BIRTHSTONES

BIRTHSTONES

There are twelve signs of the zodiac; Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.

I am constantly being asked – during the course of  my workshops and seminars – to recommend an appropriate stone which corresponds to a particular birth sign.

In my experience the only accurate way in which to ascertain the correct birthstone  for any individual is for that person to visit a properly qualified astrologist and for a detailed chart to be constructed based on the person’s place of birth, date of birth and the exact time of birth.

Any other method is too vague and generalized; and most certainly cannot possibly be considered seriously!

A few years ago, to prove my theory, I carefully read as many books as I could lay  my hands on which contained information relating to the astrological use of gemstones.

From all the information available I then compiled my own comprehensive list, birthsign by birthsign, encompassing all the ‘recommended’ birthstones which each book suggested would be appropriate for each sign of the zodiac.

When my task was completed I discovered that every birth-sign had at least nine gemstones which, according to all the books, would be suitable for people being born under that particular sign of  the zodiac…..

However, using my own intuition, logic and a little common-sense, I managed to produce the following chart which I find useful as a guide (and a guide only!) when I am asked to recommend a particular gemstone for someone’s birth-sign:

Aries
- jasper, ruby

Taurus
- rose quartz, lapis lazuli, carnelian, sapphire

Gemini
- citrine, rock crystal, tigers eye, agate, rutile quartz.

Cancer
- olivine, emerald, moonstone

Leo
- quartz crystal, diamond, agate

Virgo
- carnelian, agate, jasper, sapphire

Libra
- emerald, aventurine, jade, sapphire

Scorpio
- garnet, bloodstone, ruby, jasper, beryl

Sagittarius
- topaz, jacinth, obsidian snowflake

Capricorn
- smoky quartz, ruby, onyx, jet

Aquarius
- turquoise, malachite, aquamarine, moonstone

Pisces
- amethyst, opal, moonstone

Whilst it is always acceptable to give a friend – or your loved one -  a birthstone  pendant or necklace, please remember that the stones that will work best for you – or your friends – are the ones whose ‘vibrational energies’ are most closely compatible with the person who is going to wear it!

Venus in Aquarius

Venus in Aquarius

Love gets more intellectual … and electric!

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff on the topics of venus, love, astrology
Love is unpredictable, but knowing a little Astrology can give us insider information about what path passion will take. By tracking Venus, we know that the next few weeks with When Venus enters Aquarius on March 5, 2014, it’s an ideal time to free yourself to love, or to love more openly within your relationships. The planet of love and desire in this sign of idealism and creativity puts an unconventional — even experimental — flair on romance, and opens our minds about how and who we love.

While Venus is in Aquarius, it’s easier to see that there truly are no rules in romance, making this the perfect time to question your long-held beliefs about relationships and revise what isn’t working for you. Explore the idea that there are many levels of intimacy beyond sex; Aquarius strives to bring out the best in us and our interpersonal connections.

Consider the intensity of affection you feel for all the people in your life. Aquarius’ optimistic approach can point out better ways to strengthen our social connections and express our feelings in more interesting ways. If you’re single, look around — there may be potential partners you’ve overlooked! Someone you’ve previously written off as “just a friend” could be your perfect match. Because Aquarius is a somewhat philosophical sign, this is also a great time to ask yourself whether you truly want a significant other, or simply a lover.

If you’re happily coupled off, you might find that you and your sweetheart feel a lot freer to be individuals within your relationship. If neediness has been an issue for you, Venus in Aquarius makes it clear that pursuing your own passions separately enriches what you bring back to the relationship.

Do keep in mind that Aquarius is more about the head than the heart, so if you notice less sentimentality floating around in your relationship, have no fear — it’s a natural side effect of Venus in Aquarius. But while you and your partner (or love interest) may be doing more conversing than cuddling now, expect the unexpected: Aquarius likes to keep things spicy and unpredictable, and passionate Venus definitely won’t argue!

Let’s Get A Jump On The Week Ahead – Weekly Astrology: March 2-8, 2014

Weekly Astrology: March 2-8, 2014

Turn your frown upside down this week!

Maria DeSimone Maria DeSimone on the topics of venus, mars, astrology

The week may not begin on a happy note, especially when it comes to romantic and partnership matters. Is there any hope at all?

Of course! But you’ll have to wait until Wednesday, when love planet Venus moves into friendly Aquarius.

Sunday, March 2: Venus in Capricorn square Mars Retrograde in Libra and Saturn Retrograde

On Sunday, Venus in sober Capricorn will be at odds with Mars Retrograde in Libra. This incompatible combination between the cosmic lovers might leave you feeling as if you’ll never find the middle ground between you and your sweetie that you hope for. In business relationships expect a gridlock alert!

On the same day, Saturn will turn retrograde, where he’ll remain until July 20. Over these months it’ll be a good idea to retrace your steps around career moves and goals. This will especially apply to partnerships and other collaborations until May 19.

Monday, March 3: Sun in Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn

On Monday, there is a light of hope in the sky. The Sun in Pisces will be at a friendly angle to Pluto, allowing you to transform an inspired project in a way that allows its light to shine through.

Wednesday, March 5: Venus in Aquarius

Matters of the heart and friendship get a jolt on Wednesday, when love planet Venus moves into Aquarius, where she’ll remain until April 5. Now, the way to your heart is through camaraderie. Friends first will be a must, but it’s also possible that you’ll be more attracted to those who reveal their humanitarian side more easily. You might work on a group endeavor that has the capacity to benefit the masses, and as you do so you just might meet someone who makes your heart swoon.

Because Aquarius is ruled by tech-savvy Uranus, Internet dating will be a popular way to meet someone special. You might also notice a greater amount of flirty remarks on your Twitter feed!

Thursday, March 6: Jupiter Direct

Then, Jupiter turns direct on Thursday, and you’ll feel like luck is once again on your side. Ah, that’s exactly where it should be!

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, February 27th

We are reminded that we’re each part of a larger community now that the Moon is visiting humanistic Aquarius. We want the clarity of logic to rule our lives today, but we can’t fully detach from our feelings with the Sun in compassionate Pisces. Still, nothing is gained if we over-personalize our emotional responses to the circumstances we face. Cultivating a more global approach to solving our problems is the best strategy for the time being.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your friends and associates show up in unexpected ways today, making life easier for you. With their assistance, you’re able to solve nearly any problem, even those that have plagued you for a while. In turn, you can lend your positive spirit to helping others or organizing social activities. Host an event or jump into a group discussion where you can interact with interesting people who are sharing intriguing ideas. For now, it really might take a village to fulfill all of your needs.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

There’s no reason to be too concerned if you’re not fully appreciated at work today. In fact, it may not be the best time to ask for the recognition you deserve. Reflect carefully on the ramifications of your actions before stating your needs. You could be overly sensitive now, so it won’t take much to stir self-doubt about your career aspirations. Nevertheless, it won’t help your cause if you take things too personally. Keep a positive attitude; today’s optimism leads to tomorrow’s success.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Your inventive mind can take you nearly anywhere today; it’s up to you to decide your destination. Although others may lift your spirits with their good ideas, don’t spend time with people who are overly serious now. A lighthearted engagement is more consistent with your present frame of mind, so find someone who is witty enough to keep up with the intellectual games that you love so much. Just remember you can play until your heart’s content, but at some point you’re going to have to get down to business.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

A bit of relationship drama is likely today because your emotions may be somewhat erratic. It’s challenging to get a handle on the situation because you might not feel like you’re standing on solid ground. The rules are in flux now, making this a poor time to hold onto the status quo. Be courageous and open your heart to new ways of connecting with others. Take a deep breath and prepare for positive change.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Visitors may come and go unexpectedly, filling your day with surprises. There seems to be fewer limitations on how you communicate with others today, allowing for possible breakthroughs in relationships. If you believe the time is right, take a risk and say what’s on your mind. Thankfully, you can create new rules for sharing your life with someone you trust; all it takes is a little imagination now and the confidence to move forward. Let your heart lead the way.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You’re inspired today by an ingenious approach to a work project, a hobby or even a task at home. All you have to do is release the old and tired way of doing things to make room for new and improved ideas. Entertaining all possibilities prevents you from becoming bogged down in an unnecessary dispute. Remember, getting the job done now is more important than determining who’s right.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

It’s playtime today, whether you do something fun with kids or get in touch with your own inner child. Silly games, creative endeavors and romantic pursuits are all appropriate now as long as you allow yourself to bask in the pleasure of being alive. If you are under too much pressure, take a break to breathe deeply. Even a short walk will do you good. Anything that creates movement and gets oxygen into your lungs also brings fresh hope into your heart.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

An apparently unresolvable emotional issue may slow you down today. Surprisingly, you can see progress once you realize that you really do have more choices than you thought. You might not be thrilled with the current options, but any decision you make now is better than none at all. Ultimately, it’s crucial to keep moving forward. Even if you’re still unsure about your new direction, change for the sake of change will do you good.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Feed your current taste for unconventional activities now by stepping off the beaten track and exploring the territory outside your familiar haunts. Even if you’re hesitant at first, once you get going you won’t want to look back. Sweep away old cobwebs that have settled into your life by steering clear of worn-out patterns and people who don’t have your best interests at heart. Out with the old and in with the new.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Although you usually don’t mind it when other people lean on you, it may be particularly annoying today. Others trust you because they assume you’re not going to follow a crazy notion on a whim. Nevertheless, it doesn’t seem fair that everyone else is free to be weird and off the wall while you are expected to be the stabilizing influence who holds down the fort. However, you might just surprise someone now by acting out of character in order to restore a bit of balance to the relationship dynamics. You deserve to have some fun, but don’t rebel just to prove a point.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You’re probably feeling quite moody now that the emotional Moon is visiting your sign. You’re itching for change and it may be difficult to restrain yourself with logic today. If you try to stay in the same old groove, something or someone is likely to come along to shake up your world. Ultimately, it’s more exciting to pick your own adventure instead, so don’t wait; break new ground now while you still have the chance. You can’t go wrong if you follow your heart.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may be able to see exactly what you want but it’s as if you’re standing outside a closed store, longing for what’s on the other side of the window. There are so many enticing goodies and it’s frustrating that you can’t put your hands on them right away. But instead of getting hooked by the impossibility of the situation now, simply observe the images for future reference. Today you’re planting seeds that will grow when you water them with positive actions later on.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for February 27th

Stop, look and listen! Back in our calendar on February 3, the information was provided that the largest asteroid — Ceres — would be making a station at 2 degrees of Scorpio and turning retrograde today. That time becomes official at 12:09AM and all Ceres themes — agriculture and gardening, Mother Nature, parent-child and mother-daughter relationships, food, diet and nutrition, productivity and scarcity of natural resources — are accentuated around the exact time and for most of today. [Ceres will remain in reverse until June 1 when it will turn around and go direct at 19 degrees of Libra.] Adding to today’s potency of this important asteroid is its supportive, 60-degree link to Pallas in Virgo (11:21AM). Problem-solving and strategic thinking go hand-in-hand.  One day before Mercury makes its shift to go from retrograde to forward motion, the Moon unites with the Messenger of the Gods planet in Aquarius (12:02PM) — offering a few early benefits concerning communications, correspondence, literary and educational interests. The fine arts, film classics, inspired musical compositions and sacred dance are high on the agenda as the Moon parallels fantasy-prone Neptune (3:08PM).  This day ends on a cautionary note as the Sun parallels Mars (11:21PM) — giving you ample warning of the switcheroo by the red planet on Saturday March 1 when Mars in Libra stops and turns retrograde until May 19. Watch out for overnight discord and volatility that can wreak havoc on the home front. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Moon Sign Compatibility

Moon Sign Compatibility

When it comes to finding love, look to the Moon

Tarotcom Staff Tarotcom Staff on the topics of moon, love, astrology

When it comes to love, your Moon sign can help you meet your perfect match! After all, the Moon represents your true  emotional  side and the way you react to others in your relationships.

Your Moon sign is determined by the presence of the  Moon  in a particular zodiac sign at the time of your birth.

Astrology’s four elements (Earth, Fire, Water, Air) greatly help to determine your  Moon sign  compatibility, as the qualities within each element help  define the  person you are today and what you may be looking for in a  partner.

Moon in Aries

For you, it’s  all about “cut to the chase.” Quick-thinking and  straight-to-the-point,  you exude confidence while taking an active  stance in almost any  situation — Aries is a pure Fire sign  through-and-through! According  to Moon Astrology, you are your closest  match! Yes, a fellow Aries  would suit you well, as the two of you could  find romance while  playfully competing with one another. Bold and  strong-minded Fire sign  Leo also makes a match, while more sensitive  Moon signs Cancer or  Scorpio, do not.

Moon in Taurus

Taurus is known  for its stubborn nature, making it difficult to cut  through your  strong-will … especially in romance. But beyond that,  there’s a lover  of luxury and comfort (love goddess Venus rules over  you, after all).  If you can find another Taurus who shares in your  indulgences, that  would be great (and fun, too!) — but you could also  butt heads where  it really counts. Those with precise Virgo and  Capricorn Moons would be  a match — but a Libra Moon would find it most  difficult to carry on  its diplomacy through your more bullish  tendencies.

Moon in Gemini

Chatty Gemini  Moons are always moving from place to place, love interest  to love  interest! Your ruling planet — communicative Mercury — would  find  much fulfillment in Air signs Aquarius or Libra, feeding into your   desire to talk up a storm about high-minded topics at almost any given   moment. The more serious Capricorn or Scorpio Moon signs may pose a  challenge, and while dating a Pisces could be nice, both your flirty and   flighty similarities may equal just a fling.

Moon in Cancer

The Moon rules  over Cancer, making you one of (if not the most)  emotionally-charged  signs. Tapping into your feelings and the feelings  of those around you  is second nature, and so dating a fellow Cancer  Moon would create a  lifetime of a very nurturing, caring partnership.  Dreamy Pisces and  more inward Scorpio also makes a match, while brazen  Leo – even with  its brazen approach to self-expression — may prove too  much to  emotionally bear.

Moon in Leo

Your Fire sign is  also ruled by the Sun — the perfect recipe for one  self-assured Moon  sign! You want to be a leader, you want to make the  most out of any  given opportunity and you want your partner to take note  and appreciate  your strengths. An action-oriented Aries and optimistic  Sagittarius  make ideal partners who have enough confidence themselves to  keep up  with you, while stubborn Taurus or protective Scorpio do not  make the  best match.

Moon in Virgo

With  communication planet Mercury ruling over your Moon sign, you are   constantly critiquing and analyzing almost every situation and   conversation, and you love perfection — this desire for clean and   clear-cut may carry over in your relationships especially. A fellow Virgo or down-to-business Capricorn make good matches for you, while you may struggle with an Aquarius or Sagittarius Moon’s more light-hearted  and free-flowing approach to life and love.

Moon in Libra

Fair and balanced is your biggest relationship rule, as you are always  the diplomatic  lover, ruled by love goddess Venus. Aquarius and Gemini  Moons would  appreciate your harmonious requirements, still keeping with  your airy  and creative mentality. Aries, on the other hand, would not be   compatible with you, as the strong survival instincts of the Aries Moon   may find either of your running away in the face difficult times.

Moon in Scorpio

Deep and private  by nature, the Scorpio Moon is a motivated Moon with a  knack for sussing out information and details taking place under the  surface.  Your partner should think twice before pulling one over on you!  An  intimate Taurus or intelligent Virgo Moon would make a good match, appreciating and reciprocating your drive and desire, while an  independent Aquarius Moon may not appreciate your often suspicious ways.

Moon in Sagittarius

You love to  find joy, pleasure and enthusiasm in all of your endeavors,  and you  truly put your faith into matters of the heart. An open-minded  Gemini  or Aquarius Moon would suit your optimistic outlook in  relationships,  but an overly sensitive Cancer or stubborn Taurus Moon  could simply  bring you down.

Moon in Capricorn

Always  climbing, always reaching and always striving for the best … as  strict  Saturn rules over your Capricorn Moon, a more serious Taurus or  Virgo  Moon could understand and entertain your need to master your  endeavors.  At the same time, you may also appreciate a Cancer Moon’s  more  nurturing take on a disciplined home life. However, a Libra Moon  may pressure you to too much to come down from your mountain and meet in  the middle.

Moon in Aquarius

You are  calm, cool and collected — and you know how to handle  situations both  independently and by working together for a common  cause. A more  spontaneous and courageous Leo Moon could serve you well  by boosting  your strengths and supporting your individuality, while a  stubborn  Taurus or impatient Aries may not make the best match as you  continue  on your own personal search for revolution.

Moon in Pisces

Since you’re a  big dreamer and gentle by nature, the Pisces Moon will  not fare well  with another Moon sign as submissive and docile as you –  that rules  out a Sagittarius or Libra Moon. However, an intense Scorpio  or  efficient Virgo could be just the sign to snap you out of your dreams   and visions and bring you back to reality.

Born on the Aquarius-Pisces Cusp

Born on the Aquarius-Pisces Cusp

The Cusp of Sensitivity: A dreamy, compassionate place

Tarotcom Staff Tarotcom Staff on the topics of pisces, cusp, astrology, aquarius

Wondering what happens when your birth chart combines the energy of quirky Aquarius with dreamy Pisces? If you were born on the cusp of these two horoscopes signs, between about February 15-21, you were born on The Cusp of Sensitivity — a compassionate and imaginative place. 

Spiritual, artistic, peace-loving and friendly, Aquarius-Pisces cuspers are highly original people. This is the cusp most likely to be labeled “offbeat” or “eccentric,” and its citizens are stimulated by visionary ideas and new experiences. They are highly intellectual, however not so good with practical details and follow-through.

These cuspers may be social or shy, or they may be a peculiar mix of both. This is because pending time with others is a great stress relief, but at the same time they are so sensitive they often choose to hide out alone and escape into their imaginations instead.

Aquarius-Pisces is also arguably the most intuitive cusp placement, lending a naturally psychic and compassionate view of the world. Delving into spiritual matters and philosophical ideals is much more important to these folks than simply managing the details of day-to-day life.  For this reason they may lose things, forget appointments, show up late or stand you up. But don’t be mad — it’s only because they were too preoccupied thinking about how make the world a better place on a much deeper level.
