Gabriel is the archangel of the Moon and the element of Water. Gabriel means “God has shown Himself mightily” and may appear as either male or female. Gabriel rules the West, autumn and Monday. Gabriel's colors are silver, white and pale blue, and his/her flowers are Lilies and Honesty. Scents associated with Gabriel are jasmine, rose, eucalyptus and myrrh. Signs of the zodiac ruled by Gabriel are Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio. Crystals that may be used in communicating with Gabriel include Moonstone, Aquamarine, Pearls and Selenite.
Archangel Gabriel may be called upon to fulfill your dreams, bring your ideas into reality and give you courage to overcome your fears. Gabriel is associated with clairvoyance, magic, fertility, childbirth and domestic issues. As an archangel of water, Gabriel can aide in safe travel, especially over water. He/She can also help heal creatures of the water, protect against bad weather and help with problems relating to menstrual cycles (as these coincide with lunar phases).
Moonstone gets its energy from the Moon, thus making it useful for increasing psychic power and dream remembrance. It is a powerful healing stone, especially for women's issues. Moonstone is also useful in the garden to encourage plant and flower growth. It also protects travelers, calms overactive children and keeps peace in the home.
Aquamarine is the stone of the sea and is ruled by Neptune.This pale, clear blue stone can help with clairvoyance, intuition and meditation. In healing practices, aquamarine alleviates tooth problems, colds, and even seasickness. It's a soothing crystal to have on hand during extreme anxiety or panic attacks. Aquamarine can be used during distance healing. At home, this crystal can bring back loving communication between partners, and can be helpful with children, especially if they have a fear of water. Use this stone to attract business from overseas.
Pearls, having come from the sea, are also associated with Gabriel. As with moonstone, pearls are ruled by the Moon. They can increase love, either romantically or spiritually. Pearls can be used for prosperity and easing an overloaded mind. In healing, pearls can equalize hormonal rhythms with those of the moon and nature. They can also be helpful in removing the ties that bind us to overly-dominant people.
Selenite, another moon and water crystal, is an excellent crystal to develop communication with spirit guides, angels and ancient ones. In healing, it is used to regulate fluid flowing throughout the body. It can also help our bodies absorb calcium (useful for those with osteoporosis, like myself). Selenite helps with communication between partners and family members and it can also help with telepathic animal communication.
Next week, we will post our next article which talks about Crystals that can help you to connect to Archangel Raphael.
