Astrology is a science for looking into future. The strength of planets at the time of birth helps us in identifying the weak or strong areas of our life. For example let us take the Sun. If it is strong at the time of the birth it blesses fortunes to father and the person starts enjoying life and resources right from birth. The Sun blesses the person with good organisational power and inherent intelligence which help the person in learning and excelling in ones professional ventures. If the Sun is weak, then the life of the father is full of struggles and the person does not get right opportunity of learning organisation skills in life. One does not enjoy good social interaction and always confronts the feeling of inferiority.
Similarly, when Moon is strong at birth the person enjoys the comforts of a happy mother who can take care of the child in the desired manner. The mother is the first teacher of the child. A strong Moon gives strong foundation for learning. The Moon represents mind and mental strength. A strong Moon blesses the person with good mental strength, timely learning and good schooling for proper professional training at the appropriate stage.
A strong Mercury blesses the person with analytical skills for scientific and mathematical studies. These aspects are very important for understanding and taking up scientific and professional studies. A person develops good confidence in life which is required for each and every aspect of life.
A strong Mars blesses the person with courage and stamina. It is required for physical and mental growth of the person. The contribution of Mars is very important in life and it makes the person strong, confident and adventurous.
A strong Jupiter blesses the person with good health as it rules liver and intelligence. The physical health of the person is dependent upon the proper functioning of the liver and the mental health of the person is dependent upon the intelligence of the person.
A strong Venus blesses the person with comforts in life, love life, team spirit and happy relationship. One is good at business and enjoys life.
A strong Saturn helps the person in facing challenges of life and leading the life in a just and honest manner.
When the planets are weak at the time of the birth or are under the malefic or unfavorable planetary influences, the person faces problems at various stages of life in respect of aspects ruled by the planets. By strengthening the weak planets through a special purpose Kavach containing gemstones ruled by the planets, we improve upon the strength of birth planets for better results in our life.
Astrology helps us (i) in understanding potentialities of our personality to enable us to chart the course of success in our lives in the matters of health, career, finances, love and relationships; (ii) in easing anxiety; (iii) in preventing dreaded diseases; (iv) in developing leadership qualities and (v) in looking into the future.
Exciting results in life are given by the strong planets. The weak planets during their sub periods bring setbacks, delays, denials, stress, instability and depression and also become vulnerable for damages due to natal/transit afflictions.
By strengthening astral remedies for benefic weak planets one reduces the chances of stresses and strains and increases the chance of betterment.
The unfavorable planetary influences are managed by doing propitiatory astrological remedies. The suggested propitiatory remedies in astrology are based on the planetary tastes and bhoota yagya - one of the five great sacrifices.
The strong influence of Rahu or Ketu or the most malefic planet to weak planets causes inflammation, deformities to children, congenital defects in children, professional setbacks, depression, strains in business relationship, persisting infections, allergies, over ambitiousness, losses through risky or speculative ventures, sexually transmitted diseases, black magic/evil spirits and problems in marital relationship.
The planetary strengths and afflictions diagnosis is as important as immunisation care for the newly born child.
Astrology helps us in enjoying good health, prosperity & spiritual advancement besides helping in avoiding strains in marital relationship, business and professional matters with the help of astral remedies. Blessed ones are impelled by God to make use of astral advice and astral remedies for happiness, peace & prosperity.
Astrology remedies application can be traced back to centuries. Jyothi means light or flame.Ish means god. Jyothish means lord of the light. Vidya means knowledge. Jyothish Vidya is the study of all aspects of planets and luminaries – the Sun and the Moon.
Jyothish Vidya (Astrology) is prevalent and applicable for the benefit of humanity from time immemorial and its origin can be traced to the origin of life through the mythological and religious revelations. Hindu gods and their incarnations were using this knowledge as found in Hindu religion books known as epics. Similarly, we find the mention of predictions by knowledgeable people having divine knowledge even by Lord Jesus Christ around the time of last supper.
Astrology is a blessing for the humanity. It blesses by divine revelations through the sacred knowledge on various aspects of life. The Vedic knowledge is contained in four sacred books, known as Vedas and six additional sections known as Vedangas. These Vedas and Vedangas are the oldest documents describing hymns, sacred incantations, philosophy, religion and literature. The knowledge contained in Vedas and Vedangas is the source of inspiration for the scholars in various fields all over the world. These were organised by Rishis – saints having divine vision – for the benefit of the humanity.
Astrology principles were narrated to their disciples by Rishis and as the fountain head is known as Maharishi Parashara in Dwapara Yuga. As per Indian mythology prior to Kaliyuga, the present era started over 5000 years back, there were the eras of Satyuga, Treta Yuga and Dwapara Yuga. Brihat Parashara Hora contains principles for prediction and palliatives (planetary remedies). In Kaliyuga there had been many commentators in classical age and in modern age.
Astrology principles were based on the observed astronomical phenomenon which helped in predicting. Vedic Jyothish consists of observational astronomy; astronomical and astrological calculations; natal or birth astrology; prasna or horary astrology; muhurta or auspicious time; and nimita – means interpretation of omens. Planetary influences are indicators of events in life. Planetary influences can also be changed, it is believed, to some extent through planetary remedies.
Astrology & Modern Sciences: These days we have the benefit of observatory for giving us the authenticated data on observational astronomy and we have the benefit of computes and software for astronomical and astrological calculations which are necessary for study of birth astrology, prasna astrology where birth details are not known and muhurta (identifying auspicious times for starting various significant events in life; e.g. progeny matters, marriage, starting business ventures, joining jobs, surgery, etc. etc.

a) Business Applications of Astrology
Astrology helps for physical fitness. The horoscope reading has
applications. Not only it helps in chartering the course of lives of
persons but also helps
in chartering the course of business enterprises, institutions and
nations. The only
requirement is the moment of coming into existence of a particular
person, organization or
a nation. It removes uncertainties and reveals opportunities.
The success of any business enterprise depends on its managers and their
sincerity to the
enterprise. The biggest risk, business is encountered with is the
expected and actual
performances of the top managers. Horoscopes reading provides advance
insight in the
trustworthiness, intelligence,physical fitness, leadership alertness to
utilize opportunities for growth and diversification, etc of the
persons being considered
for appointment as business managers.
Professionals recruited using scientific methods of induction and proper
fail to fulfill performance and expectations. The large sums of money
are spent on advertisements, selection etc. A few years back a large
governmental organization in India, employing more than 25,000
employees in five plants ventured recruitment of a batch of first class
qualified engineers and management trainees. After a heavy
advertisement campaign on all India basis, short listing by a firm of
psychological consultants and interviews, 150 engineers were selected at a
direct cost of about 50,000 per head. The sad part of the story was that
60% of the new recruits deserted the company within three months of
their joining. The company later on attributed these to hostile
organizational climate and inadequate and irksome service conditions.
How can the deserters, who could not solve their own internal problems,
encounter and adopt the new organizational problems. Instead of the
fighting spirit, they withdrew from the scene. It clearly shows that
something lacked in the so called scientific methods of selection.
Horoscope reading can act as a third eye for the investment makers and
enable them in
hiring right persons for the job.
Astrology & New Dimensions: It is a new dimension as hitherto the role of horoscope reading had
been thought to be only in
the case of physical or mental problems, match making, etc. It can
help business in the fields
of recruitment of personnel, investment decisions, new product launch,
entering into new
collaboration arrangements, scanning general and political environment
for the business
QUESTION 3:. What are the basis of Horoscopic Analysis ?
Astrology is based on the premise that the natal
position of planets is
dependant on the past karma of the human beings and gives complete
picture of the life of the
person concerned. It also believes that the horoscope /natal chart of
the person tells us
whether the malefic influences can be warded off or reduced. It
believes in strengthening the
weak planets to augment their full effects and to reduce the extent of
QUESTION 4:. What is Horoscope Reading ?
Astrology chart or horoscope reading is as important as having a child immunized against
Horoscope reading means reading of the divine message regarding the
trends in the life of
a person. No science on earth other than the horoscope reading, can
reveal the mysteries of
life. Horoscope is a record of the planetary movement noted for the
time and date of birth with
reference to a particular place. Our lives are threatened with
dreaded diseases for which we
do not have a treatment in spite of the spectacular advancement in the
The reason is that the worldly sciences cannot control the natural
phenomenon. The divine
message offers remedies through astrological remedial measures.
Astrology remedies seekers turn to the divine science for the
help after fruitlessly
trying all other worldly remedies. The problem faced can be in any of
the spheres of life.
It can be physical, psychological, material or spiritual pursuits. We
all believe in the phrase,
"prevention is better than cure". Turning to astral- remedies in the
end puts us to an
irretrievable loss of time and opportunity for corrective measures in
the beginning. Horoscope
reading at the time of the birth can guide us about the weak areas and
the physical diseases to
which one is vulnerable. Astral-remedies are suggested which can save one
from growth of
cancerous diseases, addiction to drugs or other simple means of
intoxication , AIDS, etc.
Astrology chart influences: The various aspects of human life are governed by the position of
planets as noted down at the
time of birth in the form of a horoscope. It is the weakness and
affliction to weak planets
which causes problems in life. The weakness of planets can be guarded
against by use of
astral-remedial measures. Identification of weak, afflicting and
afflicted planets is very
easy and the methodology has been explained by the author in his book, "
IN ASTROLOGY ", published by M/S.Sagar Publications.
QUESTION 5:. Once we know about the future can we change the luck or the planetary
The problems in life are caused by weak planets and/or afflictions to
them. Therefore, two way
application of astral remedies is administered after diagnosing the
influences in a chart. Firstly, the strength can be provided by
various methods, for example, stones,
colour therapy, KAVACH (the protective shield or yantra containing
mystical numbers of the
planets) in an auspicious time. Secondly, the malevolence of the
functionally malefic planets
is reduced by offering propitiatory charities concerning these planets.
The two way application
helps in reducing the impact of malefic planetary influence(s) to a
large extent. The
preventive use of astral remedies is much more useful than the curative
QUESTION 6:. Can you explain the astrological remedies please?
Real benefit of astral remedies.
Generally, people resort to astral remedies in the end after trying all
other therapies and
ignoring the distinct advantage of preventive diagnostic power of the
Needless to stress, the benefit of preventive medicine/redressable
measures is always better
than that of the curative measures. For both curative and preventive
mixture of the astral remedies is applied.
QUESTION 7:. How colours can be used as remedies ?
COLOUR THERAPY : This is a very potent preventive remedy for
epilepsy, mental retardation,
psychic problems, etc, and is practised through the use of favourable
colours in the matters of
dress and furnishings in one's living room.
QUESTION 8:. What are the components of astrology? Can you please explain
MAJOR CONSTITUENTS OF THE SYSTEM : The divine science of astrology has
four major constituents, i.e. signs, houses, planets and planetary
periods. It will be in the fitness of things if the four constituents
of the system are briefly discussed for developing the understanding for
learning the Hindu system of astrology through the Systems' Approach propounded by Vedic Astrologer & Author V K Choudhry.
A. SIGNS : The first constituent of the system is signs. They are
twelve in number and are
ruled by the planets, the Sun, the Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn.
B.HOUSES : The second constituent of the system is houses. These are
twelve in number and each
of the twelve houses of the horoscope deals with specific
significations. The significations of
houses fructify under the planetary periods connected with them.
C.PLANETS : The third constituent of the system is planets. The
planets signify various things
which have to be learnt by heart. For example, the Sun is personified as a king
in the planetary cabinet.
... Persons having the Moon , the significator of mind, in the sign of the
Sun would have the
mental frame of enjoying life like a king i.e of thinking big. The
Sun signifies father,
husband and children. He also signifies heart and the stomach as
physical parts of the body.
Similarly, various significations are attached to various planets.
The Sun and the Moon are
luminaries but have also been referred to as planets in our texts.
Additionally, planets govern the house(s) in a nativity where their
signs fall. For example, if the sign Leo falls in the 8th house, the Sun would rule
the significations of the 8th house.
The Sun and the Moon govern one sign each of the Zodiac whereas the
remaining planets govern two signs each. Each planet has one sign as its
mooltrikona sign which helps in identifying the functional nature of the
planets as per its placement.
D.PLANETARY PERIODS : The fourth constituent of the system is
planetary periods. Though
various types of planetary periods for specific combinations in a
nativity are mentioned in
classical texts, we will here consider only Vimshotari dasa which is
universally applicable for
all sets of combinations in a nativity. Based on the longitudes of the
Moon in the natal charts, we calculate the operational major period of a particular planet and
the balance period yet to
be operational.The planets as per their strength in a horoscope give
results of the
significations/houses ruled by them in their own sub periods.
