Saturn (Shani)


NOTE: The above Saturn Ring set with a flawless corn-flower Blue Sapphire was designed and created by Richard S. Brown of Astral Gemstone Talismans

   Saturn is a powerful planet whose position in one's horoscope strongly influences one's work and employment, as well as obstacles one must overcome in order to succeed in one's chosen field. Saturn is associated with the color blue, darkness, obstinacy, gambling, and chronic diseases.  It governs aging and death, yoga practice, foreign travel, hunters and thieves.  While malevolent by nature, when properly placed or balanced Saturn can also induce great virtues, such as compassion, charity, longevity, meditative insight, and positive public influence.

   When Saturn is exalted one will be long-lived, charitable, lavish, proficient and an affectionate mate. But if Saturn is weak in a person's horoscope, one becomes vulnerable to headaches, neuralgia, and other disorders of the nervous system, as well as epilepsy,   stupidity, and fainting.   VIOLET is the cosmic color transmitted by blue sapphires and other natural blue to violet gems. Violet color waves are related to Saturn, the planet which governs suffering and poverty. Saturn also rules the entire nervous system. Therefore, most diseases of the nerves, such as neuroses and nervous tension may be caused by an afflicted Saturn. Saturn being the slowest planet also causes diseases of a chronic nature and can cause delays if ill-disposed. Saturn Astral Talismans are known to help strengthen a person's  nervous system. They also repel envy from others, avert demoniac influences, provide protection against dangers during travel, make one more serious and far-sighted, and induce mental tranquility.

   Saturn transmits its cosmic energy through blue sapphires, blue spinels, tanzanite, indicolite, iolite, amethyst and other natural blue to violet gems with transparent clarity.  Only flawless gems possess the capacity to properly transmit positive astral energy from Saturn.

   Saturn Astral Talismans should first be worn on Saturday two hours and forty minutes before sunset after reciting the following mantra 23 times :

"Aum sham shanaiscaraya namah"
