Wearing a birthstone is believed to help us overcome our weaknesses, and enhance our positive attributes. The ancient Greeks assigned different stones for each sign of the zodiac, based on the alleged powers of the stone, its color and its relationship to the sign.The ancient selection was called Joesphus’ list. Over the years many conflicting birthstone charts have been compiled, making it difficult for one to chose a birthstone.
Rather than select your birthstone from a chart, that may conflict with another chart, you can select your birthstone by finding out the color of your Zodiac sign. This way you can look for gemstones of that color, and select one that appeals to you. Make it your own.
As with the many different birthstone charts, the Zodiac color charts too, will vary. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn devised a chart that would assign a color of the rainbow to each sign of the Zodiac. Here is the their list.
Another color chart I will share with you is from the book Color Magic by Richard Webster. He gives a list of planets and their corresponding colors. Find your ruling planet and use this list below:
Sun: Yellow, Gold, Orange
Moon: Blue, White, Silver, Gray
Mars: Red, Orange, Pink
Mercury: Orange, Purple, Silver
Jupiter: Violet, Blue
Venus: Green, Pink, White
Saturn: Indigo, Gray
