The Celestial Lapidary: Beyond Birthstones Single Presentation
What glitters above, glitters below. The stars, signs, and planets have long been associated with particular stones. Unfortunately, these linkages have devolved into mere curiosity as “birth stones.” They are, however, so much more. In order to restore the connection between sky and stone, we’ll delve into the mineral-lore of traditional Western astrological texts, explore Vedic remedial gemstone theory, and the talismanic approach to stones found in the Picatrix and related astrological magic texts.
I always love how Austin contextualizes the material and addresses common misconceptions. This lecture cleared up years of questions!
I never considered that the stones I am attracted to might not be helpful to wear, carry or use. Black onyx is my usual choice for protection from negative energy, but it is Saturn’s color and a malific in my chart. So do I inadvertently create problems for myself by always wearing an onyx?
Austin presents a brief examination of the topic of stones and the planets they represent. An entertaining hour long introduction to the topic. Wish it was longer.
