Find the Available Joy: Crystals for Aries Season

 

Aries season is always one of turbulent change, but this year it has brought disruption in a way that most of us didn't expect. A global pandemic has forced us all to slow down, to pay attention to the simple things, and face what's real and true. Life, as we know it, has changed into something nearly unrecognizable and will probably be forever altered. More than ever, we, as individuals and as a collective, must take control and take action in responsible ways.

Anger, confusion, anxiety, fear, uncertainty — these are all emotions we're probably feeling at this time. It is crucial to find a way to move beyond them and find the available joy. Here are some crystals that I hope will help with
that process.

Black Obsidian

With a constant barrage of information coming from every corner, it's important to remain grounded and avoid getting caught up in the panic that surfaces in times of uncertainty. This gloomy black stone will help you cleanse all of the negativity from your person and environment, leaving space for you to fill it
with positive thoughts and practices.

I am safe. I recognize and release underlying patterns that create a negative reality.

Citrine

A lot of us are experiencing disruption and uncertainty around our work and businesses right now. We're also trying to find a way to shift and change our work so that it can support us through this and any other changes on the horizon. This pale yellow or deep amber stone will increase your clarity, enhance your creativity, and give you the perseverance you need to
manifest that new idea into being.

Aquamarine

As chaotic and uncertain as things are at the moment, we only need to look out the window to remind ourselves that the sun rises, the world turns, and spring always brings growth and abundance. If you're finding it difficult to redirect your emotions into something productive at this time, you can always turn that focus on cultivating spiritual and emotional abundance. The blue-green stone will help you gently sift through any emotions that arise during this period of transition by removing resistance and helping you overcome any fear
of the future

Rose Quartz

It goes without saying that in these trying times, we all need a lot more gentleness, emotional healing, and love for ourselves, our loved ones, our friends, and our community. Everyone's favorite crystal is perfect for that and will help dissolve feelings of isolation, and can move us all toward a healing union.

I usually try to layer in a bit of humor into these articles, but it was harder to do this month. I hope these crystals and affirmations will help you navigate through these trying times. One of the bright spots in all of this has been witnessing how the online and local creative community has stepped up to take care of each other. Strangely, in this time where we're supposed to be practicing social distance, I feel closer and more connected to my community than ever. I hope you're finding the same solace. I will be clutching my rose quartz, and loving you all from at least six feet away. Take care and wash your hands.
