Broadly, Indian Astrology is popularly referred as "Vedic Jyotish". Jyotish is the Sanskrit word which is derivated from the combination of "Jyoti" and "Isht", which means "Light" and "God" respectively. Thus, literal meaning of Jyotish is "Divine Light". Jyotish is originated from Vedas, sacred scriptures of Hindus and most commonly from "Rigvedas". We also find astrological references abound in the great epics of India which determines its existence and concept. In reference of it Valmiki in Ramayana says, "that which happens suddenly and cannot be prevented even through efforts but creates a new inscrutable situation is the work of destiny."
In Mahabharata, particularly in Bhagwad Geeta, Shri Krishna says, "The unreal has no existence, the real never ceases to be. Knowers of truth have realized this." - Bhagwad Geeta : chapter-2, shlok - 16.
Astrology was not experimentally contrived, but rather percieve through enlightened vision by the ancient Sage Parashara, who is considered the original author of the Vedic astrological texts. He defines in his master piece, Brihat Parashar Horashastra that - "Astrology is the study of the cosmic objects usually planets and stars which influences the human lives". Its primary focus is to calculate the position of the Sun, Stars and planets at the time of an individual's birth as they empowered to predict the events of the present, past and future.
Vedic Astrology readings are based on the "Theory of Karma", which states that a human being lives and works within certain parameters created by actions performed in previous lifetimes. It includes fate and free will. Fate in karma means what we are having in present is the result of our past deeds from prior births and can be difficult to change, while free will in karma theory means that we make our future by our present actions. This was probably the reason behind the Swami Vivekanada statement that - "The will is not free, it is phenomenon bound by cause and effect, but there is something behind the will which is free".
Our benevolent actions/deeds will bring success and happiness whereas malevolent or papakarmas will cause of sufferings and troubles. Therefore, every action that we perform in life has its reaction. These karmas are categorised in three types - Sanchita, Prarabdha and Kriyamana.
