Does the idea of crystal healing sound unbelievable to you? Some of the most die-hard supporters of crystal healing were once themselves skeptics. “I used to find the idea far-fetched myself. Still, when you think about the fact that stones originate deep within the earth’s crust and that we have a natural harmony with the earth, it begins to make sense,” writes Kristin Petrovich, co-founder of Själ Skincare and author of Elemental Energy: Crystal and Gemstone Rituals for a Beautiful Life.
For mystically-inclined babes and those with an interest in astrology, the options for crystal therapy are endless. “I suggest researching stones that are associated with your elemental sign (i.e. fire, water, air, earth) and seeing which ones you resonate with,” Petrovich shares. “Using astrological gemstones can be beneficial as they typically work in tandem with one’s personality while supporting any weaknesses or potential issues.”
We also tapped Mazz Hanna, a crystal healer, to share her knowledge of crystals’ subtle energetic frequencies and to recommend the best crystals for each zodiac sign to help balance you out on an ethereal level. Get ready to kick off your crystal collections with the nuggets of wisdom below.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Red Jasper, Carnelian, Citrine
“The naturally high-energy sign should work with stones that keep their fire fueled,” Hanna explains of the passionate fire sign. “Red jasper promotes vitality and prevents energetic depletion, carnelian enhances passion and courage, and citrine promotes manifestation and abundance.”
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Amazonite, Selenite, Smoky Quartz
The reliable, patient, humble Earth sign is also known for being stubborn and hard-headed. “[Taureans] should work with crystals that keep them cool, calm, and grounded,” she says. Also, “Amazonite helps calm the mind from unproductive thoughts, selenite provides clarity and positivity, and smoky quartz detoxifies negative energy and promotes grounding.”
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Shungite, Amazonite, Tiger’s Eye
Hana recommends that these outgoing, intelligent, and impulsive social butterflies shop gemstones that keep the air sign calm and grounded. “Shungite reduces stress and enhances optimism, amazonite helps quell anxiety and unnecessary worry, and tiger’s eye brings balance to opposing views and thoughts.”
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Selenite, Labradorite, Red Jasper
Emotional, loyal, and intuitive Cancerian babes are some of the most intuitive signs that can immediately sense vibes. “The water sign is sensitive on all levels, loyal in all relationships, and highly emotional, [so they] should work with stones that enhance their psychic abilities and keep their energy protected,” she says. This calls for selenite, which eliminates negative attachments to the aura, labradorite to enhance psychic intuition, and red jasper to enhance emotional stamina and memory.
Leo (July 22 – August 22): Tiger’s Eye, Rose Quartz, Garnet
“Because Leos constantly give so much energy to others, it is important that they work with crystals that keep them energized and grounded,” she says of the generous, loyal, and magnetic lion. “Tiger’s eye offers energetic support and enhances creativity, rose quartz encourages self-acceptance and enhances empathy, and garnet promotes loyalty, and enhances strength and confidence.”
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Amazonite, Amethyst, Fluorite
“Because Virgos are perfectionists, the constant battle between chaos and order can be energetically draining [for them]. So, they should work with crystals that help them with emotional balance and keeping themselves focused on their goals,” she says. Amazonite creates balance by connecting the inner and outer self, amethyst encourages light and positive energy, and fluorite eliminates unproductive thinking and promotes positivity.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): Tiger’s Eye, Amethyst, Bloodstone
“Libras thrive on fun, laughter, and adventure, and are happiest when they are surrounded by those they care about,” Hana shares about the air sign. “Because Libra seeks balance in every area of life, they should work with crystals that help them feel secure.” Tiger’s eye helps connect the inner and outer self, amethyst encourages clarity and spiritual guidance, and bloodstone enhances courage, bravery, and decisiveness.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Pink Tourmaline, Amethyst, K2
“This intensity can come through when [the water sign] is pursuing a goal as they have unmatched focus once they set their eyes on something. Because they are such driven, focused, and sensitive people, they should work with crystals that help them support and balance their energy,” Hanna reveals. Pink tourmaline encourages soft, gentle, and soothing energy, amethyst enhances clarity and spiritual guidance, and K2 promotes balance and harmony in all aspects of life.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Lepidolite, Smoky Quartz, Shungite
“Sagittarius [loves] to explore new adventures, travel, and experience anything that enables freedom,” Hanna notes of the fire sign. “They benefit from working with crystals that can replenish their energy while keeping it protected.” Lepidolite brings balance and encourages stillness, smoky quartz transforms negative energy into positive, and shungite reduces stress and promotes grounding.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Rose Quartz, Garnet, Smoky Quartz
“They are fearless, highly intellectual, and surround themselves with few close friends that make them feel supported and follow their lead,” she explains of the most serious sign of the zodiac. “Because Capricorns tend to be hard on themselves, they should work on crystals that encourage self-acceptance and grounding.” Rose quartz promotes self-love and reduces stress, garnet offers strength, courage, and confidence to succeed, and smoky quartz is both grounding and detoxifying for the energy field.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Lepidolite, Amethyst, Tourmalinated Quartz
“Rather than follow the crowd, they are free-spirited, open-minded, radical, and rebellious leaders of the pack that often focus on the bigger picture. They benefit from working with crystals that keep them present and in touch with their higher self,” Hanna says of the individualistic air sign. Lepidolite alleviates stress and clears emotional blockages, amethyst enhances intuition and spiritual guidance, and tourmalinated quartz promotes harmony and helps banish negative thoughts.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Clear Quartz, Carnelian, Chrysocolla
Highly sensitive Pisceans crave inner and outer harmony. “They are unconditionally loving, almost to a fault, and often put the needs of others before their own,” Hanna reveals of the creative and likable water sign. Pisces are best suited for crystals that help them express themselves and keep their energy high. Hence she picks clear quartz to cleanses and purifies energy, carnelian to enhance creativity and life-force energy, and chrysocolla to encourage self-expression.
