The Venus planet is considered as one of the nine planets in the Kundali chart or the horoscope. The shukra planet is the son of Maharishi Bhrigu, hence gets the name Bhargava. It is the central planet which keeps the person in this material world when present in the good position or with a friend planet. The planet represents sense pleasure, luxury and love in the person’s nature.
It is a planet of luxurious life and hence it governs the refined attributes, romance, beauty, sensuality, passion, comforts, luxuries, jewelry, wealth, art, music, dance, season of spring, rains and the bed-room. If shukra is in the right location in the birth chart, it makes such a person prone to aristocratic luxuries. Other auspicious results include success in love life, good and charming physique, profits in jewellery busniess etc. Venus is considered to be auspicious for jewellers, love makers, couple, musicians, artists etc.
On the other hand, Venus gives inauspicious results if it is debilitated or in an enemy sign or if it is in a malefic position. Inauspicious results may include eye affliction, stones in bladder, disturbed marriage life, poverty and debt, disturbed sexual life, defame, diseases in ovary and menstrual troubles etc.
Taurus and Libra are Venus’s signs. If these signs are in ascendant or if Venus is strong in the ascendant or if Venus’s sign is the birth sign of a person, then a person is influenced by Venus. A person influenced by Venus has a loving nature. Such a person has a charming built, melodious voice and a good sense of sense pleasure. In a human body, Venus rules genitals, mouth and chest. With the presence of a weak Venus, there might be some lack of function of genitals and the mind of a person. Such a person may even suffer from a mental illness.
Venus can also be associated with problems related to manhood, womanhood, stomach, intestines etc. In order to be free from the inauspicious results of Venus, various different things associated with Venus can be donated. These include yoghurt, ghee, sugar, pearls, silver, sweets made of milk, sweets that are white in color, or white clothes. If Venus is very negative it shows in the form of one not getting the benefits of a married life, or marriages that break, or the lack of children, or no girl children – in these cases, make sure you do kanyadaan – donation for a girl’s wedding. The donations can be made to an elderly woman, the people who work at your in-laws, to the priest, or to cows and crows.

For thousands of years, Astrology has been used to know one’s future or to act as a guiding post while making important life changing decisions. The classical texts of Astrology like Brihat Parashar Hora Shastra which is regarded as the Bible of Indian Astrology and on which all subsequent works of Indian Astrology are based was written thousands of years ago by sage Parashar. Its oldest printed version is a composite work of 71 chapters, in which the first part (chapters 1-51) dates to the 7th and early 8th centuries, and the second part (chapters 52-71) dates to the latter part of the 8th century.
All the classical texts of Indian Astrology describe the 3rd, 6th and 11th houses in a horoscope (also known as the “trishadaya” houses ) as the “evil houses” in a horoscope.
Human society all over the world has evolved and changed in the thousands of years since the Classics on Indian Astrology were written. It thus becomes clearly evident that if an Astrologer in today’s age takes the literal meaning of what is written in the classical texts and applies it without using his own common sense in attempting to make predictions today, the predictions will not only be totally wrong, but could cause huge financial, mental and emotional losses for his client. Recently, some incidents have taken place where Astrologers have advised clients based on the literal meaning in classical texts as interpreted by the Astrologer and where the client has sued the Astrologer in a Court of Law, or in some cases filed a Police complaint against the Astrologer for malpractice and cheating due to losses suffered by following the Astrologer’s advice.
We will now see why a majority of Astrologers fail to predict anything correctly in the modern age which is due to the evolution of human society and also due to a failure on the part of the Astrologer who has misinterpreted the classical texts while at the same time failing to keep up with this evolution of human society.
For example the classical texts all say that the Mahadashas (MD’s) and the Antardashas (AD’s) of the Trikone lords (houses 1, 5 and 9 are the Trikone houses in a horoscope) are very auspicious for a person and “Yogakarak’’and that the MD’s and AD’s of Trikone lords will make him very happy, give him very good health and will fulfil all his desires. Now, let us dissect this interpretation and apply it in today’s context. The MD of the 1st house lord will give a person good health, strength, mental happiness and a good character. The MD of the 5th house lord will make a person intelligent, will lead to love affairs and will also give him/her happiness from children if married. It might also improve luck to an extent as the 5th house is the “secondary house of luck” as it is the 9th house counted from the house of luck which is the 9th house. The MD of the 9th house lord will make a person lucky, will make him religious and make him go on pilgrimages and improve his relations with his father.
We have seen above what the MD’s of the Trikone lords have to offer. Then what about materialistic success, money and power which everyone craves for in today’s world ?
They are nowhere to be found in the trikones it seems. And therein lies the answer why most Astrologers fail to understand the nuances of making predictions in today’s uncertain times. What today’s society wants viz money, power, materialistic success, name and fame is nowhere to be found in the Trikones. Or to put it the other way round, the needs and aspirations of human society when the Classical texts on Astrology were written and the needs and aspirations of society today are entirely different.
Now, coming back to the question of which houses then bestow money, power, fame and materialistic success which we all crave for today, we get the most unlikeliest of answers – all the things we crave for in today’s modern age are given by the MD of the houses which are termed as “evil houses” or “trishadaya” houses in a horoscope by the classical texts – the 3rd house, the 6th house, and the 11th house. (The AD’s are much shorter in duration compared to MD’s, so actually the benefits given by these houses will accrue during their MD’s). Let us now see how so called “evil houses” can benefit a person so much. The MD of the 3rd house lord gives a person the self confidence and the courage to take on all the challenges of the modern world. Without having self confidence or courage, a person can achieve nothing. The negativity associated with this house in classical texts of Astrology is only because the MD of the 3rd house may make a person overconfident and bombastic. The 6th house according to classical texts is the house of disease, debt, competition and enemies. But the MD of the 6th house lord will give a person the power to defeat or suppress his enemies, to surge ahead in competition and to establish his brand name in the market. Then the only two things negative about the 6th house are disease and debt. And that is because if a person runs after material success, he has to work hard and as a consequence, health suffers. As for debt, businessmen do have to take loans to run their businesses. Without Bank finance, it is impossible to run many businesses today. So in a way, if one does not get a little into debt, one cannot progress or succeed in today’s age. Now, we come to the MD of the 11th house lord. The classical texts say that the 11th house is the house of desire fulfilment. The 11th house is also known as the house of gains or profits as it gives gains or profits. The only reason why classical texts are negative about the 11th house is because the 11th house lord’s MD increases a person’s desires to such an extent that it may become impossible to fulfil those desires. But then why will a person work hard unless he has some desires to fulfil ? This is exactly the very premise on which Capitalism is built – individuals will work hard to earn well for themselves to fulfil their materialistic desires and thereby live happy lives. Economic theory also says that “human wants are unlimited.”
Thus we see how the MD’s of the so called “evil” or “trishadaya” houses can power the growth of an individual in today’s modern age and times. In fact, a person can achieve materialistic success and make lots of money only during the MD’s of the “trishadaya” houses. If a person is not getting MD’s of “trishadaya” houses in his horoscope, he can never achieve material success in the modern world. If the lord of a “trishadaya” house is a natural malefic like Saturn, Mars or Sun, and the malefic planet is also placed in its own house, the results given are simply amazing during its MD. For example in a horoscope with Virgo Ascendant (Virgo lagna) , the 6th house lord will be Saturn and if Saturn is also placed in the 6th house, then during Saturn’s MD, the person will touch great heights by crushing all his opponents and competition, he will conquer illness, he will wipe out all his debts and he will establish a brand name for himself. There are two other houses in a horoscope apart from the “trishadaya” houses which can also give wealth and success in one’s career or profession. One is the second house which is known as the house of wealth. But it is also a “marak” or death inflicting house. Therefore, during the MD of the second house, one will make good money, but one’s health may suffer and even death is possible. The other house which gives progress in career or profession thereby resulting in material success is the 10th house. Good progress in career or profession is seen during the MD of the 10th house lord as well.
Thus we see that the rules of the game have changed for making Astrological predictions in today’s modern and complex times. Traditional Astrologers, if they are out of tune with today’s reality or Astrologers who wrongly interpret the ancient texts while putting theory into practice will be totally at sea in predicting good or bad times for their clients. To deliver accurate and pinpoint predictions in today’s age, an Astrologer has to be a real professional who also keeps himself updated with all the analytical tools of Astrology like the KP system Asktakvarga and Shadbal and he needs to have a finger on the pulse of society as well.

From times immemorial, people are scared of Saturn or “Shaani Dev”. In the Indian context, whenever anything goes wrong in our lives or there is a delay in any auspicious work or a person is in any sort of difficulty, we tend to blame it on “Shaani”. This is something that people in India have been hearing since childhood and Saturn or “Shaani” has thus become a much maligned planet.
However, it is not always true that Saturn is the cause of all our problems. Saturn can be one of the most beneficial planets for someone born under Libra (Tula) lagna or Taurus (Vrisabh) lagna. Saturn can also be very beneficial to someone with Gemini (Mithun) lagna if placed in his horoscope in the 9th or the 10th house. Saturn can give excellent results to someone with Virgo (Kanya) lagna also if placed in his horoscope’s 5th, 9th or 10th house. Saturn also gives good results when placed in the 7th or 12th house of a horoscope. When Saturn is beneficial, it can give a person Power, fame, wealth beyond imagination and all the material comforts and pleasures of life. In fact, in Indian Astrology, it is said that no auspicious event can occur without the blessings of Jupiter and green signal from Saturn. For example, we can accurately predict the timing of marriage from the transit of Jupiter and Saturn. If a person’s “dasha” is indicating marriage and we want to know the exact timing of the marriage, we only need to see whether Jupiter and Saturn are transiting over his or her horoscope’s 7th house or aspecting the horoscope’s 7th house in transit. Marriage will happen when the 7th house is activated in transit by Jupiter and Saturn. Saturn stays in a Zodiac sign for two and half years and Jupiter stays in a Zodiac sign for a year. Saturn may delay, but it never denies. It is the planet of justice. A peculiarity of Saturn about which a majority of Astrologers are unaware of is that if it is placed in exaltation in a horoscope in Libra (Tula), it gives bad results and if it is placed in debilitation in Aries (Mesh), it gives good results. In case of all other planets, the case is the reverse.
Another feared phenomenon caused by Saturn’s transit is “Sade Sati”. When Saturn transits over the natal moon in a horoscope and in both the houses next to the the natal moon, it causes “Sade Sati”. “Sade Sati” lasts for seven and a half years. “Sade Sati”, although being troublesome for anyone under its influence is more troublesome for the fiery sign lagnas – Aries (Mesh), Leo (Simha) and Sagittarius (Dhanu). It can be very troublesome for Cancer (Kark) lagna too. When a person is under the influence of “Sade Sati”, he faces a lot of mental tension, hurdles in every step of life, disturbed family life, financial problem and irritation and despair in day to day life. With proper remedies, the ill effects of “Sade Sati” can be neutralized to a great extent.
But a person facing the brunt of Saturn’s wrath under “Sade Sati” should understand that Saturn is a “Karmic” planet which gives us the results of the karmas of previous births in this life and Saturn is a great teacher. Saturn’s “Sade Sati” comes into our lives for a cosmic reason and that is to impart the lessons of life to a person. Troubles caused by “Sade Sati” will teach a proud person to become more humble and a spendthrift the value of money. Saturn’s “Sade Sati” will cleanse the negativity from a person and leave him a better person at the end of the “Sade Sati” period of seven and a half years.
Thus we see that Saturn is not an evil and malevolent planet as it is made out to be, but a great teacher and a planet which imparts divine justice.

The planetary positions determine the strength and weakness of the horoscope and how the planets influence the directions and sub-directions in Vastu Shastra. Vastu Doasha represents a flaw in particular direction and a corresponding fault in the vibrations of a particular planet. The remedial measure in such cases aims to enhance the positivity of a planet and reduces the malefic effects, to attain harmony and balance with the natural force.
Sphatik or quartz crystals and crystal beads have their own importance as purifier or during meditative chanting. Because of the silica base, Quartz crystals have a very stable energy and a very precise and regular frequency. The immaculate structure responds to energies such as light, heat, sound, bio-electricity, and even waves. So the crystals are considered valuable due to their ability to respond to the thought waves and bio-electric energies; which helps in rebalancing the body and various troublesome situations in life. Charged crystal sets up a powerful energy field which encourages the person’s own subtle to vibrate at finer frequencies and clean away the dense negative vibrations. Another effective remedy is of crystal charged with Reiki. It is most effective to remove Vastu dosha.
Any mantra associated with a specific planet adds its vibrations to the lost portion of the aura to attain cosmic balance in human body and mind. The various bad effects of a faulty direction can be removed by chanting the mantra of the planet governing that direction. Mantra is the key to access certain functions or programmes of your brain for performing a specific task, such as harmonising labour relations, improving your cash flow, opening new product lines, attracting new clients, etc. The effectiveness of the mantra depends on the correct pronunciation too. Sound energy generated by chanting of mantras correctly and with correct pronunciation imparts a specific rhythm to the atmospheric atoms, for charging the creative energies of the entire space.
A yantra is a symbol or diagram that eliminates the harmful effects in its vicinity. By chanting of beej mantras, performing havans and other rituals, the yantra go through a series of purification and energising processes which make them potent to ward off negative vibrations in the surroundings. Specific Vastu yantras propitiating Vastu purush with mantras of Vastu shanti can be used or Nav Grih Vastu yantras for specific directional faults can also be used as per the direction wise classification of the planets. Other yantras like bagula mukhi yantra, matsya yantra, kanakdhara yantra, shri yantra and kuber yantra can be used to dispel Vastu faults as well as usher in wealth and prosperity in home, business, shop, office or factory.

Mars or Mangal is the ferocious planet that depicts energy, motivation, will-power, self-confidence and ego. Mangal Graha is also the ruler of our carnal desires and our basic animalistic nature. Mangal bellies the impulse and ensures that people act before they contemplate. The raw, impatient, rash, aggressive and adventurous side of people is driven by the planet, along with our competitive streak. It is related to Tuesday and is also known as the ‘planet of action’ in our horoscope.
What is Mangal or Manglik dosh?
The placement of planet Mars in 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th, 12th house from ascendant, Moon and Venus of horoscope is the scenario called as Mangal or Manglik dosha. This holds utmost important in our Vedic astrology, especially at the time of marriage. Therefore, if one wishes to lead successful marital life, position of Mars in the horoscope needs to be analysed thoroughly.
Effects of Mangal Dosh:
- When Mars is in the first house, conflicts and violence in marriage is predicted.
- When Mars is in the second house, it affects the person’s family causing trouble in marriage and profession.
- When Mars is in the fourth house, the person fails to succeed on the professional front, switching jobs.
- When Mars is in the seventh house, the excess energy within makes the person ill-tempered. Cordial relationship with family members is almost impossible because of the domineering nature.
- When Mars is in the eighth house, being alienated from elders, the person loses paternal property.
- When Mars is in the tenth house, the person suffers from mental problem and incurs financial losses besides having enemies.
Remedies for Mangal Dosh:
- If there are similar afflictions in the horoscopes of the boy and the girl, the ‘Manglik dosha’ gets cancelled.
- If one of them has Mars in the ‘Lagna’, Second, Fourth, Seventh, Eighth or the Twelfth House and the other has Saturn or ‘Rahu / Ketu’ in the ‘Lagna’, Second, Fourth, Seventh, Eighth or the Twelfth House, then too, the defects get cancelled.
- Ritualistically if the mangalik first marries a Banana tree, Peepal tree or a silver / gold idol of Lord Vishnu, then the negative effect is nullified.
- Fasting on Tuesday is considered to be a very effective remedy.
- Chanting Navgraha Mantra (Mangal Mantra) or Hanuman Chalisa on Tuesdays can produce favourable results. Chanting Gayatri manta 108 times a day is also effective.
- Visiting Navagraha temples, performing pujas and visiting Lord Hanuman temples on Tuesdays are effective ways of mitigating the ill-effects of mangal dosha.
- Certain things like sword and knife are offered to propitiate Mars. Besides Foods like lenthil Daal, wheat bread, red silk and red stones are offered to Mars as an act of pacification.
- Wear a gold ring with a red coral on the ring finger of the right hand, to reduce the malefic effect.
- A Mangalik is advised to get married after the age of 28 because the intensity of the dosha comes down with age.

We have commonly heard about the varied malefic defects in our birth chart, some of which are created depending upon our karmas and planetary positions; one of which is ‘Kaal Sarp Yog or Kaal Sarp Dosh’.
What is Kaal Sarp Yog?
In Hindu horoscope, if all planets are between Rahu and Ketu shadow planets, the person is considered to be afflicted with Kaal sarp yog. A complete Kaal sarp yog is formed when exactly half the natal chart is unoccupied by planets. Exclusion of even one single planet outside the Rahu-Ketu axis does not signify Kaal sarp yog.
Kaal in Hindi means death whereas Sarpa means serpant or snake. Rahu and Ketu are considered serpent in astrology and hence when all planets of a kundli falls between these two planets, it ought to create dangerous effects on the person suffering from it.
Why is it formed?
Though it depends upon individual to individual yet the past karmas and their negative effects are a major reason of this malefic yog. It is said that the effect of this yog lasts for about 47 years or even more. Effects of this yog remains longer when Rahu placed in 5th, 8th, & 12th house and shorter when Rahu is placed in 3rd, 6th, & 11th house.
Impacts of Kaal Sarp Yog:
- This dosh eliminates the positive effects in life and leads to disturbance and struggle.
- One suffers from mental imbalance, loss of sleep, anxiety, and lack of self-confidence.
- Major issues like marriage, property, child, finance and so on, are often disturbed and delayed.
- The native is not able to reap the fruits of his hard work and does not get full credit of his contribution.
- The native also suffers from chronic health issues and low immunity.
- Unhealthy relation with family and friends, treachery from colleagues is also evident.
Kaal Sarp Dosh Mantra:
The Mantra given below is the Gayatri Mantra for Kaalsarpyog or Kaal Sarp Dosh mantra:
||Om Bhjangeshaaya Vidmahe, Sarprajya Dhimahi, Tanno Nagah Prachodaya||
Thus to eliminate the disastrous effects of this dosh or at least lower the effects if not eliminated completely, Kal Sarp Dosh Nivaran puja is one of the remedy. Adoring Lord Hanuman and feeding ants or fishes, should be done.

The varied perspectives about gemstones and their relevance are quite intricate as more than rational justification, the personal testing is considered appropriate. Highlighting the craze of gemstones we head back to the great hall in which beautiful empress Cleopatra had received the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar, which was decorated with furniture studded with rare gems and Jewels. Even in recent history, the Peacock throne of the Moghuls was studded with jewels of all kind and had attracted many invaders. So be it any era throughout the world, the magical effects of gems have been witnessed.
Being of different colours and lustre, the gemstones work on the concept of colour therapy. The seven colours of VIBGYOR along with the infrared and ultra violet invisible colours, affects the human system differently. It is important to note that the wavelength of coloured light emanating from the nine planets is believed to match those radiating from each planet’s corresponding gemstone. A particular stone absorbs all kind of solar and cosmic energy and allows only a particular type of energy to pass through it; which is then absorbed by the body. If prescribed properly, this actually helps the individual in restoring the body balance and attaining self-improvement.
Other relevance of Gemstones:
The glittering gemstones are considered the secret to happiness, fortune, health and monetary bliss in life. As the ancient Gemological texts of India explain that white light is actually composed of nine colours, symbolic of the nine planets, so the particular planets radiate their energy and influence through colours. Depending upon the position of the moon sign in a particular sign of the Zodiac at the time of birth, a particular gem is allotted. Now theses gemstones are not a sure shot success mantra, if you think, but it adds on to the continuous effort of an individual and further helps to receive positive fruits. Stones have a capacity to remove the hurdles caused by faulty positioning of planets, which may halt the success in one’s life.
