We’re all drawn to crystals for their beauty and their various healing properties, but did you know that your zodiac sign along with its corresponding planets, elements, and characteristics also play an important role in crystal healing? Crystal healing is using the properties of certain minerals and stones for the benefit of stabilizing the mental, physical and emotional states; incorporating healing crystals into your daily life and spiritual practices is always a great idea. The way we are affected by our zodiac sign and the characteristics that fall under it can tell us so much about the type of healing we require on a daily basis. Our strengths and weaknesses are impacted on many levels by different types of crystal stones and their properties. For every zodiac sign there are character flaws to address as well as high points to strengthen and in turn, a corresponding crystal. In this article we will discuss the best Taurus crystals and how people born under this zodiac sign can benefit from their energies.
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
Element: Earth (fixed)
Ruling Planet: Venus
People born under this zodiac sign tend to be calm and level-headed for the most part, but their emotions can become sporadic in difficult situations. They enjoy their solitude and respect honesty in other people and relationships when they decide on having company. Ruled by the energies of Venus, these people are very much inclined to be hard-working, loving, and passionate and their Venusian influence makes them sensual creatures; this often exudes from their mannerisms and their persuasive abilities. Taurus takes pride in hard work as well as reaping the benefits, so they often treat themselves whenever possible. Although Taurus is open-minded when it comes to new ideas, they are mostly fixed in their decisions and are hard to sway, but this also makes them loyal, dedicated, and honest companions. They are generous and loving, while also being aggressive and passionate about their beliefs. For these reasons, crystals relating to the element of Earth as well as the planet of Venus are the best companions for bullheaded Taurus, reminding them to step back and take a moment to clear their thoughts whenever hot-headedness surfaces. Below is a list of the best Taurus crystals suited to people born under the zodiac sign and Taurus season in general, along with their healing properties.

Utilizing Taurus Crystals and their healing energy in meditation and other forms of spiritual therapy will assist in alleviating most if not all of the negative effects of this time as well as helping to improve your character in a more long-term sense.
Cleansing and Charging your Taurus Crystals
Every person who has handled a crystal, has involuntarily made an energetic impression upon it, which will in turn be inevitably passed on to you. So even though some stones cleanse and charge themselves, and unless you’ve personally mined for them and they have come directly from the earth, it’s important to cleanse and charge them yourself. One of the simpler ways to cleanse and charge your crystals is by giving them a bath in either regular water or moon water and then leaving the stones out in sunlight for anywhere between three hours to three days. Most healing crystals can also be paired with selenite to cleanse, charge and amplify their energies. You can even go a step further and repeat the process of cleansing in a water bath that’s been left under moonlight and then follow up with drying them in the sun. After each time you’ve cleansed your crystals, it’s also important to form a bond between yourself and the stones. Bonding with your crystals is quite simple. In the same way that healing stones lend energy, they also absorb it so in order to make a stone your own, simply hold in your hands, meditate with it and wear or carry it often. This imprints your energy on the stone, forming a bond that allows for smooth communication between the crystal and the wearer.
