Can I wear Blue Sapphire in the Ring Finger?
Recently the Gemstoneuniverse team received an e mail that stated, “Hi I am undergoing a very bad Mars Dasha. Everything has gone bad since the dasha started. I am facing health problems, divorce and having problems in my job. I recently consulted an expert Astrologer who diagnosed that I am having these problems because of Mars graha. He had advised me to wear a 5.25 ratti Blue Sapphire in the ring finger to control Mars and every Tuesday offer Boondi Laddu ( A type of Indian Sweetmeat) to Hanuman Ji. Since Blue Sapphire is a very strong gemstone I just wanted to be double sure in wearing in ring finger and hence seeking your expert advice. My birth date( Birth data and Name withheld for Privacy).
Every Month we receive some e mails on the similar lines has stated above. Moving on there are several things that are plainly wrong here. First and foremost if the Astrologer was an expert as this gentleman has stated in this e mail he would have never recommended a Gemstone in Ratti. The ratti is an obscure and outdated measure of weight that has no mention in any standardized sacred text.
Extra resources for above:
The second thing is there is no Astrology involved in the recommendation. If you are going through a harmful Mars dasha the first thing you want to do is:
1) Pacify Mars by donation, mantra chanting, donation, Yagya etc.
2) Fortify the ascendant lord in your chart.
Even if we go by the principle of cutting fire by fire- using Gemstones of the planet who is biggest enemy of the harmful planetary period you are undergoing, this recommendation is incorrect. The ring finger primarily belong to Surya –the Sun and if we use the principle of cutting fire by fire then one would wear a Diamond in the ring finger if
1) Venus was well posited and is a Yoga Karaka in the chart.
2) If you were undergoing the period of Sun in your chart.
Yes, Saturn and Mars are enemies but wearing a Blue Sapphire in the ring finger in plainly incorrect as per astrology. You must understand that Gemstones work by influencing the impact of light and color on our body and directly influence our body’s biorhythms.
There is no astrological rule that allows you to wear the Blue Sapphire in the ring finger and if you were to do that the first thing that would happen is that you will get physically sick or have some disease or malady because your biorhythm will get affected adversely.
You can read more about the principle of cutting fire by fire in the Vedic Gem Recommendation report.
What happens to people who may buy Blue Sapphire as a Jewellery piece and wear it in the ring finger?
Most of the stones used in fashion/ cosmetic jewellery are just stones. They are not Gemstones let alone Jyotish Gemstones and are powerless to have any kind of an impact at all and they can be worn as an one off thing. Secondly most of the Gemstones used in the Jewellery are covered from the back with the pavilion of the Gemstone not touching the skin. In such a case there is no astrological impact. If you are wearing a high Quality Gemstone that qualifies to be a true Jyotish Gemstone it is worthwhile to double check with an expert Astro Gemologist as to which finger would be best suited to do such a thing.
