How Navagrahas Change Destiny for New Year 2019
The Godly Planets That Can Be Approached Easily
The Navagrahas are treated as deities in Vedic astrology and have specific powers, nature and characteristic qualities depending on what attributes they offer — good or bad. People revere the planets to fetch good fortunes or if they want to get over certain misfortunes in life. This may be due to doshas in the horoscope or can be due to past life karmas of ancestors. Of the nine planets of Vedic astrology, Sun and Moon are very important followed by Mars, Jupiter and Saturn which are away from the Earth’s orbit. Venus and Mercury come later and they fall within the orbit of Earth, placed very close to Sun. Rahu and Ketu are shadow planets that are insignificant but can cause distress if weakly placed in the natal chart.
Planetary Positions Vital For Astrology Predictions
The nine planets are listed according to the days of the week they favour, namely Sun, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn for Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday respectively. Two other planets Rahu and Ketu are invisible and are assigned the north and south points of the lunar node. All theories and predictions involved in astrology are based on the positions of the planet in a particular bhavas or houses which it inhabits. There are 12 houses and each represents a particular aspect in a person’s life. Depending upon their location in the planetary system, they are considered either beneficent or malefic for an individual. If the positions of planets are beneficent then there’s all round progress and happiness but if the positions are inauspicious then they create disharmony and distress.
