Although to be successful in life, hard work and determination ‘to get there’, is given credit; but the role of luck cannot be undermined. While luck can be both bad and good, how it affects us matters. Bad luck of missing a flight turns out to be good, when you are suddenly called back for a plum project or if unfortunately that flight gets hijacked.
Nobody; but nobody; continuously has luck favouring him/her all their life. In the same vein, bad luck does not fall in someone’s lap throughout his/her life. Everybody has their own ups and downs. The best way to be happy in life is to enjoy the luck when it is good and stay positive when things go downhill. Another way is to take the help of astrologers in finding ways to lessen the impact of bad luck.
Think of life’s journey as a walk in the meadow during springtime. Bad luck would then be if it suddenly starts pouring. To prevent yourself from getting drenched; you would ideally reach out for an umbrella. But even this umbrella cannot completely stop you from still getting a little wet.
The umbrellas represent remedies that the astrologers suggest for you to follow during your bad luck period. While they cannot stop bad luck from falling on anyone, they can provide solutions in the form of umbrellas.
According to Hindu texts, ‘Luck’ is the derivation of the Sanskrit word, ‘Lakshmi’, who is the Goddess of money and fortune.
Why is it that some people are ‘lucky enough’ to have lots of good luck while others seem to be having less?

According to Vedic astrology, luck, for any person is determined by his horoscope. A horoscope is an astrological chart drawn with the help of the position of the Sun, Moon and planets at the time of the native’s birth while keeping in mind, the other astrological aspects too. The ninth house in the birth chart or horoscope is related to fortune or luck.
Vedic astrology gives onus for good and bad luck to some specific planetary combinations in the birth chart which are called ‘Doshas’ and ‘Yogas’.
‘Doshas’ occur because of the unfavourable position of the planets in the houses of the native’s birth chart. While most Doshas are caused by the unfavourable position of Mars in the chart, many are formed by the unfavourable placement of other planets like Sun, Saturn and Rahu.
While some Yogas are auspicious, others are inauspicious. While the former bring good luck to the native, the later is harbinger of bad luck. Some auspicious Yogas are-
Sarvartha Siddhi Yoga
Amrit Siddhi Yoga
Ravi Pushya Yoga
Guru Pushya Yoga
Some inauspicious Yogas are-
But one should not be disheartened by the presence of the Doshas and inauspicious Yogas because there are remedies available for reducing the unfavourable effect of these.
