Virgo is an earth sign. Those born under this sign are typically very grounded, logical, systematic, and hard working. They are great at sticking to routines, making things like exercising regularly easier for them. Virgos are not only very reliable and systematic, but they are also elegant, witty, and beautiful communicators. They take the time to find the right words before expressing themselves.
They are amazing problem solvers who seek perfection and devote a lot of time to assessing a situation before addressing it. Because they are very aware of small details, their need for things to be just right might make them more critical. They tend to take things slow in relationships and can be cautious when it comes to love. Overall, they make great friends, coworkers, and partners with many wonderful characteristics.
Every amazing Virgo characteristic presents a unique restriction. Virgos are incredibly aware of tiny details, which has epic positives, but it might make them too critical, which can close them off from other people and opportunities.
Sapphire, Peridot, and Lapis Lazuli are not only August and September birthstones, they are thought to help Virgos maintain balance in their life, become more open to love, and most importantly, be less critical of others and themselves.
Blue Sapphire symbolizes wisdom and encourages several things which are important to Virgos, like truth, kindness, communication, and knowledge.
Perhaps the most vitally important blue sapphire trait for Virgos, is that it is a stone of self-awareness and wise judgment. Because the Virgo is so detail orientated and sees every aspect of a situation, they can sometimes be overly critical. Deeper self-awareness and wiser judgment help the Virgo fight against being overly critical of oneself and others. It is worn to inspire compassion, which will make the Virgo stronger through the ability to accept others and themselves the way they are.
Although all sapphires are stones of wisdom, each color of Sapphire brings its own unique wisdom. Pink Sapphire represents both power and kindness, and is said to immensely help those Virgos who are looking for love.
Because Virgos are very cautious when it comes to relationships, it might be hard for them to let go of control and routine in order to fall in love, or make room for a new relationship in their life. Pink Sapphire helps with this as it inspires love on all levels, physical, spiritual, and universal, and can be worn by the love seeking Virgo to become more confident and open to finding their significant other.
Lapis Lazuli is a beautiful dark blue, gold-color speckled, alternative birthstone for september. Being a heart chakra stone, it encourages the Virgo’s self-expression, as well as helps accomplish goals and find the right answer.
Lapis Lazuli is an important talisman for Virgos because it brings deep peace. Rest is crucial to the hard-working, perfectionist Virgo to avoid burning out. Besides this, the gorgeous gemstone also aids in the expression of feelings in relationships. Virgos are amazing communicators, but their logical nature could neglect the importance of expressing feelings and emotions if they are very focused on the practical aspects of a situation. Lapis Lazuli is a wonderful stone that can help the Virgo in expressing their emotions.
Peridot is perfect for Virgos who are ready to receive all the gifts that the universe has to offer, it is said to emit love and abundance.
It symbolizes inner lightness, safety, exclusive durability, and most importantly, balance and craving for life. Because of this, peridot is not only an immensely powerful stone for any Virgo but the perfect gemstone for the Virgo who has a difficult time striking a balance between work and their personal life. Peridot is thought to help maintain equilibrium.
The detail-focused, hard-working Virgo could benefit from it by prioritizing more time to relax and perhaps step out of their comfort zone by getting away from routine from time to time.
