Astrology is a part of science but it is always not called as exact science but instead it is called as inexact science. Still a lot of people believe in astrology & don't as they think it cannot be taken seriously & the universities did not have astrology as a subject as they want to keep that section of science only which gives them facts & data. But we cannot deny that astrology is very much connected with our lives. Like we all know that when a child is born in India, the doctors keep a record of the time the child was born so that horoscopes can be made later with the help of it. Sometimes children are named by following the alphabets in their birth chart. Astrology is mainly studying the positions of the planets & how they can change the life of people in this earth. By learning about these planets positions astrologers try to predict future of a human being. In marriage also the horoscopes of both husband & wife are matched and checked that they will make a good pair or not. Horoscope is the most important thing when it comes to astrology. Astrology helps in finding the talent people have, it helps people to live a happy & prosperous life. There are many problems in human lives which can be solved by using astrology like, health related problems, marriage problems, love related, extramarital affair, divorce, manglik, lucky date, property & the list goes on long. We could simply say that our can be made real beautiful if we consult a good astrologer. There is also a lot with the planets as different planets create different zodiac signs. Zodiac sign of sun is Leo. There are others as well like the planet mercury has two zodiac signs Virgo & Gemini. Venus also has two signs Taurus & Libra. Zodiac sign for moon is cancer. Mars have Aries as its zodiac sign. Likewise Jupiter has Sagittarius. Saturn the most notorious planet has Capricorn as zodiac. Saturn & Uranus both planets have combined Aquarius as zodiac. Neptune has Pisces as zodiac sign & Pluto have Scorpio as its sign. Astrologers keep in mind all the directions of the planet & help the person who is seeking help from them likewise after deeply observing his horoscope. So it can be said that it is not an easy job but you can say it is also a research. Astrologers research about observations from historic & scientific fields, and then only they can predict the future of any person. Astrology can be divided in three parts, mundane astrology, which deals with natural problems like flood, earthquake, etc. The other part is Natal astrology which deals in prediction of future by checking the horoscope of the person & the third & the final part is horary astrology, this portion deals with preparing a chart according to the horoscope & answer questions according to it.

Now we will talk about Garnet gemstone which is called Gomedh in Hindi. Garnet gemstone is a gem which gets its power from rahu. Normally you can say that rahu is a harmful planet so why should we use a gem for such a planet? The answer is though rahu can be said as a harmful planet if it is in your horoscope but if the rahu sitting in centre made favorable by wearing garnet or if it is worn in state of rahu (rahu dasha), it can give the person wearing it a lot of wealth, good health & sudden fortunes.

Now you may have a question in mind that how should I buy the right garnet gemstone. Actually there are a few checkpoints you have to check before buying a good quality garnet gemstone. First of all if you want to wear the stone for astrological purposes then you should search for Grossularite Hessonite garnet. The color of a good garnet must be like cow urine or pure honey. If we check against light a good garnet looks like it is filled with honey. The surface of the garnet must be clean & no scratch or dent must be there. The gem must not be broken from any side. There must be no black spots inside the garnet gem. Now there is also a question of how to take care of the gem there is process for that also. Garnet is a lot tougher if compared to other gems so chances of its breaking are less than others. The hardness of gems is measured normally in Mohs scale & garnet is 6.5 to 7.5 hard according to the Mohs scale. But if faces a hard blow or wearing roughly will certainly make it vulnerable. Garnets can be attacked by hydrofluoric acid so it must be kept away from that. Garnet should not be cleaned in steam. It must be cleaned in warm soapy water. Other safe thing to clean garnet is the ultrasonic cleaner but it must not be used against a fractured stone. Garnet can be treated by fracture filling but very rarely.

There is a lot to say about this stone as it keeps in control one of the most powerful & harmful planet rahu. Rahu & ketu are the most powerful planets after Saturn because only these two planets are the reason for the solar eclipse & the lunar eclipse. Rahu sitting in the horoscope can be a huge problem if not treated well. It can cause a lot of problems both physically & mentally. It can create fear, selfishness, creates suicide mentality in people. Using the garnet after the detail reading of horoscope will keep away such problems & bring big fortunes, good health, and fame in politics & power to the person wearing the gem. But most importantly it must be worn after deeply reading & analyzing the horoscope of the person who is going to wear it because sometimes there are other planets with rahu who are creating problems with it. So to keep them calm garnet must be worn along with the combination of other stones. A good astrologer can tell you about the perfect details of the garnet you need if it is alone or must be worn with some other stones & like that only a good gemologist & can give you the perfect gem told by the astrologer. So if you are facing these kind or any kind of problems consult a good astrologer first, show him your horoscope then only he can decide whether you need garnet or some other stone. Just follow his instructions & happiness is not far away you will feel it within yourself & you could spread it among the people who are related with you like your family & friends.

So after all I hope you came to know about garnet a lot more from before & if you think you are facing the same issues as mentioned above & need a garnet please consult a good astrologer first & then use it because maybe you have to use it attached with some other stones & also proper mantras & processes are needed while wearing it which a good astrologer can only tell. If you are wearing it now then I hope after reading this article you know its importance & you will be able to keep good care of it by using the processes told here.
