The pratikool-anukool theory making rounds and giving certificates to each and all on payment of some money does not hold ground, as you will read in the following lines.
- a) Should we recommend gemstones for functional malefic planets or functional benefic planets only? or Both?
- b) Should we recommend gemstones for planets placed in 6th, 8th and 12th Houses? In which conditions?
Normally not. But essentially if these planets placed in 6th, 8th or 12th are placed in nakshatras who are owners of the wealth-giving houses or desire fulfilments (2nd and 11th). (Which is what one requires in Life, so let’s be honest here).
- c) Should we use Divisional charts for recommending gemstones instead of Rashi chart? For example Dashamsha for Career?
- d) Should we recommend precious and semi-precious gemstones and leave the decision to the user to decide which one to wear?
- e) Should we recommend gemstone only for the lords of Lagna, 5th and 9th? If so, why not others, if they are benefic and placed well?
The 9th if a badhaksthana for a Fixed Lagna must not be recommended. One must not suggest Lagna Lord Gem if it is placed in nakshatra of the planet owning 8th or 12th. Because then the Lagna Lord will be actually giving the results of these negative houses. For a person who is in service the Gemstone for the 5th lord should not be recommended because then he may begin facing problems in his job, since the job is signified by the 6th house and by wearing the Gemstone for the 5th Lord one is actually strengthening the 12th house from the 6th.
But for a person looking for good health, he must be suggested a Gemstone for the 5th Lord, because the 5th signifies Cure.
So there are Gemstones to be recommended for a specific purpose too depending on the current problem. For instance one not getting a job if badly looking for one, may be suggested a Gemstone for the planet signifying the 6th Lord, but eventually after acquiring one, has to remove the same, or else would also increase the ill health propensities in his nativity.
Even the Lord of the 8th can give superb results if well placed, and even the Lord of the Lagna can give bad results, so there is nothing like some mandatory rule to be followed in this matter.
- f) Which gemstones do you recommend for each planet? Example: Red Ruby and Red Garnet for Sun. Emerald, Peridot, Green Jade for Mercury.
The Original Gemstones. Ruby and Emerald. If the person cannot afford this, then let him keep the objects of the planets in his Shirt Pocket, like piece of Haldi, or some sugar for the Moon etc.
Gemstone recommending is an intricate science but now has become a like a Duplicate Rolex watch in hands of one and all.
At times Gems have to recommended for a temporary time, keeping the end (Result) in mind and once that is achieved, the Gem must be removed.
At times if one is not able to marry then one has to be suggested Gemstone for Planet signifying 2nd and 7th but would you allow the person to wear this, till he becomes old, when this same Gemstone would tend to strengthen to the maraka propensities for the native ?
The there are other problems to contend with too. For a newly married couple a green Emerald will not be favourable. Why? Because it will reduce the sexual desires. Remember the basics? Mercury is a Hermaphrodite Planet.Then there are people who at the drop of the hat suggest The Pearl or the Moonstone immediately. Now if the Sun is the Lord of the Kundli or having Lordship of an important house in the Horoscope, would it make sense to wear a Pearl? Or else if one is born on an Amavasya or a Poornima one should certainly note what would be the effects of wearing a Pearl before jumping to suggest this. There are other factors like waning Moon and the waxing Moon the implications of which must be understood well before suggesting this Gem. Instead of bringing stability to mind, on the contrary, it may cause depressions too. And by the way nobody in Real Life is so unstable that we need to suggest Gems for such frivolous matters which most astrologers do. "Your mind will become calm. You will be able to make better decisions. You will have peace of mind". This is logicless talking. Because the other problems which may affect in a horde, would not be foreseen or one may not have the foresight to observe these.
