Getting to grips with your birth chart is a fascinating process that can be the key to unlocking your inherent karmic code. It can help you understand yourself better, both your inner knowing and the way you relate to the world, and can bring many ‘aha’ moments as you identify with favorable, as well as unfavorable, characteristics and patterns that you observe within yourself.

Dr David Frawley places great weight on the importance of the Vedic birth chart, when he says:

“The Vedic astrological chart is probably the most important document we have in life and more important than our genetic code. Yet like our DNA, it is a code written in the language of nature and needs to be deciphered by a trained researcher to make sense of its indications. Through the Vedic astrological chart we can understand the greater purpose of our lives, our vulnerabilities and our hidden strengths that help us fulfill our true karmic potential.”

Our karmic dues are displayed in our birth chart, and the ultimate truth is that we have incarnated on this planet in order to settle them. The good karma shows up in the chart as benefic planets and the bad karma as malefic planets. It really is as simple as that. And, just as nobody has a life without any challenges, nobody’s chart is perfect. This is where the remedies come in. align27 tells you which personalized remedies you can do to counter birth chart defects and any real-time challenges caused by current transits. 

Why should we do remedies?

Remedies are one of the most important parts of Vedic Astrology. For every problem, there is a solution. Just as the Gods do not gain anything from our prayers, the planets don’t expect us to do remedies – we do them for our own benefit. Remedies bring a shift in our consciousness and this strengthens the positive vibrations of the benefic planets and reduces the negative impact of malefic planets.

What kind of weaknesses can be remedied?

While remedies may not be able to remove the actual karma itself, what they can do is minimize the burden caused by the karma. Suffering caused by debilitated (weak) planets and planets placed in ‘Dusthana houses’ – the 6th, 8th and 12th houses, which are renowned for being difficult – can be relieved through the practice of remedies. As can weaknesses relating to the current time, such as a challenging Dasha (major planetary period) or Antar Dasha (sub period).

Astrological blemishes, or doshas, formed by the weakness of unfavorable planetary placements or malefic (negative) influences on planets or houses also play their part. Pitra dosha is an astrological combination in a chart that occurs due to the actions of ancestors. Kaal sarp dosha is a malefic astrological combination of planets in a chart related to past deeds or karma and happens when all the planets are positioned between Rahu and Ketu. Grahan dosha is when someone is born during a Solar or Lunar eclipse. For those with one of these or any other malefic dosha, performing remedies is advised. Favored remedies for this include silence, meditation, prayer and fasting.

Here are a few simple yet powerful steps that can help you sail through any karmic challenges. 

Simplify your Life

Are you someone who is always looking for a bigger house, fancier car or more ambitious position? Or are you content in your life? Simplifying your life does not mean selling up everything and taking off to a cave in the Himalayas. Small changes within the framework of your life can help you live in a state of satisfaction.

Whilst having goals in life is a positive thing, it’s good not to be too over-ambitious, as this can lead to dissatisfaction with what you already have. Financially, it’s best to avoid taking loans and instead save and spend within your means. Dropping greed and practicing simple living will go a long way. 

Soak in Wisdom

Spiritual masters through the ages have shared wisdom with humanity in specific ways at particular times to help us move through life’s challenges without getting ‘stuck’. The renowned master, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has spoken on a multitude of topics and answered millions of questions, which can help us find the strength to move forward in life, even when times are tough.

In speaking about astrological challenging periods, Gurudev says, “You should know there is always a remedy for this. What is it? Adoring the Divine. On top of all the planets is Lord Shiva or the Shiva Tattva. So by chanting Om Namah Shivaya, you will sail through all this.”

So soak yourself in spiritual knowledge, chant ‘Om Namah Shivaya’ 108 times, if possible, and use the challenging periods to go within. It is there that you will find boundless strength to go through whatever life throws at you.  

Visit Temples Online

Remedies don’t have to be complicated, and they certainly don’t have to break the bank. If you have been advised to visit a particular temple why not see if you can visit remotely. Of course if you are able to visit in person that is best, but many temples in India also have live videos where you can engage with the temple rituals without having to pay a fortune on travel to get there.

You can check out this website to see if the temple on your astrological to-do list can be visited online.

Keep the Faith

When done with faith and a positive attitude, remedies are rituals that help us change from within. We have heard the old phrase ‘mind over matter’ hundreds of times, describing the ability of the human mind to impact a situation. Isn’t it true that your intention is a great power in itself?

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change,” says Dr Wayne Dyer who has studied and written books on the power of intention.

Take a positive intention and have the belief that the remedies will work, and then make the effort. The intention and dedication behind the action will impact the result. 

Donate and Serve

Selfless service is the ultimate astrological remedy.

What is it that you want to remedy? Relationship? Communication? Education? Observe what is lacking in your life and see how you can help someone else with that very issue. If you are struggling in your relationship, be a listening ear for someone who is going through their own marital issues. If you are struggling with your education or learning, why not share other skills you have with someone for no charge. In either case do so without expecting anything in return.

If you are experiencing anger, then donate on a Tuesday, the day of Mars, which is connected with anger. If education is the problem you could donate books to a charity on a Wednesday, the day of Mercury. For Saturn-related problems and to enhance your ability to take responsibility and practise discipline, you can donate money or do service to others on a Saturday.
