And all the while, they are looking around - is there anything else interesting and new? Aquarius is a Zodiac sign that strives to look beyond the horizon with the help of dreams.

Blok's entire cycle "Snow Mask" is such that a romantic person gets drunk from it stronger than from wine. And they will become dizzy from sad thoughts, because it is so sweet to be sad. But when to do the job?
Amethyst will help Aquarius to sober up both from wine and from dreams, dispel sad thoughts. This talisman is Aquarius's best friend, for amethyst, in its own way, is a foreman: it will clear the field for construction and give energy for creating something new. And what to build is up to Aquarius to decide - no matter what the project is, with the amethyst talisman, they will succeed.
Impulsive Aquarius will find it much easier to cope with emotions and situations when there is a sapphire ring on their finger. Sapphire is the stone of rulers: both secular and spiritual.
An Aquarius who has reached career heights with such a talisman will be a fair, restrained leader. If Aquarius is not interested in a career, then sapphire will resonate with their search for a high truth, to which representatives of this zodiac sign are so devoted.
On the one hand, garnet generates material desires, on the other - it awakens inspiration. It is Aquarius, who is characterized by versatility, who is capable of combining these contradictory properties of a wonderful stone. It is even useful for contemplative Aquarius to experience desires, after all, they need to somehow earn money for the family, which garnet will help to create, capable of igniting love in their fickle heart.
Stories about turquoise, serving as a talisman for Aquarius, are similar to the plot of a fairy tale, at the end of which the hero defeats evil and marries for great love, after which the spouses live long and happily in prosperity, increasing it from year to year. Not for nothing one of the names of the stone - "firuz" - translates as "victorious".
True, peace-loving Aquarius can only win in science or art - war does not interest him, and although he is ready to fall in love, it is difficult for him to declare it. It is in this that turquoise will help Aquarius, it is enough to give a beloved one a ring with the coveted stone, and reciprocity will be ensured.
The ultramarine obtained from lapis lazuli was only suitable for small surfaces, which did not prevent miniature painters from conveying the depth of the sky and rivers in their tiny landscapes.
Aquarius is quite satisfied with a small, but bright, like the work of miniaturists, happiness, delicately inscribed in all the smallest details. And a talisman with lapis lazuli will bring everything necessary for this into his life: prosperity, love and well-being.
Ease of communication and curiosity make Aquarius carefree. "Watch out for yourself, be careful," sings Viktor Tsoi in one of his songs. This applies both to safety precautions and etiquette rules: straightforward Aquarius can say the first thing that comes to his mind, or go for a walk in the mountains without proper preparation.
Obsidian will cure Aquarius of excessive overconfidence, with this stone he will begin to calculate his actions several moves ahead. Obsidian, returning caution to Aquarius, will make him a strategist. By the way, the talisman will protect not only from annoying accidents, but also from infidelity.
Restless Aquarians love to travel, and as you know, all wanderers fall under the protection of aquamarine.
But sometimes you don't even need to leave the house to expose yourself to danger: "many fears from childhood seem silly, but they continue to dominate us. Someone is afraid of the dark, someone of night butterflies. Aquamarine will dispel obsessive fears, with this stone Aquarius will be left by old anxieties, he will stop being afraid of both the past and the future.
Legend has it that the stone of Aquarius - hyacinth - can make a person invisible. Merchants and thieves were very much counting on this, mainly hoping to become unnoticeable to each other. It is unlikely that hyacinth can act like a fairy-tale invisibility cap, but it will divert the attention of others from the owner. This property of the talisman will give Aquarius the opportunity to stay aside from what is happening and calmly figure out any situation.
And if someone finds this property of the stone too exotic and useless, hyacinth has other abilities: the talisman will strengthen the health of Aquarius and sharpen his mind.
Rock crystal attracted knights and seers: a ball of this mineral at the hilt of a sword or on a standard promised victory, and prophets sought the future in visions caused by meditation on a crystal ball. Thus, rock crystal will give Aquarius developed intuition and courage, as well as the ability to understand the intentions of those around him.
The matte glow of a pearl promotes trust and relaxation. This feeling reveals the property of pearl to protect its owner from various misfortunes. Therefore, near the pearl, Aquarius is seized by a sense of security. Especially since the pearl, like a faithful watchman, stands guard over his health. If an illness is approaching, the pearl loses its luster.
Pearl is especially beneficial for Aquarians working in business - such a talisman will protect them from dishonest deals. And it will also protect from thieves. And, as in the tale of Aladdin, owning a pearl, Aquarius can consider that the watchman with a rattle announces: "Everything is calm in Baghdad".
Aquarius tends to make spontaneous decisions. Their fate often takes sharp turns. In such unexpected (and sometimes risky) journeys, it would be good to have a reliable assistant. A talisman with chrysoprase can become one.
The stone of inventors and pioneers, giving joy and energy, resonates with Aquarius. Chrysoprase can make Aquarius more prudent. It will not prevent them from following their heart and interest, but it will make them more cautious.
Since ancient times, zircon has been called "the stone of thieves, actors, and merchants". Quite a strange company! However, people of all these, so different, professions are united by their artistic nature, love for risk, and ability to live in the present.
Aquarius is familiar with this joy of "living here and now". And they can certainly take risks. A talisman with zircon will provide them with additional resources for such actions, and most importantly - it will help to get out with a profit from the most difficult situations.

Stones contraindicated for Aquarius:

They can build grand plans, but they are unlikely to bother with their implementation, because there is another dream on the way.
Aquarius is straightforward and often struggles to understand people. How could they harm anyone? Only themselves, by being too trusting. This is how romantics look, but for Aquarius's noble and beautiful qualities not to turn into weaknesses and vices, they should avoid some minerals.
- Ruby - the stone of active people - offers a pace that Aquarius, an air sign, can't keep up with, as they follow inspiration rather than coercion.
- Diamond, the hardest of all crystals, can strengthen the fickleness and inconstancy of Aquarius, but make them selfish.

For instance, it could symbolize the water in a stream, bringing changes, or a poplar tree with leaves shimmering like restless thoughts in the wind. It could represent a talent that will never be buried in the ground, or a seagull, freely soaring above the sea. It could symbolize a unique sunset when clouds acquire the luster of metal, or a lily of the valley, captivating with its fragrance.
Silver jewelry promises Aquarius new experiences, changes, and the possibility of exciting adventures.
If water is silver to Aquarius, then gold represents the vase from which it begins to flow; the griffin that unites sky and earth; the treasure yet to be found; the voice of a canary singing about distant islands; the tiger merging with the forest; the sweetest melon; the ginger providing vitality; the dandelion that delights the heart.
Gold jewelry awakens Aquarius's dreams and gives them creative energy.
