2020 Fall Equinox: Being in relationship

September 22nd, 2020 marks the Fall Equinox, a time when we finish harvesting and collecting in preparation for a more restful time of year. We have an opportunity to delve into our relationships now; loving and connecting more deeply with those we share our lives with. Using the energy of the Equinox, set your intentions for the season ahead. Ground into your desire for love, peace, and patience—symbolic of the balancing energy the Equinox is steeped in.

Intention for Love

To feel love is inherent and natural to us; but the experience of love can grow deeper when we are intentional and mindful of how it moves us into belonging. This time of year tends to bring our relationships into focus, helps us understand how we love, connect, and relate. How we make space for others and how we care for ourselves.

Let yourself feel the power of connection by simply doing daily mindfulness practices or working with specific crystal allies on your journey. Some excellent gemstone combinations for love include: rose quartz, rhodonite, and pink opal.

Intention for Peace

The Fall Equinox is a time symbolic of balancing and centering in order to create a sense of peace and wellbeing. This season, set an intention for inner peace that can radiate from within and be shared in relationship with others. What you feel on the inside is reflected on the outside.

Be kind and gentle with yourself on your journey towards peace and balance. Mindfulness meditation or practices bring you deeper into a trusting relationship with the Universal energy that exists all around you. Gemstones to work with for peace are tourmaline, Botswana Agate, and lepidolite.

Intention for Patience

Remember to be patient with yourself. You are enough. Your journey is unique and unfolding just as you are and where you are. The patience you apply to yourself extends out in a network of belonging and compassion for everyone around you. Gemstones especially helpful for an intention of patience needed on a healing journey include; howlite, rudraksha, and sesame jasper.


Remember, you are a part of the ever unfolding journey of being, there is nothing that needs to be done. Slow down this Fall Equinox and notice the pause between breaths, go easy on yourself and others. Focus your intention on what your spirit needs for nourishment at this time. Rest and find peace in the intentions your inner self longs for.
