Birthstones and Zodiac - Pedras do mês e os signos do zodíaco

How do the twelve tribes of Israel relate to birthstones?

The writings of Flavius ​​Josephus (1st century) and Saint Jerome (5th century) connected the 12 stones on the breastplate with the 12 signs of the zodiac. The main idea was that each of the precious stones had special powers associated with the corresponding astrological sign that brought therapeutic benefits or would work as talismans.
It wasn't exactly the modern concept of the gemstone of the month. In this astrological model, each person should have a collection of 12 different gems and use the appropriate stone during the ascension of the corresponding sign. That was similar to India's astrological tradition, that attributes 9 gemstones to 9 planets and prescribes the use of a particular one, according to a person's state of health and the challenges they face in life.

 

Como é que as doze tribos de Israel se relacionam com pedras de nascimento?

Os textos de Flavius ​​Josefus ( sec. I) e de São Jerónimo (sec. V) estabelecem a ligação entre as 12 pedras no peitoral e os 12 signos do zodíaco. Assim, cada pedra preciosa tinha poderes especiais associados ao signo astrológico correspondente, trazendo benefícios terapeuticos ou servindo de amuleto.

Ainda estava longe do conceito moderno de pedra do mês. Neste modelo astrológico, deveria possuir-se uma colecção de 12 gemas diferentes e usar a gema apropriada durante a ascensão do signo correspondente, assemelhando-se à tradição astrológica da Índia, que atribui 9 gemas diferentes a 9 planetas e prescreve o uso das gemas, de acordo com o estado de saúde do seu utilizador e dos desafios que enfrenta na vida.
