It seems in the wake of your personal problems, you are going haywire seeking astrological solutions
1) Meditate on Dakshinamurti who is the Adi Guru and also the propagator of shAkta-vidya (shrIvidya).
In that way confusion can be resolved.
2) Mantras should be taken from sampradaya guru who has done purashcharana. Only then, the iSTa-siddhi occurs.
Learning online through books / youtube is not only prohibited but also leads to negative effects if pronounced wrongly.
3) Generally, iSTa-devata mantra should be kept as pradhAna-devata and rest of the mantra-s as Angaa-s to the iSTa chanted as AmnAya-mantras
and should be chanted for iSTa-devata-anugraha.
4) Last but not the least, start sahasra-gayatri japa immediately ASAP.
