Each shipment of Blue Tara quartz has been different, yet similar in energy and this Spirit epitomizes the last of the three shipments I have received! The blue color within the quartz comes from riebeckite inclusions and this wonderful Spirit has a variety of expression with steel-blue-gray in her crystals and blue-gray sand embedded in areas. She is a tall single crystal with larger side student and a few little ones gathered at the healed base on one side! There are a few little keys there as well where former students once resided. Her large and dominant face shows a really unique set of glyphs! She is a nice size at 3.7 oz and 3.3” by 1.4” by 1” and except for a ding to the back of the termination of the taller student, is in excellent condition!
In Tibetan tradition, there is a Green Tara and a White Tara with Green Tara protecting Earth and White Tara protecting long life and peace. Tara, whose name means “star”, is further the equivalent of a female Buddha. Now, this crystal is blue not green, and she feels like a different aspect of Earth – the oceans. Earth is more ocean than land, so it’s particularly suiting that Blue Tara also represents the Earth. And further, her ice blue color brings in the energies of the Arctic regions. Beyond her other energies, she offers to her Keeper a wonderful way to work with the energies of the Earth and contribute to the repair of the damage humans have done.
Cradle this Spirit with your hands and immediately, you will feel yourself surrounded by a halo of energy and there will be a fragrance, somewhat like lily-of-the-valley; sweet, clear and heady. In her is love and compassion, understanding and knowing. She clears away pretense and pain, opening your heart and your mind to her protection and guidance. It is said that Green Tara offered protection to those incarcerated during the Chinese occupation of Tibet. Blue Tara offers protection to the Oceans and Oceanic Ice and those born of the Water Signs. The Celts also have a Tara, the Fins have Tar, the Egyptians, Ishtar and the Cheyenne have Star Woman - all Tara. She is all cultures, all races and all women. Work with her in celebration of peace, protection and all that is life and life-giving – she is astounding!
