"The Cat's Eye can be worn

  1. in the little finger

  2. in the ring of Ashta Dhatu or silver

  3. on a Thursday

  4. at midnight

  5. after observing the usual rituals

  6. and reciting the following mantra 108 times: Aum kem ketave namah

The weight of the gem stone should not be less than three carats.

  • The main Cat's Eye belongs to the Chrysoberyl variety.

  • The substitute of Cat's Eye is Tiger's Eye belonging to the Quartz group of gem stones.

  • The latter stones are much cheaper.

Important: Gomedha and Cat*s Eye and their substitutes


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)

  • " It is very important for all gem stones that

  • before wearing them they should be kept immersed for sometime in unboiled milk or Ganges water.

  • Afterwards the stones should be worshipped with flowers and incense,

  • and the Mantras of the planets should be recited 108 times."

During Ketu Mahadasha - BPL opines when Ketu's rashi-pathi = strong and positive,

and the native would welcome an increase in spiritual perceptions accompanied by a decrease in ego-membrane attachments,

only then would the choice to wear a chatoyant cymophane chrysoberyl Ketu-ratna be recommended to provide beneficial insights

"WHO SHOULD WEAR GOMEDHA AND CATS EYE ?

Rahu and Ketu are shadowy planets and are not lords of any signs of the zodiac.

[according to R-K lord]

According to Dr. B. V. Raman (vide 'Hindu Predictive Astrology'), "Rahu and Ketu are aprakash Graha or lustreless planets and they give the results of the lords of the houses they occupy". Therefore, if Rahu or Ketu occupies a house the lord of which is an auspicious planet in a birth chart and is well placed in it, Rahu or Ketu will give good results of that planet.[gem...]

[according to house 3-6-11]

In spite of the fact that Rahu and Ketu do not own any signs, they have been treated as full-fledged planets by almost all of our ancient authorities (except Varaha Mihir) and they have held that Rahu and Ketu act differently in different houses of the horoscopes. According to Phaladeepika, Rahu and Ketu being first class malefics give adverse effects in all houses except the 3rd, 6th and 11th houses. The favourable effects in these three houses have been described as: Rahu in the 3rd, 6th and 11th makes the native honoured, wealthy and long-lived.

  • Ketu in the 3rd makes the native long-lived, strong, wealthy and renowned.

  • In the 6th, Ketu makes the native generous, full of praiseworthy qualities, firm, famous and conqueror of enemies.

  • In the 11th Ketu gives the native wealth, good qualities, all sorts of luxuries and comforts and success in all his ventures.

[gem...]

According to Brihat Parashara Hora (translation by Pt. Sita Ram Jha) Rahu is exalted in Taurus and Ketu is exalted in Scorpio.

  • Therefore, if an exalted Rahu or Ketu is posited in a quadrant or trine

  • and its dispositor Venus or Mars is an auspicious planet for the concerned birth chart

  • and if well disposed,

  • Rahu and Ketu will give very beneficial results.

  • [gem...]

According to Laghu Parashariand Uttara Kalamrit, Rahu and Ketu function as Yogakarakas in a birth chart [...]

[Laghu Parashari] According to Dewan Ram Chandra, the famous and learned translator and comment commentator of 'Laghu Parashari', this sloka should be [understood to mean]:

  • if Rahu or Ketu is posited in a trine with the lord of a quadrant,

  • or in a quadrant with the lord of a trine,

  • they become Yogakaraka.

[Uttara Kalamrit]

  • if Rahu and Ketu occupy dual signs

  • and if in these signs Rahu or Ketu are conjoined with lords of quadrant or trine houses,

  • the native will, during the Dasha periods of Rahu and Ketu, get wealth, power etc.

This means

  • if the two nodes (Rahu and Ketu) and the lord of a trine are posited in 9th or 10th,

  • or if one of them is in the 9th and the other in the 10th or vice versa.

  • the yoga will cause prosperity to the native .

  • Even a conjunction of either of these with the lord of a quadrant will prove beneficial.

  • In the above circumstances, the Dashas of these two nodes as well as joined with them will prove happy.

If there be a planet who is inauspicious associated with either of the nodes, then the sub-period of the yoga-producing-planet will be adverse. "
