WE LIVE UNDER THE SUN & DREAM UNDER THE MOON
Amethyst is one of the most used crystals and a favorite to many people as it encourages a calm mind for meditation and is very helpful in getting a good night's sleep. Being associated with the Crown and Brow Chakras it has the ability to activate spiritual awareness and is great to use for enhancing your psychic abilities. This beautiful and very useful quartz crystal ranges in shades of purple from light lavender to a deep purple.
Relieves stress and strain from anger and helps in balancing mood swings bringing you mental calmness and emotional stability. Also known as the "Alcoholics Stone" Amethyst is ideal for overcoming addictions and addictive behavior.
Aids in dispelling toxins. Cultures throughout history would use Amethyst to purify their water by leaving the stones in the pools they would drink from. Taking an Amethyst bath is a great way to detox you all around.
Just as it can remove toxins from your physical body Amethyst does the same to your spiritual form by dispelling negative energy and clearing blockages. Also very protective, Amethyst is great for aiding against psychic attack either from emotional vampires or negative entities.
Amethyst can do all of the above for your environment as well as within you. A cluster or can be placed in any room you feel that needs to be cleared of stagnate energy. Another great quality it has is the ability to cleanse and charge other crystals that have similar metaphysical qualities.

The New Moon in Aquarius is the first New Moon of the year and falls around the same time as the Chinese New Year of the Rooster, not to mention numerological speaking this year is a One, so with all of these aspects added together, we have a year of major change and drastic shift, and not just in our own lives, as this humanitarian driven moon seeks to influence all for the greater good.
Aquarius is the water bearer; the zodiac sign's story is a lot like that of Noah's Arc - Aquarius being Noah. This is a time for mankind to come together and consider the changes that need to be made, but to do so in a peaceful way. You can move mountains with the right words, and you can scare away a crowd with an aggressive approach. No one listened to Noah because his ideas were outlandish and illogical. However, he turned out to be correct when following the commands he received from Source, and for that, his family who followed his visions survived while everyone else in the World had perished. While everyone was led by ego & engulfed in their illusions, Noah had tapped into his Higher Self and listened to the call for change.
We live in a time where the truth is dismissed and comfortable lies are favored. Some people can see the light, whereas some are tightly clinging to their illusions. The direction we move as a whole, determines greatly on those who are willing to wake up, and to inspire others to do the same.
Aquarius is the truth-teller with a revolutionary drive. They will spread the truth no matter how hard it affects others and their illusions. They aim to break down the corrupt, awaken those asleep and to lead the misguided to the beautiful truth that will set the free.
To better explain these energies, take Hitler for example - he spoke into the hearts of his people by triggering them in his speech about his country's need for independence and freedom from a system that was no longer working. That man created World War 2 by inspiring his people to come together and fight for a cause which they believed was for the greater good.
The illusion is deep with this New Moon as we see many people branch off and divide into the causes they believe are more important than others. This is where we have Pisces energies meeting the Aquarius. We are crying for a revolution, but we haven't completely come together for the main cause, instead we are stuck by the things which strike an emotional chord within us. As we have the media trying to influence this division, it is harder than ever to find common ground with our peers.
The need to come together is greater than it has ever been. We all fight for the same cause in the end - the cause for peace and a diplomatic society that caters to the needs of all. Of course, this seems to only be reached in a "perfect" world, but if you can envision it, you can manifest it. & the only way to change the World is to first be that change you want to see in it. Lead by example, and if you can't live out the truth you are trying to express, then perhaps you are also under the spell of an illusion and need to do some soul searching to find your true cause.
As for you personally – be careful for all the sob stories and the media’s uproar with misguided information. This also goes to your peers and people around you – so many are shouting for a cause and puling one another this way and that. Listen to your own voice, your truth, and lead others to do the same for themselves. Too much outside influence can taint your identity and cloud your better judgement – don’t be a misguided fool with strings attached. The only cause that is worthy to fight is the one which resonates with your soul, and your Higher Self. Your house of intuition will reveal what that is if you depart from the noise of the world and dive in within yourself. Again, this New Moon calls us to be the change we want to see in the World.
