As beautiful as crystals are, you don’t need them all. If you’re anything like me though, you’ll want them anyway! I have a rather huge collection myself because you never know when you may need one.
How do you choose the crystals meant for you? There are a few ways to do this and I will share them with you, so all you need to do is keep reading to find out what crystals will help you based on your Zodiac sign and your intentions.

One of the ways you can pick out the crystals meant for you is via your birth sign. Everyone has a birthstone, but there are also crystals associated with each sign.
I wrote a whole article on this topic because it’s super helpful information to know. But for now, I will briefly give you some crystals that go with your sign along with your birthstone.

Crystals For Health
When you’re choosing crystals for healing, you will want to pick the ones that are suitable for your condition, illness, or needs.
If you’re looking to help you out of a mental funk, there are crystals that can help with mood enhancement.
Perhaps you have a minor cut or scrape you want to heal quickly… you can do that!
I highly suggest you get a book on crystals. The best one I know of and personally own is called “The Crystal Bible.” There are different volumes as well. They are some of the most informative you can find.
Though I will say this, there are plenty of websites that will also have similar information. You type in what is going on with you or what you want to work on; the crystals you need will be listed.
Intention plays a huge role in empowering your stones with belief and healing energy. This will help in many ways but don’t ignore a physician’s attention when needed.
Other crystals that tend to get used for various types of healing would be Selenite, Clear Quartz, Amethyst, Calcite, and Citrine.
There are more than that but those along with the Bloodstone are among the most used for all types of healing.
Crystals For Love
Whether you’re looking to find love, heal love, repair or revive a relationship, there are crystals you can use.
There are crystals that are commonly used in matters of the heart. Those would be Rose Quartz, Rhodonite, Jade, Pink Tourmaline, and Moonstone.
Moonstone is used for various things, you’ll notice. It’s a powerful stone that helps you manifest your dreams, so it makes sense it would help in matters of love.
It’s a great stone to have for psychic or spiritual work as well as manifesting. You should have one in your collection! Anyone can work with it as long as you believe in its energy.

Crystals For Beginners
Yes! There are crystals that are specifically amazing for first-time users. I definitely want to tell you about those because you’re on a new adventure and need to know what you can start with.
Some of these crystals have already been mentioned. Nearly all crystals are multi-functional. There are some that should always be in your set no matter what you’re doing.
It’s sort of like having a set of cooking tools. You don’t know what you might need, and so it’s good to have everything on hand. That also applies to crystals.
One of those crystals is Rose Quartz. Yes, the first thing you think of is love or healing. This is also associated with your Heart Chakra. This is a nurturing and supportive crystal.
Another must-have is Citrine. This is an energetic stone that can actually boost your energy if you’re feeling low or lethargic. It’s also fantastic for doing manifesting work. It encourages your gratitude to the Universe.
Use this crystal to meditate or work on healing, love, money, or anything else you need. It’s a versatile stone and a lovely addition to your collection.
Clear Quartz is another that almost any practitioner (including myself!) has. You should definitely have a piece, if not multiples. This helps give clarity in whatever it is you’re doing.
You can use it for anything. Carry some with you daily to help you keep a clear mind. It will also help you stay focused and stay in tune with your Third Eye.
Hematite and Black Tourmaline are two very powerful stones you can use for protection, stress relief, or keeping negative energy away from you. I recommend getting at least one of the two.
It will help you heal yourself from negative energies that may be making you ill. You can also repel negative people by wearing it. These beautiful stones should be part of your daily life.
Now, I did mention Moonstone because of its versatility, so I do recommend this for your beginner’s kit.
Finally, you need a green crystal to help with money, finances, or abundance in life. For this I recommend Malachite. This strange but gorgeous crystal can warn you if you’re in imminent danger.
It’s said that it will break in half when you’re wearing or carrying it if you’re in danger. I have never had that happen yet, as I do use mine often. It’s fantastic for healing.
It’s great for meditation or keeping your soul on track. Truly it’s one of the necessities for someone new to crystals and crystal work.
One last tip… If you put Smoky Quartz in your vehicle, it will help it to stay working! I did that in more than one of mine and if something did happen, I was still always able to get somewhere safe.
I also had considerably fewer issues with my vehicles when I carried the stone in them.
There are lots of amazing things that crystals can help you with. I am happy to guide you into your journey with the crystals that you would like to work with.
Choosing crystals is not too complicated. I would like to say that you also want to go with any that you are drawn to. There may be several! Then again, it may only be one at a time.
You should always cleanse and energize any crystal you get. It’s just more personal when you get to pick your own piece. Hold it and feel its energy. You’ll know which one is right for you.
I hope this helps give you a better understanding of how to choose the crystals meant for you.
I wish you all the luck in the world on your journey!
