Crystals for Cancer Zodiac Sign
You might be a hard shell to crack, but you sure aren’t crabby!
June 21 marks the day of summer solstice, it, is the beginning of the summer. This is the beginning of the time governed by the Zodiac sign of Cancer. This period from June 21 to July 22 was the time of the year in ancient times when the sun rose in the constellation of Cancer.
The Constellation of Cancer and its Zodiac sign have often been depicted by a Crab. The stars that form the constellation were thought in pass times to form the shape of the crustational creature, the Crab. Crabs are capable of walking sideways. People born under the sign of Cancer are believed to be adaptable and, like the crab that can move sideways, people born under the sign are “free to roam" in life.

If you have worked with crystals before you probably already know how amazing Mother Earth’s treasures can be. If you have not, congratulations on beginning your crystal journey! We hope you enjoy working with crystals and experiencing how they can enhance and improve your life. Crystals have been used by people for thousands of years. Whether your are looking for crystals for Cancers or crystals for any zodiac, there are gems that correspond to your sign. There are over 200 references in the Bible about crystals and they were an integral part of biblical life, including the twelve stones on the breastplate of the High Priest Aaron. Ancient Egyptians used Carnelian, Lapis Lazuli, Peridot and other crystals in their jewelry and other adornments. Roman soldiers even carried Tiger Eye to encourage bravery in battle.
Emerald Crystal for Cancer Zodiac
The month of June holds the place of the birthstone Emerald. This is the traditional crystal of the universe of the sign of Cancer. This green gem is the lucky color of Cancer. This fresh, leafy hue is the color of balance as seen in nature. Grassy in color, this is the glow of most living things. The same is true with the zodiac sign Cancer, who is extremely sensitive to their environment, and tenderly nurtures the people surrounding them. Green embodies balance, the Cancer sign is the epitome of emotional stability, and the Cancer birthstone, emerald, believed to carry this power for emotional well-being.
Grandma Terra says emerald crystal of Cancer brings clairvoyance, or the ability to predict the future: a talent not unthinkable of Cancer men and women.
Moonstone Crystal for Cancer Zodiac
As ancient as the moon itself, Moonstone holds the power of mystery ( just like our Mystery Candles). Its divine secrets are locked beneath a pearly veil, and with them, our own hidden truths. Only within its reflected light can we begin to understand what it has to teach us.
The Moonstone crystal for Cancers waxes and wanes depending on the angle you hold it. It is called the “gem of hope”. It is particularly good for those, who are born in the month of July or those who have sensitive stomachs. It is particularly lucky for those having their birth numbers as 2 or 7 (both interchangeable numbers).
Ruby Crystal for Cancer Zodiac
The stone for nobelity, fit for the kings and queen, this fiery stone is considered one of the most magnificent of all gems. Revered in many cultures throughout history, Ruby has always been a symbol of passion, protection and prosperity. It is the sun, and its glowing hue suggests a flame that cannot be smothered. Iif Ruby were cast into water it would cause it to come to a bubbling boil, and if carved and pressed into wax, it would melt the wax (this is why there are no rubies in our candles ;)) It was worn as an amulet or charm to ward off plague and pestilence, warned its wearer of impending danger, kept the body safe, and banished sadness and foolish thoughts. It was said by Grandma Terra to bring its owner peace, drive away frightful dreams, restrain lust, and to help resolve disputes.
Amber Crystal for Cancer Zodiac
Amber is one of the world’s oldest and most coveted treasures, a “Gold of the Sea” intrinsically formed by light and life, preserved by time and washed upon the shores for humanity, a symbolism of beauty, protection and renewal. It has been portrayed as drops of the sun, tears of the gods, hardened honey, and sunlight solidified, and is as desired today as it was in the most ancient cultures, utilized as far back as the Stone Age for its pleasing warmth of color, value in adornment, and its magical and medicinal properties.
