It is officially Aquarius season! Aquarius is one of my favourite signs of the zodiac. Why? They are original and freethinkers who have a humanitarian outlook. They genuinely want to help the world in whatever way they are able.
I have created two pieces in my zodiac collection for Aquarians that would make a beautiful birthday gift for these extraordinary souls.
The pieces feature a sterling silver Aquarius symbol bead (or charm) and an amethyst gemstone that resonates strongly with Aquarius. Aquarius is known as the “Water Bearer” and is represented by two wave-like lines. This symbol has been said to represent the humanitarian nature of Aquarius. Water is essential to life on earth. Aquarians embody the "bringer of water" (and life) to earth by sharing their future oriented ideas, innovations, and actions with the world.
I will outline more about the qualities of Aquarius, and the gemstones that resonate strongly with them.
You will find that people who share the same sun sign don’t always appear to be that similar. That is because everyone’s birth chart is a unique blueprint and a mixture of many variables. However, everyone whose sun sign is Aquarius will (outwardly or inwardly) have some or all of these characteristics to varying degrees.
- Element: Air
- Symbol: Water Bearer. (Two wave-like lines)
- Modality: Fixed
- Independent. Walks to the beat of their own drum.
- Open-minded and intellectually oriented.
- Sometimes seen as eccentric because their ideas and actions are not mainstream.
- Values freedom in mind, body, and soul.
- Very interested in technology and how things work.

Aquarius Zodiac Jewelry
I chose amethyst as the main gemstone to work with for the Aquarius pieces. Amethyst is also the gemstone associated with the month of February.
Amethyst is a powerful and protective stone. It is known to activate spiritual awareness and enhance intuition. It has strong healing and cleansing powers. It calms and stimulates the mind which helps with concentration and memory.

Oprah Winfrey is a famous Aquarian who I have admired for a long time. There are many wonderful quotes by her. The following quote sums up the Aquarian thinking very well. “The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be.” – Oprah Winfrey. Simple but profound.
Aquarians are the unicorns of the zodiac. By being true to who they are, and expressing themselves authentically in the world, they inspire others to do the same. What we may learn from them is to love what makes us unique, and to live our truth. It is no wonder that I have a special fondness for this sign!
