Gemstone Focus: Gems for Virgo Season


The Virgo season invites us to renew our commitment to our goals, refresh our routines, and find the magick in the details of the day to day. Work with this season's energy to explore how you show up intentionally in your everyday life and how you can incorporate gemstone jewelry into to your practices.

 

Virgo season begins on August 22nd and ends on September 22nd. It is the sixth sign of the zodiac, and it is associated with the sixth house of wellness and routines. This season is the perfect time to help you re-imagine your daily routine in a way that'll leave you feeling more centered.


While our Virgo friends tend to have this deep understanding of staying on track, starting and maintaining new routines and boundaries, or prioritizing self-care, the rest of us could probably use a little help. Even the most steadfast Virgo can benefit from an extra boost- setting intention with Gemstone jewelry is one of my favorite ways to do just that.


I'm a firm believer in following your gut- whether that be choosing your gems to work with or how you set intention or recharge them. If you're starting a new routine with this during Virgo season I suggest starting simple and trusting your intuition on your path. Choose your gem based on the properties of that stone or the gem that you are strongly drawn to. I always seem to find myself called to just what I need at that time, but if you're still honing in on your intuition, read a little about each stone below and pay attention to what colors, meanings, or words stand out to you and go from there.
