Vedic Astrology – Jyotish, literally means the ‘Science of light’. It is the Light of God.
Vedic astrology, also known as Jyotish Shastra, is a time-honored system of astrology that has its roots in ancient India. It is based on a deep understanding of the movements and positions of celestial bodies such as planets, stars, and the moon, and how these cosmic influences are believed to impact human life and destiny. Vedic astrology operates on the premise that the positions of these celestial entities at the time of your birth can reveal valuable insights into various aspects of your life’s journey.
In Vedic astrology, a birth chart, or “kundali” in Sanskrit, plays a central role. This chart is created by mapping the precise positions of celestial objects at the moment of your birth, including the sun, moon, planets, and specific constellations. The kundali is then used to interpret and analyze various facets of your life, such as your personality traits, career prospects, relationships, health, and even future events.
What sets Vedic astrology apart from Western astrology, which is more commonly known in the West, are that it uses the sidereal zodiac, and its unique calculations, principles, and emphasis on the lunar zodiac system. The lunar zodiac, known as the “Nakshatras,” divides the zodiac into 27 segments based on the moon’s position, providing a more nuanced and detailed perspective on your life’s path.
Vedic astrologers believe that the positions of celestial bodies at the time of a person’s birth can reveal their karma and dharma—past actions and life purpose, respectively. It is considered a tool for self-discovery and guidance, helping individuals make informed decisions and navigate the challenges and opportunities that life presents.
