Your October Birthday – Oh Iridescent, Remarkable You!

Your October Birthday – Oh Iridescent, Remarkable You!The Latin word for your birthstone means “Precious Jewel” and that’s what most people would say about you. You’re a gem of a friend, an indescribable treasure and a gift to those around you. You attract people with your kind heart and gentle qualities and make others feel safe and protected. Your friends admire your easy diplomacy and subtle abilities to lead.

Your birthstone, the Opal, was believed to have come from heaven in a flash of lightening. The Romans referred to the stone as “a child beautiful as love.” It was believed to have protective powers and could ward off evil and promote healthy eyesight. It could even be ground to a fine powder and consumed to prevent nightmares and offer other mysterious healing powers. The Opal is as old as the dinosaurs and was built around geothermal hot springs. If it is given as a gift, it represents faithfulness and confidence. That’s one of the reasons the stone fits you so well. You inspire confidence in others and you’re always a faithful and loyal friend. You can be trusted to keep your word and to be thoughtful about what you say and do.

The flower that represents October birthdays is the calendula, from the Latin Kalendae, meaning ‘first day of the month,’ which is when it usually blooms. Because of its strong connection to the sun, the calendula represents characteristics such as warmth and friendliness. From a religious standpoint, this flower also represents the Virgin Mary.

Happily for you, your nature is to bring passion and love to all you do and to speak up about the people and things you believe in. You express yourself well and that endears you to others. You have a little psychic awareness too and often know the motives of those close to you before they do, but with your kind heart and loving ways, you make it easy for them to grow on their own terms.

Yes, you’re quite remarkable and since it’s your birthday, celebrate your day in a way that reflects all the colors of the rainbow. After all, you’re opalescent all the time! Happy Birthday to you!
