Astrology and Gemstones

Updated on October 22, 2011

From the years of previous decades people of India and other parts of the world have been in the belief of using precious and semi-precious stones to cure some diseases and mental disorders and also to change and improve their life conditions. Astrologers are telling that planets of our solar system represent different gemstones according to their properties. They are also telling that radiant forces from every planet will make particular effect to the persons with respect to their Zodiac sign and position of planets in their horoscope. If the effect is desirable one, there will be nothing to worry. But, when something go wrong with our living conditions, it is advised by the astrologers that the affected persons have to wear the ring or ornaments made up of gemstones which suits their zodiac sign and the position of the planets in their horoscope.

Most of the astrologers are advising the beliefers to wear at least a small ring made up of the suitable gemstones. Experts are saying when a person is having the body touch with a suitable gemstone in the form of ring, he need not bother about negative power or tribulations from the planets. In other words wearing of those things act as a guard or guide to lead a peaceful life. The planets which are giving tribulations to the mankind because of their unfavorable positions in a horoscope are called as malefic planets. When people wear the rings or ornaments made of gemstones which are associated with those malefic planets, they can easily come out of tribulations because of the divine power of the gemstones.

Though this kind of belief seems nonsense and ridiculous, the economical prices of gemstones stimulate some people to have a trial of making some favorable changes in their life by wearing gemstones which suit their astrological conditions. The people who are not interested in wearing the rings and ornaments simply keep the gemstones in their personal locker or on the other safer place from where they can have a frequent visible contact of these gemstones.
