Uncover Your Libra Birthstones
You are a dreamer. You are the peacekeeper. You long for meaningful experiences. The Libra sign thrives when they feel balanced and fulfilled in their life. Ruled by the planet Venus, Libra longs for harmonious relationships, insisting on honest and open communication with compromise and negotiation. The Libra sign also tends to overthink, a trait that can be channeled into more positive thinking with daily meditation practice.
Without inhibitions holding them back, the Libra sign is very sociable and likes to go with the flow. But when it comes to being a champion for justice, they will always stand up for what's right. As an air sign, the Libra can easily access a higher state of mine, but too much time with their head in the clouds can make them indecisive, especially when looking at the big picture. Libra birthstones can help counteract this weakness by balancing yin and yang energies, giving the Libra sign the balance and support they need to make decisions with purpose and confidence.
Libra birthstones are a great way for the energetic and adaptable Libra sign to make the most of their unique qualities. The best crystals for Libra are Lapis Lazuli, Citrine, Labradorite, Aquamarine, and Moonstone. Lapis Lazuli energizes the throat and heart chakras, allowing the Libra to communicate effectively and make better decisions that support their dreams.
Another heart-opening Libra gemstone is Aquamarine, a blue-green mineral that supports the Libra's best qualities, including self-acceptance, open-mindedness, and compassion--all of which create an emotional balance that the Libra needs to feel fulfilled in life. A Libra gemstone of joy and optimism, Citrine helps bring balance and purpose to the Libra by cleansing the chakras and protecting their aura. Moonstone helps the thoughtful and intuitive Libra to find peace of mind and inspires them to live with a sense of purpose and meaning.
