Markesh - a period of bad times

August 15, 2013

Markesh is a bad period when you go through accidents or very rough times. This time is pre-determined as per the position of planets in your birth chart and its signs can also be seen on your palm. Learn how to recognize and apply remedies for this dreadful period.

Please remember that the remedies for Markesh need to be done with great devotion for them to be applicable. Also, it's best to do these remedies before the Markesh period otherwise the remedies may not be possible once the Markesh has become strong on you.

Whenever, you are under the 2nd, 3rd, 7th, 8th, or 11th house's planet(s) influence, it brings about a period of Markesh. You should do these remedies even if you are not going through bad times at the moment.

Some of the effects of Markesh:
- it can give you an illness, which won't be easily cured
- if you do get over an illness, it will be after a lot of problems - money-wise, health-wise, time-wise, effectind mind and boy
- it can cause accidents - not just car accidents, but any kind of accidents.
- you can also go through a great blow to your reputation or character
- it can keep you away from your true friends and relatives
- it can give you a loss in business from which you can't recover
- it gives problems in jobs and people won't support you
- your creativity and talents will disappear or you aren't able to use them
- your willpower/confidence will decrease
- you can take some wrong decisions with which you cause harm to yourself.

Symptoms on Your Hand:

If on your life line, you have a mole developing (if you've also had one, then don't worry - the mole has to be new), then it shows lowering of life force. You should do remedies when the mole is still light.

If the life line is getting cut, then start doing remedies for the planet which will rule in that period of your life

If the line is getting broken, or there is a big net, or if there's a star getting built on it or if you have many lines on it, then you need to worship your isht or you will get into a situation which will be as bad as death.

If you have red moles developing on the life line, then you need to pay special attention to your health and reputation.

If your life line is getting too thick or dark, this shows Markesh and shows weakness of the life force.
If the life line is chain like, this is also not good - it shows some bad effect on your health. So take immediate medical advice if there are any issues.

If a small line from Venus cuts across your life line, it shows you have to do a lot of efforts to improve your life source and live a disciplined life.

If a line from lower part of Moon cuts across the life line, then it shows possible problems related to phlegm, accidents, cells, lungs, or you can take some bad decision in your work that will be bad for your business and relationships. Do remedies for Moon in time.

If any line from Mars, goes across the life line, it shows problems related to bones and blood. Also, there may be problems due to friends.

If there's a mole on the mount of Saturn, it means you need to learn about setbacks in life and how to recover from them. Start praying to Hanuman.

If on the Mount of moon, you have a mole or star from where you have a line going through past the life line, you need to get your birth chart checked and get started on the Markesh related remedies.

Brain line:

If you brain line is breaking, it shows problem related to brain or some loss due to bad decision making. You should take minerals and start meditating to get rid of stress. If a star or mole on the brain line, then you need to start doing "maha mrityunjaya" chant to avoid any problems or weakness.

Thumb: If the thumb starts to bend towards the palm. Example, when you talk, the thumb is leaning on the palm instead of standing up by itself. It shows your willpower is dwindling. You can't understand things, are getting depressive, eyes are becoming weak, and your dependence on others may be increasing.

A broken heart line is also not a good sign of if a big line from it crosses and cuts the life line then that is also not a good sign.


  • Give yourself to your isht and tell them that you don't want anything from them and that you will only do what they ask of you.
  • Never celebrate your birthday when going through Markesh. Just do Rudra-abhishek and offer salted food items.
  • If your child is born in Markesh, then offer salted food - not sweets after the child is born. This shouldn't be done by the parents or grandparents, others can do it if they want to. Also, don't celebrate an occasion that is to do with the child's birth for a year. When the state of full Markesh is reached, you should donate 1.25kg of coal of Saturdays for 11 days.
  • Don't keep trash in the house as it effects the elders.
  • First chappati in the home should be left for the cow.
  • If your mouth is drying too much, start offering water to the Sun and doing "aditya hridya stora paath" 3 times a day.
  • Donate wheat for sure on the day of the planet that Markesh results from. Do this on Sunday if the Markesh is due to Sun; on Monday if from Moon or Ketu, on Tuesday if from Mars, on Wednesday if from Mercury, on Thursday if from Jupiter, on Friday if from Venus, on Saturday if from Shani or Rahu.
  • Donate shoes as soon as you can.
  • If there are quarrels in the home, then put mustard oil on the chappati that you give to cow.
  • Stop eating bananas and donate them instead.
  • Before Markesh comes, get rid of your greed and ego.
  • Wear "Arjun tree's bark" in a white thread around your neck on a Sunday.
  • Reduce your salt intake - especially if it's from Shani or Sun.

Do remedies for the Markesh planet in the following way depending on the planet responsible.

1. If Markesh from Sun - start donating Shani related items; don't take anything for free from anyone; donate coconut oil and almonds to a religious place; do Shani mantra; take care of your elder brother and a black cow; offer water to Sun; you have to care for father or people who are like your father; don't stay in a home where the entrance is in the South.

2. If Markesh from Moon - do serious meditation for Shivji; establish a "paara" or a silver Shivlingi in the home and offer them water, honey and milk;  do the mantra "om shreem shrom soumaya namaha" as much as possible; donate water; don't waste water

3. If Markesh from Mars - take blessings from a widowed woman; wear silver in your neck

4. If Markesh from Mercury - take ghee + khaand + honey in an earthen pot and bury it somewhere every Wednesday until you have Markesh or bury some red things (clothes, red lentils) in a cemetery

5. If Markesh from Jupiter - donate yellow rice to temple every Thursday and donate white rice to temple every Friday

6. If Markesh from Venus - take a copper coin or blue flowers and throw into flowing river for 43 days - do this remedy if there's a problem with some disease; never pay for someone's bail (from jail; or swear by someone (sougand in Hindi); don't commit to anything on anyone's behalf

7. If Markesh from Saturn - never put oil on your forehead; do a tilak of milk or yoghurt; don't touch the soles of your feet with the floor while taking a shower;

8. If Markesh from Rahu - if it's in your 2nd, 3rd, 7th, 8th, 11th, or 12th house, then make sure you throw 4 coconuts in flowing water when you're going under the Rahu period (dasha); eat food in the place its made; don't think too much; don't be stubborn; don't get angry

9. If Markesh from Ketu - do saffron tilak regularly; throw a tiny bit of turmeric in water everyday

Markesh does not effect you: if you have a box/square on your life line which contains a mole or if you have a Mars line along with the life line

A few Moon sign specific remedies if you're going through the Markesh period:

Aries - stay away from red colored clothes, donate coconuts for 5 Tuesdays

Taurus - be aware of fire and chemicals and on Saturdays, throw wooden coal in flowing water in the evening.

Gemini - do chant of "om rudraay namaha" until Markesh lasts, donate black clothes to some worker/very poor person for 5 Tuesdays; don't drive late at night (especially for women)

Cancer - donate white or red clothes to 5 workers on a Tuesday and start praying regularly

Leo - give water to Sun; make some wheat flour dough and put some mustard oil on them and feed them to a cow until your Markesh is running

Virgo - then give food to 5 leprosy patients in the name of your isht for 5 Saturdays regularly; donate green clothes for 43 days/or 43 Wednesdays to girl children - it can even be some hankerchief, shawl, anything green.

Libra - donate wheat on Fridays until the Markesh is gone

Scorpio - be careful of fire and chemicals; donate bricks to some worker or to some ashram; do Hanuman Baahuk paath everyday

Saggitarius - donate some iron sometimes; donate some expensive clothes (what you consider expensive) at least once - you can also gift it to someone; donate some some black dal (urad)

Capricorn - donate to leprosy patients as much as you can; drink water while driving; donate black clothes anonymously

Aquarius - always donate things for Shani; do chants of "om namaha shivay" as much as you can; donating rudraaksh beads (has to be original) is also beneficial for you

Pisces - do chants of "om rudraaya namaha"; offer coconut to Shivji for 5 Saturdays; don't wear red or black clothes;

Some general observations of bad times for the general public:

Sometimes, the sky turns very red in the evenings and it stays this way for a few days, then become alert. It shows a sign of big fire, vehicular accidents, or some big violence.

If birds are making noise at night and leaving the area, it shows an upcoming natural disaster.

If the animals that live underground are coming out and running away, this also shows some great disaster.

If the dog is very anxious for a few days at then, then do rudra-abhishek.

If the dogs in your neighborhood are fighting a lot and cry, it shows some big problems for that area, start praying to God.

If the birds disappear from the sky, this is also bad.

If the ocean is becoming restless, then it shows some typhoon may be coming.

If ants are queuing up with food on them and disappear suddenly then it shows excess rain.

If there are 5 Saturdays in a Moon-month, then it shows great ups and downs in the share market, especially when Mercury is retrograde (vakri).
