Zodiac and birth stone

Most people know that there is a particular gemstone, or birthstone, associated with the month of their birth, but did you know that our zodiac signs have also long been linked to semi precious gemstones?  In addition, each sign, as well as some birth months, have several possible associated birthstones, which is why stones are often referred to as “having an affinity with”, rather than being specific to a particular birth month or zodiac sign.

 

What are the benefits of wearing your birthstone?

 

Birthstones are said to have healing properties. Wearing them may help release the blockages in the physical, mental and spiritual stage. It is believed that these supernatural gemstones have the power to focus the healing energy of the planet on your body through contact, this leaves you more relaxed and composed.

Birthstones are known to direct the energy of the earth to you and hence help you concentrate with a  better and more stress-free approach. All in all, it helps in relieving the negativity and strengthening your spiritual self.
