    Below you'll find a list of each of the twelve zodiac signs, the sign's most common traits, and a crystal that would be great for each sign to work with. 

    Aries ♈️

    Common characteristics of an Aries: Aries, the youngest of the zodiac, are very fun people: they get bored super easily, so if you hang with them you'll no doubt be having an action-packed good time. These fiery people tend to be quick to get angry, but then are also quick to forget why they were angry just minutes later. If you're a board game person, Aries are great people to sit down and play Settlers of Catan (or your game of choice) with because they're so competitive by nature — but also have a great sense of humor and and take a loss in stride.

    Some well-known Aries: Seth Rogen, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Lil Nas X, Kourtney Kardashian, Diana Ross, Jim Parsons, Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Jessica Parker, Elton John, Fergie, Jessica Chastain, Ilana Glazer, Steven Tyler, Celine Dion, and Big Sean.

    The Best Crystal For Aries: Blue Kyanite

    Fire sign Aries can sometimes bounce from one extreme to the other, frustrating themselves in the process. Blue Kyanite is a striking blue stone that's connected to our throat chakra and helps with communicating the words that you may or may not actually mean to say. Blue Kyanite is believed to help the user see the universal truth around them more clearly, helping to bring their anger down to a more peaceful state. An extremely high vibrational stone, it doesn't need to be cleansed and can actually be used to cleanse other stones.

    Taurus ♉️

    Common characteristics of a Taurus: This Earth sign is an incredibly reliable, comforting, and, well, down-to-earth person who gives pretty great advice. While they can absolutely be stubborn at times, they make great listeners. Yes they value comfort and the finer things in life, and, and yes, like the memes all say: Tauruses love their food, so don't mess with theirs (or steal their fries). 

    Some well-known Tauruses: Adele, The Rock, Cher, Rami Malek, Dev Patel, George Clooney, Kenan Thompson, Aidy Bryant, Robert Pattinson, Janet Jackson, Tony Hawk, John Cena, Stevie Wonder, Rosario Dawson, Will Arnett, and Gigi Hadid. 

    The Best Crystal For Taurus: Rose Quartz

    Earth sign Taurus enjoys all things beautiful and Rose Quartz is no exception. The stubborn bulls that they are, this stone will help a Taurus truly get over whatever they're holding onto. Rose Quartz has a calm and loving vibration that's all about healing the inner turmoil inside your heart. For a Taurus, this can lead to forgiveness of others — or even forgiveness of one's self. It's also a crystal that's tied to love and bringing more of it into your life, so for any single Tauruses out there, I would recommend getting to know this precious stone because it can't hurt, right?

    Gemini ♊️

    Common characteristics of a Gemini: Be honest: think about the Geminis in your life. Have you met a more charismatic person before? Probably not. These people have been blessed with the gift of gab and can easily entertain old friends and new acquaintances (even all at once). Incredible social butterflies, they tend to be found gossiping often and are generally quite extroverted people. They also tend to know a lot about everything (or at least, they think that they do).

    Some well-known Geminis: Kanye West, Angelina Jolie, Bill Hader, Amy Schumer, Kendrick Lamar, Iggy Azalea, Chris Pratt, Stevie Nicks, Troye Sivan, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. 

    The Best Crystal For Gemini: Aquamarine

    In my experience, Geminis are always busy: whether it's their social calendar or literally their conversation skills, they keep things moving no matter what. Aquamarine, a bright light blue stone, can help to soothe their overactive mind and calm them down. This stone is said to help with the crystal user's perception of the world around them, helping them to find clarity in confusing times. It also is said to help with feelings of being overwhelmed and is a generally supportive stone.

    Cancer ♋️

    Common characteristics of a Cancer: These water signs are some of the most empathetic people you'll ever talk to — and if you're best friends with one, you already know that you have a trusty confidant for life. Cancers tend to wear their heart on their sleeve and are known one of the most sensitive types of the Zodiac, but they do have a tipping point: once you burn them and break their trust, they won't likely forget it.

    Some well-known Cancers: Tom Hanks, Selena Gomez, Lana Del Rey, Khloe Kardashian, Sandra Oh, Jaden Smith, Ariana Grande, Nick Offerman, Solange Knowles, and Mindy Kaling.

    The Best Crystal For Cancer: Moonstone

    One thing that's for certain for the oh-so-delicate Cancers is that they can often be at the mercy of their own moods. Whether happy or sad, this astrological sign tends to get caught up on waves of their own emotion. In order to help balance out these intense changes in their own worldview, Moonstone can help soothe the ebbs and flows of their emotional life. This crystal is said to ease stress and helps with instability, therefore being the perfect partner to a Cancer. This stone comes in a variety of colors and can be worn as jewelry, used for meditation, or could be just something pretty to look at in your home.

    Leo ♌️

    Common characteristics of a Leo: One of the most fun personalities in the zodiac, Leos are enigmatic and engaging people who easily command the presence of an entire room just by walking into it. Leos by nature tend to be well-liked by most and tend to attract likeminded people with their warm personalities. They're a little bit competitive and a little bit self-obsessed...but if you were just as great as they are, wouldn't you be as well?

    Some well-known Leo: Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck, Halle Berry, Jason Momoa,  Kylie Jenner, Anthony Anderson, Angela Bassett, Shawn Mendes, Joe Jonas, Gillian Anderson, and Meghan Markle.

    The Best Crystal For Leo: Citrine

    Bright, golden, and flashy: Citrine makes the perfect partner for our proud lion signs. All of the properties of this stone fall in line with a Leo's personality, which essentially acts as an amplifier of all their wonderful personality traits. For example, it helps to boost self-confidence, happiness, and the joy in a person's life — and while your average Leo might have some of this going on already, not all of them do so this crystal can help to bring them back into balance. Citrine also happens to be a stone of prosperity which is thought to bring wealth and abundance into the life of the owner, and who doesn't want more of that?

    Virgo ♍️

    Common characteristics of a Virgo: Earth sign Virgos are practical, quick-witted, and tend to have an answer for any problem you could ever have. They're probably the best people at trivia you know, often possessing a knowledge of all sorts of academic pursuits. They tend to have a reputation as being a bit judgmental, rigid, or even as "clean freaks" at times, but that's just because they know exactly how they like things done: in the most optimal way possible, of course.

    Some well-known Virgos: Zendaya, Idris Elba, Beyoncé, Keanu Reeves, Melissa McCarthy, Keke Palmer, Jack Black, Shania Twain, Blake Lively, Chris Pine, Bernie Sanders, and Prince Harry.

    The Best Crystal For Virgo: Red Jasper

    Red Jasper is a stone known for grounding yourself and Virgo, an Earth sign, can absolutely make good use of it. Virgos are often viewed as the perfectionists of the zodiac and no doubt can become quite frustrated when things don't go the way they want it to. Red Jasper will help any Virgo to relax and "let go" through  grounding their energy into the earth. These beautiful red rocks are often filled with inclusions of other stones in them and often have cascading lines and valleys that make for a unique pattern in each stone. Overall, Red Jasper is a calming stone that correlates to the root chakra, helping to soothe any overarching fears or concerns about your own wellbeing.

    Libra ♎️

    Common characteristics of a Libra: Friendly and flirty Libra is a social butterfly who loves to be included in group plans — that is, if they didn't organize the plan themselves already. The scales seen in their constellation relate to the balance that they have (or wish they had) but also demonstrates an ability to see all sides of an argument or situation. This allows for great empathy for others, but also a lack of being able to make decisions easily.

    Some well-known Libras: Kim Kardashian, Snoop Dogg, Halsey, Serena Williams, Will Smith, Gwyneth Paltrow, Donald Glover, Hilary Duff, Bruce Springsteen, Doja Cat, Zach Galifianakis, and Anthony Mackie.

    The Best Crystal For Libra: Ametrine

    Libras tend to struggle with indecisiveness in their lives, from small things (like "What movie should I watch on Netflix?") to much larger questions around major life events (like "Do I want to move across the country for this job opportunity?"). To help combat the will-they-or-won't-they constantly going on inside a Libra's head, Ametrine is the crystal to try. This stone is believed to bring clarity to your situation and brings ~balance~ to the user's life. More proof of its balancing nature is that Ametrine itself is actually a blend of Amethyst and Citrine. If stuck on a specific situation, one could pick up a small Ametrine stone to hold in their hand while they meditate or wear it as jewelry to have balance at all times.

    Scorpio ♏️

    Common characteristics of a Scorpio: Dark and brooding (at least on the outside) Scorpio is that mysterious, very aloof person in your life that's somehow effortlessly cool. This water sign has a whole river of emotions just under the surface, but only those closest to them will be allowed to see what's inside. Scorpios are known for having a universal sex appeal (and also for being excellent lovers), but also are known for being quick to shut someone out of their lives forever once they've been crossed.

    Some well-known Scorpios: Joaquin Phoenix, Ciara, Pete Davidson, Willow Smith, Tracee Ellis Ross, Travis Barker, Kris Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Drake, Julia Roberts, Katy Perry, B.D. Wong, and Winona Ryder.

    The Best Crystal For Scorpio: Smoky Quartz

    Remember when I mentioned all of those emotions underneath the surface of your friendly neighborhood water sign Scorpio? To help calm those waters, I'd suggest working with Smoky Quartz. This stone is known for helping to repel and remove negativity from your body, helping you to let go of whatever's troubling you. It's believed that the stone can transmute lower vibrations into ~high vibes,~ which makes it a great stone to wear as jewelry, carry with you, or sleep next to at night. It's also a stone that promotes emotional wellbeing, and is great to meditate with if ever stuck with an issue that's haunting your thoughts.  

    Sagittarius ♐️

    Common characteristics of a Sagittarius: Bright, adventurous, and independent: The Archer is known for taking big risks. These appealing people have big dreams and a big personality that's easy to fall in love with. Highly intellectual, a Sagittarius is never without an opinion on any subject, but is not afraid to listen to a new point of view. They also make hilarious storytellers and can capture the attention of whoever's nearby with their energy and excitement.

    Some well-known Sagittarians: Britney Spears, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Kravitz, Jamie Foxx, Billie Eilish, Miley Cyrus, Ben Stiller, Janelle Monae, Tina Turner, Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Regina Hall, Taylor Swift, and Rita Ora.  

    The Best Crystal For Sagittarius: Lapis Lazuli

    Our Sagittarius friends are worldly, intelligent beings who know just a little bit about everything. Enter Lapis Lazuli, which taps into the mind's eye and can help to break down the walls of what you once knew — and open yourself to new possibilities. A stone that's been associated with royalty since the days of Ancient Egypt, Lapis Lazuli is said to bring truth, compassion, self-awareness and relieve any negative thought patterns that the crystal's owner may have.

    Capricorn ♑️

    Common characteristics of a Capricorn: The most responsible sign in the zodiac may also be the most reliable person in your friend group. Capricorns are incredibly hard workers and can sometimes find it hard to maintain a work/life balance. This Earth sign might be a tough shell to crack when you first meet them, but once you've gained their trust you'll find one of the best friends you could ever ask for.

    Some well-known Capricorns: Timothée Chalamet, Dolly Parton, John Legend, Bradley Cooper, Kate Middleton, Jim Carrey, Finn Wolfhard, Ricky Martin, Dove Cameron, Ryan Seacrest, January Jones, Joshua Basset, and Diane Keaton.

    The Best Crystal For Capricorn: Tanzanite

    We know that Capricorns take their work incredibly seriously, which is why Tanzanite is the perfect stone — it's literally referred to within the crystal community as "the workaholic's stone." It's believed to strengthen your self-control, which for a Capricorn could perhaps translate into signing off work on time for once or helping set better boundaries for themselves. Tanzanite is said to help promote better communication with other people as a blue stone correlating with the throat chakra. It's also been known to help those who are transitioning from one job (or career) to a new one.

    Aquarius ♒️

    Common characteristics of an Aquarius: This air sign is incredibly independent and makes up their own path as they go along. Not one for traditions or abiding by someone else's rules, an Aquarius is rebellious at heart. Always the intellectual, they pursue deep knowledge from a young age and can sometimes be walking encyclopedias. They're not afraid to challenge the norm or try something new. Often considered the "black sheep" of their community, Aquariuses have a love of all things offbeat and outside-the-box.

    Some well-known Aquariuses: Harry Styles, Kerry Washington, Michael B. Jordan, Jennifer Aniston, Ed Sheeran, Meghan Thee Stallion, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shakira, Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys,  Ed Helms, and Guy Fieri.

    The Best Crystal For Aquarius: Clear Quartz

    For our Aquarius friends, they get the mother of all crystals: Clear Quartz. Known as as "the master healer" it's said to amplify whatever you intend it to and works well with other crystals. An Aquarius is generally marching to the beat of their own drum and is always adding a new intellectual pursuit to their journey, which this crystal will help aid them with. It's also believed that Clear Quartz can enhance psychic abilities and help to unlock deep or hidden knowledge, which is pretty much right up their collective alley.

    Pisces ♓️

    Common characteristics of a Pisces: The oldest sign in the zodiac, Pisces are wise beyond their years. And yet, they're also the most fun person at your party who can stay up til the wee hours of the morning without crashing. They're dreamy, charming, extra-romantic — making them great partners in your romantic life. They're also quite considerate people who generally have great taste in music, movies, and the arts, so if you ever need a recommendation for your playlist, you know who to talk to.

    Some well-known Pisceans: Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Olivia Rodrigo, Drew Barrymore, Common, Rashida Jones, Kumail Nanjiani, Millie Bobbie Brown, Daniel Craig, Simone Biles, Adam Levine, Erykah Badu, and Tyler, The Creator.

    The Best Crystal For Pisces: Amethyst

    Pisces are water signs, which means they can have a lot of emotional turmoil at times. Amethyst is able to soothe the mind, body, and soul — making it a great companion for any Pisces. It can help us to be less irritable and enraged so quickly through its calming vibrations. This eye-catching purple stone is a protective stone, helping to ward off bad vibes and to transmute any negativity inside of yourself. It's believed to help people who have trouble sleeping and is a great stone to have by your bedside at night.
