A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.
I brew a pretty good cup of tea and will read the tea leaves for you.
Remember that Pluto rules nuclear power.
The explosive passion of Pluto has the rich, dark red wine color of the bloodstone.
THE ASTROLOGY OF BLOODSTONE
Bloodstone has two rulers: Mars and Pluto. And I’ve given it the assignment of Scorpio. The reasons are below. This is a Pluto ruled gemstone. Mars, the first ruler of Scorpio (and later, Pluto was given ruler ship over this zodiac sign) rules the red blood cells of the body, so this is a perfect fit. Given Bloodstone’s vaunted energy and vitality it gives to the wearer, only Mars will do here. Our ‘engine’, which is our daily physical energy, depends upon Mars in our natal chart. With the “drops” of red blood on the dark green gemstone, Mars is the only one that can be selected.
But on a deeper, Plutonian level, this gemstone is about our DNA; our heritage from a family long past that we didn’t even know. And our family DNA is with us whether we realize it or not. For those who look at our family tree, the information can be monumental and important. Why? Because we can look at our past family members and see patterns of behavior and perspective setting up.
What they were, we may be. And to borrow from a history saying, “What we forget we are doomed to repeat.” Well, it’s the same in the family structure too. We all have a miasm; its simply a matter of knowing what it is. Then, we have a CHOICE to make.
We can either choose to carry it forward into our present day family–or NOT. And it is here that Bloodstone can play an integral part in helping us define what we are and whether we want to carry on that genetic/family heritage.
Bloodstone helps us DISCRIMINATE between good family genes and weak ones that hold us in a destructive pattern. That is why Bloodstone works on two levels simultaneously. Mars works on the physical level and Pluto on the family heritage level.

These gemstones connect with our deeper core values of this personality in this lifetime BUT, they also connect with our SOUL who has far more strength built up in it as a result of hundreds of thousands of lifetimes. This is the phenomenal magic of Strength gemstones. They are able to ACCESS this vault of built-upon and earned spiritual strength so it can help us get through some present difficulty/test/initiation that we’re putting ourselves through in this lifetime at this moment.
It ‘feeds’ us so that we don’t give up, despair or want to check out because the life lesson is “too hard” to deal with. Not all people are strong spiritually speaking. We have baby spirits to ancient spirits in human body on this Earth. No one is created equal. And we’re all working on collecting that very necessary soul strength so that we can take on tougher and tougher challenges–and work through them successfully instead of failing them.
Being grounded is essential for living down here on our Earth. One of the most interesting facts about Bloodstone is that it is highly sensitive to heat. That means, if you wear it, you are ‘exciting’ the energy of this gemstone and it’s going to start sending out its energy into your aura quite rapidly.
Today, it is seen as the Mother Goddess stone
