Every zodiac sign has wonderful gifts associated with it, but there are also challenges that you might face, especially if the sun is currently in the your sun sign. Stones work to encourage your gifts and help you face your challenges.
The sun is currently in Aquarius (from January ). If your sun sign is not Scorpio, these stones are still useful. The zodiac energy of each sign surrounds all of us based on the time of the year. The energies of Scorpio are at work now.
Aquarius falls between Capricorn and Pisces and embodies both of these signs. Capricorn is strict, hard-working and earth-bound while Pisces is a little woo-woo, out there. Aquarius is an interesting sign because it is unpredictable and rebellious. The symbol of the Water Bearer represents the use of water to wash away the past and give life to future. Think of this energy in revolutionary aspect: the Age of the Aquarius is named for this sign. It is a time to wipe away your past and move onto a better future. This energy comes to us at the beginning of the year: perfect timing for making changes.
- AQUARIUS: January 19 – February 18
- ELEMENT: Air
- PLANET: Uranus
- SYMBOL: Water-Bearer
