As humans, we feel the need to understand + evaluate ourselves and each other on a daily basis. Our self awareness is what sets us apart from so many other beings in this world, and we are fascinated by it. I have long been interested in the Zodiac signs and their amazing ability to discern personalities and events based solely on birth dates. Recently, I have seen more and more people like me have started connecting with the universe and wanting to find out as much information as possible.
After thorough research, I learned that each of our Sun Sign's have specific power gemstones that lend to our unique traits. Below is what I was able to gather. Remember, although these are suggestions on how you can better harness the power of your Sun Sign, gemstones + crystals often choose us before we choose them. Don't discard a gemstone that you feel a connection with just because it is not listed with your sun sign. We all have our own paths.
Aries Power Gemstones:
With your ruling planet being Mars, you have a spark + fire that is uniquely distinguishable from the other signs. You are a pioneer and find excitement in competition. Although you do not quake at the idea of being assertive, you take great pride in your integrity—especially when it comes to your passions. As an Aries, you are independent, fearless, courageous, and a natural leader. Moreover, you are proud to have these qualities, and because of this it is important for you to de-stress and relax so that you can prominently be at your best. You find that you have a tendency to put an enormous amount of pressure on yourself, and it is easy to get caught in that if you do not take the time to pause and recharge.
To make the most of these impressive traits for yourself and for your presence in a crowd, we suggest you turn to your power gemstones for enhancement. The three best stones for Aries are Carnelian, Citrine, and Garnet. Carnelian is a reddish-orange stone is gives off a strong presence and lends to your intuition. Citrine is a yellow stone and has long been used for power in manifesting dreams and desires by connecting with your intentions.

Neptune is your ruling planet, which correlates to your selfless, empathetic, and compassionate personality. By nature, you want to take care of others and often put yourself on the line to do so.

In the circumstances that you are not you have a unique ingenuity to make up for it. Unfortunately, as an empath, you are sometimes vulnerable to others negative energy or outlooks. They may drain you or effect a situation you are in significantly.
