know about Veda astrology
Astrology studies the relationships between earthly bodies and celestial objects and is built on the deep relationship that stars and constellations have with the fate of human beings. The word astrology itself is derived from Latin and Greek roots and can be roughly translated to ‘the study of stars’ or ‘star-divination’. Astrology was mainly developed in the Indian civilization, the Chinese civilization and the ancient Maya civilizations, which are credited with developing arts, science, and philosophy, which still continue to have a wide-reaching impact in the modern world. Forms of Astrology were also practiced in Mesopotamian civilization, in ancient Egypt and Rome.
Channeling the power of astrology can lead one to live a life with meaning and purpose, while not being dissuaded from the path of their destiny by disagreeable forces or destructive distractions. Through the centuries, astrology has been the bastion of thinkers, learners and holy men, who have made their full effort to utilize their knowledge of the celestial movements and positions of heavenly objects to help laymen.
The basic constituents of astrology are sun signs or zodiac signs, planets, houses and different elements and qualities of individuals. There are a total of twelve houses, according to the time of birth of an individual and each sun sign governs a house. The moment of birth of a person coincides with specific positions of different planets within the houses and these celestial positioning of different heavenly planets, specific to the different individual, forms the birth chart of an individual. This is interpreted through astrology, in order to arrive at an individual’s destiny, mutable and fixed qualities, and also map figurative obstacles over the course of a lifetime. Astrology doesn’t just interpret and explain one’s position, it also combines the divine power of prediction with the gift of being prescriptive, enabling everyone to objectively understand their character, their traits, personal weaknesses, and qualities while providing a roadmap through which to elevate and express one’s life and divine purpose on this earth.
