Coping With Crystals: 3 crystals getting me through Aries season
In this week’s coping with crystals on the DIOSA podcast, I I talked about my three favorite grounding and protection crystals - Hematite, Shungite and Obsidian. Aries season is playing too much right now and I’ve been feeling very scattered and all over the place. I just booked a flight on a whim the other day, and it is something I needed to get done, but I waited til the last minute and paid more than I should've. And with the moon in Sagittarius pulling us towards adventure, traveling and impulsivity, it makes a lot of sense. Aries season is also filled with a lot passion and short patience. Especially with old flings or people who know how to push your buttons. I’m personally focusing very hard on being rooted and committed during these very trying times.
If you’re out here dodging Aries season like me, here are some friends you want to get acquainted with.
Hematite – Hematite is a great crystal for balance, protection and grounding. If there’s anything you need in Aries season, is to have your feet planted firmly on the ground. You don’t want to make a decision you’re going to regret later. If you find a hematite worry stone, even better. Keep it in your pocket to use at times where you feel especially jittery and anxious.
Shungite – Shungite is my absolute favorite protection crystal. Because of what I do for a living and of course for Bare Mystics, I’m constantly on a mobile device. My body responds very quickly when I’ve been exposed for too long. I start to feel like an anvil is pressing down on my heart chakra, I get headaches and my eyes will start to hurt. I try my hardest to keep electronics out of my room at night, to give my body a fighting chance of recuperating overnight. But when I do happen to have my phone and other electronics in my room I place a piece of shungite near or on top of them and then another piece on my person.
Obsidian – Obsidian is a highly protective stone. I believe obsidian works as a fire wall of sorts for your aura and energies. I use this volcanic glass as a deflector for negative energies, including myself. So if I’m in a really shitty place energetically, which will make me vulnerable to negativity and energy vampires, and I need to be around others – I’ll have some on me to protect myself and prevent myself from spewing out my shit onto others or from absorbing it from others.
And that’s it! Those are my top three protection crystals for this Aries season raging alongside Mercury Retrograde.
