9 Vishnu Avatars Connection 9 Planets

November 24, 2023

In Hindu or Vedic astrology, the nine Vishnu avatars have major significance. In general, according to Vedic astrology, nine planets are evaluated before making predictions. These planets include the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu. Furthermore, these planets rule over a group of 27 Nakshatras, with each planet ruling three Nakshatras. However, there are 28 constellations in total. The 28th Nakshatra, i.e. Abhijit, is ruled by Lord Krishna or Lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu is also called Lord Narayana and Lord Hari. Within the supreme trinity, which includes Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, and Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu is the protector.

Seven days together make a week all over the world. According to Vedic astrology, each of the nine planets represents a particular day. For example, the Sun represents Sunday, and the Moon symbolizes Monday. Similarly, Mars rules Tuesday, and Mercury rules Wednesday. The generous and most auspicious Jupiter rules Thursday. While Venus and Saturn rule Friday and Saturday respectively. But since Rahu and Ketu are shadow planets and do not have any house in the horoscope of Kaalpurusha, they do not represent any day of the week. However, Rahu and Ketu rule each day of the week at a particular time known as Rahu Kaal. But Rahu Kaal is considered inauspicious to start any work in Muhurat.

Why did Vishnu take birth on earth in different symbols?

There were wars between deities (semi-divine beings) and asuras (demons). In all the wars the divine beings continued defeating the demons. Frightened, Shukracharya (Venus), the guru of the demons, went to appeal to the ruler Shiva. This was to obtain the Mritasanjeevani Stotram, a mantra that would make the demons invincible.

Meanwhile, in his absence, Shukracharya requested that the evil forces take refuge in the ashram of his father Bhrigu.

The gods saw Shukracharya’s absence as an opportune time to attack the demons. Additionally, he believed that if Shukracharya could find a way to perfect the mantra that made the demons unbeatable, it would probably not be possible to conquer the demons. As a result, inspired by Indra, the gods proceeded to attack.

The evil spirits ran away to Bhrigu’s wife (Shukracharya’s mother) to hide. Since sage Bhrigu was elsewhere, his wife decided to secure the demons and immobilize Indra using her army.

vThe gods took refuge at the feet of Lord Vishnu. However, Bhrigu’s wife warned them that if this somehow happened, she would eat two of them.

Indra asked Vishnu to kill him, upon which Lord Vishnu beheaded him with his Sudarshan Chakra.

When sage Bhrigu returned and saw the severed leader of his spouse. He insulted Vishnu several times for taking birth on earth and suffering death and ordinary life.

Out of respect for his wife, Bhrigu restored his wife to life through his forces.

Thus, Vishnu took birth on earth through his famous incarnations.
