Like any other science, astrology has its technology. the purpose of astrology is not only to give us a broader knowledge of ourselves; it is also to provide us with the tools to access the deeper aspects of our nature and to better deal with the forces of our subtle environment. This astrological technology consists of methods to harness our energies to improve our relationship with the cosmos. It improves various factors from nature, like gems, mantras, deities and rituals, but according to a spiritual and occult view. A Vedic astrologer is as much concerned with helping clients balance their planetary influences as with informing them as to what these influences may be. Vedic astrologers help us to better relate with and transform our karma. Vedic astrology is not a science of fate and doom but a system for alleviating suffering and warding off negative influences.
