SHUKRA GURU MALA - ZIRCON | CITRINE | SANDALWOOD
ZIRCON - A stone of quiet vibrations, zircon enables one to be at peace with oneself. A stone of great purity, it can create unity with the Higher Self and spirit guides. Natural Zircon today suffers for the similarity of its name to Cubic Zirconia, the laboratory-grown diamond imitation. Some don’t realize that there is actually a beautiful natural gemstone called Zircon. A colorless Zircon clears the aura.
CITRINE - the gemstone of BRIAHSPATI or JUPITER. Citrine is a powerful cleanser and generator. This is one of the crystals that never needs cleansing. It absorbs, transmutes, dissipates, and grounds negative energy and is therefore extremely protective for environment. Citrine is one of the stones of abundance. It teaches how to manifest and attract wealth and prosperity. It imparts joy on all who behold it.
SANDALWOOD - Calming Sandalwood is a wonderful meditation tool. Its sedative property clears stress from the nervous system. Essential oil applied on the third eye awakens intelligence and lifts depression. Burning incense and using a sandalwood mala for japa helps to quiet the mind.
Shukra Graha is known as the son of Sage Bhrigu. He is the embodiment of love and is mostly benefic in nature. Venus is the brightest entity in the night sky, next to moon. He is known to govern all the desires of one's life, beauty, romance, passion, sensuality, jewelry, luxury and wealth.
Venus is ultimately that part of us which is striving to merge, to become perfect, to become whole through liberation. Venus is “the most beautiful”.
