Are you wearing your Gemstone in the correct hand /the correct finger and some other secrets of sacred planetary Gemology. Gemstoneuniverse.com
There are three things that have motivated me in writing this article.
1) I have received thousands of mails from Gem Lovers and those interested in planetary gemology after I wrote the article Do Gemstones Work – No They Don’t for 90% of the People. I take this opportunity to thank each one of you through this medium for your appreciation, since sending individual mails to each one of you would be quite difficult. Among that multitude of Messages there were several messages that asked questions like I am wearing Hessonite in Middle finger of left hand. Is it correct or should it be the right hand and many others on the same lines. Even though this question sounds innocuous-it isn’t and correct implementation of Gemstone therapy is also dependent on wearing the Gemstone in the correct hand and fingers.
2) A mail message received yesterday from an existing Gemstoneuniverse.com patron that says,
None of the 7 points in the checklist to avoid a failure in gem therapy and get good results from your gem, mentioned certain gems must go with certain fingers. Kindly clarify if the gems could be worn in any finger and still will achieve the beneficial planetary effect.
3) Meeting with an individual who came to consult me yesterday evening and who was wearing a Blue Sapphire in the ring finger of the right hand.
Note: The ring finger represents the Sun which in turn represents the Law. Blue Sapphire is the gemstone of Saturn and is generally worn in the middle finger. Incidentally this Gentleman and his family have been involved in a messy litigation after he started wearing the Blue Sapphire in the ring finger.
In Which Hand should I be wearing my Gemstones?
In Hinduism, Ardhanari or Ardhanarishvara (Sanskrit: अर्धनारीश्वर, Ardhanārīśvara), is an androgynous deity composed of Shiva and his consort Shakti, representing the synthesis of masculine and feminine energies. The Ardhanari form also illustrates how the female principle of God, Shakti, is inseparable from the male principle of God, Shiva. Ardhanari in iconography is depicted as half-male and half-female, split down the middle. The masculine part is the right side and the feminine part is the left side. Full expression of both these halves leads to complete self realization.
In General, all shastras- sacred texts have the unanimous view that Gents should wear the Gemstones in the right hand and Ladies should wear the Gemstones in the left hand. This is the thumb rule that gives good results.
Exceptions, Sure, Yes!
Gents who use the left hand primarily as their working hand, for signing documents etc. should wear the Gemstones in the left hand.
What are the correct fingers for wearing Gemstones?
The planets are clearing marked on one’s palm and have specific and exact positions. Gemstones should be worn in the correct fingers to get good results.
No results are better than bad results( Such as the case of the Gentleman wearing the Blue Sapphire in the ring finger.
Table indicating the correct fingers for wearing Gemstones as per sacred texts.!
The internet is full of copy and paste jobs regarding this. This table below is the definitive guide.
|Emerald||Mercury||Little/Ring( especially if a potent Budh-Aditya Yoga is occurring in the horoscope)|
|Hessonite||Rahu||Middle/Little in some cases|
|Cat’s Eye||Ketu||Middle/ Ring in some cases|
Exceptions to the above rules
The crowning of sacred planetary Gemology lies in its ability to give tangible results. Certain implementations and Knowledge like wearing a red Coral in the middle finger during challenging Saturn periods or wearing a White coral and Natural Pearl for a debilitated Moon or changing of hand due to exceptional combinations created by retrograde planets or wearing mutually inimical gemstones due to unique planetary positions is very special knowledge capable of creating exceptional breakthroughs and cannot be found in the regular texts. These are transferred from a Guru to a deserving Shishya/ Disciple. Yes, these exceptions exist but only to the tune of 1% and such recommendations are available to the masters.
