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: crystals for women.
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.
“Failure is Impossible” - Susan B. Anthony
Carnelian, Moonstone, Smokey Quartz, Mother of Pearl, Rose Quartz, Ruby - what do they have in common? They are so different in their color, look, feel, and energy, yet what unites them is that they all support the Divine Feminine in different ways. The term Divine Feminine here simply means honoring the feminine aspects of human nature that have been suppressed throughout the centuries because they were emphasized as “less” - less important, less valuable, less real, and less needed. Intuition, feelings, bodily awareness, self-worth, and being mindful of nature’s cycles, among other things, were shamed, hidden, and ignored. The consequences of this are serious. Everything natural that is repressed manifests itself eventually, but in ways that may be devastating—as blockages, pain, illness, or loss. This is evident if you look to nature for clues—or even if you look at the basic laws of physics. New medical evidence confirms this connection between inner and outer worlds, between feelings and bodies, thoughts and reality.
If you feel that you have emphasized (or have been forced to emphasize) masculine elements of your nature throughout your life, Carnelian is a great stone to get you started with connecting to your feminine side. It is a quickly acting stone, so you may notice changes within a few days of wearing or carrying it. It will first start working on the level that was neglected the most. If Carnelian is a stone of day, making you feel vibrantly alive, opening you to the world, and inviting the world to see your brilliance, Moonstone is a stone of the night, making you turn inside, become more introspective, and private.
