Planetary gemology is based upon the ancient "Sidereal" system of astrology
that has prevailed untampered in the Orient for thousands of years.
Unlike the Western system, which is based upon the relative positions
of sun and earth, Sidereal astrology is calculated according to
the fixed positions of stellar constellations beyond the solar system.
Experience has proven the Sidereal system to be far more accurate
and incisive than the Western method in determining the astral forces
at work in an individual horoscope.
