A horoscope represents the combined energy system of the 9 planets including Rahu & Ketu. Any imbalance of the planetary energy in a chart creates a need for adopting measures to balance out the energy. This, in simple terms is the way Astrological Remedies work to balance out the energy system in your life.
We are humans, we make mistakes. We suffer due to our temptations and troubles in this life and even for our past life karma. This comes up in form of negative influences in the horoscope. Certain areas of life being represented by them appear unfulfilled and troubled zones. This can be understood as a negative imbalance in the chart and can be helped by remedies. Remedies can help strengthen or weaken a planet. It’s like an expert’s prescription based on the diagnosis.
Think of Sun. Its energy can be felt through the light and heat but when you are in a closed room, you would be unable to experience it and all you see is darkness. You need to lift the window blinds to let the energy in. In astrological terms, this window blind represents a malefic aspect of other planets over Sun in form of an eclipse, position in enemy sign, debilitation or placement in negative houses like 6th, 8th and 12th. To open those window blinds, you need remedies. Remedies work both ways - they can activate and re energize a weak planet or nullify the impact of a strong malefic planet.
There are several ways and methods to perform remedies that align with Vedic astrology principles.
