Red Jasper is like that kid in school that everyone knows but no one really talks about. It is such an iconic stone directly link with the 1st/ Root / Muladhara Chakra yet finding good articles to really dive and discover this crystals grounding properties are rare. I myself, rarely speak about this stone but when I added into my life I always find my life becomes more prosperous, and not because of the stone attracts wealth but because my thoughts and energy become so grounded and focus that I am given a space to thrive.
With this stone being so iconic and essential I really wanted to write a piece that elevated the beauty of this stone. I had the pleasure of exploring this stones power when working with the Root Chakra in last weeks blog. So I wanted to use this time to write about how this stone works with the Zodiac signs, especially since this stone is the star in our Cancer bar, Moonlit Harbor. Jasper is associated with the astrological signs of Leo, Virgo, and Scorpio, the planet Mars, and the element of fire. But also is an amazing stone for Cancer, Aries and Taurus signs too. I am going to walk us through each sign and how it benefits everyone differently.
Cancer: Cancers can be nurturing, but when in need themselves, they tend to close off. Red jasper is very beneficial for building your stamina, helping you overcome adversity to be a stable support system for your loved ones. Red jasper can help you to come out of your shell and remind you to take time for yourself.
Virgo: One of your negative characteristics as a Virgo is that you tend to be less inclined to open your heart to others. Connecting to a supreme nurturer like red jasper grounds you and keeps you centered.
Scorpio: Red Jasper works for Scorpios by absorbing negative energy and bringing the Scorpio person a good measure of joyfulness, as well as relieve anxiety, and bring youthful happiness to the often solemn and serious-minded Scorpio people.
Leo: Leo is a strong-hearted leader with energies of being the king or Commander. Their energies align with the generative organs and the heart. They are dominant, quick to love, big hearted and protective. Balance your Leos energies by keeping Red Jasper near by.
Aries: The balance searched by the sign of Aries lies in accepting feminine principles within, feel gratitude, slow down, and understand the consequence of each action made. The best crystal to balance the sign of Aries is the pure and simple Red Jasper.
Taurus: One of the best stones for Taurus is Red Jasper, which aids in your ability to be a strong leader. Taurus sun signs are often soft spoken, but Red Jasper gives you the confidence to find the courage and personal power within yourself to lead and achieve your dreams.
