Naga Panchami: Remove Snake Curses
Rahu/Ketu the Mysterious Shadow Planets
There are 2 planets that can cause serious havoc in your chart and yet they don’t even exist. Rahu and Ketu are the mysterious shadow planets also known as the North and South nodes of the Moon. Rahu compels you to forget the past and have new experiences. Ketu compels you to embrace the past and uphold tradition. Both amplify whatever they are associated with for good or bad. The success or failure visited upon you by Rahu or Ketu often comes as a complete surprise. The energy and intensity of how the karma unfolds depends on the strength of Rahu and Ketu in a chart.
August 10th and 11th (IST) (as per Indian Almanac) are two auspicious times to remedy Rahu and Ketu afflictions. These days are important and is referred as Naga Chaturthi and Naga Panchami. Naga Chaturthi or Panchami literally translated means “The Cobra’s 4th or 5th Waxing Moon“. The main benefit derived on these dates are that the effects of curses from Nagas (snakes) can be removed from you or your family. Naga’s are very powerful mystical beings that have a snake form and have the power to cast or remove curses. Snakes are also closely associated with Kundalini and with many forms of the Goddess. The great Siddha Patañjali is considered to be an incarnation of the Naga King, Adishesha.
Rahu and Ketu together are seen as the cause behind most psychological disorders, incurable diseases, possession by negative entities, attraction to the dark side of life and sudden negative events. Offer prayers to Rahu and Ketu on Naga Chaturthi and Naga Panchami to have a check on their negative influence in your life.
During both the days, all the planets are hemmed between the nodal planets . By this it is apparent that the nodal planets are stronger and all other planets are losing their strength. Moreover, major planets Saturn and Jupiter will be passing in the star Swati and Ardra respectively adding more strength to the planet Rahu. Rahu is considered as a stronger planet as per Vedic astrology.
Rahu becomes more powerful by associating with exalted Saturn. This period may take us, OFF the righteous path and tempt for self destruction. This period will make us learn and feel everything leading to full satiation which will lead to self- realization and bliss. These days are the perfect days to seek forgiveness and get relieved of curses accumulated through the deeds done consciously or unconsciously. By worshiping the Snake Gods during these days will bless with good generations, wealth and relief from diseases.
Naga Panchami is said to be the day on which Lord Brahma gave a boon to Serpents that they would get respected / worshipped by human beings on the Earth. Effects of curses from the snakes can be dissolved on this day.
