Why to Wear or Donate Gems?
In Vaidik remedies there are certain remedies which makes a planet strong and some makes it weak, while some remedies pacify it, for example, wearing gemstones on right hands increases the power whereas on left hand decreases the power. Same is with the opposite stones. Whereas Mantra pacify the planet and always gives good results.
General Guidelines for Wearing Gems
Case - In your case, Jupiter
gem (most of the times) should not be prescribed because though Jupiter
rules 5th House, but it does rule the 8th House also. That is why his
placement is important. You should not wear diamond also for it is malefic
for your Ascendant. I only suggest Sun or Mars gem for you.
For Venus things missing, you
can try pacifying both Venus and his dispositor (Budh); and strengthen
your Mars and Sun. If any of them joins or aspects Venus, you will see
good changes. It is also important to see if Venus is Neechaa Bhang or
A gemstone may be worn to fortify a benefic planet that is weak in the natal chart, at any time, or it may be worn when its planetary period, such as in Vinshottaree Dashaa or sub-Dashaa (a method of lunar progression) is operational. In the case of slower moving planets, if they are weak in transit while one is experiencing their Dashaa at an important phase in life, gemstones often help. Since, in these situations, the planet is the source of the effect or the motivation factor, we would like it to be as strong as it is possible. If the planet is weak and malefic, then we would leave it untouched. Doesn't this make a weak malefic sound like a Kaarmik windfall?
Selecting a gemstone is a
complex, tricky and time-consuming process. Even many practicing
astrologers get discouraged, start cutting corners and eventually lose
faith in the efficacy of using gems as remedies. Some also start adopting
less effective alternative approaches such as using secondary and tertiary
stones, all of which exercises eventually lead to disillusionment and
crushed expectations. Not only must the gemstone conform to the physical
and chemical specifications (purity, specific gravity etc.), it must be of
the right size as well. And, it must be worn and tested by the individual
for a few days before accepting it. This requires a very cooperative,
understanding and conscientious jeweler.
--Diamond should be avoided using with Ruby.
