Crystals and their Healing Uses

This is more a subjective question. The best crystal to use is more subjective and so it is best to go with intuition where possible. When reviewing Crystals, thinking of the person and then feeling with your gut for a response is one way; some use a pendulum . This being said there are often common solutions.
The Crystal Table below has been compiled from such common solutions. These references should be taken as reliable guide, but not the final word.

For further reading on the healing use of crystals I suggest reviewing books by the following Authors;

Spring Equinox, Ostara: Southern Hemisphere

Midway through Spring!
This is the time of equal day and equal night, the balance of light and dark,
and so at this time we have the chance to invite balance into our lives.

Add this to the energy of Spring, and as we see in our gardens, we also have the opportunity for new growth, fresh starts and new beginnings.  Now would be the appropriate time for the Easter Egg hunt!

The trees have come back to life, blossoms are blooming, the grass is growing, the sprouts are ‘taking off’, growth is everywhere! Beautiful smells, sprite-liness and baby animals…
During Spring, everywhere in nature, we see and feel and hear, the energy, the pulse, the sound of new growth.

And so we have the opportunity to consciously align with this energy
and ‘use’ it to fuel whatever new beginnings we are creating in our lives.

Your being, as part of the Earth, part of the cycle of the seasons…

Remembering September 11th, The Victims, The Heroes and The Loved One They Left Behind

Witches Of The Craft®

I stare in total disbelief,
heart torn with instant grief.
Plumes of black smoke fill the air,
marking a building no longer there.
I close my eyes, I want to pray,
but my mind doesn’t know what to say.
Much like Pearl harbor, so many years ago,
so many gone with one fatal blow.
There are no words to explain,
there are no words to ease the pain.
To those who gave their lives,
Mothers, Fathers, Husbands and Wives,
to all who’s lives today did cease,
may your soul find instant peace.
We will honor you and the life you gave,
as a Patriot of “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.”

Hurricane Prayers

While Hurricane Irma is the latest catastrophic storm to hit the USA within about five weeks let us not forget those who lived through and are trying to recover from Hurricane Harvey.

We have brother and sisters that are being or have been affected by the current and former hurricanes.  Both need our prayers and any other type of support we can give them. Supporting them can be as easy as places a message to the survivors in the comment section below. If you want to donate anything more materialistic find a reputable charity to donate money through. The reason I say money, not clothing or food is we are not in those peoples place so we do not know what they have need of the most. Plus shipping items into devastated areas can delay supplies that are most needed at any given time.

Dear Lady and Lord

Please be with our brothers and sisters

to keep them safe.

So mote it be.

In Irma path

I would like to request that we pray for all Floridians that are in the path of Irma. The prayers that I request is that they get sense on how bad it’s going to be and get to safety by leaving the area or get to a shelter before the storm arrives. I be seeing that some are hunkering down at their homes. I am personally praying to my Goddess and Gods for their safety in this upcoming disaster. I do have family in the target area where Irma is heading. Thank you in advance for doing this my sister and brothers.
Tharem

Good Friday Morning To All Our Dear Brothers & Sisters! May the Goddess Bless You & Yours Today & Always!

Witches Of The Craft®

The Witches Digest for Friday, September 8th

As we begin this day, I would ask you to remember our brothers & sisters in Florida and Texas. Keep them all in your thoughts & prayers in the days ahead.

We will be bright and fierce
Like the flame that burns
In the candle hot
We will be strong and grounded
Like the tumbled stone
That once was earth
We will be flexible and resilient
Like the water that flows
Always to return
We will be the essence of potential
Like the seed that waits
And grows when needed
We will endure
We will survive
We will triumph
And rise like the Phoenix
At the dawn of another day
With the help of the Gods
And our own determination
We will endure
And rise like the Phoenix.

So Mote It Be

History of Ostara – The Spring Equinox

MANY HOLIDAYS, MANY NAMES

The word Ostara is just one of the names applied to the celebration of the spring equinox on March 21. The Venerable Bede said the origin of the word is actually from Eostre, a Germanic goddess of spring. Of course, it’s also the same time as the Christian Easter celebration, and in the Jewish faith, Passover takes place as well. For early Pagans in the Germanic countries, this was a time to celebrate planting and the new crop season.

Typically, the Celtic peoples did not celebrate Ostara as a holiday, although they were in tune with the changing of the seasons.

According to History.com, “At the ruins of Chichen Itza, the ancient Maya city in Mexico, crowds now gather on the spring (and fall) equinox to watch as the afternoon sun creates shadows that resemble a snake moving along the stairs of the 79-foot-tall Pyramid of Kukulkan,…

Manannán mac Lir

Manannán Mac Lir was the legendary sea-god of the Tuatha Dé Danann. These were the people that lived in Ireland during the Bronze Age. He also appears in lots of the Scots and Manx ( Isle of Man ) mythology.
Manannán Mac Lir is said to have been the first ruler of the Isle of Man, and the Tuatha Dé Danann believed he had a great palace and throne there.

In fact, this is where he got his name, as ‘Manand’ is the Old Irish name for the Isle of Man. As his surname suggests, he was the son of Lir. Lir, meaning ‘sea’, was a great sea-god and it seems that Manannán eventually took over that role.
