Vedic Astrology

Astrology is the science of the possibilities in time; the Vedas describe it as Kala Vidya, the science of time. Vedic Astrology comprises the basic structure of the universe as well as its movements. Its language is universal; it is the language of cosmic energy that can be used for all areas of life.

According to great Indian sages, the rishis, the study of the planets and their relationships is a fundamental medium for attaining wisdom, for knowledge about the self, and for realizing the cosmic being within us. Astrology helps us understand the course of our life and our character, as well as other people’s life, and gives us methods to direct and transform the personality.
