Flight Day #2

[Astrological Signs: Sagittarius, Scorpio & Leo] Labradorite is a type of feldspar which crystalizes in the form of masses, grains, and tabular crystals. The colour range includes white, yellow, and grey. Often, a display of spectral colours, due to the interference of light rays from the plate-like composition, causes labradorite to flame with broad patches of peacock blue, coppery red, or dusky gold labradorescence. In addition to the properties listed in the FELDSPAR section of this book, this mineral protects ones aura, and helps to keep the aura clear, balanced, protected, and free from energy leaks. It assists in the alignment of the subtle bodies, enhancing the connection between the physical and ethereal realms. It is said to represent the "temple of the stars", assisting one in sustaining and maintaining, while providing for the understanding of the destiny one has chosen. It brings the light of the other planetary beings to the soul of the user. The labradorescence is a luminescence derived from extra-terrestrial origin, which is enclosed in the mineral to bring the galactic evolved energies from other worlds to the Earth plane. The energy of labradorite facilitates the transformation of intuition into intellectual thought such that one can implement the instructions provided. It assists one to traverse changes, attracting strength and perseverance. It has been known as the matriarch of the subconscious mind, providing instructive sessions to the user concerning the implementation of inner messages and the utilization of same in the physical domain. It can help to provide clarity to the inner sight, instilling a passionless peace of imperturbability via the annihilation of disturbing thoughts. It also symbolizes the moon and helps one to advance, without constraint, through the cycles of progression, heralding the arrival of ascension. It also symbolizes the sun, providing for vitality and for a sense of "self" during transitions, and promoting refinement of action and discernment in direction. —p367, Love is in the Earth: A Kaleidoscope of Crystals [Updated], Melody
