Rose Quartz is known as the 'Love Stone' and is said to be the stone of unconditional love. This crystal opens the Heart Chakra thus making rose quartz a stone for every type of love: self-love, family, platonic, romantic, and unconditional. As a variety of quartz, rose quartz has high energy, and this strong energy can enhance love in virtually any situation. Rose quartz is used to raise self-esteem and a strong sense of self-worth. Its loving energies teach us to apply this love to ourselves and thereby find ourselves more worthy.
Deer symbolize the powers in nature that are not easily subdued. They are native to every continent except Australia, thus they are able to adapt very well to many habitats. They represent instinctual energy, independence, and regeneration, which stems from their antlers being shed and re-grown each year. This instinctual energy that deer represent tells us to trust our gut reactions, because those instincts will tell us when to fight or flee.
Deer also symbolizes the gentle, enticing lure of new adventures. Should a deer come into your life, Ted Andrews tells us to look for new perceptions and degrees of perceptions to grow and expand for as long as the next five years (deer shed and grow their antlers for five years). But there is also a cautious element to deer. Their antlers grow behind the eyes and offer protection. They also protect their fawns, by keeping them close while the mother nurses them.
Deer has many sides—deer is powerful and feisty, cautious, adventurous, and protective. But deer has great individuality, calling for people to trust their instincts and trust themselves.
Trust yourself, believe in what you KNOW to be true and act accordingly. Stay balanced and connected within yourself.
