Vedic Astrology

"Parashar says: Kaliyug is the mine of faults, but it has only one great virtue – that the people will acquire divine position only by reciting Lord’s name. Recitation of Lord’s name, regardless of Intention and Motivation– whether it is Love, Derision, Laziness or Maliceness- would Destroy One’s Sins.

The Paramgati (Supreme Salvation) that people could receive by Ten Thousand Years of Meditation in Satayug; by performing Yagya for Hundred Years in Tretayug and by Worshipping Lord’s
Idol for Ten Years in Dwapar, that Supreme Salvation is easily available for people in Kaliyug simply by reciting Lord’s Name for One day and One Night continuously. But still, in Kaliyug people would not have Faith in Lord’s Name. It is their Misfortune." (VISHNU PURANA)

Vedic Astrology is the most evolved Divinatory Science in existence. Its origins trace back to the Indus Aryan Vedas, a Divine Body of Knowledge for Living and Enlightenment. Our Knowledge at the Present Time about Astrology are the remnants of what has been passed down through the Brahmanic Priestly Lineage in India and other Ancient Civilizations for the last 5000 Years, but Indian Ancient Astrology existed long before that, in the Original Manifestation of Time and Space.

As a Mystical Spiritual Science, it helps us with our spiritual evolution because it uncovers the destiny of persons at their soul/causal plane. However Jyotish also provides guidance and solutions to every practical, material, psychological, emotional situation that we can possibly experience within our human realm.

Rather than being a fatalistic Science, Jyotish offers us the gift of life. It is a tool to help us understand who we are, where we are going, where we have been and how to make the best use of our time here. It is the guiding light which illumines the brightest path to help us achieve more balance and harmony in our lives.

Difference between Astrology and Astronomy

Astrology and Astronomy may seem like very different fields today, but that was not always the case. Both Sciences of the heavens, at one time they were closely tied together. In fact, the term "Mathematicus" was often used to refer to someone who was very Knowledgeable in Astrology, Astronomy and Mathematics.

Between the Classical Period (500-323 BC) and the Scientific Revolution (around 1543), Astrology played a very important part of Astronomical, Mathematical, Medical and Psychological Training. There were many Well-Known Scientists who practiced or contributed to the Science of Astrology. Nicholas Copernicus, Tycho Brahe and Johannes Kepler all studied Astrology as well as Astronomy.

Hipparchus

Though there is no known documentation showing the that Greek Astronomer Hipparchus wrote about Astrology, he did discover the precession of the Equinoxes during the 2nd century. This phenomenon is caused by the Earth shifting positions as it changes. In turn, it changes the placement of the celestial equator. This discovery played a key role in Astrology. It was author and philosopher Pliny the Elder who, in his Natural History works, hinted that many authors thought Hipparchus was an important figure in Astrology. Pliny himself said Hipparchus could never be sufficiently praised for all he had done to prove that man is related to the star and his soul a part of the heavens.

Nicolaus Copernicus

Famed Astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus studied liberal arts at the University of Cracow between 1491 and 1494. At this time, liberal arts studies included Astronomy as well as Astrology. While there, Copernicus lived briefly with Domenico Maria Novara da Ferrara, the chief Astronomer. He was responsible for creating the yearly Astrological prognostications for the city. It was more a horoscope that focused on both social groups and Italian princes. Copernicus’s disciple Georg Joachim Rheticus said that Copernicus assisted Domenico Maria Novara da Ferrara with the yearly forecast, so one can assume he was familiar with Astrology. Copernicus later studied medicine at the University of Padua in Italy in 1501. As was the custom in that day, those studying medicine also studied Astrology.

Tycho Brahe

A Danish nobleman, Tycho Brahe was an Astronomer, but he was also known as an Astrologer and an alchemist. However, like many Astronomers during his time, he believed that the heavens affected man, however, he was skeptical of charlatans who took advantage of people with their predictions. Tycho himself was interested in weather predictions and produced prognostications of a supernova in 1572 and a comet in 577.

Johannes Kepler

Johannes Kepler was a German Mathematician, Astronomer, Astrologer and writer. He was convinced that the configuration of the planets affected both the weather and man’s personality. Kepler wrote horoscopes as a way to supplement his income. There are still around 800 horoscopes that Kepler made that are still in existence today. In fact, in 1595, Kepler wrote a horoscope that predicted a peasant uprising, a Turkish invasion and a cold spell, which all came true.

When did the separation between Astronomy and Astrology happen? The two Sciences separated with the emergence of the Scientific Revolution. As Astronomy became a more commonly accepted Science, Astrology began being viewed as an occult Science. The Eighteenth and Nineteenth centuries saw an even further separation between the two until they were eventually viewed as two separate fields.

The Vedic Astrology

Vedic Astrology Jyotia is the Hindu System of A (also known as Indian Astrology, Hindu Astrology, and of late, Vedic Astrology). In Sanskrit Jyotia (ज्योतिष), from Jyótis- "Light, Heavenly Body": also anglicized Jyotish and Jyotish, hence, it is also called as The Inner Light. Vedic was the Language used in the Vedas, Four Ancient, Sacred Scriptures on which the Hindu Religion is based.

Jyotish Astrology is one of the oldest forms of Astrology that is not based on another type, but came from independent origins. It uses thoughts that are scientific, psychic, observational, and intuitive. It can offer answers about one’s love life, career, family, finances, or even offer insight into one’s spiritual life. It has traditionally been passed down from father to son or guru to disciple, but today, you can take online classes to familiarise yourself with this type of Astrology.

This form of Astrology is used to forecast event timing i.e., when a person should do something (like start a new career or get married) but also when a person should avoid doing certain things. Jyotish Astrologers use Dashas (Operational Periods of Planets) And Gochara (The Transit of Planets) to determine the optimal timing of an event. Jyotish Astrology differs from western primarily in a couple of ways. Western Astrology, which tends to focus on psychological matters and analysis rather than event timing, uses the tropical Zodiac while Jyotish uses the Sidereal Zodiac.

Ancient Philosophers believe that Brahma created Jyotish Astrology,
although it is believed the current form was written by Maharishi Parashara thousands of years ago. He is known as the father of mainstream Jyotish Astrology and his book, “Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra” is viewed as the essential primer.

Traditionally, it has Three Branches: actually the word Jyotish which belongs to the Vedangas. There are Six Vedangas: Shiksha (Phonetics), Kalpa (Rituals), Vyakarana (Grammar), Jyotishya (Astronomy), Nirukta (Etymology) And Chhandas (Metrics). These are mentioned in the Upanishads. Nirukta has explained as dhyotiti yat tat jyotihi Jyotishm i.e. which enlightens us that type of a flame a Jyoti that is Jyotish.

Jyotish Astrology is often used to make important decisions in India today. People consult Astrologers to choose a new baby’s name based on their Jyotish Chart.

Jyotish Astrology is also used to make important life decisions such as starting a new business, moving into a new home, or getting married.

Jyotish is an ancient System  of Astrology that can be a guide to helping you make important decisions in your life. If you are thinking about making a life changing decision, see what a Jyotish Astrologer has to say about it.

Three Main Branches

The Three Main Branches of Jyotish Astrology are Siddhanta, Samhita, and Hora. Siddhanta deals primarily with Astronomy and how it is used within Astrology. Samhita deals with mundane Astrology, which is that that looks at world affairs and events such as wars, earthquakes, and politics. The third branch is Hora or Predictive Astrology, which is divided into sub branches as well:

·         Jaatak Shaastra/Hora Shaastra: Natal Astrology (Individual Horoscopes)

·         Muhurt or Muhurtha: Electional Astrology (deciding the Best Time to do something based on your Chart)

·         Swar Shaastra: Phonetical Astrology (based on Names and Sounds)

·         Prashna: Horary Astrology (a question is answered based on a Chart for the time and place it was asked)

·         AniJyotish/Kabala: Numerology (the relationship between Numbers and Humans)

·         Nadi Astrology: Nadi Astrologers are able to read a Human’s Past, Present, And Future Lives Based on Writings by Ancient Hindu Sages.

·         Tajik Shaastra/Varsha Phal: Annual Horoscopy (Based On Annual Solar Returns)

·         Jaimini Sutras:Timing of events based on Acharya Jaimini, a famous Indian Astrologer

·         Nastjaatakam: Lost Horoscopy (Reconstructing Lost Horoscopes)

·         Streejaatak: Female Astrology (A Branch Dealing With Female Nativities)

Definition

Siddhanta

Traditional Indian Astronomy.

Samhita

Predicting Important Events based on Analysis of Astrological Dynamics in a Country’s Horoscope or General Transit Events such as War, Earthquakes, Political Events, Financial Positions, Election Astrology; House and Construction related matters (Vāstu Shāstra), Animals, Portents, Omens Etc.

Medini Jyotish

Mundane Astrology

Hora

Predictive Astrology based on Analysis of Natal Horoscopes and the moment a query is made.

The latter two are part of predictive Astrology(Phalita). Conceptually, therefore, Indian Astrology has two branches, Ganita (Siddhanta) and Phalita (Samhita plus Hora).

The foundation of Jyotish is the notion of Bandhu of the Vedas or Scriptures, which is the connection between the microcosm and the macrocosm. The practice of Jyotish primarily relies on the Sidereal Zodiac, which is different from the Tropical Zodiac used in Western Astrology in that an Ayanamsa adjustment is made for the Gradual Precession of the Vernal Equinox. Jyotish includes several Nuanced Sub-Systems of Interpretation and prediction with elements not found in Hellenistic Astrology, such as its System of Lunar Mansions (Nakshatras).

Astrology remains an important facet in the lives of many Hindus. In Hindu Culture, Newborns are Traditionally Named Based on their Jyotish Charts, and Jyotish concepts are pervasive in the organization of the calendar and holidays as well as in many areas of life, such as in making decisions made about marriage, opening a new business, and moving into a new home. To some extent, Astrology even retains a position among the Sciences of Modern India. Following a controversial judgement of the Andhra Pradesh High Court in 2001, some Indian Universities even offer Advanced Degrees in Astrology. 

Saga

The term Jyotia in the sense of one of the Vedanga, the Six Auxiliary Disciplines of Vedic Religion, is used in the Mundaka Upanishad and thus likely dates to Mauryan Times. The Vedanga Jyotish redacted by Lagadha dates to the Mauryan Period, with rules for tracking the Motions of the Sun and the Moon.

The documented history of Jyotishs  begins with the interaction of Indian and Hellenistic Cultures in the Indo-Greek period. The oldest surviving treatises, such as the Yavanajataka or the Brihat-Samhita, date to the early Centuries CE. The oldest Astrological treatise in Sanskrit is the Yavanajataka ("Sayings of the Greeks"), a versification by Sphujidhvaja in 269/270 CE of a now lost translation of a Greek treatise by Yavanesvara during the 2nd century CE under the patronage of the Western Satrap Saka King Rudradaman I.

The first named authors writing treatises on Astronomy are from the 5th century CE, the date when the classical period of Indian Astronomy can be said to begin. Besides the theories of Aryabhata in the Aryabhatiya and the lost Arya-Siddhānta, there is the Pancha-Siddhāntika of Varahamihira.

The main texts upon which classical Indian Astrology is based are early medieval compilations, notably the Bhat Parāśara Horāśāstra, and Sārāvalī by Kalyāavarman. The Horashastra is a composite work of 71 chapters, of which the First Part (Chapters 1-51) Dates to the 7th to early 8th Centuries and the Second Part (Chapters 52-71) to the later 8th Century. The Sārāvalī likewise dates to around 800 CE. English translations of these texts were published by N.N. Krishna Rau and V.B. Choudhari in 1963 and 1961, respectively.

Historically, the study of Astrology in India was an important factor in the development of Astronomy in the Early Middle Ages.

Rāshis – The Zodiac Signs

Rāshi (Sanskrit: Rāśi, ‘Part’.) In Jyotish, the Zodiac is called Kalpurusha, the Eternal Time that has no beginning or end. In the Vedas, the Ecliptic is referred to as the Sudarshan Chakra, the Wheel in the Hand of Lord Vishnu, the Creator of the Universe. The Entire Chakra is 360°, and is divided into 12 rāshis of 30° each, representing 12 Constellations that are the Zodiac signs. The progression through the Zodiac signs represents the cosmic evolution of the soul. Jyotish uses the Sidereal Zodiac.

 Daśā-s – The Planetary Periods

Dasha (दशा, Sanskrit, Daśā, ‘Planetary Period’.) The Dasha System  shows which planets will be ruling at particular times in Jyotish. There are several Dasha Systems; however, the primary System  used by Astrologers is the Vimshottari Dasha System . The First Maha Dasha is determined by the Position of the Natal Moon. Each Maha Dasha is divided into Subperiods called bhuktis. Vimshottari Dasha lengths are:

Gochara (Sanskrit: Gochara, ‘Transit’.) In Jyotish, a natal Chart shows the actual positions of the grahas at the moment of birth. Since that moment, the grahas have continued to move around the Zodiac, interacting with the natal Chart grahas. This period of interaction is called Gochara.

 Yogas – The Planetary Combinations

Yoga (Sanskrit: Yoga, ‘Union’.) In Jyotish, yogas are planetary combinations placed in specific relationships to each other.

Kalasarpa Yoga is a Dangerous yoga. if all planets (excepting Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) are 1-side of Rahu & Ketu, It Becames Kala-Sarpa Yoga.
