Like the sleepy, misty time of year that produces its rays, violet (purple) is the color ray of intuition, dreams, nobility, and luxury.
As the color ray of influence that begins the cycle of life once again, violet is one of the most powerful rays in nature. It inspires awe, and invites a feeling of mystery and magic, reminiscent of the mystery and magic of life’s rejuvenation and renewal.
Violet color rays are powerful aids in interpreting our dreams, inspiring us to great deeds and accomplishments, and putting the magic back in our lives and relationships.
Violet is the color of music; it stirs us, transforms us, and connects us in seemingly mysterious ways to our dreams, our past, and ourselves.
With its beautiful violet color, Lepidolite is a natural birthstones of those born at the time when the year is new, just after the winter solstice (December 21–January 19).
Lepidolite can be used in devotions to Minerva, the Etrusean Goddess of Wisdom.
When the crown chakra is out of balance or its energy is blocked, you will feel clumsy, uncoordinated, and at sorts with life. You will stumble in both movement and thought. You will be uninspired and out of step. The world will seem to be spinning, and you will be unsure of who you are or why you even exist. You will be rigid in your thinking, and be spiritually adrift. Your consciousness will be limited, and possibilities will not appear to you. You will have difficulty understanding relationships, ideas, and dreams. Use a Lepidolite to restore the balance in your spirit energy of the crown chakra.
Lepidolite is associated with PISCES (21 Feb - 21 Mar). Wikipedia tells us Pisces is the twelfth astrological sign in the Zodiac, which originates from the Pisces constellation. In western astrology this sign is no longer aligned with the constellation because of the precession of the equinoxes. In astrology, Pisces is considered a feminine or negative sign. Being the twelfth sign, Pisces is associated with the astrological 12th house.
Lepidolite has Fire energy and is used in the south area of a home or room. Fire elemental energy is the energy of enthusiasm, warmth, brightness, illumination and activity. It is Yang in nature.
It is the energy of heat, action, emotion and passion- of ideas, of concepts, and sex. It is alive, potent, but often destructive. We all need the heat, passion, and life giving energy of the fire element. It is a powerful element that must be used in moderation.
These Lepidolites have very high fire energy and should be used carefully.
Lepidolite is often used to interpret dreams. To use it for this purpose, it should be place under your pillow at night to capture the dream essence. Then upon awakening, hold the stone on your forehead for several minutes until the dream and its meaning reenter your mind. Practice helps.
