    You probably bought that evil-eye necklace or crescent-moon cuff because you thought they'd look cool. But, these powerful motifs are also rife with astrological and religious symbolism. In fact, many of the baubles we wear — our birthstones included — have special meanings.

    From ancient Egypt to medieval Europe, people wore occult symbols for good luck, health, protection, and higher knowledge. And, although they may not hold the same meanings they once did, they still have a lot of intriguing history.

    We're here to get you up to speed on that. So, next time someone says they like your necklace, you can share an interesting tidbit about it. You can also shop the slideshow for some spiritual new finds. After all, there's no better time of year to tap into the supernatural.
