From the earliest time, people in every culture have sought a way of connecting with the stars and discerning the effect they have on their destinies. According to astrological teachings, the sign of the zodiac under which an individual is born has a great influence on his life, his soul, his character, and his general health. Each sign has its own characteristic qualities; each corresponds to a specific and for one’s strengths and weaknesses. Historically, gemstones have been used in conjunction with the various signs of the zodiac to support one’s basic personality type and to counteract its weaknesses.

When you read a jeweler’s pamphlet, you might notice that these same stones are suggested for birth months instead of zodiac birth signs. The reason behind this is that marketing departments want to appeal to everyone, not just believers in astrology. If you were born near the end of the month and your zodiac sign is different from the one that begins the month, your birthstone will be listed as belonging to the month that follows you. If your birthday occurs near the end of the month and belongs to the second zodiac sign listed for the month, you may have a sentimental piece of jewelry that was meant for you because of a jewelry chart that assigned a gem to all people born in your month. Fear not if the gem you have was meant for the sign before you. While wearing your zodiac birthstone empowers you with the best energy that represents your potential, the birthstone of the zodiac sign before you is known as your twelfth house gem. The twelfth house is the zodiac’s code for psychic energy, so wearing such a stone may not give off the energy of who you are, but it will help you pick up on the energy of those around you.
