Changing Your Luck With Gemstones And Crystals
Gemstones- An Introduction
From time immemorial those tiny fragments of heaven known as gemstones have bewitched men and women of all races and creeds, not simply for their cosmetic value but in many cases for the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual purposes of healing.
Many references relating to the curative properties of both gems and metals may found in books as diverse as the Bible, the Hindu Vedas and even in contemporary writings of people like Edgar Cayce. In fact, more recently there is an ever-growing and almost overwhelming interest in this fascinating subject.
As a practising Sidereal astrologer using Hindu predictive techniques, my studies and research have led me deeper and deeper into the realm of gems, the unique properties contained in them and how, when utilised correctly, can transform those that wear them.
At this point, it should be noted that modern-day astrology rarely makes reference to the significance of this important branch of the science. There’s an intricate relationship between gems and the electromagnetic effects of the planets.
There is considerable variance among modern writers on the subject and this probably accounts for the simplistic approach taken by the general public who are fed ” year – market ” astrology and purchase their birthstone month by month as determined by these ” generalists “. Is it any wonder the sceptics are going for the jugular. And rightfully so!!
How Gemstones Work
Before discussing the right approach for selecting and prescribing gems, the question of how a clod of earth can actually affect us should be considered.
Along with the recent interest in the dynamics of gems, metals and crystals, there’s been an increase in clinical studies leading to an emergence of a scientific model. As a simple analogy, consider the human body to be a large battery ie a saline solution of blood, lymphatic fluid and other liquids. It simultaneously produces electrical and neural impulses resulting in an electromagnetic field or ‘aura’. Certain gems and metals exhibit electromagnetic properties.
The introduction of a resonating electrical field – a gem – into the human field, begins to interact and create modifications in the human electromagnetic field. In fact, researchers such as Robert Becker and Andrew Merino have shown that the piezoelectric effects in human tissue are due to the structural protein called collagen.
They maintain that this effect is a biological transducer. It is capable of converting outside stimuli into recognisable signals. This affects cellular changes. In other words, gems can be converted into signals inside one’s body!
Long before modern researchers understood the whys and wherefores of the subject, astrological sages of India were onto it. Their sacred texts had already advocated the therapeutic value and use of minerals. Their prodigious insights into on the atomic nature of matter, human consciousness and celestial mechanics. With these scientific concepts, it seems that the gem theory isn’t so fantastic after all.
Prescription of the correct gems
In prescribing a gem for use its important to consider the following carefully. Using the Sidereal Zodiac take note of –
- Birth Data including as accurately as possible the time, place and date.
- Planetary dignity i. e. positional, motional, directional, aspectual and also harmonic strength.
- Present and future planetary trends as per astrological cycles.
- Metals, gems and jewellery presently worn. In some cases removing these is sufficient to bring desired changes.
The birth map and planetary characteristics reveal strengths and weaknesses as described above. The planets are points of resonating energy as well as interceptors of background radiation fields. These planets correlate and modify biological processes.
If a planet is poorly placed in a horoscope the deficiencies are reflected in the corresponding life events. This requires a boost of energy found in the gem.
The age at which these deficiencies or critical trends appear can also be determined beforehand. By studying the life cycle precautionary measures can be taken to reduce undesirable effects to a minimum.
The Use of Gems and Crystals
Once the remedial gem has been selected it’s then important to select the correct metal and planetary timing for the setting. Above all, the appropriate finger for use. The gem must make contact with the skin.
Each finger represents dominant planetary energy ( which can be noticed in the study of palmistry ) which can best utilise the healing property of the gem selected. The following is a broad guideline:-
Fingers of Fate
First or Jupiter finger – Yellow sapphire or topaz
Second or Saturn finger – Blue sapphire
Third or Sun finger – Ruby
Fourth or Mercury’s finger – Green Emerald and Pearl.
Other planets’ gems may also be worn on harmonious fingers. As an example :
A Cancer ascendant requires a strong Moon as it is the Ruler of the first house. If the Moon is located in a weak house such as 6, 8, or 12 and under malefic influence – hard aspect of Saturn, Nodes or Mars, wearing of a Pearl or Moonstone on the pinky or third finger would mitigate those influences.
The astrologer might also prescribe measures such as fasting on the associated days of malefic planets afflicting the Moon to further reduce the negative results.
With the above criteria satisfied, a compatible gem can be worn with confidence. In fact, the results can sometimes be so overwhelming that a slow introduction is necessary. Via the meridians, in the fingers, radiant energy from the gems is conveyed to glandular and nerve centres in the body. This is where the changes take place.
It is important to also note though that side effects can sometimes occur. This is not unlike a doctor prescribing a medicine that may technically cure a complaint but may cause minor irritation in other ways. For this reason, it is crucial for the astrologer to monitor his client’s response over time by studying the effects of one gem at a time. Best results are sustained this way.
There are many instances in which remarkable changes have been achieved, materially and mentally. It’s satisfying to know that beyond theory, astrology actually employs these remedial techniques as an enhancement with tangible results.
One of the most common questions people have asked me over the years is: “Can I change my destiny. Does my free will to change the outcome of my life have any relevance?” The question is an important one. It has resulted in the war called Fate versus Free Will – not only in philosophical circles but in the astrological community as well.
In answering these people I take the middle ground which harmoniously balances both extremes by telling them that the Great Law of Cause and Effect in our universe requires that certain events take place as a balance for actions, thought, words and above all – motive – in the form of fate but that your free will allows you to perceive or experience those events in whichever way you choose.
The work of many modern-day astrologers and “fortune tellers” falls miserably short of real satisfaction for the seekers that come to them. Certain events or qualities of their nature are divulged to them in a ” ….that’s’ correct isn’t it…?” fashion without empathy.
Empathy is the prime trait which creates an intuitive astrologer. It places the reader in the correct position i.e. the position of the seeker or client so that the experience of that seeker is intuited. In this way, the horoscope becomes a secondary element to the person being read and the astrologer also feels the emotion of the client’s need as well as seeing all the gobbledygook of astrological symbols on a piece of paper which is symbology to the average person.
If a patient is suffering a malady and visits the doctor, it’s hoped that the he will avoid the technicalities of medico-speak and explain how the sufferer can get better by way of diet, exercise or medication. Unfortunately, too many practitioners of esoteric subjects have fallen prey to the mumbo jumbo lingo and forgotten the real needs of those that come to them.
Each planet signifies different departments of our lives. When at birth a planet exhibits a weakness, it reflects that weakness in the respective area of life. If we suffer continuing health problems, this could be due to an afflicted or weak Sun. In this case, the gems and metals for the Sun would release the red cosmic color into our being and thereby strengthen us.
Other remedial techniques to strengthen the Sun and therefore the physical system includes hatha yoga postures such as Surya Namaskar or the Sun worship round of exercises. Wearing orange, warm colours and red gems such as ruby or garnet may be of use in this case.
Marriage and relationships are an important aspect of our lives and when Venus which is the ruling planet for emotional and marital satisfaction is weak life becomes distressing and we lose the capacity for joy. Sharing life with someone is a great thing but often disharmony and difference of opinion creates separation and heartache.
The gems yellow sapphire and golden topaz are said to attract the right man for a woman and appease and strengthen Jupiter. Mantras to Venus and Friday fasts are advised to improve conjugal happiness. In the matter of career, if Saturn is weak it lessens one’s discipline and restricts achievement. For this reason, it is important to empower Saturn with the use of gems such as blue sapphire, lapis lazuli, and amethyst. Fasting on Saturdays is also recommended if you have the willpower.
In some texts, it is said that Saturn may be appeased through the feeding of old or destitute men on a Saturday with salty products. Some of the measures mentioned do indeed sound strange but there is an age-old and time tested authority behind these statements and in practice, they do seem to work. The ideal goal of astrology, both in the eastern and western traditions is to provide a clear and practical guideline for our lives. Vedic astrology offers a framework by which we may enhance our awareness and spiritual growth through contact with the inner Light of our heart.
GEMS FOR PLANETARY HEALING
Planetary Healing with the Sun - Surya
Let us chant the glories of the Sun god, whose beauty rivals that of a flower. I bow down to him, the greatly effulgent son of Kasyapa, who is the enemy of darkness and the destroyer of all sins.
The Sun has a square body and honey-coloured eyes. He is this is sort of more for the healing of the corporate in the healing clean, intelligent and possesses only a little hair on his head. He signifies the ego, will and physical vitality. One’s father and career is deciphered through the Sun’s position at birth.
Ruby – gemstone of the Sun for Leo
Ruby is the gemstone of the Sun, and this connection gives us a good picture of its therapeutic properties. The sun represents the masculine principle, thus Ruby stimulates the masculine side of the energy spectrum. It’s intense energies increase vitality and life-force, and stimulate the mind, promoting motivation, determination, and strength of will.
Its energy helps us to be decisive and to take action to bring about what we want in our lives. It can be used to overcome lethargy and help fight against fatigue, and can also be helpful when dealing with stress or the feeling of being mentally overwhelmed.
Its energetic properties help to cultivate a sense of power and confidence, and to dissolve fears. It also has aphrodisiac properties, amplifying sensuality, pleasure and feelings of love and closeness. Ruby has powerful protective energy and can provide a force of light to ward off dark energy and nightmares.
The intensity of Ruby’s energy, however, has the potential to be overstimulating, and as a result, it tends not to be used in meditation because of its tendency to invigorate and cultivate wakeful, active energy.
Primary Gem – Ruby. It is used for eliminating the negative effects of a badly placed or aspected Sun at birth. It is a hot gem and its constant use should be monitored for excessive effects like insomnia, dry skin, and systemic overheating, particularly in summer months.
For women, their “glow” may diminish if this gem is used haphazardly. On the positive side, it gives, strength to the body will power to a weak-minded person and generally good fortune all around. It should be worn on the 3rd finger.

Planetary Healing with the Moon - Chandra
I offer my obeisances to the Moon-god, whose complexion resembles curds, the whiteness of conch shells, and snow. She is the ruling deity of the soma-rasa born from the ocean of milk, and he serves as the ornament on top of the head of Lord Shambu.
The Moon has a round face and shining white countenance. Fine sweet speech and a lusty nature are her characteristic traits. She is also of the unsteady mind. The Moon governs the mind and emotions and is the pivotal point of the Vedic horoscope. One’s mother and early life experiences can be seen from the Moon. The system of forecasting life events is also calculated from Her longitude.
Pearl-gemstone of the Moon for Cancer
Pearl is the gemstone of the Moon, and it therefore nurtures and cultivates the feminine side of the energy spectrum. It can, therefore, be a catalyst for deepening empathy and sensitivity, as well as encouraging introspection and strengthening our connection to the imagination and our intuitive senses.
The quality of encouraging introspection has given pearl a reputation for helping people discover, and bring to the surface, their true selves. It cultivates a sense of peace and tranquillity. It also helps us to look within our hearts, which nurtures a sense of conscience which brings out honesty, sincerity and integrity in a person’s behaviour.
It helps to amplify and highlight the loving, nurturing, motherly aspects of our nature, and it can, therefore, be useful in bringing balance where masculine energies are dominating and causing aggressive or uncompassionate behaviour.
Pearl can be used as a reminder and aid to keep us on the path of compassion, and ultimately happiness. Physically, a pearl is believed to assist with digestion and promote the healing of internal organs, as well as increasing fertility.
Primary Gem – Pearl. This gem has a very soothing effect on the emotional and mental level. It promotes sound sleep and peace of mind. It is said that pearl absorbs negative energies from the wearer. This is why it should be washed every so often to remove these vibrations.
It is said to cure physical problems such as eye disease, coughs and colds, an impurity of blood, etc. It also confers good fortune on the wearer. It is to be worn on the third finger.

Planetary Healing with Mars - Kuja
I offer my obeisances to Sri Mangala, the god of the planet Mars, who was born from the womb of the Earth goddess. His brilliant effulgence is like that of lightning, and he appears as a youth, carrying a spear in his hand.
Mars possesses bloody red eyes and is liberal, fickle, bilious and angry in temperament. He is thin-waisted and slender in the physique. His nature is one of cruelty and his rulership over disputes and injury is well known. He rules raw physical passion, brothers and lands and property.
Red Coral-gemstone of Mars for Aries and Scorpio
Red coral is the gemstone of Mars. It has qualities which stimulate passion and can encourage the surfacing and expression of intense emotions. This can be a powerful aid in processing suppressed painful emotions which, left unexpressed, would cause psychological and physical stress. Bringing these emotions to the surface helps to process and let go of them, and begin the process of healing any damage they have caused.
Red Coral shares some common ground with Ruby in that it helps to amplify determination, motivation and the will to act and put things into motion. It stimulates our drives and desires and can amplify the force and power of our intentions and efforts.
Physically, Red coral can be used to stimulate and heat the blood, and to give a boost to sexual energy. In conjunction with the right intention, it can help us stand firm in matters of self-discipline. It can also give us strength when standing for our beliefs and principles during intense social interactions.
Of course, these energies must be balanced as they have the potential to make us impulsive and perhaps make rash decisions and become aggressive, if we allow our ego and masculine energies to dominate.
Primary Gem – Red Coral. For a lift in your energy, confidence, and self-esteem try wearing a piece of red coral. This gem should also be balanced with other gems for best results as intense reactions can occur with some wearers. It is a hot gem and is said to help fight infectious diseases, colds, headaches and fevers.
It is also useful in poor marital relationships. It should not be used by people with a poor skin condition. Its use in gold on the third finger ensures best results.

Diamond is the gemstone of Venus. It can assist in relieving tension, fear and uncomfortable thoughts and sensations, clearing the aura and cultivating radiance and loving energy. It can be used to bring clarity and to clear negative or distorted energy, which can help to prevent nightmares and relieve stress.
Diamond is known for its ability to conduct and amplify energy, so it is very important to keep in mind that when attempting to use diamond to our advantage, we should be particularly aware of our intentions and the resulting emotional energy we are projecting.
Channelling positive intent and loving energy through diamond can enhance our potential to manifest positive and beautiful outcomes and experiences, and to create opportunities and expand potential, but amplifying negative or hostile intentions is likely to attract undesirable consequences.
With the right intention, a diamond can help us to develop our sense of self-empowerment, and to find strength in times of adversity. Diamond can help us nurture our inner selves, and allow our true nature to shine out with confidence and beauty.
Primary Gem – Diamond. For people experiencing difficulties in a relationship, this gem has been considered as very useful. For peaceful relationships and sexual fulfilment, diamond is said to be useful (probably why most rings contain diamonds).
A diamond may bring financial prosperity, popularity and success to the wearer. For relief from ailments such as diabetes, urinary tract infection etc many writers have advised the use of this gem. It is to be worn in silver or platinum preferably, in the second finger.

Yellow Sapphire-gemstone of Jupiter for Sagittarius and Pisces

Planetary Vibrations and Mantras

In the Sonic Healing Room we will introduce you to the principles and techniques of mantras and sacred sound vibrations for realigning your subtle bodies. Feel the energy of the planets as you discover their secret language. Experience harmony of the spheres and tune into the Planetary and Angelic healing forces.
Yagna & Fire Ceremonies
Vedic ceremonies are done in order to clear any imbalance of energy in the home or office space. This is the traditional and appropriate ceremony to perform when entering into a newly acquired property, a house, apartment, shop or an office.
All enclosed spaces create an energy field which is further conditioned by the auras of the people who use the space and the interpersonal dynamics that occur in it. The purpose of this ceremony is to transmute the negative into a positive beneficial force and to remove all obstructive elements. It consists of a Ganesha Puja, a purificatory ceremony and an invocation of the VastuPurusha for blessing the space and affording protection.
Ceremonies can also be conducted for specific star signs and/or planets. The full ceremony for all planets is called NavagrahaHoma.
Yantras, Mandalas and Talismans
Do you have problems? Really togh ones that just don’t seem to go away?
Yantras or Vedic talismans are mystical designs and diagrams of power. They have been used for thousands of years to evolve human awareness and spiritual wisdom. Worldly benefits are also said to result from meditation on the sacred diagrams. These yantras may be purchased commercially but seem to have little or no value unless prepared under strict guidelines by qualified Tantrik practitioners. Efficacy of mantra and vibrational healing also relates to the time of the day and year when the activity is commenced.
Different phases of the Moon, Sun and planets determine the fruits of the activity of the yantra. For this reason, a lot of work, including traditional Vedic fire ceremonies and distant cleansing of your aura during the rituals is conducted.
The talisman or yantra is prepared and sent along with other healing herbs and powders for your use as per the instruction of the practitioners ( astrologers, tantriks and metaphysicians who will prepare the remedies and talisman).

The Ten Goddesses or Objects of Knowledge
The ten objects of transcendental knowledge are known as DasaMahaVidya. Each of these objects has been symbolised as a female deity or Goddess in the Hindu tradition of worship. In truth, these Goddesses simply represent the cycle of time and life and the cosmic energies which ebb and flow through our lives and the cosmos. These ten energies contain all wisdom, all potential – past present and future.
Here in the sphere of mystic designs you will find the Cosmic graphical representation of each of these Powerful Goddesses or Powers of Nature. Each is unique in its shakti (Power) and is capable of bestowing its inherent Power on those who meditate and focus on the representative designs.
Select one of the ten Goddesses and meditate on the geometric shape which represents Her and allow the energy to percolate within your being. It is said that each Goddess blesses the worshipper with her gifts as per Her Energy.
First Object of Transcendental Knowledge
The Power of Time
By meditating on this mystic design you will intuitively experience the meaning of time and the fact that time itself is the devourer of all. Time is the medium within which all things are born and die.
Therefore this yantra bestows on the meditator fearlessness, conquest of time and death and immortality. Those who choose to worship this yantra, are disassociated from the world and as such need to consider their responsibilities in the traditional sense before endeavouring to connect with its Power.
Second Object of Transcendental Knowledge
The Power of Sound
Tara appears as a light or star in the abyss of the first moments of creation of the cosmos. The word ‘Tara’ literally means a star but also as reference to Her who rescues from worldly existence those drowning in suffering.
By meditation on Her design, one is freed from the trammels of earthly existence, develops the Power of speech and experiences peace within oneself. Tara is the great Goddess of the Budhist tradition, though historically has Her beginnings in Hinduism. Now I wrote all this
THIRD OBJECT OF TRANSCENDENTAL KNOWLEDGE
The Power of Perfection
This yantra represents the young beautiful Goddess, who has dominion over the three worlds. Meditation on this design results in the Power of attraction in its worshiper, allowing him or her to captivate the world.
FOURTH OBJECT OF TRANSCENDENTAL KNOWLEDGE
The Power of Knowledge
This yantra embodies the principals of Space. As Kali is Time, Bhuvanesvari is Space. In this way, both Goddesses adequately represent Einstein’s concept or theory of relativity, in as much as Space/time is the dual media in which the Cosmos functions.
Through worship of the design of the Goddess of Space and knowledge, one experiences oneself as an omnipresent being. Her meditation is said to confer everlasting knowledge and as such is not different to the Goddess Saraswati.
FIFTH OBJECT OF TRANSCENDENTAL KNOWLEDGE
The Beheaded Goddess
The one who sacrifices. This mystic design is one of the most mysterious. It represents the Goddess who has beheaded herself and holds her head in her hand as blood spurts forth from her neck. It is not as frightful as it may first seem and actually represents the Spirit of sacrifice as the law of life, the law of evolution and the way of atonement on the path of Karma.
Just as the Sun pours forth its vitality, its rays of light and warmth in an endless sacrificial rite, so too the meditation on the design of Chhinnamasta deepens the capacity of the individual to surrender and share oneself with all. All the negative traits of nature are to be surrendered in the process.
SIXTH OBJECT OF TRANSCENDENTAL KNOWLEDGE
The Power of Death
Whereas Chinnamasta is the sudden final death of the ego, Bhairavi could be considered to be the slow process of ‘dying’. This process in fact begins at the moment of the birth of all things and through this process of Kali, Time, which is closely related to Her, all things must end. Meditation on Her mystic design, gives insight into the process of death and the eternal transcendence of one’s own Spirit.
SEVENTH OBJECT OF TRANSCENDENTAL KNOWLEDGE
The Smokey One
The Power of Poverty
Meditation on this yantra of Dhumavati is an unusual one. Whereas many of the Goddesses, even the fearful ones, exhibit an appeal of beauty, Dhumavati is depicted as an ugly old woman. She is reflected in all of the aspects of life which we shun, i.e. the diseased, the destitute, the forlorn and those that are outcast. This meditation on Heryantra deepens one’s conviction that all objects in this universe are indeed in a state of decay and that one’s true self is truly not an object of knowledge.
EIGHTH OBJECT OF TRANSCENDENTAL KNOWLEDGE
The Power of Cruelty
Meditation on this mystic design is said to endow the meditator with the Power to control your enemies and those who seek to harm you. In all contests, and all legal battles, Her Power is notorious. This reflects the cosmic cycle of survival of the fittest. Through the meditation on this yantra, your success in competition is secured.
NINTH OBJECT OF TRANSCENDENTAL KNOWLEDGE
The Power of Rulership & Domination
Through meditation on Matangi’s emblem, you’ll come in touch with the royal cosmic Powers. The Power of Dominion. All wishes are fulfilled as the yantra works on providing the meditator, you – with a lustrous energy which attracts all the necessary worldly comforts of happiness, peace and prosperity. As she is known as the elephant Power, great strength is also endowed on the worshipper.
TENTH OBJECT OF TRANSCENDENTAL ABUNDANCE
The Power of Wealth & Prosperity
Kamala is considered the Goddess bestowing great fortune on her worshippers. The yantra embodies these Powers of prosperity and abundance and in fact relate very much to the Goddess Laksmi who is probably better known and more popularly worshipped. She has rulership over the auspicious sign of Taurus, which represents earthly comforts and sensuality.
