Planets are moving objects and transmit or reflect light. Hence, they emanate vibrations as well as some kind of rays which have influence on other objects, physical bodies and mind. Based on statistical study of these influences, astrological predictions have been devised (although prediction based on planetary positions is not allowed in the Vedas, the origin of astrology).
Planets do not emanate negative or positive vibrations or rays. They just emanate these vibrations by virtue of their movements and light reflections. As these vibrations may or may not be compatible with the vibrations of individual beings they are said to be negative or positive. Normal human beings (not evolved in higher consciousness) believe in planetary influence are the ones who get affected the most by the vibrations of these planets. However, those strong in their inner self neutralise the effect of the vibrations.
It is something like this: During hot summer, those people walking in the streets would have high chance of having sun stroke. One can protect oneself from sun stroke by using an umbrella. Even though the sun is emanating the same intensity of light, heat and destructive rays one will still get protected.
Hot Sun can be equated to the so called adverse planetary position of say, Shani or Rahu Ketu.
Planets are only objects and they do not have the power of consciousness but we, human beings, are subjects and have the power of consciousness within us. We have the power to emanate vibrations of the highest intensity. We however have to invoke our hidden potential by way of prayers, meditation, mantra chanting and by being positive.
Create a protective shield of vibratory aura all around you through the above means and live happily without worrying about planets taking control of your life.
