Thousands of years ago, our ancestors had always associated every happening in our human lives to the stars and all other celestial bodies. The earliest writings were found in Ancient India on what they called the Vedas, which is actually an ancient spiritual text by the Hindus. It is in here that Vedic Astrology was given birth.
What is Vedic Astrology
Vedic Astrology, in ancient India, was also known as, “Jyotish” which means as the science of light. In this branch of science, it focuses on the observation of how the celestial bodies, their energy, and light are being reflected on earth which actually influences the human life events.
In this branch of astrology, they utilize the Sidereal or Stellar Zodiac, which means “pertaining to the stars”. In order to calculate the positions and movements of the planets, this tool observes the fixed stars of the constellations called Aries, Taurus, Gemini, etc., as a backdrop. Astronomers also use this in their calculations.
Precession of the Equinoxes
It is believed that it is not accurate enough to measure the signs by just looking at the relationship of the earth to the sun, which is referred as “precession of the equinoxes.” It is said that the Earth is spinning like a top in one direction and it slightly wobbles in the other. This occurrence acting on the Earth’s equator is brought about by the combined gravitational forces of the Sun and Moon. Let’s simply say that an entire day is lost in our revolution every 72 years thus the signs to remain astronomically literal might as well shift backward by a day to remain astronomically literal.
Planetary Periods of Influence
This “planetary periods” of influence is one of the most exciting tools of Vedic Astrology. This is highly predictive. In these periods, the astrologers look into your birth chart – its sign, house, aspects, house lordship, conjunctions, and strength which can predict specifically what you can expect to experience during that planetary period.
Vedic Astrology Compared
In comparison, the popular type of astrology is the Western Astrology that we see commonly available. It was devised about 2 to 3,000 years ago by the Greeks and Babylonians. It is said to believe that the solar system’s center is the sun and the Earth-Sun relationship is of utmost importance through the use of the Tropical Zodiac. Another one is the Chinese astrology. Its concepts are closely related to with Chinese philosophy,the harmony of heaven, earth and man. It’s tools some of which include the concepts of yin and yang, the Five phases, the 10 Celestial stems, the 12 Earthly Branches.
