|Comments||Today marks the beginning of the ‘Sharadiya navratri’ or the sacred festival of nine nights in the Hindu calendar month of Sharad.
‘ Nav ‘ connotes nine as well as new. Each of the nine forms of Goddess Durga / Shakti – the Divine Feminine infuses a powerful new life, a euphoric spirit and new resilience in the world. It’s a time when her powers manifest in full glory for slaying all that is evil and establishing the might of the Goddess.
The nav durgas have an association with the navagrahas and there fore the navratnas amply figure in this cosmic configuration. Featured today is a fine natural unheated and treatment free Mozambique ruby of 1.19 carats set in 22-karat gold as a Sun talisman ring. The oval shaped African ruby is a deep vibrant reddish pink in color and had excellent clarity and lustre.
Natural ruby or manik gemstone is the Navratna gem of planet Sun or Surya . This intense gem ruby can be worn by individuals with Simha lagna or Leo ascendant in their natal chart. Leo is a sign ruled by Sun.
The first day of the Navratri celebrates the appellation of Durga known as Shailputri literally translated meaning the daughter of the mountains.
वन्दे वांछितलाभाय चंद्रार्धक्रतशेखराम !
Vande Vanchhitalabhay chandrardhakritshekharam !
In Hindu mythology, she is Hemavati the daughter of mountain god Hemvaan. She is depicted holding a trident in one hand and a lotus flower in another. The bull is her ‘ vahana ‘. The color associated with goddess Shailputri is red and the energies are focussed on harmonising the mooladhar chakra . Ruby is a gem that is associated with the mooladhar or root chakra.
On this sacred day, our prayer for every individual is to find secure bearings within oneself. A sense of self contained peace to have you awash – for fears and toxic emotions to dissolve and leave, so all that remains is a new you – a nav jiwan – a new life!
