There are many forces of destiny for us to understand, and Vedic astrology – the astrology of India – gives us one tool. It is a great gift in revealing who we are, and where we are in time. The next task is accepting and working with those factors. Knowing this and accepting this, we move on to pursuing the destiny we were meant to live, at the highest level – as manifestations of the planetary lights, the brightest of which are the Sun and the Moon. Their light is reflected in each of us.

“Time is the force behind the Creation of the universal elements. It is also the force that brings about the Destruction of all these. Even when the Universe is Asleep, Time remains in a state of Awakening. Time, which is thus ever alert, is an Inviolable Force. … Time bakes the various living beings along with their souls.”  From “The Concept of Time,” Hora Ratnam, Chapter 2, slokas 327-328, p. 309.
