Astro-Vaastu and its Application

Vedic Astrology and Vaastu Shastra are both ancient sciences and there is a link between the two. If astrologers and Vaastu experts ignore this fact then effective solutions to human problems cannot be found..

Astro-Vastu

The term Astro-Vaastu stands for the combination of Astrology and Vaastu. This article aims at revealing the link between the two and ways of correlating these in order to diagnose native’s problem related to either of these and prescribe effective solution.

For knowing the basic link between the two sciences we need to define directions for both viz. a plot of land or premises and the birth chart.

Directions of a Birth Chart…

The concept of directions as applied to a birth chart is based upon the fact that the ascendant or Lagna is the zodiac sign rising in the eastern horizon at the time of birth of a native. Hence the direction on top of the ascendant is east. All other directions are then relevant to this as per convention.

Ways of Correlating the Birth Chart with Vaastu Defect (Dosha)…

Analyse the relevant houses of the birth chart of the native corresponding to the directions of his or her house where a Vaastu Dosha (Defect) exists. If the relevant houses in his or her birth chart are also under affliction then the situation becomes grave and the defect must not be ignored.

In such a case remedies for propitiation of the afflicted relevant planets should be followed by the native. If the relevant planets in the birth chart are free of affliction, but are weak in strength then the native must follow methods to strengthen those planets such as by wearing corresponding gemstones or reciting specific mantras etc.

In addition to the above Vaastu remedies should be followed as per advice of an expert.

If a particular house in your birth chart is weak or afflicted then before occupying a new house check the relevant direction of that house to ensure it is defect free. If not then get the Vaastu defect removed or cured under an expert’s advice before shifting to that house.
