Welcome to Judith's Crystal Cave Teachings, my virtual home.
Here is where I share my thoughts on spirituality, life, humor, Crystals, and various topics I hope people will find interesting. We are far more than we know. We all have magic within us, waiting to be tapped into. I want to support that awakening, that recognition of what we are: Eternal souls on a journey through space and time, here to evolve, learn, and grow. All that I've learned from the teachers in my life, the elders, the animals, the stones, the trees, the elements, the stars, and all that I am, is shared here, in this space. My training in Classical Chinese Medicine, ( and Taoism ), including the Stones, 5-Element theory, Essential Oils, and herbs, Astrology, and my insights as a Clairvoyant Empath are all shared here. With empathy, love, and my bizarre sense of humor, I am honored to share my perspectives on this Earth walk with you.
One of the great loves in my life has always been nature, especially what native people call "The Stone People". I have been working with, and teaching about Crystals and Minerals for most of my life. All of the indigenous cultures around the world describe the stones as the oldest living beings on the planet. The Taoists consider them to be the most powerful healing modality that there is. Part of the reason I started my website was to introduce these Master Healers to people unfamiliar with them, since most people have limited access to a Taoist Master or a native elder. Most books available today focus on either the metaphysical properties of stones, or the mineralogical make-up of the stones. I wanted to offer material that is ancient, from my decades of study, along with my direct experiences, dreams, and visions with the stones as an Alchemist, Clairvoyant Empath and Mystic.
My home is filled with a Shaman's tools, drums, rattles, feathers, art, Stones, Essential Oils, Herbs, Sage, Sweetgrass, tobacco for ceremony... All of these things combine together to create an energy that is healing for all who enter, and to challenge the trance-like state western culture creates in us, which inhibits and blocks us from achieving our true potential. This part of my website is designed to do that, to challenge that trance state, offering a different perspective on life that includes magic, and an opportunity to explore other dimensions and realities.
My actual home in real life is very unusual, a geodesic dome and subterranean home built into the side of a hill, with 35 tons of Calcite boulders that create the ceiling. A true Crystal Cave, unique and magical. I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. I wanted to have, and make available for my clients, an environment for people to experience the Earth as it truly is, from an Indigenous culture perspective: Powerful, nurturing, magical, and Sacred. I want to invite people to embark on a journey into the mystical, the supernatural, where all living things are connected as one heart. And I want to include laughter, because laughter brings us into the moment more quickly than anything except love. So expect some snippets of my life that hopefully will make you smile.
Come on a journey with me.
I hope that all of you had a wonderful day. Knowing how to love, and how to nurture others is the purest magic that there is. Magic lives in the heart. It’s that simple. If you want to fill your life with magic and miracles, live from love. Blessings, Judith

May is a lovely month, vibrating to Taurus, a Fixed Earth sign of the zodiac. The symbol for Taurus is the Bull, representing courage, tenacity, and fixity of purpose. The truth is, you can’t get a Taurus to do anything that they don’t want to do. Don’t waste your breath. Taurus ♉️ is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, creativity, charm, and beauty. It’s flower or essential oil is the rose or jasmine. The stones would be Rose Quartz, Angelite, Blue Chalcedony, or Mangano Calcite. Softness is the key.
This month is interesting, with 5/3 having the Moon moving into Taurus, preparing for the New Moon on 5/4. On the 3rd, the Moon conjuncts both Mercury and Uranus. Since Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury, this brings an opportunity to access the higher consciousness, the Third Eye and Crown Chakras. It’s a perfect time for intention work, especially since with the Taurus ♉️ energy, it has longevity. I would extend that across the third, fourth, and fifth. All excellent. Since Taurus represents the Earth Element, which is about what nurtures or nourishes us in Chinese Medicine, take some time to nurture your soul on this New Moon.
The 7th is intense, with aspects to Neptune and Jupiter reminding us not to overextend. 5/8 is fabulous, again, extremely high vibe. The Heart Chakra, Third Eye, and Crown Chakra are activated, bringing a higher vision, and a capacity to grow through grace. 5/9 continues that, but adds Pluto and Saturn into the mix, so be ready to release anything that does not grow your soul. It’s a time of shedding. Sometimes, that’s a good thing. People don’t grow like railroad tracks, at the same rate of speed. Free Will allows people to grow, or not grow. Avoiding codependency and enmeshment is important.
5/12 is Mother’s Day. The Moon in Virgo ♍️ is making several magical aspects. It’s a wonderful day to access the Divine Feminine energy of the universe, that Kwan Yin energy, the goddess of mercy and compassion. We are all Yin and Yang. This is a day to celebrate the Yin energy of the universe, receiving. Affirm that you are, in every moment, receiving all of the love, joy, beauty, and blessings that the universe has for you.
5/18 is the Full Moon, with the Sun 🌞 in Taurus ♉️, opposing the Moon 🌚 in Scorpio. ♏️. Excellent, excellent, excellent day. It’s a powerful manifesting day. Grab onto the energy of this one, and get ready to break through old patterns. Rock this, it’s amazing.
5/22 is very powerful, with the Moon 🌚 in Capricorn ♑️ conjunct to Pluto and Saturn again. Any change is possible.
This month is rich with astrological possibilities. It’s a month of renewal, gentle healing, being nurtured, and replenished. May it bring you all of the love and joy you deserve. Blessings, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine
It’s really interesting being a psychic in western culture. I love J.K. Rowling’s creation of the Harry Potter world, including the word “ Muggle” to describe non-magical people. I’m a hereditary psychic, my grandmother was very gifted, so my gifts were nothing new for my family. My mother said I was describing my teacher to her almost as soon as I could talk. I started doing medical intuitive readings, along with hands on healing, in my early teens. This was not only accepted, it was a normal thing. I did healing work for my mother, my father ( after his heart attack), a brother, my ex-husband….. my being a psychic has just been a fact of life for as long as I can remember.
Every psychic has different gifts. Some are telepathic. Some are precognitive. Some see auras. I’m a Full Trance Medium, and Clairvoyant Empath. I can see and speak to the dead, spirit guides, my own and other people’s, and empathically feel someone else’s emotions in my own body. My ex loved my work, and at one point asked me to do free psychic readings at our restaurant on Monday nights, when business was slow. I’m also a professional Astrologer, where I do horoscopes.
I find Muggle types pretty amusing, from a distance. They usually don’t find me, because our worlds don’t readily intersect. Occasionally, I’ll encounter one. The conversation goes something like this: Muggle: “ What do you do?” Me: “ I’m an Astrologer “. Muggle “ Do you really believe in that stuff?” Me:” No. I just really enjoy defrauding people.” Muggle: Blinks repeatedly.
They don’t even realize how insulting a question like that is. It’s like talking to someone raised in a cult. All they know is what their available senses tell them. I say available senses intentionally. I got a kick out of that movie, The Sixth Sense, where the kid whispers to Bruce Willis, I see dead people. I was laughing. Thinking, and that’s unusual because, why? We all have the ability to experience so much more of the universe, if we allowed ourselves to. But most people rely on the most obvious senses. How limiting.
Being a psychic means we are aware of, and can fluidly move through, time, space, and dimensions. It’s a Quantum universe, with limitless possibilities. Magic is everywhere. We are aware of the sentience of all living things. We can communicate with anything with a soul: dogs, cats, trees, horses, stones, the earth… anything. I’ve been an animal communicator for most of my life, also. I love how they respond to me when I connect with them, they feel so relieved to be understood. Doesn’t everyone?
It is rare for me to have a negative experience in my life with a Muggle, since people like that don’t seek out psychics. Why would they? Trying to explain what I’m doing or seeing is like trying to explain a sunrise to someone who has been blind from birth. Whenever I’ve attempted it, it has not gone well. I prefer not to have dealings with them in my personal life. What would we talk about? The weather? We really have nothing in common. I live from magic, they live from Earth Plane reality. I deal with the supernatural, they don’t believe in anything they can’t see or touch.
I don’t think less of Muggles. Every soul is where it is in its evolution. All souls are loved, as children of god. I’m not here to make other people uncomfortable, though, and in the end, that’s what happens. And to restore their own sense of comfortability, they’re going to have to attack the cosmic reality I’m representing. Which means they are going to attack me, devalue me, or try to invalidate my position. It’s a lose-lose for everyone involved. I’m not interested in participating in that game. I’m actually relieved when it’s made clear to me what the operating paradigm is.
I love what I do. I always have, and always will. I’m blessed to have daughters who live from magic, a husband who does, and who love me and what I do. A Taoist Master that I consider to be family, and that I’ve been blessed to study with, and share my insights with for 23 years. Native elders who work with me. Dear friends who share this magical journey with me, and accept me for who I am. One dear friend just made his transition last week. He was also a gifted psychic. We laughed, we had a deep love for each other. Aaron, I will miss you every day, my brother. Thank you for almost 30 years of love. I know I’ll be seeing you in my dreams. And for the Muggles out there, the universe is vaster, and far more magical than you know. May this bless all who read it. And to all the Empaths and psychics out there who feel hurt or rejected by Muggles: Don’t. It’s fine. It’s not about you. Really. Blessings, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine
