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.

• Learn how to obtain a free copy of your astrological birth chart
• Discover the meanings of the planets and signs, and how they interrelate
• Identify the twelve gems that correspond to the planets in your chart
• Design jewelry for your gems based on symbolism and metallic structure
• Read about sixty-four gemstones and how they relate to your well being
• Learn about the chakras as part of your personal evolutionary process

Although concepts such as these may be old, they are revolutionary in the West. Become part of the revolution!

If you have ever tried to learn the basics of astrology and given up because it seems too complicated, this is the book for you! It makes everything easy to understand and doesn't bring in a bunch of complex concepts you won't need to use. You'll easily learn about the houses, signs, planets, and their meanings. With those three brief sets of information, you're ready to learn how to give a basic interpretation of a horoscope. Really. That's all there is to it.

Then you'll learn about gems and how they relate to the specific locations of the planets in your horoscope. A simple chart lets you look up which stones are appropriate. Then there is a complete listing of dozens and dozens of gemstones, from Alexandrite to Zircon, describing them physically as well as their spiritual powers.

Includes Sixty-Four Full-Color Photos
In order to make identifying the gems easier, Jewelry & Gems for Self-Discovery includes brilliant, full-color photos of sixty-four gemstones described in the book. But this book goes much further then just picking a gem. It also deals with designing jewelry that is beautiful, healing, and powerful to wear. Using this book will help you learn the metaphysical qualities of metals so you can choose the right metal-from a metaphysical standpoint-to use when you mount the gems. Finally, you'll discover the spiritual impact of basic shapes (square, triangle, spiral, etc.) so you can have the perfect spiritual jewelry in shape, metal, and gem. Soon you'll be the proud owner of a necklace, ring, pendant, or earrings that are specific to you and your spiritual and healing needs.

Jewelry & Gems for Self-Discovery is truly a groundbreaking book for everyone who adores jewelry, the beauty of gemstones, and spiritual development. It's a totally new yet traditional addition to any astrologer's tools. In short, this should be the next book you get for your spiritual journey.

We all strive for more health, happiness, and hope in our lives. This enhanced well-being can be as simple as integrating any number of aroma-energetic practices into your life; these practices combine the powerful effects of aromatherapy and energy for a more powerful result.
