The Crystal Tarot

New Tarot Deck!
The Crystal Tarot by Philip Pemutt

I LOVE the back of these cards. Such a pretty crystal grid. And of course, its purple, my favorite color.

Marjor Arcana cards The World (quartz) and the Wheel of Fortune (amethyst)

Minor Arcana card 2 of Wands (carnelian

Pretty excited about this deck. Only downside so far is that the cards are pretty thin and flimsy and the author repeats some stones for the minor arcana and the major...

New Crystal Companion: Araceli

This is my new crystal companion, Araceli.
The name means altar in the sky. When I was interested in the name of this friend I got a definite "air" feeling and that there was an "ah" sound to the name.
Then meditated with is and had an image of sitting on the edge of a clif, wind blowing in my face, deep cavern below, and the sky all around me like I was floating in a sacred place in the sky.
Araceli means "altar in the sky." I thought it was appropriate.

Another amazing thing about this crystal, which I didn't notice until after I bought it, was that there is a tiny angelic being image in it.

I don't know if you can see it but there is a head, wings and even a bit of a halo around this being that can only be seen through this side of the crystal (and not on the opposite side at all)

Very excited about this crystal companion. You can also check out a previous post to see my other crystal comapnion, Aysu

Crystal Working Terms

Hello all,

I've been reading up on Crystals lately and I was wanting to go a bit more in-depth in my studies other than just simply this stone in this color has this meaning. There are a ton of books out there about that, I recommend Judy Hall's books, she's awesome, but I needed to know more (there's the Raja yogi in me).

So I've been watching Hibiscus Moon on Youtube, and if you don't know Hibiscus Moon and are into stones and crystals at all you should check out her site and her vids! She's amazing.

In crystal articles and some videos certain terms started popping up for me (probably because I'm finally ready to learn more and eager to listen) - terms like "key" and "Isis face" and "record keepers." I kept hearing them come  up and finally decided to dig deeper into this crystal mine.

Thankfully, I didn't have to go too far as Hibiscus Moon has videos on all of these terms. I figured I'd share them here in case you too were wanting to learn more:

Record Keepers (I am now on the look out for some record keepers at my local shops)
And HERE is a video on how to Open and Close Records and how to use them from UnderWorldClassroom.

Keys (I have attracted a couple of these unknowingly and I love the feel of them on my fingers when meditating. I originally thought it was just a tactile relaxation thing but now I know better)

Lemurian Seeds (and the difference between seeds and star seed and pink lemurian)

Phantom Crystals (turns out I attract a lot of these randomly enough and didn't know it until I watched this video and looked at my crystals)

Rainbow Crystals (Plug into the energy and feel the rainbow)

Cathedral Lightbraries (and the crystal featured here is just beautiful! For those of you interested, you can commission HM to look for crystals for you and tell her the features you want, the type of crystal, and your price range and she will give you a hand.)

So there's a few vids for you all to answer some questions I was asking and you might be too.

Also, in my crystal research I took HM's recommendation and bought The Crystalline Transmission by Katrina Raphaell and the book is not for a light reader, I must say. This is a book that you might want to take in spurts or tuck up with some tea, a blanket and your favorite meditation quartz and read for a while when you won't be interrupted. There is A LOT of info in this book. I haven't finished it as I just bought it but I'll try and remember to post my reflections and what not later when I do finish.

Crystal Blessings
