Crystals are one of the most popular spiritual tools around. These gorgeous gemstones have been known to carry healing and restorative properties, and each crystal comes with its own unique energy. If you're not sure where to start in your crystal journey, why not turn to your zodiac sign?
"Selecting a crystal that aligns with your zodiac sign allows you to harness the energy around you and promote spiritual growth and awareness," explains Rebecca Farrar, professional astrologer and mystic. Curious to know more? Keep reading to discover which crystal pairs best with your zodiac sign.
Aries: Red Jasper
Aries is known for being confident and quick-witted. You're always on the move, chasing down exciting new ideas and plans. But all that intensity means you're also short-tempered, impatient, and impulsive at times—so you need a crystal to help focus all your expendable energy.
"Aries, ruled by the planet Mars, may benefit from wearing or carrying crystals such as red jasper or bloodstone, which relate to Mars' energy and can help boost energy levels, increase courage, and promote physical strength," shares Farrar "This can be especially helpful for Aries individuals who may struggle with self-doubt or need a boost of energy and motivation to pursue their goals."
Taurus: Rose Quartz
Taurus is patient, reliable, and warm-hearted. Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, you're very tuned into your feelings and indulge in all things romance. There's no denying the persistent and determined earth sign influence on your personality, which makes you very stubborn at times. A crystal that will help you embrace relaxation and self-care is the best choice.
"Rose quartz connects with the energy of love and compassion and can promote emotional healing and self-love, which can be especially helpful for Tauruses who value security and stability in their relationships," explains Farrar.

Gemini: Clear Quartz
Ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication and intellect, Geminis are chatty and outgoing. You have an active life and imagination, and you're always going a million miles an hour. And while you love being busy, it can impact your ability to see the big picture, which is why you'll fare best with a crystal that helps you slow down.
"Clear quartz helps with clarity, focus, and amplification, and enhances the energies of intuition and spiritual awareness. This can be especially helpful for Gemini individuals who may struggle with indecisiveness or overthinking, as it can promote a sense of mental clarity," Farrar explains.
Cancer is the sentimental sweetheart of the zodiac. You're known for your compassionate heart, creative mind, and unexpected moody side. You can't help it—you have a lot of feelings that need to be expressed. This is why crystals that strengthen emotional harmony are best for you.
"Moonstone helps balance intuition and moodiness, something well-known with these sensitive types," says Farrar, who also recommends pearl. "It is believed to promote feelings of nurturing, comfort, and security, which can be especially beneficial for Cancer individuals who value emotional security and stability."

Leo is the bold extrovert of the bunch. Your energy is very powerful and radiates through every room you enter. And for all the love you give yourself, you show that same affection to others, so you need a crystal that amplifies your positive energy.
"Keeping a Leo feeling shiny means letting their vitality, energy, and creative expression flare forth. Citrine promotes feelings of confidence, strength, and optimism, which can be especially helpful for Leo individuals who want to express their leadership qualities," notes Farrar. "It is believed to help manifest abundance and success."
Virgo: Moss Agate
Often coined the perfectionist of the zodiac, nothing gets past the watchful eye of a Virgo. You have an active mind and your organization skills are second to none. As hardworking as you are, though, you can also be your own worst critic. A crystal that encourages stillness is best for you.
"Amazonite and moss agate can help root this sign into practicality without rigidity," Farrar explains. "Amazonite cultivates harmony in communication. Similarly, moss agate is associated with… stability and can help this Earth sign ground one's energy."

Libra is known for being thoughtful, fair-minded, and incredibly easygoing. Ruled by Venus, the planet of romance and beauty, you love to go out and socialize. You keep yourself busy with plenty of projects and hobbies, so you need a crystal that will help you turn inward.
"Libra loves beauty and sweetness in connection, and lepidolite can help find a sense of inner peace and calm… rather than relying on others," says Farrar. She also suggests rhodonite as it "promotes compassion and self-love and is beneficial for the indecision and self-doubt often associated with this sign."
Scorpio: Black Tourmaline
Scorpios are known for their complex personalities. As a water sign, you're great at picking up on the energy around you. Although you play it cool, you can be a bit of a worrier, so the best crystal for you will balance your energy and clear out negative vibes.
"Scorpio—known for its intense emotions, passion, and depth—can benefit from connecting with black tourmaline. This stone relates to the root chakra, which is the energy center in the body that is associated with grounding, stability, and physical well-being," explains Farrar. "It can also help guarded and elusive Scorpio feel more [present]."
Sagittarius: Lapis Lazuli
Sagittarius is the open-minded adventurer. You love to learn new things and travel, and it's important for you to be free to switch things up on a whim. The ideal crystal for you will amplify your creative side and inspire you to chase your dreams.
"Both lapis lazuli and turquoise can help Sagittarius find their truth while promoting spiritual growth and personal transformation," shares Farrar. "Lapis lazuli relates to wisdom and inner vision to promote philosophical wisdom, while Turquoise enhances self-expression for this sign who may sometimes have difficulty expressing emotions that don't feel as optimistic."
Capricorn: Smoky Quartz
Capricorns are highly driven. Success and stability are huge motivators for you, and you'll stop at nothing to reach your goals. But relaxing at the end of a stressful day can be difficult for you, so you need a crystal that encourages self-care and inner reflection.
"Capricorn energies can sometimes be too focused on working hard or a sense of scarcity. Smoky quartz can help open new possibilities with discipline and reliability," Farrar explains. "Capricorns are known for being grounded and practical, and smoky quartz is believed to help with clarity, focus, and practicality, helping them stay on track and achieve their goals."

Aquarius is the eccentric rebel of the zodiac. Ruled by Uranus, the planet of revolution and radical change, you have an active mind that loves dreaming up new solutions to old problems. But all those competing thoughts can make your head spin, necessitating a crystal that promotes mental clarity.
"Aquarius has a reputation for being unconventional and adaptable. Amethyst helps with intuition, spiritual growth, and clarity of thought and can enhance their ability to… pursue their goals with creativity," explains Farrar. "On the other hand, a crystal like aquamarine helps them communicate their ideas and emotions in a clear and effective way."
Pisces: Blue Agate
Pisces is the inventive and imaginative empath of the zodiac. You're naturally tuned in to the world around you, thanks to your planetary ruler Neptune, which governs dreams and intuition. But you're so prone to absorbing the feelings of others, it can become too much to handle.
"Pisces can sometimes feel a bit lost at sea, so keeping it tethered to reality and not spending too much time in daydreams can be helpful through grounding, yet permeable stones such as blue agate, which helps enhance intuition and allows empathy to shine through with effective communication," says Farrar.
