With its golden color, Gold is a natural birthstone of people born in mid Summer, 22 July through 21 August.
Gold is associated with Leo. According to Wikipedia, Leo is the fifth astrological sign of the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Leo. It's found in the eastern sky. In western astrology, this sign is no longer aligned with the constellation as a result of the precession of the equinoxes. In astrology, Leo is considered a "masculine", positive (extrovert) sign. It is also considered a fire sign and is one of four fixed signs.
Leo is ruled by the Sun. Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Leo individuals. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun is in Leo roughly from July 23 to August 22. Under the sidereal zodiac, it is currently there roughly from August 17 to September 16.
Gold is reported to bring about a sense of calm and open you to the manifest abundance of the universe.
Other practitioners report that Gold is very grounding. It is used to develop and mature a love of the earth as the Earth Mother. It brings you significant understanding of nature and man's true role in protecting the environment.
