Jyotish Connections
By  Natabara Das, in Sacred Objects group, 2/24/2012

Brighu is the father of Shukraachaarya and thus here we have two main Yantra in Vaidik astrology sponsored by Shukraachaarya or Venus, the Guru of the Asur and Brihaspati or Jupiter the Guru of the Devtaa. Both of those demigods have produced knowledge for their students according to their nature in all sorts of branches from astrology to architecture. Maya Daanav, for example, is from the school of Shukraachaarya and he is believed to have given the knowledge to the Maayaa in Mexico, and himself has written treatises in mathematics and astrology. In Vaidik astrology we use mainly two Yantra or styles of horoscopes. The one known as the North India style is called the Bhrighu Yantra, and the South India style of Yantra which is called the Brihaspati Yantra. What is known in India as the underground world is the Americas.

The Mesoamerican tribes had a 52 year calendar and saw Venus as their "star" (just like the Freemasons). The Hindu on the other hand follow the Brihaspati cycle of 60 years, and the Chinese and Tibetan have a similar cycle of 60 years. And I have found that both systems of calendars meet together once every 780 years (52x60/4) within 12 months. The last time this junction happened was in 1507 when the Mesoamericans celebrated their last 52 year century because their way of life had ended with the arrival of the European people. Astrology follows symptoms and symptoms follow astrology. The American (the American continent) people had a system of astrology with which they saw the end of their way of life and hence the adaptation to a new one. Their systems of knowledge were powerful as one can see from their architecture, medicine, shamans (Carlos Castaneda describes well but superficial about Mexican shamans), music, poetry, astronomy, and architecture. All over the world there were powerful cultures that collapsed with the Kuru Kshetra War when they lost their armies, kings, highest priests, etc. Kings from all over the Earth went to Kuruksetra with their best people just like Napoleon went to Egypt with hundreds of scholars or like kings are used to travel with hundreds of friends, queens, advisers, cooks, entertainers, and servants. King Yudhishthir invited the queens of those dead kings to stay in Hastinaapur to be protected by him and perhaps some of the other companions of those kings were given jobs in India, but for many others there was no hope of going back to their lands protected by their armies because all were killed at Kuru Kshetra. In Dwaapar Yug they had the knowledge of traveling by air and by sea with very advanced vehicles (and not by horses as we are made to believe). In our modern education we are told that history started some 5,000 years ago with forest men deciding to live in cities all of a sudden around the year 3,000 BC. The effects of Kali Yug started to appear with the appearance of Kans and his political network some 150 years before Kali Yuga started.

We should think organic and try to consider the whole rather than only one part of the whole. The year 1507 was very important junction of two systems; of Shukraachaarya and of Brihaspati, and the ancients knew about it. Lord Chaitanya was 21 years old, and he must have celebrated the new Brihaspati cycle that started with the New Moon on Pisces in 1507. There must be records of it somewhere as even in our days it is celebrated in India and the last beginning was in 1987. In the Year of 1507 a new beginning was seen in the Americas, India, China and Tibet. The New Year for Tibet and China starts with the New Moon in Capricorn.

The calendar leader was and is the Brihaspati year which starts with the New Moon in Pisces. With the New Moon in Pisces in 1507 a New Brihaspati cycle started. One day in November (Jenkins say 14 November but I am nor sure yet) in Mexico 1507 many tribes celebrated the New Fire Ceremony which happens once every 52 years when the Sun is opposite the Pleiades at midnight. And the Year of the Dragon in Tibet and in China started with the New Moon in Capricorn or some 10 Moon months after the Brihaspati Year having started.

The Chinese and Tibetan calendars have 12 signs named:
1 Rat
2 Ox
3 Tiger
4 Rabbit
5 Dragon
6 Snake
7 Horse
8 Sheep
9 Monkey
10 Rooster
11 Dog
12 Pig

These 12 signs are identical to the 12 signs in western and Vedic astrology but have different names, and 8 of them correspond to the first row of the main pieces of the chessboard.

Thus, the sign of Rat is Aries or a tower, Ox is Taurus or a horse, Tiger is Gemini or a bishop, Rabbit is Cancer or the Queen, Dragon is Leo or the King, Snake is Virgo or a bishop, Horse is Libra or a horse, Sheep is Scorpio or a tower.

Notice that sign 7 is a Horse and a horse on the chessboard, and corresponds to the sign of Libra which is ruled by Venus. The second sign or Taurus is also ruled by Venus and is the other horse of the chessboard.

Thus, in 1507 started a New Brihaspati cycle and 10 months later the year of the dragon started. Dragon and Leo are the royal signs ruled by the king the Sun.

In 3,113 BC on 13 August the present Maayaa calendar started, and in that year with the New Moon in Pisces a new Brihaspati cycle of 60 year started, and with the New Moon in Capricorn the year of the Dragon started.  But the junction of the Brihaspati and the Shukraachaarya cycles did happen in 3,173 BC when Lord Krishn was 54 years old.
