What is Vedic Astrology?
The Astrology of India is said to have been intuitively perceived thousands of years ago by the same ancient mystics who develop the elaborate system of Yoga and Meditation that has mainstream in the west. It is called “Jyotish” meaning “Light of God” or “Lord of Light” and is used to illuminate ones spiritual path and purpose as well as give practical insight to day to day activities.
It comes from a group of ancient texts known as the Vedas which contain an entire body of knowledge that were given by these ancient mystics to help humanity achieve peace and fulfillment. There are six limbs of the Vedas where each limb was delineated to a different body part. Jyotish was given to be the “Eyes” of Vedas revealing the importance that Astrology plays to see reality both inwardly and outwardly.
