43) Can I ever have discomfort from planetary gemstones or metals?

44) Could you explain the relationship between energy, benign radiations, gems and our karmic body?

45) I'm concerned about malefic positions and planets. Is this going to be an issue if I wear gems that may accentuate malefic effects?

46) I was told by a vedic astrologer that you should never wear a gemstone for a planet that is a malefic in your chart because doing so would amplify its negative energy, and that you should only wear stones for benefic planets that are weak.

What is your position on this?
