Steer Clear Of These Crystals If You're A Taurus

Although Crystals have been used for many years for a number of reasons, the stones seem to be more popular than ever. According to Mind Body Green, there are so many different ways that people could use crystals in their everyday lives. The stones can be used while practicing yoga to help create a peaceful place and mindset.

They can also be used during meditation. The outlet suggests adding crystals to an altar if you have one or creating a crystal grid to help amplify their energy and power. Some people choose to carry crystals with them and wear them as jewelry, use them as keychains, or simply keep them in their pocket or purse. The stones can also be placed on your body if you're hoping that they'll have a healing effect.

"Crystal healing is a term that applies to a certain type of therapy which involves placing gemstones on your body or in nearby places to help draw out negative energy," Devi Brown, founder of Karma Bliss, tells ELLE. "Crystals have existed on earth for millions of years. They're a tool which work with your energy field to absorb, focus and direct energies," Brown added.

Of course, different crystals can have a different impact on certain people and will pair well with their personality traits. For those born under the sign of Taurus, there are specific crystals that they may want to add to their collection, and some to steer clear of.

Taurus should think twice before using Moonstone, Pearl, and Carnelian

If you're a Taurus (born between April 20 and May 20), there are so many great options when it comes to crystals. You're personality traits pair well with stones like rose quartz, which is connected to love and relationships, per Sarah Scoop. Amethyst is another great stone for Taurus to use because it helps with stress and anxiety and can have a peaceful impact on the brain, which could also help if you struggle with mental illness issues. Moonstone and pearl are also said to work well with Taurus.

However, if you're using these crystals there are some things you should know. Pairing the rose quartz with moonstone or pearl isn't suggested. In Hindi lore, the stones should be kept far away from each other, so be sure to choose which one works best for you and avoid the others, per Beadnova.

Meanwhile, if you're using amethyst in your spiritual practice, it may be a safe option to forget about also using carnelian, as the two stones are said to conflict (via Sonoma Sun). Carnelian is known for boosting energy while amethyst is supposed to calm energy. Using the two together could create chaos and confusion.

Taurus should avoid Clear Quartz, Smoky Quartz, and Amazonite

According to Divine Twist, Taurus may gravitate toward crystals such as malachite, which is said to get rid of negative energy and feelings of fear and sadness. The earth sign may also benefit from using tiger's eye. The stone is said to bring about abundance in wealth, intelligence, and bravery. It also helps combat negative energy and can be used to promote clarity and balance. Lapis lazuli is another great crystal for Taurus as it's known to enhance self-awareness and create positivity in your social life.

Of course, when using these stones there are risks if you don't pair them correctly. Tiger's eye is said to be a bad pairing for smoky quartz (via Divine Twist). These two stones conflict as one will attempt to harness the energy and change it into something useful and the other will try to block the same energy. Keeping these two separate will likely be in your best interest if you're a Taurus. When using tiger's eye, Taurus should also avoid amazonite, which works against the crystals relaxing vibes and cause disruption in sleep.

If using malachite, Taurus will want to avoid using clear 1uartz, as it's not a good match. Although malachite can help get rid of negativity, pairing it with clear quartz may end up amplifying the negative energy, which is something you don't want, per Hobbyist Geek.

It seems that Taurus has plenty of crystals to choose from that will work well with their personality, and should be able to find the perfect ones to use in their spiritual journey.
