Change and Transformation
By Joshua Ramage
During life, humans are endowed with the prerogative to change. As the universe ebbs and flows, moving forward in a vibratory motion; so does our mind, body, and soul. To stop change is an illusion. To lean into change is to experience synchrony. We cannot resist change, because life continues to evolve. We could fight change by trying to swim against the current, but for every ounce of energy we expedite, we are pushed backwards with the current. We lose sight of the future. There is a saying, “Do not look too far ahead and forget where you are Now.” The only way to experience synchrony is in the Now. As rivers fork, bend, curve, narrow, widen, plummet, and rise; our body’s chemistry does the same as well.
We are in November and in the zodiacal sign Scorpio for the majority of the month. Scorpio is ruled by the 8th house which deals with transformation, death/rebirth, inheritance, occult, and legal work. Scorpio’s saying is ‘I Create’. They have the ability to rise and fall quicker than any other sign. Scorpios can be very intuitive and have the ability to endure more than any other sign. Often, they may have healing abilities, if they can get past the want to ‘get even’ and love thy enemies. It takes Scorpios a long time to blow up. Love is the only channel through which we can release, forgive, and receive healing.
November is the 11th month of the year. Numerically, 11 is a master number. 11 is the number of illumination and enlightenment. 11 is a very creative and spiritual vibration. People with this number in their numerical chart have great faith. They have the ability to inspire countless people, and will be pushed into the spotlight whether they want to be or not. This can cause nervous energy and much restlessness, pushing them into the more reclusive vibration of a 2.
Strength is the 8th major arcana in the tarot deck which shows we are using our faith or our ego to confront change.
The main theme of this article is that if we stay centered in love, humanity conquers death. In life, we will be pushed into unforeseen circumstances. When we begin to experience abundance in our life, it is as though something attempts to knock us down. Humanity was born in the image of God and each one of us is a fractal reflection of the whole. Change is ultimately good, change occurs so we have the privilege of ascending higher consciously. It does not mean we have to be perfect all the time, but we are meant to learn our lessons and move forward. We do this by involution, then by evolution. We change ourselves, and consequently, we have greater ability to change our circumstances.

Malachite is the stone of transformation. It stimulates our minds to see the beauty in everything. It helps us to accept change and learn how to let go of past issues. It allows the true ‘I am’ to rise within us; so we can learn to adapt to our environments and stay centered. Malachite primarily works with the heart chakra, it is also an emotional healer. With Azurite ‘Stone of Heaven’, we can potentially receive healing and bliss when using the stones together in meditation. Malachite will bring up impurities and azurite will change them into purities. Malachite reminds us that we are co-creators in the Universe. It increases our confidence in accomplishing our dreams. Bloodstone is associated with Scorpio and is great for physical healing as well.
