Moldavite is one of my favorite stones and I have been using it for magick or wearing jewelry with these stones for many years now. I can tell you firsthand that this stone does not come from just Czechoslovakia but many other places on our planet. Wherever a huge meteorite has hit, one has a chance of finding these stones...not created with any compound or mineral here on Earth, Moldavite comes from somewhere else, another planet or celestial body. The term for this is "tektite" and there are many different kinds of these. Moldavite has a distinctive leafy green color and almost looks like bottle glass. Buyer beware, there are many knock offs out there if you choose to buy some of these stones. Check your sources carefully. Not sure how I missed this very cool article, but it is worth checking out, lots of information here. This is the known history, but I have another history about this stone...maybe I will write about it someday. Enjoy reading this!
Story by Mat Auryn
About 14.8 million years ago, a large meteorite crashed in what is known today as the Czech Republic (note by Anita/Aria: Central European areas also known as Bohemia, Moravia, and Slovakia). The impact was estimated to be 6 trillion megatons, which is stronger than all the atomic bombs currently on earth combined. Believe it or not, this is strong enough to vaporize rock, and that is what is theorized to have happened. The collision caused the meteorite and the terrestrial rock to evaporate into a gas which in turn rained down in liquid form and cooling, condensing and solidifying on its way down as it hit the crater. This newly formed glass is what we call Moldavite today. This is why it is believed that many pieces of Moldavite are aerodynamic in shape, because they literally fell from the sky. Though it is technically a tektite glass, I will be referring to it as a stone for simplicity’s sake in this article.
Moldavite is a very popular stone among witches, mystics and healers. It is considered a high vibrational stone, so much in fact that the term “Moldavite Flush” was coined for the experience of the energetic warmth that tends to flood many people when holding it. The stone today is believed to enhance psychic and healing abilities, give access to the Akashic Records, accelerate the personal evolution of the light body, induces astral projection and shamanic journeying and open one up to higher levels of compassion. Moldavite is believed to stimulate all the chakras, with particular focus on the heart chakra. Just as Moldavite is the union of heaven and earth, so is the heart chakra the union of higher and lower chakras. However, it has a rich history in occult lore that many are unaware of.
Superbly packaged in a sturdy box, these are standard Tarot sized cards, border-less, shiny card-stock and easy to shuffle. Not antiqued but with that old school look and design and the use of the original woodcut drawings by Pamela Colman Smith.
The colors are different, more bold and the backgrounds utilize stunning shades and tints making for more three dimensional art. From what I understand, the art used for the original Rider Waite backs; a beautiful design of red roses and white lilies is what was used for this deck.
This is now one of my go-to decks that I will always reach for when doing professional readings because they are so beautiful. The book is in several languages and includes upright and reverse meanings--more in depth than with a tiny white booklet.
Simply put to collectors; this is one deck that will be a stand out in your collection. I always recommend that my Tarot students start with a Rider Waite or Waite-Colman-Smith deck--so this can also be a student's f…
The first ever Oracle Deck using Saami (or Sami) images and spiritual principles has been created by a Sami Shaman or Noaidi named Astrid Ingebjørg Swart who is based out of Oslo, Norway. She established her practice over eight years ago and teaches Astrology, Natural Healing, Shamanism, Reflexology and much more--she also teaches internationally.
For those of you that don't know, the Sami or Saami people are the only indigenous people of Europe that the UN recognizes and they live in the far northern parts of Scandinavia and the Kola Peninsula of Russia, mostly above the Arctic Circle. The land, spanning four countries that used to have no borders was called Lapland and the people, Laplanders, but this term is no longer used as it is considered derogatory. They are the reindeer herders of the North and many still make their living this way. They are also known for their love of yoiking or joiking, a form of ceremonial singing and chanting. Since many of the Sami are a nomadic pe…
DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE MATH!To determine your soul and personality card, add the day, month and year you were born.Take that total and add all of those numbers in a row. If the sum is more than 22, add together the resulting numbers. If the sum is between 10 and 22, that number is your personality card. Add that number together to find your soul card.To calculate your year card, do this:add the number of the day and the month you were born to the year you want to check your card for. Then add those numbers all together for the total. The sum of those numbers is your year card. Your year card is in effect and you are under it's influence from your last birth-date to your upcoming (or next) birth-date. If you have any questions on this, just ask me (use the contact form on this site).*I use the number 22 for the Fool in order to assign a number value to that card. **Create a chart or an old calendar and calculate past year cards.
