  • Leveraging conductive properties of Copper, Gold, Silver, and Iron during space energy analysis to identify negative ion buildups and blocked energy flows.
  • Metallic vastu items exchange electrochemical charges to neutralize negative energies and strengthen positive wavelengths.
  • Linkage of metals to cosmic vehicles as per astrology is tapped for channeling health, prosperity energy flows.
  • Strategic metal adjunct placement restores elemental equilibrium within space energy grids.
  • Natural EM radiation is nullified by specific metallic remedies guarding against tech-linked energetic distortions.
  • Vastu sciences give importance to selective metals and positioning for mitigating negative forces and environmental disorder thereby inviting financial stability, domestic harmony, and prosperity.

The goal is to tap into scientific material attributes of metals that give them energy conduction, radiation shielding, and electrochemical properties that can interface with subtle environmental energies to remedy negativity and enhance positivity for overall holistic balance.

Where did this specialized architectural wisdom originate in India’s long history? 

Vastu Shastra’s roots trace back to the Stapatya Veda – an Upaveda or supplementary section of the Atharvaveda estimated to have been composed around 500-100 BCE. This metaphysical doctrine laid the platform for a vision of structural design and town planning in complete synergy with the laws of nature.

Over millennia, the tenets of Stapatya Veda expanded into definite principles codified as Vastu Shastras or canons. These contain guidelines customized to local conditions across India’s diverse climates considering orientation, topography, and building materials suggesting a balanced spatial blueprint.

In Hindu belief, Vastu is the deity that presides over the dwelling place. Vastu is closely associated with the creative energy that brings order, prosperity, and positivity to living spaces.

According to traditional Hindu scriptures, the Vastu Purusha was one of the many divine beings created by Brahma to bring auspicious energies to homes and workspaces designed based on Vastu Shastra principles.

The Vastu Purusha is said to lie on the plot of land for which a building is to be constructed, with the head in the northeast direction. The house or building space is designed to allow the Vastu Purusha to breathe and move within it unobstructed. Obstructing the Vastu Purusha is believed to hamper prosperity.

As per Hindu beliefs, appeasing the Vastu deity before construction begins on a plot of land is very important. There are also specific days prescribed for beginning the Vastu puja which depends on the astrological configurations of the Sun, Moon, and Jupiter.

Days, when these planets occupy beneficial positions relative to each other as per Vedic Astrology, are considered auspicious for commencing activities like land purification and Vastu puja to invoke the blessings of gods as well as the Vastu Purusha. These muhurats ensure a prosperous foundation is laid to establish positive energy alignment for the space as per Vastu.

Vastu puja done on Vastu-compliant days assures divine blessings from the presiding deity Vastu Purusha, paving the way for fortune, well-being, and harmony.

Vastu shastra (or vastu) is an ancient Indian system of architecture and design that originated during the Vedic period. It is based on the belief that the laws of nature and energy need to be incorporated into the design and layout of buildings and spaces. Properly aligned structures enable balanced energy flow.

  • Vastu links the astrological angles, location vectors, airflow, and spatial geometry of structures with well-being, prosperity, and harmony with the physical environment.
  • The principles of Vastu align home and workspace construction with directional alignments (north, south, east, west), along with the five elements (earth, water, fire, air, and space).
  • Getting the orientations, layouts, and geometric patterns right as per Vastu enhances positive energy flows and benefits the occupants.
  • Specific Vastu tips relate to the shape and direction of land, entry gates, room locations, placements of doors, windows, furniture, appliances, colors, and lighting among other things.
  • Vastu is applied in architectural planning, building infrastructure, office spaces housing projects, and city planning to leverage natural energies optimally.
  • It aims to create structures and spaces that are synergistic and harmonious with nature for the peace, well-being, and prosperity of its residents or occupants.

Vastu combines metaphysical cosmology, sacred geometry, directional alignments, and ancient Hindu beliefs to optimize built spaces and balance energy fields through design.

  • Vastu Shastra is the science of spatial design, layout, and architecture in harmony with the laws of nature. It depends on astrology to determine auspicious timing and alignments based on the positions of the Sun, Moon, planets, stars, etc.
  • In contrast, Vedic astrology (Jyotisha) studies the celestial bodies’ movements to analyze the influence of planets and stars on human lives as well as to predict events and destinies.
  • While Vedic astrology can indicate general positive and negative energetic directions as per an individual’s birth chart, Vastu provides micro-level insights to optimize the spatial orientations within a property itself.
  • However, there is an interdependence between the two ancient sciences – Vedic astrology helps determine the muhurat (auspicious timing) for Vastu rituals, groundbreaking and beginning construction based on planets’ positions.
  • Similarly, Vastu aims to neutralize planetary afflictions indicated in one’s horoscope through enhancements to strengthen the favorable energies and elements within buildings.

Together, they create built environments that are optimized for human habitation and complementary to an individual’s personal destiny patterns.

Both share some common concepts and principles as systems of energy design and space planning:

  • Orientation – Both recommend optimal orientation and layouts based on cardinal directions, favoring East-facing structures to harmonize with sunrise.
  • Elements – The five elements (earth, water, fire, air, space) find emphasis in Vastu and Feng Shui as promoting balance through design.
  • The flow of Chi & Prana – Feng Shui’s Chi and Vastu’s Prana refer to the vital energy circulations that should be unobstructed within spaces.
  • Auspiciousness – Precise geometric patterns, ratios, degrees and locations determined using astrology/astronomy ensure spaces capture cosmic “favorability”.
  • Flaws – Small flaws are amplified over time so systems offer remedies – Vastu prescribes yantras & gems while Feng Shui uses cures like mirrors to counter deficiencies.
  • Purpose – They share the common motivation of harmonizing human-made structures with nature for health, prosperity, and good fortune.

The difference is mainly cultural origins & symbolism – Vastu has an astrological emphasis with links to Hindu gods and mythology while Feng Shui is more numerology/element focused with Chinese symbolisms. But the core tenets resonate. Together they offer comprehensive and complementary frameworks for holistic, sustainable spatial design.

Destiny Written in the Heavens: The Enlightened Sages Who Shaped Vedic Astrology's Principles and Practices

Who invented Vedic astrology?

Vedic astrology

Indian astronomy and astrology developed together. The earliest treatise on Jyotisha, the Bhrigu Samhita, was compiled by the sage Bhrigu during the Vedic era. The sage Bhirgu is also called the ‘Father of Hindu Astrology’, and is one of the venerated Saptarishi or seven Vedic sages.

Vedic astrology, known as Jyotish in Sanskrit meaning “inner light”, originated in ancient India over 3,000 years ago. It is a system that studies how celestial bodies like the planets and stars affect human lives. Vedic astrology is based on the concept of karma and the belief that the planetary energies at the exact time and place of birth represent one’s destiny and soul’s purpose. The Vedic horoscope is a map of the cosmos that reveals our past karma, as Paramhansa Yogananda expressed, showing the “unalterable past and its probable future results.

The Vedic Zodiac and How Planetary Movements Shape Karma and Fate:

” By examining the planetary alignments in the natal chart, Vedic astrologers can provide insight into karmic patterns, life challenges, strengths, and opportunities for self-actualization. Vedic astrology aims to illuminate the inner light and guide individuals to fulfill their dharma or divine life purpose. This ancient practice remains relevant today as a tool for greater self-understanding and realizing one’s highest potential.

Dubbed also as the “science of fate,” astrology is used to understand all aspects of life, including the future success of a particular endeavor, like marriage, moving into a new home, or a business venture. In the past, it was even used as a way of predicting the outcomes of battles in war, or a particular governmental decision. As a result, rulers would often employ astrologers to provide them better insight as to how they could best run their kingdoms.

The subsystems within Vedic astrology:

  • Parashara Astrology – The most commonly used branch, based on teachings of the sage Parashara. Provides interpretation of the birth chart and planetary periods.
  • Jaimini Astrology – Provides a different approach to chart interpretation, using karaka (significator) schemes and darshana (viewpoint) systems. Focuses more on career and outcomes.
  • Tajika Astrology – Originated from Persian and Arabic astrology, emphasizes annual charts and shorter-term predictions. Uses techniques like annual solar returns.
  • Nadi Astrology – Focuses on predicting life events and destiny through nadi leaf readings. Leaves are said to be inscribed with past, present and future lives.
  • Prasna Astrology – Answers specific questions through horary charts cast for the exact time and place the question was asked.
  • Mundane Astrology – Astrology applied to forecasting world events, financial markets, weather patterns and natural disasters.
  • Medical Astrology – Branch focused on assessing health, diagnoses and timing of treatments based on astrological charts and placements.

So some major branches analyze birth charts, some focus more on prediction and some apply astrology to specific areas like health, finance and world events. But Parashara astrology is considered the core system of chart interpretation.

How we are affected by the planets:

The graha in Vedic astrology and their spiritual significance:

The navagrahas or nine planetary influences in Vedic astrology are Surya (Sun), Chandra (Moon), Mangala (Mars), Budha (Mercury), Brihaspati (Jupiter), Shukra (Venus), Shani (Saturn), Rahu and Ketu.

Each graha governs particular domains of life. For example, the Sun represents the soul, power and authority, the Moon signifies the mind and emotions, Mercury relates to communication and intellect, and so on.

The grahas are believed to be divine cosmic forces that distribute karma. 

Their movements help orchestrate the fate and experiences we are destined to undergo in alignment with our past karmic actions and choices.

When grahas are weakly positioned in the birth chart, they can bring struggles and obstacles in their respective domains. For instance, a poorly placed Venus can cause problems in relationships and marriage. However, from a spiritual view, these troubles are not punishments but rather opportunities for learning and overcoming the ego.

The grahas’ presiding deities can be propitiated through ritual worship or puja. This is believed to mitigate negative karma and shift the grahas into a more favorable stance. However, the ultimate aim is to view difficulties as chances to spiritually progress and mature.

Each graha thus represents a teacher of karmic lessons assigned to steer the soul toward realizing divine truth – that lasting joy comes from selflessness, compassion and unity with the Divine. All experiences, pleasant or painful, serve the soul’s evolution toward moksha or liberation from the cycle of birth and rebirth.

The key differences between Vedic and Western astrology:

  • Vedic astrology uses the sidereal zodiac which accounts for the precession of the equinoxes, while Western astrology uses the tropical zodiac which is fixed to the seasons.
  • This causes a shift in the dates of the zodiac signs – in Vedic astrology the signs occur at different times of year compared to the Western system.
  • Vedic astrology considers the positions of the constellations against the backdrop of the entire galaxy, whereas Western astrology focuses more on the immediate solar system.
  • Vedic astrology is more “lunar” – giving importance to the moon’s movements and lunar mansions, while Western astrology is more “solar” centered around the sun.
  • Vedic astrology emphasizes karma, dharma and the soul’s journey, while Western astrology has a more psychological approach interpreting how celestial bodies affect personality.
  • Vedic astrology aims to reveal one’s life path and destiny, while Western astrology focuses on personality analysis and predictions for the future.

In summary, While sharing some basic principles, Vedic and Western astrology diverge significantly in their approaches. Vedic astrology utilizes a sidereal perspective focused on the soul’s journey and revealing one’s karma, dharma and destiny. Its vision is more cosmological and philosophical. Western astrology employs a fixed tropical zodiac to psychologically analyze personality and predict events. For seekers of spiritual growth and karmic insights, Vedic astrology provides time-tested wisdom rooted in Hindu traditions. Western astrology offers practical guidance for relationships and affairs. Though differing in methodology, both systems ultimately aim to impart greater self-knowledge and fulfillment.
