Do you want to strengthen your Taurus qualities? Or are negative traits, such as a dislike of change or stubbornness, interfering with your life? These nine crystals for Taurus can help.
If you were born between April 21st and May 20th, you fall into the zodiac sun sign of Taurus, the second zodiac sign.
People born under this Earth star sign are practical, generous, and trustworthy. They make wonderful friends and colleagues. As Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, Taureans also make loyal romantic partners.
Like all star signs, Taureans sometimes struggle with negative traits too. Some Taureans, for example, have a natural tendency to be overprotective or jealous in relationships.
Healing crystals are a wonderful way to reduce undesirable aspects and enhance positive Taurean traits. The nine crystals below are my favourite for this star sign.
Which are the Best Stones for Taurus?
1. Emerald (Stone of Successful Love and Infinite Patience)
Origin: Brazil, Egypt, Russia, Columbia, Africa, India, Zimbabwe
Emerald is the birthstone (Sun sign) for Taurus and the month of May. Known as the Stone of Successful Love, it encourages loyalty and patience. If you lack security in a professional or romantic relationship, it’s a brilliant crystal to use.
Emerald is also the stone for Venus, which is Taurus’ ruling planet. Venus is typically associated with love, but this planet also rules money and self-worth, which compliments Taurus’ love of luxury and financial acumen.
2. Blue Kyanite (High Vibration Stone)
Colour: Blue Streaked with White
Chakra: Throat, Third Eye
Origin: USA, Italy, Brazil, India, Austria
Blue kyanite is a beautiful moon stone for Taurus that encourages you to find your true voice. By balancing the upper Chakras, blue kyanite helps you to speak up for your beliefs.
As a high vibrational crystal, blue kyanite is also fabulous for enhancing awareness, intuitive abilities and mental thought. This stone is useful when dealing with difficult people or when you’re reluctant to express yourself for fear of upsetting the situation.
With its earthy, calm nature, you’ll gain confidence to venture into new beginnings, without worrying what other people think.
3. Boji Stone
Colour: Grey, Brown
Origin: Kansas, USA
Boji stones are a Taurus’ ascendant stone. They usually come in pairs, with a masculine ridged boji stone and a smoother feminine stone.
These stones have a strong connection to Earth, so they promote grounding and help to balance the yin-yang energy. If you’re feeling insecure, boji stones are a wonderful addition to your gemstone collection.
Also, stubbornness or lethargy can hold a Taurus back from achieving their dreams. These stones power you forward again, breaking through blockages that have held you back. The male stone will help you to take practical steps, whilst the feminine will maintain your security and stability.
Tip for Using Boji Stones: Boji stones will help you to stay focused on your practice in your meditation. Hold the ridged male stone in your right hand and the smoother female in your left hand.
4. Rose Quartz (Stone of Unconditional Love)
Origin: USA, Japan, India, Brazil, Madagascar, South Africa, Argentina, Mexico
Rose quartz is the crystal for love. By balancing the Heart Chakra, it opens your heart to love from family, friends, romantic partners, and yourself.
Balancing the Heart Chakra can also soothe feelings of inadequacy that may lead to jealousy or over-protectiveness. Combined with rose quartz’ ability to promote compassion and forgiveness, this makes it the perfect stone for rebuilding trust in a relationship.
