Pyrite | The Magic of Crystals


Energy Center: Solar

The Full Scoop: Pyrite exudes a masculine energy that is calming and stabilizing at the same time. This does not mean that it is a stone only for men. We all have within us both masculine and feminine energies. Masculine energy is the one of taking action, decisiveness, protection and logical thinking. The feminine counterpart to this is creativity, imagination, nurturing and contemplation.

Interestingly, this is a stone that activates and supports the Solar Plexus Energy Center which is the receptor/transmitter of energies related to the full range of our emotions. Because of the emphasis on the masculine energy, Pyrite helps us examine the day-to-day activities in our lives to determine the impacts they are having on our “quality of life.”

Pyrite helps us look at these situations with a sort of detachment that initially may seem emotionless when, in truth, it allows us to step into the Observer role, which is important for getting to the core of many issues. It does not numb us to the situation. It just supports observing it from enough distance to make choices about how we want to proceed or participate in the future.

Pyrite is also a stone that many use for added vitality. Many situations or events affect our physical energies such as the food we eat, the alignment of planets/moon, our work environment, to name a few. When you need just an extra boost of energy this is a good stone to work with. Even though Pyrite adds vitality, it still has that calming effect. This translates into a stronger sense of confidence and clear thinking and the ability to evaluate without loosing perspective and decisiveness.
