Here is the next feature on natural gemstones for the Les Trois Fleurs… Artistic Muse blog. I confess that I am a little late on this one! I was taken over for a few weeks by tax and show preparation. During March, the Sun moved into Aries. Aries naturally rules the 1st house, the house of new beginnings, of the Astrological natural wheel. Remember that the energy last month was about cleaning up unfinished business. And if you did, you now have a clean slate for your “new beginning” this month. I live in Northeast Ohio. Spring came here very early with unseasonably warm weather. Flowering trees and bulbs appeared almost instantly so the energy of Aries is in full bloom where I live. If you have felt an urge to start something new then you are experiencing the energy of Aries.   

Aries has manifested in my life an urge to work with gemstones. When I was a little girl in grade school, I had my first boyfriends. We played at becoming engaged. I would ask for a ruby or emerald engagement ring which they would buy at the local gum ball machine. I made myself a promise then that when I “grew up”, I would someday own a real ruby. I had the great fortune a few years ago to buy a ruby ring in India at a wonderful jeweler right outside of the Taj Mahal. The trip to India was very transformational for me and there were many “new beginnings” for me as a result of that trip.   

There are many stones that vibrate to the Astrological sign of Aries. Here is a list compiled from different resources: Crazy Lace Agate, Fire Agate, Aquamarine, Green Aventurine, Axinite, Citrine, Emerald, Hematite, Herderite, Kunzite, Kyanite, Magnesite, Phlogopit, Sardonyx, and Sunstone. This month’s feature will focus on Green Aventurine and Citrine.   

Green Aventurine   

Aventurine Around Handmade Bracelet

 

  The word “Aventurine” sounds like “adventuring” which is very Arian. This stone is said to give adventure and luck. Yet Aventurine is known to be a Heart Chakra stone. It can be used to clear, activate, and protect the Heart Chakra. It is also beneficial for balancing the different bodies – bodies meaning mental, emotional, physical, and auric. Other keywords for Aventurine include: healing, money, creativity, mental agility, visual acuity, peace, heart opening, motivation, courage, independence, and leadership. I’ve read that you can leave the stone in water overnight and then use the water to bathe the eyes and skin to sooth irritations. Green Aventurine vibrates to the number 3 and the Astrological Sign of Aries.   

Citrine   

You will often hear me say, “This is one of my favorite stones”. Part of my passion is working with stones and as a result I fall in love with each one very easily. Citrine is one of my favorites. I have a large Citrine crystal at Les Trois Fleurs as my “merchant stone”. I use it to draw in the energies of prosperity and abundance into my business. This is an exercise of consistently visualizing, emoting and acting in a way that is opulent until it becomes a natural part of my expression. And also trusting that the universe will respond to my efforts to manifest this in my life. These three levels – mental, emotional, and physical – help to anchor my intent as a trinity of energy. Citrine is also beneficial for problem solving, mental awareness, and motivation – all good for planning and then implementing a plan. It also encourages the emotional balance and self-assurance needed when your convictions are being tested (great for issues with anger). One of the great aspects of this stone is that is dissipates and transmutes negativity and does not need cleansing. Many stones absorb and accumulate the negative energy until cleansed.  Citrine vibrates to the number 6 and the Astrological Signs of Gemini, Aries, Libra, and Leo.
