Introduction to Indian Astrology
The science of Astrology has great antiquity behind it. Vedas which are said to be the oldest religious literature available has references to this science. Astrology has great importance attached to it as "Vedanga Jyothisha". That means "Jyothisha or Astrology" is one of the limbs of the "Vedas" (1500 B.C.). Hindus were the original masters who had the thorough knowledge of astronomy and many rituals and religious rites were related to the position of planets and their motions. It was expected of all those who wanted to understand Vedas, to be well versed with the knowledge of astronomy and astrology. The earliest astronomical works such as Surya Siddanta and Vedanga Jyothisha are more then five thousand years old. Long before Kepler, Copernicus, Brahe, Galilio and other galaxy of astronomers were born, the Hindu sages had already gained much knowledge on the stellar or planetary universe.
Vedas are the oldest writings of the World's religious literature and in them one could see the mention of Vedanga Jyothisha. In other words there are several verses devoted to explain the astronomical knowledge in Rig-Veda and Atharvana Veda.
The early Siddantas are Hindu astronomical works which give us the period of Mahayuga which comprises of Kritha, Thretha, Dwapara and Kali Yugas. It has been estimated that Mahayuga comprises of 43,20,000 (Four Million, Three hundred and twenty thousand years) and the age of our solar system is 1972,949,099 (One thousand nine hundred seventy two million and nine hundred and forty-nine thousand ninety nine years) which will be approximately 2,000 million years. This figure has been tallied with the figures given by Sir James Joans based on geological and astronomical study. It is beyond our imagination how the Hindu Sages could know these facts without the scientific instruments available to the modern scientists.
Jyothisha has been divided into three main branches of study. 1. Siddanta, 2. Samhita and 3. Hora. Siddantas are those which devote to astronomical study of celestial bodies. Samhitas deal with mundane astrology, earth quakes, floods, volcanic eruptions, rainfall, weather conditions economic conditions and effects of sunspots. The next and the very important branch is the Phalitha Jyothisha branch which concentrates on the system of predictions. And this branch has six sub-divisions, namely, Jathaka, Gola, Prasna, Nimitta, Muhurta and Ganitha. In Palitha Jyothisha (predictive system) we have three important schools. They are Parashari, Jaimini and Thajaka. Universally applicable school of predictive system is that of Parashari.
Apart from these schools of planetary interpretations, we have what we can call as Nadi system which gives pen pictures of life and destiny patterns of people born at 12,24,48 seconds intervals. These have been written on palm leaves. Only very few experts can read and understand these, but the results and predictions are found to be amazingly accurate. Nadi, Guru, Shukra, Chandra, Budha, Suka, Narada, Markandeya, Satya Nadis are found in the oriental manuscript's library at Madras (India).
Zodiac and Planets
The Hindu Predictive zodiac consists of 27 constellations, in 12 lunar mansions. The movements of two luminaries Sun and Moon, five major planets (Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Venus and Mercury) and the two nodal points of the Moon i.e., Rahu and Ketu are considered and their positions are marked. The extra Saturnine planets like Pluto, Neptune and Uranus are not recognised by the

Hindus. Above all, Moon is taken as very important planet for predictions though it is satellite of earth. The Moon, at the time of birth is found in a particular position or in a particular star and it will be taken as the star of the person born. This star will be used for finding out the major and sub-periods of the person in his life. The transitory influences of planets in relation to the natal Moon are also studied.
Comparison with Western Astrology
When we compare the Hindu Astrology with that of the Western Astrology there are certain general principles found in both the systems. Ownership of houses, exaltation, debilitation, characteristics of planets and 12 aspects of human life are same. In certain other aspects they differ from each other. For example the square opposition aspects are bad and trine and sextile aspects are always good in Western Astrology. Where as in the Hindu system good and bad aspects are not based on the types of aspects, but by the nature of the planets involved in the aspects. Ashtakavarga system, Shadvarga charts, Shadbala assessment and Yogavali are not found in the Western System. The Hindu Science of Astrology also gives certain remedial measures to overcome mental, moral and physical sufferings by means of medicinal roots, mantras and yoga practices and Gemstones. Though Hindu Astrology deals with all the aspects of human life indicating materialistic success and failures, it is deeply rooted in philosophy. The Karmic theory which is akin to the Newton's third law of motion (i.e., action and reaction are equal and opposite), is also applied in the Hindu Astrology. That is why Markandeya Rishi gives this verse for Astrologers to write in the beginning of the horoscope which they cast.
The above verse in Sanskrit language means: For the welfare of the mother and the child For the growth of the family happiness To follow the ancient virtuous practices The horoscope is written

Astrology is the science of the influence of stars on people and life on earth. It tells us how man, both as a social being and as an individual, thinks and acts under the influence of these heavenly bodies. And as such, it is a study of the relation between heavenly bodies and earthly events. It is the science of the relationship between man and the heavens based on the assumption that there is a cosmic order, that everything in the cosmos has an assigned place. Just as the Greek philosophers articulated that only change is constant, we are witness to change of seasons, rhythmic pattern of life in nautre, natural calamities and weather fluctuations. These changes are a direct result of the relations between earth and heaven. Lives of men are continuously influenced by this flux. Out of this flux emerges an endeavour to predict our future and to prepare a guide for our lives. This endeavour is a unique mix of science and metaphysics. Thus, the basic foundation of Astrology is the belief that there is an intelligible cosmic order, that man is the microcosm linked for ever to the macrocosm of the universe. In this way Astrology becomes a visual map of the universe providing road signs to the otherwise unpredictable nature of man. Astrology is a scientific attempt to unravel the mysteries of the universe. It is an attempt to comprehend and apply the language of the heavenly bodies to suit the purposes of man. These heavenly bodies are mapped in the form of a horoscope. Changes in their positions, determined by mathematical and astronomical calculations, influence the happenings on earth. At another level, Astrology is a process of divination. It is an attempt to utilise the link between man and the cosmos to his advantage. And Astrology at once becomes an interpretation, prediction and a subliminal plea by man, his society and culture to throw light on their destinies. As a result, billions rely on the power and accuracy of Astrology to predict even mundane events on the assumption that the celestial bodies we call the planets, stars and their constellations influence and indicate changes on earth. In the West, Astrology is considered more of a philosophy that helps explain life in new perspectives rather than as a type of mysticism that helps predict life's events. It mostly discusses not what the planets do to men and their socieities but interprets actions and events based on planetary positions.
How did man come to believe that the Sun, Moon and the planets affect our lives and characters, productivity of our land, the plentifulness of our crops. How do they cause rain and drought and bring joy and sorrow? It is obvious that man, as an instinctive star-gazer, must have realised the importance of the heavens at the dawn of civilization itself. As soon as he was capable of intelligent thought, he would have realised that the sun provided warmth, sheltered him from the fears of darkness and protected life. He would have seen the moon waxing and waning, the seas swelling and the tides receding. Historians note that the earliest evidence of Astrological practices date back to about 15,000 BC when settled agricultural practices were evolving. Farmers for one realise the difference between seasons. As a hunter-gatherer, man took help of the Sun, Moon and the stars for guidance on his long and tortuous journeys in search of food and shelter. But at the dawn of settled agriculture his long meanderings for food ended. His flights of fanciful enquiries into nature would carry him to the same stars that stood him in good stead in meaner days. From the comfort of his home he was able to realise a greater destiny for himself in the stars. Stars became for him a guide on his life, a beacon that egged him on and predicted his life's events. They acquired an aura that led him to spiritual destinations. Man's reverence for the magical, strange moving lights in the sky, regarded as powerful agents for either famine or plenty must have led to some of the earliest recordings of the astronomical phenomina like eclipses and planetary movements.
