The Life Stone represents the Self and/or the way the Subject sees him/herself in this life at this time. It can indicate a point of centeredness we want and reach for, one that we know or learn that we bring about by our consciousness, decisions, attitudes, and activities. This Stone refers to the Subject and that Subject's life. Other people and their lives are represented by other Stones.
The Luck Stone represents fortunate circumstances being around a person. Often thought of as random, luck is actually the results and fruitfulness of circumstances set up by earlier thoughts and actions. Luck represented by this stone is seldom sudden. It covers a period of time, usually a few weeks or longer.
The Love Stone represents loved ones, family, people close to the Subject, people the Subject cares about, and those to whom the Subject is emotionally connected. It also indicates attitudes about love. Venus represents romantic love, the Moon Stone is all about emotions, and the Mars Stone expresses sexual passion, but the Love Stone can also represent some combination of all these facets of love.
The Magic Stone represents timing, the flow of time, and the rate of passage of time. In combination with the Life Stone, the Magic Stone indicates if things seem to move slower, faster, or as anticipated. It offers information about the ups and downs involving matters of time and timing, implies the instigation of activities at a particular time, and reveals the best time to move forward on past projects or begin new ones.
The Place Stone represents all kinds of places as they relate to the Subject. Such places include the home, the work place, a physical geographic place, a familiar place, or even a place where one has not been before. This stone can reveal attitudes, issues, opportunities, and/or concerns about current or new places.
The Commitment Stone represents all types of commitments and responsibilities, which often involve paperwork or getting paperwork done. Legal issues can fall under its domain, as can news of many kinds. This Stone also represents a commitment of will because it takes a commitment to break a bad habit or to change. It may even refer to love in terms of commitment, especially if near the Love Stone.
