Planet (graha) Mars (Kuja)

Deity Mars - Kuja

He who is like an ember, who holds a shakthi,
He who has red limbs, He who is the son of earth,
He who is young, he who does good,
He who has a gross body, He who gives wealth,

He who removes debts, he who looks at you,
He who causes disease, He who destroys diseases,
He who is as powerful as current, He who causes wounds,
He who fulfils desires, He who gives money and is Kuja,

He who likes to hear Sama, he who wears red cloths,
He who has blood red eyes, he who is reddish,
He who is of the colour of blood,
He who teaches us all duties,

He who wears red garland, he who wears golden ear studs,
He who is the lord of planets
For him who reads all these names of the son of earth,
Would get rid of all his debts, bad luck, poverty,
Would get wealth, get many wives who are pretty,

And without any doubt beget sons,
Who would improve the stature of the family.
To those who worship with great many flowers,
Mars the do-gooder and the son of goddess earth,
All problems created by that planet will surely vanish.

Mars is a planet of energy – energy that can be dedicated to a purpose, energy that can be set apart, energy that manifests as protection, enabling, reaching of goals and life’s purpose. Here, we look to human values with dedication as a sub-value of Love, and the take up of action with purpose and outcomes as evidenced by Mars.
