Importance of Vedic Astrology (JYOTISH)
Astrology is the language of the stars ... it is in fact the Universal language.
Astrology is basically a science of time. Every moment in time has a certain quality attached to it. By being born at a particular moment in time under the heavens we imbibe this quality. The personal horoscope is just a simplified map of the heavens at the moment we are born. It is in turn a guide map for our journey through time on the planet known as earth.
Astrology does not pronounce any judgement. Just like nature, it has no good or bad. It just reveals what was, what is, and what can be.
Astrology is not about depending on fate as a lot of people purport it to be. In fact, it puts more emphasis on karma than fate. Today's 'karma' is tomorrow's 'fate'.
Astrology is the science of 'light' and lights the path known as life. It is finally up to us to traverse the path once it has been lighted. Astrology is amazingly accurate ... it can work accurately even on a daily or hourly basis if required.
Astrology is not only the foremost of the outer sciences which deal with the nature of the physical universe, it is one of the most important of the inner or spiritual sciences which deal with the mind and soul.
