Crystals for Capricorns, Pessimism and the Overworked.
Ambitious, hardworking, practical and thorough, Capricorns are gifted with deep wisdom and a kind heart. They make incredibly loyal and thoughtful friends, workmates and partners; once they’re on your team, they will never leave you out in the cold. And don’t be fooled by the Goat’s stoic demeanour; they love creating secure, seriously luxurious (bordering on materialistic) lives and they’re not afraid to put the hours in to get it. As such, Capricorns are the pragmatic workhorses of the zodiac.
Is there an impossible deadline? A lofty goal? An uber expensive handbag/outfit/car to buy? The Capricorn will make it happen through sheer grit and determination. The hard-headed goat will never let an obstacle slow them down, literally butting anything out of the way to achieve their goals. Herein lies the problem for our ambitious friends: a total disregard for their own health as they go about achieving their Next Big Thing.
Now, for the grounded (that is, cynical), practical (pessimistic) and logical (read: no time for nonsense) Capricorn, gifting them a crystal to help heal their overworked mind and negativity tendencies might seem like a tough call. Slowing down to meditate with a powerful stone probably won’t fit into their schedule, besides, who’s got time to research all this inner healing stuff anyway? Our hard headed friends have concrete targets to smash into! Appeal to their tangible side with a statement crystal or beautiful piece of jewellery and let the stone do its magic on your Goat-headed loves.
