Astrologers use a variety of techniques to make astrological predictions and offer a “road map” of an individual’s life. These techniques are a mix of mathematics and philosophy.
Techniques used for prediction have been developed and refined over time, starting in ancient Vedic times and continuing to be updated by various sages and astrologers throughout history. Even today, astrologers continue to learn and update their knowledge to provide the most accurate and helpful guidance.
Vedic astrology takes into account the precession of the equinoxes, which is the phenomenon of the earth’s axis slowly shifting over time. This means that the sidereal zodiac, which is used in Vedic astrology, takes into account the actual positions of the celestial bodies in the sky.
Ancient astrologers carefully observed the celestial movements in the sky and start relating to the events on Earth and humans. This is how the study started in the early days.
For a highly experienced Vedic astrologer, Kundli or a Birth chart is like a blueprint image of an individual. It is something like a mirror image. This may not make sense to those unfamiliar with astrology.
In this material world, Sun is the primary source of everything on Earth. If we consider the source of what we consume, plants get Sunlight to start the process of contributing to our food chain.
The sun is also the source of all other planets in our galaxy. All planets formed out of gas and dust left over from the Sun’s formation and they reflect the light of the Sun.
If there is no Sun, there is nothing. Does Sunlight affect our cognitive function?
Sun does affect human cognitive behavior, there are many research papers published on this topic – here is one. You can also observe your thoughts in different atmospheric conditions and experience the difference.
We can also observe our minds during Full moon and no Moon days. The influences of the Moon and Sun are not limited to their luminosity; their gravitational force may affect our minds as well.
It is easy to relate the Sun and Moon’s effects on our thoughts because we can experience them externally. They are also the two large heavenly bodies that are closer to us.
The effects of other planets in our solar system are subtle, we need to pay special attention to experience. Astrology is one of the tools we can use to understand this.
So, in one sense, Astrology or horoscope is the “Study of Human’s response to a planet’s activity”. (Both, Visible and Invisible waves).
Is astrology accurate?
Yes, the mathematical calculations of planets and their motion are accurate. In recent days, the calculation of planetary position and movement became easier due to computers. Scientifically, there is no doubt about all the mathematics used in Vedic Astrology.
However, there is no scientific proof about whether Predictive Astrology or Astrology predictions work or not. In the case of Astrological predictions, your personal experience becomes proof if you ask the right questions to an astrologer. Belief in astrology is a matter of personal interpretation and perspective.
You can talk to an astrologer by providing the correct birth details; good astrologers can accurately talk about your likes, dislikes, and almost everything about you. They can even talk about your appearance, your family members, your spouse, etc. If an unknown person sitting hundreds of miles away can tell a lot about your past and future, you should doubt yourself more.
No scientific proof doesn’t mean it does not work. Sun used to shine bright even before humans were here on the planet. There are many unexplored areas that modern scientists are yet to explore. Many things that we think to be spiritual will turn out to be material when they do.
Vedic astrology is based on knowledge and mysteries of the universe revealed by Vedic sages. Vedic sages or rishis like Parashara, Bhrigu, Jaimini, and many more created thousands of birth charts to study human response to planetary stimuli. The process is something like modern-day “Data analysis” or “Data Science” which Vedic sages did manually with the use of mathematics.
Vedic astrology is a data-backed analysis of the human mind based on planetary movements. It is something like a field of Psychology in a modern context.
Astrology mostly deals with material things and helps you understand the nature of “Matter”. It can help one understand the material bondages or karmic bondages and act accordingly. Knowledge of Rasa Shastra (Vedic Chemistry), Ayurveda, Yoga, and Tantra is used for astrological remedies.
The radiation from the planets can be absorbed, reflected, or refracted using gemstones as astrological remedies. Gemstone as a remedy is part of Rasa Shasta. Such remedies can further delay or minimize the effect of Karma. But, this can only be done by a highly intuitive Jyotish or Vedic Astrologer.
For example, if someone is about to get fired from an office after a few weeks – Astrological remedies can either make them mentally strong to face the event or delay the event, but planets cannot reverse or wipe out such important events that are going to happen. Remedies can only minimize the effects. This is the play of Karma, it sounds tricky.
Many materials can be used as remedies, Gemstones, Statues, Rudraksha Beads, etc. Mantra and Meditation methods are also recommended as planetary remedies. Mantra and Meditation methods are as effective as Gemstones and other physical materials. These are more effective and highly recommended for a spiritual-minded person.
How do remedies work?
In the Material world, it is the Mind that we need to understand more than Astrology. Many astrologers may disagree with this but, astrology works for the Mind only. It only has an indirect effect on our body or matter.
The Mind is easily influenced by the external world, it is not under control if you are using astrology. Astrological remedies act as a shield and filter for planetary radiations that can make the mind less occupied by negativity. To understand what type of shield or filter is needed, an astrologer needs to properly analyze the birth charts or Kundli.
Vedic astrology is based on Vedic philosophy which says the mind experiences and shapes the physical world. So, whatever material action you perform, is the reflection of what you think in your mind. This is why prayers and mantras work effectively. Vedic astrologers often recommend chanting mantras and prayers like Hanuman Chalisa or Om Namah Shivaya regularly to purify your mind.
Different types of Rudraksha, Gemstones, and other types of physically available remedies are very useful aids for prayers, mantras, and Meditation. If you can meditate, it is the ultimate remedy for any planetary effects. Meditation will silence the mind and purify it so that less Karmic bondage is created.
All the remedies are to make one mentally strong because the Mind is primary, and the rest are secondary. If your mind is healthy and well, your body is healthy automatically.
It is important to note that Vedic Astrology is a complex and multifaceted practice, and many different techniques and approaches can be used. Different astrologers may have their specific methods and techniques, and there may be some variations in the way that these basic techniques are used.
