Is Astrology really a science? People's opinions vary endlessly over the issue and in most cases; we are likely to find multitudes that have more or less a neutral standpoint.

Nevertheless, this has been an issue of debate for long. It could never be denied that in history, we have had some astounding incidents wherein some events had been predicted, with great accuracy, and long before they actually occurred. In essence, it would be wrong to reject astrology and the power that it possesses over our lives.

Expressed in a simple way, Vedic astrology is a study that defines how the positioning and movement of celestial bodies influence our lives and the physical processes on earth. In most cases, astrologers work with the sun, the moon, their placement and the placement of planets within the solar system. But it is very important to understand that Vedic astrology is a science, or an art form far more deeply rooted than the zodiac sign horoscope columns that we normally come across.

People sometimes say that astrology has a lot to do with a divine faith of some sort, and is not backed by reason. But on the contrary, claims made by astrology can be tested in objectively in individual cases. Moreover, rejecting astrology as just another new age theory would be absolutely wrong, because the art form has been in prominence for at least five thousand years. And we often find that in the history of human evolution, some concepts were once rejected as being impossible, but were later proved to be true without any doubt. During the age of enlightenment, a belief that earth could be hit by rocks from outer space was ridiculed by the scientists of that age. But now we know with undeniable scientific evidence that meteorites have played a great role in defining the evolution of species.

Astrology can't be called a belief or a religion, and anyone who has ever studied astrology knows that it is a knowledge that can be tested and verified. Anyone who rejects astrology is likely to be doing so out of ignorance. Astrology undoubtedly is based on a mechanism, and is a detailed study, an ocean of knowledge. If one dismisses astrology by claiming that it is not scientific, one must understand that not understanding the mechanism can never be a viable reason for overlooking the evidence! A compass has been used for two millennia for predicting directions, but the magnetic field of the earth was not understood right till the 20th century. And a science must be used in a constructive way; rejecting a demonstrable effect would be absolutely wrong!

If one believes that he is trying to find the actual proof behind the mechanism of Vedic astrology, he must recognize that science can never be proved. We can deduce a proof in mathematics that claims that a proposition is true, but you can never prove physics. It is the aggregation of empirical evidence that builds up a theory! And with replications, a theory is established. With the advent of new age, scientists are discovering innumerable correlations between celestial positions and life on earth! is a website dedicated to the art of Vedic Astrology, and enabling its customers to find the right path to move ahead in life.
