Astrology | Miscellanea
Vaidik astrology has always
been sidereal, as it is based on the fixed stars through the Nakshatra,
that is why these cannot be made tropical.
There are many Ayanaansh which have their own plus ad minus points, such as. Lahiri Ayanaansh, Raman Ayanaansh, or Chandra Hari Ayanaansh,
If some one knows Prashn, best way to see the correctness of a Ayanaansh is Prashn, especially when Moon changes his signs (about to change in Lahiri and it is already in another Raashi.
The problem of ascertaining the
value of Ayanaansh is now not a observational problem. Modern astronomy is
now far advanced and can measure any arc accurately, once method of its
determination is agreed to. We are all presently depending on data given
by positional astronomical centers.
(1) VE Point , which is called
first point of Aries in Tropical Zodiac. This point recedes in zodiac in the
back ground of fixed stars at a mean rate of about 50.3 sec. per year. This is
accepted and adopted by most of savants in India.
As I know, most of the astrologers in India are of the view that Star Chitraa should be the reference star and initial point should be opposite to it. If this view is accepted, then the following becomes the mathematical definition of Ayanaansh:--
Value of Ayanaansh = Tropical
longitude of Star Chitraa - 180 deg.
BV Raman, being averse to use anybody else's name with the Ayanaansh that he would use, invented an Ayanaansh of his own, Raman Ayanaansh. So we had Yukteshwar Ayanaansh, Dhira Ayanaansh, Chopra Ayanaansh and even Chandra-Hair Ayanaansh, to name just a few. As it was expected, none of the Ayanaanash proved successful in Phalit Jyotish.
