If we want to work with our crystals effectively, it is important that we try to understand as much about them as possible. This includes how to take care of them, for example, by cleansing and charging them the right way, but also what signs and chakras they are associated with.
By looking at the zodiac signs, we can determine if the crystal is inherently beneficial to our signs and what it can help us with. As a result, we can be more intentional when wearing or meditating with selenite.
Selenite is not a birthstone. However, it is associated with the Moon, which rules Cancer. Its abilities are particularly beneficial to Taurus and Leo.
NOTE: A crystal can be beneficial to many different people, regardless of their zodiac signs. If you’re attracted to it, there’s probably a reason for it. Don’t let this article stop you from working with a crystal that you’re interested in.

Selenite For The Zodiac Signs (Explained)
We can determine a crystal’s association with zodiac signs in several different ways: planet association, birthstones, and the crystal’s ability. Below, I’ll briefly explain each.
Planet Association Selenite
Selenite is associated with the Moon, the celestial body of emotions and intuition, which rules Cancer.
We can determine which zodiac sign matches with a crystal by looking at the ruling planet. Every crystal is associated with a planet or celestial body, and so are the zodiac signs. When we say a sign is ruled by a planet, we simply mean that this planet has more power over a sign compared to other planets.
First of all, selenite is not a birthstone, no matter which list you consult. As a result, we cannot match it to any zodiac signs according to this method.
Birthstones were created by allotting a different crystal or gemstone to a specific month. We can use this to determine which crystal is beneficial to each zodiac sign. For example, amethyst is the birthstone of February, making it the birthstone of Aquarians and Pisceans born in that month.

In the West, when talking about birthstones, we mostly mean either modern or traditional birthstones.
Traditional birthstones are rooted in The Book of Exodus, which describes Aaron, the priest of the Israelites, wearing a breastplate with 12 stones. Each stone on that breastplate related to one of the Israeli tribes and was later linked to the 12 zodiac signs.
Matching a specific stone to a zodiac sign using the traditional list is difficult, as the gemstones were described by color, not a specific stone.
On the other hand, there is the list of modern birthstones, defined by the National Association of Jewelers, based partly on the history of Aaron but also on what is widely available to American jewelers.
There are also the mystical birthstones, which have a Tibetan origin, and the Ayurvedic birthstone, which originated in India.
Birthstones are thought to bring luck to the wearer and provide it with a comfortable and familiar energy – perfect for when you are feeling a little out of place. This, of course, does not mean that you cannot wear another sign’s birthstone.

Though all signs can benefit from selenite, the ones that can use the help of this stone, most are Taurus and Leo.
We can look at the specific properties of each stone to determine which zodiac signs would benefit most from working with it. For example, a stone like fluorite is particularly beneficial to Scorpio as this is a sign that they have trouble making up their mind, and fluorite helps with decision-making.
Selenite is considered the stone of purity and spirituality.
This stone is special, as it has the ability to transmute negative energy into positive. Whereas a stone like obsidian simply absorbs negative energy, selenite immediately replaces it with high vibrations. It is a stone filled with light that helps you to connect to and balance out your crown chakra. Therefore, it is the perfect stone for those struggling to stop intrusive thoughts during meditation.
Benefits Selenite For Cancer
We connect selenite to Cancer as they are both ruled by the moon. As a result, they will find an energy with this stone that is very familiar and comforting for them.
Selenite can help Cancer by helping to regulate their emotions and making sure they do not fall into the trap of being extremely sentimental or resentful. Cancers are ruled by their emotions, which is a beautiful thing but can also cause them not to see the bigger picture.
Selenite is also associated with the crown chakra, located at the top of the head, which governs everything spiritual. This chakra allows us to look at our lives from a bigger perspective, which might sometimes be exactly what Cancer needs.

Selenite helps this sign to connect to their inherent feminine and intuitive side, allowing them to use it to their benefit instead of their detriment. As a result, sensitive and imaginative Cancer can improve their personal and work lives.
Benefits Selenite For Taurus
Even though Selenite is not a birthstone for Taurus and they are not ruled by the same planet, selenite can really help this sign. The reason for this is that Taurus is ruled by another planet filled with feminine energy: Venus. This is the planet of love, beauty, and harmony.
Selenite can help Taurus by letting go of some of the stubborn energy often associated with this sign. It allows them to be a little more flexible and less in need of perfection, which will help them to build stable relationships in which they feel comfortable.
This stone is also associated with the crown chakra, which is the energy center located at the top of the head that helps us connect to the spiritual realm. As a result, Taurus can turn to this stone when they feel in need of some guidance.
As a result, this kind of determined sign can use their strengths to benefit them instead of becoming an obstacle.
Benefits Selenite For Leo
Leo is not associated with selenite as a birthstone or the Moon. In fact, it is associated with the exact opposite planet, the Sun, the ‘planet’ of passion, ego, and action. Of course, neither planet is better, and we need both, but a good balance between the two is desirable.
As it is ruled by the sun, Leo is stereotypically a sign filled with masculine energy. This means they are action-oriented and confident people. However, just like with every other sign, there is also a flipside to this. Leos can find themselves unbalanced, causing them to become dominant and even a little self-centered.
Selenite helps Leo to balance out this masculine energy with the feminine energy of the moon. As a result, they will feel more calm and relaxed. It will help them not to make rash decisions and instead take a second to think about the options. As a result, they will be able to make more deliberate choices that will benefit them. It also allows them to be a little more patient so they can use their passionate and courageous energy to benefit them.
As a result, they will be able to let their best qualities shine and use their wise, generous, and determined side to their benefit.
