They are also analytical and independent thinkers, who are often ahead of the times and possess a fascination with the future.

They enjoy exploring new ideas and theories, often taking the lead in discussions. Aquarius is also known for its altruism and generosity, always looking for ways to help those around them. In relationships, they can be loyal and devoted partners who will stand by their loved ones in any situation.

Negative traits of Aquarius

The airy Aquarians have some common weaknesses that can be difficult to overcome. Aquarians tend to be overly analytical and critical, often over-thinking situations and making it hard to make decisions.

Additionally, they can be scattered and prone to getting distracted easily, often starting projects without finishing them.

While these are all important traits to be aware of, it's also important to recognize that Aquarians are compassionate, loyal individuals who make great friends and colleagues.

Angelite is a stone for the New Age. Many Aquarius natives are involved in initiatives to heal the planet and reconnect the human race with Mother Nature.

Angelite represents peace and brotherhood and can be used to bring harmonious vibrations into group situations, something that appeals to "The Water Bearer".

Angelite resonates with the Throat chakra and will help you to speak your truth whatever that may be. This healing stone facilitates verbal communication and clears the Throat of blocked energy.

When the Throat chakra is closed, we can feel as if we are not being heard, or that our opinions are not valued. Angelite worn as a necklace or choker helps to keep the Throat chakra clear and removes any fears you may have about speaking out.

Spiritually, Angelite is an Aquarius stone of infinite compassion. It enhances the natural humanitarian instincts of most Aquarians and transmutes pain and discordance into wholeness and order.

Which stones Aquarius should not wear?


Aquarians should avoid wearing fluorite, as it can be too calming for the fiercely independent sign. Fluorite is believed to promote inner peace and harmony, but these qualities can stifle Aquarius' need for freedom and exploration. Additionally, fluorite's energy may interfere with an Aquarian's natural rebellious streak. However, if the Water Bearer wants these qualities in their life, we would say why not.


Another stone to avoid is aquamarine, as it may have the opposite effect of Aquarius natural energy flow––making them too tranquil and complacent. As Aquarians are naturally creative and eccentric individuals, aquamarine's calming influence can put a damper on their natural enthusiasm and intensity. However, if you need to tone it down, and mellow out, we would also say by all means.

How do you cleanse the Aquarius birthstones?

Cleaning and energizing Aquarius birthstones

Cleansing Garnet and Amethyst is easy and can be done at home with simple ingredients like sea salt or a mixture of herbs.

  • To cleanse Garnet, place it in a bowl of lukewarm, distilled water with a few drops of sage oil to help remove negative energy. Leave the gemstone in the bowl for 20-30 minutes before rinsing it with plain water.
  • To cleanse Amethyst, mix three tablespoons of sea salt with two cups of spring water and add the crystal to the mixture. Soak for 15-20 minutes then rinse with lukewarm water. Once finished, dry your gems off with a soft cloth before storing them away safely.
