Through out my studies in the very beginning, with each new topic I researched, (Zodiac and Astrology, Stones, Animal Totem, Moon Phases and Meanings, Planets and Their Meanings The Elements, The Correspondences of Colors and Their Meanings) I began to learn a little more about myself. With each little thing I found out about myself, in the end, when I looked back over my writings and studies, I found that they all seemed to be tied into each other in one way or another. So Here’s some of the things that i found out about myself, some fun facts to do with me personally. This will also help you to TRY to begin to have some understanding about who I am.

Disclaimer: Starstone Controversy:
There is, and always have been, a controversy over “starstones”. Starstones are NOT birthstones. I give you here in these pages the stones that are called your starstones, (planet stones), which viberates the strongest to your planet or sign, NOT to the month that you were born. I would also like it if those who think they know precisely what their stone is to go to the library and reference some good Astrology books such as ‘Parkers Astrology’. Sorry for the confusion, but confusion over this topic has raged for hundreds of years.
Ruling Planet: Saturn
Fun Fact : My favorite planet as a kid and throughout my years has been Saturn. I remember a few of my friends and I (back like in 2nd grade or something like that) nick named ourselves by planets. I picked Saturn not knowing any better lol…I had never questioned why or anything, it’s just as it was..my favorite planet lol…Years ago, when I found this page and read that my ruling planet was Saturn, my jaw dropped to the floor. I was just always fascinated by this planet
Moon Significance and Meaning
First, I’d like to break down a couple of things here:
Spiritual Siginficance of The Sun And The Moon:
Our Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence Earth’s tides and the water within our bodies – arousing our emotions, behaviours and our consciousness.
SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego. It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression. The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.
MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams. It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype. The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.
January’s Full Moon: Wolf Moon
It is named after howling wolves. Because it is during this month when the wolves howl the most. Some of the native tribes of North America called this time the Wolf Moon, because this was when the wolves would howl for they were hungry.
The Full Moon of the Month of January is especially meaningful for those who have the wolf as their Spirit Animanl
This month is a good time to work on your inner self, advance spiritually, develop your intutuion and wisdom, and to become closer to the Divine. Also is good for Simplification, teach your mind to let go of things that are creating “excess baggage” for your spirit and soul
(Good people to do business with, have bought a few things from them)
Spirit Animal Guide or Animal Totem:
What is a Animal Spirit Guide?
They are messengers from the Spirit World, they come into our lives to direct and guide, to guide us onto the correct path we should be on, to act as a gentle reminder they are all connected in the spirit world. These guides have special spiritual attrubutes or personialites connected with each animal and there are several types of guides…I have often ask when trying to help others to identify with their own Animal Guide, is there a particular animal that you see often around you, whether in real life or in dreams? I so happened to find out about my Animal Guide through a Shaman Journey that I was taking years ago through learning about Mediation, Shaman Journey’s and Astral Projection. I wanted to start Learning more about the Spiritual Plane. This is when i found out that my animal guide was the grey wolf, a lone wolf. That night, I had also been given the gift of finding out his name. I seem to always see my wolf walking in front of me, we are always walking on a dirt road, just him and i, i often see him looking back at me, looking to see if im still following him, if im still on my correct path that he is taking me on. I happened to be living in Gulf Port Ms, at this time. This is when Ashton broke his femur bone.
Attubutes of The Wolf Totem:
The personality traits of the Wolf are those of powerful instinct, intuition, and high intelligence, loyal friends and teachers The Wolf roams the wild with a thirst for freedom, working within a social environment. ‘Lone wolves’ must learn to fend for themselves, without the help of any social group: they must become stronger. Wolves are thought to be the “spiritual pathfinder.”
The Wolf Symbolizes:
Stong Connection with your instincts or intution
Loyalty and communication
Deep desire for freedom
The Wolf (I JUST found lol.)..is considered to be a “lunar animal” Connected with the Moon. Just found the differences between Solar and Lunar Animals
Element I Most Indentify With: Earth and Fire
I seem to identify with both Earth and Fire, but Fire, i learned quickly this is ALL me. I learned how to use it, how to become it, metaphorically speaking, there is much you can do once you identify with your element. As I have learned, can be a very powerful and valuable tool to learn about yourself. As Fire has taught me over the years. ” My element is one of passion and desire and strength. Fire….. It destroys to bring anew, it cleanses to purify. Is one that can be contained (within our human abilities) or for lack of better words can run amok and destroy.” (Who I Am Part 2 My Tumblr Writings)
Symbolism of Fire:
Colors Correspondence: Red
As you can tell, Red is EVERYWHERE in what I found, So here’s this symoblization with the color red
Associated with courage and health, sexual love and lust. Use red lipstick to kiss your lover, fill a red cloth pouch with herbs to boost your sex life, or burn a red candle before a challenging endeavor to give yourself a little extra courage. If you play sports or engage in other competitive activities, wear something red under your uniform to help give your confidence a lift. Red is also associated with war and power, so if you’re about to engage in conflict – physical or emotional – red can be a useful color to have; consider imagining yourself bathed in a bright red light before you march off into battle.
Red is also associated with the root chakra. Because of this, it’s connected to both our sense of stability, and how we relate to the physical and material worlds.
In what I have found out about myself, does this explain anything about me to you??? it did me lol Id like to point out that NOT ONCE have you read me speak on, witches, witchcraft, spells, magick or anything like this, these are all just correspondences that I have found with just me researching my birthday, as I dug deeper, I found out more…simple
