So it’s that time of year for you Crystal Hottie Aquarians to celebrate Life!
Let’s Talk about a Crystal for Aquarians
I am not claiming that I am an astrology expert. At all.
I know about my own sign and I follow it and do see a lot of the alignments in it. But that’s it.
So why am I giving astrological advice here at all?
Well, I get the astrological/crystal correspondence question quite often so I thought I’d start doing a series of these videos.
The person who I follow along with when it comes to crystals-astrology-alignments is Edgar Cayce.
A while ago he came up with certain crystal alignments that went along with astrological signs. In fact, I learned that info from this here book:
Please don’t ask me about commercial “birthstones” b/c most of that info comes from various gemological societies for the purpose of selling gemstones. Although, some are reported to have come from ancient teachings, I don’t know which have & which have not. But if you do know of a source for that info, please let me know about it!! I see a lot more sense in what Edgar Casey did with his astrological alignments than the usual birth stones we hear about.
Edgar Casey recommended Garnet for Aquarians
Now there are several different types of garnet but the one that I see most often recommended that kind of seems to make most sense to me is Almandine Garnet. And, it’s a gorgeous deep, deep, deep red stone; usually has no transparency in it; looks almost black! Staring into a larger piece, with the sunlight gleaming off of it, I think it looks like a glittering dazzling deep burgundy galaxy forming & organizing.
When almandines are tumbled, they look like black cherries. Just Beautiful![caption id="attachment_15545" align="aligncenter" width="600"] A natural (yet polished) almandine garnet dodecahedron expressing its inherent sacred geometry![/caption]
Aquarius’ date range is from January 20th – February 18th. It’s a water sign. After looking over the personality traits that align with Aquarians, I feel like the reason why Edgar Casey chose garnet is because it’s a root chakra stone & its quite grounding.
It’s also a stone all about strength + security.
AND about balancing that root chakra.
Mr. Cayce most likely chose this stone to provide a balancing effect for Aquarians, helping to counter-balance that water sign up with some earth element.
Garnet is an aluminum silicate & it’s relatively hard on the Mohs Hardness Scale; anywhere between a 6.5-7.5. So you can find lots of garnet jewelry pieces making it very convenient to wear.
