Geminis and the Black Zodiac

Every zodiac sign, like every human being, has good and bad emotions and feelings.

I do not like to label them as bad as I believe they make us who we are, plus the so called negative feelings are necessary for a balance within us.

Geminis, according to the black zodiac, can be reckless and unpredictable. This is also one thing that, believe it or not, make them attractive in relationships.

They are not in the same wave length all the time.

What is a Birthstone

Birthstones are gems that correspond to the date someone is born on. A lot of people like to wear their birthstones as jewellery, either as pendants or bracelets.

Western historians believed there was a connection between the 12 stones displayed in Aaron's breastplate, described in the Bible, the 12 tribes of Israel and the 12 zodiac signs.

The breastplate contained 12 stones and is described in the Bible in the book of Exodus.

Flavius Josephus, 1st century AD, made the connection between the 12 stones and the birthstones.

It is believed that the 12 stones in the breastplate had some form of power which corresponded to the 12 signs; and that wearing them would have some sort of talismanic effect.

The idea of wearing a gemstone that corresponds to your birth month comes from the 18th century, in Poland when Jewish traders would trade gemstones.

But it is only in 1912 that the National Association of Jewelers (Jewelers of America) agreed and defined all the birthstones.

A lot has changed since these speculations were made and so now, birthstones are worn, but with little related to that.

You can see below how the birthstones changed over the centuries:

What Are the Gemini Birthstones

The Gemini Zodiac sign overlaps between May and June.

May birthstones are Emerald and Chrysoprase while June birthstones are Pearl and Moonstone.

The gemstones that have an natural harmony with Gemini are:

Agate, Apatite, Aquamarine, Chrysocolla, Chrysoprase, Citrine, Clear Quartz, Dendritic Agate, Emerald, Howlite, Jade, Leopard Skin Jasper, Onyx, Pearl, Peridot, Rutile, Blue Sapphire, Green Sapphire, Serpentine, Tanzanite and Variscite.

Pearl is accepted as the most connected birthstone to the Gemini sign. It represents the duality of the sign and its different shapes, forms.

Each Pearl is unique in its colour and brightness.

The Pearl also represents the spiritual and emotional journey taken by Geminis. Self development is something that is sought by people born under this sign.

Some of the attributes connected to the Pearl are the following:

  • Loyalty and partnership
  • Purity and humility

Many ancient civilisations had different beliefs when it came to how a Pearl came to be.

The Greeks believed they were tears of the Goddess of Love Aphrodite, that became solid and fell into the sea.

The Arabs believed they were formed when the oysters were attracted to the surface by the moon light.

Pearls used to be worn only by royalty at a point in time. They are considered the jewels of the sea.

How is the Gemini Birthstone Created?

A pearl is created when a foreign object is placed on the oyster, usually a small fish or parasite. The oyster then to kill this object creates something around it.

This layer is called a 'nacre'. Several layers are created by the oyster until the pearl is solid and shiny.

By the same token, a person becomes solid and shiny, emotionally and spiritually, when there are several layers of transformation being peeled or created along the way.

Pearls are rock solid, that tells me that you can also work on yourself in way that nothing breaks you. I believe that is one of the many things people should strive for, a strong mindset.

It is believed that pearls get the energy of the person wearing it, it shines brighter when the person is joyful and in good health, and it loses its splendour when the person is in a bad mood or sick.

A Gemini that wears a pearl will have a few qualities enhanced, this stone will work with your positive traits.

As mentioned earlier, Pearls will work on your partnerships and help you develop them further.

As Geminis, this is something that you value, having the right friends around you are essential to moving forward in life.

They will also help you attract pure and good energy to your life.

Pearls will also keep you healthy and disease free, especially when it comes to heart, digestive and intestine issues.

The Gemini Birthstones will keep you grounded, even when you are making strides financially and professionally.

Other Gemini Birthstones

Emerald and Chrysoprase are also Gemini birthstones.

The Chrysoprase helps Geminis when they are going through loss or a tough season of sorts.

Furthermore, it basically helps them on their emotional journey, and in healing their soul of traumas.

Also, it is believed that Chrysoprase brings good fortune and good health to those wearing it.

It brings protection when placed on the door frame or on a window frame, it also helps you sleep peacefully when put under your pillow.

The Emerald Gemini Birthstone, on the other hand, brings speed and focus to your thoughts. As it made your brain more acute to solving issues and making decisions.

The Egyptians used to regard the Emerald as the fountain of youth. they would gift it to the dead so their soul would remain forever young.

At one time, it was Queen Cleopatra's favourite gemstone.

Emeralds represent wisdom, patience and growth, they can also symbolise friendship and loyalty.

Many shamans use this Gemini Birthstone as a healing material for eyes related issues, headaches and spine problems.

The Roman Emperor Nero had Emeralds encrusted in his wine cups, which he used to drink wine while watching the gladiators in the arenas.

He used them to drink and keep the Emeralds close to his eyes in order to keep them healthy.

Another known Gemini Birthstone is the Moonstone. This is a semitransparent and trans-lucid gemstone.

Its use help you increase your intuitiveness, it gives you clarity of mind and helps you fous.

It is also a sign of fertility for women, and an emotional healer. I suggest wearing it as a bracelet or as a pendant if you are going through some emotional turbulence.
