Yellow sapphires are tied to Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system. Jupiter is synonymous with wisdom, grace, philosophy, guidance, education, and knowledge. Yellow sapphires signify intellect, a gift for the arts and other creative endeavours, talent, confidence and nobility. Jupiter, together with its auspicious gemstone, the yellow sapphire, and the colour yellow, lead to progress, optimism, development and growth, and help individuals improve their ability to grasp new concepts. Yellow sapphires are also said to help negate any obstacles that women may be facing in terms of marriage prospects. As per the Western astrological tradition, yellow sapphires are also associated with Mercury.
Favourable combinations for yellow sapphires
Jupiter is the ruling planet for Sagittarius ascendants and as such influences pleasure, assets and family. Many Sagittarians can wear yellow sapphires for life. Mars and Jupiter are compatible, thus ascendants such as Aries, Cancer and Leo benefit greatly from the influence of Jupiter as well as by wearing yellow sapphires.
For Aries ascendants, the ninth house is the most auspicious, and those in whose charts Jupiter is in the first, fourth, fifth or ninth house can wear yellow sapphire birthstones for their entire lives. Cancerians can take advantage of the benefits of yellow sapphires if Jupiter is placed in the first, second, fifth, ninth, tenth or eleventh houses. Leos can similarly wear yellow sapphires to see a positive influence on education, knowledge, legacy and fame.
Scorpios, too, see benefit to education and wealth from Jupiter and the auspicious gemstones. For Capricorns and Aquarians, Saturn and Jupiter play off each other, thus creating blocks, and yellow sapphires should only be considered during Jupiter planetary periods. The yellow sapphire may also be worn by Pisceans as Jupiter is a key planet as it rules career and profession aspects.
Jupiter conflicts with Venus and Mercury, thus causing problems for Librans, Virgos, Geminis and Taurans, who are generally not advised to wear yellow sapphires, which are not compatible with diamonds, blue sapphires and emeralds.
How to wear yellow sapphires
Yellow sapphires should be set in gold and worn on the index finger. The auspicious gemstone comes in various shades of which the best is the golden one, which should be brilliant, flawless and symmetrical. The day related to Jupiter is Thursday, thus the ring, which should allow contact between the gemstone and the skin, should be made on a Thursday and worn on the same day for the most benefit.
