It may seem like crystals have suddenly become all the rage, but people have used them for a deep spiritual practice for thousands of years. People have been using crystals for several things, such as healing tools, protection, and expanding their creativity. Learning about crystals and using them daily can benefit you greatly
You can get even more benefit from them when you know how they interact with your specific zodiac sign. To get the best use out of them, learn which ones go hand-in-hand with your zodiac sign. The list below highlights some of each sign’s most common negative traits and what crystals can help counteract these traits.
Aries- Pyrite, Quartz, and Carnelian
Aries (March 21st to April 19th) have a “get it done” attitude that can make them impulsive and impatient. Quartz, Pyrite, and Carnelian all get along with this sign because they promote a feeling of calm. They balance their energy, allowing them to take a breath and relax. Pyrite gives Aries the perseverance to accomplish things they start, while Quartz and Carnelian help cool their explosive nature.
Taurus- Malachite, Carnelian, and Green Jade
Taurus (April 20th to May 20th)) has a very down-to-earth yet headstrong personality. They can be self-indulgent sometimes, and Malachite helps them learn and grow throughout their life stages. It’s also easy for them to fall into a “lazy” rut, and Carnelian helps bring out their inner leader and inspires them to get moving. Green jade helps counteract their stubbornness and helps them keep their cool during challenging times that they might face.
Gemini- Blue Lace, Agate, and Moonstone
Geminis (May 21st to June 20th) are prone to nervousness and anxiety. Blue Lace helps ease these feelings for them by introducing peace and calm into their lives. They can also lack direction, so Agate is excellent for them because it roots out mysterious and powerful messages that help them know what to do. Geminis can also be very sensitive, and Moonstone works with Agate to ensure their emotional instability doesn’t trap them.
Cancer- Black Kyanite, Chrysocolla, and Moonstone
Cancers (June 22nd to July 22nd) are known for being loving and protective but moody and clingy. Black Kyanite and Chrysocolla help them cut ties with toxic energies and unhealthy relationships. They also have powerful intuition and an intense connection to the moon. Moonstone helps fortify this already strong relationship.
Leo- Carnelian, Tiger’s Eye, and Pyrite
Leos (July 23rd to August 22nd) can tend to come off as self-centered and arrogant. Carnelian can help Leos focus the energy in their heart on something more positive and understanding. Tiger’s Eye and Pyrite help them manifest abundance and release creative energy in a positive and grounding way.
Virgo- Citrine, Celestine, and Green Jade
Virgos (August 23rd and September 22nd) tend to think too practically and analytically when trying to achieve higher intuition. Citrine and Celestine assist them in opening their minds and thinking outside the box to accomplish this. They can also have difficulty finding a balance between body, mind, and soul, and Green Jade helps them find that perfect equilibrium.
Libra- Aquamarine, Labradorite and Lapis Lazuli
Libras (September 23rd to October 22nd) can sometimes be superficial and detached. Aquamarine is an excellent crystal for them because it helps them tone down their habit of judging others. It also helps them be more open-minded to things they may not understand. They can be pretty indecisive in their lives, and Labradorite and Lapis Lazuli helps them with this. Labradorite fortifies their sense of self and Lapis Lazuli by assisting them in making decisions and fully expressing themselves.
Scorpio- Sodalite, Amethyst, and Citrine
Scorpios (October 23rd to November 21st) have fiery and passionate energy that can sometimes be too much. Sodalite helps Scorpios find the calm energy they sometimes need to find peace and relax. Amethyst is another good crystal for Scorpios because it removes negative energy that could get in the way of their powerful intuition. Scorpios can tend to get down and be depressed, so Citrine is excellent for igniting their zest for life and giving them a determined spirit.
Sagittarius- Citrine, Black Onyx, and Bronzite
Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st) can be impatient and inconsistent, so Citrine is excellent for them to use because it helps them decide what goals they want to achieve and go after them. They are also very free-spirited and have difficulty being grounded, so Black Onyx and Bronzite can work together to help them find structure in their wild lives. They also help keep them on the right path and stay down-to-earth.
Capricorn- Moonstone, Sodalite, and Garnet
Capricorns (December 22nd to January 20th) are known for being pretty stable and grounded, but they can also be self-centered and moody often. Moonstone and Sodalite help Capricorns connect with their intuition and shadow to remove some of these tendencies, and they can find peace and harmony in their lives. Garnet is a good stone for them because it helps them reinforce their ambitious and disciplined nature.
Aquarius- Yellow Jasper, Aquamarine, and Black Onyx
Aquarius (January 20th to February 18th) can, if not careful, tend to go off-track, get distracted, and become anxiety-ridden. Yellow Jasper helps them alleviate the anxiety and nerves that keep them from doing what they must do. Aquamarine helps them stay in touch with their higher purpose and spiritual nature. Black Onyx protects them from over-extending themselves to the service of others and cleanses them of negativity.
Pisces- Bloodstone, Sodalite, and Amethyst
Pisces (February 19th to March 20th) can find it challenging to stay grounded due to their strong intuition and are also very emotional people with many feelings. Bloodstone helps keep them grounded, and Sodalite assists them in creating more logic-based thoughts versus emotion-based ones. They’re also pretty selfless and always willing to lend a hand to help those in need.
This is a good trait, but it can place a heavy burden on their shoulders, which Amethyst helps them with by cutting out the responsibility they put on themselves to fix other people’s problems and difficulties.
