By developing your own sense of inner security and minimizing dependencies on others, you will learn how to trust yourself, know yourself and know others. Embrace tenderness, Cancer. There is great strength in vulnerability. Discover the power of Cancer crystals!

Cancer Stone Color
Formed deep within the heart of the earth, gemstones are a miracle of light and energy that has evolved over the millennia. Along with its unique shape and formation, the color of a Cancer stone adds another layer of meaning to its healing properties. White crystals like Moonstone, Mother of Pearl, and Quartz help to purify and cleanse the energy bodies, giving the sensitive Cancer another layer of protection and self-nurturing. The color of passion and strength, red stones like Red Jasper helps encourage the Cancer sign to take action and go after their dreams.
Enhancing the compassionate and loving nature of the Crab, pink crystals such as Rose Quartz work by deepening the heart chakra connections on all levels; including self-love, unconditional love, and romantic love.

Gemstones magnify all of the energy in their environment, which is why you should always keep them cleansed and activated for the best results. There are many ways to effectively cleanse your crystals but here are a few of our favorite methods: sage smoke, moonlight/sunlight, purifying crystals such as Selenite and Quartz, and placing them in the soil of a healthy plant.
Once your Cancer stone is cleansed activated, it is free of all previous programming and ready to be set with an intention that resonates with your true purpose in life. If you need help with your intention, learning about the meaning and healing properties of Cancer crystals can help guide you towards the best priorities for self-care and nurturing of the gentle and sensitive Cancer sign.
You can also use tumbled crystals and palm stones to deepen your meditation practice. The gentle and nurturing soul of the Cancer sign can benefit from a daily therapeutic session that starts with connecting to its healing energy. The intuitive Cancer can also find a sense of balance and clarity by focusing on an intention during meditation practice. To get the most out of your crystal healing, try to shut out any distractions by retreating to a quiet place such as a designated healing sanctuary in your home. As someone who loves cultivating a real home sweet home, the Cancer sign thrives in a calm and peaceful environment.
