Understanding Vedic Jyotish


Jyotish or Vedic Astrology is an amazing science. Through Jyotish, the astrologer can tell you the entire details of your life. Sometimes it may sound unbelievable, but this is truth that has been found valid by millions of believers in astrology. An Astrologer may know more about the person than the person himself through the help of Vedic Astrology. You might be thinking how this is possible? It is made possible on the experiences of ancient astrologers who developed the correlation of the elements and the individuals.

However, the system, which grew in India, differs from the system practiced in the Western countries. Indian Jyotish (Vedic Astrology) uses fixed zodiac in place of movable zodiac of Western astrology. You can understand this by knowing the fact that the zodiac looks tilted on the earth of its axis. Because of this, the zodiac seems moving out of its position with the real star-related zodiac. Presently, this position appears a little bit more than twenty-three degrees, roughly one entire sign. In this way, a person whose rising sign can be Scorpio according to Western astrology might show Libra rising in Vedic astrology or Jyotish.

Though, Western astrology stresses on the Sun sign, Jyotish stresses more on the rising and the position of the Moon. As such, Jyotish does not understand and recognize the outer planets Uranus, Pluto, Neptune. But, definitely, it gives importance to the two lunar nodes, Rahu and Ketu. This is the point where the moon in its position (orbit) near the earth passes through the plane of the ecliptic (the great circle representing the annual path of the sun).

Though in space, this (as told above) they are imaginary points, but from Jyotish’s point of view, these are very important and so, Jyotish gives them the status of planets.

Nakshatras (constellations) are also very important in Vedic Astrology. There are twenty-seven constellations (configurations of stars as seen from the earth). The constellation, which the Moon occupies at the time of birth, is considered quite important in predicting the general trend of events in a person’s life.

Besides the mathematical part of Astronomy, Jyotish has a very-well developed science of predictive astrology. Seeing the past history, Vedic seers underlined principles that permit past, present and future events to be understood through the system of Vedic Astrology.

One of the primary tools in Vedic Jyotish is the dasha (planetary movements through the signs). The most popular Dasha these days is the Vimshottari Dasha. This dasha permits the astrologer to find not only what has passed before, but what is next about to happen in the future quite accurately.

Jyotish is so important that it is considered as the Eye of the Veda. This is respected by one and all in the Indian spiritual tradition. But the same thing, many Westerners do not understand. Apart from this, Jyotish is not just a part of the system; it is also the part of the Vedic knowledge.

Basically, Jyotish gives information from all walks of life. It tells you about the good thing as well as the bad thing both. Jyotish cautions you about the danger, at the same time, maximizes good thing that is coming. In addition to this, Jyotish also advises you alternative solutions in case you need.

Vedic astrologers (Jyotishis) will say that Jyotish uses, repeatable, logical and hence dependable principles. Many astrologers maintain that an astrologer’s intuition plays an important role in identifying what factors are important in a native’s chart. Still, the concept of intuition does not explain the power of Jyotish revealing the conditions of our life.

Naturally, whosoever has received an individual reading from a good Jyotish feels surprised how much astrologer knows them
