Mystical Crystals author Cerridwen Greenleaf has written a new blog post on how use your birthstone to bring protection and positivity into your daily life- learn more here.
For centuries, gemstones have been assigned as symbols of image and identity. Countries have national gems. The signs of the zodiac and the twelve months of the year, as we know, have special stone correspondences, as do the planets. These systems were established long ago by the earliest astronomers and scientists. Even the twelve apostles had special stones assigned to them with sacred meanings! The very gates of heaven are covered in precious gems, according to lore and religious rites. According to the Bible, God’s own throne is made of red jasper.
Birthstones carry a long and cherished history and tradition, and you contain your stone’s energy through your right of birth. See how you can bring more of that birthstone magic into your life. For example, if you are an Aquarius, wear your garnet birthstone to help put you more in touch with your emotions and enhance your relationships at home and at work. If you are a typical travel- happy Sagittarius, now you know your birthstone is specially equipped to protect you when you are far away from home. For romantic Libra women, your opal is a “man magnet.”
Study up! Aside from adding sparkle to your appearance, your birthstone is surrounding you with magic that you can access to your advantage each and every day. If you don’t have one, think about giving yourself your special and sacred birthstone as a birthday gift!
