Quartz is the Master Healer and the "stone of power"!

Quartz is the Master Healer and the "stone of power"! This crystal has the appearance of frozen water and clear quartz appears to look like ice!

Probably the most versatile multipurpose healing stone. Easy to cleanse, store information/energy in, program or amplify energy and is used as a healing instrument. The natural tendency for quartz is for harmony. Quartz can both draw and send energy therefore it is effective for sending/receiving guidance.

Quartz is used for…

 I am always taken by the fact that there are three different swords, the poor swan has known betrayal from more than one friend, and yet still tries to raise her head. 

  

 It…

Getting Wyrd with Tarot 1-27

The draw today is the very "ent"-ish looking Hierophant from the Shadowscapes Tarot.  On his hand rests  little salamander asking a very big question.  I am greatfull for a less "Catholic" Hierpohant, one who seems to be more of a guide than a doctrinaire.   He's dispensing wisdom, not dogma.…

Getting Wyrd with Tarot 1-25

  Today's card is one of my favorite "Sun" cards.

His hand looks like he's feeding the crowd of colorful birds, so that's what today is about, feeding the neighborhood birds (and likely squirrels).  Also suggestive of greeting the sunrise in a special…

Getting Wyrd with Tarot 1-24

Wyrd (sounds like wierd) is a concept the Anglo-Saxon’s used for fate, or destiny, or that which happens.  To some it means “to turn”, the continuous flow of events that mark our moments.  Wyrd is built in the past, expressed in the moment and becomes our future.


As my love affair with the Tarot…

Crystals are formed when water combines with an element under certain conditions of pressure, temperature and energy. As a crystal, the element is able to express itself as a more unified and ordered being.

Imbalances or abnormal amounts of energy are believed…

Crystal Cleansing on the Full Wolf Moon

Crystal Cleansing on the Full Wolf Moon



January, amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. Thus, the name for January's full Moon. Sometimes it was also referred to as the Cold Moon, Old Moon, or the Moon After Yule. Some called it the Full Snow Moon, but most tribes applied that name to the next Moon.



Full Moon names date back to Native Americans, of what is now the northern and eastern United States. The tribes kept…
