Astrology and Science
Astrology is Jyotish means light
Astrology has originated from Vedas (the oldest Hindu books of
knowledge) and flourished in ancient India, lakhs of years ago. Its
roots cannot be traced, but it was discussed and much regarded by all
the great Indian seers like Parashara, Jaimini and others. Astrology is
referred to as ‘Jyotish’ , which means ‘related to Light’. But
what is light?
The word light is indicative of knowledge, and darkness is a symbol of
ignorance. Astrology lights the path of human beings and provides
better guidance in molding their future.
We know that Sun is the principal source of light and heat. The rays of
Sun fall on plants and produce food in them by ‘photosynthesis’, which
is highly desirable for any plant to grow. Sun is a factor for the
entire vegetation to grow on this earth and the animals and human
beings are depending on it. Then , is there any surprise if Sun is
called ‘soul’ of the universe ? Sun is also referred to as
the Omnipotent. Chakshu means eyes. With eyes we can be in light.
Without eyes we will be in darkness. Hence, Greeks and Egyptians called
Sun as god of Astrology.
Light also refers to electro-magnetic waves or energies which are
spread all over the world. There are cosmic rays which always penetrate
into our earth’s atmosphere and cause disturbances in pressure and
temperature on earth. Aeronomy says that tidal ways, floods and
cyclones on earth are nothing but effects of reactions between various
nuclear particles on the surface of Sun. So Light is most significant
in this world.
There is another type of light, the light coming from various planets.
This light is called radiation. This radiation always carries different
types of energies. This light which comes from various planets and
constellations continuously fall on all living beings on earth, since
their birth till their death. We know that human brain and nervous
system is a thousand times more sensitive than a photographic film. If
we expose the photographic film to Sun, it gets spoiled immediately.
Then why can’t we accept that the human brain and the nervous are also
affected by Sun rays? We are all bathing continuously in an array of
different radiations coming from different celestial bodies, and why
can’t we say that those radiations will definitely affect our lives?

According to Dr. Percy Seymour [chartered member of the Institute of
Physics and Fellow member of the Royal Astronomical Society, Director
of the William Day Planetarium and principal lecturer in astronomy at
the University of Plymouth], the solar magnetic wind of Sun is
influenced by other planets which in turn leads to fluctuations in the
earth’s magnetic field. Jane Blizard’s work for NASA showed evidence
for heliocentric planetary conjunctions, oppositions, and certain 90°
alignments giving rise to violent solar disturbances. Due to this, the
fluctuations in the earth’s magnetic field will change from 0.0ci to
2.0ci (ci - International magnetic character figure), as noted by
geophysicists. This means earth’s magnetism will change depending on
disturbances caused by solar magnetic wind. This change in earth’s
magnetism will bring changes in human beings - as observed by Professor
Yves Rocard [Laboratory Director of Physics at the Ecole normale
superieure in Paris]. Rocard devoted 30 years of his life to the study
of the sensitivity of humans to magnetism. He detected reception sites
in human body at the arches of the eyebrows, at the back of the skull,
at the hollows of the knees, near shoulder blades and under heels.
These parts are highly sensitive to magnetism. Scientists also found
magnetite in human brain. Thus we can prove that the entire human body
responds to planetary influences.
Radiations, light, magnetic fields, gravity etc., from different
planets and constellations act upon human beings’ body and mind and
there by modify the way they take decisions and thus influence their
future – certainly a study is needed to establish this fact, and
Astrology does this.
Mr. Arnold Meyer of the British Association for the Advancement of
Science, observes that “when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction
they are both concentrating their forces on the same part of the globe
at the same time; this accounts for the abnormal conditions... This
conjunction does definitely affect a child born during conditions of
We know the oceanic waves rise to their zenith on full moon days, and
they will become calm on new moon days. This is due to electro-magnetic
attraction of Moon on water. When the human being’s body has 65% water
content, why there will not be any affect of Moon on him?
A study conducted from 1957 to 1968 in Britain revealed that most of
the murders are recorded on full moon days only, thus Moon is
influencing some people to lose their mental balance.
Kraft published his ‘Astro-physiologie’ in 1928. There he offers a list
of 72 persons who were born at about the same time. All these died at
the same age and in a similar way. This cannot be dismissed as mere
Donald A. Bradley published an important work called ‘Profession and
Birthdate’. It is a statistical analysis of the planetary positions
found at the time of birth of 2492 eminent clergymen. He has proved
beyond doubt that the planetary positions greatly influence the
profession of people.
Varahamihira, Aryabhatta, Bhaskara, Kalyana Varma etc… practiced
Astrology along with Astronomy. Varahamihira calculated the distances
of planets and gave accurate description of various constellations in
the sky in his great work ‘BrihatSamhita’. Aristotle wrote a paper on
Palmistry in 350 B.C., in which he clearly describes a lot of subject
related to lines of palm.
Even the scientists like Copernicus,
Tychobrahe, Kepler, Galileo and Newton have done a lot of work in Astrology.
Just because the modern pseudo scientist did not put a stamp of
approval to it, we can not say Astrology is not a science. The science
is ever changing , finding new theories and opposing its own doctrines.
The scientists once declared that the Sun is revolving around the
Earth. After Galileo constructed the telescope, the same scientists
said that the Earth is revolving round the Sun. Whether the scientists
found it or not, the truth is always same. Probably, the same scientist
who is criticizing Astrology today, will hug it tomorrow in reverence.
