For the Leo sign, crystals are a major power source for supercharging their distinctive personality traits. The crystals that are connected with the Leo sign are Tiger's Eye, Pyrite, Carnelian, and Hematite. A power crystal containing the energy of the Earth and the sun, Tiger's Eye helps the determined Leo access their go-getter attitude and fulfill their passions with courage and motivation. Another power stone for the Leo is Pyrite, a mineral known for promoting success and abundance. The ambitious lion can harness its energy to transform their dreams into reality.
A Leo gemstone that also has grounding properties is Hematite, which supports the energetic and action-oriented Leo with a calm yet determined energy. Carnelian is a Leo gemstone that radiates joy and optimism, making it perfect for encouraging Leos to tap into their creative spirit and follow their true passions.
Leo Stone Color
With its unique healing effects and properties, the color of a Leo gemstone adds another layer of meaning to its energetic frequencies. When a Leo is thriving, they are natural crowd-pleasers with their irresistible charisma and charm. Falling in sync with the naturally sunny disposition of a self-actualized Leo is the vibrant orange color of Carnelian, a Leo stone of happiness and joy. Harnessing the energy of the sun at its peak midday strength, orange symbolizes the light and freedom that comes from letting go and celebrating non-attachment. Like Vitamin C for the soul, orange-colored crystals truly rock at strengthening and uplifting the Leo spirit.
A supercharged version of yellow, gold is the color that symbolizes the energy of the sun as it begins to fade from the horizon. Gold-colored Leo stones such as Tiger's Eye and Pyrite contain the energy of abundance and strength, which ignite the Leo’s personal power and inner strength. The same color as the stars in the night sky, silver-colored gemstones like Hematite have cleansing and healing effects that help the Leo sign to get rooted and grounded to enhance feelings of determination.
How to Use Your Leo Gemstone
What has worked for us in our 20 years of experience with crystal healing is the game-changing combination of commitment and intention. By connecting with crystals on a daily basis, the ambitious Leo can reinforce their aspirations and goals by programming their Leo gemstone with a specific intention.
For the high-energy Leo that is always on the go, wearing jewelry made with Leo stones and other healing crystals is an easy and stylish way to have constant access to their powerful healing properties. You can harness the power of Leo crystal jewelry through two of our favorite pieces: the Fear Breaker with Tiger's Eye and the Motivator with Carnelian. Using Tiger’s Eye and Carnelian, two of the most powerful crystals for the Leo, these pieces enhance and balance the energy of this sign. The Fear Breaker helps you conquer your fears and push past any limits. The Motivator boosts your personal power and inner strength to accomplish your goals. Wearing these stones on your body ensures you have a constant source of energy at all times.
Leo crystals contain many different frequencies and properties, which support and strengthen all the different characteristics and traits that are unique to the Leo sign, the mighty Lion of the zodiac. Like other crystals in the mineral kingdom, a Leo stone magnifies the energy around it, which is why it is vital that you keep them cleansed and activated on a daily basis. For the best results, there are many effective cleansing practices that have worked for us over the years, such as sage smoke, Selenite charging plates, a copper pyramid, and sunlight/moonlight.
Now that your Leo gemstone is cleansed and activated, it is open and receptive to new programming. Make your Leo stones work for you by setting them with an intention that resonates with the goals and aspirations of the ambitious Lion. The more you know about Leo crystals and their healing properties, the stronger you can connect with their healing energies.
Along with healing jewelry, you can also harness the healing energy of crystals with tumbled Leo crystals or touchstones, which can be held in your palm for extra support during your meditative practice. Take this quiet and reflective time to focus on your intention with a positive and affirming mantra that aligns with the warm and courageous spirit of the Leo sign.
A Birthday Ritual For The Leo
One of the most powerful ways to use Leo crystals is through a crystal birthday ritual. You can use this simple practice each year to harness the full energetic potential of your special day.
On the day of your birthday, light your Fluorite Crystal Candle and make your birthday wish, allowing your crystals and your candle to send your wish out into the universe and amplify its energy.
