Obsidian is a talisman of those who dare to see…the past, the future, or one’s own inner demons and darkest truths. It is no ordinary stone, but nature’s glass formed from volcanic lava and hardened so quickly it formed no crystalline structure. It has no boundaries or limitations, and works rapidly with great power. Its edge can be razor sharp, and its dark, glossy surface polished into cold, hard glass, a “mirror stone” for those prepared to look deep into the inner being, the subconscious, to reveal one’s shadow self…flaws, weaknesses, fears, all. Nothing is hidden from Obsidian.
Ruled by the planet Pluto, Black Obsidian is a teacher stone and could be deemed the “Warrior of Truth.” It is the most powerful of the obsidians and does not cater to the ego; rather it exposes darkened areas of the subconscious to force one to face one’s true self. It assists in examining unresolved issues and harmful attitudes inhibiting one’s personal and spiritual growth.
Ravens symbolize wisdom, affection, healing powers, longevity, death, and fertility. Ravens are very direct and clear in what they want. Ravens will use whatever tools they have on hand to get those things: be it a jewel or a safety pin. A raven does not understand words like ‘should’ or ‘don’t.’ Raven symbolism is also associated with divination and prophecy. The Raven corresponds to the Western Astrological sign of Scorpio and the Monkey in the Chinese Astrological calendar.
