The origin of Vedic astrology goes back to the ancient Indian traditions as old as Atharva Veda. All the information about Vedic astrology is present in Ayurveda and VedangJyotisha, an early work about astrology in Vedas. It is commonly known as Jyotisha. According to Vedic astrology, karma and fortune are closely interlinked. An intricate part of Indian astrology is the birth chart or Kundli. Based on the accurate birth timings, date and place, the position of your planets determine the future events in your life. It considers the fixed zodiac to determine the events and reveal the future.
Astrology is an age-old science that helps astrologers predict the future for people based on their birth charts and planetary positions. Many a times, people expect astrologers to be blessed with the power of eradicating future problems from their life; however, this is not a valid outlook! Since astrologers, too are human beings and are not vested with the power of changing destiny. Still, there are certain astrological remedies that may be prescribed as an effort to avoid any foreseen problems.
These astrological remedies may be suggested by astrologers after an in-depth study of a person's birth chart or after psychic readings. Astrological remedies and psychic readings and healing are very popular today, but they date back to ancient times.
Like every science, Vedic astrology has its base in theory and its practical applications. An underlying belief of Vedic astrology is that its purpose is to provide active tools and methods to access the deeper layers of human consciousness and empower a person to deal with his environs in a better fashion and help him/her to alter the subtle forces that make up the intangible environment. This is the arm of Vedic astrology that deals with Remedy - the technological application of the theories and principles of Vedic astrology.
In Vedic astrology, the technology is a matter of processes, which initiates a strong motivation and intent within ourselves to harnesses our internal energies towards improvement of our relationships with the cosmos and the cosmic forces within us. It employs intangible factors and subtle forces around us - like gems, colors, sound, shapes & visual effects; besides elaborate and principled recommendations for diets & lifestyles. Adoption of these recommended practices as outlined by the ancient sages, helps a person change his/her live and can aim to truly become the master of his/her own destiny. This is the essence of Vedic Astrological remedy.
Making a prognosis on the elements of challenges and problems being faced by an Individual and recommending a remedy for the same is a rather complex process involving theory, practice and experience. We accept this process naturally and involuntarily, when we submit ourselves to a doctor - given his specialty skills and training.
The process of identification of an astrological remedy is largely a similar, complex process that calls for specialty skills & training from an astrologer. The optimum astrological remedies can only be suggested by a competent and experienced astrologer, who must also be spiritually inclined. The recommendations must be based on pure spirit of healing and he/she must not be motivated by any personal greed or profit.
