Hessonite Stone Benefits | Gomed Astrological Benefits | Rahu Benefits

In Vedic Jyotish astrology, Rahu is not a planet, but rather a celestial point, mathematically computed where the Moon's path crosses the Sun's, called the ascending node of the Moon. The cosmic color of Rahu is ultraviolet and belongs to the Air element. As the ultraviolet color is beyond our capacity of see it, so Rahu is beyond our understanding in how it influences human destiny. It is a malefic entity per se, yet it can become a fruit bearing and positive one if well positioned in your chart. The easier & effortless way to enhance Rahu's positivity is through the wearing of a hessonite garnet stone.
