Gemstones to Bring You Luck, Success and Wealth in Life

Navratna in astrology
Gemstones are considered to be beneficial in mitigating the ill effects of planets and negative planetary placements in an individual’s horoscope. Nowadays, they are also increasingly being used as an astrological remedy to provide additional support to the efforts made to improve health, gain wealth, and achieve success.
Each planet has one precious gemstone assigned to it. So, there are nine gemstones for the nine planets. These gemstones are referred to as the Navratnas. It is believed that by wearing the gemstone for a particular planet one can strengthen its impact if it’s weak but positive and mitigate the effect if it is negative or placed unfavorably in the horoscope.

How do Gemstones Work?

For each gemstone, Vedic astrology has prescribed a purification process, a mantra, an auspicious time, day, metal, and the hand and finger in which the gemstone should be worn. The weight of the gemstone to be worn also differs for each person and according to the resolution being sought. Vedic astrology also prescribes an energizing and cleaning process that needs to be followed and a mantra that should be recited daily to enhance the effect of the gemstone.
