What is the Scorpio Birthstone?
Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac. The Scorpio birthstone is Topaz. Topaz comes in many shades but the Yellow Topaz is best for those who share the Scorpio star sign. Topaz means empathy and serenity. Scorpios are born between October 23rd and November 22nd. The element of Scorpio is water and the ruling planet is Pluto or Mars.
The Bravest Friend
With their house symbol as the scorpion with its stinger in motion, people tend to consider Scorpios as being a fire sign – all feisty energy and force. Yet contrary to popular belief, Scorpio’s are actually a water sign, which makes them emotional and a touch more sensitive than you would think. Scorpios are one of the most complex zodiac signs in the pack. They are ruled by Pluto and Mars. Mars is the God of War and definitely brings his dangerous energy and the sting to the Scorpio. Pluto is the God of the Underworld and represents the darker side of the Scorpio. But Pluto was also the god of wealth and this echoes the ambitious nature of the Scorpio sign.
While darkness and war seem like negative traits, it actually can be used to sum up Scorpios in a different way. Scorpios are brave and fearless, curious, and creative, and they are dutifully determined in every task they take to hand. They are loyal friends and their bravery means that they don’t hesitate to leap into action when it comes to problem-solving.
The Scorpio star sign works well with healing crystals that help them to balance out their emotional intensity and bring a burst of sunlight and positive power to their shadow side. We love a star sign that doesn’t shrug off their shadow side but works to embrace it beautifully, having a stone that can balance that even more helps the Scorpio to let down their stinger once in a while. Take a look at these prettily picked stones that are to keep Scorpios in sublime check.
