Astrology is most interesting, marvelous & historical subject
in the world. Astrology informs us anyone can distinctive person. From our
experiences of parapsychology, meditations, psychology and new technology;
astrology can be described as pure mathematical science, that our many of
previous life's karmic energies are measured by considering planets and
their motions. Also these past energies gave us positive powers to born as
human being. Astrology define how our energy body affect with our mind and what kind
of positive powers we collected in our reincarnations, which are helping to our
current life. Also all planets & objects in space influence to human body
according to Physics such as Gravity. We get phlegm, cold, tonsillitis & fever
in full moon days while heavy sunny days we have problems with urine system.
Such way all planets link with our mind & body. In Sinhalese traditional word
for astrology is "Jyotishaya", which is "Jyothi-" meaning light, so with
whole word meaning "science of the light". In other word, it tells we want
astrology for success our life as we use light for going on dark roads.
Because we don't know our future, astrology is one of the occult
subject which tell about our future. Astrology used in Sri Lanka was found by
Indian & Sri Lankan seers and monks who had mind power such as
Also these mentors were discussed with gods for define calculations of how universe
effect to us. As history said, Sri Lankan king called "Rawana” was great
person who had huge skills in astrology & medicine. So this is a science of the mind power.
As parapsychology, astrology is a sacred geometry, one form of light
method of the accessing Akashic Records
which tells our strengths & weaknesses according to our
karmic forces in our
Astrology in Sri Lanka use Birth Time, Birth
Date & Birth Place (Country with Town) for calculate our birth chart from
advanced mathematical formulae. Birth time is normally considered as first
breathing time or first crying time of newborn baby. Astrology varies with
countries, cultures, sects, religions and customs. But root concepts are same in
everywhere. Sri Lankan astrology used Indian Vedic Astrology with
some modifications from family of King Rawana's concepts & Lord Buddha's teachings. As Buddhists, we believe that
influences from birth chart mean our karma & also as modern
science those are planet's
radiations which can overcome from our mind power, freewill and persistence.
Planets or Grahayo
(means : Attracting Objects), play important role in astrology. Each of planets has its own areas which belong to personal life &
our character. So
combinations of planets are helping to determine our inborn skills, mind,
educational capabilities, sicknesses, etc. Sri Lankan astrology lump with
nine main plants. Their details are given in below table. However remember
facts are basic of the astrology. Other new planets (like Neptune, Pluto & Uranus)
are important in western astrology but Sri Lankan astrology they have minor
effects in birth charts. Cause their distance and motions can't make big
influences to our life. Hence we are not mention about them in here. Astrology
which was found by yogic meditative mentors who have mind power,
must be neglected these new planets cause they are not important so much.
Rahu and Ketu (in western astrology called as Capet Dragonis &
Cauda Dragonis) are two images creating when sun and moon rotate around solar system. These two images create barrier to other planet’s radiations. Rahu & Ketu get more attention in birth chart reading with eastern astrology
rather than western astrology. So, here is the table of planets & their some
ruling areas :
Alone, create phobias in mind, properties lost, sicknesses in skin,
fears, education, etc...
Zodiac Signs or Rashi,
play important role in one's characters. All signs have their ruling planets
which give their own natures. As an example Libra is ruled by Venus therefore
people who born on Libra are somewhat romantic personals & have human eye.
Also some planets are behaving as exaltation to some signs. It means that planet helps to
related zodiac sign to it's upgrading. So it is not harm to even it staying in
negative house. But these concepts can be varying with other nine planets.

Each zodiac sign has own lucky
gems, numbers, months, colors & dates. Numerology is used for find out those
lucky signals. Numerology is section in occultism which is
discussing how numbers are joining with our life. It means from our birth time
we can guess, what numbers are positive to us or negative to us. Basic
Lucky Number is calculating with adding all individual numbers in our
birth date, together till achieve single number among one to nine.
(As example, Basic Lucky Number for Birth Date 1980:03:28 is = 1+9+8+0+0+3+2+8
= 31 = 3+1 = 4)
From complex calculations, astrologers find out more 16 lucky numbers related
to our birth time. However from our main Lagna or Ascendent,
we can find out some more basic lucky signals. Below chart show those lucky
signals which will help you while taking lotteries, buying new vehicles,
starting new business, etc...
Sri Lankan people use mainly two birth charts which are called as Lagna &
Nawansaka. Apart from these two charts, there have other four birth charts
which help to more accurate readings. All of six charts are called as six
groups or Sad Vargha. Astrologers use nine planets and their motions in
zodiac signs & asters for
verify our future. Normally one person have own one Lagna and one Nawansaka.
Therefore we can determine 12 kinds of basic characteristics run on people in
the society according to astrology. Lagna is main Zodiac Sign
called as Ascendent &
Nawansaka is used to determine angle of planets in houses, determine
aster power and verify links between planet's power & aster’s powers. However
important chart is Lagna Chart. Also it is called as our main Horoscope. In
Sinhalese, main horoscope is identified as Kendaraya as social astrology
used in Sri Lanka. Following picture is sample Sri Lankan birth chart or
horoscope. Also this is mention as natal chart.
Lagna (also related to other five charts) are again divided into 12 areas as
below picture. These 12 places are called as Bhava Places or Houses.
All houses have their own area about our life & effects to our body parts.
Also all bhava places have zodiac signs which are started from Lagna. Houses
are counting as anti-clock wise such as below. So planets are situated in
these bhava places.
Also planets can influence from their housing place to another places such as
Sun sits in 1st house in sample horoscope but can influences to 7th house too. So this is called as Graha Dushti or
or Planetary Aspects. Normally we need to understand it as sun sits in
7th house. Only main seven planets have enough power for influences on other
houses, so other minor planet's showings are no need to care too much when do
birth chart readings. Normally major planets can aspect to 7th house from
their original house. It is most strong aspect. Different astrological sects
have different methods for calculating aspects. Comets called as
Duma Ketu and mathematical points in space called as Upahgraha or
Sub Planets also play some role in eastern astrology. You can
understand some planets have moons and in the universe, there have
infinitive number of planets, stars & galaxies. From upahgrahas these kind of
objects are taken into consideration by ancient sages who formulated
Planetary Combinations or Graha Yogas mean how one particular
planet stay on birth chart with other planets or with 12 bhava places. And
what kind of planetary showings they had got. Planets are not staying steady
way in our birth chart. They transit from one sign to another in universal
chart or in sky. So astrologers consider where planet is in really at this
moment. It is like if your birth chart, Mars is in seventh house, but in universal birth
chart it is going on tenth house. This is called as Planetary Transits or
Graha Chara. We can know where planets are going at current or particular times
in universal chart by referring Almanacs of Five Factors or
Below picture is one of sample Sri
Lankan Horoscope and there have
12 houses where planets stay as one or with combinations. You can see tenth
house have such combination of Budha & Ketu. Here Lagna is Tula.
As told in early section, under positions planets rule their own zodiac signs while other
planets are treating as their friends. But some planets are negative with some
zodiac signs. As well as some planets are not either rule, friendly or even
negative. They are called neutral planet to related zodiac sign. However in
generally there have rule that each zodiac signs have benefit planets which
give positive results, excellent planets which give courage to person, malific planets which give negative results and then maraka planets which
give deadly occurrences and objections to life. Here is table
going on such facts. As some astrological sects, wearing gems related to
negative planets helping to give worse conditions. (However for determine planet's power, we need to use
complex calculations such as aster power, sodasha vargha power, bhava place

Also nine planets have their own characteristics of
gender, nature, elements
& states as following table. These facts are sometimes important for some
occasions. As example, one can choose car according to color of the most
powerful planet in his horoscope. If you have malfunction from particular planet, you can ask
helping from related deity.
As well as zodiac signs, each house in horoscope has their own ruling
planets. It is called as House Lord or Bhava Adipathi. This
concept helps to determine how one house effect to another house. As example,
2nd house of the natal chart belongs to money so its lord is in 4th house means money
link with fixed properties. Cause 4th house in any chart belongs to fixed
properties. Only main seven planets consider as house lords. Also sun & moon
own only one house while other planets own two houses. Here is the chart
related to house lords of each zodiac signs :
