Objective of Astrology is to give accurate predictions about future but its utility lies in the correct and effective solutions to our problems. Astrology is highly beneficial because with the help of this knowledge we come to know about our future and forth coming good or bad events.

Rightly has some body affirmed, “To be forewarned is to be forearmed.” When we know it in advance that something negative is likely to happen to us we prepare ourselves to face that or avert that by equipping ourselves with necessary tools and weapons for our protection.

Astrological knowledge equips us with the knowledge about various remedial measures, which is necessary to protect us from the miseries of life. These remedial measures are meant to propitiate the planets and for getting better results with peaceful life. An eminent astrologer should be able to give the solution to all sorts of problems and complications in one’s life.

Hindu Astrology is mainly based on nine planets including two shadow planets Rahu and Ketu. (Moon’s Nodes) and twelve Zodiacs. It has been established that all these planets transiting various signs (Zodiacs) affect all the activities of the world at micro and macro levels. Some planets have been termed as ‘Shubha’ (auspicious) and some others as ‘Ashubha’ (inauspicious). These inauspicious or malefic planets in various permutation and combinations create problems for human- beings as per the respective dasha and transits. However, planets, which cause problems, can be propitiated by adopting certain remedial measures for the concerned planets.

It is only in Hindu Astrology that we have been provided with many methods and procedures that can alleviate our grief, pain and miseries by the grace of God. In no other stream of fortune telling, this unique system of adopting remedial measures to mitigate our sorrow is dealt with in such a detail.

A human- being suffers from many types of ailments, sorrow, grief, hazards and so on & so forth. They go for getting out of this undesired situation by adopting various methods as suggested by astrologers and fortune-tellers. Their concerns are mainly in the fields of - health, wealth, education, career, well-being and welfare, marriage and romance, children, and averting ailments, etc.

The examples and references cited in Ancient Indian Texts and Scriptures show the efficacy of various remedial measures to get the desired boon or results like doing Homa, Yagya, Japa, observing special fast and chanting Stotra, Mantra etc. The great Indian King Dasharatha had attained the boon of progeny by only performing requisite Putreyasthi Yagya, in the able direction of the greatest of sage Vasistha.

Hindu Shastric texts proclaim that -

गायत्री वेद जननी गायत्री पाप नाशिनी

It means that Gayatri is mother of Vedas and it expiates bad Karma. Therefore by chanting Gayantri Mantra or performing Gayantri Yagya one gets protection from negative energies. In addition to that all sorts of sins get destroyed. It is most useful in the rectification of Pitri Dosha. As per lord Buddha Gayatri Mantra is small but it contains infinite powers in it. Gayatri proclaims the fundamental doctrine of Vedas that a man can get realisation of God in his life with his own efforts without the intervention of any prophet or Avtar.

Among Hindus there is a tradition of worshipping Lord Ganesha in the beginning of all auspicious ceremonies. Lord Ganpati is very popular among devotees because he overcomes the obstacles thereby bestowing Riddhi (wealth), Siddhi (success) and Buddhi ( intellect) to his devotees.

In the Hindu God- Trinity, Lord Shiva has been assigned a special place as he has been termed as ‘Ashutosh’ (one who is pleased very easily). In the famous Hindu sacred epic- Ramcharita Manas, it has been mentioned about lord Shiva that- Hkkoh esfV ldfga f=iqjkjh (Only Lord Shiva is capable of changing the course of Destiny).

न गुरोः सदृशो दाता, न देवो शंकरोपमः।
न कौलात् परमोयोगी, न विद्या त्रिपुरापरा।।

In above mentioned Shloka Lord Shiva is considered as best and supreme divinity. There are many ways to appease lord Shiva like doing Maharudrabhisheka, offering Puja and Archana. Lord Shiva bestows his boon and blessings very easily to those who wear ‘ Rudraksha’.

The king of Nepal could retain his monarchy with the influence of genuine one faced Rudraksha although there was presence of inauspicious yoga in his horoscope. If a person suffers from trouble equivalent to death, fear of death or that of chronic illness or accident then Mahamrityunjay Yagya is recommended in such situation. Sage Markandeya averted great fury of death by chanting Mahamrityunjaya Mantra.

Similarly it is said that ‘‘कलौ चण्डी विनायकौ’’ which means that in Kaliyuga Lord Ganapati and Goddess Chandi give instant and very effective results. Therefore lots of people recite Durgasaptashatichandi when they are under the influence of malefic planets. Goddess Chandi (Durga) frees one from poverty, sorrow, distress, disease and fear. Goddess Chandi is worshipped in every Hindu family specially during Navratras.

For the welfare of mankind and attainment of all Purusharthas - {Dharma (righteousness, moral values), Artha (prosperity, economic values), Kama (pleasure, psychological values), Moksha (Salvation, spiritual values) } Aadi Guru Shankaracharya established Guru Shishya lineage in four Shankar Mathas thereby providing guidelines for worshipping presiding deity of Shriyantra, Goddess Shri Lalita Maha Tripursundari. By worshipping Goddess Tripursundari the devotee can attain Bhoga (material comforts) and Moksha simultaniously.

यत्रास्ति भोगो न हि तत्र मोक्षो यत्रास्ति मोक्षो न हि तत्र भोगो।
श्री सुंदरी सेवन् तत्पराणाम् भोगश्च मोक्षश्च करस्थ एव।।

The infallibility of these remedies has been matchless and recorded at many places. So, with the advent of information technology and scientific gadgets like computer and Microchips, a better research and advancement have been quite conspicuous in this lesser explored area of providing relief to the suffering humanity in general.
