Zodiac Stones: do you know yours?

6 months ago
zodiac-stones-do-you-know-yours

It turns out that each sign of the Zodiac has its own "patron" with brilliant edges and mesmerizing color depth. Want to experience its magic for yourself? Then trust the magical properties of emerald, chrysolite, opal, and other stones, which were known in ancient times.

 

It is interesting that such a “medal”, as usual, has a downside: a stone that does not suit your sign is not advised by astrologers to wear. The probability that it "does not take root" is too high, although knowledgeable people say that in this matter it is necessary to rely on, first of all, on intuition. In order not to tempt fate, read the generally accepted recommendations for choosing your precious "protector" and get on the path of positive changes in your life!

 

Why does each zodiac sign have several stones?

For each sign of the zodiac, indeed, many different natural stones are suitable. Their peculiarity is such that various stones, upon contact with representatives of various signs of the horoscope, activate certain properties. That is, the same stone can bring confidence to one zodiac sign, health to another, and a calming effect to a third. Therefore, ideally, acquire several amulets that will help in various life situations.

 

 

Is it possible to wear a stone of the zodiac sign every day?

Of course, if you have chosen a stone according to your zodiac sign, then you want to wear it every day. But the amulet can get tired, accumulate negativity in itself. In this case, be sure to let him rest. We have already written about how to clean the stone above. It is good to wear stones depending on the situation. For example, if you are in a stressful situation and need to calm down, wear a stone of your sign, which is responsible for calm and harmony. If, on the contrary, you need to be active and self-confident, then put on a talisman that brings success and confidence to your zodiac sign.

types-of-blue-gemstones-and-their-meanings

When it comes to colored gemstones, color is critical. Today, many buyers prioritize color, while the type of jewelry stone they care less about, as long as its hardness is sufficient for their purposes.

 

However, finding gemstones by color can be very tricky, as sellers usually show in-stock items as a list of gemstone types or varieties rather than their colors. The first thing that usually comes to mind when talking about blue stones is sapphires, but there are a large number of other blue and light blue gemstones on the market these days.

 

Blue gemstones in the jewelry industry

 

The color range of the gemstone ranges from deep blue to pale blue.

Sapphire has been known since antiquity. According to biblical tradition, when Moses saw God on Mount Sinai, under his feet was "something like the work of pure sapphire and as clear as the sky itself."

 

Nowadays, precious sapphire is mined at large deposits in Kenya, Cambodia, Australia, Tanzania, and the USA. The most valuable are stones from deposits in Madagascar, Sri Lanka and Kashmir.

 

 

Blue Agate

Agate is a variety of chalcedony quartz. He is known for a wide variety of texture patterns and possible colors, including many shades of cyan and blue. Some trade names for blue agate are Blue Lace Agate, Blue Mojave Agate, and Blue Banded Agate. Many agates today can be tinted, but unlike other types of gemstones, tinting usually does not affect its value. However, the seller is always obliged to openly report that the stone has been processed, whatever it may be. Agate is known for its hardness and durability, which currently makes it one of the most versatile blue gemstones.

 

Blue Aquamarine

Aquamarine is a member of the beryl family. Due to its low iron content, it can range from blue to bluish-green and is usually very delicate, especially when compared to the brighter, more intense blue tint of gemstones such as topaz. Aquamarine is one of the few natural blue rough gemstones (although some darker gemstones can heat up) that is exceptionally hard and durable. Rare specimens of aquamarine show the effect of a cat's eye. Aquamarine is officially considered the birthstone of March.

 

Blue Apatite

Apatite is made up of calcium phosphate, which is also what our teeth and bones are made of. Although it is a very common mineral, gem-quality specimens are extremely rare. Apatite is listed as a sample for a hardness index of 5 on the Mohs scale. It is known for its rich range of possible colors, including bluish green (à la Paraiba). Apatite is usually untreated, with the exception of one variety called "moroxite", which is usually heated to improve the color. Some rare specimens can show the effect of a cat's eye, which is why they are called: Cat's eye apatites.

 

Blue Azurite

Azurite is a gem variety of copper ore. There are two main copper carbonates: azurite and malachite. However, azurite is much less common. Its characteristic bright blue color is often referred to as "azure white" (hence the stone's name). Azure White is a unique deep color reminiscent of azure found in high quality azurite specimens. Azurite is also found mixed with malachite in the form of attractive blue-green stones. Azurite druze is also often used in jewelry and is much more durable due to the hardness of the parent rock.

 

Blue Benitoite

Benitoite is one of the rarest minerals to date, first discovered in California by James Couch in 1907, which is an exquisite blue silicate of barium and titanium. Today it is one of the rarest gemstones. The dispersion of benitoite is higher than that of a diamond, it has excellent brilliance. Although deposits of the mineral benitoite have been found in various parts of the world, gem-quality material worthy of cutting has only been found in San Benito County (California, USA). Benitoite is the official stone of California.

 

Blue Chalcedony

Chalzdedon belongs to the mineral group of quartz. Technically, "chalcedony" is a generic term for all varieties of cryptocrystalline quartz. It features a rich variety of colors, sizes and patterns. In the professional trade, however, the term "chalcedony" is used in a narrower sense to mean "true chalcedony", i.e. a monochromatic, translucent gemstone that ranges in color from light white to bluish. It has recently been discovered that chalcedony is actually a combination of quartz and the polymorphic mineral moganite. Chalcedony is perfectly polished, the highest quality specimens have an attractive sheen.

 

Blue Chrysocolla

Chrysocolla is a gem-quality copper hydrosilicate. Outwardly, it looks like azurite and malachite at the same time. And although its most famous colors are bright blue and aquamarine, in fact, chrysocolla can be dyed in the most bizarre, unique combinations of blue and green. The color of the mineral is due to copper impurities, it is often confused with turquoise due to its similar color and appearance. Determining chrysocolla by composition can be very problematic, since it does not have a clear chemical composition. Any bluish-green copper silicate that cannot be identified as something else is more likely to be recognized as chrysocolla. It is for this reason that most gemological laboratories will not be able to issue an identification conclusion for chrysocolla with an unambiguous conclusion.

 

Blue Diamond

Diamond (brilliant) is the hardest natural material on earth with a rating of 10 on the Mohs hardness scale of minerals. The name comes from the Greek word ἀδάμας ("adamas"), which means "indestructible". Diamond is made up of pure carbon, which is also made up of graphite, a common industrial material used, in particular, to make pencil leads. A diamond is usually irradiated to produce a blue color, although it is very rare to find completely natural blue stones that have not been processed. Most blue diamonds also have a secondary greenish tint. The blue diamond is valued for its rarity, exceptional hardness, and high refraction and light scattering (the ability to split white light into spectral components).

 

Blue Quartz with Dumortierite

Blue quartz is indeed rare, which is why dumortierite quartz is one of the rarest varieties of quartz commercially available. It is a quartz aggregate intergrown with the mineral dumortierite. Inclusions of the latter determine the characteristic unusual blue color of the stone, which varies from light blue to dark blue, and even - in rare cases - to reddish brown. Like all quartz, dumortierite has excellent hardness and durability, so it is suitable for any kind of jewelry. It is also often used to make porcelain and ceramics, as it turns pure white when fired.

 

Blue Fluorite

Fluorite Fluorite is one of the most popular collectible stones in the world, second only to quartz. It is even often called "the most multi-colored mineral in the world." Fluorite is characterized by a variety of bright and saturated colors and patterns. It was first described in 1530 and was originally named "fluorspar". The term "fluorescence" comes from fluorite, as it was one of the first fluorescent minerals to be studied. Luminous colors of fluorite can be very different, but blue is common. Faceted fluorites are very rare and are usually cut into cabochons. The most valuable is color-changing fluorite, a rare variety that noticeably changes hue when lighting changes: from blue in daylight to purple in incandescent light.

 

Blue Hawk Eye

Hawkeye is a rare form of fibrous quartz that ranges in color from blue-gray to blue-green. In fact, hawk's eye is a pseudomorph of quartz that began to emerge as another mineral, blue crocidolite. Over time, the quartz gradually replaced the original blue crocidolite while retaining its fibrous form and, in part, the latter's blue color (depending on the degree of oxidation during formation). Hawkeye, also closely related to tiger's eye and pitersite, is usually colored with golden stripes or covered with wavy patterns. It is known for its iridescence (the so-called "cat's eye" effect, more precisely, in this case, "bird's eye"). Iridescence manifests itself in the form of small light rays reflected from the surface of the stones even, and even on flat sections.

 

Blue Hemimorphite

Hemimorphite is one of two rare zinc silicates, formerly called calamine. Hemimorphite is closely related to another blue or bluish green gemstone known as smithsonite. For a long time, hemimorphite and smithsonite were classified as one mineral, called calamine, due to the great similarity of their appearance and gemological properties. Hemimorphite has a hardness of 5 on the Mohs scale. This mineral can be colored in various shades of blue, green and white, but most often the color of hemimorphite is in the range from blue to bluish-green and resembles the color of chrysocolla. The most valuable is Sky Blue and Swiss Blue hemimorphite, which often has blue stripes with white veins. And although it is more of a collection value than jewelry, hemimorphite can still be used to make unusual jewelry, the main thing is to choose the right frame and exercise due care when working. Hemimorphite drusen are also very popular in jewelry, and they are also more wear resistant due to the hardness of the parent rock.

 

Blue Iolite

The history of iolite goes back thousands of years, but as a gemstone it is quite "young" and little known. Iolite is a transparent gem-quality variety of cordierite mineral. Its hardness is 7-7.5 on the Mohs scale, so it is quite suitable for jewelry. Iolite is highly pleochroic, often showing violet-blue, yellow-gray, and blue hues in the same stone depending on the angle at which the stone is viewed. When cut appropriately, iolite is typically purple or violet-blue in color.

 

Blue Kyanite

Kyanite is a unique gemstone, famous for its unique color. Its name comes from the Greek word meaning "blue", although its coloring can be very diverse. The most valuable color of kyanite is considered to be sapphire blue, but most stones have a distinct color zoning with a division of areas into light and dark, and there are also whitish streaks and spots. It is attractive with its glass-pearl luster. In addition, kyanite is known for its varying hardness: when cut perpendicular to the long axis, it is 6-7 on the Mohs scale, in parallel - only 4-4.5. It is very important to understand these hardness features of Kyanite in order to properly position the stone when cutting.

 

Blue Labradorite

Labradorite belongs to plagioclase feldspars. Its base color, which ranges from dark smoky to grey, is accompanied by a remarkable metallic sheen of usually royal blue. Some particularly fine examples of labradorite can play with all the colors of the spectrum in the form of iridescence, such stones are known as spectrolites. The hardness of labradorite, equal to 6-6.5 on the Mohs scale, is sufficient for making almost any kind of jewelry.

 

Blue Lapis Lazuli

Lapis lazuli, or simply "lapis", is one of the most popular gemstones of all time. It has been used as a decorative material for jewelry for thousands of years. The finest lapis lazuli is believed to have been mined in northern Afghanistan for over 6,000 years. Technically, lapis lazuli refers to rocks, not minerals. Many examples of lapis lazuli can contain up to 15 different minerals in a single stone. In addition to lapis lazuli, the main components of the stone are lapis lazuli, calcite and pyrite. Lapis lazuli gives lapis lazuli a rich blue color, calcite is responsible for the white "marble" veins, and pyrite, represented in lapis lazuli with characteristic golden flecks, gives the stone a shine. Lapis lazuli is considered to be quite soft with a rating of 5-6 on the Mohs hardness scale, yet it remains a very popular gemstone.

 

Blue Larimar

Larimar is a gemstone variety of pectolite, ranging in color from blue to turquoise blue. The name "larimar" is a trademark. Larimar is mined in only one place on the planet - in the Dominican Republic. The characteristic color of larimar is due to the replacement of calcium with copper impurities. Larimar often has inclusions of calcite and hematite, which can give it very interesting shades of blue, from white and light blue to moderate sky blue and "volcanic" blue (the most valuable color of larimar). This is a fairly soft stone (only 4.5-5 on the Mohs scale), but it is still often used to create jewelry. Larimar is very popular in the Caribbean, but very hard to find anywhere else.

 

Blue Moonstone and Blue Rainbow Moonstone

Moonstone is the best-known variety of orthoclase potassium feldspar, but "rainbow moonstone" is technically not "moonstone" at all. Rainbow moonstone is the trade name for a special variety of labradorite, a plagioclase feldspar, that exhibits a bluish adularescence similar to that of potassium feldspar moonstone. However, for simplicity, most consider both minerals to be the same stone. The name "moonstone" refers to the effect of a bluish-white glow on its surface, which resembles the light of the moon in the night sky. An optical phenomenon known as "adularescence" is due to the unique features of the structure of the mineral. And while most moonstone specimens are bluish-white in themselves, adularescence reveals many other colors in the stone. A moonstone, on the surface of which an optical phenomenon occurs, iridescence (the effect of a cat's eye), is rare, but still also occurs. Iridescent moonstone is known in the jewelry trade as star moonstone.

 

Blue Sapphire

Sapphire Sapphire is the most famous blue-colored gemstone (although there are actually many colors of sapphire). The blue color of sapphire varies from light blue to deep blue. Because sapphire is a gem-quality variety of corundum, it is incredibly hard and wear-resistant (9 out of 10 on the Mohs hardness scale). It is also considered to be one of the most precious gemstones on the market today. Some blue sapphires can exhibit interesting optical properties such as asterism (starry) and color change. Today, blue sapphires from Sri Lanka (Ceylon) are considered the most valuable, but earlier stones from Kashmir and Mogou in Burma were considered the most noble. Blue sapphires from Cambodia (from the province of Pailin) ​​were also famous for their purity. Many even believe that Pailin sapphires are close in quality to Kashmiri, Burmese and Sri Lankan (Ceylon) sapphires. Among sapphires, there are stones with amazing properties, for example, rare color-changing sapphires, as well as outlandish iridescent star sapphires. The blue star sapphire is in high demand and is especially prized by collectors and jewelers alike. Sapphire is also one of the amulet stones of September.

 

Blue Smithsonite

Smithsonite is a rare gem-quality zinc carbonate closely related to blue hemimorphite, as mentioned above. Smithsonite is sometimes referred to as "zinc spar". Its color usually ranges from bluish green to greenish blue, similar to that of the hemimorphite. Due to its rarity, smithsonite is a very popular collectible stone. It got its name in honor of James Smithson, a famous chemist and mineralogist. The famous Smithsonian Institution is named after James Smithson, who, in his will, ordered to transfer funds for its construction. Like hemimorphite, smithsonite is rarely used in jewelry due to its rarity, but with the right choice of setting and due care in work, smithsonite jewelry is very effective.

 

Blue Sodalite

Sodalite is a deep blue gemstone that gets its name from its sodium (soda) content. Like lapis lazuli, sodalite is characterized by a very dark blue color, often speckled with interesting white streaks or spots formed by calcite inclusions. Sodalite is sometimes referred to as "alomite" or "ditoite". Hackmanite is an exceptionally rare variety of sodalite known for a special color-changing effect called "reverse photochromism" or tenebrescence. Unlike other color-changing stones, this rare form of sodalite can fade to grayish or greenish-white in sunlight, but after a long enough time in the dark, it returns to its original color.

 

Blue Spinel

For centuries, blue and red spinel were mistakenly considered blue sapphire and red ruby, respectively. In terms of its gemological properties, spinel is very similar to sapphire and ruby ​​corundums. The colors of spinel, as well as the colors of corundum, can be very diverse. Some spinel colors are considered rarer and, as a result, more expensive than others. In general, the noble red spinel is considered the most valuable, followed by the rare blue spinel. The most sought after shade of blue spinel. considered cobalt blue. Like diamond, spinel is a single refractive mineral, so its color is very pure. The best blue spinel should have a medium to medium dark shade of color, similar to that of a noble blue sapphire. Unlike sapphire, blue spinel, as a rule, is never processed and is only slightly inferior to it in hardness, while in any case it is considered a very hard and wear-resistant stone. Therefore, it is ideal for any kind of jewelry.

 

Blue Tanzanite

Tanzanite is one of the most popular gemstones today. It is a gem variety of deep purple-blue zoisite, which is mined in only one place on the planet - on the Merelani plateau in Tanzania, near Mount Kilimanjaro. Tanzanite's characteristic vibrant violet-blue color is unparalleled in gemstones, but like many other blue and blue stones, tanzanite gets its radiant color through a standard heat treatment process. Tanzanite is not very hard compared to many other gemstones: its hardness index is 6-7 on the Mohs scale, which, however, is sufficient for most types of jewelry. It was recently officially listed by the AGTA as one of the amulet stones for December.

 

Blue Topaz

Blue topaz is the second most popular gemstone in all time (according to Colored Stone magazine, sapphire is in first place). With a hardness of 8 on the Mohs scale, blue topaz is considered one of the most affordable gemstones. Like many stones of our time, topaz acquires radiant shades of blue through the process of artificial refinement by irradiation. The color of blue topaz is usually divided into three different "levels", or shades. Topaz London Blue has a rich dark blue color, which is considered the most valuable and sought after. The medium blue Swiss Blue topaz is the second most popular, followed by the light blue Sky Blue topaz. Blue topaz is recognized as one of the official stones of December.

 

Blue Tourmaline

Blue tourmaline is the general name for two rare varieties of tourmaline: Paraiba tourmaline and indicolite. Pure blue tourmaline is extremely rare, as most of these stones have a pronounced secondary green tint. Tourmaline Paraiba is considered the most valuable variety of tourmaline, which got its name from the place where it was first found in Brazil. The neon green-blue color of Paraiba Tourmaline is due to its copper content. Technically, tourmaline in any other shade of blue (from light to dark) can be called "indigolite". In any case, blue tourmaline is considered very rare, especially stones over 1 carat. Tourmaline has good hardness (7-7.5 on the Mohs scale) and wear resistance. Cat-eye tourmalines are not considered particularly rare, but still come across infrequently, therefore they are of great interest to collectors. It should also be noted that tourmaline is one of the stones of October.

 

Blue Turquoise

Turquoise is one of the most famous gemstones. By the way, the turquoise color got its name from the name of the stone, and not vice versa. Pure blue turquoise is quite rare. Like many blue gemstones, turquoise usually has a noticeable greenish tint that is more pronounced than blue in most turquoise specimens. Sky blue turquoise with a minimum of veins is traditionally considered the most valuable, although in some countries blue turquoise with black veins or intricate patterns of the parent rock is most sought after. The blue hue of turquoise is due to the content of copper, green - to the content of iron. Despite the relative softness of turquoise compared to other gemstones (5-6 on the Mohs scale), it is very often used in jewelry. Turquoise belongs to the December stones. In recent times, it has become increasingly difficult to find untreated turquoise, as most specimens are refined by tinting, waxing, impregnating, or stabilizing.

 

Blue Zircon

Blue zircon is the most "sparkling" blue gemstone. Its refractive index is higher than that of sapphire, tanzanite and spinel, the coefficient of light scattering (the ability to split white light into spectral color components) of blue zircon is also very high. Zircon is considered to be quite hard (7-7.5 on the Mohs scale), but brittle, so the edges of facets of a faceted stone wear out over time. Being a pleochroic stone, zircon often exhibits a slight greenish tint. Zircon is a naturally occurring mineral, but blue zircon is obtained by heating brownish zircon from Cambodia or Myanmar (Burma). Zircon should never be confused with an artificial synthetic diamond simulant, cubic zirconia, called "phianite" in Russia, which has nothing to do with natural zircon.

 

 

When to wear blue gemstones?

 

The blue color of precious stones is the color of the air and water elements. Therefore, blue stones are credited with a powerful effect on a person, supported by the forces of nature:

 

  • blue gems soothe and relieve stress, just as contemplation of the sea surface or the blue sky relieves stress;
  • people who wear jewelry with blue stones attract success, fully realize their creative abilities;
  • some even awaken psychic powers from wearing blue gemstone jewelry;
  • it has been observed that blue stones accelerate recovery from inflammatory and other diseases, and have a positive effect on health.

Good news can come from where you least expect it, so stop making plans and scenarios and let things go by themselves.

 

Gemini

Today, the Moon transits your zodiac sign and urges you to be more attentive to yourself, to your needs, to the most daring aspirations. Even if you have some fears about a project that has just started or is about to start, trust your friends and the people who offer to advise and help you. During this period, success, in all respects, depends on the ability to relate, the receptivity to advice, the ability to be inspired by the ideas of others.


Cancer

You dream of a financial and professional success of great proportions, and today you feel that you are fast approaching it. You are in a favorable context, all the steps taken seem to take place to your advantage, only it is necessary to learn patience and discretion today. Probably some very useful information will reach you, from people at a distance, maybe even abroad. But no matter how much you "eat your tongue" to say everything to those around you, do your best to refrain.

 

Lion

You enjoy trust and attention from friends and more. You are charming, you always find a solution for everything and you only look at the full side of the glass. You are a real source of inspiration, enthusiasm and optimism for those around you. An excellent day for socializing, for reviewing aspirations and goals, for creating your future through appropriate gestures and words. On the other hand, if you are a trainer, coach, teacher, lecturer or carry out any other activity that aims to share ideas and knowledge, you can enjoy full success.


Virgo

An important day, especially from a professional point of view. Today you have the opportunity to demonstrate your skills, talents, knowledge, in front of a boss or a potential collaborator. It seems that you are convincing enough to get such funding or a promise. It is true that it cannot be said that financial problems are completely solved, but at least you are back on the waterline and you look at things a little more optimistic, from this point of view.

 

Libra

The moon placed in Gemini, in the area of ​​elevation and personal development, hopes and ideals, makes you think more about the future, to be more interested in educational and cultural activities, travel or studies. It is a good time for any kind of activity that can help you evolve, broaden your consciousness and horizons of knowledge. Today, you will probably be very curious, you will research, search, compare information. It is very useful, however, to listen carefully to the advice or guidance of more experienced people.

 

Scorpio

The moon in Gemini, present in the area of ​​deep inner transformations, but also of other people's money, talks about the chance to find out some inner answers, by putting together information or teachings received. On the other hand, today you can access some funds with the help of your partner or you can receive a bonus as a result of the results from the service. In any case, it seems that you are facilitated by access to all kinds of benefits, both material and spiritual. Be receptive and accept to be supported.

 

Sagittarius

In your case, today the area of ​​social image, relationships, cooperation is targeted. It is an excellent day to invigorate a series of partnerships or collaborations, but you can only do this by paying attention to the reactions of others, to their attitude towards you, to the words spoken to you. This way you will realize how you are perceived, what is the image you have created, what is the "mask" that you use most often in the world. Maybe it's time to give up the desire to impose yourself at any cost and be the center of attention.

 

Capricorn

Whenever the Moon passes through Gemini, you are invited to work and you are challenged to cope with several tasks at the same time, to adapt to changes and to organize your activity as well as possible. So, even if you are not very enthusiastic in the morning, you even feel that you are being wronged or exploited, get over it and do everything you can to be effective. Avoid starting several things at the same time, focus and this will leave you little time for yourself.


Aquarius

A day you can live to your heart's content. Even if you are prone to some excesses (especially in terms of money, in the first part of the day), still, you manage to detach yourself from problems much easier and look at life with more serenity. It is an excellent day for manifestations of love, for creativity and fun. Pedagogical activities (especially if you are a teacher or dealing with children) are successful. Projects that require creativity go well.

 

Pisces

The moon placed in the soul area can make you more sensitive, but also very sensitive and empathetic. Today it would be good to stay away from tiring activities and give more time to your soul, your hobbies, relaxing or creative activities. Intuition works perfectly, sensitivity is at its highest, and it is not excluded that all sorts of memories come to mind or suddenly discover the meaning of past events. A valuable and material day.

Read today's Horoscope and find out what the stars have in store for you next week! You have information about all the signs, provided by Bemorepanda

 

Aries

Your income is growing quite a lot today. On the one hand, it is possible to take the salary, a bonus or loved ones can give you substantial gifts and favors. However, on the other hand, there are good chances to discover new ways to earn from a professional activity. Trust your intuition and talk to yourself, but also to those who can give you viable advice.

 

Taurus

It is a wonderful day for you, even if it is dominated by oscillating moods. These are good times to get rid of relationships and situations that have exhausted your experiences for you. In parallel, you can easily draw new plans for the future, with a lucidity and strength that you rarely have. In the afternoon, relax shopping or read a funny book.

 

Gemini

The day predisposes you to inner meditations, reflections on your life and a great desire to escape into parallel worlds. Your mind is agitated, so it would be good to avoid the requested topics and relationships that tire you. There are possible heated discussions with relatives and close friends about your health. Be careful, rest and follow the advice of health professionals.

 

Cancer

Friends challenge you a lot today. However, some people in the professional environment in which you work will want a lot from you. The fact that these people ask you frequently is possible to react quite vehemently. Control your moods and choose your words carefully. Somewhere, the remarks of some in front of you have a grain of truth.

 

Lion

You are very demanding in socio-professional terms, so it would be good to prepare thoroughly for discussions with bosses, hastily scheduled meetings or meetings with various officials. You have charisma, strength in words and a presence of mind that will be noticed and appreciated by everyone. Avoid forcing the note or venturing into little-known lands.


Virgo

Your mood swings are due to the multitude of information that will come to you today at a fast pace. Travel or study plans may be thwarted by factors that are difficult to understand and detect now. It would be good to adapt to the new situations and wait for other favorable moments for the realization of your wishes.

 

Libra

Family or professional budget planning is the main topic today. You can also pay invoices, fees, taxes or personal services. It is good to analyze things well before making major investments with long-term effects. There are people around you who can give you good advice on the financial segment.

 

Scorpio

The relationship with the life partner is tense and needs changes, either of the social status or of the common program. Due to professional duties it is possible to seriously neglect this relationship, so that heated discussions, accusations and even ultimatums may be present. Caution and discernment are recommended in all.

 

Sagittarius

It seems that you are immersed in the routine affairs of either the house or the workplace. Choose the priority and easy ones, because your body is tired and needs special care. Medical consultations and tests are topics to consider. On the other hand, a discussion with someone you trust can invigorate you, but it can also provide you with valuable information.

 

Capricorn

Relationships provoke you a lot today. Dissatisfaction concerns the joint budget and program. On the other hand, it would be good to be open to the suggestions and wishes of your loved ones. It is time to put conservatism aside and accept other facets of reality. The fact that others give you too little affection or attention does not mean that they appreciate you less.


Aquarius

Large-scale activities can be seen in the domestic space. The discussions with the family members aim, on the one hand, at the repairs and rearrangements necessary for the house. However, on the other hand, the plans for the coming spring will be brought to attention slowly but surely. It is possible that due to some professional responsibilities you will get a little less involved in the family segment.

 

Pisces

There are dialogues and meetings with friends and close relatives. The exchange of information circulated around you today will be beneficial for everyone and especially will have long-term effects. Take advantage of the strength of those found and think, leisurely, about your future plans. In particular, the professional segment benefits from today.

Aries

The desire to stay at home among family members is very strong. On the other hand, you also have a lot of outstanding household chores. Today is a good time, both to talk to your loved ones and to resolve all sorts of property issues. However, at work you are in full demand, but with a little effort and goodwill you will do honorably.


Taurus

It is a busy day, both personally and professionally. A lot of information will be circulated around you, but not all of it is useful to you. It is good to be careful in communication, because there is a risk of talking too much and uselessly. Even if others challenge you, secretly wanting to know your plans, you only speak what is strictly necessary.


Gemini

The main theme of the day is related to the income you get from your professional activity. It seems that after talking with a friend or a person who supports you in the professional field, you will find new ways to earn more. Control your reactions and listen to what you are told. But leave the decisions for the next few days.


Cancer

Make plans for at least a month from now. The inspiration seems to come from an unknown area, but you will find that they are exactly the ideas, the suggestions you need. People in your immediate entourage can come to your aid with special information. But, you just have to listen, remember and write down in a secret diary everything you want to do.


Lion

It is good to be discreet and to take care only of light, routine tasks. The challenges in the professional segment are major and, as much as possible, honor your work tasks, even using the help of colleagues. Health is vulnerable, but avoid medical consultations and tests because there is a risk of errors that are difficult to improve.


Virgo

It's time to connect with friends, with the people you are involved with in professional projects or plan to join some. You can lay the foundations for long-term collaborations, which will also involve relations with foreign countries, either through collaborators from other countries, or by carrying out activities in remote locations. For now, pay attention to what is being discussed today.

 

Libra

The stars encourage your relationships with bosses or people who can support you in various personal and professional projects. The hustle and bustle of work can make you very tired, so be careful and select priorities. Tensions are possible in collegial relationships, so it is good not to rely on their help. The afternoon is conducive to dialogue with family members.

 

Scorpio

The desire to communicate is great. This way you have the chance to talk to many people, but important people, from whom you can learn interesting topics. On the other hand, your travel or training plans, necessary in the professional field in which you work, are supported. Avoid giving advice or telling too many personal details about yourself.

 

Sagittarius

It is a good day to check your income and expenses budget. You may receive some money from a collaboration, but your life partner or collaborators will also support you materially. If you look beyond everyday appearances, you will find that slowly but surely, other options for gaining from and through others open up to you. It's all about patience and spending the bare necessities.

 

Capricorn

Partnerships are accentuated, due to the money and goods you use and manage together with your life partner, relatives and collaborators. On the one hand, you may receive material support from these people. But, on the other hand, you in turn will have to either pay arrears or simply help a loved one in need.


Aquarius

You have a lot to do at work, but you need to be careful and select your priorities. Health is vulnerable, especially on the segments of the joint system. Natural remedies, rest, detachment from daily discomforts are the most indicated. Avoid medical consultations and tests, because they are fleeting moments.

 

Pisces

Relationships can give you headaches, because you are very preoccupied with work tasks, thus neglecting your duties to your loved one or children. It is good to leave aside other activities and get more involved in the love chapter. With a little effort and goodwill you will be able to share equitably both personally and professionally.
