Posted on June 22, 2019

Cancers belong to a sentimental, wonderfully intuitive and inspired sign. But, like every other sign, Cancers have their fair share of negative traits, such as moodiness, insecurity and pessimism.

Fortunately, crystal healing can be an incredibly effective way to alleviate some of the uncertain or negative energy that might cause these traits.

Ruled by the Moon, Cancers are deeply connected to their emotions, which is both a beautiful and somewhat distracting thing. Our emotions are important, and they guide us in many ways, but they are temporary and tend to fluctuate. When you become too concerned or overwhelmed with how you feel, it can be difficult to see the reality of a situation.

As the Sun moves into Cancer (June 22nd to July 23rd), let us celebrate the unique sensitivities, inquisitiveness, loyalty and intuition of the sign of the Crab by highlighting the crystals that empower and embolden Cancers. While all crystals will, of course, work with your imaginative energy, these crystals powerfully amplify this sign’s best qualities.

Our 6 Favourite Crystals for Cancer Season:

Rose Quartz

Rose quartz, a luscious stone that matches the millennial pink hues we all adore, is a loving stone that promotes peace and self-confidence. Working with rose quartz results in a more relaxed state of being and an increased feeling of comfort in your own skin. This stone is especially useful for Cancers because your sensitivity can sometimes cause mood swings or jealousy. You deserve to feel amped about who you are and love yourself deeply enough that you don’t feel the need to take things personally – and rose quartz will assist you in finding that peace of mind.

Abalone Shell

As a Water sign, Cancers are profoundly connected to the ocean and her waves. Abalone shell reconnects you to this energy, the primordial life force that created all of us – the intuitive force of the Earth itself. It shimmers and shines with rainbows of blues, greens and purples, reminiscent of the ocean’s glittering colors. Abalone will help you recognize and embrace the entire scope of your emotions in a healthy way and allow you to let go of the moods that are no longer serving you or bringing you joy.


As Cancer is ruled by the Moon, moonstone is a crystal that is naturally associated with the sign and enhances many of Cancer’s best qualities and traits. Moonstone is especially effective for women due to its healing properties surrounding PMS, cramps and fertility issues. It increases intuition, sharpens mental clarity and allows you to observe and experience your emotions from a more spiritual point of view. Moonstone also works to stabilize emotions and lessen their intensity. This is the perfect stone for reducing your stress and inspiring your imagination.

Moonstone is also associated with the throat chakra, clearing and aligning it and allowing you to express your emotions calmly and vividly.


Selenite is an excellent stone for clearing negative energy. In fact, selenite is so effective at eliminating negative energy that it is one of the few stones that never requires cleansing. This stone is especially useful for dark or lonely days that seem like they’ll never end. It purifies the space around you and clears any bad vibes present, allowing you to focus on how you’re really feeling without the distraction of negative energy. Selenite can also be used to cleanse your other stones.


Chalcedony is one of the best crystals for Cancer because its nature is so nurturing. It absorbs negative energy and is associated with emotional health, spiritual balance, energy, compassion and vigor. This stone is great for days when you feel run down, like you just don’t have the energy for the tasks at hand. It will infuse your spirit with mental stamina and flexibility, enthusiasm and positivity. Working with chalcedony also promotes calm, pleasant dreams.

Rainbow Obsidian

This gorgeous crystal – which resembles metallic rainbows against a dark, stormy sky – is an illuminating crystal that will help you see all of the love that exists in your life, both within you and emanating from those close to you. It promotes positivity and will help you feel joyful and protected. Rainbow obsidian helps eliminate negative thoughts and encourages you toward positive, helpful affirmations of self-love. This stone will also help you take pleasure in life, urging you to spend more time doing the things you love.

And for the ultimate gemstone set, try this beautiful Crystal Healing Collection – the perfect addition to anyone’s assortment of mystical tools.

Embrace Your Inner Crab!

These crystals will certainly help propel you toward a more positive point of view, but your sensitivity is one of the things that makes you so special. While self-improvement is a wonderful path and crystal healing a wonderful medium, don’t feel that your deeply emotional nature needs to become stiff or icy. Like the Moon, and the ocean waves which follows its cycle, your emotions ebb and flow – a natural and beautiful thing.

Loving and celebrating your Cancer nature means accepting every facet of it – the good, the great, and the moody.
