Vedic astrology originated in India more than 5000 years ago. Many scholars believe it is much older than this. The Veda’s are India’s most ancient sacred texts. Vedic astrology is known also as “the eyes of the Veda’s”. This gift of ancient wisdom can teach us much about our spiritual path. We have the opportunity to understand ourselves. It is this insight, inner knowing that helps us to change or grow our consciousness. Vedic astrology helps us to understand our strengths and our weakness, where we may experience challenge and where there are rewards. With this knowledge, we can understand our personal motivations, improve areas of our lives that we focus on, and most importantly heal our wounds.
What is the difference between Vedic astrology and Western astrology?
Western astrology uses the tropical zodiac, the one that is seasonal based, the spring equinox begins in March. Vedic astrology uses the “sidereal” zodiac which is based on the planets actual relationship to the constellations of zodiac stars. This is why you may have a difference in your sign in Western and Vedic, you may have a Virgo Sun in Western astrology and a Leo Sun in Vedic astrology.
Western astrology is more about how you present yourself to the outer world, who you are when you step outside your front door, it is the outer persona. Vedic astrology is more concerned with your spiritual path and so sheds a light on the inner mind & soul.
