Celebrating any change of seasons should bring joy as we say farewell to the season past and embrace the future. This is especially true as we shed the cold and darkness of Winter and move into the light of Spring. When curating a collection of crystals for this season there are many options. Some crystals have been used for millennia in traditional celebrations and some are just a suggestion for dealing with change, embracing and loving ourselves, purifying any negativity and enjoying the coming Light. Here is a list of crystals I suggest and how to use them!
Crystals For Goal Setting + Planning + Growth:
Peridot - A stone of joy, peridot was known in ancient times as chrysolite and was considered by early Christians to be a sacred stone. Can help override mental blocks while cleansing the heart and solar plexus chakra of negative emotions. Can help clear old life patterns to make way for new personal growth. Wear Peridot over your heart to attract love.
Green Aventurine – Connected with Persephone, Goddess of Spring. Named is from Italian a ventura meaning ‘by chance’. Clears away negative emotional patterns and clears way for gentle feelings of gratitude, hope and a positive outlook on life. Great stone for destressing.
Moss Agate – Helps us tune into the abundance of nature and what all it provides for us. Increases optimism and self-worth while easing stress. Use with Rose Quartz placed over the heart to enhance unconditional love and spiritual expansion
Amethyst- Grounding, purifying and helps ward off negative energy. Eases anxiety that comes with a new year and the change from old into new. Amethyst is one of the most used stones in crystal healing or energy healing. For a unique perspective on one of the myths surrounding the formation of Amethyst, check out my blog post.
Chrysoprase- Found originally in Eastern Europe, Chrysoprase is a rare form of Chalcedony Quartz and is prized for its color. It has been used to promote joy and encourages the release of negativity. Personal uses include wearing it to attract new love and joy or placing it under your pillow for enhanced good sleep. This is a favored stone for insomniacs.
Azurite – A stone of transformation, azurite stimulates creativity, communication, intuition, and opens your inner sight. Because of this insight, it can be used for enhancing creativity. For personal use, place in your ‘creative space’.
Ruby Zoisite – A stone of fertility and rebirth, ruby zoisite enhances vitality and reduces fatigue. It encourages growth not only on the physical level, but also on the spiritual. Helps you mentally by providing energy to keep your mind sharp and engaged.
Clear Quartz – Cleans the mind of psychic debris while realigning/refocusing the mind, body and spirit. Can increase concentration and focus. Amplifies/absorbs the energy around it.
Crystals For Balance and Harmony:
Sunstone - Known for chasing away the blues on rainy days or during the winter, sunstone encourages independence, the nurturing of self, and service for the benefit of others. For personal use, wear it over the heart to increase light and positivity to your entire body. Much like a ray of sun warms your entire body, so Sunstone spreads and warms your energy.
Moonstone – Linked with feminine energy and power since the dawn of time, Moonstone is thought to increase creativity and intuition, balance emotions and hormones, and help us connect with our inner thoughts and emotions. There are countless mythologies, stories and tales surrounding this crystal.
