Gemstones for Aries – Which Gemstones are Best for the Zodiac Sign Aries?
Discover how to choose the best Zodiac Gemstones for Aries and how they can be used to benefit this fiery, energetic Star Sign.
Aries is one of the strongest and most powerful signs of the Zodiac. Individuals born under the Zodiac Sign of The Ram have a reputation as leaders and pioneers.
The first of the 12 Signs of the Zodiac, Aries coincides with the beginning of Spring and is symbolic of new life. The time of Aries is all about the potential for new beginnings or fresh starts.
Not only is Aries the first sign in the Zodiac cycle, those born under the Sign of The Ram want to be ahead of every one else!
Aries like to be first in line, take first place in competitions, in fact be the first in everything.
Aries’ element is Fire, which drives this Starsign to to succeed. This energy can be aggressive, but generally in a good way. This means that Aries is persistent.
However, Arians are not careless, unlike another Fire Sign, Sagittarius.
Aries is a “doer”, which makes them great at getting things done and completing projects.
Pisces, which comes before Aries, brings the opportunity to relax and reflect at the end of the Zodiac Cycle. It is a time of release as we unburden ourselves of the things not needed – this can include people.
Pisces starts the process of thinking about the next steps on the journey of life. Following this period of reflection, Aries provides the energy to start moving forward again.
What Jewelry does Aries like?
Aries’ jewelry choices usually make the impact expected from someone with such high energy and enthusiasm.
Red, the colour of Aries’ Ruling Planet Mars, is totally aligned to their choice of jewelry. This means that rubies and red enamel, set in silver, are sure to be a hit with Aries Woman.
Black is also a particular favourite because of its association with power. However, Arians also respond well to the calming influence of indigo, which helps calm their fieryness and exuberance.
The diamond is the hardest of all the precious gems and suits the toughness of Aries. However, considered the purest of stones, it can also assist in the attainment of spiritual clarity and truth.
