The Best Crystals for Virgo
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Virgos are most known for being a bit over-analytical and they can have a tendency towards being perfectionists. But they are often determined, very loyal to those that they love, and don’t back down from a challenge.

It is PERFECT for Virgos that tend to be over-analytical and need to calm their minds so they can be more present.

Howlite is a beautiful white stone that gives off a peaceful energy, like a gorgeous snowy day filled with beauty and silence. Howlite’s main purpose is to help with inner peace and patience.
