New Moon in Scorpio | Haute Macabre

New Moon in Scorpio

Today’s crystal selection, now available via the Haute Macabre Instagram feed and stories.

Offerings of garnet { raw and polished }, shungite { polished cubes }, black tourmaline { polished palm stones } and red/hematoid quartz clusters.

These pieces have been charged in the swamps of New Orleans, under the the watchful the eye of Isis, and the Third Pentacle of Saturn, enclosed by a circle of salt, throughout the new moon from October 27-28. The sigils pictured here correlate to the crystals’ properties of protection, confidence, detoxification, and courage in this season of thinning veils and blurred lines between the realms, when the darkness within may eclipse the light.

Unlike previous groupings, in which I select types of crystals for a specific intention, these pieces more put themselves together in an organic nature. I realized as I was arranging them for their charge that they all acted cohesively in direct correlation to this season of Samhain and Scorpio, with heightened emotions in both the physical and psychical planes.

Over two billion years old, Shungite is a solid black energy that works to detoxify your body and psyche. Comprised primarily of fullerenes carbon, it is a powerful antioxidant, and also intensely counteracts electromagnetic fields (EMF) emissions. Not only are we bombarded with these energies from modern, physical sources such as cell phones, appliances, and powering our homes and lives, EMF emissions can be magnified and created by the presence of (potentially unwelcome) spectral visitors. These energies can have physical impacts on us that manifest as nausea, a feeling of being “watched”, all of the haunted house vibes that create a sense of unease. Shungite is not a spectral repellant, but rather absorbs and deflects these electromagnetic energies, and detoxifies the physical body to rid it of these effects.

One Shungite cube will be energetically selected for you.

Red Quartz, or Hematoid Quartz, are clear quartz formations coated in a layer of hematite, creating shards of fire. Igniting the the inner strength, courage, and clarity of mind necessary to achieve your goals in a focused and effective manner, Red Quartz will influence your potential energy, transforming it into a kinetic, fiery being.

Four clusters of Red Quartz are available.

Garnet has been named after the Latin word for “pomegranate”, and linked to the Persephone myth, in which the goddess was kidnapped by Pluto and brought to the underworld to rule as his queen. Use this stone to protect and guide you to and from your trips to the underworld. A highly protective stone, it acts as a deflective armor: any harm meant onto you will bounce back onto your enemies.

Raw and polished garnet pieces are available today *raw featured here*

Black Tourmaline is considered one of the most prominent and important metaphysical stones: it acts as a complete psychic armor and auric cleanser, deflecting and even repelling negative energy. This energetic deflection and cleanse is both internal and external, helping you to shed anxious or obsessive thoughts and behaviors, protecting you from your inner turmoil and self-inflicted negativity, which, as we all know, can be as detrimental as external influences.

Twelve Black Tourmaline palm stones are available.
