Rose Quartz in the Morning Light

Good morning everyone and welcome back to Crystal Thursday. We are talking about a member of the Quartz family today, Rose Quartz. It surprises me that I haven’t discussed any of the Quartz family crystals yet, it’s a very large family!

Rose Quartz has quite a long history. Beads have been found in Iraq dating back 7000 years. The Assyrians are thought to be the first to find and use it. The Greeks and Romans also appreciated its lovely color. The Romans used it to make seals showing personal ownership of items, or people perhaps. The ancient Egyptians believed it prevented aging. The might have been on to something. Those face rollers are supposed to help reduce puffiness and wrinkles!

Here is the United States it was discovered in Custer South Dakota in the 1880’s and then in Maine in the early 1900’s. Since they both take credit as the first discovery, I thought I’d mention both finds. Aside from the US Rose Quartz is mined in several countries around the world such as Brazil, India, Madagascar, Germany, Namibia, and Canada.

Its name tells us what color this crystal is and that is shades of opaque to translucent pink. It resonates beautifully with the Heart Chakra and comes in at a strong 7 on the Mohs scale of hardness.

When people start collecting crystals and minerals Rose Quartz is one of the first chosen for purchase. Its energy is gentle, nurturing and very much about love. Not just romantic love, but love of all kinds. As a tool for personal growth it encourages self love and compassion.

Now let’s get to the fun stuff and discuss the metaphysical qualities of this beauty:

  • Wearing or carrying a piece with you encourages love to come into your life.
  • It’s said to help conception.
  • It opens people to love
  • It eases the nerves and emotions.
  • Removes negativity and anger.
  • Helps restore trust.
  • Placing pieces around your home encourages a peaceful, loving home life.
  • Placed by your bed encourages romance.
  • Placed under your pillow helps you have a peaceful nights rest.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this brief look at Rose Quartz. If the qualities of this stone resonate with you I encourage you to purchase a piece and work with it. Keep in mind I am not a doctor and sharing the healing qualities of this stone is in no way giving medical advice. Working with it can help but if you are ill see your medical practitioner of choice.

Until Next Time…
Blessed Be ❤ Sharon

Today’s Daily Draw

Change is the universe daring us to shake up our world and get moving. It’s not always easy, or something we look forward to. We humans like to be cozy in our comfort zones. Life though, is meant to be a challenge, to be celebrated and experienced. The card that came to us today tells us the winds of change are beginning to blow. This means that it’s time for us to get ready.

Change generally requires us to be willing to let go of something. Our card, Shift Your Energy, is asking us to take a look at our lives. Are there beliefs or habits that no longer serve our highest good or who we are becoming? Are there people we have unfinished business with or we need to forgive? Have we been telling ourselves that it’s time to begin taking better care of ourselves? Do we have things we no longer need or use that someone else might be thankful to have? Letting go gives us the space to bring the new.

Our bottom card is the Renewal of Peace. This card lets us know clearing things from our physical and emotional lives that we no longer need, will open to new and better things and give us a sense of peace that we may not have had for some time.

This is a time of self love. Don’t be afraid to take a hard look at what might need to change and then be willing to make it. Do something nice for yourself today. Remember, life may not be easy but we aren’t meant to spend it being miserable or unfulfilled.

Today’s Universal Number

We have a Two Day today.The energy of this number is quite intuitive, and nurturing. It’s about compromise, and partnership. Our interactions with other might require us to be willing to give a little in order to a place of agreement. Let your intuition guide you.

Today’s Crystals

For clearing and self love nothing is better, in my opinion, than the Quartz family. I chose four different types to accompany the cards today. The first is Clear Quartz, the master healer. Clear Quartz, amplifies the energy it is presented with, making it a great tool for manifestation and growth. It clears negative energy, clears and aligns the aura. Rutilated Quartz is a powerful choice for clearing. It helps you get to the bottom of an issue so it can be released. Smokey Quartz is a wonderful choice for grounding and clearing old thought patterns and beliefs, and finally Rose Quartz. This type is all about love and forgiveness for ourselves and others.

Today’s Daily Draw

We all feel confined by life now and then, we want something to change but we might not know what. Our bottom card, Trapped, is telling us that we may be feeling a little stuck in a situation, our thoughts, a job or maybe even a relationship today. Don’t worry though, there is always a way out. The first thing we need to do is understand that we are more than likely the ones that put us in the situation to begin with. So it’s a matter of changing the way we look at things.

The solution begins when we open ourselves up to something new. Welcome is here to let us know its a matter of looking at the resources we have and opening ourselves to the possibilities that might present themselves. Maybe we are caught between two friends or loved ones that are fighting. Bow out, let each person know you love them but you will not take sides and they need to figure their stuff out on their own. We could be working on a team and one person is really out of line. Nothing will change unless we speak up and say something. Honesty in all situations is the best choice. We need to own our power and speak up. If we aren’t happy with our job, find ways to make it more interesting, put in for a transfer or a promotion. The other option is to update the old resume and look for something else. Another possibility is, start a business of our own. Bottom line, if we feel stuck or trapped we need to open up and let it happen.

Today’s Universal Number

August begins with a Four Day. The energy will have us looking for ways to find a level of balance and structure that will give us something to build on.

Today’s Crystal

Rose Quartz is the choice of the day and it’s an excellent one. It allows us the self love that it takes to make changes which help us to move forward.

Today’s Daily Draw

Our personal or business relationships could be on our radar today. The card that came up is the Page of Wands. These young royals bring messages of new directions in thought or action. I see them as similar to the Aces. When they show up, some sort of new beginning is either happening or on its way. This particular young man is quite passionate and is not afraid to be a bit showy. He loves adventure but might not stick to anyone thing for too long.

Our bottom card is The Lovers. This card is one of the few in the Tarot whose meaning is not too difficult to figure out. The story of our bottom card is about passion, trust, union, cooperation, relationships and yes, love. We could find love bringing different opportunities for us. Perhaps a new friendship, a new relationship or a new direction to an existing one. Maybe we will be presented a new opportunity at work or find a new job.

The thing we need to keeping mind is, whether it’s personal or job related, any change we might consider today needs to be more that pretty on the surface. Like a good and lasting relationship, there needs to be the security, balance and long term potential in it. We are going to want the whole package!

Today’s Universal Number

We have a Six Day today and like our bottom card the emphasis of this energy is on relationships. The six is focused on caring and devotion and responsibility not only for our relationships but also on a larger scale, for our communities. As we move through our day this energy will help us focus on what we need moving forward.

Today’s Crystals

I chose Carnelian and Rose Quartz to accompany our cards today. Carnelian will give us the creativity and passion we need and as we know Rose Quartz is all about love.

 

Today’s Daily Draw

Is it time to let go of something today? Are we looking for more meaning in our lives? This is the underlying energy of our card today which is the Knight of Cups. Our Knight is about movement and action. He is unpredictable, imaginative, and romantic. The knight rides into our view today to let us know that someone or something may come to bring us a creative opportunity that will give us an emotional boost. The question is what are we going to do about it?

Our bottom card, the Eight of Cups is a card of change and finding balance. It asks us what it is that will make us happy, what is going to give our lives more meaning? Our cards are asking us whether it’s time for us to make a change. Maybe we have a hobby or some other kind of interest that we love and we have dreamed about making it our job. It could be that there is an areas of our lives that just doesn’t feel right and we’ve been telling ourselves to do something about it. Well our cards are telling that whatever the opportunity is, we should give it some thought today. Today could be the day to commit ourselves to making that change that will give us the deeper meaning we could be looking for.

Today’s Universal Number

Todays number couldn’t be more perfect. We have a Seven Day and this energy is about seeking insight and knowledge. Seven is a very spiritual energy and it could be that we are looking for something that will fill a place in our lives that is seeking a more spiritual energy.

Today’s Crystals

Rose Quartz and Optical Calcite are today’s choices. Rose Quartz is a great idea because it is a crystal of love and we don’t always give ourselves the permission to do what will make us happy. Optical Calcite clears out negative energy and amplifies positive. This is important for today because that positive energy will push out any fear based emotion relating to making changes in our lives.

Today’s Daily Draw

The cards that came up for us today bring a warning that we migh have a real problem with our temper. Anger came up first. It tells us that becoming angry is a natural part of our human experience. Things upset us sometimes. The thing is we need to be aware of how we react to what makes us angry. We don’t want to be taking our anger out on people close to us. We don’t want to be giving off that  kind of bad impression or adding negative energy to what might already be an uncomfortable situation. We certainly do not want any bad situation turning worse and having it turn into throwing things or coming to blows. Physical violence is never the answer.

Whether emotions get out of hand on the job or at home, we should do our best to diffuse the situation and then work to have an honest conversation about the issue. Disagreements if handled well can clear the air and put everyone on the same page. Handled well, that’s the key. There is nothing wrong with not agreeing with someone. Being disrespectful and blowing our top is not cool, and it doesn’t accomplish anything.

Today’s Universal Number

Today’s energy is perfect for today. We have Master Number 11/2 and this energy is about creating Harmony. We have both the masciline and feminine energy giving us the visionary and the intuitive.

Today’s Crystals

The crystals chosen for today are Labradorite and Rose Quartz. Labradorite will help us use our intuition to find a solution to our emotional issues. Rose Quartz will bring love and forgiveness to the situation and that is awesome.

Thank You BJ for today’s guest reading!

Today’s Daily Draw

We have a pair of Threes today. The Three of Cups and our bottom card the Three of Swords Reversed. The Three of Cups tells us the day could be a wonderful one, full of joy and celebration. How is that for synchronicity? Here is the Unites States its the 4th of July, and we will be enjoying the day with family and friends.

The reversed Three of Swords holds a slight warning for us. This card tells us there could be some confusion, maybe a conflict or a clash of personalities. This shouldn’t be too bad though if we understand that this kind of thing happens now and then when family gathers. Relax, let it roll and enjoy the day.

Today’s Universal Number

We have a Six Day today. This energy is about relationships, responsibility, and service. It’s about creating balance and harmony. This is just what we could use if an emotional wrench is thrown into our day.

Today’s Crystals

I chose Citrine and Rose Quartz to accompany today’s cards. Both are members of the Quartz family and work to clear and balance our Chakras. Citrine is has a great uplifting energy, it’s creative and joyful and helps draw abundance to us. Rose Quartz will help keep the love and forgiveness flowing for us.

Today’s Daily Draw

I was so excited when these cards came up for us, they could not be more perfect for today’s Solstice. Our card is Justice. She is a servant of the people and she is an all business, take no prisoners and make no excuses kind of lady. The image on the card shows us Lady Justice sitting on a bench, eyes wide open with her sword in the air ready to cut through the bull and get right to the truth. In her left hand are the scales to make sure that justice is fair and balanced. There is no judgment involved here. A little bit of Karma, but no judgment. She is about truth, accountability and fairness.

When Justice comes up in a reading she is here to give one of two main messages. The first is in the form of a question. Are you doing the right thing; what you should be doing? It is very much an in your face question isn’t it? If there is something we can do to support a goal or set the record straight about something and we aren’t doing it. Justice is here to ask why. The second message is good news to anyone in the throes of a legal issue. She is here to let you know that everything will be alright.

I’ve always liked our bottom card, the Nine of Pentacles. To me this card is a promise. The image shows us a mature woman standing in a beautiful garden. She has nine large coins stacked around her telling us that she is living comfortably. Her elaborate robes confirm that for us. She has a glove on her left hand and has a falcon resting on her hand. The falcon is a symbol of power and focus. In front of our lady is a snail making its way across the garden. This tells us we are making slow but steady progress. This is why I call our bottom card a promise. We aren’t quite to the place our lady is enjoying. We have our promise that justice will come, but it will take some more work. We need to step up and hold ourselves accountable and do the right thing.

Today’s Universal Number

The universal number is a Four and it is perfect. This energy is about structure, order and laying a solid foundation and it is just what we need today. It will help us get our priorities set and a plan ready.

Today’s Crystals

I chose three crystals from the Quartz family today. They are Rutilated Quartz to help us get to the truth. Rose Quartz to help us do the right thing from a place of love and Clear Quartz because it will give the other two an energy boost. With the energy of the solstice this should be pretty amazing.

Today’s Daily Draw

We have come upon an obstacle or two so far this week and it looks as if we might possibly have another in our way today. Our card is the Ace of Wands. The Aces are our first steps in a new direction.This card, being the fire energy, is all growth, passion, inspiration, new ideas and opportunities. We could be working on a project or hear about something exciting we would like to take part in. Maybe we have plans for a meeting later in the day that involves a creative idea we could launch into a new project or career.

In spite of all our excitement and planning, along comes our bottom card the Three of Disks Reversed and it’s saying “Hang on there, what’s the rush?” The Rider Waite version of this card shows a craftsman having a conversation with a Monk and a Nun about work he is doing in their church. Reversing this energy tells us that maybe we will have expectations about whatever we are working on change which will slow our progress or bring it to a stop altogether. Perhaps we will have a breakdown in teamwork cause problems. It could also be that we simply didn’t have a solid plan in place.

Whatever the cause or severity of any delay, it would be a good decision to use the time to our advantage instead of getting in an uproar about it. Take a second look at the work we accomplished or the process that was followed. Does the work meet the original standards set for the project? Is there anything we can do to make the final product better? Does everyone involved understand what is expected of them? If we have the time we might as well make good use of it and work to improve what we have!

Today’s Universal Number

I couldn’t help but chuckle when I saw today’s bottom card. We have a Five Day and we all know that means anything can happen. It’s always a good idea to be flexible and ready to react on a five day. Have a plan B and be ready to move if it’s necessary.

Today’s Crystals

The crystals for today are Bloodstone and Rose Quartz. Bloodstone is an excellent choice because it helps us minimize distractions so that we can stay focused on resolving our issue. Rose Quartz will help us get out of own way. Sometimes things go sideways on us and the best thing we can do is forgive ourselves or whomever and get on with finding a solution.

Thank you BJ for today’s guest reading!

Today’s Daily Draw

The King of Wands is here looking for a new idea. Something to spark his interest and get the creative juices flowing. This king has a very happy and prosperous kingdom because he encourages creative ideas. He is a smart man; The kind of leader who understands good ideas don’t always have to be his. This is why he is so loved and respected. His message for us is to be flexible today. There are some good ideas near by that can take a project from status quo to exciting.

Our bottom card, the Eight of Disks is all about getting the work done. These two men make a great pair. Like our king he is a good creative leader. He is very focused, very organized and he is here with the determination to make sure the idea becomes a solid plan then a completed and successful reality.

Today’s Universal Number

We are starting a new month today and we are beginning it with a Two Day. The energy of the this number is feminine and is quite intuitive. It likes everyone to be happy and peaceful. Two is a great negotiator and is not afraid of cooperation. These qualities will be very useful as we move through the day.

Today’s Crystals

Today’s crystal choices might seem a little unusual but they work. We have Rose Quartz and Hypersthene. We normally think of Rose Quartz as a relationship crystal but a relationship can also be a group of people, like the people we work with. How we interact with a team is important. Hypersthene helps us find answers quickly. Once we have an idea this energy will help us form a plan to manifest it to reality.
