In Vedic astrology, gemstones are recommended based on your horoscope. It is believed that by wearing these prescribed gemstones you can overcome the obstacles in your chart. The cause of unhappy relationships or lack of success can be astrological. Wearing a certain gemstone may turn your love life and career around so you can have a fulfilling relationship.
Gems affects the subtle energy field, which emanates from every living thing, where our energetic and emotional habits, thought patterns, belief systems, and so on reside. The energy pattern of a gem directly affects one's emotional and mental energies, and over a period of time this promotes long-lasting changes.
But the correct use of Gems is quite necessary. Gems are classified in to two types : Hot And Cold. Ruby, Red coral, Diamond and Cat's eye are Hot gems whereas Pearl, Topaz, Blue Sapphire and Gomed are Cold in nature.
We select Gems to increase the efficiency or for removal of the deficiency. These remedial stones act in two ways; one is by its spectrum effects and other is by radioactive effects. When a ring is worn, Gem goes on continuously vibrating its power which is absorbed in the individual aura. The protective aura thus becomes powerful to resist any untoward vibrations coming from external sources.
There are Nine Stones for each Nine Planets respectively:
Sun: Ruby, used by royalty to focus and sustain their ability to command and rule. It sustains our vitality and will. Traits that it enhances are leadership, independence, purity. Weakness or afflictions are sometimes demonstrated by a sense of helplessness, but very often it shows up as an unreasonableness, egotism or self absorption, which is a sign of a weak sense of self. A weak planetary ruler of the ascendant (see Rahu, below) can also cause these symptoms, and a weak Mars can cause similar problems as well, which is why they must also be looked at astrologically. The ruby, unless in a balanced multi-gem bangle, should be used with care by Pisces, Gemini and Libra Ascendants, and with companion gems, for every ascendant. Ruby is generally good for Leo, Aries and Sagittarius Ascendants.
Moon: Pearl increases emotional stability, mental strength, friendliness and contentment. Weakness or afflictions are shown by anxiety, mental and emotional swings, worry, isolation or the inability to cope with relationships and people. An afflicted Mercury or Rahu can also cause some similar difficulties. Unless well balanced with other gems, consideration should be taken if the person is overweight, has high phlegm, congestion (Kapha) or for Taurus, Aquarius and Sagittarius Ascendants. Pearls are especially helpful for Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio Ascendants.
Mercury: Emerald gives mental alertness, memory, communication skills, discriminative intellect and mental control. When Mercury is weak or afflicted, a mental dullness, immaturity or poor memory retention may be evident. The logical part of the mind is not functioning in a normal way, which may cause daydreaming, anxiety, fantasies or an irrational outlook on the world. As mentioned, the Moon or Rahu can cause somewhat similar complaints, but Mercury is specifically the planet of intellect and communication. Emerald is generally pretty safe, unless the person is already overly mental. Aries and Scorpio Ascendants may find that it boosts their impulsiveness or egoism. It is especially favorable for Gemini, Virgo, Taurus and Libra Ascendants.
Jupiter: Yellow Sapphire enhances the qualities of Jupiter, such as wisdom, judgment, expansiveness, compassion, joyfulness, enthusiasm and faith. When Jupiter is weak, we feel contracted, without purpose in life, moody, pessimistic or having self pity. There may be financial problems, as generally this planet more than any other, has to do with prosperity. Too strong a Saturn can cause similar complaints. Jupiter is the best benefice and so is safe to strengthen, although it can be a source of some difficulties for Taurus and Libra Ascendants. It is particularly beneficial for Sagittarius, Pisces, Aries and Scorpio Ascendants.
Venus: Diamond helps increase attractiveness, artistic quality, grace, and charm. When Venus is afflicted we may feel trapped in a sensuous life style, sexually obsessive, or a creature of comfort. When weak, one may be coarse, crude, or aggressive. There may be troubled or inappropriate romances. It may be difficult to express love or other emotions in a positive way. A very strong Mars may appear to be a weak Venus and a weak or afflicted Mercury may make personal expression difficult. Diamonds, if of good quality, are relatively safe, because Venus is a benefice planet. It is especially good for Taurus, Libra, Capricorn and Aquarius Ascendants.
Saturn: Blue Sapphire helps bring balanced detachment, calm, practicality, and endurance. When weak or afflicted, it brings troubles, weakness, disease, vulnerability or anxiety. It can cause financial hardship, lack of drive, or insomnia. A difficult Saturn may cause manifestations similar to a weak Jupiter, Sun or Mars. Blue Sapphire should be used with great caution, unless in a navaratna, and even then the size and purity should be watched. It may cause problems for thin people, those having dry skin, or those remote from the world or already overly detached (Vata). It is a difficult planet for most, but is especially favorable for Capricorn, Aquarius, Taurus and Libra Ascendants.
Rahu: Hessonite Garnet is the gem for the shadowy planet Rahu, called the North Node in the West. In this age of media, electronic devices and electromagnetic radiation, Rahu is very much affecting the world in general. It helps to balance the influences of media like television, it aids a sense of clarity, of knowing one's own mind, and general popularity in society. When weak or poorly placed, it causes strange reactions, imaginings, occult influences, fear, agitation, addictive behavior, drugs, lack of sense of self, lack of regard for society's norms or dissipation. Therefore, Hessonite Garnet, also known in ancient India as cinnabar, is obviously a very good gem to wear in a Navaratna during this age.
Ketu: Chrysoberyl Cat's Eye is the gem of Ketu, called the South Node in the West. When weak, it causes doubt, uncertainty, poor discrimination, poor concentration or lack of insight. It is the planet of ultimate spiritual awakening. It causes tendencies that appear to be like a weak Ascendant. But as a weak Rahu brings lack of clarity and a clouding of perception, a weak Ketu brings doubt and questioning. The gem should be used with caution if the person is high in Pitta, as under the description for Mars, or if Ketu is in a sign of a planet that is weak or afflicted. However, if included in a Navaratna, this should be resolved by balancing both Ketu and the planet ruling the sign it falls under.
