About The Sun Signs...

Below you will find a description of each of the Sun Signs and a list of just a few stones that generally are harmonious with each particular Sign. Because we are each very unique and individual creatures born with many energetic influences, we each will find that we resonate with some stones/crystals more than others.

Our Sun Signs can help us to narrow down the search a little if we are just starting out. Stones that are more specific to you can be discovered from your Birth Chart.

The Sun represents our will and purpose, our sense of vitality and evolving higher self. Keep this in mind when reading each Sun Sign.

You may be involved with the past in some way, because the sign of Cancer, the sign of nurturing, protecting and sustaining, is strongly tied to the past, and the principle of Karma.

You may tend to collect the residue of past experience and hold onto it, allowing it to color present activities and lead you to instinctual action. Practicing conscious awareness of your thoughts, feelings, actions and reactions will serve you well for your spiritual growth.
