The Vedic Astrology

Vedic Astrology, also known as Jyotish- the science of light (also Indian or Hindu Astrology) is one of the important constituents of the Vedic knowledge that primarily has the main aim of improving and uplifting the human's life and their welfare by ameliorating their sufferings.

It is also known as "VEDANG" i.e. "LIMB OF VEDAS" which signifies its lineage and origin especially mentioned in Rig Vedas i.e. the most ancient and sacred of texts. Believe it or not but Vedic astrology is perhaps the oldest, deepest, greatest as well as the typical science of all times.

It deals with the delineation of life from conception to death and even beyond these realms. It relies on sidereal and planetary placements seen in the sky at the time of birth. The cardinal underlying principles being those celestial conditions i.e. planetary placements and positions or combinations at birth with respect to time, influence to determine the pattern of the whole life of humans and the respective events in their life and relation to other entities on the Earth.

Astrology is like any other science, its practice would remain an art and lead to different interpretations in different parts of the world. But the concepts and principles of the Vedic astrology by far progressively became lucid and amazingly true.

Hence, it is only through the study of the Vedic astrology that the secret of fate and free will can be deciphered on a logical plane. Its principles are quite intricate yet simple, elaborative yet easy, and vast yet comprehensible. At times, it may appear as if these are contradicting to what has been established but proper going through the various permutations and combinations, one can reach the conclusion it was mentioned and supposed to be.

A Healthy Relationship

It is very strange and ironical as well as how almost everyone wants to be in a strong relationship and is ready to be into the one in no time. Some of them just want a tag to be into relationships, while there are others who truly invest a lot to make it happen and flourishing.  

They are basically many categories of relationships- deep, platonic, superfluous, namesake, etc etc. But this post has nothing to do with the type of relationships rather what according to me, a healthy relationship actually means. Here, it is not only just about the relationship a man and a women shares but about every relationship humans dwell into.

As we all know pure and unconditional love is what makes any relationship strong but there are yet many things which aid in building the stronger bond. Hence, below are certain signs of a positive and healthy (any) relationship.

  • TRUST: This is so needless to mention how much significant trust is in any relationship. It is an absolute backbone of any deep bond. 

  • COMMUNICATION: Being able to communicate freely in a relationship is its true essence. It can overcome any sort of conflict, disagreement, argument or mere difference of opinions at a base level which may result in the death of a bond in the long run if people involved don't communicate properly.

  • TAKE RESPONSIBILITY: One should always take responsibility for his/her actions rather putting blames on each other or circumstances whatsoever.

  • EMPATHY: No matter how practical or logical you may be, empathy is a must in a relationship. It is a sign of strength and not weakness.

  • RESPECT: Again it is something really non-negotiable. It is the life of any relationship. Every healthy relationship stands on mutual respect.

  • BOUNDARIES: Setting and maintaining boundaries or having personal space for one own self is very important in one's growth and people should have mutual consideration and respect for that.

  • EFFORT: People say that in a relationship everything should be smooth and one should just go with the flow but no, practically, there are ups and downs in every relation and in those times one should make every possible effort to bring back the spark and life of relation.

  • GRATEFULNESS: You should always acknowledge and be grateful to the other person's effort and make him/her feel special and loved.

  • SELF-LOVE: As I always speak about it, loving and respecting one own self is equally important as doing it to the other person involved. It is a must-have attribute for anyone whether in a relationship or not. Always take out time for yourself.

  • DON'T TURN A BLIND EYE: It is very essential to have an unconditional love but don't ever be blind enough to take everything as it comes from the other side. Be upfront about things that bother you.

  • RESOLVE AND RELIEVE: Resolve the issues whenever required. It is always better to dissolve conflicts and relieve yourself with unnecessary emotional baggage. Never hold grudges for each other.

  • UNDERSTANDING: Understanding each other's needs and priorities are of utmost significance in any relation. It grants long-lasting relationships.

  • FIGHTS AND ARGUMENTS: This may sound obnoxious to many but I think that fights and arguments bring betterment to any relationship as it widens the horizon of any relation and makes people realize what went wrong and where. It also aids in improvisations as and when required. But it majorly depends on the individual's perspective as well because if a person is adamant or stubborn in his/her approach it may lead to worse consequences too.

  • REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS: Have realistic expectations for both people involved and of relationship per se. Stop faking perfection and idolizing it to an unachievable extent.

  • NO COMPARISONS: Each relation and every individual is unique. Comparisons only bring frustrations and peaceless lives which you are only responsible for. So stop comparisons with others and work out your own salvation.

  • NO OBLIGATIONS: There should be no compulsion or obligations to stay together always. It is just that whenever you are with each other just enjoy each others company to the core and cherish it throughout.

  • FRIENDS BEFORE COUPLE: For romantic relationships, be it a love bond or even marriage for that matter, both individuals should share a friendship bond first. Relationships with pure friendship as its foundation are everlasting.

  • NON-JUDGEMENTAL: But obvious, any relationship in which individuals judge each other for the way they are, bound to create hardships and struggles in the smooth progression of the bond.

  • MAKE DECISIONS TOGETHER: A healthy relationship always resides in a bond where both the persons involved have an equal say in it. At times, it may demand one to compromise on certain aspects while other times another has to lay back but it doesn't make anyone lesser than the other. A decision that comes out should be the amalgamation of both's opinions and agreements.

  • INTIMACY: Of course one of the most important factors of a healthy relationship. Often people relate intimacy with only physical and sexual compatibility and bond but it is far more beyond and above this. Both individuals should definitely have mental intimacy and compatibility as well because that's what maintains the chords in tune with each other in the long run.

  • MAKE EACH OTHER BETTER: Surely a sign of a healthy relationship is when both the persons uplift each other and support immensely both personally and professionally. Encouraging and motivating the other to fulfil his/her dreams and always be by each other's side no matter what. 

  • HONESTY: It is one of the most important pillars of any relationship. This is what connects the two souls together forever. 

So guys, don't be in a relationship just for the sake of it be in a HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP for,

"Good relationships don't just happen. They take time, patience, and two people who truly want to be together."
