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.

The element of cohesion which circulates in our body is termed as Kapha. This Kapha element is responsible for the natural cohesion and lubrication of the bodily pathways. As per the classical Ayurvedic texts such as Charak Samhita, the body is composed of three main elements or Doshas namely Vata, Pitta and Kapha which when present in their natural form, maintain the body and perform the required tasks.
But when any one of them is disturbed, there is an upheaval in the natural system and as a result, we are a victim of a particular disease. This also indicates that some of the positive planetary influences have been distorted and hence, there is a requirement of rectification.
Out of these three elements, the Kapha element makes the move by balancing the cohesion in the body.Kapha forms the major element of importance in the immune and respiratory system of human body. As per ayurvedic texts, the number of diseases due to Kapha disturbance are 10 in number since they involve malfunctioning of the respiratory aspect of the system.
The Kapha element of the body is divided into five types, each of which is located in different parts of the body. The five types of Kapha are
|S.No.||Subtypes of Kapha||Locations||Actions|
|1.||Kledaka||Upper part of stomach||Lubricates the food, helps them to mix with juices, forms a protective covering over the inner line of gastric mucosa.|
|2.||Tarpaka||Head and sinus cavities.||Keep the nose, mouth, eyes moist and well protected.|
|3.||Bodhaka||Tongue||Salivation and primary lubrication of food, Taste identification.|
|4.||Shleshmaka||Joints||Lubrication of joints|
|5.||Avlambaka||Chest, lungs and lower back.||Keeps the chest, lungs, and back very strong, facilitates strong muscles and protects the heart.|
The major place of location of Kapha element is the joints, which is indicated by the synovial fluidwhich is responsible for the greasing and lubrication of the joints.
Kapha element is responsible for functions like taste identification, sweetness, plumpness, cohesion etc. The principal action of Kapha is to regulate the cohesive activity and the soothing activities.
As per Vedic astrology, there are some planets and their associated zodiac signs which are associated with the Kapha element. The planets and the zodiac signs have earth element as their essential principle and hence, they become Kapha planets. They are as follows:
Zodiac signs: Taurus, Cancer, Pisces
Planets: Moon, Venus (primary), Jupiter (primary) Saturn (secondary),
These planets have their central element of support as earth and hence, when they become the Lagna planet or have an effect on the central houses of the Kundali chart, the influence of these planets causes disturbance or regulation of Kapha in the body of the individual. Depending upon their own positions in the Kundali, these planets have their multiple effects on the Kapha element and hence, the effect can be seen in miniscule or macroscopic form.
The Kapha element is affected by many of the processes happening inside the body, primarily digestion. When digestion is impaired, the undigested food becomes cold and increases Kapha production. Therefore, the food must be allowed to digest itself completely so as to allow complete regulation of the Kapha movement.
There are six tastes as per ayurvedic texts, viz. Sweet, Sour, Salty, Bitter, Hot and Astringent. The tastes are beneficial for Kapha balancing are bitter, astringent and hot and the rest three are helpful in Kapha aggravation. Therefore, a diet comprising of hot, bitter and astringent taste shall be helpful in the balancing of Kapha.
