Ruby must be worn by people with Leo as their zodiac sign, or the sun's position in his horoscope is weak.

Ruby can be worn by engineers, mineralogists, goldsmiths (jewellers), actors, dramatists, artists, government officials, politicians, diplomats, merchants and hopefuls to fame, stock exchangers, traders of cloth, cotton paper and flowers. Artistic people, who want reputation and good health, must wear Ruby.
A man, in whose horoscope, the sun is in the weakening, is liable to suffer from troubles in back-bone, low and high blood pressure, heart, brain, eyes, indigestion, lungs, dyspepsia, piles, diabetes, jaundice and cholera.

Then after washing it with water on Sunday before 10 a.m., it should be worn on the ring finger, while chanting the Mantras-"Om Hreem Hansah Suryaye Namah Om". One should say a prayer- 'O God! sun we have put on your gem for your grace, kindly save us fully'.
