As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries is the most demanding and competitive of them all. If you know an Aries (or if you are an Aries), you know they’re a bundle of Mars-driven energy and ambition. Aries are irresistible and adorable, which makes them popular, admired, and successful—except for when they’re self-sabotaging their own efforts, that is. Yeah, they get bored and distracted real easy.
These bold fire signs can be innocent and naive at times, because they assume that everyone is as passionate, wholesome, and driven as they are. In fact, they can be too trusting. Part of Aries’ journey in life is to learn to read other people better and to trust their own instincts.
These rams also tend to be more insecure than their warm, assertive exterior would betray. They worry about what people really think of them more than anyone would ever guess. They just want to be loved! Everyone talks about Virgo as the zodiac’s perfectionists, but Aries has this tendency too.
Whether you want to show your favorite Aries that you appreciate their best qualities or you’re an Aries who’s looking to tame your worst ones, let me introduce you to the ~Aries Crystal Tool Kit~. For centuries, people have believed that these stones and gems have properties that can help you overcome your insecurities, feel at peace, and just be happy in your own skin. Some say that certain stones can even provide psychic protection when you’re in danger of being taken advantage of by a sneaky star sign (hello, Gemini, Libra, and Scorpio!).
Think of crystals as sparkly helpers that remind you how to live your best life. Here, we’ve picked out the ones that are the best fit for Aries’ energy.
