Jyotish Astrological Gemstone Meaning
First of all, I guess it would be prudent to identify what “Jyotish” is. Then, we’ll dig into Jyotish gemstone meanings.
Jyotish is the Hindu study of the planets, stars and the horizon.
‘Jyoti’ means ‘light’ that illuminates from the heavens and is considered the primary prana (energy) sustaining life.
The ‘sh’ in Jyotish means “best or wise.” Combine these two parts and we could say Jyotish is the ‘wisdom of illumination.’
Gemstones have earned a rightful place in both classic astrology and Hindu (Jyotish) astrology. Gemstone correspondences will vary according to different branches of astrology.
