How to spot problems caused by weak planets and eliminate them Part III

It is quite likely that in any horoscope one or more planets will be placed in houses where they do not give favorable results. The degree of the adverse results will depend upon the strength of a planet and the houses owned by it. In this multi part article we shall take a look at Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu, and discuss appropriate remedial measures. In this third article, as also in the next one, Mars.

Mars, the fourth planet from Sun is a remarkable planet in as much as that it is the only planet that never really becomes Neech (Loses his goodness). This may sound strange because we know that Cancer happens to be the sign where Mars becomes Neech at 28°. When in Cancer Mars happens to be fourth from his Mool Trikon Rashi Aries and ninth from his other Rashi Scorpio. This is peculiar to Mars and doesn’t happen with any other planet. It is for this reason that for Cancer Lagna (ascendant) Mars remains a Yoga Karak even when he is placed in Lagna in a Neech state.

This is in keeping with the status of Mars as the commander in chief of the army of Devas (demi gods). They never really get defeated, not for long anyway!

Astrologically Mars is called Bhumi Putra in Sanskrit. This was a mystery to most people until modern science came up with the theory that Mars indeed broke off from earth when it collided with another heavenly body and the matter hived off into space became the genesis of Moon and Mars. 

Significations of Mars

Mars signifies younger brother, blood, red color, base and rotten things, military activities, commerce, air journeys, weaving and public speaking. Intellectually he is the significator of logical and deductive thinking. Mars also signifies real estate in the form of buildings. (Undeveloped land comes under Saturn). Mars also represents independence, persistence and youthful age.

Mars is masculine and malefic and rules over fire places, boilers, furnaces, urinary system, enemies, wounds, organizing capacity, executive ability, leadership over laborers and police department.

Materials governed by him are copper, metals, mines, minerals and ores, gold fields, coral, weapons, lands and tobacco.

Diseases caused by Mars are rupture of veins and arteries, diseases of the bone marrow, hemorrhage, abortions, menstrual disorders, gonorrhea, rheumatism, cuts, burns and muscle atrophy.

Mars is a Kshatriya (Warrior) by caste, is Masculine sex and rules over southern Direction.(it is for this reason that in Vastu Shastra all heat producing implements like HVAC and kitchen are best sited in the south or southwest direction.)

Weakness of Mars

Under certain circumstances Mars loses his power to give favorable results. This happens when Mars is combust or very close to Sun. In this state, Mars is said to be set. The Sanskrit term for this is Ast.

When conjunct with his arch enemies Saturn and Rahu, Mars tends to give bad results. A similar thing happens when he is placed in 6,8 and 12 houses. Whatever the reason, weakness of Mars will create problems in all areas represented by Mars to some extent. Increasing affliction being responsible for increasing distress.

Mars represents violence and blood spilling. When Mars is intimately connected to Ascendant and Ascendant lord, he makes one violent. Moon represents mind, and Moon-Mars combination makes one mentally cruel. The fourth house and fourth lord also represent mind. If all factors or a majority of them occur in a chart, the person is definitely cruel and violent and will not hesitate to take a life to further his objectives.

For Aries Lagna (Ascendant), Mars becomes the Lagna and the eighth Lord. Both are houses of longevity. If such a Mars is associated with Rahu and Saturn, the life span suffers. The remedy will involve wearing a blood red Coral in a silver ring on the ring finger of the right hand and propitiation of the Rahu and Saturn through Mantra, Stotra fasting and donation.

For Aries Lagna (ascendant), If Mars is placed in the fourth house, he generates the possibility of chest disease and loss of money. Happiness also takes a hit. A five carat blood red Coral set in a silver ring worn on the ring finger helps. 

If Moon is placed in Scorpio Ascendant, Mars becomes a confirmed representative of blood because Moon herself represents blood. If Mars is then influenced by Rahu and Saturn, it is certain that blood and its flow will be adversely affected. A person with this combination can suffer from leukemia and similar diseases. If Mars is placed in the eighth house, there may be danger to life. The remedy will involve a red colored coral set in a silver ring and worn on the ring finger of right hand. This will take care of the weakness of Mars. The complications caused by Rahu and Saturn can be removed by mantra, fasting and donation.
