Crystals For Aquarius
If you were born from January 20 - February 18, you are an Aquarius.
The mid-winter season is the time that represents the Zodiac sign Aquarius. The image that we created in ancient times to represent this sign is the Water Bearer. The symbol is also known as the "Water Carrier". The Water Bearer is said to give life and spiritual food to the world. The water from the Water Bearer is supposed to wash away the past leaving you with a new present lifestyle. Aquarians desire the truth of all things. They hate to be lied to because then they feel as if they weren't worth the truth in the first place. If they are proven wrong they will admit their mistake and apologize. They try their very best to understand both sides of an argument because they like knowing both points of view. When the vibrant green rays of growth combine with the yellow of pure sunshine, the powerful color ray of olive is produced. The combination awakens us to the possibilities that are rapidly developing. As life on Earth, still in high bloom, sees the promise of the approaching hot summer sun and a time of less vigorous, yet strong growth, we can use the olive crystals to focus our efforts that began well but now need strength to mature.
