This design is a tribute to the bond between the oceans and the moon.
Selene in Greek mythology is the goddess of the moon described as the eye of the night. Selene is depicted wearing a crescent moon crown hence the design of this piece.
As the goddess of the moon, Selene was the patron of the feminine. She was believed to have the power to ease childbirth and inspire love. Selene also was believed to have the power to mask reality and pierce illusion.
Selene is also said to awaken intuition and spark psychic visions. She is often considered to be the patron of solutions, which often come to people in dreams when the subconscious mind has a chance to process information that has not been consciously acknowledged.
I used a larimar stone in this design to represent the bond between the moon and the oceans. The gravitational pull of the Moon and the Sun govern the tides causing a continuous ebb and flow of the oceans and Larimar is one of the cardinal water element stones.
Larimar is said to be a wonderful stone to introduce into your life if you are trying to harness the powers of water. Water is the element that rules our emotions meaning it is a great stone to use for anxiety.
Water is central to the Ebb and Flo experience. Without the moon we wouldn’t have the tides and without the tides we wouldn’t have the core element to Ebb & Flo.
