What Is The Birthstone For September? Chrysolite Meaning, Spiritual Power & Personality Traits

Known as the “golden stone” for its shining yellow-green hue, chrysolite has been adored since ancient times, with Egyptian legend claiming that Cleopatra never went anywhere without it. Said to reduce fear and anxiety, and bring about good luck and fortune, this gemstone has been highly sought-after for thousands of years. Very popular with our own psychic readers, chrysolite can assist in clairvoyant readings, enhancing the clarity and authenticity of them. This is in part due to the energy it releases, which purifies the heart for complete honesty and truth. There’s no stopping this powerful stone.

Chrysolite stone meanings include:

A crystal for careful consideration and a more balanced approach to life’s happenstances. Those who are prone to acting hastily and engaging in activities they may regret are encouraged to wear this stone for better judgement. Helping the wearer think clearly and make the right decision, it can hold those back from rash (and even potentially dangerous) acts.

If something has been playing on your mind, and it’s impacting your sleep patterns and causing nightmares or insomnia, chrysolite can help relieve this tension, and get your mind focused on the here and now. Melting away the constant worry, and helping you to see what you must do to move forward in life, this a stone of action, and through it, your path will become clear.

If you’re seeking to set intentions while meditating, this September birthstone can be held in the process to help you manifest your desires and make them a reality. Especially strong for attracting love, but also great for manifesting wealth and good luck, this September birthstone can further calm any feelings of anger, replacing it with positive thought, and helping you take on new challenges with a calm and focused mind.


People born under the chrysolite birthstone are said to have the following personality traits:

Unending loyalty and dedication to loved ones, always standing up for them should they feel hurt or wronged by another, and sticking by their side through thick and thin. Your unwavering loyalty and belief in your loved ones is always appreciated, and is a quality they like most about you.

Wisdom and intelligence, and using this for the betterment of society. You think things through and ensure you don’t make rash decisions without considering the consequences, and try your best to achieve the best outcome. You don’t shy away from using your knowledge to build up and support others too, and if there’s ever any insight you can provide, then you will. When it comes to work, you know that even if you’re not leading a project, you can be a vital part of the team, and your contribution is always valued. You’re revered for your talent too, and what you add to every meeting.

Desire for peace and harmony and ensuring that should ever disputes occur, they are resolved in a fair and efficient manner. You don’t see things in black and white, instead preferring to get to the heart of the matter, and ensuring everyone is given a chance to have their voice heard. You think there’s nothing worse than hidden truths, and unspoken words, and encourage communication between opposing sides.

Romantic, and can be a hopeless one at that. You believe in that fairytale ending and will do your utmost to make that a reality. If things get tough, then you know that some magic is needed, and that you’re willing to work at it to ensure both you and your partner are happy, and feel heard. Love is a battlefield, but you always want both sides to win.


Jacinth - A September Birthstone That Helps You To Move Forward In Life

Jacinth is a red-orange stone whose name is of Arabic origin. Also known as hyacinth when derived from the Greek language, it is so named because it resembles the hyacinth flowers which the god Apollo caused to spring from the blood of the man he accidentally killed at a discus throwing contest. After a time, the flowers transformed into gemstones, which were called jacinth. The spiritual properties of this gemstone align with the legend and image of Apollo. As the god of beauty and art, he provided the stone with the power of creativity, and is therefore much admired in creative industries. Jacinth enables inspiration, motivation and the talent to achieve great things - especially for writers, musicians and artists who may be feeling drained, overwhelmed or in need of some extra help.


This birthstone for September can also:

Provide insight like no other. Clearing the mind so that the truth reveals itself, jacinth can assist in situations where you can’t quite put your finger on what, but you know that deep down something isn’t quite right. With this September crystal by your side, no one can deceive you, and you can distinguish the lies from the truth. That way, it encourages you to have greater faith in yourself and your instincts, and not hesitate to make decisions that could make your life much happier, much earlier.

Some psychic readers believe that you should use this birthstone of September when dealing with tough life situations. Jacinth can help you to recover from serious losses and breakups with your past loved ones, and give you the strength to survive any grief and disappointment. Once you heal from these painful wounds and feel ready to take on the world, love stones such as amethyst and rose quartz are recommended.

Perhaps most importantly, jacinth helps to strengthen self-esteem and build up confidence in areas where it may be lacking. Even when highly sought-after opportunities come our way, we can be laden with self doubt over whether we can meet certain expectations, or even whether we’re good enough. This gemstone reminds us that it’s us that got us to where we are now, and if others can see the beauty and capabilities that we instill, then so should we. Trust that the universe is bringing you these opportunities because you deserve them, and that with some spiritual guidance, you can go on to achieve great things.

Other September Birthstones - Sapphire & Jasper

Beyond chrysolite and jacinth, sapphire and jasper are two other birthstones for September that can help with setting intentions, and bringing forth positive energy to help on the path to happiness.

Sapphire - These power crystals are available in blue, yellow and green hues, as well as black, purple and orange varieties, each with their own spiritual power and unrivalled success. Blue sapphires are most popular for September, and can:

Help to calm your mind, bringing focus and restoring balance in your body. It will free you from inner prisons and mental struggles that may be closing you off emotionally, and infuse you with light and happier moods that allow openness and motivation to flourish.

Blue sapphire encourages a better understanding of yourself and what it is you truly want out of life, helping you become more secure in your convictions and actions, and taking on any challenge that comes your way. This crystal will help you express your truth to others, assisting in communication and helping them to understand your point of view, ultimately enabling your talent and capabilities to show.

Blue sapphire is also a crystal of love, commitment and compassion, and is a good spiritual tool to have around if you’re planning on taking your love life to the next level - for example, if you’re thinking about moving in with your partner, getting engaged, married, or having a baby. This birthstone will strengthen your relationship and deepen your love for one other. It will also rid your love life of your fears and anxieties, and it will help you let go of your inhibitions and insecurities. This is key for a healthy relationship to grow.


Jasper embodies a calming frequency that is steady and continuous. Many of our psychic readers here at Psychic Sofa state the presence of jasper is not unlike being accompanied by a good friend, who is always there to support you whenever you feel uneasy or are in need of some extra affection.

Jasper’s spiritual energy is slow, relaxed and grounding, bringing comfort and a sense that all will be alright in the world, should we give it time and practice gratitude. Many people find gratitude difficult when feeling overwhelmed or poorly treated. Jasper can shine a light on all the things that we should be thankful for, to help us realise that things are never as bad as they may seem.

If you’re prone to daydreaming and getting lost in fantasies, jasper stones can help bring you back to the present moment, and keep your head out of the clouds and your feet firmly on the ground. Though dreaming can be a wonderful thing, jasper ensures that you don’t get lost in them, but rather, realise how you can make your dreams a reality instead.

Not only great for attracting wealth, but this September birthstone can promote creative thinking and innovative ideas. And because this gem carries the vibration needed for focus, it can be of great benefit in enabling you to turn your creative ideas into concrete reality - showcasing how talented and capable you truly are.


Crystal Cleansing & Spiritual Rituals

To truly benefit from your September birthstone, we recommend cleansing them, as well as spiritual rituals such as charging, grounding and divination.

Crystal cleansing is recommended for the following reasons:

When you first purchase your birthstones and bring them home, it’s a good idea to cleanse them of any energies they might have picked up from others, ensuring the gems are attuned to yours.

You may also want to cleanse them if you’re going through a tough time, and are in need of positive energy.

If you use birthstones regularly, a thorough cleanse before each use can ensure that the crystals are refreshed for each time.

Crystal cleansing rituals include:

Lighting a sage smudge stick and letting the smoke purify the stones. Setting intentions while this is happening is always recommended.

Visualising the crystals immersed in intense light can cleanse and energise them, keeping it flowing in the right and most helpful direction.

Placing crystals in moonlight.  Full moon's are the best times to cleanse crystals and have the added benefit of charging them too.

To ground your chrysolite, jacinth, sapphire or jasper, you just need to return them to the earth and cover them with soil. Close your eyes and imagine the earth is protecting the stones with a vivid healing power, clearing away any negativity and enabling positivity to shine through. 12 hours in the soil should do the trick, so that you become grounded when using them too.

Divination is a great way to connect with the physical and spiritual worlds, and find yourself and your place within them. Along with grounding and charging, rituals that integrate nature can help you to further connect with the world around you, and to feel more aligned with its energies. Introducing certain sounds, incense, and sage into your rituals can help you to communicate with the Divine, and ask him to hear and listen to your specific intentions. Should you be open to his wisdom, then spiritual guidance will come, and your life will be full of love, happiness and encouragement.
