Ah, the fresh smell of Autumn air. My personal favorite time of the year for several reasons. It seems that in the fall we return to a bit of routine and anticipation. While summer is wonderful for the live in the moment adventures and spontaneous weekends away the fall is where I really feel like I thrive. There is a transition in all of nature that happens when we move from Summer to Fall. We are moving from a Pitta season of fire and water, action and forward movement; to then a Vata season of air and space, contemplation and reflection. There is a natural release that happens - the perfect example being the trees releasing their leaves.
Within this new routine we find a moment to breathe and catch our barrings about us. When we take the opportunity to release what no longer serves us it opens the door to more supportive energies. Below you will find a list of crystals to help with personal empowerment, energy, balance, joy and stability.
