Naz’s Crystal Horoscopes 21st – 27th January 2018
Aries: Coral Synonymous with love, truth and recovery, this bewitching crystal is often associated with the heartbreaking story of a beautiful young maiden (named Medusa), who was turned into a hideous monster by an angry goddess. Thought to lovingly nurture the child within – and help us love and accept the skin we’re in – it suggests you may need to distance yourself from a very critical person around you this week.
Taurus: Malachite Prized for centuries, this stunning crystal was highly prized by the ancient Egyptians, who would often crush the gems into little pieces, and use them as eye shadow. Synonymous with the Egyptian Goddess of Love, Joy and Fertility, Hathor – who was renowned for her confidence and beauty – this captivating crystal suggests you may find yourself feeling slightly threatened by a friend or loved one’s popularity this week.
Gemini: Rhodonite With a history dating back to the 18th century, this spellbinding crystal has enchanted the world with its beauty for centuries, and naturally embodies the heart-warming qualities of the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy and Compassion, Kuan Yin. Like this beautiful goddess – who was known for her forgiving nature and kindness – this enchanting crystal suggests you may need to forgive someone for their past mistakes too this week.
Cancer: Pearl These bewitching crystals have enchanted the world with their beauty from as far back as the fifth century, and were cherished by the ancient Japanese – who believed they were the sacred tears of mermaids, nymphs and angels. Synonymous with the Tahitian God of Peace, Oro – who is thought to have given the woman he loved a beautiful pearl as a token of love – it suggests a friend or loved one could surprise you with a very thoughtful gift too this week.
Leo: Jade With a rich and fascinating history, this beautiful crystal is often associated with the Aztec Goddess of Lakes and Rivers, Chalchiuhtlicue – who is thought to have been so devoted to protecting children, she carried a rattle wherever she went! Synonymous with love, friendship and loyalty, it suggests you may find yourself feeling very frustrated with a friend, colleague or loved one’s childish behaviour this week. Wave their negativity goodbye by keeping a Jade nearby.
Known as the ‘Queen of Gems’, this mesmerising crystal was highly prized by the ancient Hindus – who lovingly nicknamed the gem ‘ratnaraj’, meaning ‘king of precious stones’. Thought to change colour to protect its wearer from danger, it suggests you may see a darker side to someone around you this week. Protect yourself from their bad vibes and negativity – and bathe your heart in love and positivity – by keeping a Ruby nearby.
Libra: Topaz Revered for centuries, this enchanting crystal has captured the hearts of some of the world’s greatest icons, and is often associated with the Persian God of Light, Mithra – who was renowned for his bravery, kindness and loyalty. Like this kind-hearted god – who is thought to have been utterly distraught when he was forced to kill an animal to save humanity – this stunning crystal suggests you may need to sacrifice something you love for a friend or loved one this week.
Scorpio: Tiger’s Eye Like the beautiful animal its named after – which is so often overshadowed by the ’king of the jungle’ (the lion) – this mesmerising crystal suggests you may find yourself feeling slightly overwhelmed by your responsibilities this week. Often associated with the Chinese Goddess of Cats, Li Shou – who is thought to have been so overwhelmed by her duties, she begged the gods to give them to others – it suggests you may need to ask for some help too this week.
Sagittarius: Emerald Enchanting people’s hearts and minds since 4,000BC, this spellbinding crystal has bewitched the hearts of some of the world’s finest actresses, singers and princesses, and is thought to have been one of Princess Grace Kelly’s favourite crystals. Like these beautiful crystals – which are so easily scratched and fractured – this stunning crystal suggests you may find yourself feeling very sensitive this week.
Capricorn: Moonstone Synonymous with love, this mesmerising crystal is often associated with the Greek Goddess of the Moon, Artemis, who is thought to have been utterly heartbroken when she was tricked into killing the man she loved by her brother. Devastated by her loss, she is thought to have begged the gods to turn him into a beautiful star, and vowed to meet him in the sky each night (which is why they believed the moon rose so faithfully each night). Symbolising loyalty, it suggests you may need to show someone how much you love them too this week.
Aquarius: Rose Quartz Known as the ‘stone of unconditional love and forgiveness’, this enchanting crystal is thought to help with everything – from attracting love and strengthening friendships, to clearing skin and healing relationships! Synonymous with the Egyptian Goddess of Love and Motherhood, Isis – who is often depicted with a pair of beautiful outspread wings – it suggests you may need to reach out to someone you love this week.
Pisces: Amethyst Cherished for centuries, this captivating crystal was highly revered by the ancient Romans – who believed the gem would prevent them from getting drunk! Thought to super-charge our willpower (and help us say no and stick to it), it suggests you may need to stand your ground with someone around you this week. Nurture your heart and mind – and leave your worries behind – by keeping an Amethyst by your side.
