Unlucky crystals for your star sign can make you moody and irritable.
Beware of unlucky crystals for your star sign – we all have gemstones that are incompatible. These can have a negative effect on your health and your mood. Check out which ones you should avoid with our crystal health guide!
Avoid: Jet and pearls. In Victorian times, women wore jet to ward off the Evil Eye, but jet is known to draw black emotions, and pearls bring tears. The effect of these stones on the direct and fearless Arien personality is to make it foolhardy and negative, and to bring on dark, mood-altering emotions.
Avoid: Garnet. The expression ‘red rag to a bull’ couldn’t be more apt – this crimson stone directs anger inwards, which leads to suppressed feelings. Voluble Taureans need to talk and express their emotions, so wearing garnet can make them psychically sick!
Avoid: Green Bloodstone will bring Geminis nothing but aches and pains. Highly strung at the best of times, this stone can turn Twins into hypochondriacs. Steer clear too of Blue Agate, the stone of communication, unless you want to end up with a severe case of laryngitis!
Avoid: Opal. Caring and sensitive with a laid-back attitude, Cancerians like to take small steps instead of steaming straight in there! The Opal is the exact opposite. It can bring the wearer delusions of grandeur, which is totally at odds with the Crab’s down-to-earth personality.
Avoid: Aquamarine. This innocuous-looking blue stone turns go-getting Lions into frightened defeatists. Aquamarine is a water crystal – if a fire sign like Leo wears it, the spiritual connection is lost and the positives become negatives.
Avoid: Any Agate, but particularly Fire Agate. Virgos are notoriously fussy, and this can tip over into obsession with the wrong influences. Occultists consider Fire Agate a malignant stone that could cause great stress in anyone, particularly someone as sensitive and insecure as a Virgo maiden.
Avoid: Ruby. This occult stone has a magnetic influence on sensitive and laid-back Librans. Wearing a red ruby might escalate your career into a pressured leadership environment – a nightmare for the sign that prefers relaxed creativity to making difficult decisions!
Avoid: Azeztulite. Scorpions are not the most practical of people at the best of times – and wearing this stone will send your ego spiralling out of control, to the annoyance of those around you! You’ll become just too hot to handle…
Avoid: Green or Pink Watermelon Tourmaline. Although this stone aids communication, it can be too much when worn by a fire sign. The influence of the planet Jupiter means the fiery Archer can be outspoken and often tactless – and this stone can send you into sharp-tongued overdrive which hurts people!
Avoid: Celestine. Goats have big hearts but at times they feel like they carry the world on their shoulders. Capricorns also like to get stuff done, and Celestine is an idealistic crystal that can cloud their vision, preventing them from seeing the wood for the trees.
Avoid: Turquoise. This emotionally charged beautiful blue stone will change colour to dark green if the wearer is not suited to it, and when this happens, it creates chaos and confusion for the eccentric but controlled Aquarian. It can seriously change your outlook on life, and not for the best.
Avoid: Moldavite. Creative Pisceans are happiest working alone. It’s best to avoid the meteorite Moldavite gem, which can give the wearer a sense of melancholy because such is its enthusiastic power that Pisces will feel they’re not able to live up to their true potential.
