What’s The January Birth Stone?

It is called this because of the gemstone's resemblance to the red seeds of the pomegranate fruit.

Aquarius (20th January – 18th February)

  • Expect the unexpected with your Aquarius baby. They are often highly intelligent and love to explore new places with a fearless attitude. They are likely to be an individual, changeable, boisterous and charming.
  • Your Aquarius will likely be emotional with a stubborn streak. However, they are also known for empathy and they love the company of others. Forgetfulness is a common trait in Aquarius children so don’t be frustrated when they don’t do what they’ve been asked.
  • Encourage your mini-Aquarian to see a job through right to the end. This will help teach them staying power.
