Select the right gem and please the planets

 Bal Krishna Singh

 Wear the right gem when the planets act tough. Choosing the right gem is the 20 carat question. Astrologers are of the view that when a planet is posited either in 6 or 8 or 12th house it becomes weak and provides malefic effects.   Planets posited in 6, 8 or 12, may  yield malefic results, but it is not correct to say, that the same planet has become weak.  There is another misunderstanding in the minds of the astrologers that by providing gems to a malefic planet,  benefic results will follow.  First one should know the difference between the weak and the malefic,   The planet will be weak only, if it is posited in the sign of debilitation or when the planet is in the sign which is detrimental to that sign that means the 7th to the own sign of the planet.  A planet will never be weak, when it is either posited in 6th, 8th or 12th house of the chart.  These houses are called the evil houses or Dusthana.

To provide strength and to propitiate the planets are two separate things and it should be understood clearly before prescribing remedial

Do not recommend gems according to major dasa or bhukti lords. Read the chart carefully, and see  which  planets  cause the suffering, whether they are weak or malefic (not by nature but by ownership and occupation).

In case of weak planets, Gems are to be provided.  When the planets are malefic we should not provide the Gem for that planet.  In such case, propitiation of the planets are needed.
