Pisces is the 12th and final sign of the Zodiac. Pisces ascendants are known for being sweet, mystical, kind, and connected to the dream world. 

The planet that rules over Pisces is Jupiter. This connects Pisces to spirituality and wisdom. As a water sign, Pisces ascendants tend to be very sensitive by nature.

Pisces Gemstones

In Vedic Astrology, or Jyotish, the best gemstones for Pisces to wear are yellow sapphire, pearl, and red coral.

Yellow sapphire is the primary Pisces gemstone in Vedic Astrology. This is the gemstone for Jupiter. Jupiter rules over the 1st house (self) and the 10th house (career). Therefore, yellow sapphire is worn to promote:



Good luck

Career development

Positive growth


It is generally considered safe and auspicious for a Pisces rising to wear yellow sapphire. Even if Jupiter is poorly placed or afflicted in the natal chart, the net result of strengthening it should be positive.

Pearl is also commonly worn by Pisces ascendants and virtually always produces positive results. This is the gemstone for the Moon. Moon rules over the 5th house (good luck) for Pisces, so the effects from wearing a Jyotish pearl include:

Good luck





Return on investments

Creative potential

Emotional regulation and internal peace

Physiological cooling

Red Coral is also often worn by Pisces ascendants. This is the gemstone for Mars, which rules over the Pisces 2nd house (income and expression) and 9th house (dharma and support of nature). Water signs often benefit from the boost of fire element that red coral provides, but caution should be exercised if the wearer is prone to overheating or anger naturally. If it’s determined to be a good match, red coral will promote:




Support of nature

Forward motion and success

Physical strength and stamina


Pink coral is also a great option for this sign, it offers the benefits of a Mars gemstone without being too heating.

Optional Pisces Gemstone:

Emerald is sometimes worn by Pisces ascendants. It’s the gemstone for Mercury and rules over the Pisces 4th (home life) and 7th (partnership) houses. In our research and experience, this combination is usually mostly neutral in effect. If specific Mercurian qualities need to be strengthened, such as clarity of communication and success with business transactions, the gem may work with these intentions in mind specifically.

Gems for Pisces to Avoid

Blue Sapphire

Pisces ascendants should never wear Blue Sapphire. Saturn predominantly rules over the 12th house and therefore a Saturn gemstone can cause loss, isolation, expenditure, and depression. 


Pisces should not wear diamonds either. Venus predominantly rules over the Pisces 8th house (accidents, obstacles) and can be very destabilizing. 


Ruby is the Jyotish gemstone for the Sun and should also be avoided by Pisces ascendants. Sun rules over the Pisces 6th house (conflict) and virtually never produces positive results.
