Everything you need to know about aries
Date: March 21 to April 19
Planetary ruler: Mars
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, which is fitting because Aries’s energy is bursting with independence, adventure, and action. People with a lot of Aries in their chart tend to be doers, with multiple projects on the go at any time, and incredibly competitive (with their peers and themselves). Bursting with confidence, they are apt at making decisions and taking (sometimes calculated) risks.
They have an energy and passion for life that is infectious and fuels them to progress toward their ambitious goals. There’s a strong masculine influence to this sign brought by the planet Mars, and many people with this placement will need to balance this with the softening and receptivity of the feminine.
As a fire sign, their passion can quickly turn into rage, and you don’t want to be on the receiving end of this explosion. Tempering this fire and channeling it toward positive outlets is a key lesson for this sign, as well as slowing down and creating space to reflect and be present in the moment instead of mindlessly jumping into the next task or decision.

17 Best crystals & stones for aries
The first crystal on this list is Aries’ birthstone, diamond. Diamonds are created through intense heat and pressure below the surface, taking 1-3 billion years to form naturally. This strength and resilience make them a fitting crystal and birthstone for Aries.
Diamonds are stunning and help the wearer tap into frequencies of strength, beauty, grace, and magnetism, and can bring good fortune (when sourced ethically, of course). This stone serves as a reminder that your power is within you and to shine brightly each day.
Diamonds also radiate waves of healing, stability, and balance, all of which can help to soothe the hot-headed nature of Aries and bring them back to love. They can also help promote mental clarity and focus, which is perfect for strategizing and prioritizing their many projects.
Aquamarine is a blue-green stone connected to the throat chakra that can help calm and clear your mind, free you from anxiety, and help you express yourself with more clarity and confidence.
This is one of the best crystals for Aries, who have a habit of speaking before thinking. It can boost intuition and self-awareness and act like a sprinkling of water soothing raging flames.
3. Red Jasper
Next up on our list of crystals for Aries is Red Jasper, which connects to and unblocks the root chakra, providing grounding, stability, and a sense of security. The energy of Aries can be concentrated in the higher chakras, so this crystal offers balance. It can bring you out of your head and into the lower parts of your body.
Red Jasper is also great for amplifying strength, energy, and endurance, key traits for Aries. This stone will provide the bounty of enthusiasm and zest needed when you’re on the go and paving the path toward your goals.
Bloodstone also helps to heal and balance the root chakra. It can boost confidence, courage, and vitality—powerful for anyone looking to tap into their inner strength and “charge” forward.
If you’re an Aries stuck in your head often, Bloodstone can help ground you back down to earth. It is also said to improve physical aspects such as blood circulation and detoxify the body.
One of the best crystals for Aries is Amethyst—a purple-colored stone overflowing with peaceful, dreamy vibes. This stone is ideal to work with when starting a new project or business as it will boost your intuition, promote temperance, and enhance your creativity, all while cleansing negative thoughts.
If you struggle with being impulsive or running into everything like a ram in a china shop, this crystal will soothe and mellow you in just the right dose.
Aries tend to be enthusiastic, passionate, high-energy souls, but often this comes with a lack of focus and grounding. Sardonyx is an Aries crystal that can help you contain and channel your energy in directions that benefit you and the work, projects, and people that matter most to you.
It can also help you overcome any fear or insecurities around your skills and ability to achieve your goals and help you fulfill your true potential and reach the highest evolution of your soul.
Citrine is a golden yellow, honey-hued crystal that can have a powerfully positive impact on the success you experience in all areas of your life, particularly your career and wealth. It’s also great for getting rid of negative, stagnant energy.
Aries people often have quite a rigid, overwhelming, fiery personality that rubs people the wrong way. Citrine can help to improve relationships of all kinds and attract more love and sunshine into your world.
8. Green Aventurine
Green Aventurine is a soothing stone connected to the heart chakra. It can help us cultivate more self-esteem, acceptance, and confidence, which is essential for Aries to pave their unique path in this world and boldly move toward their dreams.
This Aries crystal is also said to bring luck and prosperity—work with this stone next time you launch a new offering in your business, apply for a new job, or give an important presentation at work.
Carnelian is a crystal frequently linked to Aries because of its fiery yellow, orange, and red tones and its ability to boost energy levels and transmute negative energy into positive vibrations. This stone can instill a sense of confidence and motivate us to take action toward our soul desires.
Carnelian also has a balancing quality and can ease anxiety and hesitation and boost mental clarity.
10. Clear Quartz
Clear Quartz is a popular crystal used to cleanse, purify and heal the mind, body, and spirit. But it’s a powerful stone for strengthening clarity, focus, and determination, which can help Aries warriors achieve what they set out to and keep them centered no matter what obstacles they encounter.
Clear Quartz amplifies empathy, which can help Aries become more appreciative, considerate, and aware of others while pursuing their dreams. It can also balance out the fierce, fiery nature Aries are renowned for by encouraging stillness and reflection and radiating calm waves.
11. Black Onyx
Black Onyx is frequently known as a stone of protection, used to ward off shadow eaters and dark forces that want to feed on your light. This protective energy couples well with Aries’ tendency to dive in head first to things without fully assessing the risks and can shield them from potential harm.
But this Aries crystal can also alleviate any stress or self-doubt that weighs you down and serve as a reminder that you are powerful and worthy of everything you dream of. It can add a healthy boost to self-esteem, which may be what you need to overcome a challenge and move forward with renewed optimism and belief.
12. Fire Agate
Passion and courage are two gifts innate to Aries, and Fire Agate is a crystal that amplifies these. It can boost creativity and help you magnetize positive energy into your world. If you tend to be excessive with your energy, desires, and ambitions, this stone can soothe and prevent you from overdoing it and reaching burnout.
Fire Agate can also open your mind and help you see new possibilities, ideas, and ways of living and leading, which is a welcome breath of fresh air to the rigidness that often inhabits Aries.
13. Rose Quartz
Rose Quartz is another popular stone known for its frequencies of love and beauty. This stone can help you heal matters of the heart and reach a new level of openness in your being that allows you to connect on a deeper level to joy, people, and possibilities.
This is a powerful Aries crystal because it oozes with feminine goddess energy—the perfect compliment to the fiery, masculine energy that Mars brings to this sign. If you’re constantly doing, going, and busy, you are likely starved of the feminine. Working with Rose Quartz can help you tune back into the frequency of the feminine, heal feminine wounds, and cultivate a balance between your head and your heart.
Hematite is another grounding crystal that can help to temper the abundance of energy Aries often has and prevent impulsiveness. Working with this stone can foster focus so that energy can be channeled in the most productive, thoughtful way and serve your highest good and the highest good of all.
Hematite is another crystal connected to the root chakra and offers grounding and physical and energetic balance.
If you struggle with mental or physical health issues, or even sluggishness or lethargy, Sunstone is one of the best Aries crystals to combat this and promote vitality and joy. This stone is connected to the sacral chakra, which can benefit your creativity levels and inspire your next big move.
Pyrite is a gorgeous, shimmering gold stone that will add a dash of sparkle wherever you go. It boosts inner strength, stamina, and leadership—natural Aries gifts—that will instill the willpower you need to achieve your dreams and fulfill your potential.
Pyrite is a crystal that will set your soul on fire, help you rekindle your greatest passion, and infuse you with a zest for life. So if you’ve been feeling anxious, stagnant, or depressed recently, this stone can help you out of that funk and inspire you to take action.
