Astrology is the study of the magnetic energy which makes up our world.Vedic astrology is not an art of fortune telling based on guesswork but an organized systematic body of knowledge .In vedic astrology, the horoscope is to be prepared on the basis of the planets: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Rahu, Kethu, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Mandy. Sun and Moon are essentially luminaries. Rahu and Kethu are planets, however for the purpose of predictions, all the four are considered as such, with Rahu and Kethu as the ascending and descending nodes of the Moon. Mandy is the satellite of Saturn.

Astrology is being utilized for the benefit of mankind, to improve their lives. Vedic astrology is otherwise called Jyothisha shasthra.Ancient Vedic scriptures date back to about 6000 years ago. Astrology as well as Astronomy come under the purview of Vedic Astrology. The three main sub pisions of astrology are Ganita ,Gola , and Samhita. It can also be classified in to six sub categories viz. Horoscope or Jathakam, Prasna, Omens or Nimitthas, Electional Science, Astrology or Gola and Mathematics or Ganitha.

Jyothisha was first mentioned in Rig-Veda, later its details are also mentioned in Ramayana, Mahabharatha and Bhagavadgitha.Jyothisha is considered to be the prime eye of knowledge, which is pure, supreme and sacred.
