Astrological Remedies for Life Problems



Today’s article is based on a contribution by Vasant.  He is an engineer by profession, but dabbles in astrology with a focus on astrological remedies as a passion.

It is very common for people in India to seek astrological remedies for life problems.  Sometimes these remedies cannot completely eliminate a problem but they can help alleviate it to a certain degree. We believe in the theory of incarnation and karma and that all suffering as well as blessings are attributed to our karmas in this life or a previous life. These remedies are for pacifying fruits of negative actions in past lives and also improving current or future life.

There is a wonderful website called astrojyoti dot com, which I like to visit often. It is a gold mine of knowledge and information. I found some interesting information which I would like to share. Sage Parashar is known as the father of Indian/Vedic astrology. Once he was crossing a boat when he looked at the sky and suddenly realized that the astrological configuration at the time was highly auspicious for the conception of a child that would be born with exceptionally high intellect.  Thus was born his son the legendary Ved Vyas-compiler of the 18 puranas, Mahabharat, Bhagvad Gita, the Brahma Sutras and Uttara Mimansa.

For general problems and upliftment in life do the following:

Worship to family deity may also solve most problems.  Offer them their favorite flower or food or some thing or even cloth and milk abishekam when you go there.  Go 2 times a year.  Worship of family deity is important.  If you don’t know your family deity, daily listen to kalabhairav ashtakam 12 to 1 in afternoon. You can play it loud on you tube 36 times.(this is temporary solution).




For Rahu/Ketu:

“Rahu gives first and takes later.  Ketu takes first and gives later.”

Offer 2 ghee lamps(if not red flower garland) and pomegranate to Lord Ganesha on Tuesdays ( pomegranate should be placed on his trunk or his body) and 2 ghee lamps or a lemon garland made of nine clean lemons to Goddess Durga on Saturday during last half an hour of rahu kalam period.  It is auspicious and more powerful to pray to Godess Durga after 6 pm at night/after sunset.

Ask the temple priest to keep sweet chocolate on Sai Baba’s lap and distribute to all every Thursday, Visakam and Pusham day for Jupiter problems or problems created by Guru.

For Saturn problems offer food within your capacity to 5 people on Saturday, Ashwinini nakshathram/constellation, Revathy nakshathram/constellation, full moon day and new moon days. .Remember donation should be to an odd number not even number of people.

For Upliftment:

Offer Parajitham flower garland to lord Vishnu on Wednesday and Friday and lotus and Pomegranate to Mahalaxmi on Friday.

If you have debt offer 16 ghee lamps to Laxmi Narasimha on Tuesday and Swathi constellation.  Offer rice flour abishekam to lord Ganesha on Tuesday. May want to check which planet in your horoscope is causing debt and do remedy for that.

Also offer ghee lamp (or 3 canon ball flowers) to Lord Shiva 5 PM to 6 PM on Saturday for Saturn dosha/problems. Canon ball flower should be offered on the body not on leg/feet. Must be kept on avaduyar.

Lord Hanuman can protect you from Saturn related problems not from sin you created in a previous life.  Auspicious time to go to hanuman temple is  gulika kalam of day. Simple offering to hanuman is roasted gram dal.  Priest has to offer it by mantras and feed him with his hands like mother does to child. This is proper way but some priest don’t do this method.(This is a simple hanuman sadhana (offering roasted gram dal).

Only Lord Shiva can cleanse your sins. So offer worship to Lord Shiva Saturday 5 to 6pm. This is for people born on the 8th, 17th, or 26th also for people having Saturn transit.  Also donate food to poor and needy as per your capacity to five people on days mentioned earlier.

Chant this mantra to cleanse sins: Makaral Namah Shivaya 2000 times after lighting lamp in front of Lord Shiva in a temple on Saturday 5 to 6 pm.

For wealth, offer a ghee lamp with kalakand in it to Lord Kubera in the north direction. This does not work during sada sati.but after complete can do this)

Chanting the Gayatri mantra will curb addictions also remove negative karma.  Gayatri mantra is antidote for kaliyug (the current era that we live in) and people who do meditation.

What is Kaliyug?

In Hinduism Kaliyug is the last of the four eras that we live in which is marked by a significant decay in morals and values, an increase in sickness, disease, wars, crimes, natural disasters.

    This is what he says:
    For now listen to kalabairavar ashtakam loud between 12 to 1 pm 36 times daily. It is temporary solution. Above is to reduce problem given by family deity because you did not pray to them. We have to appease them. Ask priest to pray on behalf of you to Sai baba and ask him to guide you to your family deity. Do every weak this till you get solution.(this is temporary)
