In this article, we will go through some of the mantras recited for appeasement of navagrahas.   
Sanskrit word mantra is formed by combining two words- man, meaning "to think / mind" and tra - "tools". Thus, Mantra basically means the combination of words that should be chantedmi before the start of any task so as to make the mind active and focused towards the completion of that task. As each acts of ours is controlled directly through mind, mantras were powerful enough to make the person fly, invisible, teleport etc. All such Indian mantras are Vedic in origin. Since the Vedas are considered eternal and divine, the exact date of Indian mantras is unknown.  
Navagraha mantras
Thousands of mantras can be found in various remedial books written by different authors across the globe. Out of all the mantras that are found in Indian astrological books, the most important ones that outline all other mantras are the Navagraha Mantras. Humans, who strive for materialistic comforts and pleasures, chant Navagraha mantras to ward off the evil influence of planets and imbibe success and prosperity for the successful completion of their important daily life activities. Before starting any special work or embarking on a long journey, Navagraha mantras are chanted according to the astrological position of the planets in his/her birth chart (Kundli).

Navagraha mantras for planets
Ketu(Invisible celestial object) Mantra:
In Hindu literature, Ketu along with rahu are regarded as shadow planets. In fact, Ketu is not the planet but the invisible node, where the moon trajectory round the earth and earth trajectory round the sun intersects in the south direction. Ketu is always 180 degree apart from ‘Rahu’. This is because Rahu was beheaded by lord Vishnu on the complaints of sun/moon for drinking the immortal nectar deceitfully. The lower part of Rahu beneath the neck is known as ketu and hence, always lie 180 degree apart from rahu. Since then, rahu and ketu have been taking revenge by occasionally eating the moon and sun, the phenomenon known as lunar and solar eclipse respectively. Positive influence of ketu makes the person excel in the field of medicine and astrology. This brings in lot of fame, luxury, wisdom and intuition while an unfavorable influence causes poor concentration, weak eyesight, boundless worries, sufferings, and different ailments which affects brain, like Anemia, leprosy, cancer, paralysis etc. Chant the following Ketu mantra to propitiate deity ketu.
AUM Palaash-pushpa-sankaasham Taarak-graha-mastakam
Raudram-raudratmakam Ghoram tam Ketum Pranamaamyaham
Om Ketave namah
My salutations TO Kethu,
Who has the appearance of a Palashaa flower,
Who has a star on his head,
Who is terrible to look at,
And Who is ugly and the soul of terror.
Om, I bow down to Ketu.

Do the above mantras work?
Most of the above mantras were composed by Ved vyaas, author of Mahabharata.
As per my research, Indian astrology is very perfect and its accuracy can be proved scientifically. Below mantras are for those who don’t believe in the effects of chanting mantras.  
Iti Vyaas-mukhot-geetam Yah Padet Su-samaahitah
Diva-vaa-yadi-vaa-raatro Vighn-shaantir-bhavishyati
Those who read the song sung by Vyaas, will be joyous, sovereign and powerful, and will succeed in appeasing obstacles, occurring by day or by night.
Nara-naaree-nripaanam Cha Bhavet Duhswapn-naashanam
Aishwarya-maatulaam Tesham Aarogyam Pushti-vardhanam
Bad dreams of men, women and kings alike will be destroyed and they will be endowed with unparalleled riches, good health and enhancing nourishment.

Graha-nakshatraj Peedaa Taskaraagni-samudbhavaha
Taa-sarvaa-prashamam-yaanti Vyaaso-bhrute-na-sanshayah
All the pain, devastation caused by fire, planets and stars will be of the past, so spoke Vyaas, emphatically.
Iti Shree-Vyaas virachitam Navagraha stotram sampoornam.
Thus ends the song of praise of the nine planets composed by Vyaas.  
Written in Sanskrit, all the above mantras/hymns were composed by the Cosmic Mind of enlightened seers and sages after years of strict penance and extreme propitiation. These mantras are the invaluable treasures gifted to us by enlightened seers for the betterment of humanity. Hope these mantras help you in removing the doshas of planets and let you progress on the path of happiness and spiritual success.
