Blue Tourmaline might also be used to honor Whope, the Lakota Sioux Goddess of Peace. She is not only the goddess of harmony, but also of meditation and friendship.
Blue Tourmaline is a powerful healer for sadness and grief, and coming to terms with buried emotions or memories from the past when there is no possibility of justice. It is especially helpful in healing childhood trauma, injury or abuse, and assists in overcoming insomnia or nightmares.
Tourmaline is associated with Libra. Wikipedia tell us that Libra (♎) is the seventh astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Libra. In western astrology, this sign is no longer aligned with the constellation as a result of the precession of the equinoxes. In astrology, Libra is considered a "masculine", positive (extrovert) sign. It is also considered an air sign and is one of four cardinal signs.
Libra is ruled by the planet Venus (which also rules Taurus). Being the seventh sign of the zodiac, Libra has been associated with the astrological seventh house.
Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Libra individuals. Libras are commonly referred to as feisty and fiery individuals. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun enters Libra on the moment of autumnal equinox by definition on September 23, leaving it on October 22. Under the sidereal zodiac, it is currently there roughly around October 18 and November 16.
Blue Tourmaline utilizes Water energy, the energy of stillness, quiet strength, and purification. It embodies potentialities unrealized. It is yielding, formless, yet powerful. The Water element brings power of regeneration and rebirth. It is the energy of the circle of life. Use turquoise crystals to enhance any space that you use for repose, calm reflection, or prayer. Water energy is traditionally associated with the North area of a home or room. It is associated with the Career and Life Path area, its flowing energy assuring a balance of energy as your life unfolds and flows.
In the metaphysical world, Blue Tourmaline is a crystal of Spirit and peace, providing for deep meditation and bringing past hurts to the surface for healing. It encourages the release of emotional bonds and frees the mind to explore a higher consciousness and spiritual connection.
Other practitioners report that Tourmaline promotes an appreciation for the many wonders that life has to offer, encourages patience and openness, and heightens our appreciation of our fellow man.
