Crystal Healing Wands

**wand from Luna Blu Boutique**


Crystal Healing Wands

Merry Meet :)) There have been so many times when I'm perusing the new age shops and I see these beautiful crystal wands. How many of you know what they are used for and how to use them? Crystal wands have actually been around since ancient times. They have been used by healers all over the world, a tradition that is still carrying forward today. You will find them in all different gemstones, shapes, and sizes. Some of them are just breathtaking to look at. They can consist of one gemstone or be a combination of many, depending upon what you wish to use them for.

The purpose of a wand in healing is to help you gather energy and direct it where you wish it to go. This is helpful when you wish to heal specific areas of the body, or a certain chakra. They can also be used to direct energy over the entire body or a person's aura. You can use them to help you scan the body and find issues or blockages, and then to cleanse and repair those areas.

Wands are very popular in massage. When used properly they can be an amazing aid to a masseuse. When using wands in massage healing you tend to let the wand come in contact with the body more. So if you are choosing a wand for this, you want to make sure that is is smooth and will be comfortable. You may choose a wand that is pointed at the end to work with certain pressure points on the body. There are pressure points that you can put the wand against that can assist in relieving pain and stress from the body.

Depending on how involved you are in healing with wands you may wind up with several different wands. The first basic one that I recommend for all who are starting out is a clear quartz crystal. You've heard me talk about quartz crystals a lot. These wands are wonderful for helping you to harness energy. You can also hold any stone to the end of the wand and the quartz crystal will channel the energy from that stone into the area that you are healing. It is capable of healing pretty much anything on the body from physical illness, to stress points, to negative energy, and working with the chakras. For other wands you want to research the gemstones and metaphysical properties to find a suitable match for what you are wishing to heal.

When you first receive your wand you want to cleanse it. This will remove any residual energy on the wand and ready it for you to work with. You then want to consecrate it, so that it will work for you. Then spend some time getting to know it. Get familiar with the energy of your wand and the vibrations on it. You can charge a wand for a specific purpose to give it added strength if you are doing a specific type of healing work. You want to cleanse it after each use so that you don't carry any type of energy from one session to another.

Love and Blessings,

The Beluga Whale as Your Totem Animal



Beluga Whale As Your Totem Animal

Merry Meet :)) In November, my daughter and I spent the night at Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut with her Girl Scout troop. The experience was just amazing as we got to actually sleep inside of the aquarium. :))))) We also had an amazing night tour of the aquarium. If you are interested in the aquarium you can check it out here:  http://www.mysticaquarium.org/

While there, I was just amazed with the Beluga whales. I adored how they just came up to us as we were watching them from the side of the exhibit. Their eyes seemed to stare right into your soul, and their energy was just amazingly kind and loving to me. Something I found positively warming given that they were many times the size of us! I couldn't help but smile as they spit water at us, and played around near us seemingly trying to play with us. The other thing I loved is that they always look as if they are smiling! Those smiles are contageous. As I looked around the crowd of us watching these magnificent creatures all you saw was big smiles. So today I wanted to take a closer look at the Beluga whale as a totem animal or spirit guide.

The Beluga whale is native to the Arctic and sub Arctic regions, being most common in the Arctic ocean. They are also referred to as the white whale, or sea canary, though they are technically not whales as they belong to the suborder Odontoceti. The male Beluga's can be up to 18 feet long and weigh up to 3,500 pounds. They are very easy to spot as they are all white in color. When they are born they are usually gray or brown in color. They change to all white as they reach maturity at about five years of age. As a totem animal their white color appeals to our crown chakra. They will help us to open this chakra and communicate with the divine as well as harness our own divine energy. The white also represents wisdom as they receive their beautiful white color as they age. The Beluga are very playful and often chatter amongst themselves. If you listen to them, the communicate with a complicated chatter of clicks, whistles and clangs. In addition to these sounds they are excellent at mimicing other sounds. Their chatter is what earned them the name sea canary. This makes them very helpful when working with us to be able to communicate effectively. They pass along their gift of song to us. They also help us to find our own playfulness. They encourage us to be social and play with others. They live together in small groups called pods. Their energy is amazingly positive which helps us to stay positive as well. 

Below is a link to a video of a Mariachi Band who was playing a wedding at Mystic serenading a Beluga Whale at Mystic.  I love how he is reacting to the music! :)))) It really helps to demonstrate their amazing energy and spirit.  I hope you enjoy :)))

Full Storm Moon



Full Storm Moon

Merry Meet :))) Tonight is the night of the Full Storm Moon. In other areas it is also known as the Crow Moon, and the Seed Moon. Anyone else been getting the urge to start Spring Cleaning yet? The Spring Equinox last week bit me with Spring fever. :))) I am ready. I noticed myself scrubbing down the walls in the bathroom and really wanting to throw open the windows in the house even though it was a mere 30 degrees out, and the poor robins that have returned were desperately trying to find worms in a one foot diameter of leaves under the trees, as the rest of my yard is still buried in a foot of snow.

As I am looking to get hit with my fourth snowstorm in a matter of two weeks, it's quite easy to see why this Moon is called the Storm Moon. :))) Typically this Moon is bringing me March winds and rains to thaw the Earth and make ready my herbs which I am longing to see again. It is a time for rebirth, renewal, and all that is new. As the life on our Mother Earth blooms around us, we need to use this time to reflect upon how we want our lives to bloom in response to it. The Moon is in Libra tonight, so if you have partnerships you are wanting to form, either business or personal, tonight is the night. Libra heightens our magick tonight when working with balance and the beautification of our surroundings. So do something tonight that is representative with the direction you want your life to go. Start a seedling of a flower that you love and vow to help that flower grow and thrive in your home. Promise to care for that flower and as the flower blooms and comes to fruition let it echo how you wish your life to bloom. It's a great night for prosperity spells.

It's also the perfect night to clean! (shhhh don't let anyone hear you groan.) Light those white candles, get the incense going and smudge your house. Make sure you sweep the floors and removed the dust from the corners. Throw open the windows and allow it to usher out any air and energy that has grown stale and bring it positive energy to lend to the magick you wish to work. If you are still in really cold weather like I am, perhaps only open them for a moment. ;) However be aware the strength of this Moon will help you to clean out more then just your house. This is the night to remove anything that is weighing you down and stopping you from moving forward and ushering in the new. For some of you this may occur at a fast pace, so have trust in the Divine that everything will work out according to plan. Don't cling to that past, but rather embrace the future and the precious gift of moving forward that Libra and tonight's Moon bring you. Tonight you hold the power to go forward.

When working in rituals tonight look to include colors like Green for prosperity, yellow and light purple for the coming Spring. You may want to include gemstones such as Bloodstone and Aquamarine. Some perfect herbs to work with tonight include High John, Pennyroyal, and Apple Blossoms. Our element for this evenings work is Water.

Enjoy!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Spinach Rice Casserole



Spinach Rice Casserole

Merry Meet :))))) I don't often share recipes on my website, but once in awhile I will pass along one that is a favorite.  This is a huge favorite in my house, and I actually just made one last night. :))) This is a recipe that my Grandma use to always make us. I remember asking for it frequently growing up.   I've now taken over the tradition of making it. :))) It's sooooo yummy! :))) My kids even love it and you know how much most kids like spinach. I thought I'd pass it along to all of you. :))) It can be used either as a meal by itself or you can use it for a side. If you use it as a side for dinner you want to use a much smaller pan, and cut the recipe down. The one I make is using a very large rectangle pan. Mine is 9" x 12" by 2".

Ingredients:
- 4 cups of brown rice (uncooked)
- 3 bags spinach
- 1 pound sharp white cheddar cheese
- 1 pound muenster cheese
- 1 sticks butter (you may need more if you cook spinach with butter)
- bread crumbs (italian)

Shread all your cheese to get it ready.

Cook the brown rice per the directions on your package. Mine was like 10 minutes in boiling water, depending on the type you get.

Once the rice is cooked add about 2 tablespoons butter and mix it in. Set the rice to the side.

Cook the first package of spinach in the pan. When you rinse it, leave a bit of water. You just want to cook it until it is limp.

Add the spinach to the bottom of the pan. Spread out evenly. This is your first layer.

Add 1/3 of the rice as your second layer.

Add 1/3 sharp chedder cheese third layer.

Add 1/3 muenster cheese top layer.

Repeat this two more times. I usually make the first couple layers of cheese a little smaller so I have extra cheese on the top layer.

When you get to the top, cover the top completely with bread crumbs. I've never measured this! I just kindof shake it on. I would guess around 2 - 3 cups?

Slice up thin slices of butter and add them to the top so that they are scattered. It helps to make the top crispy.

Bake in the oven at around 350 for about 45 minutes. The top will start to darken.

Love and Blessings,

The Emotional Playground for Empaths

**graphic by ngraph**


The Emotional Playground for Empaths

I do a lot of work with Empaths. I'm actually in the process of writing a book for you. So you will find a lot of articles that have to do with being an empath. If you are just joining us and are unsure what an empath is the following article is a great place to start.: Are You An Empath? This is another great article: Understanding Being Empathic, What is an Empath?

In the past I have gone into grounding and shielding, two skills that are critical for empaths. The next step is learning to recognize your own emotions. I know, it sounds like the most simple thing in the world, but you would be amazed how many emotions you can carry as an empath that aren’t even yours. It really is like an emotional playground out there. If you’re not careful you can wind up with a myriad of emotions that have nothing to do with you.

So let’s start sorting it out. What’s mine? What’s yours? When you feel intense emotions, we need to start sorting them out. If you woke up in a good mood, drove to work, and when you got out of your car in the parking lot you felt angry, is it you? Or could it be you drove past thirty cars on the way there, with people stuck at lights, and late to work and were experiencing mild cases of road rage. Take a deep breath. Think about why it is you feel angry right at that moment. If you cannot come up with a reason, chances are, it’s not yours. So give it back! Release the negative emotion back into the universe. Take a huge deep breath and say, “This is not my emotion, I release it.” Take another one and say, “I am happy and calm.” It can also be helpful to have a one word chant. I use the word “calm.” I will repeat it quietly to myself until I feel back to normal. If you have time to ground, by all means, ground. That is the best method to release the energy that you have picked up. However, many times, just realizing that it’s not yours, and allowing it to go away will do the trick.

Once you start getting in tune with your own emotions, you will be surprised at how many things can and will affect you if you let them. Just being aware of this can begin to make a huge difference in your like immediately. Use the simple breathing exercise above as often as you need to. With time, regular grounding, shielding and just plain old being aware your life will start to change for the better immediately.

Love and Blessings,

Merry Meet :)))) I hope everyone has a blessed Ostara today. :)))))) I know my little ones are looking forward to making colored eggs this evening the most. :)))) We have much to celebrate today for it is the Spring Equinox. :)))) Spring is finally here! I am looking forward to the flowers and herbs returning as we enter the season of growth. I can't wait to see all the brilliant colors start recapturing our Mother Earth as the days get longer and our Father Sun makes the days warmer. Today though is a day of perfect balance, equal light and darkness in the day, as that wheel readies to turn again.

Eostre also known as Ostara is the Goddess of Spring. Bunnies that we see so often this time of the year both representing Ostara, and around the Earth were a favorite of Ostara and it is said that she could even transform into one. Traditionally colored eggs and cakes were offered to this beautiful Goddess of Spring in return for her bringing the baby animals, warmer weather, and the beginning of the crops for the year.

If you are performing your own ritual tonight fresh flowers such as violets, lily of the valley, daffodil's and other early spring flowers are perfect. You can also use fresh herbs such as lemon balm, and lavender. If you live in a climate like mine this may not be possible, as I look outside my window and there is nothing yet. I know it will be here soon. As an alternative you can get fresh herbs at the store, or just decorate with beautiful spring colored eggs. In addition you can use light green, lavender or purple candles on your alter, and burn an incense like jasmine or pachouli.

Making a special Ostara dinner? Choose fresh green leafy vegetables and sprinkle seeds upon the top of your dish. You can serve special Ostara bread to go with your salad. For the main course think about dishes involving eggs or roast lamb, be sure not to forget cakes for dessert! :))) You can also add things like fresh fruits, sprouts and flower dishes. :)))

I hope all of you have a Blessed Ostara!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Herbs For Luck

graphic by: Vanyamuina


Herbs For Luck

Merry Meet :)) I bet all of us could use a little luck at some times in our life. :))) There are many herbs that are known to be helpful in attracting good fortune to your life. Some of these herbs are:

- Buckthorn Bark
- Chamomile
- Clover
- Dandelion
- Frankincense
- Heal-all
- Honeysuckle
- Huckleberry Leaves
- Irish Moss
- Job's Tears
- Khus Khus
- Lotus
- Lucky Hand Root
- Mistletoe
- Mojo Wish Bean
- Nutmeg Peony Root
- Queen of the Meadow
- Rose Hips
- Rosemary
- Sacred Bark
- Sandalwood
- Spearmint
- Star Anise
- Thyme
- Tonka Bean.

When you feel you need to change your luck a bit, then find ways to incorporate those herbs into your life. Some of them like rosemary and spearmint and chamomile are great to use in teas. Others like dandelions may make a beautiful centerpiece on your table. You can use rosemary with your dinner in the evening, or how about burning some Frankincense incense in the afternoon.

Another method is to collect several of these herbs into a jar. We can make a Good Luck jar. :)))) Use a wide selection of the herbs and collect them in a mason jar. Make sure that you seel the top tightly. Keep the jar somewhere where you will see it each day. Each day when you see it put your hands on the jar and say,

"To the God and Goddess do I pray
Guide me through another day
Let good fortune come my way
Good luck hither, now I say."


When you are done gently shake the jar a few times before setting it back in it's special place. :))

Consider tying a pretty green ribbon around the rim of the jar, or lighting some green candles next to it for added energy. :))

Love and Blessings,

Choose to work with spells involving self-assertion, energy, passion and courage. If you are working with stones today choose rubies, star sapphires, or emeralds. Use topaz for amulets, and Iron in talismans.

Pennies From Heaven


Coin Divination

**photo by the sashimi frog**

Coin Divination

Merry Meet :)) How many of you have tossed a coin calling out heads or tails and watched it land to make your decision? I bet almost all of us have. Some of you may have used different coins to do this. Do you have a special coin or a lucky coin that you use to help you in making your decisions? Have you thought about the fact that this is a form of divination? :))

A lot of divination methods can be quite complex. Some can be very difficult to read. Working with coins is quite simple. You can ask a yes or no question and flip the coin for your response. You could list two alternatives and assign each to a side of the coin you are using. I love this divination too as I almost always have a coin on me.

This is not a new divination method. It's been around for centuries. Metal has always been regarded for it's magickal properties. So it's quite easy to see where this method came from.

You may want to set aside a specific coin just for this purpose. You can cleanse and consecrate it before your use. It doesn't have to be a monetary coin. You can use religious medals, collector's coins, basically any coin that you can find. Enjoy!

Love and Blessings,

Shiva Lingam



Shiva Lingam

Merry Meet :)))) A couple months ago I spent the evening at Mystic Aquarium in Mystic Connecticut with my daughter's Girl Scout Troop. On the way home we stopped through Mystic Village to peruse the shops. Well, one shop I wanted to visit in particular. The shop is called Mystical Elements. If you ever go to Mystic Connecticut I highly suggest both the Village and that shop. You can see their website here: http://www.mysticalelements.com/ My daughter and I spent almost an hour in the shop. This is the same shop I found my Rainbow Moonstone Pendulum at a couple years back. When I was in the shop, I was immediately drawn to the pendulums. I really don't need a pendulum, but this one pendulum caught my attention really quickly. As soon as I had it in my hand I knew it was to be used when I do healing work. The stone on the top is Carnelian. This time, though I didn't question buying it. I did however ask the woman what the stone was as I had never heard of it before. It was a Shiva Lingham.

Shiva Lingham is a rare power stone. It is found only in the Narmada River in Onkar Mandhata, in Western India. This stone is a Sacred Stone as it's from one of India's holy sites. The stones are gathered by people from the village once a year in a special ceremony, and hand polished. The stone is basicallly quartz with a combination of jasper, agate and basalt. The stone is a symbol of the Hindu God Shiva. However it represents both male and female energies. The egg shape represents the feminine. Part of what makes this stone unique is it's combination of masculine and feminine energies in the stone. It is usually reddish brown and tan in color. You can also find a black variety of the stone that is extremely rare. The black stones have only just started to be allowed for export. They were once only given to the people of the Hindu Temples.

The stone is excellent for charging all of your chakras. It is also beneficial to balance the entire body. It can boost strenght and vitality. Shiva Lingam helps with fertility issues and can also help with menopause, menstrual cramps and other sexual issues. It helps remove old habits and bring in new positive habits. If you center this stone on your heart chakra it can help you connect to the divine. If you place this stone on your throat chakra it can help you connect with your etheric body and help you communicate with your own higher self. This stone also promotes unity. If you feel alone it can help you feel as if you belong. It can help to unite people who have been seperated. Shiva Lingham also helps to activate the kundalini energy, and begin the process of Kundalini awakening.

The moment I picked up this stone it just felt at home in my hand. The energy was very powerful to me and quite soothing. I knew it would be good for healing, but I also felt as if it could help me with communicating with the divine. It just felt very peaceful and comforting to me. While I will be using it to help me with healing, I've been using it a lot purely because of the energy of the stone. It's amazing. :))))))

Rhiannon

**original graphic by ForestGirl**


Rhiannon

Merry Meet. :))) Many of you know that I've ben working Isis since I started my path formally several years ago. I also work with a couple other guides. Recently I felt a different presence with me. It was definitely feminine. I was intrigued as it felt familiar to me, but I couldn't place it. So I lit a candle before bed one night and asked for an answer to who it was. I like knowing who I'm working with. So the next night I was walking around with the song Rhiannon stuck in my head by Fleetwood Mac. I didn't think too much of it as I sing a lot and will often have a song get stuck. I was more intrigued when I awoke the next morning with the song still in my head. That's rare for me. I gave it a second thought but soon got caught up in the days events and didn't make the connection. About an hour later, one of the readers on my facebook page posted the song Rhiannon on my page on facebook on my morning post. I about spit out my coffee when I saw it. I couldn't believe it! Now it had my attention. I went and looked at the lyrics on the song. Finally it all clicked in. She is apparently who I've started working with lately, and I must say I am loving it. :))))) I thought you would appreciate how sometimes it takes me a few times before I get something. lol :)))) They must have a good laugh at me up above. :)

Rhiannon is a Welsh Moon Goddess. Her name means "White Witch or Great Queen." Just like her name she is a very powerful white witch and healer. There are many variations on this Celtic legend. The following is the one that I have learned.

Rhiannon was promised to marry an older man that she did not wish to marry. She went against everyone's wishes and married a mortal Prince Pwyll. She appeared to him one day in the forest sparkling with her magick and upon her white horse. He was overwhelmed with her beauty. He tried for several days to catch her but was never able to. Finally he simply asked her to wait for him, which she did. He requested her hand in marriage and she agreed that she would after one year. He didn't see her for a year. As promised though she came to him one year later where he was waiting with his men. They were wed in her father's castle, a castle made of silver crystal.

During the wedding celebration a great fight broke out. It is said that the man she was suppose to marry was responsible for it. The man argued that Rhiannon should no longer be allowed in the fairy realm. Rhiannon dealt with it as quietly as she could trying not to ruin the festivities. The next day she left with her new husband. As they left the forest, it closed behind her, and Rhiannon knew she would never be allowed to return to her home.

Rhiannon had married a prince and was living in his castle. As such she was expected to produce an heir to the throne. After two years of marriage and no child, the people of the court and the town began to talk if she was fit to continue in her marriage. The next year she finally gave birth to a son. At the time Rhiannon was assigned six people to help care for her and her young son. They were there to help Rhiannon recover from the birth of her son. Sadly one night, all of them fell asleep. When everyone awoke they discovered that the baby was missing. The servents feared for their future and immediately devised a plot to get themselves out of trouble. They took the life of a puppy and smeared the blood all over Rhiannon, and scattered the bones next to the bed. They then accused Rhiannon of eating her own child.

Prince Pwyll was devastated by the news. He did not defend her, but he did ask for her life to be spared. From that day on, Rhiannon sat by the castle gate. She was forced to wear a horse collar and greet everyone as they came to the castle telling them of what she did. On the fourth year a man, his wife and son rode up to the castle gate. The man pulled her to her feet. The little boy handed her a piece of an infant gown. She realized that it was her son. The man told her how he had found her son lying alone in a field several years earlier. Not knowing where they boy belonged he raised him as his own. It is believed that the man she was suppose to have married kidnapped her infant son. The boy looked just like the son of Rhiannon and Pwyll so she was forgiven quickly and had her life restored to her. Rhiannon forgave all those for what had been done to her and lived out the rest of her life as a noble woman. She is known for her patience, forgiveness and healing powers.

“Rhiannon rings like a bell thru the night

And wouldn’t you love to love her
She rules her life like a bird in flight
And who will be her lover…
And who will be her lover…

All your life you’ve never seen
A woman – taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven
Will you ever win…

She is like a cat in the dark
And then she is the darkness
She rules her life like a fine skylark-
And when the sky is starless-

All your life you’ve never seen-
A woman – taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven
Will you ever win…

Dreams unwind.
Love’s a state of mind.”

(by Stevie Nicks, sung by Fleetwood Mac)

Grounding - Tree Method

**graphic by PurpleKakashi**



Grounding - Tree Method


Merry Meet :)) Almost all of you who have found your way to me are highly sensitive. Many of you are Empaths. There are many skills that are important to us to take care of ourselves. Grounding is one of them. I wanted to go over a very simple method of grounding with you today. Some of you will be familiar with this. Many others have just started your path and this will be something that you want to master. It will help you to control the flow of energy both around you and through you.

Nature is naturally grounding. It is the simplest, quickest method to ground. If it is warm outside I recommend going out barefoot and allowing the energy of the Earth to sooth you. Take walks whenever you can. The fresh air and energy of the earth around you will calm you. A very simple grounding method I learned is a tree meditation. I learned to do it outside first, until I got the hang of it, now I can do it anywhere. If the weather is warm while you are reading this go outside. Find a place that is comfortable and quiet. I have beautiful willow trees in my backyard so I learned under a willow tree. Oak trees are perfect for this as well. However any tree will do. I would recommend one that is taller then you though, for visualization purposes.

Stand underneath the tree. If you can be barefoot, do so. Now, look at the tree and notice the trunk of the tree extending into the ground. Can you see it’s roots? I want you to envision yourself as that tree. Stand up straight and take a few deep breaths. Visualize roots extending from your feet down into the soil beneath your feet. They are extending right into the earth to tap into it’s grounding energy. Now I want you to look up towards the top of the tree. Can you see where it’s branches are extending towards the sky? Almost as if they are reaching toward that divine universal energy above? Extend your arms into the air and visualize them as branches extending towards the sky. Reach your fingertips up towards that energy and allow them to connect. Now I want you to envision a soft white loving light coming from the divine, through your fingertips, down through the trunk of your body, through the bottom of your feet, down your roots into the ground. Work on envisioning yourself pulling that energy through it. As it goes through you it will take any negative energy and push it down into the ground to be cleared by the Earth. In it’s place it pure energy. Loving, warm, peaceful energy that makes your body rest, and all the muscles in your body relax. You are at peace here. Allow the light to cleanse you and restore your balance. When you are ready, take a few deep breaths, and then drop your arms to your side and wiggle your toes. You now know how to ground! You can do this simple grounding method anywhere. You do not have to be next to a tree. With practice you will be able to do it in a matter of minutes. When I need to I can do it very quickly. The visualization and your intent is what matters. The energies of the universe will respond to your will.

Love and Blessings,

Aberlemno Sculptured Stones




Aberlemno Sculptured Stones

Merry Meet :))) I love perusing all the pictures on Pinterest. If you've not joined me yet on Pinterest you can find me here: http://pinterest.com/wiccanmoonsong/ This week the picture of the Serpent stone above caught my attention. It is one of the Aberlemno Stones near Aberlemno village in Angus Scotland. Located in this area there are five pictish stones. The Picts were people who lived in ancient Eastern and Northern Scotland. I am by no means an expert in history, although I find it extremely interesting. A search through google will turn up a wealth of interesting and conflicting information about exactly who the Picts were. The earliest mention of them that I found dated 297 A.D. Recent archaeological work is starting to turn up more information about it. I encourage you to explore it as I am finding it fascinating. I have seen some opinions that the early Picts were Pagan which made me smile as perhaps that's part of why this particular stone appealed to me so. However I am also seeing in other places that they were Christian. No matter what their religion I still find the stones an amazing piece of history.

In this article I just wanted to introduce you to the stones found around the village of Aberlemno. The first stone is the one showed in the picture above. On the stone most notable is the serpent picture at the very top, helping to earn the stone it's "serpent stone" name. The rest of the stone has many Pictish symbols on it for which we still don't know the meaning of them. This stone is considered to be one of the best preserved examples of a Pictish stone.


The second stone known as Aberlemno II is of a celtic cross. This stone can be found in the churchyard. The cross has both Pictish and Christian symbols upon it. What I found most fascinating on this stone was all the Celtic knot designs. It's just gorgeous! In the center of the cross you can see the spiral of triskelions. It is said that the intertwining animals on the lower right are pictish beasts.


The third stone is also a celtic cross. On this cross though you will notice the angels on either side of the cross. The back side of this cross has a beautiful hunting scene on it.


The fourth stone is now housed at the McManus Galleries in Dundee Scotland. On this particular stone you see a horseshoe at the top. Underneath it you see a Pictish beast.



This final picture is of the battle scene on the backside of the second stone. All of the pictures came from Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aberlemno_Sculptured_Stones and a site on Ancient Scotland here: http://www.ancient-scotland.co.uk/site.php If you are interested in the stones I highly recommend the second website. He does a fantastic job going into all the detail on each of the stones and has amazing pictures as well. I also have a video on youtube for you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOoIsEb0T0A

I hope you enjoy!
