Introduction to Vedic Astrology:
According to the traditional Hindu astrological system in India, the word “Jyotisha” comes from the Sanskrit “jyótis”, which means “light, heavenly body”. In India, astrological analysis is mainly based on Hindu astrological theory. These fields of knowledge, especially Jotish, the science of light, are ancient and have existed since Vedic times. All of them are related to the celestial and astral models, which, according to Vedic astrology, determine the fate of man. The theory is that everything in this world and beyond is interconnected. A person’s destiny is determined by their karma, which determines their past, present, and future and is cyclical. The human body only serves as an epithet by which the soul passes from one body to another in different births at different times and in different places. Vedic astrology believes that the birth of this planet is like the opening of a flower; it is related to the season, time of day, and refers to the most suitable conditions.
THE ROLE OF THE NATIONAL MAP IN VEDICAL ASTROLOGY:
In Jyotish Vidya, the individual birth chart is the most important consideration. A birth chart is considered a road map that guides fortune tellers through the human zodiac and helps predict the future correctly. Birth cards are made based on the time and place of birth of the person. This analysis is based on the position of the planets at a given point in time. According to India’s best Vedic astrologers, this position ultimately represents a person’s “dash”, or life line that they will follow throughout their life. Therefore, the house, planet and zodiac sign in your natal chart indicate events that are about to occur and your dasha will tell you when they will occur. In Vedic astrology, the individual is seen not only as a sun sign but also as a human character. Birth charts are studied by practitioners of Vedic astrology at the beginning with “ascending”, the body that grows in the earth’s firmament at the time of one’s birth. The images of planets and stars in the natal chart clearly define the relationship of man to other planets and his personality.
HOW IS VEDIC ASTROLOGY DIFFERENT FROM WEST ASTROLOGY?
Western astrology has always paid attention to the position of the planets and their influence on human life. Western astrology was developed by the Greeks 2000-3000 years ago and they believed that the sun, which is the center of the solar system, has the deepest connection with planet earth. This particular fireball affects the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn on Earth, which in turn affects all living things that survive on this planet. For this reason, western astrology is also known as tropical astrology. This branch of astrology believes that the New Year begins on or around March 22, and this day marks the beginning of spring, as well as the vernal equinox, a day on which day and night are of equal duration. During Roman rule, January 1 was declared the start of the new year. However, this particular rule does not play a role in the field of astrology. It is also said that Aries, which is considered the first sign of the zodiac, is placed during the vernal equinox, followed by the other signs of the zodiac.
Vedic astrology has always been concerned with the stars and is very ancient and different from western astrology. This is 5000 year old science that doesn’t mark the sign as the first sign or talk about how to start or stop counting the twelve zodiac signs. In contrast, Vedic astrology is based more on the sidereal zodiac, fixed stars or constellations, which ultimately help to calculate all the movements of the planets. They didn’t study Earth’s relationship to the sun, but they said they made a mistake because of the dynamic equinox. Vedic astrology always talks about “Ayanamsha” – the rotation of the earth around its axis over the years. Every year the equinox moves forward by almost a minute due to the constant vibration of all the planets. So every 72 years a day is lost in the revolution of the earth. There are recipes in Vedic astrology, and as a result, the twelve zodiac signs have to adjust and withdraw one day in order for the predictions to make more sense.
