Capricorn is considered to be one of the most persistent and determined zodiac signs of all. So it only makes sense that the birthstone associated with it be a worthy one too. Hence, the Garnet is the principal Capricorn birthstone. The sea-goat has a plethora of qualities that are extremely sought after. With Earth as the ruling element, they are the epitome of practicality and groundedness. The symbol is that of a hybrid with the upper body of a goat and the lower body of a fish. Just as the ram climbs the steep hills to reach the peak and enjoy the fresh grass, the people born under the sign are capable of scaling any obstacle once they put their mind to it. The fish is the representation of the philosophy, bestowing upon the person with the ability of in-depth thought and introspection. Combine these two and you get a zodiac sign capable of tackling corporal and spiritual hurdles with equal ease. Let’s come to the birthstone now, but before that, we need to understand what a birthstone is and how it relates to the zodiac sign.
Zodiacs and birthstones – a love story.
A birthstone is simply a gemstone assigned at the time of birth. The date, time, and place of birth determine the zodiac sign of a person. Every sign has its corresponding stones that bring harmony and prosperity when included in the lives of people under those signs. Since there can be more than one stone associated with the sign, each stone holds significance in different facets of life. For Capricorns, the gemstone is Garnet. The blue sapphire is believed to bring with it not just the beautiful blue aura, but an enhanced sense of responsibility. A birthstone is supposed to enhance the personality traits and qualities of the zodiac sign. The Garnet achieves this by instilling a desire for higher ambitions, the rest is handled by the inherent determination and perseverance of the sign. The Capricorn birthstone is known for its influence and arousing intense feelings in people. Apart from the principle stone Garnet, there are other stones associated with Capricorn.
What if I don’t like Garnet? Is there something else I can wear?
Of course, you can! It’s said that Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but the best friend of Capricorn are Onyx, Ruby, Peridot, Blue Topaz among many others. Each of these stones governs different aspects of their lives. Just as Garnet brings intimacy into the life of Capricorns, these birthstones bring different emotions when worn by the sea-goat. The Capricorn birthstone is just as varied as Capricorn themselves are. You can wear any one of these stones in the form of pendants, rings, or even earrings. How and where to wear them is determined by the birth chart of the person. However, the effects are universal for each of the stones. Black Onyx is the harbinger of power. Just wearing a black gemstone already gives a sense of power but the mix of onyx and Capricorn is power personified. Next, Ruby is said to bring passion to the life. The red color is often portrayed as the color of passion. It fills the wearer with an appreciation for everything around them, including themselves. The desires buried deep in the hearts of the wearer are brought to the surface by the Capricorn birthstone. Positive emotions such as happiness, confidence, and love are enhanced while negative emotions including sadness, depression, and jealousy are diminished. The next birthstone is Peridot. The breathtakingly green gemstone is believed to bring spirituality to the wearer. With green being the color of nature, it calms down the wearer and washes over them a sense of tranquility. With such calmness realized, spirituality is not too far away. Last but not least is Blue Topaz. Although generally yellow or brown, the Capricorn birthstone is known for its brilliant blue shine. The blue hue is associated with Saturn, which is also the ruling planet for the sea-goat. The stone brings the wearer wealth, prosperity, and achievement. The determination of the Capricorns is rewarded when they wear this stone. There are so many things to wear, so many stones to adore, choose the color you like best, or the one which would help you in your ambitions.
