Vedic Astrology is an ancient Indian Science which explains planetary motions and positions with respect to time and their effects on humans and other entities on earth. Astrology is the language of the stars. It is in fact the Universal language. Astrology is basically a science of time. It is based on Astronomy. Every moment in time has a certain quality attached to it. By being born at a particular moment in time under the heavens we imbibe this quality. The personal horoscope is just a simplified map of the heavens at the moment we are born. It is in turn a guide map for our journey through time on the planet known as earth.
Astrology does not pronounce any judgment. Just like nature, it has no good or bad. It just reveals what was, what is, and what can be. Astrology is not about depending on fate as a lot of people purport it to be. In fact, it puts more emphasis on karma than fate. Today's karma is tomorrow's fate. Astrology is the science of 'light' and lights the path known as life. It is finally up to us to traverse the path once it has been lighted. Astrology is amazingly accurate. It can work accurately even on a daily or hourly basis if required. Astrology is not only the foremost of the outer sciences which deal with the nature of the physical universe, it is one of the most important of the inner or spiritual sciences which deal with the mind and soul.
As we have seen, the birth chart reflects what circumstances in this life we can expect to experience. According to the Vedic Astrology, these effects are a result of past actions, actions in previous lifetimes.
Our time and place of birth is not random, It precisely specifies a birth chart for us, delivering the results of our past actions through the quality of Nature Law at the time of birth. The act of birth imprints these laws in our physiology and the environment we are born in, The planetary positions are merely convenient indicators of those laws, accurate instruments to measure, calculate and interpret these laws.
The interpretation of the birth chart is merely a reflection of our stage of evolution at the time of our birth, it does not limit us in any way to grow and improve upon it. Even though the analysis includes a lifetime of dasas and transits, one should realize that all of that remains relative to the evolutionary state at the time of birth. Past actions are the result of past choices. When people become aware of choices that they no longer wish to keep, They can change their life by starting to choose differently. New choices will start creating new responses, which will gradually change our circumstances. Reactions and responses from past actions take time to manifest, and remove those Karmas. Remedial measures are things we can do to help correct or neutralize the Undesired results of past actions. There are different types of remedial measures:
1. Mantra Jap Pujan
3. Gemstones etc
