Since ancient times, crystals have been used by different cultures to improve the well-being and elevate people’s lives. They are pieces of natural origin created by our mother Earth.
Crystals are one of the many tools used by humans to raise or manage vital energy. These stones absorb and transmit energy easily, so it is key to perform regular cleansings.
You can choose a crystal for a particular purpose, for example, to bring calm and peace, nurture courage, or connect with self-love. Or, you can choose a crystal that has an affinity with the zodiac sign you want to empower in your birth chart.
In this article we propose some suggestions of crystals according to your zodiac sign. It is important to note that you do not have to look only at your sun sign (or what we commonly know as horoscope). You can choose one crystal or another depending on your Ascendant sign, your Moon, your Mars, your Jupiter, etc… depending on the part of your birth chart you want to encourage or connect with.
Además, debes saber que existen varios cristales para cada signo. A continuación, te dejamos una propuesta:
