Astrology is an ancient science which was introduced to the Hindu culture through our Vedic scriptures. The science of astrology is a combination of calculation and application of knowledge to anticipate the various events that are likely to occur to an Individuals life. In fact, the science of astrology is closely interrelated to all its siblings which is Numerology and Vaastu Shastra. All three of them have their genesis from the text of Vedas. Hence the trio is very important for the wellbeing of Human beings.
In fact, the six-auxiliary discipline of studies called Vedangas in Vedas includes Shiksha, Chandas, Vyakarana, Nirukta, Kalpa and Jyotisha. It is thus in the Vedangas of the Vedas that considers Jyotisha as the eye of Veda. The subject of Jyotisha is the originator of the science called: Mathematics. Since the fundamentals of Mathematics is a calculation, the siblings of astrology namely Numerology and Vaastu Shastra too include calculations. All three form the science of Occult studies in India.
Hence, in our county, all three subjects have adequate importance. Therefore, for a native to become an expert astrologer, the native should be a master of all the three subjects Visa-Vis: Astrology, Numerology, and Vaastu Shastra.
In astrology, as we all know, the birth chart of the native is the fundamental input to the astrologer. It is this that helps them to read the future of an individual. All the nine planets are placed amongst the twelve zodiac signs and then the fortune of native builds. It is through the placement of these nine planets that emanate energy upon a native and then the native is made to act accordingly. But here the astrologer would need the input of a birth chart.
Again, the birth chart should have accurate details, i.e. date of birth, month, year and time of birth. It is with these details the placement of Moon; the ascendant sign and its degree are calculated. In case, if these details need rectification, then an expert astrologer would have to spend time and get the position of the nine planets and their placement accurate. Post which the exercise of fortune telling is undertaken. This practice is elaborate and would need time to give accurate predictions.
In the word of dynamism, an astrologer may not always enjoy the luxury of time to analyze in detail and then give predictions. It is here, that the science of Numerology gets an edge. In Numerology, the input of date of birth, month and year of birth is sufficient to give an instant answer to the querent. So, at times certain quick query can be answered with the help of Numerology. Such as career, marriage, heath, a span of life etc., can be easily answered through Numerology. Numerology is so advance, that the science can be even applied to give answers through horary method.
Similarly, the positive energy which is a need for an individual through the Five elements of Fire, Water, Air, Earth, and Space is called Vaastu Shastra. It is through Vaastu Shastra, the placement and angles, which decides the positive energy of a place which is radiated upon the native. This information may not be completely known through astrology. Therefore, a good astrologer should be competent in Vaastu Shastra too. He must understand the various rules in Vaastu and then analyze the best possible outcome.
Therefore, it is very necessary for a practitioner of occult science in India that they should understand the nuances of all the three subjects. Fame is not an overnight achievement. A good astrologer spends time and energy to learn the above three subjects and then slowly practices to perfect the same. It is the genuine efforts of a good astrologer that lead him or her towards perfection and then slowly they top the list of famous astrologers. As they master the subject, they also perfect their predicting techniques.
