Secrets of Vedic Astrology?

Vedic astrology is a complete study of the correlation that defines the relationship between cosmic entities and human life. It has indeed given varied theories to authenticate the claim and build some awestruck revelations. All of it started with the ancient Indian science of Astrology which in Sanskrit means “Jyotish”. If you happen to go through ancient scriptures, ‘Jyotisha’ is purely based on the belief, that our lives are directly connected with stars and planets.

According to Vedic astrology, there are 27 planetariums consisting of 12 zodiac signs, 9 planets, and 12 houses, each of which represents each core aspect of human life. According to the Date and Time of birth, these 12 signs are distributed in 12 houses and 9 planets are respectively placed in various houses depending on the reading at that particular longitude and latitude forming the correlation. This visual representation is known as a ‘Kundali’ or ‘Janam Kundali’ which is commonly known as an ‘Astrological Chart’.

5 things to know about Vedic astrology

  • Origins of Vedic astrology

  • How we are affected by the planets
  • Destiny vs. free will

#1. Origins of Vedic astrology

According to Vedas, India’s ancient system of knowledge, Sanatan life, and learning have the belief that the stars and planets have a direct connection to our lives. Vedic astrology teaches us, spiritual growth is part of our daily life.

The Vedas say that the planets and stars change position as per our deeds i.e. “karma”. Science of calculating future events means that Vedic astrology is the first tool in the universe to be used to calculate and understand all possibilities of life events of an individual like growth, success, prosperity, family love, healthy life, etc.

#2. East vs. West astrology

I’m sure you must have seen the “Daily Horoscope” section in a newspaper or in an online article, and I am truly saying that there is nothing related to Vedic astrology. In Western and Vedic astrology, the constellation is the main difference between them. Now we understand how both astrology view constellations.

Both Vedic and Western astrology create horoscopes and make predictions on the basis of the ecliptic path followed by the planets. The Ecliptic plane shifts its position around 1 degree every 72 years. In every 2000 years, position of the sun and planets change their ecliptic plane and lose their relation to the old ecliptic plane.

Vedic astrologer’s predictions and calculations of horoscope based on the updated ecliptic path. Whereas, Western astrologers make their predictions on the basis of the old ecliptic plane.

#3. How we are affected by the planets

According to Vedas, everyone and everything is controlled by time, our lives are influenced by time. Individuals are automatically drawn through different phases of existence before they are born into the next life, the status of which is determined by their collected karma.

In modern science, time and space are connected with each other and they create the fabric in which we exist, this phenomenon is known as space-time. Large objects like planets, interfere in this fabric and affect everything around them. And our life lies on this fabric that is why stars and planets affect our life.

#4. Destiny vs. free will

In the manner of Vedas, Destiny is one of those things where our future is determined, and another is Free will that gives us the freedom to choose our actions. Destiny refers to the unforeseen situations that we face in our life, on the other hand, free will is the action and reaction that we choose to deal with the situations. Dharma, Artha, Kama, and Moksha are the four goals of human life recognized by the Vedas.

You can say, karma is based on our free will and destiny. Vedic astrology helps us to understand our nature and destiny, Vedas can help us to reach these (Dharma, Artha, Kama, and Moksha) four goals in our life. Ultimately, it will help us in our psychological development to achieve the ultimate goal called Moksha.
