Physical: Rose Quartz may be used to soothe burns and reduce blistering if rubbed lightly with a polished stone or used as an elixir. It may also be beneficial in diminishing the appearance of unsightly scars. Use as an elixir to clear the skin, reduce wrinkles and promote a soft complexion.
Emotional: Rose Quartz is a stone for those unable to experience the joy of living because of never having had love given to them, possibly missing the love and nurturing as a child that is vital for the development of security and a positive self-image. Rose Quartz is the healer for these internal wounds, erasing the primal imprints and reprogramming the heart to accept the infinite source of love that comes from within the self. Only after learning to give love to the self is it possible to truly love others.
Spiritual: Rose Quartz is feminine in tone and one of the stones of the Great Mother. It not only activates the human Heart Chakra, but it also links with the heart of the Earth and the heart of the Universe. Its vibrations can penetrate down to the cellular level and reprogram cells for joy and longevity rather than despair and death. It encourages the dissolution of anger and resentment, fear and suspicion, and brings the Light of healing, the rebirth of hope and faith in the benevolence of the Universe.
With its fire energy, Rose Quartz is the color of richness and luxury in traditional Feng Shui. However, too much red leads to restlessness and overstimulation. Use scarlet and red with caution – they are best as an accent and accessory. Use red and scarlet crystals in rooms in which children play, and freely in rooms where energy levels are focused on activity. Dining rooms and kitchens benefit from red crystals. They allow the free flow of energy that is important in these areas. Avoid using red or scarlet crystals in the East, or Southeast of your home. The best areas are the North, Northeast and Southwest, and South.
Rose Quartz, with its light red color, is one of the natural birthstones of those born in mid-autumn (October 22 - November 20). Red crystals bring you energy, courage, passion, and love.

Scorpio is represented by a scorpion and is known as the Success sign. Scorpios are complicated, independent, and creative with a sense of humor. They are excellent leaders and sometimes a bit competitive.
Rose Quartz is also said to strengthen the romantic ardor of Taurus and Libra's determination.
Meditating with Rose Quartz assists one in reaching a resonance with the frequency of compassion, releasing emotional patterns that hold one back, and allows for embracing higher and finer frequencies of Light.
