Vedic astrology is an
amazingly accurate system of astrology that literally
gives you an account of your life’s plan and the purpose
of your soul being here. It deals less with personality
traits and more with the Karma or life’s lessons and
Dharma or life’s purpose. I can also ascertain what your
natural talents and abilities are and how you best
prosper in this life.
What would we do without
the Sun? There would be no life. Without the Moon, we
would all burn up because the moon does not have its own
light; it reflects the light of the Sun. They work
together. Each planet has influence on our lives.
In Astrology the influence of the planets is SYMBOLIC.
Sun rules the soul, the father, the person you express
to the world.
The Moon rules the
mother, the emotional body and hidden self.
Mercury is the Messenger. It rules communication skills
Venus rules love, the wife and the creative arts.
Jupiter rules law, spirituality, education, children and
Saturn rules loss and death,
transitions and sudden change.
Mars rules wars and conflicts, sports and physical
The time of your birth is very important because the
time rules your ascendant which is the first house and
then the planets fall into the different houses which
also symbolically rule
different aspects of your life.
All together a ‘seer” can see and determine much of the
karma of a person or the life's lessons and the dharma
of a person or life's purpose. This is a very brief
explanation of astrology.
Western astrology is in my opinion not nearly as
accurate as Eastern and you may have a different sign in
Eastern Astrology. For example August 15th-September
15th is Leo and so on.
Here is a great example:
I was invited by my friend Ruta to a bridal shower and
everyone started talking about what sign they were.
There were only women there with the exception of one
young man. He said he was a Scorpio. I asked him, "When
were you born?”
He said, "I was born on November 8th"
I said, "Well, in Vedic Astrology you would be a Libra
and you look like a Libra to me. Your features are very
symmetrical . . . just like Audrey Hepburn."
He looked shocked when I said that and said to my
friend Ruta, "Did you tell her?"
Ruta said laughing, "I didn't tell her anything!"
I said, "Tell me what?"
Ruta said, "Bea, he just sold his first script to
DreamWorks and it's called "Why Can't I Be Audrey
Ryan Murphy was the young man's name and he is the
creator of the hit show Nip/Tuck!!
