Diamond (Heera-Vajram) suitability according to lagna
Diamond is the gemstone of Venus. If Venus as lord of auspicious houses is well placed in a nativity, wearing of a diamond will enhance the good effects. If Venus is afflicted in anyway, wearing of diamond will neutralize the consequent evil effects and provide protection to the native.
Aries Ascendant-Mesha Lagna
Venus being lord of the 2nd and 7th houses, is a strong maraka (killer). Besides this, Venus and Mars-the lord of this Ascendant, are not friends. Still if Venus in any nativity be in his own sign or be exalted or otherwise well placed, the wearing of diamond will ensure gains of wealth, happy relations in the family, marital happiness and acquisition of conveyances. But as pointed above, Venus is a strong maraka for this Ascendant, persons whose birth charts do not indicate long life, should avoid wearing diamond.
Taurus Ascendant-Vrishabha Lagna
Venus is lord of the Ascendant and the 6th house. His lordship of the Ascendant will prevail over the lordship of the 6th. The natives of this Ascendant can wear diamond as a protective charm for the whole of their life. This will enable them to enjoy good health, their longevity will be prolonged and all obstacles will disappear from their path, if diamond is worn along with emerald, the gemstone of Mercury who is lord of the 2nd and 5th and a friend of Venus, the persons concerned will get abundant gains of wealth and good fortune. The quantum of beneficial results will be more pronounced in the major period of Venus.
Gemini Ascendant-Mithuna Lagna
Venus is lord of 5th (a trine) and 12th house. The Lordship of a trine makes Venus an auspicious planet for this Ascendant. Moreover, Mercury the lord of the Ascendant is a friend of Venus. Therefore, diamond, if worn in the major period of Venus, will bestow happiness in regard to children, intelligence, name and fame, good fortune, gains of wealth and success in competitive ventures. Here again the results will be more marked and beneficial if diamond is worn along with emerald, the gemstone of the lord of this Ascendant.
Cancer Ascendant-Karka Lagna
Venus is lord of the 4th and 11th houses. According to Parashari principles, Venus is not considered to be an auspicious planet for this Ascendant. Apart from this, Moon, the lord of this Ascendant, is an enemy of Venus. Still we are of the view that the 4th and 11 th houses of a birth chart are not inauspicious houses. Therefore, if diamond is worn in the major period of Venus gains of wealth, success in education, domestic happiness and comforts of house, land and conveyances; may be expected.
Leo Ascendant-Simha Lagna
Venus being the lord of 3rd and 10th houses, is not considered to be an auspicious planet. We are of the view that if Venus, as lord of the 10th, is in the Ascendant, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 10th (in his own sign causing Amala and Malavya Yogas-too wealth and name and fame giving yogas) or 11th, wearing of diamond in the major period of Venus will promote the professional career of the native. He will have abundant gains of wealth and will be honored and recognized.
Virgo Ascendant-Kanya Lagna
Venus is lord of the 2nd and 9th (a trine) house and is almost a yogakaraka. Therefore, by wearing a diamond the native will become wealthy and his learning and good fortune will enable him to achieve success in all his ventures. Wearing diamond with emerald, the gemstone of Mercury, the lord of this Ascendant will prove even more beneficial to the native.
Libra Ascendant-Tula Lagna
Venus is lord of the Ascendant and the 8th house. His lordship of the Ascendant will prevail over the lordship of the 8th. The natives of this Ascendant can and should wear diamond as a protective charm for the whole of their life. Wearing of diamond will bestow good health, long life, name and fame, success in ventures and gains of wealth to the native, It is a ‘must’ for the natives of this Ascendant in the major period of Venus.
Scorpio Ascendant-Vrischika Lagna
Venus is lord of the 7th and 12th houses. Therefore, It will normally not be advisable for the natives of this Ascendant to wear diamond.
Sagittarius Ascendant-Dhanu Lagna
Venus being lord of the 6th and 11th houses, is not considered to be an auspicious planet for this Ascendant. Further, Venus is an enemy of Jupiter, the lord of this Ascendant. Still if as lord of 11th Venus, is in the Ascendant, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th (in his own sign), 7th, 9th, or 11th (in his own sign) wearing of diamond in the major period of Venus will bring abundant financial gains.
Capricorn Ascendant-Makara Lagna
Venus being lord of the 5th (a trine) and 10th (a quadrant) houses, is a yogakaraka planet.
Aquarius Ascendant-Kumbha Lagna
This Ascendant also Venus is a yogakaraka on account of his lordship of the 4th (a quadrant) and 9th (a trine) houses. Therefore, the natives of these two Ascendants will gain in every way by wearing a diamond. The wearing of a diamond is a ‘must’ for the natives of these Ascendants in the major period of Venus. The good results will be significantly enhanced if diamond is worn along with blue sapphire.
Pisces Ascendant-Meena Lagna
Venus being lord of the 3rd and 8th houses is a very inauspicious planet. Venus is also enemy of the lord of this Ascendant. We would, therefore, not advise the natives of this Ascendant to wear diamond.
Diamond should not be worn along with ruby, pearl and red coral.
Diamond should be worn in a platinum, with gold or silver ring in the little finger of the right hand on the morning of a Shukla Paksha Friday after performing the usual rituals. Diamond is a very costly gem. Therefore, it is not possible to fix any minimum weight for it but we are of the view that it should be of at least 1 1/2carats.
