The Roots of Indian Astrology

The roots of Indian Astrology can be traced back to the dawn of history. According to Indian Astrology, your true self & personality is defined by the position of the planets, at the time and place of your birth. The present and future positions of the planets are compared with those of your birth chart to predict your future. This is the basis of Indian Astrology. Hindu astronomy is called ‘Jyotisha’ in Sanskrit. It means the ‘Science of Light or of celestial Objects’. Astrology called ‘Phalita Jyotisha’ – is a subsidiary branch of the same. Its relationship with astronomy is akin to that of technology to basic or pure sciences. It is a well developed system that has evolved over several centuries both in the East and in the West. It is believed that science of astrology originally originated in India and has been practiced continuously for more than 8000 years. The very fact that the astrologers chosen and involved in certain tests were able to predict very correctly the professions, important events and even diseases, of persons whose horoscopes only had been supplied to them, shows that astrology is not superstition and astrologers are not humbugs. Little does one realize that the science of Indian astronomy was so much advanced thousands of years ago, that the word ‘day’ is derived from the Sanskrit root (Dagdh) fire (the Sun), without the help of a telescope, using only our rishis’ (re-see) ‘mindoscope’, their consciousness, that could match even the Hubble telescope in space.
