The Crystals You Need During Capricorn Season:


Caps may try to convince you that they are simply realistic, but the truth is that their practical approach to life can border on cynical or pessimistic. Jet is a wonderful crystal to use to even this energy out. While you probably won’t be able to find a crystal that will turn a Capricorn into a bubbling optimist, jet can help you see things from a neutral point of view, removing the negativity from your vision.


Garnet is a beautiful, deep red crystal that is associated with Capricorn; garnet is one of Cap’s birthstones. It amplifies Capricorn energy in general, but specifically penetrating the heart. Garnet promotes love and attracts romance, making it an excellent stone to work with for anyone looking to increase the love in their life. This crystal can help you get in touch with the hopeless romantic inside of you.

Green Aventurine

Green aventurine comes in shades of green, often with glittering flecks of minerals. This crystal is often referred to as the Stone of Opportunity because of its powers of manifestation. It attracts both opportunity and abundance, and beyond that, it has a very uplifting energy. This stone helps us during times of loneliness, lifting the heart and reminding us that we are loved. January is often cited as the most depressing month of the year, so this an excellent crystal to work with during the Capricorn season.

White Howlite

Capricorns are motivated and seek success, but you may forget to take a break and practice self-care, which we all need. You are not impervious to needing rest, Capricorn, and you will end up burning out if you keep running along your path so fast. Remember how fast the Titanic was going when it crashed into an avoidable iceberg? When we move too fast, we may not be able to see obstacles in our path - such as emotional or physical exhaustion.

White howlite will remind you take a moment, stretch your limbs, and smell the fresh air. It calms the spirit and allows you to relax into those mundane moments that may otherwise feel alien or anxiety-inducing to you. This crystal lets your body and your mind take a much-needed rest.

Snowflake Obsidian

Snowflake obsidian has a purifying energy that cleanses the space around it, removing negativity and energetic impurities. This crystal, typically a dark grey with lighter spots all over, helps you recognize patterns of thought that are no longer serving you, and it helps you release those patterns.

Another crystal that soothes feelings of loneliness, it also has a calming effect on the body. It provides balance between the mind, body, and soul, and allows one to sink into meditation with ease. This is an especially useful stone to use during yogic or meditative practices.

Celebrating Capricorn Energy

Saturn is planet that challenges us and teaches us the lessons we need to learn in order to grow and become successful and abundant; and while this is certainly a blessing in the long run, it can feel overwhelming when Saturn’s energy is palpable.

Because Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, that energy may feel more intense than usual during the Capricorn season, and it’s important to remember that challenging situations are what shape us into the strong, courageous people that we are.

Try to embrace the feeling of responsibility and the urge towards hard work that may be felt during this time. By using the crystals listed in this guide, you will feel more capable of staying positive and motivated, even during times of stress. The motivating, inspiring energy of the Capricorn constellation is perhaps the greatest gift given during this astrological period.
