While our birth chart has an influence on all aspects of our life, it also helps us to find ways to avoid or soften the possible negative influences of the stars. For example, each sign has a related gemstone. Wearing those stones can help us balance energy influences and achieve better harmony with our birth chart.

So, we have described the relation between gemstones and astrological signs. But what is the mechanism behind that relation? Well, the thing is that, according to yoga, there are seven subtle energy centers in our body, which are also called chakras. Each gemstone has specific influence on these energy centers. But on the other hand, what our birth chart describes are in fact strong and weak points of our chakras. By wearing gems that have a positive effect on our weak chakras, we can improve our condition and maybe even avoid some difficult situations in life. But much better results can be achieved, if one not only passively wears gems but also actively practices yoga. Sahaja Yoga discovered by the Indian yoga teacher Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi allows one to achieve a great effect without putting in a big effort as it used to be in the traditional yoga systems. There is no need to go to the Himalayas or hide in a remote cave. One can now do yoga as a part of one’s daily life and still achieve great results. You can try Sahaja Yoga online or visit one of the free meditation centers that are available almost in every country.
