System of Astrology
Jyotisha (Vedic), the Hindu system of Astrology, is based on the movement of planets with respect to stars and it includes zodiac signs as well. According to it, there are twenty-seven constellations (Nakshatras) made up of twelve zodiac signs (Rashis), nine planets (Ghrahas) and twelve Houses (Bhavas). These various elements of Jyotisha Shastra represent different aspects of human life.
Principal of Astrology
The basic premise of the Jyotisha Shastra is that all things are linked. Our Karma (fortune) is determined by a destined cosmic design.
Kundali (Astrological chart), shows our karma. The reason that each of us inherits a unique natal chart is that the higher self-selects a particular astrological imprint, to experience certain events, and learn specific lessons. From this, evolution occurs by processing karmic situations for optimal benefit. Situations, people, and events in our life catalyze karmic growth, but karma lies within oneself, inside the soul.
