|Jewelry & Gems for Self-Discovery
Choosing Gemstones that Delight the Eye & Strengthen the Soul
Twelve Stepping Stones for Personal Transformation
One of the oldest books in the world, the Rig Veda, comes from India. In it, there are descriptions of planetary positions. With the use of modern computers, the accuracy of those descriptions has been confirmed—the planets were in those positions over 10,000 years ago! India has a long history of astronomical and astrological observation. Some scholars even believe that Indian astrology, called Jyotish, influenced the Babylonians, to whom we trace Western astrology.
Although there are many differences between Jyotish and Western astrology, one of the most important ones is the "remedy." If there is a problem indicated in your chart, the science of Jyotish has a cure that usually involved the use of prayers or mantras, meditation with visual images (yantras), or the innate powers of gemstones. Wearing gemstones to heal and solve problems, guided by astrology, has a long history in India. Now this technique explodes in the West with Shakti Carola Navran's Jewelry & Gems for Self-Discovery.
This is the book that links astrology and the power of gems in new ways for a Western audience. If you know nothing about astrology or gems, this is the perfect book for you as it clearly explains everything. If you're a professional astrologer, this book will help you provide clients with tools for resolving difficulties indicated in their charts. In short, Jewelry & Gems for Self-Discovery is perfect for astrologers, mystics, healers, and anyone interested in the power and beauty of gems.
