Cancers, born between June 21 and July 22, are the most emotionally sensitive of all the zodiac signs. Ruled by the intuitive and ever-changing moon, Cancers feel emotions deeply yet can also seem detached at times. Their tender hearts and nurturing souls make them natural caregivers but also render them susceptible to mood swings and bouts of fear or sadness.
Luckily, healing crystals can help balance the emotional nature of Cancers and stabilize their mood. The right stones can boost confidence, rekindle passion and transform negative thoughts. Here are 5 crystals to harness the positive Cancer energies this month:
Red Jasper: This root chakra stone brings much needed stability and grounding for flighty Cancers. Red jasper helps Cancers cultivate emotional resilience by connecting them with the steadfast energies of the Earth. Its stability allows Cancers to balance their instincts for nurturing others with the crucial self-care they often neglect. Meditate with red jasper when feeling scattered or unclear, and carry it while spending time in nature for instant clarity and stability.
Rose Quartz: The stone of unconditional love, rose quartz nurtures Cancer’s tender heart and forgiving spirit. As a magnifier of the heart chakra, it teaches Cancers patience and acceptance, challenging traits for their sensitive souls. Holding or wearing rose quartz helps release hurt feelings and embrace self-love, the foundation for all other love. Place a piece on your heart center and visualize pink light filling your being to instantly alleviate low moods.
