Moonstone

Recently got myself a beautiful Moonstone pendant, which i’ve actually just had to take off because it feels so strong. I took her in the ocean the other day and then lay in bright sunlight so i feel she’s overcharged and needs some peace for awhile. A shame, because she looks so beautiful but you have to listen to your stones.

🌙 The stone of new beginnings. Can be beneficial for adjusting to a difficult change or invoking a different path in life if you feel stuck in a rut.

🌙 Can calm and soothe hot headed, fiery or anxious people, especially passive aggressive or quietly threatening people, with its passive feminine energy. 

🌙 Invokes intuition, and encourages spontaneity.

🌙 Opens the wearer to the energies of others, giving a heightened ability to read and understand situations and the feelings of others. 

🌙 Encourages lucid dreaming and clairvoyant/psychic abilities (in the way that you may be able to tune in to more subtle energies and vibrations around you, giving you a better understanding of the space and the beings in it). 

So overall, Moonstone drastically boost perception, intuition and spirituality, and allows you to understand and perceive  deeper understandings of the things around you, which is generally why it is known as the Psychics Stone. 

This is why i needed to take it off: i was analysing everyone and everything around me to the point that my head god chaotic. I felt and understood too much, and got too deep into my own head.

Moonstone holds protective energy and is balancing for the emotions. Moonstone is thought to be powerful with regard to love and passion. The name itself is somewhat romantic; in ancient times it was believed that it drew moonlight, some cultures even thought it was created from solidified moonbeams. Whereas rose quartz is the gem of love, Moonstone is most definitely the gem of passion, with powers that are thought to cause fervor and create sexual energy, often stoking arousal and provoking feelings of eroticism. It is also believed that Moonstone can help lovers to predict the fortune of their relationship, indicating good or bad times ahead, and some even used it to promote fertility.

Rose Quartz promotes romantic love as well as self-love and acceptance. It is the stone of forgiveness, humility, and patience. It teaches us to open our hearts and to be tender, peaceful, and gentle. Perhaps the most infamous love stone is Rose Quartz, which is known to be the stone of unconditional love. Its calming energy is thought to help give one a sense of inner peace and love for one’s self. Rose Quartz also encourages sensitivity and compassion, even helping us to build trust in others, all attributes that are harmonious with the act of falling in love. Essentially, Rose Quartz puts you in a state of mind that allows you to receive love. If you are suffering from lost or unrequited love it will help to comfort you; if you have been betrayed in love it will help bring back faith and trust, as well as a sense of self-worth and self-esteem; if you have simply never been in love, it will open up all the possibilities of falling in love. Rose Quartz opens the Heart for love, and gives love to the wearer who might other wise have trouble giving love to themselves or to others. Rose Quartz shows you the power of your emotions and of the ability of Love to “Conquer All”. This crystal brings softness to hardened Hearts, teaching you to Trust Your Heart. It dispels negative emotional states, such as gloom, despondency and possessiveness, and promotes harmonious relationships. Rose Quartz is very calming and loving.

Ruby, “A Stone of Love and Endurance” is another ancient Love Stone which encourages romantic love and promotes the ideal relationship. This crystal brings focus to the Heart and releases disoriented, trapped love energy. It protects the Heart from unnecessary love-suffering and promotes the attainment of love objectives: health, happiness, wealth, spiritual knowledge The luminous Ruby is associated with romantic love and love of self. Ruby brings integrity, devotion, and happiness. It is said to strengthen both the physical and the emotional heart, bringing courage to the wearer. Confidence, vitality, stamina, and strength are all qualities associated with Ruby. The Ruby is filled with love. It also helps sexual love to be more passionate. Persons lacking in self-love should have and meditate on the Ruby. It also gives the courage to be the best potential that a person has.

Two of Pentacles.

Expect the worst and it surely will find you, eventually. Where your life is consumed by fear, put forth the energy to make a transformation. To that which torments you, show compassion. To that which confuses, show understanding. Have courage in the face of fear. The light of one thousand suns shines upon your back. Even within the blackest of depths, know that you are never alone.

sorchakitsune  asked:

I've been attracted to crystals all my life. I have a decent sized collection. I've recently started following an eclectic celtic pagan path. My question is this, how do you figure out the correct properties of the crystals? There is so much information out there and much of it is different from one website/book to the next. Where do you begin?!

Oh my goodness I know what you mean! One of the best things about being eclectic is that you don’t get all of your information from one source. It can be really overwhelming, but I have noticed that clear quartz seems to be a one-size-fits-most crystal, as well as amethyst, so I keep those handy at all times. Here are a few of my favorite posts about crystals. I really hope they help. And I’m here to answer any questions. I’m kinda new at this but I enjoy it.

My there are so many more. If you have time, keeping a grimoire as a quick reference may really help. Tumblr is an excellent resource, but remember if you aren’t comfortable with it, or if you find something doesn’t work out for you like it does for others, you can always do what feels natural to you. I know most of what I do is organic (free flowing) and natural. I do what I feel in the moment, and use what is speaking to me at the time. :)

Aquamarine

♒ Aquamarine is a beautiful stone for people who are highly sensitive, as it is recognised as the Stone of the Fearless.

♒ It is also benefitial for times when one needs closure; its calming energies quiet the mind and reduce the stress response, allowing the wearer to filter through the information, join the dots and come to a resolve. 

♒ With this being said, it also promotes self-expression and clears blocked communication allowing the wearer to adequately express their emotional state calmly and rationally. 

♒ Its a wonderful stone to boost harmonious aura to those around you as it blocks off the wearers self-critiscism and anxiety, and the intolerance and judgement of others. 

♒ A wonderful stone for meditation and spiritual discovery as its calming energies ground the mind yet still allow it become heightened in spiritual awareness (sending you into a focal dream-state instead of a drifting dream-state - like having a really vivid dream that you remember after waking.)


Overall, the beautiful Aquamarine would be beneficial for lost, confused, depressive, self-loathing and socially awkward/misunderstood people, as it boosts the wearers ability to be strong and understood in themselves, as they naturally are, in an outward way that is seen and felt by those around them, while also allowing them internally to accept and comprehend others in return.
