|Here is the history about Vedic Astrology. The Sanskrit word for Vedic Astrology, Jyotish translates as “the knowledge of light”. Jyotish is the one branch of the Vedas. The Vedas are the source teachings of Vedic Indian culture and of a universal spirituality. Their origin predates recorded history more then five thousand years ago. Even though the Vedas are thought to be the oldest books known to mankind, at least five thousands years old, but the "Vedic Sciences" are still practiced today.
The Vedas was cognized by Rishis (“sages”), who passed on their wisdom by telling it to the next generation. The oral tradition continues to this day, although a portion of the information is written down. The Vedas pose questions and answers to our ultimate concerns about life, birth and death, suffering and happiness, poverty and prosperity, consciousness, and the eternal. The Rishis developed six branches (Vedangas) to help us understand the Vedas. Vedic Astrology is one branch created to help us see our way through life with greater clarity. The eighteen sidhantas (documents ) had been written by famous Sages and Vedic astronomers e.g. Surya , Pitamaha , Vayas , Vashishta , Atri , Parashara , Kashyap , Narad , Garg , Mirich Manu , Angira, Lomash , Polish , Chayvan , Yvan , Bhrigu , Shonak , etc
Vedic Astrology is a system used to assess, forecast, and improve the quality of our lives. Vedic Astrologers interpret the observed conditions of the cosmos at the time of our birth to gain insight into the destiny-patterns influencing us. This information is viewed in context of what the birth-chart reveals about our daily lives. Astrology helps align our life course with the universal forces influencing us. Vedic Astrology help us live a more peaceful, conscious, and happy life. Our sense of self, relationships, education, career, finances, health, and spirituality are all intertwined with our likes and dislikes, and with our destiny-patterns.
Relationship compatibility is especially important, since all components of life involve relationships. Vedic Astrologers can analyze a person’s relations with family-of-origin, partner/spouse, children, in-laws, friends, neighbors, teachers, students, employers, employees, business and financial partners and endeavors, and so on.
A central assumption in Vedic Astrology is the existence of free will, without which all helping disciplines would be useless. Misuse of "karma". Karma is mistakenly viewed as our fate, something we are stuck with. From the perspective of the Vedas, karma means both action and reaction. These actions and experiences form our Karma. The word "Karma" simply means action. Destiny is not predetermined. It is determined by our actions, which we can change by using our free will.
The purposes of a Vedic Astrology consultation are to use our conscious free will to learn more about the destiny-patterns influencing our lives, and discuss and implement measures that may help lessen suffering and enhance well-being. The ultimate goals of Vedic Astrology are to help us lead lives more in harmony with our deepest nature, and enhance our awareness of the light of consciousness.
In this way, the Astrology chart is seen as a portrait of our souls Karma - it shows the actions our soul will take and why. It shows what we have learned in past lifetimes, what we need to learn in this lifetime in order to be fulfilled, and most importantly, how to align our intentions with these deeper lessons. By assessing the disposition of the planets, signs, and houses, a Vedic astrologer sees which lessons will be learned with ease and which lessons will be harder to learn.
By using scientific and precise methods developed for thousands of years, Vedic astrologers have become trusted advisors in all areas of life and are respected professionally. Vedic Astrologer makes a chart for prediction that is called Janampati (Horoscope). After reading the horoscope astrologer is able to predict someone’s Past, Present and Future also. Vedic Astrologer follows the principle of Vedic astronomy also for the calculation of the movement of nine planets which is called gochar (transit). Astrology is viewed and practiced as a science in India, not just as a fringe pastime.
By examining the position of your planets, signs, and houses, Nakshtra, Gochar, Mahadsaha, antardasha, a Vedic astrologer sees which lessons will be learned with ease and which lessons will be harder to learn. You can use Vedic Astrology for life's important decisions, such as beginning a new relationship, getting married, starting a business, taking trips, and creating lasting wealth.
Vedic Astrology is very similar to Western Astrology. Both systems use the same planets, houses, and signs. Yet, Vedic Astrology does not traditionally use the three outer planets of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the horoscope or the many asteroids now used in Western Astrology.
Vedic Astrology is based on twelve Rashis (Zodiac sign) twelve Bhavas (Houses) nine grahas (Planets) and twenty seven Nakstras (Distant stars). An important addition to Vedic Astrology is the distant stars. There are twenty seven distant stars, or Nakshatras used. Because the stars are eminent, transcendent forces not in our solar system, the Indian astrologer looks to the Nakshatras to see the soul nature and the deeper cosmic meaning operating behind the planets. Each of these Nakshatras is related to a different deity.
|RASHI - THE SIGNS|
|Sidereal zodiac is also an imaginary belt of 360 degrees (like tropical zodiac), divided into 12 equal parts. Each twelfth part (of 30 degrees) is called sign or rashi.
They also recognize twelve zodiac signs, or Rashis: Number
