In tarot, the Hermit asks that we step back from our routine, put our worldly responsibilities on hold (at least temporarily) and dive into the deep well of inner knowing.
The lone wanderer carrying his sole source of light speaks to the importance of being our own guide through the darkness; and also to the undeniable power we all possess that is our inner light.

September's North of Stella is a sterling silver necklace depicting the Algiz rune. ✨⠀ ⠀ The Algiz (or Elhaz) rune is intimately linked with divine protection, creativity, and the desire to act. It asks that we reflect upon the tools that are readily available and use them accordingly.⠀ ⠀ Whereas Algiz is prodding us to spring into action, we must also wait for the right moment. Pause, stay grounded, and purvey your surroundings. Remember that critical details are often overlooked when moving too quickly. It's when we slow down and check in with our breath, that our awareness shifts to the vital information hiding just out of sight. 🌚⠀ ⠀ Algiz translates to ‘elk.’ Many people assume that the antler-like appearance of the Algiz rune symbolizes the elk’s quiet, protective qualities. That may be true, but antlers and horns were also associated with godliness and otherworldly communication. They represented power. More specifically, a human’s ability to create and do things that extended far beyond their imagination. ⠀ ⠀ The Algiz symbol may appear in a person’s life when they are going through an awakening. A slew of synchronicities often follows, and through that, a deeper understanding of what it feels like to channel divine guidance. 💫⠀
Rainy Day Earrings
October 2020: Tibetan Earrings
October’s North of Stella is a pair of dangling silver earrings, expertly crafted by artisans from the mystical mountains of Tibet.
If you’ve ever felt called to hike an overgrown wooded path, or scale a jagged cliffside in search of forgotten caves, and especially if you’ve ever set out to reach the top of a mountainous peak, have you ever stopped to wonder where or who that desire came from?
Well, wild ones, there’s a reason for that…
Nature spirits are all around us.They are private creatures, preferring to communicate through subtle messages carriedby the wind and scattered amongst the trees. They speak through birdsong, changes in weather, and if they have something important to tell us, through silence.
In Tibet, where the rugged peaks of the Himalayas stand tall and imposing, mountain gods are the protectors of the wild landscape.Some, like the Wind Horse and Snow Lion, are famous. They symbolize courage, strength, and offer good fortune to the community.
But others, like those that reside on Mount Kailash,are elusive and far less inviting.
Mount Kalash is one of the most sacred mountains in the world, nicknamed the Stairway to Heaven. Ancient scriptures claim that Mount Kailash is home to Lord Shiva, the guardian of nature and personal liberation. With the help of the mountain gods, he dutifully protects the secrets that reside at the peak.
For those who long to communicate with the crypticforces of nature, it’s easy to see why the Tibetan landscape has long been a focus of divine connection. But whether you’re an adventure seeker in real life or dreamland, we hope that our Rainy Day Earrings remind you of all the secretswithinthe natural the world—many of which are hiding in plain sight.
