Planets in Astrology


According to science "Planet is a celestial body that is in orbit around the sun, has sufficient mass for its self-gravity to overcome rigid body force so that it assumes a hydrostatic equilibrium shape, and has cleared the neighborhood around it. There are nine planets i.e The Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu.  In astrology, planets are considered deities,  having their own will and power. These planets are known as NAVGRAHS in Vedic Astrology along with shadow planets RAHU and Ketu.  Jupiter, Kiranbali chanderma, and Venus are benefic or auspicious planets. The Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu are malefic planets. Mercury is neutral. In Vedic astrology, The sun represents the soul, Moon-Mother, and maan, Mercury-communication, and intelligence, Venus-planet of love, luxury, and money, Saturn- Karma, Jupiter-luck and marriage, and Mars-passion, war, courage, and younger brother and sister. They influence human life. They affect our personalities and nature. In astrology, planets help us to understand general and specific human behavior through the influence of planets and celestial objects. Kundli is divided into 12 parts that are called Bhav/houses. Bhav/houses are fixed only on planets and zodiac signs keep on changing. Plnets give different results according to their placement in different houses and Zodiac signs. Some planets give auspicious results in different Bhav/Houses and some planets give inauspicious results according to their nature, relationship, placement, and influence

In Indian astrology, the Sun is usually considered an unauspicious planet. But it's not like that because for whose prayer there are mantras in the Vedas, who is considered Brahman, and who in astrology is the factor of soul and father, cannot be a malefic planet. In Vedic astrology, The Sun represents father, soul, power, fire, bones, eyes east direction, copper metal, govt. jobs, High positions, and designation. The Sun is the fixed lord of the 1st, 9th, and 10th houses in a horoscope. Sun gives disease if it is in the 6th, 8th, and 12th house or conjunct, or aspect by Shani, Rahu, and Ketu.

Among all the planets Saturn is considered an inauspicious planet. According to me, Saturn is not an inauspicious planet because Shani Dev/Saturn is dharmraj/ lord of justice and pays off karma. When Saturn comes as Sadesati, Dhaiya or in Dasha, and Anterdasha, Saturn gives results to a person according to their karma, and most of the time that time period is difficult. And we as a people think that whenever Saturn comes to give trouble, actually we are paying our bad karmas. The planet which has got the title of Dharmaraja, Karamphaldata how can it be inauspicious?

What kind of results will be given by the planet depends on its nature, placement, and relation with that bhav/house, or which side of life that house is related to. It is known that some planets are auspicious, that is, wherever they are placed, they will increase the Karak tatva of that house and some inauspicious planets spoil the Karak tatva/elements of that house.  That's why first of all see what effect each planet shows on different houses. First, we will take the Saturn.

Rahu and Ketu


Rahu is the head of Asura Swarbhanu whom Lord Vishnu killed while giving nectar to the deities in the form of Mohini. Rahu is a shadow and a devil planet in astrology. In more than 90% of horoscopes, the problem is caused by Rahu and Ketu only. The Zodiac Sign assigned to it is Virgo. It is exalted in Gemini at 15 degrees and debilitated in Sagittarius at 15 degrees. It has three aspects/Drishti the 5th, 7th, and 9th. The house in which Rahu sits, or give aspect/Drishti increases the interest in the Karak elements of that house. And the native tries to achieve the same. We see Grandparents, foreign travel, society, skin diseases, itching, poison, chronic diseases, widow, fear, pilgrimage, rude behavior, foreign settlement, extramarital affair, arguments, pain, swelling, etc, cunningness, gambling, cleverness, backstabber, addiction, stones in the kidney, self-respect, enemies, explorer, illegal activities, export, detective, It gives good results in of 3rd, 6th,10th, and 11th house.

It is exalted in Sagittarius at 15 degrees and debilitated in Gemini at 15 degrees. It has three aspects 5th, 7th, and 9th. It is considered Moksha Karaka.

We see dogs, roosters, animals with horns, stammering, intestines, imprisonment, piece of land in foreign, slavery,  religion, astrology, medicines, detachment, writing, monetary gains, winning over enemies, transfer, drugs, occult, urine, prostate, blockages, piles. let's see the results of Ketu in different Houses. The effects of the center are also very mysterious. If Ketu is in the first house then Ketu-related diseases cannot be diagnosed quickly. The quality of Ketu is that whichever house it occupies, it separates the native from the Karak elements of that house.
