For thousands of years, different cultures and traditions from around the world have looked to the night sky for guidance.
Astrology is the ancient study of planets and constellations, how they constantly move in relation to the earth and how this cosmic dance affects us on a personal level. From full moon craziness to star crossed lovers and technology thwarting retrogrades – the far reaching power of the planets impacts our everyday/modern lives.
At LusterBlue we honor two important dimensions of your astrological alignment – your sun and moon sign. You can harness the power of your astrological blueprint by wearing gemstones that are energetically connected to the constellations which shape your life.
SUN SIGNS – Most people know their star (or sun) sign. We look up our sign for horoscopes, check out compatibility with a new partner and know our strengths from our zodiac traits. Based on the position of the sun at birth, star signs represent our masculine energy (which both males and females embody). It is your outward personality traits and conscious actions. But this only tells half the story.
Aligned with Mars, wear Garnet to enhance your ambition and courage.
Aligned with Venus, wear Pink Opal to expand your generous and loving heart.
Aligned with Mercury, wear Blue Lace Agate to help you communicate your wisdom.
Aligned with the Moon, wear Moonstone to connect with your optimism and joy.

MOON SIGNS – The lesser talked about moon sign is equally important to gaining cosmic insights. Like star signs, moon signs also fall into one of the 12 zodiacs. The moon represents your feminine side, your subconscious, the person you are when no one is watching. It rules your emotions, your needs, your insecurities and most importantly your instincts.

Your element: Fire
Your ruling planets: Mars
Symbol: The Ram
Your stone: Diamond
Life Pursuit: The thrill of the moment
Aries secret desire: To lead the way for others
Aries are fire signs and those born under this element are regarded in astrology as adventurous, active and outgoing. Aries is a uniquely naïve sign. Although they are independent, outgoing and assertive they are also surprisingly trusting, often innocently walking into the lion’s den at times. Their faith in life and the future remains untouched by hardship. Their gift is that they are always children at heart and the world is always a magical place for them.
Your element: Earth
Your ruling planets: Venus
Symbol: The Bull
Your stone: Emerald
Life pursuit: Emotional and financial security
Vibration: Determined energy
Taurus secret Desire: To have a secure, happy and wealthy life/marriage
Taurus is known for their attachment and reliability. Kind, dependable and caring, they will always give a helping hand, always prepared to push others forward when they get stuck. They understand ways of the material world which makes them good financial advisors and bank employees. Determined and strong, always prepared to endure in the long run, they will do anything to please their loved one.
A bit on the introvert side, a Taurus will tend to build intimate relationships that will last for a long time. They are trustworthy and loyal, dedicated to those they feel close to and have to examine other people slowly and thoroughly to make a real connection. Dependable and gentle, this is a friend you want by your side, to share all positive experiences with and endure through negative ones. Fearing conflict and aggression, these individuals will close up for loud and aggressive characters. Slow and stubborn, they can be annoying for some of the Air and Fire signs that need more speed and excitement in their lives. A Taurus is someone to have by your side in the long run, not to adventurously share a day or two with.

Gemini’s secret desire: To be ahead of the crowd
people born with the Sun in Gemini are spirited, fast, adjustable and smart. Their wit and their sense of humor will help them overcome any difficulty life brings their way, while the gift of communication is their biggest asset. Fun and always open for new friends, experiences and adventures, Gemini have a way of imposing their charisma on everyone around them making things light and carefree.
Each Gemini values their social circle greatly and needs to have different friends for different shared activities and conversations in their life. They will easily win your heart with their childish approach to all things in life, and their incredible mind able to create a game out of anything. In time, some of those more serious will consider this a flaw, presuming that they are not serious enough to last in any relationship they find themselves in.

Cancer’s secret desire: To feel safe (emotionally, spiritually, romantically and financially)
The greatest strength of every Cancer is their compassion, followed by their ability to look after people they care about. Born with extremely high capability for empathy, they can have trouble holding on to their boundaries. However, if they don’t fear getting hurt and bravely accept emotional challenges, they become adaptable, trustworthy individuals, who truly enjoy their motherly approach to those in need. In general, Cancer representatives easily get attached to people, led by pure emotion, and tend to be loyal, gentle and trustworthy to those they care about. They are helpful and strong when needed, but it sometimes gets easy to forget their sensitive side that needs tenderness and gratitude in return. Reactive and with an emphasized inner sense of moral, they will take things too deep, and could have real trouble around fiery signs that often don’t hold back and say the first thing that comes to their minds. When a Cancer gets romantically involved, they aren’t afraid of showing their emotions. What troubles them is the fear of getting hurt, for these are individuals that often perceive this world as a rough place they cannot handle. They are afraid of all the wrong words they could hear some day, and even though this can be far from reality, it keeps them careful and on a distance until they start feeling safe. Dedicated and loyal, their goals transcend typical romantic relationships, and even though some of Cancer representatives can be prone to casual flings, this is not in any way typical for this sign. In search for someone to share their life with, these people will search and search until they find someone to stick to. Once they do, they can become clingy and too attached, so it is important for them to keep some of their distance with a strong sense of where the other person currently is.

Leo’s secret desire: To be a star
Leo is confident and full of vigor and energy. This can make them successful in everything they set out to do. These qualities can be contagious to those around them, and this results in a lot of creative energy and possibilities opening up in front of all those who enjoy their presence. Determined and loyal, Leos will make good friends, and their warmth and childish nature will be a real joy to be around most of the time. They know what respect means and won’t ever willingly jeopardize someone’s personal progress, no matter how hard the road gets. As a fiery representative of fixed quality, Leo is stable and reliable in most cases when it comes to interpersonal relationships. They can be counted on for practical issues, and they will always give a helping hand if you need it, in their own way. No matter what level they have attained, all Leo’s are trendsetters, leaders and adventurers. They are idealistic, honest and direct, and will work long and hard to achieve their goals. Their weakness is their pride. This is one sign where the saying “flattery will get you everything” applies, they thrive on admiration from others, but be warned criticism will slam the relationship door right in your face.
Your element: Earth
Your ruling planets: Mercury
Symbol: The Virgin
Your stone: Sapphire
Life pursuit: To do the right thing
Vibration: Compassionate and caring
Virgo’s secret desire: To love and be loved in return
Virgo is considered the most intelligent sign in the zodiac, as the place where Mercury is exalted. They are in fact truly practical and smart when it comes to everyday issues. Analytical and deep, their greatest strength is their mind at they should use it to resolve matters of life that obviously present to them for a reason. Clean and thorough, a Virgo will make everything that was broken, tainted or spoiled, clean, fixed and working again. This is why they are often found as healers, for some Virgos have a talent to fix broken hearts, souls, egos or bodies. If there is one thing a Virgo can’t accept in a romantic relationship, it is dishonesty. With Pisces in their seventh house, without idealistic views and trust everything else makes no sense at all. The element of Earth they belong to makes them somewhat stable, and when they are aware of all the rational and emotional benefits of the relationship they are in, they will remain faithful and full of support for their partner.

Life pursuit: To be consistent
Libra’s secret desire: To live and easy, uncomplicated life
The biggest qualities of Libra are their tact, fineness and their ability to take responsibility. This is a sign that leads us to our final verdict, and when in a good place, satisfied and confident, a Libra can be just and incredibly balanced. The thing they strive for is quality in relationships with others and they will put a lot of their energy into ways to improve lives of those around them. In general, Libra will rarely settle for superficial relationships. Their tendency to be unreliable from time to time is rather a consequence of their laid back, Venus attitude, than of disrespect or flakiness. These individuals will tend to focus on the way things (and other people) look, and they can get vain and too obsessed with physical appearance from time to time. If you feel like your Libra is measuring your place in their surroundings, maybe you have to set thicker boundaries and choose to act apart from their influence.
Your element: Water
Your ruling planets: Pluto
Symbol: The Scorpion
Your stone: Topaz
Life pursuit: To survive against all opposition
Scorpio’s secret desire: To triumph
Although it can sometimes be hard even for Scorpios to accept this fact, their greatest strength is their sensitivity. While many Scorpios hide from their own emotions, not knowing what to do with their intensity and depth, when they find a way to regenerate and forgive those that hurt them, they become amazing healers, psychologists, partners and friends. In romantic relationships, this can cross some boundaries of their loved one, and they should be careful when building relationships with free-spirited individuals that might feel tied by their approach. They have to steer clear of symbiotic bonds and give enough room for their partner to build their own world in every area of life, have enough time alone, and breathe. If a Scorpio jumps into their obsessive mood, they fail to see that this pushes their loved one away, creating too much pressure and taking away the magic out of love they fight for with such intensity. In the end, this can lead to hurt and suffering, but the only thing causing it turns out to be their desire. If you are in for a ride with a Scorpio, you have to understand everything they are made of. Their complicated personalities need excitement, incredible experiences, conversations and discoveries, while at the same time being too sensitive to metabolize numerous experiences they get from the world. Unaware of their own sensitivity and in denial about their deepest emotions, they can get destructive and unsatisfied, with a strong need to feel loved and nurtured that remains unfulfilled until they learn to love themselves.

Sagittarians’ secret desire: To make a different in the world
Sagittarius is an adventurer, both physically and mentally. People born in this Sun sign have a broad mind and they are able to change perspective with ease, until they find the right version of words spoken, events or reasons for anything they want to examine. Highly adjustable and with a deep understanding for different people, nations, countries, governments and in general – ways of life, they blend in perfectly with the natives, wherever they are. They need enough space, don’t want to be contained in their home, by their partner or in any other way. Movement will fill up their batteries, energize them and make them confident and strong. Independent, optimistic and sincere, this is a friend you want in your life, especially if you need someone to help you find hope or a purpose to anything that troubles you. A Sagittarius will be someone you want in your life at any given moment in case their fiery nature lets them rest and they build up patience and compassion for everyone around them.

Capricorn’s secret desire: To be admired by their family and the world at large
The greatest strengths of a Capricorn are his ambition, discipline and patience. With their ability to plan ahead and think of all necessary steps in their chase for a certain goal, they are often successful in their career path. Reliable and dedicated, these individuals often have trouble opening up to other people, but become trustworthy and stable in a relationship once they decide to be a part of it. With their endurance and patience, there is hardly anything that seems impossible. If you tried to form a relationship with a Capricorn, you learned how difficult this can be. These masters of practical facts and useful things often have too much pain in their lives to open up with ease. This makes them closed, distant and impossible to reach. However emotional in their inner world, they will rarely show it, and to form a lasting bond with someone, they need a lot of time to realize that they won’t be betrayed. Even though they are perfectly capable of joyful, spontaneous and fast relationships in their youth, with age they get more cautious and tend to close up in their own little worlds, without any intent to let anyone in. To understand a Capricorn you really have to scratch deep beneath the surface. Once you’re there, you will have to dig some more. Their core is warm, sensitive and even mellower than many other signs can imagine, but their caution is greater than their openness for love, and this makes them distant from the rest of the world.
Your element: Air
Your ruling planets: Uranus
Symbol: The water bearer
Your stone: Amethyst
Life pursuit: To understand life’s mysteries
Vibration: High frequency
Aquarian’s secret desire: To be unique an original
The sign of Aquarius is intelligent, energetic and full of brilliant ideas, while humane and honestly turned to the wellbeing of the human race. They will shake the world of everyone around them inspire them to make changes they need, without fear to show their individuality. Eccentric and a bit strange, an Aquarius is someone whose company will never be boring, rich with interesting anecdotes, exciting experiences, and strange events that need to be shared through incredible communication. When it comes to relationships, the sign of Aquarius can bring a lot of stress and solitude, and people born under this sign tend to think too much while feeling too little. They need constant excitement and change or their life falls into a boring routine they cannot handle. This makes it impossible for them to hold on to a certain “form” of any relationship that makes life easier for many other signs of the zodiac. The best way to socialize and go out with, or love an Aquarius, is to let go of your need for control and dedication, and hope that this specific individual will find reason to be present, dedicated and there for you for as long as it takes. To understand an Aquarius, you need to understand the burden of the world resting on their shoulders. Things they think about aren’t in any way small, and this can take away a lot of their energy and turn their focus away from things other people might find important.
Your element: Water
Your ruling planets: Neptune
Symbol: The fish
Your stone: Bloodstone
Life pursuit: To avoid feeling alone and instead feel connected to others and the world at large
Vibration: Erratic Energy levels
Pisces secret desire: To live their dreams and turn fantasies into realities
Mysterious an alluring individuals, most Pisces are extremely talented, but even though they are gifted in many ways, they still manage to spend most of their lives battling “confusing” conditions. Pisces is the sign symbolized by the image of two fish. Their symbol depicts one fish heading upward, the other pulling downward. This mirrors how Pisceans are frequently torn between two pathways in life, or actually do live two very different existences at the same time. Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac, and the creative drives of those born under this star sign are inextricably bound up with a deep empathy for the human condition and not just a pursuit of their own individual desires. The deep behavioural patterns that characterize their life expression manifest through a profound compassion and understanding of others and an urge to help those in need. ‘Healing’ is a way of life for many Pisceans and many enter the field of medicine, nursing, social work or assisting the handicapped.
A Pisces lover is gentle, kind, sensitive and emotional. Even though many of these individuals will have numerous relationships that don’t last very long, they are in constant search for true love and won’t settle for anything less than what they know exists out there.
