The primary stone of Capricorn is the garnet, so now’s the time to pull out your garnet jewelry and put it to good use. Good things to focus on with Capricorn stones are authority, responsibility, and success, and our relationship to those qualities.
Authority: the power to determine, adjudicate, or otherwise settle issues or disputes; jurisdiction; the right to control, command, or determine.
Hmmm. That’s a sticky one, huh? It can be a bit too intoxicating for some and repulsive for others.
My favorite quote on authority came from my high school drama teacher. She always reminded us to “Walk in with authority” when making an entrance. To tell you the truth, it works in real life a lot, too. Find your authority. You don’t have to pull up your Inner Bully to exercise it. Just find it.
The pictured stones are in my personal collection, but they’re not the only stones suitable for Capricorn or Saturn. You’ll find various stones mentioned by different websites and authors of crystal books. I guess it just goes to prove that nothing is written in stone. 😉
Stones associated with Capricorn’s colors of navy blue and black can work just as well. I subscribe to the school of personal symbolism ~ if it has meaning for you personally, it can help.
I’ve come across the following meanings for the stones in my Cap collection:
- Dalmation Jasper ~ for lessons in disillusionment, encourages grounding, to ease a sense of fear
- Green Aventurine ~ ease in changing careers, increases independence
- Calcite ~ an excellent stone for grounding
- Leopardskin Jasper ~ to ease inclinations toward being judgemental
