Description about Navagrah—Nine Planets:
In Vedic astrology, Navagraha (nine planets) are some of the major planetary influencers. They are Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, the Sun, the Moon, Rahu (north) and Ketu (south).
Sun: Being the principal planet, Sun (‘Surya’ in Sankrit) is the solar deity. Puranas describe him as having his celestial body of gold along with the chariot pulled by the divine seven horses. These chakras represent seven mystic chakras of the body.
Mars: This planet is under the sovereignty of Bhauma who is the son of Bhumi, Mother Earth. Since ages, Bhuma has been regarded as the lord of war and fights, ruling over Aries and Scorpio.
Mercury: Mangala is the lord of planet Mercury as well as the son of Moon. He is the god of merchandise and guardian of tradesmen.
Moon: Chandra in Sanskrit, Moon as Vedas describe, is called as Soma who is youthful, fine-looking, and blond with his two arms. He holds a club and a lotus. It is said that he moves across the sky by his divine chariot. He represents the mind and the Motherhood.
Jupiter: Called ‘Guru’ in Sanskrit, Jupiter is the spiritual leader of demigods. He is the epitome of piety, morality and spirituality. He is in the mode of goodness standing for knowledge and teaching.
Venus: Shukra in Sanskrit, Venus is the son of Sage Bhrigu and Ushana, as well as the teacher of the Daityas. Asuras, the wicked ones, find their refuge at the feet of Venus. Planet Venus stands for wealth, bliss, pleasure and reproduction.
Saturn: Shani, Saturn, is one of the nine most important divine beings in Vedic astrology. He is the son of Sun. He is in the mode of ‘tamas’—ignorance. Saturn is best known for afflicting agonies as well as fulfilling any desires after a long struggle.
Rahu: He represents the upper part (head) of the evil-minded snake that gulps down the Sun or the Moon, creating an eclipse. Raha-kaal, the period of Raju, in general causes chaos in one’s life as its influence as per Vedic astrology is considered inauspicious.
Ketu: He represents the rear part (tail) of the evil-minded snake. He leaves a colossal impact on one’s life as well as it rewards the native beyond their expectation.
