The Best Crystals for Cancer Sun Sign
Cancer June 21- July 22
And now for the best sign, I mean MY sun sign- Cancer! Cancers are well known for being emotional, empathatic, and moody which is pretty accurate. We’re also very family oriented and loyal to friends.
Rainbow moonstone has been one of my personal favorite crystals for a long time now. I am a moonchild (can you tell? Sassy Moonchild! haha) and I LOVE all things moon related. I was drawn to moonstone and I feel like it’s been one of the biggest helpers for me. It is a very balancing stone, and it’s gorgeous! Since the Cancer sign is so associated with the MOON itself, of course moonstone would be a very helpful crystal for us.
Rainbow Moonstone Properties:
- Allows energy to flow through ALL of our chakras, and can align all chakras
- Helps with aligning the mind and body
- Supports mental clarity (so it is great for brain fog sufferers)
- Increases intuition and psychic abilities
- Supports you during new beginnings and transformations
- Brings peace and clarity, and can help with self-expression, creativity, and spiritual growth
- PERFECT stone for empaths
- Helps you to find your purpose in life and can support you in creating your own destiny
- Can help with sleep when placed under your pillow at night, or placed on a nightstand

Since Cancers are very empathatic and emotional, we tend to absorb a LOT of negative energy from people around us. Grounding stones like Shungite can help with protecting us from this negative energy as well as protecting us from EMFs. Shugnite is helpful for supporting all 7 of our physical chakras so it’s a great overall crystal.
- It’s about 2 billion years old!
- It can absorb negative energies, and purify your body of negative energy
- Shungite is the only natural material to have powerful antioxidants called fullernes. Shungite has been researched because of this component and it earned scientists a Nobel Prize! That’s huge!
- This stone can only be found in one place in Russia, so it’s very rare
- It’s a very helpful stone for grounding, relieving stress, helping insomnia, and healing the root/base chakra
- It is one of the best stones for protecting the body from EMFs- and SO much more affordable than most of those trendy items that claim to do the same

If you live in the Northern Hemisphere then you might tend to think of SUMMER when you think of the Cancer sign. Cancer starts a day after the Summer Solstice, so I have always associated my birthday with the coming of sunshine and happiness. And that is exactly what I feel when I see orange calcite- the SUN! It is such a bright, sunny color and looks like summer in a stone. It is only associated with Cancer as a sign too, so it has extra powers for us.
Orange Calcite Benefits:
- Supports the solar plexus and sacral chakras
- Can help with healing fertility issues and supporting a healthy reproductive system
- Helps with getting sexual energy to flow more freely- the more our sexual energy is flowing, the more our creativity and life force increases
- Brings more confidence and increases self esteem
- Helps us to manifest and create our own reality more effortlessly
- Can help with gut healing
