In Hindu astrology, there are two planets that are considered inauspicious completely. Actually, they are not planets but shadow entities. They affect the wearer with the same energy as that of the main planets like Jupiter, Saturn, and more. Rahu and Ketu are different shadow planets situated vis-a-vis the horoscope of an individual. 

Malefic effects of rahu result in individuals having harsh speech, bad relationships with elders and peers, emotional imbalance, and more. The inauspicious presence of Ketu leads to bad mental health, spiritual challenges, obstacles in career, and conflicts in marriage. In order to remove the bad effects, astrologers suggest different gemstones for Rahu and Ketu. Let's explore these, but before that, we should know more about these two as individual planets. 

Significance of Rahu and Ketu in Astrology

In English, they are referred to as the North and South nodes of the Moon, respectively. These two shadow planets are sometimes good. It depends upon the position in which they are situated in one’s horoscope. For instance, the South Node of the Moon, when situated with planets that are friends to it, like Budh (Mercury), Shukr (Venus), or Shani (Saturn), gives positive results. Whereas if Rahu and Surya (Sun) sit together, it forms Pitra dosh.

If it is situated with Mangal (Mars) and Moon Graha in a person’s horoscope, it forms Angarak and Grahan Dosha, respectively. All these doshas are considered inauspicious and can lead to many ill effects in an individual's life, such as loss of wealth, bad fortune, and more conversely,  if Rahu (North Lunar node) is present in a favorable position, it brings fame, money, and career success. 

Ketu (South Lunar Node) is friends with Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and Venus but is an enemy to the Sun, Moon, and Mars. This is the shadow planet aligned more towards spirituality and brings good health, wealth, and prosperity. 

To reduce the malefic effects, gemstones for Rahu and Ketu are considered, and one should wear them while performing all the rituals. 

Gemstone for Rahu 

There are three specific stones suggested for lowering the ill effects of the North lunar node. 

  • Hessonite 

Hessonite Stone

Hessonite, also called Gomed in Hindi, is worn to balance the negative energy of this shadow planet. It features a reddish brown color and is worn by zodiac signs like  Taurus, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. Gomedhikam Stone is also called Rahu stone as it protects the wearer from the evil effects of this shadow planet. Since the Mahadasha of this Graha influences all aspects of one’s life, like career, relationship, and more, the hessonite stone benefits from overcoming these challenges. Individuals such as those working in the IT sector or are politicians, lawyers, or government officials should wear this gemstone to achieve professional success. 

  • Tiger’s Eye 

If the north lunar node is weak in your birth chart, you are suggested to wear a tiger eye stone. This gemstone boosts confidence in the wearer and helps them to gain success in their career. If you feel demotivated or are not able to express your views, wear this stone as a pendant or keep it in your pocket. As per Vedic astrology, it is believed that if an individual’s birth chart shows Rahu in the second house, the person has a harsh speech. Moreover, the person has a bad relationship with their parents. Wearing this stone helps nullify all these issues. 

Gemstone for Ketu 

Empowering Ketu with gems can positively impact your life. It helps remove its bad effects. Let's explore these stones:

  • Cats Eye Stone 

Cats Eye Stone

Also known as Lehsuniya Stone, this is one of the astrological gems that remove ill effects of the south lunar node of the Moon. This stone features a yellowish-green hue and connects well with the powerful energy of the ruling planet. Astrologers believe that the weak placement of Ketu in a natal chart brings health issues, misfortune, and delays in good work. To make this planet strong, the original Lehsunia stone is recommended. It is said that if this shadow planet is placed in the second house of your birth chart, it creates eye health issues. Thus, a cat’s eye stone benefits you amazingly. Moreover, it protects you from negative energies. This semi-precious gemstone empowers you with clarity of mind, focus, and concentration.
