All stones have a weight, a density and an energy field that one can tune into when you pick them up and the Bluestones of the Preseli Mountains in Wales, England, speak. When I hold the hand-sized chunks that I am fortunate to have in my possession, my immediate impression is that they are ancient. We may visit mountains and caves, riverbeds, the ocean, even volcanoes, but in our humanness we often forget how crystals are infused with the annals of time.Within Stonehenge, the Bluestone Circle and the Horseshoe are made of this stone. In the Bluestone Circle the stones are somewhat irregularly placed and some are missing. While their directional significance may be questionable Merlin confirms that that crystalline presence is, however, of particular significance. The Bluestone Circle nonetheless is infused with energies so that they still stand as powerful resonators, their missing counterparts stand energetically completing the circle.
The Bluestone Horseshoe Trilithons consist of 19 stones. These stones increase in height from about 6 feet at the open end of the Horseshoe to 9 feet for the Great Trilithon behind the central stone. It is generally understood that they align with the moon in terms of its rising over the horizon and its journey around the Earth. If there is a full moon appearing over a stone on a particular day, say for example, the winter solstice, the next time this will occur will be 19 years away. The number 19 also has a particular relationship with the the amount of time governing the frequency of eclipses. It is possible to predict eclipses by counting 223 full moons. There are one or two lunar eclipses every year. A particular eclipse configuration of the sun, moon and earth will be repeated after 223 months. This period is known as The Saros – a gift of Stonehenge.
While there is speculation as to how these Bluestones arrived from Wales to Stonehenge, we can know that this choice was not lightly undertaken (pardon the pun). Of course, each stone is extremely heavy but each is nonetheless worth its weight in gold as a resonator of light for the planet.
