Vedic Planetary Deities by Dennis M. Harness, Ph.D.

Sun: Surya is the Vedic name and main deity associated with the Sun. Surya is the fire of the heavenly sphere that illumines the world. The light form of Shiva is also associated with the Sun. Shiva means the “auspicious” one. Shiva is the yogi in meditation reflected by Surya, who represents the atman, the soul. Surya is the origin of all evolution, the source of all that exists in the universe. According to Parashara, the chief deity associated with the Sun is Agni, the god of fire. Surya is also known as divya-agni, the celestial fire.

Moon: Chandra is the Vedic name for the Moon. Shakti / Parvati are considered the main female deities associated with the Moon. They are the consorts of Shiva. Parvati is said to remember her previous life as Shiva’s wife, Shakti. Parvati translates as, “she who dwells in the mountains”. Such a goddess is an appropriate mate for Shiva, who also likes to dwell in mountainous regions and the fringe of society. Another name and deity associated with the Moon is Soma. Soma is the divine nectar, the sacrificial elixir of the Gods. Soma is pictured as a priestly sage, a powerful god who is a healer of all diseases and a bestower of riches. He is also the father of Mercury (“Out of the Moon, the mind was born”). Parashara states that the main deity of the Moon is Varuna, God of the cosmic waters.

Mercury: Budha is the Vedic name for Mercury reflecting divine intelligence (buddhi). Beyond the mind is intellect (buddhi). According to Parashara, Vishnu is the main male deity associated with Mercury. He is the god of cosmic intelligence, the preserver and pervader of the universe. Saraswati, the goddess of wisdom and learning is the female deity reflecting mercurial powers. Saraswati means “the flowing one”. She is the goddess of creative intelligence, a flowing stream of inspiration like the ancient Sarasvati River which she takes her name from. Saraswati is identified with thought and intellect. “May the Goddess Saraswati, with all power, full of power, further us, as the guide of our minds.” Rig Veda Vol. I. 61.

Venus: Shukra is the Vedic name for Venus. Shukra actually means “semen” representing the power of fertility and reproduction. Lakshmi is the main female deity associated with Venus in Hindu mythology. She is often pictured as the devoted wife or consort of Vishnu. She is the earth, the creation, one with all females, abundance, luxury and pleasure that is healing and revitalizing. She is often depicted sitting on a lotus flower, flanked by two elephants, who are showering her with cosmic waters which represent fertilizing rains. Parashara states that Indrani, Lord Indra’s consort, is the presiding deity of Venus.

Mars: Mangal or Kuja are the Vedic names for fiery Mars. The main deity is Subrahmanya or Skanda. He is the adolescent Kumara, the son of Pleiades (Kartikeya), lord of the armies, the spear-holder, the spiritual warrior. According to Parashara, Kartikeya is the chief deity associated with Mars and was Shiva and Parvarti’s second son. In yoga, Skanda is the power of chastity and the virile seed. By making his sublimated seed rise through the central inner channel of the subtle-body (susumna) up to the sixth chakra where it is consumed, that the yogi becomes the complete master of his instincts. He is often depicted riding a peacock and carrying a spear. Rudra, the God of storms, is also mentioned as reflected the Mars archetype of the warrior.

Jupiter: Guru is the Vedic name for the great benefic, Jupiter. The primary deity is Brihaspati, the teacher of the Gods, who is known for his divine intellect and speech. He has reached the stage of bliss that is beyond desire. Brihaspati, the god of asceticism and the lord of speech is considered an incarnation of Brahma, the creator. Ganapati or Ganesha is sometimes identified with the Great-Lord, Brahaspati. Ganapati is also considered as a God of Learning and “remover of obstacles”. He is the lord of categories (gana), the patron of letters and schools. Ganesha’s wives are Success (Siddhi) and Prosperity (Rddhi). Parashara also lists Indra as the presiding deity associated with Jupiter.

Saturn: Shani is the Vedic name for the planet of truth (satya), Saturn. The male deity is the dark side of Shiva, the destroyer. He destroys Kama (desire) through the gaze of his eyes. The female deity associated with Saturn is Kali. She is adorned with a necklace of skulls around her neck, which represents the heads of ignorance that she has removed. Shani and Kali are often dressed in black or dark blue and are associated with spritual discipline and asceticism. Parashara states that Brahma is the chief deity associated with Saturn. Yama is also associated with Saturn as a planetary deity according to Phaladeepika by Mantereswara. 1

North Node of the Moon: Rahu is considered the dragon’s head or north node of the Moon. Rahu is considered an anti-God and a bitter enemy to the Moon (Chandra). It was Soma, the Moon God that detected Rahu disguised as a god receiving the ambrosia of immortality. Rahu’s head was severed by Vishnu, the preserver; but since it had drank of the divine nectar it had everlasting life. As revenge, Rahu tries to devour the Moon when it is full. This is the tale of the eclipses and why they are vulnerable times on the planet. Durga is considered the main female deity associated with Rahu. She is a fierce warrior, battle queen and personal savior of her devotees.

South Node of the Moon: Ketu is the dragon’s tail or south node of the Moon. The deity associated with Ketu is Rudra, the lord of the storms and the causer of tears. Ganesha is sometimes associated with Ketu as the bringer of enlightenment. Ketu is called the moksha karaka planet, the chaya graha (shadow planet) of spiritual liberation. Ketu is also considered a monster that gives birth to comets and meteors. It is also said to have a Mars-like quality, spiritual warrior quality.

The Force Is With Us: The Higher Consciousness That Science Refuses to Accept ~ Tom Walker

Inspired by encounters he had of his son from beyond the grave, Tom Walker went searching and discovered that paranormal phenomena have been exhaustively studied and scientific evidence exists to support it. Walker uncovers scientific studies involving telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and psychokinesis and the scientists who have proven their validity, like J.B. Rhine and his ESP card tests, or Hal Puthoff and the secret remote viewing experiments that were funded by the U.S. Government.

There’s a force in the world that makes things happen. Belief in it has existed since time immemorial. Like “The Force” in the Star Wars movies, it’s an energy field that permeates the universe, forming and sustaining all things, an energy of consciousness that animates the world. Making connections between ideas like the Great Void and “dark matter,” between Ch’i and quantum fields, between the illusion of Maya in Hinduism and the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics, Walker argues that it is our connection with the higher planes of consciousness, the great beyond, the fundamental quantum reality that makes up the world.

Thomas Walker, D.C., is a modern Renaissance man. An authority on alternative healthcare and science, he is a chiropractic physician, master level martial artist, former US Army Green Beret, professor of natural science, artist, musician and author. He lives in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, where he teaches kung fu, practices alternative medicine, and continues his investigation into New Science and spiritual phenomena.

Tom Walker graduated Magna cum Laude from Life Chiropractic College in 1986 and cum Laude at Excelsior College in 1999. He is a member of the Blue Key National Honor Society, University of New Mexico and the Pi Tau Delta, International Chiropractic Honor Society. He also belongs to the U.S. Army Special Forces Association and the Kajukenbo Self-Defense Institute, Inc., where he holds a sixth degree black belt and is a chief instructor. Tom Walker is 32° Master Mason in Cherokee Lodge 728 of Free & Accepted Masons. Available titles by Thomas Walker:

The Gospel of the Second Coming ~ Timothy Freke

At last the long awaited sequel to the Bible has arrived. Gnostic scholars Freke and Gandy present a post-modern gospel for the 21st century, which is a profoundly satirical parable about the journey to self-knowledge.

Jesus is back, but this time with a zany sense of humour, and he wants to set the record straight. He wants to prove that Freke and Gandy’s controversial theory about the origins of Christianity is right. So he sets out to convince his disciples that he’s really not an historical figure, but rather a character in an allegorical myth, which encodes ancient spiritual teachings.

Jesus doesn’t really exist, because he’s a character in a story in the mind of the author. And this is important because the deep message Jesus has returned to reveal is that the reader doesn’t really exists either. Life is like a story and we all exist as characters in the mind of the Author of All.

The Gospel of the Second Coming is a life-out-loud book which irreverently explores the deep message of Gnostic Christianity. It presents a vision of the original teachings of Christianity that some will find offensive, but other totally life-affirming. As Jesus says himself in the text: “Death is coming. Life is foreplay.”

Best-selling author Timothy Freke talks about his controversial new book ‘The Gospel of the Second Coming — Jesus is back … but this time he’s funny!’
