Our body comprises of three elements Vata (air), Pitta (bile) and Kapha. The element of heat which circulates in our body is termed as Pitta. This Pitta element is responsible for the movement of nutrition and the bodily functions related to balance of body temperature. An equitable balance among three doshas, provide vitality and health to human beings.
But when any one of them is disturbed, it upsets the equilibrium and we stand suffering from variety of diseases. According to Vedic treaties in Vedic astrology, the movement in zodiac and transit effect of planetary influence is largely responsible for such health issues.
Pitta plays a vital role in the movement of nutrition on the body. Pitta forms the major element of importance in the digestive system of human body. As per ayurvedic texts, the number of diseases due to Pitta disturbance are 20 in number since they involve malfunctioning of the digestive aspect of the system.
The Pitta element of the body is divided into five types, each of which is located in different parts of the body. The five types of Pitta are
|S.No.||Subtypes of Pitta||Locations||Actions|
|1.||Pachaka||Lower part of stomach and small intestine||Digestion|
|2.||Ranjaka||Liver, spleen, stomach||Formation of blood|
|3.||Sadhaka||Heart / Brain||Effect on mental function – fear/bravery, calmness / anger confusion / clarity|
|5.||Bhrajaka||Skin||Temperature regulation, sweating, color and complexion|
Pitta element is located in the Liver, which secretes the digestive juices moving into stomach.
Pitta plays important role in regulating the digestive processes in the body and ensure that nutrition reaches to every part of our body.
As per Vedic astrology, there are some planets and their associated zodiac signs which are associated with the Pitta element. The planets and the zodiac signs have fire element as their essential principle and hence, they become pitta planets. They are as follows:
Zodiac signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Scorpio
Planets: Mars, the Sun, Jupiter (secondary), Ketu.
These planets have their central element of support as fire and hence, when they become the Lagna planet or have an effect on the central houses of the Kundali chart, the influence of these planets causes disturbance or regulation of Pitta in the body of the individual. Depending upon their own positions in the Kundali, these planets have their multiple effects on the Pitta element and hence, the effect can be seen in microscopic form.
There are six tastes as per ayurvedic texts, viz. Sweet, Sour, Salty, Bitter, Hot and Astringent. The tastes are beneficial for Pitta balancing are sweet, astringent and bitter and the other aggravate Pitta. Diet comprising of sweet, bitter and astringent taste shall be helpful in the balancing of Pitta.

Each gem represents a different colour of rainbow; some are even combination of few colours. Wearing recommended gems helps us to attract concentrated energy from universe, which affects our various chakras. However the gem selection is a very scientific subject, it can be done only after studying the horoscope and transit of planets at a given time. Many people have a habit of multiple gems or stones, which may be harmful.

Our ancient puranas suggest 5 key solutions to solving problems – Tantra, Mantra, Mani Aushadhisnan and Ratna (Gems).
They describe the origins of gems and their strong relationship with the nine planets. Formed over eons, often at high pressure, the earth’s gemstones embody intense concentration of energy. Every gemstone has the power to draw energy or beams from respective planet and channelize into the wearer’s body.
Each stone has its own distinct feature and helps you control a different power. Where right hand is for the solar remedies, the left hand is for lunar energies. Proper channelization of these energies through the right gemstone helps one to attain a better control over his/her life. Suppose a particular planet is not strong in the horoscope, a person is suggested to wear the stone that represents that planet. E.g. Wear Yellow Sapphire to strengthen Jupiter.
You can either get this energy channelised by the means of your birth stone or Yog Karaka stone (suitable during the current planetary positions – Dasha, Mahadasha) that amplifies the benefits for you.
One should NOT wear any gems without consulting a gemstone consultant as it is not a fashion accessory.
