SEPTEMBER 2016 ECLIPSES: A TIME FOR REFLECTION

In ancient times, eclipses were omens portending doom, because the light of the Sun or the Moon gets obscured. But what do eclipses signify in astrology? Generally, eclipses are indications of change for good or bad. On a personal level, sometimes these changes are very subtle and on an inner level; at other times, they are fully felt as transformative. In a natal chart, eclipses have an influence when they fall over a person’s rising sign, Moon or Sun as well as any planet that is within 5⁰ of the eclipse. It is important to look at which houses those planets rule as the significations of those houses will also get affected. It is best if possible not to embark on trips or any major enterprises three days before and three days after an eclipse. The effect of a solar eclipse is longer than a lunar and depends on the length of the eclipse itself. Read morehttp://shivaloka.com/planetary-news/september-2016-eclipses-time-reflection/

Vedic Astrology (Jyotish)

The horoscope is a map of the heavens at the time and place of birth showing the position of the planets in relation to the newborn child. Astrology studies the combined influences of these planets as fields of energy that influence the lives of human beings. Vedic Astrology (called “Jyotish,” or the Science of Light) […]

THE ASTROLOGICAL CHART: HOW MUCH IS FATED AND IS THERE FREE WILL?

In the Western world, we prefer the notion that we have free will and are the creators of our destiny. In the East however, the notion of fate is very strong. How does Vedic astrology reconcile these two notions? Vedic astrology or Jyotish as it is called in Sanskrit, is the science of tracking the […]

Or understand which career is best suited to your talents and temperament? Or what are your partnership or marriage prospects? We all have wondered why sometimes things fall right into place whereas at other times everything is a struggle. Or why do we have an instant connection with someone, whereas another relationship, no matter how close, is a constant challenge. These are just a few questions that Vedic astrology or Jyotish as it is called in Sanskrit, sheds light upon. This ancient art of psychology and behavior analysis and forecasting events comes to us from India and is an invaluable tool in helping us make informed decisions in life.

 

Imagine that at the time of your birth, we took a thorough snapshot of the sky indicating the placement of planets, constellations, specific stars, and the patterns that they formed in the heavens. This becomes the blueprint for the heavenly influences operating in your present life contributing to your physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual characteristics. While this snapshot is static and shows your inherent traits and the karmic influences that you have brought with you in this lifetime, your existence is full of changes, transitions and growth. Your horoscope is the reflection as seen from the earth, of the planetary positions when you were born, and becomes a dynamic evolving chart by virtue of the continuous transits of the planets in the sky. Various other techniques are used in Jyotish to look at how the heavenly bodies affect you on a day to day basis. While we are all subject to the past karmas (law of action and effect) that we bring into our lives and the new karmas that we create in the existing one, we also have the power of choice, which comes with self-awareness, the most powerful tool that we possess to promote change and self-growth. It is here that Jyotish can help us to better understand ourselves and the energies operating in our lives so that we can make the choices that are most supportive of our growth.

 

While Western and Vedic astrology have many things in common, they also have a number of differences which you can read about here.
