Crystals and Astrology

Do you ever associate crystals with particular people in your life? When I do, it gives me a deeper personal connection with the crystal, and makes me curious to see if that crystal is reflected in their natal chart.

If my mom were a crystal she’d be a rose quartz. She was unconditional love. 💗Everyone that met her felt it and loved her.

In astrology, Venus is human love. Neptune is the higher octave of Venus and is unconditional love. Rose quartz is often associated with Venus, and Mom had Venus at a karmic degree conjunct her north node (life’s purpose) and both made a trine to Neptune. Mom was rose quartz.

rose quartz, smoky quartz, clear quartz

If my dad were a crystal he’d be a smoky quartz. 🖤 He had a horrific childhood, and it’s stunning to me that he was able to be the man he was given the life he had growing up. Though Dad had his inner demons and flaws, he embodied transmuting and moving on from pain and negativity.

In astrology, Pluto is our capacity for transformation. It’s our ability to perceive we have a choice, and to align ourselves with divine will. Dad had strong Pluto aspects and his sun was at a karmic degree in Scorpio. Dad was smoky quartz.

When you dig into every metaphysical tool, you find overlap between all of them. Funny how that oracle card you keep pulling lines up with an astrology transit touching your natal chart or a crystal you just had to have. It’s all connected, different languages saying the same thing.

My fluency happens to be in astrology. When clients ask me about what crystals they need, I talk with them about intention and what kinds of lessons and opportunities seem most important to them now and then send them to my favorite crystal sellers.

There are so many amazing options. Something like 2000 or so different minerals have been discovered, and then there’s raw, polished, carved, clusters, and we’re often drawn to particular ones during different times in our lives. So, I suggest they ask the seller for recommendations based on what we discussed. Even more importantly, when you’re looking at shop listings or you’re in a live sale, go with what gives you that ping! The ping knows.

Is there a crystal that you feel expresses either your essence or someone you know? Tell me about it.

nodes

Karmic Nodes

The lunar nodes, also called karmic nodes, are two specific points of the moon’s path as it revolves around the earth. They are designated as north and south and are always exactly opposite each other. Symbolically this is perfect, since one represents prior experiences and one is the goal of this life. Only by doing something that is the opposite of what you’ve been doing over and over again, will you generate new growth in this life.

The south node is a treasure trove of karmic experience. It shows experiences you’ve had and strong beliefs you have built thru those experiences. It can show both strengths and vulnerabilities, talents, successes, struggles, and triumphs. The south node can be something you rely on and fall back on in this life.

The north node is directly opposite the south and shows the goal of this life. It shows your primary purpose for being here. It’s not just a singular lesson, but a thread of purpose that weaves all thru your life and will show up through many other life lessons. The north node calls you to move beyond the comfort zone of experiences of the south node and take on new challenges in this life.

The houses the nodes are in will give insight into the primary areas of life experience in which the nodes are most expressive for you. The signs give insight into their styles of expression. Aspects to the nodes show how your energies tap into your karmic past and work to move you towards this life’s purpose. 

Transits are the current location of the planets. Looking at how transits aspect your nodes helps you to see how outside energies (outside of you) effect and support your goals, as well as bring up your past.
