Steer Clear Of These Crystals If You're A Capricorn

As the last earth sign of the zodiac, Capricorns are characterized as resilient, hardworking, practical, ambitious, and a bit cutthroat. Excellent with finances and extremely goal-oriented, think of this sign as the grown-up of the zodiac (via Allure). 

They don't let emotion cloud their plan of action and may struggle with perfectionism at times. Ruled by the planet Saturn and symbolized by the sea goat, Capricorns are fixers and often understand better than anyone that it's lonely at the top.

Capricorns may need to utilize self-care to avoid carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders (via Co-Star). These earth signs could benefit from crystals, whether by meditating with them or tapping into the stones' healing powers, if you believe in all that. Even just gazing into the depths of a stunning stone and thinking about how it's millions of years old can be an awe-inspiring experience.

However, if you're a Capricorn — born between Dec. 21 and Jan. 20 — it might be wise to steer clear of these crystals altogether.

Avoid these crystals if you're a Capricorn

According to The Peach Box, the powerful energy of tiger's eye is great for some zodiac signs, providing balance and luck, but Capricorn is not one of them. This semi-precious stone is ruled by the sun and by Mars — and not all planets play nicely with these two. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which does not exist in harmony with the sun and Mars. So, wearing a tiger's eye pendant or ring can actually harm your work life and disrupt your sleep cycle if you're a Capricorn.

A precious stone to be avoided by Capricorns is emerald. The beautiful green gem, while stunning, may push Capricorns even deeper into their habit of self-isolation, and that's not something these sea goats need more of (via Jewels for Women).

On the bright side, the list of crystals suitable for these earth signs is longer than those to avoid, and they could potentially provide much-needed peace and balance.

The best crystals for Capricorns

To protect their energy, Capricorns should embrace sodalite, obsidian, and amethyst crystals (via Cosmopolitan). If you tend to be a worrywart, the blue hue of sodalite – dreamily referred to as "the poet's stone" – will bring you calm and inner peace.

Obsidian is a powerful volcanic glass that's well-known for its fierce protective energy. Some say it's the guardian angel of the crystal realm, and you'd be wise to carry one in your pocket when leaving the house.

Amethyst is a pretty recognizable crystal, with stunning color that ranges from light lavender to deep purple. It's considered a stone of the spiritual, symbolizing zen-like practices like mediation and embodying the energy of the dream world. If you're a Capricorn, try wearing amethyst to tap into your spiritual side and bring some lightness to your life. Bonus: It's typically pretty affordable.
