I have this bracelet that I think you would love, photo attached. My Dad gave it to me, he is a Leo, complete with amazing mane of coiffed black hair at the age of 61. It’s so funny, as I get older, I realize more and more how similar I am to my Dad. This bracelet is just one more sign of that. He is interested in the occult, in the unknown, in the other worldly, in the stars, in the Earth’s core and all the other in-betweens including the hard facts, truths and the answerless questions.
One day a few years ago he was wearing this bracelet and I just thought it was the coolest and told him so. He unlatched the hinge and placed it on my wrist, giving it to me and telling me not to lose it. As you can see, its friggin aweome. It’s so tactile, the black is fading and the gold is shining through. I am Gemini Sun, Leo Rising and the face of the lion is staring right at the sign of Gemini. I love it and it makes me feel really connected to my Pops. This is one of those pieces of jewelry that that makes me feel GOOD. Its energizing.
Also, a bit back I wrote you a post about my moonstone jewelry and its invigorating and comforting qualities. In that same email I said I bought this beautiful owl ring which has emerald eyes. I said that i took it off the minute I put it on bc it was not feeling right or good…I felt whammied by it and overwhelmed. Today I feel curious…like an answer is around the bend. Perhaps something I don’t want to know but need to know. It feeling a slight bit paranoid but I slipped this ring on because I felt the wise owl was here to guide me today.
(pic also attached).
Anywho, hope you’re well and enjoy your weekend. Thanks as always for all you do!

Hey I love this (and thank you for the validation, i need it today, my lymph nodes are like two giant golf-balls lol) and YES the talismanic power of jewellery or body art, for that matter can be sensational. I have often thought it would be good to wear a little symbol of the sign you want to strengthen in your life. Eg; Saturn & Capricorn for help with worldly affairs, business confidence, getting your shit together….Venus for love obviously…But it is important that the jewel/image speaks to you.
Your Leo Dad sounds incredible…I love the pic you paint of him and the Owl is Athena/Minerva…the Owl symbolically flies ahead, seeing patterns in the landscape and routes or obstacles that you cannot see from where you are. They say that wise witches, druids and shamans et al would go on trance journeys to fly with these creatures and others. Witch-wise, it always comes back to mugwort lol.
Also in Feng Shui, they say that some people are enervated by stones and may need instead to wear wood or metal. It depends on your Gua or Kua number which you can calculate here – eg; mine means i do better to wear metal but not gemstones (Earth) and loads of white. My friend Not the Typical Virgo does well in Green & Wood jewellery which, oddly enough, she has been desperate to wear lately, during a time of major transition. Some peeps find red fires up their Qi whilst others wear scarlet and are merely scattered. Once you know your Kua/Gua number, you can google for all manner of batty sounding but fascinating fashion/color/jewel recommendations.
