How do astrological remedies work
What is the secret behind the astrological remedies? Why, how and when do those remedies effect us? Are there any remedies that we should continue doing based on our Moon signs? Do we think that we'll never face hard times? If life is good, will it remain the same always? Will there be no bad changes to our nice life - ever? And if there are changes happening that will bring about some unwanted circumstances and we are unaware of them, what should we do? This article will try to answer these questions.
- Often we hear of ways to heal/maintain our bodies based on our body constitution. In the same way, there are many types of astrological remedies that we can do based on our Moon signs to make sure that we don't fall prey to bad times. Remedies taken in a timely manner can sometimes stop any problems from occurring or bring us out of the bad times with less efforts. If you have the desire to come out, then the remedies will surely help.
- God has allowed you to write your own fate if you try.
- We are all influenced by the radiation given off by planets.
- Balanced radiation effects on our aura makes us healthy and fortunate. The bad effects of those radiations make us unhealthy and unfortunate. A lower dose of radiation from these planets or even too much radiation from them causes disbalances in our mind. Hence our mind itself is the cause of our bad fortunes. Our mind influences/makes us take bad decisions and do bad things on purpose for which we get punished through bad fortune. Planets' radiations effect our thought process by influencing the energies around us which results in good/bad effets by us and for us.
- The radiation effects our health too, so it's important that you also do remedy for the planet along with the medicine. When we do the remedies for the planet, then the radiation that enters us becomes more balanced which gives us positive effects. Just as the mind is responsible for our bad fortunes, doing remedies to our mind will also cause a positive effect on the planets' radiation effecting us. The remedies for the mind also help in succeeding in your career/work.
For example, if your Shani/Saturn is negative, then stop talking bad about others and start thinking that you wil get success regardless of any problems - Saturn will not do anything bad to you or even if it does then the effects will be reduced.
- Another example, if Venus and Jupiter are giving bad results then they cause problems in our household or the love from children. If you have kids, then they may be ill or you may not get to enjoy their company. It may bring you sweets, but you may not be able to eat it due to diabetes; or you may get wealthy but will not be able to enjoy it. Jupiter may also bring a time when you'll be lonely and alone. Remedy: say heart-felt sorry to that woman whom you have harmed and you know whom you have caused harm. Feed green grass to 100 cows once. Take responsibility to educate a child who is of the opposite sex than you - it should be an anonymous donation. You can also donate anonymously to a school or temple. The person whom you may have deceived - whether by breaking her heart or causing monetary or repute loss, even if it was due to a helpless situation, surely help that person.
- If you have a habit of complaining, doubting others, criticizing, or doing unnecessary competition, then it causes bad effects from Rahu and Shani. It causes us to be in a state of jealousnes and being stressed despite being wealthy. Be happy to keep Rahu and Shani in check. These habits prove even more helpful during the effects of Saade-saati or under Rahu/Shani's period in our life.
When should remedies be done:
1. Your Moon sign and your main planet (mukhya graha) should always be kept strong and positive.
2. In bad times
3. In normal times
Types of remedies:
1. Sadhana/bhakti/meditation is the best remedy, but it's not easy and it needs to be learnt step-by-step over a long period of time.
2. Change in behavior and how you live.
3. Donate food.
4. Gifting and doing donations
5. Medicinal plants
7. Precious stones
9. Taking a bath
10. Relationships - ex. if the 7th house is responsible for a good fate, then you will not start succeeding in life until you find a partner/get married
Let's look at the basic remedies for each Moon sign. These need to be done regularly, just like you may need to maintain a certain diet for some illness. These remedies will help even when all else fails:
