Choosing stones based on your astrological sign is one way of selecting which healing stone(s) to work with. If you are drawn to astrology, you know that each sign has different character traits and challenges during your lifetime. Astrology is a complex science and many are only familiar with the simple newspaper style horoscopes. Using just the sun sign (ie: Virgo) is a very general way of categorizing character traits for an individual. Exact time and location of birth fine-tune the traits. When selecting stones with this method it is best to select a stone that matches your astrological sign and add other stones that will work with your specific character traits or issues. This article is just going to list some stones for each sign (I have only included stones that I have available). In future articles I will cover the traits of each astrological sign and suggest stones to work with specific traits.
You will notice that some of the stones are listed under several astrological signs, this is because some traits are common with multiple signs or the stones work on several issues.
