Mantra is the main tool for working on the mind in yoga, ayurveda and Vedic astrology. It is perhaps the most important technique of all Vedic sciences. Mantra is the basis of the entire Vedic language and way of thought, which is mantric in nature.
Mantra is probably the most direct way to balance the energy of the planets within us—in effect attuning us to the music of the spheres. It can reach planetary forces hidden behind our mind and life energy, down to the deepest layers of our being. Mantra is always worthy of consideration when we are seeking how to balance planetary energies. Astrological mantras are something we can do for ourselves, with no expense and with little in the way of side effects, unless we try to use them for selfish or harmful purposes.
The planets project powerful cosmic forces, both positive and negative, which influence us on all levels. They are not just material or chemical sources of light, but the source of subtle mental and emotional energies. They are lords of fate, karma and destiny that we must approach with reverence and respect. Their mantras are their names through which we can connect to their inner being. Their mantras are not simply sounds to repeat or formulas that work of their own accord. They require deep regard for, if not devotion to the divine forces working through the planets, the planetary Gods and Goddesses. So please bear in mind our discussion of these planetary beings when you consider the role of mantra.  
Initiation into astrological mantras usually follows a ritual worship of the planet and is done at a favorable time and place. Mantras are usually given as part of a spiritual tradition or lineage and received from a guru. A mantra from one who has not practiced it or who does not have the shakti (power) of the mantra is not likely to yield its full effects.
Astrological mantras, however, do not have stronger it becomes. A well trained Vedic astrologer should know any examination of the karmas involved. A Vedic astrologer should practice Vedic planetary mantras on a regular basis, preferably every day before seeing clients or studying charts.
Mantras have more latitude in their application than gemstones, which are mainly used for strengthening weak planets in the chart. Mantras can be used to increase the positive influence of benefic planets, yet can also serve to decrease the negative influence of malefic planets. Mantra works either way while gems are more safely used to increase positive planetary influences.   

Bija Mantras
The most important and powerful of all mantras are single syllable or bija (seed) mantras like OM. Bija mantras are primal sounds that carry an integrated concentration of both sound and meaning from which all language and the very forces of creation arise. They can create a great force of transformation that penetrates deep into the subconscious mind, reaching the very causal body or karmic sphere of the soul. Bija mantras have an energetic effect that works well with pranayama and silent meditation. As such, they can be more powerful than prayers, which rely more on thought and intention. Bija mantras may be used by themselves or combined with other mantras, in which case they serve to energize them more strongly.
OM is the foremost of all bija mantras and has a wide astrological application. OM in the Vedas relates to the Sun and to light in general. The Upanishads say that the Sun chants OM as it moves in the sky. OM is the sound of the essential cosmic vibration transmitted through the Sun and all the Stars. It also relates to the planet Jupiter as the Sun and all the stars. It also relates to the planet Jupiter as the cosmic guide or guru and to the moon as the light of the mind.
OM is the syllable of ‘assent’ that allows us to harmonize with everything. In this regard, OM in Sanskrit also means ‘yes’. Chanting OM allows us to affirm any planetary influence that we want to bring into our lives. Whatever planet we chant OM to, we energize its light and affirm its power.
Whatever planet we chant OM in regard to; we enter into its upward movement and contact its evolutionary force.
In addition, the mantra OM clears the mind at a deep level, making it receptive to higher influences. That is why all longer mantras begin with OM; it creates the foundation.

 USAGE OF PLANETARY MANTRAS
Planetary name mantras are used to gain the powers of the planets for either spiritual or worldly goals. They aid in the fulfillment of the intention with which they are done.

For example, if we repeat a mantra for the planet Jupiter to facilitate its wealth-giving properties, it will promote that for us. If we do one to it to facilitate its wisdom-giving power, it will aid in the direction. However, we must be careful that we seek through the mantra because we sill energize our minds on that level of karma. Generally, we should primarily seek spiritual goals through mantras for the universal good.

Planetary mantras should be chanted 108 times (or 1080 times) on a daily or weekly basis (on the day of the planet particularly). Generally, one should repeat them up to 100,000 times over a period of one to three months if one wants to effectively empower them. The mantra can be repeated mentally, thought it is good to repeat it audibly at first until one is used to the sound, then to repeat it with a low voice, like a whisper until the sound is quite familiar.
Another method is to just use the bija mantra for the planet and not recite the full planetary name mantra, like repeating the bija SUM for the Sun. this is easier and quicker and yet remains very effective. Such name and bija mantras, which are easy to pronounce, are the best to give to clients who want to use mantras but find longer mantras hard to pronounce.
These mantras can be used to aid in the purification of gemstones or with rituals like yajnas and pujas. Besides focusing planetary mantra, we can repeat the entire set of all nine planetary mantras as a way to increasing our inner growth and developing all the higher qualities that the planets can represent.
It is important to afford such reverence to the planets on a regular basis, particularly to those planets whose influence one most needs to harmonize. Being mindful of the planets is a yogic observance that has many benefits. That is why an astrologer is often blessed, for in giving reverence to the planets, the planets give their grace to the astrologer as well.


SHAKTI MANTRAS FOR THE PLANETS
Besides the name mantras for the planets are certain powerful (shakti) single-syllabled mantras. These shakti mantras are special bija or seed mantras with a wide application in yogic teachings. Most have special planetary correspondence (like SHRIM and the Moon), but can be used for all the planets relative to the general qualities or connections that they invoke and create. As shaktis of feminine energies, each connects to its own special form of the Goddess. Most are dominated by the sound ‘ee’ (Sanskrit long-I sound) which grants ruling power. Such powerful mantras should be taken up only with due care, proper guidance, suitable initiation and intuitive insight.
