Our non capricious Capricorn seems like they have everything under control and on the go all the time. This sign representing maturity, vocation and structure can be a little intimidating to those of us who aren’t as organized and decisive as Capricorn. Generally, they are very open and warm people, but can take time to let down their guard and have a little bit of fun. We hope this stone selection can help Capricorn focus less on the end goal and more on the present.
Amethyst is a stone that is essentially suitable for all Zodiac signs in many capacities. Capricorns can be focused on their projects too intensely and live in the mind body too much. Amethyst creates a pathway to mental relaxation and opens the crown to the collective consciousness. This allows Capricorn to appreciate the spiritual side of life and be less focused on the material. This creates more exploration of personal connection with others and themselves.
Capricorns are known to mature backwards, unlike the other Zodiac signs. Representing maturity and the patriarch archetype, they come into this world with a grounded sense of beingness, however this almost backwards experience of self development can create a unique experience for our Capricorns. Self-esteem can waiver, especially in adulthood, because they came into this world so self-assured (I may also add, modestly) Capricorn tends to underestimate themselves. Dendritic Sonoran, known as Strengthener for the Soul, helps build Capricorn’s self-esteem, providing them with grounding in their evolution. This stone helps those who live in their mind-body learn to live in the spirit-body.
Capricorns have a strong worth ethic, and it is very easy to see them go into a work-acholic trajectory. Garnet is essential for Capricorns as they push their bodies as hard as they push their minds. “There ain’t no rest for the wicked” is their core philosophy. These people hustle. So having Garnet in their crystal collection can help nourish their bodies, replenish their energy stores and in turn keep their passion and motivation alive for their work or projects. If health starts to go down so does motivation and without motivation Capricorn will feel lost, Garnet helps stay confident, healthy and on track.
This immensely grounding stone, Lava, was born from fire. So not only is it grounding for Capricorn, but it also lights their fire and enthusiasm for their focuses and goals in their life! Accentuating Capricorn’s already strongly stimulated practicality, Lava stone also offers support through life changes and assertiveness in setting boundaries. Lava stone holds the energy of Hawaiian fire Goddess Pele. Pele came from a Volcano. Her potent energy works as a powerful, fiery support to any wearer, be it Capricorn or otherwise.
MOONSTONE with BLACK TOURMALINE
Capricorn, interestingly enough, is associated with Feminine energy solely because it is an Earth sign, but upholds father or patriarchal energy given the nature of its archetype. Because we can see this paradox, we can understand why Moonstone with Black Tourmaline is such a good stone for Capricorn. While obviously being balanced between the masculine and the feminine, this stone offers Capricorn a maintenance of this balance if things have shifted personally at any time of their lives. Maybe they are leaning too much into their masculine side and not properly expressing their emotions, that is where the Moonstone comes into play as a great support. Maybe sometimes they become too passive and lose motivation for their projects, that is where the active principle from the Black Tourmaline can come into play. This stone helps keep Capricorn in check with themselves and can be used as a meter for where they stand energetically in their lives at the time.
