Primary Uses: Pyrite is an excellent stone of manifestation, allowing one to draw high-frequency energy into the physical body and utilize it to take action in creating abundance for one’s life. Its frequency stimulates the creative flow of ideas and concepts and helps one embrace their innate abilities and potential. Pyrite’s energy empowers the spirit, encouraging one to overcome fears and take action. It increases one’s will to accomplish whatever tasks one sets out to do and can be used to bring one out of one’s shell, becoming more dynamic and confident.
Quick Healing Overview: Pyrite is a crystal of positive energy and is extremely helpful for melancholy and thoughts fixed on misfortune and despair. It relieves anxiety and frustration and, as a mirror to the self, reveals the causes behind these emotions and promotes a search for solutions. Pyrite also allows one to see beyond pretense to what truly lies behind words and actions. It provides the insight that often, things that disturb us in others are also present in us. It is masculine in nature, a stone of action, vitality, and will, and taps into one’s abilities and potential, stimulating the flow of ideas. It brings confidence and the persistence to carry things through to completion. It is a well-known stone for wealth, prosperity, and abundance.
Birthstone & Zodiac Uses: Pyrite is not a traditional birthstone. Pyrite, gold in color, is the natural birthstone of those born in the magical month of midsummer (July 22 – August 21). Pyrite is not associated with any zodiac sign.
Uses in Meditation: Holding a Pyrite in each hand during meditation can bring instant rebalancing and refreshing energy. It is also ideal for ending a meditation to bring the energy fully into the physical realm.
For Chakra Balancing: Pyrite is particularly stimulating to the Third, or Solar Plexus Chakra, the energy distribution center and the chakra of relationships. This chakra is located between the ribcage and navel and controls the immune and digestive systems. When the Solar Plexus is out of balance spiritually, we feel fear – of the disappointment or displeasure of others or of subordinating our life and pleasures to the will of others. Spiritually, when the solar plexus is in balance, we can interpret the world through our thoughts and emotions and not live in fear of violating the dictums of others. Golden Pyrite also identifies with the Sacral Chakra, or Second Chakra, located below the naval and above the pubic bone at the front of the pelvis. It controls the flow of energy and is the body’s center of gravity. It is the center of the body’s Life Force and controls the flow of information from the body to the mind and from the mind to the body.
Crystal Color Energy: Pyrite reflects the energy of Gold, bringing success, enthusiasm, happiness, and power. Light Gold crystals provide us with the simple pleasures of life – cheerfulness and contentment. Dark Gold crystals have a deeper, more pronounced sense of devotion and commitment, providing us with a mature enthusiasm and the ability to share a lifelong commitment of care and love.
Associated Goddesses: Gold crystals honor Persephone, the Greek Goddess of Spring. She represents celebration and the Earth alive with new growth.
Feng Shui Uses: Pyrite utilizes Earth energy, the energy of stability, patience, honesty, balance, and resourcefulness. Use Pyrite to enhance any space that is a resting place where you need to be firmly in control, safe, and protected. Earth energy is traditionally associated with a home or room’s Northeast and Southwest areas. Pyrite also resonates with Fire energy, the energy of enthusiasm, warmth, brightness, illumination, and activity. It is Yang in nature. It is the energy of heat, action, emotion, and passion – of ideas, concepts, and sex. It is traditionally associated with the south area of a home or room and with the fame and reputation area of your dwelling. Use its energy to give your life the boost it needs to enhance your standing in the community and within your family.
Uses in Divination: The Divinatory meaning of Pyrite: A seeming bargain arrives at the time most needed. It could be the answer but check carefully.
Talisman Energy: Pyrite is an Enhancer Mirror crystal. Enhancers have internal crystal lattices of perfect cubic symmetry and internal harmony. As “building block” talismans, their internal structure helps focus our efforts to build on our successes and enhance our lives. Mirror crystals are sulfides, usually volcanic in origin and opaque with a metallic sheen or luster. Their mirror-like surfaces have the power to reflect what is normally hidden and are excellent aids for seeing ourselves as we truly are rather than how we perceive ourselves. They strip away pretensions, reveal truths, and help us avoid being deceived by appearances.
