Somehow I am not challenging Astrology & I am amazed how some people are able to predict your nature & your future so accurately just by your time of birth & place of birth.

I already met some great astrologers who are amazing in their job & can tell you your past without knowing you & even predict future accurately with knowing you.

Astrologers have most accurate knowledge of cosmic events (more accurate & before than NASA) like Lunar Eclipse & solar eclipse in next 1000 years. They know about all planets, their cycles long before even Galileo propose Heliocentric.

Is this like they are so advanced in science & knowledge of universe that we still can't imagine and they have equation to predict time as dimension to predict best possibility of future.

What is actual science behind astrology? Do any Hindu scriptures explain this science?

NOTE: I know astrology is not fake except for some fakers who exist even in science as scientists.

    Restricting user views relating Hinduism to valid science should not be done. It will make this community stronger with more following. How in universe it can degrade quality of posts with providing scientific & more logical facts in support of tradition, I can't understand. Mar 2 '16 at 12:33

    You should be proud to know Hinduism is only religion that is dynamic, not stubborn, seeks scientific proof, has open ended discussion/debates among visionaries called Shastharth ages ago. We need this community to be more open to constructive support. Mar 2 '16 at 12:36

    Jyotish is called Veda's eyes but i'm not sure where.Also Jyotish=Jyoti+Ish .Now what does this sandhi actually mean?Does that mean the light through which Iswara(God) can be seen(realised) Or The Light of God (to remove darkness/ignorance and to understand the laws of nature in a better way)?

    @SwamiVishwananda, Vedic knowledge is not limited to Vedanta. 6 angas of Vedas - shiksha, chandas, vyakarana, nirukta, kalpa, jyotisha - are all integral part of Hinduism. Jyotisha is commonly known as 'astrology' today. This question is very valid for this site. I vote to reopen it.
