Vedic astrology is not lost despite discard by astronomers with astronomical discoveries
Author(s): YV Subba Rao
Abstract: Astronomers contend that major astronomical discoveries and advances in our knowledge and philosophy during the last 500 years have dealt a deadly blow on the intense astrological activities of over 5000 years and astrology moved from a pivotal role to an outcast from mainstream thinking. The think tank dismisses astrology as bereft of any science. Several astronomical discoveries are cited as the main contributing factors in breaking the astrological model and to its decline. The conventional astrology being practiced in the east including India with the erroneous sidereal chart and ipso facto the accuracy of predictions has compounded the cause of decline. In this paper, the causative factors for its decline are examined in the light of the uncanny ability and wisdom of ancient seers on the scientific basis in the genesis of basic principles of astrology explaining why it's no longer acceptable to say astrology is rubbish on a scientific basis and attempted to bring in the renaissance of astrology in the very land of its glory.
