Using an ally, like a gemstone or crystal, is a good idea for this sign, as they are naturally empathetic to nature, and thrive best when in touch with their spirituality.
Aquarius does well with stones that are light blue in color, as they are the water bearer, but can also incorporate red and yellow.
Stones that offer emotional protection and grounding are beneficial, as water and air need stabilizing and warming.
Silver is a good metal for Aquarius, as it aids in blood detoxification and circulation while removing negative energies.
Garnet is a grounding and protective stone that brings fire, aids with melancholy and is a symbol of love and truth. It is a powerful balancer for air and the erratic influences of Uranus.
This intensely purifying (fire) stone is associated with the pomegranate, a symbol of the feminine, and was greatly valued by many ancient tribes in their search for awareness. Garnet is a medieval stone that is…

Aquarius is sometimes referred to as the alien sign of the zodiac and the Aquarius woman wears this label with pride. She is friendly and sociable yet somehow removed as if viewing the world from another realm. Her head is sometimes in the clouds, her inspiration stemming from beyond, she is often considered an enigma. She is a tempest of intellect, independence and innovation, and as a fixed air Sign, she doesn’t like to be told what to do. She follows her intuition as it shifts like the wind.
She is drawn to natural therapies, wind chimes and gemstones that reflect the cosmos. Aquarian astrology stones are imbued with meaning and form the perfect jewels in her otherworldly crown.
The Aquarius woman is the ultimate non-conformist. You will not find her shopping at the local mall; she will pair vintage with handmade and boutique pieces in a style…

Gemstones are a great way to help me relax, gain focus, and ground myself. No better surprise than to find the gemstone you slipped into your pocket as a little good luck charm when your eyes were barely open at six AM, giving you that afternoon boost you need!
Gemstones are special because they each hold specific unique powers that can aid you with your own, likewise specific needs. Sometimes you might be drawn to the beauty of their color, or weight for no particular reason; that’s awesome too! The connection may come later as you spend time familiarizing yourself with your new gems!
When I wear gem jewelry I feel a sense of comfort and protection, a magnetic beauty and confidence. Most of all I love the feeling of first slipping my bracelets onto my wrists and letting the cool tranquility of their weight ground and calm me.

I never thought that it would happen to me. I watched it happen to others and empathized with the urge to just give in to the cold, dark days that make you want to forego your normal routine. While it is natural to rest during the winter months, it can be a challenge for most of us to give in and let go of our busy schedules. It is very healthy and beneficial to change your routine and “play hooky” from your life every once and a while. But you want that rebellion to come from a place of fun and whimsy and not because your current circumstances are depleting your energy. Here are some ideas to help when you feel overwhelmed and tired of it all.
Charge your water with Green Tourmaline. Green Tourmaline has so much fiery, aggressive, masculine energy that it cannot help but revive your spirit. I keep a bottle of water in my refrigerator with a Green Tourmaline bracelet on it. I drink it in the morning and it fuels my energy for the rest of the day.
Change your light bulbs. I know this sounds goofy but I recently ran out of light bulbs and could only find those that simulate Daylight. It is amazing how they have completely changed the energy in my home. Every room feels brighter and lighter and my crystals love them. Just try one and see if it doesn’t make a difference.
Carry and/or wear Tiger Eye. Powerful Tiger Eye gives you courage and strengthens your willpower. Whether you use Brown, Red, or Blue, it can help you trust yourself and that inner voice that will let you know when to keep going and when to stop. Carry all three with you for a day and see how it feels.
Try something new. There is nothing more exciting than doing something different. Maybe you always wanted to try a dance class or learn how to make jewelry. Now is a great time to go for it and many places offer free trials. You will feel happier doing something that you love.
Surround yourself with Clear Quartz. Clear Quartz chases away any negative energy, increases the positive vibrations and draws in more light. It will brighten everything, including your mood and outlook.
*If you believe that you may be depressed, please seek medical counsel. Crystals are for healing and should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care. Please consult your healthcare specialist for your particular needs.
If you are anything like me, you probably have friends, family and associates who just don’t “get” crystals. Maybe they appreciate their decorative appeal and think of them as cool knick-knacks. It is even more likely that they wear them as jewelry. They can see their obvious qualities but cannot understand how a crystal can provide healing and guidance. One of my favorite things about crystals is that you don’t have to understand how they work…you don’t even have to believe that they will work…all that you need to do is be around them and everyone benefits. That is why I often give crystals as gifts – even to the skeptics (and I know plenty!) and I have found that the gifts are often well received and have surprising results. I haven’t brought any of those skeptics over to my side…but I have found that they do use their crystals when they need them – even if they don’t realize it. So if you are planning on ‘gifting” a crystal this holiday season, here are some tips to help you choose the ones that will work the best.
What kind of healing do you want to gift?
If you are considering getting someone a crystal it is probably because you have an idea of how it could benefit them. Maybe your boss is always on the go and you want to give them a crystal that would complement their fiery personality like a Black Obsidian or Red Jasper. If they seem overwhelmed you might consider a Chrysocolla or Selenite to relieve their stress and open their mind to other possibilities. Does someone close to you have a physical ailment that would benefit from crystal healing? You can review the Issues and Ailments Guide to find the crystal that will help alleviate their symptoms. Someone with muscular issues would benefit from a Hematite or Emerald. It is cold and flu season, so an Aquamarine or Fluorite could help keep them healthy.
Which crystal reminds you of the recipient?
I am a firm believer that crystals often choose us and tend to come into our lives when we need them the most. Likewise, when you are thinking about someone a crystal might pop into your mind or jump out at you online or in a store. Let’s say that you have a friend who is having some romantic issues and you want to get her a crystal. Labradorite may not be associated with that particular issue or for working on the Heart Chakra, but still it feels like the one that will help her the most. Do not get caught up in pre-conceived ideas about the “right” crystal. Always follow your instinct and select the crystal that you feel belongs with that person.
What if you just cannot decide on the “right” crystal?
When in doubt just keep it simple. You can never go wrong with universal crystals like Clear Quartz, Amethyst, and Rose Quartz. If those don’t feel right consider the recipient’s favorite color or what they wear the most. If someone loves the color blue then go with Lapis Lazuli. If they always wear orange try Carnelian. They will notice that you see what makes them happy and that makes the gift personal and memorable.
How will they use the crystal?
You want to think about how your recipient will use your gift since not everyone walks around with bags of crystals on them. I know…it is hard for us to believe but it is true! Jewelry is an obvious solution as long as the recipient actually enjoys wearing jewelry. Bracelets, pendants and necklaces have a universal appeal and you don’t have to worry about sizing, etc. If your recipient isn’t a jewelry person, but you think they’d benefit from carrying the crystal with them, then perhaps try a keychain. That’s something that everyone will use. If you are giving small tumbled or natural crystals you can present them in a cloth bag with a personalized card that suggests they carry this in their bag, backpack or briefcase. If you will be gifting a larger crystal to be placed in a room then choose a shape that will resonate with your recipient. Spheres, pyramids and points are always interesting and bring wonderful energy to the space.
The most important tip of all is to always follow your heart and enjoy giving as much as you enjoy receiving!
Holidays are supposed to be joyful and celebratory events, and yet many times the preparation – whether hosting a party or travelling to someone else’s home – leaves us exhausted and wishing we could just forget about all of it, sleep through it and wake up when it is all over. If you’ve ever had a thought like this – then this article is for you!
Crystals help us on many levels through physical laws of resonance, where their vibratory frequency affects the frequencies of our bodies in specific ways. In this article I will suggest a few that assist specifically with issues related to stress around the holidays. So here are the tips and tricks you can use to sail through the holiday season with a smile on your face:
Take your Citrine when you go shopping to find what you need at a price you can easily afford. Citrine works to synchronistically bring you to the right place at the right time so you can be done quickly and effortlessly.
Lithium Quartz is wonderful when you need to take a break from everything to distress and relax, even if it is just for a few minutes behind closed doors.
Hold or wear Fluorite for focus and mental clarity when you make your lists and are getting organized. Fluorite is excellent when you find yourself procrastinating and putting off your necessary tasks. Wearing it during shopping expeditions and holiday travel may also help you stay healthy in a crowded environment, since it strengthens the immune system.
Carnelian is a perfect crystal to hold when you feel unmotivated. It renews excitement, spurs creativity, and supports analytical thinking, so that you are not bogged down by details when planning a party, but rather inspired by your creative vision and anticipation of the joyful event.
Peach Agate may assist when you need to go to a party you are not looking forward to, for whatever reason. It would help you enjoy yourself no matter what the circumstances by attracting positive energy to you.
However, do carry Black Tourmaline with you, since the stress level of many people can be high during this time, and you want to make sure you are grounded and protected so that possible negative energy of others has no chance of affecting you.
Meditate with Lepidolite before going to bed for restful sleep. Write down all of what still needs to be done – your thoughts and your ideas for the rest of the holiday week – on a piece of paper and let your mind relax.
Hold Seraphinite when you feel you need a little extra help from the Divine to accomplish all that you want. A heartfelt gratitude for all that you do have and have been able to do is an important step on the road towards accomplishing more.
If you are looking for gifts – a set of scented candles, a pendant, bracelet, or a necklace perhaps – you know where to check, right? If you are so overwhelmed at this point that you can’t think straight, here is a subtle hint: www.healingcrystals.com.
Finally, you want your home to sparkle, and be filled with a beautiful energy that reminds you of the meaning of the holidays. Place Amethyst and Citrine Druzes throughout your home to bring in the energy of peace, spirituality, celebration, and abundance.
Hope these ideas serve to make your holiday season sparkly and happy!
While much rarer than its bluer counterpart, White Turquoise and its blue/green sister have very similar energetic properties. This gemstone is a most efficient healer, providing solace for the spirit and well-being of the body. It is a protective stone and has been used for amulets for many years. White Turquoise promotes spiritual attunement and enhances communication with the physical and spiritual worlds. Placed on the third eye, it enhances intuition and meditation. On the throat chakra, it releases old vows, inhibitions & prohibitions, and allows the soul to express itself once more. This gemstone explores past lives and shows how the creation of your “fate” is ongoing and depends on what you do at each moment.
Turquoise is a purification stone. It dispels negative energy and clears electromagnetic smog (a subtle but detectable electromagnetic field given off by electrical power lines, computers, televisions, cell phones). It balances and aligns all the…
