hands or near your physical body. Crystals are the treasures of the earth. These stones are filled with energy to be used. So for this Holy week, I will be discussing some crystals with loving, spiritual connections.

Fulgurite: “The Finger of God”

Properties: The lightning stone, fulgurites are some of the most powerful stones and along with the power of prayer, they can help to manifest one’s visions. Fulgurites have a high-frequency vibration and seem to hold a clear, strong resonance with the powerful electrical force that created them. Their extreme “lightning energy” is believed to be the touch of the Divine. This energy, which now resides in them, acts as a magnifier of one’s clearer intention, building a powerful resonance between oneself and the powers of the higher Universe.

Fulgurites are powerful stones for grounding. Their energy can be used to arouse the Kundalini forces at the Root Chakra and move through each Chakra at every level of our light body, purifying and cleansing the entire system. The empowering energy from this stone opens the higher Chakras to Divine energy. It opens and clears the psychic and intuitive senses, encourages our sense of creativity and inner power, allows for assistance with divine prophecy and helps one in rapidly connecting with the frequency of the Universal truth through prayer or meditation. Fulgurite has shown to help one to experience major breakthroughs when kept close and to release habitual patterns that no longer serve us. This a particularly beneficial stone for healers, teachers, psychics and channelers as well as others who need to accurately relay information and guidance from the higher realm. Fulgurite can quickly clear negative patterns from the emotional body and assist in clearing all forms of anger and confusion within relationships. Fulgurite is also excellent at shedding light on the karmic aspects of relationships with others in your life. This stone attunes to both gemini and virgo.

Folk Remedies: Fulgurite has been used for healing blockages and strengthening blood flow in the extremities and capillaries. It is a beneficial stone for strengthening muscles and tissues of the body. Use fulgurite to activate the thymus, improve the immune system, and to balance the nervous systems of the physical and etheric bodies.

Feng Shui: Use in the North area for career and lifepath, in the Southwest for relationships and the West for creativity.

Crystal Cleansing: Keep away from water and heat, as this electrically charged sand will fall apart if you rearrange it’s structure.

History: Fulgurite is the name given to fused Quartz, Si02, which has been struck by lightning and melting sand or rock. The best known fulgurites are found in quartz sand, where the fulgurite take the form of tubes, sometimes exceeding a half inch or more in diameter. This type of formation is called sand fulgurite. As the lightning strikes the Earth and courses downward through the sand, the sand is instantly super heated, melted and fused together. After cooling, hard hollow tubes can be located beneath the surface of the sand, generally decreasing in diameter and sometimes branching as they descend, sometimes extending for several feet. The outer surfaces sand fulgurites are often rough with adhering, unfused Quartz sand grains. The inner surfaces and openings of the tubes are usually smooth and glassy, in some specimens resembling an applied glaze, sometimes with blister-like bubbling present. Rock fulgurites are formed when lightning strikes the surface of a rock, melting and fusing the surface, and sometimes the interior of the rock. The melting point of Si02 is 2950oF. The color of the glassy, fused Si02 varies from pale gray, to smoky gray, to shiny black. The name fulgurite is from the Latin word “fulgur” meaning lightning.

The Chariot

Meaning:

When the Chariot arrives today, be sure that you are the ones taking the reins in order to control the outcome of your situation. The Chariot also could signify a Cancer in your life, or a Cancer about to make an appearance in your life. The zodiac sign Cancer is a hard worker, and attains success through long and sustained efforts. This is the message of the Chariot. Victory is assured, but it won’t come quickly. This could mean a new skill you take on, some upgrading in education, or taking the lead on a project at work. It could also mean that you make the next big move in love. It’s important to remember that you only take on what you can complete, otherwise, victory will be lost. Know also that this card is about effort that leads to success. This is not victory that comes knocking on your door. You will need to put some effort in, and there could be some bumps along the way, but with the effort and determination of the Chariot, victory is almost definitely assured.

Symbolism:

When the Chariot arrives, know that you are well on your way to a well earned victory. The Chariot is embodied by the zodiac sign Cancer, and this is Cancer’s card. Cancer is a hard worker and doesn’t realize anything quickly, and these traits are the inherent meaning of the Chariot. Here we see a man on a chariot, surrounded by the golden aura of victory. This card symbolizes a time in the ancient days when the victor would ride through the streets on a chariot to celebrate a victory. In this card, you are holding the reins, and are feeling great power and the smell of a big win. This is the card that says, you are in the driver’s seat of your own Destiny! Moving ahead towards your victory is not only possible, but probable when you see your card. The important thing to remember when you see this card is, you are the Master of your Fate.

Sard stones have been in use since the bronze age. Many stones are a similar color to Carnelian except most are a darker orange. Sard stones were named for the ancient Turkish city named Sardis.

The meaning of the name Sardonyx relates to the fact that it is a mixture of Onyx and Sard, a type of Orange Carnelian that was well known in ancient times.

Although many people think of Onyx as being black, as the black Onyx stone is so prevalent, Onyx comes in a variety of colors and commonly in bands.

Simply place a stone in each corner of your home or the corner of specific rooms where you spend the most time.

The Empress

Thanks to Andrea Green, she gives the meaning and journal tip for this week!

The Empress is the card of nature, growth, slow and gradual natural change, patience, pregnancy, harvests, the seasons passing, and life itself.

She can be compared with the other female cards in the Major Arcana, for example, the World card is how Nature appears to us, and the Star card is hidden nature. The Empress is the goddess, the power and patterns behind everything.

This card means that all things are due in time, and may also be compared to the Queen of Pentacles, another very nature-based card. It carries a similar meaning of nurturing, of compassion and care. Both are cards of the mother and motherhood.

If it appears in a past position, that time of growth has passed, and nothing new will arise; it is time to seek a new field to seed, nurture and harvest.

Journal Exercise & Insiders Tip

When reading, we can weave an interpretation from all the individual symbols on a card – even doing a very deep and detailed one-card reading!

Here’s how we would do it on the Empress card, and then for your journal this week, why not try it with one of the other cards, or one you pull for a real question?

Full-Grown Wheat: “What you have planned and seeded, worked so hard to accomplish, has now come to happen – it is time to take the fruit of your work. In a way, it is up to you to now harvest and reap what you have sown. Take time to enjoy this pause in your hard work”.

Venus Symbol: “Everything is coming together, perhaps even a romantic or equal partnership – the circle and the cross – the active and the passive. It is all happening in its own good time and good things will grow from this union”.

Shield: “You are protected, and can be assured that there is safety in what is happening. Everything is being taken care of, so go for the enjoyment of the ride”.

Couch/Cushion: “Relax and sink into what is happening, don’t fight it. Take time to rest and recover, as things go their own course. Don’t meddle or interfere at this point, there is no need to do anything other than sit back”.

Sceptre: “Whilst you are the cause of what is happening, you should pull back from adding any more into the mix. There is a time to be regal and take the high ground, and this is it – there is no need to keep digging or working!”

Crown of Stars: “Everything will happen in time, and you should have patience, with an eye to the fates and fortunes of the stars. What you have set in motion is now flowing to a conclusion, let it happen”.

Waterfall: “Again, there is a flow and a torrent of things coming to a head, so the less you are involved at this late stage, the better”.

Where else can you see symbols on the Empress?

How would this apply to a job question? A relationship question?

Now try this with another card!

Today’s Tarot Card is The Wheel of Fortune!

Meaning:

The Wheel of Fortune arriving in your Tarot is a reminder that the planet of luck Jupiter is on your side. The Wheel of Fortune also has symbolism rich in the Fixed Signs of the zodiac. So you may also get a message pertaining one of the Fixed Signs, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius, or Taurus. When the Wheel of Fortune arrives in your day, it is a very optimistic wave of Jupiter’s magic wand. It is always a good omen to see the Wheel of Fortune, as your luck is truly taking a turn, and in the most positive and beneficial way. All of your karma is coming back to you, and you can expect good rewards when the Wheel of Fortune arrives. This is not something that you have to do, and no action is required on your part. Rather, this is something that is happening to you, or an external event that changes things in your favor. And expect things to happen quickly when it does!

Symbolism:

When you see the Wheel of Fortune arrive in your reading, know that you are being offered a message of karmic hope, and things are about to take a turn. Here we have the famous wheel of fortune, symbolized by the fixed signs of the zodiac (Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius), spinning in your favor. This card is denoted by the number 10, which in the Tarot represents a completed cycle. Destiny and karma are turning in your favor when the Wheel of Fortune arrives. Expect some information of good luck to come your way, and for the forces of nature to finally turn in your favor. This is not an action card. But rather, the message of this card is that to just…wait for it. Your karmic reward is well on its way.

Today’s Tarot Card is The Sun!

Meaning:

When you see The Sun appear in your Tarot reading or in your Daily Tarot, then you know it’s going to be a great day! The Sun is shining on you! This day is the summer of your life, and the Sun embodies success, abundance, and an optimistic feel to the situation that can not be matched by anything else. Success is not just probable, it is inevitable. There is confidence aligned with this bright picture. Like the child on top of the horse, you are on top of the world, and victory is yours for the taking. This is also not an internal success. This is the kind of success that the world sees, and admires. You and your life and the situation at hand is indeed enlightened, and the abundance or prosperity you seek in this situation will soon surround you like the beautiful flowers in this card.

Symbolism:

The Sun is one of the happiest cards in the Tarot, if not the happiest one to see in any reading. It almost doesn’t matter where the Sun falls in a reading, if it appears, it’s always a good omen in any position or placement. This is a bright card that has the Sun as the biggest symbol on it. There are flowers growing that symbolize abundance and joy, and the abundance that comes from having light in your world. A child decorated with the wreath of laurels that signify success plays on a white horse that represents purity, joy, and innocence. A bright orange wreath suggests action and movement will occur in the situation that will have you feeling like you are on top of the world. You may create this action, or something wonderful may simply find its way to you. In any event, the Sun is definitely shining on you and your situation.

Today’s Tarot Card is the King of Cups!

Meaning:

When the King of Cups arrives, the message is a very positive one of love. Someone may enter your day with a big heart and a lot of love and support for you. It could be an older male, or it could be one of the Water Signs. There is a generous and loving spirit in play when you see this card, and this card brings the promise that the love you are looking for in life is around you. It may be someone that you aren’t expecting, or it may just be a family member that will make an appearance in your day. This is not a short lived love, but one that fills and completes you, even if it is not a romantic love.

Symbolism:

When we see the King of Cups in the Tarot, we are being told that an older man with a big heart will make an appearance in our day. It may not necessarily be an older male, but it will be someone with the love that symbolizes that of an older male. It could be a father figure, or someone that simply has the love that a father figure would. Cups represent Water Signs, and so this could be a message of a Pisces, Cancer, or Scorpio entering your day to help you with a key emotional matter. You may also just be getting the message with this card that someone cares very deeply about you. This is an emotionally balanced love that you do not need to question. And these feelings will be there for some time, as this King has all of the love in the world to offer, and isn’t going anywhere.

Today’s Tarot Card is the Ace of Wands!

Phew, better card today!

Meaning:

The Ace of Wands is a message from Universe that you are attracting the qualities of the Wands in an area of your life today. There will be a new beginning or the potential of a new beginning offered in an experience for you today, and it will be marked by enthusiasm, creativity, passion, and excitement. It carries with it a sense of adventure, and a spring like bounce to your step. If you are thinking of starting something new, like a new relationship or job, this card is a very good omen. Expect a message or an invitation to arrive in your day unexpectedly and out of the blue when you see this card.

Symbolism:

The Ace of Wands is a wonderful omen to see in any reading. It symbolizes new beginnings of many kinds, particularly those that are in the creative or passionate pursuits of life! This is a new beginning that is going to happen quickly, and is going to come out of the blue. This is not one you actively need to pursue, the hand coming from the clouds with a beautiful glowing wand symbolizes this gift coming to you. The new beginnings most often associated with this card are new relationships, a first date, travel plans, or an exciting new opportunity or project in the creative fields.
