The Karma of Astrological Thinking

The Link Between Astrology and Karma

Astrological Karmic InfluenceMan has been very interested in the heavens and the stars from his very beginning as noted on ancient paintings on caves and tablets. Two major movements have been linked to the stars, and those are astronomy and astrology. While astronomy is the science of studying planets and stars, simply from the standpoint of origin, distance, movement and the destruction of stars, mainly on the physical level. On the other hand, astrology deals more with the relationship that man has with the heavens.

It has been long known that the planting of crops and their success has had a link with the stars in regard to when the planting occurs. Over a period o great time, man has been able to chart the movement of the stars and planets in their relationship to the planet earth and to discern how these movements affect human nature.

Notable individuals, for example, have been born at certain key months according to the signs of the Zodiac and its relation to these birth times. Astrology is a way to not only be aware of events, but to give light to a person’s character and the meaning of their existence.

The prevalent thought along these lines is that this relationship with the stars will then be able to help a person plot their lives more in line with the tendencies that one possesses and be able to live out their lives with a minimum of friction.

The indications that are derived from astrology show a person what their tendencies and inclinations are and will point a person in the directions that they should take in order to be more useful and successful throughout their lives.

By using the principles of astrology, a horoscope can be created that shows the forces of karma that a person carries, and it can be calculated from the time of the birth of that person. By knowing the time of birth of an individual, an astrologer that is skillful can chart the destiny of a person that is accurate and tuned to the lifespan of that individual.

Karma is then described as the total of the actions of a person or individual in this state of existence and past stages and has direct consequences as far as a person’s future state of existence in this life and those that are to come. It is also held out to be the law of moral causation.

Karma is the main principle behind Buddhism as well. This belief acknowledges that every living thing has a cosmic energy which will interact with a karma generated by that individual which will determine the course that the individual will take during a lifetime.

This principle is very similar to the principles of astrology. In order for a life to exist to its full potential there are specific factors, such as nature, mental energy and seasons have to become fulfilled. The karmic energy and mental energy are interacting on a constant basis and are also dependent upon each other which brings about change and progress, or disorder in one’s life, depending upon which influences a person subscribes to.

Astrology says that the specific time that a person is born is determined in advance by the karmic and cosmic energy, while Buddhism says the same thing in so many words. So the link between the two could be said to be that life is not merely an accident, but is greatly influenced by the karmic and cosmic energy that interacts.

Both also would agree that the actions of a person during a lifetime will work for or against that person depending upon how the individual follows that karmic force that prevails upon them. Once a person is born, a life is controlled by the interaction of these forces.

Buddhism points out that a person has a way out of the dilemma of being trapped in these forces, by stating that all karmic forces are stored in the subconscious mind. The good karma is then emphasized and the bad karma is destroyed and done away with by the development of the mind which will destroy the bad influences and thus purify the mind.

Both astrology and Buddhism emphasize that the free will of the individual can do much to understand the karmic forces which are influencing them, and they both provide means of coping with them and rising above their influences to the better good.

Astrology and Psychic Ability

The role of psychic ability in astrologyIf you have ever heard of the terms divination, mediumship, clairvoyance, astral projection, psychokinesis, or even precognition, these all fall into a category of something that is referred to as a psychic ability. These abilities are those that are not explainable, not attributed to any type of empirical data. Despite the fact that science cannot be used to explain the events that have occurred, ones that have been documented for decades attributed to those that possess psychic powers, they are very real, and for those that have experienced them first-hand, this truth is self-evident. Here is a basic overview of what psychic abilities are, how they may originate, and how to determine which ones you might have yourself.

Overview Of Psychic Abilities

Even if you do not know a psychic personally, you may have had psychic occurrences in your life. If you have ever written something down without thinking about it, such as a chapter to a book, or a play that you were writing, this seems to originate from somewhere outside of yourself. People have sometimes avoided driving to a destination, or boarding a plane, having what is called a death warning. This is a type of precognition, something that is very common with those that have psychic abilities, individuals that seem to be able to not only tap into their own timestream, but may also be able to help others in regard to choices that they need to make. Essentially, psychic abilities are those abilities which have no explanation, yet they do occur, without understanding why. Here are the top five psychic abilities that many people have as documented throughout the ages.

Top Five Psychic Abilities

When people are able to talk to the dead, this is called mediumship or channeling. You have probably seen John Edward on national television, a psychic that has helped thousands of people communicate with loved ones that have passed. Psychometry is the ability to gain knowledge by touching a person, or an object that was owned by a person, effectively tuning the psychic into their thoughts and memories. You are probably had a feeling about someone, or new something about someone, examples of this particular type of psychic power. Dowsing is something that has been used, even documented, for hundreds of years, used by indigenous people to find water. It is still practiced today, a method that does seem to have a substantial amount of credence by virtue of the fact that people that developed land will almost always call one of these dowsers to come in to tell them where they need to drill for water. Telepathy is similar to psychometry, with the exception that it is knowledge that you know without having to physically touch a person or an object that they have possessed. Finally, hands-on healing, or what is called energy medicine, is slowly becoming accepted as a tangible and real ability that many people have based upon the many miracles that have occurred when modern medicine was not able to save an individual, but a person with these powers was able to help them recover.

Do You Have Psychic Abilities?

To find out if you have psychic abilities, you simply have to think about things that you have done in your life. If you have ever known something about someone, had precognition about an event that was going to happen, or if you have ever laid hands on someone in order to heal them, feeling your hands get exceptionally hot, this is a psychic ability. By looking at the many that exist, and comparing those attributes to your own life and experiences that you have had, not only will you be able to determine if you have had psychic occurrences in your life, but you will also know if you can build upon these natural abilities that so many people have worldwide.

Understanding Relationship Astrology

Astrology and the heart in relationshipsAstrology is the ancient art and science of interpreting signs and symbols from the stars. Although this study has been used for all sorts of things, from politics to naming babies, lots of people are very interested in relationship astrology. This is also called “Synestry.”

Sure, there are plenty of astrology readers and websites that promise to analyze zodiac sign compatibility, but these readings are usually very general, so they are not all that useful. Asking a general question like, “Does a Scorpio usually get along with a Leo?” is usually not that helpful. Just using the basic signs of the Zodiac

What Is Synestry?

Synestry, or the science of relationship astrology, is fairly complex. It isn’t simple at all like simply matching up two of the twelve major signs of the zodiac. On the other hand, it does not automatically disqualify two people from being partners on the basis of simple zodiac signs.

This type of love comparability comparison, that just compares two signs, is too general to be useful, and it might even be damaging. Two be told that two people cannot get along because one happens to be a Capricorn and the other is an Aquarius is ridiculous and dangerous. If that was the whole premise of relationship astrology, it would not even deserve further study.

To understand the more complex and helpful aspect of using astrology for help with relationships, it might be helpful to consider an example. What better example is there but Venus, the goddess of love?

Venus: The Love Goddess

Most people associate Venus with love. This goddess is a common figure in mythology. Because Venus is considered the goddess of love, she can help us all gain valuable insights into various matters of the heart. She is the ruler of romantic love, but she is also important in other kinds of relationships. Some examples are relationships with family members, coworkers, and friends.

While understanding romantic relationships is important, most people with agree that all of these other kinds of relationships are also critical for having a happy and peaceful life. While most people have been drawn to people in mysterious ways at one time or another, it might be because of the influence of Venus because she rules over attractions, and this is true if they are romantic, friendly, or even business relationships.

Anyway, the point is that Venus and relationship astrology are often used to help with romantic relationships. But just as very important, they can get used for all kinds of relationships.

Also, as mentioned before, it isn’t just a person’s general zodiac sign that tends to rule their relationships. Good interpreters of the zodiac will, for example, also determine how Venus interacts on the charts of both parties in a relationship, or at east on the chart of the person requesting a reading. This can help pinpoint potential problems.

Instead of comparing two basic zodiac signs, it is interesting to compare what are called planet aspects. For example, one partner might be ruled by Venus. The other may be ruled by Pluto, Mars, or the Sun.

Note: For purposes of astrology, Pluto and the sun are considered planets. Yes, the sun is a star, but it is our star. The ancients hadn’t gotten the word from modern scientists about not calling Pluto a planet.

* Venus and the Sun: These two usually find each other very charming and interesting, and the attraction is usually more than physical. These two people tend to make each other feel good.
* Venus and Mars: This may indicate more of a sexual or physical attraction.

The Purpose Of Relationship Astrology

Again, the point of all of this is not to tell two people that they should never interact with other. If that were the whole point of astrology, it would be practically useless. The point is to shine a light on strengths and weaknesses, so people who view their love astrology reading know the whole story. They may choose to go with their strengths or spend more time working on improving themselves in weaker areas.

The influence of the stars may be strong on people’s basic personality and even their love interests. However, you know what they say: Love conquers all!

Chinese Astrology and Chinese Medicine

Chinese Astrology and Medical RemediesChinese Astrology like in Western societies looks to the stars for many of life’s answers. Together with the planets and other celestial bodies it is thought to predict a person’s destiny. Unlike in Western Astrology, it incorporates a 12 year cycle of animal signs. It infuses itself into Chinese philosophy and Chinese medicine. We will take a deeper look at these with-in this article.

In addition to the planets, the Sun and the Moon and the cycle of 12 animals, it also incorporates the elements of wood, fire, water, and earth. Depending on how the planets are aligned, in the year of what animal are you born and what element is present at birth all combine to determine what your personality is, if you have any physical weakness or susceptibility to illness, and even when you will die.

Chinese medicine harmonizes with Chinese astrology in that it adheres to these same ideas of philosophy. It tries to harmonize with all parts of nature. Our natural surroundings, the other people that are in our lives, the beliefs we have are all believed to be affected by those things in nature that were present when we were first born.

The more we can understand how these elements influence our lives the better we are able to direct our lives in a positive way. This in turn can improve health and when Chinese medicine is needed, can help the doctor understand how best to bring your body into harmony.

When we experience being out of balance or harmony, then we suffer stress. Stress is a major component to the development of many diseases and illnesses. Stress and illness can decrease life expectancy. So Chinese medicine often uses Chinese Astrology to help bring the body and spirit into harmony with ones surroundings and with one’s natural nature.

Using Chinese Astrology to help determine if certain person is compatible as a mate can play a major role in determining if your family life with harmonize with your natural personality. The same is true with a business partner. If you choose the wrong one, you will be out of balance which can lead to stress and illness.

It is always fun and entertaining to gain perspective from Chinese Astrology. Sometimes we may not like it if we find we are born in the year of the rat or pig. But that is only because we do not understand the real meaning of those animals in Chinese Astrology.

All of these links are important under this natural science to determine what talents you might have, what partner in life and in business is best suited for you. What friends are compatible and even what career choice is best suited for you.

While western science does not recognize this as real science. Millions and millions see this as a sound science that has thousands of years of practice to back it up. The idea of harmony is certainly an idea that seems to make sense. Nature clearly shows us that harmony is correct and necessary. So Chinese Astrology first tries to establish the foundation of your life and personality in a way that allows it to harmonize with your natural personality and surroundings. Chinese medicine tries to bring you back into harmony when you get out of shorts.

When you begin to experience stress from failing to harmonize then Chinese medicine tries to correct this.

In conclusion, if you want to discover your true nature then you should strongly consider learning more about Chinese Astrology. If you are experiencing a lot of stress then you should seek out a practitioner of Chinese medicine to get back into harmony.

The Strengths Of Vedic Astrology

Vedic Shiva SymbolVedic astrology hails from India where it has been in practice for thousands of years. It is a form of astrology that is considered to be an absolute science by those who practice and adhere to it. Vedic astrology uses the same fixed constellations to make predictions as those used by astronomers in calculation. It combines science, mathematics, metaphysics, cosmology and knowledge,skill and ability to help advise individuals in wise life choices.

Vedic astronomy differs from western astronomy because the latter makes use of the tropical zodiac. This system is based in the equinox and was developed almost 2000 years ago. It is based in the assumption that the sun will return to the same position during the annual spring equinox. Actually, because it takes a little over 365 days for the earth to go around the sun, this assumption cannot be true. For this reason, western astrology cannot be accurate.

Vedic astrology has been in existence for more than 5000 years, and it makes use of the phenomenon known as the precession of equinox. This concept is also central to the science of astronomy. Simply put, Vedic astrology takes into account the fact that the planets progressively fall behind the arbitrary placements imposed by the concept of the tropical equinox.

Vedic astrology has  been going strong for all of its 5000 years regardless of oppression of what are commonly known as the dark arts. Its basis in science is the reason for this.

In Vedic astrology a birth map (horoscope) is created that symbolically represents the actual placement of the stars, planets and the earth, itself, at the time of the querent’s birth. The map or horoscope is thought of as a mystic cryptogram representing direct communication from the divine regarding the destiny of the querent. This knowledge allows the seeker to better direct his or her own life.

Vedic astrology provides the querent with practical, specific information upon which to base pivotal decisions. It can help a person avoid mistakes and choose more wisely throughout life. It can help predict what the outcome of our choices will be.

Here are the aspects of life encompassed on a Vedic birth chart:

1. Your Health: If you are predisposed to certain weaknesses, ailments or conditions it will be evident in your chart. This will allow you to take precautions. Your chart will help you identify your Ayurvedic body type (Kapha, Pitta or Vata) so that you can make smart health decisions.

2. Your Psychological Makeup: The position of the planets and stars at the time of your birth determine your psychological makeup to a great extent; however, when you are aware of this you can make wise decisions to safeguard yourself against problems such as depression, obsession and so on.

3. Build Good Relationships: Comparing your chart with that of a person with whom you hope to form a relationship can be very helpful in attaining success. IN some instances, you may find that there is no hope for compatibility; however, in most instances you will simply be able to see the steps you will need to take to become in-tune with this person. This is true for new or established friendships, romances and business relationships.

4. Make Smart Career Choices: Vedic astrology can help you identify your strengths and weaknesses to make smart education choices in preparation for a new career. If you are dissatisfied with your career, Vedic astrology will help you make wise decisions to remedy the problem.

Vedic astrology is far more practical that western astrology. When you have your chart done, you can refer to it frequently throughout your life to keep yourself  on course for success.
