According to Vedic astrology, good and bad karmas, supernatural and spiritual influences are represented by the planets.

The Navgrah Yantra effectively eliminates the negative effects of Planets and blessings of the deities of each planet flows when the Navagraha Yantra is worshipped.

Moon: Chandra in Sanskrit, Moon as Vedas describe, is called Soma. He 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.
Mars(Mangal): This planet is under the sovereignty of Bhauma, who is the son of Bhumi, the Mother Earth. Since ages, Bhuma has been regarded as the Lord of war and fights and a planet which rules over Aries and Scorpio.
Mercury(Budha): Mangala is the Lord of planet Mercury as well as the son of Moon. He is the God of merchandise and guardian of tradesmen.
