In this section, we explore the nine planet deities.  These nine deities are also referred to as Nava (Nine) Grahas (Planets).  These grahas are supposed to have a significant impact on the lives of an individual.  The Hindu science of study of these planets is called the Vedic Astrology.

Classical Vedic astrology uses the seven visible planets; the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn, along with the two lunar nodes, the north and south nodes, Rahu and Ketu.
