Astrology, the ancient wisdom, helps us in understanding the potentialities and weaknesses of our personality to enable us to charter the course of success in our life in the matters of health, career, love, relationships and finances. The horoscopic influences are studied through the placements of planets and the conjunctions and other aspects they make. These influences are read in terms of the strength of the planets, both for the planetary periods (dasa and bhukti) and the current planetary influences (transit). Importantly, the reading is made with reference to the ascending sign worked out on the basis of the birth date, time and place. The aspects help us in identifying the auspicious and inauspicious planetary configurations. The placement of a planet links the significations of the house ruled by it with the significations of its house of placement. A planet owning the 6th, 8th or 12th house becomes a functional malefic planet and is capable of afflicting other placements in the chart. An afflicted planet indicates suffering through the significations ruled by the said planet. The blessed ones are impelled by the divine forces for making use of the ultimate knowledge of astrological remedial measures (Jyotish Remedies) - both propitiating malefic planets and strengthening weak planets through Kavach or Gems. "Based on the planetary influences in a birth chart / horoscope, preventive propitiatory Jyotish/astral Remedies & strengthening measures are best."
Due to the many confusing inconsistencies in the classical texts, V.K. Choudhry has developed the Systems' Approach for Interpreting Horoscopes (SA) to bring out the salient factors in horoscope analysis. His systematic approach has enabled students and practitioners of astrology to easily comprehend the key factors for accurate horoscope interpretation and prediction. SA is growing in popularity internationally due to its clear and simple rules and reliable results. The philosophical basis for his astrological work is to some extent the Ramayana. The home page of V.K. Choudhry offers a free weekly horoscope for each of the twelve ascendants, free online birth horoscope and free access to material for learning Vedic Astrology through the Systems'Approach.
