Gold in Astrology and Symbolism
Gold has symbolism that we all can recognize - wealth, prosperity, glamour. Its appearance, scarcity, and malleability/usefulness also made it a material embodying divinity, which is why ancient civilizations dedicated golden statues and crafts to their gods. However, gold takes on much different definitions when it comes to astrology.
Astrology is a pseudoscience that interprets possible information about human affairs and earthly events by studying the movements and positions of stars and planets. Gold, in particular, is tied to Jupiter. Because gold is connected to Jupiter, if Jupiter is weak in your birth chart then you should avoid it.
Gold brings warmth and energy to the ones who wear it. Astrologers advise wearing a gold ring on the index finger to help those who suffer from poor concentration problems, middle finger for fame and esteem related problems, and the little finger for respiratory problems.
It should be avoided by Pieces and Aquarius. This is because gold also absorbs energy. Pregnant and older women should avoid gold because it absorbs too much energy.
Worn correctly, gold can give a person a long and prosperous life. Gold also has a strong connection with the sun, which gives you strength physically and mentally.
You should never wear gold below the waist, but also not near your head. Wear it on your left side when possible.
