Standing Up Against Prejudice ; Beating the Odds; Supporting & Advocating Adoption; Elegance; Healing Abandonment Issues; Mystery; Powerful Psychic Abilities; Strength & Sensuality; Strong Personal Magic;
BIRD SKULL: a symbol of death, freedom of the soul, and the freedom that comes from accepting your fate.
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.
RED AVENTURINE: Red Aventurine is believed to show your spirit guides the connection to the healing light of your heart. It can attract feelings of love all around you. Red Aventurine can increase your personal power and stimulate your individuality. It can strengthen your sense of independence and leadership. It has the ability to attract all sorts of positive energies into your life and amplify them.
Red Aventurine can help you to remain joyous and cheerful. It can buoy your level of enthusiasm and help you to overcome any obstacle that is thrown your way by the universe. Red Aventurine is a talisman of manifestation over action. It can boost mental alertness and vitality, as well as amplify the desire to take on life challenges with perseverance and determination. Moreover, it can also inspire sexuality and creativity, and can encourage confidence and excitement in turning desires, goals, and project into reality.
