Moldavite :: Transformations

Storm Element pg 251 Crystal Ally cards by Naisha Ahsian

A beautiful green tektite stone.

Foremost of transformational stones and it's effects are felt immediately in one's life.

Burns blockages in all chakras.

A strong stimulant to psychic sense and accelerates one's spiritual development and path.

It holds value as the legendary, 'emerald that fell from the sky', and believed to be the stone of the holy grail.

It is a merciless teacher and heralds a time of drastic growth and changes. People, things or life lessons that no longer serve you will drop away, clearing the path for the higher good to come.

This is not always an easy process, but if you are prepared to surrender to the Universal will, it can be a cathartic, cleansing and exciting time of spiritual unfolding.

It has immediate impact on those that attune to it's energies. It can cause heat flush, tingling, dizziness and even headaches. Use with caution. Should never be ingested for toxicity.

Due to it's effects on growth and movement in life, it can lead to changes in relationships, jobs, living environments, personal abilities, and manifestation abilities are enhanced.

This comes with deep personal transformation. Expect miracles.

It's going to be an exciting ride for the next few months. You may experience a 'falling away' of old relationships, jobs, securities, and situations. Anything that does not serve your ultimate path may go spinning off into space, leaving you transformed.

It's purgative effects can leave one feeling like you've been through the ringer, but it indicates change for the better. It creates a resonance with Universal understanding and creation (the colour reminds one of green nature, trees and plants and rainbows and also the heart chakra etc). Expect psychic or coincidental (synchronicity). It is time for you to begin the next phase of your spiritual learning.

Nxt let's look at the Storm element meaning of this Transformation card. The storm element is the most transformational of the ally cards. This force is the result of the synergistic combination of the energies of earth, fire, water and wind. When these elements combine, they create and energy that is more powerful than the sum of it's parts. A force which embodies the moment of creation and destruction, in one. It is the yin and yang combined (which could indicate the number 8). It's frequencies represent both the point of perfect balance, and the extremes of the polarities. It clears the air and drenches and renews the earth. Lightening charges the atmosphere with energy and refreshes the mind. It carries the energy of rebirth. When you are in a place of no movement in your life, it is as if you are experiencing a period of death. It creates a rebirth, in a new direction through which you can explore your life, once again. It is active on all levels - physical, mental and spiritual. It creates profound and drastic change throughout ones experiences. It tears down those aspects of ones life that are not stable and strong. It uproots those creations that no longer serve us and this enables new experiences and creations to take root. This element is useful when life is stagnant and there is a lack of movement or standstill. It is a-likened to Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, where you are sure to find yourself set down by the Storm in a new and unexpected place, full of growth, learning and renewal.

Ego based beliefs and ideas may be shattered. Old beliefs, we held dear, may become empty of meaning. We are gaining new levels of deeper understanding and growth. You are being called to stretch your arms to the sky and begin your initiation into the deeper mysteries of life.

The above meaning, is found on page 251, which in numerology adds up to 8.

The meaning of 8 derives its power as the number of wisdom on the soul plane.

It is also the centre of activity.

It is a number of enormous capacity for compassion and sympathetic tenderness for those in trouble.

There is harmony, as above and so below, and also of balance, power and abundance.

We see things clearly and are able to make decisions (if you use it as a pair of spectacles, which it can appear to be when place on it's side).

In the Bible, it represents new beginning, meaning a new order or creation and also there were 8 people on Noah's ark.

It is representative of when man's true 'born again' event, when he is resurrected from the dead into eternal life.

Pythagoras called it Ogdoad, meaning 'little holy number'. In China, it is homonym for prosperity and when pronounced it sounds like the word 'prosper'.

It is the number for Saturn who is the god of agriculture, founder of civilizations and of social order, and conformity. It is the ruling planet of Capricorn and traditionally Aquarius. Saturn takes 28-30 years to complete a full cycle. Because Saturn is a symbol of the wisdom which grows with age, its cycle is particularly important in reflecting our development. Every seven years, Saturn completes a a quarter of the cycle, and we move into a new stage of awareness. Saturn stands for the cause of destruction but then ultimate dissolution is also an aspect of the solar deity for its withdrawal of vital energy form the individual leads to dissolution or death. The planet of detours and delays. In traditional Chinese medicine the emphasis is on the blood and everything it nourishes, and on the process of transportation of material about the body. Saturn transits can be great opportunities for growth: it is the body and all its needs which are ready to move on. Unfortunately, Saturn also brings the probability of reduction of existing standards of life. The harder we cling to them, the harder we must work. No wonder Saturn is blamed for degeneration and loss of vital organs. But this occurs either when we grow old, or when we fail to observe Saturn's requirements, by abusing ourselves. In the ordinary way Saturn gives life not death.

In tarot, it is depicted as the Strength card meaning, other than the obvious, determination and confidence.

It is the atomic number for oxygen. An important element of respiration for basic survival. A reactive gas. It enables animals to live, makes fruit rot, and allows fires to burn.

It represents the infinity symbol, when placed on it's side.

Neptune is the 8th planet from the sun. God of the sea. Is the modern ruling planet of Pisces (this marries in well with the cups card in tarot). Its glyph is taken directly from Neptune's trident, symbolizing the curve of spirit being pierced by the cross of matter. In astrology, Neptune is considered a planet of inspiration, dreams, psychic receptivity, illusion, and confusion. Neptune rules spirituality, and all things subtle. On the up side, Neptune is associated with intuition and spiritual enlightenment. As well, it is a planet of mercy and compassion. The more negative manifestations of Neptune include deception, trickery, deceit, guilt, and addiction.

The 8th goal of the UN Millennium Development goals (2015) is: Develop a global partnership for development.

Odin, the chief Norse god, had an 8-legged horse called, Sleipnir, that could magically, gallop on land, water and through air.

The 8-pointed star is a symbol of the goddess Ishtar of Babylonia, who was called Inanna by the Sumerians, was the goddess of love and war (birth and death). She is the evening and morning star and the creator of widsom. She was the Queen of Earth & Heaven.

Two of Cups Rider Waite tarot deck

This card lends itself to the cups symbology in tarot (as seen in the picture of Moldavite), which is about our feelings and emotions. Also known as the goblet or chalice. It was a symbol of clergy and thus religion and spirituality. It has to do with the heart and love.

Cups also indicate the water signs of the zodiac: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

Since the picture depicts 2 cups, i decided to have a closer look at the meaning of the 2 of cups, for a deeper understanding of the message in this Crystal Ally card.

The card shows a man and a woman staring into each other's eyes, sharing their emotions by way of the cups. Wings and snakes form a Caduceus, and with the lion head present, the elements are similar to the Chimera and suggest danger or heroism in the transaction.

There is romance between them, a sexual attraction.

The Two of Cups shows power that is created when two come together.

This is the card that lovers want to see, and, in fact, the Two of Cups is the minor arcana equivalent of the Lovers in many ways.

The Two of Cups has a deeper meaning as well. Whenever two forces are drawn together, there is the potential for bonding.

This card can stand for the union of any two entities - people, groups, ideas, or talents.

In readings, the Two of Cups tells you to look for connections in your life, especially those that are one-on-one. Now is not the time to separate or stay apart. It is the time to join with another and work as a partnership. If you are in conflict, look for truce and the chance to forgive and be forgiven.

If you are struggling with two choices or tendencies within yourself, seek to reconcile them.

Usually, the Two of Cups is welcome in a reading, but it can also sound a note of warning. The energy of Two can be very compelling. They create between themselves a world of their own that can feel exclusionary to outsiders. "Two's company; three's a crowd." Make sure that the tendency to pair off is not creating disharmony in your situation.

Description: Partnerships and unions are represented by the Two of Cups. Much like the Lovers card in the Major Arcana, energies come together to create a mutual bond.

Beauty, power, and electric vibrations occur, bringing romance and sexual energy to the scene.

Platonic relationships also benefit from the Two of Cups.

This is the card that signifies reconciliation. Struggles come to an end, and harmony is restored to even the most hostile of relationships.

Inner conflicts also come into play when this card appears. An inner peace is created.

Expect to feel strongly connected to others, but also to other entities that bring two together like ideas or talents.

Reversed, this card indicates that pairing off to the exclusion of all other people and situations is happening. Take the time to bring balance into life by including other factors. Unhealthy relationships that consume all one's energy need to be examined, and a new course of action decided upon. (from Wiki)

Let's have a quick look at what's happening in the sky's and the cosmic influencers for the time of this card reading (April 2020):

* Jupiter and Pluto align and is about maintaining personal ethics, and acting correctly will guarantee the progress of the objectives, in the medium and long term. There is a great potential for transformation (internal and external), which you can channel in your professional path.

* The Mars – Uranus square (07/04/2020) occurs once a year, and is usually associated with serious contrast events, such as ruptures and rebellions. However, this type of event drives the subject to defend individuality, and recognize their capacity for entrepreneurship, in a crisis situation.

* The sun is moving into Taurus and the next new moon will be in this constellation where we will focus on creative potential, contact with nature, and acquisitions of material goods. Pragmatism. Common sense. Perseverance. Conservative values. Little flexibility. Possession criterion on people, and objects (without distinction). The focus is on creative potential, contact with nature, and acquisitions of material goods, especially real estate, jewelry and works of art.

* The beginning of the annual retrogradation of the planet of transformation (Pluto) in Capricorn (the sign of the goat) will impose the recognition of internal situations that remained hidden. Review of the professional changes promoted as a result of Pluto’s previous retrogradation in Capricorn (from April 24 to October 03, 2019), or understand their inevitability. The feelings that were hidden, will be recognized. There is a conflict between maintaining the old line of action or implementing new alternatives, whose main objective is to bring the subject closer to their true purpose/mission.

* On 27/04/2020 Mercury enters Taurus and attention directed towards the resolution of practical matters. Ease of concentration. Ability to plan. Methodical and inflexible thinking (unlikely to change your mind). Tenacity. Prudence. It takes time to establish conclusions and value judgments. Cultivate flexibility and avoid obsessions.

Then in conclusion we look at the word transformation and as the image in the Moldavite card indicates, a butterfly effect.
