If you have ever thought that there is more to your life than meets the eye, you may be interested in learning about the invisible, yet powerful forces of Vedic Astrology by working with a Vedic Astrologer.
A Vedic Astrologer is someone who practices Vedic Astrology (also known as Hindu astrology) which is a branch of science that studies the relationship between people’s lives and their karma by determining the exact locations of planets at specific times during a person’s life.
In Sanskrit, the ancient language of Hinduism, Vedic Astrology is also known as Jyotish which is translated to “the science of light”. A Vedic Astrologer can look carefully at the cosmic influences in your life and see where your strengths, challenges and ultimately your full potential lies. This powerful tool can assist you in moving forward and providing guidance in your life.
What is the Difference Between a Western and Vedic Astrologer?
You’ve probably read your horoscope on the way to work and are most likely familiar with Western Astrology. The basis of Western Astrology is that the year is divided into twelve sections or constellations. Ultimately, every person has a zodiac sign associated with their birthday(Virgo, Leo, Taurus, etc).
The Western Astrologer, a person who uses these signs to make predictions about your life, uses this information to talk about specific personality traits and past, present and future life events.
Western Astrologers take a more psychological approach when giving an individual their reading. This is the most common form of astrology seen in the West.
The purpose of Vedic Astrology is for people to regain their connection to the divine and to understand that we are souls having a human experience. The planets in Vedic Astrology are viewed as the Karmas of the soul. As we move from one life to another we bring the alignment of certain planets with us and leave others behind.
To read your Vedic Chart, a Vedic Astrologer will ask for the following details: your birth time (as specific as possible), your name as well as the city that you were born in. From this, they will create your “natal” or birth chart. This will allow them to have a look at which planets are dominating certain areas of your chart (career, health, partnership, etc.) to give you more insight about the purpose of the current life you are living.
What is Reincarnation?
The basis of Vedic Astrology is that we are souls that continue to experience many lives (or reincarnate) at very specific times and places to embark on a unique journey in each lifetime. We continue to reincarnate so we can balance our karma from previous lives.
What is the Law of Karma?
The Law of Karma is that for every intentional action, there is a result. It focuses on understanding the cycle between cause and effect. The goal in each lifetime is to work towards balancing our karma until the cycle of reincarnation is complete.
