Honoring Your Strength
Strength: Noun 1. The quality or state of being strong: capacity for exertion or endurance. 2. Power to resist force. 3. Power for resisting attack. 4. A strong attribute or inherent asset. (Websters dictionary).
I chose Strength as the topic for April for a number of reasons. In the Tarot, the Strength card is one of my favorites of the Major Arcanum. It is usually depicted as a beautiful nude Goddess riding a male lion; holding a Caduceus in one hand, the symbol for healing. It represents courage, passion for life, fearlessness. It vibrates to the astrological Fire sign Leo.
Since my teaching this month is about honoring our Strength, I felt the perfect Stone Person to accompany that is Bloodstone. Bloodstone is a Chalcedony. Deep hunter green, with splashes of red Jasper. In Chinese Medicine, Bloodstone is said to strengthen and cleanse the blood. It offers us strength, protection, and courage.
