Besides taking into consideration stone composition, electromagnetic energy, patterns, and symbols, ancients also considered astronomy in their ancient sites’ building plans. Many buildings were constructed in relation to the stars, the zodiac, and constellations.
Gazing at stars, the ancients became aware that we are a tiny part of a much larger reality. By studying the skies and integrating that knowledge into their buildings, they were able to resonate and reconnect with what they considered their real origins and their gods.
We can see this in many ancient sites—the Giza Plateau pyramids and Karnac Temple Complex in Luxor, Egypt; Stonehenge in England, Machu Picchu in Peru, Adam’s Calendar in South Africa, and Angkor Wat in Cambodia, to name a few.
For some ancient cultures, like the Ancient Egyptians, patterns and behaviors of the sky were interconnected with their beliefs. For example, the constellation of Orion represented Osiris, who was the god of death, rebirth, and the afterlife. The precise orientation and alignment of the three pyramids of the Giza Plateau with the three belt stars of the Orion constellation is proof of their high degree of technical skill in watching the heavens.
The horizon was extremely important to these ancient cultures, as it was here that the sun—for them, a god and a source of life—appeared and disappeared daily. Solstices and equinoxes were of special importance. Some temples were built so that sunlight entered a room at only one precise time of the year.
Astrology was rooted in our invisible energetic interconnection and resonance with the universe. Through this connection, the heavens acted as mirrors to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and of our reality. In the same way, crystal resonance is based on our invisible energetic interconnection. But with crystals, they connect with our energy field so that we can experience healing, transformation, and new resonance.
By working internally and observing myself and clients for many years, I’ve developed the ability to recognize different patterns and to relate them to stones and inner beliefs.
To resonate with patterns from a mind perspective means that we resonate with what they mean specifically for us, according to our personal story and experiences. Crystals will direct their energy toward the place within us that we need to work on the most so that healing and transformation can happen. For example, smoky quartz and amethyst could mean for someone that he or she has a mother wound or that it’s time for him or her to transform a belief learned from the environment he or she was born into or lives in.
The specific stone that a client chooses shows me what that person is resonating with in that particular moment. Astrology, the influence of the stars and planet over us, can be a great compliment for crystal healing, as we see in this excerpt from The Crystal Blueprint:
“Patterns of thinking, or archetypes, as Jung called them, could be related to planets. Each planet had its own personality and corresponding abilities, events, occupations, and unconscious patterns. For example, the sun was connected to God and father; Mars was connected to such characteristics as vitality and aggression; and Venus was connected to femininity, love, and fertility. The moon was the ‘planet’ that represented the archetype of the mother. In a person’s individual birth chart, the placement of the moon will speak about his or her relationship with his or her mother—and if the individual is a mother, the relationship she has with her own children. Many astrologers feel that the relationship between the sun and the moon in the natal chart reveals the types of messages we received from our parents or parental figures.”
The foundation and framework for our learned behaviors and beliefs can be found through the zodiac archetypes. Psychologist Carl Jung claimed that there are a fixed number of models or types we all share, without necessarily having been through them because they live in our collective unconscious. The twelve signs of the zodiac, the planets, the astrological houses, and the aspects represent patterns into which human personality traits can be grouped. Astrological archetypes influence how we resonate with our reality, but they also offer inner clues as to how we can grow into our authentic self.
In my 20 years of one-on-one practice, during the first crystal healing session, I would usually read the client’s astrology chart. For me, the astrology chart is a navigation device that helps me map the client’s internal work and gifts and, based on this, set the best strategies to guide the client toward reconnecting with his or her unique potential. The key here is to transform our weaknesses and maximize our strengths. Crystals are what allow us to get there.
To reach this purpose, I always look for specific celestial bodies. The sun and the moon, for example, represent respectively the conscious and the unconscious mind. Saturn and Pluto speak about the places within us where our challenges lie—what we have to work on the most. These difficult planets can also help us achieve our mastery. And Venus and Jupiter speak to our expansive qualities that can connect us with our true potential and gifts.
But no sign is better than another. Each has its own strengths, weaknesses, and energy. It’s important to note that a birth chart doesn’t determine your fate. Astrology shows us our predispositions. But as with everything in life, we can engage in conscious inner work to transform and heal ourselves and live out our best options in life. And what better way to do it than with crystals.
This is an invitation to find out what your astrological archetypes are and create a strategy to work these archetypes through resonance and the power of crystal energy vibration. If you want to learn about how ancients worked with astrology and quartz crystals, read The Crystal Blueprint.
I don’t know about you, but I love astrology!
I’m passionate about how simple symbols can encode how we work—from what we do best to what is difficult for us. When I think of astrology I think of the instruction manuals that come with some appliances, providing how-to and troubleshooting guidelines for ensuring the item’s best performance.
Astrology and crystal resonance are a great combo! Astrology gives you the guidelines, and crystal resonance does the magic.
You already know the theory. Let’s skip the talk and put this knowledge into practice.
The first thing you’ll need to find out is your astrological sign. If you already know, I invite you to google the negative traits of your sign. If you know your ascendant zodiacal sign, you can also do the same with this. For example, if you are Pisces or your ascendant is in Pisces, google “Pisces negative traits.”
Reflecting on the negative traits of your astrological sign, focus on the following question: What is the best quartz crystal to work on the negative traits of my astrological sign?
Take in three deep nasal inhalations and three deep nasal exhalations and choose a crystal “without mind” from the crystal screen.
I suggest you do this practice for at least three months.
I’m curious about your experience. Don’t forget to share it with me down in the comments.
