We usually consider astrology when we look for horoscopes and predictions. However, the roots of Vedic astrology are much deeper than we think. The astrology is connected to the earth, sky, planets, stars, constellations, universal energy, omens, and entire cosmos.
Role of Astrology in Hindu mythology
Vedic Astrology has been a part of our lives from ancient times. We can see the description of astrology in our epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata.
It is mentioned in these epics that the creation of the universe is based on five elements that are Fire, Air, Water, Earth and Ether (Aakash). And these elements merged with divinity resulted in creation of human beings. These elements are one of the most important bases of astrological evaluations and calculations.
Divinity in Astrology
Vedic Astrology includes Horoscope, Nadi Astrology, Palmistry, Vastu, etc. Moon, Sun, and planets represent some gods and their story helps astrology to provide the most accurate predictions based on the understanding of their inherent nature.
Astrology uses the heavenly objects that leave great influence on the fate of human life. According to science, the moon is the most accurate natural satellite. However, according to astrology, it denotes a planet that is indicating influences in our lives and leaves its direct impact on us. Therefore, it helps in astrological evaluation of all kinds.
Event Predictions of Astrology
Astrology has the capability of giving accurate predictions of auspicious and inauspicious events. It has been proven that these predictions have been accurate several times in history. The role of the divinity could be know by the fact that the astrologer is called daivagya and what we call divine is the indication of Deva or God. An astrologer has to see through the transcendental time and utilize the divinity inside human, animal and inanimate objects to understand the world at present and to predict past and future it will have.
- In Mahabharata epic, when Pandavas realized that Karna was their actual half-brother that they killed in the battle, Yudhisthara became angry at his mother Kunti that she did not tell him such a big secret. At that time, he cursed her that any lady will never be able to hold any other secret in the future.
- After the Mahabharata war, Gandhari was sad after seeing the end of her bloodline and cursed Lord Krishna that no kith or kin will be there at the time of his death. Lord Krishna accepted the curse. And according to the curse, Kauravas’ bloodline ended in war and Krishna died when there was no one left to continue the future bloodline.
This role of curses is also studied and predicted by an astrologer in a horoscope and these are not just cursed but the prediction based on the actions of the person.
Legendary author Veda Vyasa has listed some of the most amazing predictions of today that have come true. We can see these descriptions in Chapter 12 Verse 2 of Srimad Bhagavat Geeta.
- Srimad Bhagavat Geeta – 12.2.1: Age of kali will have a powerful influence on the world and Religion, cleanliness, truthfulness, tolerance, duration of life, mercy, memory, and physical strength will slowly diminish with time.
- Srimad Bhagavat Geeta – 12.2.2: Wealth will represent good birth, fine qualities and proper behavior of human beings. Justice and law will be applicable merely based on power and wealth.
