Astrology is a holistic science, focusing not only on ‘prediction’ or ‘diagnosis’ but also on treatment with a helpful attitude in everyday life.
Sciences such as Ayurveda and Yoga, Meditation practices and methods work well with astrology.
Bearing in mind that physical well-being is a by-product of spiritual well-being, we also have in mind the importance and benefits of these.
An astrological chart shows a picture of effects where we are called to come into contact in this life.
A very detailed analysis of it can show us everything we will come in contact with, its season and how intense it will be.
Some things do not change in this life, some change, and some change with lots of work.
We can not stop a rain and a bad weather, but if we have to leave our house at that period we make sure to equip ourselves with the necessary, for example an umbrella and a waterproof, arm coat.
A complete and essential spiritual practice will give us a similar approach, will ‘equip’ us with the necessary and useful.
The diseases that we will experience in the body and mind are a result of situations that exist within us, either from the recent or distant past, so knowing their form, in their time we will be able to be more ‘equipped’ in their appearance in our lives.
The superior and beneficial healing of the soul is an essential spiritual practice where it brings light to our darkest parts, and gives the supplies to work on them.
Observing a harmful effect from some planets we take care to act according our benefit, or also a weakness from some beneficial planets on our chart we take care to strengthen them.
Through the various ways in which this is done, a well-known approach today is the use of certain gemstones, wearing them in their appropriate material (gold or silver), and on the approriate day of the week.
The days of the week are dedicated to each one of the seven planets used by Vedic astrology, such as Monday on the Moon (pearl), Tuesday on Mars (coral), Wednesday on Mercury (emerald), Thursday on Jupiter (yellow sapphire), Friday in Aphrodite (diamond) and Sunday in the Sun (ruby).
There are various approaches to empowering a planet, to name a few are the practice in certain mantras related to each planet, in the corresponding colors that represent them, in similar fasts and our correct acts where they take place in their respective days, as well as certain ceremonies called ‘pujas’.
Having a useful daily life through the knowledge offered by Vedic astrology, both physically and spiritually, we can be ‘equipped’ with very powerful and useful ‘tools’ for our lives.
Changing a deeply harmful habit is something that takes a lot of work, we would say a lifetime, but every step towards this liberation is only for our benefit.
Thus the coexistence of a holistic approach to Vedic science that we call Jyotish, through an astrological chart, healing from the art of Ayurveda, practices through Yoga, also every spiritual path, is a powerful ‘recipe’ in to work on our being, shaping in into something more and more subtle and beautiful.
