Jewelry based on the Astrological Zodiac Signs
Based on your astrological sign is personal by definition, this jewelry is said by some people to bring good luck. I’ve found jewelry for each sign in the zodiac. Whether the sun sign of you or your loved one is Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius or Pisces.
Match Their Zodiac Sign For Birthday Jewelry
Back in the 1960s and 1970s a popular question was, “What’s your sign?”. Of course they were asking what sign of the zodiac you were born in. People are still fascinated with their horoscopes which is determined by the time of the year that you are born in and the “sign” that is associated with where the moon, stars and sun were aligned when you made your debut.
So, whether you want to give a birthday gift to someone or you want some jewelry that has your horoscope sign depicted there are some great choices out there. This type of jewelry makes for a unique gift and something that the birthday person is sure to enjoy and appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Let’s have a look at some of your options.
The most traditional type of jewelry is probably the pendant on a necklace. Most of the jewelry on this page is some type of pendant. Whether it includes birth stones or just the zodiac-symbol, it is easy to wear with anything.
Bracelets themed to your astrological sign come in various styles. Currently the gypsy style leather bracelet is quite fashionable for both men and women.
Body jewelry: zodiac earrings and belly buttons
Traditionally body jewelry has two purposes: a spiritual and social one as well as simply to decorate the body. Jewelry can say something about who you are and who you want to be. Jewelry that is attached to the body sends an even stronger message.
Next to ear rings, naval piercings are the most innocent and harmless type of body piercing. But they’re also sexy of course…
Earrings are a more traditional type of jewelry. I like the gypsy-style of the zodiac earrings shown here.
Because the whole basis of the horoscope is based on the astrological position of the constellations, sun, and moon the zodiac is actually a ecliptic coordinate system and gets pretty involved if we were to pay attention to just where the sun is in its path and where the stars, planets and constellations are in the travel throughout a year the actual “sign” changes each year by degrees. Unless you are really serious about the exact location for accurate readings you can just use a standard chart that gives a general break down of where your date of birth falls in the zodiac year.
Each month has two signs which generally change around the 20th of each month, give or take a day or two. Some charts will differ slightly on whether the change is on the 20th or 21st. Most use the Tropical Zodiac for this purpose. To confuse things there is also a Sidereal Zodiac that begins on the 15th or so and is a month later than what we are used to.

Aquarius starting on January 21

Pisces starting on February 20

Astrology is an ancient science in which the places of the various planets, the earth, the moon, the sun – in relation to the stars is given meaning. That is: it’s assumed that the time each of us was born or conceived influences our lives to a significant extent. Jewelry devoted to the zodiac celebrates that connection between man (or woman) and stars.
Most astrological jewelry pieces are devoted to a specific sign in the zodiac, but there are also pieces that are devoted to all of them at once. These call on the influence of all the stars for health, success and harmony.
Because the zodiac is actually a celestial map of the path of the sun during a year the beginning of that celestial calendar starts at the vernal equinox which usually occurs around the 20th or 21st of March. It varies each year but the standard for picking which sign you were born under starts with most charts on March 20th if you are using the Tropical signs. Here are some rather fun pieces of jewelry for birthdays in the first quarter of the celestial or astronomical calendar year.
Whether you want a ring, a pendant or a belly button ring, it’s all good.
