Garnet or Gomed birthstone represents Rahu, the ascending node of the moon.
It's natural significations include worldly desires, worldly benefits,
laziness, gratification, and ignorance. It is by nature unpredictable
and creates sudden changes and influences, rigidity and passion.
It is similar to Sani or Saturn in its nature and influence. Traditionally, rahu is known as the "head of the dragon". Gomed Birthstone is used
to counter the ill effect of Rahu which causes students to be disinterestedin
studies and wife struck with sickness or a restless mind.
Benefits: This stone is for Rahu and is very good for students. The gem Gomed cures excess of wind and increases appetite and promises
vitality. It confers health, wealth, happiness and all round prosperity in life. Combined use of gomed and red coral cures nervous disorders, brain troubles,
digestive complaints, accident, snake's bite, insanity, animal bite etc.
Who should wear: Gomed suits persons who are in job of gains of windfall nature. Gomed should be worn by those who are suffering from
childlessness due to 'sarp shaap in the birth chart. Stomach ailments and kidney problems get also minimized. If there is any problem connected with kidney,
gomed may be worn with 'daahine firang (upratna or semiprecious stone). Gomed of a good quality and heavy weight may also be suggested to those who are suffering
from Kaalsarp Yoga or Sarp Yoga . However, placement of Rahu should not be in 8th and 12th. Gomed gives best result if Rahu joins the 3rd, 10th, 11th and 9th house.
Compatibility: Gomed can be worn with coral, ruby and pearl but should not be worn with blue sapphire, cat's eye and emerald.
Many gems should not be worn together as "too many cooks spoil the food". We have always advised one or two gems only to be worn in appropriate finger,
on suitable days and Nakshatras.
How to wear: It should be worn in middle finger of either hand and this should be used along with a red Coral. Gomed should be worn on
Wednesday or Saturday as the case may be. If Rahu is placed in the sign of Jupiter, Mars or Sun, it should be worn in gold otherwise in silver ring.

In the human physiology, rahu corresponds to the
head of the caudate. The caudate
is involved in the control of the saccadic eye movements (the abrupt
short shifts of focus in the eyes). The caudate influences memory
in relation to orientation in space. The caudate is responsible
for our ability to change behavior patterns. It is used to counter
the ill effect of Rahu which causes students to be disinterested
in studies and wife struck with sickness or a restless mind. In
all these situations it helps.
