Amethyst is a wonderful talisman for use in the creative arts, especially in darker shades.
It assists endeavors where new, original results need to be created using tools and methods of the past. It is often used as the Artist’s Stone, the Composer’s Stone, the Inventor’s, Poet’s and Painter’s Stones.
Amethyst is especially supportive of the emotional body, bringing those who are overworked, overstressed, or overwhelmed back to center.
It eases the mental anxieties that lead to physical tension and headaches, and is a great crystal to calm those who tend to be hot-headed and easily angered.
Saturn is the planet of diligence, selfcon- trol, and limitation. Its domain is patience, stability, matu- rity, and realism. Its influence is stern and restrictive, cold and severe.
Saturn is called the Celestial Taskmaster, for it teaches us the lessons we must learn in life. In the grand plan of the universe, Saturn does not give us more than we can handle.
