Astral Remedies

To provide strength to the weak birth (natal) planets, the divine science of astrology recommends use of gemstones as part of jyotish/astral remedies for the favorable planets. The gems as part of jyotish/astral remedies represent the rays of light particular to different planets. We can use gemstones for raising the power of planets besides wearing them for ornamental purposes.

Gemstone Guidelines

Gems as part of jyotish/astral remedies can be worn as a pendant or in ring settings. If you prefer a ring, it is best to use the following as a guideline:


Ruby on left ring finger;

Pearl on left little finger;

Red Coral on left/right ring finger;

Emerald on right little finger;

Yellow Sapphire on right index finger;

Diamond on right ring finger;

Blue Sapphire on left middle finger.


The setting of the gemstone ring or pendant should have an open back so that the gemstone touches ones skin or almost touches ones skin. The weight recommended for all premium gemstones is 1 carat or more.


Also, certain planets rule different metals so it is best to get a setting that is beneficial for your chart. If you do not know what planets are beneficial to your chart, please contact me for a complimentary gemstone report.


The Sun rules Copper and Gold

The Moon rules Silver

Mars rules Copper

Mercury rules Brass

Jupiter rules Gold

Venus rules Silver and Aluminum

Saturn rules Iron




I only recommend getting gemstones through Astrological Gem. They are a highly trusted and very reputable company. They are always happy to provide any information to you if you have questions. Gemstones have a powerful influence in our lives and it is best to get an auspicious time to “install” the gemstone upon purchasing. Tiffany is amazing and if you let her know I referred you she will take extra special care of you!
