Your Zodiac Element and Crystals

The twelve zodiac signs are divided into four elements: fire, earth, air, and water. These groupings reflect the common temperament and motivations behind these signs. Crystals can promote more positive expressions of the specific zodiac signs by stimulating inner balance and growth.


The signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius fall within the fire element. People with these zodiac signs in their natal chart are passionate and energetic. These individuals thrive off of activities that feed their lust for life and are constantly searching for new experiences that spark their curiosity. These individuals tend to be the best at raising others up, as they want others to shine just as brightly as they do. Similar to fire, these natives can be a bit hotheaded, and even "burn" others through their words that cut deep, revealing a truth not everyone is ready to face about themselves. Crystals that would help bring out the more positive qualities of this elemental group would be Citrine, Carnelian, and Red Jasper.


The earth signs of the zodiac wheel consist of Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. Natives of this elemental group are grounded and practical, when things go astray, they rarely lose their cool. Stability is a must for them, they desire a certain level of comfort and are willing to work hard to achieve or maintain it. Like the earth itself, these people tend to nourish their loved ones, providing support and advice in tumultuous times. However, they can also be somewhat resistant to change and stubborn in some cases, refusing to leave situations that may not serve their higher purpose. Aventurine, Peridot, and Tourmaline are useful crystals for these signs to activate their full potential.


Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are classified as the air element of the zodiac wheel. Individuals that have these zodiac signs are social and intellectual thrill seekers. Similar to how we speak using our breath or "air" to communicate, these individuals love to pick people's brains with unique topics and questions that often prompt deeper thinking. These natives have refreshing perspectives about life and they feel like a breath of fresh air. They can help others see the bigger picture without getting caught up in the little details and complications. Those with air signs in their chart can come off as emotionally detached, they need to be careful of over-rationalizing their emotions to the point of invalidating them. Aquamarine, Moonstone, and Clear Quartz are ideal crystals for these air elementals to tap into their inner power.


Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces are the water signs of the zodiac. Those who possess these signs in their natal chart are compassionate and sensitive. These individuals are deep like the ocean, they are not afraid of their feelings, and in fact, they dive head first into them. Natives of this elemental group value their emotional expression and help others navigate complex emotions through active listening and providing a shoulder to cry on when needed. It is necessary that water signs have a good outlet for these emotions to flow into, as they can have a tendency to ruminate in their more negative feelings and as a result, could project their mood into their external environment. Crystals like Lapis Lazuli, Sodalite, and Blue Lace Agate are great for water signs to balance their energies.
