To The Moon & Back: 2-Pc Set for Intuition & Emotional Healing

Originally made for a custom order, this set is now available for sale because I am making alterations to the design for the customer. 

This piece features hematite, moonstone, golden rutilated quartz, blue labradorite, amethyst and sodalite. The pendant is hematite, with a single moonstone bead suspended in front of it.

Labradorite is a wonderful stone for protection, sealing energetic leaks, intuition, working on psychic gifts and connecting with your inner/higher self. It is an often-favored crystal among shamans, healers, energy workers and psychics.

Moonstone was used in love spells and to divine the future by ancient people. It is universally recognized as having a connection to the moon and the divine feminine. Use it to enhance intuition and soothe anxiety. Use moonstone to aid in relief of symptoms related to hormonal issues, to help you find luck in a new beginning, or to enhance creative inspiration.

Sodalite is a stone of creativity, inspiration and protection. This is a stone of healing, balance and harmony among groups of people. Sodalite is associated with water, wisdom and intuition, the throat and third eye chakras. Use it to ease anxiety and learn how to trust your own instincts.

Amethyst is calming, harmonizing, and good at drawing peaceful energy. It is a wonderful healing stone, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Amethyst can be used to aid in all kinds of psychic work, including enhancing one’s intuition. It can be used to protect travelers and to ward off psychic attack. Like garnet, amethyst was often worn or carried into battle as a protective amulet.

Hematite is a very grounding stone, often used in various forms of healing. Black and similar, dark colors are associated with the root chakra, which governs our relationship with the physical world and self-preservation.

Loosen up! The flipside of Mercury in retrograde…

MercuryRetro

We’re on the cusp of another Mercury retrograde period, and whenever it rolls around, I find myself wondering why there is such a feeling of imminent doom – sometimes even panic. People talk about wanting to just hide out while the weeks of retrograde pass, but by staying braced and focusing on the negative (much of which is a bit of an overreaction), people are missing out on all of the positives that come along with Mercury retrograde. Actually, in Vedic astrology, Mercury retrograde is considered a very positive time, exactly opposite of what we in the West have made it out to be.

I’m not denying that there are a few negative things that Mercury retrograde actually does enhance, such as communication snafus and misunderstandings. However, I think we tack on a lot more than the retrograde period is responsible for. Mercury retrograde is a wonderful time for intuition and introspection, for creativity and whimsy, for clearing, thinking, meditating, and other, less corporeal activities. This is the time that creative blocks start to loosen up, physical and energetic clutter is cleared out a little more easily (perfect time for spring cleaning!), and those of us that work with our intuition and psychic gifts will find that they are even more powerful.  More
