Let’s take a look at the application of Ruby for different ascendants
As a general rule of astrology a benefic planet when weak i.e debilitated or in bad houses which are 6th, 8th & 12th. Should be made strong via remedies.
These points should be kept in mind all the time and for the planet, Sun one needs to consider the following points also.
- Debilitated Sun in navamsha.
- Sun is afflicted with malefic like Mars, Rahu, Ketu & Saturn.
Note: This natural malefic role of planets tends to change as per ascendant hence a holistic approach is needed here.
3. Close conjunction of Rahu with planet Sun.
For detailed information check affliction over planets and houses check my article, on how to identify the afflicted.
ARIES ASCENDANT: Here planet Sun becomes the 5th house lord which is a trine house and in terms of strength 5th house is next to the 9th house only.
Ruby Gemstone should be worn here without any inhibitions.
For Aries ascendant natives, the relation of the planet Sun with Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Moon, or even with Saturn, results in Rajyoga.
If you have Aries ascendant and Sun is weak or afflicted or involved in Rajyoga then Ruby can be worn without any problem.
TAURUS ASCENDANT: Here planet Sun becomes lord of the 4th house which is a house of domestic peace, luxury, house, mother, and represents the throne also.
Ruby should be worn in the following conditions only.
1. If Sun is severely afflicted by malefics.
2. If Sun is in close conjunction with Rahu.
3. If Sun is involved with Mercury or Saturn.
Ruby should be avoided in Sun is in ascendant or 7th house.
Ruby applicability for Tauras ascendant is not easy to Judge and one should take the help of astrology who is well versed with Gemstone application.
GEMINI ASCENDANT: Here Sun is lord of 3rd and becomes a malefic planet for Gemini ascendant.
Gemstone Ruby should be avoided here and the birth chart should be analyzed thoroughly before making any recommendations.
Use of Ruby unless required can make natives indulge in unethical behavior & wrongdoings.
CANCER ASCENDANT: For Cancer ascendant planet Sun becomes lord of 2nd house which makes Sun a maraka planet for here.
Now obviously use of maraka Gemstone is not advised unless there is a severe affliction of Rahu-Ketu on the planet Sun.
Sun when involved with planet Venus, Mars or Jupiter creates a string dhan yoga but still, Ruby should be avoided.
LEO ASCENDANT: Here Sun is lord of the ascendant and becomes the most benefic planet for them. As a general rule of astrology, the ascendant lord should be strong, so that good use of Rajyoga can be made and it also helps in countering negative yogas in the horoscope.
Planet Sun when involved with Mars, Jupiter or Venus creates a Rajyoga, and Ruby should be adopted here all the time.
VIRGO ASCENDANT: Here Sun becomes lord of the 12th house and in normal conditions gives malefic results.
Let me tell you the 12th house is a most interesting house in astrology and has the capability to make one either a king or a thief.
As a general rule, Ruby Gemstone should be avoided here and shouldn’t be used since it can affect material progress.
Those who aspire abroad should use Ruby with Venus Gemstone i.e white topaz or white sapphire.
Ruby should also be worn if the 12th house is occupied by malefic especially Mars and same time if Sun is weak or afflicted.
LIBRA ASCENDANT: Here Sun becomes lord of the eleventh house and is malefic for them.
Ruby Gemstone should be avoided here and should not be used on assumption that Sun will bring wealth to their life.
As per Parashar 11th house is a malefic house and when involved with other malefic houses lord, it can create havoc in life.
Blue sapphire should be used here all throughout life.
SCORPIO ASCENDANT: For Scorpio ascendant Sun becomes lord of the 10th house.
Sun rules over career and social status for Scorpio ascendants.
The use of Ruby Gemstone becomes tricky here and requires a holistic approach.
Ruby should be worn only when Sun is involved with Mars, Moon, Jupiter, or especially with Moon.
Though the use of Ruby Gemstone when Mars is with the Sun can cause some side effects like aggression, overconfidence & disease related to pitta dosha.
SAGITTARIUS ASCENDANT: For Sagittarius ascendant Sun is lord of the 9th house and becomes the most benefic planet.
The use of Ruby Gemstone is highly advised for your whole life.
Sun when involved with Jupiter & Mars creates a grand Rajyoga and other Gemstones like Yellow Sapphire and Ruby can also be used here.
CAPRICORN ASCENDANT: For Capricorn ascendant Sun becomes lord of the 8th house and as per parashari rule Sun is a neutral planet here.
Now Sun if involved with Saturn, Mercury and Venus then Ruby should be worn.
Sun when involved with malefic like Mars, Rahu & Ketu then Ruby should be avoided.
Here the role of the Sun for Capricorn Ascendant should be understood before making recommendations.
AQUARIUS ASCENDANT: For Aquarius ascendant Sun is a maraka planet due to its lordship over the 7th house.
As a general rule, Ruby Gemstone should be avoided here unless it is making a union with Mercury or Venus.
Also here degrees should also be checked if the degrees of Mercury and Venus are higher than Sun then Ruby is highly recommended.
PISCES ASCENDANT: For Pisces ascendant natives Sun is lord of the 6th house and is a malefic planet for them.
Ruby should be avoided here at any cost and the best Gemstone for them are Red Coral, Yellow Sapphire, and Pearl.
So we have seen how and where Ruby should be worn and the same way analysis of lordship should be done for all Gemstones.
Don’t wear Gemstones with the wrong recommendations and also avoid faulty gemstones otherwise, it will lead to the failure of your Gem Therapy.
Always adopt Jyotish Gemstones, they are worthy and value for money.
Planet Sun has rulership over one zodiac only and preferably GEMSTONE RUBY should be worn when Sun has rulership over a benefic house.
