Do you want to enhance your Virgoan qualities? Or are Virgo traits such as micromanaging and "people pleasing" holding you back? These nine crystals may help!
If you were born between August 23rd and September 22nd, you fall into the zodiac sun sign of Virgo. This lovely star sign is centred around helping others and caring for the planet.
Many Virgoans are hard workers, have endless energy and excel at supporting friends, colleagues and loved ones. This makes them an asset in the workplace and wonderful friends - but sometimes at a cost to their own happiness and health!
For this reason, you may benefit from using crystals to enhance positive Virgoan traits and dampen less desirable ones. Here are nine of my favourite crystals for Virgo.
