Seasonal living means embracing many layers of nature, from aesthetic to energetic. Crystals provide a great opportunity to bring both the look and feel, but also the vibes, of each season into your space (or onto your fingers, ears, or neck), allowing you to sink deeper into the energies of each season to nurture yourself and tap into the wisdom of the flow of the earth.
Here I'm sharing three crystals for each of the four seasons, combining aesthetics with energies to recommend stones to place around your house or on your body to use crystals as a tool to embrace seasonal living.
Crystals for Spring
Spring is a season of renewal. It abounds with the energies of growth and newness and is painted the color of fresh leaves, daffodils, and clear blue skies. It's an opportune time to plan for the year and plant seeds that allow you to flourish with nature.

Summer is a season of infinite potential and expansion. Warm and bright, the longer days of Summer are for taking action, whether that means getting to work or taking playtime seriously. With adventures waiting around every corner, the boundless energy of Summer asks us, "Why not?"

Sunstone appears to capture the bright rays of the Summer sun with its orange color and flashy inclusions. It embodies the properties of solar light – strength, warmth, and strong will. Use it to shake off any sluggish feelings to get the most out of your day (or night).

Crystals for Autumn
Cooler temperatures and shorter days let you know that Autumn has arrived. It's time to harvest the seeds of intention planted earlier in the year and practice gratitude for the bounty received. A season of transition, Autumn is a time of wrapping up old projects, letting go, and preparing for a restful Winter.

Crystals for Winter
Cold and dark, the Winter season is for resting. Ironically, Winter is often the busiest time of the year and it's easy to find yourself overloaded and overwhelmed. Take a page from nature's book and give yourself a break. The final season of the year is a time to reset in preparation for restarting the cycle and doing the whole thing over again next year.
