Dear Seekers and IX Keepers,

This month we reflect upon the remarkable, powerful action of prayer. Prayer helps us remember that we are not just our thoughts, emotions, and beliefs. When we pray, we step out of the ordinary to unite with our Higher Self, where we can realize our soul’s greatest potential.

Prayer is both individual and collective. We can pray for ourselves, for another, or for the world. In this way, prayer becomes a conduit that can bring us closer to what we value and to each other.

Prayer can also be an expression of gratitude. Since November is when we celebrate Thanksgiving in the U.S., the IX Team would like to express our sincere appreciation to you, dear Seekers and Keepers. You are the reason we stay inspired, growing, and ever aware of our mission to expand consciousness across the globe.

It is our greatest hope that this month’s Compass nourishes your consciousness with inspiration and content designed for your body, mind, and spirit on your journey of growth. We are here, with you and for you.

With Love and Light,

Instituto Xilonen


About the Name
When we discovered these two magnificent Crystals, we knew they were meant to be standing together in honor and reverence of the Divine. Thus, they were given the name “Angel Wings.”

About the Crystal
Angel Wings are Elestial Quartz, one of the most ancient forms of quartz. The word elestial means “to the stars” because this type of Crystal is deeply linked to the cosmos, holding the wisdom and love of our ancestors and higher dimensional energies. Like an angel, Elestial Quartz continuously washes us in pure spiritual energy to help remove blockages, lighten the heart, and soothe pain and sorrows while attuning us to higher frequencies that open the door to further enlightenment.

Message from Angel Wings
“I am softness. I am purity. I carry the pain of the world and then I release it. Send me your worries and your pain. Together we will transmute them into wisdom. Together we will separate pain from hope, pain from power, and pain from truth. Truth and wisdom are born from pain. Do not carry the pain longer than you need to. Do not get attached to the story of your pain. Use it to strengthen your resolve to stay in higher vibrations of honesty and acceptance. I am kind. I share my kindness with you in hopes you will share your kindness with others. This is a beautiful way to exchange the energies of the Universe. Use me to assist you in seeing better versions of everyone and everything around you. Find your inner strength to assist you in having higher thoughts and choosing to take higher roads. Together let’s pray. Together let’s spread kindness and love to this earth plane. Together. I am here to assist. With love, I serve.“

November begins at the very end of the Lunar cycle, which started with last month’s New Moon in Libra and carried us through Mercury’s retrograde in the sign of the scales. Mercury, Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter are now moving forward. At the same time, we are traversing the season of transformation, as the Sun and Mars in powerful Scorpio inspire us to now make the changes we are clear about.

Scorpio, the sign of ancestors, change, and shared resources, reminds us that we are bound by a shared human destiny to those that came before us, and those who are yet to be. Therefore, as we seek transformation, we at IX are choosing to focus this month on prayer. Prayer can reunite us with what we are seeking as we ask to be guided to our highest potential to better serve the beautiful legacy of our ancestors and pave the sacred path for those who will follow us.

Our capacity for meaningful change gets an energy surge on November 5th, when the New Moon in Scorpio, opposed by evolutionary Uranus, begins an exceptionally powerful lunar cycle of epic transformation, calling us to make and embody significant changes. The very next day, as Luna waxes, Mercury enters Scorpio, deepening our transformational intelligence, and Venus steps into Capricorn to inspire commitment to our most beautiful goals.

Scorpio wisdom invites us to zip ourselves into the cocoon of change this month and surrender all that we have been to become something more. If we examine carefully, the sign of ancestry reminds us that we did not get here alone, and cannot achieve our heart’s desire without the contribution of others. The process of transformation, which involves a sort of death, often brings us to prayer and the need for both human and Divine support as we face and step into the unknown.

The transformative process appears to be a lonely business, but perhaps the caterpillar is praying all along, following the inner promptings of an Invisible Loving Force that is guiding the miraculous changes within. So too, can we pray for the courage to change this month, as the Sun and daring Mars inspire us to face the unknown and attend to small changes that add up to transformation.

Once outside the cocoon, the butterfly takes to the sky with a bevy of friends on new wings to explore ancestral landscapes from an entirely new perspective. If we do our work this month and ruthlessly shed what no longer applies to us, by the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on November 19th, we may be ready to emerge transformed, or we will know where further change is required.

On November 21st, the Sun leaves Scorpio’s depths and rides his solar chariot into Sagittarius, ready to travel in search of wisdom, adventure, and new frontiers. He will be joined by Mercury on the 24th who will be inspiring our most expansive optimistic thinking, and a higher perspective after his deep dive through Scorpio. Mars, the planetary ruler of the month will remain in Scorpio all month and beyond, to fuel the empowering changes we are committed to. As the month and the lunar cycle wind down, may we find ourselves traveling with our soul tribe, like monarch butterflies on their way to joyous destinations.

With Love and Blessings to All,
