What Are Astral Stones and How to Find Yours

Your astrological sign indicates more about you then just your birthday – and so does your astral stone. Astral stones are the crystals and gemstones that correspond to the constellation under which you were born. They represent the unity of the universe and serve as a link between the earth and the stars. Just as you have a unique essential oil, you also have a unique astral stone that complements your astrological sign.

Your astral stone is more than just a symbol, however – It is a physical object that carries the harmony of all things throughout it. According to ancient philosophers, wearing, holding, or carrying your stone strengthens your fortune in life as it amplifies the vibrations of the constellation and bolsters zodiac influence. In other words, it is a conduit for the heavens on earth.

However, you’ll notice that each zodiac sign has multiple astral stones listed. While your zodiac sign can tell you the guiding core principles of your being – there are still a wide range of personalities born under each constellation. Therefore, astral stones also cover a wide range of traits within each zodiac sign. It is up to you to discover the astral stone to which you feel the deepest connection.

Astral stones vary from culture to culture and religion-to-religion – There is no central authority that dictates which stones belong to which months. The following is your guide to the most widely accepted connections.
