Kumara swamy, Murugan
This karthikeya name is common in North India. Because Murukan was brought up by the Krttikā maidens, he is known as Kārttikeya. The Kumāra Tantra depicts Kārttikeya with six faces and six hands. Two hands are in the abhaya and varada poses and in the remaining four hands he bears the weapons of śakti, sword, thunderbolt, and shield. He is said to shine like the morning sun. Murugan is very powerful in reducing or removing the ill effects of kuja( mars), rahu and ketu planets in your horoscope
