March Birthstone - Aquamarine
This blog post is about the traditional March/Piscean birthstone, Aquamarine. To read more about my meaning of the word “traditional” read the February blog post. It is my goal to provide information that is informative, lifting and inspiring. Some of my blog entries will also include a blessing that I intuited.
Aquamarine is associated with the astrological sign of Pisces. The sign of Pisces is associated with many other stones as well…. Agate (Blue Lace, Graveyard Plume, Pearl), Amethyst (Chevron), Ametrine, Apatite, Bloodstone, Coral, Fluorite, Jasper (Willocreek), Lapis Lazuli, Moldavite, Obsidian, Opal (Black Plume, Dendritic, Fire, Lime), Quartz, Selenite, and Turquoise to name a few. Pisces is a water sign and many of these stones have water colors, have a watery appearance, have water/fluid names, or are found in the water.
Aquamarine is a Beryl variety of stone. It’s Beryl siblings include Bixbite, Emerald, Goshenite, Heliodor, and Morganite. More recent discoveries have found new stones, a Green Beryl that is not an emerald and a Red Beryl. The aquamarine colors range from light green to blue.
Aquamarine… “agua”…. Water. It is said that Aquamarine resonates to the energy of the ocean assisting the wearer to connect with the nature spirits of the sea. This stone is also called a “Stone of Courage and Protection”. So what do you think of when you hear the word “ocean”. I think of relaxation, the soothing sound of the ocean waters, the healing properties of salt water. So think of Aquamarine as a stone that helps you to use your feeling nature to calm an overactive mental field, to bring peace to mental chaos. Interesting that this stone also encourages intellectual growth and inner knowledge, opening one up to intuition and the super-conscious mind. This also speaks to using the feeling nature to bring wisdom and understanding of a higher nature to mentality. This also helps to deepen meditative states and bring new insights from your higher self to your daily life.
I can feel the graceful pull of your peaceful ebb
Drawing me deeper into myself
Drifting away from chaos
Towards higher thought
More balanced, more peaceful
From this space I am consciousness
I feel my purpose
And become still
