Aquamarine, the birthstone associated with the month of March, is named for its resemblance to the waters of the sea. It embodies both the tumultuous potential and the calming effects of the ocean. The powerful effects of its influence on the mind, body, and spirit reflect its mythological origins as a treasure protected by mermaids on the seafloor.
Numerous ancient traditions associate aquamarine with mental clarity and power, and with a decisiveness of communication. Eastern traditions associate aquamarine with the throat chakra, granting increased capabilities and reduced fears when it comes to public speaking and giving voice to your innermost truths.
This March birthstone also inspires courage. Clarified perception and increased sensitivity combine with a foundation of calm and strength that comes directly from the ocean itself.
In healing applications, aquamarine is used to soothe sore throats, swollen glands, and thyroid issues. It is also supposed to be protective of both mother and child during pregnancy and birth, and helps regulate hormones and strengthen the immune system.
The Aquamarine’s Character
You have a quiet, confident strength that rears up when necessary; though not prone to aggression or chaos, you are a tremendous force to be reckoned with when obstacles appear. Clarity of thought translates into clarity of action, enabling you to pursue your goals.
