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 include hatha yoga postures such as Surya Namaskar or the Sun worship round of exercises. Wearing orange and warm colors 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.
