    Astrology is a common word amongst almost every Hindu. It is the theoretical practice that gives religious people, who have a belief on the unknown and unforeseen, try to predict their future through this practice. Although the term is often mistaken with astronomy, the fact is that astronomy and astrology are two entirely different factors.

    The word astrology comes from the Greek word ‘astron’ that means star and ‘logos’ meaning non-scientific theory. It is the study of the position of planets, stars, sun and moon and how their relationship and position affects the distant lives of people on earth. This system is practiced majorly by Hindus, but also some other religions and a few civilizations practiced this from the past and still followed by them. The focus of the system is to determine the personality of the individual and to predict the future of the individual. The entire system of astrology depends on the position of the celestial bodies at the time of the birth of an individual.

    Astrology determines the zodiac sign of the individual through the position of the planets. There are 12 zodiac signs according to the presence of the planets and they are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. According to the astrological belief, each person born in a certain zodiac sign will have individual characteristic traits. The study of this non-scientific theory has been practiced from centuries and is attributed to the understanding of only those, who have studied this art for years.

    It is not something that everybody and anybody can understand how it works and not everyone to understand how it affects your life. Predicting the future through astrology is, however, restricted only to a general idea of what can happen to a person and what can be done to resist it. But of course, the specific prediction as well as death predictions cannot be specified through this. Astrology can only predict the fears and the factors from which the individual has a tendency of being affected.

    Most of the learned astrologers have always succeeded in bringing remedies for the individuals to prevent them from the fears and worries from which they have a life threat. Herein comes, the use of the precious stones and the astrological stones in controlling and diverting the threats from the life of the individual. A learned astrologer will always guide you successfully in dealing with your threats and fears and help you have a life of peace and relief.

    In fact, the success and career opportunities can also be guided by the astrologers. With the precious stones that are believed to have domination on the planets and their effects on the lives of individuals, the adverse effects that are predicted through astrology, can be tackled and handled beforehand. Each and every precious stone like cat’s eye, moon stone, ruby, emerald, topaz or pearl has its unique quality and impact on the life of an individual that can help them to avert negativities.

    Hindu Astrology
    Hindu astrology has its origin in sacred Vedas. It is called Vedanga i.e. limb of Vedas.

    Hindu Astrology is based on the principle that accumulated Karmas (actions) of the past lives of an individual are brought into the present life. Every action whether physical, moral or mental produces another action. Astrology simply indicates results of such actions. In Hindu astrology position planets in a birth chart reveals our good and bad deeds (Karma) of previous births and thereby future which is divined by science of Astrology.
