The Best Crystals for Each Zodiac Sign


MAY 12, 2022


Crystals can be a great way to amplify or support our energy throughout the day. We can carry or wear them, incorporate them into self-care regimens, use them in meditation or rituals, or set them out around our homes. Deciding which crystals to work with is important as each resonates at a different frequency, aligning with and shifting your own internal energetic vibrations.

There are different ways to approach finding which crystals are best—you may feel drawn to certain colors (like blue or pink) or textures, or you could select a stone that helps with a particular healing focus, such as rose quartz for the heart or black tourmaline for protection. Another way, which we will explore in more detail here, is to choose a mineral or stone that speaks to the particular strengths or needs of your zodiac sign. 

Working with Your Sun, Moon, and Rising Signs

Before choosing the crystals for your zodiac sign, you’ll need to get clear about what energy you’d like to strengthen or balance out. First, know that there is so much more to your astrological constitution than just the sun sign you were born under! There are many online sites that allow you to map out and access your birth chart for free, and I would recommend doing that so that you get a bigger picture on the snapshot of the skies and understand what the planets were up to at the moment you made your grand entrance into the world.

The “big three” signs to check out are your sun, moon, and rising signs, although learning more about your Mercury, Venus, and Mars signs can offer helpful insights as well.

—Your sun sign refers to the constellation that the sun was in at the time you were born and speaks most to your core identity. Crystals for your sun sign will help you work at the level of your identity and understanding of yourself.

—Your moon sign is determined by which part of the skies the moon was in at your birth and refers most to your inner/emotional world. Choosing stones for your moon sign is great when you need vibrational support at the emotional level.

—Lastly, the persona you project outwards is determined by your rising sign, the part of the sky that was ascending over the eastern horizon at the time of your birth. The rising sign can reflect the qualities that people most readily associate with you. Crystals under your rising sign will help you work with the energies relating to how you come off to others, present yourself in the world, and play with the vibrations of your “personal brand.”

Once you know your sun, moon, and rising signs, consider how these energies are working for you at the moment—are you feeling restricted, limited, or challenged by your identity, inner world, or persona and finding the need for greater balance? On the other hand, do you want to strengthen and solidify these key qualities or find a way to express them more clearly?

We’ve put together a few suggestions of crystals that you can use to amplify or strengthen the qualities of each sign, as well as a few that will help you balance out any excessive expressions of them. Of course, you might want to incorporate crystals for all three!
