What If You Are Already Wearing a Ruby And It is Not Working
Here is a very interesting question that what if you are already wearing a Ruby and it is not working. There can be following probable reasons:
1. Your Ruby is not authentic.
2. You have worn it without consulting an expert astrologer and it actually doesn't suits you.
3. And the most interesting reason is that if you are already wearing a Ruby and meanwhile the Eastern part of your house or workplace is not well arranged according to the principles of Vastu then your Ruby may not give proper results. East is the direction of Sun. If there is some sort of garbage, dust or impurity in this direction then your Ruby will not give proper results. If there is a toilet in the East direction then if will significantly weaken the attributes of Sun in your life and persona.Presence of Black or blue colour in this direction is also not good.
On the one side you are trying to strengthen your Sun by wearing a Ruby and on the other side you are weakening your sun by keeping the East direction unclean. Therefore it will give partial results or no results at all.
If this is your case then keep the East direction clean and light. And if it is not possible due to some architectural reasons, say there is a toilet in this direction, then you will have to first strengthen the attributes of Sun in the East direction of your building. This you can do by decorating this direction with red colour objects, placing a red bulb or placing a Sun Plate on the Eastern wall of your building. After applying few such remedies, your Ruby will start giving its results.
