The One Crystal You Need To Get If You're A Cancer

Cancer signs are some of the most caring, sensitive members of the zodiac, filling in their free time with naps on the couch with a loved one, cooking a shareable meal, or crafting DIY knitwear for pals. If you're a cozy-loving, warmhearted Cancer, crystals might be good additions to your home. As gemstone ritual author Kristin Petrovich told Fab Fit Fun, "When you think about the fact that stones originate deep within the Earth's crust and that we have a natural harmony with the Earth, [their healing properties begin] to make sense." Plus, Cancer signs will welcome all the extra good vibes crystals can bring into their home, reinforcing balance and calm. 

Loving and emotional, Cancers are known for their loyalty and relaxed nature as water signs (via Astrology Zodiac Signs). Crystals can emphasize a Cancer sign's best qualities, such as the tender loving care they put into everything, while making them more open to the outside world and giving them a more positive mindset. In fact, Heather Askinosie of Energy Muse told Oprah Magazine that crystals "help you achieve a more peaceful mind and a revitalized physical state of being." Keveney Avila added that "humans have used stones for healing and energetic purposes for thousands of years." 

In short, crystals and gemstones are part of an age-old tradition that can definitely prove useful. And while each kind of crystal has a different frequency, there are a few in particular that will work best with Cancers' innately-emotional nature.

Most powerful crystals for Cancer signs

To balance out all of a Cancer sign's energetic frequencies, Fab Fit Fun recommends a few crystals in particular that will align their slight moodiness, plus protect their sensitive energy. After all, as the outlet reminds us, Cancers are "some of the most intuitive signs that can immediately sense vibes." As in, reading everyone's energy the minute they enter a room, which is probably the reason most Cancers prefer movie nights in!

Crystal healer Mazz Hanna told the outlet that Cancers are "sensitive on all levels, loyal in all relationships, and highly emotional," meaning they need gemstones that "enhance their psychic abilities" and guard them. So what crystals work best for homey, empathetic Cancer signs? 

According to Hanna, selenite will work great for Cancers, as the crystal is known to get rid of negativity. In fact, as Earth Crystals describes, selenite has the ability to cleanse and purify its surroundings, and clear negative energy. Cancer signs might just breathe a sigh of relief when having selenite with them, and should consider wearing a selenite necklace everywhere they go.

Other crystals that work great for Cancers? Labradorite is known to enhance psychic intuition, highlighting Cancer sign's innate ability to see through people. This might come in handy, making the sign's "superpower" a bit more intense. Red jasper is another crystal that will work great for this sign, as Hanna explains it can "enhance emotional stamina," offering strength to sentimental Cancers.
