Birthstones and Zodiac signs

I am always struggling for a topic to write about that people will enjoy reading.  Tonight I was thinking about my son, who by the way will be 32 today!! Wow where did the time go.

But back to my topic... I was trying to figure out what to get him when his wife said he wants a new gold chain and pendant... so off I went looking for pendants.... I decided to get him his Zodiac sign and that brought me to the idea of doing posts on birthstones and Zodiac sings.

Today I will feature Gemini - May 22 to June 21st - typically known as the Twins!

The third sector of the zodiac, Gemini is all about intelligence and communication. You're born under this sign and have a talent for and love of using your minds and expressing yourself fully.

As a Gemini, you are a bower bird, mentally, and take an interest in all sorts of different things. Anything that gets your mind ticking over will grab you. You constantly try to challenge your mental abilities and will make extra efforts to understand anything you put your mind to.

 Geminis seem to grow younger rather than older. Physically, you will maintain a youthful glow, and you will never lose your fun-loving liveliness. You’re really not into that 'growing old gracefully' thing.

Gemini Strength Keywords: - Energetic         
- Clever
- Imaginative
- Witty
- Adaptable

Gemini Weakness Keywords:

- Superficial
- Impulsive
- Restless
- Devious
- Indecisive

 Now I will feature a few Gemini products from Etsy:

 Handcrafted by Iloverocks
Handcrafted by Kikiburrabeads.

Handcrafted by Nellyvansee

Emerald is the stone for May...

Now for a few birthstone items...

 Beautiful emerald ring by TrinketsNwhatnots!
 Gorgeous Emerald necklace by Peelirohini!

 Stunning emerald heart pendant by Sunnycrystals!

Stay tuned for more features on birthstones and Zodiac  signs.

A very Happy Birthday to your son when the time comes. :) That is wonderful what you have decided to get him and I am sure he will treasure your gift. We are in new moon in Gemini now in the cycle, and these qualities that you share with us are very important on our own journey and we can all learn from in a way to bring us back to who we truly are. Thank you for sharing a very insightful and personal post with us.
