This art doll is enhanced with the following meaningful and symbolic features:
NEW MOON: opens us to new beginnings. It’s the time to start fresh and is connected to concepts of rebirth. It is the time to finally take the leap and go after scary ideas.
STAR: represents divine guidance and protection. It symbolizes purity and good luck and suggests that you have reached a turning point in your life. Star evokes aspiration, inspiration and imagination. It can take you on a journey of wonder, dreams, pursuits, magic and creative brilliance.
FEATHERS: evoke connection to divinity and spiritual realms, a symbol of freedom.
SILVER: Silver being a precious metal, the colour symbolizes calmness, elegance, mystery, sophistication, maturity, intelligence, glamor and also a sense of purification. Symbolic of wealth, prosperity, and good fortune, the colour silver relates to success. Those who wear silver are thought to be dressed in the trappings of royalty. Silver prevails as one of the most powerful shades, making it a prominent member of the colour wheel. It is symbolic of purity, strength, clarity, focus, and the feminine energy. In alchemy, silver is one of the noble metals. Silver is associated with the feminine energy and with the goddess Artemis, the virgin goddess of the Hunt and the moon.
CAT: symbolizes the transcendent, the supernatural and the unseen. Cat spirit animals are fanciful, magical and independent. They can appear when you need self-confidence and reassurance.
MOONSTONE: The Moonstone crystal meaning is also associated with the inner goddess, a symbol of fertility and sensuality. The life-giving feminine figure is an empowering visualization that helps to unlock the inner goddess that exists deep within your spirit. It can improve creativity, expand feelings of affection for couples and enhance self-confidence. Moonstones are linked with the Crown Chakra. Another strength of this stone is to give psychic protection, strengthen the senses and help clear out negative thoughts.
BESOM: is a symbol of banishing, fertility, and cleansing. Its earlier use was specifically for Western European fertility rites. These Western European rites are the reason why people think witches ride on their besom. Upon delivery, use the besom to do some sweeping around the birth site. The besom is a potent symbol of fertility and doing this will also banish negative energies from the mother and the baby. Doing banishing as early as the day the child is born will benefit the him or her greatly. While it does not usually touch the ground, it is used to "sweep out" the negative energies in a room, and is often held a few inches above the ground to do so.
