Shadow Planet – Gulika
In total there are about fifty systems of periods of the planets or signs that allow the Jyotish achieve high accuracy in predicting events of a human life, especially the time of their occurrence. In the Western astrology such systems of periods are absent.
Greeks still had this knowledge but later on it disappeared, was lost. According to many people dealing with the Western Astrology for a long time and acquaint with such kind of knowledge, this system of periods amazes its accuracy. Almost every my course was attended by several people who practiced the Western astrology for many years. Most of them afterwards completely went over to the Vedic astrology and the rest combined both of them. Some Western astrologers also started to use this knowledge lately. Arabs, in their turn, copied it from the Vedas, obtained by them in the process of conquest, and gave it their name.
Greeks and Persians also had knowledge about the Nakshatras. Position of the planets in the Nakshatras firstly of the Moon, the rising sign, the Sun enables to reveal quite a lot. Each Nakshatra takes 13, 20 degrees and is divided into 4 parts pads. Eexactly Nakshatras show under what star a person was born. Western astrologers use only one chart, natal.
Vedas astrologers say: yes, it is most important, but also there is no less important a chart, moon chart, plus 16 extra charts Vargas , which help to see in detail all aspects and areas of life, to penetrate deeply human psychology, including the subconscious. The Vedic Astrology also has many tools that are unique and are not used in the Western astrology. These are Karaki or indicators that provide an understanding of different categories of people or other spheres of human life, and also other prediction methods such as: Ashtakavarga, Sudarshan Chakra Chakra Sarvatobhadra, Saham, etc.
All of them are part of the objective reality and always act together. Vedic astrologers use yogas, connection of the planets. There are thousands of yogas planetary combinations , only a few hundred basic.
There are still schools in India that teach only yogas, and owing to this can analyze a chart well enough and fairly deep. Western astrologers do not know about this at all. The system of aspects interpretation is also different. In the Vedic astrology different planets give different aspects according to their nature, in the Western astrology aspects of all the planets are the same.
In the Jyotish aspects are asymmetrical that is the aspect of 90 degrees ahead of the planet is not the same as the aspect of 90 degrees back of the planet , in the Western astrology aspects are symmetrical. In the Western astrology aspects themselves can be good and bad, in the Jyotish planets are considered to be favorable or unfavorable and not their aspects.
Also, there are no aspects of the signs in the Western astrology, in the Jyotish along with aspects of the planets there are aspects of the signs. The Vedic astrology uses a deeply studied upaya system methods of the planetary influences harmonizing , as well as Ayurveda medicine and psychology , etc.
In the Vedic astrology much attention is paid to the personality of an astrologer, qualities of character, spiritual level, Sadhana daily spiritual practice. In the Western astrology it is not important. The Vedic astrology was given by enlightened sages in meditation many years ago and was a part of the Vedas. The Modern Western astrology is just fragments of some knowledge.
From India it spread to Persia exactly Persian astrologers predicted the coming of Jesus Christ , then to ancient Greece where it was still closely connected with its roots. Later on, with the spread of Christianity, astrology sometimes was forbidden, sometimes was allowed, many books and knowledge were lost in Europe. In the 19 century in Europe astrology was completely forgotten, as it was believed that as technology was developed there would not be need for it.
It was revived in the 20 century, more like a commercial project. It became popular to give different kinds of predictions in the media for the week, month, year, etc. All this causes much damage to the very word Astrology. Most importantly the Jyotish Vedic astrology places God at the center of the universe, while the Western astrology, with its characteristic materialist approach, holds Him out of the world picture, and aims to exploit the resources of the material universe.
In the Vedic astrology there is an important principle of the guru spiritual teacher , or Ishta Devata, without whose blessing an astrologer has no right to engage in predictions, as in the Western astrology there are no restrictions, even a self-taught can engage in astrology.
Interestingly, the official prohibition of astrology was in 4th century.

Neither Jesus nor his disciples opposed the astrology. The same applies to the Old Testament. Eight years ago in Israel I was lent a book of well-known Rabbi about the planetary influences on human health and the fate of the USA, who adduces hundreds of evidences, relying on the Holy Scriptures and sayings of sages, confirming the authority of astrology. In the 3rd century after the church rejected a treatise on the Transmigration of a soul and formulated religious dogmas that could help including in political issues, governing a state, astrologers were quite useless.
This prohibition had a positive moment, it forbade people to turn to fortune-tellers and astrologers for the future prediction. Only God knows the future.
