Scorpios are fiercely independent and confident; here are five crystals to help attune their energy
Scorpio season is upon us. From October 23 to November 21, the Sun is in Scorpio. It’s the most mysterious sign of the zodiac, represented by the scorpion and ruled by the planet Pluto. Scorpios are enigmatic and fiercely independent characters who exude class and confidence.
As one of the most ambitious signs, Scorpios are natural-born leaders and excellent strategists. They are known for their bravery, determination and incredible work ethic. Scorpios are highly intuitive individuals who have a penchant for uncovering the truth. They make great investigators, and they’ll dig up information about an ex or new love interest in minutes. Scorpios are extremely loyal friends and partners and the biggest cheerleaders for those in their inner circle. Since they value authenticity, they’ll love and accept you as you are.
While Scorpios are deep and emotional people who crave intimacy, they tend to guard themselves fiercely and hide their true feelings. A Scorpio never shows their cards which only adds to their reputation of being mysterious and intense. Because they value honesty, they can be mistrustful of others – especially in relationships. They struggle with jealousy, and their possessively suspicious nature makes it hard to form lasting relationships. When out of alignment, Scorpio’s shadowy side can feel manipulative, controlling or vengeful. Don’t ever cross a Scorpio, or you might just feel its sting.
Whether you are a Scorpio or would like to work with Scorpio energy this season, crystals can support you in navigating this season’s intense but magical Scorpio energy. Scorpio energy brings us themes of magic, death and rebirth, intimacy, connection and passion. Try using Scorpio’s determined energy to dive into a new (healthy) obsession while finding anchors to keep you grounded and in control. Here are five crystals that are attuned explicitly to this Scorpio energy.
Turquoise is a pale blue to sea-green stone that emits calming and tranquil energy. It was used as a protective talisman in ancient times and believed to bring the wearer good fortune, wisdom and power. This stone is primarily associated with the throat chakra, the energetic centre associated with communication and self-expression. It encourages you to communicate confidently from a place of truth, logic and wisdom rather than over emotionalism. Turquoise has a soothing energy that stabilises mood swings, prevents panic attacks, and spark self-realisation. Reach for turquoise when you feel exhaustion or fatigue – its replenishing energy will lift dark moods and restore depleted vitality.
Turquoise is an excellent stress reliever for Scorpios, who tend to overexert themselves at work. Since they suppress emotions, turquoise encourages Scorpios to express their true feelings openly and honestly.
How: Wear turquoise close to the throat chakra to help you speak your truth. Carry it with you when you feel low on energy.
Unakite is one of the most powerful stones for healing. It radiates energies of love, kindness, compassion and acceptance. Like other Jaspers crystals, unakite is deeply connected to mother earth and brings feelings of renewal and nourishment while strengthening our connection to the earth. This pink-green stone offers grounding, helps one feel balanced and whole and prepares the energetic body for deep emotional healing. It develops self-love and encourages us to build healthy relationships with ourselves. Unakite is one of the best stones to nurture feelings of sadness, grief or loneliness – it balances emotions and reminds you of the love you are capable of and deserve.
Unakite helps Scorpio keep their calm and collected demeanour during times of emotional stress. Since Scorpios can be intense and controlling, unakite supports them in being more patient, tolerant and gentle with others.
How: Wear unakite close to the heart chakra. Meditate with it when you feel anger, stress or jealousy.
Labradorite is the stone of transformation, creativity and intuition. It is a feldspar mineral with colours ranging from purple to grey-blue, green, yellow, and brown. This magical stone has multi-dimensional energy that works with all the chakras while offering protection from negativity. Labradorite enhances mental clarity, raise intuition and develop clairvoyance. It tunes you into higher frequencies, encourages exploration of spirituality and sparks artistic ambition. This cosmic stone shines a light on the truth and illuminates your soul’s path. Working with labradorite is said to bring about positive change and transformation into one’s life – making it a great ally when transitioning into something new.
Labradorite perfectly matches Scorpio’s ruling planet, Pluto, the planet associated with death and rebirth, change and transformation. It supports Scorpio in their transformation, revealing inner truths and tempering the shadowy side of their personality.
How: Work with labradorite during times of change or transition. Hold it in your hand and set your intention into the stone by visualising the positive change already coming into your life.
Rhodochrosite is a stone of selfless love, forgiveness and healing. These rose-pinks and vibrant red stones are increasingly rare minerals and highly sought after by collectors worldwide. As a powerful healer of the heart chakra, rhodochrosite is one of the most effective stones for overcoming emotional pain from the past. It is believed to assist inner child healing as it brings to the surface any buried issues that need to be resolved and released. As it transmutes buried emotional pain, it builds emotional resilience and allows you to move forward with an open heart. Bringing this stone into your energetic field will boost self-confidence, promote acceptance, forgiveness towards yourself and others. If you struggle with co-dependency, turn to rhodochrosite to support you in finding emotional independence.
Rhodochrosite tempers the stubborn and suspicious nature of Scorpio’s personality. It calms anger, jealousy and helps them release grudges so they can forgive and let go.
How: Reach for rhodochrosite when you feel excessive feelings of anger, jealousy or envy towards others. Hold it during meditation and let its loving vibrational energy melt away negative thoughts or emotions you carry.
A primary birthstone for Scorpio. Yellow Topaz, also known as Imperial Topaz, symbolises good fortune and ancient wisdom. This high vibration stone encourages nobility, generosity, and responsibility. It helps you embrace your gifts and use your actions nobly towards the greater good. It is an effective stone for manifestation or setting intentions – especially around money and success. It lifts dark moods so that you vibrate from a place of faith, gratitude and joy, thus, more likely to attract good people and opportunities your way. Yellow Topaz heals and balances the solar plexus chakra, the energetic centre associated with strength, willpower and purpose. Its empowering energies restore faith, increase a sense of belonging and instil feelings of deep-seated confidence.
Yellow Topaz is an excellent stone for Scorpios who struggle with self-doubt, self-esteem issues or clouded judgment. As a powerful energy cleanser, it brings light and positivity to Scorpios dark moments.
