Graha Strength – Strength of the Grahas….!

The Nava Graha or Nine Planets are one of the Incarnation of Parmeshwar or Lord Vishnu….! A Graha is celestial body, which holds you, which controls you or one which affects you in literal sense…!

All the Grahas are a constitution of five elements or the Pancha Tatva…! Here are the Tatva or Elements of Grahas….!

Agni or Fire – Surya – Mangal
Jal or Water – Chandra – Shukra
Vaayu – Shani
Prithvi – Budha
Akash or Space – Guru – Rahu – Ketu

There is curiosity about the Strongest of the Graha amongst the Nava Graha….! From Puranas to Mythology n-number of things are written on these subjects…! Believer or followers of each Graha tried to justify how the Graha which they worship is the best and the strongest amongst all the Grahas…!

We can Say Surya is the King of the Galaxy and all other Grahas are part and Parcel of Surya only, as they were born out of Surya only at the time of Creation…! This is a very valid point and all the Grahas are having some or the other quality of Surya in them. Surya himself is having aggression of Mars, beauty of Shukra, Wisdom of Guru and so on…! So Surya is the Strongest Graha statement has some solid weightage to it…!

Chandra is the Graha of immense importance in Vedic Astrology as all the Jyotish revolves only around Chandra. The western astrology is as per Surya and it fails to give results about many specific issues in predictions…! Chandra is the fastest moving Graha and within 27 days he completes the 12 Rashis, 27 Nakshatras, 108 Nakshatra Padas and 360 degree of cosmos…! Without Chandra the calculations of Jyotish will have no meaning. So Chandra is the strongest amongst all the Nava Grahas is a Practical Statement….!

The same kind of churning or discussions were happening in the Court of King Vikramaditya when he laughed about the Supremacy of Shani Dev and faced a rigorous Sade Sati which showed him the true colors of life…!

So we can say that amongst all the Graha Shani is the Strongest as He is the Judge, the reformer and punishes people when they disrespect the grace of god, when people fly a few feet high above ground and feels that they have achieved a lot with their own smartness and hard work, disrespect elders, society and money, then Shani Dev comes into their life and their feet touches the ground. Without Shani there will be no balancing of Strength and the stronger will butcher the weaker in the society…! Hence Shani is the best and strongest Graha in the Nava Graha…!

Mangal is the very force of life…! The energy and strength with which I am writing or you are reading this post is just Mangal. Mangal makes you active; Mangal gives the force to body cells for functioning. Hence without Mangal, the very existence of Life is only in question…! So we can say that Mangal is the Strongest Graha of all…!
Budha is the Brain…! Without Budha speech, senses, wit, humor everything is meaningless. Budha is the acquisition of Knowledge. Without Budha, the Physical Life will be of no use. All the objects, subjects are of zero importance….! Hence Budha is of prime importance as it gives us the Brains to live happily on this Graha Prithvi…! So here we can say that Budha is the Strongest of all the Grahas.

Guru is the wisdom, the flesh, the fat and the piousness of soul. Guru tells us what is good and what is bad. Without the sense of judging good and bad, man will be like an animal. Only Guru makes this differentiation in Humans and the rest of the living species on the Earth…! So without Guru there is no use of Human Lives…! Even the Gods surrenders to the Guru and hence we can Say that Guru is the Strongest of all the Grahas…!

Shukra is the beauty in all forms. Without Shukra the world will look a horrible place to live and life will have no hope. Shukra is the pleasures of all sorts, Shukra is a complete Bhogi and even Gods are keen to come on Earth for all the Pleasures of Shukra. Shukra makes a life worth of living. Shukra gives relationships, wealth and happiness hence Shukra is the best of the Graha in all the Nava Grahas…!

So there is no conclusion yet, which Graha is the strongest of all? The question remains the same…!

Ok lets understand about the Rahu and Ketu and then we will see whether we are getting the answer or not…!

Ketu is the Descending Lunar Node or Ketu is a point of intersection of Surya and Chandra’s orbits over the axis of Earth. It is a Mathematic point for calculations and it has tremendous impact like any Graha on the Earth…! The Shastras described it as a Body without head. Ketu can see so headless attitude. Ketu has bodily strength but no direction, as the head is not there. Hence Ketu acts with the support of Graha with which he is placed in any Kundali. Ketu gives immense Strength to such Grahas and the person excels into the significance of the said Graha. So company of Ketu to any Graha will increase his results many fold and hence Ketu can be considered the greatest of all the Graha.

Rahu is the Head without body….! It is the Ascending Lunar Node…! Now Rahu has strongest of Brains, eyes, speech, ears, nose but no body to act…..! So this body less Rahu has only his brains and speech to express. He also needs a body of other Graha to act in a physical manner. So whichever Graha is placed with Rahu in the Kundali, behaves under Rahu’s Brain. Rahu becomes the Director and the Other Graha acts as per Instructions of Rahu. If there are no Graha with Rahu then only brain and speech are used to enhance or reduce the effects of the said House of the Kundali…! Rahu is an out caste Graha and he is comfortable with people other than your own community, i.e. Foreign People or elements…! So Rahu is a great Graha in terms of venturing into new lands, new sciences or streams of knowledge and is rebellious. For every aspect of life, Rahu has his own views and those are always rule and tradition breaking….! Hence we can say Rahu is the Greatest of all Graha as his sheer presence creates turbulence in the concerned House or in the significations of Graha…!

So now which Graha is the Strongest of all? Still the question remains unanswered…! Here is the resultant strength of the Graha….!
Mangal is Four times Stronger than the Shani

Budha is Four times Stronger than Mangal / Ketu

Guru is Eight times Stronger than Budha

Shukra is Eight times stronger than Guru

Chandra is Sixteen times stronger than Shukra

Surya is Two times stronger than Chandra

Rahu is Two times stronger than the Surya

So the ascending order of strength for Grahas is

Shani – Mangal (Ketu)– Budha – Guru – Shukra – Chandra – Surya – Rahu

Hence Rahu is the Strongest of all Graha….!

Yes, Rahu is the Strongest of all the Nava Graha and it is tried and tested…..!

The transits of Rahu are most effective than the transits of Guru, Shani and gives long lasting results…! An entire 400 page book can be written on the Rahu and it signification in 12 Houses and for 12 Grahas. Rahu is the rebel Graha who breaks all the tradition and rules and give wings to people to behave in their own manner, which always is not acceptable in the society…! People falling in love, marrying out of caste, religion, going to foreign places, working on foreign land and setting your own identity there, working in politics on a foreign land and becoming ministers, rebellious leaders, setting new paths in dharma and opening new school of thoughts in religion and spirituality, getting involved with paranormal, Tantra, mantra and occult sciences, sitting at home and creating turbulence in foreign land, earning on brain, manipulation, neither wrong nor right, at times curse to the entire family, worse hell like domestic atmosphere are all under this Rahu’s rulership and whichever Graha is with him, the body for expression will be the same Graha. If with Budha, writing and speeches will create a major revelations about uncomfortable issues in society, with Mangal can make warriors and rulers of countries, with Shani people can work on their brains and major physical actions will be zeroed, can be important for Sadhana or Meditation, with Guru spoils the entire views about religion and spirituality, with Shukra it is the worse combination for indulging in relationship, with Chandra a deadly thinker and game planner, with Surya physical acts will be worse and the person will be aggressive and vibrant…!

So look for your Rahu in the Horoscope, It is only bad in the 6th House as it gives serious diseases which can not be diagnosed over a long period of time…!

First House Rahu will make one royal but the life span will be less and death circumstances will be violent. Dead Body of the person will be deformed with burns, cuts and scars etc.

Second House Rahu makes one deceptive, liar and misleading person. Speech disorders, weird style of speaking is observed. Money is promised a lot…!

Third House Rahu people are workaholic. Create their own destiny and spoils others. If they are into media, writing then they can reveal too many secrets of society, politics and religion.

Fourth House Rahu gives discomfort at home and people hate their own parents, living conditions and house, property etc. Ideal for these people is to leave their homes and settle in some foreign land…! They will face mass revolt in their own birth place and might have to face hatred and bad name.

Fifth House Rahu is the greatest thing for creativity. Very good artists, painters, actors, writers and all their creative works are of very high standards…! Very bad for love, romance, passion and for children.

Sixth House Rahu is a worse combination for health. People will be bed ridden and the diseases will not be diagnosed easily. Life will be a hell….!

Seventh House Rahu gives weird ideas about love and partners. Rebellious people and will marry a abnormal match, like other cast spouse, or age gap between partners or height problems or fat and slim partners or marry a foreigner etc…! Also makes one liberal in sex and people can enjoy relationship with many partners…! Always unhappy about their own partner, marriage might not be a success.

Eight house Rahu gives a lot in terms of inheritance and sudden gains. Makes one indulge into secret sciences like astrology, occult, séances etc. These people go to any extent for availing secret knowledge…!

Ninth House Rahu will make one a rebellious in Dharma. Person will learn traditional knowledge and will come ahead with his own views. Good for foreign connections, travel and undertakings. Will do a lot for Dharma in their own unique style.

Tenth House Rahu is very good for Politics and Government related works. It is also advisable for these people to stay away from home city or country to get full advantage of this Rahu.

Eleventh House Rahu people make their destiny only because of this Rahu. Rahu gives very influential connections and the connection works for these people. High society and elegance is observed.

Twelfth House Rahu is a wanderer and many countries and continents will be traveled by such people. They lose their own identity and become a mixture of many cultures and languages. Very good for Sadhana or religious practices. Can visit prison sometime due to some crime…!
