Your zodiac sign in astrology is also known as your sun sign.
Depending on what day/month you were born, you’re assigned a zodiac/star sign. Which in astrological terms is actually your sun sign.
The sky is divided into 12 sections (constellations) and this is how the zodiac sign was born – 1 constellation, 1 zodiac sign.
The day you were born indicates which constellation you were born under, which repeats every 12 months.
For each zodiac sign, there are corresponding crystals that as a zodiac sign you may feel connected or drawn to.
Think of it as connecting the cosmic world (the constellation under which you were born) and the Earthly world (crystals are minerals born in the ground here on Earth).
Sometimes we may feel like we don’t belong on this planet, or like our soul was born far away, in the cosmos and we’re actually just floating around here a little bit lost and in need of guidance.
This is where crystals corresponding with your zodiac sign can help you.
Certain crystals and gemstones will be aligned with your sun sign, and once you know your sun sign, that’s half the battle 😉
I’ve listed every crystal for each zodiac (sun sign) further below.
Astrology is a fascinating topic! If you’d like to learn more, here’s a magickal astrology book that gives you a good starting point.
What actually is a constellation and how is a zodiac sign calculated?
The Zodiac is a circle of stars that the sun moves through. Essentially, the star constellation (in a circle) is around the sun, outside of the Earth’s orbit. On Earth, if we were to look through the sun, the constellation on the other side, is the zodiac sign under which you were born.
Ancient astrologers divided the sky into 12 sections (constellations) and because each constellation looked like a certain object (Scorpio looks like a Scorpion) they gave each constellation a name.
And this is how each zodiac sign was born.
The connection between your sun sign and corresponding crystal, can create a synchronised flow of energy. It can help you feel more at home, at ease and grounded.
With a corresponding crystal, you can manifest your dreams, raise your vibrations if feeling low and even wear as a necklace or ring, every day as a grounding reminder.
Each zodiac sign is different, with key personality traits that loosely indicate who we are, how we behave, react and act.
I use the term loosely as your zodiac sign doesn’t define you completely – there are so many factors that contribute to who you are, including your parent, upbringing, genes, traumas/experiences.
Based on the sign and our personality traits that come with it, the corresponding healing crystals, can bring the best out of us, enhancing our qualities rather than revealing the dark side.
For example – signs with a fiery, impulsive nature (mainly fire signs) can get angry and temperamental, but these can also be positive qualities, by being driven, determined and passionate.
Crystals can help us polish our qualities, turn them into positive ones or even strengths.
They can get us out of our shadows and the dark personality traits, making us feel better and turning our traits to drive success and strengths.
Each zodiac sign has a corresponding element, ruling planet and crystals.
Crystals are magickal, sparkly tools that help us feel more at home on this planet earth.
Their energy vibrations and frequencies, correspond with our own energy. As we’re unique individuals, the same as crystals, you’ll respond to certain crystals’ energy, better than others.
That’s why as a zodiac, the crystals are matched based on your constellation and energy at the time of the year you were born.

What Zodiac Sign is Amethyst?
If you’re a Pisces, Aries or Sagittarius, one of your zodiac gemstones / crystals is an amethyst.
A zodiac gemstone is different to your birthstone.
You heard about birthstones – a crystal for the month you were born in.
Birthstone vs Zodiac Stone? Does your birthstone resonate with you?
My birthstone for example is a Ruby, I’m a Leo born in July, yet my birthstone really doesn’t resonate with me.
Perhaps it’s the colour (never been a massive fan of red) or maybe I just haven’t grown into my birthstone yet.
Either way, your birthstone which is determined by the month you were born in, is different from your zodiac or astral stone (crystal).
Your zodiac stone/crystal, is linked to your zodiac sign. As zodiac signs overlap in month, where Leo for example covers July and August, which means 2 Leos could have 2 different birthstones based on whichever month they were born in.
By having the astral/zodiac crystals, it strengthens your qualities related to your zodiac sign by wearing, holding, or carrying your stone.
It also amplifies your fortune in life, the vibrations of the constellation and increases your sign’s influence on your personality and character.
Each zodiac sign has a few crystals listed, unlike with the birthstone where you just have one. If there are a few crystals for your zodiac sign, which crystal should you choose?
This may need some experimenting with a few crystals first, before you find the one that really fits and resonates with your zodiac sign and astral energy.
Although as a Leo for example, you’re born under one constellation, there are still many different personalities to each zodiac sign.
One Leo could be fiery and aggressive, while another could be really passionate and eager to do everything.
What’s your zodiac sign? And do you know another person of the same zodiac sign?
How different are they to you? What are the key differences?
This should tell you how each personality and zodiac sign, isn’t necessarily limited to one type of person. Which is why one birthstone for every month isn’t necessarily correct for each person either.
This is why you need to experiment – see which astral/zodiac stones are yours, and try wearing, holding and meditating with them and see what differences you notice or how they make you feel and where you feel the deepest connection.
If you feel nothing, then this stone just doesn’t fit with your personality.
