Gemstones for Libra Ascendant
Gemstones are determined on the basis of the sign rising at the time of birth and planetary placement in the 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 eleventh house and rules over elder brother, financial gains and injuries. A strong Sun indicates the likelihood of much gain from the government. Mother is long lived and the elder brother rises in status.
Weak Sun with weak Jupiter indicates no elder brother and stomach troubles to spouse. Sun should always be strengthened as it rules over a vital area of life.
Red Ruby 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. There is a remarkable progress in the areas of financial gains, health and fame. Problems related to heart, eyes and bones begin to abate. Digestion becomes better and hyper acidity, flatulence and other wind related diseases slowly disappear. Sun represents the elder brother so his affairs also show an upward trend.
Moon becomes the lord of the tenth house and rules over social status and professional excellence. Fame and benefits from state are also evaluated from Moon. If Moon is placed in the forth house in Capricorn it boosts the tenth house by aspect and takes one to high status ruling powers, and honor. Moon should be strengthened by wearing her representative gem Pearl.
The minimum weight of a pearl 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.
Pearl ring should be worn on a Monday falling with in five days of Purnima or the full Moon day. Wash the ring with milk-water mixture and pat it dry. 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 happiness and prosperity. Wealth will begin to increase as will the social status. 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 lord of the seventh and second houses. Strong Mars gives wealth, long living wife, logical speech and manual dexterity. He gains from in-laws and is particularly happy in his youth. Weak Mars gives losses through bad advice and bad judgment in business. Life partner is short lived. The mode of death of the partner will be determined by planets afflicting Mars. Mars is double Marak here and if placed weak in sixth, eighth or twelfth house will give much physical trouble in his Dasha and Bhukti.
Mars is represented by Blood red Coral. 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 will make a significant improvement in financial gains by increasing income. Problems connected to muscles, like back ache and shoulder pains will begin to get better . The most welcome change will be shown in the affairs of the life partner. Their health improves and so does their happiness.
Mercury becomes the lord of the ninth and twelfth houses. Both relate to spirituality and freedom from the life of death and rebirth. Mercury represents lord Vishnu. When Mercury becomes the lord of the ninth house, he becomes saturated with morality and spirituality. If such a Mercury is linked to Lagna/Lagna lord, he makes the individual spiritually inclined, self sacrificing and unselfish. If Rahu or Ketu is in the ninth house, Sun or Moon occupies Lagna, a strong Mercury brings sudden gains.
The best way to strengthen Mercury is through Emerald, which is his representative stone. 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. A lamp should be lit and burning incense should be offered to the Yantra.
ॐ ब्रां ब्रीं ब्रौं सः बुधये नमः OM BRAM BREEM BROM SAHA BUDHYE NAMAH.
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. Any existing skin conditions will be slowly cured. Spirituality will blossom and make one inclined to charity.
Even though Jupiter becomes the lord of the two evil houses, the third and the sixth, he gives favorable results. Bhavarth Ratnakar clearly states that the third and sixth lord Jupiter proves to be a Yog Karak planet. It could be due to the fact that Jupiter is the Karak for wealth and the two houses he owns are both Upchay houses or houses of accrual. He is the only planet capable of it.
Jupiter being the lord of house of friends indicates that the friends will be of good moral standard. The person will develop contacts with very spiritual people. If Jupiter is strong one will establish peace with the enemies. Strengthened Jupiter will also promote longevity, health and wealth. Jupiter strengthened by wearing Yellow Sapphire which is his representative gemstone. Its minimum suggested weight is five Carats. Bigger is better. 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
This would energize the ring and make it capable of giving its best results. With in forty days, there will be a distinct change in the circumstances. Wealth and prosperity will begin to show an upward trend and health will improve. There will be a leaning towards spirituality and religion. If one is trying to make peace with an enemy, this ring will be quite helpful. There will be benefits from the state as well.
Venus owns the first and eighth houses. Both are indicators of longevity. A strong Venus bestows a long life. Weak Venus makes one short lived. The planet/s influencing Venus denotes the mode of death. For example if Venus, first and eighth houses are under the influence of Mars the death is due to a fire arm, accident or fire. The sub period of Venus does not give bad results as Venus is the Lagna Lord. Venus is the birth stone for Libra Ascendant and it is extremely important to fortify her as she gives health wealth, status and all round prosperity.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.

The desire to have a luxury car moves forward towards fulfillment. Ditto for real estate. Health improves and longevity increases. Life partner’s prosperity also increases.
Saturn owns the fourth and fifth houses and becomes a Yoga Karaka. Strong Saturn will confer much wealth, property, position, promotion and honor. One is devoted to the general public and is fond of amusements. Weak Saturn gives sorrow at the hands of the son. It also makes a person live far away from place of birth and have mediocre intelligence. Unless there is a beneficial aspect on Saturn the mother’s speech will be harsh. Rahu’s influence makes for a selfish person.
It becomes extremely important to strengthen Saturn. 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 below.
