Overview for Astrology in Vedas
There is a misconception in some quarters â€˜that the holy Vedas recognize only astronomy and not astrology. This misconception has been very ably removed by the author by references to the chapters and verses from the Vedas. For the first time in the history of the astrological literature it has been shown on the basis of the recognized principles of spirituality why a particular planet is exalted in a particular nakshatra of a specific sign of the zodiac. Maharshi Parashar-the father of Indian astrology has laid down that the 7th house of the horoscope being 12th from the 8th denotes the negation of the traits of the 8th house. Based on this principle the 12th house becomes the house of the denial of the traits of the 1st house i.e. the body-physical, emotional and intellectual. The author has shown by references to the Upanishadas that this principle of Maharshi Parashar is spiritually oriented, for moksha in religion too is the denial of all body consciousness. The able author has shown the astrological significances of the names of various planets etc. and thereby established an intimate relation between the Vedas and the astrological science. A study of this book will surely add to not only your astrological but also to your spiritual knowledge.
