Gemstone and our universe
According to the Hindu/Indian astrology the movement of the planets, the sun and the moon determines the happening in a person's life. The time, date and place of birth of an individual are calculated to know the life history of that person. The astrologer can find out what kind of person you are, what kind of physical ailments you have, your family history and except the time of your death he can tell you the answers to all your questions on your future. It's a science and not any magical power that a stranger can guess the many happenings in your past without you telling them anything. There is a science known as gemology which compliments astrology as it's believed that each gemstone is related to all the planets in the galaxy and there movement into an individual life circle makes or breaks things. For example Amethyst has the power to control the effects of a planet which will cause problems for you, then to wear this stone of a particular size as a ring or a bracelet can protect you from the ill effects of the planetary movement. An astrologer and a gemologist will determine the right stone for you which will truly be your birthstone and wearing it will protect you always. They will even tell you the right size and what kind of setting (set in gold jewelry or silver jewelry) the ring should have and on which finger to be worn etc.

The birthstone is not magical, it will only compliment and inspire your efforts and hardships. By getting yourself a birthstone after much consultation you will be able to let go of your fears and concentrate fulltime on your task moving forward with a strong belief that the stone is going to protect me from falling down. This mindset itself is going to prove positive for you and you will be grateful that you decided to go for a birthstone.
