The time for abundance, strength, and courage is here, as we enter the sign of Leo. The ruling planet of Leo is the Sun, which gives those born under this sign fiery and passionate nature.
Leos truly are the Kings of the Jungle – their sense of self-esteem and willpower is nothing short of amazing. They are generous and don’t hesitate to stand up for those in need.
Thanks to Leo’s influence, we should all feel a boost of vitality and self-worth during the coming weeks.
To make the most of all this uplifting energy, I have chosen 3 crystals for you to work with during this Leo Season–
If you pick up a Peridot crystal, you can feel almost instantly how it nourishes your soul and replenishes your energy levels.
This crystal has incredibly rejuvenating and uplifting vibes that can brighten even the gloomiest days.
Peridot crystal stones are closely connected with the Solar Plexus and Heart Chakra, helping to heal and balance both of these chakras.
It is a great crystal to soothe heartache and bring a renewed sense of hope and optimism into your life.
Out of all the Sun Signs, Leos seem to be the most self-confident, therefore, it may come as a surprise that many of them have insecurities hidden deep inside. They tend to cover up their weaknesses and vulnerability to protect themselves.
Peridot is a great crystal for Leos and for the rest of us to work with this season, as it can help to release emotional traumas and past wounds.
With the exuberant vibes of the Leo Season, balancing and purifying ourselves becomes essential.
We all pick up emotional debris from other people, which can affect our mood and well-being on a daily basis.
If you feel like you’re a bit all over the place and having a hard time focusing on your priorities, you probably need to ground yourself.
Working with a Smoky Quartz crystal will help to balance all your chakras, while detoxifying your body and mind.
Holding a piece of Smoky Quartz in your hand during meditation helps you focus your mind. This simple yet elegant crystal helps you release anything that’s out of alignment with your life.
The shadow side of Leo is being stubborn and inflexible. If the shadow side takes over, Leos can fall so in love with their own ideas and perspectives that they may become uncompromising. This is just another form of attachment.
I believe that many of us have experienced first-hand how attachment brings suffering. No matter whether we’re attached to people, or ideas and concepts, it always breeds anxiety and fear.
Turn to Smoky Quartz if you’re struggling to release an attachment. Its high vibrational energies will calm your mind and help you let go. You will be filled with patience, forgiveness, and humbleness.
It is also a great idea to place a piece of Smoky Quartz in your workspace and near electronic devices, as it has the ability to absorb electromagnetic radiation.
Leos love to be in the spotlight. They are born entertainers with their exuberance and great sense of humor. They enjoy social interaction and often have a huge circle of friends.
Carnelian is a perfect match with the vibes of the Leo Season. This crystal steals the show with its vibrant energy.
Its bright orange hues are juicy and energizing and you just can’t help feeling uplifted when working with this crystal.
Carnelian heals and open up blockages in the Sacral Chakra. It gives you a boost of optimism and strength, so you can live your life to the fullest.
Just like a true Leo, you will feel ambitious and motivated to work on your goals and turn your dreams into reality.
In case you are struggling with extreme fatigue and exhaustion, Carnelian would be my number one choice to turn to. It helps restore your energy levels and passion for life.
If your Sacral Chakra is healthy, you feel confident, enthusiastic, and empowered. Your personal relationships flourish and you can easily breathe life into your creative ideas and visions.
Carnelian teaches us not to be afraid to surrender control and take a leap of faith into the unknown.
It seems to me that one of the biggest lessons for many of us is to learn to trust our gut instinct and follow our intuition when making important decisions in our life.
If you feel stuck and unable to move forward, Carnelian will help you attract positive change and exciting new opportunities.
It raises your vibration by making you feel more joyful, generous, and kindhearted towards others. This, in turn, will invite more benevolent people, success, and abundance into your life.
Leos are drawn to luxury and high-end lifestyle, so this crystal of ambition and abundance is a perfect choice to tap into the powerful vibes of the upcoming season.
I do hope that these 3 crystals will help you this Leo Season.
My dad was a true Leo – incredibly generous, kind-hearted and always taking pleasure in entertaining others with his great sense of humor.
He passed away 11 years ago in an accident, but I know that his energy will live on forever in those cheerful moments he shared with his friends and loved ones.
I wish you all an amazing Leo Season, and let’s remind ourselves from time to time to make the most of each moment!
