Gemstones are beyond any doubt one of the most powerful devices used for Remedies in Astrology.Their use can be confirmed with the help of Ancient Histories of so many Civilizations and Countries. Kings, Queens and Rich people use to wear Gemstones to get good benefits and cast away Evils. And to the present day, many of the rich and famous people are wearing them.
Some house of the Horoscope have good and bad planets or we can say positive and negative planets while some houses of the Horoscope may be completely empty. Depending upon the nature of these energies the planets function or work as good or bad planets for a particular native. Again depending upon the degree and placement of a particular planet in a particular energy center, the planet may be strong or weak, clean or afflicted. This is where Gemstones come into play.
If a planet has registered positive energy at the time of the birth of a native, it becomes a good planet for that particular native and an expert Astrologer can read it from his Horoscope. But if due to its placement, affliction or some other concept, it has become weak, it would simply mean that the planet will remain good for the native but will not give its proper results as it is weak.
