Use your seasonal stones to jump start the new year!
If, like most people, you find yourself making plans and resolutions for the coming year, choose a seasonal
gemstone to get your goals off to the right start. A stone that you can wear, touch or view every day will act
as a physical reminder as well as an energy boost to achieve the things you most want in your future. Choosing
the stone is as personal as your goals are. The stones listed above are particularly powerful during this season,
and so would be good for the main stone or to complement your personal birthstone or zodiac stone.
Depending on your purpose, you can create a combination of stones that will stay with you throughout the year.
For example, if I intend to lose weight this coming year, I might tuck an amethyst inside the cavern of a celestite
geode and place the combination somewhere in my kitchen. The amethyst will help me overcome my addiction to fattening
foods and the celestite calls upon my guardian angel for willpower during inevitable weak moments.
If health is my concern, I would choose a healing stone appropriate to my physical
complaint and use it with bloodstone to heighten the energy of the healing stone.
Find love and passion...
I could use a garnet pendant charged on a moonstone
sphere to bring me passionate love. (Use a sunstone sphere to increase
personal sexual attraction.) A Rose Quartz sphere placed in a circle on my altar alongside my heart birthstone of chrysocolla
will keep my life vibrant and purposeful.

Seasonal Gemstone Blessings
Sit in a comfortable position with your seasonal gemstone in front of you. Think about the blessings in your
life and the particular gifts that your stone offers. What are you grateful for at this moment? What have you achieved
in your life so far that gives you joy and pride? There is powerful magic in recognizing all that you already
Now visualize what you would like to accomplish in the coming months or year. Remember to include spiritual
achievements as these often act as a springboard for material success.
Breathe steadily and deeply, inhaling and exhaling slowly for about twenty minutes. As you meditate, send the
positive energy of your thoughts into the stone. Place the stone or sphere in a place where you will view (or wear) it often.
Whenever you receive a big or small blessing, recharge the stone in the same manner. The gemstone blessings will be there anytime you need them!
