Of the nine, seven major ones are listed according to the days of the week they favour, namely Sun, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn for Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday respectively. Two other planets Rahu and Ketu are invisible and are assigned the north and south points of the lunar node. All theories and predictions involved in astrology are based on the positions of the planet in a particular bhavas or houses which it inhabits. There are 12 houses and each represents a particular aspect in a person’s life. Depending upon their location in the planetary system, they are considered either beneficent or malefic for an individual. If the positions of planets are beneficent then there’s all round progress and happiness but if the positions are inauspicious then they create disharmony and distress.
