One of the many strengths of Cancer is their divine connection to their intuition. A stone that enhances this energy is Blue Calcite. This luminous stone is healing to the spirit, cleansing to the energetic field, and powerful in promoting inner peace. Cancers may feel drained or even overwhelmed by the outside world, so it is important to have a self-care practice at home. Blue Calcite should be present in the sacred home space to bring balance back to Cancers.
Hematite is another powerful stone of importance for Cancer. This crystal is an ore of Iron, which helps circulation in your body. The more our blood flows, the more we circulate new energy.
