Let’s get straight to the fundaments of each planet’s lesson that is likely to enrich your life with a higher purpose and more soul power. As the more you listen to what each planet seeks out of you, the more you’ll be saved from the effect of their ill placements or their ability to press difficult situations in life that compel one to learn. You must understand here, that no matter how negatively placed a planet in your chart is, should you do the needful to fulfil a planet’s fundamental expectations of you, no harm will be delivered.
Again, if you have a chart with well-placed planets and you take no cognizance of the most fundamental things that these planets seek out of you, rest assured, the gains from these planets will not mature that easily or will not come that easily your way. Therefore, understand what each planet in your horoscope expects out of you! Also, establish a relationship with these planets, take them as living entities, your teachers, your masters and keep responding to them as per the set expectations and you shall remain protected. Remember, every single planet wants your good and is there to accelerate your soul growth. If you understand their noble intention, you shall never fear them! Plus, you will also realize, how these planets work through different ways only to make you benefit for your onward journey… as a soul.
Remember, remedies and rituals as well as chanting, praying… are all an outside thing. Can they resolve or dissolve your Karma, which decides the power of your planets? No!
For it’s you, who creates Karma and only you, who can dissolve it or give a more elevated pattern to it. And Karma is destiny… the actual influencer on your planets.
So, what always helps… is working in tandem with your planets. Working on the self and constantly improving the way you take life and live life! Especially, on the lines of what the planets seek out of you.
