According to legend, Aries flew over the sea in search of happiness. Could the aspirations of this Zodiac sign be anything less than grand? They crave major accomplishments! "What is within the compass of man's wit, I promise," said Shakespeare. But what if ambitious Aries wants to do more than what's within the power of an ordinary person? What if they also need to fly across the sea, build a castle, or conquer an unreachable prince (or princess)? They can't do it without helpers. Such helpers for Aries are talismans: precious and semi-precious stones.
The main talisman stones for Aries: diamond, ruby, sapphire, emerald, amethyst, agate, quartz crystal, garnet, carnelian, jasper, amber, jade, rhodonite, lapis lazuli.
Ambitious Aries always dreams big, only they can't always materialize what they envision. However, they are also not inclined to retreat. The contradiction in this case is simply resolved: Aries' plans are simplified. For example, if Aries decided to write a book but something went awry, they will instead create a brochure.
A diamond is needed for Aries to remain firm in their intentions. Supported by the strength of the diamond, they will not alter their grand plans and will execute what they conceived.
Ruby is considered the "blood of the world". This stone is for warriors, for whom possessing a ruby signifies both an abundance of blood and readiness to shed it. Aries, by nature, is a fighter; of all the planets in the sky, they are the first to notice Mars. Of course, not every Aries will go to war, but no Aries will refuse to engage in a debate. In any matter, a talisman with a ruby will give Aries determination and steadfastness, helping them to achieve victory.
Many also compare a ruby to a burning heart driven by love. The passionate Aries is ready to fall in love every minute. For a love-struck Aries, ruby will help them attain reciprocity. Furthermore, this remarkable stone has a universal effect on the human body: for those with hypotension, ruby helps raise the pressure to a comfortable level, while for those with hypertension (which often includes energetic Aries), it helps keep the pressure normal.
Sapphire is a stone of mystics. It often adorns regalia of power, symbolizing not only the right of strength, but also the greatness of the spirit. Speaking of the influence of sapphire on Aries, one can metaphorically say that under the beneficial influence of this talisman stone, they transform from a hooligan into a knight. Bold by nature, Aries, relying on the help of sapphire, can reach such heights of thought that many don't even dare to dream of!
The tender Venus and the militant Mars - in mythology, these two deities, symbolizing the masculine and feminine principles, are closely connected. Among the talisman stones patronized by the planet Venus, there is the emerald. Mars also lays claim to this stone. How was it possible to combine opposites? The answer is simple: Venus and Mars are united by one feeling - Love. Aries, who has chosen emerald as their talisman, will be lucky in love. This fiery, strong emotion will be infused with tenderness and delicacy by the stone, which is sometimes lacking in impetuous Aries.
A crusader, setting off on a campaign, would wear a garnet ring, knowing that garnet is a protector; it protects against injuries. On the one hand, such a talisman would be very suitable for the restless Aries. However, garnet has another side: this stone generates passionate material desires. Aries, already prone to intense passions, might not need such a catalyst for desires. The choice is theirs to make.
Amethyst brings peace, balancing hot heads. Aries sometimes can't stop in time, so they could use such a "brake". However, it should be kept in mind that the action of an amethyst talisman is individual for everyone. If Aries feels that with the arrival of the amethyst they have begun to make more measured actions and peace has come to their family, it makes sense to trust this stone.
Ancient Greeks claimed that rock crystal is nothing but petrified ice. For ages, the transparency of this stone has symbolized the purity of thoughts. Rock crystal has a beneficial effect on Aries, enhancing their noble impulses and smoothing out their adventurism. A talisman with rock crystal will show Aries the right direction in life, save them from mistakes, and protect them from dishonest people.
Carnelian softens anger and patronizes lovers. Such a feature of the talisman is very suitable for the impulsive Aries, who can be militant even in love! Many troubles and mistakes can be avoided by the quick-tempered Aries if they are protected by carnelian.
Agate is a stone of Saturn. However, when choosing a stone, it should be taken into account that blue agate stands apart - it is subject to the Moon. Great Italian masters of the Renaissance era considered agate to be their talisman.
If Aries wants to succeed in any matter or learn the secrets of mastery, they couldn't find a better assistant than agate. The exception is blue agate: The Moon is capable of mystifying anyone, and if Aries gets caught in its web, it will try to mislead them as much as possible. That is why blue agate is an unsuitable talisman for them.
Jasper is interlinked with wealth through fertility. In ancient times, this stone served as a protector against drought, promising a bountiful harvest, thus becoming a symbol of wealth. Jasper's property of bringing wealth is also connected with health: this stone gives its owner strength, wards off fatigue. This is precisely what an energetic Aries needs, for he is capable of working for days on end, until he drops from exhaustion. A talisman with Jasper will help him regain strength when they are at their limit, and also achieve prosperity.
Amber is firmly associated with the life-giving energy of the Sun. It would seem that the energetic Aries has plenty of vitality, but he generously squanders it hither and thither, and he regularly needs an energy "battery" for "recharging". Amber is an excellent talisman, helping Aries replenish his waning strength.
Moreover, it should not be forgotten: golden amber remembers the era of dinosaurs and the Earth's youth, it awakens ancestral memory. This property of the stone also suits Aries, who often acts on instincts. The modern inhabitant submits to reason and forgets that sometimes instincts should be trusted. They helped the Aries' ancestor survive, and they will help him too.
High in the sky, in the constellation of Aries, shine the orange star Hamal, and the white stars Sheratan and Mesarthim. Isn't it their light that reflects in ruby and diamond, sapphire and garnet? Have they not stretched invisible strings between the stars and precious stones? The person born under the sign of Aries has to play the melody of his destiny on this stellar harp.
The best stories about jade's remarkable properties come from China. This stone is used to carve various figurines, each of which has its own purpose. If a person is gifted a jade blooming peach, the recipient is expected to have longevity. If the giver presents a jade mandarin, the gift's recipient is "programmed" for mutual love. Jade brings prosperity, wealth, good fortune. All of this will not be superfluous for Aries.
Rhodonite will only benefit Aries if he trusts it. This stone helps to generate positive thoughts and get rid of negativity. With the support of this powerful talisman, one's outlook on the world changes. Aries, who dislikes being submissive, with the help of rhodonite can eliminate tension from family relationships, get along with superiors. With such a set-up, a quick career boost is possible!
Lapis Lazuli is associated with the planet Uranus. Aries understands the language of invention and eccentricity. The assistance of Lapis Lazuli, a patron of inventors, will be even more apparent. The significance of the invention, the contribution to progress, depends directly on the efforts of Aries himself. But the help of people, upon whom the promotion of the invention depends, will be ensured by the Lapis Lazuli talisman. Besides, with the help of Lapis Lazuli, it will be beneficial for Aries to cool his hot temper.

Stones that are Contraindicated for Aries
The inquisitive Aries never sits still, finding everything interesting. Like a child, he is drawn to everything new, not differentiating between a candy or a wasp. Undoubtedly, a healthy dose of adventurism is useful where risk is required, yet the curious Aries is ready to risk for any reason. It's not surprising that, as a passionate individual, Aries sometimes becomes the prey of manipulators. There are stones that can act as such "manipulators" for Aries and he should avoid them if possible. These include aventurine, pearl, and moonstone.
- Pearl — may cause restlessness, oversensitivity, and doubts in Aries.
- Moonstone — can provoke illusions, confusion of consciousness, self-deception, and inadequate assessment of the situation.
- Aventurine — intensifies Aries' impulsiveness, which can lead to unpleasant consequences.
Pearl serves as an indicator of health and well-being; it is believed that if it loses its shine, something in the person's fate is amiss. But Aries doesn't need any doubts: despite his courage, he tends to overthink. A pearl may simply age, but Aries might draw frightening conclusions from this. That's why the capricious pearl will never be a good talisman for Aries.
Moonstone is associated with the ability for clairvoyance, but Aries is too trusting and curious. Under the influence of moonstone, he might start living an illusory future instead of the present. The moon will try to ensnare him in a web of insinuations and hints, so the straightforward Aries runs the risk of confusing left from right, up from down in his actions. The moon, acting through the moonstone, may completely disorient him.
Aries is a passionate character, eager to experience everything. This trait of his could be amplified by aventurine. Aventurine favors card players and other risky ventures, but Aries should not test this. Risk is noble, only if it's based on accurate calculation. Aventurine is a stone with which one can take a risk in a business operation, but only if success is calculated to a millimeter. It's better for the naturally impulsive Aries to approach such a talisman with caution — there's no need to intensify this inclination, it's already strong enough.
Silver and Gold Jewelry for Aries
The moon is a ship sailing in the dark, its anchor is hope, its sails are determination. By attracting the moon's attention with silver jewelry, Aries is essentially aiming to be on steady deck: he is ready for adventures, and let fortune be the pennant on his ship. A silver bracelet and chain may only vaguely remind one of an anchor chain, but sometimes a symbol is enough to awaken in the soul the forces it signifies.
Silver, in combination with precious and semi-precious stones, will enhance for Aries their properties associated with intuition, insight, inspiration, and imagination.
Gold is the Sun's ambassador. Its credentials are energy, which is the essence of Aries, and clarity, which is so needed by this curious and somewhat naive Zodiac sign to choose the right direction for applying their formidable power. With its help, Aries becomes a guided meteor!
In this case, a gold chain and bracelet serve as a battery, attracting solar energy. Combined with precious and semi-precious stones, gold will enhance for Aries their main positive properties related to creation.
If you need a companion for a journey, call on Aries: he will lead it. If you are bored, call on Aries: he doesn't get bored himself and doesn't let others feel bored. Were you offended? Call on Aries: he will defend you. Have you planned a new endeavor but don't know how to go about it? Tell Aries about it: he will take the initiative. His energy is enough for everything!
