November 2013 ~ GemStone: Shiva Lingam

Shiva Lingam

Pronunciation: [ˈshi-və, ˈshēˈliŋ-gəm]

Color: grey or tannish stones with reddish stripes, rings and swirls

Appearance: egg shaped

Source: Narmada River in Onkar Mandhata, western India


Shiva Lingam

The elongated egg-shape of the Shiva Lingam is actually regarded as symbolic of the phallus of the Hindu god Shiva. In temples it is often paired with a corresponding object symbolizing the female, or the yoni. Yet within its own form, the Shiva Lingam symbolizes both the male and female, as well as the cosmic egg out of which all creation is said to have emerged.

Legend has it that the goddess Parvati fashioned a Shiva Lingam from a fistful of sand at Kanchipuram and there worshiped Shiva. This specimen is known as the Prithvilingam, symbolizing the primordial element Earth. Some of the Shiva Lingams in Hindu temples are called swayambus, denoting that they appeared on their own, untouched by tools or human hands. Shiva Lingams symbolize the primeval energy of the Creator. Hindu devotees believe that at the end of creation, at the time of the great deluge, all the various aspects of God find a resting place in the Lingam- Brahma is absorbed upon the right, Vishnu on the left and Gayatri in the heart. The Shiva Lingam is also said to be a dipiction of the infinite Cosmic Column of Fire.

Metaphysical Healing Properties of Shiva Lingam

Keywords: Kundalini activation, vitality and prana, spiritual transformation and rebirth, enlightenment, oneness with all.

Shiva Lingams resonate deeply with the energies of the Earth, yet they also carry strong energies of Water, Wind, and even Fire. In fact, the fire energy of these stones is so strong that they are capable of activating kundalini energies and charging the entire Chakra System. For those who feel they need a boost of vitality and prana energies, meditating or sleeping with a Shiva Lingam is highly recommended.

Esoteric legends (and now even some scientists) suggest that there is a field of invisible knowledge- similar in some ways to the idea of the collective unconscious- in which the stored psychic energy of human ritual and belief may reside. When one does something that makes a connection to some portion of this field of consciousness, one can tap into the energy of all the past consciousness that has contributed to it. Thus, when one works with a sacred object like the Shiva Lingam, one can receive the benefit of the collective efforts of all those who have used such stones in spiritual pursuits throughout history. Since the Shiva Lingam has been an object of devotion to the Divine and a tailsman of enlightenment for many centuries, one can connect with the energy of all this through working with these stones in the here and now. This is especially true because the stones themselves are composed primarily of microscopic Quartz. Through crystal resonance, and Shiva Lingam can connect energetically to all others throughout the world, in all places and times. It is little wonder that they are such potent spiritual talismans.

Shiva Lingams are emblems of inner transformation, partaking of the Storm element in order to break up patterns of self-limiting habits and beliefs, so one may be flooded with Spirit. Like Shiva, they destroy what is old and corrupt to clear the way for rebirth. Those who wish for such transformation will find in them a fierce and ready ally.

GemStone Healing Combinations

Shiva Lingams harmonize with all forms of Quartz. For spiritual transformation, they have a special affinity with Moldavite.

Healing Properties of Shiva Lingam

The energies of the stones resonate with the Storm element. They amplify the electromagnetic field of the body and stimulate the meridians. Both energetically and metaphysically, Shiva Lingams represent the healing of polarities and the unifying force of creation. The total energetic effect of the stone is one of union and the activation of the sacred kundalini energy that rises up the spine, activating the chakras and bringing enlightenment.


Shiva Lingams remind us that perceived opposites are simply different energetic expressions of the whole. Beyond ‘male’ and ‘female’,’light’ and ‘dark’, ‘good’ and ‘evil’, there us an underlining unifying force. Shiva Lingams aid in uniting all sides of the self and lovingly accepting the differences in others as expressions of the many faces of the one Creator.


Shiva Lingams can assist in overcoming judgement, separation and the need to be ‘individual’ or apart. The word ‘apart’ means separate, yet it is composed of the words ‘a part’, which indicates wholeness. Shiva Lingams help us feel unity, even in situations of apparent separation.


Shiva Lingams stimulate the body’s energetic systems, supporting general healing on all levels. They can be used to treat impotence, infertility and other sexual or reproductive imbalances. Their highest use, however, is for strengthening and balancing the entire body.


I give myself to the Divine- with complete trust and utter devotion I ask to be remade and enlightened.

Chthonic Goddesses

Chthonic Goddesses dwelled in the Earth and ruled the Underworld. These potent goddesses of magic and mystery knew the feminine secrets of the eternal round. When these initiatory goddesses appear, a transforming experience is inevitable.



We encounter Hecate when the paths of our lives converge and we are uncertain which direction to follow. She shepherds the way with her canine companions and lights the path with her torch. Knowing the wisdom of cycles, and their triune phases of birth, death and rebirth, the lunar goddess also represents women’s menstrual cycles and life transitions. She appears on the threshold of change as women enter new phases of their lives. During a transition, Hecate encourages you to neither look back to the past nor rush forward into the future. Petition her wisdom to relieve the anxiety, insecurity and uncertainty that accompany change.

Feminine Wisdom

Create rituals to help you navigate feelings of confusion, loss and disconnection at crossroads and to manage the transition.

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries

The lunar eclipse occurs on Friday, October 18, 2013 at 4:37pm PDT/ 7:37pm EDT/ 11:37 pm GMT.  It can be seen in Europe, Africa and the Americas.


 We have officially entered Eclipse season and are moving toward two upcoming eclipses (10.18 & 11.3). The theme of balance continues as we are feeling pressure to take action in those places where we are out of balance to bring those aspects of our lives into right relation. Action is being called for yet we must practice mindfulness.

Because the Earth blocks the Sun’s light during a lunar eclipse, we see the Moon directly.  A lunar eclipse stirs up the emotional body, bringing up what our patriarchal-shaped egos have repressed or forgotten, making us aware of our hidden motivations.  Usually we hide from fear, so confront your fears and look at your real motivations for doing what you do. Their effect can last between six months and two years. They herald major endings and beginnings in the area where they occur in your natal birth chart

A lunar eclipse can bring up the Shadow; we can act it out unconsciously or recognize and integrate it into our conscious personality and act accordingly.

This full moon phase will be highly active on the emotional level. The Sun in Libra and the Moon in Aries urge each person to find harmony between individuality and collaboration.  You will learn a lot about yourself through relating with others now, especially about unresolved emotions that appear during this phase.

This eclipse comes to remind us that who we are is written nowhere but in our own hearts, and it is there we will discover it. As with the last several Full Moons, important transformations helping us see a deeper Mystery are evoked by this Lunation. This calls us to a greater empathy and ability to know shared feelings, and continues to educate us in an emotional understanding.

The Aries eclipse compels you to take action. You may feel highly motivated and ready to blaze a new trail.

Everyone will go through important releases of energy, people, and elements that would prevent them from being the spiritual potential they hold in the depths of their Being. This is a threshold, and some people cannot go through it with us, nor can we cross their threshold with them. So let go and unveil yourself with focus and compassion.

Hold on lightly not tightly is the Aries eclipse message. Maintaining a light attachment to relationships, situations and outcomes proves wise.  Hang loose, don’t make any rash decisions. Go with the flow and be patient. Take your time with important matters.

Mars shows that we will be able to count on our ‘invisible helpers’ when it seems all else fails, and that these experiences will show us hidden powers in our Being. Regardless of the crisis, we will have major angelic (Devic) help at our disposal.

Things will be very unique in how they unfold over the next few months, and we will see a lot with new eyes, new understanding, and new skills. Much will be released, so stay focused on your Spiritual Brothers and Sisters and deepen your connection with them.

Embrace change. Be the change agent for your life. Change can feel painful at times. When you take the lead change will feel easier. Do what is right for you.

We are creating the New Earth together with our thoughts, words and deeds. The choices we make today determine our tomorrow. Therefore, it is recommended to see where you can take few steps towards practicing the quality of courage, confidence and using your personal power with compassion and wisdom.

The potential:  A feeling greater sense of courage, confidence and ability to take charge or initiative to take care of personal needs and well-being. From a Soul-level perspective, one is able to take action with assertiveness, compassion and wisdom guiding the way.

Flower Essences


If you have a very strong sense that it’s not the best time to take action and yet you feel a compulsion to do so anyway, consider Impatiens flower essence. It may help to stem a sense of urgency that is not truly related to the situation at hand but rather to the rushing energetic that could seem pervasive at this time.

Scarlet Monkeyflower

If you find yourself feeling piqued because of injustices but feel that you don’t have the right to express your anger, consider Scarlet Monkeyflower. It can help you connect to and rightfully own the full range of your feelings, and therefore express them in a more conscious, holistic, and self-empowered way.

Tiger Lily Flower Essence

If you’re looking for support to transition from a solely go-it-alone strategy to one where you can clearly identify—and as importantly, allow—productive collaborations, consider Tiger Lily flower essence. It can encourage a shift from self-identified isolation to a receptivity towards participating in cooperative service with others.

10.4.13 — New Moon Cosmic Oracle

DesertStar New Moon Cosmic Oracle

— 10.4.13 —



The First Goddesses

In the beginning there was Chaos, the infinite void through which creation emerged. The most potent goddesses came forward to rule the world and reveal their legacy of ancient wisdom.



Gaia was the first to materialize through the gaping void of Chaos. As the mother of creation, she gave birth to the heavens, the mountains, and the sea. When Gaia is chosen, the individual is in the custody of the Great Mother, protected and nurtured by the natural world and its seasons. On an oracular level, the arrival of Gaia signals a season to experience the world in a new and plentiful way. In this period of formation and creativity, Gaia indicates that you have ample resources. By attuning to the natural world, you will hear her prophecy and prosperity.

Feminine Wisdom

Life renews itself through Gaia who knows the mysteries of life, death and rebirth. Through her we are reborn into a fertile and abundant world.

New Moon in Libra


The Libra New Moon is a potent New Moon.  In fact, this could be the most powerful New Moon of 2013.

Leading up to the New Moon in Libra, there may be a build up of pressure, tension and even fears wanting to be released so there is free and clear energetic space for something new to emerge.

These potent energies are changing you to the core of your being- things that you may have thought were reliable and dependable end. For a cycle you may feel adrift, in transition. Then new doors open and new chapters begin.  You are ushered into a new phase of life

Release and let go of what is not working and/or serving you

Transformation occurs as you release situations and relationships that no longer serve your life purpose. Become who you truly are, rather than who you think you are supposed to be. This is the true meaning of transformation.

The winds of change are blowing. These are intense times. Resistance creates struggle. Instead, pivot into a new direction.

There is wonderful potential under the New Moon in Libra for healing and building concentration on maintaining your standards. Value yourself enough to hold steady to your intention. Also, notice there may be new levels of clarity and opportunity to express your individuality in relationships.  It is possible new relationships enter your world if you are willing and open.

The Scales of Libra are all about balance.

Be true to yourself! The Scale is always in movement, striving to create that one perfect moment of balance. So ride the wind with wings outspread: balance yourself and you can create that balance with anyone else.

As we embrace our own darkness, we become whole. We acknowledge the truth of who we are, which will help us see the truth of others.

This New Moon speaks to us of a gap to be filled, a possibility as yet unrealized and a connection in our lives which could benefit greatly from discovering this missing piece. It is most likely a connection with someone else, but all relationships begin with ourselves, and it may just be our inner relationship which is in need of the greatest adjustment.

 Healing yourself brings healing and restores peace in any relationship past, present and future or personal or professional.

Scleranthus Flower Essence

During this very diplomatic of times, there’s often a stronger sense that we need to make the “right decision.” And yet that pursuit oftentimes leads to indecision with excess weighing and measuring of options oftentimes leading to wavering and a sense of stasis. If you need assistance fostering a sense of inner resolve that can have you confidently and consciously make choices that feel right to you, consider Scleranthus flower essence. (Flower essences are made from flower-infused water and work energetically to restore emotional and mental balance. You can find them in natural food stores or holistic pharmacies.)

 Adorn your Dining

Libra inspires a reverence for all things graceful, a desire for aesthetic fulfillment, with beauty nurturing a sense of peace within. Taking this into consideration as you create your mealtime can transform it into an occasion that is more soulfully nourishing. Make each meal a special event by easily dressing it up by using candles, placemats, and cloth napkins. If you have fine china and/or silverware you reserve for that every-now-and-then holiday, use it more frequently during this time. Adorning your dining can be a way of adorning your lifestyle, and in turn adorning your sense of well-being.

Flower Essences

Flower Essences are an energetic and vibrational form of plant medicine that works primarily on the emotional, spiritual and energetic bodies. They can affect us on a physical level by helping us shift emotional and spiritual blocks/obstacles to physical healing and change. Essences are a safe form of plant spirit medicine that do not interact with other herbs, medications, supplements and most other modalities and may be utilized in conjunction with other healing modalities.  Unlike essential oils (which often have the scent of the flower), Flower Essences are dilutions of the energetic imprint of a flower/plant into the crystalline and imprintable structure of water. DesertStar Flower Essences are prepared with wildcrafted flowers, spring water and brandy. Flower Essence Therapy complements but is not meant as a substitute for medical or psychological diagnosis or treatment.
