The Seahorse is a type of tropical fish named for its unique head shape and long, curled tail. This animal totem calls for an evaluation of the gender roles one might be occupying. Seahorses are known for their reproductive behavior, in which the male carries the female’s eggs and gives birth. Those connected with the seahorse may wish to question how to best balance their male and female energies. Seahorse people may also want to check if there are opportunities to give their time to someone or something in need.
Like the male seahorse, those who connect with this totem animal should expect a unique journey in the future. Preparation may take the form of creating stability and security in other parts of life.
If you resonate with the Seahorse or have it as your animal totem, see below for stones whose energy can help you connect on a deeper level.
Crystals for Seahorse Totem
Amazonite – Amazonite is a stone of integrity, truth, honor, hope, and trust. It connects to water energy and helps with balancing your energy field, which are both important to the Seahorse as a totem animal.
Shiva Lingam – This is a stone of fertility that also balances male and female energies. Shiva Lingam is excellently aligned with the male seahorse’s reproductive role.
Emerald – Emerald is a stone of love and devotion. It represents the care required of the seahorse father.
Tourmalinated Quartz – This type of quartz is very grounding, making it a useful tool for balancing and self-evaluation.
Carnelian – Male seahorses are known for the vigorous, sometimes aggressive behavior, especially while pregnant. Use carnelian to capture that warrior spirit and connect to the militant history of the seahorse’s namesake, the horse.
