On June 6, we will be privileged to experience a rare astrological event – the Transit of Venus. The transits happen in pairs – and this is the final event in the current pairing, the last being in June 2004. We won’t see another transit in our lifetime as the next ones will occur in December 2117 and December 2125
We also have a full moon right now. So this is a magical time for working with these energies of the Sun, Moon and Venus to help us with our own transformation and growth.
Over the next forty-eight hours we have an opportunity to charge up any of the crystals (including pearls) that we wear, or use in our healing, energy or meditation practices. All we need to do is place our stones and jewellery in a place where they will receive a full 24 hour cycle of natural light. You could do this by placing them on a window sill, or out in the garden. Crystals that might not like rain or moisture can be placed inside plastic, or in a glass jar or bottle (my preferred option) if you’re taking them outside. For best results, let your stones come in contact with the earth (this can also be achieved by placing them in a pot-plant).

Creating a Devotional Crystal
If you would like to make intentional use of these astrological energies, you can use a quartz-based crystal, chosen specifically for this purpose. The crystals will absorb the energetic qualities of the Sun, Moon and Venus, and will be powerful transformational tools for your journey.
They will assist with:
- bringing fears and negative thoughts and behaviours to the surface where they can be cleared and healed
- identifying areas where you can support yourself financially using your gifts and talents
- improving communication and co-operation between our heads and hearts
- encouraging cycles of growth, expansion and abundance
- facilitating breakthroughs that bring clarity, clear direction and drive towards positive action
- heart opening
- spiritual and psychic opening and awareness
- forgiveness and emotional freedom
Suitable crystals will include:
- any form of clear quartz; including Tibetan quartz, rutilated or tourmalinated quartz, and herkimer diamonds
- Smoky quartz
- Milky Quartz
- Rose quartz
- Tigers Eye
This can be a crystal you wear, or one you hold or have in your space. You can also charge up more than one, so that you have a few to work with and choose from.
You’ll need to create a simple crystal grid. You can learn how to do that here.
Choose four stones to act as the anchoring points for your grid. Create the energetic space with the four stones, visualising a pyramid of light above and below the stones. Say a simple prayer to bless the sacred space.
Now place any jewellery or crystals within the grid like this:
Once you are happy with the placement of crystals and other items, say the following words:
I honour the Moon, the Sun and the Spheres. I invite the vibration of these Celestial Bodies to Bless and Energise my offerings. I open myself to wisdom, healing and Light. I open myself to my Path, and welcome the opportunity to be of service. I am ready to be all that I came to this life to be.
Leave the grid in place for a full twenty-four hours, including the daylight hours of June 6, for the Transit of Venus. You could leave this grid in place for longer if you desire, but after forty-eight hours there will be no additional effect.
♥ Embrace this beautiful energy we are living in. We have chosen this lifetime for ourselves. Live from your heart, and open to being all that you came here to be. It’s time! ♥
