I have selected the Astral gemstones based on the characteristics
of each Sun sign. However, if you do not identify strongly with the
characteristics shown, it may be that the Sun is not the main
influence in your birth chart.
In this case I would suggest that you check out the other signs and
choose the gemstones for the characteristics you most identify with
or wish to enhance within yourself.
Leo Characteristics - ambitious, extroverted, optimistic, honourable, dignified, confident,
conventional, proud, dramatic, leader, charismatic and flamboyant
I have chosen tiger’s eye as the primary gemstone for Leo to encourage positive
expression of the Leo characteristics. Tiger’s eye enhances passion, courage, willpower
and the correct use of power. It allows you to see clearly and brings balance and
grounding without dulling the senses. It is a very protective gemstone and gives you the
ability to make dreams come true by helping with practical decision making. Leo will
appreciate the influence from this gemstone in the area of life involving wealth as it helps
to provide the stability required for a healthy bank balance. Tiger’s eye will increase
vitality, creativity and self-confidence which in turn will encourage personal achievement.
This gemstone is also thought to protect against curses.
Secondary – Sunstone
I have chosen sunstone for Leo as it is connected to the power of the Sun which is the
ruler of this sign. Sunstone is a protective gemstone as it gives extra energy when needed
by enhancing the power of self-healing in times of stress or sickness. This gemstone is
said to increase your powers of attraction and helps you to have a positive effect on
others. Sunstone brings good luck and happiness. It promotes leadership skills, self-
discipline and helps with decision making. Sunstone is also useful when connecting with
spirit guides or for any other type of spiritual work. It is also thought to have been used by
the Vikings for navigation.
Opposite - Hematite
Hematite promotes calm reasoning and mental clarity. For Leo this is useful as they can
let pride and ambition cloud their judgement. Hematite enhances self control, memory
and intellect, reduces stress and encourages intuition. It transforms negativity into love
and so helps to create loving relationships. It balances mood swings and provides inner
happiness in their place. Hematite is said to make your hopes and dreams come true
through your own efforts if you allow yourself to be guided by your intuition. It is important
for Leo to listen to their intuition when carving their path in life as they can tend to do
things just for show. Hematite is the primary gemstone for Aquarius.
