For those who have trouble making decisions--be they big
ones, or which movie to see, Carnelian can be a very helpful
stone. It seems to have the ability to help us ground ourselves
in the present, to make decisions based not on our past
("I've always done this;" "I don't like big changes") but
on exactly where we are in the present moment
Others have reported that Carnelian has helped them improve
their memory. When they've forgotten something they hold
the stone, stop thinking about whatever it is that they've
forgotten, and at some point their memory returns.
A special use we have for Carnelians is to program them
for mild, warm winters.
Carnelian and Libra
the astrological sign with the most trouble making decisions
is Libra. The reasons for indecision are different; Librans
(their symbol is the Scales of Justice) have the ability
to see both sides of a situation, and dread the possibility
that they might make a choice which would be a mistake.
If they're choosing between the claims of two people they
are even more hesitant.
