Secrets of Vedic Astrology
The astronomical calculations of the ecliptic and the constellations in the ancient period are deformed as the Vedic astrology. It states that the events of a person’s life is dependent upon three factors vithi (unique astrological position at birth), mathi (auspicious time) and gathi (seasons).
It is said that these factors could determine the stronger period of a person where his mental strength, psychic energy, and the bioenergy will be enhanced. So these periods are considered as the virtuous time of a person. As the mental power is higher at these periods, the person could move forward towards his goals very strongly. It is also the time where the treatment becomes more effective because of the increase in the bioenergy of person.
The skill of an astrologer is to determine such periods in the person’s life precisely and his job ends here, and the rest of the predictions are only a matter of coincidence that would help the astrologer to make a living.
This pseudoscience does not support empirically and cannot be proved under pure scientific basis. So the scientists did not accept it as the science in the modern world.
The tests conducted in the future predictions of the psychic readings yielded only the negative results and were mere coincidences that could not be validated.
It is known that the gravitational force of moon could uniformly influence the behavior of the living beings rather than uniquely in accordance with its relative position with the sun that which is responsible for the changes in its phases. And they argue that such force is responsible for the unique events of the person’s life. Apart from the meager gravitational and electromagnetic force, the other forces from the planets that uniquely influence the energy and the future events of the person are not determined.
In Vedic astrology, the future predictions are only the evaluations of the astrological positions and its unique influence on the persons that were been evaluated for 1000 years and determined by its unique characteristics, so that it could only be subjected to the coincidences.
The astrology relies upon the secret that the life is predestined which is supported by the major religions. But the philosophers mention the life as the combination of both – the free will and predestination. It is like the two faces of the coin when seen from the dual perspective and it is the commonly subjected to the world population excluding the enlightened personalities.(Read also How Numerology Readings Influence Your Mind?)
Swami Vivekananda mentioned it as “the will is not free – it is the phenomenon bound by the cause and effect – but there is something behind the will which is free.”
