Each and every navagraha has one diety associated with that planet, these gods literally represents all the qualities of that planet.Human being over different life cycles acquire blessings or lessons from these god s on the basis of their individual karmas.

These karmas which are recorded by natural forces and their gods[Eg: Lord Vayu is everywhere] are then judged by dieties and our good karmas and bad karmas both manifest as our current life journeys. Good karmas which is carried over in our current life manifest as blessings by the gods which result in our birth in dharmic families, our career progression,health and wealth we will acquire.

Bad karmas and deeds done in previous life are punished by the gods and they manifest in our current lives as long as we don't learn the lessons associated with that punishment. These punishment depends on the severity of the bad karma acquired and manifest as health issues,loss of wealth, family problems, struggle in career and also bad luck.

Each and every seeker in sanatana dharma possess the right to reduce this malefic effect by perfomring good deeds, going on tirth yatras to honor the gods and chanting mantras.

But how do you identify if you have any doshas pertaining to a planet? For this, you need to understand few concepts of astrology and also observe the current state of your life.
Upon your birth, the exact time and date are asked by a Jyotisha to prepare a birth chart. In any birth chart, 4 sections are made by diagonally intersecting a rectangular box. In one section, we have 3 more subsection and in total we have 12 setions of a box.

These 12 section represent the 12 zodiac or rashis of any individual. And in these 12 rashis we have 9 planets which sit according to your time and date of birth. Any good jyotisha pandit or priest looks and studies this birth chart to identify your strong and weak planets.On the basis of planetary positioning, he advices you few things which aid in your personal life planning. These tips from the priest usually involves how your health will look, what kind of life partners you will find, the amount of wealth you will acquire, the hardships you will follow and also your spiritual devotion towards the gods.

These 9 planets according to Vedic Hierarchy from greatest influence to lowest are Sun[रवि], Moon[चन्द्र], Mars[मंगल], Mercury[बुधः], Jupiter[गुरु], Venus[शुक्र], Saturn[शनि], Rahu[राहु], Ketu[केतु]. Placement of these planets in favourable position means you performed good deeds in previous life and unfavourable posiotion means, you need to strengthen that particular planet(s).

If you have doshas for any individual planet, they can be reduced by chanting indivdual mantras associated with that particular planet.

Let us now understand the 9 planets according to their hierarchy, their associated dieties, and mantras to reduce their maleific effects.
