Astrological Birthstone Blog: Aries and Taurus

By: Christie Tucker

Did you know there are several different birthstones for each astrological sign? They contain different vibrations that can be characteristic of an individual born under that particular “Sun sign”. As you may know, we are under the sun sign of Aries until April 19th which is the Ram, the Adventurer of the 12 signs and is also the first sign of the 12. They are known as daring, active, courageous and energetic. However, the sun sign is only part of an individual’s astrological chart, which many people are not aware of. Your sun sign is just the tip of the iceberg in Astrology. When someone asks you, “What is your sign” we usually reply with the sun sign. This sign describes your basic nature, and personality traits that remain pretty constant through the ups and downs of life. It is the image you shine to the world, and the truest innermost part of you.  Each person actually holds many other signs under their chart depending on when and where they were born, and where the planets and moon are positioned during the exact moment of that person’s birth. We all hold a moon sign, a rising sign, a Mars sign, a Venus sign, a Mercury sign, a Jupiter Sign, a Saturn sign, a Uranus sign, a Neptune sign, a Pluto sign and a North Node Sign. But this piece of writing isn’t about that, it’s about gemstones of course!

I was excited to recently learn that each sign is represented by several gemstones. Here is a list of birthstones that we carry here at Epiphany Bead and Jewelry studio that have different vibrations/energies within the Aries/Taurus sign. Let’s first start with Aries since we are currently under an Aries Sun. The Aries Sun reigns from March 21st up until April 19th. I will explain a little bit about what each gemstone promotes!


AMETHYST- Amethyst is a natural tranquilizer, it relieves stress and strain, soothes irritability, balances mood swings, alleviates anger, rage, fear, anxiety, sadness and grief, and dissolves negativity.  Amethyst activates spiritual awareness, opens intuition and enhances psychic abilities.  It has strong healing and cleansing powers.  Amethyst encourages sobriety, having a sobering effect on overindulgence of addictions.  It calms and stimulates the mind, helping you become more focused, enhancing memory and improving motivation.  Amethyst assists in remembering and understanding dreams.  It relieves insomnia.  Encourages selflessness and spiritual wisdom. Amethyst is representative of the crown chakra.

AQUAMARINE- It is often used to enhance spiritual communication and clear communication blocks. Aquamarine is also used to align all of the chakras and enhance the aura. The metaphysical properties of Aquamarine make it an excellent stone for the spiritual initiate.

AVENTURINE- Aventurine is an all-around healing stone with benefits for the lungs, liver, sinuses, and heart. Use Aventurine to loosen and release negativity and energy blockages, including disease. Some wear or carry Aventurine to increase intelligence, perception and creativity.

BLOODSTONE- Bloodstone is used to purify and detoxify the body. Great at grounding negative energy and cleansing the body, Bloodstone brings love into any situation and helps ground the negative energies surrounding that issue.

CITRINE- Citrine warms, cleanses, and energizes.  Highly protective, Citrine makes a great tool for transmuting negative energy.  Citrine heightens self-discipline, attracting professional success and wealth.  Most often associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra, Citrine can also be used to cleanse all Chakras.  Citrine will help support the energy of a family environment at work or at home.

EMERALD- Emerald brings loyalty and provides for domestic bliss. It enhances unconditional love, unity and promotes friendship. It keeps partnerships in balance and can signal unfaithfulness if it changes color. Emerald stimulates the heart chakra, having a healing effect on the emotions as well as the physical heart.



BLACK SPINEL- Since it activates the Root Chakra, black spinel can deliver soothing sense of calmness for those who face such challenging situations. This crystal is a lovely tool to help relieve depression and reduce stress while inviting more positive energy and calm energy inside the body, mind and spirit.

CARNELIAN- Used in ancient times to protect the dead in their journey to afterlife, Carnelian helps to calm the fears about death and rebirth, bringing serenity and acceptance of the great cycle of life. Carnelian is a powerful Sacral Chakra Stone. It increases personal power and physical energy, gives courage, and boosts creativity and compassion. Wearing or carrying Carnelian can enhance vitality and will, providing higher energy needed when approaching new projects and dreams.

KYANITE- Kyanite has a calming effect on the whole being, bringing tranquility.  It encourages psychic abilities and communication on all levels.  It drives away anger, frustration, confusion and stress and helps to provide a capacity for linear and logical thought.  Kyanite provides a stimulating energy, encouraging perseverance in and support of activities and situations which would normally reduce one’s strength.  It can help when connecting to your spirit guides.  Kyanite induces dream recall and can promote healing dreams.

RHODONITE- Rhodonite is a stone of Grace and elegance. It decreases anxiety while increasing attention to detail. It works beneficially on the heart chakra, opening one to unconditional love and increased service to mankind. It is a stone of inner growth as well, and helps with self-love.
