Crystals to make it through the Vernal Equinox

Every year around this time, I begin to feel restless--too many bad weather days have kept me cooped up in the house, and I long for the endless days of summer, not to mention the sunlight on which my mood so desperately depends. The anticipation of spring’s approach lightens my mood, and I can see hints of it everywhere; the trees begin to bud, and insects make an appearance after a long winter’s slumber. I am ready to camp, hike, and celebrate the Earth and all its verdant glory.

Indeed, I am not alone in my desire to celebrate the spring months. Both pagan and wiccan traditions celebrate the vernal equinox, which they refer to as Ostara. This spring holiday is named after the Anglo-Saxon goddess Eostre. The goddess of spring and flowers, Eostre is responsible for waking the Earth from its winter sleep. In the past, devotees celebrated Eostre with elaborate Ostara festivals that were filled with flowers, seeds, eggs and bunnies, symbolic representations of spring’s fecundity.

Though some continue to celebrate Ostara in the modern era, many people see the vernal equinox as a more introspective time for spiritual housekeeping. As the Earth warms and the day lengthens, the vernal equinox is a time to plant symbolic seeds of intention for the coming year. Following the cycle of the seasons, the intentions we plant now will be nurtured in the coming months and gently nudged into fruition. Crystals can help guide the process of these manifestations. As you set about the task of setting your goals this spring, consider employing the aid of these powerful crystals.

Moss Agate  - With its green, brown and white colors, Moss Agate is the very embodiment of nature and Earth. It is no wonder, then, that this handsome stone is associated with life, growth and fertility. Midwives and agriculturists alike have tapped into the power of Moss Agate since years of yore for the power and strength it lends to fragile beginnings. Personally, I love working with crystal eggs--especially when starting new ventures--and this Moss Agate Egg cannot be beat in terms of power and beauty. Symbolically, the egg is the ultimate archetypal form for fertility and new beginnings, as it holds the potential for life inside the walls of its shell. Let this Moss Agate egg work its magic on the dreams you hope to nurture.

Carnelian  - In order to grow and thrive, new beginnings require energy, and Carnelian is equivalent to a double-shot of espresso in the crystal world. A highly energizing stone, Carnelian is the perfect crystal to kickstart your new plans and give them the the energy to be actualized. With a Carnelian crystal, roadblocks will be minimalized--Carnelian will give you the energy and motivation to work through any hindrances. Place this Carnelian Gem Tree on a prominent shelf or desk. Consider it a manifestation of your seeds of intention.

Moldavite is a rare and powerful crystal, which people believe came to Earth on a giant meteorite. It contains both the energy of extraterrestrial lands and mother Earth. Only found along the banks of the river Moldau, Moldavite is prized for its ability to aid fertility and those seeking spiritual growth. As such, it's an appropriate and powerful crystal for the vernal equinox. It has the power to nurture beginning ventures and aid in spiritual transformation. Because Moldavite has a high vibration, it should be used in conjunction with a more grounding stone like Smoky Quartz. Try using these Moldavite Chunks as way stones in a crystal grid.

Green Aventurine  encourages perseverance and will help you keep the needed focus to actualize your goals. It is known as a stone of abundance, and as such, Green Aventurine will attract that which is needed for your journey. I love working with Green Aventurine Skulls. The combination of a Green Aventurine medium with a skull form, magnifies the energies of attraction, as a properly bonded skull will continually work on its users behalf.

By using the aforementioned crystals as tools, your 2017 is bound to be a year of successful growth and change. Don't let the energy and opportunities afforded by the vernal equinox to pass you by. Use the balance of the day to set level-headed goals for the months to come, and watch how your seeds of intention blossom and grow.

I was on a long distance road trip over the Easter holiday. I exited the highway about a mile from my destination, when my car decided to just completely stop functioning. We got the car towed to an auto shop, and I was not surprised to see that the lot was overflowing with broken-down vehicles--other victims of Mercury retrograde!

Keep Calm, and Carry These Four Crystals During the Eclipse/Equinox Window!

by Adrienne Goff March 05, 2017

Energy experts are calling 2017 the year of the big reset. And right now we are in the middle of a cosmic window, punctuated by two eclipses and an equinox, which is bringing in especially intense, transformative energies. We had a set of eclipses in February, a lunar eclipse on the 11th and a solar eclipse on the 26th. Eclipses are always times of sudden, unexpected change that can shake up your life, especially if you have been sweeping problems under the rug. The veils are thinner during eclipse times, allowing you to tune into the unseen realms and to access your subconscious mind. The shockwaves of eclipses can be felt and experienced for up to six months after they occur, and they are ultimately a gift to help you hit the reset button in your life.
