Vedic astrology or Jyotish is the "Science of Light", an
ancient astrological discipline that originated 3,000 years ago during the Vedic civilization. The "Rishis",
the "seers" or high priests of
the Vedas, cognized through transcendental visions, the connection between the celestial bodies
of our solar system and the human body.
The motion of the planets and their positions in
relation to each other, acts upon us throughout our lifetime, just as the lunar phases push
and pull the oceans and the seas.
According to the Vedic science of astrology, the planets and all the stars in our
universe represent certain energies, and, in fact,
do emit magnetic and electric fields.
Vedic astrology held that each planet gives out its own, cosmic color,
generating a particular energy and influence that propagates throughout the
cosmos. The transmission of these colored rays through space, accompanied by the
energy-giving properties of heat, magnetism and electricity, have an influence
on the life of every living creature.
"Yat Pinde Tat Brahmande"
"We, as microcosm, are just a
reflection of the outer macrocosm."
The location of the various planets
during a person's birth, can be mapped scientifically through an astrological horoscope. According to it, certain planets will be well positioned, some will be unfavorable
and some will
give mixed results. Every person's life is therefore, the result of
this cosmic design, this planetary arrangement seen in the sky at the time of
our birth, which originates
and result by activities and actions
during our previous lives.
Vedic astrology opines that karma is not eternal and can be changed. There are several ways to
balance or enhance our planetary karma. Its
methods include meditation (the greatest balancing method),
physical postures (yoga), medicine (Ayurveda), wearing of gemstones, color
therapy, prayers, rituals, herbs,
food, architecture (Sthapatya Veda).
Vedic astrology deals with
seven visible planets and two invisible ones: the
MOON, MARS, MERCURY, JUPITER, VENUS,
SATURN, along with the two lunar nodes,
RAHU (ascending lunar node) and
KETU (descending lunar node). These nodes are the two intersecting
points of the solar and lunar planes as seen from the earth.
Nine astrological gemstones are associated with these
planets. Associated with the Sun is the
the Moon is the
with Mars is the
CORAL, with Mercury the
with Jupiter is the
Venus is the
with Saturn the
and with Ketu is the
EYE CHRYSOBERYL. Associated with the nine planets are also the days of the
week, different parts of the human body and different metals.
Someone might think
that this correlation between the planets and its correspondent gems has no scientific
validation and it is perhaps the result of blind superstition and religious belief.
However, there is a scientific truth behind Planetary Gemology.
studies on this matter has shown that the cosmic color spectrums emanated by the different
planets, are similar to the color spectrums of the correspondent gems.
The cosmic energy of
the planet is reflected on the human body through the gem and creates an effect by
absorption and reflection of the rays and vibrations. The gem acts as a filter and
produces good or evil effect, depending on the need of the body.
Like the crystals used in radio technology are the fundamental constituents of
transmitting, receiving and transforming invisible energy into sound, thus the
crystalline structure of gemstones attract and condense the cosmic, planetary
energies that rain from sky to earth and transform them for use by the human
By keeping the proper gemstones in touch with the body, profound and significant
changes can take place overtime.
To conclude, now more than any other period in
history, where the knowledge and technology of natural gemstones has reached a peak, a
divine, cognitive science is again made available to anyone to fulfill mankinds dream of
free from problems and negativity.
Natural, very effective and magnificent gemstones that
demand no will power or effort whatsoever, are available now to transform our lives
