What are the best crystals for Leo zodiac sign? Leo energy is strong here at Rock Your Worth (our founder is a Leo), so we were curious about what crystals help those under this astrological sign. Those born from July 23 to August 22 fall under the Leo zodiac sign, and there are specific crystals that can help them harness their power. Represented by the Lion, Leos are confident, loyal, fun-loving kings and queens of the zodiac jungle.
What You Should Know about the Leo Zodiac Sign
Warmhearted and vivacious, Leo has a passion for life, fun, and luxury. Leos ooze charm and charisma, value self-awareness, and relish a good time. Because they are a fixed fire sign, they can also be rigid and inflexible, especially when they are chasing a goal with tunnel vision-like determination.
What are some of the strengths of the Leo zodiac sign?
Leos are fearless leaders. Charismatic Leo always takes charge when given the opportunity to lead. Leo leaders are brave, protective, and self-confident. Experts at creative problem-solving, Leos thrive in an environment where they can build something from the ground up or bring structure to chaos.
Leos are the life of the party. Leos don’t just steal the spotlight; they are the spotlight. Fun-loving Leos play as hard as they work, bringing their meticulous attention to detail and friendly competitive spirit to every social event. While this is mostly a positive trait, it may conflict as Leo’s sun-bright personality can easily overshadow less dominant zodiac signs.
Leos are passionate. Like all fire signs, Leos are passionate about the things (and people) they love. But unlike reckless Sagittarius or domineering Aries, Leos communicate their passion with clarity and easy. For better or worse, you will always know where you stand with a Leo—their practical and sincere nature insists on it.
What are some of the challenges of the Leo zodiac sign?
Leos are ambitious, sometimes to a fault. Always on the lookout for an opportunity to lead, Leos can butt heads with equally strong personalities; or worse—steamroll those who are less confident or extroverted. This can make rigid Leos appear insubordinate, controlling, or even bullyish.
Leos are high-maintenance. Simply put, Leos can be a lot. Extremely social and always on the go, Leos like to draw attention to themselves. Their love of bright colors, travel, and luxury make naturally make them the center of attention.Leos also have a flair for the dramatic, which can grow tiring.
Leos straddle the line between assertive and aggressive. Like their constellation namesake, the Lion, those born under the zodiac sign of Leo have a bite that matches their roar. Those who cross Leo should expect to go toe-to-toe with Leo’s brute stubbornness, which rivals that of even bullheaded Taurus.

Shimmering red-black, like a burning coal, Ruby appeals to Leo’s passionate side. Known for bolstering confidence and sense-of-self, Ruby also increases awareness, protection, and courage.
Sun-ruled Leos will appreciate Carnelian’s brilliant red-orange coloring, which mimics the solar hues of sunset.
