Not Just Any New Year’s Eve

Hibiscus Moon Crystals 10 Comments

I know I keep talking about this, but this is just too damn exciting! My 13th wedding anniversary, New Year’s Eve ushering in “twenty ten”, a Blue Moon and a partial lunar eclipse all in one night. Woohoo! Yes, tonight’s Blue Moon is so, so special b/c it will dip into Earth’s shadow for a partial lunar eclipse in some countries. Even though I won’t be seeing it here in the US the energy is still awesome for all of us! The Partial Lunar Eclipse in conjunction with the Full Moon and Blue Moon will make for a rare and powerful moment for spell casting and/or cleansing. I will, of course, be cleansing my personal crystals and stones letting them be cleared and soak up this powerful energy. Perhaps I can convice hubby to take all the crystals to the beach tonight to get the extra boost from the negative ions present there. Oh my, what a cleasne that will be! If I throw beer and/or champagne into the deal, he’ll say “yes”. :) Mischevious thinking while typing here.
Check out this awesome animation of the partial eclipse here. Some Native Americans refer to this Full Moon as the Snow Moon.

This was a Full Moon crystal cleanse of a few select personal crystals of mine from a year ago:

I am thinking of reopening my Etsy Shop on Jan. 4th. That will give me almost a full month of reconnecting with my customers. Unfortunately, I think I will have to temp. close again from February through perhaps April while I take some necessary coursework. Working full time, takeing 5 courses and running my crystal shop all at the same time will be totally impossible. So, I will have to take that little hiatus. Please sign up for my newsletter (at right) for updates on this.

OK, Happy New Year & Blessed Blue Snow Moon Partial Eclipse!
“And we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.”

Blue Moon

For the 1st time in 20 years there will be a Blue Moon on New Year’s Eve, which also happens to be my wedding anniversary!!!! :)

There are several definitions of a Blue Moon, but today’s most common one is the 2nd full moon in a calendar month and since that doesn’t happen too often, it tends to refer to something that happens rarely. So Happy New Year and Enjoy!

Here’s my vid of this event:

Crystal Balls

Hibiscus Moon Crystals, divination 5 Comments

I know you may automatically think of a gypsy-type psychic with her crystal ball in a dark room. However, not everyone who uses a crystal ball is a gypsy or psychic. Some just like to appreciate its beauty as a display piece in the home or garden. Some prefer them to just diffuse their energy into a space. Others, however, do like to use them for divination.

Not too long ago, a very good customer of mine asked if the manmade lead crystal balls were any less effective for divination than a natural clear quartz crystal ball. As far as the leaded crystal balls go, they aren’t “bad”, just not nearly as powerful as a pure quartz crystal ball created by the Earth. However, a pure quartz crystal ball is usually quite expensive, but well worth the price if put to good use and used properly. They’re priceless and very powerful objects, unmatched by a leaded crystal ball.

Low Energy, Low Motivation Remedy: Crystal Grid

OK, I need to get off of the ‘puter and get motivated to take a shower and get on with my day. I took my carnelian pendant off and my energy is back down again. Sheesh! Not sure what is going on. So I’ll be carrying a large carnelian stone with me today and hope that infuses me with energy to stay! Then again, I read somewhere that this may be part of my birthday cycle. That I will stay unmotivated until after my birthday when my energy will be at its peak again. I hope this is the case. I usually don’t feel this lazy!
This is how I ended up remedying the situation. Crystal Grid to the rescue!

Sky Show Tonight & Winter Solstice

Hibiscus Moon astronomy, Everyday/Personal Stuffs, Mother Earth 7 Comments

Don’t miss the beauty tonight at sunset. Jupiter and the Waxing Crescent Moon will be side-by-side in the southwestern sky! Jupiter is at about the 10 o’clock position to the Moon. Here’s a map.

All day, I’ve been wishing everyone a Merry Winter Solstice thinking it was today. *slaps forehead* It’s tomorrow. I’m happy about that actually. :) This weekend was a wash for me. I just laid around, got very little done. Nothing in the way of housework or my to-do list. I just read, PJ’ed, watched movies and slept a lot. I really needed some decompression time I suppose. I am going to wear my carnelian pendant for a few days to re-energize myself. *note to self*. I have lots to get done (and want to do) just for fun while I am off from work so time to kick into high-gear!

Did you catch it? I forgot to post about it. Shoot! Last night the Earth passed through a stream of debris from a now extinct comet: Phaethon. This comet is the reason for the annual Geminid meteor shower. Looking towards the constellation of Gemini, you should have been able to catch a glimpse of 100 or so meteors per hour. The shower actually peaked last night and this morning. Oh well, hope you caught it.

…but I had to post this. A customer of mine sent me this message regarding her pendulum:

“by septlady profile shop contact

Hello, I know this is probably unusual,but I ordered a amethyst pendulem from you awhile back and thought you might like to know that I have had the most wonderful results with it!

To begin, my Uncle lives on a sailboat in the carribean. He is very good at keeping in contact with my mother by email. About two months ago she quit getting emails from him. She was on the verge of contacting the Coast Guard to do a welfare check on him. I had a map of the area he was supposed to be in and I used my pendulem to locate him. By my reading he was in or near San Blas. I contacted my Mom and told her what I thought. Two days later she forwarded me an email that my Uncle had sent her, and sure enough in this email he said that for the last 3 days he had been anchored in San Blas!

“After you left a spent a few days in Portobelo filling fuel, water, and making one more grocery run. I bought some lettuce and tomatoes and am still having salad for lunch every day or so. Then I wandered back toward the San Blas, spending a couple of days in Linton. For the last few days I have been hanging out in the East Lemons and eating on Mr G’s island. Last night we had a lobster dinner for 5 dollars. There were about 20 people there, including the crew and owner of a 120 foot megayacht.”

Just wanted to thank you for your wonderful product and I will surely be ordering from you in the future!!

Blessed Be,

Hi SeptLady!

Thank you so much for senidng me this story. Its amazing. I am so happy to hear this. This is also a testimonial to your skills and gift, as I’m sure you already know. I just did a blog about using a pendulum in this very same way. Would you mind if I posted this on my blog? Not to worry if you do mind. I completely understand.

(((HUGS))) to you and many blessings,

Hello again!

I would not mind at all if you posted my message. As for my “talents” I credit most of the results to your product. This was only the second time in 8 years of learning my path that I actually tried any type on divination.

Thanks again.
Blessed Be
