In Sanskrit, the word jyotish means light.
Jyotish Vedic astrology is the science of light and astral patterns that determine our destiny. The light of the stars travels to us for a long time, but it affects our lives.
Vedic astrology is widespread in India, and recently it has become more popular worldwide, since, according to «experts», it allows you to get more accurate data than Western schools of astrology on the character and destiny of a person.
A breaf history
Vedic astrology originated in ancient India 3000 years before Current Era and is based on ancient Vedic texts that are more than 5000 years old. Such as treatises: “Parashara-hora-sastra”, “Surya-siddhanta”, “Brihad-jataka” and others.
Even before the emergence of Jyotish, the Vedas appeared in ancient India. This is a collection of sacred texts meaning knowledge about the world order. The planets of the solar system, named after the Indian gods, participate in the Vedic astrological texts.
Vedic astrology, as well as the science of yoga, was discovered by the insights of the ancient sages of the Maharishi. They came down to earth 5,000 years ago to accompany the Supreme God Krishna. Their names are found on the pages of the Mahabharata.
Jyotish is the science of luminaries about the light of celestial bodies that affect a person’s life from the moment of his birth. In the treatise “Parashara-hora-shastra”, its author Maharisha Parashara Muni not only describes the horoscope of birth, but also how to construct and interpret the horoscope of conception.
Vedic astrology is the science of the luminaries of the stars and planets, the divine light that illuminates people’s lives.
Vedic astrology is a much older system than the Western one and differs in that it uses a fixed Zodiac instead of a moving one.
The basic principle of Vedic astrology is the ancient knowledge that everything in the world is interconnected.
Western astrology builds its research on the basis of the position of the sun relative to the zodiac and other planets. In Vedic astrology, the Moon plays a central role and it is considered more difficult to study.
In Vedic astrology , there are several directions:
– Jataka – astrology of birth;
– Prashna – astrology of the question;
– Muhurta – selection of a favorable time for events and decision-making.
In addition, there are such directions as:
– Gola – observational astronomy of granite;
– Methods of calendar calculations;
– Nimitta – astrology of omens.
In Vedic astrology, a special ascending sign that appears on the horizon at the moment of a person’s birth plays an important role and is called an ascendant.
To determine this sign, you need the exact time of birth, since the ascendant moves every two hours.
