As its that time of year where we fall into the Libra season following the new moon which rose on 8th October I thought of combining stardust with crystals, such a wonderful combo to explore and consider at this time of year. So as the temperature starts to fall and we feel ourselves wishing to cocoon into the warmth of our homes we can now start to take time to pause, harness our energies and focus on the lunar cycle ahead.

The new moon wishes for us to change and transform, so whilst it can be difficult to make change, work on ourselves it is essential to shed the past and become the person we want to be which is where crystals can be used to help support us with the transition and as Tourmaline is the birthstone for Libra, therefore the most important crystal to focus on at this moment in time.

This beautiful crystal, known as the grounding stone, will help to align your chakras and open your mind so that you can be balanced and open to knowledge and new experiences this season. This crystal looks different in the light and is stunning to look at. It is a receptive stone, which means it is soothing, calming, inward and magnetic, promoting meditation, spirituality, wisdom and mysticism. The preferred talisman of protection, which can be used as a psychic shield to ground your energy and combat the entry of negative entries in your energy field. This crystal can come in different shapes, sizes and be worn as jewellery so whatever works for you. Long used by wizards, shamans, witches and magicians. Be sure to have this with you for the month ahead.
