If you love astrology but are unfamiliar with the specifications, Sagittarius season starts November 22nd and ends December 21st. This is the time when the sun aligns with Sagittarius, coinciding with the end of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. Being the last of three fire signs in the zodiac after Aries and Leo, Sagittarius energy is ruled by Jupiter and brings out many new opportunities for adventure as well as financial endeavors. People born during this time are known as Sagittarians, but whether you fall under that zodiac sign or not, the season’s fiery energy affects everyone in different ways depending on your personality, how you deal with change, and your adaptability in general. Given the combination of energies of the archer, Jupiter (ruler of the gods), and the element of fire, it’s not surprising that some people find this time extremely overwhelming. For Sagittarians in particular, being a mutable sign, this energy is not unfamiliar and they are able to adapt fairly quickly to the changes. However, if you’re someone who likes to keep things just the way they are, you may feel Sagittarius’ energy more strongly during this season, but it’s important to be patient and take things one step at a time. Fortunately, there are healing crystals that can help with these challenging situations. Here are some crystals and how you can benefit from them during Sagittarius season.
Turquoise is perfect for the adventurous and travelling Sagittarian as it is known to protect the wearer, boost creativity, and give the motivation needed to finish those unfinished projects. Turquoise is also known to open the throat chakra and help with communication while calming hot tempers, making it the perfect companion during Sagittarius season when fiery energies can get out of hand.
Topaz has been prized for thousands of years as its powerful energies lend favor to manifestation and enhancement of energies. Although it exists in many colors, the most associated with Sagittarius season are blue topaz, imperial or golden topaz, and clear topaz. Imperial or Golden topaz opens the solar plexus chakra to strengthen willpower and allow you to manifest your dreams. Blue topaz clears the mind and instills focus so the curious Sagittarian may absorb all the knowledge their big hearts desire; it also aids in clear communication so too many lines don’t get crossed. Clear topaz is connected to the crown chakra, working to clear out negative energy and help you ascend to those higher levels of consciousness. It improves spirituality and enhances the thought process to better connect with the world around you, especially important during this time.
Lapis Lazuli is an official birthstone of Sagittarius as it enhances the sign’s greatest strengths and traits. Although Sagittarians are great communicators, they have a tendency to speak their mind before properly thinking it through; this is where lapis lazuli comes in, opening the throat chakra and encouraging thoughtful self-expression.
Azurite is a stone of enlightenment and truth-seeking that has been used by psychics, mystics, and practitioners for hundreds of years. It opens the third eye chakra to boost intuition and form a deeper connection with the divine. Allowing you to access your subconscious mind, it brings deeply hidden inner truths to light, thus opening the path to enlightenment.
Picasso Jasper is another interesting stone that promotes intuition. It cultivates energies of imagination and helps to assimilate original ideas, helping you adjust to Sagittarius season and find your own path through this tricky time. It opens the root and sacral chakras to promote protection and grounding, providing a sense of calm and reassurance.
Sodalite calms and clarifies, opening the throat and third eye chakras to promote intuition and healthy communication. As the Sagittarius spirit burns with passion and curiosity, sodalite clears the way for acquiring knowledge and enhancing the intellect. For the Sagittarius who often commits to too many things at once, sodalite calms the mind and instills focus so you can get the jobs done.
Obsidian is known to ground and empower while providing insight and protection. Black obsidian clarifies the mind so you can sit and reflect, promoting insight and solutions to long-standing problems. Golden obsidian’s energy is lighter than black obsidian’s, but it is still a great stone of self-empowerment. It opens your eyes and strengthens your willpower so you can move forward on your path in life.
The best way to utilize these crystals for Sagittarius season is to meditate with them, but it could also be enough to just wear them or carry them in your pocket. If you want to be a little bit extra, you could also set up an altar in honor of Sagittarius season, or even just a crystal grid or random crystal arrangement. According to the Feng Shui bagua map, the best place to keep these crystals for Sagittarius season or to practice your meditation with them is in the South East or rear left of the home, the area responsible for Wealth and Prosperity; this goes especially well with Jupiter’s energy. You can also keep your crystals for Sagittarius season in the South West or front left of the home (the area responsible for Knowledge and Self-cultivation; perfect for the philosophizing energies of Sagittarius) or in the North West or front right of the home, the area responsible for travel, complementing Sagittarius’ sense of adventure and spontaneity.
