The Upagrahas are stars, or constellations counted from the one occupied by the sun, at any given time. They are 8 in number. when planets are placed in any of these 8 Upagrahas then they cause obstacles in all undertakings. The more the planets in these Upagrahas, then greater is the intensity of the bad results.
However, each Upagrahas has been allotted a planet and these obstacles caused by the Upagrahas can be overcome by doing shanti of the relevant planet, which can also be said to be the lord of the Upagrahas.
