Read on to learn about your zodiac birthstone!
Aries (March 20-April 19)
Diamonds complement the nature of these natural-born leaders. The diamond transmits fearlessness and fortitude, and it brings one to enlightenment. This stone also calms the erratic temper of an Aries.
Taurus (April 20- May 20)
Emeralds bring luck to the Taurus, who keeps them near. They symbolize Venus, the ruling planet of Taurus, and the governess of love. This brings growth and fertility either physically or figuratively to the wearer’s life.
Gemini (May 21- June 20)
Symbolizing the duality between joy & sorrow and life & death, the pearl perfectly fits with the double-sided twin. Gemini can often struggle with authenticity when seeing things from two perspectives, and the purity of this stone brings all truth to light. Pearl also helps focus the attention of this often torn zodiac.
Cancer (June 21- July 22)
Moonstone highlights compassion and kindness in the sensitive Cancer. It draws energy from the light of the moon and the tide of the ocean, bringing order to the fluctuating emotions of the crab. It also amplifies their intuition and nurturing nature.
Leo (July 23- August 22)
The lion’s passionate nature roars loudly, making them both loyal and prideful beings. The peridot makes a perfect Leo birthstone as it enhances the heart chakra’s influence on their warmth and generosity while stifling back the arrogance. This stone also enhances Leo’s natural creativity.
Virgo (August 23- September 22)
The practical and dependable virgin hides their vulnerability with their stubbornness. The brilliant blue sapphire drowns negative energy in its depths, purifying the Virgo and its surroundings. This radiant stone amplifies Virgo’s loving nature and wisdom, creating a flow between heart and mind.
Libra (September 23- October 22)
Opals increase cosmic consciousness, which aids in a Libra’s naturally diplomatic tendencies. This stone also offsets their self-pitying nature and transforms the energy into self-worth. The clever and down to earth scale balancer will also find more creativity and originality in the presence of opal.
Scorpio (October 23- November 21)
Topaz tends to bring luck to the scorpion. The stone of peacefulness calms the aggressive nature of a Scorpio. They may find it beneficial for meditation and psychic abilities.
Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)
The wild Sagittarius also wears Topas well. The stone calms their fire, keeping them vibrant and in control. Blue topaz will also complement the cheery optimism of a Sag.
Capricorn (December 22- January 19)
The disciplined goat can sometimes get a bit pessimistic. Garnet works well as a Capricorn birthstone as it encourages gratitude, which offsets the pessimism. This stone also brings out the stoicism of a Capricorn through higher thinking.
