The 23 Navagraha Mantras to Improve Your Health

Our ancestors believed that astrology and the movement of heavenly bodies in our solar system, can influence and affect our personal, emotional, financial and physical lives.

According to Indian (or Vedic) Astrology, the nine planets of our solar system, called Navagrahas, can be used as powerful healing tools by using Navagraha-hymns or mantras, to teach us how to live harmoniously with the planets and their energies. Each of the nine planets can play a positive or challenging role in one’s life, based on its position in their birth chart or horoscope. By using these hymns, we can learn to invite the blessings of the planets to us, or help us re-direct their unwanted energy, living in peace and learning to attain our own happiness.
