Ruby/Manik is the red gemstone - its colour ranging from pink to deep red. When this gemstone is worn by an individual, his aura gets filled with the positive radiations of it.
These positive radiations do not let the other negative energies enter his aura and thus a ruby stone protects the person from negativity. This gemstone is associated with respect, authority and confidence. Therefore, the one who wears it is benefited with increased self-confidence, more success and respect in the society.
However, it is a fact that the effects of these gemstones depend upon the positioning of all the planets in the birth chart of an individual. Hence, one must always first consult an astrologer who can interpret the birth chart correctly.
Associated With The Sun
Ruby gemstone represents the planet Sun. Sun is the planet associated with courage, power, communication skill, energy, and health of an individual. If the Sun is placed favourably in the birth chart, the ascendant will be royal, confident and reputed. This planet is associated with the soul and denotes father. So the person will have a courageous, powerful and an authoritative personality.
It is specially suited for those in the position of authorities. Those already in the field of politics and in the government must wear these.
However, if the planet is placed at an unfavourable position and at a weak place, the person might have to face financial difficulties and problems at the professional front too. He might also not have a share in the government.
It Helps Treat Certain Diseases
Sun being a major planet to affect the life of the native, and Ruby being the associated gemstone, the importance of wearing the Ruby gemstone increases even more, since it helps treat certain diseases.
There are a number of diseases caused by the weak positioning of this planet. They are problems related to blood pressure, bones, eyesight, lack of confidence, unstable mind, etc.
However, wearing a Ruby gemstone helps cure all these diseases as well.

For the ascendants of this zodiac, if the planet Sun is placed in the third or eleventh house, then it is an auspicious time for him to wear this.
