Indian horoscope

Most often for the compilation of the Indian horoscope Vedic astrology is used – one of the oldest on earth (its age is more than 5,000 years).

There is an opinion that Indian or Vedic astrology (Jyotish or Jyotisha, from Skt. Jyot, “light”, and isha – “deity.”) Appeared more than 5,000 years ago, and represents a divine revelation, a higher knowledge, (the great sages-yogis) during meditation This area of ​​knowledge is inextricably linked with the Vedic architecture (Vastu-Shastra or Sthapatya-Veda) and the Vedic science of healing (Ayurveda).

The emergence of astrological science in ancient times is confirmed by the mention in the Rig Veda The Veda of the Hymns “, one of the oldest texts in the world, a monument of Indian literature) astrological calculations, for example, the spring equinox for 2500 BC and some dates for 4000 and 6000 BC In addition, the text can be found a list of nakshatras (signs of the lunar zodiac), planets (represented as a horse of seven heads and a rider-sun), etc. However, modern scholars do not agree with this point of view, although they have not yet come to a consensus About when exactly Jyotish appeared. Some believe that the aforementioned science appeared in the fifth and fourth centuries. BC. e. (it was then that the well-known ancient Indian astrologer and astronomer Lagadha recorded “Vedanga-jyotisha” containing calculations of the motion of the Moon and the Sun). Others believe that Indian astronomy and astrology can be divided into several periods, the oldest of which (Vedic) dates from 1000-400. BC. There is also an opinion that the system of astrological calculations is based on Hellenistic astrology (which, in turn, is based on Babylonian astrology), penetrated into India in the early II century. AD

When compiling a horoscope, an Indian astrologer can predict not only the fate of the person himself, but also, for example, the sex of his future children.

According to Indian astrologers, the graves are divided into masculine (Mars, Jupiter), female (Venus and the Moon) and “middle” – Mercury and Saturn. Therefore, if, for example, the Moon is in the 5th house (called Putra – “Son” and symbolizing children) – most likely, a daughter will be born, and if this house is influenced by Mars, Jupiter and Mercury – the probability of the birth of a boy is great .

In the Indian horoscope, you can find information about when a person should marry.

It is also possible to choose the most suitable partner. Yes, there is such information. And it can be supplemented with some refinements. For example, a woman can find out which side of the world (north, south, west, etc.) relative to the place of her birth is the most favorable place of birth for her future spouse. At the same time for the reference point is sometimes taken not the woman’s birthday, but the day in which she started the first menstruation. The compilation of marriage horoscopes, according to the Indians – is of paramount importance, since it is this horoscope that allows you to choose the best option for marriage. It is horoscopes of this kind that make it possible not only to avoid conflict in the family due to the mismatch of temperaments, but also to minimize the possibility for a woman to remain a widow at a young age (this circumstance was very significant in those times when traditions presupposed the self-immolation of widows).

When compiling a horoscope, Indian and European astrologers take into account the influence of the same planets and mathematical points (for example, the ascendant and the lunar knots).

This is not quite true. Firstly, not all Jyotish schools take into account the trans-terrestrial planets, explaining their position by the fact that astrology is in essence a “science of light”, so in the field of its vision the visible visible solar system (Surya or Ravi – Sun, Chandra – Luna, Buddha – Mercury, Shukra – Venus, Kuja – Mars, Guru – Jupiter, Shani – Saturn), to which Uranus, Neptune and Pluto do not belong.

Secondly, in addition to the known moon astrologers known as Rahu and Ketu, classified as chhaya grahas – “shadow planets”, and manifested, in the opinion of Indian astrologers, during solar and lunar eclipses), Jyotish considers 11 planks (called Dhuma, Vayatipat, Parivesha, Chapa, Upaketu, Gulik, etc.) – “subplanets” or “satellites.” They have no physical manifestation, but, in the opinion of Indian astrologers, they have a rather tangible impact on people.

Third, the ascendant (that is, the degree of the Zodiac into which the point of sunrise falls at the moment of birth), called in the Indian horoscope “lagna”, is not one, as in the European horoscope – there are 10 reference points or “special ascendants” . For example, Chandra-lagna – “The moon as an ascendant”, allows you to determine how the qualities of a person’s mind will manifest themselves in different life circumstances. Ravi-lagna – “The Sun of Birth,” makes it possible to reveal the qualities of his soul. Arudha-lagna will help to know how the individual will be perceived by the world, and what position in society will take. Chora lagna is important in analyzing a person’s ability to accumulate wealth, etc.

In the Indian horoscope, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are not counted.

This is not quite true. Some Jyotish schools consider planets located behind Saturn (Uranus is called Indra, Neptune – Varuna, Pluto – Yama). However, it is believed that their impact is very weak (because of the great distance from the Earth), because the mentioned planets are considered along with the Upagrah (shadow planets), and attention is given to them only after the main horoscope is compiled and remains only to clarify some of the nuances.

Indian horoscope

In the Indian horoscope, the planets are divided into “good” and “evil.” Astrologers-Indians believe that the nature of the planets is really different.

Venus and Jupiter are considered beneficial, Mars, Saturn, Rahu, Ketu – harmful (to reduce their influence, special rituals are carried out). Sometimes the Sun is included in the harmful planets, although most astrologers-Indians call it “cruel.” The moon and Mercury are of a dual nature. Naturally good, they periodically become angry (the Moon – in a period of decline, Mercury – when associated with evil planets). However, much depends on the spiritual level of a person. For example, Rahu (the patroness of the criminal world and cruelty, fears and insanity) at a high level knows mystic abilities, psychotherapy, pharmaceuticals and helps to determine in which areas the person should be perfected in this incarnation. Ketu, who at low level protects scandals, poisonings, disasters, devastation and madness, at a high level grants the ability for literary work, philosophy, deep knowledge of the true nature of things, yogic practices and symbolizes liberation from the wheel of Samsara (Moksha).

The behavior of the customer can influence the horoscope content.

This is indeed so. An Indian astrologer (especially when compiling a horar map – from Latin hora – “hour”, which allows one to give an exact answer to the question posed, as well as to obtain information about the cause of the problem) can take the word pronounced by the customer (shabda -lagna), part of the body to which the client (nama-lagna) touched. In addition, a number called a client at the request of an astrologer can be taken as a reference point, or a number obtained as a result of a numerological analysis of the first letter of the name or full name of the customer (nama-lagna).

If several planets in the horoscope are in a negative position – a person is likely to die.

No, Indian astrologers believe that such an outcome is possible only if all 9 planets in the human horoscope are in a “bad” position. If at least one or two planets are in a “good” position, you can correct the situation by using various ways to neutralize the negative influence of the planets.The most commonly used methods are: fiery ceremony (yajna), sacrifice (anushtana), worship (upasana). In the most difficult cases, one should not turn to the planets, but to the god Shiva, who, according to the Indians, has much greater power than all the planets put together, and can help even in a seemingly insoluble situation.

When a planet in the horoscope is in a “bad” position, it is enough to read the mantra – and the negative influence will be neutralized.

This is not quite true. First, according to Indian astrologers, in some cases, the mantra, the harmonizing effect of the planet (for each planet there is a special mantra), will not have the proper effect. Then the expert can recommend a mantra that activates the positive influence of another planet, which, first, is in a “good” position, and secondly, is a “friendly” heavenly object in a “bad” position. According to Indian astrologers, this ritual will help mediate influence on a planet in a “bad” position and, thus, minimize its negative impact on a person.

Secondly, the concept of “upasana” is not limited to reading mantras. To this can be attached the wearing of an amulet stone that can enhance or harmonize the impact of a particular planet (for the sun – the ruby, for the moon – pearls, for Rahu – hessonite and garnet, for Jupiter – yellow stone (topaz or sapphire), etc.) . And the choice of stones depends on how exactly this or that planet is located in the horoscope. For example, the stone of Mars is a red coral, but in the case when this planet is with the Moon in one house – it is recommended to wear white coral. If you want to activate and harmonize all the planets at once, you can use the “nine treasures” – a necklace that combines the stones of all 9 planets.

It should be remembered that the stone-amulet must be properly prepared. On a certain day of the week, the Brahmin (or future owner) holds the prana pratishthu, a special ceremony for the consecration of the stone, consisting of the marking of the yantra (the sacred image at the center of which the stone is placed), reading the mantra of the planet and the subsequent washing of the stone in certain substances (milk, honey, water and etc.). Another obligatory condition is that the amulet stone should be chosen natural, and properly furnished (recommendations on which metal the amulet stone should be used for and how it should be worn can be obtained from the astrologer who compiled the horoscope).

In addition, a person can in other ways harmonize the influence of the planets on his life. According to Indian astrologers, the planets affect all spheres of human life. Therefore, for example, trying to reduce the negative impact of Venus, you need to dress on white clothes (the color of Venus) on Fridays, attend concerts, invite friends and acquaintances, donate artists and artists (Venus is the patroness of art). And to harmonize the impact of Mars, you need to wear red, especially on Tuesdays (the day of Mars), perform various exercises, read the scriptures, dedicate this activity to Mars, and also sacrifice to the military, soldiers, orphans.

If there are demonic stars in a person’s horoscope, his destiny will be full of losses and misfortunes.

In Jyotish the stars that affect people are divided into 3 types: divine (deva-loki, sattva-guna), demonic (adhoh-loki, tama-guna), mixed or medium (manushya-loki, raja-guna). According to Vedic astrologers, the birth of a person under a particular star is due to his karmic merit or sins. Divine stars (Ashvini, Mrigashira, Punarvasu, etc.) give the opportunity for self-improvement, and subordination of emotions and intellect to the spirit. The stars “mixed” (Bharani, Rohini, Ardra, etc.) give a person the choice of a life path at his own discretion.A person born under a demonic star (Critic, Ashleth, Magha, etc.) must work out negative karma, and therefore is really doomed to suffering and deprivation. However, in the process of overcoming obstacles, he can comprehend the cause of suffering and find a way to self-improvement. At the same time, people who are under the beneficial influence of the deva-lokas, in some cases, get bogged down in idleness, forgetting about spiritual development and self-knowledge. In addition, remember the other components of the natal chart. For example, if in the horoscope of a person born under the influence of the divine star Aswini, the Sun is aspected by Mars – he will be cruel, Saturn – will experience poverty.

Indian zodiac horoscope is supplemented with information about tattvas – elements that correspond to each zodiac sign (Aries corresponds to tattva “oil”, Gemini – “clay”, Libra – “pairs”, Sagittarius – “grass”, etc.).

In Jyotish there really exists the concept of tattvas (Skt. “Truth”, “principle”, “essence”) – the first elements of being, the constituent parts of the universe. There are 36 tattvas, of which 5 (shuddha-tattva or “pure tattvas”) belong to the sphere of spiritual energy (for example, pure consciousness – Shiva-tattva), 7 (shuddhashuddha-tattvas or “pure unclean tattvas”) characterize the sphere of spiritual- magnetic forces (for example, magical energy – maya-tattva). The remaining 24 (ashuddha-tattva or “unclean tattvas”) correspond with the sphere of energies of the physical and astral plane. However, it should be taken into account that only 5 tattvas are compared with the signs of the horoscope, and not with the signs of the zodiac, but with nakshatras (for example, Ashvini corresponds to the tattva of the earth, Ardregatva of water, Uttarettattva of fire, Mulletattva of air, Dhanisthe – tattva ether ). In addition, according to Indian astrologers, the same tattvas affect the time intervals, changing every 24 minutes (ie the full cycle lasts 2 hours). Each tattva has its own color and the planet-ruler (akasha-tattva or ether-black color, ruler-Saturn, vayu-tattva or air-blue and green colors, rulers-Moon and Mercury, etc.) “Tattvic” horoscope “oil”, “clay”, “grass”, “steam”, “gold”, “stone”, etc. in the list of tattvas do not appear.

Anyone can turn to an Indian astrologer, and get a very accurate horoscope.

According to the experts, Indian astrology really differs from the European in its accuracy in determining the location of the planets at the time of human birth, has more possibilities for making predictions (different horoscope reading schemes allow an Indian astrologer to give the fullest possible characterization of both the personal aspects of the customer and all its manifestations in public life, the spiritual sphere, etc.).

However, it should be remembered that Jyotish has a serious philosophical basis, which is an integral part of the life of every Indian. This state of affairs is very beneficial for the level of understanding and acceptance of the astrologer’s advice by the Indians. While to the inhabitants of other countries the aforementioned philosophical system may be completely unknown, therefore some of the information set forth in the horoscope, and many of the advice of an Indian astrologer, are often either not understood and accepted, or misinterpreted by people living in Europe, America, Russia.

Indian horoscope

The compilation of a horoscope is always associated with interference in the person’s karma.

According to Indian astrologers, this is indeed the case. And the more negation and misunderstanding on the part of the customer – the more painful for the astrologer the consequences of such contact. Therefore, firstly, the Indian astrologer will give advice on correcting karmic circumstances only if he sees that the client can understand the essence of the problem and is ready to do everything to correct the situation that has arisen.The same rule works, for example, in the case when the horoscope foreshadows a quick death of the customer – the astrologer will report this only provided that the person is prepared correctly (calmly, with faith in the subsequent incarnation) to perceive information of this kind. Secondly, there are methods of clearing from the negative consequences of contact with the karma of the person to whom the horoscope was compiled. Indian astrologers perform sadhana (spiritual practices), japa (reading mantras, in particular Gayatri mantras), etc.
