Astrological Effects of Gemstones

By Sanjeev Kumaaar

Each planet has been astronomically classified with a certain nature, feature, and impact on humans. Similarly, each gemstone associated with each of those planets is of some unique characteristic and holds a certain impact over its bearer. Vedic astrology believes that the positioning of planets and the interrelation of different planets formed at the time of the birth of an individual affects the entire life, as well as the nature and attributes of an individual. Sometimes, the positioning of planet(s) is weak or unfavorable, and thus leads to unpleasant occurrences in one's life. To minimize this impact, use of certain gemstones are considered to be effective.

Each gemstone holds some power in it to draw cosmic rays towards it and then turn them favorable for its bearer. Also, gemstones work as a remedy for eliminating the ill-effects of weak or malefic planets in a person's horoscope. At the same time, gemstones enhance and proliferate the benefits of the presence of benefic planets in a horoscope.
