honor the Goddess:
Properties: The stone of spirituality and dream recall. Used for contentment and
meditation. Provides common sense and flexibility in decisions. Strengthens and
enhances psychic abilities, imagery and mind quieting. Wear when sleeping or
when awake to reduce anger, impatience, and nightmares. Most effective on the
Brow and Crown Chakra. Amethyst contains the grounding color of red with the
energy of blue, which is expanding, spacious and flow of peace. Amethyst is the
color that you see in the sky as twilight transitions into night. Amethyst takes
you on this transition from the magic time of dusk to a conscious shift into a
different place. Crossing this threshold is the lesson of humility, which
Amethyst can teach us. This stone can show us how to let go and trust; surrender
so that you may see beyond the cycle that consumes your attention; give it all
up, so that you can receive more; and bow, that you may become a part of the
greater whole. Amethyst is considered a Master Healing stone.
Properties: Referred to as the jewel of wisdom or Stone of Heaven. Azurite
symbolizes insight and discovery. It is said to increase psychic abilities.
Azurite activates the Brow and Throat Chakra for more assertive communication
and alertness. It allows for quite, deep access to the subconscious and as a
seeing stone offers access to other times, places and lives. Therefore, it is a
great stone to assist in astral travel. This great balancer helps those who talk
too much and allows for those who to be expressive when they have a tendency to
hold back. This opens our psychic intuition and gets us aquainted with our
innerselves. It is a stone that stimulates creativity, giving access to a
fountain of ideas, images and awareness of things around us.
Properties: Moonstone honors the Goddess in all women. This stone helps women
(and men) to be more comfortable with their gentler feminine/yin receiving side.
This stone is also an excellent remedy for overly aggressive females or for men
who need to connect to their more feminine/emotional side. Its connection to the
moon has been documented for centuries. Because of its shimmering, glossy nature
its color plays off the light as does the moon. Like the moon as it waxes and
wanes, this reflective stone allows us the lesson that everything is a part of
the cycle of change. Moonstone is considered the stone of new beginnings.
Moonstone is most famous for balancing our emotional states. Therefore,
moonstone is one of the best stones for soothing emotional stress and anxiety.
Moonstone helps cool, soothe and calm over-reactions to emotional and personal
situations. It allows us greater flexibility and flow with life. Moonstone has
been used for protection against the perils of travel. It encourages a lust for
life, a youthful attitude and helps us to become comfortable with the aging
process and its transitions.
Properties: In tune with emotions, water, and women, especially pregnant women,
pearls are a symbol of pure heart and mind; innocence and faith. Because it is
from the sea, it has watery and lunar elements, therefore it is used for
balancing emotions, especially for water signs. Absorbing by nature, this
mineral absorbs thoughts and emotions and because of this, must be used with
caution. If you feel excessively negative while wearing a pearl, it will hold
that energy until it is cleansed. Remember, Pearl is the result of layer upon
layer of substance produced to combat irritation. Pearl can cool and soothe. It
is very nurturing. If using pearls in conjunction with other gemstones, consider
Diamonds to amplify and purify, or Emeralds to bring negative energy out and
disperse it. Recommended for occupations as varied as artists, chiropractors,
and farmers. Pearl is a cold and independent mineral, which is used, ironically

liver and emotional issues, digestion, immunity weakness and emotional stress.

other stones. It is a powerful crystal for clearing and activating the chakras.

stones used for healing, and to balance energy within one. It can also alleviate
