The nine planets (or nava graha in Sanskrit) are worshipped as deities in Vedic Astrology. In the body, they facilitate the working of individual karma, while in the world, the unraveling of collective karma. Based on the idea that each of us has traits of Navagraha within us, dancers will explore and use the 9 energies to connect the Self with the Universe. These planets according to Hinduism are: Surya (Sun), Chandra (Moon), Mangala (Mars), Budha (Mercury), Guru/Brihaspati (Jupiter), Shukra (Venus), Shani (Saturn), Rahu & Ketu (North & South Nodes).
