Vedic Astrology - Lesson 6
© 2001 G. Kumar - Eastrovedica
In higher states of Consciousness, many philosophic verities were cognised by the Sages which gave birth to the sciences called Astrology, Numerology, Yoga & Vedanta. All sciences study Being. Physics is the science of Being as Matter, as Energy. Chemistry is the science of Being as Qualities. Mathematics is the Science of Being as Numbers. Biology, the science of Being as Life. But the philosophia prima (Vedanta) is the Science of Being as Being, in its pure state. While the Science of Being (Vedanta) & the Art of Living (Yoga) dominated the six main sciences, the six auxiliary sciences were dominated by the Science of Being as Time (Astrology).
The Law of Corresondences - Western and Eastern Views
In the Occident, the divine Hermes Trismegistus spelt out the Law of Correspondences saying "That which is on high is that which is on below, that which is on below is that which is on high, in order that the miracle of Unity may be perpetual".
In the Orient, Aurobindo averred "The mystery of the lotus cannot be deciphered by analysing the mud below, but by analysing the heavenly archetype of the lotus that blooms forever in the heavens above".
The role of Jupiter in Horoscopy
The biggest planet in the solar system, Jupiter is considered to be one of the most important planets. 1300 earths can be fit into Jupiter. He is the indicator of Divine Grace and if he be benign, the entire horoscope is considered benign. On the other hand, if he be weak, the horoscope loses its intrinsic strength.

The Law of Epistemic Correlation
This Law states that all sciences are interrelated. We will examine what all other sciences are related to this Science of Destiny.
To Pythagorus, the mystery of the Universe was symbolised by Numbers. Every number has a particular vibration and certain numbers were found to be beneficial to human beings. This synthesis of Numerology and Astrology metamorphosed into the science of Astro-Numerology.
According to Howard Beckman of the Planetary Gemologists Association (www.p-g-a.org), gems increase the transmission of Cosmic Colours radiated by the planets which is absorbed by our etheric or astral body. Thus the Colour Hunger of the etheric body is satiated resulting in the elimination of disease. This is the rationale of Gem Therapy. Dr Kapur in his book "Gems and Astrology" has recorded how he has successfully healed a Libra Ascendant patient by making him wear a Golden Topaz!
Astrology & Ayurvedic Therapy
Holistic Medicine (Ayurveda) is related to the science of the revolving heavens. Ayurvedic physicians of yore used the horoscope to diagnose disease. According to them the seven planets represented the seven gross elements (dhatus). A weakly placed Saturn was responsible for arthritis and Jupiter for diabetes. Since the 12 signs from the Ascendant represented the 12 limbs of the human body by correspondence, they could discern which part of the body was afflicted by disease. Rahu in the sixth was found to cause gas trouble and ulceration since the sixth house represented the belly.
Astrology as related to Yoga
Yoga is not a way of doing, it is a way of Being.
The aim of Yoga is Union with Cosmic Intelligence. The Self or the Divine Spark within us is experienced as Bliss. The aspirant by overcoming his negative aspect and uniting with his Higher Self can become one with the "Bliss for which the world's derelict sorrows yearn"! As the Science of Time, Astrology can point out the barriers on the path of the aspirant, the impediments which block his progress and instruct him how to remove those barriers!
