There are many components of a natal chart that can shed light on any number of nuances of your unique astrological profile. For example, your moon sign reflects your internal emotional personality, your rising sign reflects how others see you, and your sun sign reflects your essence (and is what you would look to when reading your daily horoscope). All are key for understanding the unique facets of your astrological makeup, but there’s more: Healing stones for zodiac signs stand to heighten your vibrations and help facilitate relaxation and balance.
“Astrology helps to give us a deeper understanding of who we are and illuminates both our strengths and weaknesses,” says astrologer Kate Feder of Basic Girl Astrology. “Each crystal has its own healing properties that draw parallels to the needs of each sign. For example, an Aries might want to work on patience and feeling still—a crystal like hematite, which promotes calm energy, is the perfect match.”
Healing stones for zodiac signs offer balancing and empowering vibes. But before you buy one, do your due diligence to find a stone that was ethically sourced by asking the seller about its origins (or, you could consider dedicating a mindfulness practice to focusing on the powers that the healing stone poses to bring you). Below, learn which healing stone corresponds with your zodiac sign.
