Capricorns! It’s our time to shine sparkly ones!
I like talking about Capricorns because I’m a Capricorn and our birthdays land between December 22nd and January 19th. And a crystal that I really like to work with is Ruby.
Edgar Cayce actually gave us a list of crystals to work with the different astrological signs. I don’t really don’t subscribe at all to the birth stones that go along with different birth months because those were brought about by different jewelry associations to help sell the gem stones.
The astrological correspondences I feel make a lot more sense and go along with the different personality types or energy types that have to do with our astrological signs.
So, the sign we are in now is Capricorn.
Capricorns have a tendency to be very patient people, intelligent, ambitious people, highly ambitious sometimes to a fault. Very grounded, very earthy people, and the sign is, it’s an Earth sign and the sign is goat!
Now I’m not an astrological expert at all. There are plenty of you out there, I know there are. So I hope I gave a good, overall, general viewpoint of a Capricorn 😉
The crystal that we like to use for that astrological sign is Ruby. And in my vid, I show you a beautiful Ruby specimen with the six sides showing perfect fastening in the rock matrix. And I really, really just love it! It’s right in the granite, and it’s beautiful; just a beautiful representation of a deep red Ruby.
Ruby is part of a crystal family that we call Corundum. It’s an Aluminum Oxide.
It’s got the Mohs hardness, (“Mohs hardness” is a term we use to determine how hard the mineral is in comparison to others), so it’s a relative scale. It’s got the Mohs hardness of 9. So it’s super hard. Diamond in comparison is a 10, and that’s the hardest.
It’s a very, very tough mineral. So with that comes energy of passion, energy of strength, an energy of ambition and courage, of course, so that makes a lot of sense right? It has a lot of vibrational alignment with Capricorns.
Say you’re looking to give a birthstone to a Capricorn, it’d probably would be a lot more appreciated to give them a Ruby rather to give them an Aquamarine or Blue Topaz or Tanzanite even, those are the ones I’ve seen listed that go along with birth month that again the Gemological associations and things came up with.
The Ruby seems to fit a lot better for a Capricorn to me.
So let me know what you think about that, okay? Let’s hear about your experiences with birthstone gems versus Ruby in the comments below.
