It’s fun to turn to heaven and earth for guidance and support. That’s what we do when we learn about our zodiac signs (heaven) and when we use crystals (earth) to improve our lives. Our sun signs can tell a lot about us, and crystals can help us play up and better manage certain aspects about our sun-sign-nature.

When we wear, carry, or spend time with stones that correspond with the energies of our zodiac signs, we strengthen those energies and are able to access and express them more vividly in our lives. They can help us enhance our strengths and improve our weaknesses.

Here’s a short explanation of each zodiac sign and the crystals most suited for each one.
