Indian Astrology, a gift from the Vedic period

Indian Astrology, a noble and natural cosmic science which dates back to 3000 B.C. is found in the ‘Mahopanishat’ or ‘Jyothishmati’ a part of Atharva Veda. This was developed by the Maharishis of Vedic times. Among them Aryabhatta, Marharishi Parashar, and Varaha Mihira are known for their contributions. According to astrology, the events related to a person’s life are predicted based upon the positions of various celestial objects at birth. Astrology calculates the position of planet and how they are related to each other.

As per Vedic Astrology, there are 9 planets, i.e. Sun, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn and two shadowy planets Rahu and Kethu. The 27 constellations or nakshathras known as stars are Aswini, Bharani, Krittika, Rohini, Mrigasira, Aridra, Punarvasu, Pushyami, Aslesha, Makha, Pubba, Uttara, Hasta, Chitta, Swati, Visakha, Anuradha, Jyeshta, Moola, Poorvashadha, Uttarashada, Sravana, Dhanisha, Satabhisha, Poorvabhadra, Uttarabhadra and Revathy.

While watching from the earth, the Sun, Moon and the planets appear to travel through a particular line in the sky, which is called the Zodiac. This Zodiac is divided into 12 equal parts, i.e. Mesha (Aries), Vrishabha (Taurus), Mithuna (Gemini), Kataka (Cancer), Simha (Leo), Kanya (Virgo), Thula (Libra), Vrischika (Scorpio), Dhanus (Sagittarius), Makara (Capricorn), Kumbha (Aquarius) and Meena (Pisces).
