7 Empowering Crystals to Work With This Summer

The hot summer days and long hot nights are just around the corner as we make our way closer to summer. The earth is flourishing, the sun is growing in strength, and all around, the world just seems a little merrier. For that reason, it’s time we start bringing out all our summer-themed décor and items for our practices, such as crystals aligned with the sun and its energy. 

In the summer, the energy around us is new, fresh, and beaming with potential. New confidence and adventure inspire our world, helping us to strengthen our personal power, overcome obstacles, and live our life a little more freely. Not to mention, summer can also invoke feelings of joy, passion, sensuality, and grounding within us and can be an excellent time to work with some summer-themed tools. For that reason, changing up the crystals you work with each season is incredibly important and can help you to channel this into your life and your practices and even help to make your intentions and rituals that much stronger.

So in this article, we’re going to share with you our top 7 favorite crystals you can begin to incorporate into your summer routine to help connect deeper with the season in a truly magical way. Let's get started.

5. Carnelian

Next, another great stone of the summer is tiger’s eye. With a beautiful layered array of colors in brown, gold, and black, tiger’s eye is a unique stone connected with the energy of the sun above and the earth below and is most commonly associated with the energies of balance. Connected with the sacral, root, solar plexus chakra, and the sun-child of the Zodiac, Leo, the tiger’s eye is said to carry strong energies of confidence, protection, vitality, and grounding. Not to mention, it is also believed to be rich in powerful confidence-boosting energies that can help you to overcome fears with a stronger sense of courage in pursuing your goals.
