Life is most unpredictable and so are we, the human beings. Life offers us plenty of miseries sometimes, again it sometimes comes as a bed of roses. Though life is full of happiness and sadness, still the reality is that, none of us know what is going to happen with us within the coming days or even the upcoming hours. Why is our life so much erratic? What are the factors accountable for those uncertainties?
Although science has advanced a great deal that it may predict the โหราศาสตร์, the features from the galaxy which can be billions of light-years far from us and many others facts that were unknown to us few years back also, yet it is still now unable to foresee our future.
And where science has raised its hand and surrendered, pseudoscience i.e. astrology has advanced. Some people consider astrology as being a false belief. They believe that how it is possible we can foresee our upcoming days by calculating the positioning of the celestial bodies? How would be the celestial bodies able to changing one’s life?
But is astrology a real pseudoscience, or some type of science lies under all the calculations of astrology? I am among those individuals who feel that astrology has science within it. This mysterious science draws my head from a long time back that had motivated me to learn the origin of astrology and several things more about it. Today I’ll share some details about astrology together with you all.
The foundation of astrology extends back towards the ancient cradle of civilization- Babylonia in the nineteenth century BC. From the studies of Plato, Aristotle as well as others, astrology is highly thought to be a science. Though initially people tried it to predict the weather, agricultural development, natural disaster war and so on, recently it has put into our daily life. We use astrology today mostly to foresee our future.
Indian astrology- it is popularly called Vedic astrology or “Jyotish”. The great sage “Parasara” developed the thought of Indian astrology. Though Indian astrology is called Vedic astrology, nevertheless the interesting fact is that it is nowhere mentioned in Veda” but mentioned in “Vedanga”, which is a limb of “Veda”. Later, some eminent philosopher, like Satyacarya, Varaha Mihira did some incredible focus on Indian school of astrology and wrote books on it. Till now the period of origin of Indian astrology will not be clear. But according to some, it provides originated within a period of 1200 BC to 2500 BC.
Vedic astrology has three main categories. These are: Siddhanta- it is the study of arithmetic, algebra, trigonometry, astronomy and geometry. It will help to calculate the planetary positions of numerous celestial bodies. Samhita- it will be the study from the planetary site in the sun as well as other celestial bodies and their influence on natural disaster, war, hurricane, different geo-political effects etc.
Chinese astrology- beside Indian astrology or Hindu astrology, one of many oldest schools of astrology is the Chinese school of astrology. Based on some individuals, Chinese astrology has originated many thousands of years back. It provides entered China via the same silk route, which is the central Asian trade route by which Buddhism entered China from India. Chinese astrology depends upon the lunar cycle and takes twelve years to complete. It comprises five elements- Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth. Yin and Yang are definitely the balancing, vibrant forces that keep the universe in a balanced situation each time at each and every level. Although it is principally popular in east-Asia, still it is among the most favored beliefs in the common people in the entire world and they consult Chinese astrology in their daily lives.
Western astrology- it is actually popular mostly in Europe and US. Western astrology originated in Mesopotamia during 2nd millennium BC. It developed very long time after Chinese astrology. The Arabs brought western astrology to Greece.
There are two main branches of Western astrology. Natal- this type of astrology handles the nativity of a person. Judicial- eclipse, lunation, ingress, or some specific moments soon enough is definitely the basis of this sort of astrology. Different astrologers in various thing about this World follow various kinds of astrology to calculate the way forward for someone or even a nation. Many astrologers, fortune-tellers forecast the way forward for someone though they do not give any written evidence on its authenticity. The so-called “scientific” people take a look at these astrological predictions as “quackery”.
But recently the scientists has generated the science behind astrology. It is a fact that the tabloid-astrology which we sometimes see in the internet or tabloids as daily horoscope has no scientific basis which predicts that you are currently a scorpion and today you will definitely get a lottery. However the calculations of an eminent astrologer can not be denied who had predicted an extended vuztgx back what will almost certainly happen with you and the same thing is happening together with you now. Additionally it is a fact that when rotation of the moon comes with an effect on the oceans and seas and is responsible for the tides, it will definitely have an impact on human life also.
The debate that astrology is really a science or โหราศาสตร์ continue inside the upcoming days also. But keeping in mind its historical origin, the correct predictions by some astrologers before the occurrence of the incidence and also the scientific research, could we really state that all these are simply a quack? Should we actually show the spirit to deny the science behind astrology?
