As if you needed another excuse to collect more crystals. Crystals can amplify our energy and remind us of our intentions — and picking the right crystals for your astrological sign can be a fun way to discover the energetic balance you need.
Are you an Aquarius? A magical piece of Amethyst may help connect you to your intuition. Love a Leo? Get them some Carnelian to power-up their passion. Whatever your sign (or your best friend’s, or your mom’s) this comprehensive guide from our favorite crystal pros at Energy Muse will point you in the right direction…
As fun as an astrological reading can be, I believe the true purpose of astrology is to get to know ourselves and our souls on a deeper level. Astrology provides a deep understanding of characteristics that guide us, which then allows us to incorporate tools to help us spiritually evolve and come into balance. Take me, for example. I’m a Scorpio (ah, the infamous sign), and I refer to my astrological sign to bring more awareness to the areas in which I can grow, spiritually and emotionally.
The Connection Between Crystals + Astrological Signs
After getting into the mindset of looking at your astrological sign as a guide for how to live your best life, crystals are the next obvious choice for a tool to balance out your sign. While I truly believe we can benefit from all crystals at different times in our lives, there are definitely some crystals that are particularly well suited to certain astrological signs. Here are a few guidelines…
