Using gems in astrology
In Hindu astrology, the word graha means “to seize.” The nine planets or nava-grahas seize people at different parts of their life and influence them either positively or negatively.
Gemology is about using gems to alleviate the effects of these planets.
Some people say that a gem needs to be of at least two carats in order to have an effect.
Ramakrishna Pandit has been studying astrology for many years. In these videos, he gives an overview of how to choose gemstones.
Choosing a gem
One of the things Pandit talks about in the coming videos is how an astrologer chooses a gem.
Gems ought to increase positivity. They are chosen on the basis of the lagna.
Gemstones aren’t easy. You need to study the horoscope thoroughly. Same stone may not be suitable for the entire life. Depends on dasha and sub dasha.
Where you stand
How does the planet sit on the horoscope and who are the accompanying planets.
He cites examples using kumbha lagna and blue sapphire. Kumbha lagna is Saturn’s house (Shani).
Tula lagna is linked to diamonds.
The idea of dhrishti. Sitting in certain “houses” and “looking” at other planets.
Gems should touch the body
Broadly what he says.
Navaratnas are not suitable for everyone.
The gems should touch the body.
Gems absorb cosmic energy from the sun and dissipate to different parts of the body.
List of navagrahas: surya, chandra, angaraka, budha, guru, shukra, shani, rahu, ketu.
Each graha affects one part of the body. Depends on where they are situated in the horoscope.
It also has an emotional component. Anger, ancestral issues.
Gems and astrology are linked but complicated.
Please use a reliable astrologer if you wish to pursue this path.
