People wear gemstones not merely to adorn themselves. Gemstones are prescribed by astrologers as a remedy for adverse planetary effects. Many people wear gems based on their name and zodiac sign, but this is not the proper way to do it. There are 9 planets or Navagrahas. The Sun is one of them and is, in fact, considered to be the king of the planets. The gemstone associated with the Sun is the Ruby/Manik. When the Sun is weak in your horoscope, you can wear a ruby.
Rubies have always been associated with wealth, power, royalty, love, and passion. It is also said that they have a protective ability. Rubies were much loved by many ancient kings and queens. They symbolized authority and luxury. Those who wear rubies can supposedly attain a life of luxury.
Ivan, the Terrible of Russia, claimed that rubies are good for one’s memory, heart, and brain. In the 13th century, a medicine for curing liver problems included powdered ruby. In the 15th and 16th centuries, people believed that rubies could neutralize poison and boost youthfulness and vitality when rubbed on the skin.
Rubies evoked love, passion, power, and energy. So, it is the most emotionally powerful gemstone. The reason for this is its blood-red color. It is why the stone is believed to enhance one’s energy and vigor. It can also make one bold and fearless, according to some.
To wear a gemstone, knowing one’s zodiac sign is not enough. The horoscope has to be analyzed in detail by an expert astrologer, and then, based on his suggestion, the gemstone should be worn at the proper time. One must not wear the gem of a low or inauspicious planet. If one’s auspicious planet is weak, it can cause some negative effects. To reduce them, you can wear a gemstone.
In astrology, there are around 84 gemstones and semi-precious stones. But only 9 of them are called Navaratnas. All the others are sub-stones. The most important among the Navaratnas is Ruby/Manik. Ruby is the Sun’s stone and should be worn if you have a weak Sun in your horoscope.
