I am Vijayanandan, a Post Graduate in Economics, and Retired faculty of a Govt Training Istitute having good flair in Astrology. I belong to a family of traditional astrologers and teachers of martial arts in Kerala. I am otherwise still a student of Vedic Astrology. I believe astrological predictions are actually the possibilities but ofcourse can be used as a precaution and for mental preparedness in difficult situations. Vedic Astrology, the most thoughtfully organized and dedicated predictive science unraveling the mysteries by Parasara method of Jyotish, "the science of light." Jyotish transcends the limitations of a logical approach to astrology, reaching into the realm of abstractions and intuition to comprehend the spirit. It goes through the common steps and maps out the pitfalls. The study of Astrology itself is complex and sometimes an overwhelming subject. Vedic, or Jyotish Astrology, has its roots in Indian and Hindu culture, making it markedly different from western methodology of predictions. It is infact, a bridge between the astrological heritage and the cultural philosophy.
