Gemstones Astrology and Auras
In the previous chapter, we have discussed the mechanism involved behind the working of gemstones and we have seen that a gemstone transmits the energy of a particular planet into your body, and that particular planet gains strength by means of this extra energy. If that planet is a good planet for you, it may not only start giving its positive results more quickly and with more quantum but it may also become stronger to face the bad influence of negative planets. It means that such a positive planet may be in a better position to deal with the afflictions given to it by negative planets either by virtue of conjunction or by virtue of aspect.
Moving on, we will now look into some magical aspects involved behind the working of the gemstones, on scientific basis. It means we will now look into the detailed mechanism through which gemstones are able to do magic for you once they start transmitting the energy of a particular planet into your body. To understand this concept in a better way, let’s try to understand the concept of aura that every person as well as every other entity in this world has around it, in the form of an invisible equation of energy.
From ancient times, Indian spiritual philosophy has been asserting that there is an aura around every person and in the recent years, many scientists have claimed to prove this theory as they have been able to take pictures of the aura around many people. This aura consists of many types of invisible energies and most of the good as well as the bad things happen to us due to the effects of this aura around us. This aura is unique for everyone depending on the good and bad deeds done by them in their past and present lives. It means that the aura of a person is nothing but the sum total of positive and negative energy gained by that person through his good and bad karmas. To learn about this concept in details, kindly read my book ‘Heaven and Hell Within’.
Scientifically, this aura is formed by the energy radiations of particular strengths and particular natures belonging to particular planets, which may be good as well as bad planets for the person whose aura is being studied. As soon as a person is born at some place on the earth; the Constellations, the Signs as well as the planets register their positive or negative energies in different energy centers present inside the body of that person. As these energy centers then start emitting the energy or combination of energies registered and stored in them, an aura is formed around that person, which stays with him for the rest of his life. It means that all these positive or negative, strong or weak, active or passive energies registered in different energy centers of our bodies start interacting with each other and they form a net equation of energy, which is called aura.
This aura keeps changing continuously, depending on different time periods in the life of a native and depending on the good or bad karmas done by that native; as such good or bad karmas keep adding more positive or negative energy to the aura. For instance, positive karmas add positive energy to our auras and negative karmas add negative energy to our auras. All these factors have been discussed in details, in my book ‘Heaven and Hell Within’ and interested readers should read this book to know more about this topic.
As the formation of this aura around us has been explained, let’s try to find out, how this aura works and how it brings all the good as well as bad things to us? To understand this concept in an easier manner, let me once again take the help of an established scientific concept. This time, we are going to look at the formation of volcanic rocks which will help us understand the concept of how this aura around every person works. When a volcano erupts and the lava flows out of it, it gradually starts cooling down due to the atmospheric conditions like temperature etc. and it proceeds towards the formation of volcanic rocks.
As this lava cools down and it goes through the process of changing into rocks, it witnesses some important things going around it at that time, as this lava contains some magnetic minerals which are capable of recording the magnetic properties present in the atmosphere at that time. In simple language, this lava records the orientation and strength of earth’s magnetic field as it settles down to form a volcanic rock and the impressions recorded on it remain within it as a signature for the rest of its life. Layers and layers of lava keep erupting from volcanoes and they keep depositing fresh layers of volcanic rocks over the already formed rocks.
It should be noted that each and every layer of a volcanic rock formed through such process records the orientation and strength of the earth’s magnetic field present at that time. Various scientists have been studying these signatures present inside different layers of some ancient volcanic rocks for various purposes. Some of these rocks are as old as the volcanic rocks found on the north shore of Lake Superior in North America which date back to about 1 billion years.
From these signatures, the researchers have been able to predict the strength and orientation of earth’s magnetic field as well as some other atmospheric conditions at different times in the past. Doesn’t it seem amazing that the signatures recorded at the birth of a volcanic rock remain intact within that rock even after 1 billion years? Well as surprising as it may be, it is an established fact now.
Leaving the volcanic rocks and getting back to astrology, similar concept is involved in the formation and working of the auras around people. The aura once formed around a person keeps its signatures intact and then different layers of changes in planetary energies are deposited on the already formed layers and the process goes on. As the scientists can dig out the older layers of rocks and interpret the signatures, in the same way it is possible to read the different layers of an aura around a person and tell him about the things that happened to him in this life and also tell him about the things he did or the things that happened to him in his past lives; going back to as many of his past lives as many were there.
However, only a spiritually very advanced person is able to do this and the scope of astrology is not this vast as astrology takes a different approach. When a person is born, the resultants of his good or bad karmas are recorded in the form of an aura which according to astrology is the outward expression of the combined impact of good and bad planets which have registered their positive or negative energies at the time of birth of that person. This is called the net energy equation of that person, the horoscope of that person or the aura at the time of birth of that person.
For example, if this native engaged in bad karmas related to the domain of Saturn in his past life, the energy of Saturn will appear negative in a relevant energy center of this native’s body in this life. Similarly, if he has engaged in good karmas related to the domain of Jupiter in his past life, the energy of Jupiter will appear positive in a relevant energy center of this native’s body in this life. This way, all the energies whether positive or negative are registered in this native’s body, they start interacting with each other and the final energy equation comes out in the form of aura.
These energy impressions can be drawn in the form of a horoscope; knowing the birth details of a person and through such horoscope, the impact of good and bad planets at the time of birth of that person can be known. Starting from there, the coming good times or bad times in the life of a person can be predicted as they are nothing but the resultants of the good or bad impressions of the energies of different constellations, signs and planets recorded at the time of birth of a person, the planetary periods, sub periods and the transitory impacts of planets in different signs at different times. All these impressions are made on the basis of good as well as bad karmas done by the native in question, during his past lives as well as in his present life.
Doesn’t this all sound very complicated? Well it is complicated, and that is why the predictions made even by an expert astrologer may not always come true, as there are so many permutations and combinations going on and some of them may not be interpreted correctly or some of them may be missed altogether. Hence there is always a chance of error or exception in astrology like in any other field, though most of the time, an expert astrologer is able to predict the things that happened in the past and the things that are likely to happen in the future, after analyzing such impressions of various positive as well as negative energies, from the horoscope of a native.
Getting back to how the auras around us work; every person continuously receives and emits energy radiations which are the characteristic radiations of different planets. In case of a bad planet, the radiations absorbed and emitted are negative; so the results will be bad. For example, let’s assume that Mars is behaving negatively in someone’s horoscope and it is giving its bad results particularly regarding the marriage of the native in question, where such bad results may include a delayed marriage or disturbed marriage. In this case, every time a marriage proposal is considered for that native, the bad influence of Mars which is constantly being emitted in the form of radiations may affect the mind of the second party adversely and most likely the second party will back out from the marriage proposal; due to various reasons.
Even when the marriage of this native takes place eventually under the impact of some good planets, the bad influence of Mars may continue and it may provide either of the partners with one or the other reason to quarrel with each other. This process may go on until some outer forces are applied to weaken the impact of bad influence generated by Mars for that person. These outer forces are called astrological remedies. In the same way, disturbance in profession, love affairs, legal disputes, fame and defame can be explained.
Going deep into the details of this concept, the negative or positive effects of the aura present around a person puts its signatures on the things touched by that persons, the people known and met by him, and the things or people with whom he interacted through any such means which support energy transfer from this native to those things or people. For example, if Mercury is the planet that rules the house of government in the horoscope of a particular person, it will affect him positively or negatively depending on the good or bad, strong or weak energy of Mercury registered at his time of birth and some other factors like planetary periods and transits.
If Mercury is benefic for this person, this is what may happen to him when he tries to achieve benefits through the house of government. As he fills the documents, say an application form for some contract with some government department, he may be influenced by Mercury to fill up a very suitable application form, and then the good impact and the strength of Mercury is registered with those papers also. This impact may influence the concerned authority positively with the strength of the impact registered, as and when the concerned authority goes through those papers.
Hence in case, another application belonging to another person having the good impact of a planet registered on his papers where such impact is stronger than the impact registered on the papers of the first person is not received, the authority may be convinced by Mercury to assign this contract to the first person and this person may get that contract. On the other hand, if Mercury is working negatively for this person, the negative energy of Mercury will register its impact on papers, it may influence the authority adversely and his application form will most likely be rejected.
I know it seems hard to believe that the impact of a planet can be registered on a paper, but that’s how it is. After all, if an impact can be recorded on a volcanic rock and it can survive for a billion years, why can’t an impact registered on other things like a paper survive? Yes, it can surely survive and it does survive for a very long period of time. This is the reason why people having religious and spiritual knowledge tend to visit the holy places more and more as they know that the impacts of long lasted presences of some very powerful saints or some very good deeds were recorded there, which may still be capable of influencing everyone who visits those places, in a strongly positive way.
That is why the places where an incarnation of the God Almighty or some powerful saint used to stay or meditate or preach are considered most sacred as very powerful signatures of highly positive energy represented by these spiritual powers have been registered there. This energy is highly positive and it has such great strength that it can easily last for thousands of years. Hence the people visiting these places may benefit from this highly positive energy by absorbing some of this energy. This concept of transfer of energy through people and places has been explained in my book ‘Heaven and Hell Within’ and interested readers should read this book.
Getting back to the aura once again, if a planet is positive in nature for a person but weak in strength, it will radiate positive energy with weak strength, which simply means that it may lead to the start of some good things which are not likely to be accomplished as the planet as well as the radiations emitted by the planet are weak and they can’t get the person through, though they can get him started. Therefore in this case, the native in question may initiate efforts to achieve good things at different times in his life; but most of these efforts may not click for him as the planet ruling those fields is weak and not able to give its proper results.
For example, if Sun is placed in the tenth house of a horoscope in the sign of Libra and it positive, it may not do much for the native despite being positive in nature. Tenth house is the house signifying profession and Sun is debilitated in the sign of Libra, which means it becomes very weak when placed in this sign. Hence Sun may try to bless this native with good results related to his profession due to being positive and being placed in the house of profession. However, since the energy of Sun is weak, it may only be able to bless this native with a limited amount of professional success and most of his bigger projects may not materialize, unless another strong and positive planet helps Sun in his horoscope.
In practical language, this native may start various professional ventures from time to time in his life under the impact of this positive but weak energy of Sun. Since it is a weak energy, this native may only follow such ventures for a short duration of time and he may quit them in case of not achieving the desired results in such time. It means that this native may try to achieve a professional goal, he may work hard but he may not have enough patience or endurance to keep working towards such goal if he faces initial failures or problems.
As a result, he may only succeed in those professional projects which are materialized at the earliest and he may quit the ones which may need long and sustained effort. Since most of the bigger things in any spheres of our lives require long and sustained effort, this native may not achieve such things in his profession and he may only be able to achieve professional success of average level. In order to keep working for his professional goal despite facing initial hurdles, positive Sun in his horoscope needs more strength or support of other positive planets. This is where the application of gemstones comes handy.
A Ruby which is the gemstone for Sun is prescribed for this native and as this gemstone is worn by this native, it starts transmitting more energy of Sun into the aura of this native; thereby making Sun stronger and stronger. As Sun gains strength and it is positive in nature, it is now in a position to help this native more when it comes to achieve professional results of higher order. Hence this native may now be able to work on his professional projects for longer periods of time as well as with more intensity. As a result, the level of success achieved by this native may increase and he may be able to achieve good things which he was not able to achieve prior to wearing this gemstone.
Imagine you lack vitamin B in your body for some reason and because of this, you’re not able to do hard physical work for long duration of time in a single go. It means you feel depleted or fatigued shortly after engaging in a physically demanding job and you may not be able to complete such job though you may have the skill to complete it. The solution in this case comes in the form of a supplement for vitamin B. Simply start taking vitamin B supplement, the deficiency will be compensated and you may now be able to work for longer periods of time as you don’t feel fatigued or depleted now.
This is because you were not able to metabolize the energy in your body at a healthy pace due to lack of this vitamin and hence you failed to engage in physically demanding work. However once this deficiency is taken care of and vitamin B is available in abundance, it may help you metabolize more and more energy inside your body and hence it may keep supplying you with continuous flow of physical energy, even when you’re spending this energy at a fast pace by engaging in physically demanding activities. As a result, you’re now able to complete more challenging physical tasks and all this becomes possible, merely by taking a supplement for vitamin B. This is exactly what happens when you wear a gemstone.
The gemstones add more energy to their corresponding planets and they work in each and every way possible to give results to the native wearing them. When a native starts wearing gemstone for a positive planet, at first he may start undergoing many physical and psychological changes within him; due to the addition of extra energy related to the planet represented by the gemstone. Due to these changes, he may keep getting physically more capable and fit, and mentally more stable and sound to take comparatively better decisions and then execute them more properly; depending on the working of such planet in his horoscope. As this starts happening, the overall personality of this native may improve and as a result, the efforts put in by him in various spheres of his life may increase in quality and intensity due to which, he may start seeing better results in those spheres of his life.
As this native wears more gemstones for other good planets in his horoscope and as the strength of a number of good planets for this native increases by wearing the gemstones for them, he may start emitting more and more good radiations with better strength, which may help him. This is how the gemstones work and this is how one can get benefits by wearing the right gemstones with proper weights required.
It is however very important to note that the same mechanism works for the gemstones possessed by the planets which are working negatively for a person. It means that as soon as a native starts wearing the gemstones for the planets which are malefic for him and which are giving him negative effects already, these gemstones may transfer more power to such negative planets and they may start emitting negative radiations more powerfully, thus causing the person more and more harm. Therefore gemstones should not be worn for negative planets and they should only be worn for positive planets.
Imagine you’re allergic to vitamin C and as soon as you receive this vitamin in significant quantities through food and other sources, you start suffering from skin problems, allergies and other such things. The situation is the opposite of what it was in case of vitamin B. The former was beneficial for you whereas the latter is harmful for you. Hence you may benefit when you take supplements of vitamin B but you may only aggravate your problems if you choose to take supplements of vitamin C.
These supplements may increase the quantity of this vitamin in your body and this increased quantity may cause a number of problems with higher intensity; since you’re allergic to this vitamin. In other words, vitamin B is working positively for you and vitamin C is working negatively for you. Therefore, it is wise for you to take supplements for vitamin B in order to benefit from such supplements and it is also wise for you to stay away from increased quantities of vitamin C in your body, in order to avoid getting hurt.
This is exactly how your gemstones work. If you wear gemstones for positive planets, such positive planets gain strength and they start doing good things represented by them in your horoscope; in a stronger way. Hence you benefit more. On the other hand, if you choose to wear gemstones for negative planets, such negative planets gain additional strength and they may start causing problems of higher intensity in the spheres represented by them. Therefore, you should welcome the gemstones for positive planets like vitamin B and you should stay away from gemstones of negative planets like vitamin C.
It should be noted that concluding the positive or negative nature of planet in a horoscope is the most difficult task in astrology; as it takes a number of complex calculations to reach this conclusion. As a result, only an advanced astrologer may be able to do so effective and an average person or an amateur astrologer may not be able to accomplish this task successfully. Hence it is strongly advised that you should never wear gemstones on your own and you should first consult someone who knows a great deal of astrology; so that he may recommend the right gemstones for you.
I’ve personally witnessed many cases where people have got very bad results by wearing the wrong gemstones. It should be noted that just like the supplement of vitamin C can’t change the allergic nature of this vitamin and it can only provide strength to this vitamin in your body; gemstones can’t change the working nature of their corresponding planets in your horoscopes and they can only provide extra strength to these planets. Gemstones can surely supply you with more energy of their corresponding planets but they have no control over how such extra energy will be used.
Therefore, gemstones should only be worn for positive planets in order to supply more strength to these positive planets and they shouldn’t be worn for malefic planets as doing so may increase their negative impact. The negative impact of malefic planets can’t be reduced or controlled by wearing the gemstones for them and it is instead done with the help of specialized astrological remedies like Mantras, Yantras, Poojas and Charities which gradually keep reducing the negativity of these planets by adding more and more specific types of positive energies to your aura. As the negativity of these planets reduces, you start seeing reliefs first and benefits later on.
