The Best Color for Each Zodiac Sign: Chakras & Crystals
Your zodiac sign can give you powerful insight into your past, present and future, but it’s not an isolated system. Your body and mind form a complex matrix that responds to colors and crystals as well as the movement of the stars.
Each sign also has a favored chakra (called power chakras by some) that relates to our sign’s qualities. When you know which colors, crystals, and chakras correspond to your zodiac sign, you can create an image that simply radiates energy!
Let’s look at how this breaks down by zodiac sign.
The chakra for Aries is in the solar plexus, located in the upper abdomen. Of course, the associated colors for the sign are fiery ones: yellow, orange, and red, and as you’d expect, favored crystals are also in that color range. Citrine and red jasper are two terrific crystals for Aries.
Taurus’ chakra is the heart, and the sign’s best colors are pink (representing gentle emotions and love) and green (representing health and growth). Corresponding crystals include the classic rose quartz, which is excellent for “matters of the heart,” and green aventurine. Rhodonite, an opaque, dark pink stone, is also a lovely choice.
Gemini’s chakra is the throat chakra - could it be anything else for this communicative sign? Yellow and light blue are excellent colors for Geminis, and citrine and celestite are nifty stones. Celestite is especially appropriate for the throat chakra.
Sensitive Cancer is associated with the third-eye chakra, which is the one in your forehead above your nose. Black, blue, and white - colors that are often associated with deep seas and waves - are perfect for crabs. Moonstone is the classic Cancerian crystal.
Leo the leader - you’ve got the crown chakra, which isn’t a big surprise. Your colors and crystals are royal through and through, with gold, red, and purple as the best three colors for you. Carnelian, citrine, orange calcite, garnet, and pyrite (a.k.a. fool’s gold) are all appropriate crystals for you.
Detailed Virgo is associated with the throat chakra. Navy or dark blue, and occasionally black and brown, are good colors for the sign of the virgin. Corresponding crystals include the dark blue dumortierite and the brownish/reddish mookaite jasper.
Community-minded Libra and the heart chakra go hand in hand, as do the colors pink and light blue. Rose quartz and celestite are a terrific combination of crystals; buy and use them together if you can.
Scorpio is another sign associated with the solar plexus chakra (surprisingly, not the root chakra), and red is a good color for the sign of transformation. Intense scorpions should look to Red jasper as a suitable stone.
Fire sign Sagittarius goes with the sacral chakra in the lower abdomen. Fiery red and purple are perfect for archers; look to red goldstone as a fantastic choice when searching for color-appropriate crystals and stones.
Determined Capricorn isn’t always so serious, but your chakra is the root - an apt combination given your love of stability and security. Black, brown, and green are your go-to colors; malachite, obsidian, and smoky quartz are all good crystals for you to work with or wear.
Aquarius is another root chakra sign, which should not be a surprise given Aquarius’ tendency to weigh risks and prefer better odds. However, an Aquarian color is blue - not navy or dark, but much bolder. Abalone shell, with its shiny bands of varying shades of blue, is a wonderful choice of stone if you can find one that was humanely obtained.
Spiritual Pisces is associated with the sacral chakra, but its colors are more watery than those of fellow sacral sign Sagittarius. Green and blue stones, such as blue lace agate and aquamarine, are best for this sign.
While these are the natural connections between zodiac, chakras, and crystals, don’t forget your own preferences should be taken into account, too!
For example, if you’re an Aquarius who prefers green, go for it and find a stone that speaks to you (you may be feeling the influence of your Ascendant or Moon sign). Experiment with colors and stones, and pay attention to the chakra associated with your sign. Your “gut” feelings can show up there as well.
