Named for the wild ground phlox, or the “Moss Pink”, one of the spring’s first blooms, April’s Full Moon is called The Pink Moon, and seemed the perfect time to release these Rose Quartz lovers into the wild.
A great and powerful healer of the heart, a mend for our broken hand hardened hearts, Rose Quartz dissolves the walls we have built around ourselves to allow love to enter. Allowing love is one of the most difficult acts to accomplish, shedding the fear and apprehension is more difficult than it should be. We engage in destructive behavior so easily, and yet find it so difficult to accept kindness, affection, love in all forms, something that is going to be the most rewarding act is met with the most aversion and apprehension.
Rose Quartz assists in lowering the gates and drawbridges of protection that have isolated us, without being abrasive or intrusive. It gently soothes the pain of the heart, a balm for grief and despair, a relief for trauma, and on a softer note, amplifies compassion, harmony, and soul connection. I personally have pieces of rose quartz throughout my bedroom, and will drop it in the tub with me when I am feeling particularly frayed and guarded to help me to come down from the tower I have locked myself within.
