Black Onyx for Saturday

Merry Meet

 

Saturday is under the influence of the planet Saturn. Saturday is a day to work for  justice, defence, breaking curses , unhealthy relationships and reversals.

The energy of Black Onyx can help you bring protection into your life. Colour black prevents from energy leaking and makes you invisible for unwanted energies. This stone will build strong will within you if you are a person that finds it difficult to be strong enough to say NO when neccessary. This stone needs to be worn for a long time to start working with you, but once this is achieved you will become  a kind of leader for others/ or just a leader of your own life, that is a rather good option in all cases/ and you will develop strong will. This is what I know for Black Onyx. I will put it into some words : Strength, Protection, Defence, Invisibility, Success.

Blessed Be

Emit the Green Ray Of Nature Itself

EmeraldNatural Emerald Stone

 This heart chakra based energy makes them known as a stone of successful and abundant love.

By helping you to let go of negativity, natural Emerald crystals will create positive actions and outcomes, and give you the strength to overcome any problems in your life.

Within all of nature, in the plants and the grass and the trees you can see this clear green color, and the energy of the green ray.

The energy of nature itself is embodied within stones that carry the green ray, like Emerald stones. These beautiful crystals emit the green ray, a vibration that will open the heart chakra and draw love into your life.

This lovely stone has many excellent qualities, which is why it was chosen to be a May birthstone and is commonly used in engagement rings, as it has a strong loving vibration.

They are stones of manifestation, and although today’s society seems to concentrate on the attributes of manifesting things, including money, this stone brings through much more.

If you desire to use this stone to help you to manifest loving attributes, good health and a peaceful, loving and harmonious existence, or to learn how to stay happy, you might like to have this stone in your life.

Of course it will manifest abundance as well as money, and you all know that of course money is necessary in life.

The green ray is embodied within these lovely stones, and it encourages you to have respect for all life and all of creation.

As you feel this respect within you, it may prompt you to live life in a more loving way.

You may find that your love and emotions begin to resonate with Divine Love.

This is the purest and highest form of love in existence, and you begin living your life from a spiritual, heart based perspective.

Feelings such as compassion, hope, loyalty, encouragement, reassurance, gentleness, kindness, goodness and of course unconditional love, are connected with these emotions, and with all the blessings that are in your life.

 I love emerald gemstones and wear one in my engagement ring every day, but for their metaphysical attributes to benefit you don’t need an expensive stone.

All Emerald stones, including rough or natural pieces like the ones shown here, emit this energy and have an effect on the emotions that are within you.

It will still give you the powerful metaphysical properties that are embodied in this stone but at a lower cost.

SunRay Sorceress’s Musings

Weather Overload

The Pacific Northwest has had some wild weather. We’ve had rain, then hard rain and then very hard rain. We’ve had high wind gust warnings of 45 miles per hour, with hail and then more rain. 
I do love all this wild weather, it allows my spirit to feel invigorated and my spirit wants to fly free, but I also feel  overwhelmed with so much stimulation. I am so grateful to my Spirit Guides and Lady Beltane for being alert enough to say, “Hey, something’s going on! Wake up!”
That was done by her asking if I was okay on Saturday. 💜 I hadn’t realized until that moment that I was trying to protect my self from Sensation Overload, by blocking every sensation out and hiding in a type of shell. So today’s plan, I will focus on grounding and getting in touch with what this weather is saying to me. 
I’m curious if anyone else feels like this and what do you do when you have weather overload or sensation overload.
Bright Blessings Sisters and Brothers,
SunRay Sorceress

Norse 101: The Sky

The Norse sky is a bit different from other pantheons.  The Sun is feminine while the Moon is masculine.  Sunna, the Sun Goddess, pulls the sun across the sky in Her chariot.  Her brother, Mani, pulls the Moon in His chariot.  Their sister, Sinthgunt, is a Goddess of the flow of time and of twilight.  Their father, Mundilfari, is the Keeper of Time.  The story of how They came to govern Their stations is rather sad, to me.  Sunna and Mani were born in Midgard.  They were such beautiful children that Mundilfari named Them after the sun and moon themselves.  According to the story, the Gods saw this as incredibly presumptuous on Mundilfari’s part, so They took the children and placed Them in charge of pulling the sun and moon across the sky.  To make sure that Sunna and Mani stay on track and on time, Their chariots are pursued by two Wolves, Hati and Skoll (who are thought to be children of Fenrir’s).  The lore describes this relationship as antagonistic, but my personal experience is a bit different.  I get that the relationships between Sunna and Skoll, and Mani and Hati are more of a working type.  Hati seems to have His work cut out for Him as Mani’s personal assistant because Mani really enjoys watching us down here on Earth.  Mani has been known to lose track of time when He pops down for a visit, and it’s Hati’s job to make sure Mani returns to His duty and keeps the Moon moving as it should.  One really sweet story about Mani involves two children who were mistreated by their family.  Mani has a huge soft spot for children, so He rescued the two kids from their terrible situation.  Some say that the children ride with Him in the chariot. Mani is a soft, quiet, sensual God while Sunna is bright, warm, and powerful.

Nott is the Goddess of Night. She is a wise Goddess and the maternal grandmother of Thor.  Her son, Daeg, is the God of Day.  Daeg’s father is Delling, a God of Dawn.  Another of Nott’s children is Njord, who is Freyr and Freyja’s father.

Mundilfari, Mani, Sunna, Sinthgunt, and Nott are jotnar, or giants.  Daeg is half-giant and half-elf, since His father Delling is Alfar, or elf.  Hati and Skoll are jotnar.  So again, you’ll see that not all jotnar are bad.  That’s all for today, lovelies.  See you next Freyja’s Day!

Mani: MAH-nee
