Because of its color, early Greek legends associated amethyst with the god of wine and pleasure, Dionysus (or known as Bacchus by the Romans) and claimed it prevented intoxication. Other legends said it helped the wearer be clear-headed and quick witted – which sounds similar to what astrologer Camillo Leonardi suggested - that amethyst quickens intelligence and removes evil thoughts. Other beliefs about amethyst include –

  • It offers spiritual, emotional, and healing benefits.
  • It promotes healthy sleep and reduces migraines.
  • It clears anxiety and promotes a calmer mind.

So for the Aquarian who needs to calm down and get in touch with their spiritual side, the Amethyst gem is a good match.
