This latest boom isn’t the first moment astrology’s had and it won’t be the last. Living life by the movements of the galaxy has been around in one form or another for thousands of years.
Maybe it is just because we're all desperately scrambling for something to believe in, but isn’t that a good thing? The fact that we’re turning to the stars for guidance and to the earth for healing shows that we’re trying to connect with the world in a way that has maybe been lacking in the modern-day soul crush of living life tethered to our devices and desk chairs.
Perhaps putting down the prescriptions, switching off the omnipresent iPhone and tuning into the elements around us will help us to spiritually evolve and grow into the best versions of ourselves.
And aligning your horoscope with some modern-day-witchy crystal healing? Well, that just takes the cake (or you know, the vegan kale chia smoothie if that’s your jam).
So what’s the best way to combine the powers of these two practices?
While different crystals have different properties, some crystals are especially attuned to certain astrological signs.
Crystals for the Sagittarius
Like the Scorpio, a Sagittarius can be a little blunt, but there’s little mystery in their versatility, flexibility and no-nonsense approach to life. The ever-curious archer is always on a quest for something just over the horizon. When you’re a Sagittarius, home is where the adventure is.
So what is the best crystal for a Sagittarius?
For the daring Sagittarius, Dendritic Agate can help keep their wanderlust alive. Dendritic Agate’s warm protective properties encourage security and self-confidence and its unique connection to Earth’s energy will ground you in your free-spirited intuition.
Try placing your Dendritic Agate on your bookshelf to motivate and bring out your adventurous side as you flip through your worn Lonely Planets or wear it as a constant reminder that you’re always working towards your next quest.
A powerful catalyst for manifestation, your Covellite crystal is both grounding and energising. The independent and free-spirited Sagittarius needs grounding energy to help you put more thought into your actions to make sure you are journeying in the right direction. As the Sagittarius constantly searches for new adventure trains to ride, Covellite is a potent ally to change.
Sagittarius individuals are blissful and profoundly curious people, and as an attendant birthstone, Blue Topaz, associated with the characteristics of strength, tenacity, dedication, resilience and great sense, blesses the Archer with the wisdom and bravery to acknowledge reality with their trusty bow and arrow.
Wear your Blue Topaz to stabilise emotions and make you more receptive to love and affection from all sources.
The November birthstone can help reconnect you with your inner self, enabling the Sagittarius to stay true to who they are deep down inside their soul. No matter what challenge you face next if you’ve got beautiful places to be and beautiful things to accomplish, Citrine’s fiery golden energy can help enhance your natural intuition, providing you with just the right amount of guidance to see you through.
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 curiosity and passion of Sagittarius 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 Sagittarian.
