How the astrological remedies work

The planets are not just physical masses of matter floating on the space. They are tremendously powerful astral energies or psychic forces which affect us in our astral body, the subtle energy and psychic field surrounding and interpenetrating our physical body, the subtle energy and psychic field surrounding and interpenetrating our physical body.

The planetary energies create a pattern, a shape and a combinations of colours in our astral body, which irradiates and attracts a similar energy towards it.

The different planets contribute to the colour of the aura and that colour and vibratory wavelength is related with our thoughts, feelings, health, and the situations we attract to our life.

The remedies work by managing or changing those astral influences in our own astral body, strengthening or diminishing certain colours, frequencies or wavelengths like creating a kind of protective shield.

There are several types of Upayes or remedies:

Some of them are:

1. Yoga
2. Mantras
3. Yantras
4. Yogyas and Poojas
5. Use of Gemstones
6. Austerities, and Fasts
7. Donations

Yoga

The most important Upaye or way we can purify and enlighten our astral body is Yoga.

Please don’t understand here the word Yoga as just a form of physical exercise, as it is commonly understood in the west.

Even though the physical practices or asanas are a very important part of it and they themselves can bring important changes in the astral body and the mind, Yoga also includes a discipline of the mind, emotions, subtle energies, actions, behaviour, the practice of meditation and most important, a total surrender to God.

Yoga goes right to the source of the human problems which is the spiritual ignorance and it gives tools to change the thought and behaviour patterns that are associated with the negative planets. For each planet and actually for each planetary combination or each individual chart situation the astrologer has to find which is the appropriate Yoga, and give the right kind of spiritual advice to the consultant.

In some cases it may be more meditation, in other case it may be more towards devotion and developing pure and selfless love (Bhakti Yoga), in others the practice of asanas or body postures, or different breathing exercises and pranayama, or the path of karma yoga, selfless service and detachment in action, Gnana yoga, Kundalini yoga, etc. or most probably a certain combination of more than one path.

All these teachings and techniques are based on the developing of self-discipline of the mind and emotions to bring them from a gross level into a tune with the Divine mind and “Dharma” or cosmic order.
