Astrology means, literally, "the word of the stars". Early men looked to the stars for their omens. Astrology is a long-established method of exploring ourselves, our relationships and our place within the world. It works by taking a look at the significant environmental influences operating in a particular place at a given time â€“ as expressed through the horoscope in the symbolic relationships of the heavenly bodies. Astrology, the science of the stars, can give us insight into all manner of situations, from the personal to the political and from the most intimate to the most mundane.
An ancient system that reveals your past, present and future, Vedic astrology has flourished in India for several thousand years. Also known as "Science of Light" this Hindu astrology is renowned for its spiritual depth and accuracy in predicting life events. Vedic astrology is a scientific study and application of the language of the heavenly bodies, as it reflects an astrologer's perception of the placement of the planets in the constellations. These heavenly bodies are determined on the basis of astronomy and mathematics and are mapped in the form of a horoscope. Their specific position in the horoscope indicates specific happenings in the case of individuals. Horoscope is the construction of the basic placement of planets at time of birth in a pre-decided format called the birth chart.
The main factors affecting the horoscope of any individual are date of birth, place of birth and exact time of birth. According to Hindu astrology all heavenly bodies, whether itâ€™s the sun, the moon, the planets or stars, influence the terrestrial phenomena, or indicate such phenomena by their various configurations. The variations in their constitution determine the variations in the events on the earth as the correlation between the two is very strong.
Indian astrology is the study of the subtle energies, which make up our world. While evaluating a horoscope under Indian astrology, nothing more is looked beyond the blending of energies which can combine in an infinite variety of ways. As energetic beings, each one of us is comprised of a combination of energies, which makes up the sum total of our being. Each of us is created by a particular combination of planetary gravitational pulls exerted in different degrees, from different angles, and in different quantities. The multitude of possible combinations account for the variety of personalities, mentalities, physiques, as well as emotional and intellectual constitutions.
Indian astrology is popularly known as Jyotish or Vedic Astrology. A major branch of astrology practiced in India is based on a sidereal zodiac, rather than a tropical one. It uses the twelve constellations from Babylonian, but also has an additional "lunar" zodiac based on 27 lunar constellations or Nakshatras. These constellations are based on the approximate number of days that the Moon takes to complete a cycle relative to the stars. The Vimshottari dasa system is a predictive used in the Indian astrology and begins with the Moon's position through the lunar signs. The Moon in these lunar signs is also used in Muhurta, the Indian method of choosing the auspicious time to perform any job.
Why Indian Astrology, How can one not accept and praise the scientific world of Indian astrology? India has given us so many great astrologers, who were also eminent mathematicians, philosophers & physicians. The study of time is best done through Vedic astrology rather than with atomic clocks, as Vedic astrology exist since the time carbon, uranium or potassium dating was not invented.
Indian astrology is the oldest system of astrology in the world and differs considerably from the western system. Indian astrology uses the actual constellations of stars as seen in the sky. Using this system gives a completely different chart as compared to the one used by western astrologers, as the Indian astrology is based on the date, place and time of birth. Indian astrology also differs considerably from the Chinese horoscope which is based on the year of birth and believes that the year of birth indicates a certain phase or aspect of sixty year circle of time. Therefore you may find yourself born in the year of dog, horse or rat or even a dragon. Hence people who are born in a particular animal year share certain common traits just like people born in common zodiac do. Indian astrology is highly authentic and its predictions are believed to be the most accurate. Being based on the actual constellations of stars, this is the most widely used system of astrology across the world.
Death & Astrology
Here are some myths about death and astrology. And please don't go around using them as death indicators because they really won't work and are just doing the rounds to fool you!!!
People die on a transit. Many think that their 'death' was arriving shortly in the form of a heavy transit from Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto. No one can die on transit. It has to be backed up in the progressions, firstly. And there may be 'other' indicator present, such as an eclipse, plus a transit. These two or three pieces to the recipe for Death must be in place before something serious and major happens. Nothing major happens on a transit. Everything major occurs with progressions. Saturn is a death indicator. And no, Saturn isn't the only death planet indicator. It is one of many, as you will see. Any and all the planets, including the Uranian ones, can be involved in a death. Transits in the 8th house are responsible for deaths. Just because you have a transit, progression or eclipse in your 8th house (known as the house of sex, taxes and death), does not mean you're goanna check out either. Any house in the natal chart, any of the twelve, can be implicated and involved in your death.
Hard aspects can lead to death. No it isn't just hard aspects such as a conjunction, square, in conjunct or opposition that can put you into another dimension. So can soft aspects such as a sextile and trine, too. And there isn't one aspect that is a 'death aspect', either. Eclipses really kill people. Eclipses are not going to kill you. In and of themselves, they never will. In order to die, you must have progressions set up. An eclipse might be a trigger for this to occur, but that is all.
Lately, Chiron is getting a myth started on this asteroid that it's Death's Door. No, it isn't. A Chiron transit can certainly bring transformation--but it doesn't mean dying physically. The Moon's Nodes are the major indicators of dying. Not really. They may or may not be implicated in a death. They are found to be 'active' in potential physical death only about 30% of the time--and that's not a very high statistic to count on.
Manglik is a common word today. But who is Manglik, astrologically or what is Manglik Dosha is not known to common man. However nearly all believe this myth. During matching of Horoscopes of a boy and a girl before marriage people consult Pundits, which results into rejection of most agreeable match of boy and girl and mental pain to love birds.
* The myths related to the Manglik Dosha are: If one of the horoscopes of boy or girl has Manglik Dosha, the other one will die after marriage.
* If in the above case death will not take place, there will be a lot of problems faced in the lifetime.
* If girl is a Manglik and boy is not a Manglik girl is inauspicious even to her in-laws. Even one of the in-law may also die
Gand Mool Nakshatra
Nakshatra ruled by Mercury and Ketu Ashlesh, Mool, Revati, Jyesth and Ashwani are called Gand Mool nakshatras. If the natal Moon in the horoscope of a child is in one of these Nakshatras, the child is said to be born in Gand Mool Nakshatras. According to astrologer, child born in these nakshatras is inauspicious and faces various obstacles and problems in life, therefore on the 27th day, pooja should be performed. Some are also of the view that newly born child is inauspicious to the near relatives like maternal uncle, father, mother etc. Some astrologers have difference in views according to them â€“ Mool, Jyesth and Ashlesha are more inauspicious.Jyotish Tatwaâ€™ states that starting 5 hours of Ashwini, magha and Moola and ending 5 hours of Moola, Jyeshth and Ashlesha are called â€œGand Mool Nakshatrasâ.
Some have the views that if the child is born in such Nakshatras, it signifies death of cattle, bad by heart, bad for maternal uncle, bad for elder brother, bad for spouse, death of father and death of mother etc. Why will these ill effects come into picture is not clear. These ill effects are not mentioned in classical texts and not even astrologers know about it. Six out of twenty seven nakshatras are Gand Mool Nakshatras. This implies 20% of the population of the world is inauspicious. Does this mean other 80% population is auspicious. Our Nakshatra remains for nearly 24 hours. Can it be believed that inauspicious children will be born in these 24 hours.
Now let us understand what are the rules of the results of planets in astrology. If a planet is benefic good results are going to pass and its dasha will give good results. Therefore if in a horoscope or for a native, Mercury or Ketu are benefices and he/she is born in that Nakshatra, these planets and their dasha will give good results. It means we can not generalize the statement that if a child born in Gand Mool Nakshatra always give bad results will come to pass. This means if planets are malefic bad results will come to pass. The Nakshatra of any other planet can also be bad whereas that of Mercury and Ketu good.
An infant born in Nakshatra of a Natural benefic say Jupiter may die whereas millions of children born in Gand Mool Nakshatra lead happy life from childhood. Some of the people who born in the Gand Mool nakshatras and rose to great heights in their lives are Jawahar Lal Nehru, Mahatma Gandhi, Devanand etc.
Way for Gun Milan
Eight factors â€˜Kutaâ€™ are to be considered in order to judge the stability for a proposed marital alliance. In Gun Milan, the Nakshatra is considered of both boy and girl. Surprisingly, the entire subject of Gun Milan hinges on the position of Moon in the horoscope and not on birth Horoscope.Our Nakshatra remains for 24 hours. Do all people born in these 24 hours have similar characteristics whereas the fact is twins are different. Marriage is one of the most important event of the life. Horoscope matching desires to consider all important events of lives of both boy and girl.
* Longevity * Education * Mental Faculty * Child Birth * Separative Tendencies * Health
From research, it is seen that after having above 24 points in horoscope matching, a divorce, bickering, tensions, confusions and arguments occurs in marital life of couples while on other side, many couples who have less than 18 points in horoscope matching are living happily without any sort of problem in marital life. For matching of horoscope the matching points written above should be considered and â€˜Gun Milanâ€™ does not have right approach over these points, therefore the method of Gun Milan is not appropriate method of Horoscope Matching during the marriage of boy and girl. KalSarpa Yoga This Yog is said to be formed when all the planets are situated between Longitude and Latitude of Rahu and Ketu. As the name symbolize, the combination is considered very bad. Precisely, what bad events are going to pass is not clear. Kal Sarpa Yog does not find any place in classical texts. In a democratic country like India, Prime Ministers like Jawahar Lal Nehru and Indira Gandhi who enjoyed their position and earned a lot of fame and status, they also had this Yog in their horoscope. If a person having this Yog can become most powerful person of country, how can this Yog be considered bad. Conclusion: Results of the Planets are experienced in the period of Planets and not according to the combination of Planets like this therefore not much importance should be given to this so called KalSarpa Yog.
