The perfect stone for your star sign
Words and imagery: Juliette Thornbury // @luminosity_crystals
We’ve got crystals all over our houses but when it comes to choosing one to wear, we get totally overwhelmed. That’s why we asked Juliette Thornbury, author of The Crystal Fix and founder of Luminosity Crystals to share her expert advice on finding the right rock. Here’s what she had to say…
Crystals have been worn in jewellery for thousands of years, for both their beauty and healing properties. Wearing a crystal is a powerful way to benefit from the stone’s energy, especially when using it for a particular purpose. Having a crystal in your energy field for a long period of time will increase its ability to support your intentions and can help you to manifest whatever you need in your life.
CHOOSING A CRYSTAL
Use your intuition when picking a stone to wear. Often, you will find that the one you select carries the energy that you need most at that time. If you are looking to attract love into your life, for example, wear a rose quartz necklace to invite this energy in. Wearing a ring or necklace with citrine will help you to attract abundance and success into your life.
WHERE TO WEAR
To increase the energy of the stone, try wearing it over the related chakra to boost its healing effects. For example, if you are looking to strengthen communication skills, wear an aquamarine necklace over the throat chakra.
Twelve gemstones have come to be recognised as representing specific birth dates and are a popular way of choosing a crystal for jewellery. The stones are affiliated with a specific month of the year, and also with one of the zodiac symbols. You may therefore find that two different stones both relate to your birthday; choose the one that resonates with you the most.
