Ruby is red in colour and this colour and the crystalline nature has an influence on the individuals born under this sun sign. What are the qualities of a Cancerian and how does Ruby help in influencing the qualities of a Cancerian? Read on the qualities and birthstone of Cancer.

People born between June 21 and July 22 come under the astrological sign of Cancer or Karkat. The sign of the crab marks this fourth sign of zodiac and the ruling planet is Mercury. According to astrological calculations, Ruby happens to be the birthstone which can offer effective guidance towards the nature, relationships and financial matters in the life of the individual. It is basically the colour of the stone along with the associated properties and crystalline structure that believed to be the impacting factor. Both the positive and negative personality attributes get influenced by the birthstone of the Cancerian.

The Ruby Factor

This zodiac sign is considered to be the gateway to life where the seeds of life are born in the mystic waters. In terms of the spiritual realms, love and life are synonymous with the Cancer, thus the colour of passion, red. It symbolises new birth on all plains which gets manifested in all the facets. It is the power of red, which is effectively signified by its birthstone Ruby. It gets reflected as both the message and quest of this zodiac sign.

The Impact of Ruby

Although the birthstone for Cancer is Ruby there are other stones as well like, Emerald, Moonstone, Pearl and Sardonyx. As Ruby conducts the energies of the ruling planet Mercury, it makes the planet sympathetic towards the wearer of the gemstone and brings about major changes in his life.

Ruby fires up the heart with sparkles. It is generally considered to be the characteristic of the emotion of love that needs to be lifted to one of selfishness and veer towards the light of universal love. Ruby helps the wearer to attain just that, to feel compassion for all life.

On a spiritual plane, the whole heart of the wearer is illuminated with love and devotion through the forces of purification and transfiguration. The red of terrestrial fire of Ruby gets transmuted into the golden yellow of pure spiritual essence. It results in the inspiration of love of truth and wisdom that gets translated into divine wisdom.
