    YOU AND GEM 

    What is my birthstone according to the zodiac?

    WE know our star sign can tell us who we should be dating, what job to do and even where to sink the ink, but did you know it can also advise us on what jewellery to buy?

    Each sign of the zodiac corresponds to its own gemstone, with each one said to magnify the power of the pointer when worn. We're actually in the market for a bit of bling, so let's find out what stones we should be rocking.

    Set in stone

    The origin of birthstones is said to date back to the breastplate of Aaron which contained twelve gemstones representing the twelve tribes of Israel.

    Birthstones are steeped in myth and magic and are believed to bring good luck and therapeutic powers to those who wear them.

    While there isn’t an official standardised list of birthstones based on astrological signs, there are traditional associations.

    Let's have a look at the birthstones for each of the 12 zodiac signs, and what they mean.

    Aries: Bloodstone

    The birthstone for Aries is Bloodstone, which is also called the more palatable Heliotrope.

    According to crystalsandjewelry, Bloodstone was known to boost strength and courage.

    Aries is known for being one of the strongest signs of the zodiac which fits perfectly with this ballsy little gem.

    Taurus: Emerald

    Emerald is associated with Venus, which is Taurus' ruling planet.

    Taurus likes the finer things in life which is why a show-stopping emerald gives this sign the horn of plenty.

    Gemini: Pearl

    Pearl is regarded as the most appropriate birthstone for Gemini because it symbolises the dual-nature of the sign.

    According to crystalsandjewelry, Pearls also represent a spiritual journey, which is a par for the course with Gemini.

    Cancer: Ruby

    This precious red gem oozes confidence, which Cancer needs.

    It can be helpful to have gemstones that provide strength and emotional resilience deep emotional resilience especially when you're all up in your feelings.

    Leo: Peridot

    We all know Leos are concerned about their image and like to maintain their dignity and star sway.

    According to gemstagram, Peridot helps them grow and become more open-minded. The stone also boosts Leo’s traits of being truthful and lovable. Oh, Leo we see what you did there.

    Virgo: Saphire

    Since the ruling planet of Virgo zodiac sign is Mercury, the most suitable gemstone for this sign is said to be Sapphire.

    This stone helps enhance the already razor-sharp intelligence and wisdom of the detail-driven sign.

    Libra: Opal

    Opal is a symbol of confidence and faithfulness. The gem is said to enhance Libra's strengths, particularly their commitment to equality and teamwork.

    If you're a Libra reading this we bet there may be a few opal pieces knocking around you jewellery box and if there's not they might make a good birthday prezzie.

    Scorpio: Topaz

    Scorpio is considered to be one of the most powerful zodiac signs and can pick itself up from the depths of despair in a instant.

    Topaz is said to tap into the mind's higher consciousness making Scorpio even more of a go-getter than usual.

    Sagittarius: Blue Topaz

    Sagittarians can be outspoken, and so Blue Topaz, which represents the element of water is said to bring peace and harmony to a fuelled fire.

    According to lovetoknow, in energy healing, blue is the colour of the throat chakra, which is the centre of communication. We love this!

    Capricorn: Garnet

    Another precious red gemstone, the Garnet's significance is commitment and creativity.

    You don't get much more committed than a Capricorn. Whether it's work or love their little goat legs will keep on trekking right the way up the mountain.

    Aquarius: Amethyst

    Amethyst is is said have a calming effect on Aquarius, which can often come across as a bit nonplussed and even aloof. 

    The purple gem can have deeply positive effect on the water bearer's life when worn. Sounds good to us!

    Pisces: Aquamarine

    We know Pisceans like to wear their heart on the sleeve and can at times be over emotional.

    With its many healing properties, Aquamarine is said to bring a sense of balance and grounding, which is exactly what this sign needs.

    Eco-superstar Jessica Alba also paid close attention to the tattoo trend using her children’s zodiac signs as inspiration to add to her collection of ink.

    Free-spirited Sagittarius Miley Cyrus meanwhile opted to put her gorgeous glyph on the inside of her arm. Hopefully it protected her from all those wrecking balls!

    THE BLACK MOON CAN BOOST YOUR SEX LIFE

    Black Moon Lilith is the point in the sky that marks the furthest point of the moon’s orbit around the earth.

    Astrologers call Lilith the “dark moon.” Think unresting bitch face— the part of you that flips your lid when your chip your fresh manicure.

    Knowing your Lilith’s zodiac sign can reveal the darker side of your sexuality and where you might start crushing just a little too hard on someone.

    In an astrology chart, Lilith, also referred to as the Black Moon, represents a person’s primitive reactions and attitude – warts and all.

    PANDORA'S PLUTO 

    The power of Pluto in astrology and how the planet influences your star sign

    EVEN though power planet Pluto is the furthest away from earth it still packs a mighty punch astrologically.

    This planet's placement in our chart signifies what we need to bin in order to welcome in the shiny and new. It's majorly transformative stuff – let's dive straight in.

    What happens when we open Pluto's box?

    Pandora's box was a metaphor from Greek mythology, which when opened was not so much of a present as a curse.

    Now we're not saying we need to treat Pluto's placement in our chart with the same trepidation, but the planet can hold onto secrets.

    According to findyourfate, Pluto is likely to bring about major changes when the beans have been spilt, babe.

    Think drunken texts, heart to hearts and horror of all horrors, hacking into bae's email account. Curiosity killed the cat for a reason dear friends.

    Pluto is also associated with things that we are holding on to in life which we should probably get rid off.

    We know we'll feel better when we do but we also know those old socks are comfortable, despite all the holes…

    Ultimately though, Pluto helps us to progress in life. At the moment the planet is bowling around the determined house of Capricorn and will be there until 2024.

    You can find out which sign your Pluto is in here. Let's what find out what its placement means for us.

    Aries

    Those of us with Pluto in Aries will be chomping at the bit to make our mark on the world.

    Patience isn't the strongest trait of this combo though, so just remember Rome wasn't built in a day.

    Taurus

    Yes, we know you want those red soles Taurus and if you work hard there's no reason why you shouldn't treat yourself.

    Just watch your stubborn streak doesn't become too set in the groove. It pays to be flexible.

    Gemini

    Those of us with this placement in Pluto are likely to bring about major changes in terms of technology and innovation.

    There are so many new ways to get our message to our vast social network. Think video sharing platforms such as TikTok, Triller or Likee.

    Cancer

    This placement makes good friends and parents with an earthmother-like nurturing ability.

    However, they can cry at the drop of the hat and this can impact their relationships. It's usually never that bad Cancer. Don't be so hard on yourself.

    Leo

    This gang makes great leaders, loves the limelight and could quite happily bask in their own glory day.

    However they need constant appreciation for their efforts and could be a tad egotistical. You don't always have to be told you're doing well, sometimes just knowing is enough.

    Virgo

    You definitely want this spreadsheet-obsessed pairing on your side if you're planning anything with precision.

    They have such capable hands but can sometimes be a bit too hands on. No-one really cares if Keith from HR paid £3.69 more than everyone else at Beryl's leaving do. Literally, no-one.

    Libra

    These hard workers put all their efforts into helping themselves and those around them.

    However their impulsive nature can cause them to make hasty decisions over which they'll definitely rue if it all goes pear shaped.

    Scorpio

    This secretive mix is a real daredevil of a combination.

    If your Pluto is in Scorpio you may be attracted to the road less travelled and could get led astray if you don't keep your wits about you.

    Sagittarius

    When Pluto is in the house of Sagittarius, it encourages wanderlust, independence and adventure.

    The problem occurs when this freedom is compromised. We imagine anyone with this chart has felt throughly hemmed in this past year, but hopefully things are beginning to open up.

    Capricorn

    Slow and steady wins the race for this combination. This gang will trek all the way up the mountain until their little goat legs can't carry them any further.

    They are very ambitious with a lot of patience but may not jump out of the box at your birthday party.

    Aquarius

    Those of us with our Pluto in Aquarius tend to be flying around like a whirling dervish.

    We have our own ideas and more often that not don't conform. On the flip-side we sometimes have the tendency to think we know better than others.

    Pisces

    People with Pluto in the house of Pisces are often highly sensitive and emotional.

    They are often more concerned with helping others than themselves. As drag queen legend RuPaul says: "If you can't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?" Amen sister.

    HOW TO DRESS ACCORDING TO YOUR STAR SIGN

    From floaty and floral to sexy glam, tarot card reader Kerry King reveals the ultimate outfit guide according to your star sign.

    Aries – According to Kerry, you, Aries, have swagger, so think fashion choices which draw attention – athleisurewear works for you.

    Aquarius – Anything is possible for you in your eccentric, bombastic and crazy world of Aquarius fashion. Think astronaut suits, vintage wedding gowns, see-through vests, cat-ear hats, you wear whatever you discover in the closet.

    Scorpio – Being rich, powerful, and in control is in your nature but these traits are reflected in you wardrobe too. Think couture, designer labels and blingy statement-jewellery – you love to “power dress”.

    THE STAR SIGN MOST LIKELY TO GET MATCHES ON DATING APPS

    According to Tinder, 18-25 year olds are 29% more likely to match with someone based on a star sign than members over 25.

    What's more, those who straight up identify their sign in their bio consistently rank as a top profile feature.

    Leos may be vain, as demonstrated by the camera emoji often included in their bios, but when it comes to Tinder, they’re definitely at the top of the dating game. 

    They are the only sign to list CEO as their top job – and they’re also most likely to "Flex" in their bios. 

    They get the most "likes" and are the most likely to name their star sign in their bio. So it's safe to say they're killing it at this online dating thing.

    On the flip side, Capricorns are the least likely to include their sign in their bio.

    They’re ambitious, frequently touting their determined nature in their bios, with the inclusion of the "working out" emoji in their bios, which doesn’t leave them with much time for swiping. 

    They have the fewest swipes (right or left) of any sign.

    SPEAK EASY 

    Is your star sign fixed, cardinal or mutable?

    IF you've been checking out our live horoscope blog you'll know there's so much more to astrology than just your star sign.

    Your rising, moon, Lilith and Venus signs all reveal so much about your personality and now there's three more beauties to wrap your head around.

    Express yourself

    There are three modalities in astrology, which are fixed, cardinal or mutable.

    A modality is basically the way something is expressed and each of these groups represent the distinctive way each sign expresses their personality and speaks their mind.

    We know it sounds a bit out there, but trust us all will become clear.

    "The modalities are another way to break down signs and elements," astrologer Lisa Stardust, told Bustle.

    "They represent the sign and element’s ability to move and evolve with time."

    Finding out whether you are a fixed, mutable or cardinal sign can help you make sense of why your energy is so different from your colleagues or why, for instance, you could be scared of commitment.

    Cardinal Signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, & Capricorn

    If something is cardinal, it's fundamental.

    "Cardinal signs are the 'initiators' of the zodiac," says Stardust. "They represent a spark or idea. They also signify the beginning of the season."

    The cardinal signs often come up with the best ideas. They may not be great at always following them through to fruition, but you want these entrepreneurial visionaries on your team.

    Fixed Signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius

    Think of a lion eyeing up its prey and you'll get the idea of the fixed signs' level of focus.

    "Fixed signs are the 'doers' of the zodiac," explains Stardust. "They carry out the ideas manifested by the cardinal signs [and] do all the work needed to complete the task at hand."

    The fixed signs aren't carbon copies of each other, but you better believe they're grafters who will get the job done. Think laser-beam focus on steroids.

    Mutable Signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, & Pisces

    So, if cardinal signs have the idea and fixed signs get the job done, mutable signs saunter in at the 11th hour and take the biscuit.

    "Mutable signs represent the end of each season and the finality of a project or task at hand," Stardust says. "They are flexible due to their understanding of change."

    Life is anything but certain, especially now, but mutable signs can turn on a sixpence and adapt any situation to their advantage.

    They also make light of things, putting a positive spin on the trickiest of times, which is why so many of them go into politics.

    WHERE DOES THE ZODIAC COME FROM?

    The Zodiac is the term used to describe the circle of 12 divisions of celestial longitude that are centred upon the path of the sun.

    The 12 divisions share the names we know as our star signs.

    The term zodiac derives from Latin zōdiacus – meaning “circle of animals”.

    Throughout history, the zodiac has been used to predict or echo characteristics of personality.

    ALL RISE 

    How to find your rising sign explained

    WITH so many signs to read in astrology it can get be a bit of a faff checking them all, but you really should know your rising sign.

    This astral ascendent is basically your public persona and the part of you you reveal when you first meet someone. Some folk think it reveals more about them than their sun sign, so let's take a detailed look at how you can find out yours.

    How do I find my rising sign?

    To calculate your rising sign, you'll need to know the precise time and location you were born.

    You can find out your sign here by simply entering your details and letting the cosmic calculator do the rest.

    It's really important the data you input is as accurate as possible as even one degree of latitude out can skew the reading.

    How do I find out what time I was born?

    To find your rising sign, it's crucial to know your exact time of birth.

    Don’t just text your mum and see if she can remember, you need to be super precise about this.

    According to Astromix even minutes matter when it comes to your rising sign, which apparently changes, on average, every 4 minutes.

    This means that no personal horoscope can be accurate unless you know the time of birth within 1-2 minutes.

    The best way of finding out the exact time you made your way into the world is to check your birth certificate.

    Why is the place I was born important?

    In astrology place of birth and time plays an important role. If it is day in Australia, it is night in the UK, so the effect of the sun and other planets is said to be reversed.

    According to goldringastrology, an error of even one degree in latitude when calculating your chart can affect your rising sign.

    The planets and signs in your chart are located in different houses which are said to be affected depending on where you were born.

    The Zodiac is divided into 12 houses, each of which corresponds to a different area of your life, including relationships, career and finances.

    The fourth house for example symbolises family and is ruled by the sign of Cancer.

    What's the difference between the ascendent and descendent signs?

    The descendant sign in your natal chart is the opposite sign of your ascendant.

    Your ascendant, also called your rising sign is the third most important sign, behind your sun and moon signs.

    Our descendant sign, meanwhile, can be described as our shadow side.

    This sign will help to highlight things we have repressed or parts of our personality we may not be proud of.

    Interestingly, we are drawn to the qualities of this sign in people we meet and relationships we seek because, like the cliche says, opposites attract.

    WOULD YOU MAKE FINANCIAL DECISIONS BASED ON YOUR HOROSCOPE?

    More than half of Brits admit to turning to their horoscopes before making important financial decisions and life choices based on ‘advice’ associated with the zodiac sign.

    Astrologer, Francesca Oddie, said: “People really identify with their star sign and consider astrology a reliable tool for guidance.

    “When it comes to our finances, our horoscope can help us to understand characteristic traits that are reflected in our money management style.”

    In a poll of 2,000 adults, 48 per cent said they are influenced by their star sign’s predictions, with one in three adults using the advice from their sign to make life decisions.

    The research, commissioned by Barclays, found that Aquarius is the most financially confident star sign – with 42 per cent feeling happy with their money managing skills, compared to just 25 per cent of Libras.

    Meanwhile, Virgos are most likely to meet the financial goals they set for themselves and Sagittarians feel most out of touch with their finances as they avoid looking at them.

    BANKING ON THE STARS: HOW MUCH MONEY WILL I MAKE ACCORDING TO MY STAR SIGN?

    GET TO MERC 

    When is Mercury in retrograde in 2021?

    IF you've ever heard someone say "I blame Mercury retrograde" we know exactly what they mean.

    When the planet of communication, travel and technology goes backwards we can expect all sorts of delays, glitches and horror of all horrors, texts sent to the wrong person. Right, we can't even.

    When is Mercury in retrograde in 2021?

    Mercury completes its orbit around the Sun in about 88 days, while the Earth takes 365 days.

    Since Mercury moves faster, it whizzes past the Earth 3-4 times each year.

    As the planet nears us, it appears to slow down, stop, move backward, stop again, then move forward.

    We're exhausted just reading this, but this is why the cycle is known as retrograde from the Latin word "retrogradus" meaning "backward step."

    In 2021, the planet will be in complete retrograde movements during the following dates:

    • January 30 to February 21
    • May 29 to June 22
    • September 27 to October 23

    What should I not do when Mercury is in retrograde?

    Where do we begin? For starters, back up up your phones, double-check your emails and most crucial of all, think before you open your mouth.

    Astrologers advise against several things during this period which inlude:

    • submitting important documents
    • taking short trips
    • buying electronic goods or cars
    • renewing your passport or applying for a visa
    • changing your PINs and passwords
    • getting married (Don't say we didn't warn you!)

    Which star sign does Mercury in retrograde affect the most?

    When Mercury goes retrograde at the end of May, air sign Gemini will feel its effects the most.

    "I’d advise anyone with strong Gemini planetary placements to be especially cautious with anything tech-related," astrologer astrologer Natasha Weber told Bed Threads Journal.

    "Back-up your phones, double-check you’re sending emails to the correct address and most importantly, think before you speak."

    The third and final time Mercury goes retrograde this year sees it travel through the air sign of Libra.

    "Here, both Librans and Aries are in for a relationship revolution," Weber explains, adding that this isn't something to be afraid of.

    "Reassessing your and your partner’s needs will be a top priority at this time.

    "The beauty of this Mercury retrograde is that it will allow these signs to work out what’s been previously swept under the carpet."

    Whether you're a Gemini or Libra or Aries, Mercury retrograde affects us all.

    Just make sure you keep wits about you, triple check everything and all will be well.

    STELL ME MORE 

    What does it mean if you have a stellium in YOUR horoscope?

    IF you've ever met someone who has a super strong personality and seems to display all of one sign's characteristics, they could have been born with a stellium.

    It sounds painful but it's actual super special and very rare. Let's find out what on earth this all means and why if you have a stellium in your chart it could explain ev-er-y-thing.

    What is a stellium in astrology?

    According to elitedaily, a stellium occurs when you've got a collection of the same type of energy within your birth chart.

    This is when you have three or more planets in one specific zodiac sign or astrological house.

    A stellium affects our personality by making certain qualities, characteristics, and themes in your life more apparent than others.

    It makes your personality a lot stronger. In fact, a stellium is so powerful that it can potentially reduce the strength of your sun sign — if it's not in your stellium.

    You can find out if you have a stellium by entering your details into this natal chart from the AstroTwins.

    Let's find out what a stellium in each of the signs means.

    Aries

    According to refinery29, if you have a stellium in Aries you're likely to be, well, extra.

    With all that fiery, Mars-fuelled energy in your chart, you can't help it, but you can tend to get caught up in their own behaviour and need to compete.

    Taurus

    Ok, if you have a stellium in Taurus your clothes, home, dog and even handwriting will be beautiful.

    You love the finer things in life and will stop at nothing until you get them. Just make sure you check your bank balance before you go kray kray with the card.

    Gemini

    This social gang is basically Gemini on steroids. They'll talk a million miles an hour and have soo many friends.

    The only caveat with this is they do have the tendency to gossip. You only have one face Gemini, don't use two.

    Cancer

    Yikes, anyone with a stellium in Cancer will feel all the feels and we mean all.

    We could all use more of this sign's emotional awareness and empathy — but with that comes an increased sensitivity that can make people with this feature in their charts feel wounded easily. That explains that night out then.

    Leo

    We think we know someone who has a stellium in Leo. Life and soul of every party, voice like a foghorn and someone you just can't help to be close to.

    The only glitch with his set-up is when the spotlight's not on them they can get stroppy. Oh, this explains so much.

    Virgo

    If you've got a glut of Virgo in your sign you're going to be next-level organised and when we say organised we sort of mean pedantic.

    Don't let the minutiae of life get to you, yes paying attention to detail is important but not when it gets in the way of you enjoying yourself.

    Libra

    Folk with a stellium in Libra strive so hard to create balance they can end up knocking themselves and their relationships out of sync.

    Masters of second guessing, they can calm the situation by telling themselves that every yin has a yang.

    Scorpio

    If you know anyone with a stellium in Scorpio, they may make it hard work to get close to them.

    However once you've navigated your way around their sting, they'll stick close to you and use all their powers of persuasion.

    Sagittarius

    Like Leo, people with a stellium in Sagittarius are often larger than life characters who are always flanked by friends.

    However, they can come across a little self-absorbed and no amount of joke telling or sparkling wit is going to make that attractive.

    Capricorn

    This Capricorn on steroids is going to let nothing and no-one stand in their way of success.

    While these folk will often go on to achieve greatness they can sometimes be lonely having sacrificed their social life to achieve their goal.

    Aquarius

    Anyone with a stellium in Aquarius can be quite a contradictory character.

    They may crave company but then tell you they want to be alone. However, if they harness this restless energy they can go on to achieve great things, especially philanthropically.

    Pisces

    Anyone lucky enough to have a friend with a stellium in Pisces will know they're the person they call when they're feeling meh.

    This intuitive star picks up on the unspoken and offers heartfelt advice when we need it most. Beautiful.

      WHAT IS A VENUS SIGN?

      Basically, the function of Venus astrologically is to tell us how we gel with people and give and receive love.

      The planet of beauty, love and extreme pleasure tells us a heap of things about the kind of person we are, who we are attracted to and what turns us on.

      It tells us what type of relationship we really need and all the things that give us butterflies.

      THE BEST DIET BASED ON YOUR STAR SIGN

      According to our resident Tarotscope reader Kerry King what you should be eating could be written in the stars.

      She says: “There aren’t many of us who naturally enjoy and relish the idea of dieting, it’s hard to stick to something based on denial.

      “However, you can give yourself a better chance of success if you can align your dieting technique to your star sign.

      “The personality traits and strengths associated with each sign can lead to a great match with a particular diet that won’t turn you ALL the way off. No pain, no gain… but let’s ease the pain.

      MINDFUL MAP 

      What is an astrology natal chart?

      WANT to know who you should marry, whether to ditch that friend with benefits or pack it all in and live on the beach in Thailand?

      Your astrology natal chart may have the answers you're looking for.

      Written in the stars

      An astrology natal chart, more commonly known as a birth chart is a map of where the planets were in their journey around the Sun the exact moment we were born. 

      By getting your astrology chart done you can find almost spookily accurate detail regarding your strengths and weaknesses, who you should say yes to the dress for and even what job you should be doing.

      To calculate your astrology birth chart, you just need your time, date and place of birth.

      We had ours done at The Sun and were amazed by the results!

      Your birth chart tells you where signs including your Moon, Venus, Rising and Lilith are.

      As we know, we're so much more than our sun sign, which is the main zodiac sign we read in our horoscope every day.

      When it comes to love, for example, one of the first signs we need to understand is the moon.

      The moon sign is considered the second most important influence in our horoscope chart after the sun.

      If you have your Moon sign in Taurus for example, you will be very strong emotionally, but once you lock horns with someone you can be extremely headstrong

      Lesser-known Lilith meanwhile reveals more about the darker part of our personality, including any obsessive tendencies we may have – basically that time you stalked your ex on Facebook.

      Secret code

      Astrology enthusiast Elsa Gavriil told us: "Everything my natal chart said was true.

      "I completely recognised myself in it and the inconsistencies as I have a lot of planets that contradict each other.

      "This is why I find it so difficult to pinpoint myself and say: "I am this/Do I want to do this?"'

      According to Tarot.com your birth chart reveals the secret code that will unlock your psyche and all of its potential.

      A deep dive analysis of your chart will help you understand not only your talents, but also your achilles heel.

      We could all do with a bit of guidance, especially now, so why not get your natal chart done and tap into some of its wisdom?
