According to Indian Vedic tradition, the balance of energy inside the human body is essential for his/her success and wellness and this is dependent on the position of nine planets at the time of one’s birth. These nine planets include the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu. For different people, gemstones have different meanings regards to their horoscope. And to gain the energy from these nine planets, there are nine major planetary gems. For example, natural pearl for the Moon, red coral for the Mars, ruby for the Sun, blue sapphire for the Saturn, etc. Gemstones are worn to balance and optimize the energies for well-being. Anyone can buy gemstones online or from the market. Wearing the original gemstone after consulting an astrologer would only benefit you. Be careful, wearing the wrong gemstone can cause severe side effects.
Gemstones are considered as a powerful tool to give strength to weak planets. Different gemstones have different relevance. Like a diamond, a gem for the Venus is famous for its dazzling effect and is the hardest precious stone on the Earth. It is a birthstone for April and represents love and money. Sapphire or white/safed pukhraj is a birthstone for September and it also has blue color due to iron and titanium traces. They are for financial well-being, happiness, confidence, and wisdom. Ruby is deep red which gives it a royal look. It is a birthstone for the month of July. Emerald being green symbolizes growth and prosperity. It is related to Mercury and is a birthstone for May.
