    September Birthstone – Sapphire

    The Sapphire is the birthstone for the month of September. The deep blue color is most associated with this stone and was one of the most popular among Christians in earlier biblical times. This mysterious, abyssal depth of blue symbolizes heavenly grace and ancient Persian civilizations thought of the world set in front of a giant sapphire during the night sky.

    The word sapphire is derived from the Greek word, “sapheiros”, “means “precious stone”. It is a reflection of constancy, and blesses its owner with clairvoyance, interpretation and insight. In earlier times it was also used to increase the power from Venus, banishing evil thoughts. Kings and priests favored this gemstone the most and saw in the sapphire a token for wisdom and purity. According to the bible, it is believed that the Ten Commandments were written on tablets of sapphire. There are many healing properties of the sapphire from lowering fevers, and curing hearing problems. It can relieve pain from cancer and also burns.

    It can be found in Burma, Australia, Kenya, Tanzania, Kasmir, Cambodia, Thailand, and Sri Lanka(once a part of India), where it was mined for as early as the seventh century BC. There are a variety of colors they can be found in other than blue, but include pink, yellow and white as well. These are referred to as “fancy sapphires”. The blue color is given by very small amounts of oxide, iron and titanium within the stone. India boasts having found the most famous and largest of sapphires, weighing in at 563-carats. Its home resides in the American Museum of Natural History. As it is in the same family of the ruby, like the ruby, it is also second to the diamond in hardness, making it an ideal gemstone for jewelry.

    It is a traditional gift for the fifth wedding anniversary, and has been given in place of a diamond for an engagement ring. Princess Diana had an engagement ring given to her by Prince Charles, and is also the engagement ring of Princess Anne. When wearing a sapphire, it is believed that it will give to its owner anything their heart desires; wealth, longevity, happiness and health. It also can restore lost property and wealth, alleviating long-term misfortune.

    Each month and its season month throughout the year brings in a new cycle. It does not need to be stated that each of these seasons have a renewed energy, and a new meaning. Specific gemstones throughout many centuries have been designated to symbolize our birth-month. These stones are in accordance with the Gregorian or Western Calendar. Earlier civilizations of India and Babylonia viewed gemstones as magical, mystical symbols. They believed that each one possessed a magical attribute or property that connected their significance aligning with the Zodiac calendar.

    Other interesting facts about the September Birthstone Sapphire:

    -It is said that it must be set in silver or white metal and worn on the middle finger for any therapeutic purposes.

    -Suspicions of ancient India state that the gem should be kept close to one’s skin or under the pillow while sleeping for at least one week before the final purchase is made.

Wishing You A Very Happy & Healthy Saturday!

I hope everyone is having a great day. I have been up since 2 this morning with a sick stomach. I took a brief nap thought I might feel better when I got up, HA! It was only worse. I don’t believe I can do any posting while sitting on the toilet, sorry.

But I am either going back to bed or the bathroom, one or the other. I hate to let you down but hopefully it is just a 24 hour bug. If you can’t find enough around here to get into, run over to our Pinterest account. Check out what Mystie is putting on there. We haven’t figured out yet how to connect two or three people to the same board. So she uses my account till we get it figured out. Anyway she is over there. I am in the bathroom. If I don’t flush myself (a little bathroom humor, ha, ha), I will see you tomorrow.

Goddess Bless You & Yours,

Luv & Hugs,

Lady A

Panathenaea Day 1: Athena’s Day

Colors: White and blue
Element: Air
Altar: Upon cloth of white and blue set a great statue of Athena, a spear, a pen, a spindle, a shield with a Gorgon’s head, and a brazier with charcoal that must never be allowed to go out until the Panathenaea is done.
Offerings: A new peplos for Her statue, which has been embroidered by the entire community, and is draped around Her statue after the invocation. The old peplos is given away to some other Pagan group in the community as a gift. Also wine, olives, beef, barley cakes, honeycombs.
Daily Meal: Greek food, including beef, olives, and wine.

(First, all walk in a procession around the property. Four carry the new peplos, four carry the baskets of wine and olives, four carry plates of honey and cakes, and the rest play musical instruments or carry oak or olive branches. The procession stops before the door and all call out: “Hail Athena Polias!” Then it winds inward into the sanctuary, at which point all cry out “Hail Athena Parthenos!” The offerings are placed before Athena’s altar.)

Athena Invocation:

I begin to sing of Pallas Athena,
The dread Protectress of the city,
Who with Ares looks after matters of war,
The plundering of cities, the battle-cry and the fray.
It is She who protects the people,
Wherever they might come or go.
Lady of the olive tree,
Lady of the shield and spear,
Lady of wisdom and strategy,
Cool head which advises the hot ones,
Mentor to princes and heroes,
Gracious grey-eyed daughter of Zeus,
You teach us all due thoughtfulness!
Hail, Goddess, and give us good spirits
And your blessed favor!

(The peplos is draped around her statue. The best of the food and wine is given as libation for her, and then the rest is taken to the dining room to be feasted on.)
