Gems & Stones

Prescribing a gemstone to ward off any planetary afflictions in a birth chart of any person is a very delicate procedure. The prescription of a gem depends largely on the astrologer's keen observation and intuition. The stone must be match the qualities of the person. The stone must 'arouse' the qualities that a person needs to become success. We must find out which gems will boost the wearer's luck and prosperity and prescribe accordingly. The remedy must play down the bad qualities of the person while enhancing good ones.

For accurate gems remedies astrologer must have details like:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Time of birth
  • Place of birth
    • Nowadays, wearing a gem stones has become quite fashionable. In order to prescribe any gem to any individual his or her birth chart should be thoroughly examined to see which of the malefic planets are in chidra bhavas or are functional malefics ( malefics on account of the lordship of inauspicious house i.e., the 6th, 8th and 12th). If we will prescribe a stone for any of such planets, we will be only strengthening and accelerating their malefic tendencies. Therefore, the stones associated with the planets that are functional malefics for an individual should never be recommended.

      After ascertaining the type of stone the next step is the weight to be used. This is a very tricky problem. Too big stone will cause an overload' while too little will not act at all. One must relate intelligently, the weight of the stone to the strength of the corresponding planets. There are strict rules and procedures for wearing a gem. Simply buying the stone at a store and wearing it will not only serve any purpose but will also put a life in gems by mantras and pooja.
