Amethyst is one of the most powerful stones working with the Violet Flame of transmutation. As a rule all stones and crystals with violet colour carry the energies of the Violet Flame that transmutes the shadowy energies into light and beneficial energies. The article below is about stones that carry these transmuting powers. I am sharing it with you with thanks to :
Healing With Violet Flame Stones
Amethyst and other stones associated with this energetically potent method of healing, are some of the most common stones used by healers.
Healing with these stones is so powerful that it and other violet ray stones are very popular with both alchemical and crystal healers.

They are the most strongly associated with this energy, as Amethyst Crystals are the foremost stones of the violet flame.
The very essence of the Amethyst stones will heal on many levels, both within the physical, metaphysical and etheric levels of your being.
The specific frequency of these powerful quartz crystals allow one to feel calm, soothed and contented, yet intellectually stimulated and protected. Using it makes you feel that you are beautifully protected, and you are.
One of the less well known facts about Amethyst and other violet stones is that they embody the vibration of the Violet Flame, brought to renown by Saint Germaine.

Current Moon Phase for August 30th
The Moon today is in a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts round 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon will rise in the east in mid-afternoon and will be high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible though most of the night sky setting a few hour before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has it’s roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.
The Witches Digest for Wednesday, August 30 – (Part 2 )
It’s a dynamic week with both the Mars in Cancer and Sun in Cancer making squares to Uranus in Aries. This is the energy of breakthroughs, breakdowns, impatience, aggressive anger, big outbursts, and an immediate desire to ACT.
Keep in mind that whatever is frustrating, triggering, or getting to you this week is a message that is meant to PUSH you through to the other side of something so you’re no longer on the fence. We are meant to be changing and making decisions this week about what we want NEXT – and sometimes, discomfort has to come up to get our attention. Discomfort is actually a very clear messenger – so trust that it is happening for a reason.
We can misinterpret the discomfort, frustration, or trigger to be more than it is. We can think it is too big, or too much, or we’re not sure what to do – hence, the anger and impulsiveness can come up out of frustration with ourselves.
Look at what you NEED that has been unspoken, untouched, and unacknowledged. It may be something from childhood… or when you were unsure how to communicate or express something about yourself. It can also feel highly personal and subjective, as it’s one of those unconscious patterns that keeps popping up or showing you something you need to claim and work with it a higher level of understanding. Have you been holding yourself back?
Change is the theme – so what is calling you to evolve? What is so dang uncomfortable that you don’t want to keep spinning in it and you want to set YOURSELF free?
Do that. And if you’re not sure HOW yet, the incoming Leo energy will give you the courage, heart, and drive to take those next steps.
Take time to sit with yourself and ask what you need to change and what you want next… and the upcoming New Moon this weekend will help show you the way forward as we enter eclipse season. Change is in the air (yet again!) and the more honest you can be about your truest desires, the easier it will be for you and the Universe/God/Spirit/Source to help you get there. ❤
As above, so below.
As within, so without.
I share more energy and astrology updates on my new Facebook page:
We’re on the other side of a game-changing Full Moon in Capricorn – need a breather and a break?
Take one and rest up as we prepare to shift energies big time in August. The Sun in Cancer supports as much self-care as you need, although it will be making a square to Uranus in Aries shortly and a pleasing trine to Chiron in Pisces.
We enter eclipse season soon, so enjoy any downtime while you can because life speeds up with intensity and momentum in August.
Every Wednesday, we discuss the energies of right now and what’s coming up with the planets in the week ahead so you can have a heads up about how to consciously + powerfully work with the energies in your life and in your chart.

ASTROLOGICAL UPDATE: FULL MOON IN SCORPIO MAY 10, 2017
Scorpio is the fixed water sign ruled by both the planet Mars and Pluto. This is a highly charged full moon in two fixed signs (Sun in Taurus and Moon in Scorpio) signifying the need to breakdown long -held emotional, psychological and physical patterns. Scorpio has the capacity to move from the lowest depths to the highest peaks. It is the spirit of the Phoenix, which rises from the spiritual fire of its own ashes to be reborn into something new. Wherever a “system” is stuck (whether government, economic, religious or personal), it is time to let go, forgive, and move on to create something new. Nothing in this universe remains stagnant for very long. Change and growth is inevitable.
This Full Scorpio Moon shakes us out of complacency offering yet another opportunity to let go of old beliefs, situations and circumstances that do not match our inner truth. The Scorpio moon is a great time to indulge in some quiet reflection on your own; schedule a massage, treat yourself to an astrology reading, meditate and honor your inner world. Just spending a few minutes “moon-gazing” is a wonderful way to recharge your psychic batteries.

This is a great read and explains so much of why we are feeling torn in so many directions and in so many ways.
Brightest Blessings Sisters and Brothers,
The beginning of fall brings us eclipse season! Ready or not, powerful energies will be surging through in September to push us forward on our individual and collective paths. Eclipses are intense connections between the Sun, Moon, and Lunar Nodes that occur only twice a year, so there is an added charge of potentials, change, breakthroughs, and developments in September.
Join me and fellow soul astrologer Dominique Jaramillo as we talk about the Solar Eclipse on September 1 at 9 deg Virgo, and the Lunar Eclipse on September 16 at 24 deg Pisces. Grab your astrology chart to see where these are showing up for you!
Plus, we have Mercury retrograde in Virgo through most of September as back-to-school and sports activities get underway – keep those to-do lists and calendars in pencil!
Dominique is an astrologer, wife and mother to a sweet Pisces boy. She is deeply committed to her roles in this life and yet always working hardest at not taking it all too seriously (Sun in Aquarius in 8th house). She offers readings and astrology tshirts on her website Duality and Beyond.
