Fine remedies for nine planets Part - II

Free Vedic astrology article

Favorable periods and times
For a person who is intent upon rewriting the Karmic script brought forward from past lives, the following periods will prove generally more helpful than others.
1.    The waning Moon fortnight
2.    the fourth or the eighth lunar date in the above period
3.    Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays
4.    Bharani Nakshatra
5.    Solar or lunar eclipses (should be visible in the area)
6.    One’s own Birth Nakshatra (The Nakshatra occupied by the Moon at birth)
7.    Bhadra, Vaidhriti, Vyatipaat or Krantisaamya
8.    Sankranti or the day on which Sun changes sign in the Hindu Panchang.

The days when most of these parameters are available will prove very helpful. For example the fourth or the eighth lunar date of the dark fortnight which happens to be falling on a Tuesday, Saturday or Sunday when an eclipse is taking place will prove very good. The power will improve further if the Nakshatra prevailing on that day happens to be Bharani or one’s own Nakshatra. Bhadra, Vaidhriti, Vyatipaat or Krantisaamya on such a day will increase the potency even more.

Practically speaking days like this will be extremely rare. One should therefore look for convergence of as many factors as possible. Such days are best for removing problems caused by the planets placed adversely in the birth chart. Natural malefics like Mars, Ketu, Saturn and Rahu may or may not fall in the category of a malefic planet depending upon their placement and the prevailing Lagna in a given chart.

Hindu scriptures say that the elimination or control of the bad results originating from adverse planets can be effected by the following actions.

1.    Jap (chanting) and Havan (fire ceremony)
2.    Jap and Stuti (a verse extolling the virtues of a deity)
3.    Donation of appropriate items connected to the planet
4.    The Yantra, gemstone and herbs connected to the planet
5.    Pooja of Lord Vishnu and Shiva
6.    Respect and honor to elderly and erudite people
7.    Honor to the deities, people, animals represented by that planet. For example if Saturn is giving bad results in a horoscope, respect and due wages to servants and poor people will make Saturn happy and reduce the severity of the problems caused by him.

Temporal and transcendental deities

Sun, Moon, air, water and earth are temporal deities and one must never desecrate these. Throwing body waste into water bodies causes problems connected to Moon and water signs. Unnecessary and deliberate pollution of earth and air brings needless problems in one’s daily life.

Sun and Moon can be made favorable by honoring parents and people in the age group of parents. Violence and cruelty (whether physical or mental) as also jealousy increase the adverse results of these two deities.

Control over aggression and inherent negativity of one’s temperament please Sun and Moon. Same results are obtained by giving appropriate respect to women.

Fine remedies for nine planets

Free Vedic astrology article

It is an accepted fact of Hindu philosophy that our existence on earth is very largely dependent upon the Karma (actions) performed by us in the past lives. Good Karma generates pleasurable experiences while bad Karma does exactly the opposite.

Karma is classified into three categories.

1.    द्रिढ़ मूल Dridh Mool or those with strong and deep roots
2.    अद्रिढ़ मूल Adridh Mool or those with weak and shallow roots
3.    द्रिढ़ अद्रिढ़ मूल Dridh Adridh or those with a mixture of the above two.

The first category can be controlled and removed only through deep meditation, self control, self sacrifice and sterling character. The second type is amenable to the use of appropriate gemstones and herbs connected to problem causing planets. The third category requires the use of Mantra, Stuti स्तुति, Yagya यज्ञ (fire ceremony) and donation दान .

It is an accepted tenet of Vedic astrology that dualities like gains and losses, health and disease, victory and defeat, wealth and poverty etc. are indicated by the appropriate planetary combinations or योग that occur in a horoscope. These combination give their good or bad results during the planetary periods of the Yog causing planets. If a दुर्योग or unfavorable combination exist in the birth chart, it becomes very important for the individual to propitiate the planets that are causing the problem.

Similarly, if a favorable Yoga exist, it is an excellent idea to fortify the planets involved so that they may be able to give their best possible results.

Saturn, Mars and Rahu are usually found to bring unpleasant results to people. In some horoscopes they may become Yog Karak or benefit producing planets. In both cases it becomes essential that they be propitiated and pacified so one gets uniform and beneficial results throughout.

Planets which become lords of the sixth, eighth or twelfth houses, especially those which simultaneously own two दुस्थान or bad houses give extremely bad results. For example, Mars becomes the simultaneous lord of two houses of poverty the third and the eighth for Virgo ascendant. Mars thus gives extremely bad results for the Virgo born. This is accentuated by the fact that Mars is a natural enemy of Mercury - the ruler of Virgo. The same is true of Venus for Pisces ascendant.

People born with Virgo ascendant should always propitiate Mars through Fasting व्रत, donations दान, Mantra and Stotra मन्त्र और स्तोत्र. This will bring prosperity and health. One must however never wear Mars’s gemstone Coral, as it will strengthen Mars and invite calamity.

Every planet has a deity, or an avatar of Universal spirit connected to it. Regular chanting of appropriate  Mantra and Stotra connected to these deities attracts happiness, peace and prosperity.
Lord Shiva rules over Sun and Saturn. Moon and Venus are pacified through the worship of Durga or divine mother. Mars is connected to Ganesh while Mercury and Jupiter to Vishnu. Rahu and Ketu are ruled by Hanuman.
