This uncommon stone is also called Sesame Jasper or marble stone. It can be found from a pale white to light sea-foam green color; with black and clear mottling in the stone. It looks slightly like granite, but isn't as porous. Lately there has been some debate about this stone; as to whether it is true Jasper as it contains a mix of other minerals as well as Jasper.
Astrological: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Crystal Healing & Stone Lore:
Like all Jaspers, this is a nurturing stone and good for soothing frayed nerves and a restless mind.
Kiwi Jasper also works on healing the digestive, circulatory, and sexual organs of the body and is especially useful because it does not over stimulate, rather Jasper presents the positive energy in amounts necessary towards facilitating well being and stability.
In the Home:
According to common belief placing a piece of Kiwi Jasper in a room helps to eliminate negative energies and bring about a peaceful calmness. Note: This stone should be cleaned and cleared regularly to be effective. It holds on to negativity and if not cleaned can break easily.
Crystal Therapy & Reiki:
Like all jaspers this is a good all purpose, nurturing stone. It sustains and supports us during times of stress, and brings tranquility and wholeness. Used in healing, it unifies all aspects of your life. Jasper works to align the chakras and absorbs negative energy. Jasper also helps to balance the yin and yang energies and stabilize the aura.

Are you ready for the first blue moon, total lunar eclipse in 150 years (in the Americas)? Pretty exciting stuff! We started January 2018 with a full moon on the 1st, and now, here we are again. So let’s start with the facts:
What makes this a ‘Blue Moon’:
When there are two full moons in a calendar month it is commonly called a “Blue Moon”. January 2018 stormed in with two full moons, but sadly February will have none. :(
The last Blue Moon occurred in July 2015, but 2018, we'll experience two of them, a phenomena that won't happen for another 19 years. (The second Blue Moon this year will occur in late March.)
What makes this a ‘Super Moon’:
A super moon occurs when the moon is full or new, and closest to earth. The full moon on January 31st will be the third full super moon since December 3rd. The full super blue moon on the 31st will pass through the earth’s shadow, giving us a total lunar eclipse.
A Blue Moon combined with a Super moon is rare. Super moons generally only occur once every 14 months and will not happen again until January 2019. The last time all of these events occurred simultaneously in the Western hemisphere was 1866. You remember 1866, right? The US House of representatives passed the 14th Amendment - The Civil Rights Act, Andrew Johnson was President, and Jesse James completed his first robbery.
Wait, Isn’t this also a ‘Blood Moon’?
Lunar eclipses are always interesting, though the "blood moon" is a much rarer event. Instead of a total eclipse, the moon is bathed in a red-orange hue of refracted light coming from around the Earth. Although some people think of this as a bad omen, but according to Indian mythology, a red Moon is luckier than a regular Full Moon. (We will discuss this further in this months Full Moon Class.)
What this means for you:
Full moons are times of awakening and completion, and everything is magnified. January 31st is a powerful time to recognize the amazing opportunities before you and celebrate your recent success!
The upcoming moon will be the regal sign of Leo. This moon will foster and increases your desire for strength, equality and good things. Some people are calling this event “The Superwoman Full Moon” - this full moon will emanate special and rare feminine lunar energy, infused with the creativity, leadership, and dignity of fire sign Leo.
This moon is also about ‘who you are’ and who you are becoming. You will probably find yourself more willing to try new things, be more open and honest about your true feelings and feel more driven to be the best you, during this powerful phase.
And heads up Empaths!
It’s likely this coming full moon/lunar eclipse, will bring heightened sensitivity and more intuitive dreams. Eclipses affect our personal fields just as they change the earth’s electromagnetic energy field. So expect to extra intuitive and more emotional than normal. Overall, this will be a dramatic time for most people as the lunar eclipses bring up emotional and internal issues to be examined and healed.
If you want to learn more join us for the Full Moon online class. There will be a guided meditation, pdf of best stones to use during the next 28 day cycle and of course a deeper forecast.

Do you work with or know about Mookite?
We have started the 4 week long course on the Root Chakra today and one of the more under-rated stones I shared with the class was Mookite.
This a powerhouse stone that is often overlooked, when people think of stones for the root chakra. This amazing stone is thought to be a huge help to many people with anxiety, stress, worry and other issues. It is also used to help one stay present and mindful. Many people say it helps them let go the past and also stop worrying about the future. How awesome is that?!
Mookite is also thought to strengthen the immune system and fortify the body. I personally, have witnessed some amazing results when Reiki clients begin working with this stone and just wanted to pass along the information to you.

How are things?
I receive reviews and testimonials from clients frequently. (I actually have added a webpage HERE if you want to read them.) Today I received this quite lovely (and unpaid) review and thought I would share it -
"Recently I experienced Reiki and some of the many benefits of energy healing. I met with Sarah (who is the owner of the Serenity Reiki Clinic) and a Reiki Master Teacher and gifted Spiritual Healer. I learned that Sarah has studied for many years in America and abroad, and has taught at home and abroad for the last decade. As a Reiki Master Teacher, she instructs others on how to harness their inner power in order to use it to benefit others, not just themselves. I for one am grateful for all that she is doing, because it has certainly benefited me. I have had several Reiki sessions with her and have felt her energy as she “read” my body and mind, without ever touching me. I have actually felt her pull negative energy from my body and mind and then have felt the rush of positive energy quickly move in to fill that energy void. But Reiki sessions are not the only things I have benefited from. Sarah has done card readings and astrological readings that have truly helped me to deal with life on a daily basis. Which reminds me, she is also a certified life coach and nutritionist, this amazing lady is a true healer. My sessions with her have helped me to heal mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and financially.
Like many folks, I was skeptical at first, but I am a true believer now. I actually regret not having sought her healing sooner. Oh, and I want to mention that she has helped me to reap many benefits from the healing powers of various stones and gems, too. There are so many facets to her healing methods! I am so fortunate to know Sarah and to be one of her clients. Please feel free to check her out on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook where she shares so much useful information on healing.
You owe it to yourself to seek out this truly special lady so that you, too, can benefit from her teachings, meditations, readings, and webinars. Take the first step to improving your life—check out Serenity Reiki and Sarah today."

Encase you have forgotten:
(January was a long time ago!)
2017 is a 1 year.
One years are about new beginnings and creations. So are you being called to create a new life for yourself? Perhaps a new career or a new relationship? We are almost 6 months into this year and the changes keep coming!
All of this is natural, but if you are feeling fearful (also natural) and resisting you may find yourself being PUSHED by the Universe. We change in order to grow. But if you resist, the Universe will push change on you in order for you to alter your course.
How do you handle this? Relax, breathe and know you are not alone. Also it's a good idea to up the self care and self work with meditations, affirmations, and energy healing sessions. Any healthy habits you can put into place now will really help ease the additional stress associated with these changes.
Also Jet, Labradorite, Chrysocolla and Tree Agate are all good stones to work with in times of change. Remember this too shall pass and soon you will be embarking on new adventures!
Just uploaded video preview of what to expect for the March full Moon Mini Master Class and Forecast.
I have also included what stones and crystals many people find helpful for dealing with this dynamic new energy and the Venus Retrograde.
Hope you enjoy it and find it helpful.
