12 Crystals for Leo: In Like A Lion

The season of Leo is right around the corner (July 23 – August 22), which means the season is about to explode (fire sign). When you think of a Leo, think of the bright, golden sun as that’s the color usually associated with it.

The full spectrum and hues of the golds, yellows, and oranges scream warmth and radiance, which represents a Leo sufficiently. The lion sufficiently represents the personality of a Leo: a leader, powerful, radiant, and fiery.

The personal power and self-confidence Leos portray in their leadership can come across as overly confident and a little arrogant to some people. But don’t misunderstand the fiery, vibrant energy of a Leo.

Although they can come across as arrogant and self-serving, Leos are warm-hearted creatures, who happen to be natural-born leaders. Leos never settle and are fully confident in who they are.

But even so, there are crystals that can enhance those warm qualities of the Leo. In this article, we’ll identify 12 crystals Leos can use to help manifest their intention and to enhance their already great qualities.

If you engage regularly with a Leo, you’ll appreciate how the natural tendencies of these crystals will make them even better to know and have by your side.

Rose Quartz

Sometimes Leos could use a little help in the area of love. That’s not because they’re not loveable, they’re just so confident and upbeat that they can sometimes tune others out and miss the signs.

That’s why Rose Quartz is such a good crystal for them. It attracts love and positive emotions.

This should also help a Leo be more open and understanding to constructive criticism. You never know where true honesty will take you in a relationship.

Shungite

While you may not see Leos as needing a burst of energy because they’re so fiery, that’s exactly why they need a burst. Leos are so fiery and full of energy; they can easily burn out.

Shungite can help with this, as it has the energy needed to keep going to complete all those goals.

Sunstone is heavily affiliated to the Sun, just as the name suggests, but is available in more colors than yellow. Some of the colors you’ll see in the Sunstone are brown, peach, pink, orange, gold, and red, and the colors really pop when exposed to the light.

Sunstone is a symbol of self-empowerment and radiates gentile energy, and is great for leaders to help with clarity, physical strength, personal power, and overall generosity.

Using Your Crystals

Many crystals exist and anyone can benefit from them. But when you combine the right crystal with your horoscope sign, the benefits are even greater. The right crystals can help you connect to your purpose.

As in the case of the Leo, who have so many great things going for them already, it only makes sense to enhance that with any one of these stones. With any crystal, it’s important to set your intention for it.

Beyond that, what should you do? So, now that you know the best crystals for Leo, here’s what to do next …

Meditate

If you’re one who meditates, using crystals will be a breeze, as you can add them to your meditation routine. Simply hold the crystal in one or both hands as you go through your routine.

If you don’t meditate, now is as good a time as any to start. As you’re holding the crystal in your hand(s), close your eyes and focus on breathing.

Meditation helps bring awareness to our surroundings and the crystal will help with that. Not all crystals may feel the same during meditation, and not all will resonate. So be patient, but practice.

The more you practice and become familiar with the routine, the more likely you’ll yield results.

Yoga

As with meditation, you can also use your crystal during yoga. Placing the crystal on your yoga mat and keeping it there during your yoga practice helps to bring peace and tranquility during your workout.

Carry it With You

Carry your crystal around with you as this keeps you in close contact with it. And the more contact you have with it, the better.

Pendulum Necklaces

Carry it in your pocket, around your neck, in your purse, or wherever it feels close to you so you can harness the energy. It’s even okay to just hold it in your hand as you’re walking or sitting.

Place it On You

This is not new to anyone familiar with chakra (root, heart, crown, third-eye), as crystals have more effect when they are placed directly on the body. Place the stone on the part of the body that represents the chakra you’re working on healing.

As you research your stones more, decide if there is a Leo crystal that also addresses a specific chakra.

Decor

It’s not unusual to see crystals strategically placed as decorative pieces in meditation or yoga studios. You can also do that at home.

If you want to always have a certain energy in your presence while at home, place the crystals throughout your personal space. You can use clusters of small stones or make a major statement with large stones.

Self-Care

This is so important that I’ll re-emphasize — the most important thing about crystals is setting your intention. Once you do that, crystals can be used in almost any capacity, even for self-care. Take your crystal with you on a spa day or place them in your bath. (Just make sure they’re water safe!) Crystals should be cleansed from time to time anyway.
