Introduction:
 harat is the sacred Karma Bhoomiand Punya Bhoomi endowed withthe majestic Himalayas, VindhyaRange of mountains, forests likeNaimisaranya, Dandakaranya and otherplaces, and holy rivers like Ganga,Yamuna, Narmada, Godavari, Krishna andKaveri flowing through the length andbreadth of the country. Brahmarishis andMaharishis born in this land have handeddown an invaluable legacy and wisdomthrough various classical texts. The Vedasare the basis for our Sanatana Dharma.These Vedas were identified by Sri VedaVyasa and passed on to his disciples. Thereare six Angaas (limbs) to this divineknowledge. Jyotisha Shastra is one of them. The traditional Vidyaas of ourcountry are classified as 18.
 
For those who cannot read the Vedas, theItihasas and Puranas are a boon.
SrimadRamayana
is the
 Adi
 
Kaavya
, the firsttreatise authored by sage
Valmiki
as per theinstructions of the creator under theguidance of 
Sage
 
Narada
. The life of 
Sri
B
 
Rama
, the
Maryaada
 
Purushottama
, is vividly described in this treatise.There are plenty of references to
 Jyotisha
 
Shastra
in
Ramayana
. Ramayana consists of sevenkandas (chapters). In every kanda we find references to Planets, Muhurthas, Vaastu and avariety of other information useful in the day-to-day life. I will narrate a few of them here asthey come to my mind from the first six chapters.
1)
 
Baala Kaanda
 In the first chapter
Balakanda, we have the reference to the birth of 
Sri Rama
and his threebrothers. Here
Valmiki
narrated thus:
“After 12 months, queen Kousalya gave birth to Sri Rama in the month of Chaitra on
Shukla Navamiday. Kousalya delivered Sri Rama, the Universal God, in Punarvasu star in
“Karkata Lagna” with
 Jupiter (exalted) with Moon, Sun, Mars, Venus and Saturn also being exalted. Bharatha was born inthe star Pushyami in Meena Lagna. The twins Laxmana and Shatrughna were born in the star
 Aslesha in Karkata Lagna on the next day”.
 
 
The practitioners of astrology can draw the charts and have an in-depth study.The marriage of Sri Rama and his brothers was performed in
Uttara Phalguni
star. King
 Janaka
tells the sages
Vasistha
and
Viswamitra
as follows:
“Uttara Phalguni
star is tomorrow. This star is proclaimed as very auspicious for marriage by the
learned”.
 Marrying four children of the same parentage in the same Lagna and at the same venue isprohibited. That being so, how the marriage of Sri Rama and his three brothers on the sameday justified?Though the father is the same person, the mothers are different. So the above prohibitoryrule did not apply in the case of 
Rama
and
Bharatha
. But Laxmana and Shatrughna had thesame mother. In this case though the Lagna is same, the Navamsa Lagna is different. Hencethis is acceptable. This clarification is available in the commentaries on Ramayana whichhave discussed these aspects elaborately with reference to other connected texts.
2) Ayodhya Kaanda
 
In the second chapter
Ayodhya Kanda we find references to utpata-karaka planetarycombinations, references to dreams and their effect, the importance of Vaastu Shastra etc.In connection with the coronation of 
Sri
 
Rama
, King
Dasaratha
informs sage
Vasistha
asfollows:
“Tomorrow will be Pushyami star, very auspicious for the coronation of Sri Rama as the
prince.
Please make arrangements for same.”
 
After the coronation of 
Sri Rama
was announced,
Dasaratha
sends word to
Sri
 
Rama
. When
Sri
 
Rama
comes, he informs him as follows:
