Did you know that wearing your birthstone can work to ground & amplify your celestial energies! Great – but do you know your real birthstone? The one that truly resonates with you? Hey, did you even know you could have more than one? Many people think this subject is set in stone (pun intended Ha).

The birthstone debate encompasses:
Month or astrological sign?
Which authority or list to choose from?
Western or Eastern?
Modern or Traditional?

My 2cents: look beyond the established, the commercial, & the common place. Each astrological sign has many multiples of stones & crystals associated, you’ll be surprised. In doing my research I started with Judy Hall – my go to authority. Then I found, Healing Crystals for You, TheSpruce.com and of course Wikipedia, to name just a few.

I’ve complied a truncated list for each (my favorites):
