Moon – The Moon has a direct effect on people’s moods and feelings. A weak Moon in your astrological charts can cause mood swings, anxiety, depression and the mental inability to deal with people in general. The white pearl helps the wearer gain control over his/her thoughts. Wearing a pearl enhances mental stability and brings contentment in your life.
Mercury – Also known as Buddha has power over the logical side of your mind. ‘Buddhi’ means intelligence and the beautiful green gemstone, emerald aligns with Mercury. It enhances one’s communication skills, mental control as well as memory.
Mars – The red planet, also known as Mangal in Sanskrit signifies passion. The red coral stone is believed to draw the powers of Mars. These energies kindle understanding, courage, and the capability to win over your foes. Anyone with a weak Mars will experience lack of confidence, fear, lethargy or temper issues.
