Continuing with the same theory of recommending gemstones on the basis of numerology, many astrologers practicing in numerology believe that gemstones can be worn according to the date of birth of a person. Such astrologers state that same gemstones are suitable to all the people born on a particular day and the suitability of such gemstones is calculated from the date which falls on the day of birth of a native. For example, if a native is born on 3, 12, 21 or 30 of a month, it is believed by these astrologers that Yellow Sapphire is a suitable gemstone for these people as Jupiter is associated with number 3 according to numerology and the sum total of all the above mentioned number comes out as 3 like 2 plus 1 make 3 when added.
Hence these astrologers recommend all their clients to wear Yellow Sapphire, who are born on any of the above mentioned dates of any month. Similarly, these astrologers recommend Blue Sapphire as a suitable or lucky gemstone to the people who are born on 8, 17 or 26 of any month as Blue Sapphire is the gemstone for Saturn according to Vedic astrology and Saturn is related to number 8 according to numerology. Similarly, other gemstones are suggested to different natives depending on their dates of birth and this way, all the natives born on one particular date of every month end up having the same lucky or suitable gemstones for them.
Another group of astrologers recommending gemstones on the basis of numerology considers all the numbers present in the complete date of birth of a native, adds them up and the final number is considered for recommending gemstones to the client based on the planetary lord of that number. For example, if someone’s date of birth is 15 November 1978, then the numbers 15, 11 and 1978 will be added like 1 + 5 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 9 + 7 + 8 which gives us a resultant number 33 on addition which further gives us 6 upon addition. Hence 6 is the number which is considered as the lucky number of the native and accordingly the gemstone associated with the planetary lord of this number which is Venus is suggested to the client which means a Diamond or White Sapphire is suggested to the client in such case.
Some astrologers practicing in numerology combine both these theories and recommend the gemstones to their clients, which belong to the lord of numbers obtained by adding only the date of birth of the native as well as the gemstones which belong to the lord of numbers obtained by adding the day, month and year of birth of the clients. In these cases, the natives born on the same day of a month and the natives having the same date of birth will have exactly same gemstones suitable for them. It means that the all the natives born on a particular day will have same gemstones suitable for them which belong to the planetary lord of the number that represents that day.
This group of astrologers or numerologists believes that the gemstone which belongs to the lord of Day of Birth or lord of complete date of birth of a native is always suitable for a native and hence these astrologers recommend their clients to wear gemstones belonging to the lords of Days of Birth or the ones belonging to the lords of complete dates of birth in their respective horoscopes. But in actual practice, such gemstones prescribed for Lords of day of birth or Dates of Birth of the natives, can give positive effects to some natives whereas such gemstones can give bad or very bad effects to some other natives.
I have been told by many of my clients that they have suffered serious problems in various spheres of their lives after wearing a gemstone suggested by someone, for the lord of day of birth or Date of Birth in their horoscope. Looking at some scientific and astrological facts related to this theory, this theory states that about 400,000 people born during a particular period of 1 day can wear the same gemstone which belongs to the lord of day of birth or Date of Birth in their horoscopes, which is the same for all such natives. It clearly suggests that this theory and belief of recommending and wearing gemstones on the basis of Date of Birth is flawed and it is not an accurate theory.
It should be noted that the basic and most important rule for wearing any particular gemstone is that the planet for which a gemstone is being worn, should be working positively in the horoscope of the native. Combining the results of this rule with the results of the above mentioned theory of wearing gemstones on the basis of day of birth and Date of Birth, this conclusion can be easily derived that the lord of day of birth and lord of Date of Birth in a horoscope is always benefic for the native as the gemstone for this planet is believed to be always suitable for the native and only the gemstones belonging to benefic planets are suitable for a native.
This means that a particular planet continues to be benefic for all the natives born during a particular day as all 400,000 natives (approximately) born during this day will have the same day of birth or date of birth and hence they will have the same lord of day of birth or Date of Birth. The working nature of all planets continuously keeps changing from benefic to malefic and from malefic to benefic and a planet can completely change from benefic to malefic or from malefic to benefic in a matter of 30 minutes.
Hence a planet can’t keep being benefic for all the natives born during a period of one day as it can change its nature many times during this period of one day. All the planets keep changing their strength, working nature and many other aspects related to them with every passing minute which makes them behave differently with every passing minute and accordingly all the individuals are different from each other as there is a continuous change in the horoscopes due to continuous change in the characteristics of various planets.
Hence the practice of recommending and wearing gemstones on the basis of such theories of numerology is flawed and accordingly, this should be avoided as such types of misconceptions can cause serious problems for some natives. The primary and the most important rule for wearing gemstones is that the planet related to the gemstone worn by a native should be benefic in his horoscope or in other words, gemstones should always be worn for benefic planets and they should almost never be worn for malefic planets.
Vedic astrology lays many guidelines for deciding the benefic or malefic nature of a planet in a horoscope and accordingly a good astrologer should analyze the horoscope of his client with great care in order to decide which planets are benefic for the native and then the gemstones for such planets should only be recommended.
