AstroGemology: Cancerian Soul Stones and Power Crystals

Opal is the soul stone for later-born Cancers. Opals can’t be duplicated artificially due to the complicated nature of their patterning, varying hues, and play of color. The most precious of all opals feature a star, called an asterism. Opals are mysterious, just like Cancers, having much depth beneath their protective shells. The ancients exulted about opals; Pliny the Elder wrote, “For in them you shall see the living fire of ruby, the glorious purple of the amethyst, the sea-green of the emerald, all glittering together in an incredible mixture of light.” Cancer, you will come into your soul’s true purpose by wearing opal jewelry.

AstroGemology: Capricorn Soul Stones and Power Crystals

Capricorns born n late December and early January  have two power stones: jet and lazulite are each stones that have a dark and shadowy appearance representative of the Capricornian planet of Saturn.  Jet, named for its intense black color and hardness, is one of the oldest stones known to man, making it a perfect match for slow and steady Capricorns, who are reputed to grow more youthful as they get older.  Capricorns have great longevity; they live long and prosper!  Lazulite, opaque and often displaying the dark and cloudy blue associated with the energy of the planet Saturn, is good for mental processes and stimulates the frontal lobe.  Dogged and hardworking Capricorns will do well to keep this concentration-enhancing talisman nearby at all times.

Latter half Capricorns get to have lapis lazuli as their talismanic crystal.  This stone was absolutely revered by the Egyptians and other Mesopotamian cultures.  With its bright saturnine blue, this stone connotes wisdom, accomplishment, and value, as befits the latter half of Capricorn.  Capricorns sometimes seem slow and plodding to others, but they are really anything but.  Capricorns are surefooted and careful and will get to the top of the mountain while others fall behind.

Chakra Healing Crystals: Rainbow Medicine

The concept of chakras originated many thousands of years ago in Asia and it is fascinating to see how it only grows in interest and importance over the centuries.The ancient philosophers and metaphysicians identified seven main energy centers in the body, with each chakra identified with a color of the rainbow emanating energy affecting the mental, physical, and spiritual balance of every person.  Chakra theory is at the foundation of many Eastern healing practices.  One of the simplest ways to achieve well-being is to place a crystal on the part of the body where a particular chakra is located.  Many people I know credit their clarity and health to chakra therapy.  One sure way to relieve stress and enhance the emotional body is the chakric application of crystals.  A goddessy girlfriend  of mine placed an amber stone in her navel when she was starting a business, and her personal power and drive soared.  These things do work!  Perhaps you might choose a ring for your left hand with a lovely pink or red stone to open your heart and bring both love and serenity.  Now, it does not get better than that, does it?

AstroGemology: Sagittarius Soul Stones

Sagittarians are some of the most adventurous and energetic of all in their pursuit of truth and here are stones that can empower them on their life’s journey. Tourmaline—specifically the multihued specimen known as melonstone, which is pinkish red with a blue-green stripe—is the precious soul stone for the Jupiter-ruled Sagittarians. Individuals under this fire sign are lively and very action-oriented, and tourmaline, which readily gives off an electrical charge when warmed, can match and propel their energy. Tourmaline is the stone for adventurers and explorers. Get some today and hit the road, dear Sag.

Amber is the power stone for early Sagittarians. This rock formed from fossilized tree sap and resin, an organic crystal. Amber was thought by the ancients to have trapped the sun, and it was called electron by the Greeks, who observed its negative electrical charge. Even wildly active Sagittarians should wear this stone only on special occasions. It keeps energy cycling within, which is good, but it can have a weakening effect if worn all the time. Amber helps performers; actors and musicians swear by it.

Herbal Healing Magic

Many herbal enthusiasts swear by infusions. Here is a wonderfully simply method for brewing up an infusion. I recommend placing one cup of the dried herb into a quart canning jar and filling it with freshly boiled water. After the steeping for up to four hours, then, strain with a non-metallic method such as cheesecloth or bamboo. . Many of the favorite kitchen garden herbs contain minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals including the list herein. What do you need to attend in your life now? This list of herbs and associations can be your guide; one of the smartest ways to approach this methodology is to brew right before bedtime and you will awaken to a freshly infused herb. Some of the most popular herbs and fruits used to create infusions are as follows:


Anise Seeds & Leaves: soothes cramps and aches
Caraway Seeds:  aids in romantic issues, helps with colic
Catnip Leaves:  makes women even more attractive
Chamomile Flowers: helps with sleep, good for abundance

Usher Positive Change Into Your Life With These Crystals

What do you want to change in your life? Make a list and jumpstart your to-change list with these crystals. For example, I am embracing the wisdom that less truly is more, I am ready to let go and release some of my belongings that no longer serve me and have become clutter, if you want to get more organized, l get some lazulite. Crystals and sacred stones can be a great source of clarity and help process emotions. Please note that I do NOT even consider crystals to be clutter. They are gorgeous and also helping the entire household with good vibes and good energy.   Also, I have never really had any jade, but recently, I feel like I need the grounding and stabilizing effects of this stone. Additionally, I need to get more prosperity-minded. I need to be better about saving money and thinking in terms of my future security so I’m not reading tarot out on the sidewalk when I’m 90! So, I have been walking through San Francisco’s Chinatown and feeling very attracted to different jades. I’m sure you feel such urges and attractions, too. Often, this might be your subconscious giving you a gentle nudge about some growing you need to do. Listen to those inner voices, and you will reap the benefits again and again.

Change Your Life With Sacred Stones:
