Stones and Crystals for Scorpio Zodiac Energy
Scorpio Basic Information:
Date Duration: October 23 to November 21
Sign Quality: Fixed
Planetary Ruler: Pluto, Mars
From October 23 to November 21 the sun is in Scorpio. Symbolized by a scorpion and ruled by Pluto, Scorpio is full of enigmatic and fiery energy, which is why it is often mistaken as a fire sign, when it is in fact a water sign. During this period when the Sun is in Scorpio, everyone will be exposed to Scorpio’s energy regardless of their sign.
How Scorpio’s energy affects you depends on your personality and your ability to adapt to change. Fortunately, there are stones and crystals that can help you during Scorpio season. Whether you want to take advantage of Scorpio’s enigmatic energy to pursue new ventures, finish important projects or you want to ward off some of the negative aspects of Scorpio’s energy, these stones and crystals are specifically attuned for Scorpio’s energy. While they have a special affinity to those born under Scorpio as these are their birthstones, they can benefit everyone else as well especially during this Scorpio season.
Scorpio’s sign quality is fixed, as the sun aligns with it in middle of Autumn in the northern hemisphere. Its primary planetary ruler is Pluto, although in ancient times it was associated with Mars. In modern astrology, however, Pluto is associated as the planet that rules over Scorpio.
As Scorpio is symbolized by a scorpion, the sign is often misunderstood by others as having duplicitous traits, just like in the fable of the Scorpion and the Frog. While Scorpios can seem calculating at times and often seek control in most situations, their actions don’t necessarily come with malice. In fact, Scorpios are known to be very intuitive, a quality that most water signs share.
Since Scorpio has a higher vibrational frequency compared to calmer signs like Virgo, its energy can also sometimes feel overbearing and dominating, something that is attributed to the sign’s desire to hold power and control. While seemingly negative, these traits are actually what make Scorpios succeed at most of their endeavors, it’s also what makes them such great leaders, as they are natural-born strategists.
A Closer Look at Scorpio's Character Traits
Passionate, hardworking, and persistent, Scorpios are loved for their incredible work ethic and their bravery. Scorpios don’t cower in the face of adversity, they use their strategic ways to find a way out of difficult situations. They are also great debaters, they are not afraid to engage in debate even with people who hold considerably more power than they do.
Scorpios are often misunderstood because of their sign and while they do tend to be calculating at times and they only play to win, they are also some of the most loyal people you’ll ever meet. Scorpios make for great friends; having a Scorpio on your side is definitely an ace. They will defend you no matter what and you can be sure to get some of the best advice from a Scorpio friend or family member. However. you do not want to make an enemy out of a Scorpio, as they tend to sting when you least expect it especially when they feel like they have been betrayed or slighted. Scorpios value loyalty and the truth above all else. They have a penchant for finding out the truth no matter the cost.
While Scorpio’s are enigmatic trailblazers, they also tend to display a very calm and collected demeanor, which makes it difficult for others to read their minds. Some people see Scorpios as mysterious, secretive people because they don’t often show their hand, especially to those who aren’t part of their inner circle.
Scorpio’s deep passion doesn’t just apply to their work, it also applies to their romantic relationships. They make for great partners as they are intuitive and empathic, however, they do have a tendency to be suspicious and jealous at times, as loyalty is at the forefront of their value system.
While they tend to be regarded as mysterious by some people, Scorpios are actually very sociable and find it easy to make friends, perhaps because of their eloquence and easy charm. Their suspicious nature, however, can hold them back from forming lasting relationships, depending on the situation.
On their good days, Scorpios are full of energy and are easy to get along with, but they do have days where they suffer from clouded judgment and tend to be suspicious of the people around them. If you’re a Scorpio, then you probably already know that this duplicity in your personality can be exhausting to deal with not just for you, but for the people around you.
If you want to boost your positive traits and temper your negative ones during this period when the sun is aligned with your sign, we recommend the following stones and crystals during this season. They are beneficial not just for Scorpio-born people, but for everyone else as well, as Scorpio’s energy affects not just those born under the sign but every other zodiac sign as well.
1. Golden Yellow Topaz
Golden Yellow Topaz, sometimes referred to as Imperial Topaz, is a stone that has been revered for thousands of years because of its beautiful golden color.
When polished into gem quality stones, it exudes elegance and luxury as it shines a vibrant yellow color. It is one of the primary birthstones for Scorpio and also one of the two birthstones for the month of November.
As a stone of the Solar Plexus Chakra, Golden Yellow Topaz helps with any issues relating to how we see ourselves. It is a particularly useful stone to use during Scorpio season as it is a manifestation stone. It allows us to accept our strengths and weaknesses so we can focus on our strengths to turn our goals into reality. Like Citrine, it is a stone of abundance, as it helps shine some light during darker days so we can assert out personal will and do what must me done to achieve our goals.
Golden Yellow Topaz is an excellent stone to turn to for Scorpios who are dealing with self-doubt, self-esteem issues, and clouded judgment, as Topaz in general is a powerful aura cleanser and allows for the free flow of Life Force energy or Chi within the body.
Wear Golden Yellow Topaz as jewelry whenever you feel like you need a boost in confidence or meditate with it when you feel the dark clouds of doubt hovering over you.
Topaz is also known to promote fidelity and foster great friendships, something that the sometimes mistrustful Scorpio needs whenever they feel negative feelings like jealousy.
As a manifestation stone, Citrine helps boost one’s personal will, allowing you to achieve your endeavors and manifest your goals into reality.
With its pale to vibrant yellow color, Citrine not only motivates, but also helps bring out the sunnier side of your personality. A particularly useful stone for Scorpios and those who want to take full advantage of Scorpio’s passionate energy, Citrine boosts Scorpio’s already strong drive and passion for work while absorbing negative energies whether within ourselves, from others, or from our surroundings. It is a must-have for anyone who wishes to pursue new ventures or capitalize on existing ones.
Citrine resonates with the Solar Plexus Chakra, which helps with issues regarding the self. It boosts self-confidence, self-esteem, and other issues relating to how we see ourselves.
Turn to Citrine whenever you feel self-doubt or when you need a boost in creativity and energy to finish new or ongoing projects.
Wear Citrine as jewelry in the form of a necklace or bracelet, and place Citrine clusters or loose stones around your home to absorb negativity. Citrine is a self-cleansing crystal so you don’t need to cleanse it after use, making it particularly useful to wear as jewelry and to use around the house for eliminating negative energy.
Rhodochrosite is an excellent stone for Scorpios because it tempers some of their major weaknesses and negative traits, especially when it comes to their personal relationships and how they deal with other people.
While highly intuitive, Scorpios tend to succumb to feelings of jealousy when it comes to their romantic partners. Rhodochrosite’s beautiful dark pink color makes it a powerful stone of unconditional love, something that Scorpios need to learn especially since all they want is peace and happiness in their relationships.
Rhodochrosite resonates with the Heart Chakra and tempers the stubborn and mistrustful nature of Scorpio’s personality. It is a powerful stone that promotes love, harmony, and happiness in your personal relationships.
Turn to Rhodochrosite when you feel excessive feelings of jealousy and anger starting to take over your emotions. It is an excellent meditative stone whenever you feel negative emotions directed at other people. You can also wear it as jewelry in the form of a necklace close to your heart so you can feel its loving vibrational energy wherever you go.
Sodalite is a calming dark blue stone with splashes of white on the surface. The coloration is a result of banding Sodalite, a variety of feldspathoid, with other minerals. It resonates with both the Throat and Third Eye Chakras.
Like most dark blue stones, Sodalite promotes clarity of thinking, which makes it perfect for the trailblazing Scorpio who often feels the need to accomplish as much as they can all at once. It is often called a stone of logic as it enhances intellect, memory recall, and intuition.
Aside from promoting clarity of mind, Sodalite is also an excellent calming stone for Scorpios who can sometimes easily succumb to strong emotions like anger and jealousy. It balances these excessive energies and in its place, leaves a feeling of calm and peace. Aside from neutralizing negative emotions, Sodalite is also known to be a powerful amplifier of positive energies you want to keep in your life.
As a stone of the Throat Chakra, Sodalite promotes effective communication and speaking your truth, which is especially beneficial for Scorpios who tend to engage in debates or those whose line of work involves communicating with groups of people.
Meditate with Sodalite whenever you feel excessive emotions, as it will help bring you to a calmer, peaceful state of mind. You can also wear it as jewelry especially if you’re particularly sensitive to the strong energy that Scorpio season brings.
Labradorite is a beautiful blue stone that showcases multiple flashes of color when polished. The Inuits believed that the stone is of extraterrestrial descent. It is revered for its powerful magical properties, which allows one to seek higher planes of thought, to go beyond the logical mind and delve deep into one’s subconscious and connect with the Divine. It is also a stone of transformation, as Labradorite shines some light into the hidden truths you keep deep inside of you, allowing you to see beyond the tangible and logical and into hidden realms.
Labradorite perfectly matches the energy of Pluto, which heavily influences Scorpio’s personality. Pluto is a planet that holds within it many mysteries, but is also regarded as the revealer of truths and the planet of rebirth and transformation, just like Labradorite.
Labradorite resonates with the Throat and Third Eye Chakras. Wearing Labradorite as jewelry is particularly helpful especially when you want to express yourself clearly to others. Labradorite also helps temper the negative aspects of your personality and is overall, a very soothing stone to wear or meditate with. It is also a powerful stone for warding off negativity and when used for meditation, it allows you to discover hidden aspects of your personality and subconscious mind.
As I mentioned earlier, Scorpios heavily value the truth and would often go through any means to find it. Labradorite is an excellent stone for the truth-seeker in you, as it more than just promotes mental clarity, but allows you to connect with your subconscious mind as well.
While Scorpios tend to seem closed off and ambivalent to people who don’t know them well, they are actually very emotional people. Like most water signs, Scorpios, while highly intelligent and intuitive, tend to act on strong emotions before thinking their actions through. This is perhaps one of the sign’s greatest weaknesses. Amethyst’s pale to deep purple color and calming energy is the perfect stone for Scorpio’s emotional side.
Amethyst resonates with the Crown and Third Eye Chakras and as such, it is a powerful stone to boost one’s intuition and ability to connect to the subconscious mind. It tempers excessive energies, which is why it has long been used since ancient times as protection against intoxication and addiction. It helps calm the mind, body, and spirit, allowing for a more peaceful existence.
Since Scorpios tend to be energetic, often taking on too many projects at a time, Amethyst guides you to a more relaxed state of mind whenever you need to unwind but feel like you can’t. You might think you can take on any number of projects and commitments at the same time and while your persistence and hard work often leads to success, taking on too much at a time can lead to burnout.
Turn to Amethyst whenever you feel like you need take a step back, whether from your professional endeavors or the multitude of strong emotions you tend to feel and succumb to.
Wear Amethyst as jewelry in the form of a necklace or bracelet to keep you calm when you feel like your emotions are getting the best of you. It’s also an excellent stone to ward off negativity.
You can also place an Amethyst cluster or loose stone in your bedroom or any place in your home you spend the most time for relaxation. If you suffer from sleep problems like insomnia, place an Amethyst crystal near your bed where your head rests or underneath your pillow; it works as a natural sleeping aide and helps ward off nightmares.
7. Rose Quartz
Part of the Quartz family that includes Citrine, Amethyst, and Smoky Quartz, Rose Quartz is another powerful healing crystal that is beneficial for Scorpio’s energy. Its pale pink color resonates a very calm, loving, and generous energy. It is a stone associated with the Heart Chakra and like Rhodochrosite, it promotes unconditional love of all kinds.
Rose Quartz is especially useful for Scorpios because it opens their hearts to love. This powerful crystal of love opens your heart not just for receiving love but also giving it. Scorpios, while passionate lovers, tend to be jealous and suspicious of their partners, which is why it often takes them awhile to find the perfect match, as they tend to be stubborn and suspicious when in a new relationship. However, once the ice breaks and Scorpios open their hearts to love, they dedicate themselves completely to their partners.
Rose Quartz is also a useful stone for fostering love in all of your relationships, it allows you to develop long lasting friendships, as it opens your heart to other people.
In addition, Rose Quartz is an excellent stone for healing of emotional wounds, particularly those caused by other people, whether in past romantic relationships, friendships, or even emotional wounds caused by family members.
Turn to Rose Quartz to cleanse your Heart Chakra, whenever you feel like you need help in opening your heart to giving or receiving love. Wear it as a necklace or bracelet or meditate with it especially when you are having trouble in your relationships or whenever you feel negative emotions towards those close to you.
It opens your heart to forgiveness and unconditional love, which is particularly helpful if you’re the type to expect too much from your relationships but have trouble expressing what you want. Scorpios sometimes have trouble expressing their emotions and what they want from people, which can cause rifts in relationships due to misunderstandings. Wear or carry Rose Quartz with you when you feel like you have trouble showing or expressing love to people you care about.
Aquamarine is a mesmerizing pale blue-green stone, reminiscent of the ocean when the water is clear and calm. Its name is derived from the Latin “Aqua Marina” which means “sea water”. It is an exceptional stone for Scorpios, as both are associated with water. Its energy is calming and soothing, and is perfect for the overly active Scorpio. It is also the perfect stone for people who are particularly sensitive to the high vibrational frequencies of Scorpio’s energy, especially those prone to anxiety.

The stone has been used since ancient times as a protection stone especially by sailors when traveling on water. It is an effective protective talisman during travel and it helps those who have travel-related phobias, as well as other types of phobia.
It also helps boost courage and in manifesting goals, traits that Scorpios are already born with. As a stone of the Throat Chakra, Aquamarine also helps with self-expression, something that Scorpios sometimes have trouble with especially when it comes to expressing themselves in more intimate situations. In addition, this beautiful water stone also helps boost intuition and helps guide those who seek the truth.
Wear Aquamarine jewelry by itself or paired with other matching crystals when traveling whether by sea, air, or road for protection.

Turquoise is another pale blue stone that emits a very calming and soothing energy. It has been used since ancient times by various civilizations as a protective talisman.

Turquoise is a stone associated primarily with the Throat Chakra, which helps Scorpios who have a tendency to keep their thoughts and feelings hidden from others, sometimes even those closest to them. It helps with expressing oneself, allowing you to communicate effectively with wisdom and logic rather than emotions. Turquoise can strengthen your relationships as it helps you let go if inhibitions that keep you from fully expressing yourself to those close to you, allowing others to gain a better understanding of your thoughts and emotions.
Wear Turquoise as jewelry to welcome good luck in your both your professional personal life. You can also meditate with it or carry a tumbled stone with you to help alleviate stress, anxiety, and depression.
Chrysocolla is an enchanting stone that showcases splashes of blue and green intermingled together to form a beautiful work of art that’s reminiscent of the earth itself when viewed from outer space. Like other blue-green stones, it resonates with the Throat and Heart Chakras, which helps boost effective communication, peace, openness, and love.
It is considered by many to be an effective stone for teachers and musicians, but perhaps its most powerful property is its ability to help with different kinds of communication. Chrysocolla also helps boost compassion and fosters forgiveness, which helps strengthen your bond with the people closest to you.

Wear Chrysocolla as jewelry such as in the form of a necklace close to your throat or as a bracelet paired with other crystals that emit the same energies to help you communicate your thoughts and feelings effectively and help other people understand you better.
As one of the most effective stones for communication, Chrysocolla helps people think before they speak out and use their words with wisdom and compassion at the forefront rather than strong negative emotions, whether when engaging in friendly debate or when making your point come across clearly during an argument.
Mookaite is a type of Jasper that comes in hues of deep reds, tawny, pale yellows, and whites, often intermingled together in various patterns in one stone. Mookaite has a very earthy vibe to it and further enhances the grounding properties of Jasper.
Its chakral association depends on the dominant color of the stone, but the colors that Mookaite usually showcases mostly resonate with the Root, Sacral, and Solar Plexus Chakras.
Mookaite is an excellent grounding stone for Scorpios who tend to feel emotions too deeply. It is also an excellent stone for emotional healing, as it helps one delve deeper into their minds and hearts to explore the source of negative emotions and emotional issues. Scorpios tend to hold onto a lot of different emotions, a habit which is both mentally and emotionally exhausting. Mookaite allows you to open yourself up so you can investigate the cause of the feelings you hold onto so you can let go of what no longer serves you.
It is also an excellent stone for balancing emotions and tempering excessive ones. Mookaite helps you remember your roots, keeps you grounded and in sync with the earth’s gentle vibrations, and allows you to connect with your body on a much deeper level.
Wear Mookaite as jewelry such as in the form of a necklace, bracelet, or earrings, depending on the dominant chakra, as it will help clear your head, open yourself up to new experiences, and allow you to let others into your life. You can also meditate with it whenever you feel stressed out or when you feel like your head is in the clouds to keep you grounded.
12. Smoky Quartz
Another variety of quartz, Smoky Quartz is perhaps one of the most effective crystals when it comes to warding off negative energy and turning one’s luck around. It belongs to the same family as other quartzes like Citrine, Amethyst, and Rose Quartz. It is associated with the Root and Crown Chakras and is an excellent grounding crystal.
Scorpios tend to hold onto a lot of different emotions and more often than not, it’s the negative emotions that have the strongest pull. Smoky Quartz is an excellent crystal to use for emotional healing and for cleansing a place of negative energy.
Place Smoky Quartz clusters or loose stones all over your house to absorb all kinds of negativity. You can also sprinkle Smoky Quartz chips all around your house, preferably outside, to keep negative energy from coming in and to welcome positive energy, good luck, prosperity.
You can wear it as jewelry or carry a stone in your pocket, especially when going to places that you feel are particularly toxic to you, or when interacting with people you don’t agree with, as it will keep you calm while keeping the negative energy around you from affecting you.
These stones are beneficial for Scorpios all year-round, but they are particularly useful during Scorpio season as it is during this period when the sign’s energy is strongest. If you’re a Scorpio, you might find that this period can highlight some of your best traits and as such, it is a great time to start a new venture, finish that project you haven’t found the energy to finish yet, or open yourself up to new relationships. However, you should also be weary of the negative aspects of your personality. Use the crystals listed above to temper your worst traits so you can open yourself up completely to new experiences and opportunities.
For those whose sign isn’t Scorpio, these stones and crystals are beneficial during Scorpio season especially if you want to take advantage of Scorpio’s high energy to take on new projects or accomplish certain goals. They are especially useful for those who feel lethargic during this time of year, as temperatures start to cool in mid-autumn. And if you’re particularly sensitive to these energies, turn to the calming stones listed above to help soothe anxiety disorders and other strong emotions this period might bring out.
We recommend wearing these crystals in the form of jewelry and meditating with them when you want to boost certain aspects of your personality, as their energies have a stronger impact with direct skin contact especially when used or placed near or on their associated chakras.
