The sun is setting a little earlier, the nights are a bit cooler and the Fall Equinox has come and gone. Autumn is here, winter is right around the corner, and if you’re a sun worshiper like me, you’ve already begun to mourn the loss of its warmth. With a long winger looming on the horizon, I thought it might be smart to gather some crystals that you can add to your collection to hold onto some of that warmth.

Affirmation to Summon the Sun:

These stones play well together – create a little altar or grouping in a place where you meditate often or wear them to boost your mood all day. Pairing them with Labradorite, Citrine, or Clear Quartz will boost their properties. Think of them as a physical form of light therapy when you have the winter SADs.
