The Cailleach~Smoky Quartz Amulet for Protection & Peering through the Veil

Wild Witchery

The Cailleach (Kay-lix). Her name means "Veiled One" and she is a Goddess tied to the Lands of Scotland & Ireland and rules over the season of Winter. She represents balance, cycles, rebirth & the power to overcome. She controls the season and the weather & is a cosmic Goddess of earth and sky, moon and sun.  Because she does not appear in the written myths of Ireland and Scotland, but only in ancient tales and place names, it is presumed that She was the Goddess of the pre-Celtic settlers of the islands off Europe.  She was so powerful and beloved that even when newcomers imported their own divinities, the Cailleach was remembered.

The Cailleach rules the dark half of the Year, Samhain to Beltane. We are entering her domain of the Dark, so it seems only fitting that we honor her with an amulet created to her memory. And nothing seems so perfect as a Smoky Quartz, the official jewel of Scotland, her homeland.The Celts, who began colonizing the British Isles around 300 B.C., mined the brownish-gray Quartz in the Cairngorm Mountains of the Scottish highlands, calling the dark brown to black crystals they found Morion.

Smoky Quartz is known as a Stone of Power. To the ancient Druids, it was sacred and signified the potent dark power of Earth gods and goddesses. In other cultures it guided souls to the afterlife, served in shamanistic rituals and tribal ceremonies, and was utilized in magic and scrying to connect with spirits of the lower worlds. Smoky Quartz’s phenomenal power, then and now, lies in its ability to protect and ground one physically and spiritually to this world, and to absorb and transmute significant amounts of negative energy and release it into the Earth to be neutralized naturally. It provides a vital shield against psychic attack, emotional and environmental stress, and is used extensively in healing and meditation.

Smoky Quartz also has a propensity for enticing the ethereal into manifestation. While wearing or carrying Smoky Quartz, one may be more apt to observe phenomena such as ghosts, fairies or spirit guides.
