Vedic Astrology

Vedic astrology is the modern name for an ancient system of astrology known in Sanskrit as "Jyotish" - "Jyoti" being light and "isha" being lord. Jyotish thus translates into "the Lord of Light" or "the Knowledge of Light". Modern science now confirms that all matter/physical universe is based upon light and its interplays which would make Jyotish "the science of light".

Vedic Astrology is a science dating back to more than 5000 years. Its earliest origins can however be traced back to the beginning of the manifest Universe. It passed down through the ages as an orally transmitted knowledge and formed an important part of the Vedas, one of the prime manuscripts containing the spiritual tradition of India.

Vedic Scriptures known as 'Vedas' describe Jyotish as 'the Eye of the Vedas'. The world is always there but we cannot see it without our eyes - in the same way Jyotish is the light which illumines the universal knowledge encapsulated in the Vedas.

The Ancient Sages who according to Vedic Mythology are the mind born sons of Brahma (one of the Trinity, the Creator of the Universe in Vedic Mythology), were privy to the secrets and functionings of the Universe and transmitted their knowledge orally to their disciples.

The instructions of one such Sage by the name of Parashara were put into text around 3000 years ago. These writings form the backbone of present day Vedic Astrology.

Vedic Astrology is thus the earliest form of Astrology and is a system that has changed very little over the course of time. Its precision and accuracy as a divination science is unrivalled even today. Its western counterpart, known as Western Astrology has its roots in the Roman civilisation. The Romans derived it from the Greeks who in turn derived it from the Egyptians. Many scholars now believe that Astrology travelled to Egypt through the middle east (Babylonian culture). Babylonians had a strong connection with the Vedic civilisation flourishing in the northwestern region of the Indian subcontinent and so it can be said that their Astrology was very similar if not completely identical to Jyotish.

The modern day Western Astrology was deeply influenced by the Theosophical Movement. Theosophists as we know were channelling their information from the East - mainly India and Tibet. Somehow over the last century many faults crept into this evolving system such as the use of the astronomically inaccurate Tropical Zodiac. Tropical Zodiac used in Western Astrology was relevant 2000 years ago but is no longer valid. There is no point in analysing a chart which does not correspond to the actual heavenly positions of the planets and signs. It is similar to playing music on an out of tune instrument! Vedic Astrology is much more extensive and vast than its western counterpart. It is unquestionably the foremost among all divination methods and sciences.

It requires a serious and deep study with an open attitude from all the intellectual and inquisitive minds to uncover its magic. To all the critics of Astrology we suggest that they take a good look at the functionings of Vedic Astrology before they dismiss it as nonsense.

History bears testament to the fact that the greatest scientific minds like Ptolemy, Newton and Galileo all practised Astrology. It is interesting to note that Ancient Vedic Sages knew about most of the astronomical phenomena including the precession of the earth's axis thousands of years before modern astronomy came to know about it and used it in their calculations.

The present day Vedic Astrology is comprised of different systems delineated by different Sages, which are complementary to each other thereby adding to its richness. Vedic Astrology covers every area of human existence and can give accurate results down to the minute. Vedic Astrology encompasses everything ranging from psychology, healing, prediction,religion and spirituality to everyday affairs. Every birth is sacred and brings with it both positive and difficult karma which influence our Character, Talents, Relationships, Career ,Finance, Health and Spiritual nature.

There is nothing one cannot improve or change through greater self understanding and right application. Upon this foundation one can take responsibility for one's Self and direct one's life in a more positive and meaningful manner. Vedic Astrology helps you do exactly that.

Use Astrology To Put Your Power Team Together

Most people do well within the positions that they enjoy?positions that they can make a difference and feel proud of their accomplishments weather it?s in the forefront or behind the scenes. If people are placed within the best position within an organisation, club, or group it can succeed by leaps and bounds!

Here?s the formula:

In short; there are four elements in which the astrological signs divide by. Along with the four elements are also the properties in which the signs share : (Please note that all the below attribute is just a summary. For a better understanding it?s best to familiarise yourself with all the astrological properties and terms)

Creativity, passion, risk-taking, foreign business, entertainment, healing professions, supervisory roles and aggressive roles etc. (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)

Money, banking, investing, gardening, fashion, farming, clergy, masonry, jewellery, etc. (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)

Communication, teaching, transportation, intellectual pursuits, printing etc. (Aquarius, Gemini, Libra)

Imagination, intuition, aquatics, medicine, security, music, hospitality management etc. (Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio)

These people will most likely prefer to move in one direction. This is a good thing if you want to get things done as they can be unstoppable hence completing a project. Look for this trait in an Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn

Not really into ?change?. Change is usually regarded as a big effort in life to them. These great people are loyal, patient, They make great leads in team building. Just remember that you must agree on the ethics as they like to have it they?re way or not at all. The ones from this club are Taureans, Leos, Scorpios and Aquarians.

These people can multitask! IF you?re looking for steadiness you find it here. They work best in start up ventures They can help spark the interest in any project and should be hired for product launching or entrepreneurial ventures. These energy folks are Geminis, Virgos, Sagittarians and Pisces.

So the next time you decide to start a project see if the stars agree first and notice the difference in the outcome! For a more in depth interpretation it would be best to work with individual charts but if you use the above information I?m sure you?ll have a happy staff!

Many Blessed Stars to You and Staff!

Western Astrology For Love Compatibility Analysis

There has been a number of times when clients ask me why do I use Western Astrology in love compatibility. Is western astrology really accurate? Some tell me it's not. But based on personal experience, there is some truth in it.

What are the ways of analysing compatibility using Western Astrology? There may be more, but I know of 3 methods of doing it. You will learn about each method as you go along...

The first and most common method is by comparing the signs of the couple. The compatibility is based on whether the signs belong to the same element.

Let me list them out for you...

Aries,Leo and Sagittarius are FIRE signs.

Taurus,Virgo and Capricorn are EARTH signs.

Gemini,Libra and Aquarius are AIR signs.

Cancer,Scorpio and Pisces are WATER signs.

For example,if you are born under Aries and you partner is a Leo or Sagittarius, then you are considered very compatible. The most compatible are those from the same element signs as you. The next choice are those who belong to the same element as the sign opposite to you.

Let's use Aries as another example. The opposite of Aries is Libra. Libra is an AIR sign. Therefore the next compatible signs for Aries other than the FIRE signs are the AIR signs.

This method is not very accurate as it's too general. But it gives you a rough gage and it's very easy to use.

Now for the second method...

The second method is a little more complicated. But it's far more accurate. This method is still considered easy. You just need to have a Moon Sign Chart with you.

The first method involves the SUN SIGN only. This method involves the MOON SIGN as well.

Have you ever came across this scenario? You know two people who are born under the same sign. But their character and personalities are world's apart? Then you start wondering why...

The reason for this is because their MOON SIGN is different. The MOON SIGN is like a secondary personality. An Aries person may not behave like one. He may not be aggressive or determined or showy because he is under the influence of his MOON SIGN. Which in this case may be a more retiring one.

How do you analyse compatibility using this 2nd method? It's simple.

Step 1: You need both parties' SUN SIGNS and MOON SIGNS. (You can get the MOON SIGNS from astrology books. They have a table which shows the sign that the moon is at during the day you are born. It differs from year to year.)

Step 2: Compare both SUN SIGNS.

Step 3: Compare both MOON SIGNS.

Step 4: Cross over and compare SUN SIGN with MOON SIGN and the other way round.

Step 5: The minimum criteria is to have at least 2 matches in the 4 comparisons. (i.e. The signs must belong to the same element group or the next compatible group)

For example:The guy's SUN SIGN is Virgo,MOON SIGN is Cancer. The gal's SUN SIGN is Cancer, MOON SIGN is Libra. There is a common sign here. Plus Virgo and Cancer are also compatible. Although there is an AIR SIGN, Libra which is not so compatible with Earth and Water signs, it's still negligible.

This is the method I use when doing Western Astrology Love Compatibility.

Now for the 3rd method. This method is really complex. It's only for the professionals. I believe it can be mastered, just that it will take some time.

For this 3rd method,you need a very good ASTROLOGY BOOK which will teach you everything from ground up. Because you need to draw out the birth charts for each individual.

Drawing out the birth chart involves knowing when will each planet land in each of the different houses in the chart. By knowing which planet is in which house, you are able to tell what happens during each phase of this individual's life.

This is the most accurate method to analyse love compatibility. However it is very tedious and you need a lot of concentration. But if you are very interested in mastering astrology, I recommend that you learn and use this method.

Astrology and The Law of Attraction

Astrology is a passion of mine and I have studied it for a few years now. It took a while for me to put it all into perspective. At first glance, astrology can seem counter intuitive to the law of attraction-destiny versus free will. However, a deeper look reveals the opposite. They are perfectly complementary if understood.

Astrology is the study of energy. It could easily be called The Study of the Earth's Vibes. Each of us comes into this world with certain talents. I believe we chose these talents before we were born in order to achieve what we wanted. As everything, the place and time of your birth also contained a certain energy, and that energy is carried within you.And just like all energy, it is neither negative nor positive. Astrologers study this energy and try their best to interpret it. The way you use this energy, the way you choose to focus it is what matters. This is why people who share the same birthday (plus time and place) can have such unique and distinctly different lives. This phenomenon is often notable in twins.

Astrology doesn't determine one's life path or one's future. It does however provide a map of the energy you were born with.

What about Mercury Retrograde? Does it really have an affect on all of us?

Mercury Retrograde is the most common astrological term known among non astrologers. This is a brief period where the planet Mercury (planet that rules communication and technology) goes backwards. A retrograde period is often linked with miscommunication and computer crashes. However, this is all in the interpretation. This kind of energy also allows me to take a break from the computer and go take a walk!

What is difference between Vedic and Western astrology?

Different methods used in the interpretation of energies.

What is Horary astrology?

It is an interpretation of the energy carried by a certain moment in place and time. Horary astrology is mostly used to answer a specific question such as Is this a good time to get married?

What about numerology? tarot? runes?

Again, you can rename all these things-the study of energy! It is a way of measuring vibrations. My friend Lindsey and I had a tarot card reading a few weeks ago, and it was VERY accurate-for that moment. It just tells you what you are in the process of attracting and you can shift it in an instant.

The Power Of Astrology

Astrology is ?the word of the stars?. The ten major bodies in the solar system that appear to orbit the Earth are the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. By the movements of the stars and planets, we can read and predict the significance events for our lives.

Astrology has been used to predict the future, relationship compatibility, to help people to adapt to the unexpected and to make the best use of their opportunities. It has an extraordinarily accurate description of our personalities, needs, hopes, strengths and weaknesses. Most fascinating of all, it is claimed to be able to predict the future.

The Twelve Signs Of The Zodiac They are
1. Aries (Element: Fire, Quality: Cardinal, Ruling Planet: Mars)
2. Taurus (Element: Earth, Quality: Fixed, Ruling Planet: Venus)
3. Gemini (Element: Air, Quality: Mutable, Ruling Planet: Mercury)
4. Cancer (Element: Water, Quality: Cardinal, Ruling Planet: The Moon)
5. Leo (Element: Fire, Quality: Fixed, Ruling Planet: The Sun)
6. Virgo (Element: Earth, Quality: Mutable, Ruling Planet: Mercury)
7. Libra (Element: Air, Quality: Cardinal, Ruling Planet: Venus)
8. Scorpio (Element: Water, Quality: Fixed, Ruling Planet: Mars)
9. Sagittarius (Element: Fire, Quality: Mutable, Ruling Planet: Jupiter)
10. Capricorn (Element: Earth, Quality: Cardinal, Ruling Planet: Saturn)
11. Aquarius (Element: Air, Quality: Fixed, Ruling Planet: Saturn)
12. Pisces (Element: Water, Quality: Mutable, Ruling Planet: Jupiter)

Using Astrology in Relationship

Each sign has different characteristic and exhibit different relationship dynamics with one another. Some combinations may work better as friends than lovers, others as colleagues than as friends. On the other hand, some marriages thrive on agreement while others on argument. The process of comparing one?s horoscope to another is known as synastry. At its simplest level, synastry works by comparing Sun Sign. There are certain combinations of Sun signs that often produce close relationship and the most common of these are the combination of signs of the same element eg fire and fire, water and water, etc. By looking at two persons? Sun Sign eg couple?s Sun Sign, it often offers us a remarkably deep insight into the mysterious sources of attraction between two people.

The author's website features a useful software Astro Compatibility Reading. This program is useful for couples, friends, colleagues who would like to know how compatible they are with one another.

What Is Astrology?

The etymology of astrology is found in the Greek ?astrologia,? and is the amalgamation of two Greek words - astron, which means star; and logos, which means study. Astrology simply means studying the stars. Astrology has been known to the peoples of the ancient world for more than 5,000 years, and had been used to study how the celestial bodies affect the events, and the lives of people, on Earth. Tradition has it that astrology originated in ancient Babylon and ancient Mesopotamia before 2000 BC. From here, the system of studying the sun, moon, stars, and the planets, and their affect on Earth reached Greece around 2400 years ago, 400 years before the birth of Christ. Then, through Alexander?s conquests, the science spread to Egypt, the Middle East, and to India.

According to a different school of thought, astrology was already prevalent in India, and this form of astrology ? known as Vedic Astrology ? dates back to 6000 years.

The Different Astrological Traditions

There are many different traditions of astrology, some similar, and some based on different principles. Of the many different traditions, some are: Chinese astrology; Jyotish or Indian (Vedic) astrology; Babylonian astrology; Kabbalistic astrology; Tibetan astrology; Mayan astrology; Celtic astrology; and the Modern Western astrology.

These traditions are, in no way, exhaustive. Of these, the three major traditions used by modern astrologers are:

? The Chinese astrology
? Jyotish or Indian (Vedic) astrology, and
? The Modern Western astrology

Vedic astrology and the Modern Western astrology follow the horoscopic system, where there is a casting of a horoscope. A horoscope is an astrological chart. According to these two traditions, the horoscope represents the Sun, the Moon, the Stars, and the planets, and these celestial entities influence our lives in every aspect.

The Indian (Vedic) astrology is Sidereal - where the zodiac is aligned with 27 constellations, or fixed star groups. The Modern Western astrology, on the other hand, is tropical ? dividing the sky into twelve parts ? all equal. The Chinese system of astrology developed on entirely different principles, and similar traditions existed in the countries under the Chinese influence, such as the other countries of East Asia, including Japan, Vietnam, and Thailand.

How It Works

Astrology believes that our lives are influenced, our personalities are shaped, and the future course that our lives will take depends on how the celestial bodies, such as the sun, the moon, the stars and the planets, are placed when we are born.

We are quite used to the type of astrological readings we see in our newspapers every morning. This is the sun sign astrology, and is astrology in its simplest form. Only the date of your birth is required, and you get very limited results through this system. Serious practitioners of astrology do not use this system.

If you want your readings to be more accurate, the astrologer would require the exact time of your birth, to calculate where in the Zodiac each planet was at that time. He also needs to know in which signs of the constellation are the planets positioned. Drawing a precise horoscope is a complex procedure.

Astrology Forecast for May 2007 - General Tendencies for All Sun Signs

My goodness, the planets are going to be busy this month. We are going to be under some kind of major planetary influence almost every day. We will get a short reprieve towards the middle of the month, and then things will start up again, all the way through the Blue Moon on May 31.

The Month begins with the Scorpio Full Moon on May 2, and we may be extra sensitive around that time. Try not to let other's negative feelings get to you, and my best advice is stay close to your "happy friends." Mercury will be beginning a fight with Saturn and Neptune over the weekend of Cinco de Mayo, and Venus and Pluto will be arguing. But, Jupiter and Saturn will be at the peak of their harmonic angle. What this means, is Mercury, the god of communication and transportation, may bring some confusion and even criticism. We may get lost, or lose our sense of direction. We may find ourselves putting up with verbal abuse, or addicts, or both. And, some of us may get swindled or busted. If it sounds too good to be true, on this weekend, it is. Venus rules relationships and money, and Pluto can bring up deep issues. There may be power struggles or jealousy crop up in relationships. There is also a potential for theft, because Pluto rules the criminal. But, Jupiter and Saturn will keep business going well, and any kind of investments we make will probably pay off .

Venus will enter home loving Cancer on May 8, and we will have a couple of minor planetary influences motivating us to try something new, and to put some of our thoughts into action. But, there is also a strong probability that we will be dealing with financial losses, or our energy will be low. Also, Jupiter and Uranus will be coming to their peak, and that means we may go off onto some tangents that are completely unrealistic through May 10. You can read more about Jupiter Square Uranus in my Article, "Eccentric Behavior Dangerous Cranks, Managing Our Lives."

Mercury will enter his home sign of Gemini on May 11. This will give those of us with dominate Gemini in our charts a boost, and the rest of us may just be ready to talk. But, the weekend of May 12 and 13 brings more problems (just in time for Mothers' Day). The Sun will be arguing with Neptune, and that's going to bring out addictions. Our judgment will be poor, so no major life changing decisions this weekend. Also, Mars and Pluto will be in a major battle. Mars is our energy and our sex drive, and when Pluto is negatively aspected, the nuclear weapons may come out. (I mean that figuratively. Not forecasting any global wars.) There is a very strong potential for fights, and many will lose their tempers. With our addictions coming up, and with a tendency to lose our tempers, it is very likely there will be some bar brawls. Try to practice moderation with Mom, no matter how much she bitches.

After Mothers' Day, we will get a little reprieve. The planets will be fairly quiet for the next few days. The New Moon in Taurus will be on May 16, but all should remain calm until Saturday, May 19. Over the weekend, Mercury will be fighting with Jupiter and Uranus, and he will be winking at Saturn. We won't be thinking in a practical manner, and some people will be just plain sarcastic. But, if we can keep our heads level, there may be an opportunity to get ahead.

The Sun will enter Gemini on May 21, and the Moon enters Leo. We may be ready to play on this day, and competitive type games will go well. On May 22 and 23, we will be feeling the effects of Mercury singing with Neptune as Neptune turns retrograde. We may find ourselves feeling very creative, but if we are not careful all the creativity may get focused into a negative part of our lives. An example would be that we are wishing to express our love for someone, but we get drunk before we tell them. Neptune will be at retrograde station on May 24, and Venus and Uranus will be singing their own song. It is very likely we will be ready for something different, and with the Sun and Mercury in Gemini, we may just want two. Extra marital affairs are likely, but if we can focus the energy correctly, we may create something beautiful.

Mercury will be upset with Pluto as our Memorial Day Weekend begins on May 26. People could be rather outspoken or impulsive. There is also a strong tendency for quarrels. Mercury will enter domestic Cancer on the evening of Memorial Day, May 28, and we will be ready to come back to reality. We have a special Blue Moon on May 31, and we may be ready to let go of some of the addictions and emotional crap we have been carrying around all month. It will be an excellent day to look ahead.
