In India, the science of astrology is called Jyotish, which in Sanskrit means the science of light. It is the study of man’s response to the light waves that emanate from the planets and the stars. Jyotish has been practiced in India for thousands of years. It is a branch of the ancient Vedic knowledge that also produced the sciences of Yoga and Ayurveda. These three sister sciences help us to become more aware of our unique, innate characteristics. They also teach us how to refine our awareness and how to work in harmony with universal realities.
Vedic astrology is intimately linked to the concept of karma. The Vedic horoscope reveals one’s past karma. As Paramhansa Yogananda puts it, our unalterable past and its probably future results. It also shows the way to overcome karmic patterns by directing our efforts towards personal growth, healing, and self-transformation. Through Vedic astrology, then, we can better understand the subtle dynamics of our own lives, and of our relationships with others.
