Your Zodiac sign can give you powerful insight into your past, present and future, but it is not an isolated system. Your body and mind form a complex matrix that responds to colors and crystals. The way you respond to color is usually very individual and is related to your own past experiences and your personality. I would suggest experimenting with colors and jewelry designs and try to understand what feels wright to you and your soul.
