Sri Ganeshaya Namah - Vedic Astrology

Vedic Astrology
Vedic astrology, also known as Jyotish, is distinguished for its spiritual depth and accuracy in predicting future events and the diagnosis and prevention of disease. Vedic astrology uses zodiac charts as a tool for predicting trends, changes, and astrological compatibility with amazing precision and accuracy.

Western medicine is based upon attempting to either cure or suppress a patient's symptoms. Only in the last few years have western researchers started looking into the root cause of diseases and still have a long way to go.

As late as a few hundred years ago people were in better health than they are today. Yoga, Ayurveda, acupressure, acupuncture, homeopathy and other holistic ways kept people in optimum health. Astrology was utilized by these holistic practitioners for going into the root cause of illness, treating diseases at the source. In the East doctors will refer their patients to alternative therapies like homeopathy, Ayurveda, and magnet therapy for diseases they know have no cure in the Western system of medicine.

In the practice of both Ayurveda and the Chinese system of medicine, it is very common for the doctor to ask the date and time of birth of their patients in order to know the basic constitution of the person. Medical astrology is a widely practiced science in India. The doctors know and understand within their hearts that karma plays a very important role in the state of one's health. In India major operations are performed after consulting with an astrologer about a favorable date and time for the procedure. Necessary precautions are taken in the form of prayers, chantings, yagyas and serving the poor to ward off negative planetary influence/Vibrations.

Sage Parashara - Father of Vedic Astrology
India definitely has an illustrious past which can be seen by the living traditions that still exist in Vedic astrology, ayurvedic medicine, vastu (architecture), Sanskrit, music, dance, yoga, systems of worship etc.
There are two main systems of Vedic astrology practiced today: Parashari and Jaimini which were developed by the sages Parashara and Jaimini respectively. The sage Parashara is said to be the “father of Vedic astrology” who recorded the main principles of vedic astrology or “jyotish”, the science of light, into the classic Sanskrit text known as the Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra. This forms the basis for the entire Parashari system, which is by far the most widely used in India and the world today.
Ayurvedic Vedic Astrology
All great ancient civilizations centered their cultures on profound systems of astrology, connecting conditions and events on the Earth with cosmic influences deriving from the stars. Whether it is India or China, Egypt or Babylonia, or the Mayas and Incans of America, we find in each case an astrological foundation for their spiritual cultures. Even the ancient cultures of Europe like the Greeks, Romans, Celts and Germans, had detailed systems of astrology, as have all communities that recognize the sacred nature of the universe.
Similarly, all systems of traditional medicine East and West possess corresponding forms of astrology, which are essential to both their theory and their practice. Notably, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has the I Ching and Chinese astrology, while the Ayurvedic medicine of India has Vedic astrology. Traditional European medicine going back to the Greeks included western astrological traditions, which were part of pagan traditions in general.
Connecting healing and astrology - or the practice of medical astrology - is one of the deepest and most lasting investigations of our species. It is as old as all such great ancient cultures and their astrologically based rituals to keep human life in harmony with the cosmos. We have long looked to the stars and the heavens for guidance, grace and healing energy, for understanding human existence in a deeper perspective in which we can touch the eternal and the infinite.
Today we are entering into a new planetary age, in which ancient, native and traditional systems of healing and spirituality are once more being honored. In this context an examination of the astrology of healing is relevant, if not crucial for reclaiming that older and perhaps wiser heritage of our species.
Vedic Astrology and Ayurvedic Medicine
Vedic astrology is India's traditional system of reading the stars, the planets and the entire movement of time. It was originally called Vedanga Jyotish, meaning the study of light (Jyoti) which a limb of the Veda (Vedanga). It was also called Jyotirveda, the Veda or science of light. Ayurveda, which means the science of life, is the corresponding Vedic system of natural healing for both body and mind. Both are living branches of an ancient sacred science that arose in an older era in which humanity had a greater intuitive connection with the sacred universe.
Unlike corresponding western traditions, their continuity, though shaken by hostile forces, has remained unbroken. These systems are undergoing a renaissance today as we once more learn to look within.
Vedic astrology is an extraordinary predictive and counseling tool. There are many wonderful stories of how Vedic astrologers can pinpoint specific events in a person’s life with uncanny accuracy. Yet Vedic astrologers are not only good at prediction, they can relate deep wisdom about a person’s life purpose, karma and spiritual path. Some Vedic astrologers are thought to be psychics for this reason, though they may be only describing what the Vedic birth-chart can reveal to a trained astrological insight.
Similarly, Ayurveda is a precise and comprehensive tool for healing physical and psychological well-being, promoting optimal health, energy and vitality. There are many instances of Ayurvedic doctors introducing changes in a person's life, from simple dietary or life-style modifications, to special herbs or internal cleansings that can literally rejuvenate us, curing long standing and intractable health problems of various types. Because of such occurrences, some Ayurvedic doctors are regarded as magical healers, though they may only be employing practices based upon understanding the laws of nature and the movement of the life-force, such as Ayurveda has taught them.
These two Vedic systems and their magic come together in the Vedic astrology of healing or Ayurvedic astrology - Ayurvedic astrology shows us how to optimize both factors of our health and our destiny, our vitality and our karma, so that we can realize our highest potential in life, with our earthly life following the model of heavenly forces and their consciousness-promoting outcomes. Ayurvedic astrology shows how we can heal ourselves through the stars, bringing the energies of the cosmos into our lives so that we can once more touch the universal light.
Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology
Ayurveda is called the mother of all healing because it embraces all forms of healing including diet, herbs, bodywork, surgery, psychology and yoga. It accepts anything internally or externally that promotes health, well-being and happiness. Ayurveda explores the qualities and effects not only of foods, medicines and behavior but also of climates, the weather and the stars (astrology). Ayurveda provides an integral mind-body system of both diagnosis and treatment. First it shows us our individual constitution according to the three Doshas or biological humors of Vata (air), Pitta (fire) and Kapha (water), as well ashow this constitution is affected by everything from genetics to environment and emotions. Then it outlines various treatment measures to enable us to achieve optimal health and vitality. These range from simple dietary measures to complex herbs and special purification procedures. Ayurveda aims not only at the cure and prevention of disease but also at rejuvenation and longevity. Beyond ordinary health care measures it has special methods to allow us to achieve a higher level of vitality and awareness a spiritual Ayurveda that is part of the practice of Yoga. Possessing a similar scope to Ayurveda, Vedic astrology contains all aspects of astrology, including the reading of birth charts (natal astrology), mundane astrology (the effects of astrological on society), astrological timing and forecasting (Muhurta), and answering questions (Prashna). In addition to these usual astrological considerations, Vedic astrology encompasses all forms of divination, including palmistry and numerology, of which several Vedic forms exist. It also includes astronomy and meteorology, which reflect karmic as well as physical forces. As a form of natal astrology or the reading of birth charts, the Vedic system helps us understand our personal lives in all areas, including health, wealth, relationship, career and spirituality. Like Ayurveda, it has a broad range of treatment measures including the use of colors, gems, mantras and the worship deities to aid in our greater well-being and life enfoldment. These are called Jyotish-Chikitsa, the therapies of light or astrology.
Ayurvedic Astrology
Yet, though they have their specializations in many areas, both Vedic astrology and Ayurveda have a significant overlap as well. Vedic astrology contains a medical system based upon Ayurveda, while Ayurveda contains a system for the timing of disease and its treatment based upon Vedic astrology. We can designate this combined usage of Ayurveda and Vedic astrology more simply as Ayurvedic Astrology. Ayurvedic astrology is the medical branch of Vedic astrology, adding to it the Ayurvedic view of health and healing. It uses the language of Ayurveda to understand the effects of the planets on the body and mind relative to health, disease and longevity. Ayurvedic astrology also uses Vedic astrology as an aid to Ayurvedic analysis, diagnosis and treatment, showing how planetary factors cause disease and balancing them can be an important aid in any cure. Ayurvedic astrology combines these two great disciplines, using Vedic astrology to plot the influences of time and karma and Ayurveda to show how these relate on to our state of Prana or vital energy. Combining these two great disciplines together, there is nothing that we cannot treat or cannot understand. Vedic astrology considers that the determination of physical and mental health is the foundation of all astrological analysis. Whatever other indications may occur in a chart; whether for career, wealth, relationship or spirituality, these cannot bear fruit if a person has significant physical or mental impairments. Traditionally, the ascertainment of longevity was the first factor to be examined by a good astrologer. This was not a matter of simply determining how long a person was likely to live, but part of a general determination of the vitality of a person; their energy to use the opportunities afforded them by the chart. In this regard, medical or Ayurvedic astrology is usually the first step of all astrological examination.
However, Ayurvedic astrology is not simply a physically-based medical astrology. It reflects the psychological and spiritual dimensions of Ayurveda as well. It is concerned with our well-being on all levels, which depends upon our connection to the Soul, the real person or Atman within. In this regard, Ayurvedic astrology is concerned with healing body, mind and spirit, using the tools of the entire universe, the foremost of which is the light of the stars and planets. It expands the field of Ayurveda to its broadest possible range.
