Crystals for the Libra
Amazing adept at making people smile, there is no doubting that Libra is one of the most compelling signs of the zodiac. The typical Libra’s captivating charm and good-natured personality makes them the friend everyone wishes they had. But there is so much more to a Libra than may initially meet the eye.
Represented by the Scale, Libras are known for craving balance, but they're also super flirty and social, and they revel in a touch of drama. And as a true lover and promoter of harmony, the typical Libra is a natural-born communicator. Our Libras are graceful and magnanimous, but never lack in spunk and while the Libran is good at dealing with people and has the patience to put up with a lot, our balanced buddies have oodles of confidence and know when enough is enough. Libra gets easily irritated when they don’t feel appreciated, nothing upsets them more.
Witty, charming and intelligent, the peaceful Libran enjoys a calm and harmonious existence, but won’t back down from a fight if you mess with them and when it comes to relationships, Librans can be extremely jealous creatures. Never underestimated how much your Libran mate is paying attention. They see and feel it all. You can trust that Libra love is genuine, they may be so indecisive that you can lose your mind trying to live up to their expectations, but when it comes to the really important things they won’t hesitate to lay it all on the line.
So, what is the best crystal for a Libra?
In today’s world, trusting your instincts is more important than ever and Sodalite is the bold and heady catalyst to get you back in touch with your sixth sense. Sodalite is a stone of truth and brings this to all communications, it can help end arguments, it is particularly useful in promoting honesty in emotions and love, it increases intelligence, knowledge and learning, and can unite the logical with the spiritual. To enhance the Libra's innate diplomatic, peacemaking powers, Sodalite will help you communicate with wisdom and authenticity, and smoothly guide you toward solid decisions.
This dazzling blue gem helps balance the energies within, which is why it resonates so strongly with our balanced Libran buddies. Lapis lazuli encourages Libras to centre themselves and to never tip their scales (which is, um, easy to do in life). And if emotional storms are blocking your inner rays of sunshine, call on the Lapis Lazuli crystal properties and channel the soothing vibrations of its many shades of sapphire blue, the colour of self-expression and awareness, the colour of the ocean, the sky, and the heavens.
With an aesthetic as bold and powerful as its healing properties, the Tiger’s Eye crystal helps balance (there’s that word again!) toxic emotions by keeping the mind uber focussed on your true desires. Tiger's Eye is protective while keeping you thoroughly grounded. It enhances integrity, willpower, self-confidence and practicality and can help the indecisive Libran see clearly and without illusion through the jungle of your emotions. A Tiger’s Eye crystal can give you the strength to stop dreaming and the courage to start living. With the Tiger's Eye crystal as a (literal) touchstone, it’s time to harness the strength of a Bengal tiger and take on the world with a mighty roar.
For even more security in your decision making, labradorite can help clear and protect your entire aura. The biggest hurdle to your spiritual growth is probably your own hypercritical tendencies. Labradorite can help you illuminate a sense of childlike wonder and focus entirely on protecting the magic that is purely you and propel you increased intuition, psychic development and esoteric wisdom.
Citrine is a stone as bright as its energy. It emanates more positivity and joy than a box full of puppies. Citrine sparks Libra’s natural tendency for positivity and joy. It balances their emotions and removes some of their sensitivity to criticism. The November birthstone’s properties of wealth and abundance are some of its most well-known. So, if it’s dollar dollar bills you’re coveting, this is the stone to aid in the manifestation, earning Citrine its other nickname, the “Merchant’s Stone”. Citrine also promotes generosity, so the prosperity and success can be shared.
Remember – this is a killer place to start, but while Astrology is there to teach you about yourself, and crystal healing can help enhance your natural gifts and talents – these hella magickal practices are intensely personal and you may find there is more than one (or in this case four) stones or crystals that can represent and empower your astrological sign.
Keep your mind open as you explore which other crystals and stones symbolise the charm and crafty energy of Libra for you. You might be blown away at how different stones can characterise different quirks of people born under this zodiac sign, bringing out different strengths in the endlessly complex Libra.
