Role of Gemstones in Astrology

Gemstones are known to bring prosperity, peace and happiness. They also bring power, prosperity, name and fame. According to ancient scriptures “gems are powerful agents of energy which have direct influence on destiny and fate of humans”. They bring in positive energy and expel out negative energy. Tantra Shastra has stated human body as “an island made up of 9 gems”.

Mixed gemstones

Each of the gem (nav-ratnas) corresponds to 9 dhatus which altogether form the human body.

These 9 gems (nav-ratnas) are divided into 2 groups:

  • Precious
  • Semi-precious

In the precious group comes Diamond, Emerald, Ruby, Pearl and Blue-sapphire. Whereas, Cat's eye, Hessonite, Coral and Yellow-sapphire come in semi-precious gems.

Gemstones have magical powers. Before wearing any gemstone, some puja or ritual should be performed. It not only increases the benefic effects of the gemstones but also increases its power. These rituals release positive vibrations of the gemstones rapidly.

Every gemstone has some traits of a particular planet. Therefore, the puja or ritual must be performed on the particular day which is associated with that particular gemstone so as to increase its positivity. Metals also play a very important role when it comes to gemstones. Only the correct metal should be used for its corresponding gemstone. This helps in attaining maximum benefit from it.
