Importance of gold in astrology

Throughout human history gold has been considered an auspicious metal. Gold signifies royalty and purity. It is considered the metal of the gods and goddesses. India is one of the largest consumers of gold in the world. Investing in gold is considered the safest form of investment as the famed yellow metal is recession-proof.

Gold is the most sought-after metal not only for financial purposes. The yellow metal also has many astrological qualities which, if used correctly, can do wonders for the health and spirit of a person. Gold symbolizes purity and is a ubiquitous presence during every good occasion.

Gold and Vedic astrology

In Vedic astrology, wearing gold is very auspicious. Gold is the most preferred metal to contain the gems as recommended in the astrology chart of a person. Wearing gold brings many advantages and a few disadvantages as well.

Gold is also related to the Sun. The Sun is known as the planet of wealth. While wealth is represented by cash, land and other material assets, gold represents the ultimate form of wealth. Doing illegal things related to money, including smuggling, comes because of the debilitation of the Sun. So, a person involved in the smuggling of gold is likely to have a debilitated Sun in their horoscope.

The effect of gold on a person depends on his or her horoscope details. People born in the zodiac signs of Aries, Leo, Virgo and Sagittarius will do well by wearing gold. This will help them overcome obstacles, improve their financial situation and better their overall quality of life.

Gold price astrology

As said before, Sun and Jupiter are the planets associated with gold metal. The rise or fall of the price of gold on any day depends on the Pachanga status of that day dominated by the quality of the Sun and Jupiter, though other planets too are involved.

A retrograde Mars or Mars under the influence of Rahu will drive up the rate of gold. The presence of Jupiter in Leo and the Sun in Libra zodiacs can cause a rise in gold prices. The Sun positioned in Nakshatras like Bharani, Punarvasu, Pushya and Kritika can also cause a rise in gold prices.

On the other hand, a benefic effect on the planet Jupiter brings down the price of gold. The same happens with the presence of Jupiter in Capricorn, Sagittarius, and Aries zodiacs. Gold prices can dip if Saturn is retrograde and is positioned in the zodiac of Gemini.

The presence of the Sun in the Anuradha Nakshatra can also bring down the price of gold. Other planets like Mercury, Rahu and Venus also have a say in the price of gold on any day or period.

Gold smuggling astrology

Smuggling is the illegal transport of substances and often comes because of debilitated planets in the horoscope. When it comes to gold the planets most attached to it are the Sun and Jupiter.

When the Sun is debilitated in Libra and the 12th house, the person may become involved in the smuggling of gold. The 12th house is the house of foreign travel and the house of hidden activities, both of which are related to smuggling. It also suggests connections with the underworld.

Jupiter in the sign of Gemini which is the 8th house in the horoscope is another factor that can push a person towards smuggling. The 8th house is the house of illegal activities. Jupiter in Gemini represents travel and trade documents. Thus, this combination reveals the possibility of the person getting involved in gold smuggling.

Akshaya Tritiya

Akshaya Tritiya is the third day in the bright half of Vaisakha month. This day is considered most auspicious for the purchase of gold. Buying gold on this day is believed to bode well for the overall wealth and health of the person and his family.

It is estimated that almost 28 tonnes of gold were sold in 2022 Akshaya Tritiya. Jewellery sales worth Rs 15000 crore were recorded on that day. The importance that common people attach to buying gold on this day is a testament to the importance of gold in Vedic astrology.
