ARKITEKT

Hexagonal - structured Crystals

Hexagonal is self-determination

In Astrology this shown by the Conjunction

and Opposition of planets and transits.

 

In Homeopathy this is the Cancer miasm with strong-willed remedies like aurum, arsenium and staphysagria, which also 'fail' disasterously.

 

In Psychology the typical 'Alpha male'  personality

Hexagonal crystal personality type

They are self-sufficient, self-confident and self-centred. They are people born with the 'tools of the trade', they can do the job themselves - so all they require are followers and admirers.

 

Self-confidence is great - however, the captain of the ship is alone.  If you never need to ask for help - you may never receive any.  And your admirers are rarely of your calibre!  You push on confidently  to finish projects, then become ill on their completion - with no one around to captain the ship.

An inability to listen to others stifles organic growth and creative thinking.  You rigidly believe that what is good for you is good for everybody else.  You cannot see that innovation thrives on difference.

 

It's like a successful 'start up' company which only sells one product - good as this product is, the company never diversifies to enable it to survive.  As time goes by you fail to evolve, and so you begin to copy.

The result of all this is . . .

Moh's hardness scale for rocks and crystals

The hardness or softness of a rock/mineral is rated on the Moh scale from 1 to 10.  1 being very soft and 10 very hard.  Ten specific minerals and gemstones define this scale, and feature in the puemonic: 'The Geologist Can Find An Ordinary Quartz (that) Tourists Call Diamond'.

 

Thus: 1 Talc,  2 Gypsum, 3 Calcite,  4 Fluorite,  5 Apatite,  6 Orthoclase Feldspar, 7 Quartz,  8 Topaz,  9 Corundum (ruby, sapphire) 10 Diamond

Astro-homeopathy analagy to the Moh scale.

Simplifying the Moh hardness/softness scale to -

1 - slight but often,  4 - moderate and alternating

7 - strong and forceful, 10 - intense, profound, consumed

Molybdenite

Mohs 1 - 1.5

Molybdenite is a very soft crystal, easily dented by a thumb nail.

Finding your "creative, resourceful and spiritual" crystals.

Knowing you need an hexagonal crystal structure use the Mohs hardness scale to direct you to a specific crystal. If more one crystal is that hard, refer to the chakra colour of your "block" ie. sacral chakra - orange.
