Aura-Soma, Gemstones and Vedic Astrology

aura soma bottlesVedic Astrology recommends the use of Gemstones

Colour is light, waves of energy at specific lengths. Colour and all living beings radiate energy. Colour vibration can be used without harmful side effects to treat many physical and emotional disorders.

In the Vedic sciences it is thought that the planets transmit energy to us on earth. The planets are said to have effects on our body, mind and subtle consciousness.  In Vedic astrology, gemstones can be used as a remedy to counterbalance adverse planetary effects.

Gemstones receive their potency from the cosmic energies of various planets and are similar to a lightning rod

They create a protective field around the body, regulating which cosmic forces are absorbed by the body. Gemstones are very powerful and wearing the wrong gem for your birth chart can have harmful effect, so it’s important to have a qualified astrologer recommend the appropriate stone to you.

They are worn touching the skin and are at least two carats in size.

Aura-Soma works on similar principles

It offers us colours which balance us. In the range are over 100 jewel like bottles, protective pomanders and quintessences for the aura.  The difference is that Aura-Soma is entirely helpful and can have no negative side effects.

Each planet has a colour, and a related gemstone. Look at your birth chart and see if you are attracted to the colours that link to your ascendant ruler, your Sun and Moon signs. (Bear in mind that the Vedic astrology uses the sidereal zodiac, so deduct 23 degrees from the position of each planet).

It is worth noting that the birthstones set out by the jewelry industry bear no relation to astrology. The list was complied arbitrarily and is purely a commercial system.

Signs, ruling planet and gemstones are:-

Aries and Scorpio: Mars, Red coral. Secondary stones are red garnet, red zircon, red tourmaline.

Taurus and Libra: Venus, Diamond. Secondary stones are clear quartz, turquoise and white coral.
