March Birthstone – Aquamarine

 

For those born in the month of March, the official gemstone is the Aquamarine. It can range in color from a very pale shade, almost colorless, which is also the most valuable, to a most sought-after deep-blue aqua. Some of the ranges in color could be due to its ability to darken permanently with heat due to its amount of iron, which is considered to be an impurity. In knowing this however, it is important to know that the gems do not alter in quality at this point, but only in appearance. These can be heat treated to create a pure blue from a blue-green or teal. Its name originates, quite understandably, from the Latin words meaning water and sea.

The month of March is the time of year in which the world makes a shift renewing life and even creating new life. It is a time when all of us must shed our winter skin, cleanse our bodies of many of the heavy foods we consumed throughout the cold winter months that now slow us down. Many clean their homes, change their home decorations for brighter, fresher colors and textures. It is a time to refresh one’s life and mentality. One who possesses the Aquamarine can draw energy from it’s beautiful, fresh color, opening their hearts and minds for a new season.

During the Middle Ages, aquamarine was believed to gift its owner with a decrease in the effects of an inflicted poison, induce cheerfulness and compose the mind and heart. For older married couples, it gave them the inspiration to reawaken and rekindle their love. But even before, the Egyptians and Hebrews loved and cherished the aquamarine. Its brilliant color represents the sea and the air, identified with the apostle, St.Thomas, who made long journeys by sea to preach salvation. From this, sailors were known to wear this preventing seasickness and guide them safely on their voyages. The Amethyst has been considered the gift from mermaids aiding sailors at sea safety.

The powers of this stone have been known to grant revelations to aid in the search for lost things in one’s life. For those with complications of the liver, stomach, throat and jaws, the wearing of an aquamarine could bring relief. To its bearer, it can quicken your intelligence and intellect, cure laziness, and instill courage. The Romans believed that by wearing this gem one would absorb young love and its aura, and “When blessed and worn, it joins in love, and does great things”. It has also been carved into a crystal ball used in fortune-telling.

Aquamarine has been found in Brazil, also known as the Land of Aquamarine Stone.In 1910, the largest crystal of Aquamarine was mined there, weighing 243 pounds. It has also been found in Siberia, India, and in North Carolina of the United States. However, Madagascar is considered the historical source of the aquamarine, where medium to dark stones were found.

Banishment Spell

I personally used this spell once about eight years ago and have not heard anything from the person since. I banishes a person, who lives or at least at the time lived in another state, whom I had been friends with for about 3-4 years because the relationship was toxic for my mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. I first tried the everyday routes refusing her phone calls, returning letters unopen, deleting emails without opening them, etc, after telling her not to contact me again more than once. I do not use dark magic at all or gray magic very often, but this was a time for gray magic to be used if I was to have her out of my life completely. After the ashes cooled I put everything, the metal and stones plus ashes into a plastic bag took it to a woods and buried it all except the plastic bag which I threw away in a garbage can that sits on the main street in town. This way nothing was disposed of near my home.
“This is a fire spell for love gone wrong, for ending personal, family or business relationships that you no longer wish to continue. I wrote it years ago as an anti-stalking spell and have not been troubled by or even laid eyes on the spell’s subject since then. To work the spell you will need:
Herbs of protection
An image of the person (photograph, poppet, etc.); something written in their own hand, a lock of hair, a piece of clothing or personal object will also do. [Their full name, if you know it, written on a piece of paper]
Arrange your altar or working surface in your usual way. Raise power and cast a circle. Put everything into a fire proof container-iron cauldron or marble mortar, for instance- and set fire to it as you perform the spell. Add the photograph or a piece of paper with the person;s name on it if you have trouble getting the fire going. It should make a very saisfactory blaze that reduces everything to ashes. If you have a lot of items from this person to get rid of, you can use a bonfire for the spell and feed them all into it. [I used our fireplace outside when I did it].
By the crimson and the gold
By basilisk and bloodstone
By the garlic in the fields
By the poppies and what they yield
Invisibly I make my shield
To direct thee and deflect thee
And keep harm from me.
By dragon’s blood and salamanders
By horses when the hooves strike sparks
By the dragon breathing flames
From the Book of Life I erase thy names
I cut the cords and unlock the chains
I sever all the ties by which we were bound
And with impenetrable walls myself I surround
Against thy power and its source
Against thy evil and its force
Vesta, Pele, Lillth
KAli KAli KAli
I banish thee forever from me
And any harm from thee to me
Doubles back and tables turned
Thou shalt by thyself be burned
Lillth, Vesta, Pele
KAli MA Kali MA
By the power of three times three
I banish thee, I banish thee, I banish thee
I am set free
So mote it be!
The ashes can be buried or washed down a drain. Flush them down a toilet if very angry. Dispose of all objects that connect you to the person: gifts, letters, photographs, and the like. It is especially important to get rid of jewelry. Move if you have to. [Remember I am quoting from a book I don’t really think or believe you have to move.].
 
Be careful with this spell. It’s permanent, so don’t use it unless you really mean forever. It’s also powerful. The person I used it against had a pregnant wife, and I learned later their child had heart problems. The last I heard of him, he was having a quadruple bypass operation.”
