Astrology Birth Stones
Baeldorn and Pathwalkah were discussing
how they don't like their month birth stones so I thought I'd
list the astrology birth stones as alternative choices. I've
listed the traditional and newer stones and I've also listed
the important colors for each sign. I think this is as important
when choosing a stone to work with an astrology sign. The color
listed as symbolizing that sings true "self" I've
put it first in bold. The colors listed below are secondary.
The colors to be avoided as bad for the sign might be worth
looking at too, although I'd say that if you are drawn to these
colors in clothing or stones it might just mean you want to
get some balance in your personality.
Aries - fire,
or garnet red white
avoid browns and khaki
Taurus - earth,
or emerald greens rose pinks
or crystal yellow blues
Cancer - water,
or mother-of-pearl silver
or silvery blue white, silver grey, pale gold,
Leo - fire,
topaz and ruby gold sun colors from white,
through yellow and orange to red
avoid grey and black
Virgo - earth,
sardonyx, jade or sapphire orange
or blues navy, pale greens
avoid neon colors and bright yellow
Libra - air,
white opal or jade rose pink
or pastels blues from powder blue to ultramarine, emerald green
avoid dark purples
Scorpio - water,
black opal or aquamarine dark reds maroon, blue green
Sagittarius - fire,
or lapis lazuli purple all blues, turquoise
Avoid yellow browns
Capricorn - earth,
turquoise, amethyst, onyx, malachite browns, dark greens, dark
grey, black, indigo
avoid bright colors
Aquarius - air,
or amethyst electric blue turquoise, violet
Pisces - water,
or tourmaline lavender sea green, pinks, lemon
avoid orange and orange red
You forgot to mention that you were complaining about your birthstone
heh I looked briefly through it and realized
that none of it was what I knew. I found my handy dandy list
and was ready to post it when I reread your post. You were listing
ALTERNATIVES. Good thing I double checked huh? If you want me
to post the "classic" list, let me know.
Oooops, forgot that! Please
post your list. The more info the better, I think.
you Crow Woman. Does hematite count as a black stone?
I was thinking about that
myself. I'd say it seems more like a dark grey to me.
are the "classic" birth stones. I cut it out of a
dept store flyer because I could never remember them.
April: White Zircon or diamond
May: Emerald (weird I know- keep thinking emerald is March myself)
November: Citrine or topaz
December: Blue Topaz
Feel free to add any common substitutions to this list.
Probably a silly question
but in the colors to avoid is that only in stones or those colors
Not a silly question at
all. The colors were meant just as colors to avoid. I was the
one who added them thinking about stones. They are colors that
are supposed to have a negative effect on the star sign, but
I'd say if you're drawn to a color or a stone you already know
that it's not going to have a negative effect on you. So I'd
just take them as a bit of interesting guidelines, but not a
cast in stone (giggling at pun) rule.
I liked the pun The reason
I was wondering actually is that I'm a cancer and I dislike
red stones and always have but I like dark reds in other things.
Hi Tink, I'm amazed how often people like/dislike colors
related to what's negative/positive for their sun sign. I'd
say red stones (especially bright reds) would be draining for
a moon-based water sign Cancer.
Additional astrology info, just
to confuse everyone with MORE choices!

things. LOL I wear an aquamarine its my birth stone from
the classic list. By the way loved those stone puns!!
