The Gemstone: Peridot
Fondly nicknamed the 'Evening Emerald' by ancient Romans and 'the Gem of the Sun' by early Egyptians, peridot has been treasured for eons.
Peridots are one of the very few gems that occur only in one hue; though their tone varies from yellowish green to pure green. As per historical records, peridots were first mined in Egypt more than 3,500 years ago. Ancient Egyptians often set these vibrant gems in gold and used them as a powerful talisman against nightmares and evil spirits. They were also regarded as a symbol of peace, good fortune, happiness, and love.
Today, it is believed that wearing peridots will instill confidence, boost self-esteem, and enhance the creativity of its wearer. Those born in this month have a reputation for being incredibly kind. They offer a welcoming light to anyone they see, both strangers and friends. They tend to be open with others because they are unafraid to be themselves. Others tend to trust peridot personalities instantly due to their friendly and welcoming nature.
Those born in August tend to be highly extroverted and effortlessly charming. They don't mind the spotlight or being the center of attention. While they don't seek drama, they're able to take control of a crowd and show conviction when facing a challenge.

The Star Sign: Virgo
AUG 23 - SEP 22
Virgo is an earth sign historically represented by the goddess of wheat and agriculture, an association that speaks to Virgo’s deep-rooted presence in the material world.
Virgos are logical, practical, and systematic in their approach to life. This earth sign is a perfectionist at heart and isn’t afraid to improve skills through diligent and consistent practice.
Virgo rules the digestive system, which makes these earth signs especially attuned to the ingredients that make up a whole — in food and in everything else. They're hyper-aware of every detail.
Virgo is governed by Mercury, the messenger planet of communication. Though Mercury also rules Gemini, these two signs are radically different: Gemini is about output and expression, whereas Virgo is about input and processing.
A Virgo deals with information like a computer, transforming even the most jumbled set of information into organized, clear concepts. Though Virgos long to be meticulous in all pursuits, they must remember that constantly chasing after the ideal can be destructive when applied to self or others.
Beauty exists within our imperfections and it’s important for Virgos to learn that flaws are not defects. Above all else, Virgos want to help, they are kind, compassionate and use their incredible intellect and resourcefulness to problem-solve for themselves and others.
Virgo's opposite sign, Pisces, offers guidance through spirituality, but Virgos want to assist on a practical level. These earth signs are always striving to provide workable solutions and improve broken systems. Methodical, committed, and hardworking, they make excellent teachers, healers, editors, and musicians.
