Mystical Properties

Though not meant to replace traditional medical treatment, Sapphire is used for clear thinking.


Lore

Kings used to wear sapphire around their necks as a powerful defense against harm. The stone preserved the wearer from envy and attracted divine favor.

Sapphire represents truth, sincerity and consistency. Sapphire engagement rings are given to express the commitment and loyalty of their heart. Prince Charles chose a blue sapphire for Princess Diana's engagement ring.

The three-ray, six-point star effect seen in some cabochon sapphires happen when rutile inclusions are present. The star on the sapphire moves on the stone as the light from a single source moves.

As the YOUNGEST...

Those who are the baby of the family rarely have any complaints about their position within the birth order hierarchy. This is one time when coming in last has its rewards - and plenty of them. The last-! born is blessed with a number of enviable personality traits. But believe it or not, the family baby has a dark side, too.

Positives: They have strong people skills and love to entertain and talk to others. They make friends easily and immediately make others feel at home. They are extroverts - energized by the presence of other people and are not afraid to take risks. The youngest are the family clowns, outgoing charmers, and personable manipulators - they know how to get just what they want without a smile ever leaving their face.

Negatives: Last-borns love the limelight, and so they should, because they're often basking in it. They have a strong fear of rejection and a short attention span. They thrive in nonstop fun and tend to get bored easily. To some extent, they're self-centered. They may harbor unrealistic expectations of finding a relationship that is always fun or perfect - and of course, such relationships simply do not last. they know how to get just what they want without a smile ever leaving their face. They can also be rebellious, temperamental, manipulative, and impatient.

Last-borns carry the curse of not being taken very seriously and they're often painfully aware that they're the weakest person in their family. One minute they're adored and praised - the next minute, someone is tying their shoelaces for them because they're "too little" to do it themselves. The result?

Last-borns can have a tendency to be a bundle of ambivalence - sure of themselves one day, and completely without self-confidence the next.

Parenting tip: Don't let "the baby" get away with murder, even if he is so cute and charming. Sports should teach him that he should play his role and be responsible for his actions. Give him rules to stick by and be firm about them.

Be sure your last-born has his/her fair share of responsibilities around the house and in family affairs. Last-borns often end up with very little to do because everyon e wants to do it for them. And remember, that the baby must grow up, too.
