The Bloodstone is associated with Aries
The spring equinox, March 21, is the beginning of the new zodiacal year. Aries, the first sign, is therefore the Sign of discovery and new beginnings.
The Arian is a pioneer both in thought and action, very open to new ideas and a lover of freedom.
They welcome challenges and will not be diverted from their purpose except by their own impatience, which will surface if they don't get quick results.
Aries are often very brave leaders with a genuine concern for those they lead.
They are very responsible people, Aries are always people that are delving into new ideas and new projects. They are curious and energetic.
For those born under the sign of Aries, the traditional zodiac stone is the Bloodstone. Bloodstones are green jasper dotted with bright red spots of iron oxide.
This attractive chalcedony quartz is also known as heliotrope because in ancient times polished stones were described as reflecting the sun. It is not expensive, and since it is pretty hard, it takes a good polish and can be quite attractive set in a ring or pendant.
Legend tells us the Bloodstone, or heliotrope had the power to cause thunder, lightening, rain, and tempest. It has traditionally been believed that the Bloodstone brings its wearer consideration and respect, and guards him from deception.
The bloodstone is used today in many ways. It is used to amplify the Universal Life Force to give its wearer courage, wealth, strength, victory, power, and strength in new enterprises.
If you are an Aries, a Bloodstone should be in your pocket all the time.
It is your stone.
It will bring you respect and guard you from being cheated or deceived.
