Today, the Sun enters the portion of the sky belonging to the Zodiacal sign Leo (July 22 to Aug 23). Leo is a masculine, fire sign and rules creativity, confidence, nobility and all activities related to command and vitality. Leo is ruled by the Sun and carnelian, tiger eye, golden topaz and ruby are all stones that are in tune with its energy. Wear any of these during Leo’s time or to support any of Leo activities which include:
- competing in sports
- playing outside
- spending time with your children
If you’d like to know what sign the Moon is in, you can check out my new widget on the right or click here for The Farmers Almanac. The pictures below are examples of Leo stones. The poppy jasper pendant and tiger eye in brass are still available in my Etsy Store and I also have some poppy jasper earrings in both silver and gold-tone.
This is quite late, sorry. I just decided to revive my Stone of the Sign entries from my newsletter archives.
According to tradition, the Zodiacal sign Cancer (June 21 to July 22) belongs to the water element and rules imagination, sensitivity and the all activities related to motherhood and nurture. Cancer is ruled by the Moon and moonstone, pearl, shell and milky stones are all in tune with her. Wearing any of these during her time or to support any of her activities will help you to align with her energy. The following are examples of Cancer stones. The blue nautilus is still available in my Etsy Store and I have a pretty moonstone that I could wrap for you if you would like.
Check out my store on Etsy! I am moving the jewelry and amulets and adding all the earrings and bracelets I’ve never listed anywhere before. I’ll be adding handspun yarns and hand-dyed fiber as soon as I get yardage calculated. My shop is dedicated to my mom who taught me to crochet, knit, and be generally crafty and also my mom-in-law who taught me to spin and gifted me with my first drop spindle and spinning wheel. Happy Mother’s Day to you both!
So what happened? Why am I finally putting items in a store that has been forlorn and empty for almost a year? Because… I finally figured out how to use a lightbox. Yeah, stupid thing to be held up on, I know. It was just one more skill that I didn’t have time to figure out. If you need a lightbox, check out this one: The cowboy studio portable light tent. I really like it. It folds flat and fits in the closet. Here is a small sample of store items…
