In many crystal healing circles, Aegirine is considered a "women's stone" but I don't believe thats true. What it teaches you is the strength and courage that can be found when you look from the heart. Now whilst its true that this is more commonly a feminine trait, I think its also true that most men could benefit from this learning too.
When things sometimes seem to much to bear, when the problems are too great or the choices too hard - Aegirine can help us find the inner strength from the heart to not only sustain but to rise and meet the challenges. Many people find love and issues of the heart to be soft and sometimes even weak. Aegerine shows us the strength that exists in love - something that is unflinching and incorruptibe - that cannot be extinguished in the mighiest of storms or the hardest of trials. It is a truely fearless stone that helps us do things beyond what we thought we could and endure more than we thought possible.
This is the spirit and embodiment of the Survivor - but not in a weak way - its the energy that can get through anything and still hold its head high.
Its a good stone when things start to feel like they're too much and you're feeling disheartened - when you feel powerless or scared.
