ASTROLOGY-VEDIC-STUDIES-7

Vedic astrology and its technique.

For most western astrologers who have spent years studying the technique of the tropical system with its aspects and other nuances, making the jump to the use of Vedic or sidereal horoscopes can seem a daunting task.

Apart from the myriad of different names and terminology, chart shapes and aspects, many an astrologer I have spoken with are taken aback when they read the descriptions of planets in specific signs, accusing the ancient Vedic writers of being extremely fatalistic and negative in their interpretations.

Western tropical astrologers prefer to take a more psychological and humanistic approach to the interpretation of the chart, claiming that Vedic astrology leaves very little room for self-determination, these statements come obviously from a lack of in-depth study across a wide range of systems within Vedic astrology and its gamut of writers who have their own perspective.

Probably the most illustrious of the Vedic astrological sages is Parashara, who has enunciated the elaborate technique with all its planetary, Zodiacal and subtle interpretations for analyzing not only character but also the future and destiny of individuals.

The system of Vedic astrology is therefore, a complex exercise, but best explained through the use of examples to show just how, precisely, accurate, the interpretations can be. Yes, there is a fatalistic element to the way a Vedic horoscope is studied, but this may have something to do with the origins being in the subcontinent of India where over thousands of years the people, as a result of great poverty, have for the most part not felt that empowered to change their circumstances. That is now changing. With the advent of the great technological revolution in India and there are many astrologers now who agree that there are methods for helping one overcome the constraints of the horoscope, of what one is born with as a karmic legacy.

No less impressive in the Vedic astrological system, apart from the sheer magnitude of information and the insights that can be gleaned from a chart, is the novel use of remedial measures to help one overcome the handicaps and other shortcomings that one is born with as reflected in planets which are weak or harmful to the individual.

Following are examples to show you some unique techniques for studying horoscopes. For both professional and lay person alike this may throw some light on the procedures that are used to ascertain not only the meaning of the planets but how and when, during their cycles, they are likely to play out in the life of an individual.
