Awaken Your Kundalini
Pluto in Retrograde;25th April-4th October: Pluto retrograde in Capricorn
Pluto is all about death and rebirth, endings and new beginnings, and transformation at any cost. Though you can ignore your dark side most of the time, this retrograde period forces you to look at yourself in your entirety – that means the good, the bad, and the ugly are all visible.
Lots of changes come with Pluto retrograde, and you can either adapt or be dragged through that change kicking and screaming, but it’s coming and now is an especially good time to go with the flow. Embrace change, embrace your flaws and wounds, analyze your motivations and methods, and move forward.
Embrace darkness as the flip side of life, work on changing bad habits for the right reasons, look inward and do some soul searching,
Don’t gossip or get into any secret or underhanded deals – it’s likely these secrets could bubble to the surface once Pluto goes direct, ignore any tendencies for cruelty, anger or malice as these might surface extra hard now, fight against change and transformation.
Pluto retrograde is a time or working with and embracing the darkness that exists in all of us. These stones all have protective and grounding energy, and will help you maintain composure in the face of change or even tackle it with confidence and strength.

Kyanite inspires loyalty and fair treatment to others. It assists in working through disagreements and disputes, and can aid in repairing damaged relationships. It is beneficial in negotiations, diplomatic missions, arbitration and other forms of communication between disharmonious people, allowing disparate energies to move into resonance and find a common frequency.
In the workplace, Kyanite promotes good communication, bridging the gap between different beliefs and ideas, and encourages self-expression and speaking one's truth. Hold or wear Kyanite when addressing a group, or leading a seminar or team meeting. It sharpens communication skills, and is particularly helpful when answering questions or when there is a need to improvise.
For those who have lost their way in life, or are trying to break a cycle of self-destructive behavior, use Kyanite for empowerment.
Kyanite's frequency encourages the examination of all aspects of oneself, the various interests, skills and knowledge that creates the uniqueness of one's identity, and how it can be used for one's Soul path on Earth and in finding a life-fulfilling vocation. It encourages listening to intuitive guidance and living with integrity of purpose.
It dispels illusion, anger, and frustration, and increases logical, linear thought. It grounds spiritual energy, linking to the higher mind, bringing integrity and maturation. Kyanite is also helpful for those making the transition through death.
SNOWFLAKE OBSIDIAN; Snowflake Obsidian has white splotches across the black surface color. It has the crown chakra (white) working with the root chakra (black). For a person who is out of harmony or imbalanced for a variety of reasons, wearing Snowflake Obsidian can help bring them back into balance to a degree. Pluto is the energy of transformation. And Obsidian falls into this category because it helps us see as well as perceive into ourselves. When we can consciously relate to the weakness and wounds we carry–and want to do something positive about healing ourselves, there is no better gemstone than Obsidian to help us do exactly that. It truly is a Plutonian stone because it takes no prisoners. It looks with an unflinching “eye” at ourselves. It won’t lie to you. It bares the truth of who and what we are–and where we’re at in our own soul educational path toward higher spiritual evolvement.
Ruled by Pluto, this is truly a stone of transformation because it can REFLECT who and what and where we are as a human being. This is a gemstone for those who are ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work on improving their spirituality. This is not for the faint-of-heart. Because it is glass, we will not only have the ability to look INTO ourselves to see what is weak and strong, but also to look OUTWARD to perceive others. This is a vital component in knowing who is attracted to you and why. Obsidian gives the person another set of “cosmic eyes,” to look more deeply into the people they are surrounded by. And if you don’t like what you’re REALLY seeing, just remember, it is REFLECTION of you! And if you are one of these people who is willing to make the internal changes and thereby, change your outer reality, Obsidian is just the gemstone to help you do this.
Pluto, when it is active in our chart, demands that we transform–or else. It doesn’t take “no” for an answer. This is were Obsidian can be our strongest ally because it can turn into a Strength Stone and allow us to connect into our cache of soul strength to help us get through this gauntlet of testing and initiation in one piece.
Sometimes, in an incarnation, we’ve taken on a severe and terribly wounding trauma. Perhaps one has been raped or incested. Or lived through a war torn country as a child. Trauma is defined by the individual. The permanency of the wound, however, is deep and can cause a spirit in this incarnation to move into a severe out-of-harmony/balance, as a result of the inflicted trauma. To strive to get back to your center of harmony means you are consciously or unconsciously tackling the Trauma. And sometimes, the trauma happened so early to us, we have no conscious memory of it. This is where Obsidian can aid us. It can REFLECT via dreams. And the dream state, in my opinion, is the best possible way to work through a trauma. Obsidian reflects. It is a window into our trauma, our woundings, our past, and can bring it forward to the light of day and our consciousness in order to heal it.
Most of all, Pluto “cuts through” the dross of our stuckness and opens the wound to allow all the purulent and toxic material (our negative emotions) ooze out so the wound can cleanse and then close it. Obsidian is that cosmic “knife” that can cut through our fear of change and open up the wound so that the toxicity can drain out of us instead of poisoning us to the point of taking on a chronic dis-ease. Pluto “cuts us free,” like a ship that has been moored too long and needs to ‘sail.’ Pluto cuts the rotten, toxic foundation we’re standing on and releases it so that we can build a new, more sturdy and healthy foundation the next time around.
If you are in a situation where you want more INsight into your self and OUTER SIGHT into people you’re having to deal with, wear Obsidian. Further, it can raise a red flag when you are threatened. Act upon that intuition that it is mirroring back into yourself. Careers such as psychiatry, psychology, physician, healer, shamanism, police work, prison guard or any other job where “reading” a person is vital, Obsidian can work very well.
One of the areas Obsidian works in is the realm of metaphysics. Getting “hit” by a sorcerer can be avoided because the person’s alertness for “what is out of place” will be front and center. Knowing when a trap is laid by a sorcerer for a shaman is vital, and wearing Obsidian can help the shaman spot the entrapment. If a ‘spear’ or ‘hook’ of energy is sent to you by anyone, it can be DEFLECTED and REFLECTED back to the sender. This is a very important gemstone necklace for anyone who is doing energy work of any kind. Whether laying on of hands, polarity therapy, Reikie, shamanic or others energy careers, Obsidian is there to stand between you and the other individual. Most people are not sorcerers, but because they are out of balance energy wise and needy, they can stick an energy hook into one of your chakras and drain you anyway. Obsidian won’t let that happen. The energy bounces harmlessly off your aura and goes right back to the sender.
OBSIDIAN;Obsidian is perhaps the ideal stone to keep near you during a Pluto transit. Its deep, reflective surface represents its ability to show us what's really in front of us — the truth of any situation - and during this retrograde, we'll want to summon the courage to face everything that's in the shadows. Obsidian is also highly protective against negative energy and dark, depressive moods, which we could be prone to during the coming months.
Black Obsidian soaks up negative energy like a sponge. This can help lift you out of the fog so to speak. Allowing you to experience the positive energies as the negative ones filter out.
A strongly protective stone, it forms a shield against negativity. It blocks psychic attack and absorbs negative energies from the environment. Obsidian draws out mental stress and tension. It stimulates growth on all levels, urging exploration of the unknown and opening new horizons.
Obsidian is a talisman of those who dare to see…the past, the future, or one’s own inner demons and darkest truths. Ruled by the planet Pluto, Black Obsidian is a teacher stone and could be deemed the “Warrior of Truth.” It is the most powerful of the Obsidians and does not cater to the ego; rather it exposes darkened areas of the subconscious to force one to face one’s true self. It assists in examining unresolved issues and harmful attitudes inhibiting one’s personal and spiritual growth. Black Obsidian works quickly and can be overwhelming as it rushes negative emotions and difficult truths to the surface to be experienced and released. It should only be used if one is educated on its power and prepared to withstand the process in order to achieve deep healing. It is best used under the guidance of a qualified therapist or healer, and other, gentler forms of Obsidian may be used for this process. Black Obsidian also carries the inherent frequency of protection, sealing the aura and removing energetic attachments, hooks and cords, as well as eliminating negative energies within the self and one’s environment. This protective shield enables one to go back into past lives for healing and to work on ancestral and family lines.
It is an excellent talisman for self-control, reversing previous misuse of power, and addressing power issues on all levels.Obsidian is best known for providing insight into the emotional causes of physical disease. It is thought to relieve stress, ease tension in the muscles, and improve circulation and artery health. It accelerates the healing of wounds, bruises and sprains, and assists with pain relief. Verbal and physical abuse, sudden trauma, grief, even events beyond one’s control can create destructive thoughts and unconscious patterns that inhibit one’s personal and spiritual growth. It is the basis for eating disorders and addictions, fear and insecurities, depression, aggression, and other mechanisms that hold one to the past in order to survive. Obsidian exposes these wounds, and when one is ready to accept responsibility for one’s own healing, reveals the actions needed to release them. It enables one to accept who they are with compassion and to move forward.
Obsidian brings clarity to the mind, discharging confusion and constricting beliefs, and encourages exploration of the unknown. Obsidian helps to protect us from toxic energy thrown off by others. It prevents emotional draining by others. It lends support to us when there’s a lot of stress and pressure. It can aid in regeneration after a long battle with a dis-ease or condition. For gentle, sensitive individuals who are too open and too trusting, this energy protect them from being worn down by the stress.
TOURMALINE; Pluto is the primary ruler of this stone with Uranus as a secondary ruler. Because it is piezoelectric and piroelectric, Uranus comes into play. Uranus rules electricity and electromagnetic activity on all four levels of our existence. And due to the massive ability of Black Tourmaline to transform and TRANSMUTE energy like a huge power station, this falls under Pluto’s domain. Few stones actually transmute energy and when they do, Pluto comes into play–big time.
Any time there is a transit or progression of Pluto in the person’s natal chart, they may be involved in a “bullying” issue. Or, their self esteem is getting cut to ribbons by a clique or a group of children/teens or adults. Or, the person is facing a test of their faith, their world is tilting and changing, can use this stone. There is a group of people who have the need to experience sorcery and usually, they are the ones who are ‘hooked’ energetically by such a person. Psychic attack occurs under this framework. Black Tourmaline can stop the attack cold and dissolve a sorcerer’s hook into any chakra within minutes of the necklace being worn. As well as send it back to him and her.
When transiting or progressed Saturn or Pluto create stress for you in an office where you don’t get along with coworkers, a demanding and unfair boss, or if you’re in a public relations or people job, Black Tourmaline gets the energy rebalanced so there is a fair give-and-take. And it will, over time, get the person or people out of your space–permanently. The old saying of “what goes around, comes around,” applies to Black Tourmaline. If a person has it in for you, they’ll be getting back exactly what they put out.
Black Tourmaline (Schrol) is the top dawg of all the guard dog stones when it comes to being psychically attacked. A Guard Dog Stone is one that can protect you either physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually. They ‘guard’ you energetically. It might be from physical danger, such as when a person is a firefighter, in the military during a war, or as a police person. Or if you have a dangerous kind of job such as construction. Where there is danger, you should be wearing Black Tourmaline
Danger is perceived differently by us as individuals. There could be someone next door that you don’t trust. Or you have someone at work who stresses you out (usually the boss or a coworker). Or there’s an office gossip that is trying to make you look bad to your boss. There’s a hundred different ways that we all wish we had a guard who could protect us in times when we feel vulnerable and unable to completely defend ourselves. And this is where a Guard Dog stone can be worn in necklace form to help support you.
Some stones can do one or two levels of protection, but rarely are able to handle situations on all four levels that may arise. The physical, emotional, mental and spiritual are the four levels. For example, obsidian material (obsidian, mahogany obsidian, snowflake obsidian and apache tears) REFLECT back energy that is coming your way. Obsidian is glass and all glass reflects. Agate, Jasper, Jade, Turquoise, Malachite will ABSORB the hit coming your way, which is why it will change color (grows pale) over time if you are being attacked on any level. Topaz guards on the mental level only. Amber and Amethyst guards only on the physical level. There’s only one that can deal with any type of heavy energy on all four levels and that is Black Tourmaline.
Many people report that by wearing a black tourmaline necklace that they feel an energy pick up. Sometimes these people are hanging out of their body (space cadet syndrome) and the gem anchors them solidly back into their physical form. There’s always more energy if you’re locked into your body energetically rather than hanging out of it, instead. And, people who are exhausted, tired, or are adrenal exhausted can find help above, but also will feel a bump up of energy by wearing Black Tourmaline.
A person with any illness can wear the necklace because of Black Tourmaline’s ability to transmute negative/heavy energy. Over time it can actually help the person work through the dis-ease in a positive way.
