May Colour – Red Crystals
In the southern hemisphere May is the month of Red Crystals.
Red is the colour of passion, energy and life. It motivates. it is emotionally intense. It affects humans by raising their blood pressure and speeding up their metabolism. It excites us. Raises our enthusiasm, and gives us energy.
Red crystals are used when the situation needs passion. When active involved, energetic action is required. Red empowers, uplifts and engulfs. It cures apathy. It gets things done. If you are suffering from lack of power, listlessness, or a low emotional state, you need more red.
In lighter shades of red, like pink, the strong passion and power are toned down to subtler, feminine aspects. This is the color ray of determination, commitment, and caring.
Simply, pink is love. Also, pink is a soothing color, useful to calm feelings of anger or resentment. Pink is a comfort color that can aid efforts to meditate.
In darker shades, red is tinted with brown or black. Here the power of the color is not muted but mixed with darker, more earthy, powerful overtones of brown.
Dark red stones are crystals of very hard, durable energy and quiet passion. Strong, deep feelings call for a strong, deep-red crystal. Dark red is a masculine color.
The dark red stones are particularly useful for increasing devotion, and seeing the seriousness of life.
