Citrine

Citrine is known as a “success” stone because it is said in folklore to promote success and abundance, especially in business and commerce.

Its lore also says that it enhances mental clarity, confidence, happiness and will power. Citrine is purported to bring good fortune, sometimes in much unexpected ways.

Citrine is also a good general protection stone according to crystal healing lore. It is said to alleviate depression and self-doubt and diminish irrational mood swings because of mental clarity it has.

In traditional folklore and crystal healing lore it is said to aid the digestion and eliminate nightmares that disturb one’s sleep.

It is associated with the solar plexus chakra.

Citrine is generally a Yellow colour, but my be found darker towards Orange.  If reading the Metaphysical Properties of Colour along with the above information, choose the colour of your piece of stone.

Yellow

The metaphysical properties of this colour

Yellow colour properties

In this series of posts on the properties of colour I have included an overview of the metaphysical properties and information on some colours and the chakras that they relate to.  I have also included some lessons and affirmations.

Later, in a more in-depth series, I will build on the properties of these colours and how you can use them to your benefit.

Having studied the Aura Soma system of Colour Therapy to the Advanced Level I find the natural benefits of vibrations from colour intriguing and I’m always trying to find out more information on this subject.

Clothing is another easy way to benefit from the energy of colour.  Yellow isn’t your favourite colour?  Use socks or underwear in this colour as a great way of reminding yourself that you are connected and have confidence – and no-one will know.

Star Gazer Collection
A stack of gemstone bracelets
 
 The Solar Bracelets in this picture represent the planets in our solar system and the wearer is the sun. The planets orbit around their wrist. How special is that?
 
The matte black Onyx of deep space are joined by Citrine (Mercury), Rose Quartz (Venus), Azurite (Earth), Moonstone (Moon), Carnelian (Mars), Amethyst (Jupiter), Pyrite (Saturn), Clear Quartz (Uranus), Fluorite (Neptune) and Cloudy Quartz (Pluto).
 
In this post I will discuss the stones and planets relationships.
 
The photo depicts some of the colour differences within the stones, especially Azurite (which can be more green or blue), Fluorite which has different intensities of greens and purple shades and Cloudy Quartz with the different shades of grey.
 
If you have a preference for one of these options, or would like to use a different stone associated with the planets, please contact me to arrange a custom piece.

Crystal Association

Planet, Crystal and Star Sign Connection

The Sun is the most important aspect of your birth chart as it represents your core being.  When wearing this bracelet, you represent the sun!

The closest planet to the Sun is Mercury, the ruling planet for Gemini and Virgo.  Citrine is a stone often associated with Mercury and provides the properties of intelligence, logic and communication

Venus is considered the planet of love and sits well with the unconditional love associated with Rose Quartz.  The signs of Taurus and Libra are ruled by Venus.

 

Solar system Star Signs and Planets

Earth and it's Moon

Earth is the next planet in the solar system, and I have chosen Azurite to represent our beautiful blue planet. Azurite can clear confusion and enable you to see and perceive the world clearly.

Moonstone is associated with the Moon which represents the reactive or habit-forming self and Moonstone can help enhance healthy habits.  The Moon is technically not a planet, but it has a huge influence over us.  Just consider the effect it has on the tides.

 

Crystal Association

Planet, Crystal and Star Sign Connection

Solar system bracelet is part of the Star Gazer Collection

The red planet, Mars is associated Carnelian which can calm excessive energy and enable one to become more assertive.  Mars is the ruler of the sign Aries and traditionally Scorpio was also considered to fall under its rule.

Jupiter is considered the planet of expansion and the ruler of Sagittarius. Pieces was traditionally considered under its rule.  Amethyst is one of the stones associated with Jupiter and can aid right brain activity and help see opportunities and growth

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn while Aquarius traditionally sat under its rule.  Saturn represents structure and lessons in life and Pyrite grounds us and provides clear, practical thinking and enhances practicality.

Uranus rules the sign of Aquarius and is considered the planet of renovation and restructuring.  Clear Quartz is often linked to this planet.  It stimulates brain functions and provides clarity.  Considered a Master Healer it can be used to intensify surrounding energies.

The ruler of the sign Pisces, Neptune represents imagination, mysticism and creativity.  A stone connected to this planet, Fluorite helps us to grasp higher, more abstract concepts and facilitates inter dimensional communications.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planer of transformation. Cloudy Quartz can purify negative energy, revive your vitality and give you the strength to regenerate.
