What is Astrology & how it affects us?


Neha Pradeep Saini 12th Aug 2017


The ancient knowledge of astrology and application of astral remedies can be traced back centuries. Jyothi means light or flame. Ish means god. Jyothish means lord of the light. Vidya means knowledge. Jyothish Vidya is the study of all aspects of planets and luminaries – the Sun and Moon. Jyothish Vidya (Astrology) is prevalent and applicable for the benefit of humanity from time immemorial and its origin can be traced to the origin of life through the mythological and religious revelations


The basis of astrology is Karma theory. Whatever karma we have to face in this life is based on the planetary influences arising in our horoscopes. The horoscope is a map of the heavens (planets) plotted on paper as a chart with the twelve signs of the zodiac placed in twelve numbered houses. From this map of the heavens we can read the planetary influences on human beings, as well as the amount of free will people possess. The strength of the Sun, Mars, Jupiter and the lord of the third house or the planets in the third house show the magnitude of free will.
Humanity has been blessed by divine revelations through the sacred knowledge on various aspects of life including that of the science of light, known as Vedic Astrology. Vedic knowledge is contained in four sacred books, known as Vedas and six additional sections known as Vedangas. These Vedas and Vedangas are the oldest documents describing hymns, sacred incantations, philosophy, religion and literature. The knowledge contained in Vedas and Vedangas is the source of inspiration for scholars in various fields all over the world. These were organized by Rishis – saints having divine vision – for the benefit of the humanity
