This page was getting too large so I split it up into three sections. The astrological events are on this page below where I discuss Mercury in Retrograde, Lion's Gate, Sextile, Christmas Star, equinoxes and solstices. Crystals for the sun and moon now have their own designated pages.

The Christmas Star and Winter Solstice

December 21, 2020 was referred to as the Christmas Star or the Star of Bethlehem. Many of us were driving around for hours trying to capture pictures of this historical event. Of course it was cloudy by me on this evening. I finally saw it on the following evening and that was the best picture I could take. This event held heightened astronomical, astrological, and spiritual significance. Simply stated, Jupiter and Saturn were in grand conjunction (close together) which happens about every 20 years. However, this was the closest alignment these two have had in hundreds of years. It was a meeting or collision of opposing energies of Jupiter and Saturn. This event also occured during the Winter Solstice. In the video below, I discuss crystals for the Christmas Star and the Winter Solstice.


The Lion's Gate Portal 8/8

The Lion's Gate portal is open from July 28th until August 12th and is said to peak on August 8 (8/8). During the Lion's gate, the sun is in Leo and links up with the star Sirius. The energies during this activation are transformative and the ultimate opportunity for manifestation. This is also a great time for enhanced psychic abilities and spiritual communication. This is some "Siriusly" high vibe energy folks. Don't let this pass you by.



Take some time for yourself to delve into a deep meditation and also set crystal clear intentions. For manifestation, I'd recommend my usual manifestation crystals such as Garnet, Citrine, Jade, Pyrite, Lodestone, Sunstone, Green Aventurine, Clear Quartz and Black Tourmaline. Visit my manifestation page for more crystal recommendations and information.

To ride the enhanced psychic abilities wave, grab your favorite psychic stone. My all time favorite is Labradorite. I also find Celesite, Angelite, Lapis Lazuli, Auralite (and other Amethyst varieties), Spirit Quartz, Lemurian Quartz, Danburite, Herkimer Diamond, Selenite, and Apophyllite to be helpful in opening up those spiritual gifts. There are many others that are great as well. View my crystals for psychic abilities page to learn more.


Check out this Lion's Gate Crystal grid I created in 2015. This crystal grid is shaped liked the infinity symbol and includes: Clear Quartz, Jade, Green Aventurine, Garnet, Citrine, Black Tourmaline and Pyrite. Hear me roar!


Sextile Crystal Grid

The Sextile is a rare planetary event where certain planets are aligned in a way that they form the Star of David shape which represents the meeting of Heaven and Earth. It's a time for manifestation and growth. Crystals in this grid include: Amethyst (Neptune), Smokey Quartz (Pluto), Hematite (Saturn), Rose Quartz (Venus), Citrine (Jupiter) Selenite (moon), Clear Quartz channeler in the center for Earth, and Quartz points.

Summer Solstice Crystal Grid

The Summer Solstice occurs on the first day of Summer. It is the longest day of the year with more light than dark! It's a great time to honor growth, abundance and light. It is a celebration of life and success. The crystals in this grid include: Citrine, Clear Quartz, Garnet, Red Quartz, Tangerine Quartz, Orange Elestial Quartz, Topaz, Carnelian, Sunstone, and Pyrite.


Spring Equinox Crystal Grids

The Spring Equinox is the first day of Spring where the light and dark are balanced. It's a time of re-birth and coming out of hibernation. It represents the balance of the masculine and feminine, yin/yang, waking up and also letting go. It is a great time for planting seeds and watching them grow. This Spring Equinox crystal grid includes: Green Aventurine, Citrine, Flourite octahedrons, Snowflake Obsidian, Sunstone, Jade, Carnelian, Pyrite, Tree Agate, Moss Agate, Clear Quartz, Lodestone, Tourmalated Quartz, Selenite Eggs, and Rhyolite.
The Spring Equinox Crystal Grid on the right includes:

I plant the seeds and watch them grow.
