About Astrology

For thousands of years, different cultures and traditions from around the world have looked to the night sky for guidance.

Astrology is the ancient study of planets and constellations, how they constantly move in relation to the earth and how this cosmic dance affects us on a personal level. From full moon craziness to star crossed lovers and technology thwarting retrogrades – the far reaching power of the planets impacts our everyday/modern lives.

Know thyself? At The Alkemistry we honour two important dimensions of your astrological alignment – your sun and moon sign. You can harness the power of your astrological blueprint by wearing gemstones that are energetically connected to the constellations which shape your life.

Discover your unique astrological alignment and head to our personalised selection page or to unfold the knowledge of your sun & moon sign and what they mean for you, please continue……


Star Sign

Most people know their star (or sun) sign. We look up our sign for horoscopes, check out compatibility with a new partner and know our strengths from our zodiac traits. Based on the position of the sun at birth, star signs represent our masculine energy (which both males and females embody). It is your outward personality traits and conscious actions. But this only tells half the story.



Moon Sign

The lesser talked about moon sign is equally important to gaining cosmic insights. Like star signs, moon signs also fall into one of the 12 zodiacs. The moon represents your feminine side, your subconscious, the person you are when no one is watching. It rules your emotions, your needs, your insecurities and most importantly your instincts.
