About Astrology

wheelDerived from the two Greek words... Astra meaning a star and logos meaning logic or reason, the word astrology has come to mean many things to many different people. To the practitioner is the study of the intimate relationship between celestial movements and terrestrial life. To the lay person interested in the topic it is away to somehow cast aside one's sense of responsibility for what happens in one's life and endow the planets and stars above with that task. And of course to the nonbeliever there just isn't anything you can say that will convince them that some distance star in another galaxy can actually have any impact upon human beings here on planet Earth.

Inherent in the laws of physical and celestial nature is a connection to the laws of life and that includes what happens to us, being part of the greater environment and universe. The doctrine of reincarnation and the physics ruled it for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction is the governing Law and ideology of astrology. Karma is for the most part inextricably linked to the practice of astrology particularly in the East in systems suc

12 Signs of the Zodiac


 

What is Astrology

The roots of astrology go back to the dawn of man himself but even as far as 3000 years ago the great Hindu sage Parasara expounded the principles of sidereal astrology also known as Vedic astrology. His monumental work Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra is a classic work and basic reading for any astrologer who wishes to pursue this branch of study. Around the same time in Mesopotamia the Chaldeans built some of the earliest "observatories" called Ziggurats which were like watchtowers used for stargazing. Some of these were up to 300 feet in height. And it was the Chaldeans who sliced up the celestial sphere into the 12 star signs as we have come to know them.

Vedic Astrology

In Sanskrit, the word Jyotish is a combination of the words Jyoti, meaning light and ishta, meaning deity. It is therefore loosely interpreted as the study of the Sovereignty of "Light". The Power or God's Energy and Will is reflected in the configurations of the heavenly bodies. Just as storm clouds symbolize impending rain, so too are the patterns of planets and stars a glimpse of things ordained for humanity, both individually and collectively.

Sidereal and Tropical Astrology - East and West

The spiritual texts of ancient India, the Tantras and Vedas, reveal the most sophisticated esoteric and secular information. Such recent discoveries as the sub atomic nature of matter, the speed of light and other highly advanced concepts in mathematics and planetary mechanics were all dealt with thousands of years ago by intuitive Vedic seers. These progressive insights are truly astounding and humbling. Jyotish is a Vedanga or one of those Vedic "limbs". It was also thoroughly advanced in its development alongside other Vedic Sciences.

What is a Horoscope

The word "horoscope" means "the hourly pointer" and referred originally to the degree of the sign rising on the Eastern horizon at birth. It now means more than this: A horoscope is a map of the heavens erected to determine the destiny of a person born at a specific time and place on the Earth. This is not to be compared with the "solar horoscope," which is not a map of the heavens, but merely a statement of the sign of which the Sun only, is centrally placed, and their reading of such a "solar horoscope" is based on this one factor alone. (A horoscope is sometimes called a Nativity, and the person whose chart it is, is termed the Native).

Uses of Astrology

Astrology has traditionally been viewed as a series of celestial forces compelling us to behave in ways over which we have very little or no control. This old-fashioned view of astrology has relegated you and I to the cosmic stage as if we were puppets at the disposal of the planetary puppeteers having been destined to our fate and fortune, for either good or bad. This may or may not be true but what are we supposed to do...lay down and just cop it sweet? Out with the old and in with the new!
