Balance and Peace: Crystals for Libra Season

After a month of planning and harnessing all of that #makeitdo Virgo energy, it’s time to settle into a routine that will help you achieve the goals you have set for yourself.

In Libra season, we learn to balance the practices of nurturing ourselves with nurturing our relationships with others—especially those who can help us achieve our goals and support us throughout the process. Libra energy is all about self-indulgence and consciously exuding the magic that creates reciprocal partnerships.

A time of taking care of yourself so that you can both be and attract a great partner, Libra season is about internal work for external reward… which doesn't have to be as hard as it sounds. Here are some crystals and affirmations you can use to embrace Libra energy fully.

Lapis Lazuli

Libra’s need for balance often results in people-pleasing. This vibrant blue stone will help you tap into your intuition and assists you when you need to express yourself in a diplomatic way. If blending your work and your interpersonal relationships requires you to assert yourself in a way you haven’t previously, this stone will help you keep your needs at the forefront and say no to the things that don’t serve you or your goals.

Affirmation for Lapis Lazuli

Please grant me the clarity of mind to welcome people and things that support the life and work that I see for myself come into fruition.

Opal

This iridescent stone brings all of your personality traits to the surface for examination and transformation. If you have long-buried desires, emotions, or feelings that you want to access, this might be the perfect stone to carry with you. However, it amplifies all of your traits — even the negative ones — and confronting them may feel uncomfortable, but will ultimately be productive. This stone is especially useful when you’re examining what relationships you need to nurture or let go.

There are three basic types of opal: black, white, and boulder. Black opal will help you face your darkest fears. White opal will enlighten any and all emotional patterns that need to be cleared. If you’re wondering which you should use, I’m going to go with both!

Affirmation for Opal

I have the courage and wisdom I need to navigate my deepest fears and examine harmful patterns that negatively affect my relationships or hinder my personal and professional growth.

Citrine

With all of the creativity, passion, and ambition that Libra can bring, there is often a period of analysis paralysis that can lead to procrastination, or worse yet, inactivity. That’s where Citrine comes in. Citrine will help you approach the goals and plans you made during Virgo season with confidence. It serves as a reminder that you actually know what you’re doing and can also assist you in releasing those negative thoughts or fears that Opal may have brought to the surface.

Affirmation for Citrine

I have the confidence to accomplish my goals and embrace the success that is waiting for me.

Rose quartz

You would be hard-pressed to find any love ritual—be it self-love, romantic love, or platonic love— that doesn’t mention rose quartz and with good reason. This stone brings loving energy to all of your relationships and opens your heart to give and receive unconditional love.

Affirmation for Rose Quartz

I am open to give and receive unconditional love, forgiveness, and compassion.

Libra season invites us to renew or build our self-confidence and grow emotionally and spiritually. It reminds us to look to our communities to provide the support and encouragement we need to reach or personal and professional goals. Let’s use this time to reflect on both our inner and outer life and decide if we’ve struck the right balance.
