Embrace Nature’s Cycles: Exploring the Best Crystals for the Seasons

When it comes to the best crystals for the seasons, I like to lean into my intuition and think about how each season makes me feel. Then, I connect that feeling with a crystal that evokes those same feelings.

Living in the Midwest, I’m always struck by the beauty of the changing seasons. It’s autumn now and I have found myself (more than once this week) admiring the colorful tree canopies and the scent of the Fall air. There are many things I love about living in Wisconsin, but the distinct change from one season to the next is definitely in my top five.

I do realize, however, that you may not experience traditional seasons where you live. But no matter where you reside, you can look for your own seasonal markers to track the change in annual cycles. For example, instead of Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter, you may have a sunny season and a rainy season. Or perhaps there are times of year when your local birds migrate, when certain plants come into bloom, or there are other changes or local celebrations that help you track the passage of time.

These natural rhythms aren’t just an external thing that we experience in the world around us…they’re also so important for helping us stay in tune with our internal cycles.

The seasonal changes bring subtle changes to how we feel inside; they mimic our own need for growth, creativity, reflection, and rest. Crystals can help us get internally aligned with these external energies so we can get in sync with the world around us.

The following are some of the best crystals for the seasons and embracing these different seasonal energies.

Best Crystals for the Seasons – Spring:

  1. Carnelian – With colors ranging from burnt orange to vivid sunset tangerine, Carnelian embodies the warmth that is beginning to return to the land at this time of year. Carnelian corresponds well here due to its fiery, transformational energy.
  2. Red Pyrope Garnet – This rich, earthy stone supports us as we get more present in our bodies as we await the arrival of spring – stretching, awakening, and rejuvenating ourselves now in preparation for the return of the Sun. Garnet with its deep red color is related to healing and balancing the energy body.
  3. Pyrite – This stone shines like the golden rays of the sun – bringing strength, motivation, and excitement for the season ahead! Pyrite, because of its high Iron content, energetically supports healing and grounding into Earth energy.

One Way to Work with Crystals for the Spring Season:

Choose at least three Spring stones from the list above (more is even better!), and take them outdoors on a Spring day after the flowers have started blooming. Spend some time walking around with your crystals, collecting a few colorful spring blossoms. Find a comfortable spot and allow yourself to make an arrangement of flowers, petals, and your Spring stones in a pattern that’s pleasing to you.

After you’ve created your Springtime nature pattern, make yourself comfortable and spend a few moments gazing at it. Then, as long as it’s safe to do so, close your eyes and breathe in the essence of Springtime. After a few minutes, when you feel ready, open your eyes and hold your hands above the crystals to charge yourself up with their energy. Then remove your crystals, leaving the flowers and petals in place as an offering to the land.


Best Crystals for the Seasons – Summer:

  1. Aquamarine – With its soft, gentle energy, Aquamarine (also known as Blue Beryl) helps you soak up the energy of Summer and go with the flow to have new experiences rooted in the energies of clarity, insight, and inspiration.
  2. Ocean Jasper – Ocean Jasper has the most beautiful orbicular patterns, resembling the Sun in the sky overhead on a Summer day. It’s swirling patterns connect you with the energies of growth, expansion, and inner radiance.
  3. Morganite – This pink variety of Beryl calls in the energy of connection and amplifies your intentions for the Summer season.

One Way to Work with Crystals for the Summer Season:

For this seasonal activity, you’ll need a few inexpensive crystal chips, and a packet of flower seeds. Find a space where you can plant your seeds and tend to them as they sprout, grow, and eventually, bloom! Be sure to choose non-invasive seeds and only plant them where you have permission (a small flower pot works great with most seeds if you’re unable to plant directly in the ground). Start by placing the crystal chips in a small circle on the ground (or on the soil around the edge of your flower pot).

As you place each stone, focus on the energy of the Summer season and its connection with growth and expansion. See this energy become anchored in the earth as you place each small crystal chip. Then, follow the directions on the seed packet and sow your flower seeds in the center of the crystal circle. Offer these seeds to the earth in gratitude for the abundance of the Summer season. Care for and nurture the seeds until they sprout, grow, and bloom! Leave the flowers outdoors to be visited by friendly pollinators and soak up the summer sunshine. If you’re a savvy gardener, you may even want to save some seeds from these special plants to sow again next year!


Best Crystals for the Seasons – Autumn:

  1. Amber – Ancient people thought Amber was fossilized sunlight because it perfectly captures the warmth of the Sun’s rays. This stone represents the nurturing light of the Sun, and its influence on the growth of the crops being harvested in the Autumn season.
  2. Prehnite with Epidote – This crystal is deeply connected with the energy of gratitude, generosity, and thankfulness and is a perfect companion for Fall.
  3. Sodalite – Sodalite helps us tap into the energy of connection and preparation as well as reminding of us of the importance of community. It’s a fantastic stone to get you in flow with the energy of the Fall harvest and all that comes with it.

One Way to Work with Crystals for the Autumn Season:

In the spirit of giving and gratitude, this simple seasonal activity only requires one stone. Choose any of the stones from the list of Autumn crystals above, or choose a stone from your personal collection that is very special to you. Give this stone as a gift to someone you love, to a stranger, or to someone you think would benefit from its energy. Let them know you’re giving it to them in the spirit of sharing the abundance of the season and tell them a bit about your good wishes for them as they work with it in the coming season.

Best Crystals for the Seasons – Winter:

  1. Sangre Calcite – Also known as Red Calcite or as Blood Calcite, this stone is deep red in color and is strongly connected with the powerful fire element. It’s a great helper for boosting your feelings of vitality and motivation during the colder months.
  2. Black Moonstone – A darkly reflective crystal perfect for promoting intuition and personal insight during the Winter season (a powerful time for self-reflection). Work with this stone any time you feel ready to ask big questions and turn inward to receive the answer.
  3. Howlite – This stone is associated with the world of dreams and that which lies “beyond the veil,” making it a good complement for connection with ancestors and the spirit realm during the stillness of Winter.

One Way to Work with Crystals for the Winter Season:

One of the best ways to slow down and really connect with the stillness of the winter season is to create a seasonal nature altar. Cleanse your crystal and yourself. Then, hold your chosen Winter Season crystal in your hands and take a few deep breaths. Feel the energy of this crystal enter through the palms of your hands and slowly spread throughout your body. Set an intention for your crystal to help you be more aware of the beauty of the current season all winter long.

While keeping your crystal comfortably in your hand (or in your pocket), bundle up and go on a nature walk to collect a few special items for your altar for Winter. It’s a really magical experience to do this in silence while holding the intention to discover the Winter energies you most need to connect with. Be open to anything you may find. You never know what you’ll come across! Please only take things you have permission to take, and be mindful of the plants and animals and the environment.

Don’t take more than you need and don’t cause any damage to plants or natural areas. Take the items home with you and use them, along with your special winter crystal, to create a seasonal nature altar in your sacred space, on your mantel, up on a shelf, or on a small table. Take time to refresh this altar throughout the season.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my roundup of the best crystals for the seasons. Now you’re ready to discover your own favorite seasonal crystals!
