Snowflake Obsidian and Kyanite

As we step into September it seems unreal that we are two-thirds of the way through this year already. Has anyone started thinking about Christmas yet? I must admit I did see a few boxes of mince pies on sale in my local supermarket, so the shops are certainly thinking about it!

It can be hard not to let these last few months of the year run away with us, our lives can be so busy and move so quickly (and not just because the shops are always planning a season ahead of us!)

But, every now and then we are given a chance to take a break and have some breathing space and, astrologically speaking, September brings a quiet month for us to do just that. Consequently, I have chosen the combination of Snowflake Obsidian and Kyanite as my Crystals for this month as these are fantastic crystals for taking care of our wellbeing as a whole. 

Snowflake Obsidian is one of my favourite crystals. Firstly, who doesn’t like snowflakes? Secondly, it is a really easy crystal to identify so everyone should be able to recognise it. Its black and white colouring reminds me of Ying/Yang balance and the fact that we all carry both light and dark elements within us. Snowflake Obsidian is very helpful in finding the balance between the two. It is an excellent grounding tool and very helpful to keep with you when you feel your mind, body and soul need to reconnect and re-align. 

Any of the darker coloured stones are excellent for grounding and Snowflake Obsidian is no exception. If you have one, then carry it around with you as often as possible throughout the month and allow yourself to feel the stress falling away from you. 

As we begin September we are (as always) in Virgo season. Virgo is an Earth sign and it is a good time for us to get in touch with nature, especially when the New Moon occurs on the 6th September. Meditating with Snowflake Obsidian at this time would be especially helpful. It has a purifying energy which can be useful for clearing the mind and bringing peace.

Later in the month, on the 20th September, we have a Full Moon in Pisces. This can be an incredibly sensitive time as the watery Piscean energy flows over all of us. I have chosen Kyanite which I feel will be a help during this time as it is attuned to the throat chakra and can help us to speak the truth when we are feeling a little overwhelmed and confused. 

Kyanite can also help us connect with the spirit world or our guides. Sometimes in ‘quieter’ months we often feel drawn to do this, as when we have a lull in our excessively busy lives we can feel the yearn to find out what is coming next.

Unfortunately, I do not have that answer to what exactly is coming next for us all, but, I am aware that the energies and astrological shifts within October and November are going to be pretty huge, which is why this crystal combination will give us a great chance to ground and feel balanced, and assist in getting in tune with our intuition and guides for whatever exciting changes and transformations are in store. 

I hope you have a wonderful September and get the chance to take time out and balance your mind, body and spirit. Whatever crystals you choose to work with over the next month, I hope they give you whatever you need.
