Sapphire: Sturdy Taurus is thrown off by anything that undermines that innate sense of stability, so use sapphire to ground you when dealing with nausea, vertigo, or motion or altitude sickness. This gemstone also helps increase your sense of calm, hope and happiness when life is hectic or overwhelming. If negative thoughts creep in, sapphire helps turn your mind toward the positive once again. Finally, when seeking truth and transformation, especially through a meditation practice, use this gemstone to help you reach your goal.
