Leo (July 23 – August 22) is the fifth sign of the zodiac, represented by the Lion. It is a Fixed Fire sign ruled by the Sun. Those born under this sign are typically warm, charismatic, hard-working personalities. They are driven towards leadership and thrive on being in charge; no one works being the “center of attention” better than the Lion. However, these big personalities must avoid being too controlling, as they may come off as vain or egotistical. In the end, these proud folk can be depended on as standout defenders and leaders among the zodiac.
We recommend these crystals for those born under Leo, as well as to all people during this sign’s dates:
Crystals for Leo
Carnelian – Carnelian is considered a warrior stone and plays well into Leo’s boundless energy. At the same time, this stone promotes gratefulness and keeps the Lion humble.
Diamond – This crystal promotes commitment, ingenuity, faith, and endurance, strengthening Leo’s innate leadership and bringing out the best of their abilities.
Amber – Gentle and calming, Amber can help reign in a Leo when their high energy may start to make them look like a “show off”.
Topaz – Topaz promotes charisma and confidence while keeping egos in check. This makes it a perfect stone for Leos searching for their spotlight.
Ruby – This red gemstone helps Lions open their hearts and express their passions in a genuine, meaningful way. It is also protective and can be used to ward off negativity that would otherwise shake a Leo’s confidence.
Garnet – A stone of vigor and passion, Garnet can help a Leo let go of old ideas that no longer serve them or their role, allowing them to be more adaptable.
