Aquarius zodiac sign symbol in blue

Aquarius season has begun and I’m so excited to share with you the gemstones that can keep Aquarians focused, fulfilled, and flourishing. 

Aquarians are known for their intellect and their social outer layers. Those that know them as a loose acquaintance will think they’re outgoing extroverts who thrive in conversation and social settings. However, those that know them closely will know that although their skills in social settings are fantastic, they need time to recharge, reflect, and realign with themselves. 

Aquarians are, above anything else, independent. They desire financial stability as well as the ability to make decisions for themselves and live in a way that is neither tied down nor dependent on others. This can, of course, be a fantastic quality, as it encourages free thinking and reliance on one’s own abilities and desires. However, to others, it can sometimes come off as emotionally detached and unwilling to connect with those around them. Finding the balance where you are independent, but willing to open up and lean on those who care for you when you need support is important, Aquarians. This balance can give you incredible power and resilience in your life.

The gemstone that can help to achieve this balance the best is the garnet.The main zodiac stone of the Aquarius, garnet is said to promote personal power, truth, and commitment. Keeping this stone close by can help the individualistic Aquarius commit to both themselves, and others, by encouraging them to open up to those closest to them and commit to regular communication. Consistent positive communication is helpful for everyone, but Aquarians can benefit from it even more than most as it can help you to become more comfortable sharing pieces of yourself and your personality with those closest to you. Give yourself permission to connect and open up to those around you, Aquarius, and you may find that your ability to understand yourself will thrive in the wake of your newfound connections.

Royal purple colored and exquisite in its ability to pair well with almost anything you wear, amethyst is a wonderful catch-all for nearly any style. In addition to its incredible versatility, amethyst is known to promote calm energy, healthy sleeping patterns, and relaxation. This is a fantastic way for the introverted side of Aquarians to be sure that they get the time they need to fully reset their social batteries. Whether you are struggling with over commitment and are sacrificing a regular sleep schedule for a higher level of productivity, or you’re simply worn out from keeping up socially, this gemstone can bring you rest and a refreshed mental state.
