Blue Sapphire-Neelam

Neelam or Blue Sapphire, is the most dreaded gem, and any lover of astrology may be seen with a question mark when asked to wear Neelam. It is due to the unstable nature of Neelam which brings only extremities . It provides very beneficial results if suitable but may destroy the whole life if proven unsuitable. it is not uncommon to observe the malefic effects brought on by Neelam even though it appears suitable in the nativity. This is why it is always taken on a trial basis first, and if it does not cause any harm during the trial period it may be set in a ring.

During the trial period it may manifest its harm by a continuous and acute headache, minor accidents, pain in the abdomen, bad news and delays in almost all ventures. I also remember an old astrologer who told me that if Neelam is kept under the pillow for at least three nights continuously the quality of dreams are sufficient to tell about the suitability of the Gem. Minimum trial over the body should be ten days. Neelam is ruled by Saturn, the planet of hardship and struggle, and thus it is obvious, that it will be suitable to a very few natives, but once proved suitable it is one of the greatest blessings.

Neelam for Various Ascendants

Aries. Lord of the 10th and 11th houses Saturn is a neutral planet with a slight benefic component. Its beneficence is also increased in its own star. When Saturn is posited in 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10 and 11and it is in the major period of Saturn itself that one may use Neelam. Saturn in the 10th house creates “Sasa Yoga” and here the use is most suggestible. However, as such in other periods other gems are useful.

Taurus: YogaKaraka Saturn also becomes more beneficial when in the stars of Saturn and Rahu. Neelam is a most useful gem for these natives irrespective of periods.

Gemini: Lord of trikona also rules 8th. It never becomes yogi in any star. As such a trikona lord is always suspicious and more over its mooltrikona sign is placed in 9th itself but here Saturn is an exception though it is not malefic but it is indifferent. In the weakly placed one may use Neelam , otherwise other gems are useful.

Cancer & Leo: Lord of inauspicious houses of Saturn is never benefic. There is no indication of Neelam for these natives.

Virgo: Lord of 5th and 6th houses is benefic but the condition is almost the same as Gemini ascendant. Here other gems are preferred. However, in the major period of Saturn, when Saturn placed in its own sign one may use Neelam.
