The Power of The 9 Planets of the Vedic System:
The nine planets of the astrology system in the Vedas have a number of qualities described below, they influence your life according to the position they are in your natal chart, and they have a certain period of time (Dasha) where they are a direct influence in your life. I strongly suggest you consult with a vedic astrologer to learn about how the planets are positioned in your chart.
Vedic remedies are designed to mitigate the harmful effects of the positioning of the planets in your chart at a given moment. The most popular are the use of gemstones and chanting planetary mantras. In this blog and on my YouTube channel you will find at least three different mantras for each planet.
