Astrologers suggest remedial measures to alleviate the problems caused by special planetary positions and Dasas in the horoscope. There are religious rituals and special mantras that would help the native avert misfortune or afflictions caused by malefics.

  1. One should chant ‘Aditya Hrudayaam’ three times daily to have mental peace in both domestic and office life. This will also vanquish one’s enemies and increase one’s prosperity. It is believed that Lord Rama killed Ravana, chanting this matra in the battlefield.
  2. People who have bad dasas and those who travel usually by plane, scooter or car should chant the ‘Maha Mrityumjaya’ mantra as many times as possible. Also they can write the mantra on a piece of paper and carry it on person. It is a sure remedy.
  3. Girls who face delay in marriage are advised to do Gauri Puja and recite the stotram as many times as possible before the portrait of Goddess Durga Devi. If married women recite ‘Kanaha Dhara Stotram’ on all Tuesdays and Fridays, they will experience marital bliss and financial prosperity.
  4. If a native is suffering from afflictions under particular Dasa of a planet, they have to propitiate the deity to that planet to get relief.
  5. All people who are passing through bad Dasa and Antardasa should recite the Navagraha Stostram nine times a day.
  6. Girls whose marriage has been delayed due to mangal dosha have to chant Sri Mangala Chandika Stostram before the five faced lamp (Panchamukhi Deepam). Chanting this Sostram is believed to propitiate the Goddess and expedite the marriage.
  7. Reciting Parvati Swayamvara Sloka every Friday evening is thought to produce desired effect if delay has been caused in marriage. Besides, a discarded or ill-treated wife will join her husband, if she chants this sloka.
