(23 Oc­to­ber – 21 Novem­ber) It’s al­ways hard to con­tain won­der­ful news to our­selves. How­ever, be sen­si­tive when shar­ing good news to other peo­ple. Not ev­ery­one is will­ing to hear your tri­umphs, es­pe­cially if they are hav­ing a re­ally bad day. South sea pearls will build your charisma.


(22 Novem­ber – 21 De­cem­ber) Real gains can be had when you take risks and test your lim­its. Hold your head up when things aren’t go­ing your way. An ex­tra ounce of per­sis­tence might help you push your luck. Pass on the grat­i­tude when things turn in your favour. Bolden your spirit with ruby.


(22 De­cem­ber – 19 Jan­uary) A lit­tle in­dul­gence will make you feel good, keep you mo­ti­vated, and in­crease your drive to do bet­ter. It’s also a way of show­ing you know how to have fun! So why not have time for a fancy din­ner, book a spa ap­point­ment, or buy that dress you’ve been eye­ing for the long­est time? So­lid­ify your lux­u­ri­ous in­dul­gence with gold.


(20 Jan­uary – 18 Fe­bru­ary) A ro­man­tic re­la­tion­ship might be a good dis­trac­tion if you find your ca­reer a bit drain­ing. While find­ing love is the most won­der­ful feel­ing, avoid­ing of­fice ro­mance at all costs is a good idea — un­less you are well-equipped to face all the drama and gos­sips as­so­ci­ated with it. Rose quartz pro­motes ro­mance.


(19 Fe­bru­ary – 20 March) Com­pe­ti­tion in the work­place can be a dou­ble-edged sword. You can use it to in­crease your pro­duc­tiv­ity or as a fence to iso­late your­self. No mat­ter how you see it, the end re­sult will weigh the heav­i­est. Work hard, but make sure the ex­tra hours you will put in will keep (23 Septem­ber – 22 Oc­to­ber) you at the top of your game. Boost your pro­duc­tiv­ity and suc­cess with car­nelian.


(21 March – 19 April) You han­dle chal­lenges well, and the last quar­ter of the year will set the stage for you to show­case your skills. As­so­ciate your­self with the right peo­ple, as your re­la­tion­ships with them will im­pact your per­for­mance. Talk less, do more. Jade will re­in­force your lead­er­ship qual­i­ties and de­ci­sive­ness.


(20 April – 20 May) Don’t turn a blind eye to things that make your co-work­ers un­com­fort­able. If there’s a con­cern, raise it. If there are mis­un­der­stand­ings, talk about them. Be fair. What comes around goes around. You def­i­nitely wouldn’t want to be in the bad side of karma. Wear cit­rines for men­tal clar­ity.


(21 May – 20 June) On one hand you think shift­ing to a bet­ter-pay­ing ca­reer is a good idea. On the other, you’d like to con­tinue en­joy­ing the sta­bil­ity your cur­rent job. It’s nor­mal to think the grass is greener on the other side. So list down your pri­or­i­ties, de­cide your move based on this, and move for­ward. Let amber as­sist you with your de­ci­sion-mak­ing.


(21 June – 22 July) Lately, you’ve no­ticed you are get­ting more than your fair share of ob­sta­cles com­pared to your peers. Be flat­tered as the uni­verse knows you are strong enough to han­dle all th­ese. Con­tinue with your op­ti­mism and soon you will have your time to bask in the glory of your strength. Spinel will give you that ra­di­ant war­rior glow.


(23 July – 22 Au­gust) Say­ing no can be lib­er­at­ing, es­pe­cially when you are con­sis­tently given tasks that fall far be­low your field of spe­cial­i­sa­tion. Tackle the prob­lem if it gets out of hand. Bal­anc­ing as­sertive­ness and diplo­macy is a skill that can over­come any mis­un­der­stand­ings. Let your birth­stone, peri­dot, be your guide.


(23 Au­gust – 22 Septem­ber) Long hours at work and un­healthy eat­ing habits are un­beat­able recipes for a vul­ner­a­ble health. The oc­ca­sional drink­ing and par­ty­ing can also take a toll on your health. Eat more healthily to re­store your glow. Some yoga time can help, too! Gar­net pro­motes re­birth and re­newal.

The ‘ber’ months are here, and what bet­ter way to spring into ac­tion than start­ing early with your Christ­mas shop­ping? Plan­ning ahead is never a bad idea. While you’re busy buy­ing gifts for your loved ones, think also about your home and of­fice. Some daz­zling dé­cor will add sparkle to the up­com­ing sea­son. Go fes­tive with tour­ma­lines.
