Here we are going to discuss about Zodiac sign and the birth stone or crystals. Let's find out together the perfect crystal for each zodiac sign and their properties.
The world of crystals is very fascinating and there is a lot to explore. Each crystal has different properties, so the correct use of them can help us reach our goals more easily and with greater awareness, or to work on some issues and again to improve our days from a psycho-physical point of view.
Another interesting aspect of crystal therapy is that each zodiac sign has a natural affinity with certain crystals and stones, and these combinations can generate a powerful and magical exchange of energies.
1. ARIES (March 21 – April 19):
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, known for its fiery and energetic personality. Their bold, ambitious personality. Aries love to be number one, and they’ll throw themselves into challenging situations with passion and confidence. Like their fellow fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius, Aries think after they take action. In many situations, their impulsiveness can be seen as a weakness, but it’s this youthful strength and energy that helps them finish strong.
Red Jasper, Carnelian and Citrine are the matching crystals for Aries.
The perfect crystal for Aries is Carnelian: it will not only help you recharge your batteries, but also heal your (sometimes dangerous) impulsiveness. In addition, this stone infuses vitality, optimism, joy and helps eliminate negative feelings such as jealousy and envy, improving mood. The naturally high-energy sign should work with stones that keep their fire fuelled of the passionate fire sign. Red jasper promotes vitality and prevents energetic depletion, carnelian enhances passion and courage, and citrine promotes manifestation and abundance.”
2. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20):
Ruled by Venus, Taurus values the finer things in life, especially love. 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,”
Their reliability and passion. Taurus is an earth sign, so they’re grounded into reality and able to see things from a practical point of view. These individuals born between the end of April and May search for stability in both people and in situations, which leads to a strong dislike for change. Taurus signs stick to what they know and are often uncompromising, which is why many look to them for stability. Though their strong-willed nature may come across as stubborn, a Taurus will tell you that they’re simply committed and protective of their ideas and their people.
Taurus matching stones are Selenite, Smoky Quartz and the Rose quartz.
Selenite provides clarity and positivity, and smoky quartz detoxifies negative energy and promotes grounding. Rose Quartz can help this sign open the heart chakra and release a good dose of romance. But not only that, always carrying a small rose quartz with you can help protect it from future potential heart breaks.
3. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Being expressive and sociable. Geminis love to communicate with people and are constantly fascinated by conversations, experiences, and people. They belong to the air sign, which explains their dynamic and easily-changeable personality. They adapt quickly in different social situations, which is why they thrive at parties and events. Geminis are creative and restless, so they chase after variety and mentally stimulating situations to hide their nerves and prevent boredom. These outgoing, intelligent, and impulsive social butterflies can shop gemstones that keep the air sign calm and grounded.

4. CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
It is known, on a bad day, the sweet Cancer can experience super intense emotions that can bring out anxieties and paranoia. Their deeply intuitive and sentimental behaviour. Cancers are deeply caring and loyal to their family and loved ones. Like fellow water signs, Scorpio and Pisces, Cancer signs roll in and out of emotional tides because of their sensitive nature. Not only are they in-tune with their own emotions, but they are also conscious of how other people feel. Their ability to empathize with others goes hand-in-hand with their ability to intuit people and their motivations, before they’ve even spoken. They're born between the end of June and July.
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.
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. The Moonstone is, in this respect, the ideal crystal for this water sign! In fact, its power is to relieve inner tensions, giving vibes of calm and serenity, and even help stabilize their sometimes fluctuating and dramatic sensations.
5. LEO (July 22 – August 22)
Leo's are Being great leaders and even greater friends. Like their lion sign, Leos are loyal and always look out for their own people, which is why they’re often surrounded by many friends. They're born between the months of July and August. Their charisma attracts others to them, and a Leo knows they’re charming, which can sometimes lead to an inflated ego. But they work hard to earn admiration and attention from the people they love.
Because Leos constantly give so much energy to others, it is important that they work with crystals that keep them energized and grounded, generous, loyal, and magnetic lion.
Rose quartz encourages self-acceptance and enhances empathy, The Tiger's Eye is known as the traditional crystal of Leo, because it allows you to channel greater creativity and positivity towards the sign. This amber coloured stone is capable of harmonizing the energy centres, allowing you to reach new positivity and a new balance with more ease and protection.
6. VIRGO ( August 23 – September 22)
Their logical and detail-oriented nature. Virgos are methodical in how they approach life, preferring to take fate into their own hands. Though others may point out a Virgo’s unnecessary need for control, their perfectionism and hard-work will be the ultimate drivers of their success! But no matter how successful they get, you’ll rarely see a Virgo brag about their achievements. In fact, they’re often self-critical and will downplay their accomplishments, being careful not to fall into their own ego.
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.
Red Jasper, Amazonite, Amethyst, Fluorite are the Virgos Crystals.
Amazonite creates balance by connecting the inner and outer self, amethyst encourages light and positive energy, and fluorite eliminates unproductive thinking and promotes positivity. The Virgo sign and the Red Jasper have a lot in common: both are known for bringing practicality and clarity to every area. For this reason it is definitely the perfect crystal for this earth sign. The Red Jasper gives a greater capacity of attention to the Virgo, already hyper-organized and analytical of her, allowing to solve all problems quickly and smoothly.
7. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Keeping the peace. Libras are diplomatic and are constantly chasing after equality and justice. Represented by a scale, a Libra is fascinated by balance, which is why they make great mediators in arguments (though most of the time, they prefer to avoid confrontation). Unlike Virgos, a Libra takes a big-picture approach to life. They are daydreamers, inspired by good books and intellectual discussions, and they're both between the months of September and October.
Libras thrive on fun, laughter, and adventure, and are happiest when they are surrounded by those they care about.
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.
The ideal crystal for Libra is Absolutely the Lapis Lazuli. Its deep blue colour recalls that of the sky and the gold-coloured veins of the stars, a perfect pattern for that Libra aesthete. Lapis Lazuli helps balance inner energies which is why it pairs so well with this air sign. The blue crystal encourages the sign to be more aware of himself and helps him to accept himself for what he is, finding his own personal harmony.
8. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21):
Their persistence and passion. Scorpios are excellent leaders because they’re dedicated to what they do. They are relentless in pushing forward until they’ve met or surpassed their goals. Though they are often seen as obsessive, a Scorpio sees themselves as determined. They are water signs, so they feel and express their emotions very intensely. As friends, Scorpios are loyal and protective, but as enemies, they can be ruthless. 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.
Amethyst enhances clarity and spiritual guidance. The crystal combined with the mysterious sign of Scorpio is the Obsidian, a powerful talisman with a protective power. Always carrying this stone with you will allow you to make great personal changes in a short time, working on your hidden problems that can generate suffering. It helps protect yourself from negative vibrations and improve the intuitive side of this water sign. Finally, the Obsidian pushes to face their own shadows, bringing to light all those situations that do not yet have a solution.
9. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarius signs are born to be adventurers and love to embark on new journeys, both literally and metaphorically. They’re not afraid to take risks and travel solo, even though they know their carelessness can sometimes lead to hurt or danger. A Sagittarius sign’s open mind and free-spirit sparks all kinds of philosophical conversations (which explains why they belong to the element of fire).
Sagittarius [loves] to explore new adventures, travel, and experience anything that enables freedom. They benefit from working with crystals that can replenish their energy while keeping it protected.
Sagittarians love to explore the depths of their spirituality. Lapis lazuli, as the Stone of Truth, enhances spiritual knowledge and encourages honest communication. By developing a profound understanding of your true self, you’ll speak from a higher state of consciousness.
Jupiter, the planet that rules Sagittarius, is also connected with lapis lazuli. The combination of this crystal and planet helps you to embrace your independence and freedom.
Moonstone is a lovely gemstone for Sagittarius. With its feminine energy and lunar connection, it helps you to flow with life’s ever-changing rhythms. This makes it a perfect crystal when facing an important life decision.
Its serene energy also teaches you to be aware of your unconscious mind. As Sagittarians love self-exploration, moonstone helps to release your creative talents.

10. CAPRICORN ( December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns are Discipline and self-control also diligent, hard-working people, like their fellow earth signs, Taurus and Virgo. They value practicality and take a calm, analytical approach to life, often setting emotions aside to get work done. Though they may seem cold, Capricorns are rather guarded with their feelings, able to control how much they feel, so as not to let emotions get in the way of their goals. Capricorns are very realistic and can handle pressure very well, which is why they’re great to have on your side for an argument.
They are fearless, highly intellectual, and surround themselves with few close friends that make them feel supported and follow their lead, 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. The ideal crystal for Capricorn is Green Jade, a precious stone with an intense green colour, its power is to strengthen memory and promote communication, courage and thought. In short, it can help the sign to say aloud what it needs, without hesitation. Jade will help the sign to manifest its truest and deepest desires, especially in the relational and work environment.
11. AQUARIUS ( January 20 – February 18):
Being eccentric and highly intelligent. Aquarians are deep thinkers with the love for helping others. Like their fellow air signs, Gemini and Libra, Aquarians look for ways to stimulate their mind at every opportunity. They enjoy problem-solving and fighting for causes, making them natural humanitarians. But Aquarians tend to be emotionally detached because they value speaking their mind over trusting their feelings. Their desire to help others is driven by intellect, not emotions.
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.
Amethyst is the Aquarius Crystal.
Amethyst enhances intuition and spiritual guidance. Among the different crystals combined with the sign of Aquarius, Amethyst is one of our favourites. This stone works on the mental plane, helping that brilliant Aquarius sign to speed up the reasoning processes and quickly find the solution to any question. It is also particularly suitable for working on one's emotions, especially when you have blocks and difficulties in letting yourself go with others.
12. PISCES (February 19 – March 20):
They are compassionate and creative personality. Pisces is a water sign, so they absorb and reflect the feelings of those around them. Their empathetic nature is why they often find themselves in the company of very different people. They’re tolerant, accepting, and extremely caring of others, always willing to help without expecting anything in return. Their deeply sensitive nature translates well into creative energy, which is why Pisces signs have an artistic gift. 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.
Pisces are best suited for crystals that help them express themselves and keep their energy high. Hence you can pick clear quartz to cleanses and purifies energy, carnelian to enhance creativity and life-force energy.
The perfect crystal for Pisces is The Amethyst! This purple stone represents spiritual wisdom, a typical feature of this water sign. Not only that, Amethyst can also help strengthen intuition and protect against negative vibrations, which is perfect for the more sensitive Pisces. Finally, the use of this crystal can bring greater concentration, improving the ability to pay attention to everything that is important and to bring Pisces down to earth, always with their heads in the clouds!
