Due to citrine’s natural autumn hues, it makes sense that it would be the birth stone of November. There are many believed citrine meanings. Known as The Merchant’s Stone or The Success Stone, the citrine properties of wealth and abundance are some of its most well known. If seeking abundance in financial or business ventures, this is the stone to aid in the manifestation. Because this stone works in synergy with other crystals, it can be beneficial to combine citrine with helidore, golden labradorite or imperial topaz if an increase in personal will is desired. All success in business or life is the result of hard work, but sometimes that hard work is difficult to muster up the fortitude for. Manifesting the personal will to persevere and see something through to success is helpful in bolstering the grit and effort that is being expended.
Other citrine properties are linked to the creative process. Whether natural or heated, citrine is said to activate the imagination via the second, third and sixth chakras. It enhances mental clarity and allows for the flow of ideas and visualizing. Especially when used in meditation, this citrine property is very effective in strengthening mental output and establishing goals. Stones to use in addition to citrine to amplify creativity are zincite, orange calcite and carnelian.
Citrine is associated with the root, sacral and solar plexus chakras. By connecting with the sacral chakra, the citrine healing properties are most effective in stimulating an increase in sexual and creative fertility. The conception of both ideas and life can be plentiful under citrine’s power to motivate. It also links to the root chakra to bring the physical energy up to the emotional, and raise all energy to a higher plane. As this chakra is an area where people often suffer energy blocks, citrine can be crucial to clear that block. The solar plexus is the central energy distributer, so citrine’s connection to this chakra will elevate energy levels and general circulation.
