Everyone's Lucky Gem----Pukhraj

Look around and we find every second person wearing a Pukhraj--the yellow Sapphire. The Pukhraj is the gem for Jupiter/Guru. It has great powers, reason being that  Jupiter is a strong natural benefic planet. It effects and has great influence on our lives. Jupiter is the provider of money, prosperity, name and fame,property, children and knowledge . Jupiter is the planet of wishes and desire fulfillment. We all know that Jupiter is also known as Guru and therefore Pukhraj is called the Gem of Guru....the Lord

Another important fact of Jupiter is that it is symbolic of the father. It is also symbolic of  husband for the females.In fact most of the females wear a Pukraj(Yellow Sapphire) for the well being and prosperity of their husbands. If a Pukhraj is worn in the right hand  by a female it is for the good of her  husband and if worn in the left hand of a female it is for her own good.

Jupiter being a natural benefic  and it is believed that the Gem for Jupiter---Pukhraj can be worn by one and all. So much so that many people believe that Pukhraj is a noble Gem and  it can  never do harm and so can be worn  by anyone, anytime. Such a line of thought is incorrect and in fact can bring lot of harm.

Gems and Astrology have rules and methods just like science and maths. Where you need to do add up things you cannot subtract and vice verse.To get the right answer/output in any process you need to follow the instructions and the method and the same  is also true of Astrology.

MUST READ: To believe in Astrology or not!

In Astrology a natural benefic can become malefic if its placement happens to be in a negative house.This rule also applies to Jupiter.  This means that if Jupiter gets placed in 6/8/12th  house it would be a malefic planet. In such a situation it would not be advisable to wear Pukhraj. 6th house is the house of illness,debts and loans, 8th house is the house of death and 12th house is the house of imprisonment, hospital and expenses. Nobody would want to strengthen effects like illness,debt,imprisonment,hospitalisation etc. And if Jupiter happens to be in any of these three houses and Pukhraj is worn it will amplify these very effects. It cannot reduce the ill effects of its placement. It is bound to increase the malefic effects to the wearer of Pukhraj.

It would also be good to avoid wearing Pukhraj if Jupiter is lord of 6th/8th/12th house.

Another very important fact about Pukhraj is that it should be worn during the "Shukala Paksha". This means  Pukhraj should be worn when the Moon is growing (waxing) .This would happen after the "Amavasya" after which we have the new Moon. This also means that Pukhraj should not be worn after the "Poornima"because then the Moon starts to decrease ( waning) and that is called the "Krishna Paksha". Gems like diamond can be worn in any Paksha but Pukhraj should  be worn during the Shukala Paksha only otherwise it gives negative effects. Inspite of everything being right and correct things would be going wrong.

Gems should be worn after proper consultation with an astrologer to avoid  their adverse effects.

To believe or not to believe

Most of the people do not wish to believe in Astrology.They try to poah-fah it and call it rubbish and supersition. Their main argument against Astrology is that so many people are born at the smae time all over the world so they would have the same fate, Why is it not so?The question is logical.
Let us examine the facts of this question. The foremost is how correct is this question. How many children are really born at the same time world wide. And the second question is why these people born at the same time do not have the same profession/education etc.

As per  Unicef estimates there are 255 births per minute globally. And 34 births every minute in India.So as per law of probabilty the chance of two births at the same time and at  same place is NIL.
Even twins cannot be born at the same time. Ask any doctor, who will tell that at least there will be a gap of four minutes between the birth of twins and that will change many of the astrology charts (even if the birth chart remains same. This is the main reason why twins may look alike,may have similar habits  but their life paths maybe different.)

Well,even if children/people are born at the same time,around the world they will not be ASTROLOGICALLY similiar. Astrologically similair implies tohave the same birth chart and thus the other various charts such as the Navamsha Chart, Hora chart etc which are used for Astrology readings. Coming back to the question why the birth charts are not the same.  This is because the latitutdes and longitude degrees of a birth place effect the planets and their placement which form the birth chart.We all know that there are different time zones around the world and even if we makeprovision for the difference in the time zones the places will not have same planet placements.

We all see the Sun and the Moon and even they are not similairly placed world wide,  Elaboration further,for a person born in India at a particular time the Sun is placed in Aries but at the same time for another person born in USA the Sun cannot be in Aries for the simple reason that both the locations have diferent latitudes and longitudes. This is the main reason that the birth charts are made with the Time and Place of birth. Even within the same country latitudes and longitudes vary. India spreads across  almost 8 to 37 degrees north latitude and almost 68 to 97 longitude. Thus the person born at same time within India will not have the same birth chart and thus will not have same destiny or even the same life path.

Astrology has been termed supersition and myth and never treated as a science whereas it is a most logical stream of study. It involves lot of calculations and facts. Every person and even a class I student  knows that the Sun rises very early in Assam as compared to Delhi and same is true of Sunset. So if the Sun positions are different in the two regions at the same time then the position of  all the other planets should also be different and since planets and their positions make a birth chart it is bound to be different.

It is very easy to discredit a system of study without knowing the facts.We first need to understand the system or a method. A science or a system which has been carried forward over centuries cannot be all rubbish. Our great Astrologers have repeatedly emphasised that Astrology is a science(indeed a difficult science to understand as it has many calculations ).It is no doubt  that it has been misused by the so called fortune tellers who are around to make quick  money. Astrology is a pure science .It holds secrets of future and fate. It is a map of our fate and destiny.
