Welcome to Scorpio season! Whether it's your zodiac sign or you just want to embody Scorpio's energy, these are your go-to crystals to work with.
SCORPIO ENERGY + CHARACTERISTICS
Scorpio season officially kicks off on October 23 and brings with it the energy of transformation, a time of inward reflection, and a drive to commit to your goals.
With Scorpio's ruling planet, Pluto (and/or Mars depending on who you ask), and its ruling element of water, Scorpios tend to be known for their intensity, passion, confidence, and intuition. This water sign is said to represent both the very best and worst in human nature. So, Scorpios, and everyone else during this season, should focus on finding balance and harmony in all areas of life and work, as well as within. Another common characteristic is that they are protective of their thoughts and feelings. Therefore, they won't reveal much about themselves but are able to intuit much about other people.
Whether you are a Scorpio sun sign or not, the right Scorpio crystals can help you with increasing your creativity or intuition, protecting your own energy or space, or supporting your drive to achieve your goals. Scorpio's personality can be a bit dark and mysterious, making this time perfect for dedicated shadow work before this season wraps up on November 21.
