crystal chakras colors 2The Universe is coded in symbols and archetypes, and there are infinite ways of Decoding The All. Since everything is connected, we can recognize commonalities among different practices, intuitive methods, healing modalities and schools of thought. From astrology to numerology to energy work to card divination, to crystal healing–these are all valid tools we can use to bring us forward to ourselves.

Just as crystals work well with particular chakra energy centers, each zodiac sign and house pertains to a particular chakra and crystal as well. The following is a handy reference guide to the Zodiac signs, the Natal Chart Houses, the astrological keywords, the corresponding crystals, and the chakra related to that area of life.

How to use this Guide:

Natal Energy: If you were born under the sign of Gemini, for example, you can use this guide to know which stones can benefit your astrological energy. You can also use it to develop and bring awareness to your Rising and Moon signs, or any other pertinent sign in your zodiac.

Transits: If you are experiencing a certain transit through a certain sign, you can work with the crystals and chakras that correspond. For example, for the Scorpio Full Moon you can focus on the Scorpio keywords, pay attention to how the light and dark sides are playing out in your life, and work with the corresponding crystals and chakras to bring energetic balance to that energy.

Chakra Balancing: If you are feeling like you need to ignite your passion, work on your abundance mentality, and recognize your power and worth, you may need to focus on your Sacral Chakra. The Sacral is the 2nd Chakra and corresponds with Taurus, the 2nd sign of the zodiac. The crystals there can be of assistance.
