The Super Bowl Game, a very popular football competition played by the two best teams of the football season, is scheduled on the first Sunday of February. Groundhog Day, which came about from an old German superstition, is celebrated on February 2. If this hibernating animal casts a shadow it means winter will last for another six weeks, otherwise it means that spring would come early. February 8th is the Chinese New Year and is also called the Spring Festival. Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14th by lovers all over the world who give gifts of chocolate, flowers, diamonds, and cards. It is also a popular day for engagements and weddings.

Featured Crystal: Amethyst
The Amethyst is the birth stone for the month of February. This lovely purple stone is beautiful when in its natural state and unpolished as it sparkles with its clear quartz points. As a polished stone, its purple color is usually quite vibrant. In Roman and Greek times this stone was as valuable as diamonds. In early Roman history dignitaries wore the amethyst as a talisman for preventing intoxication from drinking wine. “Throughout history the special virtue of Amethyst has been that of preventing drunkenness and overindulgence. Ancient Greeks and Romans routinely studded their goblets with Amethyst believing wine drunk from an Amethyst cup was powerless to intoxicate, and a stone worn on the body, especially at the navel, had a sobering effect, not only for inebriation but in over-zealousness in passion. Catholic bishops also wore amethysts in a ring to protect from mystical intoxication. Kissing the ring kept others from similar mystical intoxication and kept them grounded in spiritual thought.” [http://www.crystalvaults.com]
To this day this beautiful stone is used in releasing addictions from alcohol and drug use. In the spiritual world the amethyst connects one with the divine. It is said when one asks that an amethysts placed on the brow this stone can open the “third eye” in order to “see, hear, know and feel”. This allows these senses to become finely tuned for psychic awareness.
This crystal is also wonderful for cleansing the aura and preventing negative energy being absorbed into the body through the auric field. The amethyst can be used for dream recall. If one wants to remember their dreams, since one receives knowledge from the divine in dreams, having an amethyst under one’s pillow will help with remembering one’s dreams.
Amethyst is also known as the “calming stone” and is a great crystal to have in a child’s room as this will help the child to have a peaceful sleep without the fear of nightmares. This stone is good to have in a room where business is conducted as it tends to “calm tempers” and business decisions can be made in an amicable manner.
An Oracle Card Reading for this month: Forgiving and Learning, the Romance Angel Oracle by Doreen Virtue
This card states, “As you release and heal the past, you can experience more love in your present moment.” In order for you to love yourself and have a healthy relationship with another person you must first release any past hurt or anger from a former relationship. If you hold onto that hurt or anger and not forgive, it will continue to fester and prevent you from having a healthy loving relationship with yourself and with others. When forgiveness is said and done this opens the heart for a new love for oneself and also a healthy love for another person. In letting go of the past, forgiving is a releasing which allows you to move forward and not be stuck in the same kind of relationships which bring more grief and hurt. Love who you are in your NOW and this will bring to you a future of healthy loving relationships for yourself and with others.
