The Sanskrit word Jyotish or “Science of Light” refers to the Indian form of astrology. Jyotish is an ancient system of divination derived from the study of relationship and effects between the planets of our solar system and terrestrial beings and things of the earth plane.
The “light” of Jyotish is intended to give an individual a birds eye view of their probable experience in each year and epoch of life. Such knowledge is calculated and intended to enable the individual to adjust their expectations and refine the focus of endeavor for success and progress in all areas of life. Jyotish also features a science known as Muhurta. This branch of Jyotish is helpful in determining a time to begin any project or aim which is conducive for success.
