Purchase NOTE: While less expensive than many of the crystalline gems, Pure Coral is especially tricky to purchase, because the stone is frequently dyed or filled with resin.
Be sure to purchase only an authenticated coral provided by a certified gemologist, who can affirm that any cracks in the Coral have not been filled with resin.
Dr. G.S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology .
Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 95-99:
"Red Coral is the gem stone of Mars.
Coral should be worn by a person in whose birth chart Mars is lord of an auspicious house.
If Mars is lord of the inauspicious house in a birth chart, it will be harmful for the native to wear Red Coral.
Red Coral is not a very costly stone and we should recommend that for remedial purposes only the Red Coral should be used.
Its substitutes, however, are Sang Moongi , Carnelian and Red Jasper. Carnelian is the best substitute. It is cheap and easily available.
For all remedial gemstones, be sure to cleanse the stone energetically with extreme attention to proper mantra.
Flawless gems are expensive and hard to find. Use only a trusted Vedic-trained gemologist. It might be easiest to start with single gem and combine them as your finances allow.
According to Dr. G.S. Kapoor (1994, p 91)
|Q: OK, I'm in the Mangala Mahadasha and I just bought a beautiful red coral set in copper + gold. When should I put it on?||
: Any Tuesday during the waxing moon. Time =
1 hour after sunrise. At the time of application, chant the
Mangala mantra "Om
Ang Angarakaya Namah" 108 repetitions and then apply the
ring or pendant .
In my opinion, a Mangala-related act of compassionate service is also an excellent way to initiate the Jyotisha remedial Munga.
for example, to get your Munga started at a high vibration:
Q: Question from
Simha-lagna native with
Makara-Chandra in bhava-6.
Mangala = Mithuna-11.
First priority at the time of the question was to improve his job situation, in particular his earnings, in order to achieve greater material security for his family.
The "fire trine" lagnas * Mesha-Simha-Dhanusha * nearly always benefit from wearing one or more of the gems for the fire trine: flawless red coral + ruby + yellow sapphire .
In the present nativity, Mangala = YogakarakaL-4+L-9 from the Simha lagna * and * L-4+L-11 from Chandra.
Furthermore, Mangala occupies Mithuna in the 11th = a good position for Kuja, who expresses Active, competitive, dynamic energy in the marketplace of goods and ideas. Mangala's hot, pursuing nature, channeled through conversational Mithuna, will energize gainful activities.
the native should take care with the potentially aggressive Mangala-ratna. Watch, under the auspice of a gem-empowered Kuja, that one does not overshoot the desired target of energized marketplace interactions, to become overly chatty, mentally driven, or impatient.
In lieu of munga, SEVA will also give identical - often superior - results.
A : Namaste,
Delighted to know that you are enjoying the Gem Recommendation.
The best choice for a single gem would be Mangala-ratna = munga= flawless red coral. As your financial situation improves, the munga can later be joined to a flawless Manika (Ruby) set in gold.
To maximize the positive effect of the munga, even if you are able to obtain and wear a quality specimen, I would recommend doing a small amount of charity work serving very young men or older boys in high school or university. You can earn a good deal of positive merit but helping young male trainees to learn marketplace communication skills such as sales, advertising, marketing, public relations, and other types of commercial administration.
Mithuna = commerce; Mangala = competitive young men; bhava-11 (labha) = mentoring , the elder brother.
One possible way to energize the munga effects = through tutoring or mentoring adolescent students in business subjects. You can certainly be paid for the work, it does not have to be free volunteering.
But even if you are paid, it is the spiritual commitment to serve those younger people via a mentor role that brings the merit .
Seva helps the munga to improve its performance as a signal-repeater, by reinforcing your subconscious attunement to the theme of "advancing goals" .
