Commanding the Magic of Precious Metals…
A precious metal is distinguished by its high economic value and its resistance to corrosion or oxidation. Their high luster or reflective shine and their high electrical conductivity make them more valuable than the metals used for other purposes, such as iron, lead, or tin. The noble metals gold, silver, platinum and palladium and are used as currency in coinage and/or in jewelry or art. Other precious metals include the platinum group metals: ruthenium, rhodium, palladium, osmium, iridium, and platinum, of which platinum is the most widely traded.
The demand for precious metals is driven not only by their practical use, but also by their role as investments. Back in 2006, Palladium was valued at about half the price of gold, and platinum was around twice that of gold. Silver is substantially less expensive than these metals, but is often traditionally considered a precious metal for its role in coinage and jewelry.
The Metal of the Sun is one of the world’s most prized possessions. Whether fashioned into jewelry, investments, or art, gold has beguiled mankind since the beginning of time. Throughout history, the greatest civilizations have reserved golden objects for their most important rituals and sacred objects, ascribing miraculous powers to it. The ancient Egyptians held gold on par with the Sun, the giver of Life, and reserved the metal’s use for the pharaohs only. The ancient Etruscans created meticulously hand wrought objects using fine tiny balls of gold. The Chinese aligned gold with the yang energy of the Sun (silver aligned with the yin of the Moon), and allowed only Emperors to wear its golden color. Even today, Chinese and Indian brides wear 24-karat gold on their wedding day to bless their marriage with good luck and happiness. The Incas called gold the dew (or sweat) of the Sun.
Gold symbolizes the purity of Spirit and conducts communication between humanity and the source of all being. Thus, those wearing gold tune in more clearly to God’s will than those who don’t. Because of its purity it is not affected by exposure to air, light, heat, or moisture. It is indestructible and conductive and so it’s used to build billions of electrical contacts each year.
It purifies the physical body as well as the spirit, helping to induce learning, lessen stress of life’s tests, and to activate and actualize potential. It also assists one in attuning to nature and its healing forces.
Gold restores balance to energy fields as it eliminates egoic conflict and erases feelings of futility. Gold assuages overwhelment, combats depression, dispenses self-reproach, and calms excitation and states of anger. Gold attract honor, wealth, and happiness. It strengthens composure, stabilizes emotions, eases tension and stress, and amplifies positive feelings.
Wearing gold, especially over the heart, helps develop and balance the heart chakra. It also amplifies thought-forms. Twenty-four karat gold is said to help preserve higher thought forms for later retrieval as it also helps to activate the brow and crown chakras. Use gold to clear impurities from all energy fields because it produces resonances of cooperation and receptivity. When used with gemstones, gold stabilizes the minerals’ influencing energies.
Gold clears and strengthens the mind. Called the Master Healer, it will rebuild damaged nerves and is especially valuable in the treatment of multiple sclerosis. Gold improves digestion, circulation and breathing, and increases warmth. It can also be used for the treatment of arthritis, skin cancer, blood disorders, pneumonia, vascular diseases, heart disease, eye problems, paralysis, rheumatism, skin disorders, tuberculosis, nightmares, and spinal problems.
Gold assists in the rejuvenation of the endocrine system, the absorption of vitamins and minerals, and the regeneration of tissue and the skeletal structure. It balances the hemispheres of the brain, and treats conditions associated with autism, dyslexia, epilepsy, and physical coordination.
Gold is the precious metal that supports all fire signs, but especially Leo, whose ruling planet is the Sun which is symbolized by this element.
Alchemists used gold to make Tincture of the Sun. The symbol for gold is Au from the Latin aurum meaning shining dawn. The weight of gold is expressed in troy ounces (1 troy ounce = 1.097 ordinary ounce). A carat or karat is a unit of weight for diamonds and other gemstones. One carat equals 200 milligrams (0.200 grams). There are 453 grams in a pound (1,000 grams to a kilogram). A karat, when used with gold, is a unit of purity-- 24-karat gold is pure gold, but usually gold is mixed with copper or silver to make jewelry (because pure gold is too soft). Each karat indicates 1/24th of the whole. So if a piece of jewelry is made of metal that is 18 parts gold and 6 parts copper, that is 18-karat gold.
Gold corresponds to the letter E, diamonds, and the heart. Use for wisdom, common sense, longevity, comfort, and money spells. Use gold amulets for depression, comforting and strengthening the heart, hallowing, wealth, protection, healing.
Use gold in rituals concerning Sun-deities, male life force, authority, self-confidence, creativity, financial riches, investments, fortune, hope, worldly, and magical power. Wear golden jewelry to improve self-confidence and inner strength.
