Spring equinox is coming up!! Do you know what crystals to use with this event?

No, I don’t have a religion or dogma that I subscribe to but I’ve said it before, I really feel a strong pull towards following the cosmic cycles. Back to nature, ya know? Back to what the ancients intuitively did & many still do. There’s a reason it worked so well for so long.

When it comes to feeling what resonates with my soul, I go with natural cycles & have this aversion to our modern Gregorian calendar. Oh yeah, its all fine & good for day to day getting shiz done but when it comes to health, soul nourishment + spiritual balance, the natural cosmic cycles ring my bell.

So before I get to the crystals, let’s tawk equinox stuffs for a sec.

The  Spring Equinox (or Autumn Equinox for those in the Southern Hemisphere) is upon us (Wednesday, March 20, 2013).
2 Cosmic Cycles Toys:

  • Here’s a great site that explains all about the upcoming equinox.
  • How about an awesome FREE app that keeps track of the Sun & Moon, Equinoxes, Solstices + more (iPhone + iPad only)?

If you live on the Northern Hemisphere, the Spring Equinox represents renewal time. We just had our introspective hibernation time & its time to emerge & start the growth cycle again. I view this time as the NEW beginning. My new year! Its a time to set goals & plan them out. What am I going to do & how am I going to do it? This is so exciting & so much FUN for me!!! Is it b/c I’m a Capricorn? Nah, I think if you have the right perspective on it, this can be fun no matter what sign  you are. 😉
Spring Equinox Crystals for Growth + Goal-Setting + Planning
The crystals that embody ideal energies for growth + planning for me are:

  • green aventurine
  • dendritic agate
  • chrysoprase

I will usually set them out as I fill out planning sheets, work with my biz coach, plan vacations with my hub-bub, Frankie, etc. This is for BIG PLANS & GOALS…for the whole year. If I need mediation time to figure things out then I will mediate & work with 1 of these stones.

Spring Equinox Crystals for Balance
No matter where you are on Mother Earth, the equinoxes are all about balance & harmony b/c this a time that we receive equal amounts of sun & moon energy. EVERYWHERE on the planet.

So 2 more crystals I like to use are:

  • moonstone
  • sunstone

I’ll use these stones on my altar within my sacred space or in a crystal grid to honor these energies.

I REALLY LOVE this time of year!

These stones…for me…embody balance between masculine & feminine energies, ying & yang, sun & moon, 2 polarities. The vibrational frequencies of these stones are PERFECT for reminding us to stay balanced in all aspects of our lives.

Welcome Spring (or happy Harvest if you’re below the equator!)
Super Sparkles to you today!!!

 

 

P.S. Not quite sure how to “work with” & meditate with your stones for clarity, Lima Bean? My Get to Know Your Crystals eKit can get you all set on that path for the cost of 2 coffees. 🙂 You can check that out here.
