Pro tip: Wanna up your manifesting ~powers~? Snag some specific crystals that align with, what else, your Sun Sign! “Crystals are the skeleton of our planet. Working with them allows us to utilize the energy from the earth,” says Bri Luna, owner and creative director of The Hoodwitch. (Psst: Bri sells some verrrrry pretty crystals on her site, BTW.) “Every crystal is made up of different properties. Using such properties and attuning to that energy lends us healing power that helps us manifest our goals.”
Each Sun Sign has a natural affinity for certain crystal, stones, and minerals, Bri explains. And aligning with that “organic counterpart” can be supes powerful. Magical, even!
Take, for example, Scorpio’s relationship with Obsidian.” Formed from a volcanic eruption, Obsidian really resonates with Scorpio’s transformative vibe,” Bri says. “As one of the most powerful stones of the mineral kingdom (it’s a thing), it has the ability to cleanse and protect. It can serve as a form of psychic and aura protection.”
Now, let’s find the ideal crystal to maximize your vibe!
As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries are known for their vibrant and fiery personalities. Carnelian will not only help the ram achieve that vitality, but also ground and soothe that Aries prowess, which often gets them in trouble.
TAURUS: ROSE QUARTZ
Ruled by Venus, the Bull enjoys the finer things in life—especially love. Rose Quartz helps to open up the heart chakra and bring romance to Taurus, as well as protect it from future heart ache.
Citrine helps increase intelligence, which is what the airy twins ultimately long for in life. Through the guidance of this crystal, Gemini will also be able to enhance their memory and energy.
On a bad day, the crab can have super intense emotions that can bring out their anxieties. Moonstone aims to help alleviate Cancer’s inner tension by providing calmness and even stabilizing their sometimes erratic and dramatic feels.
LEO: TIGER’S EYE
Tiger’s eye is known as the traditional Leo stone because it is a creativity and positivity opener. It opens roads by allowing the lion to see achieve confidence, positivity, and balance.
VIRGO: RED JASPER
Both Virgo and red jasper are known to bring practicality and clarity to all matters. Red Jasper adds focus to hyper organized and analytical Virgo, which allows the Mercurial sign to problem solve all matters swiftly and without a hitch.
LIBRA: LAPIS LAZULI
This blue gem helps balance the energies within, which is why it resonates so much with Libra. Lapis lazuli encourages Libra to center itself and to never tip its scales (which is, um, easy to do in life).
Shielding from neg vibes is the incentive of Obsidian, who serves to cleanse Scorpio’s aura by enhancing the water sign’s intuitive side. These two work hand-in-hand. Obsidian brings the gift of prophecy and Scorpio gives the crystal immense power.
Turquoise is ideal for enhancing luck—which is what the spirited archer is known to bring. Together, Sag and Turquoise are the manifesting dream team!
Just like the earthy sign of Capricorn, Jade is all business. It helps manifest abundance and prosperity, which is what Capricorn longs for deep down. Jade will help the sea-goat manifest its truest desires: success, abundance, fame, and wealth.
Aquamarine can heal the physical body, which, trust me, you need. (You’re a fragile, bb.) It’s also an ideal crystal for rebellious Aquarius because it inspires and brings radical change to the water-bearer.
Amethyst represents spiritual wisdom, just like the watery astrological sign. Not only that, it helps to boost one’s intuition and protects the aura from negative vibes, which is perfect for sensitive Pisces.
