While a lot of people are engaged in fervently gathering inputs from Indian astrology for knowing about their future and to make some crucial decisions of their lives, it is highly interesting to know how Indian Astrology works. As suggested by its very name, the basics of Indian astrology stems from the study of astral bodies (planets) during one's birth time.
Vedic astrology believes that the position of stars and planets during one's birth indicate the entire map of his or her life and also the consequences of the deeds done during the past lives.
In the first place, it is important to note that the plants and stars do not cause what you experience in your life, but they help measure, interpret and time them out. In this regard, it is highly relevant to note what Sri Paramahansa Yogananda stated about astrology.
He says that every child is born on a given day when the cosmic rays are perfectly in the wavelength of the karmas done by the individual. Therefore, the horoscope of every individual is a perfect indication of his indelible past
From times immemorial, the zodiac chart and the horoscope are called as the Kala Chakra (wheel of time). In other words, we can say that the astrological chart of an individual is a sort of clock that perfectly reveals the timings in your life.
Strangely, the astrological clock has not just three arms like the conventional clocks, they have ten hands namely your rising sign and the planets including Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, and Rahu and Ketu. The last two are understood as the eclipse nodes that are responsible for the occurrences of solar and lunar eclipses.
Taking into account all these observations, an accomplished astrologer can clearly reveal a great part of your life including the instances when you will succeed and fail, the times when you shall experience good health and ill health, when you will come across love relationships , when you can marry, the information about your children and your relationship.
With them and the time when you shall actually die. Though some expert astrologers can certainly tell about all these issues so perfectly, many of them do not do so since often truth is unpalatable and indigestible.
Everyone's personal zodiac chart and astrological chart are the ones that tick their lives on the earth. None have the power to change it. However, understanding it shall let you benefit a lot and stay at peace. When you know what shall happen at a point and what shall not happen despite best efforts, you can plan the course of your life accordingly and do a better job. This is the essence of helping people with the interpretations regarding their astrological chart.
Indian astrology is deeply spiritual. It heavily draws from the universal forces and powers that are superhuman and beyond the purview of the senses. The course of life for an individual changes according to the changing planetary positions. In this way, every individual journeys till his last breath.
