Posted: Mon, Jun 29th 2015, 04:12 | Updated: Tue, Oct 10th 2017, 04:43

Your date of birth says a lot about you. According to astrology, your date of birth is more than just a date. It is a revelation to your future, a sure-shot formula to know the kind of person you are, your compatibility with others and so on. In astrology, this is called zodiac signs. ‘Zodiac’ means a belt-shaped region in the heavens on either side to the ecliptic; divided into 12 constellations or signs for astrological purposes. The zodiacs do not correspond exactly with the twelve constellations and hence are named differently.

Just like we have birthstones that correspond to the 12 months of the years, there are different gemstones for the 12 zodiac signs. It is believed that every zodiac sign is ruled by one of the planets and it is these planets that determine gemstones for each of the 12 signs.
