Solar Question for the Day: "What signifies patterns emerging from the last
year of your life?"
Imbolc (Gwyl Mair) Quarter of the Year
March 13th, 2010
For this you will need 9 colored crystals or stones of roughly the same shape and size and a soft cloth bag large enough to get your hand into. If you cannot find or afford crystals, use colored pebbles, or paint pebbles in the appropriate colors.
When you have a question, shake the bag and draw out a stone, and see if this provides your answer. If things are still unclear you may draw up to 2 more stones to help you clarify things. If you still do not have an answer, consider rephrasing your questions. Sometimes you still will not have an answer, in which case take the stones you have pulled from the bag and sleep with then under your pillow, together with a slip of paper with the question written on it. Here are some suggested stones and their interpretations:
Red: Red Jasper, Carnelian - Anger, conflict, aggression, passion, lust, energy
Pink: Rose Quartz, pink Tourmaline - Love, romance, friendship, relationships, self-respect
Orange: Amber, Citrine - Power, growth, success, joy, the God
Yellow: Tiger's eye, yellow Calcite - Thought, intellect, communication, creativity, self-control
Green: Aventurine, Malachite - Growth, fertility, work, money, messages, news
Blue: Sodalite, Lapis lazuli - Truth, wisdom, excess emotion, travel, the sea
Purple: Amethyst, Sugilite - Healing, peace, tranquillity, rest
Black: Obsidian, black Onyx - Concealment, silence, lies, the unknown
White: Moonstone, white Chalcedony - Spirituality, psychism, dreams, the Goddess

one solution to a problem."
