Scorpio is an intense, emotional, and intuitive energy. It’s especially important for all water signs – and those who have a lot of water placements in their natal charts, to take care of themselves.
The following crystals are recommended for soothing you, grounding you, and aiding in the manifestation process.
All of the crystals listed below can be purchased online from reputable crystal retailers. You can also of course, buy them in holistic stores and I prefer doing that because I get to see and hold them before buying them.
Before we begin, however, I’d just like to add a small disclaimer: No matter your star sign, whatever crystal you’re intuitively drawn to, that will be the crystal for you.
Please don’t forgo a beautiful crystal that you’re attracted to in a store because it isn’t on a list of crystals recommended for your sign!
As a side-note, before you start using ANY crystal, please follow the two simple steps below:
Cleanse your crystal
By passing it through the smoke of burning dry sage (smudge it) or pass it under running water and visualize it being cleansed of all negative energies to 100%. You can ask an angel, such as Archangel Michael, to assist with the process.
Program your crystal
By speaking your intention. You can say something like “this crystal will help me to manifest my hearts’ desires”.
Ok, now we got that out of the way, here’s a list of crystals that work well with the typical energies associated with your sign.
Scorpio is a water sign and is deeply intuitive, empathic and sensitive. Calming, soothing stones are therefore of great benefit for emotional well-being. You might also find that by being empathic, you absorb a lot of unwanted energies.
This crystal is widely regarded as one of the most soothing crystals.
Just by keeping rose quartz near you can be soothing. Wearing a small piece of rose quartz in a ring, bracelet or necklace can provide you with the soothing energy of the crystal.
Or you can place a beautiful piece of rose quartz in a place that could do with a little calming energy such as on your desk.
Interestingly, some people who work with crystals say that rough forms (unpolished) crystals exude more energy than those that are polished.
I’m not sure if this is true or not, however, I do keep both polished and unpolished crystals and because rose quartz is such an important crystal, I only keep rough chunks of it around my home. It’s safe and it’s also a little cheaper!
It also looks more magical and alluring in my opinion!
This pretty quartz crystal is also said to possess physical healing properties and Reiki masters sometimes use them to help with physiological issues. So it would be worth getting in touch with a Reiki master or crystal healer.
Cost: Rough and polished tumble stones are around $1 each for the larger pieces.
Being so sensitive, you can become easily overwhelmed.
Selenite can help to clear lingering, unhelpful energies.
This fragile, milky, reflective and stunningly beautiful crystal should be viewed as an energy or air filter.
The primary function of this crystal is to maintain a clean vibration in the area that it’s located in.
It’ll help to keep the energy clear in the room that you place it in.
I would advise keeping a selenite tower (small, medium or large in size) somewhere where you spend a lot of your time such as:
- on your desk next to your laptop
- on the coffee table in the den
- on the kitchen table
- on your nightstand
- OR, in all of those locations – and more!
Selenite also looks deliciously ethereal and can add a little touch of sparkle and intrigue to any part of your home!
Cost: A 10-12cm tower costs around $10 — and you never need to spend time cleansing it because it’s a cleansing crystal itself.
Obsidian is probably one of the best gemstones to guard against negative energy. It’s dark, dense, and perfect for capturing and holding unwanted, unhelpful, and overall bad energy.
It’s a natural glass that is actually solidified lava also called igneous rock.
The best way to use it is to wear it as jewelry, especially as a pendant. Cleanse it after purchase, set your intention, and visualize white light around you every time you leave the house.
It will need regular, preferably daily, cleansing as it’s so good at absorbing low energies.
Cost: Around $4 for a pyramid or $3 for a bracelet.
Amethyst is considered an all-purpose crystal and it is. It’s great for pretty much anything. For Scorpios, it can be soothing and calming AND it’s magnificent at keeping negative energy at bay. It will not only absorb any low vibrational energies, but it will also gently condition your surrounding energy with high vibrational energy.
Cost: Around $5 for a pyramid or $2 for a bracelet.
Here’s how to use ANY crystal when manifesting:
Follow the two steps at the beginning of this article and then hold your crystal:
While are meditating or visualizing, hold your crystal in the palm of your hand or close to your heart. Once your meditation session comes to an end, continue to keep it in your space and near you (such as on your desk). You can visualize as many times as you need to while holding it until your manifestation comes to pass.
Moldavite is a very powerful manifesting crystal but it isn’t for everyone. People who aren’t compatible with it may feel a little sick when holding it.
It can be considered too ‘strong’ for most signs but Scorpio, being associated with the occult, fearlessness, and strength, can usually handle it.
It’s a crystal that originates from a meteorite impact in the distant past (circa 15 million years ago). It is said that it holds a powerful vibration that can aid visualization and therefore, possibly speed up the manifestation process.
Cost: Sadly, Moldavite is remarkably pricey. You’re looking at around $10 for a chip that is around 1cm in width. On the plus side, you only need a small piece as it’s so powerful. You might like to go for a small piece set in silver or gold jewelry.
Sometimes, finding this rock in holistic shops can be tricky as it isn’t a very sought-after or commonly known crystal. Look online, especially on Etsy. You can see the reviews others have left sellers and gauge seller credibility.
Citrine is said to be of great benefit when manifesting wealth in particular. Wealth is typically important to Scorpios as it helps them to feel secure in life and affords them intense and stimulating life experiences such as exotic vacations.
We’re all perfectly capable of manifesting anything we desire as long as it’s for our highest good with or without crystals but many people believe, including me, believe that they help to condition the energy of the manifestation and help it come to fruition.
Cost: This is one of the more expensive crystals. Real citrine is definitely going to set you back a little. A small point tower of around 8cm in height will set you back around $100.
Where to buy: I prefer buying expensive crystals from physical brick and mortar stores where you can hold the crystal, feel its energy, and decipher if you feel a connection to it.
Watch out for fake citrine
Real citrine should look like clear quartz with a yellow tinge. Some of the crystals that are bright yellow in colour and labelled as citrine can be burnt Amethyst so watch out for that.
If you’re in doubt about a piece of citrine you’d like to buy, contact the retailer and ask if it’s real although the price tag will usually indicate its authenticity.
