Specific stones have been found to resonate well with the energies of different times of the year. We have created a list of stones commonly associated with each of the zodiac signs, though this is not a definitive or complete record. Everyone operates under different disciplines and inhabits various levels of consciousness, meaning that certain stones may be more or less effective for each individual.
General Guidelines for Selecting a Stone
1. Select a stone by your birth date from the selection listed below. To reiterate: These stones are suggestions based on what is commonly associated with each zodiac sign, and different disciplines or cultures may suggest other stones.
2. Choose a stone for a specific quality you are seeking to foster. You can get help here by visiting our Gemstone Dictionary or typing in the quality you are seeking in our Crystal Life website search bar and seeing what stones and jewelry we currently have in stock.
3. Go with your intuition. If you know a bit about stones, close your eyes, center yourself and ask what stone would be best for the purpose you are seeking to fulfill. Stones have a tendency to stand out or “shine” if they are connecting with you. Spirit guides can also be useful for helping you recognize what you need.
