The Gemstone: Red Garnet
Red garnets have a rich, long history that dates back to ancient Egypt when early Egyptians used them to make jewelry items and for decorating carvings.
According to legend, Noah used a garnet lantern to guide his ark through the darkness.
Additionally, people of various cultures throughout history have used garnets as talismans for good luck and protection during travel.
Garnets are also associated with passion, friendship, health, love, strong feelings, and emotions.
We all know someone with a garnet personality: the mom who attends every PTA meeting while working full-time and keeping the house spotless, the go-getter who takes on new projects and works overtime to get ahead, the fearless student with a full course load, part-time job, and noisy roommates.

The Star Sign: Aquarius
JAN 20 - FEB 18
Despite the word "aqua" in its name, Aquarius is actually the last air sign of the zodiac. Aquarius is represented by the water bearer, the mystical healer who bestows water, or life, upon the land. Accordingly, Aquarius is the most humanitarian astrological sign. These revolutionary thinkers fervently support “power to the people,” aspiring to change the world through radical social progress.
Every Aquarian is a rebel at heart: These air signs despise authority and anything that represents conventionality. Free-spirited and eccentric, they can often be identified by their offbeat fashion sensibilities, unusual hobbies, and nonconformist attitude.
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet that governs innovation, technology, and surprising events. Uranus perfectly mirrors Aquarius's distinctive attitude, complementing the nontraditional nature of these visionary air signs. Aquarians are big thinkers but mustn't forget their immediate surroundings. These water bearers can become so focused on implementing widespread reform that they neglect their family and friends, gaining a reputation for being aloof and distant in relationships.
Aquarians should remember that progress always starts on a micro level and advocate empathy wherever possible.
Like Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio, the other fixed signs of the zodiac, Aquarius can have a bit of a stubborn streak. This is often considered an Achilles’ heel. (In fact, in medical astrology Aquarius governs the ankles.) Aquarian obstinacy stems from strong, righteous conviction and it's quelled as soon as an Aquarius gets the chance to enact change. Because these water bearers are so deeply motivated by the spirit of egalitarianism, they enjoy teamwork and participating in communities of like-minded individuals.
However, Aquarians also need plenty of space and time on their own to reflect, form ideas, and plan their role in the revolution. Ultimately, freedom is of the utmost importance for Aquarians, who view challenges to their independence as power-hungry attempts to control them. To win an Aquarian's trust, don't try to reign in their quirks or keep them from flying their freak flag high — Aquarius thrives on shock value.
