The sun left Virgo on September 22, which means we are well into Libra season by now ( I know, I'm late!). Following the Fall Equinox, Libra is the true sign of autumn, when the length of the days and nights come into balance. Libras love balance and harmony, but because they always see both sides of everything, they are often indecisive. If you have been out to eat with a Libra friend, you know what I am talking about!

Libra Traits 

Last month, I launched a new collection featuring Turquoise, so I have had Turquoise on the brain lately. Let’s be honest, I almost always reach for turquoise first! (You can read all about the history of Turquoise in jewelry making here.) As is turns out, Turquoise is often associated with the sign of Libra. Maybe that’s why I like it so much? I’m an Aries, Libra is opposite Aries, opposites attract….anyway….

Although the traditional birthstone for October babies is the opal, when choosing birthstones based on the Zodiac, there are a lot of options. Some other common Libra stones are; Tourmaline, Ametrine (which is a combination of Amethyst and Citrine) and Lapis.

I've actually been dreaming of Zodiac Birthstones for a while now! 
So..... I just started a new collection of these tiny, adorable, dainty a.f. alternative birthstone necklaces!
So far only Libra is up, but the rest are coming as soon as I can make them all! 

Turquoise is known to promote harmony and peace, which fits right into the Libra MO. It also improves communication and clear thought, a useful thing for your indecisive Libra friend (self;).

No matter what you sign is, wearing Turquoise has a centering and grounding effect, helping you to feel more balanced. 

Just the thing for this wacky year we are in!

Ahhh I love the idea of alternative birth stone necklaces! Can’t wait for Sagittarius….comin’ right up! Although, I’m a Scorpio rising soooooo….hey! Weren’t you talking about little clusters of, say, Rising, Sun and Moon signs? That would be cool. I’d love to see what my three are :)
