This book is for those interested in Yoga and Vedic / Indian principles and how to see those Universal truths through Vedic Astrology. Ponder this, right now you are on a rock moving close to 70,000 miles per hour around a huge ball of fire. This has been happening for 4.5 billion years. This is where astrological wisdom should begin. The ancient Indian’s knew this, and developed many systems of living that shows how spirit takes form and how to evolve consciousness within that. An understanding of both Yoga and Indian principles is essential if one is to master VEDIC Astrology. This book first unpacks the core tenets of Indian / Yoga philosophy (called Samkya philosphy), then connects those teachings to the practice of Vedic astrology. This is accomplished by first analyzing the history of Indian literature (Vedas, Upanishads, Puranas, etc.). Next, that history is traced to the 2 main Yogic texts, the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Then those those practices are woven together / cross referenced through the principles of Samkya philosphy (Gunas, elements, Kosha, Chakras, Karma). Only then are the essentials of Vedic astrology explored – Planets, Signs, Houses, Nakshatras, Aspects, Harmonic Charts and more. This book is also the basic manual for the American Academy of Vedic Art and Science Level I Certification Course.
