Safe Gems for Each Ascendant
By Michael Laughrin, Michael@jyotish.ws
This is the ascendant for your Jyotish or Vedic astrology chart, not your Western (tropical) astrology chart. Here are the gems that I consider to be safe, for each ascendant:
Aries ascendant - red coral, pearl and yellow sapphire. The ruby may be used if the red coral is not used. Do not use two red gems at the same time - they create too much pitta (hot) energy.
Taurus ascendant - diamond, emerald and maybe blue sapphire.
Gemini ascendant - emerald and diamond.
Cancer ascendant - pearl, red coral and yellow sapphire.
Leo ascendant - ruby and yellow sapphire; or red coral and yellow sapphire.
Virgo ascendant - emerald and diamond.
Libra ascendant - diamond, emerald, and maybe blue sapphire.
Scorpio ascendant - red coral, pearl and yellow sapphire. Sometimes a ruby may also be used.
Sagittarius ascendant - yellow sapphire and ruby; or yellow sapphire and red coral.
Capricorn ascendant - diamond and emerald.
Aquarius ascendant - diamond and emerald.
Pisces ascendant - yellow sapphire, pearl and red coral.
