There are innumerable astronomical bodies in the universe, but in astrology 9 planets and 27 nakshatras have been taken as the main bodies around which the whole science of astrology revolves. Based on the motion of these planets, time calculations, preparation of Panchag, formation of a horoscope and various astrological events and fallacies are studied.

In astrology a total of nine planets Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn are considered as main planetary bodies. Apart from these 9 planets two shadow planets that put their strong influence on human lives are Rahu and Ketu. 

The position or placement of these planets in the birth chart or horoscope affects different aspects of the life of the native. These are strong enough to fore tell what type of life a person will live, his quantum of wealth, his level of education, his health conditions and what not!

Planets are the heavenly objects that largely influence the human fate. By studying the placements of these planets, it can be accurately predicted whether a person is going through a happy or sad phase of life based on the auspiciousness or inauspiciousness of his dasha periods. 

An astrologer can also tell about various doshas or yogas as may be formed in his horoscope. Precise information about them certainly helps the native to take timely actions and save himself from any disasters bound to happen in the future. 

If a planet is malefic or troublesome to the native then after a careful analysis of the horoscope remedies may be suggested by an astrologer. These duly suggested remedies can ward off the ill effects of these inauspicious planets to a great extent. These faults or troubles that may arise in our lives are nothing but our accumulated past karmas. While it’s true that we can’t escape the bad deeds of our past births but surely their effects may be reduced effectively if we perform religious sacrifices, pooja, chanting mantras and donations as prescribed for each of the planets. Getting an online kundali is yet another good option.

It is said that if we remain aware or mindful about our thoughts and deeds we can not only mend our past karmas but can accumulate good karmas for the future births as well. Small amendments and alterations in our behaviour towards others may do wonders. Philanthropy towards living beings and observing non harming attitude towards nature go a long way in safeguarding us from our past deeds while bestowing divine blessings. Along with this, you can also chant varied Vedic mantras specified for each of these nine planets.

Our ancient texts have stated following mantras for the nine planets:


Surya Mantra - Om Suryaya Namah -ऊँ सूर्याय नम:

In astrology, Sun is called the king of all the planets. It is also considered the strongest and authoritative planet in the science of predictive astrology. Generally speaking, the planet Sun in astrology symbolizes power, position and authority. It also represents our soul, honour, principles, government and father along with other things. The importance of the Sun lies in the fact that life can’t be traced on this earth without its presence. The seasonal transformation and occurrence of day and night is all due to this ultimate source of life.

 Garnering his blessings is very important and in order to get prosperity in life. Offering water to Sun God and chanting the Surya mantra helps in receiving his grace. A strong sun in a horoscope affirms name, fame and wealth to the native.

Chandra Mantra - Om Som Somay Namah - ऊँ सोम सोमाय नम:

Moon is considered Queen of the Solar System. According to Vedic System of AstrologyMoon is our mother, mind and a strong moon in the chart gives great mental power and prosperity. In predicting the human fate, the Moon plays a significant role and it is so important that the horoscope is analysed from the Moon also called Chandra Lagna.

Since moon plays an imperative role in the Vedic astrology, it is very important that Moon does not have any malefic afflictions. The moon signifies our mentality and hence any afflictions of Moon will directly affect our brain. Problems like mental disorder or discord, illness to the mother, weakness, lack of funds all are the results of a weak moon. This will eventually influence our creativity, imagination, career, profession and whole life. Moon is so important that it forms many yogas in a chart. So, it is pertinent to strengthen the Moon.

So, if one has a weak or malefic moon remedies must be followed as suggested by an astrologer. Chanting the vedic mantra of the moon certainly adds strength to it while reducing its malefic effects.

Mangal Mantra - Om Bhaum Bhaumaye Nama- ऊँ भौम भौमाये नमः

Mars is the planet of our desires, actions, energy, passion, war, aggression, sex, and assertion. A strong Mars brings courage and leadership qualities to the native. But if Mars is weak or afflicted in a horoscope, the person becomes lethargic, lacks courage, use abusive language and suffers from uncontrolled anger and frustration. In order to receive the blessings of this red planet, one should chant this Mangal Mantra and perform remedies as suggested by the astrologer after thorough analysis of the horoscope.
