Each planet has its own set of crystals that are associated with it. These planet crystals can help you attune with each planet’s energies.
According to ancient studies of astrology, each planet has different energies, both positive and negative, that can affect us. The effects of the planets on us can be known from a Natal Chart, which tells us the position of the planets in the Zodiac signs and houses as of the time of birth.
The effects of a planet on our character and personality depends on which sign the planet was in, and whether that planet has positive aspects or negative aspects.
Using Planet crystals can help us channel the positive energies of a planet and mitigate its negative energies.
Best Crystals for Each Planet of the Zodiac
Each planet is associated with certain crystals and stones that vibrate in the same frequency of that planet. Here is a list of each planet of the Zodiac, its properties, and the crystals associated with it:
The Planet of Self
The Sun represents the individual’s ego, creativity, and challenges they face.
The Sun is a powerful force, and we can use it to create energy for our lives. As the planet of authority, will and essence, the sun helps us manifest ourselves in this world. With its rays comes power that can be used as an agency or as a source of inspiration—the choice is ours. The Sun also rules over our health and well-being. The sun’s vital life force imbues us with strength, energy and a will to succeed.

Mercury is known for its quick wit, quick thinking, possibilities, opinions and reasoning. It can also be rationalizing things in a way that will seem plausible to others. The energy of Mercury can be good or bad depending on the situation but it will always feel energized.
As a planet of communication, Mercury tells us that our words are powerful and should be used to communicate effectively with others, both offline and online. So it’s time for you to embrace your inner writer, speaker, learner or communicator!
The retrograde of Mercury is a natural occurrence that happens three or four times each year and lasts about 3 weeks. It can be used as an opportunity to step away from our normal routine, do some reflection, and catch up on tasks we’ve been putting off for too long. When Mercury goes retrograde, however, our communications will be challenged. You can use the power of crystals to balance that by focusing your intentions with them before you start communicating.

Planetary Influences of Crystals and Stones
The influence over human fortunes ascribed by astrology to the heavenly bodies is conceived to be strengthened by wearing a crystal or gemstone appropriate to certain planets or signs, for a subtle emanation passes into the stone and radiates from it. Wearing a combination of several different stones, each partaking of this special quality, was believed to have an influence similar to that exercised by several planets in conjunction, that is, grouped in the same house or division of the heavens.
The wearing of the appropriate zodiac crystal was always believed to strengthen the influence of the Zodiac sign upon those born under it, and to afford a sympathetic medium for the transmission of the stellar influences. (Kunz)
How to Overcome the Negative Astrological Influences of the Planets
You can use the planet that is the ruling planet of the Sun Sign in which you were born under.
From an astrological standpoint we can also use the planetary ruler of the rising sign, which is a powerful determining factor with regard to our mineralogical affinity. Meaning that the Rising Sign in one’s chart determines which crystal or stone we have more affinity with.
If the planet Mars is afflicted in one’s natal chart, then we can use the opposite vibrations of the planet Venus which act as an antidote for Mars vibrations. This is achieved by attuning to Venus crystals through meditation, ritual or by wearing the stone as a talisman. You can also wear a piece of jewelry made with the appropriate planet’s stone and the Planet’s metal. For example, in the case of Venus, you can use any crystal associated with the planet Venus, such as an Emerald, and set it in copper – Venus’s metal.
If Saturn is afflicted in one’s Chart, you can wear a crystal of Jupiter, which is Saturn’s opposite, and acts as an antidote to the Saturnian vibrations.
You can also use a planetary crystal to strengthen the effects and qualities of a certain planet. For example if we want to help someone who is lacking energy or is weak and moody, we can use the crystals of Mars to help boost their energy. We can also incorporate the color of Mars (red) as well as the Metal (iron) for a more powerful result. (Heindel)
How Does a Planet Crystal Transmit Energy?
A crystal or a piece of crystal jewelry made on these principles acts as a focus of the stellar rays and energies of the planets it represents, and infuses the vibrations of their nature into our auras, while we are wearing it.
Each of the planets in our solar system has a corresponding crystal. These crystals have been used for centuries by cultures all over the world as symbols and talismans that remind us of their energy, beauty, and power.
The energies of each planet can be felt through its corresponding crystal. In order to align with the positive energies of a planet, you can wear its crystal on your body. This increases the chance that it will have a positive effect on you by helping you attune with each planet’s energy and avoid any negative ones.
