I have selected the Astral gemstones based on the characteristics
of each Sun sign. However, if you do not identify strongly with the
characteristics shown, it may be that the Sun is not the main
influence in your birth chart.
In this case I would suggest that you check out the other signs and
choose the gemstones for the characteristics you most identify with
or wish to enhance within yourself.
Aquarius Characteristics - unconventional, logical, intellectual, humanitarian,
unpredictable, friendly, scientific, independent, and unique
Primary – Hematite
I have chosen hematite as the primary gemstone for Aquarius to encourage positive
expression of the Aquarius characteristics. Hematite promotes calm reasoning and mental
clarity so is the perfect companion for Aquarius. It enhances self control, memory and
intellect, reduces stress and encourages intuition. Hematite transforms negativity into love
and so helps to create loving relationships. It balances mood swings and provides inner
happiness in their place. Hematite is said to make your hopes and dreams come true
through your own efforts if you allow yourself to be guided by your intuition.
Secondary – Black Obsidian
Black obsidian absorbs negative energy and is good for combating depression. It
enhances self-control, honesty and truth as well as enabling you to find forgotten abilities.
I have chosen Black obsidian for Aquarius as it is useful for original thinkers, inventors
and entrepreneurs as it encourages focus and positive thought. Black obsidian also
ensures the use of power for the good of all and not just for personal gain. It is also said
to hold the power of prophesy and the ability to heal past lives.
Opposite – Tiger’s Eye
Tiger’s eye enhances passion, courage, willpower and the correct use of power. These
energies are very useful to Aquarius as they compliment this naturally intellectual and
logical sign. Tiger’s eye allows you to see clearly and brings balance and grounding
without dulling the senses. It is a very protective gemstone and gives you the ability to
make dreams come true by helping with practical decision making. This gemstone also
helps to provide the stability required for a healthy bank balance which Aquarius may feel
they do not need but will find useful as it enables them to live the unconventional life they
often crave. Tiger’s eye will increase vitality, creativity and self-confidence which in turn
will encourage personal achievement. This gemstone is also thought to protect against
curses. Tiger’s eye is the primary gemstone for Leo.
