Jyotisha or Vedic astrology is the ancient astrology of India. It has an unbroken lineage going back over five thousand years. Jyotisha is derived from the Sanskrit word Jyoti meaning “light”. Thus, Jyotisha is often referred to as the science of light, for it helps us to see the past, present and future clearly as well as giving us insight into who we are and how to best actualize our potential.
Vedic astrology along with yoga, meditation and ayurveda originates from the Vedas. The Vedas, meaning knowledge or wisdom, are a large body of texts developed by the ancient sages of India to help humanity in achieving happiness, peace and fulfillment and to relieve suffering that arises along the way.
Vedic astrology has a strongly predictive focus. For thousands of years people have been going to Vedic astrologers asking when they would get married, have children and meet with professional success. All of this information can be seen form the Vedic birth chart which is derived using the birth date, time and place of the native. However, Vedic astrology is much more than a way to see into the future, it is a great vidya or means to gain clarity that is an integral part of an ancient and profound belief system.
The philosophy behind Vedic astrology is that we are spirit beings that incarnate into a physical body as a way of evolving ourselves toward enlightenment. The Vedic birth chart is a a map or blueprint of the karma or actions that we are likely to take in this lifetime as well as situations that will arise both positive and negative based on the culmination of karma or actions from past lives. The chart shows us how this karma will unravel through time. It shows every aspect of ourselves: our unconscious motivations or psychology, what we love and are passionate about, what makes us feel safe and secure, what our fears are and what we desire. The chart indicates what our birth was like, what are parents are like, whether we are an adventurer or prefer being at home with a book and a cup of tea. The chart tells us if we are a teacher, an advisor, an artist, a leader, a hard worker or prefer to indulge in the pleasure of life. It is all there in the chart from top to bottom.
Vedic astrology is a great tool for offering us guidance at any stage of our lives. It can help us answer the mundane questions of love, marriage, health, money, success and more, but at a deeper level, it can allow us to know ourselves better, help promote spiritual growth. give us insight into the numerous ways in which our own karmic impressions are scheduled to manifest and enhance our use of free will ultimately leading to greater success and happiness.
