Why Leos and Cancers need rose quartz

Why Leos and Cancers need rose quartz

The semi-precious stone of rose quartz is regarded as a healing crystal and the stone of unconditional love with particular influence over the birth signs of Cancer and Leo. 

It is thought that the stone emits powerful vibrations of love, supporting emotional and relationship healing, inspiring compassion and boosting feelings of peace, calm and self-appreciation.

What is rose quartz?

Rose quartz gets its name from its delicate pink colour, which ranges from very light (almost white) to medium-dark hues.

It owes its delicate pink colour to microscopic inclusions of aligned silicate mineral fibres which probably crystallised as the host gem cooled. They are aligned according to the crystal directions of the rose quartz.

These inclusions give rose quartz its characteristic cloudy translucence. It is usually cut into beads and cabochons, polished but unfaceted. Sometimes, the inclusions produce a six-rayed star if the fashioned gem is cabochon-cut and correctly oriented.

Where does rose quartz come from?

The finest-quality rose quartz comes from Brazil but it is also mined in India, Madagascar, and Sri Lanka.

It is typically found in pegmatites, which are coarsely crystalline outcrops of granite or other igneous rock. It also occurs naturally in hydrothermal veins which were formed millions of years ago when hot water percolated from the earth’s crust, carrying with it a variety of exotic and precious crystalline forms. 

How does rose quartz influence Cancerians?

Cancerians will find the stone of love intensifies feelings of the heart. It stimulates compassion, understanding, and kindness, and is one of the most effective stones for attracting love and self-confidence, self-respect and self-appreciation. 

Rose quartz helps enhance patience, forgiveness and acceptance – something sensitive Cancerians often find difficult, especially if they’ve been the victims of betrayal or infidelity.

How does rose quartz influence Leos?

Leo, an ultra-confident and spirited fire sign, might appear to be the least likely zodiac sign to suffer from issues of low self-love, self-confidence and self-esteem, but in truth, those born under the lion often struggle with negative emotions, perhaps because they are so passionate about putting their myriad ideas and plans into practice and making them work.

Rose quartz can help Leos aspire to, and achieve, strong emotional balance when they need it most. In Leos, it will empower self-expression and self-control while amplifying compassion for others and emotional synthesis.

How does one harness the magical power of rose quartz?

Rose quartz has a gentle vibration that anyone can tap into, making it a great crystal for beginners, whether you acquire a piece of jewellery, rough-cut gemstone, or highly polished bead.

When you feel emotionally low, hold a piece of rose quartz or rose quartz pendant at the heart chakra, located at the centre of the chest, and visualise a nourishing, warm, pink light consuming your body. 

You will feel a glow from within and you will find the experience quickly transports you to a place of warmth, peace, calm and contentment. 

If you feel like you need a little extra emotional balance in your daily life, wearing an Angel Whisperer Powerful Stone Rose Quartz Crystal Pendant Necklace or Angel Whisperer Powerful Stone Rose Quartz Pearl Pendant Necklace each day can help you gain confidence and feel more grounded.
