Most often, Vedic astrology is used to draw up the Indian horoscope - one of the most ancient on earth (its age is more than 5,000 years). There is an opinion that Indian or Vedic astrology (Jyotish or Jyotisha, from Skt. Jyot "," light ", and isha -" deity ".) Appeared more than 5,000 years ago, and represents a divine revelation, the highest knowledge revealed by the rishis ( great sage yogis) during meditation This area of knowledge is inextricably linked with the Vedic architecture (Vastu-Shastra or Sthapatya-Veda) and the Vedic science of healing (Ayurveda).
The emergence of astrological science in ancient times is confirmed by the mention of astrological calculations in the Rig Veda (Skt. "Veda of hymns", one of the oldest texts in the world, a monument of Indian literature). For example, the vernal equinox for 2500 BC. and some dates for 4000 and 6000. In addition, the text contains a list of nakshatras (signs of the lunar zodiac), planets (represented in the form of a horse with seven heads and a rider-Sun), etc.
However, modern scientists do not agree with this point of view, although they have not yet come to a consensus as to when exactly Jyotish arose. Some believe that the mentioned science appeared in the 5th - 4th centuries. BC e. (it was then that the famous ancient Indian astrologer and astronomer Lagadha wrote down the Vedanga-jyotisha, containing the calculations of the motion of the moon and the sun). Others believe that Indian astronomy and astrology can be divided into several periods, the most ancient of which (Vedic) dates back to 1000-400 AD. There is also an opinion that the system of astrological calculations is based on Hellenistic astrology (which, in turn, is based on Babylonian astrology), which penetrated India at the beginning of the 2nd century.

By compiling a horoscope, an Indian astrologer can predict not only the fate of a person himself, but, for example, the sex of his future children. According to Indian astrologers, grahas are subdivided into masculine (Mars, Jupiter), feminine (Venus and the Moon), and "average" - Mercury and Saturn. Therefore, if, for example, the Moon is in the 5th house (called Putra - "Son" and symbolizing children) - most likely, a daughter will be born, if this house falls under the influence of Mars, Jupiter and Mercury - there is a high probability that a boy will be born ...
In the Indian horoscope, you can find information about when a person should get married. It is also possible to choose the most suitable partner. Yes, there is such information. Moreover, it can be supplemented with some clarifications. For example, a woman can find out which of the cardinal points (north, south, west, etc.) relative to her place of birth is the most favorable place of birth for her future spouse. At the same time, it is sometimes not the woman's birthday that is taken as the starting point, but the day on which her first menstruation began. Drawing up marriage horoscopes, according to Indians, is of paramount importance, since it is such a horoscope that allows you to choose the best option for marriage. It is horoscopes of this kind that allow not only to avoid conflict in the family due to a mismatch of temperaments, but also to minimize the possibility for a woman to remain a widow at a young age (this circumstance was very significant in those days when traditions assumed the self-immolation of widows).
When drawing up a horoscope, Indian and European astrologers take into account the influence of the same planets and mathematical points (for example, the ascendant and lunar nodes). This is not entirely true. Firstly, not all Jyotish schools take into account trans-Saturnian planets, explaining their position by the fact that astrology is essentially a "science of light", therefore, the planets of the solar system visible to the eye fell into its field of view (Surya or Ravi - the Sun, Chandra - the Moon, Buddha - Mercury, Shukra - Venus, Kuja - Mars, Guru - Jupiter, Shani - Saturn), to which Uranus, Neptune and Pluto do not belong.
Secondly, in addition to the lunar nodes known to European astrologers (called Rahu and Ketu, classified as chhaya grahi - "shadow planets", and appearing, according to Indian astrologers, during solar and lunar eclipses), 11 upa grah (called Dhuma, Vayatipat, Parivesha, Chapa, Upa-ketu, Gulika, etc.) - "sub-planets" or "satellites". They have no physical manifestation, but, according to Indian astrologers, they have a rather tangible effect on people.
Thirdly, the ascendant (that is, the degree of the Zodiac at which the rising point falls at the moment of birth), called "lagna" in the Indian horoscope is not one, as in the European horoscope - there are 10 more points of reference or "special ascendants". For example, Chandra-lagna - "Moon as an ascendant", allows you to determine how the qualities of a person's mind will manifest themselves in various life circumstances. Ravi-lagna - "Sun of birth", makes it possible to reveal the qualities of his soul. Arudha Lagna will help you find out how the individual will be perceived by the world, and what position in society he will take. Hora Lagna is important when analyzing a person's ability to accumulate wealth, etc.
In the Indian horoscope, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are not counted. In some schools of Jyotish, the planets located beyond Saturn are considered (Uranus is called Indra, Neptune is Varuna, Pluto is called Yama). But at the same time, it is believed that their influence is very weak (due to the great distance from the Earth), therefore the said planets are considered in the same row with the upa-grahas (shadow planets), and attention is paid to them only after the main horoscope is drawn up, and remains just to clarify some of the nuances.
In the Indian horoscope, the planets are divided into "good" and "evil". Indian astrologers believe that the nature of the planets is really different. Venus and Jupiter are considered beneficial, Mars, Saturn, Rahu, Ketu are considered harmful (special rituals are performed to reduce their influence). Sometimes the Sun is also ranked among the harmful planets, although most Indian astrologers call it "cruel". Moon and Mercury are of a dual nature. Naturally good, they periodically become evil (the Moon - during the waning period, Mercury - when associated with evil planets). However, much depends on the spiritual level of a person. For example, Rahu (the patroness of the criminal world and cruelty, fear and madness) at a high level is in charge of mystical abilities, psychotherapy, pharmaceuticals and helps to determine in which areas a person should improve in this incarnation. Ketu, at a low level patronizing scandals, poisoning, disasters, ruin and madness, at a high level bestows the ability to literary work, philosophy, deep knowledge of the true nature of things, yogic practices and symbolizes liberation from the wheel of Samsara (Moksha).
The content of the horoscope can be influenced by the behavior of the customer. It really is. An Indian astrologer (especially when drawing up a horary map - from the Latin hora - "hour", which allows you to give an accurate answer to the question posed, as well as obtain information about the cause of the problem) can take as a starting point (lagna) the word pronounced by the customer (shabda -lagna), the part of the body touched by the client (nama-lagna). In addition, the starting point can be taken as the number named by the client at the request of the astrologer, or the number obtained as a result of the numerological analysis of the first letter of the name or the full name of the customer (nama-lagna).
If several planets in the horoscope are in a negative position, the person is likely to die. No, Indian astrologers believe that such an outcome is possible only when all 9 planets in a person's horoscope are in a "bad" position. If at least one or two planets are in a "good" position, you can correct the situation by using various methods of neutralizing the negative influence of the planets. The most commonly used methods are: fire ceremony (yagya), sacrifices (anushthana), worship (upasana). In the most difficult cases, one should not turn to the planets, but to the god Shiva, who, according to the Indians, has much more power than all the planets put together, and can help even in a seemingly insoluble situation.
When some planet in the horoscope is in a "bad" position, it is enough to read the mantra - and the negative influence will be neutralized. Firstly, according to Indian astrologers, in some cases a mantra that harmonizes the influence of the planet (there is a special mantra for each planet) will not have the desired effect. Then the specialist can recommend a mantra that activates the positive influence of another planet, which, firstly, is in a "good" position, and secondly, is "friendly" to a celestial object in a "bad" position. According to Indian astrologers, the mentioned ritual will help to indirectly influence the planet in a "bad" position and, thus, minimize its negative impact on humans.
Secondly, the concept of upasana is not limited to the recitation of mantras. This may be supplemented by wearing an amulet stone that can enhance or harmonize the effect of a particular planet (for the Sun - ruby, for the Moon - pearls, for Rahu - hessonite and garnet, for Jupiter - a yellow stone (topaz or sapphire), etc.) ... Moreover, the choice of stones also depends on how exactly this or that planet is located in the horoscope. For example, the stone of Mars is red coral, but in the case when this planet is in the same house with the Moon, it is recommended to wear white coral. If you need to activate and harmonize all the planets at once, you can use navaratna ("nine treasures") - a necklace that combines the stones of all 9 planets.
It should be remembered that the amulet stone must be properly prepared. On a certain day of the week, the brahmin (or the future owner) conducts prana pratishtha - a special rite of consecration of the stone, which consists in inscribing a yantra (a sacred image in the center of which a stone is placed), reciting the mantra of the planet and then washing the stone in certain substances (milk, honey, water and etc.). Another prerequisite is that the amulet stone must be chosen natural, and properly set (recommendations on which metal the amulet stone should be mounted in and how exactly it should be worn can be obtained from the astrologer who made the horoscope).
In addition, a person can in other ways harmonize the influence of the planets on his life. According to Indian astrologers, the planets affect all areas of human life. Therefore, for example, in an effort to reduce the negative influence of Venus, you need to dress in white clothes on Fridays (the color of Venus), attend concerts, inviting friends and acquaintances with you, make donations to artists and artists (Venus is the patroness of art). And to harmonize the impact of Mars, you need to wear red, especially on Tuesdays (Mars day), perform various exercises, read the scriptures, dedicating this activity to Mars, and donate to the military, soldiers, orphans.
If demonic stars are strong in a person's horoscope, his fate will be full of losses and misfortunes. In Jyotish, the stars that affect people are divided into 3 types: divine (deva-loka, sattva-guna), demonic (adho-loka, tama-guna), mixed or medium (manushya-loka, raja-guna). According to Vedic astrologers, the birth of a person under one star or another is due to his karmic merits or sins. Divine stars (Ashvini, Mrigashira, Punarvasu, etc.) give the opportunity for self-improvement, and the subordination of emotions and intellect to the spirit. The "mixed" stars (Bharani, Rohini, Ardra, etc.) give a person the opportunity to choose the path of life at his own discretion. A person born under a demonic star (Criticism, Ashlesha, Magha, etc.) must work off negative karma, and therefore is really doomed to suffering and deprivation. However, in the process of overcoming obstacles, he can comprehend the cause of suffering and find a way to self-improvement. At the same time, a person who is under the beneficial influence of Deva Loka sometimes wallows in idleness, forgetting about spiritual development and self-knowledge. In addition, you should remember about the rest of the natal chart. For example, if in the horoscope of a person born under the influence of the divine star Ashvini, the Sun is aspected by Mars - he will be cruel, Saturn will experience poverty.
The Indian zodiac horoscope is supplemented with information about tattvas - elements corresponding to each sign of the zodiac (Aries corresponds to tattva "oil", Gemini - "clay", Libra - "steam", Sagittarius - "grass", etc.). In Jyotish, there really is a concept of tattwas (Skt. "Truth", "principle", "essence") - the primary elements of being, the constituent parts of the Universe. There are 36 tattwas, 5 of which (shuddha-tattvas or "pure tattvas") belong to the sphere of spiritual energy (for example, pure consciousness - Shiva-tattva), 7 (shuddhashuddha-tattvas or "pure-impure tattvas") characterize the sphere of spiritual magnetic forces (for example, magical energy - maya-tattva). The remaining 24 (ashuddha-tattvas or "impure tattvas") correspond to the sphere of energies of the physical and astral planes. However, it should be borne in mind that only 5 tattwas are compared with the signs of the horoscope, and not with the signs of the zodiac, but with nakshatras (for example, Ashvini corresponds to the tattwa of the earth, Ardra is the tattwa of water, Uttara is the tattwa of fire, Mulle is the tattwa of air, Dhanishtha is the tattwa of the ether ). In addition, according to Indian astrologers, the same tattwas affect the time intervals, changing every 24 minutes (i.e. a full cycle lasts 2 hours). Moreover, each tattwa has its own color and planet-ruler (akasha-tattva or ether is black, the ruler is Saturn; vayu-tattva or air is blue and green, the rulers are the Moon and Mercury, etc.). "tattvic" horoscope "oil", "clay", "grass", "steam", "gold", "stone", etc. do not appear in the list of tattvas.
Anyone can turn to an Indian astrologer and get a very accurate horoscope. According to experts, Indian astrology really differs from European astrology in greater accuracy in determining the location of the planets during the birth of a person, has wider possibilities for making predictions (various schemes for reading a horoscope allow an Indian astrologer to give the fullest possible description of both the personal aspects of the customer and all of his manifestations in public life, the spiritual sphere, etc.).
However, it should be remembered that Jyotish has a serious philosophical base, which is an integral part of the life of every inhabitant of India. This state of affairs has a very beneficial effect on the level of understanding and acceptance of the astrologer's advice by the Indians. While the above-mentioned philosophical system may be completely unknown to the inhabitants of other countries, therefore, some of the information contained in the horoscope, and many of the advice of an Indian astrologer are often either not at all understood and not accepted, or misinterpreted by people living in Europe, America, Russia.
Drawing up a horoscope is always associated with interference in a person's karma. According to Indian astrologers, this is indeed the case.And the more denial and misunderstanding on the part of the customer, the more painful for the astrologer the consequences of such contact. Therefore, firstly, the Indian astrologer will give advice on correcting karmic circumstances only if he sees that the client can understand the essence of the problem and is ready to do everything to correct the situation. The same rule works, for example, in the case when the horoscope foreshadows the imminent death of the customer - the astrologer will report this only on the condition that the person is ready to correctly (calmly, with faith in the subsequent incarnation) perceive this kind of information. Secondly, there are methods of clearing the negative consequences of contact with the karma of the person for whom the horoscope was drawn up. Indian astrologers perform sadhana (spiritual practices), japa (recitation of mantras, in particular the Gayatri mantra), etc.
