To All CovenLife And WOTC Viewers
I ‘m Tharem a US Veteran. I have read a post from Lady A. about a US Veteran spent a night at the VA hospital in order to see a doctor. With a healthcare at the VA facility I go to has been really good that I seen. With that said, if I hear about one of my fellow veterans not getting help for some reason, I want to know so I can make sure that they get it. I am connected with many VA groups. I can say that the veteran who want help will get it. If you are a veteran, family member of the veteran, or know a veteran and are looking for help. Please contact me through my email. I will try to get the right group to help you/ them out. This is my way of paying forward for all the help that I have received and am still receiving. I consider all servicemembers are my brothers and sisters. Yes, I am putting out my email with the ok from Lady Beltane. it is firstname.lastname@example.org. This is to aid all veterans who needs help and want it. I will do my best to get you/them to the right people for the help they need.
Second thing is that there is one prime area that I see will help out all veterans out is that is the need and should get is Dental Care. I have a lot of medical coverage, but I do not have dental coverage. I believe there are other veterans who needs it and are not getting it.
To all my brother and sister of the craft, plus my Followers. I am going offline due to that I am moving to my new home this weekend. I will be finishing packing and be moving my stuff to the new house of mine. I will not be back online until October the 1st. this is when my internet will be back online at the new house. If you need me, please let LAdy Beltane know and she can get a hold of me.
Blessed be until then
Ametrine, also known as trystine or by its trade name as bolivianite, is a naturally occurring variety of quartz. It is a mixture of amethyst and citrine with zones of purple and yellow or orange. Almost all commercially available ametrine is mined only in Bolivia.
The colour of the zones visible within ametrine are due to differing oxidation states of iron within the crystal. The different oxidation states occur due to there being a temperature gradient across the crystal during its formation.

The name comes from the Koine Greek ἀμέθυστος amethystos from ἀ- a-, “not” and μεθύσκω methysko / μεθύω methyo, “intoxicate”, a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness. The ancient Greeks wore amethyst and carved drinking vessels from it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication.
It is one of several forms of quartz. Amethyst is a semiprecious stone and is the traditional birthstone for February

I’ve chosen Amber as the stone for Imbolc, even though this attractive gem is not a stone at all, but is, rather, an ancient fossilized tree resin that once flowed from the wound of a conifer. The pine trees from which Amber hails are no longer in existence, and the specimens of their once life-giving resins which we hold today are roughly between 25 – 50 million years old. I think it fitting that just as Imbolc which means “in the belly” and Oimelc (or Oimelg) which means “ewe’s milk” which has begun to flow… so, too, was Amber once in the belly of the tree whose essence flowed forth to gift us in its new form.
The name Amber derives from the Arabic word “ambar” which refers to ambergris, a secretion from the sperm whale which is used in making perfume. The only similarity between the two, though, is color, for they are without a doubt two totally separate things. Although both are often transported on the waves of the sea, it is this, along with their color similarity, which was most likely how the two may have been once confused. Amber registers only 2 to 2½ on the Mohs Scale and is light enough that it can float on salt water. And it does…for Amber is often found in or near the ocean, with its deposits existing in sediments along the shore. Its most prevalent locales are on the shores of the Baltic Sea, predominantly in Russia, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Germany. Other prominent Amber findings are in Mexico and the Dominican Republic.

Amber is fossilized tree resin, which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic times. Much valued from antiquity to the present as a gemstone, amber is made into a variety of decorative objects. Amber is used in jewelry. It has also been used as a healing agent in folk medicine.
There are five classes of amber, defined on the basis of their chemical constituents. Because it originates as a soft, sticky tree resin, amber sometimes contains animal and plant material as inclusions. Amber occurring in coal seams is also called resinite, and the term ambrite is applied to that found specifically within New Zealand coal seams.

In modern Paganism, many traditions use symbols as part of ritual, or in magic. Some symbols are used to represent elements, others to represent ideas. These are a few of the more commonly used symbols in Wicca and other forms of Paganism today.
