Libra: The Lover and Artist (September 23–October 22)
Birthstone: Herkimer Diamond and the Search for Harmony
The symbol for Libra is the scale of justice, representing this sign’s affinity for balance and harmony. Those themes are seen in all areas of a Libra’s life, from relationships to the home environment. Libra is the home of Venus, the goddess of love, harmony and beauty. Gemstones are the perfect way of finding the balance that Libras seek.
Gemstones have both physical and metaphysical qualities that can enhance all aspects of your well-being. The perfectly aligned crystal structure of gemstones creates an energy field that interacts with our own. In this way, the gemstone can be used to calm you, balance, bring you mental clarity, increase your energy, enhance your creativity, and much more.
The Herkimer Diamond has a very special place among the gems because of its superior qualities. It is worn most beneficially over the heart. Sitting on the heart chakra, which is the middle one of the seven, it balances the whole energetic system. Thus it is able to strengthen our auric field against all kinds of radiation, including electro smog and negative thought projections. The Herkimer Diamond in its perfection balances through strengthening our own energy field.
This stone also strengthens our auric field against negative emotional or mental projections. I have made many Herkimer Diamond pendants for people who work in the healing professions to help them stabilize and treat their clients without picking up their imbalances. The more sensitive you are the more likely you are to pick up on disharmony in your outer field. The Herkimer Diamond is your ally in maintaining your own balance and strength.
Balancing the Brain
This stone also balances the right and left hemispheres of the brain, the creative and logical, the female and the male sides in us. Most of us tend toward one side or the other. The Herkimer Diamond balances us out in the middle between the two. The creative mind and the logical and scientific mind are enhanced by each other’s qualities: the creative mind benefits from greater focus and logic and the scientific mind draws on more creative and intuitive resources. The two hemispheres join forces, resulting in inventions and discoveries beyond the known.
