The Pathfinder: Awakening New Beginnings with Colors and Gems


The Pathfinder: Awakening New Beginnings with Colors and Gems
By Margaret Ann Lembo

As we enter another cycle through the wheel of life every spring, it provides extra energy for that part of you that is ready to begin something new with a fiery passion. Use this time of year to reactivate your confidence, enthusiasm, and passion for life. You don’t need to wait to do this when spring arrives because this vibration is available every day at sunrise. If you desire to get things moving in your life, here are a few gems that can support you because of the color and vibration.

Ammonite fossils, spiral-shaped (ram-horn) calcite fossilized shells, symbolically connects you with the power of the ram that represents power, strength, and the willingness to forge forward.

Carnelian, light to dark red variety of chalcedony, is a vibrational match for people who know how to get things started, and blankit helps with the energy to get the task completed.

Garnet and ruby carry the vibration of passion and determination. They activate your innate ability to catapult you toward your full potential.

Golden calcite is associated with part of you that believes you can achieve anything you put your mind to, and golden color of calcite can help with clarity of mind and feelings to remember your magnificence.

Red jasper is associated with energy and enthusiasm. Use red energy when you need an extra push to finish what you blankstarted.

You can choose to use the colors, orange, yellow and red, instead of or in addition to the colorful gems listed above. Wear clothes in this color range and take a mindful notice to these colors in your diet. Form the intention to be mindful and aware of your desire to improve confidence, enthusiasm, and a passion for life every time you look at and interact with this range of color to help you transform and improve your life.

Aries (March 21–April 19)
Aries is the first astrological sign of the zodiac cycle and the ruler of the first house of the astrological chart. The first house is known as the ascendant, the sign that was rising at the moment of your birth. The first house is the house of beginnings, your view of the world, and your personality. Aries is a cardinal sign, its planetary ruler is Mars, and its symbol is the ram. The other cardinal signs are Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. Cardinal signs in the zodiac are the ones that start each of the seasons.

Aries is the sign that starts spring. The element associated with Aries is Fire and those born under this sign tend to have a fiery nature. The key phrase for Aries is “I am.” Aries are typically determined, confident, enthusiastic, and passionate. Aries may also be a bit impatient, aggressive, and possibly short-tempered. Aries are great leaders and are excellent at starting things. They have the ability to be pioneers and pathfinders. On a health level, Aries need to pay attention to anything to do with the head, like headaches or sinus challenges. It’s best for Aries to be mindful around insects, as they have a tendency to attract insect bites and stings.
