Jyotisha (Astrology) is the pure science based on astronomy. It is a pure science which deals with study of the position of planets with respect to the Earth and their effects on all living beings. As the earth is a member of solar system, the magnetic field and electrical field of other planets affect the earth and also the life on the earth.
It is not just a science, it is a Divine science as all the planets and constellations are not seen just as mere physical entities but as they are influencing the life on the earth, they are revered as deities. Therefore, in India the planets are also worshipped. The Sun is regarded as the divine father, Surya Narayana and the earth is revered as divine mother, ‘Bhoo Devi’, the wife of Narayana. The other planets being members of solar system and having similar capacity of influencing the life on the earth are also worshipped as deities. This subject is therefore rightly termed as Astrology as it studies the impact of the stars and planets to the life on the earth. The planets are not just the benefactor of good and bad, instead their position in horoscope indicates our past deeds and consequently reaped results.
“Astrology guides us how our life will be, but doesn't change our life according to our needs and desires. It helps us to accept our life and to live in peace and to a certain extent. It helps us neutralize our negative karma of past life, by making us realize of their consequence, and make us indulge in good karma in the present life. Even though astrology predicts the most part of our lives, freewill also plays its own role in our life decisions.” - Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
