Treasures Tailored to Your Star Sign

I’m often asked, “Which crystal should I choose?” and for me, it’s always been very intuitive based on what I’m feeling, what I’m drawn to and the properties that resonate with me.

I like to carefully select crystals that attune to my energy, align with my chakras and work with the elements: Earth, Fire, Water and Air. So, I want to share some of the crystals that link to the elements and therefore your star sign.

I’m sure we all know our star sign, but by star sign, I’m referring to your sun sign. This is the constellation that the sun was in at the time you were born and is believed to speak most to your core identity.

While I'm not an astrologer, I’ve done a lot of research into the healing energy of crystals, and I want to share some of the insights I’ve learnt. Ultimately, your choices should be guided by what feels intuitive and personal to you.

I hope you find this guide useful.

With love,

Amy
