Vedic Astrology is a 5,000 year old science that studies the creation of the Universe and the movement of the Grahas (planets) and Nakshatras (fixed stars) in relation to the Earth.

What is Jyotish?

Jyotish in Sanskrit translates as “science of light” and originated about 5,000 years ago.

The knowledge has been passed orally (Sruti) among the rishis (ancient sages) until today. It is an astrological science that comes from the Vedas. The word Veda in Sanskrit means “knowledge” and Jyotish is known as a Vedanga; a branch of the Vedas (Yajur Veda, Sama Veda, Atharva Veda and the Rig Veda).

Astrology is based on the study of the movement of the grahas (planets) in relation to the Earth. Also being sidereal, it is characterized to study the Nakshatras (fixed stars) that are behind the Solar System and creating a coordinated system between these two.

The six branches

The knowledge of Jyotish is divided into six branches and they are as follows:

  1. Gola. It is a science that studies the planetary positions with their orbits and movements.
  2. Jataka. It is known as the astrological chart. In my case, the interpretation and application of different techniques are mainly from different works such as Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra, Yavana Jataka and the Jaimini Sutras.
  3. Nimitta. It is the study of omens; analyzing the signs that manifest in the environment when the chart is analyzed or during the consultation. It is also the observation of the phenomenological field that gives a lot of information about the reading.
  4. Prashna. It is a chart just created at the moment when the native asks a question. It has a duration of one year.
  5. Muhurta. It is the study of the most favorable and suitable moments to succeed in important activities such as a wedding, opening a business, selling or buying a property and among others.
  6. Ganita. Study the mathematics of astronomy and astrology. Understand well the time-space concept in order to determine the positions of the planets in the ecliptic and in relation to the Earth.

Origin and history

The Rishis classified our present life into four great purposes or “Purushartas”; Dharma or right living; Artha or the monetary and material aspect; Kama or desires and finally Moksha or spiritual progress and liberation. They recognized the importance of balancing these four aspects of life for our evolutionary process and in order to understand and improve it they created the “Shastras”.

One of them was the “Jyotishya”. Jyoti means light and Isha is God. The light of God to eliminate ignorance has always been a science with constant evolution to obtain the best results.

One of the main inner and outer conflicts of most people is that there is a great dissonance between what the mind, body and soul manifests in this life. Jyotish helps to understand and therefore integrate through jnana (knowledge) the path of our life in this Prarabdha Karma (Karma from birth to death).

Methodology of work

The way I work with Jyotish is to analyze the Jataka (astral chart) of people and make an accompaniment through the evolution and implementation of new habits.

First I focus on studying which are the planets and areas of life where there is more tamasic energy (dark, ignorance, obsessions, confusion, fears, maya and others). It will indicate what we carry from other lives and the reason for rebirth. Each one of us has dark parts where we struggle since we are very young. As the years go by, a series of karmic cycles are activated, and we live traumatic experiences in which many times we do not know why we have to be the “victims”.

Thanks to the dedication of the rishis and the evolution in this science, we now have the blessing of being able to connect with our true essence and put light on our path to raise consciousness in different aspects. Not only the physical, mental and emotional, but at the level of soul and past lives where we are still in the cycle of Samsara.

The first step is to start with the general session to show and share what for me is fundamental to focus on having a full life: the purpose of life.

We all need help in different aspects of life and the goal is to be able to develop and work through professionals and specialists that I refer according to what each person needs. All this is a plus to more besides the personalized remedies of the lineage that I offer such as mantras, fasts, concrete activities and among many others that help to raise consciousness and consequently increase the overall well-being of each person.

And finally is to make accompaniments in cyclical moments where it is often necessary to understand in what cycles we are in the year or even what may come in the not too distant future to prevent situations of any kind.

Frequent questions

What is the difference between tropical and Vedic astrology?

Vedic astrology uses the sidereal system where the position of the planets is determined by the fixed stars called the “Nakshatras” and with a zodiac that is based on the real and actual astronomical positions. On the other hand, western or tropical astrology uses the equinoxes and the orientation of the Earth with respect to the Sun.

What information do I need for the reading?

The information you need is your date of birth, place and exact time.

How can a Jataka or birth chart reading benefit me?

The astrological chart reading is a tool for self-knowledge in every sense. It is a first step to open the door to your karmic map where you can access information and sacred knowledge of your body, mind and soul. Other benefits are:

  • Understanding your Karma.
  • Integrate transformational cycles of past, present and future.
  • Become aware of behavioral and karmic patterns.
  • Empower your unique and perfect intelligences.
  • Understand the cause of suffering and pain through planetary cycles.
  • Observe which areas are the most ignorant and need attention.
  • The cause and reason for rebirth.
  • To put look and light on the “doshas” or afflictions or planetary obstructions.
  • Obtain personalized remedies.
How can I benefit from a comprehensive follow-up of the Jataka or astrological chart?

The follow-up sessions help you to integrate the real purpose and reason for rebirth through seeing what are also the unique and perfect intelligences that are innately part of your being.

By having access to the Mahadasas (karmic cycles that we live at an individual level since we are born and that affect us at an emotional and neuronal level) or transits (cycles of the planets) that are activated every week, month and year we can understand in which vital moment we are in. It also helps us to be aware of when we are approaching more unfavorable times and when more effort is required to overcome hard cycles that are sure to come throughout life.

Jyotish is the “Science of Light” and thanks to the techniques of works such as Brihat Parashara Hora Sastra and the Jaimini Sutras it is possible to prevent favorable and unfavorable cycles in aspects such as health, love and money. When you have access to the cyclic movements of the planets and stars you can focus your energy in the right direction.

What are astrological remedies? What types of remedies are applied? What are they for?

Astrological remedies are different activities that are recommended to start implementing within a person’s routine. Each native according to their chart and their combinations will need some remedies, such as for example:

  • Reciting personalized mantras.
  • Yantras.
  • Pujas.
  • Fasting.
  • To make concrete activities some day of the week.
  • Books.
  • Raising the body energy and taking care of the body.
  • Referral to specialists and professionals for a specific subject.

The remedies serve to reduce the planetary effects that cause pain and suffering; to elevate the consciousness through “Sattva” or putting light where there is ignorance.

What is the best time to do a Jataka or birth chart reading?

There is no better time. When it is given and the person feels it is when it manifests itself. Normally it is when one is going through a cycle that is harder than usual or because there is some area of life with a major blockage/blockage that needs to be addressed.

What percentage of prediction does Vedic Astrology have?

Jyotish works with what is called “confluence”. For any aspect a number of different techniques are used and when there are about 8 out of 10 that indicate the specific manifestation of a karma, that is when there is little margin for error. In the Brihat Parashara Hora Sastra it is said that we have 20/25% “book of will”.
