There’s multiple things to consider when it comes to learning how to use gemstones. Some of these things apply to energetics in general, and some of these things are about how the energy of gemstones and crystals interface with you, your bio-energetics, and your specific energy-field.
Learning how to use gemstones is a process that includes research, exploration, creativity, and experimentation; in addition to, experiencing each gemstone for what it is, being open to receiving crystal energy, integrating crystal energy into our energy-flow, and maintaining awareness of our perceptions. There’s numerous ways to use gemstones, and each crystal or gemstone is linked to our experiences of health and healing benefits, if we are open to receiving, and if the crystals or gemstones are proximal to our body or energy-field. Setting intentions with each crystal or gemstone is useful for people who choose to do so, although it’s not mandatory.
It’s important to cleanse gemstones regularly by passing each stone through Sage smoke, or Santo Palo smoke for several seconds. Gemstones can also be cleansed by placing them on top of Sea Salt—in a bowl—for several hours; then, after removing the stones from the bowl to use, place the bowl of Sea Salt in the direct sunlight to cleanse the Sea Salt, so that it will be ready to cleanse the stones again.
As I gradually obtained crystals and gemstones, I started using them, researching them, experimenting with them, and experiencing as much as I could about them, so that I could better understand my energy, how to be in a better state-of-flow, and how to transform and heal energetics. One of the first situations I began using gemstones to learn how to heal from was maintenance insomnia. There were a number of years that I would awaken around 2:00am to 4:00am, and my sleep hours were from 11:00pm-6:00am at the time. I gradually put together and designed myself a crystalline healing bundle to place under my pillow, inside of the pillow case, and the vibrations of the gemstones together in synergy have beneficially positive affects/effects. Over time, my understanding has become better as I’ve entrained with the bundle; and, I have what it takes to create and manifest healing from insomnia. The duration of entrainment varies from person-to-person, and according to the energetic interface of each person with each gemstone. I manifested lasting results over about an 18 to 24 month period. I’m so grateful to be staying asleep from 10:00pm to 5:00am. Even though I now better understand how to sleep restfully, without waking up too soon, I continue using the crystalline healing bundle to keep myself mindful about healthy sleep and restfulness.
Diamond: Cubic Geometric Form
Eight different geometric forms are found to be amongst crystals and gemstones. Hexagonal stones are useful for energy balancing and exploring specific issues. Some Hexagonal gemstones are: Azeztulite, Apatite, Morganite, Clear Calcite, Quartz, Rutilated Quartz, Sugilite, Sapphire, Aquamarine, Dioptase, and Emerald. Cubic stones are useful for grounding, stabilizing, structure, and organization. Some Cubic gemstones are: Diamond, Fluorite, Sodalite, Lapis Lazuli, Afghanite, Garnet, and Spinel. Trigonal stones are useful for invigorating and protection. Some Trigonal gemstones are: Rose Quartz, Citrine, Ruby, Carnelian, Kambaba Jasper, Bloodstone, Amethyst, Dendritic Agate, Phenacite, Herkimer Diamond, Tiger’s Eye, Smoky Quartz, Stichtite, and Blue Lace Agate. Tetragonal stones are useful for absorbing and transforming energy, in addition to balancing and resolving. Two Tetragonal gemstones are Apophyllite and Zircon. Orthorhombic stones are useful for encompassing, cleansing, and clearing energy. Some Orthorhombic gemstones are: Imperial Topaz, Tanzanite, Danburite, Nuummite, Bronzite, Aragonite, Celestite, Iolite, Chrysocolla, and Peridot. Triclinic stones are useful for integrating opposites and exploring dimensions. Some Triclinic gemstones are: Labradorite, Kyanite, Larimar, Turquoise, Amazonite, and Sunstone. Monoclinic stones are useful for purification and perception. Some Monoclinic gemstones are: Lepidolite, Unakite, Jade, Selenite, Lilac Kunzite, Petalite, Serpentine, Charoite, and Howlite. Dodecahedron stones are rare, and are useful for stimulating Qi-flow and enhancing the effects of crystals. Rhodozite is one gemstone with Dodecahedron form. Some gemstones are Amorphous, and these crystals are without geometric form. Amorphous stones are catalysts, and useful for personal growth and development. Some Amorphous gemstones are: Shungite, Moldavite, Opal, and Amber. These nine groups show qualities that are considered when using different stones in different ways and for different reasons, or when using different specimens of one stone in different ways and for different reasons. Clearly, there’s much involved when it comes to learning how to use gemstones.
Designing crystalline healing bundles is a creative activity involving research, exploration, and experimentation. I take the time to design medicinal healing bundles for myself, and I design them through a process. After becoming acquainted and familiar with the energetics of different gemstones as they are, I feel ready. First, I reflect on my experiences with each stone. Second, I consider my energetics, innate disposition, and personality through an Astrological lens, which serves as a type of baseline. Astrological data provides substantial insights into strengths that can be leveraged, and challenges that can be overcome, healed, and/or resolved. Astrologically, I consider planets in Zodiac Signs, planets in Aspects, elemental connections amidst Natal Chart data, House data, and more Astrological chart information. Third, I consider different gemstones and various details about them, such as their: geometric forms, chemistry, chakra affiliations, Zodiac Sign affiliations, planetary association, elemental association, and specific benefits of each gemstone, which are based on compiled scientific research and qualitative experiences of numerous individuals. Fourth, I weigh all of these considerations with my understanding of my Self—distinct from that which I identify with—and my understanding of my life experiences. Finally, selections are then made accordingly. I modify some of my bundles as I grow, change, and attain different crystals and gemstones. My medicinal healing bundles are of such precise and tuned design that the particular combination of gemstones and crystals results in not only meliorated thoughts, emotions, and perceptions, but also a meliorated state-of-consciousness and higher frequency vibration. I place the bundle I’m using at a particular time into a pocket, or I hold the bundle during meditations. Astro-Gemology is astounding and subtly profound!

There are many transits happening continuously. Transit Readings are usefully focused on planetary cycles, in addition to signs, houses, aspects, or angles. Transit Readings are specific to you because they are based on your Birth Chart. Now is an opportune time to initiate insights, self-knowledge, and self-inquiry. Interpretations of some collective Astrology transits are included here.
Mercury Retrogrades seem to be about "re-" reviewing, revisiting, reflecting, reorganizing, rethinking, revising, re-etc... Do you feel it? re- is a prefix, occurring originally in loanwords from Latin, used with the meaning “again” or “again and again” to indicate repetition, or with the meaning “back” or “backward” to indicate withdrawal or backward motion. In July 2019, Mercury retrogrades in the Zodiac sign of Cancer, which is an incredibly perceptive and feeling oriented water energy. Individuals with Mercury in Cancer tend to be great listeners; and, many of them are perceiving so much at any given moment because they’re tuned in, and they’re receiving substantial downloads of sensation paired with information.
The outer planetary or Jovian transits are of profound significance for society and the collective. The details are useful for energy awareness and human wellness.
Uranus transits Taurus between 2018 and 2026. Uranus is a bit reserved in Taurus, although iconoclastic. Values of materialism will most likely be challenged and reformed. Systems of finance, banking, and markets will likely be suddenly transforming or unexpectedly changing. People will act to escape from money issues, many of which are linked to avarice and insatiable profiteering. Safety is an illusion. Stability meets change for reconciliation.
Neptune transits Pisces from 2011 to 2026. The veil is much thinner. Trust your intuition, hunches, thoughts, and feelings. Be mindful and caring of you for you; because you know your self better than you know anyone else. Energy work, Holistic Healing, Integrative Medicines, and Alternative Medicines are thriving. Fundamentalists and oligarchs are finding their selfs impeded; because, Neptunian energy supports the masses, the collective, and interconnectedness.
Pluto is now transiting Capricorn, and will continue to until 2023. There seems to be inclinations for power, confrontation, and transcendence, concerning thy self, as well as people. People are seeing that political power conflicts are beginning to reform social structures, as authority is being redistributed. A paradigm shift is coming.
Pluto transits Aquarius between 2023 and 2043. A paradigm shift is coming, and it’s about the interconnectedness of all things and non-things in the Universe. Global issues of human rights, cooperation, and sustainability will likely be illuminated, accepted, and addressed. The Aquarian alignment with intellect, genius, and innovation is likely to cause breakthroughs resulting in groundbreaking events, in Science and Medicine for the benefit of life, and Earth.
As the Age of Aquarius unfolds, the interconnectedness of life and holistic healing ought to flourish, along with innovation and sustainability. Natural and renewable energy, organic nutrition, purified water, and consciousness, will most likely gain prominence. The momentum of the Age of Aquarius will most likely increase during the transit of Pluto in Aquarius; particularly, it ought to be thoroughly felt or experienced when Uranus transiting Taurus trines Pluto transiting Capricorn, in the not so distant future.
Paradigm Shifts on Earth and humanity’s ‘ways of being’ are interconnected with "Ages" in Astrology, which are linked to the Precession of the Equinoxes, which is based on the tilt of Earth and placement of its Equator, and its projected Celestial Equator. The Vernal Equinox, which is a point where the Sun's path crosses the Celestial Equator, gradually moves into different zodiac constellations during the Precession of the Equinoxes, at a rate of about 1° every 72 years. As a result, the timing of seasons on Earth is shifting. In the northern hemisphere, the Spring Equinox is occurring near February 20, and the Fall Equinox is occurring near August 20. As cycles involving Earth continue to fluctuate, adaptability (and its corresponding human behaviors) will continue to become humanity’s method of operation, to ensure that life on Earth continues.
