Naz’s Crystal Horoscopes 28th January - 3rd February 2018
Aries: Emerald This spellbinding crystal is often associated with the Greek Goddess of Love, Venus - who is thought to have been utterly delighted when she was named the ‘most beautiful’ in a contest between herself and the other goddesses. Like this highly competitive goddess - who is thought to have bribed the judges to win the title - this bewitching crystal suggests you may find yourself feeling very unsettled by a friend or family member’s competitive behaviour this week.
Taurus: Amber This enchanting crystal is synonymous with the tragic story of the Lithuanian Goddess of the Sea, Jurate - who is thought to have been totally heartbroken when the man she loved was killed by an evil god. Her tears - which are still said to fall to this day - are thought to have been turned into beautiful crystals by the gods, forming what we now know as Amber. Symbolising courage, it suggests someone may try to come between you and a loved one too this week.
Gemini: Sapphire Mesmerising the world with its beauty for centuries, this captivating crystal was highly prized by the Ancient Greeks - who believed the gem would lose its sparkle around liars and cheats! Synonymous with love, truth and loyalty, it suggests a friend, colleague or family member could surprise you with their deceptive behaviour this week. Protect yourself from their bad vibes and negativity - and bathe your heart in love and serenity - by keeping a Sapphire nearby.
Cancer: Peridot This beautiful crystal has bewitched people’s hearts and minds from as far back as 1,500 BC, and is thought to be one of the oldest crystals in the world. Often associated with the Hawaiian Goddess of Volcanoes and Fire, Pele - who was renowned for her fiery temper - this stunning crystal suggests a friend or family member could shock you with a fiery outburst this week. Wave goodbye to their drama - and leave the rest to karma - by keeping a Peridot nearby.
Leo: Aquamarine Capturing the hearts of everyone - from artists and jewellers, to gemologists and healers - for centuries, this enchanting crystal is often associated with the heartwarming story of a beautiful young goddess (named Amphitrite) who was charmed into marrying the Greek God of the Sea, Poseidon, by a hopelessly romantic dolphin! Synonymous with friendship, it suggests a friend or loved one could try to influence your feelings about someone around you too this week.
Virgo: Black Tourmaline This powerfully protective crystal is thought to help with everything - from keeping you calm and protecting your family, to boosting your confidence and shielding you from envy! Synonymous with the Tuscan Goddess of Witches, Aradia - who is thought to have spent her lifetime protecting others from injustice and inequality - this beautiful crystal suggests you may need to protect a friend, colleague or loved one from someone’s cruel or controlling behaviour this week.
Libra: Citrine Known as the ‘stone of success’, this mesmerising crystal was highly prized by the ancient Chinese - who believed the gem should only be given to the generous and grateful! Symbolising love, money and friendship, it suggests a friend, colleague or loved one could upset you with their ungrateful behaviour this week. Protect your heart and mind - and cast their jealousy and negativity aside - by keeping a Citrine nearby, or placing one in your home or office.
Scorpio: Pyrite Often associated with the Greek Goddess of the Underworld, Persephone - who is thought to have been abducted into the Underworld by an evil god (named Hades) - this beautiful crystal suggests you may find yourself feeling very wary of someone around you this week. Unusual behaviour from friends, colleagues and family members may leave you feeling very suspicious, and there could be a heated exchange between you and a loved one too.
Sagittarius: Ruby Thought to change colour to protect its wearer from harm and danger, this stunning crystal suggests you may find yourself feeling very drained by someone around you this week. Attention-seeking behaviour from friends and colleagues could leave you feeling very frustrated, and someone’s constant need for reassurance could really test your patience too. Prevent their negativity from driving you crazy by keeping a Ruby nearby.
Capricorn: Garnet Prized for centuries, this bewitching crystal is often connected to the Egyptian Goddess of War, Sekhmet - whose name is thought to mean ‘powerful one’. Synonymous with love, power and confidence, it suggests there could be a power struggle between you and a friend, partner or family member this week. Turn your silly rivalry into friendly comradery by keeping a Garnet in your home, bedroom or office, or wearing one each day (or every time you see them!)
Aquarius: Topaz Symbolising love, friendship and hope, this enchanting crystal suggests the bond between you and a friend, family member or colleague could blossom this week. Deep and meaningful heart to hearts with loved ones could leave you feeling very emotional, and someone you love could surprise you with a very thoughtful message or gesture too. Celebrate the love around you - and nurture the bonds between you - by keeping a Topaz nearby, or holding one by your heart.
Pisces: Malachite Said to break into pieces to warn its wearer of danger, this spellbinding crystal suggests a friend or loved one could ‘break’ the trust between you this week. Devious behaviour from colleagues and family members may leave you feeling very betrayed, and you may need to be very careful what you say around a very two-faced individual too. Protect yourself from their negativity - and surround yourself with positivity - by keeping a Malachite nearby.
