How to wear and activate Pukhraj (Yellow Sapphire) for Jupiter ?

Wearing a Pukhraj (Yellow Sapphire) for Jupiter requires specific guidelines to maximize its astrological benefits. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to properly wear a Pukhraj:

1. Choosing the Right Pukhraj

  • Quality: Select a high-quality, natural, untreated Yellow Sapphire. The stone should be clear, with a vibrant yellow color and minimal inclusions.
  • Carat Weight: The gemstone should ideally weigh at least 5 carats. The exact weight can be adjusted based on individual astrological needs as advised by a professional astrologer.
  • Shape and Cut: Pukhraj is often cut in cabochon or faceted forms. Ensure the stone has a good cut to maximize its brilliance.

2. Setting the Gemstone

  • Metal: Yellow Sapphire is typically set in gold, as gold is believed to enhance its astrological benefits. However, it can also be set in silver if advised by an astrologer.
  • Design: Ensure the setting allows the gemstone to touch your skin directly, as direct contact is crucial for the stone's energy to influence you.

3. Purification and Activation Ritual

Before wearing the Yellow Sapphire, it’s essential to purify and activate it. Here’s how:


  1. Soak the Gemstone:
    • Soak the Yellow Sapphire in a mixture of holy water (Ganga Jal) or cow's milk for at least 30 minutes. You can also use a mixture of honey, fresh milk, and holy water.
    • Rinse the gemstone with clean water after soaking.


  1. Mantra Chanting:
    • Hold the purified gemstone in your right hand.
    • Recite the Jupiter mantra "Om Graam Greem Graum Sah Guruve Namah" 108 times to energize the stone. This should be done on a Thursday morning during the Jupiter Hora (the planetary hour of Jupiter).

4. Wearing the Gemstone

  • Day and Time: The best day to wear a Yellow Sapphire is Thursday, which is associated with the planet Jupiter. The optimal time is early in the morning, preferably during the Jupiter Hora.
  • Finger: Wear the Yellow Sapphire ring on the index finger of your right hand. In some traditions, it can also be worn on the ring finger of the right hand.
  • Orientation: Ensure the gemstone is set in a way that it touches your skin directly.

5. After Wearing the Gemstone

  • Observations: Monitor any changes in your life, health, and well-being after wearing the Yellow Sapphire. Positive effects might include improved health, financial gains, and enhanced mental clarity.
  • Maintenance:
    • Clean the gemstone regularly to keep it free from dust and grime. Use a soft cloth and mild soapy water.
    • Avoid exposing the stone to harsh chemicals or extreme temperatures.
    • Store the ring separately from other jewelry to prevent scratches and damage.
