Precious Stones

The Basis of Categorization

The physical properties are very well defined primarily by their distinct appearance and secondarily by their physical properties as established by scientific theories. However, besides them, there is another distinction of astrological significance. Astrology out of its own established principles and theories has defined the varied significance that different stones hold. While defining them, one significant aspect that has also been stated is of nature of their impact.

The Basis of Categorization

It is quite precisely stated that different gemstones hold different nature of impact. Also, one same stone can create different nature of impact on different people. Both these aspects highly rely upon the kind of association that a stone shares with different astrological planets. In astrology, there are a total of nine astrological planets- Sun, Moon, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Mercury, Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu. Rahu and Ketu are shadow planets as they don’t hold any physical existence, while Sun which is otherwise considered as a star is believed as an astrological planet of influence in astrology.

The way a stone is creating an impact on a person primarily depends on the planetary positions and combinations as formed at the time of the birth of a person and as depicted in one’s horoscope. A different planetary position and combination as formed, holds an ability to create an altogether different influence on one’s life on the whole. While it is not necessary to have all the planets in favor, it is also not necessary to have all of them in against. Most of the time, it is a blend of both. That is the reason why it is not always about bad times only, but a mix of good times and bad times. However, everyone wishes to have more of good times, and none of bad times. Astrology ensures that it is attainable, with the help of stones.

The Nine Precious Stones

Stones are believed to be comprised of certain divine powers, with which they hold an ability to influence the impact as created out of a certain planetary position and combination. The category of precious stones has been identified to be in particularly and exclusively influential for these nine astrological planets. All the remaining stones are considered under the category of ‘Uparatna’. In case, where one wishes to create a positive influence the impact of any of these nine astrological planets, one can effectively do so by choosing its associated precious stone. Also, in order to nullify the malefic influence of any of these planets, the concerned stone can be used with effectiveness. Take a look.

Besides the association which these stones hold with different astrological planets, there is another association which they have with different Zodiac Signs. If a person belonging to a particular Zodiac Sign chooses to wear the related stone, then the positive impact and benefits as generated out of it are incomparable to the impacts generated out of any other stone. Another important thing to understand is that no single stone holds an ability ward off all sorts of problems of life. Most of the time, astrologers strive to get the most appropriate combination of stones which can derive the desired impacts in extreme and utmost sense.

Like Genna, I didn't realize gem stones were closely related to astrology, my engagement ring is a cornflower sapphire, we're in our 25th year of marriage so maybe there's something in it.

Almost any newspaper or asrtglooy website. There are thousands every day. My favorite are from The Onion. Here are some:Aries Mar 21 Apr 19You're finally entering the period of life in which the things that you want to do greatly outnumber the things that you will eventually do.Taurus Apr 20 May 20The way to respond to a stupid question is to pretend not to hear it, which is why your friends all seem to have hearing problems.Gemini May 21 Jun 21An elite squad of international assassins will target you in an effort to make sure that the secrets behind your famous chili stay secret.Cancer Jun 22 Jul 22Everyone has one of those uncles who knows how to use a rifle, add a deck to the house, and catch a trout—everyone, that is, except for your nephew.Leo Jul 23 Aug 22After everyone has spoken, there will be an awkward, 90-second silence, at which point people will agree that you've been eulogized enough.Virgo Aug 23 Sep 22The debate on whether we have a shame- or a guilt-based society is complicated when, due to some odd circumstances, you kill a man by ******* your pants.Libra Sep 23 Oct 23Once again, you'll be surprised by how many of your troubles can be traced back to that smelly old couch.Scorpio Oct 24 Nov 21Though it's noble that you became an accounts adjuster to make the world a better place, it remains unclear exactly how that's going to happen.
