It’s time to talk about Scorpios. The eighth zodiac sign.
The birthstone of the Scorpio is called Topaz, which is a stone of different shades. The shade most associated with Scorpios is the yellow Topaz. It is felt that yellow Topaz is the clearest and most close representation of the Scorpio.
People who have a birthday between October 23rd and November 21st fall under the Scorpio zodiac sign. They are ruled by the planet Mars, and sometimes Pluto. The Scorpio symbology is a scorpion poised with its sting.
A Valiant Companion
Scorpios can often suffer from a mistaken personality. People may perceive a Scorpio as dark, and they’d be right. But their darkness is only a shade of who they are.
They are governed by both the God of War, Mars, and the God of the Underworld, Pluto. Pluto has also been known as the God of Wealth. As you’d expect, these all play a role in the makeup of a Scorpio.
You could, in fact, describe a person with the Scorpio zodiac sign as fire and water all in one. The yin to their own yang.
Alongside the scorpion, which typically represents a fieriness, they are governed by water as well. A Scorpio is typically a water sign.
So they are full of strong energy and strength while also being highly sentimental and empathetic, and sensitive. They are certainly a many faced personality type.
Mars represents the fieriness behind Scorpios, as the God of War. Expect conflict and bravery, turbulence and comradery.
Pluto shows their inclination for darkness and self reflection, while also exhibiting their ambition.
Gemstones For Scorpios
Our first focus is healing gemstones. Healing gemstones allow a generous challenge to the instinctively darker nature of the Scorpio.
Scorpios often need a lighter touch in their life, some positive element to push through and fragment their darkness.
This isn’t to say that the healing stones completely diminish and dismiss the darkness and shadows. Scorpios need their darkness, it is such an integral part of their personality.
The lightness is there to provide a balance. A reality check, if you will. So that they can still maintain who they are, while also seeing an alternate, lighter perspective. You can think of it like the daytime, a breaking dawn on their nighttime ventures.
It’s really important to a Scorpio to maintain who they are. They are strong-willed and powerfully loyal to those that they trust and hold close.
Because of their turbulent nature, which can’t be helped, Scorpios are extremely emotional. They are in touch with their emotions, but they aren’t always in control of them.
This is not dissimilar from other star signs. However, a Scorpio has more darkness to contend with and control.
Therefore, they often need a helping hand. Something to keep their personality, feelings, and actions in reality and accountable. An influencing calm, if you will.
Healing gemstones and crystals are, therefore an essential part of a Scorpio’s well-being. They can provide balance and peace that no other gemstone is capable of doing.
They will never show you their vulnerable side unless they trust you implicitly, and even then, it can be a challenge for them.
Topaz – Scorpio Birthstone
Topaz is the first stone to discuss. It is the primary stone of the Scorpio, and it is also the official birthstone.
Topaz can be found in blue, yellow, brown, green, red, orange, pink, and purple. Each color has a slightly altered representation of what it can do for the owner.
Blue and yellow are the best colors of Topaz for a Scorpio, as we will see below.
Blue Topaz – Scorpio Birthstone
Our first discussion is around the blue topaz stone. Blue Topaz can help combat anything that may overwhelm a Scorpio and therefore, throws them off track.
A Scorpio can be easily overpowered by everything going on around them as they take on a big load, constantly.
They are always on the go, ultimately preferring to keep moving and smashing tasks left right, and center as opposed to sitting down and letting things lie.
Blue Topaz’s token features are those of communication and compassion. When you keep a Blue Topaz, you channel the urge for truth and kindness.
So, you see how it is a good antithesis to a Scorpio’s personality, which can sometimes lean towards darker methods and non-communication in the things that they do
And the way that they conduct their life. It also symbolizes forgiveness, which a Scorpio may often need to seek from their peers.
When it comes to being overwhelmed, which can happen typically owing to the high-powered nature of a Scorpio’s personality type, a Blue Topaz can contribute to a sense of peace and relaxation.
This is an essential way to calm the anxieties that often come with such a forceful mindset. With regard to communication, Blue Topaz acts as an intermediary.
It quells the frequent harshness with which a Scorpio may communicate with others around them.
Yellow Topaz – Scorpio Birthstone
Now we’ve seen all the things that Blue Topaz can do for a Scorpio, let’s take a look at Yellow Topaz.
Yellow Topaz’s focus is on the relationships in the Scorpio’s life.
We know by now that someone born into the eight zodiac signs is a passionate person. Well, this passion can regularly lead them down the path to jealousy.
A fit of strong, overpowering jealousy that they typically struggle to fully control and anticipate.
Before they even blink, they can become consumed by it. Jealousy can lead to devastating actions and irreparable relationships within the space of minutes. So, in order to keep this jealousy under wrap, Yellow Topaz is used.
Yellow Topaz is also used to encourage self belief and self recognition. A Scorpio can often be plagued with self-doubt and the inability to get past the darker thoughts. Yellow Topaz boosts confidence and encourages a realization of ability.
Moss Agate – Scorpio Birthstone
It is a moss colored gemstone. Moss agate is an apt gemstone for Scorpios because it is a gemstone of balance, peace, and emotional leveling.
It is the best companion for anyone who has very futile emotional responses or personality traits that overbear other traits.
It is also a powerful healing stone. This translates to emotional as well as physical healing.
They are particularly useful for a Scorpio who has come into conflict because of their fiery nature and needs a helping hand towards healing a relationship or an inner conflict that they are finding it hard to move forward from.
Fire Agate – Scorpio Birthstone
Fire agate is an orange gemstone with yellow splashes and red.
Its main properties include an overall calming element and a protective element too. The main draw of the fire agate for Scorpio is that it will protect them from themselves.
It will help the owner to step away from the darkest parts of themselves that can often lead to self-doubt, self-torture, and other painful, negative thoughts and energy.
If a Scorpio is in possession of a fire agate, they will feel more empowered to keep their feet on the ground and keep their personality in check.
There is an increased chance of a bigger sense of energy, and positive energy flow. Calmness does not come naturally to a Scorpio.
Ruby – Scorpio Birthstone
Rubies are a red stone, sometimes with specks of black as well.
Rubies are good for Scorpios as a way to channel their passions. Sometimes, a Scorpio can get carried away with a passionate spree. This could be a very passionate emotional response, for example, a jealous spree.
It could also be a passionate caring spree, for example fighting for a cause close to their heart. Whatever the reason, their passion is often ignited into a wildfire and spreads somewhat uncontrollably.
Rubies don’t heat up your passions. Rubies take that high intensity of passion and emotion, and they find a way to radiate it, control it despite the magnanimous nature of it.
Obsidian – Scorpio Birthstone
Obsidian is a black stone, and can sometimes have sparkles and specks undulating the blackness.
Obsidian’s main purpose for a Scorpio is to protect them. You can think of it as a protective cloak, there to help with you the big decisions and the dark impulses.
It is a reminder to check the outcome of a situation before diving headfirst into it. Scorpios are frequently undeniably impulsive in their decisions and the way they choose to live their life.
Lots of actions are snap decisions, made impulsively and without much or any thought at all.
Scorpios need something in their life, not to keep them in check as such, but to remind them gently to do it for themselves. And, this is what the obsidian gemstone can do for a Scorpio.
How To Use The Stones
So now we have learned all about the gemstones that work well for a Scorpio personality.
The next point of discussion is how to use these stones in order to gain their wisdom and protection. There are lots of ways that you can use the gemstones to feel close to them so that they have the maximum impact on your healing and emotional journey.
The following list is by no means exclusive, but these are the main ways that you can use gemstones to your advantage in the most effective way.
1. Wear The Gemstones
The easiest, and fastest way to gain protection from the gemstones that work best with Scorpio birthstone is to wear them. You can make all sorts of jewelry with the different gemstones for a Scorpio.
You can make a ring, bracelet, necklace, earrings, whatever you fancy. One could even incorporate the gemstones into a headband if you wish.
Put them on a belt, a bag, a purse, your shoes. The key is to wear them or carry them with you closely.
There are certain advantages to making a gemstone necklace or bracelet. And there’s no arguing the fact that the closer the gemstone is to your skin, the bigger the impact it will have.
You can simply wear a crystal amulet around your neck hanging there if you have a certain gemstone crystal in mind to guide you.
If you are undecided, you can combine a number of different gemstones together. The more you use, the bigger the shield of protective energy will surround you.
2. Take A Bath
Another way of getting all the benefits from your gemstones is to create a relaxation chamber. A good way of doing this is by running a nice hot bath.
While the bath is filling up, surround the bathroom and the edges of the bath with your chosen gemstones. This can be a particular one or a selection of gemstones. It all depends on how you are feeling and what you need.
This method is good for specific healing sessions. If you have had a particularly emotional fuelled day, a bath surrounded by healing crystals is a pretty good way to wind down and channel some healing.
If you are having specific problems, for example, a fit of jealousy, use your yellow Topaz. You can even put them gems in the water so that you are closer to them and the bath itself is surrounded by the energy and colors from the crystals.
3. Decorate Your Bedroom Or Living Space
If you decorate your bedroom or living space with your healing stones, you will have a consistent and safe zone where you can go to work through and control your emotional responses.
You will have a place where you instantly feel better, without any effort on your part whatsoever.
Everybody, especially those who experience very strong and futile sentimental incidents, need a place where they can sit, think and reflect, and be surrounded by more positive and influencing energy.
You can simply decorate by placing the stones around. Or you might want to display them in a cabinet. You can have candleholders made with gemstones. There are so many options.
Regardless of what you choose, the outcome will be the same. The area you create can have a lasting impact on your spiritual healing, and mental well-being.
It can shape the way you feel when you wake up in the morning and go to sleep at night.
It can keep you calm when you are asleep, and it can send the right types of energy into the room when you start your day. You can even combine all three methods and create the ultimate healing journey.
Some days you may need your gemstones more than others. Emotional responses are never linear, and neither is healing. That is the beauty of leaning on a healing crystal.
Scorpio Gemstones And How To Cleanse Them
The main function of a crystal is healing in one form or another. There are many ways that this can take shape and there are many outcomes depending on which gemstone or healing crystal you chose to use and work through.
But, just like any possession, there will come a time when your gemstone starts to look a bit dull and need some tender love and care. This is known as charging your stones, as well as cleaning them.
It is a way to refresh their spiritual energy and renew it through the process of respect and cleansing. The easiest and most simple way to clean your healing stones is by submerging them in warm, clean water.
You can clean them gently with any cloth or sponge while they are submerged in the water until they seem clean.
Then simply remove them from the pool and dry them off, rubbing gently to replenish their energy and power.
If you want to boost their energy, potential, and healing, even more, there are a few extra steps that you can take. These include using a moonlight stone shard, or a sunlight stone slant.
These powerful stones can boost anything that you want them to. They carry their own strong healing properties.
You can also use some sage on stones that require a more gentle touch or are particularly delicate. All that is required is a small piece of sage, and you simply rub it on the stone slowly and gently.
Final Thoughts On Scorpio Birthstones
Scorpio’s personality is one that needs to be monitored. A Scorpio should always have resources at their disposal in order to properly control and fine tune any of their strong, dark, and negative emotions that may be coursing through them at any given time.
They are so brave and loyal to their companions. But if you betray them, or break their trust in any way, they can also be brave and fierce opponents.
They won’t let things lie, they do not forgive easily, and they do not ever shy away from a fight or a conflict.
They find it hard to communicate and reach a resolution, and they have a tendency towards depreciating themselves and all that they are capable of doing.
There are a lot of positive things that healing crystals can do for a Scorpio, and they may just give them a sense of peace that they would not be able to achieve by themselves.
