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.

But to do all this you should have a belief in the science of
astrology and if you think I can be successful and rich by just
wearing the birthstone and not doing anything then you are wrong.
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.
