Many people may think that astrology is only about assigning a zodiac sign to a person which may reveal what a person looks like or might look like in terms of their attitudes, thoughts, and behaviours.
But the truth is that astrology goes far beyond that and has different points of perspective. Something that usually catches people’s attention is how gems or precious stones relate to zodiacal signs.
The truth is that a jewel, in this case, a precious stone can say a lot about a person, regardless of whether you are one of those who are attracted to the spiritual or the world of astrology.
It has been proven by many astrologers that each sign of the zodiac has a variety of gems that identify it and that the relationship between them is not just a coincidence.
Later in this post, we will find out which stones, gems, and colours belong to each sign to better understand this relationship. But first, let us ask:
Why Are Specific Gemstones Related To Each Sign?
It’s because each sign has its individual spiritual energies, each of the zodiac signs must be represented differently in order to differentiate them.
That is why each sign has its specific stones that fulfil a series of characteristics and energies that are directly linked to the base sign.
The gemstones can either enhance the positive aspects of a persons zodiac sign and/or they can help balance out the negative energies of the sign.
Why Gemstones are Person Specific and Zodiac related
It’s also worth mentioning that gemstones affect the person’s spiritual energy directly and not the Zodiac Sign.
What this means is that whilst the Zodiac Sign of a person can give a guide to the likely positive and negative influences in a person they are not an exact match.
Each person’s spiritual energy is quite unique and it is not only aligned to their birth Zodiac sign but also guided by other astrological (such as their lunar sign and planetary aspects) and non-astrological factors as well.
This is why having a chat with a professional spiritualist/astrologer can sometimes be invaluable in figuring out which gemstones would best suit you specifically.
What gemstones are helpful for which Zodiac Signs?
Ok, enough of the whys now let us look at the precious stones with which each zodiac sign is usually influenced. It is important to emphasize that all these stones can also be seen as natural gifts of the earth which contrast against the heavenly signs they represent.
