In Hindu mythology, there are different narratives regarding the importance of these stars in the universe. This series of Nine Planets is divided into eight parts as the Rahu and Ketu, being the twin shadow-planets, have been combined together in a single book.

There are millions of galaxies in this vast and ever expanding universe. Our solar system is inherent in one of these galaxies called the Milky Way. The Sun occupies the pivotal position in the solar system while the other planets surround the Sun and revolve around it attracted as they are by its gravitational pull. Out of these the Moon is the satellite of the Earth. The smaller a planet, the less is its attraction. Te bigger a planet, the greater is attraction. Every planet attracts the other planets and influences them as well. That is why the fate or destiny of a person is determined by the movement of planets. These Nine Planets have a vital say in gain and loss, victory and defeat, pleasure and pain and the ups and downs of man’s life. they keep on moving ceaselessly through twenty-seven constellations and twelve zodiacal signs.
We hope and trust that these eight books will cater for the needs of not only ordinary readers but also the students of astrology. The subject-matter of each book has been culled from different ancient Scriptures. The readers are requested to make us aware of the needed improvement, if any.
