Vedic Astrology or Jyotish originated in India more than 5,000 years ago (*first found documents). Vedic comes from Vedas, the primary source of wisdom and knowledge of Hindu Philosophy. It is known as the "Science of Light", whose understanding enlightens us guiding towards the right direction. Therefore, Vedic Astrology is called the "Eyes of the Vedas", because they separate us from the darkness and give us greater perspective to find the "door" that takes us out from ignorance, giving us a greater conscious understanding of who we really are and getting closer to our essence.

From its beginnings, the Vedic Philosophy works with three main axes, understanding the complexity of the Human Being:
1. Ayurveda to manage the aspects of the physical body.
2. Yoga for those aspects related to the mind.
3. Astrology for those related to the soul.

All of them are closely linked, considering our existence, its study and treatment from a holistic approach. Therefore, they can be represented as a triangle whose edges are always connected.

The study of the soul has two important aspects:
Destiny: what we cannot control. It can be simplified as "what I receive".
Karma: everything that depends on us and we can control. It can be simplified as "what I give". "Karma" is a Sanskrit expression translated as "Action."

At this point, we can think that astrology Chart does not make sense if our destinaty is already fixed:

Imagine that in the weather forecast they say "tomorrow it's going to rain". This is a fact, you can not change it. So, why is it important to have this information? Because maybe you planned something thinking about a sunny day (a barbecue, for example). You will surely cancel it and wait for a day with better weather to come. But if you have a commitment and you need to go outside (go to the office, for example), knowing this, you will surely go out with an umbrella.  Two people can face the same fact (rain) in different ways. One goes out with an umbrella and the other without it. Both of them will be affected by climate but in very different ways. One will return home dry and the other wet... In our life is the same, destiny is the rain (the fact) and karma is the way to face that "rain" (how we deal with that fact). How much do you want the water to affect you? Actually, we can link all the processes of our life to the Nature time flow or its cycles. 

Sometimes we ask ourselves "why does this happen to me" or we want to anticipate the events that await us later on. Just like when a seed is planted in soil, for it to sprout and becomes a plant, it needs certain cares (same as our karma).

"As it happens in agriculture: the best seeds, a good soil and water are not enough if the sowing is not carried out during the appropriate season."


If we plant two seeds in the same soil, one next to the other, we cannot expect them to sprout at the same time. We understand that the elements of Nature have their own rhythm. We do not know when seeds will germinate. What we do know is that if I have planted a tomato seed, I only can expect tomatoes to sprout, nothing else. But the one thing we are certain about is that nothing will sprout if the seed does not receive the necessary and specific care. To survive, all of them need certain elements such as water, light, soil, sometimes even shadow... What is different for each one is how much of each they need. It is also important to know the appropriate time for sowing. We have to take into account how much and when. I cannot pretend to plant artichoke seeds without regard to the season, if it is winter or summer. The period is a fundamental factor. We must have patience and trust that seed, if it is care, will always sprout. We cannot control "when" (destiny), but we are responsible for "how" (karma). The plant will germinate whenever it has to... 

Continuing with same example above, we can understand the foundation of the philosophical idea that puts Karma before Destiny: Karma is what "I give" and fate is "what I receive". What depends on me is what "I give" not what "I receive". Therefore, focusing and giving more importance to expectations (what I think I am gonna receive) instead of what "I give" (both in physical and mental-intentional action) only generates frustrations and pressure.


If we consider life as a path, destiny would be those elements that inevitably appear along the way (both to facilitate and to hinder the journey); Karma would be everything that is happening, cause of my physical and mental actions along the way, and Dharma (one of the most important ideas of Hinduism) would be equivalent to "the right action or decision", to what is expected of me, the expectation about my decision. It is as if we were at a crossroad, where we are offered various alternatives (karma). Dharma would be the most appropriate path of all them, the right one. Not necessarily the one that benefits us individually, but the one that we must take. 
Thus, destiny is "what happens to me", Karma is "what I can do" and Dharma is "what I should do"... Dharma is what our soul (atman) expects us to do...

"Your destiny is not built by chance, but by the decisions you have made based on what the Universe has been offering you."

Image of the Ganges and its course in Rishikesh (India). There are two parts: On the left, the flow has a faster and more rocky current. On the right, the current becomes calmer and more gentle and pleasant. Our reaction and aptitude paddling or swimming in both parts would inevitably vary in each stage.

The following example has the river as its main element. If we understand the course of a river as life itself, we can conclude that, since it is born in the mountain until it ends merging with the sea or becomes a tributary, unless we change its course or force by means of certain mechanisms (dykes, walls, dams ...), that river will have a particular route. In a short distance, some rivers change their power or speed. Others do it with more space... This happens to us in the same way. From the moment we are born, we are provided with a natural energy (see Natal Chart or Kundali) that becomes our vital course, our personality, our impulses, our innate abilities that we can only modify mostly through consciousness, through awareness. Only thus can we change the course of our "river" by means of those mechanisms that can alter its flow and natural features. In addition, our lives are periods (see Dashas section) and if we understand which one we have had to lived, where we are going and in which stage we are, as well as knowing what is generating those situations or challenges, thus we can understand how to proceed to optimize every moment. If I am on the complicated part of the river, I will need to pay more attention and care, that is, my safety will depend mostly on me. However, in the quiet stage, I can be carried away by the circumstances and enjoy the journey...



We hardly ever stop to consider and understand our position in the immensity of the Cosmos that, while material beings we are insignificant, our singularity and complexity make us extraordinary and unique. At an astrophysical level, we only have 5% knowledge about the Universe as a whole. This fact can make us play down our constant predisposition to Ego (I and my existence as the center of the Universe) and thus understand our inevitable interrelation with it, with that whole, and mostly with the closest elements to Earth, the only place where, until now, we have the certainty that human beings can live.

According to Vedic Philosophy, all processes that occur in Space (macro level) are manifested in the same way in our Self, because "we are the Universe becoming aware of Itself" (micro level). Understanding our existence and relationship with the Cosmos as an upside down tree, whose roots are affected by the Universe as a whole, while the top of the tree is the Earth. The fruits are us and, therefore, always will be affected by the phenomena that are taking place in the universal context, especially those stars whose energy directly affects the Earth and, in the same way, to us. Whatever our path, we are all a tiny part of Everything.


In the following video, we can perfectly understand our amazing connection and unavoidable relationship with the Universe, as well as its similarities with the composition of our body. Macro and Micro Cosmos:


"The unexamined life is not worth living" (The Apology of Sócrates 399 BC.)...



The ultimate study of Vedic Astrology is the understanding of Karma.


Action-Reaction
Vedic Astrology is an essential tool to understand our karmas in life, and the best way to approach and transcend them is with the help of an expert in this field, the Vedic Astrologer, who will guide us to understand it clearly and avoid erroneous interpretations. On this Philosophy, all the people that exist are here because we still have Karma to perform. However, each person has a different and genuine karma. Therefore, the study of Karma must always be done individually. And, for this, Hindu Philosophy contemplates the Vedic Astrology Chart, which brings us closer to a greater and deeper knowledge about ourselves, about our existence, about who we are in essence ...

Another aspect to take into account from this Philosophy is that we are all interconnected and belong to a greater Whole. We are like drops of water from the same Ocean. That's why Vedic Astrology looks at the Universe as the root of the tree to which we belong. A Vedic astrologer, to decipher our Karma, studies those elements of the Universe whose energy directly affects the Earth and, therefore, us.



Planets, Zodiacs, Constellations and Nakshatras

This elements are:

1. Twelve groups of stars or constellations called ZODIACS that are arranged around the Solar System. They, somehow, surround our Solar System. Each zodiac has 30º. If we multiply it by 12 it gives us 360º, the degrees of a circumference. Thirty degrees is a lot in the Universe. It is not the same a planet is at the beginning, middle or end of  a certain zodiac. Its power would be affected by many different powers depending on its place. Therefore, Vedic Astrology takes into account the exact position where planets are located. Not only in which zodiac a planet is found but also, and mostly, where is the exact position of that planet within the zodiac.


2. Nine PLANETS of the Solar System: Vedic Astrology takes into account only those stars whose energy reaches the Earth and affect us. In this case there are nine: The Sun and the Moon are the most important. There are also the five planets closest to the Sun (Mercury, Mars, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn). The other two planets are new for us: they are called Rahu and Ketu. Science does not study them because they have no shape, they are called "shadow planets", but they are two essential energies that orbit the Moon and, since the Moon is the closest planet to Earth, Vedic Astrology includes them in its study. All these planets have a specific effect in every aspect directly related to our existence. Just as, for example, the Sun is the force that represents our internal "light", our soul or our father, the Moon is the energy responsible for managing our mental personality, our thoughts and emotions, as well as aspects related to our mother ... As the stars do not move, planets are called "containers of Karma", because they are the only elements able to creating energy combinations while orbiting.


3. Twenty-seven stars called NAKSHATRAS. These stars are spread throughout all zodiacs. Nakshatras are the elements that make Vedic astrology to be so accurate. The Hindu sacred number is 108 because each of these stars has four different types of energies called Padas (27 * 4 = 108!). This means that we depend on 108 energies. That is why the Hindu rosary ("mala") has 108 beads, to chant a mantra 108 times at least and thus not to exclude any of those energy. The Moon (mind) remains in each Nakshatra only for one day. Vedic Astrology study each person in an absolutely particular way. It is not generalized, but each case is studied meticulously. Therefore, this field of knowledge provides us with such precise information, capable of even providing specific dates in which a significant energy change will take place (see "Dasha") and, therefore, a transformation. The astrologer not only checks in which zodiac a particular planet is placed, but where in that zodiac is located and which is the nakshatra that most affects it.

This figure shows the Earth in the center, the 12 zodiacs and their symbols, and the 27 nakshatras. Planets move around them

Imagine zodiacs are houses, planets would be the tenants of those houses and Nakshtras would be the rooms of the house. It is not the same to say "I am in my house" than to say "Inside my house, I am in the living room or in the bedroom". Likewise, in the same room, for example in the kitchen, it is not the same if "I am cooking" or if "I am eating" ... The knowledge of the nakshatras helps us to understand our existence in a much more precise way. As with planets, the energy of a house changes markedly holding different tenants...

Vedic Astrology (Jyotish) is a very complex and complete science. In addition to the main information contained in the Natal Chart, the study of Jyotish takes into account elements that provide a much deeper and more accurate view of our life experiences, such as planetary transits (planetary situation at a given moment, especially when a given planet change zodiac and its influence in real time), Nakshatras (27 stars distributed in the 12 zodiacs), Dashas (planetary periods) or divisional charts (to refine the interpretations of the Natal Chart).



With these elements the Natal Chart is made based on the exact disposition of them at the moment you were born, at the exact moment in which you "saw the light from the very first time". The Natal Chart is like your "barcode" that identifies you in a vital way or the deepest mirror in which you can look at yourself. The Natal Chart deciphers all the energies with which we are born and which create our natural tendency or predispotion, our vital or life energy. Changing or reversing them is only possible mainly through awareness, although there are other resources that can help us (see Remedies part). The Natal Chart is the starting point of our existence and it integrates all the components of our life, everything that is directly related to us, "the seed of our plant".


"You are not the one who decides, it is Nature who gives you opportunities and you take advantage of them or not". 

Representation of the twelve zodiacs (houses) and the aspects of our life that are affected by them, by the planets they contain (where the planets were placed when you were born) and those planets whose energy directly influences them as well. The Natal Chart begins with the zodiac assignment of our Ascendant that is placed in the first box "Body & life in general". From there, the rest of the information in the Astral Chart is revealed.

Moon, Ascendant and Sun: The three main elements of a Natal Chart

Vedic Astrology holds that we are such complex beings that we need different elements that manage the most important aspects of our existence. The most important elements of the Natal Chart are three:

ASCENDANT: It was the eastern zodiac at the moment of your birth. The Ascendant gives us information about our primary personality in general, strengths, weaknesses, physique and, especially, our health. All zodiacs have a planet that manages the energy of that zodiac. Therefore, the planet of the Ascendant and its situation at the time of your birth are essential to understand these personal aspects. The Ascendant is the exact point from which all the information contained in your Vedic Astral Chart begins. The Sun rises in the East and sets in the West, and with it all the planets and zodiacs. That is why, since Antiquity, in most of ancient philosophies the East has been considered the starting point, the birth, the beginning of life. The Ascendant is the first energetic imprint that we get, the packaging with which we introduce ourselves to the world and the circumstances that we attract by destiny. At birth, the Sun will be in a zodiac sign but the Ascendant will usually point to another.

*The Ascendant changes the zodiac only every 2 hours. Therefore, it completes the twelve zodiacs in about 1 day.



MOON ZODIAC: The Moon in Hinduism symbolizes the mind, therefore, the zodiac where the Moon was placed when you were born will be the energy that shapes your mental personality: thoughts and emotions.



Unlike Western Astrology which gives preference to the solar zodiac, Vedic Astrology puts the Moon before the Sun for the following reasons:
  • The Sun is the power of the Soul and the Moon represents our the Mind. Theoretically, the Sun is more important. However, for practical reasons, the Moon (mind) is the element of our being that we must understand and manage to a greater extent. Our thoughts and intentions become action in one way or another and, therefore, that action generates a specific karma ... And karma shapes our Destiny.
  • It is useless to focus on the soul if you first do not understand your mind and work on it. This is the only way to start "opening doors" inward... towards our essential being, and the mind is our "wall". The Sun gives us more light, but the Moon is closer. We can not access the Sun if we do not first understand what affects us firstly: the mind.
  • Vedic Astrology studies, above all others, the energy of the Moon, which essentially symbolizes our emotional composition, instincts, behavior, temperament, interests, dislikes and, in general, the intrinsic qualities of our mind  (natural and essential). It also represents mental health and the disposition of our mind to acquire stillness and balance, naturally. *Different is that the person develops all these qualities throughout his/her life through consciousness (awareness) and through internal work (introspection). The Vedic Chart informs us about our natural tendency (destiny), but that order can be modified through the efforts we make to evolve (karma). For example, you may have been born with a lunar energy that causes an unstable mental disposition. However, you may have consciously worked throughout your life to reverse that condition and currently have greater control over your mental processes at the intellectual and /or emotional level.
  • The Sun remains in a zodiac for about 30 days. So, although it is easier to determine the personality of someone through solar astrology, being this so generic is not the most accurate method. On the other hand, the Moon only stays about 2.5 days in each zodiac.
  • Due to its fast transitions and dynamic and volatile character, the Moon affects our life more closely than any other planet. Therefore, the Vedic approach of the astrological study, which prioritizes the influence of the Moon (mind) over the Sun, allows us to understand more closely the impact of physical, psychological and supernatural influences on our mind.
  • The Moon is the closest planet to the Earth and its cycles of 28 days of rotation around the Earth are often associated with that of menstruation, the mother and, ultimately, with the feminine energy.
*The Moon changes the zodiac every two and a half days. Therefore, it completes the twelve zodiacs in about one month.

SUN ZODIAC: In which zodiac was the Sun at the time of your birth. The Sun symbolizes the energy of the soul, the light that we project from within (willpower, stamina, resistance to work, charisma, self-esteem, confidence, leadership skills, ego...), and it is also related to our father. It helps us to understand which are the needs our soul has to evolve based on the limitations, and the sign where Sun was exactly placed where we were born, tell us about the weaknesses or strengths of our soul and what we need to improve throughout this life.

* The Sun changes zodiac every month. Therefore, it completes the twelve zodiacs in in about one year.



Therefore, your personality or existence cannot be reduced to a single zodiac, as we usually attribute in the West when we describe ourselves as "I am Taurus", "My sister is Sagittarius" or "I get along very well with Leo `people"... We cannot understand our vital or natural processes based on a single pure energy. Vedic astrology is so extraordinarily complex that it treats each individual in an absolutely particular way. We have made uo of many energies. You can say that you are drinking "Chai" (Indian-style tea), but chai is not made of a single ingredient: it has cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, sugar, tea, milk ... each person makes it in a different way and adding different amounts of each one. Therefore, it will always have different nuances, even integrating the same substances.



The complete cycle lasts 120 years
The second part of the Vedic Astral Chart consists of the knowledge of the DASHAS or periods of our life. Obviously you cannot know deeply every single one. It depends on what moment you want to understand or analyze ... Dashas are the periods of our lives led by the energy of one of those nine planets (planetary periods). These periods are very long: the smallest one is that of Sun and lasts 6 years and the longest is that of Venus and it last 20 years. If we add all the years in which each of these nine planets is activated as main planet, it gives a total of 120 years that forms a complete circle. Most of us don´t live that long, and therefore cannot complete the entire circle.
Each main Dasha (Mahadasha), in turn, is divided into more subtle fractions. Therefore, under the main planet, the 9 planets in second order are combined again (Antardasha). All of us follow the same direction of the ring (after Sun is Moon, the Mars and so on…). What is different to everyone is in which moment of the cycle we are born and therefore in which part of the cycle we start our journey in this life… Knowing which energies are activated, the astrologer can understand in which fields of our life are going to affect and if they are going to do so in a positive or negative way…  
Main dashas and their sequence

Main periods (Mahadasha) and their frequency


"Spirituality does not mean controlling nature; means aligning with her "...



There is no single answer to this question. Even so, the Vedic Astrology Chart is not consulted only once in a lifetime. Some people then ask that "if the content of the Chart does not change, then why should they check it more than once?" Somehow they are right. The information of the Chart is always the same . However, it is so immense, precise and profound, that it is impossible to understand everything in just one session. Not even in several. It is a gradual, progressive therapy, where information, to become a beneficial and effective component, must be clearly understood and integrated into our consciousness and thus serve as guides to optimize our existence and its "raison d'être". If we imagine our Astral Chart as a huge wardrobe, we can understand that, in a session, we can hardly select a "piece" of its interior and analyze it, but it is impossible to study them all. Our life, with all its nuances and combinations, is very complex, and studying and understanding it requires a very deep analysis and attention. There are mainly five reasons to consult the Vedic Astral Chart:

  • General Vedic Astrology Chart: It is recommended in the first session to have a global vision and a broader understanding of all the elements that make up the study of our Vedic Astrology Chart at a general level: Natal Chart (Kundali), Dashas, Transits ...
  • Dashas (main periods of our life): Whenever there is a change of Mahadasha (main planet) or Antardasha (secondary planet). Whenever we are going to enter a new life cycle, in which new energies are activated to offer us new opportunities and challenges. Analyzing, studying and understanding them to optimize that period of our life, understanding what we can develop and when, as well as what we should avoid.
  • Muhurta (choosing the best option at the right time):  Whenever we have doubts about choosing between several options as well as when to do or avoid something. What to do, when to do it or how to do it are important questions. Just as in the time of planting, it is essential to choose the type of soil, the amount of water and light seed or plant will receive, but it is just as important to know which season is the most appropriate. If it's a tomato seed, tomatoes will surely sprout. What we do not know is when it will sprout, how it will grow, how long it will last the process, how many fruits it will give and for how long ... As with all the elements of Nature, we can also understand when is the best moment and which choice is more favorable. This consultation can be done for any area of our life and helps us to choose the right time for the right event, so that we get minimum obstruction to achieve the best results. 
  • Varshphal (Annual Horoscope):  The Varshaphala predicts how the individual's year is going to be. This consultation is made on the date of our birthday. In Vedic Astrology, the Annual Horoscope is made for one year, when the Sun has traveled the twelve zodiacs (360º) and returns to the same sign and degree as that of our natal position, the exact location Sun was when we were born. It is interpreted to forecast the events and changes expected during that specific year, so that the information is obtained in a more detailed and accurate way by focusing on a specific period of time. It helps maximize strengths and cope with difficult periods with a more thorough annual study. 
  • Partner compatibility: This consultation is very interesting and useful. Relationships are, without a doubt, one of the most important and profound challenges that most human beings use to face. In this case, the study is generated to compare the two charts and analyze the compatibility, whether for an existing relationship or a new or potential one. It is not about finding out if that person is or is not suitable for us, because that depends more on our destiny. It is like a shadow. There are moments that are not beneficial and we face difficulties and challenges, also on the sentimental level. If, at that moment, the decision is made to leave the current relationship, it is more likely that, if we find someone else, the same situation will happen again, as if it were that "shadow" from which we can not escape. The same would happen in the case of not having a partner at that moment in which our active or natural energies make it difficult for us to progress in this field of life. The astrologer can know which moments will positively boost the development in the sentimental field and which ones will be more difficult and, therefore, we should remain calm, take it easy and act without too many expectations. More than knowing if "that person is suitable for me", the foundation of the Vedic study of relationship compatibility focuses on understanding what natural energies define both of them, how they can be positively complemented,  and how to avoid harming each other, understanding our life processes and those of our partner. According to this Philosophy, people who appear in our lives and challenge our existence do so because they owe us something or because we have to learn something from that person. Destiny is responsible, as if it were a magnetic force, to bring people to our lives based on the natural energy that we have for life (studied in birth chart) or the energies that are active at a given time  (dashas). That is to say, this analysis helps us to deepen and improve the quality of our relationships by calming the differences and celebrating the connections that unite us. Knowing the essence of our partner, her/his true personality (not the one that shows us or the one we interpret, but the one that characterizes her/him in a more genuine, the real way), as well as the potential moments in which her/his life can face certain challenges and we must understand them, accept them and address them.


No es la Carta con la que se nace, sino la forma en que se tratan los retos o cirscunstancias que se van planetando a lo largo de la vida lo que es más importante. Es decir, no es el qué (Destino) sino el cómo (karma). Igual que con el ejemplo de la lluvia, no es útil que te digan que mañana va a llover si cuando sales a la calle no usas paraguas. Finally, it is important to consider the remedies, that is, what we can do to harmonize the energies on which we depend. The remedies are an integral part of Vedic Astrology. It is not about the Chart with which we are born, but the way in which we face and address the challenges or circumstances that are posed throughout our life. That is more important. Therefore, it is not the "what" (Destiny) but the "how" (karma). As with the example of rain, it is not useful to be told that "tomorrow it will rain" if you do not use an umbrella when you are going out.

Necesitamos que haya oscuridad para poder apreciarlos. Esto significa que, igual de importante es disminuir la presión de las energías que nos afectan negativamente como reducir el poder de ciertas energías que, aunque postivas, en gran cantidad perjudican al resto. Por ello, es tan importante y útil conocer en cada momento la manera más óptima de equilibrar nuestro sistema de energías, es decir, qué debo de hacer o evitar. Y solo un astrólogo experto puede conocer el procedimiento. More important than getting the information, is integrating and understanding it. Think of the Sun. Its energy can be felt through light and heat, but when you are in a closed room, you cannot benefit from it and all you see is darkness. You need to open the blinds and the windows so that the energy and light come in. Similarly, on a very clear day, when the sun shines with all its brightness, it is not possible to see any other planet at a glance. We need darkness. This means that, equally important are both to decrease the pressure of energies that negatively affect us and reducing the power of certain energies that, although postive, in large quantities harm the rest of energies. That is why it is so important and useful to know at each moment the most optimal way to balance our energy system, that is, "what I should do or avoid". And this can be only done by an expert astrologer who deeply know the procedure.

Vedic knowledge teaches that both our inner Self (jivatman) and our higher Self (paramatman) are parts of the same -atman-, and transcend time and karma. But to reach it, to raise and unite our soul with that Supreme All (that is the real meaning of term "Yoga"), we must harmonize and balance the parts that connects us with the world (body and mind). For this, we have to understand our karmas, not only seek personal happiness based on mental desires or hopes (kama and artha), but the needs of our soul (dharma). All remedies have a sense for us to reach that state, but we need to combine them with a deeper introspection to know our true nature and use such methods according to an inner knowledge.

A key aspect to keep in mind is that when you Chart is analyzed, we are not doing it to understand the planets and their influence from "up there", but to understand the light and power they emitted in the exact moment you were born and got the universal energy for the very first time, as independent beings. That light reaches us to stay with us forever. Threrefore, it means how much and which energy and power we get and absorb at the precise moment of our birth from each planet. That intensity of each planet with which we are affected, although determined by destiny, can be modified through Karma. The astrologer advises us which energies we have to strengthen and which ones to weaken, as well as to understand when it is the right time to do so and what tools to use. Therefore, it is advised not to take decisions individually without the approval and guidance of an astrologer, because our interpretations may be wrong and we can perform remedies whose effect is counterproductive and we do not obtain the expected results or even end up harming us.

The most important of all remedies is always to become aware of the events of our life and, secondly, to work with the mental aspects to quiet and balance our thoughts and emotions, either by our personality or natural tendency or by the Dasha or period in which certain energies affect us...

In addition to the above, the astrologer also suggests several tools to work with these energies, increasing the power of those that benefit us and reducing those that harm us (through mantras, rituals, exercises, pranayama, routines, karma yoga, gems ...). It's like an expert's recipe based on the diagnosis, depending on what we should strengthen and what we have to weaken.

We must accept with responsibility all those commitments that our soul has assumed (destiny), learning what we couldn´t, did not want, or simply did not know before (karma). It is not about ignoring or avoiding those processes, but about optimizing our existence based on the opportunities that are being presented to us. It is not about "what have I done to make something like this happen to me?". The fact is that we are already here, existing and experiencing the cycle of life and we are still within it (Samsara). Therefore, it means that we still have commitments and our soul is still examininig and challenging us. and the only possible way is through Dharma (the right action).

Pasamos de ser meros espectadores pasivos a jugadores activos.
Vedic Astrology, and ultimately our Astrology Chart, helps us to understand our existence as a game called "Lila" or "Divine Game". Imagine that game as a soccer match. Our team has nine players (navgrahas or nine planets). We must also take into account in which stadium is being played (zodiac), if it is more or less beneficial for the players. Moreover, the conditions in which the match takes place are important (such as meteorology) or the power with which players can play (how strengthened or weakened these planets are). As with a team, not all players are on the pitch, although all of them are important. Some of them are on the bench (it is not their turn yet) and others are warming up before entering the playing area. All of them are important since all are part of the team. However, we are paying more attention to the ones playing actively in the field and, secondly, those who are about to leave or enter. The captain rotates through cycles of specific years (Dashas). Each player has a different role. Generally, we usually watch our own "game" from the stands, from our seat, enjoying good times and suffering the bad ones. Thus, we let ourselves be carried away by the circumstances, assuming that the control of them does not depend on us. However, the Vedic Astrology Chart helps us to know which players (planets) are in the field (are activated), what their tasks are and thus, we can take control of our game by entering the playing field and competing with them. We go from being mere passive bystanders to become active players.



"All life is the result of energy and thus, we have a choice as to what energy we use in what we do, say and how we think".
