Gemstones for Gemini Ascendant
Gemstones are determined on the basis of the sign rising at the time of birth and planetary placements in the birth chart. In the following article I have examined each planet on the basis of his lordship of a house and discussed the pros and cons of wearing the gem connected to that planet.
Sun becomes the lord of the third house and a complete representative of leadership quality, élan, self-confidence, strength of arms and shoulders and younger siblings. Sun represents the leader and should he be placed in the third house, the person will be a born leader of men.
If Sun is placed in the tenth or eleventh house, the native becomes very ambitious. A strong Sun gives a good looking brother. If Jupiter aspects Sun, the younger brother is bold by nature and will eventually gain through the state. It should be remembered that Sun in the third house gives very favorable results. Third house is the eighth from the eighth and In addition to all that has been written above also represents longevity. A strong Sun will give a long life.
Generally speaking it is not a very good idea to strengthen the third lord as that will also cause poverty. In this case although Sun would be exalted in the eleventh house, this exaltation will actually restrict the free flow of finances and not be as effective if Sun was the ruler of Kendra or Trikon houses. However if the comprehensive analysis of the chart warrants the strengthening of the third lord, it can be done by wearing a Red Ruby which is the representative stone of Sun. The minimum weight that is required for a red Ruby to become effective is five Carats. Bigger is always better. This should be set in a gold ring, and worn on the ring finger of the right hand. The setting of the gemstone should be such that it touches the skin and trickle charges the body. Such a ring will bring about freedom from all types of health issues connected to stomach. It would bring increased favors from the government. All children related matters will get a significant boost. A Ruby ring will also bring about an increase in good fortune.
This ring should be worn on a Sunday falling within five days of Purnima or the full Moon day. The ring should be washed in Milk and water mixture and then patted dry. It should be then dipped in Turmeric powder and kept aside.
On a silver or stainless steel plate make the Surya Yantra as given below with a mixture of Roli and water. After it dries, place the Ruby ring on the Yantra and offer it incense and a lighted lamp. Chant the Surya Mantra 108 times and then wear the ring on the ring finger of the right hand.
ॐ ह्रां ह्रीं ह्रौं सः सूर्याय नमः OM HRAAM HREEM HROM SAHA SURYAYE NAMAH
This procedure mentioned above is called Pran Pratishtha or infusing the ring with energy and should be done every two years. The favorable results of the Ruby become apparent with in the first forty days. Digestion improves, health becomes better, social status improves, and there is a distinct gain in self confidence. Any work or project which is snarled up in the bureaucracy becomes tangle free and moves forward.
Moon becomes the lord of the second house and represents face, speech, food, eyesight, wealth, domestic happiness, and ruling powers. Strength of Moon is extremely desirable and if she is conjunct with sun, associated with malefics like Saturn and Rahu or placed in Scorpio immediate steps should be taken to increase her power.
Moon is strengthened by wearing a good quality pearl in a silver ring. The minimum weight for astrological purposes is five Carats, bigger is always better. The pearl must always be set in a silver ring and worn on the little finger of the right hand. The setting of the Pearl should allow it to touch the finger. Wash the ring with milk-water mixture and pat it dry.
Pearl ring should be worn on a Monday falling with in five days of Purnima or the full Moon day. On a silver or stainless steel plate make the Chandra Yantra given below with a mixture of Roli and a little water. After it dries, place the Pearl ring on the Yantra and offer it incense and a lighted lamp.
Then chant the Moon Mantra given below 108 times and wear the ring.
ॐ श्रां श्रीं श्रौं सः चन्द्रमसे नमः OM SHRAM SHREEM SHROM SAHA CHANDRA MASE NAMAH.
With in forty days of wearing the ring it will bring about mental tranquility, peace and prosperity. Wealth will begin to increase as will the social status. For those who stutter or lisp, a Pearl worn in conjunction with an Emerald will slowly remove the problem. For those whose mother is battling bad health, Pearl is a boon. If Moon is associated with Saturn or Rahu in any form or manner, it causes a great deal of mental anguish. In cases of severe affliction it takes away the mother altogether. A pearl is the surest way to counter these.
Mars becomes the sixth and eleventh lord. Mars is inherently violent by nature. His lord ship of the sixth house of violence makes him even more violent. A further measure of violence is added by virtue of his lord ship of the eleventh house (sixth from sixth). If by any chance Ketu occupies the sixth or eleventh house, Mars becomes extremely violent. The extent to which the Lagna Lord, Moon and fourth lords as well as Lagna and the fourth house are under the influence of this Mars will determine how violent the native is.
If Mars aspects a house, house lord and the Karak for that house, the body part connected to that house will become injured or will be surgically operated upon. The other characteristics of that house will also be injured. Mars placed in the Lagna and aspecting Moon as well will make a person prone to violence.
Since Aries falls in the eleventh house, the elder brother’s every body part is depicted by Aries. If a Bhava (house) and Bhava lord are both afflicted due to any reason, the elder brother will have disease in that part. Mars should therefore be fortified either not at all or after due and diligent deliberation; even then it will be better to wear a white Coral instead of a red one.
The minimum weight of the Coral should be five Carats though bigger is always better. It is set in a silver ring and worn on the ring finger of the right hand. The Coral ring should be washed with milk-water mixture and then worn on a Tuesday falling with in five days of Purnima or the full Moon day. On such a Tuesday, make the following Yantra on a silver or stainless steel plate with Roli and water mixture. Allow it to dry and then place the ring on the Yantra. Offer incense and a lighted lamp and chant the Mars Mantra given below 108 times.
ॐ क्रां क्रीं क्रौं सः भौमाय नमः OM KRAM KREEM KROM SAHA BHOMAYE NAMAH.
This energizes the Coral ring and it becomes fully capable of giving the desired results. With in forty days it shall make a significant improvement in financial gains by increasing income. Violence and aggression will also improve somewhat.
Mercury rules over the Ascendant and the fourth house. The ascendant rules over health, stature, head, wealth, fame, and longevity. The fourth house represents mother, real estate, happiness, vehicles, chest, lungs etc. Mercury therefore becomes an extremely important planet. Mercury is boosted by wearing a green Emerald set in a gold ring. It is worn on the little finger of the right hand.
Mars becomes the lord of the sixth and eleventh and so becomes saturated with violence. If Mars is placed in Lagna and aspects Moon, the mind of the person becomes very violent. Mars alone in the Lagna indicates a head injury of a serious nature, more so if Mercury is also involved. If Ketu joins Mars, the injury could result into death. If these conditions are seen in the Horoscope of a child he should be immediately made to wear a large Emerald in a gold pendant.
An Emerald weighing at least five carats set in a gold ring and worn on the little finger of the right hand will prove beneficial. The gem should touch the finger. The ring should be worn for the first time on a Wednesday falling with in five days of the full Moon day.
Wash the ring with Milk-water mixture and pat it dry. On a silver or stainless steel platter make the following Yantra with Roli-water mixture and chant the Mercury Mantra given below 108 times.
ॐ ब्रां ब्रीं ब्रौं सः बुधये नमः OM BRAM BREEM BROM SAHA BUDHYE NAMAH.
A lamp should be lit and burning incense should be offered to the Yantra. A properly energized Emerald ring, with in forty days shall bring about a palpable relief from intestinal diseases and strengthen the kidney functions. Lungs will become stronger and problems like Asthma, emphysema etc. will begin to lessen. Self confidence will show a distinct enhancement. Problems connected to vehicles, mother’s health and real estate will begin to abate. Any existing skin conditions will be slowly cured. The best result will be a sure growth in happiness and contentment.
Jupiter becomes the lord of the seventh and tenth houses and governs marriage, the spouse, power of reproductive system, semen, sex acts, business, and addictions. The tenth house rules over the state and state power. Exalted status and fame also fall under its domain.
In a female chart Jupiter becomes a double representative of husband being the lord of seventh house and karaka for husband. Any malefic influence on Jupiter will be very telling on husband. The strength or weakness of Jupiter will decide the health and affluence of the native. A weak Jupiter placed in the second, sixth or twelfth house causes serious disease in his Dasha Bhukti. In a male chart a strong Jupiter gives ruling power and favor from the government.
Yellow Sapphire represents Jupiter and its minimum suggested weight is five Carats. It is mounted on a gold ring and worn on the index finger of the right hand. The best day to wear this gemstone is a Thursday falling with in five days of the full Moon Day. The ring should be washed with milk-water mixture, patted dry and then dipped in powdered turmeric. Make a Yantra with Roli-water mixture on a silver or stainless steel plate and let it dry. Then put the ring on the Yantra and offer a lighted lamp and burning incense. Chant the Jupiter Mantra given below 108 times and wear the ring on the index finger.
ॐ ग्रां ग्रीं ग्रौं सः गुरवे नमः OM GRAM GREEM GROM SAHA GURVE NAMAH
With in forty days of wearing the ring, yellow Sapphire shall bring about lessening of problems connected to marriage. It shall also increase favors from the bureaucracy. All matters pertaining to the state shall move forwards without a hitch. It is a must wear gem for those desiring political power. Strengthening of Jupiter will also boost wealth, good fortune and professional status.
Venus becomes the lord of the fifth and twelfth houses. Since the Mool Trikon Rashi falls in the fifth house, he primarily gives the results of the fifth house. A strong Venus bestows a lot of wealth. Venus falling in the seventh makes the native oversexed as both the fifth and the twelfth are linked to sex. As the lord of the house of children, strong Venus gives many daughters. A weak Venus causes longevity problems for the son as he becomes the lord of the Lagna as well the eighth house of the son. The influences on the fifth, the twelfth house and Venus will determine the cause of death of son. Since Saturn is a strong Yoga Karaka for Libra ascendant, a strong Saturn ensures the steady rise of native’s son. As is evident, a strong Venus is highly desirable for Gemini Ascendant.
Diamond represents Venus and the minimum required weight of a diamond for astrological purpose is half Carat. Diamonds weighing less than that will not give any results. Two quarter Carat diamonds will not give the same results as a single half Carat one. Diamond is best set in a Platinum ring though white gold and even silver are also used. The diamond must touch the finger. The ring is worn on the middle finger of the right hand. A Friday falling with in five days of the full Moon day is ideal for wearing the diamond ring. Wash the ring with milk-water mixture and pat it dry. Make the following Yantra with Roli-water in a silver or stainless steel plate and let it dry. Then place the ring on the Yantra and offer burning incense and a lighted lamp. Chant the Venus Mantra 108 times and then wear the ring.
ॐ द्रां द्रीं द्रौं सः शुक्राय नमः OM DRAM DREEM DROM SAHA SHUKRAYE NAMAH
With in forty days of wearing a diamond ring will bring about a measurable change in the areas of luxury and enjoyment of life. It will ensure success in romance and sexual fulfillment will steadily increase. Good fortune and wealth begin to show an upward trend. The affairs of children also show a steady improvement.
Saturn rules over the eighth and ninth houses. The Mool Trikon Rashi Aquarius, falls in the ninth so on the whole he gives good results, but he does not give excellent results because of eighth lordship. Strong Saturn gives a long life firstly as the eighth lord and secondly as significator of longevity. Strengthening Saturn will boost the life span, health and wealth of father. It will also greatly help the children as it rules the fourth and the fifth house for them. An added bonus is the increase in spirituality and a desire to attain self realization. If most of the planets are in Dharma and Moksh houses, strong Saturn can give significantly favorable results in the realm of attaining Moksh.
Saturn is represented by Neelam or Blue Sapphire. It is worn in a Platinum, white gold or silver ring on the middle finger of the right hand. The ring is worn on a Saturday falling within five days of the full Moon day. Wash the ring with milk-water mixture and pat it dry. On a silver or stainless steel plate make the Yantra given on the left. Place the ring on the Yantra and then chant the Saturn Mantra 108 times. Offer burning incense and a lighted lamp to the Yantra.
ॐ प्रां प्रीं प्रौं सः शनैश्चराय नमः OM PRAM PREEM PROM SAHA SHANAISH-CHA-RAYE NAMAHA
Within forty days of wearing a Blue Sapphire ring the affairs of one’ children and father will begin to show an upward movement. Longevity will improve an one’s good fortune will steadily begin to favor him.
