Its Indian name is Jyotish, which means “science of light” because it is the science of observing the celestial bodies that reflect their energy and light upon the, Earth, therefore influencing the course of human events. Vedic Astrology is the use of “planetary periods” of influence. The periods are incredibly predictive. By looking to that planet in the chart – its sign, house, aspects, house lordship, conjunctions, and strength – one can tell very specifically what a person can expect to experience during that planetary period. Each major period is then broken down into sub-periods lasting one to three years, which then adds another layer of prediction. In nut shell you can say “Vedic astrology” deals with astral light patterns that are thought to determine our destiny. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google plus Share on WhatsApp eAnswers Team 4 Questions 27728 Answers 0 Best Answers 1 Points View Profile eAnswers Team Added an answer on October 3, 2018 at 9:52 am The Hindu astrology is termed as Vedic Astrology.
