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.
This is a pivotal moment in our nations history. What we stand for, what we teach our children, is what’s at stake. Some say that impeaching a corrupt president is a bad move, politically. That, since he isn’t going to be removed by the Senate, why bother. Here’s why. What matters in life is honor, integrity, courage, and compassion. The moment that we decide that forsaking those we have pledged to help is okay, we have left our path. The moment that we accept lying and political corruption as the norm, we have left our path.
What matters is what we want to believe in. What we want our children to believe in. Cynicism is an indulgence that we cannot afford. No matter how exhausting the fight is, a warrior continues on. When you fight for the innocent, for the defenseless, a warrior continues on. Our path is clear. When history records this time, those who choose fear, denial, and apathy will share the same shame as Germany did, during the time of Hitler. To close one’s eyes to evil is to enable evil. Whatever the outcome will be, what matters on a soul level for each of us is that we chose to stand up in the face of the profane.
How do we define victory? For me, it’s knowing that I did all that I could, in a fearless way, to save everything, the children, the environment, Earth Mother, to keep going. I have to be able to look myself in the eye and respect my choices. Staying on my path, no matter how challenging, is what matters in the end. Never give up. We are an army of light beings. Writers, teachers, healers, we are all that stands in the way of a scourge. Let history record that we showed others what it means to have honor. That we lit the way, our hearts a beacon, a torch illuminating a sacred path. Do not entertain doubts or fears. Press on, knowing that the light always prevails. That’s what matters. Living from that. Blessings, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine
December is a beautiful month. Sagittarius is the sign that covers most of December. It is a Fire sign, ruled by Jupiter, the key words are “ I Perceive “. December starts out with some lovely aspects, 12/3 has the Moon in Pisces, forming a sextile to Jupiter, Uranus, and Venus, plus making a trine to Mars. Wow. Opportunity abounds. This is a great day to be assertive and go after what you want. Yes, yes, yes. 12/4 is also good.
12/7 can access some old wounds. Ignore them. Negative self talk, old doubts, fears, and insecurities may surface. Claim dominion over your mind. Focus on something that inspires you, and move on.
12/8 and 12/9 are very good, with the Moon in earthy Taurus, conjunct to Uranus, ( new beginnings), then trine to Venus, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn. Wait, what? This is fabulous. Manifest like crazy. Focus your intention. Pull in what’s yours.
The Full Moon on 12/12 inclines us to spread ourselves too thin, overextending. Don’t. The Moon moves into Cancer on 12/13, a very high vibe day. Raise your consciousness, vision, meditate, dream. On 12/14, banish the fear cooties again. Unexpected blessings arrive on 12/17. Yes.
The Winter Solstice is on 12/21, as the Sun moves into Capricorn. It’s a very sacred day. Visualize what you want to create. Step into magic. Become your true self. 12/22 is also fabulous. The Ursids meteor showers occur.
12/26 is powerful, with the New Moon in Capricorn bringing optimism, faith, and hope. 12/27 is another wonderful day. It’s a day of focused intensity. Expansiveness. Strength. Growth. Grab it, and hold on. It’s completely magical.
December is offering new possibilities. Say yes. Let yourself believe in all things beautiful: Love, Joy, compassion, abundance. It’s a very special time. Be the gift that the world needs so badly right now. Happy holidays to all. Sending you love. Reverend Judith Star-Medicine
I’m sorry I’m so late getting this up, work has been insane. So, better late than never. The Sun is moving through Scorpio for most of the month, my favorite sign of the zodiac. The key words for Scorpio are “ I Create”. It is a Fixed Water sign, with the symbols of the Eagle, the Scorpion, and the Phoenix.
The Full Moon on 11/12 is a powerful one, with the Sun in Scorpio opposition to the Moon in Taurus. That Taurus Moon makes some beautiful aspects, trining Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, which is empowering, grounding, and fearless, all at the same time. It also makes a lovely aspect to Neptune, adding the mystical component. 11/13 is very good, with the Sun sextile to Pluto, the alchemist, and Mercury trine to Neptune, the visionary. The truth shall be revealed.
I expect the 14th to be a little rocky for anyone trying to cover anything up. Both Venus and the Moon square Neptune. Spin doctoring does not work here. But, some people never learn. 11/15 and 11/16 are good, as the Moon moves into nurturing Cancer.
11/19 is a powerhouse day, Mars moves into Scorpio, and the Moon makes a number of good aspects, including a trine to Jupiter, the planet of optimism and protection. The 20th is also good, with Mercury finally going direct. 11/21is a mixed bag, some very good aspects, but the temptation to overextend. Try not to.
The Sun enters Sagittarius on 11/22. 11/24 brings some unexpected changes. Try to view change in a positive way. It’s always a little unsettling, I know. 11/25 is beautiful. Love, and feeling like things can last. The New Moon in Sagittarius is on 11/26. The Fire signs bring joy, zeal, enthusiasm, and a zest for life.
Thanksgiving, on 11/28 is fucking fabulous. Six beautiful aspects make this a day for blessings, intention work, exciting changes, and limitless possibilities. 11/29 is also very good.
Wishing you all a beautiful month. Sending love to all. Blessings, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine
