Our Passion for Purple♥

Purple ♥

Purple

“All the other colors are just colors, but purple seems to have a soul.
When you look at it, it’s looking back at you.”

If you’re anything like the Twigs’ girls, the color purple is an adored & important color to have in your life & environment.

Purple is broadly associated with mystery, creativity, peace & calm, magic, spirituality, protection, dignity, wisdom, ambition, sensitivity, imagination, gracefulness, and nurturing feminine energy, and that’s just a start.  It’s no wonder that we hold our purple close to our hearts in times of confusion, stress & sadness.

Purple serves as diverse a crowd and offers its energy from several standpoints when it comes to stones & crystals. Considering that purple is made from mixing cool blues with fiery reds, it makes sense that this intriguing color can offer us calmness & an influx of positive energy all at once.

Amethyst, for instance, is the ultimate stone of calm and clarity.  While amethyst promotes encouragement and protection, it is fundamentally a stone of spiritual solace. Those who suffer from addictions (far & wide) and those who struggle with anxiousness or insomnia are prompted to cling to amethyst for more than just its relieving abilities – but for its abilities to delve deeper into the root of the problem. What is making me anxious? Why are our minds so active that we can’t shut them off at night? This gorgeous purple stone aids in seeking the answers from within ourselves, exactly where they lie.
*Interesting tidbit* Amethyst, Charoite, & Lepidolite are all purple stones and are all used in conditions relating to sleep, insomnia, and night terrors.

Getting deeper into purple’s spiritual side, it’s pretty important to mention the Third Eye & Crown Chakras. The auric color of these chakras is most commonly represented as purple or indigo. But why? We all know that each chakra has its own auric color association – but the association with these cool colors being connected to the third eye & crown chakras is important. These chakras, more than any other, are related to our spiritual being rather than physical. To unblock & open your third eye & crown chakras is to open yourself up to higher living levels. Not in having more money, friends, or things, but a genuine understanding of your purpose and happiness in it. Spiritual solace is draped in purple of varying shades.

Purple is a rare occurrence in nature – take time to stop and admire the wildflowers and smell the lavender that grows up from the dirt because they are few & far between. If there isn’t already, make sure to bring something purple into your home. A crystal, blanket, pictures, book, anything really, that you can connect with and spend a moment being open with yourself. They say that things only have power if we believe in them, and I firmly believe in the power of purple. I keep it with me almost all of the time.

One moment in the Twigs’ homes & you’ll immediately see the importance of purple in our lives. It’s a calm, happy color that we need after living through stressful days. We use it to relax and reconnect after being surrounded by the strong red & orange energies which inherently surround us.
How does purple make you feel?
Are you drawn to it?
Is it just not your jam?
We would love to hear your thoughts on this!

Thanks for reading our brief rundown of our favorite color (next to black, of course) !

That pesky Aries Moon

Waxing Crescent

In all honesty, I have not been immune to the high tension brought on by the waxing crescent in Aries. The universe has been heavy, responsibilities are mounting. I’ve done a few readings within this particular time frame and have had similar outcomes; even my cards can feel the extra weight. And yes, we do harbor a great deal of discretion in reading our cards intuitively, but when both you and your cards are in a funk, readings can be a little perplexing for the already scattered brain. The aforementioned inherently concludes a lack of “spare” time in which to sit down and ground yourself, focus your thoughts, and free your spirit. This means that you have to find the time and the place – the atmosphere will not simply hand it to you. So I am no exception. My brain map has been a tangled web and my thoughts have been twirling recklessly. I have been overworked and under the weather creatively. The moon and universal vibrations are clearly not alone at fault for these factors being as they are. There are a few much less organic contributions to my stoic nature being tested – the things I can control – I think we’ve talked about this before – and I am still learning to take the reins despite myself.

The really good news is, tonight we transition into Taurus and the Spring Equinox is upon us (Ostara, if you will)! This time is so incredibly welcomed right now. This phase provides a beautiful time to grow, to restart. Make plans in which to follow through with. Start a project you’ve been putting off. Make decisions that will make a difference in your pursuits. Now is the time. Be fertile, adventurous, curious, and dominant. Embrace discomfort and struggle and accept these feelings as a challenge to get through to clear skies. If you need to cry it out, write it out, shout it out, work it out, create it out, whatever it is you might need to do, do it. Rid yourself of it…

And then wake up tomorrow to a brand new day. Accept and embrace the changes you’ve promised to make within yourself and in your environment. Keep yourself safe and protected, of course, but let your hair down for the ride. You were created for more than the stress and the mundane – you are beautiful and unique and as powerful as you believe you are. Let the beginning of Spring be the beginning of more than just a season for you.
