The customary birthstone for the month of October, tourmaline is most beneficial for those native to the astrological signs Aries, Leo, Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius and Cancer.
Pluto is the main ruler of the gemstone pink tourmaline. But because it is piezoelectric and piroelectric in nature, Uranus also comes into play as its secondary ruler. As Uranus controls electricity and electromagnetic activity on all four levels of our existence, pink tourmaline transforms and transmutes energy under Pluto’s domain. Both planets play a part in this gemstone’s astrological properties.
Pink tourmaline is known to emit a beautiful energy that resounds within the heart chakra and the higher heart chakra, known as the thymus chakra. As in most heart-based stones, the vibration of this crystal is said to be associated with the arrival of love, joy and happiness. Similarly, it is said to be very effective with grief, divorce, losing a job, natural disaster and more. It can relieve individuals of suppressing their emotions, allowing them to be more sensitive to themselves and to others. Anything to do with our feelings and passions, whether it is love, sympathy, compassion, or other similar emotion, pink tourmaline is one gemstone that can help.
There are many that can directly benefit from this gemstone, including natural-born caretakers who they think they have to use up all of their own energy to help others. Those who wear the stone are able to learn healthy boundaries of giving and taking, as opposed to hindering themselves – body and soul – for a person who needs help.
