Astrology is an ancient science and astrological predictions have a scientific base. Indian Vedic Astrology is like any other science of the modern times. All Sciences are updating and reaching the next levels. However Astrology particularly Indian Vedic Astrology seems to be losing its sheen over the years.
Is Vedic astrology true? Why do astrological predictions fail?
Main reason is because many of us are practicing this Vedic Astrology more as a business than profession. Modern, educated and also people with bitter experiences then become indifferent towards it. And in the process, this wonderful science Indian Vedic Astrology seems to be losing its sheen in the modern times. Then comes the question – what to do? This blog is a sincere attempt to apprise the reader of the fundamentals not only about the Indian Vedic Astrology but also about the practitioners of this.
Basic principles of Vedic Astrology and Predictions
1st & foremost point here is that the Horoscope cannot be changed by anyone not even creator Lord Brahma. Then how do the Astrology or Astrologers can help & why should we take their help. This is a prudent and significant question. Horoscope can not be changed but you can mend its results taking advantage of planetary transits. Therefore the best way to reap positive results is to take advantage from the planetary transits (changing Gochar) and Dashas. Picking up negative points of horoscope ( just reading Lagna D1 Chart), loading person with mindless rituals is not my methodology. I try to focus mainly on the reasons causing concern with deep analysis of relevant divisional charts. And then guiding you more towards karmic corrections , how to derive results from planetary transits, changing Dashas. And then finally suggesting may be some small but doable totally Vedic Astrological solutions. Astrology and astrological predictions are such a vast subject that the writing on these subjects would never suffice. Still I would elaborate on few important points which come to mind after 2 decades of practicing on Indian Vedic Astrology.
My methodology of Astrological Predictions.
I apart from a PhD in Astrology, am also a Qualified Civil Engineer. So whatever I would narrate would have scientific meaning and authenticity with pure mathematical calculations. In the entire narration, my focus would be to co-relate everything with the Karmas of past life to a Horoscope. And then guiding you on the Karmas of your present life. These Karmas are in our hand which can be and should be manipulated. That is what the Indian Vedic Astrology says in its true sense.

Difference between Indian Vedic Astrology and Western Astrology.
Indian Vedic Astrology is basically reading horoscope in context of the past life of a person. It primarily emphasises on analysing:
- Reading pending karmas from one’s previous life. (These are dridh, can’t be changed)
- Understanding liabilities of pending Karmas & negative karmas from this life.
- Residual karmas for the afterlife
- Then guiding the person for the modifications in the karmas of present life. These are in our hand and flexible karmas.
- Because then only, it would lay the path of future.
That is where Indian Vedic Astrology is different from Western Astrology which deals only in future predictions. Here my take is that since our own past Karmas only constitute our Horoscope, without co-relating it in the astrological predictions , future predictions can have a question mark.
Can anyone change Horoscope?
A horoscope deciphers various planets & positioning of the different planets. Once the horoscope is cast, no one , even the creator of it (Lord Brahma) can change it. A horoscope is not any random script but allotted to us based on our past life karmas. These Karmas are dridh (fixed) so are the planets & their positioning fixed. So you can’t change anything in it. Another very important point is that each horoscope has both malefic & benefic planets. So one should never get frightened with the negative planets or pampered with positive Yogas. Negative planets can also give positive results and positive blossoming Yogas can also give least results. It all depends how we maneuver our Karmas to activate or de-activate these different Yogas & Dosha in Horoscope.
Relevance of Vedic astrology & astrological predictions in Human life.
There are many important aspects in human life at different stages for which people actually look upon to true astrology and astrological predictions. Let me give basic panorama as what do I think of Vedic Astrology and astrological predictions.
First be sure yourself about Astrologer.
Do not leave yourself totally to the wisdom of astrologer. He / she should be astrologer by design and not by default. Another very important point is that the astrologer should be knowing about the relevant divisional charts attributed to the different traits of life. And the astrological predictions should not be based only on D 1 or the Lagna Chart. Verify & satisfy yourself about the capabilities of the astrologer before consulting.

Accurate birth time is the soul of Vedic Astrology
Accurate birth time is the soul of Vedic Astrology hence one needs to be 100% sure his / her accurate birth time. In case of even iota of doubt, one should foremost go for birth time rectification. This is more prudent when the analysis relate to D-9, D-10 where Lagna chart changes every almost 4 minutes & most importantly D-60 where this changes every minute. If it is not possible then it is better not to take predictions than taking an erred prediction. Because here wrong predictions can become a real bane while you were expecting benefits. However, another constrain here is that BTR is a very scientific tool. And only an expert can do it and no novice. Want to read more insights on birth time rectification click here else proceed.
Essentials of Vedic astrology for Career predictions
Every horoscope has definite indications which field, stream one should select & pursue the career. A doctor’s son need not be a doctor. All can not become IAS or Businessman or leading Google or Microsoft and likewise. Selection of career or education stream should not be based on inheritance, surroundings, social obligations, family pressures or spontaneous likings. You must satisfy that the astrologer has referred to relevant divisional charts of horoscope i.e D1 Basic Lagna Chart, D10 Dasamsha Chart & D 60 Shastiamsha Chart before giving any astrological predictions on this subject.
I should go for job or business!
Every horoscope deciphers clearly whether it has an employee yoga or employer yoga. All may want to do business but we should see if there is an employer yoga in their horoscope. If this was not relevant, many giant business houses of earlier decades would not have vanished from the Orbit. So one should not opt for a job or business just out of circumstances, inheritance fascinations, pressures etc. Also many a times, extreme success in the job in a particular field prompts to start one’s own initiative in the same field. This can be harmful as planets supporting your success as employee may not support you as a employee. Therefore, get the verification from an able astrologer of this Employee or employer Yoga before taking any decision abruptly.You should be sure that the astrologer is considering relevant divisional charts of horoscope i.e D10 Dasamsha Chart & D 60 Shastiamsha Chart.

Pl verify that the astrologer is considering D1 Basic Lagna Chart , D9 Navamsha chart & D7 Saptamsha Chart in his analysis.
How would be my married life?
The happiness of marriage life depends on the compatibility factors of both the spouses. One should not marry only with Gun Milan before the marriage. Gun Milan is only a preliminary step towards matching the charts for marriage. One should always go for complete analysis of these marriage compatibility factors. Checking of these marriage compatibility factors is important not only for marriage aspirants. But it also throws adequate light on the problems in post-married life. They will find mis-match of any of these marriage compatibility factors only leading to thier marital unrest.

Disputes, Litigations, court cases in life.
With the growing age, such situation can confront anyone in life . Such unwanted situations emerge only from 2 factors. First where lower operating Jupiter leads native towards greed, unrealistic ambitions, deceitful tendencies, it invite court cases. Second, where the native due to weak planets in the his / her horoscope is dragged / induced by others into such situations. A true astrology with unbiased astrological predictions can decode and really help a person. You should be sure that the astrologer is considering D30 Trimsamasha Chart & D 60 Shastiamsha for the analysis.
Astrology remedies & rituals – not the final solution
My strong belief here is that rituals can not please the God. That is where my mythodology on Indian Vedic Astrology differs from many. I am clear that unless we modify & regulate our Karmas, nothing works. One can not ratify Pitra dosh with any rituals unless we respect our parents. Also there is no ritual potent enough to eradicate what is written in the Horoscope. We should not follow rituals only because we are scared or want to look for an excuse to carry our flawed Karmas. Therefore one should avoid following unmindful rituals. You must read on do astrology rituals really help? before exiting from this blog.
Final say on principles, essentials of Vedic astrology
I have seen many horoscopes where people are either scared with many Negative Dosha like Mangal Dosh, Pitra Dosh, Guru Chandal Dosh, Nadi Dosh & so on. Same way many people are flattered seeing some positive yogas in horoscope like Amala Yoga, Viprit Rajyoga, Mahabhag Yoga, Adhiyoga, Kesari Yoga, Gaj Kesri Yoga. But I believe in theory of Karma Correction. I have already narrated above no dosha or Yoga harm or benefit you by themselves without our Karmas . We should manipulate our Karmas to keep malefic planets de-activated and activate benefic planets . And that is where the Vedic Astrology helps you , provided we know the right person.
To go with astrological predictions on the basis of astrology all is a matter of faith. SO either we should not depend on it. And if we want to depend on it, we should be sure that we contact an able astrologer. All this I have explained adequately with best of my efforts. In this blog, I have tried to give some relevant explanations. Rest all is left to the wisdom of the reader.
