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!

** 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.
