Description of Gems with Planets
 


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.

Stone of Pinkish Red color, it generally occurs in crystal of six sided prism. Ruby is the Gemstone, used to enhance the powers of the Sun. An individual whose Sun is well placed in the birth Chart can never be unsuccessful. There are several attributes which decides the superiority of the ruby. For instance, if it is immersed in milk, the red rays should break the liquid. Or if it is rubbed on a stone, the stone may show signs of friction but the ruby must not lose weight. When examined in the early morning sun against the mirror, if it throws out its rays on the lower part of the mirror, the ruby very high quality.

If on the other hand the stone lacks Lustre, is Brittle, has Cracks, or is Spotted, it is regarded as Flawed. On wearing a Ruby one becomes proof against the effect of poison. Its use leads to generate the mental and spiritual powers and special divine thoughts rise in mind. Manik or ruby balances Surya (Sun). Surya represents the king of the solar system in Jyotish. It also represents Authority, Power, Self, Father, Body and Health. Depending on the placement of Surya in your birth chart, the wearing of a ruby may be very auspicious in strengthening the positive influences of Surya. Surya, the sun acts like the Thalamus in the Human Physiology.

The sun is the central focal point in the solar system as is the Thalamus in our body. All activity in the solar system revolves around the sun. In our Physiology, all activity is controlled and ordered by the thalamus. Enlivening the positive influences of Surya strengthens the physiology and strengthens the qualities of Surya in our daily life. The stone of love, surrounds the user with an aura of beauty, and can actually transform their appearance. § Protects one from all negativity, and physical harm or illness. Known as the stone of royalty, it was believed that as long as a piece of ruby was around, wealth would be too.

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.

A quite, gentle shine and softness of the pearl has endeared it alike to Men and Women over the ages. Pearls comes in White, Black and with Tinges of Yellow, Blue, Salmon Pink, Red, Brown and Green. A pearl is considered flawed if it has cracks on the skin, a joint appearance, a mole, is lusterless, has mud or other material inside. Pearl represents the queen in Jyotish. The pearl is often called the "queen of the sea".

The pearl harmonizes Chandra, the moon which directly influences emotions, mind, affluence, and public. Wearing a pearl can bring harmony and stability to these influences. Chandra influences the seasonal, monthly and daily cycles and rhythms in the physiology and our emotions. Chandra, the moon, occupies a central role in the solar system and in our physiology.

This influence is represented by the hypothalamus in our physiology which controls our behavior, our emotions, our hormonal and reproductive cycles and our body temperature. It nourishes the physiology like a mother or queen and occupies a central place in the centre of the brain with the thalamus. When the planet moon is malefic, a person can suffer from loss of semen through urine, rheumatic and mental diseases. Due to malefic moon, who suffer from instability, life becomes full of struggles and circumstances are unfavorable, person should wear pearl.

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.

Emerald is Velvety green in color, The most coveted emerald is that which is radiant and smooth and has neither cracks nor dots. Emerald harmonizes and strengthens the positive influences of Budha or mercury. These influences include intelligence, education, speech, teaching, learning, communication, confidence, writing, drawing, trade, humor, wit, discrimination, diplomacy, intellect and commerce.

Emerald helps to lift depression and insomnia and promotes knowledge of the heart resulting in peaceful dreams. Helps to ease labor and delivery. Budha or Mercury is the "prince" in Jyotish and is influenced by Surya and Chandra. Budha or Mercury in the human physiology is associated with the sub-thalamic nucleus which resides in the brain and receives input from various parts of the brain which directly influences its activity. Similar to the placement of Budha or Mercury which revolves around Surya (Sun) and is directly influenced by that relationship, the sub-thalamic nucleus' activity is influenced by the input it receives and modulates its output accordingly. Emerald saves a person from troubles, increases power of faculty, gives mental peace, pacifies the anger and increases eye sight. It keeps the body health and mind happy. It is uses to counter the ill effects of mercury.

Mars: Red Coral helps stimulate courage, energy, insight and ability to win over opponents. Weakness is shown by lack of motivation, laziness, fear, passiveness, or inability to control their passions and/or temper. Care should be taken in the size of red coral used, if high sexuality, or fever (Pitta) is present. Gemini and Virgo Ascendants should be careful wearing red coral except with counterbalancing gems. Red coral is especially good for Aries, Scorpio, Cancer and Leo Ascendants.

Moonga, red and sindoori (vermilion) in color. The use of the coral in jewellery dates back to the Romans who considered it auspicious worn in amulets. Because of it auspiciousness, the coral, through not a precious stone, has been given a coverted place in Navaratnas. A good coral is opaquered, is perfectly round or oval and regular; is smooth, and gives out lovely splendorous. It is flawed if it is spotted, cracked, has more than one shade of color or the surface is anyway depressed or twisted.

Moonga influences Mangal or Mars which is responible for the field of activity, energy, courage, ambition, sports, property, strength, commander, technical ability, mechanical, forcefulness and bravery. Mangal or Mars is like a general with its focus on precision and power in activity. These structures in the brain control activity by providing checks and balances, activating and inhibiting impulses in the brain, and maintaining steadiness and precision of movement.

These influences can be strengthened with the wearing of Vidruma or coral when recommended. Any person for whom Mars is malefic should wear a Corel. For those who have been defeated by enemies and who are hopeless about future, struggling in life should wear coral.

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.

Yellow sapphire harmonizes and benefits Guru or Jupiter, the largest graha (planet) in the solar system. It signifies knowledge, wisdom, virtue, fortune, justice, education, future, religion, philosophy, devotion, children, distant travel, spirituality, truthfulness, prosperity and charity. Guru is the major instructor or teacher and influences action with the highest order and balance. Guru guides action in the most harmonious and uplifting manner and balances inner and outer input while simultaneously performing and monitoring action.

Guru or Jupiter's influence in the human physiology is through the globus pallidus. This globular structure is like a teacher in the physiology. It gives balanced and higher-order instructions, balances and maintains harmony between inner and outer input, manages and executes complex systems and enlivens activity in the brain while guiding action. It signifies highest-order thinking -- Knowledge has organizing power. It's use brings about affection and harmonious relations amongst family members The reputation of the person increases day by day and one is respected everywhere.

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.

The diamond which reflects the colors of the rainbow, is light and round but exhibits all its eight facets and is without lines or dots is best diamond. A defective or blemished diamond is set to cause great harm. Sukra or Venus is harmonized by diamond. Sukra represents luxuries, romance, partnership wealth, beauty, arts, comforts, jewelry, happiness, and vehicles. Diamonds are also associated with luxuries, jewellery, wealth, beauty etc. Sukra or Venus has since antiquity symbolized beauty, not just in material life but inner life as well. Diamonds high lustre symbolizes the refined liveliness and loveliness of nature within and around us. Diamond helps us get to the essence of things and grants us the courage to look within ourselves without illusion. Diamond inspires us to take better care of our health and strengthen our will power.

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.

Sani or Saturn represents longevity, discipline, authority, ambition, leadership, honesty, perfection, humility, elders, denial, delays, misery, adversity, accidents, conservatism and dutifulness. It's role is often symbolized as a servant. It's influence is often seen as restrictive or obstructive yet its influence also seeks to bring balance.It's influences may be harmonized by the blue sapphire. Sani is furthest from the Sun. Sani or Saturn in the human physiology is expressed through the activities of the putamen. The putamen, like Sani in the solar system, is placed at the outer edge of the basal ganglia. It's influence, like Sani, is that of a servant.

It receives major input and instructions that it transmits to the basal ganglia. Has the color of red smoke or honey. Also zericon, chemically it is silicate of zirconium and crystal and occurs either as a four sided prism or as water pebbles. To be consider auspicious, the stone should reflect a pure color, be homogenous and soft to touch. If it shows a blackish is rough to touch and looks like a piece of yellow glass, the gomedha is not auspicious. The best gomedha comes from Sri Lanka. In India the stone is found in Kashmir, Bihar, Kullu, Shimla and Koimbatore. This is a very strong gem and its' use can be adverse sometimes. It's wearing purifies the mind. The mind is charged with virtuous thoughts and positive attitude. Sapphire is worn to protect one from evil effect of Saturn.

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.

Gomed represents Rahu, the ascending node of the moon. It's natural significations include worldly desires, worldly benefits, laziness, gratification, and ignorance. It is by nature unpredictable and creates sudden changes and influences, rigidity and passion. It is similar to Sani or Saturn in its nature and influence. Traditionally, rahu is known as the "head of the dragon".

It is used to counter the ill effect of Rahu which causes students to be disinterested in studies and wife struck with sickness or a restless mind. In all these situations Hessonite helps.

In the human physiology, rahu corresponds to the head of the caudate. The caudate is involved in the control of the saccadic eye movements (the abrupt short shifts of focus in the eyes). The caudate influences memory in relation to orientation in space. The caudate is responsible for our ability to change behavior patterns. It is used to counter the ill effect of Rahu which causes students to be disinterested in studies and wife struck with sickness or a restless mind. In all these situations Hessonite helps.

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.

Cat's Eye harmonizes Ketu which is traditionally known as the "tail of the dragon". In Jyotish, Ketu is the descending node of Chandra (Moon). It's influences are similar to Mangal or Mars and include liberation, abstract thinking, asceticism, non-attachment, healing, moksha--enlightenment, wisdom and that which is hidden. Ketu's influence in the physiology is represented by the tail of the caudate. It's influence is over learning and emotions. It's wearing removes physical weakness. Mental worries are removed. If cat's eye acts favorably, it makes one a wealthy person.
