Navagraha: The Planets of Vedic Astrology

Before we evolved and welcomed modern science in our lives, one science originated in the Indian Subcontinent, astrology. Astrology refers to the innate study of the celestial bodies, which are considered heavenly bodies and their impact on human life. 

This started during the Vedic period, when saints and seers like Vishwamitra and Vasistha, including astronomers like Aryabhata-1 and Brahmagupta, studied the celestial bodies minutely. After studying their movements closely, people realise that these celestial bodies impact human lives in various ways. To understand how each celestial body affects an individual, they scripted the Vedic Astrology while discussing the Navagraha in detail. 

Even these days, people follow Vedic Astrology for the betterment of their lives and to bring prosperity and luck to their life. 

According to Vedic Astrology, Navagraha includes these Celestial Bodies in ascending order: 

  1. Sun (Surya)
  2. Moon (Chandra)
  3. Mars (Mangala)
  4. Mercury(Budha)
  5. Jupiter(Brihaspati)
  6. Venus(Shukra)
  7. Saturn(Shani)
  8. Rahu 
  9. Ketu

Do you know that these celestial bodies, also known as Grahas, are believed to affect our life’s phases? Yes! And that’s the reason why still many people  consult an astrologer to understand the placements of each grahas in their birth chart and how they are affecting their  current lives. So, before embarking on a new endeavour or sudden hardships of life, people rely upon Vedic Astrology for guidance. 

Now, scientifically, it has been said that each planet in its orbit holds a certain mass. Now, each mass emits a unique wavelength that makes a major impact on any other masses of life, thus, maintaining the overall energy equilibrium of the system. And that’s how each Grahas affects different life forces, participating in energy transmission to weave the web of life and death. 

And that’s how these Grahas’ energy influences different phases of our lives. 

People worship Navagrahas to improve their lives. It is a matter of one's personal faith in the vedic science and any activity should be done on one’s own discretion. In case you feel any doubt or concern regarding the same, you can refrain from following the ritual.
