In times like these, I think of all the goddesses and I pray to them, and I ask them for guidance and strength. Yes, I plan to do things on the physical plane, but doing things like working with the goddess while all of our sisters call her down in some way or another tomorrow is just as important. This world is layered and what we do in every layer affects each other. Sometimes it's a ripple and other times, it's a storm.
"....Eris was Typhon's escort in the mellay, Nike led Zeus into battle . . . impartial Enyo held equal balance between the two sides, between Zeus and Typhon, while the thunderbolts with booming shots revel like dancers in the sky." - Nonnus, Dionysiaca 2. 358 & 2. 475 ff
"Many of [the soldiers battling at Troy] dyed the earth red: aye waxed the havoc of death as friends and foes were stricken. O'er the strife shouted for glee Enyo, sister of Ares." - Quintus Smyrnaeus, Fall of Troy 8. 424 ff
A genuine Scottish Morion Smoky Quartz Sphere gifted to me by my love. I wanted one of these magickal beauties for quite some time now and this one definitely does not disappoint. Just look at those rainbows!
Smoky Quartz is the national gem of Scotland, a country with the longest historical association with the stone. The Celts, who began colonizing the British Isles around 300 B.C., mined the brownish-gray Quartz in the Cairngorm Mountains of the Scottish highlands, calling the dark brown to black crystals they found Morion, and the yellow-brown to grayish-brown crystals Cairngorm after the mountains where they were located. These stones eventually became prominent adornment for Highlander apparel in the form of jewelry, shoulder brooches and kilt pins, and as power stones on the handles of weaponry. Smoky Quartz has been considered a sacred stone there for a long time, a belief dating back to the Druids.
Morion is a powerful variety of Smoky Quartz and it is said that the “True Morions” originated from high atop the Cairngorm Mountains in Scotland.
Morion crystals have a strong connection to the base/root chakra and have a strong "grounding energy" that can help you stay grounded. This stone is also great for activating the base/root chakra and detoxifying stagnant energy while increasing confidence and stability. Emotionally, Smoky Quartz is excellent for elevating moods, overcoming negative emotions, and relieving depression. Smoky Quartz relieves stress, fear, jealousy, anger and other negative emotions by transforming them into positive energies. It is a helpful stone for enhancing and encouraging courage, inner strength, and spiritual growth.
Rainbow Crystals are very good manifestation crystals – as they have all colors of the rainbow inside them. This means they stimulate every chakra, thus stimulating every creative level possible. The full spectrum of colors make it easier to bring these manifestations into physical reality.
Imbolc is just around the corner, and in preparations I wanted to add the lovely Votive Imbolc Ritual Candles by the lovely #SevenSistersRitual .
