Clear Natural Tumbled

Beautiful Citrine is a stone of prosperity
attracting wealth and success. Energizes and invigorates,
increases motivation and physical energies. Dissipates
negative energy and promotes inner calm.

balances yin and yang, opens second and third chakras,
cleanses the aura and aligns the etheric body with the
physical as well as all the properties above in the
previous box. It is suggested to wear on the fingers or
at the throat.

Thanks, Mouse. Image Not sure
why this feels right for my daughter right now...she's a
Gemini. Perhaps, the energy towards motivation, not
Speaking of Gemini...I'm a
Capricorn and have always had such difficulty getting a
grasp on what my daughter is all about. Is that the
duality of Gemini? Cap is such a round peg in round hole
person (often to their detriment) daughter just
doesn't give a rip! LOL Or, at least, that's the
impression she gives. Perhaps Citrine might give the
duality a focus? Or is that just the Cap

I'd hazard a guess and say it's to do with
balancing the yin/yang aspects, finding a solid place
within oneself -- perhaps also the Sun and finding Light

Oh, geez, I should dig out her chart. I've only
dabbled in astrology, but I have analyzed a few charts.
My daughter's, however, still left me up in the air.
Everyone else seemed to fall - plunk! - into place, but
not her. Sigh... Typical...always keeps me guessing!
Mysterious. Maybe it's that child playing games with me,

She does seem the eternal child....thought it was just me
as her mother wanting to see the child I once
The yin/yang does make sense,
though, Mouse. I'll have to think on that.

It's so much fun to have a daughter that's a
Gemini. They can drive you crazy and keep you stirred up
till you despair of their ever calmiong down. Mine is 34
now and has integrated into a marvelous woman.Image

My mom is Pisces,and she says 'I am a
romanticist...I like to hear the songs of birds!'. she is
enchanted with birds.
I say 'Bread is better
than the songs of birds!'.I always associate birds with a
meal. hehehe....Image
