happy new month, gems!

september is coming in strong with the energy of endings, renewal and the truth coming to light. as we adjust to these energies, we will need to find our inner balance by going within.

the birthstone for this month is a perfect companion on this journey.

the sapphire comes in many colors which include pink, black, orange, yellow, purple and green. however, the sapphire color that is associated with the month of september is blue.

blue gemstones are often associated with the throat and third eye chakra, making them helpful in communication or protection. the blue sapphire is excellent for both. it helps the user understand situations on a deeper level in order to assess the circumstances from a birds eye view. not only is it useful in earthly communication, it also helps with psychic communication. this gemstone helps us with lucid dreaming, which makes it easier to dive into our subconscious and connect with our ancestors. because of all the information and experiences the blue sapphire brings to us, it is also referred to as the stone of wisdom.

the blue sapphire is instrumental in our spiritual evolution. it balances our reasoning and enhances our clarity. our psychic abilities are also enhanced with the use of the sapphire. with the help of this gemstone, the user sees everything around them clearer and is then able to make enlightened decisions. speaking of enlightenment, the blue sapphire has the ability to bring everything to light. there is no pretending when wearing a sapphire. the user will be inclined to tell the truth, as will the people in their presence.

being a stone from the family of corundums, the sapphire’s sensitivity to acid is higher than most gemstones so using the earth element is not the ideal way to cleans and recharge it. . i would recommend running it through water for cleansing and exposing it to either incense smoke or the sun to recharge it. speaking intentions over the gemstone works just as well.

the blue sapphire is a highly proficient gemstone. and, much like september babies, you can always count on this gemstone to bring you back to your center when you’re feeling off. the blue sapphire is sure to show you sides of you you’ve never experienced before so that it can help you make peace with them. all in all, even though it doesn’t possess the same extensive array of qualities as all the other gemstones we’ve discussed before, the blue sapphire owns the areas that it covers. and what better way to describe september babies than “experts at what they put their mind to”?

i am aware not everyone can have access to sapphire, so here are a few gemstones you can look up that have similar qualities and are easier to access: amazonite, labradorite and sodalite. happy digging!

and a happy birthday to the gems who are born in september!
