It’s already September, which means it’s time for another round of our favorite crystals. This month, we’re looking at the best stones for Virgos and Libras in your life, or just the ones that will help to harness all that early Fall energy you may be feeling yourself.
Lepidolite – Best Stone for an Anxious Mind
For all the amazing things that Virgos are known for—like their tireless service, their love of animals, and their incredible organizational skills—a calm mind isn’t exactly one of them. Ruled by Mercury, these Earth signs are very demanding of themselves and set a high bar for the people around them. That means it can be easy for anxiety to set in when things don’t go according to plan.
Lepidolite is a great stone for helping a Virgo (or anyone else suffering from anxiety) to focus when they want to slow down the mental gears and bring some peace into their day. One of the primary components of this stone is Lithium, which we know from its wide use in objects like batteries, Nirvana songs, and mood-stabilizing drugs. It brings a balancing energy that’s perfect when we feel like our minds are running away from us.
Here’s a little mindfulness exercise you can do when you’re feeling overwhelmed:
- Grab a piece of lepidolite and hold it in your palm.
- List five things you can see.
- List four things you can feel.
- List three things you can hear.
- List two things you can smell.
- List one thing you can taste. (Don’t lick the rock.)
See if you feel a little better when you get to the end of the list. If not, start again!
Amazonite – Stone of Courage
Amazonite is an amazing stone when you want to summon the bravery within you. Known as the Stone of Courage, it’s a great gift for the students in your life who may be nervous about another (or a first!) year of school starting in September. It can also help to balance your throat chakra, allowing you to speak your truth with kindness and compassion.
Think of this stone as one that can connect your mouth, hands, and heart. First, identify what you really want or need. Then, identify how to approach it calmly. Lastly, give yourself the little push you need to take the first step.
The obelisks pictured above pack a big amount of Amazonite energy and would make a great addition to your altar or meditation space.
The Agate family truly has something for everyone, and Moss Agate does not disappoint. As we approach the Fall Equinox, this is definitely one of the best crystals for the month. With it’s lush and Earthy vibes, it’s often connected with farming and agricultural practices. It’s a great pick for cultivating abundance while we kick off the harvest season.
Like the Earth itself, this stone is a big balancer and can be an excellent choice for a Libra. Libras are ruled by Venus, and Venus loves the beauty and organic order of the natural environment. Moss Agate contains the crystalline structure of stone with clouds of mossy green iron deposits, giving it a unique and captivating appearance. It’s a wonderful choice to round out your month and prepare for the next season!
