It’s Aquarius Season! January 20 through February 18 is Aquarius territory. Are you an Aquarius, or do you have a special Aquarian in your life? If so, you may recognize these defining traits that are characteristic of people born under this Uranus- and Saturn-ruled sign:
- Progressive and modern
- Broad-minded and creative
- Affectionate and friendly by nature
- Attractive and popular
- Naturally empathetic
As with all zodiac signs, there are certain stones and crystals that complement and benefit this particular sign’s strengths and weaknesses. Here are a few stones that are particularly well-suited for Aquarians:
Garnet, also the December birthstone, is a grounding and protective stone that brings fire, aids with melancholy and is a symbol of love and truth. It is a powerful balancer for air and the erratic influences of Uranus, one of the ruling planets of Aquarius.
Amethyst is a stone to help assimilate new ideas and will help ground and protect empathic Aquarians. This crystal is a beautiful friend—gentle yet influential. It is also a carrier of fire and creativity.
Amber is actually a fossilized resin and not a gemstone. It’s a powerful healer and protects the psyche while clearing an overactive mind and promotes the release of negative energy.
Amber is warming, grounding, eases stress and fear and helps Aquarius connect with earth energy as it often contains ancient bits of leaves, insects or tree bark. Amber carries ancient wisdom that the highly intuitive Aquarius can tap into and wear when creating the new Earth.
Aquarians, don’t be afraid to mix and match your pieces. Have fun while embracing the energies of your favorite stones.
