February Symbolism


February’s birthstone is the alluring amethystThe ancient Greeks believed this rich purple gem kept the wearer clear-headed and quick-witted, while in eastern cultures it is considered “Buddah’s Stone”. Centuries later Leonardo da Vinci claimed that amethyst helps to quicken intelligence and get rid of evil thoughts. It’s also associated with peace, stability, courage, and strength.

Astrological Signs 

Aquarius: January 21 – February 19    
Pisces: February 20 – March 20

People with birthdays in the first part February were born under the star sign Aquarius, while those born later in the month are under Pisces

Aquarians are often considered to be original and progressive thinkers with strong humanitarian instincts, while Pisces are often very compassionate and artistic.

Aquarius is actually the last air sign of the zodiac, despite the “aqua” in its name. Aquarius is represented by the water bearer, the mystical healer who bestows water, or life, upon the land. Accordingly, Aquarius is the most humanitarian astrological sign.

Pisces, a water sign, is the last constellation of the zodiac. It’s symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions, representing the constant division of Pisces’s attention between fantasy and reality.

February birth flowers are such lovely purple blossoms. The violet, which signifies loyalty and faithfulness, the iris, which symbolizes eloquence, faith, wisdom and hope, and the primrose, which represents youth and undying love.

Aquarians bear emotional, loyal and intuitive personality. The elegance of purple orchids perfectly represents their quality of commitment, and genuine nature.

Pisces are quite gentle in nature and easily get along with people, valuing every relationship in life. White water lilies are the birth flower for Pisces depicting their deep perseverance, patient and understanding nature.

Birthstone Wish Ball

This birthstone wishing ball allows you to capture a wish or meditation every week for the coming year. Each shimmering ball of hand-blown glass comes with 52 tiny slips of paper for you to pause once a week throughout the year and record a message of hope or gratitude. Coil them up and tuck them in the tiny hole near the base and they become a permanent part of the display.

Artist Jill Davis on why the messages stay inside: “When you blow out your candles, you don’t tell the wish you made, otherwise it won’t come true. But more importantly, memories are always more beautiful than photographs, and the same is true of wishes. When you look at the little slips of paper accumulating in your Wishing Ball, I want you to think about the big picture those messages convey. Rereading the notes would be like looking backwards, or trying to step in the same river twice.”

The Story of Amethyst & Buddha

One day the Buddha received a gift from one of his youngest disciples, a “mala” or meditation chaplet made of amethyst, to be rolled under the fingers as mantras are recited.

Seeing the offering, accompanied by lavender leaves and Tibetan incense, Buddha cried tears of joy, moved as much by the young giver’s purity as by that of the stones.
