    Cats eye Impact on personality-Find the Island of Calm

    Find the Island of Calm with Cat’s-eye Chrysoberyl

    Detailed article exploring the impact of Cats Eye

    As mysterious as its presiding deity Ketu, the cat’s eye chrysoberyl gemstone is a mystery unto itself. Just as one can never fully understand certain phenomena as well as creations of nature, the cat’s eye chrysoberyl is certainly one of them.

    The Cats Eye has a mystical Influence Just like Its ruling Planet Ketu

    Also known as the vaidurya, it is a gemstone that displays the optical phenomenon of Chatoyancy - opening and closing movement like the cat’s eye when moved under a light source.

    The most prized ones being those that display a clear milk and honey effect and display two or more chatoyant bands.

    So what can a person expect to achieve by way of personal changes upon wearing cat’s eye chrysoberyl for astrological reasons?

    Here are some of the benefits or transformations that one can expect :

    - Feeling grounded:The energies of Ketu, the planet South Node of the Moon are always likened to that of the dervish - flighty, restless and forever oriented towards movement. An individual experiencing a deep sense of disconnection with self and surroundings always is on the lookout for ‘something’ or ‘something else’ that would give him/ her the elusive comfort or the sense of calm!

    The Cats eye gives a sense of stability and calm

    Wearing a natural cat's-eye chrysoberyl can put an end to this search that keeps a person highly ungrounded and detached from reality. One may suddenly find it easier to sit down in one place, accept things what they are, and to find a relative state of contentment.

    - Better emotional health: The axis of Rahu-Ketu has forever been known as one of raag-dwesha (desire - disconnection) - polar opposites. Wearing the cat’s eye chrysoberyl can ease out the sense of hurt, hunger and longing often accompanied with bitterness. One may see that after wearing this gemstone, deep-seated fears and traumas - even those of the level of cellular memory, start dissolving away - paving way for a more fulfilled sense of living; adding more life to life.

    Deep Seated Fears and Traumas are dissolved by the Cats eye Gemstone

    - Rags to Riches/ Transformation stories: Ketu is a planet of sudden events - things that transpire without any forewarning or in an unexpected fashion. Sudden personal transformation, sudden fortunate events, sudden uncovering of favorable information etc., are some of the things that can happen. It's dasha spells the season of the unexpected. However, the enjoyment that was to have come through such developments may not be there as Ketu’s energies are intrinsically detached from material life and more tuned into spiritual discoveries and upliftment.


    Even though Sudden Windfalls may happen after wearing this Gem the person gets more inclined to spiritually look inwards


    -Better physical health: Influence of mysterious Ketu energies can bring about physical ailments and mental states that are hard to diagnose or deal with. The unusual, strange as well as distressing and anxiety causing situations may prevail. Wearing a cat’s eye chrysoberyl can bring much relief in such cases. It restores calm and fosters better health where a person is quiet prone to in anxiety or sudden injuries.

    - Buffer for social life: Ketu is a natural vichched karaka or a cause of breakaways. It's periods are often marked by a sense of disillusionment with close relationships, especially signified by the house, it is posited in.

    Wearing the cat’s eye chrysoberyl allows a relatively good sense to prevail despite distressing conditions where the disenchantment has crept in. One may feel what one feels, but it should not disrupt one from carrying out Dharma or what needs to be done. Cat’s eye chrysoberyl does exactly that - prevents disruption in life by anchoring the mind with sound spiritual focus. One may even discover a personal brand of spirituality and a radical way of communing with the Almighty.

    Note: The cat’s eye chrysoberyl is a fairly strong and fast acting gemstone and should be worn after proper birth chart analysis and gaining suitable gem recommendation
