Avoid quarrels and confrontations. Vedic Astrology is the science of light, both the light of the celestial bodies and the internal light of the soul. It is a gift that was bestowed upon humanity by the ancient sages and has been passed on from generation to generation in an oral and written form. Vedic Astrology or Jyotish unfolds the knowledge of how the planets and the stars influence an individual human life as well as the life of the nations, and the globe. It sheds light on our lives.

Vedic Astrology uses extremely accurate astronomical calculations to determine the positions of the stars and the planets to predict the future of individuals as well as mundane affairs; therefore, Vedic Astrology is referred to as predictive astrology. Vedic Astrology has numerous practical applications.

The main one is predicting one's life events, as well as understanding how the heavenly bodies influence our lives and which particular planets are responsible for favorable and unfavorable occurrences in specific areas of life. A human being is a creation of the cosmos; therefore, all the facets of human existence, including the past, present, and future, are intimately connected to the influence of the planets and the stars. Through Vedic Astrology we can analyze and interpret the quality and intensity of an individual's karma within various aspects of life.

One of the most important areas of Vedic Astrology deals with remedial measures for improving and correcting adverse planetary influences, as well as strengthening and promoting the positive ones. Vedic Astrology provides us with tools and means to predict and time the events that are going to take place in one's life, but more so, it renders instructions on how to improve the quality of life in order to enjoy the totality of existence. Astronomical Basis of Vedic Astrology The Zodiac is a belt of heavens extending on both sides of the ecliptic.

It encircles the space through which the planets travel in their orbits.

Vedic Astrology employs sidereal zodiac, which is different from the tropical zodiac used in the Western Astrology. While the tropical Western Astrology uses the vernal equinox the Sun's position at the beginning of spring as the starting point for the measurements along the zodiac, the sidereal Vedic Astrology uses fixed stars to identify different segments along the zodiac. The starting points of the sidereal and tropical zodiacs coincide once every 25, years. After that the starting points separate from each other by an approximate 1degree of an arc per each 72 years.

The difference between the longitude of the starting points of the sidereal and tropical zodiacs at any given time is called Ayanamsha. Due to the existing controversy about the year in which the two starting points coincided last, there are several ayanamshas used by different schools of Vedic astrologers. Some of them are Lahiri, Krishnamurti, Raman, and Fagan ayanamshas. Lahiri is the most widely used Ayanamsha which is based on the last coincidence point taking place in the year A.

Steps to Reading your Vedic Astrology chart

Lahiri Ayanamsha for the year of your birth is degrees. If you want to convert your sidereal Vedic planetary positions into tropical Western , you can do so by adding this ayanamsha to the degrees of the planets in your Vedic chart. To arrive to the sidereal positions by converting the tropical ones, you will need to subtract the ayanamsha from the tropical positions. For example, Your Sun is placed in degrees of the constellation of Capricorn in your Vedic chart. When you add the ayanamsha for the year of your birth, which is degrees, you will derive the tropical Western Astrology horoscope position of your Sun, which happens to be placed in the sign of Aquarius.

How Vedic Astrology Predicts For predictive purposes Vedic Astrology looks at the positions of the planets in relation to the stars in the Zodiac at the time of one's birth. These positions reveal how the universe was functioning at that instance. In a way, planets are like 9 special measuring points from which the entire subtle state of natural law can be measured.

At the time of birth, when the body enters the world, this state of the universe gets projected into the structure of the life of an individual. Therefore, the conditions of these nine measuring points, the nine planets, define the entire life span of events and circumstances for an individual. Only five of them are planets, one is a star, one is a moon, and the remaining two are special mathematical points. The other two elements included into the group are Rahu and Ketu, known as the North and South Lunar nodes.

Rahu and Ketu do not have physical substance, they are two mathematical points that mark the point of intersection of the plane of the Moon's orbit around the Earth with the ecliptic plane. Lunar or solar eclipses occur when the Sun and the Moon are close to one of the nodes. The Sanskrit word for planet is Graha. Each planet represents certain facets of human life. Traditional Vedic astrology does not consider the influences of Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto. Planets have primary and secondary significations. The circle of the Zodiac is divided into 12 equal segments called constellations or signs.

Each sign occupies 30 degrees of the celestial space. Each of the signs has a unique set of attributes which affect any planet traveling through that sign. The signs are environments that affect the way a planet feels and behaves. The Sanskrit word for Sign is Rashi. Here are the 12 signs listed in their natural order: signifies signifies signifies signifies signifies signifies signifies the soul. Every sign has its particular planetary ruler. The Sun and the Moon rule over one sign each, while the rest of the planets hold rulership over two signs.

Traditionally, Rahu and Ketu are considered not to hold rulership over any signs, although, some astrologers consider Rahu and Ketu to co-rule the signs of Aquarius and Scorpio respectively. The sign rulerships are a permanent value. The Zodiac is divided in one more way. Relative to the position of the Earth, the zodiac is divided into 12 houses. Just as the proper motion of planets is reflected by their degree positions in rashis signs , the diurnal illusionary, relative motion of the planets as perceived from the Earth motion of the planets is shown by their placement in astrological houses.

The houses represent the various areas of life. The areas of life are affected by the planets and signs that occupy the corresponding bhavas houses. The twelve bhavas houses represent the totality of existence as experienced by a human being. So far, we have briefly covered the general principles of the three main components of Vedic Astrology: the Planets, the Signs, and the Houses.

The positions of the planets in the signs and houses are depicted in what is called the Horoscope. Evaluation and understanding of the interactive influences of these three main elements constitutes the interpretation of your horoscope.


Let us take a look at your actual horoscope kundali chart :. Right now you are looking at your vedic chart formatted in the North Indian chart style. As you see, there are 12 individual sections in the horoscope. These sections are the houses, and each house is fully occupied by one of the signs.

The signs are marked within the houses with numerals. The numbering system used for marking the signs reflects the natural order of the signs i. The house counting sequence follows a counterclockwise direction, and so does the sign sequence within the chart. The box at the center top of the chart is called the First house.

The sign occupying the first house is called the Ascendant. Your Ascendant is the sign which was rising at the eastern horizon at the time of your birth. The sign is indicated by its corresponding number. In your chart, the first house is marked with number 3, which indicates the sign of Gemini. Therefore, your Ascendant is Gemini. The box on the left of the first house is called the second house.

The number 4 in that house represents the sign of Cancer. Next to it is the third house, then the fourth, and so on up to the twelfth house. The top center box is always the first house and the bottom center one is always the seventh. When using the North Indian style chart you should also remember that the numbers within the houses represent the sign numbers, not the numbers of the houses. For your convenience, here is a complete overview: Houses Number in chart 1st house 3 2st house 4 3rd house 5 4th house 6 5th house 7 6th house 8 7th house 9 8th house 10 9th house 11 10th house 12 11th house 1 12th house 2 Sign Gemini Cancer Leo Virgo Libra Scorpio Sagittarius Capricorn Aquarius Pisces Aries Taurus.

Each of the planets is placed in one of the houses. The planets are marked in the chart with their abbreviated names. Now we see from the picture of your chart, which houses your planets occupy. The Sun, indicated by the letters Su, is in house 8. The Moon Mo is in house 1. Mars Ma is in house Mercury Me is in house 9.

Jupiter Ju is in house 1. Venus Ve is in house 7. Saturn Sa is in house 5. Rahu Ra is in house 7. Ketu Ke is in house 1. Once again, you should not confuse the house numbers with the numbers that you see in your chart. The numbers in the houses represent the signs that occupy those houses. The houses must be counted in a counter clockwise direction from the 1st house, which is the top center house. The houses should be counted inclusively of. For example the 3rd house is located three house away from the first one, not two, and 11th house is 5 houses away from the 7th, not four.

Even though within this tutorial we will always reference your chart in the North Indian format, you should learn the difference between North and South Indian chart styles. Let's take a look at your natal chart drawn in the South Indian format. Whereas the North Indian chart has a fixed house order, the South Indian format has a fixed sign order. The sign of Aries always falls on the second left box on the top of the chart. The house box that the Ascendant sign occupies becomes the First house with the remaining houses following in a clockwise direction.

Commonly, the First house is marked with a diagonal line or with As mark. Some astrologers choose to mark the houses with numbers, as opposed to the North Indian style, in which the numbers represent the signs. However, in this illustration of your chart in South Indian format the numbers within the houses represent the signs, 1 for Aries, 2 for Taurus, 3 for Gemini, etc. I could write a very long article to do this book justice, but I am not going to.

I want you to read the book, which I strongly recommend, and of course to make up your own minds as to its philosophical as well as practical merits. Prasna Marga is a very big and extremely detailed book. I have to say that it not only deals with horary but with natal as well. After all, a lot of the rules and aphorisms in horary can be, and should be, applied in the natal branch. I had read about Jyotish horary from Hart de Fouw and how comprehensive it can be but I have to say I did not expect it to be that thorough.

Even if you have read the largest Western horary book, namely the Nine Judges translated by Ben Dykes, plus Bonatti, Lilly, etc, in reading Prasna Marga you will be amazed at the amount of detail that is given. I read all the horary parts for a few hours without taking a single break. By impressed, I mean not so much the astrological rules pertaining to the chart, that is, the intra-chart rules, the hundreds of aphorisms on pretty much any topic one can think of, because they are preserved in the Western horary books.

Some of them are similar to those on thought interpretation given by Herman of Carinthia in the Search of the Heart translated by Ben Dykes. What I mean is the totality of the Indian approach. It considers the moment of asking the question to be unique. As such, not only the astrological chart but the world outside, as well as inside, gives all kinds of information on what is asked about.

Here are some of the factors that are considered:. As much as I am impressed, I have to mention what I consider to be the negative side not just of Prasna Marga but of Indian Astrology in general. And I am not even getting into the worshiping part which is oriented towards the lower astral plane and its repercussions. My point in criticizing Prasna Marga is that one is given hundreds, if not thousands, of rules for probably any conceivable topic, and from a number of angles, yet what about the practitioner themselves? What about their own contribution?

I am not talking about reinventing the wheel. I am talking about the uniqueness that every human being brings into their practice.

Again, there are dozens if not more rules telling the practitioner not to judge the chart because the outcome will be negative. I am not just talking about intra-chart rules. I am talking about prior to meeting the client and drawing the chart itself. Why this strong need to control the environment?

What will happen if the answer is indeed negative? After all, given how many factors can be taken into account, chances are it will be unfavourable. So what? Hearing bad news is not the end of the world. What about learning from the negative outcome? How about accepting fate and being open to what you are presented with next?
