9 Most Helpful Crystals When Starting a New Job (And Why)

It’s one thing to find a new job, but when comes the first day on the job you want to ensure you make a good impression. A friend recently asked me what crystals I would recommend for her new professional beginnings, and I’m sharing my list with you. 

Here are the 9 most helpful crystals for your first day on the job:

  • Moonstone
  • Carnelian
  • Quartz
  • Tiger’s Eye
  • Howlite
  • Citrine
  • Blue Lace Agate
  • Amazonite
  • Labradorite

Different healers will recommend different crystals for any given issue and you may wonder why that is. Are they just making it up? No, they are just choosing different qualities to energize with a selection of crystals. 

Let’s look at the qualities we want to manifest when starting a new job and which crystals will help energize them.  

What You Need When Starting a New Job

A new job is a new beginning, in many ways you can decide to be a new you. You can approach it from two opposite mindsets: try to fit the mold as best as possible to be liked by everybody, or be the best version of who you already are, staying true to yourself. 

The crystals I recommend in this post are for the latter option. They cover three types of qualities I think are most important for new professional beginnings:

  • Your inner grounding: be confident, calm, and courageous
  • Your impact on the world: be decisive, creative, motivated, and articulate
  • Your good fortune: luck is an element of success too!

Moonstone is the stone for “new beginnings.” It is excellent when starting anything new in life, including a new job. It helps soothe your stress and promotes emotional stability, which you will need when there is much to learn in a new company. It also improves your intuition and inspiration in professional matters.

Carnelian is a stone of vitality and motivation. It gives you courage and energizes the Sacral (2nd) Chakra, unlocking the creativity you will need on a new job. It encourages you to trust yourself and your intuition, and protects against apathy. 

If you’re feeling nervous for your first few days, you can pair it with Jet Stone to overcome your stress and anxiety.


Quartz is an amplifying crystal and a master healer. It regulates your energy and will help with concentration and memory. More importantly, as a crystal enhancing awareness and wisdom, it supports you showing up fully as your best self, taking the center-stage of your life. 

Of particular interest for a new job, Quartz increases inspiration and creativity. It is truly a gemstone to have handy for new beginnings.  

Tiger’s Eye

Tigers Eye is a stone of protection and courage. It is excellent to have with you when initiating any intimidating endeavor. As a protective stone, it will shield you from negative energies at work, dispel fears and help you stay grounded and centered.

It is also a stone of mental clarity. It assists in focusing the mind and approaching problems objectively. It helps you bring insight into complex situations.  

And if that wasn’t enough, Tiger’s Eye is also said to bring good fortune in professional endeavors. 


Howlite is a calming stone that will help you make smooth transitions while staying true to yourself. It absorbs negative energy and helps with reducing the stress and anxiety that can arise from the expectations of a new job. It might even help with insomnia if your mind tends to run amuck at night. 

As a calming stone, Howlite promotes patience and relieves anger. It will help you communicate without emotions clouding your mind when situations get a little charged.   

Blue Lace Agate

Blue Lace Agate is the stone of authentic communication and relationships. Connected to the throat chakra, it encourages you to speak your truth without antagonizing people. More generally, it helps with positive communication, promoting your assertiveness and your own personal power. 

Blue Lace Agate is also a grounding stone in the face of emotional turmoil. It helps you stay grounded when feeling angry or frustrated, but not by repressing these emotions. Instead, it supports the inner clarity needed not to let these powerful emotions take over. 


Amazonite is a stone of courage and success in new endeavors. Associated with the throat and heart chakras, it will encourage you to step forward and take risks in alignment with what you truly want. 

It is a crystal calling for action so be ready to embrace new challenges. Amazonite will be there supporting you, bringing you courage and stimulating your natural talents. 

Amazonite is also said to have a calming effect on the nervous system. It can soothe emotions and help you bring more love to your interactions. 


Labradorite is a stone of independence and clarity. It sharpens your intuition and encourages you to be more confident taking action, expressing what you feel, and following your inspiration. 

It promotes independent thinking and inner clarity, ultimately calling for you to express your full potential at your new position.

Because it encourages you to express your inner truth, Labradorite also enhances creativity and inspiration. It’s especially valuable for artists but any endeavor can benefit from fresh ideas and out-of-the-box thinking. 

Labradorite is also known for its protective energy. It can shield you from negative energies such as jealousy, preventing other people’s opinions from influencing you.

Citrine is the stone of the lucky merchant. It is best known for bringing professional success and luck in business matters. It is a stone of prosperity and overall shines very positive vibes. 

Citrine is also said to bring optimism and joy, which will bring the motivation you need to accomplish your professional goals. And as a variety of Quartz, it has similar qualities as a magnifier and amplifier, which will help solidify your intentions. 


You don’t need to have every single one of these stones to experience benefits at your new job. Feel free to pick the ones that most resonate with you, that you find most appealing, or the benefits of which you think you need most. 

These crystals will provide a helpful boost to your new career, and you can also choose some from that list if you’re preparing for job interviews or starting a new business.  

At the end of the day, crystals help magnify qualities that are already within you. Remember that many people who succeed in their new career have never even used a crystal. You can totally do it!
