Our Spiritual Purpose
Human beings have each been created for a purpose. Some would even call it a Divine purpose. To paint humanity with such broad strokes could render the idea of being unique moot, as if to say if everyone is special then no one is special.
But we are special, each and every one of us.
It may not always be easy to spot where your destiny lies or even what it stems from. In this infinitely vast universe we live in, nothing is a coincidence or an accident, not even the day you were born.
The September Zodiac
Perhaps not everyone born on your birthday shares the same destiny, but everyone born in your birth month shares the same type of destiny.
It is pretty straightforward to see that the month of September is a host of two Zodiac signs: Virgo and Libra. Libra has the larger share of this month, up to September 22. If you are born as a Virgo or Libra individual, or you have relatives or close friends in one of these signs, read on to see why Sapphire might be your best personal stone.
Sapphire: an eye-catching if not breathtaking blue stone set on this earth to remind us of who we are. Especially if you are born in September. Sapphire is considered to be one of the four precious stones in the world.
Historically the month of September belongs to Nobel Laureate physicists, heavyweight boxing champions, social workers, and dynasty creating patriarchs. People who have changed the world. But more than that, people who saw the potential of mankind and looked to the future. Men and women who endeavored to create the better world they believed could be achieved.
Sapphire and September
The Sapphire serves to remind those born in September that your birth month is no accident. You were made strong, given the ability to insulate and protect others. You were specially crafted to do precision work that others can’t. Light shines through you in such a way that you see where others can’t.
So why then associate September with the Sapphire? A stone that is the third hardest mineral on earth. A stone that with the slightest variation in its elemental composition can come out in vastly different colors. Let’s examine some of the properties of this gem.
Sapphire is a type of corundum. This means that the structure of this blue jewel is almost identical to that of Ruby. The difference originates in the small addition of foreign atoms that are built-in throughout the crystal and change the color of Sapphire when compared to that of Ruby. Scientists think that the blue color of sapphire can be traced back to iron and titanium impurities.
Sapphire’s special properties allows it to be used to see different light spectra, insulate delicate components, and be used in precision instruments. All these attributes make the dazzling Sapphire an appropriate representation of those born in September.
The Meaning of Sapphire
The meaning of Sapphire doesn’t only come from itself, as it’s just a stone. The meaning comes from what it represents. It represents a group of people with incredible destiny potential. People who may have the same fundamental compositional make up, but are vastly different because of the slightest trace of a different element. The thing that makes you, sets you miles apart from those similar to you.
Not without a reason, Sapphire is your spiritual stone.
The Sapphire’s wonderful striking blue color has captivated our attention for centuries. Throughout centuries people have revered it as a stone of destiny. This gem has been associated with constancy, sincerity, and truth.
In some cultures they have been thought of as gems that promote abundance and financial freedom. Stones that can improve mental clarity and bring better perception.
Today, more than ever, Sapphires are believed to be celestial gemstones that can help attract Divine mercy and grace. In that sense, Sapphires are symbols of our blissful dedication to God.
Sapphire can be used in crystal therapy and alternative healing. The list of its health benefits include treating speech and communication problems, thyroid related issues, eye infections, ear problems and relieving fevers and headaches.
Sapphire comes in many forms and shapes, from inexpensive tumbled stones to high quality jewelry. Sapphire wedding and engagement rings are rather popular, but their price can be very high.
Because natural blue Sapphires of good clarity and color are rare, this gemstone can be rather costly. Their color can range from sky blue all the way down to dark blue shades. Unfortunately, very often the color of Sapphire is artificially enhanced, so be careful if you are looking for genuine untreated gemstones.
Instead of conclusion
The sapphire means nothing if it isn’t used to its full potential. Let the sight of one sitting in a glass case remind you that you are not an ornament in a glass case. You are here to lead and pave the way to the future of mankind. The stone does not give you those abilities without your conscious cooperation. You were born with them. It simply shares the same traits you have so that whenever you see it something in you is reminded that there is more to you than a just birth date.
