Navagraha: Remedies For Weak Planets


Navagraha, also known as the Nine Planets, is an essential concept in Hindu astrology and Vedic tradition. These planets have a significant impact on human life and play a crucial role in shaping various aspects, including health, wealth, career, relationships, and overall well-being. The Navagrahas include the Sun (Surya), Moon (Chandra), Mars (Mangal), Mercury (Budha), Jupiter (Brihaspati), Venus (Shukra), Saturn (Shani), Rahu (the North Node of the Moon), and Ketu (the South Node of the Moon). Each planet represents specific qualities and governs specific zodiac signs.

When a planet is weak or afflicted in a birth chart, it can lead to various challenges and imbalances in life. The effects of weak planets can manifest in different areas, such as health issues related to the specific planet, career setbacks, financial difficulties, and strained relationships. However, astrology also offers remedies to strengthen weak planets and mitigate their malefic effects. Let’s explore the meaning and remedies for weak planets associated with the Navagrahas:


The Sun represents the soul, vitality, willpower, and leadership. A strong Sun fosters confidence, ambition, and success in life. However, a weak Sun can lead to a lack of self-esteem, health problems related to the heart and eyes, and difficulties in career and social recognition.


  • Chant the Aditya Hridaya Stotram or Gayatri Mantra dedicated to the Sun daily.
  • Offer water to the rising Sun every morning.
  • Wear Ruby (Manikya) gemstone after consulting with an astrologer.

It is essential to consult with a qualified astrologer before implementing any remedies. Astrological remedies are meant to reduce the malefic effects of weak planets and enhance their positive influences.

The effectiveness of remedies also depends on one’s faith, sincerity, and intention while performing them. Remember that astrology offers guidance, but one’s choices and actions ultimately shape their destiny.
