Influence of Stars and Planets
Stars and planets, the objects of outer Space (Universe), are responsible for the programming of your subconscious mind at Manomaya Kosha. Manomaya Kosha creates the life you are experiencing now. Your purpose in life, goals, choices, inborn habits, inclinations of mind, reference points of happiness and pain, and philosophy of how you lead your life is some of that programming, among many more.
The movement of the stars and planets in their respective trajectories acts as a Cosmic Clock for timing the events in your life and programming your subconscious mind. The man understood this secret 12000 years ago. Since then, he has been studying stars, planets, and their movements to understand the core (or actual) purpose of his being on this planet. Studying stars, planets, and their movements have helped him manifest his core desire and experience eternal joy by focusing his attention and energies on his ‘true purpose only.
Man has understood this fact very well that the cause of misery and pain lies in deviation from his core purpose. And to keep himself aligned, man has been observing the stars for ages. That is also how the Hindu logical System (‘Jyotish‘) was initiated.
The word ‘Jyotish‘ means “Illuminated Divine Lights Showing the True Path”. The term ‘Religion’ means “Getting Aligned Again”. In Hindu logy, the Moon stands for the subconscious mind. Mercury stands for the ordinary conscious mind, with analytical and reasoning faculties. Only in Hindu Astrology is the timing of events worked out from a position of the Moon at birth time. When the Moon is studied for seconds, minutes and degrees (120° for 120 years), a specific combination of planets gives accurate timing of events. This calculation goes up to an hour’s accuracy for an event in one’s life. This system is known as the 120-year situation method (Vimshottari Dasha Padhhati), given by eminent Hindu Astrologer Sage Parashar In the 5th Century B.C.
Hindu mystics decoded the mystery of life thousands of years ago. The most amazing part is that they mathematically derived an individual’s evolution process based on planetary positions at birth, their transits and their programming for the sub-conscious mind. More into this understanding is Chakras’s working evolution with the planets’ role in an individual’s birth chart. In applying PanchVastu, the birth chart is studied from this angle. The design of the building is then decided. Each horoscope is unique, with its purpose on the planet. Even Greeks in the past studied horoscopes with this thought in mind. So that by defining one’s purpose, structures can be made to perform the desired function.
