Remedies can be defined as different ways or measures adopted by a person to ward off or lesson the negative influence of ones past karma as shown by planets in his or her horoscope. But before any astrologer proceeds with the prescription of remedies he should have to understand the concept of Karma. The Karmas can be classified in three types, according to the possibilities of changing it through any remedy; these are Dridha or Fixed, Adridha or Non Fixed and Dridha-Adridha or Mixed karma.
DRIDHA OR FIXED KARMA is the karma which are almost impossible to avoid or change and only Divine grace could destroy it. Dridha or Fixed karma can be identified in the birth chart when there are more than three or four adverse indications showing the affliction of any particular house, planet or significator in question. For example, if the 5th house or its lord is afflicted in Lagna chart, Moon or Rashi chart, Surya Lagna chart as well as in few of divisional charts, without any benefic planet's aspect, then the person will never have children in spite of any number of remedial measures, as 5th house signifies child and because this house and its lord is severely afflicted in multiple charts.
ADRIDHA OR NON-FIXED KARMA is the karma which can be destroyed totally with some remedies. This can be seen in the horoscope when there is an affliction to the planet or house in question, but there are several positive factors present as well. These positive factors when given strength with suitable remedy then negative indications can be fully negated. For example, if the 5th house or its lord is afflicted in Lagna chart, Moon or Rashi chart, Surya Lagna chart as well as in few of divisional charts, but Jupiter is well placed and also is aspecting 5th house and its lord in all these charts. Then the person will have children if he performs remedial measures of Jupiter.
DRIDHA-ADRIDHA OR MIXED KARMA, when the karma can be changed, but only after intense and prolonged effort. This can be seen in the horoscope when there is an affliction to the planet or house in question, but there only few positive factors present. These positive factors will have to be given strength along with reduction of negative factors will have to be done with suitable remedies. For example, if the 5th house or its lord is afflicted in Lagna chart, Moon or Rashi chart, Surya Lagna chart as well as in few of divisional charts, and Jupiter is well placed and also is aspecting 5th house and its lord in one or two charts. Then the person will have children if he performs remedial measures of Jupiter as well as of malefic planets. Most people's chart contains this kind of mixed karma.
Thus finding the right type of remedy or Upaya is most important. Unfortunately most astrologer do not take all these in account and are only concerned with selling gemstones and other products by creating fear and panic among common people for their own personal gains.
Most important types of Upayes or Remedies are:
The use of mantras is an important form of remedy and it is especially recommended as a powerful astrological remedy, as well as a spiritual practice and meditation technique. A Mantra is a sound formula, either a syllable, a word or a combination of words, that when repeated enough times with the right intonation, and concentration of the mind, has the capacity to change the vibrations on the astral body, neutralizing or changing the negative effects of the adverse planetary influences. Each God and planet have a vibratory level and sound associated. By repeating a mantra associated with any particular deity or planet we can invoke a high and positive level of astral energy that can neutralize and change the negative karma.
Austerities, Fasts and Donations
One more way of astrological remedy is to do certain form of austerities. Austerities or "tapas" is a form of accepting voluntarily a penance or self-restraint, in order to pay any karmic debt. Tapa strengthens the mind, will power and capacity to endure any difficulty in life. It takes the mind away form the duality of "likes and dislikes", Raga and Dwesha. Tapas can be especially powerful to counteract any negative influence from Saturn or to strength the Mars or Sun energies if weak on the birth chart. There are several types of Austerities, Fasts and Donations mentioned for each planet.
Yagyas and Poojas
Yagyas and Poojas are traditional forms of Vedic worship to specific Deities or planets. This method of astrological remedy is emphasized on the classical Jyotish scriptures. There is a very advance knowledge in the Vedic tradition about how to invoke a specific Deity or one of the manifestations or powers of God through the proper ritual and mantras. By this act, the Deity representing the planet is invoked, invited to come and is served by offerings of a special seat, foods, flowers, clothing, water, milk, fire, incense, and other sacred objects. There are specific powerful mantras in the form of Vedic hymns for invoking those energies. Yagyas are more sophisticated and elaborate rituals which should be conducted by a traditional Vedic priest, who does the offerings and rituals in the name of the worshipper.
