Astrology / Jyotish
We all have heard the phrase "pre destined", but have you really tried to find out what is pre destined in your life and how is it going to play out? Believe it or not, your destiny can be revealed to you based on your birth time and place, and we are not just talking about your personality and character, but very specific events in your life.
What is Vedic astrology?
Vedic astrology as we know, has its roots in ancient scriptures of Rig Veda. Astrology was considered vedanga, one of the six branches of vedas. Much like all the old teachings, astrology was passed on verbally from one generation to the next by a guru to his disciples. It was only around the 5th century when scholars like Parashara, Vaharamihira, Kalyan Verma and Mantreswar came out with their books; Brihat Hora Parashara Shastra, Brihat Jatak, Saravali and Phadeepika, that Vedic astrology spread far and wide.
In India astrology was initially used to predict the weather pattern and to determine auspicious dates for certain ceremonies to be performed by the kings or a nobles family. The mass use of astrology gained popularity much later. With the advent of technology and the borders shrinking between countries, Vedic astrology has now traveled far and wide to countries like USA, Russia, EU, Australia and many others. Vedic astrologers in USA like Marc Boney and David Frawley have made a lasting impression in the minds of seekers in the west. There have been many fine astrologers from India residing in USA and Russia, who are doing great astrological service and teaching in those countries.
One of the most common question that is often times asked is, what is the basic difference between western and Vedic astrology. The answer to that is quite simple yet technical. But in short the signature difference is the fact that the Vedic system of astrology is very easily able to pin point events in the life of a person which are very specific. Events like marriage, child birth, job change, buying a house, can be very easily predicted with the help of Vedic astrology
Vedic astrology or jyotish has the capability to accurately pin point events in your life that can range from life changing to almost mundane. Events like marriage, job change, childbirth, purchase of a house, relocation etc can be easily seen through vedic astrology. Most people wonder, if it is predestined then why do we need to know? My answer to that is very simple, if it is a positive event, it will give you motivation in life and something to look forward to. On the contrary, if it is a negative event, then it prepares and enables you to take action accordingly.
We all know that life is never static, it has its ebbs and flows and with the help of astrology our endeavor is to make your life less rocky so you have a smooth sailing.
May lord Ganesha always guide you in your life's journey.
