Crystal Pairings for Aries Season

Top 3 Crystals for Aries Season:

Lava Rock: Lava Rock aligns well with the energy of Aries season. It provides a great boost of self-confidence, especially when you’re feeling self-conscious in unfamiliar group settings. This stone helps you feel comfortable in your own skin. Lava Rock helps you draw on your inner strength to take control of any internal thoughts that may be impacting your sense of self-worth.

Best Crystals for Aries Season

Red Pyrope Garnet: This crystal is known for its association with courage and bravery. If you’ve been letting your focus get preoccupied with how you stack up to others rather than focusing on your own strengths and gifts, you can reach for a Pyrope Garnet to help you ditch the unproductive comparisons. Though it’s natural to compare yourself to someone you know or admire, if these thoughts become unhelpful, Red Garnet can encourage you to be brave, authentic, and just be yourself.

Ruby: This red variety of Corundum is filled with fiery, passionate energy. Working with this stone can help you overcome mindset blocks that may be keeping you from recognizing your true worth. This is especially useful for those in positions of leadership or for folks in the spotlight. Ruby helps you overcome negative self-thinking so you shine your inner light with confidence and ease.

If you find yourself struggling with recognizing your self-worth this Aries season, take a few minutes to consider any negative thoughts you have about yourself that you want to change. Write these thoughts out on a small piece of paper. These may be about your personality, your body, or something else; nothing is off limits, but please only take on this exercise if you feel like you’re in a healthy mental space to acknowledge these things without adding to the issue. It may feel painful to see these things on paper, but this can help you recognize just how damaging it is to carry these thoughts with you.

Next, place a candle in a large fireproof container, light it, and then very carefully burn the paper containing your negative self-thoughts (it’s best to do this outside for safety reasons and have some way to extinguish the flame handy). As the paper burns, intend to release these from your mind and energy body.

Now, hold a Ruby crystal (or one of the other crystals associated with Aries season) in your hands (or over your heart) and think of one affirmation to replace each negative thought that was released. Carry the Ruby with you as a reminder of the positive self-image you are cultivating. Repeat this exercise as needed throughout Aries season.

Crystals for Aries in Your Chart:

In addition to working with crystals during Aries season, you may also want to work with the following stones if you have Aries energy in your birth chart.

Each of us has many astrological influences that affect our energy and the way we interact with the world around us. The energies that have the biggest influence on you are your Sun Sign, Moon Sign, and Rising Sign. These are sometimes called “Your Big 3.” These can be determined by calculating of your natal chart using the full date, time, and place of your birth.

Celebrate Aries Season

The Big Three

  • Your Sun Sign is the astrological sign that the Sun was in during the time of your birth (also known as your Zodiac sign). The Sun is the center of all life and represents your personality and spirit.
  • Your Moon Sign is determined by the sign that the Moon was in during the time of your birth and influences your Soul expression. Your Moon Sign represents your emotions, moods, and your innermost-self.
  • Your Rising Sign, also known as your Ascendant, is the planetary influence that was on the Eastern horizon when you were born. Your Rising Sign is the starting point of the first house in your birth chart and has a good deal of influence on the characteristics of your personality (sometimes even outweighing those of your Sun Sign because your Rising Sign is the part of yourself that you share with others).

If Aries is part of your Big 3, you can use the stones suggested below to enhance or balance its energy. Sunstone can always be used in place of a Sun Sign Stone (or you can use any of the Pisces crystals listed at the beginning of this article), and Moonstone can be substituted in place of a Moon Sign Stone.

  • Stone for Aries as Your Sun Sign: Ruby or Red Jasper
  • Stone for Aries as Your Moon Sign: Bloodstone or Imperial Topaz
  • Stone for Aries as Your Rising Sign: Ethiopian Opal or Blue Calcite

Aries Season Crystals

Working with Crystals for Your Big 3:

To work with your 3 Astrological Crystals (Sun, Moon, and Rising Signs), you can craft a crystal energy pouch with corresponding crystals and symbols.

Starting with your Sun Sign, write out the name of your sign and draw its symbol on a small scrap of paper (you may even want to draw the symbol of its ruling planet for a boost of energy). These symbols will charge up your crystal with the energy of your Sun sign. Place this paper along with your Sun Sign Stone into the pouch. As you place the stone and paper into the bag, think about what energy your Sun Sign represents and brings into your life.
Next, write out the name of your Moon sign and draw its symbol on another small piece of paper. Place this paper along with your Moon Sign Stone into the pouch. As you place the stone and paper into the bag, think about what energy your Moon Sign represents and brings into your life.

Finally, write out the name of your Rising sign and draw its symbol on the last small piece of paper. Place this paper along with your Rising Sign Stone into the pouch. As you place the stone and paper into the bag, think about what energy your Rising Sign represents and brings into your life.

After adding all the stones to the pouch, focus your intention on strengthening your positive traits and balancing the negative aspects of your unique astrological blueprint.
