The New Aquarius Birthrock

Filed in HOUSEWITCHERY

Shungite is the new Aquarius birthstone. But I prefer the term birthrock. And anyone with an Aquarius/Uranian, zeitgeist-trippy tone to their natal energies will vibe with it.

Saturn in Aquarius is imminent. December features a fantastic Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius, the first in centuries. It needs newness. Fuq it. We need newness. Shungite is the new crystal.

Here are its credentials.

It’s two billion years old, absorbs electrical + radiofrequency pathogens and comes from a region in Russia renowned for sorcery. More? Shungite contains an antioxidant named after Buckminster Fuller. And, it probably came from a meteorite or even a planet that featured a lot in Seventies conspiracy novels.

The New Aquarius Birthstone Is An Alien Rock

I was loving the chunk I got on my desk (to ward off the quantum fog of E.M.F.s all around me) but now I know more; I am making it my birthrock. Aquarius Rising counts.

Shungite comes from Karelia in Russia, which has its own unique variety of sorcery practiced by shamans called Tietajar. While they keep it quiet these days, they were apparently adept astral travellers and brilliant at dream interpretation. Their magical legacy connects to the Ireland of Yeats and runs through many bloodlines.

My new birthrock has all these powers, apparently, because of its main ingredient; a carbon molecule called Fullerine. Or, buckminsterfullerine. The scientists who discovered the substance named it after the visionary architect because its structure reminded them of Fuller’s geodesic domes. And, let’s be clear here, its general coolness. Buckminster Fuller was a Sun-Jupiter in Cancer trine Uranus. The Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in December will be on his Aquarius Midheaven.

Adept Astral Travellers And Brilliant At Dream Interpretation

We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims,” he said.

Finally, shungite could be from a meteor OR – for the full ancient aliens twist – a hypothetical planet called Phaeton. It evokes Worlds In Collision by Immanuel Velikovsky. He was a Gemini psychoanalyst, born a month before Buckminster Fuller, with his Mercury/Jupiter trine Uranus. I will not try to summarize the vast scope of his books (there are a string of them) here but he was an extrapolator par excellence, a whiz at pulling together Mesopotamian temple art and comet trajectories.

Publishers, freaked by the hostility of mainstream scientists and historians towards Velikovsky, kept cancelling on his book contract. Naturally, it became a best-seller. He talked about things that nobody was into at the time: puns in dream symbolism, pre-human races, Ancient Babylonian deities, global warming and his theory that humanity had repressed the collective memory of what occurred in the Dark Ages.

Velikovsky annoyed everyone; He said our planet was an electron, Saturn used to be our Sun, and that Ishtar was a man.

If he was here now, he’d appreciate shungites “maybe lightning strikes formed it, perhaps it is alien bedrock‘ feel.

Uranus is exactly on my natal Venus today and i had a dream of a wonderful Discovery of a new rock.

Love it! Especially if it can absorb EMF’s. I feel adversely affected by those. Also worried about 5G… I’m Aqua Sun and Mercury. I wonder if it can help me with my migraines. Never had headaches before about two years ago. They have been debilitating, sometimes lasting a whole week or more. I wonder if they are somewhat due to EMF’s, though I think it’s also peri-menopause, but that makes one more sensitive/susceptible to ‘stuff’, so… Also, glad to know Jupiter will be coming through Aquarius along with Saturn. I don’t know if I could take that Saturn transit to… Read more »

Look at the Medical Medium for headaches. He’s alternative and I’m glad I found him. My headaches are gone. Very pleased.

I resonate with Garnet. Y’all don’t know anyones true birth stone anyways.

Ok, maybe I’m a little…stoned but, I’m on board with this idea. Garnet never spoke to me. Let’s do it. Change is good.

Can I share an experience I had today? I got really hungry at about 5 p.m. so I decided to make some Mexican chicken chipotle and stuffed my face. I was so excited making it I spilt pineapple juice all over the floor. So then I’m madly started mopping the kitchen floor. I had so much energy. Thought I’ll lay my head down for a rest on my bed and it seems that one of my ancestors was speaking to me. “Why are you carrying on about crystals when you could be growing herbs” . And then I see roots… Read more »

No wonder I’ve got the munchies and my ancestors are speaking to me today. I just checked my Astro and the current cancer moon is conjunct my natal moon in cancer in the 4th house.

Interesting. A few weeks ago I was looking at this rock in a hippie shop.

Then this blog comes up.

But be careful there is a lot of fake shungite out there especially on eBay apparently.

I found this video on YouTube and it’s great. crystalhealingforwomen.com. Beware of fake shungite here is how to know if it is real.
And she’s a sweet, smart woman.

Could some smart cookie please download this video ,I don’t know how to.

Shungite is very protective. It is also used to purify water.

Even though I know about shungite my first thought reading this was: ahhh Tunguska.

Occasionally I forget about astrology and it’s influence on me. I’m obviously becoming more grounded and less dependent on finding reasons for things feeling a bit odd which is great in my particular case but ohhh thanks for the reminder this morning 🙏.
Spaced-out moods or vague, drifting paranoia, juxtaposed with surges of action and vim. 🙏
I’m obviously more Mercury ruled than I realised

I have several pieces – a tower that pairs with Selenite, a pyramid as a paper weight in front of my monitor, a beaded necklace and my favourite a chunk of noble shungite for my water bottle. Aqua rising, Taurus Sun stellium. Moldavite, Labradorite and Herkimers diamonds have to be up there as close favourites. and i was compelled, even called to purchase them.

Many of Velikovsky’s ideas are being explored by a new generation of researchers today. While he may have been a bit surreal in his interpretations of the evidence he was looking at, he wasn’t necessarily wrong that the evidence was there. I believe some of his theories tie into the Electric Universe theory that you wrote about last week. Certainly there are mainstream scientists looking into evidence that a huge comet hit the planet at the end of the last ice age (potentially wiping out a huge chunk of the human race that had been living in a higher level… Read more »

I want to know more about the connections between the shamans and the Irish please?
Sites or sources? Sounds intriguing.

This peaked my interest too. I’ve been obsessed by Russia since I was in my early teens and I have no idea why. Is it a Celtic connection??

I’ve become uncomfortable with using crystals and rocks to tap into particular energies over the years. They’re usually mined in pretty unethical, destructive ways. I understand that our impact on the planet is pretty damaging regardless of whether or not we buy crystals, but I don’t think it’s just to support an industry that has a pretty horrific track record, both environmentally and socially, in the pursuit of spiritual growth. We have such beautiful energies and talismans surrounding us locally. Why not connect with those instead? And if you do want to connect with the energies of a particular crystal… Read more »

That thinking is actually rather more Aquarian than a physical talisman imo.

I agree. Too much of everything these days and you certainly don’t ‘need’ a crystal or anything else for that matter to be spiritual.

I haven’t purchased new crystals for some time and unless it’s super compelling I won’t/don’t but I’m also not just going to dispose of the old friends I have. I either keep, gift or return to the earth as the mood takes me.

AlouettaMM Member

Yes, I love rocks and shiny things, but it’s getting harder to ignore the cost of them: mining the earth, potential human exploitation, transportation carbon emissions, etc. I will admire shungite from afar and imagine it talking to me through the earth’s core.
Also, I just went on a Buckminster Fuller bender and he’s well more exciting than a rock. What a dude!

Connecting to a crystal without actually having it physically, I think is THE most Aquarian thing one can think of. 🙂

Been using this for some years now but maybe with Chariklo/MC Aqua I’m on that future curve. I’ve got a few pieces and I just want to share some info that I read and have had some personal experience with – broadly I’d say it’s a healer and therefore yes, can have space clearing outcomes which can facilitate the body returning to it’s natural or desired state. Further to those last few words (and worthy of note) consider that the way it might ‘heal’ could be to bring about change to you and your environment. Some of this may feel… Read more »

Can you expand on awesome? Curious to learn from someone who’s done this fairly long term.

I find it really grounding. Not in a black tourmaline or smoky way but it’s as if I were being gently washed on the inside by a mud fairy and all the better for it. There is a clarity and lightness in this rock. I don’t find it mind expanding at all, just really practical.

Mine was gifted FTR. Not purchased

CentaurusMM Member
Centaurus

Ok, yeah I do get the grounding vibe and agree it doesn’tdoesn’t feel like either of those two. That kind of sounds like my experience with clay, not that I’ve been using it in recent times. Whether it was gifted or purchased is ok either way. We all don’t have to stop everything and never consume again but we are all becoming more aware of our contribution to the collective results of these things. I see that as a good thing but I also think that we all need to be mindful of passive styles of shaming or coercion to… Read more »

Hi Wizardora. I agree about the clarity and lightness with shungite. Very practical.

I love this! So intriguing!

FYI peridot occurs on earth and meteorites, hence it’s a fave…but dinosaur skeletons can also transform into opal–I love the thought of something rainbow, sparkly and jurassic…

I didn’t enjoy the vibe I felt from these and don’t have them, was just more of a mention as they have similar themes.

If you haven’t read “Buried Treasure” by Victoria Finlay, you should because you’d really enjoy it. She describes the surprising origins of various gems & stones and the sometimes harsh, sometimes quirky history of humans who’ve sought them.

Hey, I was perfectly fine with Amethyst, mang! But whatevs, I’ll take a big hunk of shungite too. I could deffo use the warding EMFs off by my bed. I still need to listen to stuff to go to sleep (which means audiobooks or spotify) but one Lenten detox element is no video streaming or surfing whilst in bed. That might help.

WOW alien bedrock rocks!!

Went to the Mind Body Spirit show with my Aquarian friend who bought a birthrock made from Dalmatian Jasper cause dogs ….

Almost all the Aquarians I know are BIG animal lovers/vegans who believe in BIG causes but also live it. Another Aqua friend experienced domestic violence. Then studied Social Work to help provide better advice and help than she received

Jinx! Aquarius rising here too..I feel so special! I’ve been drawn to shungite for the last year or so. The fact Alexander the G had baths carved out of it for its healing qualities was what lured me to this rock. I’ve got a little meteorite I call my pig stone cause it looks like a pigs head, I store with my shungite just cause it felt right. Note: I mistakenly bought some sugalite on line thinking it was shungite and it’s an amazing opaque purple rock that seems to take the hard edge out of jangley days. Off to… Read more »

I’ve always felt very Uranian, must be my Gem sun, and I relate to Mercury with his flying boots. I can overthink and my mind is quick and sometimes keeps me awake. I must admit I do have ‘crazy’ ideas sometimes as well. But I can’t see why in my chart… Uranus/Pluto conjunct in Virgo/5th, which is generational (I’m 55), squaring my moon and mercury in 2nd Toro and trine Venus in 3rd house cancer… Uranus also opposes my Saturn which is in 11th Pisces. An astrologer I consulted years ago commented that I was very Uranian based on the… Read more »

I purchased a few pieces of shungite that come with an adhesive sticker for the back of your phone. Tempted to find a few bigger chunks for my home and desk.
