Saturn are considered to be the friends of Rahu. So, Gomed will give favourable results if the ascendent of native is Gemini, Virgo, Taurus, Libra, Capricorn and Aquarius.
Sun, Moon and Mars are considered to be enemies of Rahu. So, the people of Aries, Scorpio, Cancer and Leo should not wear Gomed. If conjoined, Rahu and Jupiter create Chandal Yoga, though they are not direct enemies of each other. It is not considered to be auspicious. So, the persons of Sagittarius and Pisces should not wear Gomed if it is not essential. In the period of Rahu, Gomed should be worn only after having the advice of an able astrologer. This is also said that Gomed bears the influence of deities (daivishakti). It saves the native from evil spirits. It also wards off visual deficiency.
Like Rahu, Ketu also does not have any sign of its own. Some people consider Pisces to be the sign of Ketu. Ketu is considered exalted in Scorpio and Sagittarius and debilitated in Gemini. So, only the people having a malefic, weak or combust Ketu in their horoscopes should wear cat’s eye. Cat’s eye proves to be favourable for a native if Ketu is posited in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 9th or 10th house in his horscope. However, it is better to wear cat’s eye in the major or sub period of Ketu by having advice from an able astrologer because, it gives result according to the planet it is associated with. It is said that like Gomed, Cat’s eye also saves from evil spirits.
