Crystals For Cancer's Energy

Below I am going to go through the healing crystals I recommend for Cancer's season and energy.


Moonstone is one of Cancer's birthstones. It has a variety of feldspar revered for its multicoloured sheen when polished. This optical illusion is referred to as "adularescence" and is responsible for giving the stone its pearly, milky glow which reminiscent of the glow of a full moon, hence the name.

The ancient Greeks and Romans believed that this crystal comes directly from the rays of the moon, and as such, it has been used since ancient times as a protective stone, especially while travelling through the night.

Moonstone is linked to both the Crown and Third Eye Chakra, making it a powerful stone for improving one's intuition and for connecting with one's subconscious.

It is beneficial for Cancerians suffering from clouded thoughts as a result of self-doubt. It is also a crystal of self-expression and is helpful for times when you struggle to tell people what you want or need from them. A lot of people struggle with this, especially when it comes to issues within relationships.


Opal is a crystal that has been revered since ancient times. It is both metaphysical and physical properties, particularly for its iridescent "play of light." Physically, Opal is a beautiful stone, just staring into the rainbow of colours that flashes within the crystal even with the slightest movement and change in angle can leave you mesmerised.

Opal comes in different variations and colours, ranging from colourless, violet, green to orange, white, pink, red, and yellow.

Opal is associated with the zodiac sign Cancer due to having hydrous silicon dioxide with high water content. Cancer's element is water, and as such, Opal is considered to be one of Cancer's zodiac birthstones.

The healing crystal Opal is known for boosting creativity, memory, recall, and connecting to one's highest self. It is a transformation crystal - as it brings to light issues that you may have buried deep inside you and allows you to see through them. It enables you to transform negative energy into positive energy, or at least shine a bit of positivity into darker areas of your life. This is important for Cancer's who, despite being adaptable, tend to hold onto resentment when they feel like they have been wronged, especially by family members.
