SCORPIO FULL MOON: A CRYSTAL HEALING RITUAL FOR DEEP TRANSFORMATION

Scorpio full moon date: Saturday, May 18th 2019 at 5:11pm ET

Scorpio full moons are very powerful.

The energy of Scorpio is intense. It’s full of magnetism, hidden secrets, dark places, fixed focus, embodiment of the shadow self, introspection, persistence, and sensual pleasure.

I always think of Scorpio as the sex and death sign, one of dark magicks being worked in the hob hollow.

Pair that with the potent vibes of a full moon, and you’ve got a heck of a night for conjuring!

The energy of a full moon can be worked two ways: pull or push, manifestation or banishment, depending on when you work it.

Crystals for the Garden

by Jenn Amptman from Feather Spirit Healing

Crystals for the Garden by Jenn Amptman

It’s planting time!

May brings the promise of spring, growth and blooms. What better way to honor the fertility of Mother Earth and provide for her creatures by planting a garden or placing potted plants in your home? Houseplants clean the air, put off good vibes and serve as a daily reminder of the beauty of nature. If you’re outdoorsy, a beautiful garden can provide food for your family, herbs for healing and a delicious buffet for butterflies, bees and birds. Whether you’re an avid gardener or someone that struggles with a green thumb, adding crystals to the mix can help your plants grow stronger, bigger and healthier!

Moss agate is a stone of abundance and encourages the healthy growth of plants and crops. Deeply connected to Mother Earth, moss agate can improve your green thumb and enhance the bond you share with your garden. The beautiful colors of this stone radiate a powerful Earthy vibe, calling in the nature spirits and devas.

Green aventurine has a strong connection with Mother Earth and nature spirits, bringing about a deeper understanding and appreciation of natural beauty. It protects against electromagnetic smog, environmental pollution and geopathic stress.

Tree Agate is another excellent crystal for healing geopathic stress. Associated with tree spirits, tree agate promotes healthy growth of plants and a deep connection to the Earth.

Clear Quartz is the “Master Healer,” with the ability to amplify the energies of other stones as well as intention. Program clear quartz for growth and vitality of your plants and if using a quartz point, bury it pointing up or down, depending on where you wish to direct the energy (roots or leaves/fruit).

Happy Gardening!

5 Amazing Benefits of Crystals for Moms

by Jaime Pfeffer, MA, CCR from jaimepfeffer.com

5 Amazing Benefits of Crystals for Moms

Mothers are amazing.

From teacher and caregiver to advocate, chauffeur and referee, a mother’s ability to juggle multiple schedules, tasks, and personalities is no small feat.

Luckily, today’s moms have a variety of options when it comes to replenishing their needs, staying balanced, and growing with their families. One such resource, healing crystals, are at the top of that list.

Much like the multi-talented, incredible moms they assist, gems and crystals come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes – each with special benefits.

Here are five of my top crystal benefits for moms, along with some crystal recommendations for each:

Crystal Benefit for Moms #1: Love. There is perhaps no greater characteristic that a mother needs or gives than love. From baby’s first boo-boo to teen squabbles to everything in between, love’s potent, powerful energy serves mom’s needs, too. When it comes to tapping into crystals for loving energy, Rose QuartzKunzite, and Morganite are classic choices.

Crystal Benefit for Moms #2: More Peace. If mom suffers from a busy mind, a cluttered home, or occasional overwhelming feelings, there are several crystals available to lend her some peace. Blue Calcite and Howlite work to calm energies, while Aventurine clears the mind during chaos or upheaval. On a related front, Hematite and Smoky Quartz are effective at releasing stagnancy and protecting against negative energies.

Crystal Benefit for Moms #3: Better Balance. Most people know how much today’s moms have on their plates. Given that, what better benefit than a few crystals to help even things out? To bring more equilibrium into one’s life, reach for Shiva Lingham and Mahogany Obsidian to ground and balance yin and yang energies. If emotional stability is lacking, Lepidolite, Lithium Quartz, and Sunstone are great bets.

Crystal Benefit for Moms #4: Patience. Whoever said, “Patience is a Virtue”, was definitely on to something; just ask any mom. Fortunately, today’s matriarchs can receive a helping hand in this department from several members of the crystal family. Dumortierite and Black Onyx, for example, enhance tolerance and self-restraint, while Picture Jasper and Pietersite help Mom rise above pettiness and obstacles.

Crystal Benefit for Moms #5: Strength. Whether chasing down a toddler or watching her first-born get married, most moms can benefit from added physical and emotional strength. Top picks for staying physically fit and in shape include ApatiteTiger Iron, and Pyrite. For emotional strength and support, RubyTiger Eye, and Sapphire make the grade.

Like the women they assist, crystals are multi-talented and amazing. They serve mothers in a variety of ways, from boosting love and peace to achieving balance, and building patience and strength.

Crystal Blessings,
Jaime Pfeffer

What’s the Birthstone for May?

Good Witches Homestead

If you were born in May, your birthstone is the emerald, a type of beryl colored green by chromium. Perfect emeralds are among the rarest of gemstones.

The emerald belongs to the beryl family of minerals that include aquamarine (one of March’s birthstones), heliodor, and morganite. Beryl, or beryllium aluminum silicate in chemical jargon, is a six-sided symmetrical crystal. Beryl contains beryllium, aluminum, silicon, and oxygen.

Emeralds vary in color from light to deep green. It’s commonly thought that an emerald’s color derives from the presence of chromium and/or vanadium replacing some of the aluminum in the mineral’s structure. The stone can, however, lose its color when heated strongly.

Several famous historical artifacts were made of emeralds. Among them is the Crown of the Andes, said to be made from emeralds worn by Atahualpa, the last Inca (king) of Peru. The crown is set with about 450 emeralds, collectively weighing…

TAURUS NEW MOON CRYSTALS: A RITUAL FOR YOUR LUSCIOUS LIFE

Taurus New Moon Crystals: A Ritual for Your Luscious Life

This new moon in Taurus invites you to look at the quality, not quantity, of your life.

Slow down, smell the spring flowers, wriggle your toes in the mud after a fresh, spring rain.

Reconnect with the Earth and all her splendorous glory.

There’s great magic in the Spring: the energy of fresh starts, the maiden goddess sowing her seeds of life, the feeling of hope that springs eternal.

We’re reminded to enjoy our lives, the world around us, in great ways and small. For life is fleeting, and precious.

Did any of you dance ‘round the Maypole on May 1st? Weave a wreath of flowers in your hair? Prepare your gardens for the growth of summer?

The old sabbat, Beltane, occurs on the 1st of May, and it initiates a powerful cycle of mysteries and magic – a portal that stays open until the summer solstice in June.

AND, we’re in a time when the sun is now waxing to full – there’s plenty of success vibes to go around, it’s all in how you direct them!

Taurus, ruled by the planet Venus, is a sign of wealth, abundance, beauty, earthiness, simplicity, love, sensuality, and grounding.

It’s interesting to note, too, that cows and bulls were often held sacred by the gods and goddesses of old. Zeus would transform himself into a bull. Brigid was accompanied by two white heifers. Helios had a sacred, beautiful herd kept by two of his daughters.

In runic lore, Taurus can be found in the symbol of fehu – again representing wealth, growth, plenty, status, fulfillment.

So, how can all of this glorious energy in this magical time find embodiment in your own life?

Severing Draining Energy Connections: Waning Moon Crystal Magic w/ Black Obsidian

 

The new and full moons have become powerful focal points in our community, but when we tune into the additional moon phases (the quarter moons), the magical rhythm of our lives can take on greater form and meaning.

We’ve now entered the 4th quarter or waning crescent moon (until the new moon on May 4th at 6:45pm).

This phase is a deep and internal time of facing that which we need to heal or release, or cultivate in the darker or more hidden parts of ourselves (psychic + intuitive development, past life or karmic healing, and banishment).

It’s timing is elegant and purposeful, because if we use it wisely, it empowers us for the new moon and our intentions.

Manifestation tip: The art of manifestation requires energy + focus. If your energy is split in too many directions in your life, or if it’s being too drained, there’s less potency available to help activate and manifest your intentions into being.

I’ve included a ritual below that will guide you through working with the energy of the waning crescent moon phase, and using a piece of black obsidian to sever draining energy connections that are pulling you away from your potential, holding you back from positive co-creation.

Happy birthday April babies! Your birthstone, the diamond, is the rich cousin of graphite.

Good Witches Homestead

April’s birthstone is the diamond.

Diamonds are the rich cousins of graphite. Both are crystalline forms of pure carbon. The enormous differences in their properties are a result of the way the carbon atoms are bonded together. In graphite, carbon atoms are arranged in sheets that easily slide past each other, which makes graphite ideal as a lubricant and, of course, pencil lead. Diamond crystals, on the other hand, are a tight-fisted network of carbon atoms securely held in four directions, making it the hardest naturally-occurring substance in the world.

In order to achieve such a compact and strongly-held network of carbon atoms, it is believed that diamonds must have crystallized deep under the Earth’s surface. At these depths the proper conditions for the formation of diamonds exist; at 90 to 120 miles deep, pressures are more than 65,000 times that of the atmosphere at the Earth’s surface, with temperatures…

Crystal Empowerment For Empaths

Crystal Empowerment for Empaths / krista-mitchell.com

Are you an empath?

Are you someone who’s so sensitive to the feelings of others that you experience them as your own?

If so, you’re in good company: I’m an empath, too.

And I’ll be completely honest with you: I went through energy hell living in New York City. It’s a pressure-cooker, and I was doing spiritual healing which required me to be extra in tune.

It was overwhelming, to say the least.

It took me a looooong time to learn how to manage being an empath, but I never saw it as a liability – I saw it as a strength.

It was how I was able to tune in so powerfully to my crystals, read my clients’ energy systems, have a sensory awareness of the vibes in a space when I was doing a space clearing.

It was also how I was able to fill a room with healing presence, because yeah, empaths aren’t just receiving, they’re projecting, too.

It was a gift that I learned to nurture.

So the # of messages I get on a weekly basis from empaths asking me how they can protect themselves from other peoples’ feelings concerns me.

It concerns me because it means that they’re not in their power. They’re exposed, vulnerable, suffering. And it’s my experience that the empaths of the world are our healers, our artists, teachers, guides.

March Gemstone of the Month: Aquamarine

“EVERY BLONDE SHOULD GET ON SPEAKING TERMS WITH THE FAITHFUL AQUAMARINE. THERE IS NO PRETTIER COMBINATION THAN THE PALE BLUE OF THAT GEM AND THE GOLD OF THE NATURAL BLONDE. I SAY ‘NATURAL BLONDE,’ BUT IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE TO ME WHETHER THE BLONDE BE NATURAL OR INTENTIONAL BECAUSE I AM EXPLOITING AQUAMARINES, NOT BLONDES.

– FROM THE BOOK “GOOD TASTE” BY CECIL CUNNINGHAM

aquamarine-19

I respectfully disagree with Miss Cunningham.  I am not now, nor will I ever be, a blonde, and aquamarines look just lovely on me when I wear them. Of course she wrote the book in 1916 when the height of fashion was a white woman with blonde hair, so apparently, she was…
