I wanted to share some simple crystals with you for times you may be feeling in a slump, tired for no reason, or lacking motivation. Phases we all go through. And then I realized why I was compelled to do a quick blog post about this. We just moved into Saturn Retrograde 2019. It started on April 29th and won’t end till September 18th. Now I’m in no way an expert on astrology, I’ve only just recently started dabbling into it. But I do know that people who were born during a Saturn retrograde will be really affected during this time.
*”Natal Saturn retrograde could show as sadness, depression, loneliness, tiredness or lack of motivation. Disrespect of parents and authority figures may be holding you back. Whatever is stunting your productiveness is what Saturn retrograde focuses on. This could well have been an ongoing problem hindering success over many incarnations. Events or relationships will keep reinforcing the problem area this life, especially during Saturn retrograde phases, until you master it.”
So listen up Saturn retrograde babies and anyone else who’s feeling the effects during this next several months. Surround yourself with things that motivate and energize you.
Don’t want to exercise? Find a new playlist to inspire you!
Having trouble shaking off the grogginess in the morning? Try some a.m. yoga!
Writers block? Pick up your laptop and head outside for some new energy!
You get what I mean. Don’t let retrograde get you!
And pick up a few of these while you’re at it. They’re pretty, and they’re compact so they can go anywhere with you and they will give some much needed positive and motivational energy ! I don’t usually shop online for crystals and minerals (I like to feel their energy). **So find a little metaphysical shop in your neighborhood and go explore and see what “feels” right to you!
Clear Quartz is the go-to crystal for practically anything. The energy of Quartz amplifies your own vibrational energy and the energy of anything else nearby. It can also help you feel more at ease and less stressed out as well. Clear quartz resonates to your needs. It's a fabulous stone to fill with positive intention.
Ruby helps increase your energy levels by stimulating the energy of your circulatory system, increasing blood flow. Rubies carry an inextinguishable flame within that speaks towards passion and prosperity.
Amber is said to harness the energy of the sun. It also brings the user positive energy. Amber is a great stone for writers and writers block. Amber also assists with memory.
Amethyst provides protective energy around you when you're holding it or wearing it. Amethyst boosts hormone production, tunes the endocrine system and boosts metabolism. Place this crystal on your Third Eye chakra (in between your eyebrows in the center of your forehead), for a boost of energy and as a psychic amplifier.
Carnelian helps to boost stamina and can be very beneficial when it's worn on the body throughout the day providing you with consistent energy. This is a great motivator stone.
Seraphinite, is a stone of light energy, as in higher vibrational energy. This stone heightens the sense and amplifies any "gifts" the user has.
Fluorite can really help your focus. It's also useful for sharpening and narrowing your awareness within the environment you are in when using it.
Rose quartz is amazing for opening your heart up to a higher vibration of awareness, both for love of self and love extending outward to all of humanity.
Black Obsidian soaks up negative energy like a sponge. This can help lift you out of the fog so to speak. Allowing you to experience the positive energies as the negative ones filter out.
Ocean Jasper allows you to be lifted above yourself to connect to life all around you. A high vibrational stone, it also clears the negative energy that you may feel. Ocean Jasper is a stone that will help see you through storms in your life by supporting your way through.

** I highly recommend you only shop for crystals at shop that has an established business (been around a bit). Shopping for crystals at places like Home Goods you will often find fake crystals that were created as simple decoration, which is why they are sold in a store like Home Goods.
