“A child is born on that day and at that hour when the celestial rays are in mathematical harmony with his individual karma. His horoscope is a challenging portrait, revealing his unalterable past and its probable future results. But the natal chart can be rightly interpreted only by men of intuitive wisdom: these are few.”
Vedic Astrology is one of the oldest sciences which clearly elucidates the position of the Planets and their motions with respect to the timings and also explains the effect it has on humans and others on earth. The basic tenet of Indian astrology comes from the study of astral bodies during one’s birth time. Vedic astrology strongly believes that the clear position of stars and planets during the birth indicates the entire journey of his or her life and it also brings to the fore the consequences of the various acts and deeds done during the past lives.
It is imperative to note that the plants and stars do not cause or responsible for what one experiences in one’s life, but they help and assist, measure, interpret the actions.
It can be said to a large extent that Astrology remains an important facet of folk belief in the contemporary lives of many Hindus. Newborns in hindu households are named based on their charts (Kundali). Astrological concepts deep rooted in the organization of the various calendar and it plays a major part in major decision making processes viz .. marriage, starting a new venture, or moving into a new house. Many Hindus strongly believe that the planets, play a major influence right through the life of an individual, and tthese are on account of past Karma. Thus, it is believed that these planets can influence earthly life and it would be prudent not to accumulate more sins and accumulate dirt in this life so that karmic effects are reduced and attainment of salvation and bliss can be realised
It is a very vast and deep-rooted subject and it is a mathematics of life and studies in details the past actions. It cannot be used to achieve material progress and to use it as a superstitious guide, will be doing grave injustice to this amazing science. It is only in a subtle manner that we can co-relate the stars to the human physical body. The relation of the stars to the human body is very subtle. It can be said that the rays of the earth and universe act upon our body, and the body responds to those rays appropriately.
It is said that there is a constant relationship which is very interactive between the stars and the rays around our physical body, and also between the twelve centres in the spine — the spinal plexuses which are called Chakras. Ae as humans have the divine ability to withstand the evil vibrations that may happen and it will have no bearing on us since we can impervious to the rays which brings negative energy. However, if we indulge in wrong doing and transgress from the righteous path we have no option but to suffer agony and feel the pressure of difficulties.
It is imperative to note that while studying astrology we should remember that God’s influence is the supreme influence and by communing with God in meditation, we will reinforce the power of the twelve chakras. By regular prayers we can lead a harmonius life and we will find that all Planetary forces are in tune with us and there is an outpouring of goodness. It can be called as “spiritualizing astrology.” If we can retain our equanimity and keep our smile in spite of all the hardships and difficulties it shows the the awakening of the consciousness of divinity within us.
