According to Maya, the sun has twenty different rays that alternately shine on us. These are the solar seals, as the “horoscopes” in Mayan astrology say. For example, there are more astrological movements. We highlight four of them, as well as Mayan, Chinese, Vedic, and Spiritual.
Karma and Remedies
Vedic astrology, also known as Indian astrology or Jyotish, has its roots in Vedic culture. It is said to be several thousand years old and was first passed down orally, and then was described in the Vedas, the oldest Hindu scriptures. Jyotish is Sanskrit for “the science of light”. Like Western astrology, this form of astrology has evolved over time. Initially, the positions of the stars were considered to determine the most appropriate time, for example, for religious ceremonies or agriculture. Only later were personal birth charts drawn up.
Where the sun plays a major role in western astrology, ancient Indian astrology is based on the moon. When someone in India asks for your “zodiac sign,” they don’t want to know your sun sign, but the sign that contains your ascendant and moon. Both systems use a different zodiac. Western astrology uses the tropical horoscopes, which, simply put, depend on the seasons; The vernal equinox is fixed at 0 degrees Aries. But because the Earth’s axis “wobbles” a bit, this vernal equinox actually turns very slowly. The Jyotish works with the astrological signs, which depend on the actual positions of the stars.
Fixed stars in the sky
Indian astrology focuses on 27 different nakshatraFixed stars in the sky. Each of these stars is empowered by a different Hindu deity. What is important for a personal horoscope is in which nakshatra the moon is. The personality and experiences of a Hindu deity (as described in the Vedas) associated with Naakshatra are of symbolic significance to your personality and life.
Modern Vedic astrology works just like Western with twelve signs and houses (the areas of life, you might say). It has nine planets. These are Surya (Sun), Chandra (Moon), Buddha (Mercury), Shukran (Venus), Mangal (Mars), Guru (Jupiter), Shani (Saturn), Rahu (North Node, the point where the orbit is the intersection of the Sun and Moon ) and Quito (South Node).
In consulting Vedic Astrology, the “reading” of karma plays a major role. What kind of karma have you gained, in this life and in the previous life, and how can you resolve it in the way that suits you in order to develop yourself spiritually? You can get very practical remedies for this: practice a specific meditation or yoga pose, chant a mantra or use a specific crystal. Also whether and how you match a love partner has been a traditional Jyotish specialty.

Animals are moving along
This form of astrology is associated with Taoist and Buddhist philosophy. Chinese astrology does not consider the position of the sun, moon and planets against the background of the starry sky at the time of birth, but an animal sign is assigned each year. That year begins during the Chinese New Year, in January or February. This is usually the second new moon day after the winter solstice (sometimes the third new moon).
You can be born in the year of the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat (or Sheep), Monkey, Rooster, Dog or Pig. Each twelve sign has its own characteristics. It is combined with the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water, and with the principle of yin and yang.
It is difficult to trace the origin of the use of these animal characters. A well-known legend, which has many variants, is that Buddha invited all animals to a dinner. In the race there, only twelve animals appeared. The order in which they arrived determines the Chinese calendar, and their behavior during the race colors the traits attributed to the animal signs. Some scholars believe that the twelve-year calendar stems from early astronomy that followed Jupiter, which orbits the sun in twelve years.
There are many different variants of this form of astrology. In the West, the astrology of the four corners was popularized. These four columns are designated by time of birth, birth day, birth month and year of birth, and each has its corresponding animal, element, and yin or yang character. They say something about your character and your destiny in life. Happy periods can also be counted.
According to Chinese philosophy, life is much less flexible than we think in the West. If you have a “bad year”, there is no point in resisting it, but it is better to accept it and wait for a better time. Sadness will automatically turn into happiness, and bad luck will eventually turn into favorable circumstances. Chinese astrology expresses a great respect for nature and its rhythms. What you can actively do on your own is to balance yin and yang. Advice on balancing your life and flowing with the cosmic rhythm is an important part of a Chinese astrology consultation.
Creative force and life path
The ancient Mayans, who lived in Central America, had an incredibly detailed knowledge of astronomy. They used as many as seventeen different calendars, some based on the cycle of the moon, others on much larger motions in the universe. The most famous calendar is the Tzulkin calendar, which has 260 days. Various cycles intertwine in this sacred Mayan calendar.
According to Maya philosophy, we receive energy and information through the Sun from what the Mayans called the Hunab Ku: the central sun of the universe, the galactic center, and the “cosmic womb” from which all life arose. The energy flowing from the Hunab Ku will flow to us through the stars, acting like lenses. In our solar system, this star is the sun. According to Mayan astrology, this has twenty rays that alternately shine upon us, the Solar Seals. These are, for example, the Mayan “towers”. They represent twenty different sides of the creative force. The twenty solar seals are divided into four colors, each representing a stage of the creation process: beginning (red), deepening or purification (white), transformation (blue) and ending (yellow).
In Tzolkin, a thirteen-day cycle is also repeated. According to Maya, each creativity consists of thirteen steps or tones. These are the movements needed to create something. The thirteen tones together form what is called a waveform (wave, or “life path”) for a period of thirteen days. Your Mayan horoscope consists of the solar seal corresponding to your birthday – Red Dragon, White Wind, Blue Night, Yellow Seed, Red Snake, White Worldbridger, Blue Hand, Yellow Star, Red Moon, White Dog, and Blue Monkey, Yellow Human, Red Skywalker, White Wizard, Blue Eagle, Yellow Warrior, Red Earth, White Mirror, Blue Storm or Yellow Sun – and the tone of that moment and the life path in which you were born.
Your horoscope indicates your cosmic creative power, talents, luminous sides and also your shadow aspects. By knowing this, and following the Mayan calendar, which indicates the potential creative power of each new day, you can tap into the creative energy of the moment. Every day, and with each new cycle that comes, you can take a step deeper. Through the talents that the universe has bestowed and supported you with, you can increasingly shape the life you dream – and which you create with the power of your thinking. Mayan astrology helps you to be a conscious creator.
Moon knot and soul
Western astrology has all kinds of developments and branches, such as classical astrology, psychological astrology, and medical astrology. Another fairly new movement is spiritual astrology. When it comes to the “normal” interpretation of the horoscope of your personality, typical behavior and psychological development, this movement looks at the area of u200bu200bthe soul. What does the soul experience in this life? What are the possible influences in your past life or your ancestors on your life now?
The path of soul development is represented by the lunar nodes; Points where the orbit of the sun intersects with the orbit of the moon. The Moon’s south node in your sign indicates what you know and what you can do from past lives. This is a familiar land for your soul. The opposite point, the North Node, indicates the development you yearn for, and the new that your soul wants to discover.
Pluto – which is no longer seen as a planet in astronomy – also has to do with the soul. In the area (house) of your horoscope where Pluto is located, you will encounter what you fear most as well as what drives and charms you deeply. If you can finally give in (with Pluto’s phrase “Not my will, but yours will end”) and live through fear, it can turn into love. Because the soul in the end is love.
Another part of spiritual astrology is the so-called “black lights”: the black sun and the black moon. These are not celestial bodies that exist, but calculated points in space. For example, the black moon is the point of the moon’s orbit around the earth that is farthest from the earth. The area in which the Black Moon is located in your chart indicates your cosmic wisdom. Here you simply “know”, for example how relationships work, or what the whole business is. Often times when you were a child, you are rejected because of this innate wisdom, and you have to overcome some bumps in order to fit this fundamental, cosmic quality again.
The black sun indicates the point in your graph where you are not conditioned by your environment or your family. Here is your pure personality.
Then there are the asteroids, which are innumerable little celestial bodies and more identified by astronomers. They are often named after characters from Greek mythology, such as the centaur: half man, half horse. Chiron is the most famous. This centaur, according to legends, was badly wounded, but became a professor of medicine. Chiron in your horoscope also indicates a kind of “pain point”, through which you can help others heal through your experience. Other centaurs include Volos and Nessus. These refer to themes in your horoscope that come from ancestors.
Spiritual astrology offers a broader or higher perspective from the perspective of everyday life. An interpretation of the spiritual points in your horoscope can tell you something about what your soul is coming to do here on earth: what lessons you intend to learn, what experiences you want to gain or develop, and what wisdom you have brought with you to this. mundane existence.
