Crystals for Scorpio Season
The Scorpio season is upon us, meaning our lives are about to get more complicated, mysterious, in-depth, spiritual, passionate, and even dark. Scorpio energy is rich, intense, and a little bit edgy.
Many people will feel well-prepared and personally equipped to deal with the feelings that may come up during the Scorpio season - such as jealousy, secrecy, and envy - but many more of us may need the assistance of external energies to keep our heads above the engulfing Scorpio waters.
Furthermore, there are spiritual energies associated with the sign of Scorpio that plenty of people will wish to amplify and draw towards them; Scorpio season is an excellent time to dive into the mysteries and spiritual nature of life.
Scorpio Season & the Crystal Connection
Whether you’re looking to keep yourself relaxed and upbeat or trying to draw more of that enigmatic Scorpio energy near you, there’s a crystal out there to assist you.
Crystals work during every astrological season, but there are certain stones whose energy are practically buzzing with excitement during Scorpio’s reign. Keep reading to discover the perfect crystals to work with this Scorpio season.
Obsidian is a crystal that shares the same intensity as Scorpio’s vibes, but with a twist: this stone is known for its ability to cleanse the psychic sphere. We all need a psychic cleanse from time to time, and this is the perfect stone to use for that purpose. Everyone we encounter leaves a bit of their energy lingering near our aura, and sometimes our own negativity can stick around much longer than we’d like. If you feel your psychic energy needs purification, meditate with a piece of obsidian.
Obsidian can help bring attention to the darker aspects of your personality. It reminds us that we are all comprised of positive and negative, dark and light. While both sides are necessary, it can help tremendously to understand all parts of yourself.

Amethyst is a wonderful stone to work with during the Scorpio season due to its ability to soothe emotional wounds, help with addictive behaviors, and increase spiritual energy.
You might find yourself unearthing past hurts and upsets this time of the year due to Scorpio’s push to dig deeper. Amethyst can help you deal with the resulting emotions. If you need help regulating your feelings as you navigate older issues that need healing, amethyst can help immensely.
These feelings are also likely to urge us towards substances in an attempt to numb them. While it may seem like a glass of wine can’t hurt, it is important to face our emotional wounds head-on, and especially to avoid covering pain with alcohol or other substances. Amethyst has long been known for its ability to lessen addictive behaviors.
Finally, amethyst connects us to our spiritual center - a welcomed invitation as we encounter the mystical nature of Scorpio.

Scorpio energy contains mystery and secrecy. You may never truly feel like you know the Scorpios in your life, and that’s because there is a sense of keeping certain things hidden within the nature of this sign. However, while no one is required to share every single part of themselves with anyone, it is important that we learn to open up and let others in. When Scorpio energy is in full swing, you may feel the tendency to bottle your feelings up and try to let them sink.
Yet, try as you might, the bottled emotions will always rise to the surface eventually. It’s important to learn to let some of that out early on with people you trust, and aquamarine is just the stone to help you hit the release button.
Aquamarine encourages openness and improves communication skills, making it a little bit easier to let people see your vulnerable side. This stone reduces fear and helps you feel more balanced when opening up to others. It is especially well-known for improving the communication skills of those with a Scorpio Sun.
Malachite is a metaphysical stone with a connection to the spiritual realm. This crystal is especially useful when meditating or doing other introspective work. Malachite encourages grounding and balance and helps reduce the intensity of certain emotions.
Malachite is also a sensual stone, matching the sensual energy of Scorpio. It increases blood flow in the sex organs and is associated with the goddess of love, Aphrodite.
This crystal is associated with Pluto, the transformative ruling planet of the sign Scorpio. Pluto encourages us to explore deeper, more metaphysical concepts and observe the hidden world around us. It promotes transformation within and helps us develop our spiritual, inquisitive nature.
Malachite is also an excellent stone for cleansing the space of negative energy.
Labradorite perfectly embodies the mystical, magical nature of Scorpio. Quite literally known as the Stone of Magic, labradorite increases the energy of wonder and the supernatural. Scorpio is known for its curious nature and willingness to explore hidden realms, and labradorite is the perfect stepping-stone into these unknown realms.
Perfect for meditation and Tarot work, this crystal radiates with alchemical energy and is excellent for this Scorpio season.
Working with Crystals
The truth is, you don’t have to do much actual work when working with crystals. Their presence and energy work well on their own. However, there are many ways to incorporate crystals into your life.
Carry a crystal in your left pocket to absorb its energy or try infusing your drinking water with the power of your chosen crystal by soaking it for 30 minutes. (Remove before drinking.) You can meditate surrounded by your crystals or hold one in each hand. You can even simply place your favorite crystals around your home or office.
No matter how you choose to work with your stones, make sure you feel a sense of connection to yourself and your spirit.
