WHAT IS VEDIC ASTROLOGY :-
Astrology is the study of the relationship between the
stars and planets and our lives on earth. Vedic Astrology
involves the interpretation of the horoscope or birth
chart and it is essentially based on the idea of cycles
and patterns in life which correspond on the cycles
of the planets. Through the analysis of these cycles
in the past and present it is possible to interpret
the possible future.
ASTROLOGY AS AN OCCULT SCIENCE
Astrology is a noble science which is as old as the
ages of the Vedas. It depends on the position of the
planets ascertained astronomically. It explain the celestial
phenomenon and the corresponding terrestrial events.
The true meaning of astrology is the “Message
of Stars”. By using salient principles of Astrology
depending on the position of the planets ascertained
astronomically one can forecast events for the benefit
of all and as such it is a useful science for interpreting
nature as it explains the cause and effects of events.
ASTROLOGY AND KARMA
Karma is the sum total of one’s physical, mental
and spiritual efforts and in fact they manufacture destiny.
Astrology is based on the relationship of cause and
effects. If there is an effect, there must be a cause
preceding it. If an event good or bad happens today
then there must be a cause for it. Certain karmas produce
immediate results wherein others fructify after a long
time period and this concept of law of cause and effect
takes one to the belief in birth and re-birth. Karmas
done in one birth must manifest some time in a later
An Astrologer can point out which of the karmas from
the past can be overcome and those, which can not be
overcome and therefore have to be suffered.
HOW ASTROLOGY WORKS

and date of birth of the individual to whom it will
refer. It shows the positions of all the planets in
the signs of zodiac at the time of birth.
The skill of the astrologer is to interpret the birth
chart, which is said to set the pattern for the growth
of the person throughout their life. In other words,
what will happen is described by the positions of the
planets and the signs of the zodiac at birth. Astrology
is based on a system of ‘correspondences’
which means that each planet will correspond with different
ways of behaving resulting in different personality
