7 dont’s after a meal

*    Don’t smoke-Experiment from experts proves that smoking a cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of   cancer is higher).
*    
Don’t eat fruits immediately – Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr after meal or 1hr before meal.

*     Don’t drink tea – Because tea leaves contain a high content of acid.This substance will cause the Protein content in the food we consume to be hardened thus difficult to digest.

*    Don’t loosen your belt – Loosening the belt after a meal will easily cause the intestine to be twisted &blocked.

*    Don’t bathe – Bathing will cause the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs & body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease.  This will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.
*    
Don’t walk about – People always say that after a meal walk a hundred steps and you will live till 99. In actual fact this is not true. Walking will cause the digestive system to be unable to absorb the nutrition from the food we intake.
*    
Don’t sleep immediately – The food we intake will not be able to digest properly. Thus will lead to gastric & infection in our intestine.

Cat’s Eye Gemstones

Cat’s Eye Gemstones

The Real Cat’s Eye

Among the gemstones that display special optical phenomena, cat’s eye gems are particularly interesting, in part because the effect is found in so many different gem varieties. The technical term for the cat’s eye effect is chatoyancy, derived from the French for eye of the cat (“oeil de chat”).

The chatoyant effect resembles, appropriately enough, the slit eye of a cat. The effect is caused by the reflection of light by parallel fibers, needles or channels in the gemstone. Usually the gemstone needs to be cut en cabochon with the base in parallel with the fibers for this effect to be displayed. When the gem is rotated, the cat’s eye appears to glide over the surface. The chatoyant effect is similar to asterism or the star effect, except there is one straight ray instead of four or six. Occasionally one will find a cat’s eye with two parallel rays.

Chrysoberyl Cat’s Eye

The most famous and valuable cat’s eye gemstone is chrysoberyl cat’s eye. In fact when the term cat’s eye is used alone in the gem trade, it always refers to chrysoberyl cat’s eye. All other types of cat’s eye gems require an additional varietal designation, such as cat’s eye apatite.

Chrysoberyl cat’s eye belongs to the same family as the rare alexandrite. Since chrysoberyl is a very hard stone (8.5 on the Mohs scale), it is suitable for all kinds of jewelry. Chrysoberyl cat’s eye is found in Sri Lanka and Brazil, with additional deposits in India, China and Zimbabwe.

The cat’s eye effect can be found in a number of other gem varieties, though in some cases the effect is quite rare. Among the finer gemstones, cat’s eye tourmaline can often be found in green and pink, and larger sizes are not uncommon. With a hardness of 7 to 7.5 on the Mohs scale, cat’s eye tourmaline is durable enough for rings.

Several quartz varieties are well-known for their chatoyant effects. The most famous is so-called tiger’s eye. Found in gold-yellow and gold-brown, it is first formed as the fibrous blue mineral called crocidolite, which is made up of iron and sodium. The crocidolite was gradually transformed into quartz while maintaining its fibrous formations.

Cat’s Eye Apatite

Among the softer gemstones, the cat’s eye effect is often found in the gemstone apatite, in a golden color somewhat reminiscent of chrysoberyl. It can also be found in colorless, pink, yellow, green, blue and violet. But with a hardness of only 5 on the Mohs scale, cat’s eye apatite is most suitable for pendants, brooches and earrings.

The cat’s eye effect can also be seen in a number of other gem varieties, but only very rarely. They include emerald, iolite (also known as cordierite), aquamarine, andalusite, tanzanite and scapolite. These are real collector’s items if you can find them.

Chrysoberyl

Like the eye of a sleek feline predator, the chrysoberyl cat’s eye winks at the astonished observer – a real miracle of Nature! That’s why only this attractive gemstone has the right to the short, fitting name of “cat’s eye”. This gem is really something special with its narrow, bright band of light on a shimmering golden background, which seems to glide magically across the surface when the stone is moved.
(For your information: cat’s eye effects can also occur in other gemstones, but these always have to be referred to more precisely by adding the name of the gemstone concerned: e.g. quartz cat’s eye.)

Often, the name chrysoberyl is spoken in the same breath as that of the beryl group, the most well known representatives of which include the emerald and the aquamarine. The name ‘chrysoberyl’ comes from the Greek and means ‘gold-coloured beryl’. In spite of its name, however, it is not actually a beryl at all. Together with alexandrite ,chrysoberyl forms an independent gemstone category, in which the former, which appears to change its colour, is regarded as the more attractive representative, though in fact it is quite definitely the chrysoberyl cat’s eye which is entitled to stake that claim.

From a mineralogical point of view, chrysoberyls are aluminium oxide containing beryllium, and thus actually have little in common with the beryls, which belong to the silicate family. Indeed, with their excellent hardness of 8.5 on the Mohs scale, they are clearly superior to the beryls. The popular chrysoberyls come in many nuances between lemon and greenish yellow, and in honey colours and shades from mint green to brownish green, and are mostly found in the gemstone deposits of Brazil, Sri Lanka or East Africa.

Protection and positive energy

Since ancient times, chrysoberyl has been regarded as a gemstone which protects its wearer and keeps disaster at bay. The cat’s eye most of all is seen as a particularly effective protective stone and talisman. On account of its golden tones, chrysoberyl is often also associated with wealth – and this idea is certainly not without foundation, since in its most beautiful form as a high-quality cat’s eye it is up among the gemstones of the luxury class.

Discipline and self-control are the qualities mainly associated with chrysoberyl in modern gemstone therapy. Chrysoberyls are said to promote concentration and the ability to learn, and to enable the wearer to think clearly and far-sightedly. Thanks to the secret power of the chrysoberyl, negative thoughts are said to be transformed into positive energy. And these positive qualities are said to be even more marked with a chrysoberyl cat’s eye. However, chrysoberyl is also regarded as a gemstone which promotes tolerance and harmony, and it is one of the lucky stones for those born under the sign of Leo.

The magical eye of the cat

Chrysoberyl cat’s eyes are genuine rarities which are found only in a few deposits in the world, together with other varieties of chrysoberyl. One can hardly imagine that a gemstone could wink like the eye of a cat in such a remarkably genuine way. Is it magic, or Nature? And apart from that, what is it that causes this irresistibly beautiful show of light?

Scientists have discovered that very fine inclusions, deposited in the stone, are responsible for this fascinating phenomenon. The incident light is reflected off them, so that a bright strip of light appears, running perpendicular to the inclusions, similar to the eye of a feline predator. When the stone is turned, this strip seems to glide away across the surface of the stone. In technical terminology this phenomenon is known as ‘chatoyancy’, which comes from the French ‘chat’ (for cat) and ‘oeil’ (for eye). Whilst chrysoberyls lacking the cat’s eye effect are mostly faceted, cat’s eyes are always cut into cabochons, since only tall, rounded shapes render the line of the eye properly visible.

The chrysoberyl, with its hues ranging from honey-coloured to mint green, is a popular gemstone, and one which is esteemed by connoisseurs and gemstone lovers the world over. In its most attractive variety, the cat’s-eye, it is an extremely valuable stone for those in the know. In general, the value of a chrysoberyl – as with other gemstones – depends on its quality, that is to say its beauty, colour and attractiveness, the depth of the colour and its transparency. Anyone who wants to acquire a cat’s-eye of good colour and with a finely marked eye-line will be obliged to dig fairly deep into his pocket, for these gems fetch much higher prices on account of their beauty and rarity. When buying a cat’s-eye, you should be aware of this: it is important that the ‘eye’ has a fine line running right through it, and that it can be recognised clearly. In particularly good specimens, it seems to open and close when the stone is turned. Fine cat’s eyes should be of a distinctive colour and be as transparent as possible. The most popular ones are those of a beautiful honey yellow and those with fine green tones.

Chrysoberyl cat’s eyes are among the most beautiful things that Nature has created. Again and again, they fire the enthusiasm of those who are looking for something individual and unique. Cat’s eyes are also well suited to being worn as jewellery by men. And without doubt, many a man has allowed himself to be seduced by a beautiful cat’s eye too … .

Cat’s Eye (Tiger’s Eye, Falcon’s Eye or Hawk’s Eye) gemstone meaning

Cat’s eye lets you see everything. Use the cat’s eye for insight and you can be a very lucky person. When used in jewelry the cat’s eye may bring good luck and protection from the evil eye to the wearer. It also known to bring clear thinking and insight.

Healing properties of Cat’s Eye

Tiger’s-eye or Cat’s-Eye is a stone for the mind, not the body. This is a powerful stone and must be used carefully. Tiger’s-eye has the power to focus the mind. It will cause the mind to have feeling of oneness and feel more direct in all thoughts. It makes one aware of one’s own needs related to the needs of others. This is a very deep process and not all are capable of using the energy of the Tiger’s-eye correctly.

It should be worn as a bracelet or ring set in silver and worn on the right side of the body. A personal symbol carved in Tiger’s-eye is excellent for the spiritually advanced to use in meditation.

CAT’S EYE

Cat’s Eye harmonizes Ketu which is traditionally known as the “tail of the dragon”. In Jyotish, Ketu is the descending node of Chandra (Moon). It’s influences are similar to Mangal or Mars and include liberation, abstract thinking, asceticism, non-attachment, healing, moksha–enlightenment, wisdom and that which is hidden. Ketu’s influence in the physiology is represented by the tail of the caudate. It’s influence is over learning and emotions. It’s wearing removes physical weakness. Mental worries are removed. If cat’s eye acts favorably, it makes one a wealthy person.

Relationship of planets

Relationship of planets

Planets are friendly, inimical or neutral to one another.

How to determine which other planets are friendly or inimical to a planet?

Each planet has a ‘moolathrikona’ sign. Signs 2, 4 5, 8, 9 and 12 from that sign and their rulers are friendly and others are inimical. If one of the signs is friendly and the other inimical, then the sign and its ruler become neutral. And if the planet gets exalted in a sign, it is no more inimical.

Let us explain this with some concrete examples. 

Taurus is the Moolathrikona sign of Moon. Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces are friendly signs. Since Mercury rules Gemini (2) and also Virgo (5), it is friendly to the luminary. Sun is a friend because Leo is the 4th sign from Taurus. Venus rules the 6th and the 1st but Moon is exalted in Taurus, so Venus neutral. In the same way, Mars is neutral since it rules the 7th (inimical) and the 12th (friendly). Jupiter and Saturn are also neutral.

Mercury has Virgo as its ‘moolathrikona’ sign. According to the rule, Libra, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aries, Taurus and Leo are friendly. That means, Venus and Sun are friends. Mars rules the 3rd and the 8th. So the planet is neutral to the ambassador. Juppiter ruling the 4th and the 7th from Virgo, it becomes a neutral planet to Mercury. Saturn owns the signs Capricorn and Aquarius, 5th and the 6th signs. Therefore, the dreaded planet becomes neutral. Moon rules the 11th and hence an enemy.

Temporary relationship

In addition to natural relationship, the planets acquire temporary relationship also. Planets in the signs 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 10th, 11th and 12th from a planet’s position become friendly and others are inimical. If we combine both the natural and temporary relation, we will see that for any planet, there will be ‘athimitra’ (very friendly), ‘athichattru’ (very adverse) and neutral planets. For instance, Jupiter is inimical to Venus. If Venus is in Vigo and Jupiter in Scorpio, the latter is a temporary friend because the benevolent planet is in third sign from the planet of arts. So, it is neutral to Venus.

When we study a chart, we should take this factor into account.

Let us take an example chart.

Let us find out the relationship other planets bear to Venus in the aboved chart.

Sun is a natural enemy to Venus. The luminary is in the XII to Venus and becomes a temporary friend. So Sun is neutral to Venus.

Moon is an enemy too. But the fastest planet is in the 5th from Venus. It is unfriendly to Venus by rule. Thus, Moon becomes the ‘adhi chatru’ or a bitter enemy to the planet of arts.

Mars is neutral to Venus by nature. But being placed in the 4th sign to Venus, the fiery planet becomes a friend to Venus.

Again, Jupiter is a neutral by nature to the ‘asura guru’ (head priest of the demons). But as it transits the 6th sign, it becomes an enemy.
