Astrology is also known as Kalavidana and Kalagnana or the science of time. It is the study of Kala Purusha, Time personified as the Zodiac. Astrology is the only science, even in the 21st century, which helps one understand the quality of time. Time, as we all know, is the canvas on which life flows. And life is nothing but a sequence or series of events or situations drawn on or latched on to the canvas of time. All creation begins, continues and finally dissolves in time. Take away time and the events have nowhere to stand upon. Creation itself would collapse. Therefore, time is the essence (substratum) of all existence. Time being so important, modern science so far has not even thought it fit to work at understanding its quality. It is only astrology that can do it through planetary movements and by tracing a pattern in them.

What was the quality of time on January 26, 2000 at about 8.00 a.m. in Bhuj in Gujarat when a devastating earthquake killed thousands of people? What was the quality of time on September 11, 2001 at about 9.30 a.m. in New York when the World Trade Centre was blasted by terrorists?

A critical examination of these moments will show you that they (whether at Bhuj or New York) were totally different from any other moments of the decade. These points of time had a unique quality about them - the quality' of destruction on a massive scale.

Vedic Astrology is a tremendous science and an art form that helps us find the right path to move ahead in life. By using the nine planets, twenty seven Nakshatras, and their placement and combinations in twelve houses, an astrologer can create one's birth chart. And the only information required for the same is an individual's date, time and place of birth. This birth chart is the map of a person's life, and gives detailed information about every aspect of his life, which includes his nature, characteristics, personality, health issues, financial success and his relationships with his spouse, parents, family and friends.

One's career is a greatly significant aspect of astrology, and by judicious use of Vedic astrology, one can find solutions to career problems, and at every stage of one's career. Being concerned about one's career and its progress is an intrinsic tendency, and people are often implicated with the right career path that they must take up, such that they scale the heights of achievement in their field, and attain success which is sustainable.

With the aid of Vedic astrology, a person can be sure about the right career path for himself, which augurs well in terms of both, success and peace of mind. Similarly when a student is trying to figure out the right college for himself, or the field of education that he must go for, astrology can help him get over the dilemma. By making use of an individual's birth chart, through astrology, one can find out the branch of study that would be most lucrative for success, and this would enable one to not just find a job that one loves, but also ensure career growth and success in the long run.

Similarly, with the sound counsel of an able and knowledgeable astrologer, one can find accurate and requisite resolutions to all career related queries that may be at the back of one's mind. The questions often pertain to issues like the best time to go ahead and start a business, or the ideal time to consider expansion of a business. One might want to know more about the avenues where setting up a business would be most lucrative, or the areas of expansion which are most promising as per one's birth chart, planetary configurations and cosmic patterns.

This works equally well for someone who is planning for a change in work, and astrology can enable one to figure out the right time to go ahead with a job change. While astrology helps one find the right solutions for one's career and business, it can help one get an insight into issues faced at the workplace, or with one's boss or colleagues.

Alternately, Vastu, a wonderful implement of Vedic astrology based upon construction of buildings, can be greatly helpful in helping one sorting out issues like the right place to set up a business. With the aid of Vastu Shastra, one can know how the physical work environment should be planned to ensure maximum productivity, positive vibes and a peaceful and congenial atmosphere among co-workers.
