Obsidian is a protective stone, as it forms a shield against negativity, blocks psychic attacks and draws out mental stress and tension. Obsidian is formed by the quick cooling of volcanic lava, hardening like glass. Obsidian was worth more than gold, as they were used by the Mayans and the Aztecs to make arrowheads, jewelry and cutting instruments. Obsidian keeps your mind tuned in and keeps your physical and spiritual bodies alignment. It helps to dissolve old traumas, helps with shadow work, helps break negative spiritual work/hex/curses/evil witchcraft that is casted towards and upon you.
Obsidian is the meeting point for all the elements of earth, fire, water, and air. Keep your castle protected with Obsidian close to the doorway (behind the door), under your pillows, close to your root chakra, near your window sill and near your ‘treasures’/treasured objects. Obsidian Stone strengthens your root chakra as well, which keeps us grounded without making us feel bounded and gagged. It simply sends the excess energy flowing down to the ground to be absorbed by Mother Earth. Obsidian sends its healing energy straight to the root chakra. The Black Obsidian Stone aids your solar plexus chakra, the third chakra which is associated with self-esteem and sense of worth. Obsidian removes blockages that keeps us from living our best lives without the confinements of fear.
Obsidian is an amazing amulet for Sagittarians and Scorpios. Scorpios tend to be fiery, passionate, and intense. They are a sign ruled by Pluto and Mars (the gods of the underworld and war). Black Obsidian serves as the protector, which is important for a Sagittarian who usually doesn’t look before they leap and who can often be found dashing out on their next great adventure.
