astrology, also called Jyotish, is the traditional astrology of India
and part of the greater system of yogic knowledge, with its profound
wisdom and cosmic understanding. While similar to Western astrology
in using planets, signs, houses and aspects, it calculates these differently
and adds many unique factors of its own. Vedic astrology is a comprehensive
tool of astrological interpretation, containing accurate methods for
examining all aspects of life from health to enlightenment. It has tremendous
power both for prediction of specific events and for giving guidance
on how to live in harmony with the universe, helping us to understand
and transcend the limiting influence of karma.
Now gaining recognition in the West, Vedic astrology is certain to be one of the most important new trends in global astrology for the coming century.
