On 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. He can guide through the complications of Vedic astrology, time and karma to the highest inner knowledge. All Vedic astrologers should seek his guidance. All Vedic chart readings should begin with mantras to Ganesha like: OM Ganeshaya Namah! Vedic astrologers should look to Ganesha not just in regard to Ketu, but more so in regard to Jupiter.
