Your Birthstones by the Chinese Zodiac Sign

2020 is "The Year of the Rat" and if you celebrate the Lunar New Year like I do, you've already been feasting with friends and family for several days. The Lunar New Year is celebrated for 15 days and usually starts in January and ends in February. It's celebrated in China and most parts of Southeast Asia.


If you were born during the years of the Rat, then your personality traits are optimistic and energetic. You're kind to your friends and family and you are very sensitive to other's emotions. Stubborn and opinionated can be part of your traits but that's because you allow yourself to speak up. You're great at saving money but you can also spend recklessly with your tendency to hoard things that you love.


The birthstone for the Year of the Rat is the Garnet. Garnet is the "Stone of Commitment." It inspires love and devotion and is a powerful energizer that aligns serenity with passion. Garnet brings hope during difficult times and helps you let go of obsolete things. This stone brings success in matters of the heart as well as business.
