How do Astrological (Jyotish) Gemstones Work?

By Tiffany April Raines, Certified Gemstone Advisor of Astrological Gem International

Jyotish (Vedic Astrology) is the Sanskrit word for “science of light.” This ancient science is founded on the understanding that all matter in the universe is comprised, in its purest form, of light and energetic frequency. Over the course of thousands of years, the proper use of Jyotish has proven itself to be an accurate method of determining how the celestial bodies in our system signify, represent, and even influence various areas of life here on earth. Jyotish gemstones are an effective way to strengthen the energy of the planets whose significations we wish to enhance.

The way the planets were aligned and positioned when we were first born as individuals on this planet is what determines the configuration of our astrological birth chart. That’s the chart we use to interpret our weaknesses, our strengthens, and the remedies we can employ to improve the quality of our lives.

In other words, if a very important planet is weak in your Jyotish chart, there are specific actions you can take to strengthen its influence upon your physiology. This results in direct improvements in your day to day experience of life. The primary remedy that we work with is the use of top-quality untreated astrological gems.

Each planet in our solar system emits a very specific energetic frequency.  This can be measured by sound frequency, and also by color frequency. Miraculously, Planet Earth has produced certain minerals that actually resonate to the same color and vibrational frequencies as those emitted by the planets.

These minerals take hundreds of millions of years to form deep within the earth, so they are rich with planetary energy. Specimens that are flawless in clarity and rich with color are both exceedingly rare and exceedingly powerful when properly faceted and worn on the body. We are fortunate enough to specialize in the acquisition and the sale of these gems, which time and time again, have been proven to improve the lives of the people who wear them.

The idea is to wear a gemstone that vibrates to the same frequency as the most auspicious and beneficial planets in your birth chart.  This translates to you receiving the most auspicious and beneficial results possible for astrology when you wear these gemstones.

We believe that the makeup of the universe, at the grand macrocosm level, is in direct relationship with our most intricate cellular makeup at a microcosm level. Everything is deeply connected, energetically, no matter how big or small and no matter how visible or invisible. This metaphysical relationship likely extends outward infinitely into the universe, but we believe that the influences of the large celestial bodies closest to the Earth produce the most noticeable influence on human life and consciousness.

We specialize in carrying the finest quality astrological gemstones available, as it’s our experience that the purity of the gem will dramatically effect the astrological results obtained from wearing it.  You can read more about what makes a gemstone Jyotish quality here.
