If you’re looking to work your way up the career ladder or simply need a helping hand with a difficult client at work, these crystals might just give you the oomph you need to move forward. With an extensive background in crystals and healing, Cassandra Eason walks us through the five stones that’ll make your 9-5 that little bit easier…
A crystal of the Sun, dark green bloodstone with red or orange spots, is a stone of courage to stand against individuals and organizations who seek to intimidate you. It is protective in an over-competitive workplace or if you are pressured to achieve unrealistic targets. As a crystal of the day, bloodstone says you should stand your ground and persist politely until you get what you want, no matter how great the odds against you.
This stone of Venus breathes life into a relationship after a major setback, betrayal, or outside interference. Rub one over the envelope of any applications or letters you send out relating to employment, money, or new business; hold one over a computer mouse before applying online for a new job or business finance. As a crystal of the day, chrysoprase says that a new opportunity when least expected, and from the least anticipated source, could move you out of an impasse and open new future avenues.
Fluorite, a stone of Neptune, is a natural calming, de-stressing, and focusing crystal so that dreams and ideas can be expressed in a practical way in the workplace. It is good for spiritual businesses, such as therapists and healers who make a living from their gifts. It raises the ethical and spiritual level in a very commercial, dog-eat-dog, or materially orientated workplace. As a crystal of the day, fluorite says that what you want may not seem the most financially viable option, but you should not compromise your principles.
Blue and gold-flecked lapis is the stone of wise Jupiter. Lapis inspires the trust of others and encourages steady career advancement. It is a stone associated with the accumulation of wealth and property and attaining stardom through the performing or creative arts. Use this stone when seeking justice through official channels. As a crystal of the day, lapis lazuli says you may be called upon to take the lead or have a chance to further your ambitions.
Stone of Mars, black volcanic obsidian helps everything run smoothly, from organizing the company office party to executing a multimillion-dollar project. Use for a fierce defence against aggressive people or in a fight for compensation from a big corporation or government body. As a crystal of the day, obsidian says you have more power than you realize that you can use if you are not afraid to challenge an outmoded status quo.
