Astrological Gemstones – Sun Sign Crystals + What they Mean

As humans, we feel the need to understand + evaluate ourselves and each other on a daily basis. Our self awareness is what sets us apart from so many other beings in this world, and we are fascinated by it. I have long been interested in the Zodiac signs and their amazing ability to discern personalities and events based solely on birth dates. Recently, I have seen more and more people like me have started connecting with the universe and wanting to find out as much information as possible.

After thorough research, I learned that each of our Sun Sign’s have specific power gemstones that lend to our unique traits. Below is what I was able to gather. Remember, although these are suggestions on how you can better harness the power of your Sun Sign, gemstones + crystals often choose us before we choose them. Don’t discard a gemstone that you feel a connection with just because it is not listed with your sun sign. We all have our own paths.

Aries Power Gemstones:

With your ruling planet being Mars, you have a spark + fire that is uniquely distinguishable from the other signs. You are a pioneer and find excitement in competition. Although you do not quake at the idea of being assertive, you take great pride in your integrity—especially when it comes to your passions. As an Aries, you are independent, fearless, courageous, and a natural leader. Moreover, you are proud to have these qualities, and because of this it is important for you to de-stress and relax so that you can prominently be at your best. You find that you have a tendency to put an enormous amount of pressure on yourself, and it is easy to get caught in that if you do not take the time to pause and recharge.

To make the most of these impressive traits for yourself and for your presence in a crowd, we suggest you turn to your power gemstones for enhancement. The three best stones for Aries are Carnelian, Citrine, and Garnet. Carnelian is a reddish-orange stone is gives off a strong presence and lends to your intuition. Citrine is a yellow stone and has long been used for power in manifesting dreams and desires by connecting with your intentions. Garnet is deep red in color and ensures you reach your maximum potential by enhancing your personal and professional performance. Tiny Devotions has several mala beads and adornments that are perfectly suited for the Aries manifester.

Pisces Power Gemstones:

Neptune is your ruling planet, which correlates to your selfless, empathetic, and compassionate personality. By nature, you want to take care of others and often put yourself on the line to do so. Despite some people’s tendency to exploit your desire to help, you persevere and rarely ask for things in return. Often, you are creative and innovative. In the circumstances that you are not you have a unique ingenuity to make up for it. Unfortunately, as an empath, you are sometimes vulnerable to others negative energy or outlooks. They may drain you or effect a situation you are in significantly.

To protect yourself from this and to heighten your innovative traits, we suggest for you to find a way to connect with your Pisces Birthstone, Aquamarine. This gemstone can counter negativity + can deepen your own insights without being influenced by others. Aquamarine can also thin the veil between you and any resentments you may have harbored towards others or yourself, leading you down a road of forgiveness and a healthier mind. Another strong gemstone for Pisces is Amethyst. This purple and clear crystal can strengthen your spirituality, calm your anxiety, and bring you mental peace when used regularly.

The people that are lucky enough to be in your circle appreciate your energy, thoughtfulness, and (sometimes) bizarre humor. You are independent and your uniqueness is nearly rebellious. You are a free-spirit and do not conform to the norm.

With these incredible traits in mind, there is some stubbornness to you as well. You have a clear of idea of how you want things to go which sometimes conflicts with other strong personalities. We recommend you keep your power gemstones with you to ease these times. Aquamarine resonates with you highly due to its alluring light blue color and water qualities. This gemstone can be used to help you connect with your community and family values. It can also be used to call upon your forgiveness As an Aquarius, sometimes you find that you feel hurt or betrayed, and it hits you harder than most.

While these are admirable traits, you may also suffer negative effects from this strong moral and objective compass.

Negative traits of this water sign include being reserved, often with your walls up when interacting with people. This does hinder you in some ways, and you wonder after a conversation how you came off to the other person. However, it also makes the people you have let beyond those walls feel special and prized. Self-preservation can be considered a negative and a positive, but mostly you feel it is the latter.

Both your nurturing, loving side and your reserved side can be helped with your power gemstones. The perfect gemstone to ground yourself with and enhance your confidence is Jasper. Kyanite brings protection which makes you feel less inclined to have your walls up so high. Jade is your true power gemstone, as it can open your heart without exposing yourself too much, and it has been said by many sources to attract abundance, prosperity, and happiness.

Leo, your sign is considered masculine among the other signs due to your strength in character and in personality. You are bold, regal, and have an enormous heart. The people lucky enough to be close to you appreciate your artistic mind, charm, and energy. Many would argue that the Leo is the most sociable of all the signs, although not always easy to get along with. Your energy vibrates high which draws people to you, but you are not often prepared to reciprocate the attraction.

Your charms and creativity make you a crowd pleaser by nature, and your power gemstones can increase this trait even more for you as well as bring you prosperity, luck, and fortune. Garnet is known to fuel the inner fire for the Leo and is a deep shade of red. Tiger’s Eye, much like the Lion, is unique, fierce, and lends to the leader you were born to be. Carnelian is also suitable for you if you are on the more creative side because it charges you own inner strengths and stimulates creativity. Enjoy the bountiful life has to offer you, Leo!

 

Cancer Power Gemstones:

Some people say that the Cancer is exactly like the crab that it represents: Hard on the outside, and goo in the middle! It is no secret that you are the most nurturing and sentimental of all the signs. However, not everyone gets to see this side of you. In fact, you keep it under very close wraps until you feel that the person is worthy of the best version of yourself. This is a strategic and intelligent move, but also leaves a lot of people that have come into your life wondering about you. You are intelligent, easy-going, adaptive, and loving. Everyone that is close to you knows it was worth the initial struggle to get to know you.

With so much going on in your mind, there are a few power gemstones that you would benefit the most from. Moonstone is connected directly to the moon and is known to lend the moon’s energy and protection to the wearer. Jasper is essential for enhancing your endurance, overcoming adversity, and sharpening the mind. Abalone shell is connected to the changing tides and emotions of the sea, which responds to your naturally empathetic personality.

 

Gemini Power Gemstones:

Gemini, you are naturally playful and have a young heart. People would say you find fun in almost every circumstance. As you know, there are two sides to you, and people better be careful not to get on the wrong one! Often gorgeous and magnetic, others find themselves envious of what you have and your high-spirited attitude. You are also known to vigilantly seek the truth and explore your curiosities. You have found that you are talented in many different ways and want to expand upon those talents whenever able.

To connect with the curious and ambitious side of you, we recommend wearing Jade. This gemstone disintegrates negativity and introduces peace, balance, and good fortune. Quartz would also be helpful because of its ability to connect with your spiritual side. Carnelian is your third power gemstone, which helps the wearer feel joyous and powerful. Any of these gemstones are sure to enrich your life, Gemini.

 

Taurus Power Gemstones:

Ah, the Taurus. You are well known for your stubbornness, patience, and determination. You are set in your ways and don’t much care for how others perceive things. You prefer a slow-paced life, where you can remain calm and level-headed in most circumstances. You are very anti-drama and could do without it all together. At the same time, you also greatly enjoy group projects and tasks. You feel a sense of accomplishment when working with like-minded individuals, which makes you a tremendous asset at your place of work. In love, you feel you are at your best, but you also don’t mind being single because you don’t have to worry about getting hurt. Your mind is strategic, and you like to have a plan in place before going into something new.

Your power gemstones and crystals can give you the power to connect with yourself in new ways and tackle any obstacle. Peridot is a lime green precious gemstone. It feeds off of positivity and can bring good things to new heights. Carnelian lends energy to you and can help you move forward from a bad situation.

What is Sacred Geometry and how can you benefit from it?

The term ‘Geometry’ has its origin from two Greek words: Geos, which mean Earth and Metron, which means ‘to measure.’ The two words together literally mean ‘measuring the earth’ or ‘earthly measurements.’ Measuring the earth was an art that was traditionally restricted to the priesthood.

Sacred geometry has been around across the ages, beginning with the Minoans, the Egyptians, Sumerians, Hindus, Chinese, Phoenicians, and the Greeks who offered it to the public.

Sacred geometry refers to the various shapes and forms that were traditionally used in architecture, art, and meditation through the centuries. They are the same forms and shapes that are found in natural organisms.

To many people, sacred geometry seems to be esoteric but it is important to understand the same as they could help us view our world, which could be useful in our own life.

In ancient cultures, there was the recognition that various patterns or geometric shapes appear repeatedly throughout nature such as the spiral shell of snails and the hexagonal honeycombs. These common shapes and patterns that can be seen in nature are referred to as sacred geometry. Sacred geometry may be broken down further in mathematical formulas and symbols that form the building blocks of everything in the universe.

This ancient theory is supported by modern science because the molecular shapes form the basis of life, the same shapes that are identified by ancient cultures.

It is believed that the construction of sacred structures, such as mosques, temples, monuments, megaliths, and churches; sacred spaces such as tabernacles or altars; historical buildings, such as the pyramids of Egypt, the Parthenon in Greece, and the temples found throughout South and Central America; meeting places; and the creation of religious arts and iconography. Sacred geometry in arts may be ephemeral, such as sand paintings, medicine wheels, and visualization.

Sacred geometry is a worldview of pattern recognition. It is a complex system of religious structures and symbols that involve time, space, and form. Following this view, the basic patterns of existence are sacred. By studying the nature of the forms, patterns, and relationships and their connections, it will be easier to gain an insight into the history and mysterious laws of the Universe.

 

Sacred Geometry’s significant shapes

 

Sphere

 

It is a container that has the ability to hold all forms. Sphere represents inclusion, oneness, and integrity because all measurements are equal in a sphere. The spherical shape can be seen in planets, cells, seeds, and atoms.

 

Circle

 

It is a two-dimensional representation of the sphere. It shows the total completeness and unity of the universe. The ratio of its circumference compared to its diameter is the Pi, an infinite number that never ends.

 

Point

 

It is the center of both a sphere and a circle. The point is the beginning and the end of all measurements, hence its association with the beginning and the end of all creations.

 

Spirals

 

All types of spirals – flat, right-handed, left-handed, 3-D, equiangular, or logarithmic – show expansion and growth, which makes them symbolize infinity.

 

Toroids

 

A torus is similar to an inner tube, with the round sides perfectly circular. The torus is a primary shape in sacred geometry, such as the seven primary muscles in the heart having a toroid shape.

 

The Vesica Piscis

 

The words are Latin for a bladder of fish. It is actually the intersection of two circles having the same size as their centers touching each other. It represents common ground between people. It is the symbol of Christ in the Christian religion.

 

Platonic solids

 

They are 3-dimensional shapes with each one made of equal-sized faces. The platonic solids are:

 

  • Tetrahedron – 4 faces of pyramid shapes
  • Hexahedron – 6 faces such as a cube
  • Octahedron – 8 faces
  • Dodecahedron – 12 faces
  • Icosahedron – 20 faces

 

Metatron’s Cube

 

The Metatron’s cube contains all the Platonic solids, making it called the building blocks of creation. Metatron in Judaism is the angel who is guarding God’s throne.

 

Flower of Life

It is represented by several evenly-spaced circles that overlap each other, forming a flower-like pattern. The Flower of Life contains all the Platonic solids and Metatron’s Cube.

 

The Golden Ratio

 

It is a mathematical ratio occurring when two items having the same ratio when compared to each other as the ratio of their sum compared to the larger of the two items.

 

Sacred Geometry Jewelry

 

Sacred Geometry has been used by anthropologists, archeologists, and geometricians in incorporating the religious, spiritual, and philosophical beliefs that have sprung up from geometry in various cultures over the centuries. The various shapes of sacred geometry can be found everywhere in nature as they reveal to mankind the concept of oneness through geometry.

 

The various sacred geometry shapes have been incorporated in jewelry designs in order to facilitate the balance, healing, and self-discovery while at the same time inspiring the wearer as he or she travels towards the totality and unity of the whole self.

Think Abundantly, Live Abundantly

motivation quote nothing will work unless you do on a white table with coffee and a keyboard

Live and breathe abundance.

When we think of abundance, we tend to see dollar signs dancing before our eyes. But holding an attitude of abundance means so much more than having money in the bank: we can be abundant in all areas of our lives from time, to love, to health.

How can we cultivate an attitude of abundance in our daily lives? Using your thoughts to gravitate towards feeling more abundant every day is one way to bring more good into your life. Although it’s not always easy to control your mind, the more you focus on it, the more it will begin to feel like second nature.

To get you started, here are three steps towards thinking and living abundantly:

Be conscious of your beliefs

What are your true, core beliefs about life? This may take some time to figure out, but we all have deep-seated thoughts and feelings about the way the world works and what is truly possible for us. Maybe your parents instilled in you a fear of being destitute, and you’ve carried this belief into adulthood. Whether you have negative beliefs about work, money, or relationships, take a moment to jot them down honestly in a journal without judgment. You may be surprised to find out what you really think about the world and yourself.

Affirm the positive

Once you have your beliefs out on the table, flip each belief on its head by pairing it up with a positive affirmation. Maybe you’ve always believed your dream of being a famous singer is impossible, or that you’ll never find your soul mate. Whatever it is, jot down a more positive, good-feeling belief next to it. Even if you don’t believe the positive affirmation yet, write it down anyway and commit it to memory.

Focus on feeling abundant

Now that you’ve established a better feeling thought for each of your negative beliefs, all you have to do is focus on the positive thought. Every time you feel a negative feeling creeping up, take a deep inhale and exhale it out completely through the mouth. Remember your positive affirmations, and try to bring a more abundant feeling into your awareness. Every time you feel small, shrunken, depleted or yucky, that’s your body telling you that you’re focusing on a negative belief and straying from the path of abundance. Use the way you feel as a compass, and your breath as a tool for ridding yourself of stuck emotions. Keep the inhales and exhales flowing freely and deeply, and you’re one step closer to bringing abundance into every area of your life.

How do you live abundantly each day? What tools, rituals and practices do you like to use to cultivate abundance in your life?

Authenticity in Spirituality – Remaining You in the Woo-Woo

New Age spirituality is everywhere now. Self-love is exploding and I guess you can say being soulful is certainly #trending. Psychic mediums no longer have little shops but have hit TV shows, there are certainly more life coaches than therapists and the New Age section in your local bookstore no longer collects dust. There’s an amazing open-ness to being connected to your soul and it seems like everyone is joining the party! If you’re part of this amazing movement there’s one very important thing to do — always remain YOU in the WOO-WOO.

The importance of remaining YOU in the WOO

Practice what you preach. Authenticity in spirituality is the MOST important thing to practice and to preach to others. Spirituality is the soul’s practice. It’s your identity and your unique fingerprint in this world. It should reflect only your purest self at all times.

Remaining YOU IN THE WOO isn’t easy; it takes a lot of hard work. The ego loves to hate on your happiness and insert fear into anything it can. So the question is, how do you stay on track with your authentic self? How do you not let your ego run the show when your main shtick as being someone spiritual is all about how bad the ego is?

How can the ego get you trippin’ in spirituality?

The ego loves to trip you up in spirituality. I can name countless times my ego had me trippin’ hard in my soulful practices. Here are a few ways to identify the ego at work:

  1. The ego will make you believe that spirituality is a competition. Have you ever been in a yoga class and all of a sudden you started mentally competing against the person next to you? You felt the need to push as hard as they were and you weren’t listening to what your body was actually telling you? Oh, how the ego loves a good yoga practice and making everything an unhealthy competition.
  2. Are you running a soul inspired business? Are you a life coach or blogger? Do you find yourself comparing yourself to others who are doing the same thing? The ego aims to put you up against others and inserts feelings of jealousy and fear.
  3. Are you new to spirituality? Are you just learning about intuition and manifestation and all of the good things that go along with it? Have you had thoughts of “why am I not getting this?” or “I must not have the intuitive gifts that others have” or “I feel so connected to this but I’m afraid I’ll be judged by my friends and family for believing in this”. The ego is afraid of change and never wants you to step out of what society thinks is “normal”.

Remember one thing and one thing only — the ego is NOT THE TRUTH. The ego is nothing but fear. Keeping it in check takes practice, but is guaranteed to keep you soulfully connected to yourself and to others.

How to keep your ego in check in spirituality:

  1. Marvelous Mantras – A mantra is a positive truthful word or sentence that you repeat on the regular. It’s believed that a mantra has psychological and spiritual powers to heal. Whenever you recognize your ego speaking, say your mantra.
  2. It’s not competition – It’s collaboration – It’s not you against the world when it comes to spirituality. It’s the COMPLETE opposite. Spirituality is all about collaboration and learning from each other. It’s creating new relationships with the like-hearted and making a difference as ONE and not as a solo act. Collaboration over ego, always.
  3. Magic mindset – Be OPEN to the world around you and never let the ego second guess a miracle in the making or one happening right before you. Miracles are real, the ego isn’t.
  4. Soulful Swag – Wearing something everyday as a reminder to remain centered and authentic. Whenever I put on my Tiny Devotions Mermaid Mala in the morning I can feel the positive energy cruising through my body. When I’m faced with anxiety or my ego starts talking serious smack I grab the stone, close my eyes and speak or think my mantra.

Everyone has a soul, and it’s time to rock it in the best way possible! Be authentic in everything you do, speak and believe in. It’s not competing its collaboration. It’s community and above all it’s love. It’s the root of you and everyone else. Remain YOU in the WOO-WOO of it all!

The Best Gifts We’ve Every Received #giveintention

 

 



 

Dee: Friendship
Friendship is kind of like a party. Your energy draws people in. BFF’s that are always down for an adventure, sisters to soul speak with, besties that light a spark within us + a tribe to keep us grounded. Friends make us smile + allow us to be our authentic selves. They will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
 

Katie: Intuition
I’ve learned that although following your gut instinct on something might feel scary or wrong, it always leads you exactly where you need to be. I like to remind myself of a quote which has stuck with me since I read it: “If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t!”


 

Amy: Perspective
Volunteering with senior citizens and disabled adults at a nursing home made me realize the importance of valuing each moment – each day that we wake up healthy and free and surrounded by friends and family. It makes daily annoyances and minor issues seem really petty!
 

Renee: Travel
Exploring not only everything this beautiful world has to offer, but also exploring what you are capable of. Wake up, have no plan at all, get lost in foreign spaces and discover new things. Traveling has taught me to take nothing for granted. To stop, take a minute and appreciate everything around you.

How To Host a Full Moon Party

a7529693-af38-4843-939d-c8a9d94b169e

…By hosting a Full Moon Party!

 

The energy of the new moon brings about a perfect time to energize your crystals, set new intentions, and cast away anything that no longer serves you. Full moons are symbolic of turning points, manifestations + closure.

 

During a Full Moon, the Moon is on the exact opposite side of the Earth from the Sun, bringing us a brightly lit spectacle. People used to plant, hunt, fish and even move by the seasons and cycles of the moon.

Living by the natural cycles of the universe and can keep you grounded and in a flow of abundance. Here are some simple steps to throwing your own Full Moon party:

 

1. Pick your venue:
Are you hosting the party in your home or outside? Lanterns, fairy lights, sparkly tinsel and starry decorations add moon-vibes to your indoor space. Drape your space in silver + white accents to bring light to outdoor settings. 
Tealight candles or a burning fireside will add a soft glow until the moonlight shines upon your party.

 

2. Recruit your Full Moon crew:
Rally together friends + family who motivate you, spark your soul and bring awareness. Invite those who may not be as spiritually advanced, too. You might be surprised and impressed by their Full Moon manifestations. 

 

3. Gather supplies:
Make sure you have everything you need for you + your guests to feel comfortable. Grab some note pads and pens for guests to manifest their intentions – or release baggage – by writing it down. After writing your intentions down, go around your circle of friends and share. Set up crystal grids with gemstones to direct cosmic energy towards a certain goal.
Cleanse your gemstones by placing them outside in the moonlight, or burn candles + smudge sticks to symbolize something you’re letting go of. Tarot cards are also a fun, spiritual activity you might wish to include.

 

4. Set the mood:
Cushions, blankets, incense burning, fire crackling. Play some soft, inspiring music and snack on fresh, detoxifying foods. Take your tribe on a stroll to watch the moon (or howl away!)

 

5. Place your written intentions somewhere sacred:

Perhaps it’s under your pillow, or placed neatly within a spiritual crystal altar. By writing your intentions down and verbally sharing them with friends, you hold yourself accountable to achieve them. The best part of this? It’s proven you’re actually more likely to achieve goals set this way. Take the time until the next New Moon or Full Moon to reflect upon how far you’ve come and what needs work.
