Mitra, along with Varuna, is lord of the heaven. They are guardians of the world, who sit in a gold hued chariot from day break and behold the infinity. Mitra is associated with the morning light, while Varuna with the night sky. Together they uphold the law, cause the cows to stream and the plants to flourish. They scatter the swift drops and send down the rain-flood. Mitra and Varuna rule Anuradha and Shatabhisha Nakshatras respectively.
Samaranganasutradhara identifies Mitra as, 'Haldhar; the plough bearer' and 'Mali, the Gardener'. Balaram, also known as Baladeva, Balabhadra and Halayudha, may have originated in the Vedic times as a deity of agriculture and fertility. Narratives of Balarama are found in the Mahabharata, Harivamsha Purana, Bhagavata Purana and other Puranas. He is considered an avatar of Aadishesh in Dwapara Yuga, as Lakshman in Tretayuga and as Patanjali (original practitioner who wrote the first book on Yoga Shastra and writer of Mahabhashya to Panini's grammar) in Kaliyuga.
Balram is brother of Lord Krishna. As per Vedic Literature, both of them represent Nar and Narayan, the two faces of Dvaita Sidhant. Lord Krishna is black but represents the Shukla while Balram is fair but represents the Krishna sidhant. One complements the other. Mitra is the God who mantains the natural order which regulates and coordinates the operation of the universe and everything within it. Mitra is responsible for the proper functioning of the natural, moral and sacrificial orders upholding Dharma, and the action of the individual in relation to Karma. It is one of the most important religious conceptions of the "Rigveda".
• Power of stimulation and coordination.
• Power of holding the world together.

This is the binding force that binds Arth, Dharma, Kam and culiminates in Moksha. Mitra expresses itself with The Speed of Garud in Pushpadant and negative mental force of Rahu in Asura with the balancing force of Varuna. Another location to control from and coordinate all zones is Mitra Pada.
In the Rig Veda, he is mostly addressed in the dual as Mitra-Varuna. His association with Varuna is so tight, that there is only one hymn [R.V.3.59] where he is addressed separately. He is the protector of oaths and contracts. Mitra is associated with day and Varuna is connected with night.
If one is feeling alone and is not getting any help from friends, family members (specially wife), adult children, senior employees and others - it shows that the energy of the zone is deficient.
