“Dive into the sea of thought, and find there pearls beyond price.”

Nowadays millions of people are wondering blindly and hope to get or melt something by wearing gemstone or by adopting zodiac items due to ignorance, lack of knowledge, fear hopelessness,  more and more people have started wearing one gemstone or the other.

Some people have witnessed adverse effects and losses by wearing certain gems which were said to be suitable for them according to their astrologers but which proved to be harmful or very detrimental to them in actual practice due to which many natives hesitate wearing any gemstone or gemstones at all.

According to Indian Vedic Astrology Gemstones are representatives of a particular planet and wearing the planet’s gem will attract positive vibration of that planet. People wear gems for strengthening various planets. Many of the astrologers suggest that such gemstone will either bring beneficial effects or it will bring malefic effects and something good or bad is bound to happen in most of the cases where a native wears a gemstone belonging to a planet among Navagraha.

However, some astrologers do not have proper knowledge on the subject, and they suggest gems to their clients merely on the basis of particular set or preconceived theories and ideas, but most of these opinions and beliefs have given birth to misconceptions in gemstone astrology, and they have become the cause of problems to many natives interested in astrology, and hence the practice of blindly following such theories should be avoided.

Gemstones are also suggested by some of the astrologers as a remedy to negative planetary influences on the human body. When the gems are worn as the astrological remedy, the stone should touch the body with the bottom of the gem setting open. If worn as a remedy the stones have to be continually worn on the specific part of the body for prescribed periods. One can select Gemstones for wearing in several ways.

Gems are worn by  astrology or numerology ( by Vedic sun sign or western zodiac sign or by date of birth even some beliefs in recommending gemstones by the names of the natives)

NOTE: Most people know their Sun Sign, which can be easily found from the date of birth using widely available tables of sun sign dates. However, in many cases, when the date of birth is close to the border between two signs, such general tables can be wrong. This is because the precise date and time of the Sun’s entry into a Sign of the Zodiac differs quite substantially year after year. The above dates are a guideline only. Because of leap years, time zone differences and other factors, the exact day and time when the Sun changes signs varies from year to year.  You need to have your personal horoscope drawn up to know exactly which sign you were born under.  Even for the same year, the time of the Sun’s entry into, say, Aries will be very different in  different country’s,  if you are born close to the changeover dates (close to the cusp) of the signs,

The consideration of gemstones, being supported by planets and the interplanetary relationship has contradicted. Even if the stone theory is believed correct, more than 80 percent of charts will fall therein class wherever pleasing one planet by wearing one stone would create the opposing planet excite and react. The gains that are going to be neutralized by return.

If gemstones are so right in ever-changing fate and destiny, they should at least get some therapeutic effects additionally by getting your fever down by wearing them. However, sadly gemstones cannot demonstrate a single verifiable proof of changing one thing once worn and when removed. We mostly believe in good nutrition and general awareness about the Jyotish (good thoughts) for better lives.

If anyone thinks that purchasing a gemstone for a price will instantly change your destiny or miraculously save you from bad luck then you are sadly mistaken, my friend. If that was so then there would be no bad luck in this world and everyone would live happily ever after right?

We always believe that any positive outcome in Man’s life is through self-effort and self-belief. So readers are informed to take the spiritual guide to improve their current state rather than going after Gemstone or remedies. It will work sound.

Astrology is a way or method to understand one’s past life karma.  Your elder family member, guide, or Spiritual guides will guide you to achieve success through self-effort and self-belief. Combining these two will help one to lead happy and fulfilled life. Self-effort or self-belief is like an actual remedy that is going to resolve the actual problem.

No one gets success who believes in his fate and sits idle thinking that if he goes to the astrologer and get some gemstone, and he will succeed  and takes easy way to get things done can never come up in life as they fail to understand that success comes only after a lot of preparation, patience, self-belief and hard work.
