The Monthly Forecast For June

Rumi

The Sun is in Gemini for much of June. Gemini is a Mutable Air sign, ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. This month looks to be filled with changes and conflicting information and messages, so let’s see if we can sort some of that out.

June 1st is very good, with the Moon in Libra, the sign of justice, making two positive trine aspects, to the Sun in Gemini, and to Venus, also in Gemini. With the country in turmoil now, with protests in response to the rampant racism,  violence and killings of Black people by police, Monday brings a brief period of respite. I say brief, because of the aspects on Tuesday, 6/2. Before the Moon leaves Libra and moves into Scorpio around noon Eastern time, it makes three different square aspects. First, it squares Pluto. Then Jupiter. Then Saturn. This is a day old wounds surface, old fears get triggered. On a personal level, be kind to yourself. Be compassionate. Understand that some of what you’re seeing playing out on the news may be activating old trauma. From the cosmic point of view, watching the Race Mind ( Collective Consciousness) reacting to both the pandemic and to the country’s history of racism and persecution of minorities is deeply distressing. This will test many of our relationships. Some may not survive, and that may be a good thing. One of the many powerful teachings of Taoist Master Dr Jeffrey Yuen, was given in a class in 2000, where he was talking about why healers burn out. He was saying that often, we want the healing for people more than they want it for themselves. He said that the most important thing, for healing to take place, is honesty. Accountability. Self-reflection, and a willingness to change. That, without those things, the EVOLUTION OF THE SOUL IS NOT POSSIBLE. He said that if someone is lying to themselves, or is in denial, it prevents healing or growth. So, unless this country is going to be honest with itself about its brutal history of genocide, slavery, and racism, these deep, festering wounds will have no possibility of healing. Its evolution is only possible through radical honesty, and a deep commitment to change.

There will be a very powerful Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon on Friday, 6/5. The Sun in Gemini will be in opposition to the Moon in Sagittarius. This is not a good day to sign contracts or make important changes. Given that the current occupant of the White House is a Gemini, is terribly mentally ill, and appears to be struggling with advancing dementia, among other things, this Full Moon could potentially be very destabilizing for him. I’m not sure how much longer he’s going to be able to continue.

June 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th are much better. Breathe. Rest. Thursday, 6/11, the Sun squares to Neptune, creating confusion. That passes quickly, and 6/12 and 6/13 are lovely, with some very uplifting aspects.

Mercury turns retrograde on 6/18. Ugh. We know what that means. The Sun moves into Cancer on 6/20,  the Summer Solstice, heralding the beginning of summer. It’s followed by the second Eclipse of the month, a Solar Eclipse, a New Moon, on 6/21. This looks to be very positive, and brings with it the possibilities of new beginnings. A good day to set your intentions for what you need, based on reflections of what you’ve released over the past several months.

On 6/23, Neptune goes retrograde for 5 months. This is excellent, because Neptune rules illusions and confusion. Denial. Looking at life through rose colored glasses. For the next 5 months, it becomes easier to get to the truth. Since that takes us through the election, I certainly hope so.

Mars moves into fiery Aries on 6/27, this brings passion and power to creating the reality that you want. The month ends with the Moon in Scorpio, making several good aspects. June is going to be an intense month, without a doubt, with two powerful Eclipses, among other things. Personally, I’m praying for a shift in the Race Mind, so that all of our brothers and sisters can be treated with the same dignity and respect that white people so often take for granted. We are all relations, as the Lakota say. It’s time that we live from that. Blessings, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine

 

They’re Here!


 

 

 

 

Wow! They’re finally here! These huge Bolivian Amethyst Clusters were so worth the wait. From the Anahai Mine in Bolivia, these are from old stock. This type of Amethyst is very difficult to get, especially this size. The color is grape jelly purple. I’m so blown away by these, I’m basically speechless. They have the Ametrine Points that Bolivian Amethyst is known for. Just incredible. Feeling blessed.

Teachings From Classical Chinese Medicine and My Experiences With Possession and Exorcisms

I have been blessed and privileged in my life to have studied and worked with a renowned Taoist Master, Dr. Yuen, for twenty three years. Dr Yuen teaches Classical Chinese Medicine, which is ancient. It is rooted in Taoism, going back thousands of years.( Traditional Chinese Medicine is from post-Communist China, only about 65 years old). The two are very different, with TCM having been westernized by the Communist regimes, with all of the Taoist teachings removed, all spiritual references stripped away. While all Chinese medicine is powerful, Classical Chinese medicine is far more so. Its approach is that all healing begins with the healing of the Spirit.

My first class with Master Yuen was in 1996. It was an introduction to herbal medicine. I began studying Chinese medicine in 1994, and had already become certified in a type of acupressure, which incorporates Ericsonian hypnotherapy, Reichian techniques based on the teachings of Wilhelm Reich, and other tools to facilitate somatic release. I fell in love with Chinese medicine, and wanted to go further. At that time, Dr Yuen was the Dean of Oriental Medicine at the Swedish Institute in NYC. I had heard about him, and was eager to study with him.

As a Clairvoyant Empath and Medium, and Druid priestess, I’ve always been able to see spirits of all kinds, the dead, ghosts, the souls of all living things. Animals, trees, stones, Nature Spirits, the Elementals, Guides and Teachers, all of it a part of my life from earliest childhood. I started doing Medical Intuitive readings when I was very young. Since I am a hereditary psychic, no one in my family was surprised. Rather, it was expected. The other thing I’ve always been able to see are demonic entities. That gives me enormous compassion for the people who are involuntarily hosting one. What I love about Classical Chinese Medicine and other traditions is that they encompass all of these things. It’s incredibly shamanic, similar in many ways to indigenous culture teachings, which have been a part of my path for most of my life. ( Since I am sensitive to Native people and their history of genocide, land theft, and cultural appropriation, I avoid the New Age Movement’s use of certain titles, like “Shaman.”  My techniques are my own, developed in childhood and throughout my life by the guidance of a Master Teacher, and trainings and memories from previous incarnations that were always accessible to me.)

The first class that Dr Yuen taught on possession that I attended was in 2000. He taught another one in 2002, and another in 2006. It was an enormous relief for me to be sitting in a classroom with 70 people, listening to Dr Yuen teaching about the different levels of possession, the types of entities, and their effect on people, physically and spiritually. Hearing a world famous teacher speaking so matter of factly about things most people know nothing about, was a gift. Other cultures have protocols for dealing with entities, but not ours. Taoism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Native cultures, all deal with this subject.

One of my biggest issues with the New Age Movement is the removal of indigenous culture teachings around possession, because they see it as “negative.” That’s unfortunate. It leaves people in the dark about what’s happening to them, and provides no tools for healing. Classical Chinese medicine provides the necessary tools to help people reclaim their own divinity. Their own Divine Blueprint that  their soul came in with. Acupuncture, using ancient Point combinations, Exorcism, Stones, Essential Oils, and spiritual practices help restore the individual to their true state.

During a conversation with Dr Yuen, where we were discussing possession and the after-effects of an exorcism, he was explaining how an entity “ forces the soul to have traumatic life experiences that were never a part of its curriculum or Karma “. I cried. I’ve seen it over and over in my practice. Denying the reality of the supernatural changes nothing. These things exist whether people believe in them or not. Personally, I find it incredible that people don’t believe that entities are real, after all, they’re all through the Bible. The word “evil “ is mentioned in the Bible 613 times. Jesus performed numerous exorcisms. The Hindu deity Durga is seen as the fierce protector, and banisher of demons. The Karana Mudra in Buddhism is said to “ Banish demons and Quell evil”. But western culture denies the existence of all of it. Perfect.

Over the past year alone, I have performed about 34 exorcisms. As I’ve said, I was taught how to do this and other types of protection work, including binding the entity away from someone, when I was young. I understand that it’s not for everyone. All Healers have their own gifts, their own magic. For whatever reason, this is very familiar and comfortable for me. My Sacred Space is set up for this. I am supported and protected. I live in a Crystal Cave with 35 tons of Calcite boulders in the ceiling. Seeing someone begin a new life, the life they were always meant to live, is so moving. I told Dr Yuen that I will do this for the rest of my life. He said, “ I believe that this is what you were born to do”. My answer? “ Well, we all know I wasn’t born to cook”.

People have asked me which Stones are good for protection. Some of the Stones that are powerful for protection are Obsidian, Labradorite, Smokey Quartz, Realgar, Cinnabar, and Rose Quartz, because Rose Quartz represents Divine Love. Divine Love is the ultimate alchemist, burning away anything not of the Light. Obsidian is my personal favorite. It deflects all negative energy. It vibrates to the planet Pluto, and is a bridge to the Void. I have it in the four directions in my office, and in my bedroom. I have all of the others there, as well.

I love my work. I am honored and grateful to be trusted by my clients in this way. One of my clients asked me, aren’t you afraid of entities? My answer was, why would I be, I was raised by one. I’m afraid of cooking utensils. Or the vacuum cleaner. And, recently, hoodies, since I accidentally zipped my hair into one. Ow.

As we watch the news, we see a level of darkness in the world that’s oppressive, yes. But remember that the Light always prevails. There are warriors of light everywhere, in every country, pushing back against racism, fear, misogyny, and hatred. We were sent here for this time, and this reason. We were trained for this battle over lifetimes. We are fierce. We are strong. We are love. We are anchored in the light. We will prevail. Release fear, and send light to Earth Mother and all creatures great and small. The darkness shall be returned to the nothingness from whence it came. I hope this teaching was helpful. If you would like me to expand upon it, let me know. I can always do that.  Blessings, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine

** Please note: I will not be writing about the techniques that  I use to perform an exorcism, out of an abundance of caution to protect both clients and practitioners. As we have seen in the recent past, with a New Age guru killing three people in a Sweat Lodge that he was in no way qualified to lead, and other people out there professing to be Healers, that are not, ego can be a dangerous  thing. Entities are cunning, and extensive training is necessary to remove them safely.
