The eighth month of the Chinese calendar is always ruled by Rooster qi. The rooster, especially the golden rooster, likes to be the center of attention and doesn’t hesitate to say what is on his mind. He is characterized by charm, flamboyance, punctuality, principled opinions, and dogmatic beliefs. Those who understand and support him are generously rewarded. Knowing we may be experiencing this type of energy, it is a good time to keep the ego in check. This month we can also expect to experience some choppy energies as the month and year – (the rooster and the rabbit) are in direct conflict. Thankfully, this chaos and volatility doesn’t happen often!
Listening to all the chatter about why blue objects didn’t burn during the Lahaina disaster – cars, umbrellas, pots etc, I remembered research I had done on the color cobalt blue years ago. and since there is a mystical relationship between between cobalt blue, the yearly water rabbit, and gold the color of this metal Rooster month, I decided to write about it’s magical properties again.
We know that Light is the source of all life and manifests in our three dimensional world as color, sound and shape. Color defines everything we see in visible creation. Our ancestors knew how to utilize the vibrational qualities of color to bring harmony and balance into their daily lives, since they were more aligned and receptive to nature than we are. They passed this color knowledge down from generation to generation, but most of this wisdom has been forgotten in modern times and we refer to it as folklore and don’t give it much credence.
“Cobalt blue” is a perfect example of this lost wisdom! In many cultures, it was treasured as a vibration that provided protection. For thousands of years, cobalt blue colored glass bottles were and still are used to protect valuable essences and medicines from harmful radiations.
We all know and have seen the evil eye talisman. It’s existence was first recorded by the Mesopotamians about 5,000 years ago and since then it has been used worldwide as an amulet to protect one from evil. There is a reason cobalt blue is the predominant color in the eye! Many Mediterranean people still paint their window frames and front door frames cobalt blue to protect their homes from outside evil forces.
Cobalt blue can range from the bright color we see on the medicinal bottles to a much deeper blue. Lapis Lazuli is the natural color of cobalt blue and is considered a protective paramagnetic stone. This means that it is easily magnetized. The same is true for the metal cobalt. ( They both are attracted to a magnet rather than repelled – they are pulled in.)
When we look at the occult books (occult meaning hidden secrets) of Theosophy, Alice Bailey, the Masons, etc. they use cobalt blue book covers. Although they say the covers symbolize the blue ray (which is magnetic), I think that it is also used to protect the wisdom between the covers and to make the books magnetically desirable – to pull people to them.
Rudolph Steiner who used Goethe’s universal theory of color (as opposed to the Newtonian linear theory) theorized there are only two colors in the universe – blue and yellow. Blue shines inwards, while yellow shines outwards. This inward motion indicates a protective mechanism.
The color that is exact opposite to cobalt blue on the color wheel is gold. The ancients knew that if you have two opposing concepts, balance (paradox) is created by a third. A triangle is created – the colors are not mixed, but synthesized. It is like the blue and gold are visible in space-time and the frequency that relates them is in timespace. One sees this color combination used extensively by the Masons, Self Realization Fellowship and many other spiritual paths. In ceremonial magic, magian use cobalt blue chalk to draw their seals or pentagrams to contain their summoned demons.
Now, how can you use this knowledge in your immediate environment? The dowsers have known about the protective properties of cobalt blue for eons and have developed different methods to utilize this ancient knowledge. For one thing, they discovered that it is really effective in blocking harmful earth radiations. You can use cobalt colored fabric, tape, paper etc. to do this.
Another practical use of this knowledge has been utilized to lessen the number of accidents at certain locations on freeways, streets and intersections. The dowsers first pinpoint places on maps where accidents frequently occur and then put cobalt colored paint, or tape across the street or highway to block the harmful energies at that location. The discordant energies of these locations seem to cause the drivers momentarily loss of consciousness. By putting the tape or paint across these spots, that loss of consciousness is blocked and there are noticeably fewer accidents! Painter’s blue tape can also be put across your dashboard under the window to protect your car against these energies.
To expand on this concept, if you want to block the energies of a negative neighbor, or someone in your household, you can use the blue sharpie (perfect color!) to outline any wall on your floor plan to stop their energy from penetrating into your space. If you want to suppress negative earth energies rising from the ground, you can color in all or any part of your floor plan where you feel the energy needs to be blocked.
Many times I color in the space beneath a bed if a person is not sleeping well. Also, if you live in an apartment building, you can block the energies of the people below you etc.
There are countless way to use this information. Remember, cobalt blue suppresses, blocks radiation, gold radiates out, and all experiments should be done in “Divine Law and Order!!”
