The New Moon in Aries Collection will be live Tuesday, March 31st, at 3 pm CDT.
This collection features raw record keeper rubies, black tourmaline, tourmalinated quartz and silver sheen obsidian with grey moonstone and pink amethyst showing up in a few of the pieces to round out the designs.
The minerals for this collection were chosen during the very powerful New Moon in Aries that just occurred on March 24th as an offering to my ancestors, myself, my children and future generations. They are meant for you and yours, as well.
The new moon is time of rebirth and renewal. It is a time of setting intentions and allowing them to take root in the darkness. This collection takes the energy of this moon phase and uses it for our common good. It honors our ancestors and the pain they carried that was unwittingly passed on by acknowledging and processing it in order to bring a new legacy forward to future generations.
It's about burying seeds for future generations in the rich soil of our past collective pain and trusting that Love will allow them to grow toward the light when they are ready.
This New Moon in Aries collection is not just my way of acknowledging wounds that have been passed along by all of mankind, it is a way for me to honor a deep scar that has been passed through my own family for generations.
My great grandparents on my mother's side lost their lives in the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918. They both, on the same day, fell ill unbeknownst to the other, were taken to separate hospitals and died very suddenly. My grandmother, who was less than two years old at the time, lost her entire world that day and had very little emotional support to guide her after that. She lost all sense of home, stability and parental love. Losing the warm embrace of love and safety of both parents, she had no choice but to bury the immensity of it all deep inside.
I've always known this story, but for some reason the sheer weight of it didn't hit me until recently. Maybe I finally thawed enough myself to feel what has always been living just beneath the surface. I'm not sure. I just know that I've spent much of this past year finally coming in contact with the overwhelming pain, confusion and all encompassing feeling of both loss and being lost that was frozen within my grandmother and passed forward. Getting beneath the scar and actually sitting with this immense wound has led to great healing in my life, and now I can feel that more is being called forward.
With the current pandemic sweeping through the world, things are coming up within me that I didn't know were there. At first I wanted to shut it all out and just get busy in order to not feel, but then I remembered that because I've been doing the work I can now sit with things now that I wasn't able to before. I can sit with the overwhelm that my grandmother never had the chance to and let it work its way through me. I realized I have been given an opportunity to come full circle with even more of the pain and fear that has lived in my DNA. It is an honor and a privilege to do this work.
This collection is an offering to my ancestors, myself, my children and future generations to come. It is an offering to ALL of our collective ancestors. To ALL the mothers, fathers, children and grandchildren who have ever lived in this world. It's for all generations going in both directions – backward to the beginning of humanity and forward to all the children yet to be born. It is an offering of love to Love.
At first glance this may all feel very heavy, but to me it is hopeful and light. Hard feelings can't be circumvented. They must be gone directly through. Once that is done, we can truly come to the other side. It is through being with the heaviness that the lightness both in feeling and the Light of Love can become more fully present in our lives.
