Sri Ganesha in Vedic Astrology

Sri Ganesha in Vedic AstrologyOn this day of Ganesh Chaturthi, we share one article by an esteemed jyotisha (astrologer). This brilliant article by David Frawley (Vamadeva Shastri) of Vedanet.com explains the many connections between Lord Ganesha and Vedic astrology. According to the summary of the article, “Along with his indications as one of the main Devatas, giver of wisdom and remover of obstacles, Ganesha has many connections with light, time and Vedic astrology.

The August Full Moon – the Blue Moon.

The Blue Full MoonWe commence looking at this Full Moon by noticing an oddity, the rising sign is the same for both the Birth chart and the 9th, the Navamsa. The rising sign is Pisces.

This would apply to all, young and old.
