" Historically, Agate has been discovered with the artifacts of Neolithic people, and was used as healing amulets and ornamentation dating back to Babylon. Its medicinal uses continued through the ancient Greek and Egyptian civilizations, and spread throughout Africa and the Middle East into Russia. Agate sparked a world renowned stonecutting and polishing industry in Germany that flourished from the 15th to the 19th century, and exists today. [Simmons, 6][Mella, 67-68]
Metaphysically, Agate has a lower intensity and vibrates to a slower frequency than other stones, but is highly regarded as a stabilizing and strengthening influence. [Simmons, 6] The layered bands of microscopic quartz in Agate may appear delicate, they are actually very strong. Agate is excellent for balancing emotional, physical and intellectual energy, and in harmonizing yin and yang, the positive and negative forces of the universe. [Hall, 39] " For more information check out https://www.crystalvaults.com/crystal-encyclopedia/agate
One of my favorite new books for learning how to truly livea and understand your natural rythmn. 🌿If you're like me and don't feel as "alive" or "happy" as perhaps everyone else is during summer, or not as depressed as most people are in the winter (relative terms) - this book as helped me understand my personal seasons. By charting out my natal chart and with dates of what I am feeling around each time I move through a natal house, I'm able to click it all into place with more conscious awareness. I've been incorporating it into my natal chart reasons so recently and I feel like it adds an extra layer of understanding✨
Pulled a quick to two-card reading to get a feel for this deck, these are just quick interps. Also, I totally thought the King of Swords was holding a vibrator.
What can I learn from you?
KING OF SWORDS
The fact that Valraven (in the booklet) is said to understand the mystery of the Triple Goddess was pretty on point with my current focus right now. I've been deep diving into the Triple Goddess for the past two weeks. In fact, just this morning I was talking to @thatlunarwitch about Hecate and the Triple Goddess.
What is out potential working relationship?
ACE OF COINS
Potential growth if used abundantly. There is a chance for some strong roots to be formed between this deck and I. I feel like this deck will be great for study, so the time I spend working with it will be fruitful.
So in love with my Datura. She just keeps on blooming and showing off. I'm a firm believer that plants talk to us. That they ask us to care for them. That they have medicine to give and simply by being around them we receive that medicine. Datura is not one to injest...she's too fierce for us to take internally. But she's one of the witch's plants for sure. There is much medicine in the dark, the shadows and the underworld. There is much medicine in the gateways to those realms. And there is so much beauty in this gatekeeper of a plant.
Good afternoon my darling Lights- The energies around us are manifesting for our greater good, it may feel as if YOU hit a brick wall. As if YOU found YOURSELF right in the middle of an unexpected disaster, resulting in feeling betrayed, hurt, and powerless. Please keep in mind this is just a temporary state of flux. You are given this spiritual path because it is YOUR BIRTH RIGHT. Focus on YOUR self care and instabilities to create the breakthrough and clarity that is ready for YOU to embark upon. This maybe a time where YOU are too busy in YOUR life, overwhelmed by responsibilities. If YOU do not take control of this situation YOU could be on the receiving end of destructive and uncontrolled forces which will always guide and lead YOU to YOUR inner harmony. •
Othala- What is truly important to one, spiritual heritage, experience and fundamental values. Aid in spiritual and physical journeys.
Dagaz- Breakthrough, awakening, awareness. A time to plan or embark upon an enterprise, transformation. Balance point, the place where opposites meet.
Hagalaz- destructive, uncontrolled forces, or within the unconscious, trial. Controlled crisis, leading to completion, inner harmony.•
Ten of Swords- unexpected disaster, betrayed, victim, powerless, vulnerability, endings, pain.
Ten of Pentacles Reversed- instabilities, ultimate commitment, temporary state of flux, failure on a financial level, poor foundation.
Two of Pentacles Reversed- very busy, overwhelmed by responsibilities, need to bring structure to your day to day, not managing your work and family. 🧘🏾♀️🧘🏾♀️🙏🏽🔮💕 #runestones#runestonereadings#runestonesreader#tarotcards#tarot#tarotreading#tarotreadersofinstagram#manifestation#manifest#meditation#meditate#higherconsciousness#higherself#witchesofinstagram#witchcraft#divination#reikihealing#reikihealersofinstagram#lightworker#lightworkersofinstagram#alchemy#alchemist#astrologer#astrologersofinstagram
