Full moon: 3rd/4th December. Will be at its fullest at about 4:46 am on Monday 4th of December. This moon, in particular, is very special as it is a Super Moon! It is the closest to the earth that it will be during the year, and can appear 7 – 14% larger than usual. The best time to see this magnificence is at Moon Rise. So head outside and soak up some Moon rays!
This month has been an odd one, I am a Sagittarius and for some reason, I have had so many feelings this month, and not all of them great. I have had some personal challenges and dealt with some friendship breakdowns and realisations. I have also stepped into my authentic self after only half doing it for a long time. I heard a great analogy the other day, it was about getting up early to go for a run. You set the alarm for say 530am, and say “I am going to go to the gym in the morning..” but there is still that little voice in your head that says, but you don’t really need to get up and go to the gym.. and the alarm goes off and before you know it you have turned it off, closed your eyes and you aren’t going anywhere except back to dreamland. That is what it has felt like I have been doing with myself, switching the alarm off for just one more day instead of authentically stepping into me. After last months subscription box, that was the confirmation for me. It is time, to step up, step in. So, while this is happening you may not see me as much on social media, but I am still here! Just finding my voice again, and with that said – this month's crystals again have been a real testament as to what has been going on for me. I picked up the Soldalite and Kyanite a while ago, it has been playing on my mind a while but I've just been holding onto them till it felt right, I recently added the Aquamarine and am so pleased I did. I am still learning to trust my intuition, leaning into it, it amazes me every time I begin my research on the crystals I have chosen just how accurately they reflect my life at the time, I hope they do the same for you.
Sodalite – rough large piece
Chakra: Throat Sign: Sagittarius Planet: Venus
Sodalite is a powerful high vibe stone, it unites logic and intuition, opens spiritual perception and brings the higher mind back into the body. This stone stimulates the pineal and pituitary glands, two of the most important hormone releasing structures in the body. The pineal gland is located near the 3rd eye, and its primary function is to release melatonin, the hormone we need for sleep! The pituitary gland is located at the bottom of the hypothalamus at the base of the brain and does many wonderful things.
Hormones secreted by the pituitary gland help control: growth, blood pressure, certain functions of the sex organs, thyroid glands and metabolism as well as some aspects of pregnancy, childbirth, nursing, water/salt concentration at the kidneys, temperature regulation and pain relief. The pituitary gland also releases the chemical oxytocin, a really really important pleasure chemical! Anyway, enough of the science lesson. It also helps to deepen meditation, and instills a drive for truth and an urge towards idealism. Sodalite enoucrages being true to yourself, eliminating any confusion. It is also useful for releasing core fears and control mechanisms, as well as integrating shadow qualities into your life safely.
Chakra: Opens throat and 3rd eye Sign: Aries, Gemini, Pisces
Such a beautiful stone as we enter into summer, Aquamarine, often associated with the Goddess of the Sea, who also happens to be one of my favourite goddess’s Aphrodite. Aphrodite is the Goddess of Love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. Aquamarine is a great stone for understanding underlying emotional states and interpreting how you feel. It clarifies information and helps to still the mind.
Chakra: Opens throat Sign: Aries, Taurus, Libra
Kyanite is excellent for attunement and meditation, it is a powerful transmitter and amplifier of high-frequency energies. Kyanite never needs cleaning/clearing. Kyanite is a great stone for doing work on your present self looking at past behaviours. It is drawn to the light and is useful if you are working in the shadow to keep you grounded. It also clears meridians, restores Qi (Chi) to the body and stabilises the biomagnetic field. Kyanite encourages speaking one’s truth and cutting through fears and blockages.
