Take Back Your Life: Crystals for Women
By Sonia Acone
Listen up, ladies! This month we’re going to step away from the all the “male holidays” for a moment and take a look at one that some may not know about, but is worth looking into. Susan B. Anthony Day, which falls on February 15, was the birth date of this remarkable woman who fought for women’s rights as well as the abolition of slavery. It commemorates the passing of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which gave citizens of the United States the right to vote, regardless of sex.
Susan B. Anthony (Feb.15, 1820 - March 13, 1906) was a staunch supporter of women’s rights. She fought to help women keep their earnings, own their own property, and the right for all people to an education regardless of their race. Together with her longtime friend, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Ms. Anthony strove to give women their independence. She devoted her life to the cause, and one can only imagine what life would be like if she hadn’t taken up the fight.
So, get comfy, have a cup of coffee/tea, and take a look at this list of crystals that can empower you, give you confidence, keep your patience, find your sanity, unleash your creativity and give you the wisdom to take back your life and make it the best it can be for YOU. And, you can always celebrate these other February holidays to get you in the mood: International Boost Self-Esteem Month; International Expect Success Month; Weddings Month; Plant the Seeds of Greatness Month and Spunky Old Broads Month. There are also days devoted to February: Dump Your Significant Jerk Day (3rd); World Marriage Day (10th); Satisfied Staying Single Day (11th); Madly in Love with Me Day (13th); League of Women Voter’s Day (14th), and let’s top it off with Margarita Day (22nd)!
