Now we’ve all heard that if you’re born in a particular month, you have a designated birthstone that’s somehow connected to you. Birthstones can actually reveal a lot about your personality, so read on to see if it holds true for you!
January – Garnet
If you were born in the first month of each new year, your stone empowers you with confidence, energy, and strong willpower. Garnets were worn by warriors because of their supposed ability to warn us about impending danger. Hence, Jan-borns are spontaneous, feisty and don’t shy away from the unknown!
February – Amethyst
Our February kay bachay are very zen. The amethyst stone represents spirituality, peace, and harmony. People born under this stone are honest and loyal. They are known for being too quiet at times but their humility is their shining trait.
March – Aquamarine
Associated with the ocean this blue-green stone is said to be the prized possession of mermaids! If aquamarine is your birthstone, you have a knack for “calming the waters” in disputes around you. You are a keen observer with a love for travel and communication skills that no one can match!
April – Diamond
Just as their stone is one of the hardest substances on Earth, April babies are strong-headed and determined. They have excellent memories but tend to make hasty decisions and can be notoriously stubborn!
May – Emerald
If this is your birthstone, you are highly focused and determined on your goals. You’re highly driven and tend to take charge of situations even when you don’t have to. You can’t stand to sit idle… you have to stay proactive at all times.
June – Pearl
With an organic stone like the pearl, June children are soft-spoken and sensitive; but at the same time are imaginative and extremely intuitive. They have great self-esteem and a knack for appreciating those around them especially nature. So if you’re a June baby, animals are definitely your thing.
July – Ruby
This deep red stone brings with it a certain flair and drama. Our rubies may be moody but are confident, determined and fiercely loyal. So if you’re going to depend on a friend, depend on one born in July.
August – Peridot
Popular amongst the Ancient Egyptians, this green stone is all about strength. Those born in August are warm, fuzzy creatures with a strong healing effect on those around them – buri nazar say bachna toh koi in say seekhay!
September – Sapphire
A nice deep blue, Sapphires make you dignified, loyal, pure, wise and extremely generous. September babies are fun people to hang out with but definitely not people you want to double-cross. They notice everything and tend to be mentally very strong.
October – Opal
October-born folks are nice, chatty people. They are highly creative, emotional and loving. Also a protective stone, they protect people around them from bad vibes and decisions but tend to prefer to be in the background of most situations.
November – Yellow Topaz
This stone is associated with stability. November babies are great home-makers and highly protective of their loved ones. They are patient and have a knack for comforting those in hardship. They form strong bonds with others and friendships that tend to last a lifetime.
December – Turquoise
A unique stone as it’s found in very few places on Earth, it represents good fortune. If this is your birthstone, you love attention and value honesty. You’re very charming and know how to get your way!
