The Crystal Zodiac
By Judy Hall
Birthstones have been used for millennia for luck, abundance, protection, and wisdom. Traditionally, crystals and gemstones were linked to specific astrological signs because their energies resonated. The discovery of new crystals has opened the way for a deeper connection between the earth and the sky. Each sign now has many crystals associated with it. This book describes the crystals linked to each sign and explains how they can be used to enhance self-understanding and personal growth. Crystals can be used to bring out a sign's potential, overcome challenges, and harmonize discords. They can be used for profound soul growth or for guidance on everyday decisions. Birthstones are gifts from the earth that bring healing and wisdom. For each astrological sign, there are past-life patterns to be dissolved and wisdom to be regained. The use of appropriate crystals facilitates this process. In addition to explaining the links between crystals and both sun and moon signs, The Crystal Zodiac explains the crystals associated with the planets and gives instructions for laying out and working with a crystal zodiac mandala.

More Time to Think
By Nancy Kline
The quality of everything we do depends on the quality of the thinking we do first. The leaders, professionals, parents and teachers who understand this are at the top of their fields and inspire some of the finest independent thinking in their environments. In More Time to Think, Nancy Kline shares ten effective ways to help people think for themselves with rigour, imagination, courage and grace. From learning that the mind works best in the presence of a question (so never be afraid to risk being wrong) and that a key factor in the quality of a person's thinking is how they are treated by the people with them while they are thinking, to the importance of appreciation and of facing what you have been denying, Nancy Kline shows how to create a successful Thinking Environment, whether for two people or a larger group.
