Some believe in the healing value of crystals. Whether you do or not, here are some attributes behind different ones that may fit your needs, according to your sign.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th)
Due to your independent nature, you disengage with others as quickly as you connect. Although you love sharing ideas and thought-provoking conversations with people, you shy away from intimacy for fear of losing yourself in the process. A rose quartz (the stone of unconditional love) may allow you to be more open to giving and receiving love.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th)
Sometimes you choose to “escape” reality. There’s no harm in retreating every now and then, but don’t forget to keep both feet firmly planted. A black tourmaline may help you stay grounded and aid in clearing negative energies that you’ve absorbed from helping others with their struggles.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th)
You’re fiery, bold, unstoppable and confident. You’re always out for number one, which is inspiring to the people you lead. But it’s important to take a step back and let others take the wheel every now and then. Sodalite––or a similar blue crystal––may be beneficial in developing feelings of sensitivity and compassion for others.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th)
You are among the family of stabilizers within the zodiac wheel. You strive for a sense of security for yourself and for your loved ones, so much so that you can become inflexible at times. Laguna agate may encourage an openness to unexpected changes.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th)
You’re constantly on the go and quick to shift gears at any time (thanks to your inner dual egos). Clear quartz can provide mental clarity and aid in focusing your attention on one thing at a time. Multitasking, while highly useful, can get overwhelming – relax!
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd)
Your varying emotions can be hard to handle – mostly because you like to keep them bottled in. The lapiz lazuli (the throat chakra healing crystal) may help you be more comfortable expressing your feelings and encourage clear communication with loved ones.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd)
You love being lavished by others and making sure all eyes are on you – after all, you’re the king/queen of the jungle! But don’t forget to let others shine in the spotlight as well. The all-encompassing amethyst encourages humility and sincerity without relinquishing your power. It doesn’t have to be lonely at the top.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd)
Your greatest strength is also your fatal flaw – perfectionism. It’s great to be detail-oriented but don’t beat yourself up about every last piece of the puzzle. Reclaim your self-worth with a red labradorite, which may help to shut out self-doubt.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd)
Balance is your true M.O. – you’re a master at seeing all sides to every situation, no matter how difficult, which can cause you to be quite indecisive. Yellow jasper can reinforce decisiveness in times of need.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st)
You are a secretive and mysterious soul. Being vulnerable with others is a bit of a challenge for you – you’re afraid people will take advantage of your trust. A black obsidian may be beneficial for facing as well as letting go of fears.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st)
As the free spirit of the zodiac, you hate being bound by rules and routine. You enjoy juggling a million different activities, friends and new adventures simply because you can. But be careful not to start what you can’t finish. The golden aura quartz can motivate you to deliver and follow through on the goals you set for yourself.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th)
For you, sticking to plan is the surefire way to get to the finish line. But it doesn’t hurt to take the road less traveled every once in awhile. Don’t be afraid to let loose and have fun along the way to accomplishing your goals. You deserve it. A lace agate may inspire you to take adventures and risks.
