A Complete Approach – Mind, Body and Spirit

Vedic Medical Astrology is a branch of Vedic Astrology and is a science that demands knowledge of both Astrology and Medicine. It takes years of acquiring astrological and medical expertise including a complete understanding of anatomy and physiology to qualify as a medical astrologer. As an Ayurvedic physician, I use the combination these two sciences to accurately understand diseases and advise clients on the best procedures for regaining health.

The Vedic horoscope is drawn by the Vedic Medical Astrologer, based on time, place, and date of birth of the concerned person and then appropriate advice is given to enliven all areas of their lives.

The “Ayur-Jyoti” technique uses Vedic astrology to determine potential weak spots. You may be able to determine a tendency toward various types of illnesses, and one can usually see periods of stress or lowered vitality when one could develop health problems. Analyzing the planetary combinations and placements in a natal or progressed chart, a medical astrologer can ascertain likely psychological or physical weaknesses that may be causing disease. The medical astrologer then can advise the client on the appropriate tests necessary to verify the astrological speculations. After a physician’s tests have confirmed the diagnosis, the medical astrologer can outline the best diet, nutritional supplements & therapeutic lifestyle changes for the individual to optimize their health and well-being.

Introduction to Vedic Astrology:

Vedic Astrology,or Jyotish, originated from The Vedas (Vedic Scriptures) dating back over 6,000 years. The world’s most ancient scriptures give evidence of a culture rich in the arts, philosophy, medicine, religion, and science. Jyotish was first mentioned in the Rig Veda, and references were also made in the classical Indian epics, the Ramayana, the Mahabharata, and the classic Bhagavad-Gita.

The Vedas are considered by many to be the most vast and complete system of knowledge known to mankind, and Jyotish is revered as one of the most important limbs of the Vedas. Jyotish, a Sanskrit word, translates to Divine Light. It is the eye of divine knowledge, which is omnipresent, omnipotent, pure, supreme, and exalted.

Jyotish, is believed to have been conceived by the ancient sages in higher states of consciousness, which allowed them to cognize life beyond time and space, beyond past, present and future. In this super-conscious state, they recognized the energetic rays of the planets as reflectors or transmitters of light energy. These solar and planetary radio-like waves, sent out at various angles, were seen to bear influence on everything animate and inanimate, affecting humans on both biological and psychological levels. It is said that the sages observed and experimented with their observations in order to codify into rules of astronomical calculations, which ultimately became the laws by which Jyotish is practiced.

The astronomical genius demonstrated by the Vedic Seers is suggested by the fact that these ancient astronomers conceived of cosmological issues that have remained consistent with the enduring discoveries of science to the present day. It is interesting to note that, whereas medieval Europe still believed that the earth was stationary, Vedic astronomers of antiquity founded a system which stated that the apparent rising and setting of the planets and the stars were due to the movement of the earth.

The Vedas are a composite or holistic knowledge, integrating every part or branch of knowledge to the whole. All the parts are viewed in context of Vedic philosophy such that the sciences are consistent and reinforce the orientation of artistic expression; medicine is consistent with religion and so forth. This integrated philosophical orientation to life opposes the long popular scientific view embraced by Western culture that has compartmentalized life in an ever-shifting focus or preoccupation with one segment or another. This fragmented approach to life results in the various disciplines of knowledge being in conflict with one another, such that the artist is seen at odds with the scientist, religion, and philosophy are inconsistent with each other, science is at war with religion, and so on.

For the individual, awareness of the inter-relatedness of all phenomena allows one to perceive one’s own life in the context of the greater whole, leading to the Vedic concept of karma. It is said that no thought, word or deed escapes the ultimate, inescapable justice of the universe, known simply as karma. The understanding of the law of cause and effect, or karma, is expressed in scientific law as follows: for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. In various religious and spiritual texts, it is suggested in proverbs like,” As you sow, so shall you reap”, or implied in sayings like, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” But nowhere is the law of karma more fundamental as a philosophy of life than in the Vedic literature.

The concept of karma speaks to your responsibility for yourself in the most profound terms. You could say that the horoscope offers a means for assessing ones karmic path in order to become more conscious, or self aware, and, as a consequence, more actively responsible for your actions.

A child is born on a given day and that hour when the celestial rays are in mathematical harmony with his/her individual karma. The horoscope is a challenging portrait revealing their unalterable past and its probable future results. The chart shows what we are now because of what we have thought and done in the past. Astrology, by providing us with a blueprint of our attachments, challenges, talents, and mental tendencies, offers us a way of not only realizing in a specific sense of what our karma is, and helping us work with these confrontations within and without, but also a way of beginning to rise above and gain a perspective on our destiny.

Astrology is not a discipline that promotes a passive acceptance of fate; rather astrology takes an account of your strengths and weaknesses and various tendencies, with the idea that through self-awareness, one can become more conscious of the choices of actions available.

Astrology is a means of taking stock of your inner /outer environment, tendencies, challenges and natural resources so that one may live more wisely, in tune with their own karma or life experiences.

As a science and as an art form, astrology is the study of the subtle energies that make up our world. When we evaluate a horoscope, we are looking at nothing more than the blending of energies, which can combine in an infinite variety of ways. As energetic beings, each one of us is comprised of a combination of energies, which makes up the sum total of our self. The fact is that each of us is created by a particular combination of planetary gravitational pulls exerted in different degrees, from different angles, and in different quantities. The multitude of possible combinations accounts for the variety of personalities, mentalities, physiques, as well as the emotional and intellectual constitutions that we find here on earth.

The stars do not rule our destiny; they merely record a destiny that has already been formed. They are a symbol, not a force; a transmitting energy, not an originating power. The planets do not dictate, but indicate the energies that are influencing a situation at a given time.

Astrology is determinism to the extent that the unchangeable law of karma shadows it; however, life that is guided by free will does not follow any preordained pattern. It is through free will that humanity may guide the future and thereby take charge of creating its own personal destiny.
