Happy Birthday Capricorn

Well after the fun and frivolity that Sagittarius brings, we are now in Capricorn season and it’s time to get a little bit more serious and responsible. Because that is what a Cap is – stable, practical, responsible, serious, disciplined and extremely hard working. It’s not all work and no pleasure though for our lovely Cap’s make no mistake.

Scorpio’s are notorious for having the ‘Scorpio sting’.  Got a secret you need to tell someone?  Tell a Scorpio.  It will never, ever be revealed.  Careful though if you break a Scorpio’s trust or reveal their secret.  Once gone you will never get it back. Ever.  And I can guarantee you that.  They will never see you in the same light ever again and you will forever remain tainted or spoilt in their eyes

Do gemstones have healing powers?

Do gemstones have healing powers?

If you’ve been around these parts before, you’d know about my love of gemstones and their healing powers.

Whether you believe in it or not, gemstones are more than just their beauty.  They also hold healing powers, special meanings, and spiritual aspects.

If you’re searching for a gift that brings both a smile and healing vibes, there are many options in the Desiderate online store.

Happy Birthday Libra

Happy Birthday Libra

A lot of people believe Librans to be a balanced lot, which for the most part can be incorrect.  You my lovely ones constantly SEEK balance (there’s a difference) and boy oh boy be careful if you don’t get this.  Being out of balance will affect your normally happy equilibriums and this is not nice for anyone, especially you.

peridot blog post

Peridot is August birthstone and here are some things you may not know about Peridot

As peridot is my personal birthstone I knew that it's supposed to bring the wearer success, good luck and peace and also helps with health, protection and sleep. They say that peridot attracts love, soothes nerves and dispels anxiety. Pretty powerful stuff, but .. these amazing gems have even been found in meteorites....
