May I ask you a goddess question? I have been doing my research into the seasons and goddesses. But with so many different legends and myths how do you decide which goddesses you believe in or associate yourself with? I have the ones that call to me, but it seems every culture has a different goddess they choose. It's difficult to decipher sometimes. Like for example, people argue that Persephone is the goddess of Spring, but you also have Ostara and Brigid who represent it too.

Usually the Goddesses I choose (or I should say, chose me) are ones I work with. It’s not a simple “I chose you because your interesting” sorta thing. It’s a slow/gradual process with me. I’ll notice little things and symbols. Sometimes during meditation a Goddess will come to me, or during rituals and other magical workings.

So I would recommend start noticing little details. See if you start noticing patterns. Use a dream journal and see if any messages start coming through. Same with guided meditations. If there are any Goddesses you are very drawn to, start leaving offerings. See if anything happens!

I hope that helps some!

Thank you so much for the info on selenite and clear quartz! I was recently given a polish wand that I could not figure out! It was completely clear and shiny, so my sisters and I were sitting their dumbfounded over what it could be. From your description it sounds like it's a selenite wand since there it's soft with no cloudiness. Thank you again!

No problem! Glad I could help! :)

Do you have a favorite crystal or stone?

Yessssss I do! It’s Honey calcite (at the moment) but I also love Fluorite, Celestite, Rainbow Moonstone, Labradorite, Tektite, Amethyst, Amber (even though it’s technically a resin), and a million more.

Do you have tips for identifying between selenite and clear quartz? Sometimes when both are polished or both are rough I have a hard time telling which is which.

Well, to begin with, when Selenite is tumbled it will have a “cats eye” like appearance (a shimmery shine). It’ll also (depending on the quality) be much whiter than quartz. While Quartz will be clear and a hint if cloudiness (typically). Another way to tell the difference is to scratch the stone. Selenite is incredibly soft so it’s easily scratched. Quartz on the other hand is much harder and difficult to scratch!

How did you learn to identify crystals? I want to learn soon (during my spring break would be fabulous) and I was just thinking about it early today. I have a lot of crystals and gems that I need to identify. Could you point me to any sources or where I should start learning? Thank you so much and have a good day/night! (:

Oh gosh, it’s just years of just working with stones! Every time I get to see a new stone it’s added to my memory bank! Not to mention I’m super obsessed with stones, so if one intrigues me I do a ton of research on it! Anywho, a really great book you can learn from is called "The Crystal Bible" by Judy Hall. It’s probably one of the best books I have come across for crystal info. It has photos, metaphysical properties, where the stones can be found, random useful crystal healing info, etc.

Tangerine Quartz provides protection against psychic attack from others and shields you from self-sabotaging negative thoughts. Also, it’s a wonderful healing stone after trauma or shock. It is also used in past life healing! Further, it helps boost creativity and increase sexuality. Tangerine Quartz comes from the presence of Hematite and water in the cavity where they grew. Slowly, over time, the water combined with Hematite to create rust that permanently bonded to the surface of the crystals.
