Quick Healing Overview: Sodalite teaches the nature of oneself in relationship to the universe, like gazing into a star-filled sky and forgetting the darkness to grasp the innumerable points of light. It inspires insight, awakening, examination, and connection. Called the blue “Logic Stone,” Sodalite emits an easy, tranquil energy that clears the mind and elicits deep thought, expanding the ability to arrive at logical conclusions based on rational consideration. It enhances one’s powers of analysis, intuition, observation, and creativity and strengthens self-discipline, efficiency, and organization. Sodalite does not stimulate wisdom but rather clears one’s vision and intellect, opening the mind to formulate wisdom.
Birthstone & Zodiac Uses: Sodalite is not a traditional birthstone. Sodalite, blue in color, is one of the natural birthstones of those born as the world awaits the vernal equinox and spring (February 19 – March 19). Sodalite is one of the zodiac stones for those born under the sign Sagittarius between November 22nd and December 21st, the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter.
For Chakra Balancing: Sodalite resonates with blue crystal energy that stimulates the Throat Chakra, the body’s voice. It is, in essence, a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked or out of balance, it can affect the health of the other chakras. Sodalite is an awakener of the Brow Chakra, or Third Eye, the center of our perception and command. It directs our sight and everyday awareness of the world.
Crystal Color Energy: Sodalite reflects the blue color energy of the sky as winter gives way to spring, and the sun climbs higher each day. It marks the beginning of life and emotion. Blue crystals bring trust, faith, patience, and respect, lending the focus we need to become more sincere, act more responsibly, and become more trustworthy. Sodalite also embodies the color indigo, combining the intuition of the violet ray with the trust of the pure blue ray. It brings wisdom, truth, dignity, and spiritual mastery.
Associated Goddesses: Sodalite is used in devotions to Dana (Danu), the Celtic River Goddess; Hera, the Greek Queen of Gods; Nuit, the Egyptian Goddess of Heaven and Sky; and Venus, the Roman Goddess of Love.
Feng Shui Uses: Sodalite 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 the power of regeneration and rebirth. It is the energy of the circle of life.
Uses in Divination: The Divinatory meaning of Sodalite: There is something that needs to be said, but you will have to use the right words.
Talisman Energy: Sodalite is an Enhancer Filter crystal. Enhancers have internal crystal lattices of perfect cubic symmetry and internal harmony. As “building block” talismans, their internal structure helps focus our efforts to build on our successes and enhance our lives. Crystals, with the earth’s power of a Filter, absorb positive energy flow but work to keep negative energy away from us. They help us view the world in a “glass half full” outlook, to see the best in others, the beauty in life, and the good in humanity.
Talisman Uses: Sodalite is an Enhancer Filter Crystal. Enhancers are minerals and crystals with internal crystal lattices of perfect cubic symmetry and internal harmony. They can focus and enhance our energy on the feelings of improvements we desire and help turn them into the thoughts that will produce the actions we need to improve.
Sodalite with its earth power of a Filter is used to keep negative energy away from us. When we want help to see the best in others, to give others the benefit of the doubt, to see the good side of something, use a Sodalite.
It is too easy in life to see the glass half empty, the child as a poor student, or the spouse as a slob. Filters, like Sodalite, help us see the glass half full, the child as a loving, well-meaning young lady, and the spouse as an excellent provider, devoted to his family.
Color Energy: Blue is the color of the true natural birthstones of those born as the world awaits the vernal equinox and spring (February 19–March 19). This is a time when new life is about to burst forth, a time of faith and trust. Dark blue crystals teach us humanity, discretion, and honor. They help us act more charitably, and focus our efforts on service to others. They teach us grace, sensitivity to the needs of others, and tenderness in our dealings. Sodalite is for enhancing respect and compassion in ourselves.
Chakra Healing: Sodalite is associated with the Throat Chakra. The throat chakra is the voice of the body. It is a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakra to be expressed. If it is out of balance or blocked it can affect the health of the other chakras. When it is in balance we can express what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions. When the throat chakra is in balance and open, we can bring our personal truth out into the world.
Zodiac Energy: Sodalite is associated with the planets Neptune and Venus as well as primarily with SAGITTARIUS (21 Nov – 21 Dec), Wikipedia tells us that as the ninth sign in the zodiac, Sagittarius is associated with the astrological 9th house, which is associated with natural Sagittarius matters – foreign travel and foreign countries and cultures, religion, the law, and higher education, all things which seek to expand one’s experience, freedom, journeys.
Feng Shui Uses: Sodalite brings us Water Energy. 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 will assure a balance of energy as your life unfolds and flows. To keep your life moving forward towards your goals use the water elements energy. (In some modern feng shui approaches Blue is associated with Earth Energy, see Feng Shui explanation page.)
