Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Everyone has a zodiac sign, and everyone –one way or another– finds a way to relate to their sign, even if you don’t know it! Each sign has their own traits and goals, and this energy can be amplified by specific crystals. Many people find that the crystals they are most attracted to happen to correspond with their sun sign! Here’s a list I have compiled of some of the best crystals for each zodiac sign.
Aries: March 21-April 20
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, which makes them natural born leaders with a strong personality. Symbolized by the ram, this cardinal fire sign loves to take initiative and almost always has a plan of action. Their ruling planet, Mars, makes them a bit hot-headed and competitive at times; however, this is not always a bad trait to have. Ariens do not like to waste time so they tend to take on new projects easily, and their competitiveness and ambition generally works in their favor. Some crystals that are most connected Ariens are:
Hematite is a grounding stone that works with the root chakra to balance emotions. Since an Aries regularly acts on their emotions, this crystal can help with not acting so impulsively. This stone also helps to dissolve negativity and boost concentration, which is perfect for an Aries starting a new project as it will draw in success and abundance.
Mexican Jasper is one of the best stones for creativity, but also has grounding energy as it works with the root chakra. This stone is perfect for an Aries starting a business or new managerial position. It increases confidence and boosts emotions which paves the way for new ideas to form. It suspends any procrastination or insecurities, which is perfect for any Aries looking to make progress in their careers.
Green Aventurine is the stone of abundance, as it helps to manifest success, prosperity, and (most importantly), money. Much like Mexican Jasper, this stone is perfect for an Aries in a leadership position because it promotes decisiveness and confidence. It works with the heart chakra, so this crystal can also help heal any old wounds holding an Aries back.
Taurus: April 21-May-20
Taurus, the second sign of the zodiac, is known for the down-to-earth and calming energy that they bring. This fixed earth sign thrives off stability and does not take well to sudden changes. Symbolized by the bull, Taurians can be very headstrong and reasonable, but also very stubborn; but this makes for a very loyal person who will stick with someone through almost anything. Their ruling planet, Venus, makes any Taurus a very generous individual who loves to indulge in the finer things in life. Some crystals that are best connected to a Taurus are:
Bumblebee Jasper is a stone that works with the solar plexus and sacral chakras to enhance confidence and creativity. This stone boosts emotions, as it helps with maintaining a positive attitude during a particularly stressful day. This stone also promotes acting out of reason over emotion, which helps a Taurus keep the stability they need throughout the day.
Septarian is a very special stone composed of Aragonite, Calcite, and Limestone. This stone works with the root chakra and harmonizes the mind, body, and spirit. Septairian promotes positive change, which would push a Taurus to make necessary changes in their lifestyle, career, or spirituality.
Rhodonite is a crystal that works with the root and heart chakras. This stone has a calm, nurturing energy while it encourages forgiveness, acceptance, and selflessness, which is why Taurians tend to feel connected to this stone. While this stone helps with seeing the greater good, it also increases confidence. This confidence can help a Taurus develop the energy to learn new skills and try new things as well as find a purpose suitable for them.
Gemini: May 21-June 21
Gemini, the third sign on our list, are known as the most curious of the zodiac. The twins symbolize this mutable air sign, which explains why Geminis are naturally social and love to spark conversation. Ruled by the planet of communication and intellect, Mercury, a Gemini is always ready to learn about new things and are highly intelligent. Geminis commonly thrive off of excitement and versatility, which can make them inconsistent. Since their mind tends to jump from one thing to the next, they can have trouble finishing what they start. Some stones that are connected to a Gemini are:
Aquamarine connects to the throat chakra, and is nicknamed the ‘stone of communication’. This stone helps a Gemini speak calmly and clearly, getting their ideas across in an organized way. This stone also helps with connecting with one’s truest self, which can aid a Gemini struggling with confidence or inner peace.
Agate is an extremely versatile crystal that comes in all shapes and sizes. This stone works closely with the root and sacral chakras, which provides grounding and soothing energies that a Gemini regularly needs. This stone is great for focus and memory, which is a Gemini’s strength. This will help balance a Gemini’s energetic state, but also provide the energy for them to keep learning new things.
Kyanite is a self-cleansing crystal that works with the third eye and crown chakras. This stone removes blockages in a Gemini’s energy field and brings balance to all chakras. It is a grounding stone that also enhances spiritual growth, so this energy can help a Gemini stay focused while completing a task or project.
Cancer: June 22-July 22
Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac, and is symbolized by the crab. This cardinal water sign is highly intuitive and emotional, as its ruler is none other than the Moon. A Cancer's imagination tends to run wild, which makes them extremely creative individuals. Since these signs tend to run on emotions rather than reason, they have a tendency to be moody and pessimistic. However, these signs also carry the most maternal traits, making them empathetic and very loyal. Some crystals connected to a Cancer are:
Shungite is a stone that works with all the chakras. It has many health benefits, such as detoxifying the body and cleansing the aura. It can also be used to rid t
he mind of negative energy, which is especially useful for a Cancer finding themselves a little down in the dumps. Cancers tend to have emotions beyond their control, and this stone works best for regulating difficult emotions.
Opalite is a man-made stone that works with the third-eye chakra. This stone’s soft, nurturing energy mimics that of a Cancer’s. This stone symbolizes clarity, purity, and new beginnings. Cancers can use this stone to help aid them in life transitions and raising self-esteem. This stone is great for communication, and can also have the ability to increase intuition and psychic abilities.
Orange Calcite works with the sacral and solar plexus chakra, making this a great stone for creativity and sexuality. It heals any wounds in these areas, and can also promote self confidence and expression. Cancers are naturally creative people, and this stone will help with any creative blocks they may be having. This stone also overcomes feelings of sadness and hopelessness, which could help a Cancer who may be feeling overwhelmed.
Leo: July 23-August 23
Leo, the fifth sign of the zodiac, is a fixed fire sign represented by the lion. Leos are ruled by the Sun, which makes them extremely passionate and cheerful beings. They are humorous, creative, and confident individuals, but have a tendency to fall victim to arrogance and pride. While they can be self-centered at times, Leos are also known for their generosity toward others. Leos love to enjoy life and typically have many friends to surround themselves with. Some crystals best connected to Leos are:
Pyrite is a stone of good luck that connects to the solar plexus chakra. Much like a Leo, this stone carries energies of strength and willpower. It can be used to eliminate negative habits and manifest new desires. This can also be used as a grounding stone, as it eliminates any negative energy in one’s aura.
This stone works with the sacral chakra and solar plexus. Sunstone has an extremely positive energy, and is used to harmonize the mind, body, and spirit. This stone can bring passion, enthusiasm, and positivity into a Leo’s life when they are not feeling like themselves. Sunstone can also improve self-confidence for a Leo.
Carnelian is a motivator stone that connects to the sacral chakra. This high vibrational crystal stimulates creativity and can help illuminate hidden talents. This stone can aid a Leo in becoming successful in their career or other areas of life. This stone will give Leos the self-confidence they need to pursue the creative project they may have been holding back on.
Virgo: August 24-September 22
Virgo, the sixth sign of the zodiac, is another sign ruled by the planet of intellect, Mercury. This mutable earth sign is symbolized by the maiden, or virgin, and are very kind and loyal individuals. They are very work-oriented, almost to a fault, but their hardworking energy gets the job done. Unlike Gemini, who they share their ruler with, once a Virgo starts a project, they won’t stop until it’s finished. Virgos thrive off of organization and practicality. Some crystals that are connected to a Virgo are:
Flower Agate is a gorgeous stone that works with the root and heart chakras. This stone enables a Virgo to grow to their fullest potential in any area of life. Virgos have a tendency to struggle with self-confidence, but this stone brings them the confidence they need in order to be successful. It inspires one to manifest their dreams and helps one to gain the motivation to make their desires come to life.
Amazonite is a stone of truth and courage that works with the heart chakra. This stone helps an individual communicate their thoughts without fear of judgment, which is a worry that Virgos often carry with them. Amazonite can help a Virgo establish a sense of worth and stop ignoring their own needs.
Moss agate is a stone that works closely with the root and heart chakras. This is a stone of stability, which is an energy that Virgos and other earth signs thrive in. This stone is effective for calming mood swings, and its grounding energy can help a Virgo regain the balance they need. Moss agate is also believed to balance the right and left brain, making space for both logic and creativity.
Libra: September 23-October 22
Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac, and this cardinal air sign is ruled by the planet Venus. Libras are symbolized by the scales, which means they thrive off of balance and harmony. They are cooperative and can get along with anyone, but they also tend to hold a grudge. They are fair-minded and always striving for equality, but their need for balance can develop into indecisiveness very quickly. Libras are social butterflies, and are frequently the peacemakers of the zodiac. Some crystals connected to Libras are:
Morganite is a very powerful love stone connected to the heart chakra. This offers love and purity in a Libra’s relationships. Though it is a stone frequently used for love, it can also be used to strengthen friendships or other deep bonds. This stone can help clear a Libra’s heart of any negativity. Its powerful vibration is also thought to fill the body with calming and relaxed energy.
Moonstone works with the sacral and solar plexus chakras and is nicknamed the “Goddess Stone”. This stone will calm any heightened emotions a Libra experiences, restoring balance and harmony in the aura. It is also a stone of new beginnings, and can help a Libra let go of any person or situation no longer serving them.
Lepidolite works with the heart, third-eye, and crown chakras. Like moonstone, this crystal will help a Libra release any old patterns or habits not serving them. This stone helps transition a Libra into a period of time where they can grow into their best selves. Lepidolite is also known to clear stress from emotions and promote communication with one’s highest self.
Scorpio: October 23-November 21
Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, and this fixed water sign has been ruled by two planets: its traditional ruler Pluto, and its modern ruler Mars. This combination makes for a very passionate individual who loves to be in the right. Represented by the scorpion, Scorpios make amazing, loyal friends, but you must get through their barriers first since they are often very distrusting. They have a tendency to be manipulative and violent, but only if they know they are being misled or mistreated. Some crystals connected to a Scorpio are:
Labradorite is a beautiful transformation stone that works with all chakras. This stone is best for working through life transformations, such as new jobs, relationships, or other big changes. This stone can help a Scorpio in their spiritual journey, as it is a good stone for ritual work. Labradorite also enhances psychic abilities and spiritual knowledge.
Hackmanite works with the highest chakra in the body: the crown chakra. This high vibration crystal can help with problem solving and letting go of fear. These crystals are great to use in meditation, and can help a Scorpio cut ties with any bad experiences holding them back. Scorpios tend to be intuitive individuals, and Hackmanite is a stone that can enhance any intuitive gifts a Scorpio may possess.
Fire quartz is a stone that connects to the root chakra. This is a healing stone that can aid a Scorpio in getting rid of any negative energy and transforming it into positive vibrations. This is a stone that harmonizes the mind, body, and spirit, as well as improving focus. Fire quartz can also help a Scorpio develop self confidence and acceptance of their shadow selves.
Sagittarius: November 22-December 21
Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac who is represented by the archer, and the last fire sign on our list. Being a mutable sign, a Sagittarius will likely welcome the idea of change and new beginnings. Ruled by the largest planet Jupiter, these signs tend to be very energetic and have great senses of humor. Sagittarians also tend to be a bit impatient and will say anything on their minds, no matter the consequence; however, these creative minds love their freedom and to pave their own way in life. Some crystals connected to Sagittarians are:
Another stone of transformation, Charoite connects with the solar plexus, heart, third-eye, and crown chakras. This is a great stone for a Sagittarius to overcome any fears holding them back. Since Sagittarians live in a frequent state of change, this stone can help cope with some abrupt or unwanted changes. Charoite is also a stone that can cleanse the aura and heal emotions.
Smokey quartz is a grounding stone that works with the three lower chakras: root, sacral, and solar plexus. Its deep connection to the Earth can clear away negative emotions, especially feelings of hopelessness or depression. A Sagittarius can use this stone for its grounding properties to help with impatience.
Sodalite is a very versatile stone that connects with the third eye and crown chakra. It can help clear a Sagittarian’s negative emotions and increase confidence within themselves. Additionally, it can be used to inspire creativity within an individual as well as encouragement to carry out any projects. Sodalite can also be used to increase self-awareness and the discipline a Sagittarius may need to stay on track in life.
Capricorn: December 22-January 20
The tenth sign of the zodiac is Capricorn, represented by the sea goat. These cardinal earth signs are very responsible and career-oriented, but they have a tendency to set standards that are unrealistic and too high for themselves. Their ruler, Saturn, makes these signs very realistic and dependable, but they also can get caught up in the negatives of a situation which makes them always expect the worst. Capricorns tend to have a lot of independence and self-control, which makes for a successful individual who learns from experience. Some stones connected with Capricorns are:
Pink Aragonite works closely with the root chakra. Its grounding energy enhances a Capricorn’s stability, patience, and problem solving skills. Capricorns tend to struggle with understanding others who deviate from their own beliefs, so Pink Aragonite can bring the motivation to learn about things that may feel foreign to them. This stone can also teach flexibility and tolerance as well as combating emotional stress.
This protective stone works with the root chakra. Black Tourmaline’s grounding energy can help a Capricorn thrive in any area of life, as well as providing a sense of security. This stone’s protective properties are endless, and can dispel psychic attacks and negative emotions. A Capricorn could benefit from this stone by wearing it to work or any stressful environment they find themselves in.
Fluorite is a crystal that connects to the third eye. Capricorns can use this to improve focus and mental clarity, which would aid in any career project they are working on. This stone allows one to keep their thoughts organized and make decisions. Fluorite is also effective in clearing negative energies that a Capricorn can find themselves getting caught up in.
Aquarius: January 20- February 18
Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac, and these fixed signs are humanitarians at heart, always looking out for the greater good. Represented by the water-bearer, it would be a surprise to discover that Aquarius is not a water sign, but an air sign! Just like their symbol, an Aquarian’s personality can be a little hard to figure out. Their ruler is Uranus, the planet of progressiveness and change. Aquarians tend to be very independent and are big picture thinkers, but also keep themselves extremely guarded which can make them hard to get to know. They have a hard time expressing their emotions, which can make them come off as too temperamental or too aloof. Some crystals connected to an Aquarius are:
Fuchsite is a very unique stone, much like Aquarius, and it connects to the heart chakra. This crystal teaches an Aquarian a sense of self-worth and can aid them in fighting for the greater good. Aquarians are natural helpers and healers, and Fuchsite can amplify this energy. This stone is also very special in the way that it amplifies the effects of any other crystal around it.
Grossular garnet is a kind of garnet that connects with the root, sacral, and solar plexus chakras. It teaches abundance in any form, not just physical. This stone will help an Aquarius receive anything that they have been working toward. Grossular Garnet can also reduce emotional extremes, which can make it easier for an Aquarius to process any emotions they may have a hard time articulating.
Lapis Lazuli connects with the third eye and crown chakras. This stone allows an Aquarian to express themselves freely and reveals their truth, which they may keep hidden at times. This stone also helps with accepting situations out of our hands. Lapis Lazuli also helps with building wisdom and courage, while bringing out one’s most authentic self.
Pisces: February 19-March 20
The twelfth and final sign on our list is Pisces. These mutable water signs are represented by the fish, and are labeled as the dreamers of the zodiac. Their ruling planet is Neptune, which makes for a compassionate, intuitive individual. They are extremely friendly, but also have a tendency to put their trust into the wrong people. They are very emotional and regularly let their emotions control them, but this can help them form positive friendships and relationships that prove to be long lasting. Some crystals connected to a Pisces are:
Nephrite Jade is one of the most common forms of Jade, and it connects with the heart chakra. Its nurturing energy can help a Pisces jumpstart their spiritual journey. This crystal also helps with increasing capacities for love and harmony, as well as improving happiness and overall well-being. Nephrite Jade can also help a Pisces increase their luck.
Amethyst is a protective stone that connects with the third eye and crown chakras. While it has protective energy, Amethyst also increases the intuitive and psychic abilities that a Pisces may possess. It protects the aura from negative energy and psychic attacks, as well as healing any bad habits. A Pisces can also use this stone for dreamwork and meditation.
Tremolite is a balancing stone that connects with the heart, third eye3, and crown chakras. It is known for getting rid of depression and anxiety, which is something many Pisceans struggle with. It also helps to let go of anything not serving an individual, and allows room for growth into the highest self. This stone can also help a Pisces open themselves to more love and compassion in their lives.
